The Slow Extinction of Man
The human template is female. For a baby to become a boy, requires for the “Y” chromosome to kick in a few weeks after birth.
The “Y” chromosome is passed on from father to son. Unlike some other chromosomes, the “Y” is unable to repair itself and so is gradually getting weaker.
In every generation of men, a mutation takes place in 1%. This mutation reduces the man’s fertility by 10%.
It is therefore inevitable that man, not necessarily woman, could become extinct.
It is estimated that if unchecked, man could be extinct in 125,000 years.
Now you think that if man became extinct, it would follow that women soon after would become extinct: not necessarily.
Experiments are under way to use the genetic material of one female, to fertilize the eggs of another.
It is estimated that in the next few years, we will see the first baby that has genuine parents who are both female.
This child, who would have two biological mothers, should be perfectly normal in all respects, except one.
The baby would have no “Y” chromosome and so could not become a boy.
Is this the way that mankind, sorry, humankind were meant to evolve, with the extinction of man leaving a race of just one sex?
Men should not step aside yet though, there may still be hope, so do not pass the reins to the females too quickly.
125,000 years is a long time and even a reasonable time even in evolutionary timing.
Is it possible that in this time, the “Y” chromosome will evolve and become sturdier?
