The Pros And Cons Of Human Genetics

Human genetics is a rather mysterious concept, the very genome of humanity is a code that needs to be cracked, it holds many secrets, and potentially what research has found is still just the tip of what the human race really is. It could be the files to the data that is DNA, as genetics does not just have to be what determines your appearance, your brain chemistry, and to an extent your entire way of thinking, it is much more the passing of certain immunity genes against certain diseases, features gained from environmental adaption, and even potentially skills (Or more appropriately the potential to develop skills), it is even possible Homo Sapiens aren’t even the only form of human anymore. Now this even opens the possibility of super powers/unnatural…show more content…
Even now evolution, adaption, immunization, and mutations occur by seconds in human development. However, a majority of the scientific community views these all as theories and speculation, but does that mean there are evidences and hard proofs out there? Yes, currently/commonly it can be observed in different races of people, during different eras of time, the race of each individual has at least in a practical stand point in their genetics. For example, most Africans/African-Americans have a much greater bone density than most individuals, making them more viable as athletes, workers, hunters, and soldiers. This comes from the fact as early Africa consisted of hunters and tribesmen, meaning everyone had physical work to an insane degree that had even started the stereotypes that African-Americans were pretty much some of the fastest people. Of course this does not apply to everyone, but the genetic potential is still there for future generations,…show more content…
Truly in modern society you wouldn’t even notice a Homo Ludens, we look the same, act the same. But the key difference here is that the development, it is highly possible that half of today’s millennials are pretty much Homo Ludens, as millennials pretty much share developing qualities similar to said human species at their style of development, which is “being created”, or to be specific molded due to members of the previous generation being all Homo Sapiens. For the adaptions that lead into Homo Ludens, some adaptions can just be for physical, medical, and environmental adaptions that don’t really require a long process. The adaptions don’t have to be genetic, as for example if one breaks their bones for a certain amount of time, their bones are stronger than last time. These adaptions can be carried through genes, those who develop stronger bones, their offspring can develop stronger bones. Environmental adaptions are in fact the reason why different ethnicities exist around the world. The point of it as books like Natural Selection by Charles Darwin is to let the strongest
