The idea in the following story (supplied by Elf Hellion) that humanity will, over next millennium, divide into Herbert George Wells' Eloi and Morlocks poses a couple of problems for the Doc who sprawls discontentedly. For a start, I kinda figured humanity was already devolving into 500 lb snack-gorging Fox-watchers, and those of still capable of at least minimal reason and empathy.

“Humanity may split into two sub-species in 100,000 years' time as predicted by HG Wells, an expert has said.

People would become choosier about their sexual partners, causing humanity to divide into sub-species, he added.
