Is This What Humans Will Look Like In 50 Million Years?

While I find it impossible highly unlikely that humans will still exist in 50 million years, it's horrifying fun to see what some scientists artists think we will look like at the end of eternity.

According to these illustrations by madman speculative zoologist Dougal Dixon, humans will evolve into some sort of organ shaped being, with yucky cute trunk tail and our own built in bat wings umbrellas.

The illustrations were published in Omni magazine in the early 1980s, and I can't help but wonder- would Dougal arrive at the same horrifying interesting conclusion if he were asked to draw future humans again today, or would modern scientific discoveries force him to simply leave the page blank?

No way. If 'humans' don't have breasts and procreative organs in really huge sizes by then, well... I just don't see it happening.
And there's no way a female 'human' would be hanging out on a tree or anywhere else without her purse or wearing the latest style of clothing. If clothing isn't an option 50,000 years from now then we might as well pack it in now.
