	On the other hand, there is currently only one Species of human.

	It certainly is possible for humans to evolve into a new
species, but it won't necessarily be "superior" - evolution
is not guided, except by the conditions which encourage or
discourage particular traits, and those traits are only
superior insofar as they encourage survival of their possessors.

	It could even happen that a new species is "inferior" (eg,
less intelligent) than the current human average.

	But again, there is currently only one Species of human.
