Do not say such blasphemous things. They have Technology Beyond Our
Comprehension, and can therefore Do Anything. :)
I don't think hoax is the rights word here. It's quite simply a lie.
Anyway, thats off-topic, isn't it?

Perhaps. The natural selection is still working, although it has different
criteria nowadays. Today it is no longer survival that is the selection, but
the lack of contraceptives. This means that low-educated or highly religous
people gets more kids than others. If any of this is a genetic trait, I
wouldn't know, but I is at least socially inherited.

>From this conclution, the world will be populated by low-educated religous
people. Which it of course already are, so I guess it's no super-race,

Unless large parts of the world gets a Hitler complex and tries to breed a
superiour race, I personally don't think it will happen.

This is impossible, since if you invent time travel, time becomes just another
dimension. Then people will start time travelling all around the place, and
then we would know about it.
