    i would jokingly say,has it ever begun?  if you hold evolution as a fact, doesn't it take thousands of years to achieve a good mutation?

    No evaluation has not stopped it is constantly going on. The man of today is physically week but but intellectually strong whereas men or bygone ages were bigger and stronger but less intelligent in general. Women's bodies have changed a lot. Women of today cannot normally give birth without operation but women of even 50 years earlier even gave birth at home without much medical aid. It will go on; but we really do not know how the ultimate man will look like.
    I can imagine man 1000 years hence to have a very big head but a very small and frail body moving around with the help of machines; actually he may make himself a part of a machine in which he may live permanently till he dies.

      Cultural bias, technology does not equate smarter. How long do you think you can survive with a sharp rock in the woods? Cro Magnon skull shows that our brains have shrunk. Neanderthals had bigger cranial capacity than Homo Sapiens.

    I think so - in fact looking at the violence on a news programme on TV earlier I could believe we are devolving rather than evolving!! What an idiotic species we are at times!

    I don't believe that the evolution of anything will ever stop. Everything is always in constant forward moving motion. I agree with Seeker7 who says we're devolving as a society, but genetically we're still moving forward and always adapting.

    I wonder this when I watch something like Jeremy Kyle or Jersey Shore, but then I think that all eras have had their fools or idiots; only back in the past their faces weren't transmitted across so many platforms to such a wide audience.

    Personally when all those tiny keyboards came out  - I was trying to figure out how it would be nice to have a little bump on the end of our fingers so can type on cell phone without fingerflubbing.
