    Yes, humans and all living organisms are evolving as they progress from one generation to the next through their offsprings. Evolution of all species do not stop or end until the it become extinct. This how all organisms adapt to the constant pressure of the ever changing environment they live in to survive.

    Are they still exposed to outside influences (e.g., the environment) and permitted to reproduce?  Yes, of course they are!  Therefore, gene shuffling, mutations, and "natural" selection is still occurring, resulting in an evolutionary trajectory that differs based on the population in question.  How can humans NOT be evolving?  Humans are not "special" organisms.  Even "pure-bred" and "clonal" animals evolve.  It simply requires a functional understanding of evolution.  The only way for humans to "stop" evolving is for every baby to be constructed in a lab from a single DNA sequence (resulting in a species that is entirely male, female, or both).

    For me Its a Big No....humans change their life styles and appearances due to the adaptation of their living environment & availability of resources in environment they live in...but creating differnce in species or Originating a new species is all God's business...its under the power of Almighty to make or destroy anything....and believing in the humbugs of evolution is simply doubting God and his power !

      It's too bad we don't have any physical evidence to support your claims of supernatural involvement...perhaps if you actually learned about Evolution, you would understand what it means and how it operates. In fact, give this a try: define a species.

      C JREx, as a Bio graduate i'm well aware of all the theories scientists give for life & evol. so far..I'm a firm believer of God & He needs no evidence in his support & i'm sure all true followers of Bible & Quran have d same mind set

      Being a Biology graduate doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a firm grasp of Evolution anymore than saying that every graduate of med school understands Psychiatry.  You wouldn’t speak as such if you actually knew what Evolution meant.
