In terms of major evolutionary changes, I think we're done. There are no evolutionary pressures anymore now that our weak can survive and I don't think we will have a major evolution as long as our tech keeps improving
This. For a man with the great Hitch as his avatar, I'd expect nothing less. Look people, we aren't surviving in the wild anymore, natural selection isn't swaying our breeding for a particular favorable trait. You and I aren't kicking it in the swamps, breeding with the females that can swim better away from gators, better tolerate mosquito bites, who can climb trees better to get away from predators because their fingers are longer, who have keener eye sight during twilight because of some new mutation that arose in our group, yadda yadda yadda.
No we are just sitting on our asses, eating shit, collecting a check, going home and living under roofing, electricity provides the comfort, and well there you go.... we need not to evolve anymore in order to survive
... one day though, I would like to see our conscious be uploaded into a form of robotics or digital "being". That may be classified as evolution
