Is human evolution over?  FEB 05 2002

Is human evolution finally over? The argument here is that evolution is not a huge driving force in the development of humans anymore because of globalization, the quickening pace of man's control over his own evolution (as opposed to the slow pace of natural evolution), and the fact that no one in the West dies "naturally" anymore (evolution thrives on the death of the "weak" and the survival of the "strong"). It's a fascinating theory, but I suspect that it'll prove false. Funny thing about nature...it almost always wins.
