Are human beings done evolving?

Once the demographic transition is complete, evolution stops. It stops because children no longer die and there are enough mates for anyone who's willing to mate.
No. That doesn't eliminate competition for mates, nor does it address the impact of other impediments to mating, such as health issues.

Evolutionary pressures may function differently today than a few hundred years ago, but they still function.
