Abnormalities can become the norm in small, isolated communities, such as with this tribe in Africa.

David Attenborough was in the news recently claiming "human evolution has stopped." While the selective pressures and even the landscape for natural selection has changed drastically for humans in the post-agrarian and post-industrial world, there are still factors affecting human breeding, survival and success -- humans are certainly "still evolving."
