I have been thinking of the evolution of the human race over time. Obviously, environmental factors have prevented those with detrimental traits from passing them on, bringing us to our current form. However, with the amount of technological advances in our current time and in the near future that allow those with these traits to live and often reproduce, would it not be true that the evolution we have undergone has either slown to a creeping pace or stopped alltogether? On the other hand, one might say that we are evolving into a species of extremely attractive and intelligent beings (because those with the genetic predisposition for these traits are the ones to most often reproduce). However, if this is true, in the distant future when everyone is attractive, what would be the new definition of beauty? Sorry for the half-bio half-psych thread, but it's been on my mind.
