I couldn't really find anything about this via Google, so I thought I'd pop on down to my favorite place in the interwebz! So obviously evolution in early man was in an overall advantageous direction, but what about now, in modern man? Back then evolution in humans would have worked similarly as it does in nature as it does today, survival of the fittest. But now with social stigmas against discrimination in any aspect, along with technology, and our ability to more effectively "piggy-back" off one another, the effects of natural selection in humans would have to be very much diminished, right? (Aside from infertility and or other conditions that would render one incapable of reproducing). But, based on the conditions included in the sticky about evolution, we should still be evolving. On the whole, would that evolution still be progressive? Or would it be more of a side step?
