What do you think?
Should we speed up our evolutionary process?
If so, how do we really know what nature intends for us, or even (insert religion's god name here) has in store for us.
This comment is complete and utterly stupid. We have only been studying the biology evolution of ourself for less than 150 years.
"Biological evolution is too slow for the human species," said Ray Kurzweil, futurist and author of The Singularity Is Near. "Over the next few decades, it's going to be left in the dust."

Little was done to improve the microscope until the middle of the 19th century when great strides were made and quality instruments like today’s microscope emerged. Companies in Germany like Zeiss and an American company founded by Charles Spencer began producing fine optical instruments.
Less than 150 years is less than enough time to even tell if we have evolved since then.
It is a fact that we do evolve (not from monkeys) but from one form of ourself to another. Look at ourself over time, our intelligence has greatly evolved! Our mechnical, skills has evolved! Our reason to logic and problem solving has evolved! Our immune systems have evolved!
So please don't start this off by saying "oh we never evovled!" (monkeys/apes theory aside)
Look at our long we have come from learning how to make fire, to building computers, and solving complex theoretical math problem with computers, being able to construct buildings higher than 1000 feet.
New evidence suggests humans are evolving more rapidly -- and more recently -- than most people thought possible. But for some radical evolutionists, Homo sapiens isn't morphing quickly enough.
Ever since the 40s I don't really think our immune systems have been evolving. We have become too dependant on drugs. I wouldn't be surprised if someday we might become unimmune to the simplest bacteria on Earth, and we'll be forced to give babies a shot immediately at birth!
And I don't think humans are getting much smarter since 1998/2000 to present. We have become to dependant on the computer. Most pre-teens don't have an immagination! We just google our immagination. Where are we headed?
