Anyone read this wooly headed article? It was featured on Slashdot
yesterday. Hmm...,6903,644002,00.html
"Is evolution over? Are current humans the final version? This article
presents a number of interesting theories, including the theory that 'Our
species has reached its biological pinnacle and is no longer capable of
changing.' Professor Steve Jones believes this, in part, because 'human
populations are now being constantly mixed, again producing a blending that
blocks evolutionary change.'"
