So has our population become too large to further evolve? Wouldn't mutation in the human species get weeded out far faster than it could take over?
I have read that medical and social progress has interfered with the workings of natural selection. We no longer have the weak and less adaptable dying off just leaving the better adapted to pass on their genetic legacy.

I have also heard that as the less intelligent tend to have larger families, as the population grows it is the less mentally able that make up a bigger and bigger proportion of it. Mankind is getting dumber.

I don't know if these points are correct, but they sound as if they might be...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
