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?
Working as intended.

The larger and more successful a population is, the less they would benefit from further selection. Mutation is still possible, and some have the potential of becoming dominant and being passed on, but it is going to be a far slower process than in a smaller and more competitive population.
