Every now and then some IDiot or Creationist will show up and ask one of their favorite questions: If we evolved from monkeys then why aren’t we still evolving into something else? The answer, of course, is that we are still in that process of change:
Providing the strongest evidence yet that human beings are still evolving, researchers have detected some 700 regions of the human genome where genes appear to have been reshaped by natural selection, a principal force of evolution, within the last 5,000 to 15,000 years.
The genes that show this evolutionary change include some responsible for the senses of taste and smell, digestion, bone structure, skin color and brain function.
Under natural selection, beneficial genes become more common in a population as their owners have more progeny.
It’s a slow process but even within relatively small timescales there’s evidence of change that’s being found. If we manage to survive for a few million more years chances are humans will have evolved into something hard to recognize as human.
