Did you hear? We screwed it up!

Filed under: "Wow, I Had No Idea"
I knew it.

According to this report on the Times Online, human evolution is over.

Human evolution is grinding to a halt because of a shortage of older fathers in the West, according to a leading genetics expert.

Fathers over the age of 35 are more likely to pass on mutations, according to Professor Steve Jones, of University College London.

Speaking today at a UCL lecture entitled “Human evolution is over” Professor Jones will argue that there were three components to evolution – natural selection, mutation and random change. “Quite unexpectedly, we have dropped the human mutation rate because of a change in reproductive patterns,” Professor Jones told The Times.

Well, I was kinda wondering why we haven't seen any anything lately....
