Human evolution is over... it's even regressing!

Professor Steve Jones, genetist at the University College London, says so. Basically, he (and others) contend that human progress in science, the fact that our health has made us older and less proliferative, is bringing the West civilization to a stop in evolution.

His thinking is ethnocentric (not to say racist) and actually is no news, but I kinda agree with him. We are decadent here in the West. More than decadent, we are suicidal (global warming, unchecked unreasonable financial trading, overarmed and led by idiotic and dangerous guys).

But are we all Humans like our fellow Lemmings?

Lemme be shocking. When I saw this vid about lemmings, frankly, I thought about the immigrants who are ready to die in order to reach our shores. As one good friend of mine says:

"If a guy is able to cross the desert, swim the oceans, scape the Police, charm a woman and reproduce, we should let him stay in our country! He's the best that evolution has made of a Human!"
If we follow this way of thinking to its extremes, it would validate the way the Western countries are building walls around them to prevent immigrants to enter our beloved financially chalenged paradises: the more you make it harder, the more only the best Humans are coming to us!!! Yay!!!

Okey, stop the joke. I hope we would never go as low as this. But... what if more than stopping, the Westerners were regressing in evolution?
