Breaking News: Evolution Over...

We had a great time with Sarah's dad here in Venice last week. He has some provocative ideas, one of which is that the process of natural selection has been replaced with human, intellectual selection. In other words, our steady dominion over the planet has snatched the course of evolution away from Nature and put the big choices about our future squarely into our own hands. Like it or not, who stays, who goes, how hot it will be, what qualities are favorable, and what defines "the fittest" is now a system we manage. We are the deciders. This should go smoothly.
