Humans Evolving More Rapidly Than Ever

Wow, apparently it is the opposite of what my unscientific brain supposed, that the effect of natural selection was being hindered by modern medicine and technology. Evolution is actually accelerating, mainly due to rapid population growth and environmental factors.
Money quote:
"We're more different from people 5,000 years ago than they were from Neanderthals," said study co-author and University of Utah anthropologist Henry Harpending.

Zoinks... Those are the cats we are taught to look up to in the Bible!
