Can an evolutionary path be altered by technology development?
Ok.. Time to hypothesize.. Let's say that humans were slated to evolve wings and the natural ability to fly in 100 million years. However, since we have developed flying technologies (airplanes, helicopters, balloons) and no longer need the natural ability to fly, will our "evolutionary destiny" be altered or will we still get wings in 100 million years (as if the evolutionary development is hard-coded in our genetics)??
