Do we 'evolve' during our lifetime ? or do we only evolve as a species by passing on physiological 'lessons learnt' through reproduction ?
a) what is the best age to have children (evolution wise) ? Is there a best age ? Is it the same for both men and women ? Would the children I have now be better 'evolved' than those I could have had in my twenties ?
b) does the evolutionary effect come equally from both sexes ? If men create sperm throughout their lives, but women are born with all their eggs (correct me if I'm wrong) then can both sperm and eggs receive evolutionary changes prior to reproduction ?
c) is there a cut-off age by when men shouldn't have children i.e. for the health of the child ?
NB. yes I accept that a lot of behavioural & intellectual evolution comes though living a life - but that's not the question here.
