romil parikh Posted over 2 years ago Has the advancement of medicine halted human evolution? This idea is amazing. Another view could be that the human race has reached its peak in evolution. After gene therapy & modification, we literally rule over diseases/congenital anomalies. Population explosion has begun. On basis of a time line, graphically population would be represented by a j shaped curve. We are approaching the peak of the curve. After the peak, there is only one possibility, a sudden downfall of our species. In that case, either earth would be destroyed, or most probably, a new species will take over the earth. So the crux is that nature always has its own way of controlling life!
