And then I recalled how I heard the argument that “evolution is over”: progress in medicine means no more natural selection. Except, if evolution has reached a plateau and I am not just a glial/expendable member of the gene pool, yet I am still single and grandma’s giving up hope on great-grandkids, what’s going on?
