Market fundamentalism allowing unfettered evolution to occur in the human race?
The implications of your statement when explored reveal....Modern society has negated survival of the fittest by artificially supporting the unfit in so many ways......welfare for example. There are a lot more examples that I know you understand and will pop into your head if you just roll your eyes back for a few seconds and think about it.
The funniest part being you don't understand how.

For his concept to have any credence, then the rate of passing on genes among those now on welfare would have to be lower without welfare, and there is no evidence this would be the case. They might lead shorter, less fulfilling lives, but they also would be less likely to use birth control and as we can see, people on welfare tend to have more children. More children = more "fit" from an evolutionary standpoint.
He could very well be right about evolution no longer acting on humans, but his reasoning is entirely wrong. For evolution to work, the environment has to select genes. Humans change the environment by such things as building houses, wearing clothes, carrying umbrellas and dozens and dozens of other acts(note I am not talking global warming, but if you have a house with a furnace, winter is less dangerous to you). This could, potentially, stop or reduce evolutionary effects on humans. However, the short time scale involved since we were able to significantly effect our personal environment is too small to know for sure.
The choices here are too limited.
The answer depends on how were raised and was it in a Bible based Church.
I just heard a Sunday service based on how the Bible tells us that God created Marriage.
But then we have to look at what the Bible tells us about how Jesus tells us to deal with all kinds of situations.
I have a younger Brother who is Gay and dying of Aids. How can I hate him, or fault him.
What I will do is say that it's not for me.
I have made an error in the past for not making clear that I hate no one, but that doesn't keep me from hating what some people do.
This world would be a nearly perfect place if everyone would just obey the Golden Rules as I have seen it in 21 different Religions, in nearly the exact same words.
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
