Humans evolved into what we are now per effect of natural selection. Humans taking more advantage for developing larger brains and walking in upright position are good evidences of the effects of natural selection. However, we can say that with such advantage of having higher intellectual levels, humans are no longer subject to the same pressures of natural selection as with other organisms. With inherent intelligence, humans develop capabilities to overcome pressures and restrictions imposed by natural selection and have the capabilities to control or engineer their environment. For example, the worldwide use of birth control methods now makes those considered to be the fittest no longer able to pass on their genes to develop next generation offspring. It is now made possible for those infertile to produce offspring. With technologies and advances in medicine, those who seem to be unable to overcome the challenges of natural selection are now able to live longer and normal lives. Every facility is developed to combat natural selection. Modernization of the
