This is a question I've been thinking about for some time now. 

 

And when I saw a cartoon pic in one of the discussions here, it reminded me of this question and decided to post this thread. (Sorry if it's repeated, I didn't really check)

 

If we invented many things that help us live our lives and do our jobs much easier, will that make us evolve backwards to the point where we lose some of our naturally selected organs that give us some abilities? 

 

I know that all of us won't witness it if it happens but I'm just wondering!

The Human race is evolving but evolution has no "forward" or "backward".

We have been, are now, and will continue to evolve. What may change is the nature of the selective pressures we live under. 

Evolution has not forward or backward, up or down, higher or lower. It simply takes place.
