More misunderstanding of evolution

This is pretty funny:
DEAR ABBY: It's the personal isolation of people today. Business people will not answer their telephones and speak directly with customers. Individuals won't answer their phones at home, but do respond to e-mail and text messages. A generation has been schooled to keep a cell phone glued to their ears at all times instead of communicating face-to-face.

If Darwin was right, future generations will no longer require a tongue because we will no longer converse. Instead, we'll grow extra fingers with which to type and text. - RON C., SOULSBYVILLE, CALIF.

That's not how evolution works! It's amazing, you could learn this by reading just one popular-level book, or a few articles, hell I bet even reading the Wikipedia article would dispel that idiotic notion. Ron C is a moron who doesn't understand evolution at all, and apparently so is Dear Abby (which, by the way, is not in the least surprising). And that's not even dealing with the idiocy of the rest of his statement. People need other people, we always have and we always will. Social animals don't just stop being social
