"Of course we are born blighted: evolution by natural selection is a malfunctioning process.. . just look at all those problems with your teeth, your back, your knees. [Giraldi]

IMO the fundamental error in this observation is the assumption that we are currently the end-point of our evolution. Why would we think evolution ends with these "malfunctions" rather than others? Who is to say that evolution would not eventually solve these issues, too? We are, however, in danger of handing our evolution over to CRISPR, gene splicing and the biology lab.
