You can’t “take control” of evolution. That would present a paradox.

Evolution is always behind you – if you change your genes that is evolution and will decide if your choice is correct. A conscious entity trying to take control of evolution is much like a man trying to eat his entire body. Wrap your head around that one!

Evolution doesn’t really have a goal, or at least not one we can understand. It doesn’t have a path – or at least one we can understand. It just is necessary to explain the existence of life. Evolution is a complex string of all events that take place, ever, like chaos theory. To say you have control over it is a sign of misunderstanding the concept.

You can control your offspring’s genes, but you cannot control evolution.
