Do you think humans are evolving or devolving?

A little of both.

At best man (in general) is Ignorant with tendencies towards stupidity. We blindly grope our way through life with the hubris of gods and are genuinely surprised when we haven't destroyed the universe yet.

And yet for all our high ideals and moral standards, we are still ruled primarily by our emotions (as a racial tendency).

Humans are not devolving, they're reaching a moment of pause where they aren't doing any real evolving. The evolution of sciences is making survival incredibly high. But in the same respect our sciences are probably going to kill us because we continue to abuse them and neglect the after affects. It's just not possible to devolve. Once evolution begins there is really no way to go back unless the reason for the evolution changed. Such as the past we were ruled by our natural functions and animal instinct we now focus on a strange breed of the primal instinct with emotion, creating the sins that we love to hate.

Now sociologically I believe that we're devolving. The use of unrestrained media that allows people to post what they want about anything breaks the idea of civil society and allows people to go back to a more primal state socially because they feel less connected with the rest of the world.
It's like the media has closed doors, but opened windows in which you can shout at your neighbors from, but with the safety that they can't open your door.

But evolution is strange like that. and I must confess, part of the great mystery.
