Everything we dislike about H.saps has evolved away very quickly.... in a matter of centuries. I don't buy it and when the plot depended on it, it ticked me off.

Cultural evolution moves at a different pace than biological. Consider for example how attitudes concerning slavery, women, universal human rights, etc. have changed in the last 500 years.

With the internet, cell phones, and CNN, ideas and memes spread rapidly. I suspect the pace of cultural change will increase, probably dramatically. The question is whether we end up like ST, Bladerunner, the Matrix, or South Park.
