Evolution?

Now History Channel's telling about all the nuclear bombs from the Cold War, and how they had all kinds of goofs and lost them here and there. And, the complexity of the triggering systems, etc., and the newsreel showed these airmen sitting in these very boring looking briefing sessions in which they were being trained to operate a "safe" Strategic Air Command. This reminded me of the irony of AK-47 inventor Mikhail Timofeevich Kalashnikov's motto "All that is complex is not useful. All that is useful is simple."

Are we really evolving?
