I am wondering what the above phrase actually means ....... i.e.
a) Humans are far more evolved than animals.
b) I should tell her I don't like her new hairdo? I am way more evolved than that.
Your assistance in explaining the above would be greatly appreciated.
In the first, "evolved" is being used in a Darwinian sense. This involves evolution over thousands of years. [From a biological standpoint, it is a silly sentence for a number of reasons, including that humans are animals.]
In the second "evolved" is being used to describe a level of personal development -- in this case, the development of tact.
