The basic argument behind this is that the human jaw is shrinking. This shrinkage may be due to diet, hormonal intake, or some other factor. Evolutionists claim that the need to remove wisdom teeth is a sign that we are evolving, we are losing the need for these teeth, therefore the mouth is shrinking.
Like Morris, I do not see this as support for evolution. Even if it is due to evolutionary changes, it is a poor example.
