DAVID: If humans are fiddling with DNA, is evolution over?

dhw: Whatever takes place in life’s history, including humans fiddling with DNA, is part of the evolutionary process. Do you really think the Earth and its inhabitants will be the same in a thousand million years’ time?

DAVID: I think evolution is over now, but I'm sure humans will not be here in a billion years, having destroyed ourselves.

That doesn’t mean evolution is over now. You seem to think evolution means nothing but the production of humans! Evolution simply means that all life forms descend from earlier life forms, and we do not have a clue what life forms will exist in a billion years time.
