So, does this mean that if there was a treatment that would give you sickle-cell anemia you would take it so as to be immune to malaria?

"Also, mutations are not the only way that evolution happened (it is still happening). ... This idea is where the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection comes into play."

I don't see the author of the article denying natural selection. Please point out that part, thanks.
