In the evolutionary scale, man is the current existing species at the top level.
By what measure?

Whatever that is accepted from the unicellular organism to man.
Your second sentence makes even less sense than the first.
A bacterium is is morphologically less complex than humans, but in evolutionary terms it is just as successful. And I doubt you could really make a case that humans are the most morphologically complex animal. As ramoss said, we may be the most technologically skilled, but technology does not necessarily correlate with "fitness" in the evolutionary sense.
So, what is this "evolutionary scale" you're talking about? Does it relate to the topic in any way?

Re: Considering rapid rate of mutation
We had After Man in the house when I was growing up! My siblings and I enjoyed it until the binding disintegrated.
Still findable used on Amazon!
