I never studied advanced evolution, I just studied the basics. I pass on this question. Ask something about molecules and I'll be more useful.

I'm sure during the evolution some stopped midway and kept the apes' brain. Like you.

Primitive humans are still humans, not apes. If adaptability exists in head lice and bacteria, why would it not apply to humans as well? Humans have changed based on their environs. This still has nothing to do with apes turning into men.

I've a question for you, too? Why aren't there any apes turning into men now (and no Nadal jokes, Gu )?

Re: Do You Believe In A "God"?

In my positive days, I'm an agnost. In my more realistic days, an atheist.

Would be sad if there's no Hell BTW. I'm sure I'd meet all my friends over there, must be a groovy place.

Re: Do You Believe In A "God"?

Since I don't believe in attacking, and I don't understand why others feel the need to do so ( and I do think the poster Lafuria started a thread like this back a ways). I will simply answer the thread's question:

I am not sure that I believe there is a god but I do know that I am a good jew who follows her religion. I don't believe in Heaven or Hell. I do believe in questioning my faith and living a moral life.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

Oh you know there is so much entwining of all this stuff I feel being a good doc is really an ART ( at least in clinical medicine) and hubs assures me that religion and physics have a lot in common However I think ENGINEERS are in a class all by themselves. Everything is black and white

They are a rare breed, indeed. Only an engineer could possibly think that differential equations is actually an interesting topic. I just smile and nod my head.

Wow, your ape IQ can make a joke with my username.

Pray a lot, maybe one day you'll learn how to use at least the space bar of a keyboard, blind fool.

Well, shouldn't the process take thousands and thousands of years?

Aren't primitive humans the transition?

What about the wisdom teeth, for instance? Isn't it evolution that we don't have more space for them to grow up anymore?

Nadal is by all terms the piggy, not an ape.
