Evolution does not subjest itself to the same rules the above sciences do. Evolution begins with the premise that it has already been proven.
It hasn't. What has been proven is adaptation, speciation, genetic drift.
The issue I have with this is the gene transfer necessary to produce new animals. The evidence just doesn't support this. The similarity between us and the large primates has been highly touted as a champion of evolution. The similarities, while the differences are ignored. If they are so similar why aren't we using ape parts for organ donations. Why did we use pig hearts? The genome is arrogantly championed as the proof, without looking at what their genome produces. If they are so similar why are all chimp parts easy to tell from human parts and human parts from chimp parts. They are not the same, that is why, nor are they similar enough to even need gene testing to verify their origin.
Gene theory is based in the belief that genes and cell behave in a predictable way. As such we are able to create vaccines, antibiotics, research therapies regarding cures for cancer and other diseases. Where is the fear of rapid random mutations? If evolution is true and we are constantly changing, how can we know that aspirin will work for our kids, grandkids? We know because we are not evolving, nor have we ever evolved. The way humans were in the Time of Jesus is the way they are now. We have not changed. sure the tools and technology have changed, but people haven't. If evolution is true should not we have changed? we still get the same diseases, we still have the same limbs in the same places. How many changes would have been necessary to bring us from great grandpa ape to today?
I have to go, life calls,
Since I graduated high school the universe has aged 10 billion years, why, has the evidence changed? no only our interpetation of it. The Theory of evolution needed more time, so it got it.
Apparently I have to insult you before I get a response. So here goes.
Are you authorized to be this inept?
There. That ought to help.
First of all. What makes you think that evolution operates under the premise that it has already been proven? Where do you get this stuff? Stupid R Us? (I tossed in another insult just to be sure.)
Evolution is subject to exactly the same rigorous tests that every other science has to deal with. I realize that makes it inconvenient for you because that means there is less to complain about, but unless you can show me some evidence that says otherwise, I am going to have to go with what I trust to be true. The study of evolution, by biologists and chemists and geologists and paleontologists and others has to toe the same line of scientific inquiry that any other science uses. Period.
We don't use ape parts for transplants because there aren't that many apes left. We've got lots of pigs, because the jews and muslims won't eat them. Thank god for small favors.
There are currently almost 100,000 people waiting for heart transplants in the US alone. The latest figure I could find says that there are only 35,000 apes in the whole world. Can you see why there might be numerical reasons for our not even trying to use such things. However, if it makes you feel better, chimp hearts have been successfully transplanted in humans.
Oh, and pig heart transplants haven't been successful enough yet, as far as I know, to be considered as a viable option. The pig heart transplants that may happen in the near future will be done with genetically modified pigs, so that the risk of rejection is reduced. And handily, pig hearts are about the same size and human hearts if the person weighs about the same as the pig.
We do use pig heart valves to replace faulty ones in humans now.
Pig hearts and human hearts are similar because we're all mammals and the pig heart has evolved to be fairly similar to the heart we humans have. Get used to it.
Then you get into the field of random mutations, and wonder why we don't fear them when we give kids aspirin and stuff. People do. The reason people sometimes react differently to certain drugs is that sometimes their genetic makeup is incompatible with the medicine. That's not so much evolution directly as it is the simple fact that we're not all identical, and that includes differences in body chemistry, etc. brought on by genetic differences.
And ordinarily the differences aren't going to show up over a few generations. It might take tens of thousands of years for a currently effective medicine to stop working in most humans. I dunno. I haven't been around that long.
But what about antibiotic soaps? They have sped up the evolution of the much simpler bacteria that at times cause diseases. There is not a new infection showing up in India that has people scared shitless. We have no treatment. And it may be because that pathogen evolved out of bacteria that could survive antibacterial soaps. And because their niche is fairly empty because of all the dead bacteria the soaps killed off, they are getting stronger faster.
Humans evolving. Actually it is probably slowing down because people are having fewer children and hence fewer variations are manifesting themselves. But again, looking at humans over a few thousands years won't show much difference. It takes longer to have easily measurable changes, and since nobody back then was taking samples, we don't know for sure what differences have occurred during that time. Two thousand years from now scientists will have a better idea because date from this period will presumably be available in some form.
Oh, the the universe aging ten billion years since you graduated from high school? You graduated ten billion years ago. So the reason should be obvious.
No, actually you were wrong when you said the evidence is the same as it was when you graduated. It's not. We know more. Research has revealed new information. And so the timeline changed. It may change again when we get even more information. If you're lucky we'll change it to 6,000 years and we'll all turn into christians. If we're lucky, it will simply be another case of modifying our theories and timelines and such based on even newer info.
