Is the human species still evolving?
No. morally, humanity is clearly devolving especially while a minority special interest group that dare not be criticized has its greedy claws on world finances and the media.
(Insert X-Men reference here)
We're all evolving for example we are getting faster and faster in track and CC
Because you're training more, and now we have steroids and other medication that increase muscle mass
We weren't evolving to begin with, we're just adapting to our ever changing surroundings. Like animals
The bodies are evolving no matter what from diseases
Nope, but our devices are and are taking over our life's and we just get dummer
For the human species to be evolving, we would have to have people with certain traits dying without having offspring. Since almost everyone is able to have kids, definition ally we can't be evolving. Changing sure, but my evolving
That isn't how evolution works. Changes are constantly happening and if the organisms with those changes reproduces those changes can be passed on and even amplified.
That's exactly how evolution works. For a species wide change to occur, people without that trait would have to die off without having offspring, otherwise that gene is no more likely to be passed on
Look at youth that can't take their eyes off a screen, than look at a coal miner in the mountains and a office worker in Florida, than look at a fighter pilot from WWII.
Not a single one looks, acts, speaks or walks the same.
THAT IS EVOLUTION
My mom says that the proof that evolution is not real is that if it was real moms would have more than two arms
Sad/hilarious that people are still blindly believing in a unscientific fairytale like evolution.
How is unscientific its a theory your a dumbass Christian that thinks the bible is science
Tolerant, accepting, moral filled liberal atheist here folks ^
Many of the things on that list are either untrue or taken out of context or just blind conjecture. Ex: It claims we have no transitional fossils, yet what is Lucy? What about the countless homo- species (Erectus, Sapien ect) that we've found?
Whether you believe that we evolved or not, you can't deny that we are evolving now. I personally believe that humans didn't come into being from evolution, but we are always evolving.
A necessary condition for Darwinian evolution is an exterior pressure to survival, ie a threat that causes humans with a common characteristic to die off. This isn't happening. We are not evolving.
No such thing as evolution. Only God has power
Humans have only been around for around 200,000 we evolved from homo rhodesiensis and it took them around 400,000 years to evolve into homo Sapiens we share a common ancestor with the gorilla witch live around 6-8 million years ago
I rode my unicorn to work today to.
humans are getting more and more retarded
says every aging generation ready to get replaced by a new generation. at least we haven't had to deal with ww3 yet, so that's a plus right?
Ww3 would be a good thing as long as retard North Korea used went nuclear witch I don't think they would do
Humans are getting smarter and smarter human learn from each other
HELL NO! Not from what I've seen!
Evolution mostly take place adapting to a new environment. While modern live removes harsh environments which would mean evolution wouldn't happen. But we could evolve to be smarter or for example use medicine more effectively biologically.
That isn't really evolution but rather survival of the fittest that you're thinking about. Survival of the fittest directs evolution by deciding which changes will be passed on, but changes will always be taking place.
Changes will only be passed on for a whole species if natural selection occurs. While individuals may have mutations, as a species (which was the subject of this question) this is not the case, we aren't evolving
they say we will have smaller brains to be more calmer, less jaw muscle, less foot muscle, and we will smell viruses.
As long as you are alive you are evolving as a person.
No we never have
we have evolved ever since the beginning if human life
We have evolved ever since the very first organism in our chain of life.
Not at the moment but possibly in the future. At this point in time it's devolving.
Things are constantly evolving and changing. :)
Yes. At least in the U.S.. We're dumbing down quite nicely.
One of humanity's most recent evolved traits is the ability to digest dairy.
Some are getting better, some are getting worse.
If we're still mutating and breeding then yeah we're evolving. I can't wait till we can take it to the next level and force mutations or gene selection in a more precise manner. That'll be awesome!
Lord, I hope not. Ever seen the movie Idiocracy?
I thought that this article was a bit silly, then I saw the author. It all makes sense.
Bill Nye isn't just some average guy that dresses up as a scientist and reads lines off cards. He actually has many degrees in science and is very smart, but his silly persona on "Bill Nye the Science Guy" makes people question his knowledge. Don't.
Lol at the fact that 79% say yes but the majority of comments say no. The vocal minority.
wouldn't we be getting shorter? 60 years ago television was only black and white and took 2grown men to move, today we can watch videos in the palm of our hand, most things get smaller as they improve with age.
Well, not according to Apple. ;)
Theirs iPhones are just getting larger and larger!! :)
are we getting taller?
it did change i did not deny that. It did not evolve though, in the sense where it turned into a different species. Evolution says that you can change species and thats what i disagree with. Yes, if you put a group of 1 million dogs to the South Pole
Evolution doesn't have to be speciation.
It never did
Idiots, its aging. We don't "evolve".
That makes no sense.
So we don't age.. Because that makes sense..
I know we age, but how does that affect evolution?
That is a breakdown, not a "change" nor an advancement
No one says aging is evolving. Evolution happens over many generations.
OMG crusader is a perfect example of the religious freaks trying to drill more bull shit into peoples eyes in SOH
i don't support evolution but i still dont know what you are saying crusader
Republican- "Evolution isn't real!!!"
Not a republican. But it is a fake. A fairytale for the worshippers of Darwin.
hey at least crusaders view is a dying one and he's in the minority and that will continue to be the progression of our species' view. all hale science and information! science kills superstition (to an extent at least)
2000 years; still running. How many fools just like you have tried and failed just miserably as you will? "Hail science" that's a laugh..
Progression of the species that is only aging and becoming more animal like by the day. Good theory; real "scientific"
2000 years and what's still running? I don't understand what exactly you're trying to say there. I wasnt talking about Christianity. you do realize the the Catholic Church recognizes evolution? we are not becoming more animal; we are animals.
No it does not. Some foolish Popes have made some ignorant statements, but the Church is against "evolution". So animals are turning back into animals ? That's evolution? No, thats a contradiction, and more aptly named "devolution"
I always get a kick out of people who claim science to be 100% correct. Science itself evolves as we gain more knowledge. How many things have been "proven" by science only to be disproven later on?
Pope Pius XII and John Paul II came out in favor of evolution long before Pope Francis. Oh Crusader, you are an ardent Catholic and don't even know what your kings have preached.
That "stupid pope" is supposed to speak directly with god and all he says is supposed to be infallible.
Pope Pius XII condemned evolution, and JPII was a fool. Look it up.
The Pope is not infallible in his opinions. You are completely ignorant and its shows.
The guy who thinks the earth is only 9,000 years old and birth control is murder doesn't get to call anyone ignorant.
I'm ignorant and you're the one who thinks that your religious beliefs hold any merit in scientific debate.
The earth is, in fact ~9000 years old. And yes, BC is equatable to murder. You have a false faith in science. I have a Faith in the religion that created science. Without my faith, you would still be a barbarian.
That's a joke. Look at all the things that have been done in the name of your god and tell me again that your faith is the reason we aren't barbarians.
And if you think that my Faith specifically won't have any bearing on your life, you will be mistaken. There is only one Truth. And if you think the lie that is America will last, that too is a mistake.
Ok well have fun being a religious fanatic.
damage, the scientific method is the best way possible to discover what is real in our world. being able to assimilate new information that contradicts old info is a good thing. blindly following someone/group just bc they say so is a bad thing.
Not saying it's a bad thing, but putting someone's religion down and claiming science is infallible is incorrect and hypocritical.
I believe that my religion and science coexist and actually support each other rather than contradict.
Actually it is devolving. The purpose of evolution is to make a species stronger and better able to adapt and survive. Humans are becoming dumber and more dependent. The stupid and weak are rewarded to keep breeding.
Devolving not a thing, it's still evolution.
I do not know an argument that would say we just suddenly stopped evolving.
Every living thing is always evolving in someway, including humans.
They never did.....
Humans are actually devolving. Our bodies are weaker because medicine has eliminated the survival of the fittest.
And I know Christianity is viewed as illogical by a majority of people, but answer me this question how can something be created by nothing?
The question that they can't answer. That, and the fact that order can't come from chaos.
If evolution is true, then why do inferior species such as apes still exist? And how do you evolve from something that kills you? Seems highly unlikely to me. AND Google search OOPARTS. They poke holes in the fossil record.
I hope not, I kinda like the idea of Xmen as fictional characters
Wow it's sad to see that 78 percent of our nation believes in evolution.
Why is that sad? It's the best theory out there
You think 'magic and talking snakes' is more likely? Come on man...
I want to make a point Here, how is having faith in something you can not quite prove such as evolution or the Big Bang different from having faith in a man who died on the cross
Evolution has been proven. The fact that you think it's unproven says volumes about how much you fundamentally know about it.
Then how is it that it is stilled called the theory of evolution and not the law of evolution?
Because in science, things have very specific definitions. A scientific theory is tantamount to fact. The theory of evolution, like the theory of gravity, is lot a law because a law describes a very specific type of phenomenon. Whether something is a
law or theory in science is descriptive of the nature of the phenomenon being described, not how justified/proven each is.
The definition of a scientific theory is a statement based on a collection of ideas, observations and hypotheses but CAN STILL BE PROVEN WRONG.
"God" and "evolution" are not mutually exclusive. Man invented time and now some Christians want to put God in their man made box.
I have one more thing to stay and that is this clearly nothing I can say will change your opinion and nothing I will say can change my opinion, but I just hope you will find Christ some day,
And I know Christianity is viewed as illogical by a majority of people, but answer me this question how can something be created by nothing
R u referencing me? Not that it's your business, but I'm a Christian and do know Christ. In fact I try and follow His teachings all the time. Wish more "Christians" did. When He created the world is the least of my concerns. Just know it's beautiful.
My apologies to you it was meant to be pointed toward the person how called scripture magic
i was just reading these comments. since when was evolution proven? We've seen adaptation but not evolution. Please educate me on how we proved evolution veritas. Also, to the guy who said "talking snake": This is coming from the guy who believes tha
that believes that a fish turns into a walrus lol
Btw DBuehrer, I would'nt say we are STILL evolving but we are evolving, not in the way evolutionist believe, evolution isn't a bad word it has just been given a bad name.
Vertias it is a theory. Don't get arrogant
You have seen as much evolution as the other guy has seen religion
Every species is a god exampe is that humas are taller then they used to be. And blue eyes didn't even exist until 10,000 years ago (I believe)
I'd say devolving!
I love how we frame scientific facts as subjective questions I. Society.
It's a theory, by its own definition not a fact.
Bitch, learn some science... And learn the context and get back to me. Btw did you know that crusader an jihadist are synonyms?
I seem to remember a "law of thermodynamics" not a "theory". Don't try to "redefine" things to fit your fairytales friend. Btw, swearing makes you look even more foolish then believing in the nonsense of evolution.
Also, don't you find it odd that the Crusaders, that is, is Roman Catholics are the only ones able to defeat the muslims ? What an embarrassment for the "secular state" of the "enlightenment" to be beaten by the barbarians.
Is it germ law or germ theory? A law is like an equation you fool...
The word "law" has a meaning.
Go back to church troll boy the grow ups are talking...
Go to the library and grab a dictionary.
Dictionary? Thems a devil book! Burn it 4 jesus!!!
Funny how you're making fun of Protestants and somehow trying to direct that toward me..
There's room for all stupid religions in the history of book burning.
I would still burn books today, of that were actually effective. Dictionary doenst fit. Just trash like Darwin and all the other atheist garbage. Oh, and the pseudo science you worship.
I voted yes. And in the link...watching Bill Nye shadow box...I couldn't help but wonder if he is the love child of Leonard Nimoy and Ian McKellen. I kept seeing Spock, then Magneto, as he was dancing around...
every species is always evolving.
Yes, and like most things, some is good and some bad.
