Very interesting read on recent Evolutionary advancements!

The New Science of Human Evolution - Newsweek Technology - MSNBC.com

ad good example of how all scientific theories get revised and worked on to better understand them, and our universe. This article shows how scientists have been using the DNA of Lice to help trace when humans lost body hair and started wearing cloths. i'ts a good article, read it!

Good article!

It reminds me of this one

another great article!

what i love about articles like these, is they stress the flexiblity and abliity of scientific theories to morph and--through no unintention--evolve as our understanding evolves. Religion would force us to keep the same mindset no matter the contrary evidence...

science welcomes change, because that means a theory get's only that much closer to the truth!

Hey so speaking of evolution maybe someone can help me out...


How the **** does evolution work? I was watching that planet earth and wondering, how is it that almost every creature on the north pole is white? How did they evolve to know to make themselves white? How does a penguin species from the north pole have the same color scheme as a penguin species from the south pole and another one from Australia? How is it they are all black and white? Unless you believe in God, you have to assume that these creatures didn't start out these colors. They evolved over time to adapt to the snow color or whatever. But how? How does it happen?

Can it be intertwined with Quantam Theory? Where maybe all of the molecules that makes everything up can be manipulated some how and change? Could it be intertwined with "intention"? Which is a theory that all humans are capable of making things happen by thinking about them somehow.

Also, doesn't anyone else find it wierd that animals can speak to each other telepathically? I don't know if it's like a proven scientific fact or whatever, but it's pretty much common sense. When a group of birds is flying how do they all know when to take sharp turns and whatnot? If humans are so much smarter than animals why aren't we able to do ESP whenever we want?

But mainly how the hell does evolution happen?

you don't evoolve "to make yourself" something. look at black people, the melonin in their skin increased as a defense mechanism against the harsh UV rays due to no shade. think like that. polar bears are white because it helps them blend in. Evolution is a reaction to natural selection; after a while, those succesful genetics get passed on, and evolution works its magic.

as for birds following formation, it has to do with the air patterns and currents which they instinctively know how to navigate. they don't "communicate" telepathically the way to go, they just follow the path, like wildabeast; they all follow each other and can independantly confirm the way.

I know that, but what I am asking is HOW things evolve. How does it happen? How does the bears fur know to turn white over time? It didn't start out as a white bear. How did the octopus evolve to be able to change colors? How does it happen is what I am asking. I know why things evolve, but how. Something has to control how certain animals change right? Obviously the animals aren't doing it themselves. Who tells the genes to change for the next generation? Who controls that? Before the polar bear was white, how did the genes know that the world around them was basically all white enough to change a little bit for each generation until however many generations later the polar bear is finally solid white.

I may have given some bad examples but after watching the planet earth show I've seen tons of evidence of animals talking to each other telepathically. And even if they aren't talking to each other and it's all just instinct, I still think that's kind of crazy.

things to occur on the quantum level... so you can make a case for some sort of telepathy by saying that thoughts can conceivably, from time to time, be transmitted through matter and energy waves to someone in tune with you...

hey, women who live together get their periods together... hows that for interesting!

well, i guess it's my theory, but it works right? i mean, if we accept that all our existance is is an assemblance of molecules, magnetic fields and energy, then even our thoughts are part of that interaction. we know this by doing brain scans and seeing what goes on during various activities. like pleasure has a reaction in the brain. that's just the aknowledgment of electro-chemical impulses... or long-term memory; data stored somewhere in our brains, but yet no molecule of our body at this moment is the same as it was years ago...

so if a thought is part of all that, then it has repricussions on the quantum level, i guess. every single atom and molecule and whatever interacts with at the very least, another one.

air isn't the absence of anything, it's a gas, made up of all sorts of chemicals and molecles. nothing is "empty". so if a thought can send a wave of causality out, isn't it possible that some other person could pick up on that in some way? who knows...

can you tell i've been "reading" tonight?
