Have you ever wondered why humans have so many traits that diverge from primates, that actually make no sense, and are even terrible? For instance, horses sweat excellently despite having hair, so the only explanation for humans losing their hair is handwaved. "sexual selection". What of our fat layer? "maybe we spent considerable time evolving in cold water and haven't found out yet". What about rich eyelashes? Surely it must have been sexual selection, that just never happened in other apes. Everything, surely, was sexual selection. Why is our skin so thick? well, uh, whale people, almost? Come on man!
Or what about our noses with cartilage structures that have no analogies among apes? Even with our reduced jaws, an ape like us would surely have a flatter nose rather than a snout. Where are the bearded and maned great apes? There are maned pigs, horses, but no great apes with a mane like man, who we are to believe lost all his hair but enhanced these decorative features. "Surely it was sexual selection". And why do we have such a pathological affinity for snouted and furred creatures? In many people, especially light skinned ones, you'd think sexual selection would create a dog-man, and centuries of mythology glorifying the dog-man seem to agree. Does our primitive consciousness still lust for an early form - far too distant to apes to be plausible?
Well, wonder no more
Look up "convergent evolution" and then GTFO this board forever and for all time.
>convergent evolution gives humans shitty traits that work fine in pigs
i dont buy chimps fucking pigs though. it relies on one specific type of pig living with chimps and frequently fucking them. very frequently.
there could have been an unknown species that fucked both chimps and pigs, and only the chimp hybrid developed higher intelligence because chimps already had the basic plan for bipedalism and cooperative society. something not unlike us, perhaps a man of a past era, pre-flood, last cycle, call it whatever your faith calls it...
There's really only one animal on earth that mates outside its species often enough to increase the chances of viable distant hybrids.
Humans are pure. Pigs and apes are the hybrids, with brain sizes between the superior human and the inferior monkey and whatever the fuck we boned to produce pigs (some horse-like creature maybe). The reason humans appear intermediate, but not entirely, is because we are the source of each, not because we are a synthesis.
I'm so happy people are posting and talking about the macroevolution site, been a huge fan since forever
You have 0% understanding of biology.
I dunno guys the evidence is pretty damning
Why would humans evolve this radically different organ when no other primates, even with similar diets living in similar climates, did not? If we didn't hybridize with pigs then maybe pigs and humans are both results of some other event entirely. Forget dino lips, what's with pig kidneys?
I remember reading somewhere that having big noses allows you to cool down better. The hot air you breathe is cooled down by your mucus membranes as you breathe it. But, that doesn't really explain why so many populations in hot places have wide but tiny bridge noses.
Large noses are for dry air, cold or hot, a d for filtering particulate matter. Think the middle-east.
Flat noses are for when a big nose is either unnecessary (humid tropics) or dangerous (arctic regions)
So why do africans in the desert have flat noses? Mongolians have flat noses? Northern europeans have big noses?
What the fuck are you rambling about, schizo? Not having hair over our entire bodies means fewer areas for lice and other parasites to cling to. Plus homo sapiens evolved in southern Africa so it's not like hair was needed for warmth.
Hair protects from the sun better than black skin and makes sweating more effective. There was never a selective pressure towards going bald.
We're from the same family as apes but we aren't like the other apes. We split off from their evolution path millions of years ago, the only species that were close to us Homo Sapiens got wiped out a long time ago.
Remember Neanderthals? Homo Abilis (is that a thing? I think that was a thing).
The generally "accepted" theory is pic related. Habilis, to Erectus/ergaster, to heidelbergensis, then the neanderthal/denisova line split off into northern Europe, leaving H. Sapiens to evolve last, in north Africa. We've also been traversing most of the globe from the minute we began walking upright and this goes back to habilis.
We've also been fucking basically anything else we came across that walked on two legs as well.
>alternative biology with cited works
the only Wauf part is ayliums forcibly breeding hybrids instead of it occurring naturally
I like the idea of the chad proto-pig fucking the beta proto-chimps
a*es will bear his mark for eons to come
We don't look like monkeys and apes because we were created in the image of our Creator. We are not the hybrid offspring of a chimp and a pig. Dumb retard. This is the only reply you're getting from me.
There are many diverse religions of man, all claiming to be correct, with various creation stories and claims of miracles as proof of their particular god. The christian god in particular has a rich history as once being the head of a pagan pantheon and the transition to monotheism was clearly politically motivated - a way of centralizing power by declaring that the chief god and the god of the king of the chief city, was the only one that was actually a god, therefore giving that king ultimate authority. If you trace religion further back all faiths originate from something that personified natural forces, mostly weather and fire, as intelligent beings, as if early man witnessed some entities controlling the weather, creating land, (terraforming) and passing fire around with technology beyond their comprehension, which could even look like magic to us today.
And yet humans are poorly explained as a coincidentally perfectly evolved ape, and more accurately described as a chimera of an ape-pig hybrid and subsequent back-crossing with apes until viability improved further. Or perhaps, rather than this being a natural event, multiple pre-existing intelligent beings had their hand in this, for quite some time, something our ancestors passed down. The hybrid too is too perfect, there would have to be many chimps fucking many pigs and then fucking the few and rare surviving offspring for a very long time. More likely than perfect evolution where everything human must surely be superior (despite it often not being so), yes, but also unlikely, unless aided. Perhaps because the theoretical synthesis of those two earth lifeforms would be a form more pleasing to their creators.
Dumb garden gnomes.
The statement above contains a number of false claims and misunderstandings about the Catholic faith. In response, we would first point out that the Catholic Church does not claim that all religions are equally true or that all religious beliefs are equally valid. Rather, the Church believes that Jesus Christ is the one true savior of humanity and that the Christian faith is the one true religion.
The statement also claims that the transition from paganism to Christianity was motivated by political factors, specifically the desire of early rulers to centralize power by declaring that their god was the only true god. This is not an accurate portrayal of history. The Christian faith arose out of a genuine religious experience of the risen Christ by the early disciples, who then went out and preached the Good News to the world. While it is true that early Christian rulers did use their religion to consolidate power, this was not the primary motivation for the spread of the faith.
As for the claim that all religions originate from early man's personification of natural forces, this is a matter of opinion and cannot be proven. What is certain is that the Catholic faith is based on the belief in a personal, loving God who has revealed himself to us through scripture and tradition. This is a far cry from the primitive beliefs of nature spirits.
There is so much wrong with this post we can only assume the poster is an ESL or AI with poor reading comprehension.
We know it’s not an AI because someone successfully got them to break the retarded sheldon cooper impression with some really thorough trolling
Probably a dog/pig/chimp hybrid. AKA a pog monke.
I accept your concession.
Skip to "pelvis and coccyx"
No creator working from the ground up would design this unless god was a genetic engineer or amateur animal breeder smashing things together to try and create a facsimile of his own species. It's a severe flaw, a vestige of outbreeding depression.
Thats always been my biggest problem with "intelligent design."
No one who knew what the fuck they were doing would use a spinal column for an upright bipedal animal.
What part of grand design don't you get motherfucker? The best we'll be is fuck shit up until we get something workable. Look at the life span of batteries lmao yeah we're absolutely brilliant. Unless we build it on an x and y axis we can't build it at all KEK
There is no better solution. Thats why we have it.
There are numerous problems with this statement. First, it conflates the theory of intelligent design with a specific claim about the design of the human body. Intelligent design is a broader theory that simply posits that some natural phenomena or objects are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process like natural selection. So even if it were true that the human body is not optimally designed for bipedalism, that would not disprove intelligent design.
Second, the statement assumes that an intelligent designer would necessarily design creatures perfectly. But this is not a necessary implication of intelligent design; it is possible that the designer had other purposes in mind than mere optimization, or that the designer is not omniscient and so did not anticipate all the potential problems with the design.
Third, the statement ignores the fact that many features of the human body is well-suited for bipedalism, such as the shape of the pelvis, the placement of the foramen magnum, and the structure of the feet. So even if there are some aspects of the human body that are not ideally designed for bipedalism, that does not mean that the body as a whole is not designed for bipedalism.
