If evolution is true, is evolution random or not.

Both. Evolution is the non-random selection of randomly varying replicators.

Humans have been drowning for millions of years, why dont we have gills yet?

How does being able to breathe underwater enable you to mate more successfully?

Come to think of it, maybe you shouldn't answer that...

Because we drown because we get our primary vital resources from the earth and the atmosphere?

If God created us and pronounced us "good," why don't we have gills?

We had gills, fuckwit.

Because we learnt to swim.

Because we aren't fish... or didn't that small fact escape your notice? We don't live in the water, it isn't our natural environment.

Humans have been drowning for millions of years

Only if you count the earlier hominids. Modern humans have only been around for the past couple hundred thousand.

Also, I thought you fundies believed in a 6000 year old world?

After a couple of millions of generations of selecting for aquarial traits we might...

Everytime I see a post like this on this site, I can't help but think about that quote. Eventhough it's taken from its original context, it fits perfectly.

I dunno, why didn't god give you some?

Because if women could breath through slits in their necks their chances of getting pregnant would actually (ahem) go down ?

Um...because those who drown are dead and it's damned hard to reproduce after death?

Eejit.

Gills: gave 'em up. Sometime after giving up reproducing by splitting in two like the rest of the amoebas.

Tails: didn't need them anymore.

Ho hum

The actual reason is because you didn't take the Third Oath. Ia!

Cos gills would stick togther when we're on land and we would suffocate.

"Humans have been drowning for millions of years, why dont we have gills yet? "

Is this an example of unintelligent design?

@Brain in a Jar:

But, if you don't take the third oath you can never get to Yha-nthlei! Shoo, what sort o' Marsh kin would want that?!

Humans also get hit by trains, but that doesn't make every one of us complete idiots who think we are stronger than the train.

Humans have fished for a long time, why can't fishes breath air?

Yeah man, living in the water creates gills, like in ceteceans, pinnipeds and aquatic turtles


oh wait

3/12/2008 1:03:00 PM

Urh

Hey Fist Ace, want to "evolve" some gills!?!?!? Here, these concrete shoes will do the job.
