The basis of evolution is selection of parents

e.g. Selective breeding

All animal breeders have produced weird and amazing results, by using selective breeding.
For an example, this extremely muscular cow. Farmers do not have the technology to genetically modify DNA.
They did it through selection of parents ( choosing the most muscular bulls/cows to breed with ).


I can create the effect of evolution too. If i had the power.
If i killed every person born that had chest hair or grew chest hair later in life, and continued for many generations.
There wont EVER be another person born that will grow chest hair. ( because there wont be any chest haired parents to pass on their traits to their children )
THEN I can say that the human race evolved, into a non-chest haired organism.


The human race was spread across a wide area and was separated for a long period of time
they all had different living conditions and environments
you can see the changes through our appearance in different races
if we were separated long enough, we would have evolved into different species
but now we have similar living conditions and we are widely connected through various transportation
and many people from different races live all around the world
gradually the differences in our races will disappear.

Not only that, I can have a thesis as to why we have morals and guilt
Morals and ethics not only helps families function, it helps a community survive and sustain itself
It has to do with survival, helping each other is extremely useful
Through the years, nations with stronger moral within a community meant that they would survive through wars
This is also why violence is in our nature


Please leave your opinion..

It would be awesome if stupidity was in the genes.

Were there a parasite that ate all people with chest hair, this post would have a point.

Well, technically: evolution is the adaptation of a species to its environment through the process of natural selection. Selective breeding however, is a form of artificial selection which purpose is to increase the benefit for humans.

Is that really evolution? Ehhh...

no its not really evolution, but it has the exact same effect

im just trying to show that evolution exists, even in the human world
and since not many people on crunchyroll live in jungles, i had to use selective breeding as an example

Evolution describes the changes in a specie's genetic makeup over time. How that change occurs doesn't matter, as long as there are changes then it is considered evolution.

They're doing that in China. They are pairing up their athletes with co-athletes. E.g. Yao Ming's parents, Yao Ming and current gf. By doing so, they sort of 'manufacture' human beings to suit up the physical requirement needed in order to be successful in a certain sport/discipline.

what's wrong with a hairy chest? it makes me think of wolfman when i see that lol
Posted 4/24/09
well what did you think they did with slaves back in the old days, they did it to produce the strongest off spring to work in the fields and also live longer etc. I would not say that it is evolution but selective breeding is pretty close to that the only way it would be some from of evaluation if all races where to mix in to one off spring.

If people are making the biggest/strongest/ whatever organisms breed and letting the smaller weaker ones die, the genes of the smaller ones are being eliminated from the genome, which is a change in the genome over time, which is evolution.

whats wrong with that?

man kind should bread the most strong with the most smart, and leave the weak and stupid out of it. They should not have the right to mate.

It seems evil but its the best hope for man kind to survive another 10,000 years or so.

I don’t really know that anybody questions evolution’s existence in this nature. What some people doubt is that evolution is the origin of life.

Breeding with rich people is something I look forward to. Too bad. I'm not rich. lol

There should be nothing wrong with that UNLESS a person's freedom is violated. Though I guess it is no problem to most people in most cases.
