    How much does evolution affect humans?

    The race deniers have lost a lot of battles. When anthropologists discovered africans and non-africans have been separated for 70,000 years it was a pretty big blow. Before that they said skin color changed over the course of around 10,000 years. Only it was 70,000. That would've been bad in and of itself, but... show more
    The race deniers have lost a lot of battles. When anthropologists discovered africans and non-africans have been separated for 70,000 years it was a pretty big blow. Before that they said skin color changed over the course of around 10,000 years. Only it was 70,000. That would've been bad in and of itself, but it became worse around 2007 when geneticists were able to sequence the human genome. And the first thing they found were different homologous clusters of DNA among different races. Now ancestry tests can tell you your exact race down to .01 of a percent. This one really hurt, because before there was "no biological basis in race, because I don't know what categories are, or the difference between coding and non-coding sequences are" - said the race deniers. But once we can accept that yes, evolution works in humans. Divergent evolution happened between polar bears and grizzly bears 70,000 years ago, which is almost the exact same duration non-africans & Africans have been geographically apart, until like the past 500 years or so. Now we're learning other languages and becoming more globalized, but before then they were more or less entirely separated groups. & if sociology is any guide, then Africans are not the most intelligent. Perhaps it's because of them evolving in a tropic biome for so long, which makes athleticism a much more important trait for natural pressures. In temperate biomes, alleles and genes linked to intelligence become more concentrated in that pop.

    There many unanswered issues in regards to evolution theory. Some but not all include, "Lack of a viable mechanism for producing high levels of complex and specified information. Related to this are problems with the Darwinian mechanism producing irreducibly complex features, and the problems of non-functional or deleterious intermediate stages.The failure of the fossil record to provide support for Darwinian evolution.The failure of molecular biology to provide evidence for a grand “tree of life.” Natural selection is an extremely inefficient method of spreading traits in populations unless a trait has an extremely high selection coefficient; The problem that convergent evolution appears rampant — at both the genetic and morphological levels, even though under Darwinian theory this is highly unlikely. The failure of chemistry to explain the origin of the genetic code.The failure of developmental biology to explain why vertebrate embryos diverge from the beginning of development. The failure of neo-Darwinian evolution to explain the bio-geographical distribution of many species.A long history of inaccurate predictions inspired by neo-Darwinism regarding vestigial organs or so-called “junk” DNA.Humans show many behavioral and cognitive traits and abilities that offer no apparent survival advantage (e.g. music, art, religion, ability to ponder the nature of the universe)."

  • If you and your 3rd cousin do a DNA test could the doctors tell you are related? Or is there not enough DNA for them to determine that?

    Best answer: yes they can tell you are related. They can tell you are not as closely related as parent and child or brother and sister, but they can definitely tell you are more related than you are to a random stranger you see in the street.

  • How intelligent were dinosaurs?

    Best answer: It depends on what type of dinosaur you are talking about. The intelligence of any animal depends on the size of the brain "compared to the size of the body." Tyrannosaurus Rex was quite a stupid animal compared to a Velosiraptor for example. However, Velosiraptors were not as intelligent as they were... show more
    Best answer: It depends on what type of dinosaur you are talking about.
    The intelligence of any animal depends on the size of the brain "compared to the size of the body."
    Tyrannosaurus Rex was quite a stupid animal compared to a Velosiraptor for example.
    However, Velosiraptors were not as intelligent as they were portrayed in Jurassic Park .. there is no evidence that they hunted in packs .. they certainly wouldn't have been able to turn a door handle .. they were the size of chickens .. and they had feathers.

  • Evolution can be observed in the short life cycles of fruit flies. So why do people say that there is no evidence for Evolution?

    If the flies are separated for many lifecycles they cannot breed when put back together because they have evolved differently
