If we all came from Monkeys, then???

By jdclyde ·
For the sake of this discussion, we will ASSUME that evolution is more than the "Theory of".

If we are to accept that Man came from Apes (barring the question of why are there still apes then) why are there so many "races" that are so different from one another?

I understand the idea of life addapting to their environment, but how long does that take, and can it explain the vast differences between the differnt races?

Why would Japanese be so much smaller, while black and white races average so much taller? Different diet maybe?

I understand the eskimo body to concerve heat, but most others I just don't follow.

And how does this relate to certain races having less of a resistance to certain disease or lower/higher tolerance to booze?

And with more people moving to different climates, how long does it take to re-adapt to a new climate, even if breeding among other races did not happen?

And of course if we are all the human race, how can there be so many differenses in our DNA, from race to race?

If we all started from the same mold, how can we have become so different?

No, I don't think so

Humans didn't evolve from the apes, they are just a similar branch of the complex construction of DNA that makes up all things. We are what we are from the beginning, maybe adding a few mutations along the way, but are not evolved from the apes. Don't mean to rattle anyones cage but that's the path that has been taken. We were human to start and will be to the end. We have just learned to use what we have better than any other bi-pedal species. The creatures in the sea are just as complex and have learned how to master their envirionment just like we have.

I've done my bit to enhance the booze resistance of our descendants.

My son can drink me under the table.

can get boozed out of his mind and reach an alcohol content of 0.70 in his blood, while still seated. Now go learn some manner and and teach your son the same. Stop hiding under the table to drink - bloody closet drinkers.

NB legal limit around here is 0.06 and anything above 0.5 is supposed to be potentially lethal.

Of course he was still standing, if it's an Aussie

by Deadly Ernest In reply to .

The only reason he would be standing on the street, would be that the bar he was in had shut and he's looking for another - normally he'd be sitting in a bar or pub drinking.
