I looked up the "difference between adaptation and evolution" just like that on my search. Many of the sites said the same thing just used more words to do so. Even wiki had a "difference between.." link and like wiki can be, it too, was kind of "wiki" because they questioned the source of their answer. With that being said, I was saying in my opinion, we're not evolving, we're just adapting as a society to the ever growing violence in our nation. We're not turning into pigs, horses, dogs or cats, we're adapting as I said out of the "fight or flight syndrome". Animals don't have the mental capability to go out and buy guns and knives as a means of survival, they do it as they always have, usually in packs and they fight to the death, the weakest i.e. old and young are usually the first to go and this has been the way it's been done since the creation of animals.<quoted text>Not sure where you got your information on evolution, but it is wrong, wrong, wrong.
Wiki,Evolution is the change in the inherited characteristics of biological populations over successive generations.
It does not take species change to be called evolution. Now when a species does change enough, science categorizes the animal to a new species for identity purposes.
Pigs never turned into horses.
Now humans do not need to change traits as much as some other species. Why? Because our large brains have enabled us to make artificial adaptations, like clothes and heaters for example. We do not need fangs, because we can use spears and now guns.
I noticed where Pro in a post spoke of the side effects of drugs today and he's totally spot on. With my brother's permission, we've taken him off many of his drugs for strokes. The drugs were causing as many, if not more complications than the strokes. No pun intended, but nowadays, you pick your poison between sickness and the cure. If the young man that killed these people was being treated with medication, who's to say with his already fractured mental health, then the side effects of drugs he may have been taking for, coupled with and this is the worse thing for me, the fact his mother took him for fun to shoot guns, he was a walking time bomb. He was a disaster waiting for a place to happen and unfortunately it was at an elementary school. Got off subject somewhere, but dog wants to walk.
We do need and still have "fangs" per sey. Last weekend my husband crack his back tooth on some peanut brittle and when we called the dentist she wanted to be sure of which tooth, so she said count from you "canine" tooth back and tell me which one. Still need the canine teeth to tear meat with.
I'll be back in a few, let me walk this dog.
