    "We may joke about cavemen, but as individuals, they were superior to us" *shows a nerdy kid saying "Astrophysics taught me about black holes" with a caveman replying "Killed any bears lately"*
    Yep. They sure are. That is until that thing we learned about black holes allows us to contain a couple dozen and punch that arrogant bastard with the force of a trillion suns.
    Damn Cavemen with their god complexes. Who do they think they are? Walkin around calling themselves superior. If there's even the SLIGHTEST difference between us and Cavemen I'm calling racism.

    Man, for religious people and scientific people, just take it that the earliest era when the bible was written by Moses, a lot of things maybe didn't have a proper name yet, like Day 1-Day 7, maybe they meant eras, and by Adam and Eve, maybe it's actually a bunch of ancestors of us, and yeah, fossils exist, so dinosaurs exist before Adam and Eve were, "Adam and Eve are the first humans on Earth", maybe they meant as the first "perfect" and "modern" humans that are quite civilized compared to others

    if you start counting assumptions that were made in this theory, it will be in hundreds, requires too much faith to believe, the beginning, language, dead and new sapiens, etc. It is much easier to accept that there is a loving Creator who created us with an intelligence, giving us intelligence to continue and grow in knowledge. Look at yourself and ask, how you did you become you by a random chance? 0 after trillion years still be 0. Do you have any other examples of intellectual development occurring on random basis occured since you were born. Why did it happen in the past, but now it requires and intellect to create something intellectual.

    • eeeaten
      eeeaten 16 days ago

      +V M Kashuk
      evolution isn't "sold", it's just the science of our origins. practically all scientists accept it as fact, so why not you? there are (literally) mountains of evidence for evolution: we can trace it through fossils, genetics, comparative anatomy, stratigraphy and radiometric dating. there's no need to cling to archaic superstitions - science shows us how we came about. your claims of a magical god sound like "ooga booga juju under sea make baby!" rather than make a fool of yourself in youtube comments, why not get yourself educated? it's important to know where you came from.

    • EFYN
      EFYN 16 days ago

      Again you clearly don't understand evolution. Evolution is a theory, the closest thing we have to a fact. It's called a theory because it has an overwhelming amount of evidence that supports it, it can make predictions about future evidence and it has been peer reviewed by thousands of scientists. People think it's on shaky ground because of people like you who do no understand evolution and it's evidence. If God made us in his own image god is very flawed. The human body and mind have many flaws, some trivial some can kill you. How is it less responsible to say we came from an -ape- common ancestor?

    • Marcus Vitali Kashuk
      Marcus Vitali Kashuk 16 days ago

      I think that's how evolution is sold that it is an intellectual theory, and believe in God is not. Just not enough evidence for evolution theory, requiring to have more faith in it than in God. In the light of all scientific discoveries for the last 10 years, the theory of evolution is on very shaky ground. We hold to it just because it is easier, with less responsibility to believe that you came from ape, rather that there is God who made you in his image. Why would you believe in God if you are a God, right?

    • EFYN
      EFYN 16 days ago

      Your replies clearly show a lack of understanding. The change is a result of mutations. The changes are very subtle and can positively, negatively or neutrally affect and individual which can determine their success at passing on their genes. You acknowledge variations yet fail to see the big picture. image an animal is a puddle and a variation is a droplet. 1, 2, 10 droplets and it's still a puddle. But give it long enough and enough droplets (variations) the puddle will soon be a pond... a completely different thing to a puddle. The puddle (animal) has evolved into a pond (animal)

    The next iteration of humans will be h. sapiens machinatum. Engineered humans. We will discard evolution and begin intelligently designing ourselves and our descendants. CRISPR-CAS9 FTW.

      i agree. although if our brains are augmented with a "cloud" facility perhaps we could survive the death of our biological brain? of course we'd need to recreate brain technology but we're talking hundreds of years away.
      i also like to imagine this scenario (short version):
      brain augmentation increases, causing an acceleration in technological development. human brains become digitised and transcend the need for a physical form. this creates a dilemma - how to remain human? to recreate the human experiences we give ourselves vr experiences involving birth, living a life, and death. the key is that we aren't even aware that the simulation isn't real. and then who's to say this didn't all happen a thousand years ago and you're now in a simulation designed by your ancestors?

      The two big obstacles to a post-biological form are energy efficiency and the brain. Life is actually highly energy efficient, so any replacement solution would need to at least equal that. And we still have a hell of a lot to learn about how the brain works. Specifically, until we understand what consciousness is, how it works, and how the sense of self comes to exist, it would be very foolish to try to make changes to a person's brain.
      I think the big steps that we'll see in the next 50 years will be gene editing and augmentation, brain-machine interfacing, and life extension. We will be able to redesign/sculpt our bodies, eliminate health issues (hopefully without causing new ones), and add new capabilities (how about being able to see into the infrared?). With brain-machine interfacing, we'll have the ultimate AR and VR experience, and be able to implement things like actual functioning telepathy. And we should be able to eliminate the degradation of the body due to aging, so that lifespans will increase dramatically (serious disease and accidents would still kill us, of course).

      maybe in a couple of hundred years we won't need a biological form at all?

    We all should have respect for all religious books because it kept us together and helped us to live a good life and even now for the people who have hard time understanding logic and science.
    Religious books are outdated in our present life. It was effective back then when we had less information and knowledge about universe and everything.
    Back then Religious book (just like a constitution of a country) prevented people going mad, coz there were no tools or technology available even to understand simple things like diseases and medicines. So religious books were very good way for survival and it kept us alive, together and safe but now its outdated.
    It is outdated because in present day just barely breathing and surviving is not enough, life has more meaning than just living and reproducing like a bacteria.
    Conclusion: I don't believe in GOD frankly but I have respect for all religions and its teachings for the above points mentioned

      why respect religions that endorse oppression and faulty ways of understanding the world? if i believed you should remove your children's eyelids at birth and that people who walk backwards should be shunned from society, would you respect that? you shouldn't.

      You don't really believe that an invisible deity magically created two humans, who then had children who had so much incest that we now have 7 billion people, without the generations after Adam and Eve dying because of genetic diseases due to said incest?

    The book "Sapiens" by Yuval Noah Harari focuses on these points - I don't know how accurate it is, but I'm enjoying reading it up to now.

    Despite everything RACIST jerks might tell you, we're all FUNDAMENTALLY the SAME.
    That's pretty much the reason I've never been half as "patriotic" as was expected outta me.
    I don't believe RELIGIONS exist. I don't believe RACES exist. I don't believe NATIONS exist.
    It's all made up shitty garbage!!

    2.8 million years ago the Genus homo(humans) arrived...from where? from the DNA of monkeys...ummm how thoughtful....
    "When we Homo sapiens sapiens came into existence,there were at least 6 other human species around".... Ummm, interesting
    "The last of the other species disappeared around 10 thousand years ago, we dont know why or what caused them to die out"
    you don't know because they never existed to begin with...
    God created Adam and eve and thwy were the first Humans(Homo sapiens)
    Humans didn't evolve...we were created...so is everything around us
    we didn't just poff into existence by chance...there was a Creator and that creator is God

      uh, where in the bible does it condemn slavery? the ot even provides advice on how to beat your slaves. graven images and taking the lords name in vain make the top ten list of rules, but not slavery or rape?
      treating everyone equal? the bible is rampant with misogyny.
      "so you think...Women claiming superiority over men is normal" - what? who says that? the claim is that everyone is _equal_ regardless of gender - do you not accept that women and men are different but equal?
      "Ancient civilizations had better knowledge,better understanding of the principles that guides the universe" - ridiculous. they couldn't fly, communicate instantly across great distances, eradicate disease, transplant organs, explore the world, or work out what the sun is made of.
      no gods are real - why would you favour one over another? the bible is a real book written by people. science finally uncovers the facts of our origins and you're clinging to medieval superstitions of gods and monsters and your brain is packed wall-to-wall with conspiracy theories - way to drag the chain of humanity!

      Haha... "Dubious morality"
      The bible believe and support all these claims of "Human rights... Treating everyone equal ...not owning slaves"
      These are the things the Bible had supproted even before science.
      The problem is that you people think we have become one advanced civilization...
      No we haven't thing's are rather going down hill or bad very fast...
      Ancient civilizations had better knowledge,better understanding of the principles that guides the universe(Egyptians...Aztec... Yorubas and all)
      We are operating a messed up Society...look at the marriages of these days.... divorce everywhere(the Africans who aren't operating in this advance civilization have better marriages,less depression stats and so on)
      You think being a Trans is normal...or being a Gay is normal or Women claiming superiority over men is normal(even though when war comes its the women and children are spared... when a ship is sinking or when a building is burning the women and the children are rescued first"
      I know.. You know deep down that religion is real... the bible is real
      why are there free masons...The Illuminati and so on...
      controlling the media and the Music Industry...
      Satan will always try to brain wash us into believing the bullshit the media says...
      You think man walked on the moon.. or do you believe Ebola came from a bat or monkey...or Hiv came from the deep forest of Congo..😂
      There's this movement for a One World Government or order
      These people use science to lie to us.. because we believe in what science says... "since science is Fact" we say
      so when they say science discovered this... we believe.

      what you're claiming is the religious nonsense of a specific middle eastern religion. science shows it to be nonsense. morality evolved with our physical forms, and the dubious morality of your religion is based on an arbitrary line in the 2000 year old sand. scientific understanding of our biology and culture is what caused the rise of civil rights (you know, not owning slaves, treating people as equals regardless of race or gender). your concept of sin is based on a childish understanding of what is good and bad. get a grip.
