I understand the driving force behind the theory of evolution is that animals develop certain attributes or traits (physical or mental) to help them better adapt to their environment. What about slanted eyes? What about big noses? What about the desire for drugs or an escape? What about the advent of birthcontrol? Hate? Greed? To me, it seems that our adaptations are random rather than having the purpose to create a race of super humans. Thoughts? Comments? Questions?....dont ask me i developed a huge penis instead of a decent sized brain. A lady's dream.

ummm yeah..... anyways.. no one ever said that it was perfect... but most things that have evolved are due to the surrounding enviorments... like the big noses where probably to help sort out the dust or the narrow eyes to block the sun or just stuff like that.. i dont know but that would be my guess..

Put down the weed and pick up a book.
