I know this is a weird thought, but what do you think will be the next evolution for humans? Like, a dna change in all of us. What do you think will happen next and when do you think it will happen???
The appendix is not a vestigal organ, contrary to ignorant and common belief. It has a similar function to the tonsuls, except for the intestines. It at one point protected you from getting too awful sick from eating raw meat, but since we've been cooking for thousands of years...
I don't believe in extreme evolution like from microscopic organisms to fish, to amphabians, ect. I only beleive in environmental evolution.
Frankly, I think that physicaly, man is devolving. A lot more people are getting the bad end of the gene pool in respect of physical birth defects, mental illnesses, learning handicaps, ect. While the Earth's population is growing, genetic diversity is shrinking.
Humans have already evolved considerably in the last 10,000 years alone. Digestive system, skeletal structure, brain and nervous system, immune system...all have gone through significant changes. I think they will continue in the next few centuries, especially as humans become increasingly reliant on technology.
Jesus H. Christ! I think the appendix will all of a sudden be useful to humans again because they think there used to be a need for it, but they don't know what it was so who knos? An I dont know when it'll happen, but it's comin' O.o
Humans might evolve or be mutated.That might take another 100 centuries!
I realy dont know? but that was a good question :)
