Yep Andyaa , you are definitely an engineering type, unable to see the trees through the forest. If you cannot get from 1 to 2 to 3, you get totally lost. Making so much of so little. You going to write a book about the meaning of divergence?

The religious do mot disagree with evolution..in their eyes the universe was created in the singularity...all of the matter and energy that ever will exist in this universe was created at that time. Did man simply evolve though through billions of years of evolution, or was he given a boost in his design by a "creator"? Isn't that the real issue?

So yeah andyaa, you think evo took place because it only makes sense to you.
That means nothing without proof.


Oh, and organization came about with no guidance whatsoever.

A person would have to be really gullible to believe that with out proof.

There's no way for humans to evolve at this point without combining technology and genetic manipulation into our evolution. Natural selection has ceased for our species, so we either plateau or we enhance ourselves. I don't think that truly makes us different from other species though because at the core we're still cousins to chimps with less body hair.

The intelligent non-human lifeforms in this part of the galaxy will once have been human.

There is human life on earth so that non-human life can eventually not be on earth.

Oh yes. And I'm composing a work of fiction in which the aliens are as thick as two short planks, overemotional and hardly able to use a TV remote control. In other words, aren't too many of us presuming that they are superior? Now it's up to them to appear here and prove me wrong. But they won't, will they? Another dark matter!

Why not human life, and one assumes the author means, as in what humanity has become today, and not the evolutionary processes the human animal took in order to survive on a hostile world and become top predator.

For a start there nearly was no human life on this earth, as genome quest demonstrated. We all appear to have evolved from a very small gene pool, so one could say we are the only incestuous species to have ever evolved naturally.

As for the religious brigade and their detractors and worshipers. Religion is relatively new cultural practice, and appears from the evidence to be nurtured from the inception of sedentary life, and our abandonment of a few million years of hunting/ scavenging, and gathering. Let us not forget this almost helpless human creature was once easy prey for hungry carnivores.

As for why the question was asked. It might be more a contemporary question, a modern take on the biggest polluter, the cruellest animal to evolve. We are the mass exterminator of species, and the biggest thereat to most life on earth, since the meteor stirred things up a bit, 65 million years ago.

So we should have become extinct around 80,000ish years ago and now appear to have chosen this destiny through default, possibly due to a mass perverted form of narcissism.

Wisdom?animals????Curious???

We do deign to apply intelligence to animals, and "domestication" lol research has provided much understanding of human capabilities, possibilities, control/treatment mechanisms for physical, biological, mental deviance, sustinence(food-fertilization-clothing-protection/guarding homes flocks etc.)-entertainment, assistance and therapy, extermination of pests, law enforcement. In addition, studying different species of non-human animals provided standard ideology of accepted norms, even those normal deviations arriving from certain situations.. However, i really do not agree that certain hunting and fishing has any qualities of domestication, we do prey upon certain non-human animals.
additionally, many animals of the human species do prey upon other human animals-often deemed to be lessor predators by the human predator. Financially, physically legally- etc...

Yes, we are amongst the animal kingdom... No special attributes contained albeit, we did develop in a different trajectory. Not intended as irony or sarcasm...

That's debatable. We domesticated animals rather than hunt them, prior to this were mostly opportunist hunters and scavengers.


dogs have become very successful whereas the Wolf is near extinction.

no more need be said about humans ability to domesticate or what they consider domestication to be...or its effective contribution to animal kingdom- or predator vs domesticator... nothing moot point...

^ claim of wolf PROBABLY NOT ANCESTOR OF DOG
a bit of research possibly needed to maintain consistency of many of your posits of evolutionary understandings...The Truth About Dogs - 99.07 (Part Two) - The Atlantic

[...]The evolutionary chronometer is a measure of ancient origins -- it cannot pick up divergence into separate breeding lines that has occurred in the past few hundred years.

Oh boy,

Researchers,

If a person believed all reserchers....,...........................

That's where thinking for yourself comes in, but we hardly even know what that means.
We are taught to accept everything from the, ahem, 'professionals', whose opinion changes willy nilly, with research, of course!

Oh, and don't forget about wishful thinking, preconceived notions and ideas, industry admired conclusions, yada yada, yada.......

And , tomorrow, another conclusion.

Yeah, another non existent common decedent..............

Ah, the stories we have to endure.......

i guess we can determine the purpose of human life on earth's is to and only to find divergent ideas then debate.. so we are accomplishing our purpose.. woo hoo..
yet i imagine those, who are dying of starvation, disease, political genocide and terror, or lack of medical care, find little comfort in our elitist form of entertainment. Like academic debates and discourse...self discovery provided, yet if not applied to ones existence and enhancement of civilization- education was just that an elitist endeavor. Yes humans exist- in a current timeframe- the why ?? a discourse and debate centered on aiding the human race and preservation of all life and improving quality of life, what good does knowing ultimate origins and ultimate ends provide- the means are valuable, and the means, are in nature, inclusive rather than exclusionary...Death is a natural function to life- anything in that existence or contributions of existence are personal drives and desires- we are asking humans{duh} for a reason of humans?? the question defies the principles of rationality, unbiased observation, and quite frankly logic!! are there an existence of an us and them for all humans.. Us humans to not humans Them???? who are these humans, that do not belong to the "us" of human race??? I had not realized AI was so advanced, maybe need to ask AI reason for human existence...
