• Is there an alternative scientific theory/hypothesis to evolutionary theory, for how the many species of plants and animals came to exist?

    I mean that is NOT based on religious/theistic accounts, but an actual scientific hypothesis/theory which has the potential to be falsifiable..

  • Why do humans kill each other?

    Best answer: I feel like it's an evolutionary thing. Waaay back in the day, humans had to constantly fight and kill predators to survive as well as hunt and kill prey so they could eat. As time went on and we evolved and progressed to the point we're at now, the need to fight and hunt for survival is gone. But I think... show more
    Best answer: I feel like it's an evolutionary thing. Waaay back in the day, humans had to constantly fight and kill predators to survive as well as hunt and kill prey so they could eat. As time went on and we evolved and progressed to the point we're at now, the need to fight and hunt for survival is gone. But I think that primal urge/instinct is still ingrained in us, and might be the reason we do things like boxing and UFC, fist fights, or things like lots of exercise or playing videogames, anything to get that rush of adrenaline or release of anger and stress.

    I think people that kill can't find their outlet, and so that urge/instinct hits a tipping point to where they explode and the end result is murder.

    If you're looking for more surface reasons:
    Anger
    Hate
    Money (hired or life insurance)
    To get out of marriage
    To hide an affair
    Gang initiation
    Drunk (usually with anger)
    High (altered state of mind)
    A lack of care/concern for others lives
    Ego
    Power
    Government (Army)
    Control
    Etc, etc.

  • Evolutionarily, why do we (most humans) find lizards scary (or, gross), when they can't really hurt us?

    Like, isn't that useless, to be scared or find lizards disgusting, if they can't really hurt us? Plus, they eat other insects that could hurt us..so they actually benefit us Don't say "I'm not scared of them"/"I don't find them gross". You *do* know that most others do...so... show more

  • Where do you think we go when we die?

    How I see it is why would we be dead forever? It’s hard to explain how I think. So think about this: why would we be DEAD FOREVER? I believe life is a cycle although the scientific part of being deceased says you loose your memory, etc I believe that. I believe that when we die we’re born again into another HUMAN... show more

  • Is there any way to eat and drink the exact amount that you need and never have to used the bathroom ?

    Best answer: No. The human body converts food into fuel by (over-simply stated) burning (oxidizing) that food. The matter - the elements that make up the food - do not disappear when digested. The nutritious elements are utilized by the body but eventually excreted (typically in different form). The non-nutritious elements are... show more
    Best answer: No.
    The human body converts food into fuel by (over-simply stated) burning (oxidizing) that food.
    The matter - the elements that make up the food - do not disappear when digested. The nutritious elements are utilized by the body but eventually excreted (typically in different form). The non-nutritious elements are simple excreted.

    If this were not so, if what you imagine were so, then you would gain weight at the same amount that you ate food.
    For example: if an adult ate one pound of food per day (which is not a tremendous amount), then that adult would gain one pound in weight per day. After a year an adult would gain 365 pounds.

    So: because of the way our bodies work, both food and drink must be digested AND the byproducts excreted.

  • So as a black person I should be under the sun...?

    So as a black person, I should be under the sun because my ancestors survived in Africa exposed to high UV sun exposure and this is my habitat. So whats the consequences of not living in my habitat? I don't live in a hot country.

  • How could it be that my DNA test came back as '18 percent Chinese' when my entire family are not from, nor know of anyone being from China?

    Literally, no one in our known family history is from China. 18 percent is a BIG number. So if my ancestors have Chinese heritage, that's going to have to be a HUGE number of people for my test to come back that high...

  • Are humans the most numerous mammals on the planet?

    Best answer: Probably. It's unfair to say "mice" or "rats" which aren't single species. Sure, there are more mice than humans, but that's combining a couple of dozen species of mice, which is unfair. Similarly, we (probably) outnumber any individual rat species.
