i think reality is a trap for the mind. if your strong enough to escape it then reality becomes a game. i've also come to understand that truth is almost always temporary. the sun relvolves around the earth, the earth is flat, my penis is huge....if everyone believes these thing does it make them true.

there is a tree falling in the woods and no one is around. when it hits the ground does it make a sound?

my answer. no, i personally never saw the tree or even knew about the forest. so, to me the forest never existed.

where i walk, i walk alone. when i fight, i fight alone. i am no one and i am nothing. yet all is that i am.

There is a large body of evidence to suggest man decended from apes, but I never claimed that it had been proven. I claimed that evolution has been proven in a labratory setting (using organisms that have a short life cycle) We did not observe the evolution of humans... it happened before there was scientific method or even recorded history, for that matter.

well i made that statement before i comprehended the rest of what you said. But i think a tree is a good representation for ancestry and evolution.

The genetic similliarities between a chimp and a human is very great... the genetic similliarity is like 98% i believe... but that is still nothing close or something to even jump over.

To say we descended from a chimp would be wrong, because we are much more evolved... If i may not speak to soon... You couldnt really have the chimp where it is now... and have humans where they are now... and still have humans come from chimps...

but think of it as a branch in the ancestry of our two diverse species.

Evolution or should i say adaptation? has been proven in a lab setting. Its called fruit flies.

What?
