My question asked about why a giraffe could have a long neck or how humans can evolve from apes. It is not like i went against it and said that the earth was created 6000 years ago. I was simply wondering a few things. If you call ridiculous, I surely don’t want to know what you think of some of the religious talks on ATS

I think that the nipple question is a very good one.
I think men have smaller nipples because we used to breast feed as well, why else? I remember reading about men that start producing some type of milk when their wives are pregnant. I believe that is proof of evolution.
The giraffes I think that they were having trouble reaching the trees and were stretching their necks to get to the fruits and this was recorded in the genes and the next generation of them had longer necks because of this. Just like some birds do the rain dance without ever seeing another bird do it and they know exactly how to do it, it is in their genes and it gets passed along and some times it gets modified to help them.
I think this makes sense and that it is not far away from what scientists might find. It just took me a couple of minutes to come up with this answer and I don't have any proof of this but you can find videos of domestic animals doing what other animals do in the wild. How else can they know what to do?

We didn't evolve from apes, anymore than we evolved from the Neanderthals or Eructus. They are a different branch of the same evolutionary tree. Current theory is that we have a common ancestor dating back around 6 million years ago.

why haven't we evolved to live forever or longer or heal faster when clearly it's a survival issue??
