The answer is simple. Bug eyes died and slanted eyed lived to pass on the mutation to the next generation. Since all animals on the planet are bug eyed, it is logical that there is no environment capable of kill all bug eyes selecting only slanted eyed. Unless it was predatorial. Thats right, slanted eyes killed off the bug eyes from 1. The missing link of bug eyes and slanted eyes is the angel race of the bible.

Would you care to provide a link to some honest to goodness evidence to back that up?

evidence on a link???????

do you have problems with logical reasoning or you have no idea what evolution is?

survival of the fittest, natural selection...

those means that genes that arent good dont survive.

slanted eyes is a mutation, mutation is corrected by race mixing , simpling killing it, since bug eyed genes never passed on. It is therefore to reason it died. very simple excersice of brain yes?

I would say I'm reasonably familiar with the bible, but I can't for the life of me recall the bit about the bug-eyed people being killed off by the slanted eyed angels.

while evolution has no doubt played a part in the way we all look, I would think it has more to do with the harsh sun and dry dusty climate of Asia.

tell me the process of how climate and diet would kill bug eyes and not slanted eyes. Angel is just bible name for a creature, where in the bible does it say evolution exists?

I wouldn't want to be called a WOP because of my Italian heritage.


The term "Eskimo", is a word used to describe those who live in the high Arctic regions of Canada, Alaska and Greenland.

Certain groups of people living in these areas are still classed as Eskimo, for example, Kalaalit (Greenland), Inapiat (Northern Alaska), Yupik (Southwestern Alaska), AND INUIT (Northern Canada).

Whilst it is understandable that these groups preffer to be recognised by their proper name e.g Inuit, it does not mean that they are not Eskimo. It might even be worse to classify all Eskimo as Inuit, as this is describing different groups as one specific group from a completely different region.

To explain it with an analogy,
All squares are rectangles
(4 sides & the opp sides are of equal legnth)
BUT
not all rectangles are squares
(2 opp sides might be a different legnth to the 2 other sides).

I am a college student, with a Biology Major and a Japanese Minor. I stumbled upon this question, and though maybe I could clear this up for you.

Many oriental people oriniated from Siberian North. A very cold and snowy region. The people who lived there are called Mongolians. The Mongolians had evolved over time due to the fact that snow can be blinding to the eye, and the slanted eye was supposed to help repress snow glare. Soon the Mongolians traveled over the eastern side of the world (From china to Japan, though Japan was a late country.). As a result, many oriental people were born with slanted eyes. My guess would be because this is a dominant trait over round eyes, though I am not entirely sure on that part (I'm sure it can be looked up). However, over time, oriental people started to lose this trait, and because of the statement of Darwin's 5 Postulates (Very interesting topic), people started to lose this trait due to the fact they no longer live in a snowy region.

Hope that clears things up! Sorry my spelling might be a bit off, I'm terrible at english =P.

It's because of the fried won ton dog. It's actually a chemical reaction from the dog that has altered their genetics just enough to cause their offspring to inherit the feature. This has been proved and traced back to the Emperor of the 3rd Dynasty. He was inventor of fried wont ton dog and as a result, BAM, slanted eyes.

Mauwie, whether your spelling is off because you have slant eyes or bug eyes or even god forbid ‘betty-davis eyes,’ you’re the first person I’ve seen to accurately answer the original inquiry. To be honest, this entire blog conversation has gone completely off track, starting with LadyV who states Asians don’t have slanted eyes.

But she’s wrong.

It’s the term used in North American English to describe the type of eyes Asians have; nothing more and nothing less. It’s like saying a hill does have a slant, rather it has it’s own incline or a decline…

HAH! when I look at a hill, I say it slants.

The reason I stumbled across this site is because I have several Asian friends who tell me you can tell if someone is Japanese because of an upward slant, while Chinese have the downward slant, and other races have things in-between… or maybe…I may have mixed-up what they have said because to me it really doesn’t matter how the face is structured, but who the person is… BUT, being blonde haired, blue-eyed (I think they’re bug eyes, but not sure) and very fair skinned…most people think I’m from an Arian race (and many times the attitude that I’m akin to Hitler’s poster child). Heck, I don’t really care, this is who I am…so,

Truthfully, I’m pretty much a mut from just about every one of the races you could think of, but as it seems, you really can’t tell what race someone really is from their physical features. Therefore, I guess I will end my quest on what type of slant determines if you’re Korean, Mongolian, Crab-person, extinct bug eyed, pissed-off slanty-eyed, or a politically-correct verbiage police monitor…

I was just searching wikipedia when i came across this footnote. being half asian, i was highly offended. first off, asians do not have "slanted" eyes. our lower eyelids are more horizontal and our upper eyelids lack the droopy and sometimes ugly occidental, or "double" fold. also, some of us have an epicanthic fold at the inner corners of our eyes, while some do not. some asians even have a partial or complete occidental fold on their upper eyelids. i, being half asian, half japanese to be precise, have a partial occidental fold and a complete epicanthic fold on my eyes. on a final note, us asians, with our "slanted" eyes, are exotic and beautiful whereas caucasians, african americans, and hispanics with their "round" eyes have a plain, common, and even homely look. domo arigato!

Keep in mind that Darwin's five postulates do not necessarily mean that a trait MUST be (or must have been) evolutionarily advantageous. It may also simply be a mutation that isn't a disadvantage, and has never (or at least not yet) been selected AGAINST.

It could very well be that epicanthic folds really have no reason. (Except as a thing of beauty!
)

most of my 'asian' friends call themseves 'asian' they are from thailand or taiwan and korea. oriental is a weird word to use i think as it is more logical for the middle east but than again one would say arab or arabian right? i think it is worst that in france for example they tend to call everybody chinese, no matter where in asia they are from...
thai people call everybody from europe or the u.s. 'farang' which means westerner somehow they also charge u more on everything, who's screaming politically incorrect in their case?

er you are wrong there doofus, the black skin means sunlight passes right through the body, where the white skin reflects it, which leads to an amount of the energy being passed into the body
8of course both colour skins have this ability, it is purely relatively less so in balck skin than in white.)

No that does not make any sense. His father's eyes don't slant because they are not supposed to. Asians so not have slanted eyes, they have a lowered bridge of their nose and a mongolian (epicanthic) fold on their upper eye lid which gives the appearence of a slant. Asians' eyes are no more santed than any other group of people.
