Well, technically, that's sort of an assumption, but that point aside, in rare cases people are born with tails. To assume that is a evolutionary throwback is, ultimately, just an assumption. It could be that tails on humans were once as common as horns on cattle, but then something in the past led to it being culled, such as tribal wars or fashion. Pronouncing an assumption as a debate ender is kind of...lacking.
*edit* This one has been mentioned, but needs repeated. Nipples on a man. Enough said.
A recent scientific study undertaken by the University of Bonn in Germany suggests that the universe could be one giant computer simulation.

Perhaps we were genetically engineered or something to that effect by another sentient race who knows however to think of some supernatural being just speaking us into existence is just a fairytale.
Our planet is mostly covered by water yet drinking saltwater would cause our death for that matter wouldn’t it make sense for us to have been created to where we could inhabit the majority of our planet instead of the small percent that we do. Just think if we were able to safely ingest saltwater and our bodies could filter it. Think of how many people on this planet die from dehydration even in this day and age each year.
There is just no way that the Abrahamic religion is even close to being true. Keeping that in mind there is no reason to fret over the idea of god or gods because regardless of how we got here we need to stop looking to the heavens to solve our problems or waiting for some magical day that some figure reappears to save us. It isn’t going to happen and the sooner the world comes to terms with that the sooner we can get to work solving our own problems. It is still a worthy question to ponder but not as important as day to day living.

I have been called a child of evolution myself by several dentists. I have NO WISDOM TEETH. That is correct. I am almost 50 yrs old and can't tell you how many dentists have tried to proof that fact incorrect. The only dental nightmares I've had to endure are the countless hours of having to sit through those awful x-ray sessions because this dentist thinks he will be the first to find them hidden somewhere in my mouth. The egos of some dentists, I'll tell you! Never had, never will have Wisdom Teeth. Lucky me!
If anyone cares, I am also negative blood type, left handed. and have twinkly eyes. I believe that only 3% of the population are born without wisdom teeth and 17% born with negative blood. Being such a rare specimen should have some rewards one would think.
In my quest for knowledge of all sorts I ran across one internet post claiming that persons born without wisdom teeth are from the angelic realms. I am no angel or at least I don’t think I am. Anyone knows anything about this or have any useful info I’d be glad to hear all about it. Any and all comments welcome.
