>> No.9432726

Do you know the definition of adaptation and speciation? Cause I am pretty sure you don't.
Speciation is the evolutionary process by which populations evolve to become distinct species.
Adaptation is a change or the process of change by which an organism or species becomes better suited to its environment.

Speciation is the result of accumulated adaptations. Species is a very mutable concept but in the biological species concept a specie diverges into two separate species when they can no longer interbreed due to behavioral or genetic isolation.

Really though you are just a troll, but a lot of really smart people can make stupid decisions based on silly information trolls like you disseminate.

Selective breeding isn't evolution you retarded bastard. You can selectively breed a nigger and a white person and get some mulatto idiot - but the baby didn't fucking evolve from anything. You can't selectively breed a dog and a cat. You cant selectively breed an elephant and an ostrich. You can't selectively breed a chimp with a gorilla, or a human with either. You can't selectively breed a pig with a lion, a parrot with a pigeon, a snake with an eel, a shark with a marlin, a blue whale with a sperm whale, or a watermelon with a squash.

Are you honestly so fucking dumb you think mixing is related to evolution? If I pour red sugar powder into a glass of water and stir it, my fucking water didn't evolve into koolaid. If I combine white paint with blue paint and a little bit of green paint, my paint palette didn't fucking evolve into turquoise. If a red spotlight overlaps a blue spotlight, fucking magenta light isn't EVOLVING into existence.

>humans start recording shit (5000 years ago)

A billion years = 1000000000
5 thousand years = 5000

5000 / 1000000000 * 100 = 0.0005%

.0005% of evolutionary history. So why is it surprising that we would see so little during our limited period of time to observe? On top of that, humans are generally regarded as the sixth extinction event. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holocene_extinction

So it is really no surprise at all...

>> No.9432747

Yes we have, that list included several instances of speciation.

More so evolution =/= speciation. Evolution is change in a population over time due to selective forces. Even humans have evolved significantly with increases in height, penis size, and resistance to disease.

The mechanism exploited by humans for selective breeding is evolution. It's like saying oxidation doesn't exist because humans just use combustion fuel in a gas tank for energy. Also your metaphors are weak, each of them dealing with single attribute items with no ability to change naturally.

Nah, you're just fuckin stupid. You can selectively breed a purebred husky with a purebred pomeranian despite both lineages being removed from each other by 300 years and having no similar traits beyond being fluffy dogs, or a purebred labrador with a purebred poodle despite 500 years of seperation and significantpy different traits between these examplea of dogs compared to darwins misinterpretation of finches.

The thing about dog breeds is that these aren't evidence of evolution. They're evidence of mixing. You can only mix dogs with other dogs, so you have to have dogs in the first place. Same goes for humans. Humans can't breed with anything other than other humans, not even apes or chimps that otherwise appear extremely similar to humans. Why? Because humans and apes are unrelated. Humans and apes have always existed, unrelated, as different creatures created by God. One didn't evolve into the other, nor was selectively bred from the other. Humans could only ever breed with other humans, so there always had to be humans in the first place, and same goes for every other walk of life and species. Most if not all dog breeds are domesticated mixes. Many have different traits, attitudes, aptitudes, purposes, but they can still crossbreed because they are the same walk of life, just like a large skull, flat faced white person can breed with the smaller skulled, jutting jawed, monkey-like black-skinned subhumans, where whites have been selectively bred for their features and blacks selectively bred for their obedience. None of this says one creature can, over time, transform into an entirely different creature. There is no way humans will ever spontaneously or over-time develop wings for flying as Angels, or fish tails like Mermaids through breeding. No way for a fish to develop arms and legs. No way for a lizard to develop feathers. No way for any of these creatures to crossbreed and introduce the beneficial mutation to each other's species.
Fish beget fish beget fish beget fish, ad infinitum. Dogs beget dogs, apes beget apes, humans beget humans, and god begat them all different.

If evolution were real there shoud have been a speciation or mutation difference for coastal cultures by now that lead them to develop webbed fingers and toes to be more apt at swimming, yet no such trait exists specifically unique to ancient or modern coastal people. The structure of human form has in fact never changed, and anything resembling a chamge through mutation of extra limbs or conjoined digits has never been beneficial, resulting in childhood death before passing on the gene, infertility from passing on the gene, or submissive trait where fertility doesn't pass on the gene to be represented.

All things that should point towards evolution simply do not.

>> No.9433075

>yet no such trait exists

The point is, X makes more X, Y makes more Y, Z makes more Z.
X[math]_{ab}[/math] can mix with X[math]_{c}[/math] to result X[math]_{abc}[/math], but it will always first and foremost be X. X doesn't mix with Y, Y doesn't mix with Z, and Z doesn't mix with X. If Z existed with features that defined Z[math]_{qr}[/math] where [math]_{q} || _{r}[/math] would be beneficial features for X, there is no conceivable "evolutionary" method for X to acquire [math]_{qr}[/math]. X cannot mix with Z, so the [math]_{qr}[/math] mutation cannot be introduced to X. X will instead only ever be X, and only produce more X with features like [math]_{abc}[/math]. If an X[math]_{abd}[/math] mutated, surviving to fertility to pass on the trait, an ecology of X[math]_{abcd}[/math] could arise or even eventually replace all extant X[math]_{abc}[/math]'s, but first and foremost will still be X's.

X[math]_{abcdefghijklmnopstuvwxyz}[/math] exists, and
Y[math]_{abcdefghijklmnopstuvwxy}[/math] exists, even despite near identicality of traits, X and Y would still not mix.

The only support for evolution, even if it's misattributed, is the idea that things can change with enough time. However things do not change into other things, and this is what also defies evolution. X's will never become X2's, or G's - the method of acquiring significantly enough mutated traits even in a controlled group would still allow any X[math]_{abc}[/math] to mix with an X[math]_{gfhpbsy836z907}[/math]. No accumulation of mutations and traits, provided they did not outright defy fertility for the specific X's sole existence, would be sufficient enough to change such a complex X away from an X into a G.

The human form may change ever so slightly in skin color, facial and skull structure, height, build, but will not change significantly enough to ever become or have ever been something that wasn't or isn't "modern human". Ancient apes did not slowly change to adapt standing upright.

Are you someone else or are you now contradicting your own argument? Please elaborate on what you mean here.

Most species died, but not all species. The ones that survived were the more adaptable ones that didn't need large amounts of resources.

>Here's a better idea to wrinkle your babysmooth brain, what happened to all the great ocean dinosaurs? Why did they die out?
Are you retarded? The ocean is an incredibly delicate and interconnected ecosystem. Extreme cooling and loss of sunlight is just as devastating to the food chain in the ocean as on land. We don't just see large species going extinct in the K-Pg boundary, but also several species of plankton. Not to mention that volcanic activity was causing extreme ocean acidification even before the meteor struck.

You are quite literally the dumbest poster on /sci/. Your posts are trash without exception.
