  • Is there an alternative scientific theory/hypothesis to evolutionary theory, for how the many species of plants and animals came to exist?

    I mean that is NOT based on religious/theistic accounts, but an actual scientific hypothesis/theory which has the potential to be falsifiable..

  • Why do humans kill each other?

    Best answer: I feel like it's an evolutionary thing. Waaay back in the day, humans had to constantly fight and kill predators to survive as well as hunt and kill prey so they could eat. As time went on and we evolved and progressed to the point we're at now, the need to fight and hunt for survival is gone. But I think... show more
    Best answer: I feel like it's an evolutionary thing. Waaay back in the day, humans had to constantly fight and kill predators to survive as well as hunt and kill prey so they could eat. As time went on and we evolved and progressed to the point we're at now, the need to fight and hunt for survival is gone. But I think that primal urge/instinct is still ingrained in us, and might be the reason we do things like boxing and UFC, fist fights, or things like lots of exercise or playing videogames, anything to get that rush of adrenaline or release of anger and stress.

    I think people that kill can't find their outlet, and so that urge/instinct hits a tipping point to where they explode and the end result is murder.

    If you're looking for more surface reasons:
    Anger
    Hate
    Money (hired or life insurance)
    To get out of marriage
    To hide an affair
    Gang initiation
    Drunk (usually with anger)
    High (altered state of mind)
    A lack of care/concern for others lives
    Ego
    Power
    Government (Army)
    Control
    Etc, etc.

    Best answer: Animals that can see in the dark are known as nocturnal animals, and many of these animals are desert dwellers that evolved into nocturnal animals to avoid the extreme heat of the desert in the daytime.For one, they have big eyes. Nocturnal hunters like owls and cats have pupils that, when open wide, cover the entire front of the eye. So do tree frogs, which have to be able to jump from branch to branch. In owls, eye size approaches the extreme: their eyes occupy over half the volume of their skulls.

    There are also physiological differences between the eyes of nocturnal and diurnal animals. Owls’ eyes are tubular, rather than spherical, with a very large lens positioned close to the retina. This structure allows a lot of light to register on the retina, but at the expense of flexible focusing. Owls are thought to be somewhat far-sighted. Tubular eyes cannot rotate in their sockets like the spherical eyes you and I have, so owls compensate with incredibly flexible necks that allow them to turn their heads 270 degrees.

    Many nocturnal animals have a mirror-like layer, called the tapetum, behind the retina, which helps them make the most of small amounts of light. Light that passes through the retina is reflected off the tapetum, giving the retinal cells a second chance to sense it. This makes some animals’ eyes shine in the glare of car headlights. The color you see is the pigment on the inner layer of the retina.

    At the heart of all vision is the retina, which contains two types of light-sensing cells: rods and cones. Cones account for color vision but require bright, focused light, whereas rods can sense very dim, scattered light, but don’t produce a color image

  • What would happen if a person's brain was awake 24/7?

    Best answer: Since your brain is already active 24/7 (which is why we have dreams in the first place), nothing would happen in your scenario.

  • Do any animals besides humans do food pairings?

    As eating a salad, I wondered if monkeys dip their bananas into ant hills or if bears carry their fish back to a favorite blueberry patch or if it is a purely human thing to do.
