If airplanes evolved from bicycles, why are there still bicycles?

    Actually- airplanes DID evolve from bicycles!

    That's what the Wright brother's did.

    It's actually a reasonably good analogy. Bicycles are still evolving, as are planes, and there is still a place for bicycles in this world.

    Market forces dictate that there is a demand for BOTH bicycles and airplanes. Hence both continue to exist and evolve. Bicycles occupy the short distance travel economic niche, while airplanes fill the long distance travel economic niche. But I suspect that you are being rhetorical. If airplanes are intelligently designed, why do so many crash? Explain that!

    Exactly... Some may call this stupid, but I think it is a very well phrased question for the "Lower Life Forms" like religious folk to be able to understand...

    ★God's OK On Abortion

    "And when he hath made her drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people. And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed." (Numbers 5:27-28)

    They both evolved along different lines from a separate pre-bicycle ancestor. (I think it was the unicycle, but I could be wrong.)

    Because if you took the DNA molecule of a bike and compared it to that of an aircraft, you would see that the last 100,000 strands of the aircraft are different, as there would be a divergence.
