Humans. We have been around for a while now. When we think about our past we think about ancient civilizations, the pyramids, stuff like that. But this is only a tiny, tiny part of our history.

  12. JR Johnson says:

    I’m laughing at this comment section… it’s so funny…people arguing
    about the Bible, and if God exists or not, it’s hillarious. Not only are
    the people that believe that we came from nothing wrong, but the people
    that beleive in Christ are wrong too. They don’t need to act the way they
    do, nobody is gonna want to become a christian that way. And the people
    that don’t believe God exists… It’s an old saying I’m sure you’ve heard
    before. And none of you can answer it either. Which came first, the
    chicken, or the egg? If you can give me a legit, valid, scientific answer
    to this question, then you’re right, and I’m wrong. But if you can’t then
    you’re wrong and I’m right. Since people want to do what they want, and
    live their own selfish and sinfull lives, they’ll do everything they can to
    prove he doesn’t exist. But if we came from nothing, then why do we exist?
    Do we truely live to die? Do we have no purpose? Where do our morals come
    from, our races, our first languages, you can’t tell me they come from

    People still don’t understand what is the Scientific theory :I

    A scientific theory is a WELL-SUBSTANTIATED explanation of some aspect of
    the natural world that is acquired through the scientific method and
    repeatedly TESTED and CONFIRMED through observation and experimentation.

    So much people against Evolution Theory, just go back to your trees and
    stay there for the next 3 milion years,
    maybe Earth is flat too? or Sun is circling around the Earth.

    rats send from aliens to watch how intelligent life survives in a hostile
    earth. Also screw religion.
