Near the Wulingyuan district of Zhangjiajie City, Hunan, China, saw a statue of evolution. I was so moved. I hope other countries erect evolution statues.
Let’s see the faces of our ancestors. We humans look like our ancestors. Aren’t we? I am not particularly fond of human species. But I am proud of some enlightened humans, among them are the scientists who tell us the truth about our universe and our evolution. Nothing is more beautiful and fascinating than the truth.
I hope science will free the minds of all humans from the bondage of superstition and ignorance.
Australopithecus afarensis. Lived 3.2 million years ago.
Australopithecus africanus. Lived 2.5 million years ago.
Paranthropus aethiopicus. Lived 2.5 million years ago.
Homo ergaster. Turkana boy, lived 1.5 million years ago.
Homo heidelbergensis. Lived 500,000 to 350,000 years ago.
Homo neanderthalensis. He lived 56,000 years ago.
Australopithecus sediba was half human-like and half chimp-like animal.
Researchers said, “Sediba shows a strange mix of primitive australopithecine traits and derived Homo traits — face and anterior dentition like Homo, shape of the cranium like Homo, other parts of the face and size of the cranium like an australopithecine, arms like an australopithecine, pelvis and lower limbs like Homo and feet and ankles like an australopithecine!”
After having all the evidences of evolution, I wonder how billions of people still continue believing in funny Adam and Eve story!
She is like my grandma. She looks as if she is saying:
tora ato gondogol koris na to. toder jwalay ektu bishram nite partasi na. chupchap thakte paros na kisukkhon? khaisos, ekhon ghuma. oto lafanir ki hoise? bandrami kom kor. oi pulapan, maramari koris na. shanto hoia shuia thak. ar ta jodi na paros taile ami choila jaitasi. dekhi ektu shantite kothao bishram nite pari ki na. toder moto bandor der sathe ar thaka jaitase na.
Early birds had four wings. They had wings on their legs more than 100 million years ago.
First, paleontologists spread the word that modern birds are actually living dinosaurs. Then came the news from China that some dinosaurs and related reptiles long ago seemed to be marvelous four-winged creatures, seemingly on standby at some runway for takeoff in flight as early birds.
Birds evolved from feathered dinosaurs. They gradually lost feathers on their feet and then their legs, and today, modern birds have wings on their arms only. Will it be possible for any living beings to fly without wings in some millions of years? Sometimes I fly in my dreams. I imagine my arms as wings.
It is nice to see camels roam freely. It is not nice to see they still pull ploughs, turn waterwheels and transport tons of heavy goods along desert routes. Domesticated camels have been exploited by humans for thousands of years. They are forced to become slaves of humans. I wish I could let them free. They have the right to roam wherever they want.
Have you ever heard of disposable penis? It exists.
It is Chromodoris reticulata. It loses but re-grows and re-uses its penis. You don’t believe me? Please read it.
The little sea slugs are “simultaneous hermaphrodites”, they have both male and female sexual organs and can use them both at the same time.
Sea slugs are not the only animal who lose their penis. Orb weaver spiders also lose their penis after sex. They lose penis, but it grows again. Why do they have to lose penis if it has to regrow? A very valid question. Scientists say:
‘In the first act of copulation the penis may be used to remove any sperm left by any competitors that its partner has mated with.
With the first penis and the rival sperm then abandoned – the second penis can be used to inject the sea slug with another dose of its own sperm, ensuring that their genes are the ones that are passed on.’
What if humans had disposable penis? Most likely men will not have disposable penis until women seriously sleep around. How much I wish to see men’s disposable penis!
