Legs are for walking, flippers are for swimming...
but there are some exceptions, same for alligators
flippers are legs that adapted to the water
Yes swim before you can walk (on land). Tadpoles to frogs is an excellent example.
Yes that's the current accepted idea.
Its funny, before I got my head around it, I thought evolution meant that things adapted in some purposeful way to a new environment. But its not really like that is it. Natural selection where random genetic changes accidentally create a more adapted species. And the less adapted eventually die off. Well that make a lot more sense.
Cave spiders over time due to light deprivation have no eyes , now if that was reversed and they were put back into the light would they eventually grow their eyes back or not ?
I would hazard to say yes they would grow eyes back, if they were albino because of living in darkness I would think they eventually would get some pigment back in their skins, maybe future generations would...
If there is an intelligent underground species that came out into the surface, many would probably die, some would survive and future generations would adapt better and better...
Evolution I think must have been created as for those who think along the lines of the infinite constant as 1 and not O are confirming manifestation from O to 1 by pure magic. People shifting the starting line doesn't mean it never began.
I did learn of size being key to our success after then impact event. Herbivores first followed by those on which they fed, in order of size from big to small until the largest left carnivore died out, leaving small mammals in the ring without the usual worries. No Yucatan slammer then I think we could still be heading in the same direction but look completely different. Bird man.
It could be the planet of the monkeys if the Chinese keep experimenting with these monkeys and make them smarter...
Chinese scientists implant human brain genes into monkeys to make them SMARTER
Researchers in China inserted human versions of MCPH1, a gene that scientists believe plays a role in the development of the human brain, into 11 rhesus monkeys.
The future might look something like this.
Well, he is close....
Origin of Dolphins. It is generally believed that all marine mammals evolved from land based ancestors around 50-60 million years ago. ... The closest living relatives of dolphins today are the even toed ungulates such as camels and cows with the humble hippopotamus being the closest living relative.

A shame, the party was going splendidly until .....
When exactly did 'hand the ape a loaded machine gun' seem like the very best idea in the whole wide world?'
Oh God, I needed that ....
Actually, something like this is what I am worried about every time I go to a range
I had to watch that again for a morning laugh, thanks...
Humans Are Just 0.01% of Life on Earth, But We Still Annihilated The Rest of It
Of the 550 GT of life on the planet, animals (like fluffy the bunny and the ape with the AK47) are 2 GT.
Planet of the plants and microbes.
The animals are just window dressing.
Urban Tarzan lol...(and a chimp drunk from cough syrup with a gun)
