Question of Human adaptability
I am an atheist and believe in Evolution - So there is no creationist agenda. I suppose I will post this in freethinkers if creationists take over this thread. Anyway, I have a question about understanding man as an animal.
When you see animals, you can see how mutations and adaptability have helped them in their certain circumstance. Even monkey's, if they are in the jungle, or high on top a rugged mountain, you can see how they've adapted to that specific environment. How come I do not see that trait in humans? It seems that they're suited to every environment and climate on the whole of the earth. Humans are the same throughout each corner of the earth, with little change. That's certainly not something you'd see in other animals.
That is not a subtext or lead in for a creationist. I truly want to know how it is that we as animals seem to have broken away from every other animal. That could end up being a larger question regarding consciousness, language, etc; however, I would like to keep it narrowed to adaptability.
