    if you are {or pretending you are} a creationist, what do you see as the most convincing evidence for evolution?

    damn anthropology...i chose to answer that question instead of 11 other wack ass questions. i hate this class. just wanted to share that with you.

    as a creationist... looking for a near proof of evolution....

    supergerms! Strains of nasties that have become resistant to antibiotics.

    if simple cells can adapt over a few years to be imune to what used to kill them,
    it's as close to proof as you can get.

    whoo! *high five*

    but i found a different critical thinking question to ask. something more easier, i guess. here it is:

    how would you design the ideal body for a very cold climate? how about for a very hot one?

    i'm pretty sure this won't be as hard for me since there's a picture of a person in cold weather (alaska) and hot weather (africa) in my anthropology book. :beat:

    ooh whee!

    "short limbs and stocky bodies serve to conserve heat."

    "...slender bodies with long digits and limbs are advantegeous in tropical climates. such bodies increas body surface relative to mass and allow for more efficient heat dissipation."

    now to put that and then some into one page. haha.

    anthropology was one of the coolest classes i took in high school. it was pretty awesome. i could have answered that last question based on that. i've got 2 dif anthro text books too. woo.

    as a creationist(partially) i'd say deez nutz are the most convincing thing.

    how about this for a twist...

    how does climate affect the concept of personal space?

    uhh...people feel comfortable standing near each other to talk in cold weather while in hot weather it's the opposite? :confused:

    or the opposite...

    people cover themselves in cold weather and are less approachable.
    but in the heat, people wear less clothing and are therfore more attractive and inviting.
