If evolution is real why can't i grow wings

Report as

You'd need to be a form of or relative of a bird. Their bone structure are hexagonal shaped creating light bones. That's what you'd need to evolve first. It would be a mutation for us humans to have that happen. Then over a very long period of time like a billion or more years you'd evolve into a bird or flying human. But it's not possible due to evolution and it's guidelines.

Evolution is real. Take a giraffe. It wasn't born with a long neck. Survival of the fittest. The ones that had slightly longer necks than the others were able to eat more leaves off trees. The reproduced and the next generation had slightly longer necks. This process continues over and over and over until their necks are as long as they are now. Evolution is real.

@gosanta (I commenting here because, lets be honest, who's going to read the bottom comments?) There are several reasons: 1: you can't control evolution by your own volition, but scientists can force evolution, 2 Evolution "occurs" when your in the womb,3 like drakk said, our DNA is pretty far away from a birds we're probably only 95% similar.

@ nareetz and messenger64 both are true. We evolved from apes. The world is messed up so people barely know what evolution is. Besides it takes billions and billions of years for us to evolve or any other organism.

You would need to inherit the correct genes as well as you would need immense upper body strength to sustain flight. This is not a serious question... Instead of flying try, videogames?

Alright I'm not sure how old you are or what your beliefs are, but evolution is scientifically proven and is accepted by the vast majority of people. It's really not even a question whether evolution exists or not, it does and there's much evidence to prove me right.

Well I'd like to see it if humans come from monkeys than why haven't I seen any monkeys turn into humans God made the world when you die it's either heaven or hell
Report as
actualy it has bean proven wrong have you ever read some of his letters he says if you do not find the skeleten between man and ape or whatever it is (wich is the missing link) my theiory is incorrect.
Report as
Saying " I haven't seen monkeys turn into humans" is like saying, "I haven't seen Americans become Europeans". Different species evolved by branching off from other species because of adaptations, genes, change in environment. They lived in different conditions which allowed for certain genes to become more dominant because they better suited the species for its environment. And there has been documentation of species evolving. We know of thousands of species inheriting different traits, havig homologous and analogous structures, having genetic variation. All of these make evolution possible.

Yes annaruby is correct. Mary Leaky was actually the first scientist to discover bones from different primates which bridges the gap between monkeys and humans.

Sallyluvjack, billions of years ago is when earth first started changing and becoming the planet we live on now. Our universe is actually infinite. All of time is infinite, it doesn't have a start and will never have an end. You might not be able to comprehend this, but nevertheless I'm telling you this. Humans have developed a system for measuring times between two periods. We can measure back to the beginning of the world because there is none, the universe has always existed and will always exist.
Report as
Not true. The universe is 13.5 billion years old. It had a beginning with something called "The Big Bang." The universe is not eternal. All the galaxies are moving away from each other, all stars die at some point, and someday the universe will have nothing left in it.

@Sally--There certainly are billions of years ago. It is not necessary to deny science to believe in God. God wrote the laws of nature and the laws of the universe. He has always revealed new things to us when we are evolved enough to understand. That's why He sends teachers like Copernicus, Isaac Newton, and Albert Einstein.

I feel like your being sarcastic, but you already don't know so much so I wouldn't even be able to say definitively you know what an airplane is or how it was invented or created.
Report as
Actually, while this may be taken as sarcasm, it does mean something. Intelligence should have a lot to do with survival. I don't see a strong correlation between having the ability to build a plane and being able to survive, but a plane, like any other thing we create for our benefit, is from this ability, which is strongly related to our survival.

evolution is real,it is actually selective breeding.that is how the humans evolved.We would evolve with wings if we combined our dna with a bird or so.

thats not evolution thats crossbreding
Report as
That's right eagle
Report as
We can't just combine out DNA with a bird, we would have to take certain amino acid sequences to get a certain trait, however there are over trillions of different sequences that makes up even seemingly simple organisms. Scientists have found out a way to successfully give humans the trait for "wings", it is insanely complicated.
Report as
Woah sorry, scientists have NOT found that "trait for wings" that could be transferred to humans effectively, maybe in the vast future when we stop teaching kids ridiculous concepts and forcing them to believe to belief in something, this isn't 100 a.d. We can actually proven things.
Report as
I love these comments!!!
Report as
@nareetz. Finnaly someone who knows wtf theyre talkin about. Exactly. It would take around 20 years to have the correct amount and type of trait from birds and humans. Either way we can't evolve into birds or have wings. Now if everyone else on here was a dinosaur then they would evolve into a bird with wings.
P.S everyone else GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. OTHERWISE YOUR RETARDED.

That is not evolution. You speak as if your body is the mind of evolution, but more accurately, it is the environment enforcing certain attributes. Or even more accurately, it is both such that their attributes work together in some net gain we see today. This does not to say we will or will not gain wings, but as I see it now, the current environment does not enforce us to have them to survive.

My beliefs will get me far, I'm actually am a Christian (technically, my views are always slightly changing). I have faith, I'm a good person, you just need to learn for yourself and decide what you want to believe in, cause my guess is someone told you eve was molded from a rib and that god directly molded man out of the earth. Well unless you can back that up question it, evolution is proven stop kidding yourself. There's a point in time where you either go with what you were always told and live a life sheltered from other beliefs or believe what actually makes sense, is proven, and live a more educated life.

It is not necessary to deny science to believe in God. I believe in evolution AND I believe in God. The universe began 13.5 billion years ago with the Big Bang. That was the moment of creation. The first thing that came from the Big Bang was light, and the first thing the Bible says God created was light. You can be an educated person and still believe totally in God. He is revealing new wonders of His creation all the time. It is his gift to us. When we are ready to learn something new about His universe, he sends a teacher like Copernicus, Newton, and Einstein.

If evolution was't a fact, why do you have an appendix? Why do we still erect what little hair we have when we get cold? Why do we have nails on our toes? none of these things are useful to us now, they are all remnants of what our bodies used to be like before we evolved. The proof of evolution is in your body.

Evolution is a process, not a matter of will. Because living organisms live in a dynamic (changing) environment, they have to be able to adapt, or they perish. Adapting to a changing environment does not mean "put on a sweater" when the climate gets colder, but it does mean that individuals that have an extra layer of fat, or have fewer capillaries in the skin might have an advantage over those who do not. When they reproduce they pass those characteristics on to their offspring and the offspring might have an advantage in a colder climate. Over hundreds of generations individuals will eventually develop that can tolerate cold better. To develop wings in an organism would take thousands of generations, and would likely mean the loss of arms (bats and birds) or legs (insects)...unless you like having really large ears (Disney's Dumbo).
