can u give me the details about the theory of charles darwin about the giraffe????according to his theory while charles darwin's theory about the giraffe is that, there were 2 class of giraffes before the long and short necks, because i think in my understanding, the survival for living for the shorter necks of giraffe were very difficult and they died while the long necks of giraffes have survived using their long necks, they used it in reaching food in higher places. then the heritage was develop. thats all folks!

Okay, consider this example. Take the case of stray dogs. I have not really done this experiment. I'm only predicting outcomes here. If you raise your hand to mimic the gesture of throwing a stone, notice what happens - the dogs takes caution. It runs. Now let me raise your curiosity further: suppose this dog for some reason has not had exposure to humans or other dogs at all since birth. It is some how trying to live, and it is doing rather well at that. Now, out of the blue, let some human being mimic the gesture of throwing the stone at him. What will happen now?
I predict the dog will take to its heels.
Now why don't disprove me and explain this in the context of evolution. It would really help.
One other fact of life. This time consider new born babies. As soon as infants are out of their mother's womb, they are cute silent creatures to look at, until they fall hungry. The mother then gives them their breast.Now IT IS A PERFECTLY NORMAL THING. But strangely they know how to suckle as well. Isn't that food for thought? How do they know?
What is the issue with the idea of survival here? Say that the infant did not have the software to suckle. What then? Would it live?

I was working for the BLM out in the desert all summer, so I didn't have access to the net. Now I'm back at school though, so I can post more.
Still, I probably won't post as much as I used to, just because I'm so darn busy w/classes, job, and my club.
