A question for atheist or for any one that believes in evaluation.

So if evaluation is true and life is constantly evolving to adapting to it's environment then wouldn't that mean that the fact the man uses medicine for healing cause humans to become week? Because we can not evolve into a stronger/ better humans that a resilient to diseases when we are looking for cures ? Aren't we just making supper bugs not supper humans ? If so how can you justify the use of medicine? Should we just let the "week" people die off?

  • Do you mean "evolution?" The meaning of evolution doesn';t mean adapting to the environment, simply put, evolution is that all life on Earth shares a common ancestor.Some think evolution means that we're all distant cousins: humans and oak trees, hummingbirds and whales. Some believe this is how humans evolved.

  • "Aren't we just making super bugs not super humans ? If so how can you justify the use of medicine? Should we just let the "weak" people die off?"


    Super bugs is a term doc put out there cause these germs are immune to antibiotics cause docs have have been over prescribing them to their patients. For example MRSA infections aren't serious, some can be life-threatening. Many public health experts are alarmed by the spread of tough strains of MRSA. Because it's hard to treat, MRSA is sometimes called a "super bug."


    As for super humans, well have you heard of Stan Lee?? He has a series called "Stan Lee's Super Humans"

  • I think it shows human advancement, that we are able to come up with things to cure diseases.

  • What you are talking about has nothing to do with evaluation. Only healing of the body. It will not stop us from evolving.

  • Those "super-bugs" to which you refer are a great example of evolution (not evaluation). Those bacteria and viruses have adapted to their environment by becoming immune to the drugs that were developed to destroy them. Unfortunately, smaller organisms like that seem to be quicker to evolve than larger, more complex beings. The argument you are trying to make isn't valid. As a side note, however, I don't believe we are doing ourselves or our environment any favors by overusing antibiotics or other meds because we can't adapt as quickly as bacteria and viruses can.

  • Medicine in itself is and example of EVOLUTION. It has been around forever however has evolved into modern medicine. Evolution is around you every day. You see it every day you just has to open your eyes. The fact that we can now send a man to the moon (well not now since obama but still have the technology to), Cure diseases that use to kill, and have a democracy in-place all show evolution. There are different manners of evolution. Physical, mannerism, society, etc have all evolve from it's beginning state of being.

  • *begin smart ass mode*
    I thought everyone believe in EVALUATION. I mean, don't we all evaluate things in our lives?
    *end smart ass mode*


    Those little germs and bugs are also evolving. Some things evolve faster than others. Medicines and finding ways to make the human body last longer IS part of EVOLUTION.

  • Superbugs are mutating to become resillient to antibiotics.  They are the ones that are evolving in this instance. 


    The biggest and most immediate threat to humanity (apart from ourselves) is the virus.  That is because of our huge population and close proximity to others.  An outbreak of just one virus can decimate a huge portion of the population.    I only live about an hour from Toronto where 44 people died from SARS in 2002/2003.  It killed 800 people worldwide.  We were lucky, it could have been much worse.

  • Evolution isn't just about making the biggest, baddest, human there is. It's about ensuring survival in the first place, adapting to our environment. Part of this has been our learning how to use fire to cook and warm ourselves, part of it has been other scientific discoveries that help with health and well-being, and some of it has been the advancement of medicine. Our ability to learn and discover these things IS evolution, because our ability to comprehend is growing as well.

    Not all strains of virus, etc, turn into "super bugs". And the idea of evolution doesn't mean that each and every human life isn't valuable...
