Cows' millk.

Follow the link I posted. Voyageur is correct: not all human populations can digest cows' milk, and, as with the general concept, it demonstrates human evolution in response to human agricultural practices.

If you look at mammalian species around the world, you will find precious few mature organisms that continue to consume milk.

And what part of your beliefs can you prove? None. Didn't think so.

If he could prove it, he wouldn't need to call it "belief".

This is why all religion is "belief." Nothing more.

I'm thinking along the same lines. In essence to me I think the idea of the singularity it basically right overall in where the human society (post human society) is headed. Granted I do disagree with the time line Ray Kurzweil had put forth. I'm thinking is a bit further in the future than he predicts.

Technological singularity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
