The why are human beings so adapted poorly for survival? Even primates have better survival physical bodies. They are stronger physically and have thick padded feet. Human beings? Without shoes, our feet would be a mess. Why would evolution evolve humans with weaker feet and sensitive skin that burns easily under the sun? Looks like the opposite should have occurred.

Human beings are much more susceptible to disease and cancer than even our supposely primate relatives.
If we really evolved from primates then evolution really sucks at survival.

The question becomes why? Well the scientific answer is that the human testicles have to be cooler the normal body temperature otherwise sperm will not be produced. Now the strange part about that is, that many mammals have internal testicles including rhinoceroses, all marine mammals, and elephants. Even more interesting is, that birds have internal testicles, and their body temperature is higher than humans.

If there was an intelligent designer out there, why would that designer make humans handicapped, yet be able to make rhinoceros testicles that can be internal?
Actually the testicles are internal as you are referring to the sac or the ******* that is external, so this is a very intelligent design when one needs a certain body temperature to produce sperm and how it reacts to weather changes.


are male testicles inside the human body - Bing images

Testicles are proof of intelligent design. Look at all of the intelligently-designed pickup trucks that have testicles on the trailer hitch.

Survival is just that: survival. And for purposes of natural selection, only survival long enough to pass on your genes. If your feet hurt or your skin is burnt, it is fine so long as you procreate before either one of those things kills you and you pass on your thing footed, fair skinned genes.

I am not arguing for or against natural selection, simply describing how it works.

I could as well ask, if god designed humans, why did he give them thin feet and fair skin? Looks like a poor design.

The beauty of natural selection is that it has no agency. You can't really criticize it, only observe it. Once something has agency then if it created you with exposed testicles or thin feet or to be cancer prone or whatever, AND claims to be loving and kind AND promises to love and protect you, you have a conundrum on your hands.

I don't subscribe to atheism because of this, but it's a nice side benefit. No more "why me", "what did I do wrong", "why didn't god keep his promises", "why do the wicked prosper". Life is just stuff happening. It's not personal and it doesn't owe you anything and you don't owe it anything.

lmao. show me how they could have been made any better under the conditions they were made. So they were made exactly the best way. All this shows is that "they" have the characteristics wrong, not if "it" is there or not.

However, it does show that literal bible is less valid then a metaphorical, lesson style, bible. Literal bible is meaningless. In fact it shows that the latter is more valid than the "nothing" stance. The fundy need "this" world to be real because they see no other.

lol, yeah, ignorance is so bliss. Sometimes how I wish I had less free will, I could just jump on the anti religion smash train. Be that as it may. Temperature is an issue due to the nature of the sperm. It has to carry a lot of information a pretty fair way.

We don't suck at survival. Look at how many of us there are. And our soft feet is a response to wearing shoes. The disease and cancer is a result of the crap we eat.
