comment Could below zero decibel environment cause arrhythmia?
What are you referring to when you say "self-preservance reflexes"?

comment Why did abiogenesis only happen once?
@ChinmayKanchi - I remember a few years back that some researchers found some (assumed) Archae members that had some surprisingly different inheritable material. Not completely new genetic material, but odd nucleotides IIRC. I haven't heard about it since, so I don't know if it was ever verified.

comment How is it proved, that antediluvian people didn't live for hundreds of years?
@SuzanCioc - The problem is that without some basic assumptions the current scientific understanding can't actually answer your question. What is possible is significantly different from what is supported. If you have questions regarding a specific data type - like morphology or genetic data - then you'd get a more specialized and more detailed response. Simply saying "We weren't there so how can we know for sure?" is sort of like trying to prove I'm human and not a computer program despite only communicating online. ;-) In order for things to function, basic things must be assumed 'true'.

comment Human evolution: Where *exactly* did the first human come from, whose parents were not?
@Jim - I didn't call them our ancestors. I called them our 'closest evolutionary cousins' as the species we evolved from are now extinct (although they did use tools as well - but we've known that for some time).
