comment What are these two fruit flies doing?
From what I can tell, the one that flies away is a male while the subject is a female correct? That also leads me to believe this has something to do with reproduction. My guess. Curious to see an answer.

comment What gaseous substances do humans emit?
A discovery I made during research is that while being poisonous to the central nervous system, methanol is a natural endogenous compound found in normal, healthy human individuals. One study found a mean of 4.5 ppm in the exhaled breath of the subjects. dx.doi.org/10.1088%2F0967-3334%2F27%2F7%2F007

comment Before Evolution was proposed by Charles Darwin, what were the leading secular theories to explain how life developed?
@Remi.b I did not know that all theories before Darwinism were listed under the umbrella of evolution. For example the theory of Spontaneous generation, did that ever have any mainstream acceptance within the scientific community?

comment How did bullying arise evolutionarily?
What you might find interesting is now many domains of study can contribute to your answer. For example economics and culture might play a part in the onset of behaviors deemed oppressive or intimidating.

comment During famine, does the human body do anything to prioritize which organs receive nutrients?
Are you sure this is right: "ketone bodies in the liver and to be used by the brain as fuel". If I recall correctly the human brain uses glucose as fuel.

comment How is evolution possible in contemporary humans?
No I haven't. I will add Existence to the top of my reading list. While we are on the topic have you heard of any research or peer reviewed studies referencing a theory like this one?

This might be a perverse theory, but what if what we identify today as "development disorders" like autism, is actually evolution responding to modern information age pressures
