comment Can this theory on the evolution of human appearance be flawed?
Please look at my edit, which is in bold, as well as the new paragraph below it. Do you have anything more to say?

comment Is there any biological reason that professional swimming is dominated by white people?
Yeah I've been told about the bone density one, sounds like a load of rubbish.

comment Productive turnover and generations in the fruit fly
Yes I'm still at school, I'm 16. I'm well aware of the length of time it would take and why would you need to be a famous scientist? Also, if Elder and Lenski gave reasons for wanting invested money (if they did at all), I'm sure I could give the same reasons. But yes, overall, rather discouraging

comment The evolution of dogs through domestication and artificial selection
You say strange, but then surely (and this is where natural selection would no doubt come in), the genes of those dogs that were 'cuter' AND friendlier would have passed on more often than the others.

That would make perfect sense, I couldn't imagine it happening in such short time if there wasn't variability in the genome, thank you.

Yeah I read about this, their appearance even changed dramatically!

Later on in the book he does mention that it's 1million years ago that the wolves started becoming village-scavengers (which of course kicked off the domestication of them), I had asked this question before I read that part.

Would you say my reason seems unreasonable?

comment The evolution of dogs through domestication and artificial selection
@nico The reason it would seem quite untrue is because (to me) even through artificial selection, evolving from a wolf to the vast amount of breeds of dog we have now in centuries seems like a very short amount of time. But I do accept it's true and don't doubt him. Do you know roughly how long ago it was when only wolves were present?
