      Capybara are pretty cute. So are pacaranas, beavers, and porcupines. Look up a pacarana and them look up the extinct giant pacarana. I want to squish one.

      Scientists today debate how evolution happens and why evolution happens, but nobody is debating IF evolution happens. Evolution is a scientific theory, that is a functional explination of observed natural phenomena that is backed by all the best evidence that we have. There are theories about evolution, theories concerning evolution, and even theories within evolution. Evolution itself is a fact. Just like gravity and the shape of the Earth. Evolution itself is a fact, and nobody is arguing that today. This isn’t the 1700s or the 1950s Christian America. The evidence is all there. What else is “just a theory and therefore not a fact” in your mind? Well, there is the germ theory of disease that says germs make us sick. Cell theory says our body is made out of cells. Theory of gravity, heleocentric theory, theory of general relativity, special theory of relativity, kinetic theory of gases, atomic theory, dual inheritance theory. Need I go on? A theory in science explains a fundamental fact we can observe.

    Religion once tried to teach me that some little guy made a boat and put all the animals in it. And here is the proof! A pile of sticks on a hill. I laughed so hard. And yet even they had more evidence than these scientists making entire histories of humanity based on 2 or 3 bones.

    • @angeloalvarez5520

      April 25, 2024 at 9:42 am

      Why not Google how many fossils of this species they found, Before jumping to conclusions? Maybe they made a few assumptions, but clearly there were hobbit people there, and island dwarfism is definitely interested as well

    • @angeloalvarez5520

      April 25, 2024 at 9:47 am

      Apparently they found about 9 individuals which would add up to a lot more bones than you think. Archaeologists also look at other things, like where they were found and they study their teeth to get an idea of their diet. You’d probably find this stuff interesting if you didn’t immediately dismiss it

    Now komodo dragons makes sense , they might not be that big, to those short guys, they might as well have been.
