|MadSci Network: Evolution|
If I understand the way evolution works correctly, the first stage is a random mutation. Then, through the process of selection (survival of the fittest) the bad mutations are killed off and only the good mutations stay. But not all mutations are life or death - My question is why after so many years are we still so similar too our predecesors and why don't we have any really useless body parts. For example, if someone is born with 6 fingers instead of 5, this doesn't kill him off, in fact it even helps him. Why dont we all have 6 fingers then? I hope you understood my question :-)
