Q: why do humans have wisdom teeth.

It's because pre-Flood humans were giants (along with all the giant mammals. giant reptiles, giant insects, etc. that we find in the fossil record). The fossil record bears witness of 9-12 ft. tall humans before the Flood.
After the Flood, humans (and everything else) got smaller due to the change in atmosphere; our skulls got smaller, but we still retained the genes for the extra molar. As our skulls got smaller, the number of teeth remained, and are now crowded out on a smaller jaw by the other teeth.

Um, no, because the fossil record shows that the "flood" didn't happen, so everything you say beyond that is utter bullshit.

You must, however, be a giant, in order to pack that much stupid into one person.

Even given that all those silly things happened... shouldn't there be any fossils around? Y'know, giga-skeletons or suchlike.

2/26/2009 1:21:54 AM


Proof or it never happened.

2/26/2009 1:22:39 AM


So they had giant skulls, but not giant teeth?

Do you creationists actually listen to yourselves?

2/26/2009 1:25:19 AM


So the jaw shrank, but the teeth didn't?

And I thought fundies were saying that evolution was a lie... Well, the flood and giant humans are a little bit off, but at least what she defined is evolution :D

"The fossil record bears witness of 9-12 ft. tall humans before the Flood."
No, it doesn't. People have been claiming to find giant skeletons for centuries, but they always turn out to be hoaxes (or conveniently disappear).

Not all humans became microcephalic. Just your direct ancestors.

2/26/2009 1:59:04 AM


Unless the gravity was a lot less back then, no way did we have 9-12' humans. Animals that are actually that size are specifically built to support the weight (and are rarely bipedal) and even the few 7-8' humans tend to suffer health problems in later life - a scaled-up human wouldn't work.

2/26/2009 2:05:03 AM

So...you're saying...we...evolved into our present state?

2/26/2009 2:13:23 AM


Okay. . . . I could come up with lots of different stories about where wisdom teeth came from and where they went (and I suspect, as with lactose tolerance, that a problem with these teeth is not a problem for the majority or the world's population), which may all be wrong, but they'd all be based on observation and known science (and be plausible. . .).

2/26/2009 2:16:23 AM


You are a nutcase

2/26/2009 2:19:33 AM


"The fossil record bears witness of 9-12 ft. tall humans before the Flood."

Does not.

And, incidentally, the geological record does not bear witness to a worldwide Flood, either.

a mind far far away

Do we need to pitch in and by you a pooper-scooper? Because this load of shit is going to take some work to clean up.

I wish Yahoo Answers showed this image on their start page:

That is the dumbest made up thing I've ever heard.

2/26/2009 2:48:50 AM


Yep! It wrong and nonsense but it does sort of have an acceptance for evolution. In some humans, those exposed to religion, the brain shrank or some of the functions became redundant.

2/26/2009 2:57:02 AM


[Citation very much needed] Oh, you made this up?

2/26/2009 3:36:40 AM


And that is how we know the earth to be banana-shaped!

2/26/2009 3:56:33 AM


And you have these fossils, or can show us where we can find these fossils?

Oh and are you saying we've EVOLVED over the last 6 thousand years? But Evolving over millions of years is utterly ridiculous?

2/26/2009 4:04:02 AM


Um ... no. Most fossil hominids were either the same size as or significantly smaller than modern humans. The only larger ones (some Homo erectus-types) were more in the 6'3" - 6'6" range, not 9 to 12 feet. Homo erectus paleojavanicus/"Meganthropus" used to be estimated at 9 feet, but this is discredited. The 9-10 foot (if bipedally standing; it would have been mostly quadrupedal) Gigantopithecus, the only true primate giant known, was related to orangutans and not even close to the human line.

2/26/2009 4:08:02 AM


Wait a minute!!! So we experienced a change in our physiology through natural selection and genetic mutation. Ha! Wait till I go to the evolutionists about this one... oh shit that is evolution.

2/26/2009 4:15:12 AM


Really, can you prove all of this?

2/26/2009 5:23:51 AM


looks like god isn't so perfect after all. he changed all our dna to make everything smaller, but he forgot about those pesky wisdom teeth. or maybe he foresaw that and decided he'd leave it up to the denstists.

2/26/2009 5:34:06 AM


Awesome, it all makes sense now! I see the light!

But I only had 3 wisdom teeth, not 4. What does that mean? Am I more evolved or less evolved? A giant or a midget? Saved or damned? Or did I just really, really enjoy the laughing gas when they were extracted and that is all that realy matters?
