I have all my wisdom teeth

And I will keep them all until the day I die as long as I keep them clean and healthy. I guess I disprove evolution. Hey, if having one's wisdom teeth removed supposedly proves evolution, then the opposite is just as true.

So far, I have one wisdom tooth that came through that was fine, and one that came through that had to be removed.

Therefore evolution is both true and false simultaneously!

So, you haven't evolved. Not a shock. And nothing to be proud of dingbat.

I have a good friend who never got her wisdom teeth. We tease her and call her the missing link. She is 42 yrs old so I don't think she will be getting them soon.

Another friend is an dental hygenist and she says that she has seen a few people come in that have never gotten their wisdom teeth. Maybe in a few thousand years no one will have them, who knows?

I have all mine as well, and I haven't had any trouble with them, but my husband and two sons had to have theirs removed.

I have all my wisdom teeth too. I'm in my 40's and they so far have never been a bother to me. That may or may not change someday, if and when it does I'll deal with it then.

It proves nothing except that everyone's teeth are different.

I could have kept mine too, but I didn't. Hope you don't go deaf from Eustachian Tube infection. Lack of space for Wisdom teeth is proof of good dentistry, not evolution. Wisdom teeth themselves, or a smaller jaw size, might be a selected beneficial mutation however. They're spares. Ever notice how teeth crowd forward with age? This is especially true if you don't have a perfect dental arch, or one that hasn't been corrected with orthodontics, or you have a tooth pulled.

I think I have three, one just disintegrated on me, there were just splinters left. Does that mean I'm evolving in my lifetime? I thought evolution was a process that took several generations. But what do I know?

"A short bit of background on this: One of Conservapedia's "proofs" of creationism was that humans have the exact number of teeth to fit in their jaws."
Just like we have the exact number of eyeballs to fit in the eyesockets in our skulls. Amazing!
(Except the people who are born without eyeballs. Guess God's assembly workers were out on lunch when they were created...)

Yep, better hold on to those wisdom teeth. They're the closest thing to wisdom you'll ever have.

Some people have their tonsils removed and they grow back.
That proves car, zebra and marmalade.
See, I can use fundie logics too!

I think it pretty much just proves you got a big mouth.

I don't have any wisdom teeth , never had them to begin with . What now?

I have my tonsils and appendix, but my wisdom teeth were removed (they were growing sideways into my jaws, ouch!).
Does that make me the missing link, thus proving evolution?

Swing and a miss. It is the PRESENCE of wisdom teeth and the need to have them removed that can be considered to be evidence of evolution. By keeping them, you preserve yourself as a specimen possessing vestigial features, offering evidence FOR evolution.

I have both of the wisdom teeth I was born with, my appendix, my tonsils and have only had to have surgery twice in my entire life, both minor surgeries when I wasn't even two years old, what's your point?

Shhoting fish in a barrel. conservapedia is a parody of itself.

Well, I had only 3 wisdom teeth, meaning I was born with the capacity to have one less useless tooth. I had them removed so I wouldn't have to deal with the pain that I would have experience later in life as per the the diagnosis of their growth pattern, being they would have impacted my main molars. That and since I had only 3, and since wisdom teeth push the teeth forward, I would assume that it would push my teeth unevenly due to lack of one on one side.

It is a fact that due to the change of diet over the past thousands of years, the human jaw has gradually become smaller, even though the wisdom teeth still exist. However, I think instances where people are born with less teeth is an indication that we are slowly losing the need of them as a species.

And I will keep them all until the day I die as long as I keep them clean and healthy.

Proof that the posters at Conservapedia are less evolved than the rest of us.

Not only did I have my wisdom teeth yanked, I had four additional teeth pulled because they had no adult behind them and my jaw was crowded.

Okay, now that we've shared the landscapes of our mouths... what the hell are you talking about?

I only have the bottom ones. And they're impacted, and hurt like hell- apparently my mother suffered the same problem. But I fail to see what you're talking about.

Wisdom teeth alone don't prove or disprove anything. For what it's worth, however, I have one wisdom tooth, which erupted a few weeks after its neighbouring molar had to be removed due to an infection (caused by an injury, my oral hygiene is perfectly fine). None of my other wisdom teeth have erupted, and I still have all of my other molars. Losing a molar often encourages you wisdom tooth to grow in, not just in my case either. This would seem to support the theory that our wisdom teeth acted as backups for the time when we lacked dentistry, and were prone to losing our teeth.

I plan on keeping this tooth, even though it creates minor discomfort. It grew in at a weird angle due to the missing molar, so it, unlikely my other wisdom teeth, manages to kind of fit into my jaw, and it gives me more biting space. I'm getting the other three removed when they start to come in, though. Based on x-rays, they aren't going to fit into my jaw, particularly the top two.

So, I wonder what my mouth proves by this guy's logic? That one quarter of our bodies were created, and the rest evolved? Evolution is 1/4 false and 3/4 true? Who knows?

And despite the fact that my entire family has 3 or 4 wisdom teeth, I was born with one. So either god loves me more than my brother or my genes have mutated from my parents. I'm betting it's the latter.

My x-rays confused the hell out of my dentist until she called in her partner who had seen something like it before. I had five of them.

My top two wisdom teeth were coming in fine, but the bottom two were going to cause problems as there wasn't enough space for them. I ended up having all four removed. The fifth will never emerge on it's own; it is a midget tooth and way back on the top. They tried to get it during surgery but it was out of reach.

It was fun as hell telling my family about it, "yeah, I had four of my wisdom teeth pulled, but they couldn't get to the fifth."

What worries me is my canines. The roots are so long they are pressing up against my sinus cavity. They haven't peirced it yet, but a strong hit to my hansom face could cause a lot of problems for me.

The result: evolution provided me with a smaller mouth than my dad (who still has all four), a mutation caused a fifth tooth that will never be useful, surgery is almost certainly in my future, and you're an idiot.
