    Interesting question.

    Do other species avoid eating their own?

    Which appears to be answered as, "they are disappearing now".
    Well, they are disappearing now, but that's not exactly because of evolution or lack of evolution. As climate and environment have changed, all animals have evolved to some degree or another. Some of the great apes died off. Some evolved into species of humans that no longer exist. Some evolved into modern great apes. Some evolved into modern humans. It's only in the last couple hundred years that the great apes really started to die off because of humans.

    The apes evolved from earlier tree monkeys, which evolved from rats. Yet there are still tree monkeys and rats today. It's a bit imprecise to say that we evolved from apes, or that apes evolved from tree monkeys or rats or whatever though. It would be more accurate to say we evolved from animals whose skeletons very closely resemble those of modern apes, and which were covered in hair like them, and those animals evolved from animals whose skeletons resemble modern lemurs and tailed monkeys, and so on. There aren't really colloquial names for the species that existed 20 million years ago, so we often use words that people understand like apes. If you say we evolved from Dryopithecus Major no one knows what you mean, but it probably looked something like this:

    Can you source this claim?

    Many don't. Both dogs and cats do. The female Black Widow eats the mail after sex...always seemed a bit evil to me.

They reproduce like bunnies and teach all their little bunnies to be just as ignorant as they are. It's a numbers game. We're going to lose again.

    One area where comparison of genome sequences isn't all that relevant, says Moran, is the emerging science of transplanting organs and tissues from pigs to humans.

    "[The success of pig-human transplants] has very little to do with whether there's a two per cent or 20 per cent difference in the genome sequence — if those numbers actually meant anything anyway — the main barrier is caused by just one gene," says Moran.

    No it doesn't. You have no concept of biological evolution. It is a continuing processs. Certain species evolve beyond others, but the previous species can remain.

    Become educated.
