This question has bugged me all my life. Where did humanity come from? And why? I will be happy to listen to all of your theories.

The ultimate answer to this question is: the last generation of people before you.

From since human started eating flesh and absorbed all attributes from animals..

err..

But seriously, since human kind started to drift away from animalistic instincts and started developing humanic awareness and intelligence?

Mhh... crossopterygian got outta the water and was transformed due to the radioactivity that was resident at primal-earth (his genes in fact). That was goin on for some time so shore- and land-living reptiles evolved.

Reptiles rul0red for some time. Then mammals took over. Pro'lly meteor impact or heavy volcanic activity.

At some time ape-like animals divided into some branch that developed into humans.

Here is one theory about asians... it's absolutely ridiculous though.

Since when has "Asian" been a race?

I'm not sure wuite what you're asking in the OP - do you mean why humanity specifically (pure chance) why here (chance again, though of course we wouldn't be here to worry about it if we were somewhere else) or the Ultimate Question, in which case the most sensible answer ever given is "42". There's no purpose to our existence if you ask me, apart from those we set ourselves - evolution is directionless, it has no goal "im mind" and humans aren't the "end point" - we've just slowed natural selection down a bit by ending up on top of the food chain and having sufficient medical knowledge to remove a lot of selective pressure.

you are asking the wqrong questions. Humanity didn't come from a "where" (some will tell me it came from Africa, which is true, but I like I said insignificant), it came from a "when"! simply put, humainty came from the past. but that is an oversimplified version of my theory.
as to why, not only doen't anyone know that, but due to Turing's great theorem it is impossible for the human socium to correctly and fully comprehend it's purpose. it is possible to get an approximation (!) of our function using extrapolation though, but as of today we have been uncapable of doing so.

Interesting, I plan to start digging a little deeper into the theories of this Turing guy. k:

Edit : Oh yes, the guy from the Turing machines. No why didn't that ring a bell right away, even saw about him in school. Memory leak. :wallbash:

What has ragnarok to do with dacians?
