Questions that go through my mind when I hurt...what if, after all these decades of removing it, the appendix is THE vital organ needed for the next step in human evolution? Are those of us that still have theirs the direct predecessors to a more-advanced human being?
"Single Parenting" has been practiced for centuries , if not millennia . I don't really think Jesus existed , but Mary impregnating herself is the only valid theory I would entertain , making said tentative individual an evolutionary potential . If amputation is what was necessary for hormonal level control , the androgynous usually elect to have one of each removed . Unfortunately , this almost always results in chronic depression , I'm a "bobcat" myself , it's no picnic . Otherwise , an electron microscope is possible , but expensive .
Well, we're always changing/evolving, and since it might be involved in digestion ( [news.nationalgeographic.com], it probably depends on how we and our descendants treat our gut.
My guess is since there is a huge disparity in access to "clean" foods, those that have to deal more with parasites/bactieria/etc. will have more use out of an appendix than, say, a middle-class American.
Oh my, I have had 16 surgeries including some serious shit and have a cadaver part implanted in me, Artificial shoulders and hip and still feel me all the time. It has no outcome on your death what so ever, Your tail bone is still there as well as your gills now evolved .
Evolution of digestive organs possibly including other functions besides food intake is not known to be heavily researched about the appendix....the word itself means attachment AND little thing on the colon. ? Maybe there prEyers are sent and received by the alleged creator or maybe was snapped off during Adham alleged rib removal to shape shift it into all women since 4004 BCE ????
Evolution doesn't work that way. As been shown, you still carry the genes to pass on. And if whatever it is about the appendix that makes it vital hasn't yet to expressed itself, there's no reason for it to change beyond random mutation. The only real impact is if a lot of children have it removed before they reach child bearing age.
I've had thoughts similar to this, however, my thoughts are more, if I don't need these primal organs, maybe I'm more advanced. I've read many things like "if you have this you're rare" including a hole in the top of the ear, a tendon in the wrist though to assist in climbing, etc. Even our head shape is changing, supposedly. If we're evolving to the point we no longer need these once vital parts, then maybe we are the next step.
