If humans evolved from the simplest substance over the course of 4 billion years they must have done it through mutations, right? That's all fine and dandy but if you look at todays society how willing are we to accept this? Take for instance a person born with 6 fingers. Genetic mutation. The body has evolved and found that it needs 6 fingers to better operate it's daily tasks. How is this looked upon in society. Most people might say he's a freak because he is not part of the norm. He doesn't have 5 fingers like everyone else should. But if we were meant to evolved then shouldn't we be more accepting of these genetic variations? At what point in time will we all have 6 fingers? Let's say the 6 fingered man decides to get the 6th finger surgically removed so he can be just like everyone else. Then we would have set ourselves back hundreds of thousands of years because we were supposed to evolve in such a way but we don't. Aren't we just holding ourselves back?
