All of that for one branch to become a dead end at me.

This is inaccurate - we shared common ancestors with those animals but we didn't evolve FROM monkeys, dinosaurs, lizards, and do on. We don't know what a lot of these common ancestors look like but it's not like what exist on earth these days. For example the divergence of the reptiles and mammals led to the common ancestor of reptile-like ancestors that have a stance akin to a lizard - we're thinking more like platypuses. Not saying this is trash but I would suggest this is an example of common ancestry rather "how humans evolved." Sauce: science teacher, undergrad was physiology and neurobiology and I love evolution.

I can see why some of those "Evolution is too convoluted to have happened naturally" religious people who hasn't taken a biology class might find this confusing or unbelievable. Nature is awesome.

When the fish begin to grow legs, how did this happen? Were the stumps getting longer and longer? I don't understand why you would need to grow these if you live in the ocean.

Well that didn't take very long at all.
13 Oct 2017 19:58 - +19
If humans evolved from monkeys, how come the earth evolves around the sun? Take that atheists!
13 Oct 2017 17:59 - +14
Man this is really really good.
13 Oct 2017 20:01 - +10
It really makes you wonder what we'll look like millions of years from now.
13 Oct 2017 21:43 - +5
So where did those "first" objects come from?
13 Oct 2017 20:47 - +5
This gif makes me feel more connected with all the other animals on earth.

Fascinating how reptiles made the evolutionary jump to mammals. Currently googling some pretty interesting looking creatures.
13 Oct 2017 21:04 - +4
I can't honestly say I that I didn't expect a "send nudes" at the end there
13 Oct 2017 20:43 - +4
But if we evolved from from single-celled organisms, THEN WHY IS THERE STILL SINGLE-CELLED ORGANISMS?
13 Oct 2017 20:54 - +4
Ain’t God done it? The bahble say he done it.
13 Oct 2017 21:44 - +3
This is pretty cool but I wish there were less iterations included in the micro-organism stage and more iterations in the rat -> monkey stage.
13 Oct 2017 21:28 - +3
How did it start though? Before the first thing split into two. Where did the first thing come from? Don't get me wrong, I love a good story. Lets start at the beginning then shall we?
13 Oct 2017 19:55 - +3
Right here, Right now!!!

Go on, how many of you waited just to see Dickbutt at the end?

Cosmos and all I can think about is you

Sorry, I don't have time to watch a gif for a billion years.

Where to next?

I feel like I don't know the theory of Evolution all that well, despite being an advocate for scientific advancement (despite growing up in the church and disbelieving in a lot of this stuff for the first 17 years of my life). What causes these changes and adaptations? Is it pure luck that their genes mutated to adapt to an environment, or is DNA actively able to be altered, unconsciously, through some hidden mechanism, to force the change in the next generation? I just find it so hard to understand how a worm can become a fish-like worm simply by procreating a million times, then a fish a billion times after that. What impresses this change upon the DNA?
13 Oct 2017 20:09 - +3
Are you not going to cite the source?
13 Oct 2017 21:54 - +3
Pause it early on when it looks like a tadpole or a fish or whatever and realize that you're descended from that. Your great great great great great (x100,000) grandmother was an actual goddamn fish.

But no one even understands how evolution could work! /s

Source this OP, it's from cosmos, they did a version of it on the new ones with NDT and Sagan had it in his as well.

This animation is 40 years old now, it probably needs to be updated.
13 Oct 2017 22:13 - +2
So that means that there was 1 human that was the first conscious human ever. Right?
13 Oct 2017 22:27 - +2
Wow, this animation is amazing! The transitions are so smooth.

What? No dickbutt! Thats what surprised me the most.
13 Oct 2017 21:06 - +2
Do Darwin's theories suggest all life deviates off a common evolutionary thread? Like every organism is just another stop on one long continuum? edit: grammar
13 Oct 2017 23:08 - +2
Can anyone ELI5 how complex subsystems would have evolved? Esepecially when individual parts need precise communication with one another. (e.g. digestive system) and how would these eventually wire themselves into something like the brain....
13 Oct 2017 21:18 - +2
I was kind of low key hoping for a dickbutt at the end of that.

Nice try sheeple... we all know we were created from sand by God. Duhhhhh
