We have so many idle genes .
If , for example , scientist manage to make a chicken have teeth by activating those genes responsible for making teeth grow , does it also mean that they can also make humans have wings by activating some idle genes ? if our ancestors could fly , this then means that we still keep those flying genes , and if some brilliant scientist manage to spot those genes then Redbull will go bankrupt :D
Donne please reply
1. chickens (and all birds for that matter) are directly descended from dinosaurs and, as such, whatever idle genes they've inherited from their ancestors are right there, just below the surface. in humans, even if we had an ancestor that was capable of flying, that ancestor would be so far in the past that it wouldn't be a matter of simply turning on an idle gene like it is with chicken teeth.
2. humans don't have an ancestor that was capable of flying. the branch that includes us never had an animal that was capable of flight.
3. there's a huge difference between getting chicken to grow teeth and getting humans to undergo the radical morphological changes that would be required in order for us to fly. even if we did have an ancestor that flew, and even if it were a simple matter of flipping a "switch" like it is with chicken teeth, there's no question that the resulting animal wouldn't look much like a human anymore.
Yeah was trying not to leave any spoilers. lol
I thought there was gonna be a lot more horror, blood, and guts in it. Was actually quite refreshing for a sci fi/horror flick.
