I never had wisdom teeth, either.
I have a tiny partial one on my lower left, but it's only the size of a split pea.
The others never developed at all.
Nah, they're just evolving and leaving us all behind. :)
Mine was painless. no swelling, healed quick. Same at first though. Soups and the like. :/
Wisdom teeth: fixed with a medical procedure(we no longer need to chew our food as much or have as many teeth to eat). I had three removed, one was never even going to erupt and had to be pried from my skull with special pliers.
Years and years ago, your appendix burst, you died, and evolution favors larger appendixes, because they're less likely to burst. Unfortunately this also means the appendix, even if it's a time bomb for some of us(it gathers bacteria in the gut), it'll be around for a long time--if evolution favored smaller appendixes, it might go away, because we really don't need it any more now that most of our food gets cooked to remove bacteria. But larger appendixes are still less likely to cause problems, so it lives on. For now.
I am also now stuck with "Appendix love you long time." in my head.
Of course the germs mutated! Satan guided them to do so! Duh! :P
True... doesn't even have the stones to read all the responses.
What adherents of the Abrahamic religions have a hard time grasping is cosmological, geological and evolutionary time scales. This is not surprising, given the 6000-year time-frame for biblically-derived time scales.
"The theory of evolution by natural selection". Evolution is a fact. It's natural selection that's a theory . . . but it's so overwhelmingly confirmed by evidence, that there's little doubt that it is the actual mechanism of evolution.
Evolution has had 3.5 billion years to produce the variety of life we see on Earth. Why single out the nose? What about the ears or eyes? Just because you haven't tried to understand evolution doesn't mean it's not true.
Genetics, when considered in context of millions or even billions of years, is not a difficult concept to grasp. Instead of taking the lazy way out, you should try to fill the voids of your ignorance with the information freely available on the Internet.
Your position seems to be: "I don't want to spend the effort to learn about the world I live in. Therefore, God did it."
Our understanding is far from complete. We know there's much we don't understand. Certainty is reserved for religion. Who needs facts when you can skate by on authority?
As Bertrand Russell said, "In the modern world, the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt."
