What you suggest would take a lot more time than 1000 years.
You'd have to give up a lot of the human abilities that you value if your body were to adapt to be able to fly or breathe under water.
A few years ago there was a girl in the U.S., about 16, who was the best rock climber without equipment in the world, better even than any man. Her family had been missionaries in Africa, and when she was about three years old her parents gave her a pet monkey. She wanted to be just like the monkey and followed it as it climbed trees. If you looked at her you at first wouldn't think she was any different than any other cute teenage girl, but her arms were actually extraordinarily long for her height, her body fat content was unusually low, and she had amazingly long fingers. She could do chin-ups with one finger of each hand. This is adaptation by a living creature.
Please Mr Stupid may i have a link to some of this wonderful information that you are telling us is "real", I am sorry for being so distrusting of someone who "claims" to believe that Evolution is real and yet does not understand it one little bit.
I think you've ascribed more homogeneity to the Republican party than actually exists. My impression is that there are different factions with fairly different goals, but happen to align in certain ways.
I think that you have just defined "any" political party on the planet, in just the same way that you have defined any single human on the planet, we are all unique in every possible way, we just "align" ourselves to different movement or perspectives by how we feel, what we believe etc etc - not that there is anything wrong with that in anty way - it is a totally natural thing to happen that has been witnessed within many different groups of animals beyond humans before.
There are libertarians who vote Republican because the Republican party "supposedly" (I say supposedly, because they support programs like the military and Homeland Security, which is far more expensive than most of the social programs they want to cut.) is for smaller government, and who have no major conflict with the religious agenda of the fundamentalist Christians.
Maybe this one has more to do with the average persons fear of the unknown and the fear of attack - I have the same issue with our government reducing the size of our military as well, this issue does not just affect the "right-leaning" people (like me, which is a long way left of the American right), but affects everyone as everyone needs to feel that their country is going to protect them.
There are also fundamentalist Christians who are fairly socially liberal, but for whom moral issues like abortion and the death penalty trump any other aspects of the party line that they may disagree with.
Hence my point with people voting God into power, these idiots might listen to scientists and let them run the show.......... unless it conflicts with an ancient collection of fairy-tales, then they become hardened "Christians" and suddenly ignore scientists, doctors and nurses - idiots.
I'm sure there are also pro-corporation folks who vote Republican, because the Republican party tends to decrease progressive taxes (like income tax) in favor of regressive taxes, and who could care less about social programs, because they're shelling out money for the best private healthcare and private schools for their kids anyway.
I have no doubt there are, I am generally a "Tory" voter because they offer me what I want, they protect the things that I believe are worth protecting and they fight the things that I dislike...... generally..... no one is without fault and they will (if they have not already done so) commit good money to bad decisions, or given up on a fight that they should still be fighting, or even fighting a fight they should never have taken up.
We have all seen politicians make bad decisions, most of which we don't care about, many are short-lived. The ones that we do care about are the ones that continue to affect us negatively for year or even generations, and those that affect our own country in ways that can never be changed.
Some people see these as small decisions often because they don't see how things are going to change because they are "small" decisions, some don't even see them mounting up into huge problems including the many that we face in western economies.
In my country the "Labour Party" who were in power for thirteen (yes 13) years spent more money than the country was making even though we were in "boon" times, that is sadly moronic and has pushed our economy into the red in a very big way.
Fortunately we have had a "coalition" government for the last 18-months that has managed to get going straight away (unlike our European counterparts), our spending is being reduced right now, the plan of deficit reduction is actually working - although this could easily stop if the worlds western economies continue to go downhill as they currently are, if the US or European economies worsen then we will likely be sucked down the plug-hole with them, which I why I want to see the Republicans loose the next election in a huge way, this will leave the Obama administration to actually run the country with a heavy majority.
A solid government can make a huge difference to a country, this has been shown by our own, even though it is constructed of 2 very different political parties that are "working together for the good of the country" unlike the Europeans, who have so many opinions and problems and in-fighting of their own that it takes an age for anything to happen. That is just one of the many reasons why I am very happy not to be part of the Euro.
I fail to see what an uncited anecdote with a sample size of 1 demonstrates anything.
Maybe you don't ascribe to the principles of the scientific method, but you should be aware that many of the people here do, and they will dismiss your theories as b.s. if you don't provide at least some credible evidence of your theory.
Thanks for me having to not bother typing that all over again.
