dennis westler Posted almost 3 years ago Why evolution could never solve aging? Nothing's DNA structure remains unchanged for millions of years. Homo sapiens sapiens has probably not existed as a species for millions of years (I noted in another post that the average life of a mammal species is only one million years).. And we were not "made" to live in any specific environment. We arose as a species in the emerging savanahs of Africa, but obviously have experienced great success in colonizing vastly different environments. There are no goals for or purpose to evolution so the ideas ot it "chasing its tail" or "searching for the perfect organism" is meaningless. There is no perfection, and no species is static genetically. Even cockroaches or dragonflies, which have persisted as Genera for millions of years have not been spared the slow changes (and the birth and death of whole species) brought about through evolution.
