ASCIIpOrtal Has Been Released 83 83

maclizard writes "After much waiting, ASCIIpOrtal has now been released. Joe Larson, the man behind the game, has made sure to provide numerous mirrors so as to avoid the Slashdot effect that killed his site several months ago. An interview with Larson (part two here) is available as well."

I would argue the opposite. This is a positive discovery for evolution. That the appendix has a function makes more sense than being just being detrimental to health.

Evolution would select out useless body parts unless a sudden change in environment/diet is observed which makes the body part useless/redundant. Such as the rise of human civilisation.

But only a god/gods would create an organ that is useless and has been useless for many many generations of our ancestors. This discounts a sudden change in environment as an explanation, since it should only affect the first few generations.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
