Problem with Darwin’s Theory of Evolution ?

We have all studied that all the organisms on the earth as we see them are here because of the very basic principle of Charles Darwin which states that

All organisms are naturally selected by nature and there are always variations in a species which helps in exhibiting variations in traits and eventually lead to a stable species.

But the thing that’s bugging my brain is that,this theory explains why we start developing new characters both physically and chemically but it does not tell us what happened to the ones which did not do any good nor harm to us.

For ex. Emotions like laughter, in what way did they even have to be selected? Assuming that they did develop somehow, then why did the traits which DO NOT express emotions like happiness have to disappear.

We all know that,everyone today knows what happiness exactly is right? Some people would just say that, we would just start developing what it is.If you think that is the answer,then please tell me why there is “fear”.We don’t have to know or someone tell how fear is and what it feels like and even if we did try to teach them,it won’t do anything good till they actually experience it!

Another answer that people might put forward is that,probably,there is no traits associated and we just start developing from childhood.The proof for this statement being that,we do not know what’s fear as a new born.

Well,if that was the case,then why in hell don’t fungi or other microscopic plants develop during their early stages? If you did say that their ancestors did not express any emotions which could be passed on.Then my question to you is,since we all originate from the same single single cell which formed first on the planet,how did we end up being so lucky and the plants not ?

Another such comparison can be made is why did we start looking hair on our body and the other human related apes did not.

Many such questions can be raised.Probably,there already exists an answer to this.But as far as my knowledge which i gained from school is concerned,this is how far i can take it to.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Why is the World so Competitive ?

India is probably the only place i know people where people “STUDY” day and night and slog all their young hours for getting through in competitive exams.There is competition everywhere, from music,sports,painting and the worst part of it is that people don’t just see   how competition is eating up all their lives.

My Dad is probably the most competitive out of all the people i know, he keeps telling me that,”How will people judge you if you don’t get marks,how will you show your knowledge.” and much more.Probably,that’s the same thing that almost all of the Dad’s of India would be doing at this point of time.And the petty students who can barely think anything apart from drilling their minds, find it quite encouraging and motivating to realize their dream of getting into the so-called best universities of India and the world.The problem here is that,students do not even find anything that they are doing interesting and they completely loose themselves without even any interest in the subject.I was recently reading an article on an “IITJEE Topper”, he said that he was always working hard towards his goal and was  always with books,even after he cracked the exam he was preparing for other competitve exams and IPhO.

Now, how stupid do you think that is? A person who hardy has any interest in the subject,he takes up Computer Science Engineering,after going to “International Physics Olympiad” (WTF? Do you even like Physics?) and not to forgot who has been studying that subject for nearly 4 years! does not even choose “Physics” as his main subject.

This is certainly a clear indication that people of my age are looking for so much fame and status at such and young age and achieve stuff which they are not even interested.

The fact that bothers me the most is that its just PURE and ONLY hardword that drives them and not Obssession towards the subject which is just another synonym of hardwork for the uninterest freaks.

If any student of my age and like a few friends of mine,barely tend to stay free and this is not because they don’t want to but its because they are just too conscious of his other competitive friends would be doing, who might eventually get better “MARKS” in some dumb fucking exam.

ALL OF THIS JUST PISSES MY ASS OFF! I seriously would’t care about all this shit but the problem is that I’m forced to face all of this shit because of my competitive parents and  not to forget “Competitive Teachers” as well!

Infact,It’s not just India put the whole world is getting so competitive that people hardly ever enjoy what they are doing!

The best way out of all this mess is.

Do what you love to do and just try to make some money from it.Don’t care about others,follow your own path because it might be brighter and more fun that the used ones.

Is Partying Hard cool ?

Even though my brother doesn’t speak out loud on this,I have come to this conclusion from a few conversations of his.It is evident from that,that he feels that life without partying,hanging out with friends and so on is the only way to have fun…and of course…dancing.Well,i don’t have any objection towards dancing but i just don’t find it fun and i also don’t treat it as something that only indecent people do,he feels that i don’t dance because i think myself as a gentleman,which is certainly wrong! I love listening to music and the music on the dance floor gets really noisy and it’s not exactly fun to dance at.I enjoy softer music and it deserves as much attention and respect as the so-called “cool” and noisy music.

I used to like rock music but i lost almost all interest in it after listening and playing to pure music.

I don’t think he understands me on that and ever will.

To me music is an art and is enjoyed in my own sweet way,rather than showing off your enjoyment.Actually,that is quite true,people without enjoying music just pretend to enjoy it and dance hard just to flirt with girls..I hope my brother doesn’t fall into that category!

The same old lecture last night.

It has been hardly 3 days since my parents promised me that they won’t be pesturing me to study and like i had exactly told them that,it happened again.This is not the first time they promised and shattered it into pieces,if my calculations are right it would be certainly close to 50.

So,i normally don’t talk these lectures into account so seriously because i’m quite aware that i’ll have a “deja vu” soon.Like always the talk was on me,not taking any interest in “studies” and preparing for competitive exams.Well,that exactly isn’t true because i like learning and not studying for competitive exams.

I prefer learning math and enjoying simultaneous instead of forcefully drilling myself into doing so.On an average i spend about 6 hours a day out of my interest,but they insist on 12 hours or so… things are quite different from what they think they are because its more of the enjoying part of learning and less of the drilling part of studying which will ultimately be noted.

I do agree that i have to get into a good college but losing my interest by doing so is as much as waste of time as drilling is.

I’m currently..okay,not exactly preparing but learning which also helps in an exam called “Chennai Mathematical Institute” and this is also because i want to improve on math,because i know I’m quite weak at logical thinking and problem solving but its worth the try.

My dad was discouraging me all night saying that i don’t have a chance getting into it,(as usual.. discouraging) but i prefer learning which helps me progress even more than regressing just for some competitive exam.I’m saying this as the human brain grows only to a certain age and its my peak time to exploit that.

I wouldn’t mind dropping out for 1 year and learning more than preparing at this point of time.I did think of a plant to prepare for these competitive exams but i just can’t follow it because i’m currently obsessed with math at the moment :p

I’m being asked to prepare for BITSAT which i feel is easy but they keep telling me that,”If its easy for you,its easy for all”.The problem is that they don’t realize my intelligence (I’m not saying i’m extremely good) because they just look at marks and marks are probably the first thing at which i suck.

Sometimes,they do think i’m special but i guess they just have short term memory loss or something because that’s clearly evident from the lectures..
