The Siberian Fox
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domesticated_silver_fox
Turning foxes into dogs.

I've only seen 2 creationist responses to this:


" Smile You are arrogant. Smile"

"There is no such thing as 'evidence' you can't 'know' anything! "

Where ? On the wikipedia discussion page or some forum ?

More like taming them as we did wolves.

I think this study is an excellent example of how morality evolves in social species.And it's genetics. Aggressive cubs stay aggressive even if raised by a tame mother.Tame pups stay tame even if raised by an aggressive mother.

Last but not least I want one as a pet Big Grin

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!

When I went to tech school, those were the kind of cadavers we used to study anatomy.

I know, you wanted to know that.

My reason for being is to serve as a cat cushion. That is good enough for me. Wink

Fine if you did study them - lecture me this - what's their life span ?
If I get one as a pet will it live as long as a cat/dog ?

Naw it's OK. I actually did seek the guys out (my mother brings Mormon friends to the house every now and then) The general British population is more scientific.

Though Britain has produced two types of Atheist as opposed to the generally accepted type. There is the people too clever or too enlightened to believe in god, then there are the people who are atheists because they are ignorant of absolutely everything, except for WKD and where to get illegal tobacco anyway xD

I don't know actually. WKD is an 'alcopop' which is basically a cheap alcoholic slime that tastes like a supermarket brand soft drink.

We didn't study them specifically, just used them because their anatomy is similar to that of dogs and cats.

The truth of the matter is that they were used for their fur, and we got what was left. At least their little bodies went to something with a purpose. Sad
