I here that it claimed that any set of individuals in the current generation has a most recent common ancestor. For humans, a more recent version of this is referred to as a 'mitochondrial eve'. I'll grant you that everyone has a mother, and even a father if like/need this assumption. What other premise does one need?

All biological lifeforms on this planet have but two NEEDS! (1) Sustenance (2) A means by which to procreate. All else is superfluous to existence and especially speculating of those things. as interesting as they may be, but can never be explained. Mitochondrial, I'm down with that, but still, where did that first cell come from.

This is probably why we have so many epochal periods like midnight Jan 1, 1970.

yeah. The need to create something cool is ... something superimposed over sustenance, but not necesserily based on conscious processes (some basic mechanisms have been more then likely encoded into genome to naturally drive some beings to want to discover or create something cool. its based on some sort of need for brain activation).

Code:
ptrPred = ptr->left
parentPtr = ptr

while ptrPred has a right child
  parentPtr = ptrPred
  ptrPred = ptrPred->right
endwhile

ptr->data = ptrPred->data      //node to delete now has pred. value
ptr = ptrPred

I assume that Stars are the ultimate source of life. Where they do come from? Nowhere if you believe the Universe is infinite, eternal and has always existed. Supernova/e is not the "death" of a Star, it is the transformation of energy and the creation of life. Some religions believe in reincarnation and that we somehow return and create Stars in a circular process. No one really knows for sure.

matefkr: Where'd you get the idea for your education system? Smile From the "evil punk nerd"? Rolling Eyes Imagine if you wrote a book and it received mostly 1,000s of positive reviews but 100s of negative reviews that say "I haven't read book, BUT...". Wouldn't you get a little frustrated after a while and eventually say: READ THE FUCKING BOOK! before you judge it.

Well, I was wondering what the actual argument is.
Why would one think that
You and I must have a common ancestor?

Due to the overwhelming evidence for evolution in nature: plants, vegetation, animals, etc. Any 2 compatible species produce a similar one. Years ago, I used to crossbreed plants (fruits, tobacco, poppies): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d07aMTI-fNE

Real evidence for evolution: "The liger is a hybrid cross between a male lion (Panthera leo) and a tigress (Panthera tigris). Thus, it has parents with the same genus but of different species."

Ligers are the biggest cats on Earth. They can weigh up to 1,600 LBs!

uart, you can bring whatever premises you like into the argument - I will tell you which ones I reject/accept. I would just like to see an argument for the existence of a common ancestor.
BTW, you seems to have many interesting hobbies. Very Happy
