Does atheist evolution make sense?
A person who support the theory of the big bang evolution I have a question for you.

Q; The food chain makes little sense evolution wise, humans are at the top of the food chain by your logic there should be an higher organism in the food chain than humans,

I'm not looking for a serious debate I just want someone to answer this question I've been asking myself.

Firstly, humans are not necessarily at the 'top of the food chain.' Maybe on a special level, but not on an individual level, a human is far from likely to win a fight with a brown bear, or a great white shark, etc. It is not our physice that makes us the top on a special level, it is our intellect:

Evolution is the most evidenced theory in science, the Theory Of Evolution has more evidence behind it than the Theory Of Gravity. Due to the fact that there are numerous accounts of transformations over time of different species into different organisms depending on where they are, such as the Pneumodesmus, Also, short-term evolution can also be observed over the course of a human lifetime, such as when the Industrial Revolution took over Britain in the late 18th and 19th centuries, the pollution made everything darker and grayer, due to pollution, the species of moth that presides in Britan was usually lightly colored, but because of the change in the landscape, the whiter moths had worse of a chance of surviving than the darker ones, meaning that more dark ones were able to survive and thus produce more offspring than the lighter colored ones. Meaning that dark ones came to be more common, wheras half a century earlier the majority were white.

The same issue applies to humans, the first recognizable human-like species was Australopithecus, which emerged around 4,000,000 years ago. There has been evidence that they showed cruse problem-solving and logic skills, and were the first known species to be proven to have made tools. They began to grow bigger brains over time (about 1,000 millimetres compared to the average 1,400 size for humans) And it has been hypothasized that the reason why their brain size grew was due to the fact that the more logic and problem solving skills a male had, the better chance a female would have of mating with him (and vice-versa) This merging of intellect between two mates caused the vastness of human intellect to grow and grow along with their brains.

The next step up in evolution was the species of Homo Erectus, which emerged around 2 million years ago, and is by far the longest living species of our genome. They have been observed to be the first species to have cultivated fire (long before humans) around 1, 500, 000 years ago. Their brains grew to 1,200 millimeters and are predicted to have been the first species to have spoken complex language, they are also the first species that substantially show signs of modern human features. (though that view is subjective) They are also the first specie predicted to have been able to walk and run long distances.

Then, 300,000 to 200,000 years ago, the first Homo Sapiens (humans) appear in its modern form with their 1,4000 centimeter brain. They have been shown to have wiped out homo erectus, and other sub-species (such as neanderthals) although peices of both still live on in our DNA (because our genes were close enough that we could inter-breed.) Because of our intellect, as well as the ability to walk upright, we were able to use our intellect to slowly advance technology to the modern day.

If you have anything else to say, please let me know in the next round or private message me.
