  • I absolutely agree!!!

    I believe that if humans are to evolve then we have to have disabilities so we can understand each other well. Also a lot of people that have disabilities have their rights taken away at school or at other public places. People need to treat people with disabilities more respect.

  • Yes, of course!

    First of all, any change within a species is part of evolution. Something doesn't have to be positive to be a part of evolution. Second of all, many things that are traditionally defined as "disabilities" aren't necessarily negative. Some are, of course, but try asking a person with a disability what they think. An autistic person, for example.

  • Yes of course they can,

    Many disabilities may seem impractical now, but only continue to exist because of the big success they had prehistorically. Such as ADHD, which symptoms include hyper activity, inattentiveness, and impulsiveness.

    People with ADHD were seen as the ideal mates, since they had the most advanced fight-or-flight responses. Their impulsiveness allowed them to react quickly when being exposed to danger, and their short attention span and distraction, made them better at scanning their surroundings for danger. And so the gene was passed on immensely.

    That is the case with most modern day disorders, many of them have evolutionary roots that can aid us with establishing conclusions about human nature.

  • Yes it can spur new innovations

    If a being has a disadvantage then it must adapt to compensate for it. In that process it may develop abilities that open up other avenues for them that those of its species that aren't disabled won't notice because they have no need to develop alternative abilities. Humans today are descendants of disabled humans considering that there are things are ancestors could do that we can't now, particularly the replacement of instinct with reason. If your instincts work perfectly fine you have no incentive to develop reason. The development of reason can be explained by a reaction to disabilities that involved a reduction in instinct.

  • No, it isn't beneficial to the species as a whole.

    Evolution is based upon the idea that successful traits are passed down, while ones that prove to be less useful are not. In this case, I do not believe that any sort of disability can be beneficial towards evolution. In nature, animals that are disabled with traits like deformities are usually the first to be eaten. And being eaten in no way contributes to the success of the species. Disabilities are called so for a reason; the person affected is not able to function at 100% capacity.

  • People who say yes?

    Wow you people are so stupid. 'we evolved from monkeys' the people who say yes to this debate are saying this. A super human called god created us. I'm just wowed. Boo! At least some people have common sense. That is my opinion. A am a believer in god. Sincerely, JJaka99.
