Questions about giraffe evolution


I like giraffes.

So, I’ve just spent a bit of time reading tens of paragraphs and thousands of words on giraffe evolution.

Why in the world would anyone do that especially on a Saturday night, you say?

I know. But, I did it because I have a burning question.

How did the giraffe evolve a long neck?

Think About the Children

You can do it!

The 2 reasons for the giraffe evolving its long neck seem to be:

  1. There was no food on the ground but there was food in the trees
  2. It couldn’t compete with the other animals for the food on the ground but there was food in the trees

With all the thinking put into the idea of giraffe evolution, I’m left wondering… has no one stopped to consider how in the world the giraffe-ancestor species could have survived if there was no food for it to eat?

  1. If there was no food on the ground for the giraffe ancestor to eat, how did the species survive long enough to evolve a long neck to reach the food in the trees?
  2. If the giraffe ancestor couldn’t compete with the other animals for the food on the ground, again, how did the species survive long enough to evolve a long neck to reach the food in the trees?

Seems pretty basic to me. Without food animals die. Seems to me the giraffe-ancestor species would have died out and we wouldn’t have giraffes today.

Is evolution the reason we have bullies today?

Is evolution the reason we have bullies today?

And, just to be thorough because someone might come along and suggest the giraffe ancestor had a food source while it was evolving its long neck:

  1. If there was a food source, on the ground or otherwise, why did the giraffe have to evolve a long neck to reach the food in the trees in the first place?

By the way, evolutionists have been trying to figure out giraffe evolution since Darwin’s day. Ask yourself why they never have.
