Well, because it doesn't look like it was their "unfitness" per se that made them extinct. It was a giant rock from space.
Human curiosity. Knowing about dinosaurs doesn't help us, but it sates the human urge to know what's true.<br />
Besides, it's no longer Darwin's theory. It's been improved upon many times, with group selection and the like.
I really do not see how the two relate however everything will die even the fittest.
To understand why they went extinct and to avoid a similar outcome.
Natural Selection and survival of the fittest are different. Social Darwinists were the bigger proponents of survival of the fittest,
Humans will go the way of the dinosaur too... especially with more anger and new weapons
everything will die its just different circumstances for everything. think about it if they didn't become extinct then humans might have not been able to inhabit the earth. they would eat them. lol Darwin's theory is outdated
The idea of survival of the fittest and natural selection is the idea of lengthy evolution as a species gradually adapts to the changing world over a very long period of time. Though we don't know what exactly killed dinosaurs, we know that it wasn't a lengthy thing, but rather a catastrophe within a short period of time (a meteor or what have you). They weren't able to adapt to something that immediate, so they were wiped out.<br />
But actually you can use that example and look at something like cockroaches. Some cockroaches evidently survived that calamity and continued to adapt over the entire evolution of the human race. So in this case, cockroaches were the "fittest".
You must be a girl. Guys don't need an explanation for how ******* cool dinosaurs are.
