Evoloution has made mistakes, and granted so has the course of human interruption in a vast array of organisms on planet earth. This is quite clear, and one can see human involvement simply by looking at our beloved dogs... These aren't natures plan as they weren't naturally occurring, but had involvement by humans. However, nature still has a control over how each part of the organism functions to facilitate life. This is found in the DNA. And as I've said earlier we simply don't have time to go over all of this in a post.

A lot of show people crop ears because their dogs don't have the "perfect pit ears" i.e. rose ears.
so all they are doing is hiding faults so their dogs will win

Right, I see where I used a comparison between humans and dogs...

So far all I've heard is personal attacks on my character."you don't know what you're talking about" without any rebuttal that I could put to a scientific explanation.
