Honestly, none of those answers are satisfactory, in my opinion.

Answers:

1. Yes. Natural selection drives evolution. Since humans or a human-like species would be dominant in the environment, it was bound to evolve sooner or later.

2. Yes. The fittest survive, not the most complex.

3. Yes. We are fitter than extinct species.

4. Yes. Evolution is based on time. Every species on Earth has been evolving for the same period of time, hence we are all equally evolved. We are just suited to different environments.

5. Yes. Most mutations lead to a dead-end.

6. No. It cannot make us perfectly adapted. Only well adapted.

Is that to say you don't agree with any of them? What are your reasons?

Interesting reasoning. I see that you don't agree with the phrase 'perfectly adapted' but you think us having evolved was inevitable somehow.

My answers:
1 No
2 Yes
3 No
4 Yes
5 Yes
6 Yes

I disagree that humans are 'superior' or that there is a reason why we 'had to exist'.
