      Hi @winnie13
      Good question. I think we have evolved to have organs because they help us live our life the way that suits us. You’re right that we could have evolved differently, but for whatever reason in the past, animals with organs survived better than animals without, so this is why we’ve ended up how we are.

      I hope this answers your question – let me know if you’d like more info, or tell me your opinion about it!!!
