If water is tasteless and air is tasteless then why doesn't air taste like water?

Let's leave Vorlon out of this for now.  Poor guy is still recovering.

And by "recovering" you mean he's going back for seconds.
"Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape- like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered."

Hmmmmm.

Or inversely why doesn't water taste like air?

What an astoundingly stupid question.

Really? There should be fines for such stupid questions. 

Our evolution  for one thing, but the biggest factor is the molecular structure of TWO DIFFERENT molecules. Just like an orange isn't going to taste like paint. 

FYI snakes taste the air with their tongues.

Pool,

You are mistaking your own false perception of what "taste" means because you mistake "flavor" as being the same thing as evolutionary senses.

Air and water most CERTAINLY have a taste dumbass. Some species of  life don't have noses and use their tongues to taste, or others have very high sensitivity to the differences in molecular structure in ANYTHING. Both your sense of taste and smell evolved to detect differences in the structures of molecules. 

If you didn't evolve to have a sense of taste you would drink anything even if it killed you.

Let me take you through simple middle school biology here pool.

Everything is made up of atoms.

Those atoms build up to make molecules.

Those molecules have different structures based upon what thing we are talking about.

Air and water are different just like salt and pepper will feel different to us. Just like even hot and cold feel different. Our bodies interact with the molecular structures around us. 

Even with "hot" and "cold". Boiling water is still a result of atoms and molecules and energy transfer. Hot days and hot air is also the same thing. Ice is a result of the state of a molecular structure under certain conditions. Cold air also the same. 

Atoms
Molecules
Conditions
Interactions

Not that complicated.

H is the atom
O is the atom

H2O TWO Hydrogen atoms and 1 oxygen atom. FUCK am I dyslexic. 

Your sense of taste and falsely thinking air and water have no taste is you literal lack of understanding of evolution. it is just like stupidly thinking that some blind species with no eyes cant see or those with poor eyesight cant make their way around.

Bats use echo location as a way to SEE. Just like humans use RAIDAR to see aircraft hundreds of miles away out of view.

Forgive me guys, I really do suffer from both ADD and transpose my words and thoughts.

I promise everyone if I ever make it big, I WILL relegate proof reading to someone who knows what the fuck they are doing.
