reverse evolution theory

The theory that everything evolved from an ancient giraffe
  (+2)

In the beginning, there was only an ancient giraffe.

Then it evolved. The snakes lost their feet and belly, and then some of them moved to water, where they further evolved into fish and then sharks. The frogs evolved from a flat but wide version of primitive giraffes, leaving dry land and eventually beginning their lives in shallow waters.

And the humans lost their long neck and hard hoofs, although, the spots on their hair in some cases do return at a late stage in life.

The apes evolved from humans, losing much of their brains, but retaining many of the other features that we still have. So essentially, apes are actually human descendants, at an advanced stage of decay.

       What about the cranial accessory nerve then?

       So, presumably, sedimentary rocks were deposited from below rather than (as is often naively assumed) above, and have been gradually enriched in unstable isotopes over time?

       [marked-for-deletion] theory.

       Is this some kind of variation on "turtles all the way down"?

       That's not a reverse evolution theory - you even say in it "Then it evolved" - so that's evolution, not reverse evolution.   

       A reverse evolution theory would state that life one day suddenly started with an immediate vast radiation of all the possible known species and their permutations, after which, gradually some died out due to unsuitability or outcompeting or tasting too nice. Then there were fewer, but those that were left had it good. Then those started to squabble and soon there were a smaller diversity. This de- speciation continues throughout the duration of life on a planet until there's one final winner. Then it starves.

       What if it's autotrophic?

       Then it starves later.
