Even the lowly bacterium will divide and multiply until all the foodstuff is consumed, when they all die. All animals will do their best to ensure their own progeny's survival over all other considerations.

We are more animal than we let on. Our western clothing is nothing natural. It is our custom. The sad thing is we are smart enough to change our ways, but like always, we will wait until environmental pressure make us change our ways.

If we were space folks screwing with the apes, then I can see no reason for the long and mysterious evolution from ape to human. The fossil evidence clearly shows a progression from very primitive hominid through brain size increases to us.

Evolution is a concept not physical things or even action. You can't prove evolution because it doesn't truly exist.

What you are referencing is natural selection through time mingled with survival.

====================================

Funny, that happens to be what evolution basically is.

On this thread, we are talking about hypothesis how the naked, sweating, upright ape came to be.

If you want to argue against evolution there are topics that address that argument. Do a search.

Aquatic apes do still exist. There is a small village on the coast of Japan. In times reaching back beyond memory women have been nude diving into cold waters. They harvest lobsters, crabs, abalone, sea urchins, and oysters. It is as simple as that.

The women (Ama) are more successful at this diving for their greater subcutaneous fat. They dive great depths in frigid water.

There is absolutely no reason to think a nude Australopithecus could not have been doing exactly the same thing.

More news in the offing for the swimmer in us. As described in a recent Smithsonian article, the human survivors who survived the great die off 70,000 years ago lived in coastline caves in southern Africa. Found were jewelry, fine specialized tools, ochre, and lots of bivalve leftovers. Yes, they were getting plenty of soft protein from the sea. The caves had been inhabited from 146,000 years ago to 55,000 years ago. That was plenty of time for not only our brain to make that last leap to human, but our bodies too. We became ebony shiny demigods. It must have been a fine existence.

The fact they were eating soft protein reminds me I haven't used that as yet another point for the water loving apes. Shrinkage of tooth allowed enlargement of the brain, as less force was needed for sustenance. What is softer than crab, urchin eggs, and oysters?

Fish is a massive source of omega 3&6 which is needed to develop a good brain and guess what we have a good brain so i think the theory is true. and i once read in a book in a hospital reception of people that lived on the east coast of South Africa i think which suddenly disappeared about 500 years ago and they ate fish. i am am not certain about the facts because i read it a looooong time ago, but i bet you will find some article on the web about them. they are called the "Strand lopers" which are Africans for Beach Walking people.

I live in South Africa and i would really like if this is proven because it would be nice to know that we developed our brains in my country.
