Human Evolution

In Weird on 05/03/2010 at 9:49 am

Thankfully, the picture shown below is a very discredited theory, but I’ve always thought human evolution is interesting.

“This drawing uses Lamarckian evolution theory to predict  the result of future human evolution. Lamarck’s discredited theory proposed that living things evolved out of necessity. So, this future human exhibits features accordingly.

This drawing is utterly inconsistent with present-day, Darwinian evolution theory. Instead of making predictions based on strident presumptive logic, modern evolution theory recognizes the power of unpredictable environmental circumstances that have the potential to produce unexpected results.

Interpretation: There is no reason to suspect future humans will be much different from us.”
