Anyone ever heard of aquatic ape hypothisis?jynxe -
Its an idea that there's some ancestor of human that more or less started to go the way of the whale, becoming aquatic rather then terestrial and then something /else/ made us stop
there was a chance we could have been mermaids ya'll evolution why
If I remember correctly, aquatic ape theory has been wideky disproven on a number of bases. But I do remember how absolutely enchanted I was with the idea first time I'd heard it in an uncontested fashion. The idea of a society of water people is still so captivating and has definately fueled a bit of my own inspiration (esp as of late).
woah that's depressing
