    This is retarded beyond belief. What would be the point of speech, bipedal balance, thick and developed feet, body hair etc if we were supposed to live underwater?

      Speech is still possible through evolution.

      Speech still is useful? Bipedal: have you seen monkeys and apes walking on deep water? https://youtu.be/vcbD71n-usQ
      They walk straight up if the water is shallow enough for them to walk but not deep enough to cover them entirely. Thick feet same as above, also lots of barnacles/broken shells in rocky areas, Body hair we have very little compared to any other primate the same way that seals and cetaceans have very little hair compared to terrestrial mammals. Not that I think it is correct but the aquatoc ape hypothesis use most of your points as argument for it.

    I think humans have definitely adapted to take advantage of underwater resources to some degree, but not to the level this poster is suggesting

      I agree, especially the finger tips wrinkling up.

      Im not sugesting that and i dont even belive on the aquatic ape theory but u think it would be cool if human could evolve to rule the seas in the same way cetaceans did

        Why? The ocean is shit. There is a reason why your ancestors left it.

                >Consider the subtleness of the sea; how its most dreaded creatures glide under water, unapparent for the most part, and treacherously hidden beneath the loveliest tints of azure. Consider also the devilish brilliance and beauty of many of its most remorseless tribes, as the dainty embellished shape of many species of sharks. Consider, once more, the universal cannibalism of the sea; all whose creatures prey upon each other, carrying on eternal war since the world began.

                >Consider all this; and then turn to the green, gentle, and most docile earth; consider them both, the sea and the land; and do you not find a strange analogy to something in yourself? For as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all the horrors of the half-known life. God keep thee! Push not off from that isle, thou canst never return!”

                You're a small fish that's all bones and no meat even in large quantities, even not good as a decoration. You're banking on humans leaving you be and getting rid of your predaotrs.

      Yeah, probably collecting food in shallow waters. I have the impression that it is much easier to find food on the beaches than in the jungle based on my own experience. Plenty of mollusks crustaceans and fishes, some seaweed as well. Snails and shellfish are easy to collect since they don’t move much. Aquatic crustaceans and some fishes often are stuck in the low tide in temporary pools and also the crabs that roam outside water and sea bird nests. You can steal the eggs and kill the young/adults who come defend it relatively easy.

    >In 1942 the German pathologist Max Westenhöfer (1871–1957) discussed various human characteristics (hairlessness, subcutaneous fat, the regression of the olfactory organ, webbed fingers, direction of the body hair etc.) that could have derived from an aquatic past, quoting several other authors who had made similar speculations. >As he did not believe human beings were apes, he believed this might have been during the Cretaceous, contrary to what is possible given the geologic and evolutionary biology evidence available at the time.

      >direction of the body hair
      Isn't it exactly the same as most mammals where it grows towards the extremities?

    Why?
    I honestly have a very hard time trying to imagine any sort of evolutionary pressure or even conscious decision by humans that would lead us directly away from adaptations that have made us absolutely OP on the entire planet.
    Would you really want to trade your hands with opposable thumbs for flippers when you can use those hands to build devices that allows you to be temporarily part of the sea?

      To make the super obese feel better about themselves until they find out that they're absolutely shit compared to actual athletic individuals in the water as well as land.

    Unfortunately for black hamplanets that obviously made that retardgraphic, our bodies cannot handle the salt for long periods. We would have to drastically alter our skin and kidney cells, and probably a huge list of other things. Over millions of years, could we adapt? Possibly.
