Rooting for Human Evolution

first_imgCan you squeeze human blood out of a turnip?  A new story floating around for how humans began their long divergence away from apes in the jungle was that they developed a taste for roots.  EurekAlert reported a story coming out of U of Minnesota: “About five to seven million years ago, when the lineage of humans and chimpanzees split, edible root plants similar to rutabagas and turnips may have been one of the reasons.”  A line of apes found fleshy roots attractive as a supplement to meat and fruits.  They had to move out into the savannah to get more of them.  For evidence, the evolutionists point to larger jaws of early humans needed for chewing the tough roots.Sorry, chimps were already out there, too (see 09/01/2005 story).  They didn’t evolve into anything like us.  Try again, and this time, let’s see some equations (see 08/22/2005 and 08/19/2005 entries) with the fables.(Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img
