Yeah nah, changes like that don’t happen in 500 years, or 1000, or 50,000 years. I call BS
@TriangleTesticles, Unless we started selectively breeding for smaller and smaller toes, then yeah, this kind of thing can’t happen in that short of a time.
Toes serve a purpose too, they’re not vestigial.
@Weird Porn Stash, I say we start selectively breeding for white people with just yellow hair and blue eyes...WHOS WITH ME!
I've had my ankle broken and a Phillips head screw driver go straight through my power my finger but I'm going to make it damn difficult lol
@unknownjanitor, hey, that’s me. Does this mean death by snu snu?
@Weird Porn Stash, yeah I was thinking don't we use our toes for something minor? Such as, you know, fvcking balance.
@unknownjanitor, yeah let’s d— Hey wait a minute! You almost had me there
@TriangleTesticles, this is what happens when you extrapolate data without consideration for context
@TriangleTesticles, besides , we run and control our angle with our toes, then ankles. Metatarsals are somewhere. Wtf.
@TriangleTesticles, it doesn't say anywhere that it's to do with evolution. Could be whoever is ruling the world hates toes and has them all chopped off at birth. I hate feet but even that's too far for me
@TriangleTesticles, we are now removed from natural selection anyway. That change would only happen over thousands of years if it served a practical survival purpose
I hate feet but keep the toes. Those are creepy.
Rob Liefeld: goooodgoood
When our ears eventually get pulled around to our face we can blame Covid-19 masks. Or Carol Baskin....
@Ducbil, Fvcking bitch
How would we keep our balance and why hasn’t this happened in the thousands of years humans have been around?
@troubled panda, because it's a lie with no evidence to back their speculation :D Urinalism at its finest
@troubled panda, To be fair (not that I'm supporting this dumb ass article), but not all generic mutations lead to evolutionary advantage. Some are just dumb luck. One organism in a species develops a mutation, and for some reason they mate WAY more then any other individual in it's species (maybe it's just a player?) And succinctly cements that mutation as part of that species now; even though it has no advantage in the wild (and for the point of this argument let's say that this mutation wasn't visual so it had no impact on the organism attracting mates). Sometimes nature just be up to fvckery like that.
@unknownjanitor, the ocean sunfish is a shining example of this
One giant toe requires one giant toe nail
@Your Darkest Secret,
@mycatsanahole, like horses
This is what we call “click bait”
So what's the scientific basis for this? Are children now demonstrating signs of receding toes or fingers? Is the crazy and absurd theory of we're going to experience a Water World level of global warming and we'll need flippers the cause for speculation? Goddammit click baits, stop twisting science so you can make money!
@that1german, its because we wear shoes
@dj evolve fan club, that makes no sense. We've been wearing clothing for thousands of years and we still have body hair. Unless our shoes are altering our genetic structures, this happening is very improbable
@that1german, look it up. I didn't make it up. Btw we used to be hairier too
