Pondering evolution

with 3 comments

Say, for example, one has children. You teach your children to take an hour out of their day to jump up against a wall and try to grip it with their hands. Then your children teach their children to do the same thing. And their children teach their children. And their children teach their children. And on and on. Would you eventually create a form of superhuman that can climb up walls? And would they, could they, for the sake of argument, be called homorobinsonians, please?

  3. It seems a small price to pay, really; a little eugenics never hurt anyone, did it?
