The Aquatic Ape Hypothesis is the outlandish story of our origins that refuses to go away despite the objections and ignorance of most mainstream academics. Could man really have been aquatic once?
Of the many fields of science which I am in agreement with there are a few questionable things which always seem to take the forefront of the political and social infrastructure. Such controversies have arisen throughout the pages of history which...
For too long we have subscribed to Darwin's deeply flawed Theory of Evolution, so much so that it has become akin to religious dogma. To discover our origins, we need to start over from scratch.
