Do we really need 5 fingers?
Our hands have 5 fingers, and we use them every day in our daily lives. But, do we really need 5 fingers to be able to use them? Think about it, maybe we need less fingers, arranged in a different way in our hands. Or do we need more fingers...
If we didn't need 5(10) fingers, we wouldn't have evolved to have them and/or we would be gradually losing them if we didn't need them, like with our "pinky" toes.
People have lost fingers and toes in accidents and have gone on to live meaningful lives. Some people are even born without hands and feet.
In all honesty when it comes to "needs" we basically have 5 of them.
1. Air 2.Water 3.Food 4. Shelter 5. Clothing (It's the law in most places)
This assumes you have the other bodily parts to sustain life such as a heart, kidney, lungs, brain...etc
I agree with Zeikiiro. There are lots of animals with less then 5 fingers. We do have 10 fingers because we needed all five of them to survive. It's a evolutionary question.
No, we don't need them because as dashing pointed out, if we lost them in some way, we'd learn to adapt and do the things we do now only it would be in a different way.
Si do you think you, sheilamyers, will be able to live without fingers, or with less fingers?
It would take some time to adjust to new ways of doing things, but yes I'd be able to live without fingers.
