Did the human hand evolve for fighting?

Post  Martijn (admin) on Fri Dec 21, 2012 12:46 am



Did the human hand evolve for fighting? A new study from the University of Utah suggests that the size and shape of the human hand may have evolved for fighting… with bare fists!

New evidence suggests it was not just dexterity that shaped the human hand, violence may have been involved also. The scientist claim that hands may have evolved through natural selection to form a punching fist:

“The role aggression has played in our evolution has not been adequately appreciated,” said Professor David Carrier, from the University of Utah.

That's interesting but I struggle to believe that we evolved from apes, because apes are still here. thinking

Dear Martijn,

I have read in William Benham's book that monkeys have fingers (apes may be included too) and hence have intellect but as their fingers are loose their brain is loose within. I am not using the exact words but the meaning something like that. So monkeys and other similar animals have intellect whereas all the other animals have only nails. Fingers denote intelligence and that is why Monkeys intelligence is somewhat like a human being. Monkeys also fight like human beings.

Hi Sari,

Don't worry Sari, the concept of 'evolution' does not implicate that species are meant to extinct. By the way... Charles Darwin (who designed the present concept of evolution) believed in a 'God driven universe'.

Yes Pravin, without any doubt... monkey's can fight; but despite their strenght, they are not good in fighting at all: they only tend to bite and overwalk each other with only a bit of pulling/pushing. They don't 'punch' eachother

In this sense 'monkey fighting' has far less evolved than in humans.

The difference between apes & humans depends upon on " space, time & identity'.
When monkeys evolved the 'time' was different and early; Intelligence was much less.

The evolution showed 'developed intelligence' specially revealed by the difference in the thumbs.
The primitives could fight & bicker small time; while as intelligence developed it turned different/sharper in action.
