According to the Aquatic Ape Theory, mankind is a marine mammal. We evolved in the inland seas of East Africa 200,000 years ago. We have partially webbed hands & feet, blubber, nearsighted eyes (for seeing underwater), saltwater tears, saltwater sweat, echolocation, no fur, and babies that instinctively know how to swim. These are characteristics that whales, dolphins, manatees, seals, and walruses have also. That's because they're marine mammals as well. Our fat bodies were meant to float around in water. Our soft feet were meant to walk on sandy beaches. Our warm skin was meant to lounge in tropical, humid weather. Early human remains like Lucy, Selam, Omo 1, and Omo 2 were found in places that were once inland seas. This is further evidence that humans evolved in an aquatic habitat. Tribes like the Jarawa, Xingu, Bajau and Moken live exclusively in aquatic habitats which is why they suffer far less than the civilized world. This page is meant to raise awareness of the Aquatic Ape Theory and discuss how it can be used to cure mankind's medical and social ills.
