Humans are possibly the weirdest species to have ever lived. We have freakishly big brains that allow us to build complicated gadgets, understand abstract concepts and communicate using language. We are also almost hairless with weak jaws, and struggle to give birth. How did such a bizarre creature evolve?
1. In a world packed with unusual creatures, what reason have we to assume that humans are “possibly the weirdest species to have ever lived”? Publicly funded broadcasters, like the BBC, can buy this stuff. Whether they could sell it in an open market is another question.
2. “freakishly big brains”? What is the point> of such a claim? Why is it “freaking” to have a big brain when our ears ring with claims about the distressed state of stupider creatures we have—all BBC pensioneers say—displaced?
