Humans: the survivors

Filed under: Links — rakhesh @ 10:16 am

The popular view of our ancient ancestors as hunters who conquered all in their way is wrong, researchers have told a major US science conference. §

Turns out its possible that early humans might not have been hunters; rather, they were hunted by other species and thus evolved to become more co-operative and take care of themselves. Its funny this article mentions that you know, coz I do remember reading somewhere that man is such a fickle puny two legged creature and yet its somehow managed to outwit all other species. Guess this is how we managed to be survivors. :) And I guess that’s why there’s such a big emphasis on social life and behaving properly in society and being extrovertish and social etc.
