Something to think about.
I read about this today. Pretty fascinating stuff, especially as I have been a long-distance runner since jr. high.
That said, unless you meant to imply we should all run to Canada, I am not sure it is political.
I'm sure we'll try our best though...
i wonder if bush believes in evolution
As a theory this doesn't quite make sense. If any old dog can chase down a human in a sprint then the ability to run long distance is useless.
Being able to stand up must be more important because you can see any potential predators coming - it works for mear cats.
He certainly hasn't experience it
It is not useful for evading prey so much as it is useful for hunting. I saw a program about the early humans who used to track prey for miles and miles and miles until it was just too warn out and died of exhaustion.
The reason we can run long distances is 'cause God wanted us to and made us that way.
that's right, so we can chase them pesky liberals that don't want to make any donations.
Why is hard science from Nature in the political discussion? Is it because it says that dirty word, "evolution?"
It was always here because God put it here.
And you're bound and determined to keep it here. But I suppose that's God's will, right?
More OT, I think we are quickly devolving from long-distance running to long-term eating. I would be interested in knowing what percentage of the adult US population, at least, can run a mile in less than 10 minutes, or run it at all.
I only run when someone is chasing me. I call this the ultimate evolutionary development.
I hate running. I can do it, but I hate it. It wrecks my skeletal system.
Put me on skates or a bike and I can zip around for hours, though...
I see your point. If only we could evolve wheels on our feet and cut out the middle man.
