Why do we still have ugly people? You’d think that evolution would try and kill off anyone with an undesirable/unlikeable trait right? But, still we not only have ugly people, we also have unhealthy and stupid people [especially humans]!!
So are beauty, health and intelligence overrated?
I mean if evolution were to pick and choose the traits in humans for a better race. After all, we have been around for about 200,000 years [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homo_sapien]. That would mean that evolution would still have a minor effect on us and we would be getting more and more beautiful, healthier and more intelligent. [Isn’t that what most of us strive for – to be more handsome [beautiful], healthier and fitter and more intelligent?] So, let’s look @ what evolution really has done to these 3 traits…
Beautiful – apart from the receding hair present in humans, beauty is really open to debate!
Healthy – our dying age has increased, but a healthy life is open to debate!
Intelligence – ok, let’s not even go into this right now!
So, what has evolution decided that would naturally evolve from humans? Or well, are we just not intelligent enough to look for _that_ trait, which has evolved?
