Elaine Morgan says we evolved from aquatic apes
At the TED-Conferences genius after genius is holding her or his talk. But despite the fact that TED is bursting with smartness, there are just a few cases in which the audience gives standing ovations. After Elaine Morgan finished her talk about the origin of men - one of those rare cases happened. Television writer and scientific theorist Elaine Morgan defends the idea that humans evolved from primate ancestors who dwelt in watery habitats. For this hypothesis she has many interesting reasons – and if she is right, the history of the evolution of men needs to be rewritten.
