    noone would know how we lost our hair, some don&#39;t even believe Darwin&#39;s theory - but i&#39;m going to guess and say that bald people are more sexy than hairy chimps

    im just wondering how we made the transition from fur to clothes

    I would imagine that hair was strongly linked with survival. Those without hair could not survive the cold.

    As man decided to use fur for added warmth, the relationship between hair and survival dissociated. So both the hairy and hairless survived to a reproducive age.

    Once hair became unrelated to survival, hair became totally expendible from an evolutionary standpoint. Hair mutation would not be fatal, so through time all the mutations in the hair genes became additive and our thick fur coats became a thing of the past.

    Evolution only holds on to those things that ensure survival to the reproductive age, the rest are free to mutate as they please.
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    my old chemistry teacher once told me that ferral children had a small covering of hair over their body to keep warm
    i don&#39;t know if i believe him or not
