In class, we talked about Darwin’s hunting hypothesis, the patchy forest hypothesis, and the male provisioning hypothesis, among others. These theories of bipedalism have positive and negative aspects to them. No single one is correct, but some seem more plausible than others.
For this week’s discussion, I would like you to critically analyze the theory for bipedalism presented in this video: (https://www.ted.com/talks/elaine_morgan_says_we_evolved_from_aquatic_apes?utm_campaign=tedspread–a&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=tedcomshare)
I would like you to evaluate this theory based on what you learned in class. I would also encourage you to do some research and bring in information from outside the lecture. For your first post, you need to take a stance (agree or disagree with this theory) and then provide justification for your stance.
