So, I’m ok at genetics, I’ve never studied it specifically outside of Bio 101, but I can keep up.
First week of Human Behavioral Evolution class and
💥 BAM 💥
“You know how, in all k-12 and intro college classes about biology or anthropology, that evolution does not work by traits gained during an individuals life, rather how successful the genes were for their individuals environment.”
The giraffe 🦒 that the learns to stretch its neck that eats more, doesn’t pass on its now stretched neck…..right?
*Traits gained during life can be passed down genetically”. Excuse me? WHY THE LIES?!?! Why didn’t we learn this from the start! Now I have to UNLEARN things! IDK who came up with that idea, but it sure was not a good one.
When I learn more, I’ll do a write up! #anthropology #AcademicChatter #skeleton #scicomm #archaeology #stem #anthropologymatters #Homo #Species #morphology #paleoanthropology #education #Human
