Just a quick recognition of an interesting list, aptly titled ‘Top 10 Signs Of Evolution In Modern Man‘.  The list briefly covers: Goose bumps, Jacobson’s Organ, Junk DNA, Extra ear muscles, Plantaris Muscle, Wisdom teeth, Third eyelid, Darwin’s point, Coccyx, and Appendix.  While I would have liked to see more references to scientific journals and the like, it still makes for some interesting (if brief) reading.

    Reading!! 😉

    That was a cool list. I never knew we had a third eyelid.

    My favorite example of evolution in humans is the loss of a tendon in the wrist and forearm. Apparently, some humans are being born with two tendons instead of three which gives them a slightly weaker grip. Because they don’t need to have a powerful grip to survive and get food in our world, their mutation is being passed on.

    Classic example of evolution in action.
