We all know that chimps, along with any other primate that isn’t really small, are a lot stronger than humans. At what point did we lose that strength? Is it truly gone, or are we just unable to tap into it?
It doesn’t make much sense to me that we would lose strength as a result of evolution. Sure, our bigger brains could take down a strong yet dimwit ancestor. But why haven’t we kept the strength anyway? Is it really that much trouble for an organism to develop lots of brain power and still have strong muscles? It’s not like the chimps have freakishly big muscles. Is having a more powerful CNS or whatever chimps have really so much trouble that it evolved into weakness?
(I’m skeptic of the reasoning that we simply didn’t need it anymore. It would take the death of the stronger early “humans” to get rid of the trait. Perhaps this is more evidence that we simply don’t tap into it anymore).
