Do You Have Pig Related Apps on Your Phone?
Hello to all my fellow pig & pork lovers. My name is David and I will be contributing to the MyPigMeUp blog weekly with post about technology & science that involves pigs. Just so you have a little background about me, I am in the IT field, I also enjoy learning about technology and how it involves us in this world. With that in mind, hope you will enjoy my first blog post of the week.
Could humans be a mixed hybrid of pigs and chimps mating?
Based off a article found at http://news.techeye.net/science/humans-are-a-pig-chimp-hybrid. It’s believed that humans came from a mix of a pig and a chimp mating over time. Hard to believe this theory could be true or not? Based off results from Geneticist Eugene McCarthy it is a very possible scenario that we take certain aspects of pigs. For example, our skin and organs microstructure issimilar. No wonder I feel a uncanny love for pigs then. Then just like the little oinkers I never had.
Then on top of that we have taken certain living habits over there mating. Like the chimps raised several pigs and they took on the cultural habits of those chimps. So just think how some of those animalistic tendencies could have been passed down to the human species. Just how we like to sit on the couch and ponder our thoughts. Last time I checked pigs and chimps do the same exact thing.
Take the article for what is worth it validates some possibilities of how humans become what they are today. One hypothesis says we mated and from there the genetics created different humanoids and other species of animals as well.
Hope you found the first article about how humans and pigs share so many unique qualities with one another. With great geneticist out in the field today who knows what will be shown in the future. Who knows maybe there a pig out there that looks just like you. Literally the possibilities with science are endless. Until next time your friendly technology pig blogger David Holtzclaw and may all your piggy dreams come true.
