View Full Version : Homosapien Design Flaws

Creator, forgive me, but you did some really stupid stuff when designing the human body. Thanks for giving us brains larger than walnuts (well, some exceptions are inevitable/chiefs4me), but what about 'funny bone?' Did you not think that we would occasionally whack the ulnar nerve? If so, are you sadistic?

What other parts of the human body would you change if you could? What design improvements could be made?

Teeth should either regenerate periodically (like in sharks) or should be much more durable.

The human body should be twice as strong as it is. Ligaments, bones, muscles etc. Top to bottom.

Great thread idea!

An obvious one is teeth and in general stuff in the mouth. Has anyone found a use for wisdom teeth yet or are they just there to grow in and get infected causing large amounts of pain?

And really, our Creator should have made our teeth out of titanium. I respect the fact that our teeth already are the hardest substances in our body, but I don't see cats or dogs or squirrels brushing their teeth and they seem to do just fine.

Also, a thumb on the foot might be nice. It's not fair that monkeys have them and we don't. Imagine what we could climb/scale if we had the ability to swing and hold onto stuff with our feet.

A longer tounge could be useful. You know so you could grab leaves off of high branches easier.

Human life span should be double what it currently is. It takes most people a long time to figure out what life is all about and what they want to do and by the time they figure it out their bodies are aging and they can't do what they used to do. Further, having time to develop mentally over a longer period of time would make us a smarter and hopefully wiser race. (a least thats my hope as I'm an optimist).

No.... your dog licks his ass instead..... so I'm not sure if mimicking your dog would work very well in that situation...

Our back is horribly designed for bipedal motion, which is one of the main reasons why so many people have chronic back pain, and our body should be able to regenerate cartilige in our joints rapidly.

However, homo sapiens does have by far the largest penis size of all primates. I believe a gorilla's dick would be something like 1/2" if their body were to the scale of a humans.

I'm an Indian, all right; but here in the nation they call us the "civilized tribe". They call us "civilized" because we're easy to sneak up on. White men have been sneaking up on us for years.

And let me guess: your eyes and ears all point to the front, right?

This is a huge flaw. We've got a personal radar system that has a Pearl Harbor-sized gap at 6 o'clock. Frankly, I'm shocked that some animal like the shark or the alligator hasn't evolved specifically to approach humans from the back.

I knew this guy once who had itty bitty tiny ears, but they were cupped into a very forward position. I always figured that he could hear a mouse rustling in the grass ahead of him at fifty yards, but would be killed walking on railroad tracks before he was 30.

If we all used 100% of our brain we'd be smart enough to make a robot ditch-digger or something.

In fact, a case could be made that supreme intelligence could solve the rest of the homosapien design flaws that exist. :p



well ... except for that whole roto-rooter thingy. :huh: :Lin:

How about greater redundancy in the circulatory and nervous systems?

Failing that, an organ whose purpose is to create cells that cruise along in the blood stream, unclogging as they go. Kind of a natural "scrubbing bubbles" action...

I have often wondered why are knees, ankles, hips and back were all such relatively weak points. And of course teeth, nothing is worse then tooth pain. Ear hair, nose hair and back hair are all pretty pointless. I mean if it doesn't need to grow out of control in our first 30 years of our life, why does it need to after that?

I am sure that women can find a lot more to complain about though.
