That's not all that grew, if you know I mean! Their skulls would have needed to enlarge proportionally to accommodate for the increased brain size. It's pretty straightforward, really.

What a load of ******** . It was after humans first discovered cooking. Cooked food requires less time and effort to digest, which means a small stomach is necessary and a larger brain can develop.

I would rather like to think of it in terms of our adaptations. early life favored those that had strong adaptations or advantageous ones, as a result our bodies first went towards living in trees, there was a food source there, general safety, and often other whatever-the-hell-scientists-prefer-to-call-its there too. I like to think that after our numbers started to grow and we started to group together for protection we began to develop intellect and social constructs as a means of further advancing, at the time creatures that grouped together as well as were adapted to their environment did well, and having communication (which would require cranial development) was an immeasurable leg-up on the competition. as we developed social constructs more and more we also passed around information vital to the survival of the species, and with that we became more dependent on each other, worked with each other better, began to coordinate and learn, thus further expanding our comprehension and developing our brains more. idk, I'm no genius but I think that makes some sense...right?

The cat one is misleading. When you back down from a staring at a cat, you are telling the cat that he is the dominant one. The reason they become friendly is because they think you're their bitch.

About the brain size: It was when humans started roasting their meat. The energy that was used to digest the raw food became available for the cognitive process

Why aren't scientists feeding cooked food to various species to verify this theory

User avatar #136 to #131 - coolcalx (05/01/2014) [-]
because cooking meat didn't CAUSE the brain evolution. The evolution was a byproduct of a gene mutation in the jaw muscles. cooking meat simply allowed more energy to be absorbed for brain growth.

had the genetic mutation not taken place, cooking food would not have enlarged our brains. it would have just made us stronger.
User avatar #138 to #136 - badmonkey ONLINE (05/01/2014) [-]
Uh huh, but that was implied in his comment, and what I was getting at. Maybe he worded it funny but still
User avatar #139 to #138 - coolcalx (05/01/2014) [-]
my point is, if you fed cooked food to other species, it wouldn't change anything, because a prerequisite for brain growth is skeletal growth. because they didn't suffer the muscle mutation, their brains wouldn't grow from eating cooked food.
User avatar #147 to #139 - badmonkey ONLINE (05/01/2014) [-]
Yes I fully understand that, and appreciate your effort and attempt to educate. I made that comment in a way to initiate him thinking more thoroughly about what he said and perhaps rephrase as not to misinform others, because the cause and effect was quite strongly implied in the way he said it

That is one theory. Another that I've heard is that the forests began to shrink (that part happened for sure around that time) forcing them to move into the grasslands. There, they ran into cows and , while looking for food, flipped over the cow **** and discovering psychedelic mushrooms. The theory states that the mushrooms had a part in the rapid acceleration of brain growth. They call it the Stoned Ape Theory haha.

As someone who identifies as "Humurous"
I put an seemingly unexplained effort into making people laugh when i'm talking to them stuff like that
I just cannot stress how true and shocking this fact is to me.

About the white chocolate one
1. White chocolate is made using cocoa butter
2. Who defines what chocolate is or isn't?
#67 to #62 - angelusprimus ONLINE (04/30/2014) [-]
1: Correct. To be precise it must be (by weight) at least 20% cocoa butter, 14% total milk solids, and 3.5% milk fat
2: In USA FDA in Europe EUROVOC.

For the brain doubling in size one, I've heard a theory on that. I heard that the sudden increase in size was probably due to the discovery of fire. When hominids discovered fire, they found that they could use it to cook food. Cooked food has a different nutritional value than uncooked foods and therefore early humans suddenly had a healthier diet. It is possible that this change in nutrition allowed for the rapid development of the human brain.

TL;DR Discovery of fire (may have) changed development of the brain.

You? YOU have a theory?

You faggot, there have been actual scientists, who have researched that for .. ******* centuries.
you are just a ******* loser who read an article on top ten lol facts somewhere.

A majority of us don't have girlfriends so we treat our depression through the internet.
#134 - coolcalx (05/01/2014) [-]
the reason the brain grew is because of a genetic mutation around 2.4 million years ago which weakened the jaw muscles and allowed the cranium to expand, because the muscle wraps around the skull. this is supported by skeletal evidence of hominids, which shows that earlier hominids have grooves in their skulls where the muscles would have attached. It's also supported by later hominids missing two base pairs in the gene that mutated

also, the reason we can speak and other primates can't is because we suffered a mutation to the FOXP2 gene within the last 200,000 years

the more you know

also, feel free to google all of this if you don't believe me
