While this sounds like an interesting theory, I'm gonna go ahead and question it.

Wouldn't it be more beneficial for the child to cry when seeing what it perceives to be a dangerous predator, so its caretaker will come and get it (thus negating the threat, since obviously a bird of prey isn't going to swoop down and take it from the arms of its much larger mother)? And since humans have never been very precocious infants, it's not like they can be left unsupervised out in the open for a prolonged period of time, so it's mother it's probably pretty close by at any given time.

Also, at the point in their development when this would be most crucial, the child wouldn't be able to see the bird anyway. Infants can only see 8-15 inches away; and by the time the hawk is that close, let's face it, baby's ****** . A baby can't even recognize the shape of another person from across the room until it's 8 months old. It's not going to be able to discern a circling bird above them from a **** ton of other extremely fuzzy, hard-to-see stimuli.

However, I would love to be proven wrong if anyone has an article or something that discusses this, because, like I said, it's an entertaining thought.

Though I agree with your first point and that this is some Tumblr ******** , I must say that the most crucial part of the childs development would be when it is a litlle older and can play by itself alone and therefore will be able to look more than just 8-12 inches away. And also when the baby is 5 month it is getting better at spotting very small items and tracking moving objects.

But anyway I agree with you and this is just a little correction because I've just been reading about it.

I have another argument to add: if homo sapiens was less evolved and lived in the nature (as we once was/did) the male parent actueally carry around with their kid almost the entire day when not hunting for several months, and when hunting leaving them with a "day-care" person. Much like ostriches....

I agree with most of your points, however it is quite evident that babies can see across a room as early as 6 months.
User avatar #35 to #14 - elcreepo (08/02/2013) [-]
On the first part, there are many animals that stay quiet during their early period because a cry would attract a predator and the parents are generally out hunting. Kittens do it, puppies do it, birds do it...

That said I agree with the second point and am very unsure if human parenting can be at all compared to a cat, dog, bird or any other wild animal that mates for the duration of the infancy.

I have read an article on research where babies were left alone where they thought no one would watch them. After a while they would stop crying and instead lie still. They attributed this to the fact that the baby would not attract predators, while it's ingrained in human instinct to take care of our young, which would in turn mean that a human nearby would know where the baby was and could take care of it when possible. Because of this instinct the infant would not need to make noise to attract humans.

While i do not know how accurate that is for birds of pray.

Considering the amount of babies that giggle and try to play with the mobile, I'm pretty sure that it's pretty much ******** .

Kinect works very well, actually. Obviously Forza 4 and Skyrim had terrible kinect functionality but the workout games and kinect sports was very good

******** is rife on the internet. I see ******** on Funnyjunk all the time. Your contempt for Tumblr is misplaced in this instance.
#68 to #46 - wwkybobo (08/02/2013) [-]
Not really, Tumblr fags consistently post ******** (In caps i might add), and that just isn't OK. Especially when they make up even more lies to justify their original lie. Besides, it wasn't even funny..

Ive got every reason to hate Tumblr. And you can't stop me.

Yes, I am "so ******* done", before any comical geniuses choose to reply.

You're telling him to leave? This is Funnyjunk, not Tumblr. Tumblr needs to get the **** off this website before it drives it even farther into the ground.

While i'm not a fan of tumbler, tumbler does not choose to be here, its people on this site that take the content and post it here.

or it's because they're fascinated by moving objects.
infants like moving and interactive objects and scenery, it helps them develop their senses
