I was at school with Algis and heard years ago he´d got this theory so I´m here to check it out. Congratulations on getting this up and running. The purpose of all scientific endeavour is to arrive at a more complete version of the truth. I should confess that I am somewhat skeptical of the hypothesis, from my sketchy knowledge of it, although I do know a fair bit about hominid evolution, so I hope I´ll be able to find a decent presentation of the evidence for waterside.
Hey, Simon! Welcome!
I would have thought life on or around Brazilian beaches would have made the idea seem a little more attractive to you by now but I'm sure some of the people here will be able to present some compelling arguments.
My Tip for Now: Just try to dispel any images of mermaids. The idea, for me, is simply more selection from wading, swimming and diving in our lineage than that leading to chimps. "More" needn't be "much more".
