As much as it would be cool to be a swimming ape and to entertain all that romantic imagery of mermaids and the lost city of Atlantis conjure up, I just think there are too many holes in this theory. First off the top of my head is what would we have eaten? Plankton? Sea grass chewing our cud like a sea cow. Maybe we swam fast with our webbed fingers grabbed a fish and sank our flat teeth into a raw and wriggling bass. Honestly, we haven't the defensive tools to survive in the water. How would w fight off predators? With a trident?
Cool theory but I ain't buying it.
