A popular theory in Anthropology, although not well known outside the field, is:
"The Aquatic Ape Theory"
It began with Elaine Morgan, then semi-popularized by Desmond Morris.
The theory basically proves (to me, and anyone else with a brain and an open mind) that modern humans are semi-aquatic, and evolved from an aquatic or
This theory is much different than the popular theory of humans evolving from a chimpanzee-type-ape that walked-into-the-savanna.
I think the aquatic theory has been pushed away by the elite because it makes humans more unique, and separates us more (evolutionarily-speaking) from
the other apes. I think the elites want the masses to consider humans "just like any other ape/animal" when it's not true.
BUT, as for gills. . . NO, but we might have had an ancestor similar to an aquatic mammal, dolphins or seals, for example. Seals and bears split on
their evolutionary line probably 25 million years ago. I would say humans and other apes split about 15 million years ago. Even that is much
different than what most archaeologists would say, which is 8 to 14 million at most, usually even less (because they want us to think we are just like
other apes). Think about on the MSM when they talk of a "missing link" just 2 or 3 million years old. . . the missing link is more likely 15
million years old, and was under-water (harder to preserve).
By the way, I have degrees in anthropology and archaeology.
