Yes it's possible. All you need to do is to isolate a human population to a habitat that you transform slowly (over millions of years) to an aquatic one. Or maybe not. At least whales and seals and all the other aquatic mammals never "reverted" back to gills. I'm guessing it has something to do with all mammals being endotherms thus needing lots and lots of oxygen and water having relatively little dissolved oxygen and blablabla

I don't see why not. I've seen Americans devolving since the 70s, getting more and more stupid and aggressive and selfish. Not to mention fatter. Anyone else?


Well, that wasnt necessary....
