If humans keep waving their arms back and forth, after millions of years of evolution, can they fly?

Since ancient times, mankind has a great dream, that is to fly. In ancient times, when people saw birds flying freely in the sky, they believed that they were very envious, because they had too many survival advantages to fly in the sky. With the ability to fly, not only can we better avoid the attack of some beasts, but also, more importantly, we can choose a much wider place to live.

The ability to fly allows us to ignore the influence of various terrain. For example, the land we live in can no longer survive. If we want to move to a more fertile place, we may have to cross mountains or even across the ocean. In such a difficult situation, it is very difficult to migrate. But if we can all fly, it will be much more convenient. The reason why geese can constantly migrate back and forth from the South and North every year to avoid climate change is that they have a strong ability to fly.

Although human beings are intelligent life and the overlord of the earth, nature does not give us the ability to fly. This is a pity for human beings. After human beings entered the era of science and technology and created flying tools through the power of science and technology, this regret also made us feel the feeling of flying in the sky.


Although we can also fly with the help of aircraft and other aerial tools, this kind of flying is quite different from the free flying ability of birds. I believe that everyone in modern times expects to be able to wave their wings freely like a bird and fly freely in the sky. Although this will give us a pair of wings, I believe many people will be very willing to.

So how do birds fly? In fact, it is the evolution of nature, the evolution of life is a very magical existence, there are countless possibilities. It is believed that the ancestors of birds evolved through the continuous evolution of non flying land creatures. Since there are land creatures that can fly through a long evolution, can humans do the same?

Someone once asked this question: if human beings keep waving their arms back and forth, after millions of years of evolution, is there any hope of flying? We all know that the wings of birds are also external organs and tissues, and the choice of the direction of biological evolution comes from the changes in the ecological environment of nature, and the other is the embodiment of biological activities.


Let’s take the ancestors of human beings as an example. If we can trace back to hundreds of millions of years ago, there were no terrestrial life on earth, only marine life. Later, great changes have taken place in the ecological environment. In order to survive, some marine organisms began to develop to the land. At this time, these marine fish evolved fins.

Fins allow them to move on land, and as time goes on, the evolution of fins becomes more and more obvious, more and more robust, and finally evolved into the limbs of terrestrial organisms. That is to say, the ancestors of current terrestrial organisms are actually evolved from marine fish, and the ancestors of human beings, apes, are also evolved from marine organisms.

So how did apes evolve into humans? In fact, it is also the change of ecological environment that makes some apes have to go out of the forest and start plain life. In plain life, the requirement of hind limbs is more important, so these apes use hind limbs more often, forelimbs and hind limbs continue to differentiate, and finally learn to walk upright.


Darwin’s theory of biological evolution also tells us that the environment plays a very important role in the evolution of a life. When an organism often uses an organ, the organ will become more and more developed and accelerate the process of evolution. In the same way, if some organs are not used often, they will degenerate and disappear in the process of evolution.

All creatures will continue to improve their bodies in this way, and eventually evolve into a new species, and pass on this species from generation to generation. The wings that birds can fly may have been a prominent external organ long ago. Because the ancestors of birds often used this organ, the evolution speed of this organ accelerated and became more and more powerful. Finally, it evolved into a pair of wings and had the ability to fly.

Therefore, theoretically speaking, if human beings constantly wave their arms, their arms will become more and more powerful and will continue to evolve. After millions of years, it is possible to evolve a pair of wings. There are too many such examples in nature, such as giraffes. The reason why their necks are so long is to survive and eat higher leaves. The ancestors of giraffes often elongated their necks, constantly pulled up their necks to eat leaves, and the neck organ became more and more powerful and evolved in the direction of growing.


Of course, in theory, although humans keep waving their arms back and forth, it is also possible to evolve a pair of wings after countless years, according to the research of scientists, this possibility is very small in reality. The reason is that there is no organization on the human back for wing evolution. If we wave our arms back and forth, millions of years later, our arms will evolve stronger. That’s a fact that needs no doubt.

But to evolve a pair of wings, it may be impossible to rely on the power of nature. Because in the direction of nature’s evolution of human beings, the gene sequence of a pair of wings has not evolved. If so, does that mean that human beings will never have the ability to fly freely in the future? Of course not.

Although nature does not give us the ability to fly, powerful scientific and technological forces may help us achieve it. We all know that the essence of all things in the world cannot be separated from science, and the mystery of life cannot escape from the scope of science. Birds have wings to fly, which is fundamentally supported by genes. Birds have genes to fly.


After entering the era of science and technology, human beings began to explore the mystery of biological genes. In the future, it is also a probable event that human beings continue to transform themselves through genetic technology. At that time, maybe we can implant the genes of birds flying into the human body, so that human beings can grow a pair of wings and have the same flying ability as birds.

Maybe someone will say, at that time, we were not birdmen? Although the word “Birdman” is not very popular, I believe no one can resist the temptation of flying ability. Moreover, with the continuous progress of science and technology, if human beings want to obtain the ability to fly in the future, they may not need to have wings. Maybe without wings, we can achieve it. In the world of science, in the world of genes, everything is possible.

If you can get a pair of wings through genetic technology in the future, and have the ability to fly, would you like to? You are welcome to leave a message for discussion and express your opinions.
