What if the current age has devolved?

While the current religion is progress, nothing prevents an orientation of perception which observes its opposite.

Maybe the statue does depict the foot of a prior man (our super great grandfather), but, although we think in lines of age after age relentlessly evolving, what if instead we are devolving?

It might be a defining attirbute of humanity, that is, only for humans, devolution remains an option

Can a deer devolve? I know my labrador can't. But I am positive that I am capabable of degeneration at any moment.

So it is feasible, given evolutionary principles, that a random mutation among one of the original inhabitants of the island (4 toes) -- which confers no benefit nor a drawback -- became a dominant feature of the small isolated community on the island.

Was this far too serious for a pinky toe post Smile

No more than one would be on Hemingway's five toed cats!
