Why we lost our fur
In my opinion, the primary reason we lost our fur is our longevity compared to the other furry animals.

Notice that other long lived mammals, like the Elephant, has also lost its fur.

Notice that the furry mammals have short life spans compared to humans.

Do hairy backs count?

If several of us of the human race still get hair on our backs, even though they are covered most of the time, might not we get at least matted fur if we went naked all day, year-round?  Maybe fur is only a nudist lifestyle away?


BTW, on your question to Blogit, I think they might be afraid to admit that their membership numbers are down in the wake of their new policies and from booting or "disciplining" popular bloggers.  When they were on the upswing, they would also gain from not divulging the numbers if they were not as high as people might assume they were.  I suspect that there are people who left Blogit but whose blogs are still visible, given that they haven't posted in years.  If Blogit retains the ex-Bloggers "earnings", they also have an interest in not divulging that comments on the ex-Blogs will not elicit a visit to ones own blog as this removes a major incentive in visiting these blogs.  If you, or I, are curious enough, a good estimate of membership is to count how many bloggers appear in the latest comments or posts over the past week, fortnight or month.

That is a a fine ponder point! I think it is up in the air on evolution! I believe if we truly find out we will be amazed that it hasn't changed all that much! It is about free will and we must choose the Lord!

And I thought about the color of the rainbow and this is my humble thought:

The Meaning of the color Indigo
The color and material used in Elizabethan Clothing was extremely important. People who could wear the color Indigo was dictated by English Law! These were called the Sumptuary Laws. The colors of Elizabethan clothes, including the color Indigo, provided information about the status of the man or woman wearing them. This was not just dictated by the wealth of the person, it also reflected their social standing. The meaning of colors during the Elizabethan era represented many aspects of their life - the social, religious, biblical and Christian symbolism was reflected in the color Indigo!

The Symbolic and Religious Meaning of the color Indigo
Some interesting facts and information about the symbolic, religious, Christian and Biblical meaning of the color Indigo

  • The color of Indigo was a deep, rich dark blue

  • Sometimes referred to as Royal Blue with its obvious connotation

  • The symbolic meaning of the color indigo was power, importance and wealth

  • Indigo with the color blue has a Biblical meaning symbolizing heavenly grace. The Virgin Mary is often depicted wearing indigo or blue clothing

  • The source was the indigo plants and the dye was imported from India - extremely expensive and used to produce the color indigo

  • Indigo dye held colors fast and this rich color was worn by the wealthy and not to be confused with the color blue which was produced by using cheap blue dye obtained from woad

  • People who were allowed to wear the color indigo during the Elizabethan era, as decreed by the English Sumptuary Laws, were Royalty, Nobility and members of the Council

The Dye used to produce the color Indigo
Some interesting facts and information about the dyes used to produce the color. Indigo dye held colors fast and this rich color was worn by the wealthy and should not to be confused with the color blue which was produced by using cheap blue dye obtained from woad. The source was the indigo plants ( Indigofera tinctoria of India )and the dye was imported from India at great expense. Indigo dye was produced by a process of fermentation, filtering and finally drying into cakes of dye.

Waterkat, If it made us more evolved we would be more god-like;  what if we are simply as evolved as we are, and furry creatures are as evolved as they are, like apples & oranges?  Don't forget, we have reasonig power yes, but we also have to deal with all that animal stuff too.  People forget that.
