The Fastball - Evolution's Peak?
http://www.pasthorizonspr.com/index.php/...adaptation

Quote:It’s easy to marvel at the athleticism required to throw a 90-mile-per-hour fastball, but when Neil Roach watches baseball, he sees something else at work – evolution.

That ability – to throw an object with great speed and accuracy – is an uniquely human adaptation, one that Roach believes was crucial in our evolutionary past. How, when and why humans evolved the ability to throw so well is the subject of a study published in the journal Nature. The team found that a suite of changes to our shoulders and arms allowed early humans to more efficiently hunt by throwing projectiles, helping our ancestors become part-time carnivores and paving the way for a host of later adaptations, including increases in brain size and migration out of Africa.

Of course, the creatards will insist that "adam" had a great fastball.

No, Adam was a knuckleball pitcher, Lucifer however could bring the heat.

They forgot to mention that the lord drowned everybody in the stadium in the 7th inning.
