    Humans only came to be as-is because of a wonky evolutionary line shaped by environmental changes: dinosaur-bullied, rodent-like creatures living in trees even after dinosaurs up and died, evolving further into primates->monkeys->apes that grew bigger and lived in groups, then forced to take to the land as forests began to shrink - the thumbs, being accustomed into verticality and social skills all enabling the evolution into a hominid with an unpright posture, tool-making capabilities capable of improving and passing those skills to the next generation. Oh, and sweating was pretty useful too.

    If you're talking about the basic prerequisites (opposable thumbs, upright posture and sociability) instead of the more specific features of human physique, then I'd reckon you're right.
    Can you not? I swore off from digesting the typical Current Affairs BS so I can partake in something more worth my time, don't drag this shit in here as well.

    Astronomers claim to have discovered the aminoacid glycine, which may be another hint towards life on Venus.

    Using the ALMA telescope in the Atacama desert, they have detected this aminoacid mostly around the equator, none were detected at the poles.

    The study isn't peer-reviewed yet, but it looks promising and plausible.

    Crazy shit.
