Darwin’s theory of evolution holds that humans evolved from ancient apes. Over hundreds of years, some unnecessary genes were gradually “erased” and switched from running on four legs to walking on two legs.
In today’s world, walking straight seems to be a sign of maturity, proving modern civilized people. Everything that exists in our lives is designed to conform to the shape of the human body moving on two legs.
However, in a remote village in Turkey, people cannot stand or walk straight. They move by crawling with 2 hands and 2 legs. They crawl very quickly and have no difference in speed compared to the way a normal person moves.
Several media outlets have come here to cover the issue. They filmed the villagers moving by crawling on the ground. This made the village the center of attention at the time.
Many people who first watched the video of this scene thought that this was just a trick to attract tourists to develop local tourism. But many experts and researchers have come to verify. The results showed that every citizen’s hand had thick calluses. This shows that they have been moving this way for many years without using protective equipment.
Due to constantly crawling on the ground, the bodies of the people living here are not like ordinary people. Their back and waist bones are deformed, and their hips are also wider.
In addition to the difference in body shape, the researchers also found that the life expectancy of the people here is shorter than that of the average person. People with good physical strength in the village will have a life expectancy about 10 years shorter than those who move normally.
According to Sohu, after visiting this village, many experts have conducted rigorous sampling surveys from water sources to local food. The results show that there is no strange phenomenon in the food used daily.
Some experts tried to communicate with the villagers and found that their words and reactions were not clear. Response in communication is also very slow. The people in the village hardly talk or communicate with the outside world. Therefore, marriage is mainly inbreeding, people in the village get married. This phenomenon has serious consequences such as giving birth to children with birth defects, loss of cognitive ability and walking.
In addition, many experts also noticed that some local people have cerebellar ataxia. Accordingly, lead researcher Liza J. Shapiro of the University of Texa confirmed in the Washington Post that the disease complicates their sense of balance. To adapt, people here have to move on four limbs.
According to the Washington Post, another study found that this is their preferred form of mobility even when climbing and descending stairs. They move easily, and there seems to be no discomfort. This is completely opposite to the average person if trying this gait.
According to Sohu, researchers have questioned why some children are born perfectly healthy and do not have this disease but still move on two hands and two feet? The team believes that because the village is located in a remote area, transportation is underdeveloped, so it is isolated from the outside world. A group of healthy children have never seen the normal way of walking on two legs. So they only learn from their parents, move with 2 hands and 2 legs. Over time, this way of moving has become a habit of the people here.
During the research phase in this village, scientists tried to explain to them the consequences of inbreeding. However, they all ignore the opinions of experts. What makes many people feel sorry for this village is that the children are born with normal bodies but only their parents teach them to crawl. The older generation in the village has formed for the children that walking with two hands and two feet is the right way to go, so if they are educated from a young age, it will be difficult to change.
