The Homosapien thought..

Today I was having this weird thought.

Why are we humans named as "homosapiens"? Didn't the nomenclaturist / the person, who is supposed to give names to the human species, think of something before naming our spieces ? From homo habilus to homo erectus, all the known evolutionary species associated with humans starts with a "homo". Dont take me to homo erectus. Will write about that some other time.

This raises a huge question in my find. Are we all born "homos" and we get conditioned to become "hetero" so that there might be that one lucky couple which gives rise to the "heterosapiens"? So in the future we may have a movie aptly titled "Planet of the Homos".

I seriously wonder what happens when we meet aliens. When they ask us "What is the name of your species?", are we going to reply back to them saying we are HOMO sapiens.

Or have we already been visited by aliens ?

I guess we have already been visited by aliens. No, I am not supporting the Seed of Life on Earth theory but just randomly guessing that this naming issue is the work of those bast#$d aliens. They might have camoflouged themselves as the group of people working on choosing a name for the human species. And they have chosen it as homosapiens.

At the end of it I don't know why the martians or the dumbass scientist named us homos. But I do know for sure I am straight as a "ganna" (sugarcane for those who can't ...).

first i was gonna write...another one bytes the dust...(pun intended)

then i saw your archive section...and saw that you were on blogger since 2004...hmmm...

well, what do i say, you have gone from being a homo habilis in '04 to being a homo neanderthalensis in '06...to finally being a homo sapien now...
happy evolution...hehehe

and coming back to your post...
the origin of the word homo-sexual is half greek and half latin...where homo in greek means same and sexus in latin means 'of gender'(related to)...
while homo in homo sapiens has an all latin origin as with all scientific names for species...
where homo in latin means human being or man...

as to who i am...
guess who???
