Evolution Gap - Where's the Fur?
Fur is beneficial for survival. Evolution stripped humans of this advantage?
No it didn't. The advantage of any feature depends on the specific conditions which change over time. Upright walking hominids who left the trees and walked on the African Savanna needed to keep cool.
A more interesting question is why we kept some hair.
cofty, the wait for 2 is over. Just has a slight change in wording. Must have evolved
cofty, your link does nothing to address the question
Yes it does. It provides proof that Homo sapiens descend from very hairy ancestors who had a arectores pilorum muscle attached to every hair follicle.

Really? You think this is a hole in evolution? A schoolchild could tell you what selection pressures transformed us into "naked apes".
Apes and monkeys and lions and bears don't need to keep cool? Maybe they are already cool.
Besides fur helps stay cool and warm. I'll make up a word for it. Insulation!
If only we had a schoolchild here . .
Read the underlined bit again. Slowly.
cofty, I'll reply slowly.
That doesn't answer the question
Many animals live there with fur
Fur even helps animals stay cool
There! Is that better?
You didn't read it. The answer is really simple.
You are being obtuse - as usual.
Do lions and apes walk upright across the Savannah during the day? What happens if you do that? Does fur keep you cool in the sun or make you overheat?
It's not a matter of opinion, it's about facts.
