Always good to read the comments! Found this nice summary of hard facts that solidly debunk the "aquatic ape" theory, which states at some point in the distant past we had an ancestor which spent most if not all of its time in the water.
Debunking Aquatic Ape Theory (AAT) people in the early 90s is what got me started down the road that eventually lead to this site. I used to rip into AAT people on the usenet group talk.origins constantly, even getting into a heated e-mail debate with a guy in Australia (you can still see part of it here, on a thread started by none other than the late Douglas Adams).
Update: Ok, I found a much better thread on my AAT stuff. In response to this:
