Enterprises TV Asks: Why Are We So Violent?

Enterprises TV has discovered a new study that, sadly, confirms what we've known all along:  man is a violent creature.  Many of the more cultured among us have been campaigning for peace over the centuries, but according to a study published in the British journal Biological Reviews, there is evidence that the tendency toward violence is embedded securely in our genes.  For the evidence, you need look no further than the nearest mirror.  The human face looks much as it does, due to thousands of years of fighting.

Enterprises TV reviews a study that says our faces show the results of a history of violence.

The Enterprises TV show notes that the study reveals how much the face reflects many thousands of years of taking punches.  Researchers believe that the recessed eyes, protruding brows and cheek bones have evolved to minimize the damage that could be inflicted from a punch directly to the face.  Although generally, men tend to display these features more than women, both genders look at the world through eyes that have seen more than a little violence.  If it's any consolation, we have mellowed somewhat, as Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon skulls unearthed at archeological digs show much more pronounced facial protection than we have, suggesting that it was an even more violent world for them in the earlier days.  We can only hope that, in the long run, grey matter will prevail and give peace a fighting chance.
