Bangor Reads Book Discussion: Your Inner Fish by Neil Shubin
Date: March 29, 2017 Time: 6:00 AM - 7:30 AM
Event Description Why do we look the way we do? What does the human hand have in common with the wing of a fly? In Your Inner Fish, Neil Shubin tells the story of evolution by tracing the organs of the human body back millions of years, long before the first creatures walked the earth. By examining fossils and DNA, Shubin shows us that our hands actually resemble fish fins, our head is organized like that of a long-extinct jawless fish, and major parts of our genome look and function like those of worms and bacteria.
