An Australian anthropologist, Peter McAllister, made startling revelations in his book Manthropology: The Science of the Inadequate Modern Male about how inferior modern man is compared to primitive man.
Mr. McAllister says he has found evidence he believes proves modern man is second-rate to his predecessors specifically in the basic Olympic athletics disciplines of running and jumping.
His analysis of footprints preserved in a fossilized clay-pan lake bed 20,000 years ago shows that an Australian aborigine said to be chasing a prey reached speeds of 37 kilometers per hour on a soft, muddy lake edge.
Mr. McAllister assumes that if the aboriginal hunters then had the benefit of modern training, spiked shoes and running on rubberized tracks, that they could have reached speeds of 45 kph, thus easily outrunning Usain Bolt who reached a top speed of 42 kph during the Beijing Olympics where he run the 100- meters in 9.6 seconds.
Turning to the high jump, Mr. McAllister said the current world high jump record of 2.45 meters is a mediocre performance when compared to some Tutsi men in Rwanda jumping heights of 2.52 meters as photographed by German anthropologist in the early years of last century
“It was an initiation ritual, everybody had to do it. They had to be able to jump their own height to progress to manhood,” McAllister writes.
“No ifs, no buts — the worst man, period…. As a class we are in fact the sorriest cohort of masculine Homo sapiens to ever walk the planet.”
