Homo Perfectus

I am an atheist. I believe in evolution. Some people aren’t atheists. Some people believe in something called “intelligent design”. Well I take issue with this theory. God or no God, there is nothing remotely intelligent about human design. The design of humans is crap. Look, here comes one now.

Homo Sapien

Hardly inspiring, is it? If I were God I would have designed something far better and I will now show you exactly what. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Homo Perfectus. Homo Perfectus is like Homo Sapien but with the following improvements:


Two arms is not enough. What about all those times when you need to carry three things? Homo Perfectus has four arms. In this way he or she can carry three things and still have an arm spare for mischief and petty crime.

With four arms comes four hands. The digits on the two new hands would be utility digits – each finger would perform its own special function, like the tools on a Swiss Army knife:

Left Hand

  • Fork
  • Corkscrew
  • Saw
  • Can opener

Right Hand

  • Knife
  • Bottle Opener
  • Fish Scaler
  • Screw Driver

(NB Homo Perfectus will never actually use the fish scaler.)

One of Homo Sapien’s most fundamental flaws becomes apparent when wanting to push a button which is more than four inches away from the end of their arm. Homo Perfectus would therefore have a metre long index finger on the upper left hand.

Homo Perfectus would have feet three times as long and five times as wide as Homo Sapien so that he or she could walk on snow without sinking into it.

Big feet to allow easy traversing of snowy ground


Homo Perfectus can shoot powerful laser beams from his or her eyes and uses this ability for cooking food and shooting cats and dogs for recreational purposes.

Homo Sapien’s ears are useless for eavesdropping. Homo Perfectus solves this problem by having ears on the end of extendable tentracles, a bit like Mr. Tickle’s arms. The tentracles can be controlled such that if a private conversation is occurring across the room, Homo Perfectus would simply extend one or both tentracles until the ear(s) are within a few centimetres of the conversation, thus catching all the juicy details while the eavesdroppees are none the wiser.

Homo Perfectus has an elephant’s nose as elephants have the best noses.

Homo Sapien has hair in all of the wrong places. How often do you hear one say, “Brrrr, my armpit is cold!” Never!! But Homo Sapien continually suffers with cold ears, nose, fingers and toes. Homo Perfectus has hair on all of these, but nowhere else.

Hair in all the right places

Homo Perfectus has wings on its head, thus making aeroplanes obsolete and thereby solving global warming problems.

Lastly, Homo Perfectus is blue so he or she is camouflaged from sharks when swimming in the sea.

This thought experiment is more important than it first seems. If Homo Sapien is the design masterpiece of the greatest intellect in the universe then how did I improve upon it with such ease? It blows the whole intelligent design theory out of the water! I have disproved intelligent design! What a moment in our existence!

Oh wait. That’s been done a billion times already.


P.S. If you have other suggestions for the design of Homo Perfectus, I would love to hear them.

    Wonderful. Actually I would use the fish scaler. But how the hell am I supposed to get stones out of horses hooves? PS: One utility hand should always be extra cold for holding beer.

    Hello Rabbit,

    That was an awesome post. Highly entertaining. I’m a weird hybrid of a spiritual person with strong belief in atheism. I know, makes no sense at all. That’s what my atheist friends tell me.
    Regardless, love the post. Keep up the great work.
    As a side note about Homo Perfectus: how ’bout immunity to diseases? Wouldn’t that have been a simple one for the ‘ol g-o-d? Stupid old man, anyway.

    Homo Perfectus looks eerily like one of my ex-boyfriends.

    Homo Perfectus looks a bit like Watto from Star Wars…

  6. He should have a chair built into his bum for convenient sitting downs.

  7. Dear Rabbit

    Could he please have that thing in his throat removed that makes him snore?
    Could he have a small stick attached to his willy which puts the toilet seat down after he pees?
    And like a Glade scented candle could he release a waft of floral odour every 20 minutes or so, particularly in the morning and at the gym?

    Many thanks.
