The human being, like the immortals, naturally places sexual intercourse far and away above all other joys – yet he has left it out of his heaven! The very thought of it excites him; opportunity sets him wild; in this state he will risk life, reputation, everything – even his queer heaven itself – to make good that opportunity and ride it to the overwhelming climax.
– Mark Twain, Letters from Earth
What are our Origins? When did we as a species begin to inhabit the Earth? How did sexual reproduction play a role in our migration, leading us to populate the planet? What are the adaptive benefits of sexual reproduction? How does sexuality effect our species today? Where are we headed sexually in the future?
The upcoming exhibit will cover seven major species that have shaped the development of our evolutionary perspective. These species are widely recognized by scientists for major cornerstone points leading to modern humans. The exhibit will include life size skull cast replica’s of our evolutionary journey, anatomically correct models, media images, and a detailed graphic of our evolutionary tree, to list a few. The information will include topics regarding human sexuality, the evolutionary process, birthing techniques, bipedalism, brain size, social dynamics and early mating choices, and much more. This exhibit is meant to be densely detailed to cover as much of the human experience as possible, as well as new scientific discoveries. In brief, what makes us human? This exhibit will shed light on some of the most controversial aspects of our shared human existence – past, present, and future.
This exhibit will be immersive and opens November 15th, 2017. Call 702 794 4000 for more information or to become a patron contributor the the most complete evolution exhibit in Las Vegas.
