The human form cannot and does not, grow wings. Period. Anyone who says they have done such is lying or is delusional.
The human genetic code does not, nor has it ever, contained the DNA “instructions” for wings. Birds are the descendants of the raptor dinosaurs and early flighted creatures such as Archeopteryx.
So-called “junk” DNA does NOT spontaneously combine to cause radical mutations in the lifetime of a single organism – indeed, we have no evidence that junk DNA has recombinant capability at all.
The human form is adapted for land-based, upright, bipedal ambulation. Not one of its systems can support the muscle work and exertion necessary for muscle powered flight.
Attempts to produce “wings” using ultralight materials flapped by the arms fail utterly. The human musculature system simply cannot, no matter how strong the individual is or how in shape they are, cannot perform the muscle work necessary to achieve lift-off or sustain powered flight.
Attempts to do so did however lay the groundwork for hang gliding and parasailing technology, which does allow the human form to fly.
For the sake of argument/debate, if a human child did spontaneously grow wings there is simply no way they could remain out of the public eye. Once they were removed from school there would be home visits by school agents, such as truancy workers and child protective services to ensure the child was being correctly homeschooled.
Contrary to what others here will tell you, homeschooled children cannot simply “vanish” from sight. Their teacher parent must still satisfy the school board guidelines for allowing a child to be homeschooled, such as a submitted and approved curriculum, evidence of the child’s continued good health such as shown by regular check ups by medical professionals. No child can simply “vanish” from public sight in such a manner without arousing local suspicion.
Neighbors, family, friends, etc. etc. etc. i.e. all the people you routinely come into contact with during the course of each day would notice such a disappearance and eventually, inevitably, CPS agents would knock on the door to make sure the child was healthy and not being harmed. If they were turned away this would only strengthen their resolve and the next time they would return with a warrant and Judge’s order to be allowed to see the child. Think of how prolific cameras are in our society – everyone has them in their phones now, and recording devices on private and public land record each of us an estimated 100 times per day. Someone is always watching you.
Any person with such things on their backs would be incredibly ungainly and could not drive or even fit into a car or other mode of similar transport, and would have difficulty even going through doors. The minimum wingspan necessary to support the human form in flight is 22 feet, as shown by hang glider technology. At that length each wing would have to be 11 feet long each. With a bird wing having three joints – one at the attachment to the body, one a fourth of the distance from the body, and one more half of the distance from the body, there is simply no possible way to fold them against the body in any way that they would be hidden at all. If placed under clothing the bulge would be unmistakable, as well as the primaries trailing past the ankles.
They would be seen. They would be photographed. They would be sought out. They would be filmed. People would clamor after them night and day for interviews. They would be followed, hounded, watched every minute.
Humans do not grow wings. Ever. No one who claims such is telling the truth. They are delusional, or lying. Period. 3 days ago
