People are also apt to find human faces or shapes in places there shouldn't be one. (Dots on a paper, or a face on the moon, for example.)

ffs, well duh. Thats like saying" a new study shows that humans evolved to have two hands" Obviously we know this because we have two hands. We already know what we evolved to be able to do and have do to the fact we do it and have it .....

I almost spelt it out, but I figured people would understand. I guess I was wrong. By saying ourselves, I mean past humans selected who they mated with. Just like when peahens select only peacocks that have the nicest tails, humans selected those with unique and easily recognizable faces.

yup.

It's pretty obvious that the quote you quoted was talking about evolutionary selection and that I meant sexual selection by saying ourselves.

nah man, i quoted the quote i quoted (hang on a sec while i read that back to myself..... yup, seems ok....) because, for a man with Letters after his name, his choice of words sucks, and words are more important than letters!

(the ones after his name must be LsD.....)

Perhaps more likely humans evolved the ability to better recognize the nuances of facial expression to better facilitate non-verbal communication ... an elemental survival skill.
