I was in conversation with someone the other day regarding the physical
differences between humans and other primates and mammals.

The differences as observed are:

Humans have little body hair
Humans sweat profusely
Human urine and faeces have a high water content
The nose is streamlined in a downward direction

The explanation give for this is that in recent evolutional history
humans took a brief foray to the oceans and led a semi-aquatic

Is this a generally held opinion or a theory that is in the minority?

If this is possible at what stage in our development would we have been
'in the water'?
