This might cause bad guys everywhere to rejoice at the prospect of the useless fingerprint being de-selected in evolutionary terms. Fear not however, you defenders of good, another purpose for fingerprints is at hand. One theory is that fingerprints help prevent blisters and this is supported by the fact that we tend to get blisters mostly on the areas that lack prints. The best guess so far is that fingerprints might act like tyre treads and improve grip by enhancing water removal.
