6. What makes you assume bipedalism is better?

It slows you down and makes you easy prey.

Knuckle walking is actually an evolved trait as our common ancestor was arboreal.

One branch of the family tree went one way towards knuckle walking and the other went upright. Both had about the same intelligence level for millions of years.
