At the beginning of the 20th century, all the fossils that were used to support the theory that humans and apes evolved from a common ancestor
could fit on a billiard table. Since then, the number of fossils used to support that theory has increased. Now it is claimed that they would fill a
railroad boxcar. However, the vast majority of those fossils consist only of single bones and isolated teeth. Complete skulls—let alone complete
That last statement is deceptive. The vast majority consist of only single bones? That's one heck of a claim.
Here is a neat tool that lets you look up the exact fossils found for each species. It has pictures for most of them. Unfortunately, it doesn't have
them all, but it's a good start. They are correct that full skeletons are rare, but it is also a fact that fossilization is an extremely rare process
and we can't just dig anywhere in Africa. Most of the examples here have more than a single bone, with the exception of some skulls.
Comprehensive list here
With more than twenty different recent ancestors found, isn't it a bit silly to deny human evolution at this point? If it's god, then give him credit
for evolution already.
Question: Has the increased number of fossils attributed to the human “family tree” settled the question among evolutionary experts as to
when and how humans evolved from apelike creatures?
Wrong, the answer is Yes. Descent with modification observed in small changes over time is common theme shown across all of the human ancestor
fossils. You can see it just in the skulls. Of course there are debates about where everything fits, they don't have the complete picture
You can clearly see the cranial capacity slowly increasing over time. Now think about how experts that have been studying fossils for decades look at
No need to continue. Every fossil found is a link. Just imagine how many more will be found in the next 50 years.
