Narrow Darwinian minds beware...
After thinking about this for a while, I'm still amazed. Imagine if the human race were to flourish and genetically diversify in the same way the
other primates have. Evolution has been observed in the study of fossilized primates, so obviously there is a huge gap on any island that has been
landlocked for X number of years or evolutionary events.
I found this .gif animation of continental plate movemement at the link below:
I noticed that the islands east of Java (in this animation anyway) lie on a different continental plate than Java and Sumatra. Also, I noticed that
the Pink colored plate (Australia) breaks off from the mass continent around 80-90 million years ago. I don't know what this means, since it does
seem likely that there have been watercraft (island-hopping vessels) for thousands of years, so why was floresiensis so isolated? The locals knew of
them but when did they stop visiting? Perhaps floresiensis legends might be found among seagoing native australian tribes?
I saw on the History Channel that "Flat Faced Man" walked upright around 3.5 million years ago. If Abraham is supposed to have lived in 700 BC (and
there are no egyptian records of any biblical person prior to 650 BC) yet due to this one skeleton, we now have to reappraise the last million or so
years, isn't this find an indication that science has defeated religion, entirely?
