"That would be 500,000 years older than remains from a 1997 find that prompted the naming of a new species: Homo antecessor, or Pioneer Man, possibly a common ancestor to Neanderthals and modern humans"

this is an amazing find. Its weird how this has been around for a supposed 1.3 million years and it has only been in the last 150 years or so that man has evolved in way of technology. did humans not really advance until just recent and it took 1.3 million years for this to happen???? what are your theories

no one wants to talk about this?

I think it's a very interesting find myself. I've alway enjoyed the study of evolution. I guess the date would place it somwhere in between the Homo Erectus finds and the Neanderthals. The missing links in the evolutionary line are slowly being bridged. Good post, and thanks for the link.

np i just thought this would get more attention but this part of the forum isnt populated much. it would be great if more bones were found

It would appear the the settlement by early man of the caucasus was much earlier and widespread than once believed.

My theory is that we've always learned, and as soon as manufacturing techniques and scientific knowledge reaches a certain point, industrialisation pushes society forward a great deal, causing a chain-reaction of research, development, and implementation. The real progress started in the 1600s in Britain.

Yeah, some parts of the board are like blackholes where nothing is able to get out. It's too bad, because a lot of good post get overlooked.

yeah the 1.X million years of banging rocks together then BAM hit it with a spice weasel and we have computers and rockets in the relative blink of an eye.... with nothing at all in the 1.X million years... what a crock. I dont believe that for a second.

Thats because technology grows at an exponential rate. It always has and it always will. More technology means better technology so improvements are fast.

It is a shame that posts like this dont get as much attention as posts like, "I was chased by a giant beaver". I guess thats just what ATS is like

Good thread

Transistors were probably one of the most leading advancement in technology.
That too came about not long after Roswell.
Hey Oz! Don't dis the giant beaver! I haven't laughed like that in the longest, and believe me, I needed some levity. lol
