African skulls find throws story of human evolution into disarray
news.scotsman.com...

So there is nothing to link homo erectus to humans. Humans didn't evolve from apes or animals of any kind. I mean look, they can't even name what Homo Erectius evolved out of itself let alone naming what it evolved into. Humans did not come out of Homo Erectus.

More about why man made finds place humans here even before the apes

Did you read the entire article, or did you just read the first 3 lines and though "YES, this will prove that evolution is wrong!" ?


Let me explain :

This is what Dr. Meave said :



Dr Meave Leakey, one of the authors of a paper published by the leading journal Nature yesterday, said: "Their coexistence makes it unlikely that Homo erectus evolved from Homo habilis.


Notice how he uses the word "unlikely" not "impossible".




Both species must, therefore, have had their origins between two and three million years ago, a time from which few human fossils are known, and the hunt is on to find Homo erectus's real ancestor.


Here he talks about their origins and how they probably evolved in a time period about 2 - 3 million years ago. He also states that human fossils (although not many) have been found.





"But we know a bit more about the process of human evolution [as a result of this research]. It is very much like the evolutionary path of any other animal, with lots of side branches and not a single straight line that you see in cartoons."


Read it


It's like todays chimps and gorillas. Although they look similar, they evolved seperately and had little contact with each other.

The first 4-8 lines or so of the article were not written or said by any of the experts but by the author of the article, and we know how they like to dramatize their stories here and there

Why exactly was evolution necessary?
And why are you stuck with thinking that it happened on Earth?
Where is the proof? There is none. There is no evidence that one species ever evolved into another. The only thing evident is that there are many different similar creatures that existed at apparently different times, and many that co-existed.
Why exactly do most people refuse to think outside the box?
Why exactly do most people automaticly toss out the idea that Earth was in fact colonized by people from other worlds?

Who were these people and where did they go?
who were they

And look at the skulls of these Egyptian mummies. They are of a different species that modern man. Where did they go?
mummies

Please provide proof of what you think to be true then.

And to the OP, try not to get so excited everytime there's a problem with scientific theory, we' re allowed to be uncertain and make mistakes. It's religion that's determined to cling to outdates concepts

Nobody came to the presupposition that "Evolution was necessary" - it was discovered, a theory used to describe what we were seeing in the natural biology and in the fossil record. It's the only thing which happens to fit the facts, and no other theory has even come close to replacing it.

Why are we stuck thinking it happened on Earth? Because every shred of emperical evidence from MANY different fields point to it being true.

No evidence of evolution happening? It's still happening right now! Type "observed examples of speciation" into Google sometime.

Why do people refuse to think outside the box? They don't. Most of science's greatest achievements were made by people who thought outside the box. Einstein certainly wasn't thinking inside the box when he came up with his theory of relativity - but to date, nobody has been able to prove him wrong based on the observable facts. However there is absolutely nothing academic to gain by making baseless statements which don't fit the evidence.

Why do people scoff at the idea that the Earth was once colonized by aliens? Because there is no emperical PROOF of it. Anywhere. Aliens very well might HAVE colonized Earth at one point, but even if they did, science cannot make that statement because there is NOTHING to back it up. And genetics certainly doesn't show any evidence of alien tampering with our DNA. There is NOTHING in our DNA which shows evidence of tampering. Hell, 95% of our DNA is absolute JUNK and studies in mice have shown that you could take that 95% junk DNA out of our bodies and there would be absolutely no difference.

Giant Skeletons, confirmed hoaxes. Those mummy skulls? There's nothing out of the ordinary about them. The elongated skulls? Cranial manipulation by ancient civilization. (manipulation of bone structure is still done to this day by many tribes). Starchild skull? It has normal pairs of X/Y chromosomes and mitochondrial DNA confirms it had a human mother (mitochondrial DNA is only traceable through the mother) and she was from a known Native American tribe.
