Um, might want to check your bible of naturalism there. That statement is no longer even endorsed by the priesthood of Darwin. That was all based on some fake sketches and long since debunked by everyone.


Which statement?

Didn't you mean, Homo neanderthalis? www.counterbalance.net... They definitely had larger brains than modern humans. Homo erectus had a brain size of approximately 900 cc vs. 1350 cc for modern humans: www.archaeologyinfo.com...

Thanks for that info. I was under the impression that neanderthals had a smaller brain than humans. If they had larger cranium capacities it could have been occupied by extra fluid and space, still leaving them with a smaller brain.


I've been thinking a lot about this lately and I now think that evolutionists could have evolved from neanderthals.


But I know I didn't.

Good grief! Post a topic about evolution and it's guaranteed to bring out all the creationists! Sorry, but I don't buy it.


This discussion is about human evolution, not whether or not (insert deity of your choice) created the world in 7 days. There are other threads debating that very topic. I came here because I was interested in what the OP had to say (good post, by the way
). As a scientist, I'm annoyed by these religious intrusions and want to have a serious discussion about the effects of diversity on the evolution of populations. This means, I like data; not unfounded statements that promote the abandonment of critical thinking. I can't believe anything you say if it can't be tested and reproduced in a reliable fashion. Religious statements aren't testable. Evolution is testable and can be exploited in predictable ways that are useful to us (i.e., manufacturing vaccines).

Your beliefs may comfort you but they are not useful to me (unless you can provide some universal, practical applications derived from religion that I may have overlooked). Please feel free to ask questions or provide scientific references which pertain to the subject at hand (modern human evolution) but please, don't try to change the subject.

I love people who know what they're talking about. Maybe you should watch the discovery channel, salt of the earth. But then again, it wouldn't say the world is only 5000 years old or that jesus is the savior of humanity, so I guess any evidence of evolution they showed to you would probably be dismissed as blasphomey, and propaganda created by the evil scientists to shake your faith, wouldn't it?

This is pretty misleading. All of the examples given in the OP are not "evolution." They are just changes in gene expression. Kind of like breeding dogs. Nothing NEW; merely different breeding habits making different genetic aspects more prevalent.
More bad science.


That is evolution.


No it isn't. It's variations within "kinds" or "species" as a result of the genetic code. The original male and female dog where created with all of the genetic blueprints for all varieties of dogs that we see today. Same goes for other "kinds" of species.

*LOL* You mean, those ones that claim everyone will evolve into "beings of pure Light" within a few years?
Everybody except for those that fight it - those will develop Morgellons.


Yeah, I fully understand your clear sceptism, I must admit.

Still an interesting article, though. Let's just hope that it will not fall into the hands you mentioned, and be distorted into unrecognition. But, probably it will.

As I stated a moment ago, this is just gene expression. Or have we gone so far off the deep end to consider standard breeding, evolution? This has absolutely nothing to do with "evolving." Thats just a label pasted on to make it all look pretty. People see this and think, "Golly gee, I know thats true, must mean we DID come from that little rodent we have foot bones of!" Excessively dishonest and leads many into some really bad science. Population diversity and the intermingling of previously remote ethnic groups is all this is about. Yay, my poodle and my grayhound just had puppies! EVOLUTION!

Thanks for catching that. Must have been a repy by someone I have on ignore. But don't you know, EVERYTHING is evolution now. It's kind of like how a lot of religious people attribute everything good to God, even if there is a perfectly logical reason. Oh, wait....it is religious people attributing to their god. They just use different terms.

I have watched the discovery channel nearly every day since it first came on the air. They talk like evolution is a proven fact, when in FACT it is not. I laugh it off as entertainment value and try to glean what I can from their bias evolutionist programing.


They would have a lot more credibility if they would show the evidence and give both scientific explanations for it, and let the viewer decide. The viewers decision will confirm whether he/she descended from neanderthals or not.

Mortal Monk, I don't mean to discredit you, but that theory is little more than a shot in the dark. If humans, for whatever reason, evolved into the Zeta 2 Reticulins ("Greys") What need would we have to come back in time from the future to abduct and perform bizarre experiments, that which left our ancestors left mentally unstable? Especially since we'd most likely still have detailed records on nearly all aspects of our humanity. It -could- happen, but I highly doubt that's the case. Many of the ET species we have catalogued (supposedly) are actually very human looking.

I'm not religious. But I believe humans that do good either have a selfish motive for doing the good, or they are moved by the Spirit of God to do good. I have not found a human being yet that would do a completely unselfish act without crediting God for it. If they don't credit God for it, then they did it so they could feel better about themselves or achieve some notoriety for it. To do good in order to bring glory to God, is the ultimate good.

John, I highly doubt homo sapiens evolved from homo neanderthals, but I guess it's a possibility. I've watched discovery since it came out, too, and never once have I seen anything claiming such a statement, in fact, I've seen many programs claiming that we were mostly likely the leading cause of extinction of our terran cousins.

Regarding the statement on breeding, there were originally many species of canine, where as to this day, technically there is only a single specie of homo sapien. The largest differences among our ethnicities are melanin (an obvious adaptation to climate), difference in ear wax (an obvious adaptation to climate), and slight differences in bone density.

I like how you say "I'm not religious" and end your paragraph "The ultimate goal is to bring glory to god." Do you think before you type?

You understand that the classification of fossils into species is largely opinion? If we didnt have greyhounds and poodles today, but found fossilized remains, do you really think they would be classed as the same species? Of course not. Yet they are. Think about that. Think abou the difference between opinion, speculation, and fact.

This evolution stuff is lame... never get what you really need. Tell god to go screw his worthless "sperm" adjustment. Tell that fool we need telekenisis!


The stuff we need is possibly within our hands, providing science serves everyone. The telekenisis, and telepathy are the absolute most critical advancements we can make, and they would ensure the emergence of a far better more civilized world, or split the race into those who love power and the power of love and equality. Aside from dna work scientists can do to enhance this, we can do this ourselves, by practicing locally in groups and doing this with our children.

It's wishful thinking to suggest that a thread about a research group comming up with an interpretation for evidences which is tailored to evolutionists (and convincing people that can't think for themselves) is not going to bring out people who care enough to inject a more rational, logical, and reasonable view of the same evidences.

I'm not religious. You don't have to be religious to believe in God. Religion is man trying to reach God. God reached out to me first.

The article did go a little into how different races of humans are actually evolving away from each other instead of mixing. They even said that australians have thicker skulls.

My appendix was created by God.

Evolution is a LIE! Why dont we see half monkey-half men walking around right now, you know, evolving. We dont see it happening now, because it never happened in the first place! I didnt come from a chimp and neither did you!
