Starting with the Sumerians [...] every culture accepted for a fact that heavenly beings (Or Gods) had created Man kind - homosapiens- Some coincidence to be a "myth".
Evolution cannot account for the appearance of *Homo sapiens*, which happened virtually overnight instead of the millions of years evolution requires
with no evidence of earlier stages that would indicate a gradual change from *Homo erectus*
He appeared inexplicably some 300,000 years ago, millions of years too soon.
The scholars have no explanation. The Sumerians and Babylonian texts do, the Old Testament does. *Homo sapiens*-- modern man-- was brought about by the ancient gods
Former CIA official Victor Marchetti spelled out indirectly in 1979 "We have, indeed, been contacted......and the U.S. government, in collusion with other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public".
The ancient accounts tell us that these hybrid bloodlines, the fusion of the genes of selected humans with those of the "gods", were put into the positions of ruling royal power,
"God" are the aliens

It's strange, people keep reiterating that evolution can't account for homo sapiens, when several of their ancestors have already been discovered and show the same constant theme of slow change over time. What is the "sudden" change in homo sapiens that differs from their ancestors? Unless you are referring to 400,000+ years as "virtually overnight." The homo genus as a whole goes back 2.5 million years. But yeah, it's pretty much overnight that humans popped up.edit on 15-3-2012 by Barcs because: (no reason given)

Yeah, that's pretty wild. I just saw that thread. It seems like homo sapiens and their cousins were all over the place and dominated the world even during that last glacial period.

Starting with the Sumerians, the first great culture 6,000 years ago that spawned the Bablylonians, Persians, and Assyrians, through ALL subsequent "Intelligent advanced civilizations" and "non-advanced" indigenous cultures including the American Indians of North America, Mayan and Inca empires of South America, Aborigines of Australia, ancient Chinese and Hindu text scriptures from the Far East, Egyptians, of the Middle East, Dogons of Africa, and the Greek and Roman Gods of "mythology", every culture accepted for a fact that heavenly beings (Or Gods) had created Man kind - homosapiens- Some coincidence to be a "myth",
Evolution cannot account for the appearance of *Homo sapiens*, which happened virtually overnight instead of the millions of years evolution requires and with no evidence of earlier stages that would indicate a gradual change from *Homo erectus*. The hominid of the genus *Homo* is a product of evolution. But *Homo sapiens* is the product of some sudden evolutionary event.

Actually, they were not all over the place, and certainly did not dominate the world. Homo sapiens is the first abundant great ape species, and this only happened because of the neolithic revolution. It's only after that, that our numbers started increasing. Something like 5-10% of all the people that ever lived are alive right now.
The cerebral cortex increased tremendously in size over a rather short period thou, something like just 2,000,000 years. Goes to show that there was extremely strong selection towards higher intelligence and general ability to plan stuff ahead..

I feel that if evolution didn't completely siphon off all spirituality from the human being. It at the very least, wouldn't be half as ridiculuos to those who can't help but percieve it as such. There are so many unseen forces
in the universe that are evidenced objectively. That to consider any explanation of origins that fails to address and include mans undeniable spirituality ? At least for me ? Begins at a point of ridicule. For some reason that makes me very suspicious of this very young hypothesis.
What does spirituality have to do with evolution?

The problem with the 'alien intervention' idea is that humans have a genetic heritage that can be traced back much further than the '6000 years' you suggest. Even the Sumerians had precursors. The archaeological record is a hell of an alibi for human development without any alien gene meddling...
Our ancestor's ancestors are known. The Neanderthal genome has been mapped and reinforces the theory that we shared a common ancestor...
The progress we've made is recorded in the archaeological record. From stone hand-axes to military drones...our evolution is an endless series of 'baby steps' and adaptations to the environment and circumstances we find ourselves in.

Nothing . That's my point. But you turned the question around. To ask the question properly in your retort, it should have read. What does evolution have to do with with spirituality ? I agree evolution doesn't have to negate anything. So why do bigoted zealots of this new arrival on the world scene try to cram it down peoples throats ?
Are you really going to deny the hateful ridicule, of mans spirituality ? The insults that I myself have to look at everyday ? Right here on these boards even from you ? Because I choose to go with a belief system that best explains all of existence ? When evolution by it's own admission and definition doesn't even begin to cover it ?
I don't think evolution deserves ridicule. I think people who try to replace spiritual concepts with it are ridiculous.
I suppose we are on the same page then, in that regard. You can't replace spirituality with field of science. Acknowledge each thing for what it is. Science should not be a belief system, just as a belief system should not be science. Based on your previous argument, it sounded like evolution was wrong because it doesn't acknowledge the soul. Evolution isn't crammed down anyone's throats. All are welcome to study the field and attempt to falsify the evidence, but it hasn't happened. It all holds up to scientific scrutiny. I welcome, no I encourage you to believe anything you'd like. The only reason there is so much ridicule toward creationists, is because tons of them post blatantly false claims, and attack a field of science they know nothing about. Actions like that are worthy of ridicule because they are dishonest. I would never ridicule anybody because of their beliefs. Most creationists are rational, compassionate people that acknowledge the science for what it is and believe it makes god that much greater. Nobody should be ridiculed for their beliefs, but intellectual dishonesty has to be called out every time, so we can indeed deny ignorance.
