New findings undermine the man's appearance
13th August 2010 12:23 Inland
It is a startling discovery made in Dikika in northern Ethopien. It is quite clear after it was published in the scientific journal Nature yesterday.

Startling discovery
It is as if the discovery of an animal bone, which quite clearly has been cut by a sharp stone or a simple sharp stone tool. Animal bone is somewhere between 3.2 and 3.4 million years old.

And it is startling that no one knew that human abelignede ancestor (Australopithecus afarensis) is already at such an early stage could use a tool to o

An interesting find, a bone from an animal that have been cut in two, using tools are dated to be between 3.2 and 3.4 million y.o.
Untill now the oldest tools used by our forefathers and mothers, were dated to be around 2.5 million y.o.

Intersting because, by beginning to eat flesh in larger amounts, our forefathers began devoloping the proteins that enhanced their brains, so also the use of tools definded the beginning of ´Homo Sapiens´
No conspiracy - I know - but I find it wonderfull that every day we discover how little of what we think of as hard facts holds water, and wanted to share this with you.
Probably the earth still have many wonders to reveal to us.

It is as if the discovery of an animal bone, which quite clearly has been cut by a sharp stone or a simple sharp stone tool. Animal bone is somewhere between 3.2 and 3.4 million years old.

And it is startling that no one knew that human abelignede ancestor (Australopithecus afarensis) is already at such an early stage could use a tool to obtain animal food. The previously oldest known tools is dated to "only" to be between 2.6 and 2.5 million years old.

- It is really exciting, "says senior consultant in clinical genetics Peter KA Jensen from Aarhus University who is one of Denmark's only researchers in the field.

Meat is necessary
He stresses to the DR-News that just animal foods are the keys for the brain could grow and develop. And precisely the development of brain and use of tools has been the definition of the "modern" human Homo Sapiens.

There was therefore animal feeding to the genus could be developed from abestadiets A. afarensis to the tool-using creature, Homo habilis, who lived in the same area of Ethiopia 2.5 million years ago and so on until the real human Homo Sapiens.

History reinterpreted
- There is no doubt that the new findings provide an opportunity to reinterpret the perception of human evolution, says Peter KA Jensen Dr-News.

Until now that we believed that the development of Homininae to human and thus brain development occurred over a relatively short time because a climate change in eastern Africa where Ethiopia is located, forced Homininae to change his diet from being vegetarian to become meat-eaters.

The new findings show that the development has happened slowly over one million years.

Man cradle
- It does not disappoint. Nature never disappoints, says Peter KA Jensen, but we require reinterpreting historiography.

Tilgengæld so cements found that Ethiopia is well-cradle of mankind.

- It is the most important place on earth when it comes to understanding human history, "concludes Peter KA Jensen

I am VERY interested in this topic. I believe human beings have been on this planet a lot longer than conventional scientists consider possible. Humankind has lost almost all of its history. What do we know of our history -- maybe 1% of the truth.

This is certainly a fascinating Find!

Thankyou for your replies my friends, it is also something which interests me bigtime....
But obviously not enough to have seen the thread mentioned, already on the subject, so sorry for repeating :-)
