We already know that the bible had problem telling time,
Now going back to the subject,
Acording to modern views, the first apelike beings appeared in the Oligocene period, which began about 38 million years ago.
The first apes thought to be on the line to humans appeared in the Miocene, wich extended from 5 to 25 million years ago.
The earliest known hominid is Australopithecus, the souther ape, and is dated back about 4 million years, in the pliocene. It stood 4 and 5 feet tall
and had a cranial capacity of between 300 and 600 cubic centimeters. It was similar to humans but with ape like features.
One branch of Australopithecus, was the Homo habilis, around 2 million years ago in the begining of the Pleistocene period. His brain was between 600
and 750 cc.
From the Homo habilis came Homo erectus and the Java men and beiging man are in this group, about 1.5 million years ago. This stood abut 5and 6 feet
tall, and his cranial capacity was between 700 and 1300cc. this was almost human in apperiance, and resided in Africa, Asia, and Europe until 200,000
Paleonthologists believe that modern humans Homo sapiens sapiens emerged from homo erectus.
As for the bible please we all know that you can not go against facts.
