It was during the Cambrian that animals with hard shells first appeared, enabling a rich fossil record to begin.
20 km northeast of Kingston that may date to the late Cambrian. The tracks occur in laminations that appear wind-rippled, indicating that the strata were deposited in an eolian (sand) dune field, probably in a marginal-marine setting.
The first animals to walk on land are unknown. There is evidence that soft-bodied arthropods and slug-like animals visited the land as far back as 510 million years ago, in the Cambrian era, leaving behind mysterious tracks called Climactichnites and Diplichnites. These tracks are mysterious because no fossils have been found of the animals that made them. Some of these trace fossils are as wide as four inches. Perhaps these animals did not actually breathe air, and only slimed along on land for short periods as a way of moving from pond to pond.
Any of various invertebrate animals of the phylum Cnidaria, characterized by a radially symmetrical body with a saclike internal cavity, and including the jellyfishes, hydras, sea anemones, and corals. Also called coelenterate.

Thank you for the links & info.
You make some good points.
I have heard of an alien race that resemble felines-called the lion people.Also referred as 'Lyrians' and responsible for seeding life on many different planets.
"lyrian is the mother race of off all intellegent races. Lyrians were around well before other races, and were responsible for the seeding of many many cultures and races."
here is a link for some speculative information-
I have always been interested in werewolves in folklore & fiction.
very fascinating creatures and ideas surrounding their lore.
Also,cannot forget all the Indian legends involving skin-walkers.edit on 9-2-2011 by PerfectPerception because: (no reason given)
Professor Henry T. Greely, director of the Center for Law and the Biosciences and leader of the committee that considered the proposal, told the San Jose Mercury News, "We concluded that if we see any signs of human brain structures . . . or if the mouse shows human-like behaviors, like improved memory or problem-solving, it's time to stop."
Not upset. Attempting to relieve you of your dependency on myth.
yes, I would argue I saw God. And I saw nothing. No form. No anything. At most, a light that "wasn't really light" to put it simply.
And yes, I would argue I know more than you. Though no, no the "rest" of you, considering it seems you stand alone. God would not have a physical form. he wouldn't even walk on two legs. he wouldn't even have legs. he'd be nothingness. The darkness and the light. God would not be physical. Maybe he would take on a human form here and there, and that's Jesus in my book. But God would not be some mere humanoid form.
Jesus is not a human hybrid. He is not two halves. He is fully human, and has the the soul of God, fully God. He is both. Hybrid implies halves. To which he is not. In the physical world, he is fully human. His DNA would be that of an ordinary man from the middle east. His genes filled with the same evolutionary mutations and errors as the rest of us. His flesh fully ordinary to the maximum ability to call it ordinary. His soul, however, would be God's. He would not have the shattered mind we all have, with a conflicting conscious and subconscious, and thoughts that stray from God's will. For how can God's own will stray against himself.
Hybrid is a term invented because of an inability to comprehend the separation between reality and what lies beyond. The world that cannot be observed and has no proof. only faith.
I watch plenty of videos. And I judge them. The fact that you can post a video has no relationship to you being correct. it means you know how to copy a link and past it in the right format.
Also your slave argument is flawed, considering that both the black man and white man are not that different at all. Nor is one more or less civilized. The only difference is the one holding the whip and the one holding the chain. They are both as civilized as they choose to be. They are both as intelligent as they choose to be. They are both as "human" as they choose to be. The only difference between each other is who has the whip and who has the chain. The possessors of which have changed places all throughout history.
There are no facts for religion. There is no proof. There is nothing you nor I can do to prove each other's point. What I can tell you is this. You are stuck in the physical world. Your gods must exist in understandable terms. They must follow human reasoning for demand and desire. Your gods are no different than man. Mine is. My God doesn't want anything but to love him. My God doesn't follow human logic. My God is not stuck in human comprehensible terms. My God is not dependent on humanity, nor is his thoughts and desires like man's.edit on 10-2-2011 by Gorman91 because: (no reason given)edit on 10-2-2011 by Gorman91 because: (no reason given)
Myth and religion are not the same, you know. And it is quite clear you rely on myth. Faaaar too much for doctrine.
I experienced nothingness. No input to the brain. No sight, not sound, now taste, no touch. Nothingness. Utter disconnection to reality. And there I saw a light that had no light with a voice that had no voice. It was almost all of the above you mentioned. It had no need for form. You clearly require a form to your myths and gods. I don't. I met a being whose form was not physical. It had no need for flesh. It had no need for tool not technology. It is. That's simply all it is.
Yes, throughout human history humans have recorded things in their own image. Congratulations. You have discovered the homocentric fallacy. The anthropomorphic principle. The need of man to make things in his own image.
This does not prove any kind of humanoid alien nor god. Take a look around. Which one of the 100+ million organisms of Earth look like man? An ape? Nope. It's got our fact, that's about it. A penguin? It walks upright. That's about as close to human as you get.
Once you leave humanity, you get a very wide picture of nature. And the facts are simple. Nature doesn't pick any one thing as its favorite. it picks what works for the condition at hand.
Of course I cannot link you to God's website to show you what he looks like. But guess what, neither can you.
The very fact that you demand I prove your baseless claim just adds to the insurmountable proof that you suffer from extreme anthropomorphic fallacies.
Then you go into your normal routing of yelling out everyone's wrong and you're right. Congrats, further fallacious thinking and arguments.
Do me a favor. Tell me. How can you know, without a doubt, from physical proof, that anything human-like exists beyond Earth. Myth is not proof.
And how do you know those things etched weren't done by a young child in a first grade of whatever school was back then? it is not constant. it could be anything. it could even be the insane ramblings of a dieing man with a tumor. In no way can you know.
I rely on faith for one thing. God exists. He is good. That's all that faith plays a role in with my life. it has no place anywhere else.
No. Not orbs. And not only that, there's no proof orbs are anything but photo manipulation natural and man made. What I saw was no orb and no shape. No form, no geometry, no anything. Complete and utter nothingness filled with infinite.
No, There is no "unknown" dna that caused us to be human., There is 3% of our dna that makes us human. The rest is immunities to viruses, prions, digestive services, etc etc. Nothing is special about human DNA. And as I said, the same place for a foot in one species can be the same place for tree bark in another's. You cannot just press "mix all" and get a viable species. Nor can you mix something from another world with different dna. Different dna produces different chemicals. it's not like converting java to c++. It's like turning a tank factory into a hello kitty factory. Different materials. CHO inb one chemical converted could give you H2O and a whole new function.
Genetic fusion? mammals are famous for it.Non mammals have dozens of unfused genes, called micro chromosomes. Mammals fused these. It's perfectly natural, and every mammal has it.
I gave up hope at that point. There's no point in reading on. If you're arguing that human shaving a fused gene makes us aliens, then your whole argument is just fail.
Very simple. one paragraph. Under 500 words. What is your undebatable undeniable proof to your argument. Are you even physically capable of staying on topic and stating it straight forward?
