Lots and lots of nice dinosaur fossils of all kinds.

Not a single verifiable pre-Pliocene Homo Sapiens fossil. Not even a single pre-Cenozoic mammal larger than a small dog.

'Nuff said.
How do you date the layers? Using index fossils?

There are numerous finds described in the above article...if you can refute them then i would be convinced.

For eg-

Upon learning of this discovery, J. D. Whitney began his own investigation. He
learned that Hubbs was a well-known citizen of Vallejo, California, and a former State
Superintendent of Education. Whitney got from Hubbs a detailed written account of the
discovery, which occurred in the Valentine Shaft, south of Shaw's Flat. Whitney stated: <p>"The essential facts are, that the Valentine Shaft was vertical, t

Ahh, you misspelled "I" again. "We" means everybody, and I'm sure you can find plenty of people here who do understand evolution, and they may take offense at you determining what people who are not you know or do not know. So again, your sentence should read "Evolution as I currently know does not explain anything... I do not know for sure." [grammar sic] --Jaylemurph

I was being polite by saying "we" instead of I.
Seems like you know all about the origin of species and how it happened.You seem to have deep penetrating knowledge of how one species transitted to another, it's like you were almost there seeing it happen.
If not then you can become part of "we" as i said it.

There you go again with your one liners.

I challenge all those who know a lot about evolution especially human evolution or anthropology to give their esteemed opinions about the evidence discussed in the above link.
(hopefully your opinions wont be based purely on mainstream reviews of the Book written by other peoples, please read the link above and a systematic refutation is welcome).

But Amalthe talked about intelligence, not human intelligence.

And what's "far away" : there are biologists who consider corvids (especially ravens and also crows) to be inbetween humans and apes concerning intelligence.

.
Sure, i should have defined what i meant by intelligence better. Some would say that ability to count is a sign of intelligence, and birds and dophins and some other species sure have this ability, but in general i was referring to the intelligence that would enable consciousness. But in any case, my point was that if you remove humans from earth and leave creatures to develop, there is very, very small chance any other species would develop brains. Looking at the history and enormous time span species lived on earth, developing conscious intelligence just didn't happen enough to be usual evolution path.

The evolutionist will tell you:
1."No no no you don't understand how evolution works.."
2.Evolution doesn't have any predetermined direction i.e the animal/man cannot choose which part will evolve or develop.
3.Survival of the fittest governs the course of evolution as the random mutations are selected by Natural selection.

But more or less the doubt you projected is right and evolving a brain and consciousness is the biggest challenge the evolutionists face, i.e they cannot explain it.
I do understand how evolution works, but i allowed myself way to little space and too much simplification to explain what i meant. But i am glad that despite my shortcoming in post, you understood the doubt i wanted to point out, that evolving a brain is huge challenge in evolution, and it just doesn't usually happen, even if you give more that enough time for specie to evolve.

There were numerous reports of human remains and fossils and signs of human presence in strata considered to be pre pliocene coming from anthropologists and scientists up until the start of the twentieth century or more precisely till the Java man was found, the link i gave above discusses these reports and finds.

The idea of a tertiary Man was not so fantastical as one would feel now.

Also what is interesting is the Assumption that Humans are the pinnacle of evolution i.e modern HSS is the last to arrive. They fail to contemplate that it could have been HSS that gave rise to the other hominids due to random genetic mutations instead of the other way round.

Evolutionist are still dying to find the "Missing link" between primates and humans lol.They dismiss the possibility that primates could have evolved from humans. On one hand they claim that Evolution does not have any direction and is spontaneous, but what they assert regarding the origin of species i.e the fruits of evolution is obviously progressive.

Here is an interesting link that highlights the evolutionist world view and how time and civilization is perceived as linear according to Judeo-Christian theology instead of cyclical according to ancient Greek and Hindu theology by modern historians.

Like I said, verifiable.

How does one refute something which hasn't been confirmed in the first place?

I'm not sure how tarring other, innocent people with the brush of your particular ignorance constitutes being "polite". Generally, however, the only time it's polite to use the royal we is when you're the head member of the English royal family.

There's not something you're forgetting to tell us about you, is there? Your majesty?

(hopefully your opinions wont be based purely on mainstream reviews of the Book written by other peoples, please read the link above and a systematic refutation is welcome).

As has been noted by others (including myself), your incessant reliance on Cremo and Thompson does not position your argument in a favorable light. As referenced under another heading, personally read the complete (unabridged) edition of this "work" shortly after its initial release some 20 years ago. The deliberate utilization of vagaries, unsubstantiated innuendo, and dated/less-than-qualified references was duly noted. Despite the facade, this is not a scientific work. Actually quite distant from such.

It may be at least reasonably speculated that the authors organized their "data" in such a manner as to present a sound introduction to their "proposition". Thus, let us look more closely at two of the initial presentations.

1) Lee/Sheguiandah - First, this site was initially excavated by Lee in 1951. Note how Cremo presents the "topic" (including innuendo).  Also note that he has (apparently) quite deliberately left out the more recent research by Julig and Storck (1991/2002). This case can essentially be reduced to two factors a) the early misinterpretation of the geomorphology of the site by Lee et al and b) the typology of the lithics recovered. In the case of the lithics, these projectile points are quite consistent with the mid-late Paleo/early Archaic period(s) in the region of concern. As such, these projectile points and the specific lithic technologies associated with their manufacture  allow us to place them quite comfortably in the post-Clovis Paleo/early Archaic period(s). Can elaborate if needed.

2) St. Prest - Once again, note the leading phraseology and innuendo. For example, Cremo would appear to imply that lithic technology is somehow relatively "recent" and /or a product of only the more "advanced" representatives of the Homo genus. This implied position is patently inaccurate and reflects an attempt to lead the uninformed reader to false conclusions. To detail:

a) The earliest documented lithic technology is known as the Oldowan. This technology is dated to at least as early as 2.6 mya. There is debate as to which representatives of the lineage were actually responsible for this technological advance. Both A. garhi and H. habilis have been suggested. However, there is substantial documentation for the utilization of the Oldowan technology by H. habilis post the introduction of this technology.

b) Which leads us to the emergence of H. ergaster/erectus from Africa. The utilization of lithic technology by this lineage is also well documented. This lineage has been documented as far east as Java by 1.8 mya and in northern China by 1.6mya. The presence of this lineage has also been documented at Atapuerca, Spain circa 1.2 mya. You will note the manner in which Cremo attempts to minimize the significance of the 1.2 - 1.6 mya dating. Thus, it is not at all unconceivable that the faunal remains recovered at St. Prest are the product of pre-sapiens representatives of the Homo lineage.

In short: The "works" of Cremo and Thompson are quite representative of numerous "fringe" tactics that have repeatedly been pointed out on these pages. The utilization of notably dated reference material, the (apparently) deliberate exclusion of more current research, and the literary application of leading/suggestive phraseology in order to "guide" the uninformed reader to an inaccurate "conclusion" are but a few of the reasons that the publication(s) by Cremo and Thompson are not professionally perceived to have any credible value.

Under other headings you have attempted to present yourself as a "scientist". One of the hallmarks of qualified scientific research is to be aware of the credibility and validity of one's references. This entails actually researching the methodology and documentation of said references.

If they did evolve, they would probably look something like the reptilian aliens which have been said to visit earth throughout the past.
