Skull find rewrites the history of man

By T.K. Randall

A number of human skulls discovered in Georgia have put conventional views on mankind's evolution in to doubt, suggesting that humans spent a long evolutionary period in Eurasia before moving back to Africa almost 2 million years ago.
The conventional view of human evolution and how early man colonised the world has been thrown into doubt by a series of stunning palaeontological discoveries suggesting that Africa was not the sole cradle of humankind.

We just believe in a higher power Yes, and it is the belief itself that is unscientific. It doesn't matter if you believe in Evolution, Microsoft, Printers, or Walruses. All belief is unscientific. If anything it's just arrogant to claim outright there's no God. Science only claims that, from a scientific basis, there is no god. Few atheists claim there is no God from a literal basis, but rather from a scientific one.(There is no scientific evidence for god, and thus we shouldn't accept his existence.) I enjoyed your analogy. The problem is, the universe does not look designed, at least accord... [More]

you quote some one who claims it is arrogant to just claim there is no god. and then proceed to say there is no god. Daniel, I have explained this. From a scientific perspective, there is no God. I speak from a scientific perspective. From a literal perspective, it is impossible to say whether there is a god or isn't. this is why i say that if they had a body of bigfoot freshly killed you would say it was a fake. This is nonsense, daniel. how many scientist claimed that the world was flat and the earth was the center of the universe for how many hundreds of years. The evidence they collected a... [More]

Daniel, I have explained this. From a scientific perspective, there is no God. I speak from a scientific perspective. From a literal perspective, it is impossible to say whether there is a god or isn't. This is nonsense, daniel. The evidence they collected at the time led them to accept such a position. Note that it was the CHURCH, and not the scientists, that believed these positions and prosecuted anyone who didn't. This is why you aren't a scientist. Quite frankly, nobody cares about whether you consider Pluto a planet. It is like me claiming that I consider you an HP Photosmart D74600. It'... [More]

that's right i disagree with you so you can now break down and start calling names. i am not a professional scientist. but i can look around me and see that there is far more to life than just an accident. everything fits together just right. the moon, the sun, the location of the earth. all of that is just an accident. you do know that mars spends part of it's year in the goldilock zone don't you. And every puddle looks at it's hole and thinks "Wow! This hole was made exactly for me to fit in it!". Take a step back for a moment. Zoom out from your house, your town, the United States, the Eart... [More]

I did not call you a name. It is absolutely impossible to argue with you. As soon as I reply to something you say, you ignore it and change the topic. Now, of course, you are completely off track, a... [More]

Then how can they say that there is absolutly no god. Then how can they say that life started purely by chance. I don't mean scientists or real ones. I mean the ones on here. To pick one theory over another and jam it down someones throat in school as fact. I think that around UM you're generally told that science and religion aren't necessarily incompatible, over the centuries there have been many religious scientists, and so on. I suspect that the reason you keep forgetting about this is that someone where you are keeps telling you that evolutionists don't believe in God. Where ever you get ... [More]

And every puddle looks at it's hole and thinks "Wow! This hole was made exactly for me to fit in it!". Take a step back for a moment. Zoom out from your house, your town, the United States, the Earth, the Solar System, the Galaxy. Think about all of the millions of different stars there are, and all of the millions of planets and all of their variations. If life is a natural occurrence then of course, it's only going to arise in the places where conditions are just right. If the conditions aren't right then life wouldn't arise in the first place! what are the right conditions. the conditions w... [More]

Where ever you get this impression, it isn't here. ------------------------------------------ From a Peking Man and homo floresiensis standpoint it makes sense that part of evolution happened in Eurasia. I'm a bit fuzzy on what these scientists are claiming. They can't be sayi... [More]

Guyver, after looking at your other post, it does seem like you have some misconceptions about what science is. It should be important to understand that the conclusion that the Holocaust happened is a SCIENTIFIC one. It was reached using the EXACT same method the conclusion that all life on Earth has a common ancestor was. It was reached using PHYSICAL evidence that is no different in application than the evidence for common descent. If Common Descent is "just a theory", the Holocaust is "just a theory". If the holocaust is a fact, than Common Descent is a fact. You cannot have double standar... [More]
