When we date fossils we really don’t date fossils. It is the sediment they are found in that is dated. This poses a problem as sediments can be disturbed by all sorts of natural events including earthquakes, strong winds, volcanic eruptions, floods, ancient stream beds, strong storms, comets, asteroids, meteors, etc. Just because we find a fossil or bone in a particular sediment does NOT mean it is as old as that sediment. It may be older or it may be younger.
When ancient human ancestors died are you trying to tell me predators and birds didn’t carry off some of their bones and drop them somewhere possibly in older strata?
I STRONGLY suspect that decay rates used in dating techniques have NOT been consistent over the eons of time and that’s why we get all these fantastical ages!
The climate we see on our planet today has NOT been the climate of the past. Climates have changed over the course of time as has the land, water, and air. For us to assume that ancient times were like today’s times is foolish to say the least.
Homo erectus, according to macro-evolution, emerged in Africa around 1.89 mya and went “extinct” somewhere between 143 kya and possibly 30 kya. Erectus was adventurous and a risk taker to say the least. Erectus used fire and was intelligent. Erectus migrated out of Africa into the Levant, Europe, Asia, Far East Asia, Java, Indonesia, and Australia. The landbridge between Alaska and Siberia has existed many times in the past including during the time of Erectus. To believe that Erectus never walked across that new land and into the Americas at sometime during their million years plus existence is unbelievable! Cold climate is not a reason for Erectus not doing this. Erectus was in the area of Beijing, China and northward in Siberia. Yet, we are to believe that Paleo-Indians from Siberia walked across that landbridge 20 kya and were the first humans to do so? Further, all sorts of animals and birds came across the landbridge so why wouldn’t Erectus who was a hunter-gatherer following the food supply?
Plenty of people in the Americas have found stone tools that resemble those made and used by Homo erectus. Evidence of this ancient human ancestor being in the Americas has been found at Calico Hills and in Mexico. Native Americans speak of large (“giant”) humans in various places around the Americas who were unlike them. In fact, their descriptions of these “giants” SMACKS of H. erectus features! In fact, many of the ancient peoples of the Americas were not as large as people are today so a hominid standing near 6 feet tall would be considered a “giant.” No we are not talking Goliath here!
So called “out of place” artifacts are found everywhere yet they are ignored. Why is this evidence not followed wherever it leads?
Why are some younger strata found UNDER older strata with no evidence of disturbance?
Why have we found modern looking human skulls in Pliocene strata dated at 1.5 million years old when it is held that modern humans only came about about 200 thousand years ago? These finds are ignored and the public is not even told about them anymore because they challenge evolutionary theory and our dating techniques! Examples: the Olmo, Castenedolo, and Calaveras skulls et al.
How come you can look at different people and CLEARLY see features of Homo erectus or Neanderthal or even Australopithecus or Cro-magnon in them? Aren’t those features from interbreeding and not evolution?
Who were the white people who visited, conquered, or taught Native Americans long before the official arrival of the white man in the Americas?
Why are there black skinned people such as in India who have no genetic similarity to Africans?
Why are the Americas so “special”? I mean prehistoric ancestors were everywhere EXCEPT in the Americas until the arrival of the Paleo-Indians. Prior to that we are expected to believe humans were not in the Americas which, frankly, is a CROCK!
Could it be that Homo erectus, Neanderthals, etc are believed not to have been in the Americas because academia is simply not looking for their remains? Why is there no academic or research funding for such a venture?
The famed Louis Leakey left his work in Africa and came to the US (Calico Hills) fully expecting to find fossil remains of ancient human ancestors just like he found in Africa. Why did Leakey think ancient human ancestors had been in the Americas? He must have had a reason! Sadly, he died not long after arriving and so we may never know his reasoning fully.
Isn’t it a bit arrogant for modern humans to make claim that we are the only remaining human species living today when, in fact, the NORM has been that several species of ancient humans COEXISTED? What makes us so “special”? Have all these ancient human ancestor species really gone extinct or were they ABSORBED via INTERBREEDING by modern humans who, frankly, LOVE SEX more than anything?
Why does science no longer follow the evidence wherever it leads? What are we afraid of finding? Why do we now attempt to make the evidence fit our hypotheses when it is supposed to be the other way around?
Theory is we shared a common ancestor with the other great apes and we know this via genes and DNA. In fact, we share about 98% of our genes with Chimps. But, we also share a great number of genes with PIGS! Does that mean we share a common ancestor with PIGS too????? Did we evolve from PIGS not apes?
