Creationists beware: The following article talks about human remains of greater age than Creationism accounts for.


For everyone else: Isn't it amazing! They keep finding earlier and earlier human and proto-human remains.




World's Oldest Human Remains Found in Israel





Africa may not be the birthplace of modern man after all.


Israeli archaeologists digging in caves  east of Tel Aviv have discovered eight human teeth dating from 400,000  years ago, which may be the earliest traces of the human species.

Fascinating! Not enough to kill off the "out of Africa" theory in itself (since they could be anomolous) but certainly posts some delightful questions.

It seems that some of these incredible findings out of Israel are latter discredited.  Like the osuary of Jesus's brother.


It is interesting and it definately caught my attention but I would want to wait to know more and have more scientists verify,

Well, obviously, it'll need to be tested and verified and so on, that goes without saying. But if it's real...

Exactly.


It is a bit ridiculous how archeology and anthropology gets hyped when excavations happen in Israel. Mankind needs to grow up and treat this piece of land like any other piece of land...


Well, some do. I guess just the "monotheistic half" of the planet is affected here...

tl;dr

Ah, but Roo, as the only two humans living there were thrown out, there are no human remains to be found in that garden.Surprised

On a serious note. In archeology and anthropology, there is a great difference between "human" and "humanoid."

A lot of women have encountered men claiming "big swords."  I'd tend to be skeptical.

*******

"Wesley told the early Methodists to gain all they could and save all they could so that they could give all they could. It means that I consider my money to belong to God and I see myself as one of the hungry people who needs to get fed with God’s money. If I really have put all my trust in Jesus Christ as savior and Lord, then nothing I have is really my own anymore."

Most women know, men with small feet are lying about having long swords, flaming or not.
