quote:When people have such a staunch view because of religion they then offer no reason to be flexible, to them , it goes against doctrine which would then mean that they would have to re-evaluate their whole belief system.
quote:Originally posted by MunKerrrr maybe a stupid question but.....is it widely accepted that we all evolved from the same place and time? i realise we have evolved over a long period of time but its just there are some really significant differences between some humans who have existed geographically quite close to each other for some time. Sorry to go off on a tangent with this but you seem to know quite a bit about the subject.
quote:Originally posted by geckoit depends on how strict you are about what is "human". our species is not quite the same as it was 200,000 years ago, 40,000 years ago, or even 1,000 years ago, changes are always taking place. but i do think the primates that could first be classified as our human species began in africa and moved outwards, dont the fossil records agree? if human habitats in africa are dated 200,000 years ago, in europe 40,000, and the americas 10,000, this would only logically follow.
quote:what is human though? neanderthals are believed to have been able to, and maybe did, breed with our current species. i guess this doesnt mean they were the same species though, as ligers, wolf-dogs and muels exist because they are close enough genetically to breed but are still considered different species. but there are things to consider.
