Taiwan Fossil May Have Come From Unknown Human Species
Tue Jan 27, 2015
Maybe it is from the legendary "Homo Giganticus"? I have thought for a long time that Asians are a mix of Homo Sapians and a resident population decended from Homo Erectus. There is some compelling evidence for this. But the discovery of Homo "Hobbit" indicates there may have been more than one resi …
Man's Best Friend: Dogs Arrived Late to the Americas
Mon Jan 12, 2015
I think they probably came with the first wave, also. There is probably a much smaller distribution curve in the earlier migrations and if they settled anywhere near the sea, the remains are deep underwater. We just haven't found them yet.

Check out the details of the excavation of the Sumerian city of Ur, supposedly the home territory of the tribe of Abraham. At about the 4,500 year strata there is about an 18 ft deposit of silt under which lies more building activity. Definitly a large flood of some type. I think the legend of the f …

Mon Dec 16, 2013
My thinking is that early humans hand development, in parallell with shoulder development, was brought about by the need to throw rocks, not make tools. I think that for a very long time this was the main method of group protection and for driving predators and scavangers from a kill. Even a small g …
