Million Years Ago Homo Erectus
1,040 wordsFor years, the evolution of human beings has been researched and studied. In today's society, there are many different interpretations on creation and how humans came to be what they are today. Through much scientific evidence and studies, there is now physical proof that human beings may have evolved from ape-like creatures. Even with this, there are still disputes in the paleo anthropological field of whether or not this is true. Still, many choose to believe their religious creation stories w...

1 5 Million Homo Erectus
1,480 wordsGlynn Isaac Defines "the Homebase Hypothesis" It has been argued since Darwin's day that the great apes were man's nearest living relatives, and as evidence emerged during the late 1960 's of the hunting propensities and simple tool use of chimpanzees (Goodall 1986), anthropologists found more and more reason to presume similarity of behavior between modern (e. g. , Pan troglodytes or Pan panics) and ancient varieties of hominids (Tanner 1981). Still, modern humans are not chimps. Substantial di...

Side By Side Homo Sapiens
377 wordsWhen cultures change, collide, converge and connect, a variety of things could happen. It could be from peaceful connections and or links, or very violent fight and struggles. As we see from history, many cultures have met each other. If the cultures were peaceful, they lived together and intermixed. But if they were violent towards each other, the cultures clashed and usually the dominant people took authority over the recessive. Such examples could be seen 500, 000 to 750, 000 years ago in sou...

Million Years Ago Survival Of The Fittest
723 wordsLike the biblical hero Adam, a single cell let part of it's body become another being, now one of a pair. Like the heroin Eve this duplicate created more of it's species. These multiplying cells joined together into a legacy long in running. The history of our evolution is dark, we fumble for answers yet still need more light to unlock the mysteries beneath. One must remember that when speaking of the theory of evolution one is not only referring to humans but to other species of the kingdom Ani...

Darwin explains that eyebrows and lower orbicular muscles were used mainly for facial expression, Morgan agrees and also has another reason.

Top Of The Skull Nucl Torus Homo
519 wordsSTATION 1: Fossil 1 displays characteristics of Australopithecus aethiopicus of West Lake Turkana, Kenya. This skull shows the obvious characteristics of a very sharp sagittal crest along the top of the skull, a very wide skull in the cheek area, and an extremely pro gnathic lower skull and jaw area. The cranial capacity also appears to be smaller, suggesting that it is of the earlier hominids. Fossil 2 shows eyebrow ridges and a slight sagittal crest consistent with Homo erectus.

Homo Sapiens Intellectual Abilities Social

Children at the age of two and a half years solve social problems much better than the apes do, however, in solving physical problems chimpanzees and orang-outang's perform just as good. This actually proves the cultural intelligence hypothesis, according to which outstanding intellectual abilities developed because of the social life-style and under the requirements of complex and flex...

2,025 wordsEvolution vs. Creationism The fact that science and religion are two mutually excluding categories has been clearly illustrated, throughout the history. After Christianity became a an official religion in Rome, the ancient ideals of beauty and perfection, embodied in classical Greek and Roman sculptures, yielded to midgets, hunchbacks, lunatics and impotent's. The same thing happened in the intellectual domain, as well. Ancient science, which was a veritable science in most of its notions, was r...

Value Of Human Life Homo Sapiens
1,088 wordsHuman Beings' Values (1) The idea that human life is sacred and, therefore, is more valuable then the lives of animals, for example, became a moral dogma in Western society, thanks to the influence of Christianity. The origins of this religion lie in old Hebrew utilitarian tradition, which considers a human being as one big digestive organ. In Old Testament there are countless accounts of brutal animal sacrifices that were suppose to please God. It is the same tradition that imposed its sick mor...

These factors are also intertwined with the methodical process of evolution, which, although often cruel and merciless, is nonetheless beneficial to any species of animal, including, and perhaps especially, humans. Without violent conflict causing the death of the weak and survival of the strong, it is highly unlikely that we, Homo Sapiens Sapiens, ...
