So how do explain hair loss? Why did early humans lose their hair and then hunt for fur to keep warm?
It was the humans in Africa who lost their hair.
It was the humans who immigrated to Europe who hunted for fur to keep warm.

If the population in Europe were unable to hunt for fur, one of two things would have happened.
Either they would have grown their fur back, or they would have frozen to death.

Yup.
what changed the color of their skin and hair and facial features?
Different climates favor different skin colors.
We see evidence of that even today.
Black people in the United States suffer from vitamin deficiency more often than White people.

As for the hair and facial features, I admit that I don't know.

Pft, you answer my questions first, I asked for evidence, present it. Then I will address one of yours.... and with this post you just compounded my request for evidence. Now you have more to provide evidence for. You are making the assertions, I am just asking for evidence. Requesting evidence cannot, by definition, be an assertion, that would be circular logic, or as we call it, division by zero error.

apparently the government believed in it enough to use it in the cold war...(remote seeing etc.)

What were the neanderthals doing in what is now called Belgium? How did they get there if all great apes originated in Africa? Can you fill in the gaps in your theory?

I started to say "350,000," since that is the estimate of the number killed in Hiroshima.
But what did President Truman say afterward? He said, "We may be grateful to Providence."
The Japanese thought they were under the protection of the magical emperor when they went to war in 1941.

The Germans, Brits, and Americans thought they were under the protection of God.

50,000,000 people killed in that war.

Where was prayer?? Where was God??

Don't forget Nagasaki...near 200,000 I think.

Well, many people who died then were brought back to life by paramedics claim that they went to Heaven and met one of their ancestors. Their bodies were still on Earth, but their soul traveled to Heaven for a short time.

I would say one way to prove that souls exist and hat they can depart from their bodies and then return to it, is to be put to death and then brought back to life by paramedics. Then when you experience the after-life, you'll have the evidence that soul exist which you're looking for.

I believe in the existance of souls, so I don't need to go through this process.

No, that's a conspiracy nut's "theory," they looked into it, it was never used because there was no solid evidence to support it and it had demonstrated to be inaccurate. The projects were scrapped because they produced zero results beyond that of wildly guessing.

so now you believe in any claim made by anyone without requiring any evidence at all. We know what causes the hallucinations often called NDEs, it's all very basic neurology actually, very basic, as in high school level.

Divergent evolutionary branch. It's not "my" theory, it's the only theory that explains why organisms evolve, and it's the only theory that explains how this evolving effects the populations. The only gaps are in your comprehension and study.

You don't think "interbreeding with Neanderthals" is not wild guessing? No one has directly observed them.

Just wondering...

If man could evolve from nothing...who's to say 'god' or a 'divine being' could not also have evolved from nothing?

The only valid science are the ones we can do direct observation with such as the evolution of E. Coli unless you are some sort of bacteria that kills people
