200,000 year old Homo-sapiens was still very smart and well adapted to his/her environment. He made stone tools and traveled far across Africa. Many of his remains are found in Namibia, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, and other parts. We know he used ochre, probably for body ornamentation or ritual. Physiologically 200,000 year old Homo-sapiens seemed to be the same as us. Of course they weren't as smart, as they hadn't much experience yet.
Think of being born 200,000 years ago. You would have NO knowledge at all of how the world worked, what plants were good and what was poisonous, which animals were easy to catch and good to eat, no knowledge of germ theory and how to treat yourself if sick, no language to communicate effectively, just grunts and gestures. Of course these early hominids weren't ‘quite’ like us, but they weren't ‘NOT’ us.
Around 50,000 years ago Homo-sapiens seem to get a little smarter as his tool-kit became more sophisticated and his abilities seemed to expand. Many scientists believe this is about the time sapiens developed spoken language, although it is doubtful whether this will ever be proven.
Also around 50,000 to 60,000 years ago humans started traveling outside Africa and began populating Australia, India, Pakistan, the Levant and eventually most of Europe, the UK, the Balkans, and China. In other words; most of Europe and large parts of Asia.
In China, further South, and parts of Mongolia humans probably encountered some Homo-erectus and/or Homo-habilis groups, as these hominid had left Africa many many thousands of years before them.
In Europe, the Levant, and parts of Asia the humans encountered Neanderthals who had also left Africa thousands and thousands of years before. In the Levant is where some cross-breeding with Neanderthals occurred.
The history of humans and 'pre-humans' and the ancient world is rich and varied and extremely interesting to explore. The things our ancestors experienced and conquered are amazing. We went from freshly 'hatched' with little knowledge of anything, to being able to destroy our own birthplace with the pushing of a button.
So tell me RR, do you believe God started humanity sometime recently, or just started the process four and a half billion years ago and walked away??
Thanks for the "history" lesson but all that is pure speculation.

I'll remain skeptical.

Do you believe you breathe...for fun? What about eating? Do you believe you eat just because?
Are genes not real? Are they fictions, myths told to us by crazed researchers?
Try not eating and see how fictional biology is :) Or, if you get very ill, insist on using prayer only - tell the doctors they are crazy, none of that medicine stuff works, and you'll just pray yourself better.
(I don't recommend that, though, but it will be instructional for you)
No. I don't believe that *your* belief in biology is accurate.

When you have a "fact" that's based on some evidence and lots of speculation you have a belief.

Dark matter.

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2006/...

More dark matter.

Physics is saying it is there. You just can't see it.

Six times more dark matter than visible matter.

Imagine that.

Of course, you will not hear one Topix atheist revise their beliefs based upon physics that was based upon observations of visible matter only.

I posted earlier about our consciousnesses collapsing into the other half of our universe's circuitry and metamorphosis.

Don't believe everything an atheist has to say, or the proof they quote.

Perhaps you should do a little research about what's actually going on...9/11 was only a small portion of it. Here's a site that summarizes pretty good...read up!

In support of TT, I think it is pretty generally known, and understood, that the USA carries the most weight in the world, regarding international events, and the UN is basically a puppet of the USA. One of our Prime Ministers, too, won a Nobel Peace Prize for the initial work in setting up the UN, and he was the representative for the consistency where I was born and raised, and lived nearly 1/2 of my life.[that info is irrelevant to this discussion, of course].
No offense to Jews or Israel, but I don't think I would take something that they published as an unbiased opinion about world situations.

How humans acted 160,000 years ago is pure speculation, not fact. It's really that simple.

"consistency"

It's constituency.

There is nothing consistent about you but your Canadian self-righteousness, and sanctimonious sermons.

About 1/4 mile down the mountain where I live, there is an old country church that still has no air conditioning...in the summer they always open their windows during services. This evening, I'm setting on my porch and above the sounds of the rapidly flowing creek, where it's rained all week, the crickets and frogs, I can hear those old timers singing Amazing Grace in a' Capella. It's moments like these when I realize just how perfectly content I am without verifiable proof of God. I don't need it....

Hope each of you, regardless of what you believe, can find the simpler things in life that give you peace!
