    Oh my god. I bet car salesmen just love when you walk onto the lot.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    This is a really cool find. I just looked it up - it was published this week in Science. On the cover.

    I bet Science Friday on NPR will have something on it.

    What the real finding here seems to be is that they have an array of skulls, all from the same time, and all a bit different because of age, etc. But the features are similar to a few different species found around the world - China, etc - that have been tentatively classified as different species. But this finding shows that Homo Erectus was probably the dominant, worldwide (old, world, natch) species of proto-humans. So the H. Heidelbergensis, H. Rhodesienses, etc. are probably just variant forms of H. Erectus.

    I think there still is a thought that the species somehow died out and bottlenecked after evolving to Homo Sapiens who didnt come out of Africa to repopulate the world until 70k years ago (.07 million years). Gotta wonder how that happened...

    Spud successfully trolled a bait thread. It was awesome.

    One does not "believe" in evolution. You either accept it, based on evidence and facts and data and research, or you choose to be deliberately ignorant and not accept the overwhelming proof.

    The older I get the more I come to believe that people aren't necessarily ignorant by not accepting evolution. They're being dismissive of evolution but not ignorant. Who is ignorant? Well, the general religious masses. However, I have serious doubts that the general clergy members and priesthoods do not have an understanding of evolution. The Catholic Church has all but given up on trying to attack it. Even some Protestant denominations have come to accept it. All have done so without giving up their belief in god. However, I understand why some still fight against evolution. They have an honest belief that if human development is left up to something as seemingly chaotic as evolution - then what is there left for their god?

    It is the village that is medieval, not the skulls. No one thinks the skulls originated in the middle ages.

    I am struggling to act like a religious guy here. How am I doing? Any good or is it the case where the true me cannot help but prevail?
    and Satan planted all the fossils we've found just to fool us.

    right?

    Ever wondered why, WHYYY LORD ALMIGHTY your "fossils" look so devilish?!?

    scary fossils - Yahoo Image Search Results

    Or why do you always find them buried deep inside the ground where the devil reigns?!!

    hades god of underworld - Yahoo Image Search Results

    Think about it?! You scientists are so smart and yet you cannot seem to link the most obvious things here! If you go down to see the devils work well HEY you may actually find them!
