    It is complicated, so no surprise some just want to characterize it as "picking and choosing".
    It's not "complicated".

    The OT is in many ways a completely opposite of the NT.

    Yet they're both in the same book.

    Very much a yin and yang. (Not really a coincidence either in my opinion.)

    Is god an all loving and all forgiving god, or is god a violent and vengeful god?

    All depends on which part of the bible you chose to defend your position doesn't it?

    This isn't really the venue for a theological discussion, but again you're oversimplifying something that is an involved field of study. It is a common misconception among nonbelievers that OT and NT are at odds.

    Lets hope anthropologists are not researching climatology. But it would not surprise me if they were considered experts just for being scientists and signing the IPCC's list of paid employees.

    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Stop trolling.
    He wasn't trolling, and he didn't "bring in" anything that wasn't there. The OP himself baited the exact response mak gave. It was the OP who brought in religion, from the get-go.

    And yet some believe the above is all just a fairy tale .....

    I think that is why they call it "Faith". Perhaps, and I am not thinking for them, they believe in the message, and God, but not the literal interpretation of the Bible.

    Don't ask me . . . I don't have the answers.

    That means for you to accept this skull isn't a hoax, you have to accept that somehow at least 1.8 million lost years occurred between Adam and Eve and Jesus. Why would the bible magically omit 1.8 million years? How could any society, much less the jews, survive 1.8 million years?

    Then you'd have to admit that Adam and Eve looked something like Australopithecus.



    Which then would require you to believe that god was somehow unpleased with his first models of humans, destroyed them and created hundreds of new versions until he finally got it 'right' about 6,000+ years ago.

    If you can fit all these things into a nice, logical model, then I applaud your mental gymnastics.



    As you can see above, the history of the homo genus spans millions of years, which no matter how you count it, doesn't match with the biblical lineages traced from Adam and Eve. Either they weren't actually the first humanoids god created, or there's a massive 1.8 million+ year gap in the bible and the lineages are just wrong.
    Adam and Eve are not described as the first humanoid.

    #1) Clearly - that depends on who you're talking to.

    #2) What are they described as?

    I don't care what people think. I am fine that people believe man is 6000 years old (or what ever the number is) with 2 caveats

    1) Don't expect others to believe what you do

    2) In public school teach best available science and scientific theories in science class.
