Politics

Some 7 million years ago our human ancestors split from the Apes that would go on to become our closest living relative the Chimpanzee. For the next 5 million years our ancestors would have physically looked little different to modern Chimpanzees  as well as in terms of behaviour and circumstances as there was a very gradual process of evolution of physical abilities such as walking upright in addition to still being good at climbing trees. Even as recently as 2 million years ago, some 3 million years into the age of the Australopithecine's, they would not have looked that different to modern Chimpanzees, living a precariously frightened existence constantly falling victim to predators, and where brains were of comparable size to Chimpanzees, about 1/3rd the cranial capacity of modern man.


So when did Australopithecine's evolve into the Genus Homo that is all of the species of humans of the past 2 million years? Find out in this video:

2001: A Space Odyssey

This video is basically the plot of "2001: A Space Odyssey", which is a movie and not reality. Macro evolution is a fairy tale. The fossil record does not support it.

Human Evolution

+Christopher Marlowe

Hi yes, originally I had the opening scene from 2001 as the background to this video, my voice over matching the footage perfectly, it looked great! but immediately on upload it got blocked in ALL countries, so I had to dig out some footage I took of chimps to get it uploaded. But Kubrick based his scene on the work of Raymond Dart in the 1950's, the KIller Ape theory.

The fossil record does not support this ?

You clearly have a preset mindset and are not willing to look at the evidence, for recently there has been an explosion of finds such as Malapa boy and most recently the Homo Naledi, a truly epic find of over 1500 pieces of bone from the Rising Star cave.

However the point I am making is that human evolution for the past 2 million years or so has been taking place in the brain, IDEAs / Meme's that i will expand on in my next video in this series, that will bring us to the present split in our species currently underway. Can you guess what the split is ? :)

Best
