Human Origins

These wouldn't be technological. Perhapsrepparttar saddest aspect ofrepparttar 127612 whole story isrepparttar 127613 slow loss of technology it implies. Ebu Gogo seems to have been a descendent of Homo erectus, also known as Java man, who reachedrepparttar 127614 island about 840,000 years ago. This was almost certainly something that required boats, which seem a pretty human-level technology.

But because Flores is so far from anywhere that only boat-users or very strong swimmers - like elephants - can reach it,repparttar 127615 mammals there seem to have shrunk to cope withrepparttar 127616 lack of food. The tiny hominids hunted a race of dwarf elephants, and ate for preference their babies, whose charred bones have been found inrepparttar 127617 cave. So they had fire once. They had tools, too; and presumably language. But their brains had shrunk to a quarter ofrepparttar 127618 size of ours.

The Ebu Gogo recorded byrepparttar 127619 villagers had forgotten what language was for; they used no tools, and ate their food raw. At some stage, perhaps, their brains had shrunk so much that they were no longer truly human. The moral seems hard to escape. What makes us human is not our moral qualities. Ultimately, it's a question of getting enough to eat to growrepparttar 127620 brains that are big enough for morality - and, indeed, genocide. * Andrew Brown isrepparttar 127621 author of The Darwin Wars: The Scientific War forrepparttar 127622 Soul of Man and Inrepparttar 127623 Beginning Wasrepparttar 127624 Worm: Findingrepparttar 127625 Secrets of Life in a Tiny Hermaphrodite. He also maintains a weblog,repparttar 127626 Helmintholog (http://www.thewormbook.com/helmintholog/). (1)

The day after I postedrepparttar 127627 above I found that science now proves mamals were not only living far longer ago than we thought but they were evolved enough to be eating small dinosaurs. This makes it possible to speculate about an even older cultured mammal on earth as well asrepparttar 127628 probability that earlier hominids were more evolved than we thought.

The FR ( Flawed Reason ) Theory

Written by Dr Kedar Joshi, PBSSI


Continued from page 1

FR theory thus states that (some) logical / conceptual paradox/es do ( probably ) exist and are unresolvable. For example, in case ofrepparttar problem of creation,repparttar 127611 problem is meaningful but its solution is even logically / theoretically impossible ( which is an incomprehensible state of affair ).

FR theory forms a major part of Superultramodern Science (SS).
