From the article posted ... NOT THE FREAKIN HEADLINE!!!!
Quote: Scientists who dated and analyzed the specimens — a 1.44-million-year-old Homo habilis and a 1.55-million-year-old Homo erectus found in 2000 — said their findings challenged the conventional view that these species evolved one after the other. Instead, they apparently lived side by side in eastern Africa for almost half a million years.
The Theory of Evolution has these two species one following the other!!!!
In their report, Dr. Spoor and his colleagues wrote, “With the discovery of the new, well dated specimens, H. habilis and H. erectus can now be shown to have co-occurred in eastern Africa for nearly half a million years.” The fact that the two hominid species lived together in the same lake basin for so long and remained separate species, Meave Leakey said in a statement from Nairobi, “suggests that they had their own ecological niche, thus avoiding direct competition.”
Again, this statement goes against the theory of evolution, because it destroys the vertical graph!!!!
The new findings, Dr. Lieberman said, highlight the need for obtaining more fossils that are more than two million years old. In addition, he said, they show “just how interesting and complex the human genus was and how poorly we understand the transition from being something much more apelike to something more humanlike.”
Again, current statements that the theory of evolution cannot be proven!!!
No wonder its easy to get some of the morons in the world to believe a freakin Ape miraculously became Man ... All you guys read are freakin headlines and then proceed to debate with only a superficial understanding.
