In the absence of these, we propose that their extinction was possibly the result of long-term demographic and genetic declines associated with an isolated island population.
The weakness of evolutionary theory can be demonstrated by the tautologies and circular reasoning that is employed to provide “evidence” for large scale evolution.
Even many evolutionists ruefully admit that this charge is undeniable with regard to the circularity invoked in dating rock layers.
Several previous attempts to radiocarbon date the Mladeč specimens directly have failed, but in the present attempt by using teeth as dating material reliable results were obtained.
The findings are now documented in a recent issue of Nature.
After the discovery was reported, a number of questions still remained. naledi had an unusual mix of ancient and modern traits. Now, Berger et al.—who include many of the researchers who were involved in the discovery of H. naledi fossils from a separate chamber in the same cave system.
For example, it had a small brain like the most ancient of human-relatives, yet its wrists looked much like those of a modern human. naledi—reconsider this question in the light of new findings reported in two related studies. provide a long-anticipated estimate for the age of the fossils at between 236,000 and 335,000 years old. These estimated dates fall in a period called the late Middle Pleistocene, and mean that H.
This time interval was from 542-520 million years ago.
This approach avoids the circularity associated with using fossils to correlate rocks, and then using those correlations to infer biological patterns…” (“Cambrian Explosion: New Timeline for Appearances of Skeletal Animals in Fossil Record,” , Nov.
It is now evident that a diversity of hominin lineages existed in this region, with some divergent lineages contributing DNA to living humans and at least H.
