Researchers: Ancient human remains found in Israel

JERUSALEM –

Israeli archaeologists said Monday they may have found the earliest evidence yet for the existence of modern man, and if so, it could upset theories of the origin of humans.

A Tel Aviv University team excavating a cave in central Israel said teeth found in the cave are about 400,000 years old and resemble those of other remains of modern man, known scientifically as Homo sapiens, found in Israel. The earliest Homo sapiens remains found until now are half as old.

sad that Israel has succumbed to Darwinist pseudoscience.

Looks like this blows about 200,000 years of evolution....actually, it would be multiples of that...

Love that it's in Israel.

The next one they find will be a million years old. The likely cause of death: Man-made global warming.

The accepted scientific theory is that Homo sapiens originated in Africa and migrated out of the continent. Gopher said if the remains are definitively linked to modern human's ancestors, it could mean that modern man in fact originated in what is now Israel.

Found it right next to Adam's Apple!

And when you lift the apple you find the lost copy of Obama’s birth certificate. It’s been through the same test ‘aging’ process as this body I guess.

Oh, this article sucks, big time. Whoever wrote it doesn't kow the first thing about hominid evolution and I think that the researchers in Isreal played on that lack of knowledge.

First, to just say "Homo Sapiens" means nothing. There were four sub-species of Homo Sapiens: Homo Sapiens Sapiens (Modern Man), Homo Sapiens Neanderthalensis (Neaderthals), Homo Sapiens Steinheimnemsis and Homo Sapiens Cro-Magnon.

So, which sub-species did this particular tooth come from? The only way it could change the picture of evolution is if it came from Homo Sapiens Sapiens (Modern Man) since that sub-species arrived on the scene much later than the other three. If it was one of the other three sub-species, it becomes nothing more than an interesting find.

what exactly are you insinuating? That evolution is “pseudoscience”?

Southern Baptist seminary president Albert Mohler said it best: Evolutionary theory stands at the base of moral relativism and the rejection of traditional morality. If human beings are not made in the image of God, and if the entire cosmos is nothing more than a freakish accident, morality is nothing but a mirage and human beings–cosmic accidents that we are–are free to negotiate whatever moral arrangement seems best to us at any given time. Human life has no inherent dignity, morality has no objective basis, and we are alone in the universe to eat drink and be merry before our bones join the fossil record and we pass from existence. — Albert Mohler, 2004

I’m sure the Arabs will soon claim that these teeth belonged to the first Palestinian.

So the pastor is saying that the fossils found were faked?
That the scientists who dated them lied? That the universe is only 6000 years old?

I’ll take the scientists’ word for it before I’d believe a Southern Baptist.

I wonder if this tooth was found by one of Harold Cook's descendants.

Could this prove that our ancient ancestors had teeth? A lot more information needed to justify the headline, but certainly an important discovery.

Evolution is just BS to say the most of a lie. Can’t believe our schools actually teach this with the new discoveries in DNA which puts evolution in the sh*t can where it belongs, no debate, no argument, evolution is bunko science.

Can you cite specific research which supports your claim?

Why don't you site your claim to whatever you believe or think I'm amazed at and disprove me? You saw my post today? Four days after I wrote this? Are you searching for a debate? A debate on what specifically? On evolution? On teachers teaching evolution with few giving alternative views of teaching evolution? The anthropic principle or creationism or a small course just on DNA and how it may support or may de bunk evolution completely?

I'm grasping here. What specifically am I supposed to site?

Is this site a start?

Beat me to it. Reminds me of the saying oft quoted around here ...

To get an a conservative mad, you tell him a lie. To get a liberal mad, you tell him the truth.

It would appear that many posting here would take offense to this saying now. ;)

Exactly how were they dated?

Carbon dating that’s not accurate past a few thousand years?
(not to mention carbon 14 that’s been found in “billion year old” diamonds)

or radiometric dating that recently showed newly formed rocks from volcanic eruptions to be “billions of years” old?

Evolution is more of a worldview than a “science”.

Agreed MrB. Have no idea why that person picked me for a joust. Evolution is not a fact, it’s a belief with more holes than a sponge in the “theory.” it’s more a worldview like the hypothesis of “Climate Change.”
