It just dawned on me this evening. Modern humans are nearly biologically identical to the earliest humans. Evolution takes too long for any significant changes to have occurred over the last 100,000 years.

But somehow, these early humans, who did not even have a spoken language, much less a written one, possessed brains which with almost no evolutionary change, would be capable of developing not only spoken and written language, but all of modern science.

How does a mutation create a 100,000 year leap in a species, in a way which that trait will not even be start to be exploited for 90,000 years?

And how do you conclude that early humans did not have spoken language ?
