Learning By Looking: An Animated Timeline Of 7 Million Years Of Human Evolution

December 6, 2018

7-million-years-of-human-evolution.jpg

This is an informative video created by the American Museum Of Natural History detailing 7-million years of human evolution, based on the fossil records found in present-day Africa. I actually learned several things watching it. Still, it's crazy to think that even after 7-million years of evolution that none of my friends can start a fire or make a decent weapon out of sticks and rocks. "Um, GW? Aren't all your friends dogs and cats?" Your words hurt me. And for the record, I did have a dog who once turned the stovetop on and set a dress on fire. "Why was there a dress on the stove?" Let's just say It was the first time my girlfriend ever tasted my famous scallop, pea and spaghetti arrabbiata -- need I say more? "Yes." And I spilled the sauce all over her, are you happy now?!

Keep going for the video, unless learning hurts your brain.

Thanks again to hairless, for two very different but equally informative tips in a row.

    Homo Sapiens, Homo Erectus...blah blah blah....I'm waiting for the day of Homo Superior.

    (I want X-ray vision for my power...!)

  • GeneralDisorder

    No word on when the globalist lizard people evolved, huh? Pfft!

  • Talon184

    Florida

  • Deksam

    So why are there still monkeys and apes if they evolved to us???

    A hip bone and toe bone and a whole bunch of artists depictions, Got it.

  • Talon184

    The theory states that monkeys, apes and humans all evolved from a common ancestor and are, therefore, related, not that we evolved from apes.

  • Deksam

    Theory is only theories.

  • Talon184

    "A scientific theory is a well-substantiated
    explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of
    facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and
    experiment. Such fact-supported theories are not "guesses" but reliable accounts of the real world."

    ...just sayin'

  • Deksam

    But still just a theory till the next one comes along.
    But your are very welcome to believe you came from a long line of distinguished apes.
    Merry Crispness!

    I didn't say I believe anything of the sort. I just clarified what a theory is.

    Frankly, I am very accepting of the fact that I, as a mere human being, will never have the knowledge, wisdom and/or intellectual prowess to fathom the greatest mysteries of our universe and the origin of our species.

    Anyone who truly believes they have such enigmas completely figured out is, frankly, arrogant. (That's not intended as a jab at you...I just believe that to be true in general).

    Is evolution theory true? i have no idea...but there is a lot of evidence supporting it. Is creationist theory true? Again, no idea, but as a believer and supporter of Christianity, I certainly find it to be an attractive concept.

    I'll never know for sure and therefore, I have no "beliefs" on the matter. It's just an interesting concept to consider either way.

  • Ed Hopkins

    That's like asking, "Why are there still Catholics if Catholics became Protestants?"

  • Deksam

    Theories vs Theologies

  • Tigerh8r

    I think Homo Ergaster is a typo. I'm pretty sure that's Homo Aunt Esther.

  • Douchy McDouche

    Funny how intellectually creationists are still stuck at the beginning of that 7 million year evolution.

  • Munihausen

    And to think, we have all of about 5% of this fossil record.

    Don’t camp in the woods.

  • Ollie Williams

    Ken Ham is going to have something to say about all this, and sound like an idiot.

  • Stephanie A. Fowler
  • Wooder

    **THUD** sound of my bible hitting the garbage ;). Now this science makes more sense.
    This is not the most attractive family tree though

  • Talon184

    I think I saw my mother-in-law somewhere in that lineup
