SUNDAY REVELATIONS: Before man there was the spear!

A mystery in the Book of Genesis is now solved ..who did the children of Adam and Eve mate with?  We know modern man, that is us, evolved about 200.000 years ago.  It is hard to imagine us mating with dumb apes ..who wants to mate with a chimp?  But ..it now appears we had other choices ….

A University of Toronto-led team of anthropologists has found evidence that human ancestors used stone-tipped weapons for hunting 500,000 years ago — 200,000 years earlier than previously thought. “This changes the way we think about early human adaptations and capacities before the origin of our own species,” says Jayne Wilkins, a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Toronto and lead author of a new study in Science. “Although both Neandertals and humans used stone-tipped spears, this is the first evidence that the technology originated prior to or near the divergence of these two species,” says Wilkins.
