August 15, 2019 Reply Big Red And yet with those big brains and dexterous hands look at what we have achieved as a species? A great deal of absolutely nothing valuable, but a great deal of destruction of other life forms way beyond our brief. We are two things at once very stupid and also very smart. Perhaps it would better to say that the vast majority of people are quite stupid for what ever reason and the great celebratory rantings that periodically get trotted about how wonderful humans are, never takes into consideration all the failures.For example if we were to Draw a mark for all of the successes and a mark for all the failings of humanity, which would have the highest tally? The bad aspects would council out all the supposed positive achievements. If we did that we may find time to pause for reflection on just how overrated we are.

Great vid though, thanks. August 18, 2019 Reply TheStarflight41 Speculation is the new science. Macroevolution is the greatest scam in human history. The mechanism claimed to drive it, namely, natural selection acting on random copying errors in the DNA is patently absurd. Ludicrous really. The prerequisite for becoming an evolutionist is to reduce the complexity of life to that of Tonka toy. Then everything is hunky-dory. So what have the so-called scientists been doing all these decades? Have they been burning the midnight oil trying to figure out how the mechanism can write in the DNA the staggering amounts of new precision information necessary to build millions of new, hypercomplex body plans? No …. I don't think so. They swept it under the rug and fired the maid to keep the theory alive… because of power, pride, money, and atheism. Or in a word… corruption. Generation after generation of precious minds have been indoctrinated. Pathetic squared.

What you are presenting is interesting enuf, but all old-school, quackademia. Increasing evidence is showing the possibility that we modern humans were genetically modified by visitors from other worlds, and were not at all evolved from monkeys. Much of what Darwin suggested, especially his ideas of macro-evolution has already been debunked. Besides this, the three differences that separate us from other hominids are completely secondary to our ability to transcend ourselves and everything else in Divine Realization. That is what truly distinguishes us from the other species of creatures on this planet.

It seemed kind of boring at the time. Now, thanks to the hard work and perseverance of a few thousand people the story of human evolution has grown to a magnificent and ever growing body of fascinating science. Darwin had it backwards: not "survival of the fittest" but the deaths of the unfortunate that is the driving force. It is no longer just dusty bones but a tragic, glorious, touching view of the lives of thousands of generations of survivors. A nicely proportioned overview, thank you so much!

August 30, 2019 Reply András Agócs Recently a direct ancestor of Lucy was unearthed not far from where Lucy was found by the same Yohannes Haile-Salassie mentioned in this video. Forensic scientists were able to reconstruct its face, making it the earliest human ancestor that we have a good idea of what it looked like. It also appears that australopithecines are not our direct ancestors, but rather a separate lineage closely related to us.

August 30, 2019 Reply Lance Lake In my opinion this entire documentary is pretty false. Many members of the scientific community and the fossils are telling lies. Not a single australopithecine was able to walk upright. On top of that Lucy's bones include one of a different ape and her pelvis was sculpted from her other bones. But have you asked yourselves why it took a cell 100's of millions of years to walk on land but only a few for these supposed human ancestors to walk, then wouldn't there be some suspicion. I believe lucy isn't a missing link but a waste of space in our textbooks. She is shown to have traits much like humans when are brains are larger, stronger, faster, and better in every way shape and form. That's why apes are in a zoo and not us. August 31, 2019 Reply Theodore Sweger Please don't take this wrong but I cannot help looking at Darwin's forehead, I think he may have had a advantage in the brain department. Just saying. August 31, 2019 Reply Kevin Fleck Did ARDI exist during the Jurassic era. I ask bc to me.. his thumb like climbing big toe was used for tree dwelling. However, I think whatever (asteroids) killed dinosaurs caused a massive fire burning most plants into a tar resin(crude). Leaving all tree/plant dwellers homeless. This flight response away from fire aided ARDI the most bc he could rationalize not only to run like most species did however he ran with thought of long-term hiding…i.e. caves?? Hence caveman. As ARDI's fled they began helping and guiding all to what little safe havens existed. Thus, cave dwelling for many years without sunlight led ARDI to US!! Creating physical changes but most importantly the ARDI's recognized communal dwellings benefits for all. Thus, beginning mankind's reign on earth! September 1, 2019 Reply Mathew Thomas Bipedalism assumes that somehow or other, the ape or chimp started walking up right and developed bone structure to suit the new method of locomotion. We have here the typical “chicken or egg” paradox. Which came first, bipedalism or the bone structure such movement requires? How did these monkeys have their genes modified? There were no gene therapy clinics in those days! Did the genes mutate knowing that the apes wished to walk on tow legs or did the genes mutate because the monkeys commenced walking on two legs? Why are paleontologists coming up with far fetched theories on genetic changes to bone structure without a shred of evidence and touting it out as science and research?

September 13, 2019 Reply Larry Fisher People must realize that what we have is Darwin's "THEORY' of evolution. There is still zero proof. All we have are different species. The problem is that the difference from species "A" to species "B" is so great that it would have to take at least 20 species between them to show that they "evolved." There is a theory out there (I won't go into it at this time), which is gaining more credibility which explains everything. Like how can many different species evolve at the same time, and to have this happen multiple times? It also explains the extinction of some species too.Why did the apes stop evolving? Where did the Neanderthals come from. Did we "REALLY" evolve?There's ancient knowledge out there that we can't reproduce today. At least with the so-called technology we are told they had. The easiest explanation is the right one. It has evidence to back it too. We didn't evolve, we mutated. September 14, 2019 Reply Larry Fisher What's the evidence of evolution? Is it Lucy trying to walk? There could have been "real" humans around back then and she was just trying to do what they did. There are OOPARTS at least 300 million years old. Could it be time travel?

And there it rests; a very intriguing theory with so little evidence that it takes a lot of faith to fill in the gaps. This is becoming more common in scientific theories looking to the past. It starts with a vision that people believe and become emotionally attached to and they work backwards to find evidence to support the theory based on the original belief. It is another form of religion. If there were a new or different theory that was the basis a completely different outcome and conclusion would be made from the very same evidence.

Darwin’s theory was only speculation, not fact. Everything discussed here had a beginning, the Earth and the Universe. None of this supports Evolution, which, as some claim, has no beginning. Where is your EVIDENCE. October 11, 2019 Reply Anzay Warid We analyse soil and rock samples between two layers of volcanic eruptions and ensuing ash to look at the age of fossils found within them. But somehow we assume that those fossils have lain there undisturbed for millions of years, whereas volcanic eruptions and earthquake upheavals can cause fossil bones to become reburied miles away from their original burial locations. These upheavals can also change the depths at which fossils can become reburied. In addition, the fossil remains and parts of say an Ardipithecus will likely not remain together as complete fossil skeletons when upheavals occur. So what I am saying is that the evidence that we have from fossil records is not only scanty, but also usually incomplete and likely to have moved away from its original location due to earthquakes, floods, wind erosion etc. In conclusion I want to say that judging the age of an ancient fossil by calculating the age of the surrounding rock or soil sediment is no guarantee that a fossil found therein is the same age.However, I am no paleontologist or scientist, and would therefore request someone to throw more light on the subject; in other words what else is involved in determining the age of a fossil apart from the radio-active disintegration of the sediment where a fossil is found?Comments welcome.
