The age of the Hadar jaw, 2.33 mya, was determined by potassium-argon analyses of 80 grains extracted from volcanic ashes located less than one meter above the fossil." *Trivia: - Genesis - vyamr alhym nash adm btslmnv kdmvtnv vyrdv bdgt hym vbavp hsmym vbbhmh vbkl-harts vbkl-hrms hrms al-harts: And [v] God [alhym] said [amr]: "Let us [n] make [ash] man [adm] in [b] our [nv] image [tslm], after our [nv] likeness [dmvt]; and let them have dominion [rdh] over [b] the fish [dg] of the sea [ym], and [v] over [b] the fowl [avp] of the [h] air [smym], and [v] over [b] the cattle [bhmh], and [v] over [b] all [kl] the [h] earth [arts], and [v] over [b] every [kl] creeping [rms] thing that creepeth [rms] upon [al] the [h] earth [arts]." *Trivia: - Genesis - vybra alhym ][ at-hadm btslmv btslm alhym bra atv zkr vnqbh bra atm: So God [alhym] created [bra] man [adm] in [b] his own image [tslm], in [b] the image [tslm] of God [alhym] created [bra] he him [avtv]; male [zkr] and female [nqbh] created [bra] he them [avtm]. *Trivia: - Genesis - vybn yhvh alhym ][ at-htsla asr-lqch mn-hadm lash vybah al-hadm: And the rib [tsla], which [asr] the LORD [yhvh] God [alhym] had taken [lqch] from [mn] the man [adm], made [ash] he a woman [ash], and brought her unto [al] the man [adm].
With water plentiful, scientists think it was a place where primitive life could have thrived by feeding on rocks and minerals similar to tiny organisms on Earth that hide in caves and underwater vents. P.] Around 3.5 billion years ago, Mars underwent a shift and raged with volcanic activity. [NP] The bones appear to have been cut and smashed some 3.4 million years ago, the first evidence of stone tool use by Australopithecus Afarensis, the species best known for the dubbed 'Lucy,' says researcher Zeresenay Alemseged. .'] chip away at beliefs on human ancestors ['The Kenyan site was discovered one day in July 2011 ... The brain case, the lower jaw with most of its teeth, both collar bones, many vertebrae and ribs, the fingers, both kneecaps and the delicate bone that holds open the throat, called the hyoid, are all present. The fossil is understood to be 500,000 years older than anything previously discovered south of Tanzania.
NASA's older rovers Spirit and Opportunity found geologic evidence that water flowed during this time, but it was highly acidic and considered too caustic for life. P.] Scientists thought much of the planet had been awash in acidic water until Curiosity earlier this year found signs of an old streambed near its landing site with a neutral p H. [....] The oldest confirmed stone tools are less than 2.6 million years old, perhaps from only a little before the emergence of the genus Homo." [Based on: News Services article (Find rewrites history of tool use), p. [....] The fossil-hunting team happened upon the skeleton in 2000 in a region plagued by extreme heat, flash floods, malaria, wild beasts and occasional shootouts between rival ethnic groups. Researchers estimate the child may have been 3 years old. It is said to show that our ancestors had greater genetic diversity than previously believed and were spread far wider across Africa.
Adam's date, consequently, falls into a post-35,000 BC category.
But the Neanderthalers and others preceded this era - so how could Adam be said to be the 'first' man? " [Based on: Laurence Gardner, Genesis of the Grail Kings, p.
