500 Million Year Old Fossil Found of Uknown Species Discovered

It might take a few years to determine what species the bone belonged to but it is always exciting to discover something new.

Careful Dryson, you're starting to sound like Varek with the innacurate post to go with your link.

Anyway, here's the corrected link:

Re: 500 Million Year Old Fossil Found of Uknown Species Discovered

I'm not certain why the link didn't work. Thanks for the correct link. I wish Varek was still here as he was one of the ones who I could have an intelligent conversation with instead of those who post links to movies or shows that have certain words they have taken from the thread. Too bad they are trapped in a canon world...I guess they will have to crawl around in their caves while the rest of us evolve and move on.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_evolution

Based on the Wiki Article humans have been around for about 2.5 to 3.0 million years with other life existing well before humanity came along.

You would think that humans and apes would have evolved right along with the rest of the species on Earth from the very beginning.

The timeline in the Wiki tells me that something must have happened that sparked humanity into life. Maybe humans were underground cave dwellers that followed the herds that supposedly moved between the land masses when they were still connected into the openness of the Earth above ground.

I can't find the article about the massive tunnels that dinosaurs used to cross the continents through.

But here is another article about small caves and passages that humans once used.

It could be possible that the reason why humans resemble apes in our early years where images show us hunched over is because humans once lived in crowded caves like the ones in the article that were connected to the larger tunnels where humans would emerge from their holes in the walls to ambush their prey.

As the continents split apart the tunnels filled with water causing the large and small dinosaurs to stop using them and move to the surface in order to hunt their prey.

As a result humans slowly went from being hunched over to standing upright.

If humans had evolved along side of apes then humans would never have been hunched over like we are seen in so many images.

In the image below you will see that humans progressively increase in mass and height. If humans would have evolved along side of the apes on the surface of the planet instead of underground then humans would have started out life at a larger size based upon the availability of space and food to grow, compared to an anaconda that grows larger the more it eats, instead of being limited to a smaller amount of food and a confined space which would limit a humans growth.

Dryson, clean up the markup in your post and avoid making sweeping insults toward other posters. Thank you.

They did evolve together, from a common ancestor all those millions of years ago.

No, they weren't Morlocks.

This is so profoundly wrong in misunderstanding the evolutionary process that it's inevitable that mockery comes about.

So maybe all of the small shafts in a pyramid when mirror on theirself would give us another map to dwellings deep underground where humans might have come to the surface from following their prey after the continents broke apart and the tunnels filled with water.
Tell us about the vrill powered civilization of the Lizard people living underground who are watching and manipulating humanity.

Re: 500 Million Year Old Fossil Found of Uknown Species Discovered

A lot of scientists refuse to admit that early dinosaurs used flashlights and rock climbing gear to navigate the vast cave systems, as did the early humans who traveled with them. It's also a gross misconception that early humans stood hunched over. Due to the greater axial tilt of the Earth back then, the surface was sloped at a fairly steep angle, so early man was actually keeping his upper body and head upright while his lower body hugged the steep, sloping terrain that existed, again, due to the Earth's greater axial tilt.

Re: 500 Million Year Old Fossil Found of Uknown Species Discovered

The OP's posts certainly don't resemble anything scientific. I may have to start closing threads that don't open with credible scientific content.

I wouldn't mind threads being started with genuine scientific misconceptions that get discussed and end up being educating to the OP and other interested people.

But this one is not one of those.

I don't participate much in this forum, but I do read a lot of the threads because the topics interest me. Half the time, though, they turn out to be complete nonsense without any real basis in science.

Re: 500 Million Year Old Fossil Found of Uknown Species Discovered

I think this should be addressed to Dryson a little more formally:

You need to validate your topic with material that can be verified and discussed.

The moderator can handle this how he sees fit, but in general: The existence of this thread and others like it are only justifiable if you are able to justify them.

Snide remarks about canon are just damaging your case. What you call "canon" is the established body of science and technology that this forum was created for and named for. If you cannot or will not integrate your ideas with that body of knowledge, well, that's your business. But then your discussions will never fit into Science and Technology.

Good luck.

Now we really need a Morbo pic saying "EVOLUTION DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!"

"In the beginning, there was no life, the earth was forming...BOOM, the earth simmered from earth quakes, mountains forming, oceans boiling, then all was quiet....a little pool of water forms..in that pool, two tiny amoeba, the start of life."

--Bugs Bunny, "This is a Life?" 1955

It's bad when a Bugs Bunny cartoon is more scientifically accurate than what's posted in the Science and Technology forum.
