Research scientists Ann Gauger, Douglas Axe, and Casey Luskin do a superb job in their presentation of how purely neo-Darwinian explanations for human origins fall short.

For the sake of brevity, they address only a few of the toughest questions, which means that some of the information is fairly technical, which can't be avoided/5(74). The Hall of Human Origins offers a welcoming place to explore one of the most exciting areas of science, the study of human evolution.

Despite strong public interest in the science, however, many people find this topic troubling when viewed from a religious perspective. At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings.

And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained. The Story of Human Origins recounts the most astonishing evolutionary tale ever told.

Discover how our ancestors made the first tentative Human Origins book towards becoming human, how we lost our fur but gained language, fire and tools, how we strode out of Africa, invented farming and cities and ultimately created modern civilization - perhaps the only /5(15).

Because of the archaic language used in Cayce's description, I have paraphrased it slightly, without losing. Human evolution, the process by which human beings developed on Earth from now-extinct zoologically, we humans are Homo sapiens, a culture-bearing upright-walking species that lives on the ground and very likely first evolved in Africa aboutyears ago.

Different phases of this journey are presented in an integrative format with information from a number of disciplines, including population genetics, evolution, anthropology.

Human Origins (printed book version) provides a richly illustrated narrative of our 'big history' – tracing out the major events from the big bang to the present with an emphasis on the last million latest evidence from fossil bones, stone tools, artefacts and ancient DNA reveals how diet, past climate and landscape shaped many of the features that make us human.
