Week 2 – blog post

It is amazing the amount of things we can figure out by looking at a few bones; add some clothing and weapons or pottery and the things anthropologists can infer increases exponentially. Because of how skilled anthropologists have become at…

Week 2 – Hominin Studies

Although nothing answers everything completely, I have never questioned the validity of evolution. It surprises me, however, how many people still today, some politicians included unfortunately, do not think that it is a rational explanation of our world. Especially because…

Week 2

I would first like to say that evolution is 100% true, and anyone who says otherwise is ignorant and backwards-thinking. Advances in scientific knowledge about the theory of evolution are in no way an attack on one’s religious beliefs (and…

Week 2

I’m not fully convinced on evolution as a definitive explanation for the way some things are. The diagram attempts to illustrate the relationships between early hominins is incomplete. While modern dating tools, like radiocarbon dating, can better place things on…

Early Hominin Studies

Really what we know about early Hominin species is that they were evolving from something more ape-like and becoming more human. They evolved to stand upright and to become bipedal. They developed larger brains leading to the abnormally large size…
