    ... aw muscles. The robust became extinct about 1.5 million years ago. The Genus Homo Although scientists do not agree, many believe that after the evolutionary split that led to the robust, A. africanus evolved into the genus Homo.

Some possess relatively large brains-several almost 800 cc (about 49 cu in) -and large, -sized teeth. Others have sm...
  • Multi Regional Continuity Model Of Human Evolution
    1,144 words
    Multi-Regional Continuity: The Fossil Evidence With regards to the multi-regional continuity model of human evolution, there is without a doubt a preponderance of fossil data that supports the diverse origins of Homo sapiens in different regions of the globe. Skulls displaying a wide variety of mixed modern and archaic features have been found in every corner of the world. The mere existence of these fossils is evidence enough to prove that human evolution was far less cut-and-dried a process th...

    Chris Han Anthrop. 102/19/02 Article Abstract #two Human evolution is always a myth to most of the people.

  • Evidence To The Theory Of Evolution
    713 words
    The mystery of human origin is an often-debated topic. It is an issue that can never be proven, something as vague as the existence of God, the proof of a human soul, or even as evasive as the human psyche itself. The debate itself is divided between two main camps: the Evolutionists, who concur with Darwin's theory of evolution, survival of the fittest, and natural selection. They believe that mankind evolved from earlier versions of hominids, which in turn evolved from earlier primates. The ot...

    Absurdity in Human Evolution: Breaking down the Antrobus Family and their tumultuous Environment. Following World War II, a war of ideology, people began to lose sight of what it meant to be human. Now entering the span of the Cold War people were thrust into paranoia and pessimism, and there needed to be a change of heart. So were introduced the Antrobus family, in Thornton Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth. The Antrobus are the semblance and prototype of the human race on many levels: American, B...

Rather than focusing on an isolated moment in history, 2001 spans the entire course of mankind's development, from the most primitive cavemen to the final stages of evolution, with each period of evolution being represented by a different character or set of characters. These tiers of human achievement are interconne...

    Out of the Trees Primate Evolution Fossils representing the precursors of the primates may go back before the extinction of the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago. There are some primate-like teeth and bones found in Montana and Wyoming, dated from 60 to 65 maya. But the first undisputed primates appear about 55 maya. These early primates, despite the modern primate arboreal theme, may not themselves have been arboreal. As these primates continue to evolve, these basic traits prove a useful adaptiv...
