Re: Leakey vs Johanson
Is it funny because it is different from interpretations of Genesis so radily held by church people and so equally ridiculed by science people?
Did you ever read this section of Genesis closely and copare it with the growing body of information in the fossil record?
Why would the present situation not be open to a third idea, when interpretation of Genesis is assumed absolutely true by 2 billion christians, and absolutely false by 2 million science people?
In fact, don't you think we need a new paradigm which accommodates both these social institutions, Religion and Education?
This one works. Why isn't it embraced? Do people just love to fight?
Gen. 4:1 And Adam (Ramaphitecus Man) knew Eve (mother of all hominoids) his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain (Ardipithecus ramidus), and said, I have gotten a man, (a hominoid), from the LORD.

That just constructs reconciliation through metaphor. It does not actually elucidate or educate or in fact leave us any wiser as to our origins. MERELY "reconciling" conflicting analyses through metaphor achieves nothing.
