Is Germany the Fatherland of Mankind?

Postby supporttheunderdog » Sat Oct 21, 2017 7:35 am

Recent discoveries again suggest any theory of exclusive development of hominids in Africa might not be tenable as Ancient fossil teeth, said to be 9.7 MIllion years old, thought to be from an ape like (hominid) creature have been found in Germany.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/teeth-fossil-human-history-evolution-development-germany-rhine-mainz-archaeology-a8010506.html

This is several million years older than jaw and teeth remains found in Greece and Bulgaria.

Whether these particular creatures, or for that matter many other hominid creatures, were or were not ancestors of humans is open to question since the science suggests that there were many hominid species, most of which were "dead ends".

If there is one thing these discoveries should teach us is that there a lot of things about the distant past that we can't know with any sufficient level of certainty.

Why not try to post some real facts instead of your usual bollocks, dog?

For example, the Vandals was a German tribe.

You could argue that Germans are barbarians like the Mongols. :wink:

"The availability of high-resolution satellite imagery of Saudi Arabia on publicly available platforms such as Google Earth and Bing Maps has been transformational for archeology," Professor Kennedy writes.

"Within just a few years tens of thousands of sites previously unrecorded and scarcely known to the academic world have been mapped."

He is a specialist in using satellite and aerial photography to study ancient landscapes. His Aerial Photographic Archive for Archaeology in the Middle East is a project intended to investigate archaeological sites around the Arabian area using remote sensing.

The 'gates', he says, were first found by members of the public browsing satellite photos.

"This novel site type was first brought to a wider audience by a group of Saudi nationals - all non-archaeologists - who have been engaged in exploring the cultural heritage of their country," Professor Kennedy writes.

"In particular, Dr Al-Sa'eed, a medical doctor who, together with other members of what they have called the Desert Team, used Google Earth to examine parts of the landscape, visit some of the sites, and illustrate them on a website."

Just like Greece did not exist when some fantistical claims were made about it based an ancient tooth found there :D :D

in any event, So what comprehnsible geographical name would you give to the places where these ancient teeth were found ....

I guess it is difficult to give a name when we are talking about millions of years ago. Maybe the best way to put it is "an area which is now part of Germany".
