Georgian skulls contradict theory of human evolution
A recent archeological find of 5 skulls from the same layer of rock in Dmanisi, Georgia has overturned previous theories about human evolution.
The skulls have been dated (by secular estimates) to nearly 2 million years ago (1.8) and show something quite different than what would have been expected.
It was previously thought the human skull shape mutated gradually from a very pronounced outwardly sloping face, akin to a modern chimp, gradually to a flatter face, along with other gradual progressions such as a protruding brow, gradually becoming less pronounced.
In fact evolutionists have used such examples as evidence that humans developed from chimp-like ancestors through a process of accidental mutations and competition.
This chart from “talk origins” shows the theory that humans gradually developed a less sloping face and less pronounced brow over millions of years gradually. “A” in this chart is a modern chimp incidentally, not an ancient ancestor, “B” and “C” are Australopithecus (Lucy)
However this new find of five skulls from the same time period is evidence against this theory. These skulls show a significant variation of facial sloping and brow depth.
As we can see from the skulls, Number 2 is very much like a modern human, while number 3 has a more pronounced facial angle and yet hardly any pronouncement of the brow ridge. Skull 4 has a more notable brow, yet a much shorter face similar to a modern female. Skull 5 has characteristics which would have normally dated it much older than skulls 2 and 3, but as they were found in the same area, we know they all lived at the same time. Skull 5 has a much more sloping angular face, larger jaw and shorter forehead.
These skulls were also found with tools, showing although their brain capacity was less than modern humans, they were intelligent and able create and use tools, so they were all certainly humans.
The five Dmanisi skulls show a wide variation of cranial height, brow pronouncement, facial angle and jaw size.
The last and most recently found of the five was the skull farthest right, which has caused shockwaves throughout the naturalist scientific community.
Whereas 2 and 3 had a somewhat similar face angle, Skull 5 has a much more pronounced angle, with the front of the mouth sticking forward much more than skull 3. In fact skull 5 also has a significantly larger jaw and brow ridge to the other skulls. These are phylogenic characteristics which would previously have placed skull 5 at a much older period of human evolution, but as they were all found in the same rock layer, that isn’t the case.
These 5 skulls existed at the same period, were human, and yet had significant variation of skull characteristics.
This discovery highlights the confirmation bias involved in evolution theory and its proponents. The theory had been assumed that humans developed gradually from a chimp-like animal several millions of years ago, and then the discovery of fossils have been viewed through that presupposition.
As a result, the secular scientific establishment have been teaching, as a reality, this gradual change in skull structure as proof humans developed from tree-dwelling chimp-like animals for decades.
Hundreds of millions of children and adults have been conditioned to believe that these gradual shifts in characteristics occurred over millions of years.
The variation of the 5 contemporaneous Dmanisi skulls disprove this theory. They show that significant variation of skull characteristics was common thousands of years ago, as it is now in modern man.
