We Are All Africans by TenaciousDC We Are All Africans by TenaciousDC
Inspired by a shirt Richard Dawkins brought to the Bill Maher show some time ago. Decided to make the text and logo appear to have sand blown over it, symbolizing what a majority of the world don't want to come to terms with.
Each religion tells multiple different [inaccurate] stories trying to make their followers look like the chosen and real ones.

We evolved into homo sapiens in Africa and moved out of the rough desert climate successively. We all came from the same place, and the same source - and all evidence point to the fact that it wasn't from gods.

I prefer Jim Overbeck's Theory of Evilution. He argues demons took flesh by mating with reptiles & monkeys to produce human simulacra as a means of blending in with humans on earth. Hence their archaeologists excavate their own former mutations to evidence an earthly origin for humans. This is a strategy evinced by Satan to produce destructive psychopaths, serial murderers, genocidal maniacs, so that they can lead humans to destruction by insinuating themselves into Church & State.

They can usually be identified by criminal/demonic ancestry - e.g. - Dorkins arose from murderous slavers whose trade bought them thousands of acres, leading to his present position of power.

What most religions and non religious alike don't want to admit is that over a million years of evolution from an already existing set of what were practically humans already, that to say different groups have different characteristics isn't racism. It's called not living with your head up your own ass.

Besides. For whatever religious denominations don't want to believe in evolution, half of them believe all humans were made practically the same anyways. Except for a few in some places which aren't really that relevant anymore.

Technically we're all Israelites

But true science rarely stops atheists.

Taking the link at face value, finding the oldest known human remains in Israel doesn't mean that all humans originated there. If legitimate, it is a very interesting finding which furthers our understanding of our past, but to extrapolate from a single tooth that humans evolved in what is now Israel, as opposed to Africa, is absurd.

Good point. Empirical evidence older then African life has no say on anything.
Since when has science that disagreed with you ever been right?

"Empirical evidence older then African life has no say on anything."

Don't confuse human life, with ALL life. Two separate things.

I don't pretend to be an authority on this subject. There is much I do not yet know about prehistoric anthropology/archeology. Additionally, I have not yet researched the validity of this individual finding, but for the sake of argument, I will accept it.

My point was, a single piece of evidence sheds new light on our understanding, this is a good thing. But it takes more than a single piece of evidence to overturn the scientific consensus. That's how true science works. New data is good, but we need corroborative evidence to verify it.

'Don't confuse human life, with ALL life. Two separate things.'

I believe this poster and I were referring to human life specifically. If you've gone off on a tangent, that's yourself to blame.

'I don't pretend to be an authority on this subject. There is much I do not yet know about prehistoric anthropology/archeology. Additionally, I have not yet researched the validity of this individual finding, but for the sake of argument, I will accept it.'

After all, some scientists somewhere claims its true.

'My point was, a single piece of evidence sheds new light on our understanding, this is a good thing.'

Good in a subjective sense surely.

'But it takes more than a single piece of evidence to overturn the scientific consensus. That's how true science works.'

Well established theories ignore all evidence to the contrary.
At least that's how modern science works...

'New data is good, but we need corroborative evidence to verify it.'

It needs to be filtered through the proper channels and then given the go ahead by the elite.
Same as in any institution without individual thinking involved.

You keep going back to this idea that I don't want this to be true. Perhaps your worldview mixes your desires with your beliefs, but mine does not, nor does science. Scientists want to know the truth. That's what science means. Just because the consensus doesn't shift for a single piece of evidence doesn't mean there's some kind scientific fundamentalism actively working against the truth.

Science cannot function if accepted explanations for things can be immediately overturned by a single piece of evidence. There is a process that must happen before this can occur. In time, further findings and analysis may conclude that humans evolved in Israel rather than Africa. For the time being, a single tooth is simply nowhere near enough evidence to constitute a paradigm shift.

'You keep going back to this idea that I don't want this to be true.'

You seem dead set against it.

'Perhaps your worldview mixes your desires with your beliefs, but mine does not, nor does science.'

Sure it does. Its one of the great lies to claim a lot of modern science isn't entirely based on justifying social change or personal moral/political positions.

'Scientists want to know the truth.'

So do the religious. That doesn't mean that science and religion can't be co-opted by the unscrupulous.
Unless you honestly believe science can never not be about the search for truth...

'That's what science means.'

No. Science just means determining likely empirical causality. That's not always truth.

'Just because the consensus doesn't shift for a single piece of evidence doesn't mean there's some kind scientific fundamentalism actively working against the truth.'

But it doesn't leave that option out.
I admire your faith though.

'Science cannot function if accepted explanations for things can be immediately overturned by a single piece of evidence. There is a process that must happen before this can occur.'

And once that process is done it become indisputable? Apparently science only fully and unquestionably accepts what it decides is truth.
Again, I admire your faith.

'In time, further findings and analysis may conclude that humans evolved in Israel rather than Africa. For the time being, a single tooth is simply nowhere near enough evidence to constitute a paradigm shift.'

Because if enough scientists claim something it must be true.
Isn't a piece of evidence supposed to make you, I dunno...question the validity of even well established theories?

THATS what science is, or what it should be. Questioning.
