Creation/Evolution of Humans

22 December 2012, 13:27
Most of the clever people who so enthusiastically put me right regarding my previous thoughts on this/these subjects were merely parroting what many other parrots had parroted before.

Nothing regarding the creation/evolution of humans is empirically proven. All is speculation. Least of all can any professor, doctor or any other of the assorted experts tell us how the human mind works.

One Silver mentions that the arrivals from Africa intermarried with the Neanderthals. Accepted. But, who were the Neanderthals and where did they come from? We all know that traces of them were found in the Neander valley in what is today Germany. What does that really tell us? And what of the Cromagnons? Prototype Frenchmen?

Actually if I am honest,my real non-PC question is this: Why did those migrants who turned into the so called whites, assuming that is what happened, and mark that all science, physics and pure mathematics is or was based on assumptions, become so clever, and those who stayed behind stay so, to put it mildly, backward?

Left to their own devices would those who stayed behind have come up with a pair of specs, a steam engine, or a ball point pen?

Where and when did the clever genes get into the gene pool?

I look forward to my further education.
