An evolutionary view of human origins underlies the World Heritage listing of the Lake Mungo site.
He anticipated that the ‘wilder races’ would become extinct because survival of the fittest meant they would be superseded by the evolutionarily-advanced ‘civilised’ races.I'm quite convinced that if this was more widely-known, especially by those who haven't yet committed themselves to a position (a la Hugh Ross), then the various nonsense compromise positions (day-age, gap, framework, etc.) would be practically lanced on-the-spot.But keep spreading the word and progress will keep being made! Peter, Yes, it appears there was higher rainfall immediately after the peak of the Ice Age, but then there was a later dry stage.(Perhaps it was because of isolation and the pressure to cope with a worsening climate as the continent dried out after the Ice Age.) They, like other peoples, are made ‘in the image of God’ (Genesis ).Then, in 1999, Thorne (not to be outdone) and other scientists from the Australian National University published a new comprehensive study on the age of Mungo Man. Bowler and Magee described this 20,000-year stretch as ‘commendable in intent.’ There was just one small problem.Like everyone else, they were descended from Noah, who built and managed the Ark, and from a people who developed an advanced civilization around the Tower of Babel.The Aborigines of Australia lost some of their technological know-how—it can happen in a generation if parents do not pass it on to their children.Another is that different methods using the same physical system (such as OSL and ESR) would give similar results.As the article documents, geologists have no qualms with rejecting dates they do not think are correct, no matter how much the different methods agree.Variation in climate since the end of the post-Flood Ice Age is complex, and depends on location and timing.Mary White in her "After the Browing" in the chapter "Descent from the Glacial Peak ..." discusses variation in lake levels in central New South Wales as an indicator of rainfall.
