Spencer Wells — “Human family tree”

— These two videos show how recently science, and especially GENETICS (our DNA),  has re-written the history of mankind.  We are all AFRICANS as all mankind migrated from East Africa some 60,000 years ago after the great ice age.

    A very fascinating feature. I will watch it again and get the genetic kit to learn more about my ancestry. My mother’s family is from South India and my father’s family is an ethnic mix of Portuguese, Jewish, and Dutch. I can go back four generation with the info I have.

    Very informative and fascinating information-The ultimate heritage story of mankind recorded in the DNA of our cells tells so many stories of ourselves and is indeed the wide open frontier of the future. Understanding the vast data however will be the key to this great science of learning.

    Did you ever notice that secularists accept historical writings as fact, unless they are about God the Father, God the Son and the Holy Spirit.

    Have you ever heard a secularist proclaim that the following men did not live and that they were not who historians said they were?
    Confucius 551-479 B.C.
    Plato 427-347 B.C.
    Alexander the Great 356-323 B.C.
    Julius Caesar 100-44 B.C.
    Socrates 469-399 B.C.
    Buddha 563-483 B.C.
    Ludwig van Beethoven 1770-1827
    Homer 700-800 B.C.
    Isaac Newton 1642-1727
    Galileo Galilei 1564-1642
    Leonardo da Vinci 1452-1519
    Marco Polo 1254-1324
    John Locke 1632-1704
    George Washington 1732-1799
    Abraham Lincoln 1809-1865

    Secularists do not question the historical fact, that these men lived and died. They do not deny the role these men played in history. They believe this, by faith, that the historical accounts are accurate.

    Secularists do deny the historical accuracy of the Bible and all other accounts that proclaim Jesus as the Son of God. They deny the historical accounts of God the Father resurrecting Jesus from the grave.

    THE RESULTS OF A SELECTIVE VIEW OF HISTORICAL FACTS.(2 Thessalonians 1:8-9 dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 9 These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power.)

      There is more than enough evidence for the existence of all the individuals listed as having lived and died. The Bible is NOT a historical document particularly since Genesis is based on known Babylonian myth. The account of the Resurrection varies from Gospel to Gospel and in any case it would have been evident to a severely limited number of individuals. One cannot compare apples with oranges

        It is an interestng feature of human behavior to ignore the abundance of scientific evidence from DNA, evolution, and Astronomy that contradicts much of what is written in the Bible especially Genesis. It seem so much more logical to speculate on the nature, or power, of what might be behind the unknown that science is revealing.

        Years back I thought it was a mere unwillingness to think. Now it seem more that when someone has spent all his/her life believing in a myth is then confronted with overwhelming evidence showing his beliefs are based on fiction, it would be almost impossible for him to accept the new information. To do so is to accept that he has wasted a lifetime of emotional investment in a belief that is false. For others it may be a risk of losing an income from preaching falsehood. It is easier to attack the messenger..

    Did not get to see the video but human life from 60,000 years ago is only part of the story of the origination of “life” itself. The planet earth is some 5-6 billion years old which means, in terms of the age of the earth, humans only appeared last night. How life (before humans) may have started on our planet is the more interesting story.
