With Half a Dozen Species of Human found so far, half of them from outside Africa, why is the establishment and mass media still trying to force feed humanity on the idea that Europeans, Asians and Americans come from African Apes? Human fossils aging over a hundred thousands years, using the same scientific methods of dating, have also been found in America, yet are quickly rubbished, destroyed and interfered with by the establishment. What happened to the the the investigative aspect of science?
An Ancient Human Fossil Similar to the 400,000-year-old fossil from Hexian, in southern China, indicates yet another species of human.
This ancient human fossil discovered from the seafloor near Taiwan reveals that a primitive group of humans, an unknown species, once lived in Asia, researchers say.
These findings back the idea that multiple lineages of extinct humans coexisted in Asia, long before the arrival of so called modern humans in the region about 40,000 years ago, the scientists added.
Although modern humans, Homo sapiens, are the only traceable human lineage today, many others once walked the globe. Extinct human lineages once found in Asia include Neanderthals, the closest extinct relatives of modern humans; Denisovans, whose genetic legacy may extend from Siberia to the Pacific islands of Oceania; Homo erectus, and the hobbitlike Homo floresiensis, who lived in Indonesia. These all are labeled as hominins.
Now, scientists have revealed the first ancient human fossil — a nearly complete right side of a lower jaw with primitive-looking teeth — to be found in Taiwan.
The fossil was dredged by a fishing net from the seafloor about 200 to 400 feet (60 to 120 meters) below the surface of the Penghu Channel, located about 15.5 miles (25 kilometers) off the western coast of Taiwan. The channel was part of the Asian mainland during the last ice age, when sea levels were lower.
An unknown fisherman sold the fossil, now dubbed Penghu 1, to a local antique shop. A local collector later submitted Penghu 1 to Taiwan’s National Museum of Natural Sciences after the researchers noticed its significance.
Analysis of trace elements in Penghu 1 suggests the hominin probably lived between 10,000 and 190,000 years ago. The jaw and its teeth look unexpectedly primitive for this age, the researchers said. During the Pleistocene Epoch, which lasted from about 2.6 million years ago to 11,700 years ago, humans generally evolved smaller jaws and teeth, but the new fossil from Taiwan appears larger and more robust than older Homo erectus fossils from Java and northern China.
The researchers said Penghu 1 does resemble a 400,000-year-old fossil from Hexian, in southern China, located about 590 miles (950 km) north of the Penghu Channel. The scientists suggest these fossils together represent a distinct group of archaic humans, although they caution that they do not yet have enough evidence to say explicitly whether it is a new species or not.
“We need other skeletal parts to evaluate the degree of its uniqueness,”study co-author Yousuke Kaifu, a paleoanthropologist at Japan’s National Museum of Nature and Science in Tokyo, told Live Science. “The question of species can be effectively discussed after those steps.”
The new findings suggest there were several different groups of archaic humans living in Asia at the same time, some more primitive than others. “This is a very different, complex and exciting story compared to what I was taught in school” Kaifu said.
The scientists detailed their findings online on Jan. 27 2015 in the journal Nature Communications.
