Lines of Development?
This was posted here years ago
at a time
when myopic mainstream scientists
laughed at the idea.
Today, everyone talks about potential inter-breeding
in the human line as if it were an everyday thing.
Much new genetic research has surfaced in the interim,
so that my chart below must now be taken with a grain of salt,
but the basic idea of the possibility
of more than one line of human evolution stands.
As usual, I was surely right on the basic conclusion.
Genetic research will ultimately give us the answers.
Two Lines of Human

evidence in world blood distribution
for two separate groups in human evolution,
perhaps by Cro-Magnon Man on the one side
and Neanderthal Man on the other side.
As noted by Lars Beckman
Contribution to the Physical Anthropology and Population Genetics of
Lund, 1959, p. 21:
European race is characterized
by a high per cent of Rh-negatives,
a very low B-frequency and a relatively high A2 frequency...
probably some connection with postglacial Cro-Magnon Man....
The Asiatic race is characterized by a high frequency of A1 and
and a low frequency of Rh-negatives...."
(i.e. perhaps some
connection to Neanderthal man).
As noted by
Herberdt Wendt, In Search of Adam,
Houghton-Mifflin: Boston, 1956) in spite of the historically unfounded
and falsely bad reputation of Neanderthal Man,
his cranial capacity "was amazingly large, 1300-1650 cc.
in comparison with a range of 1100-1700 for modern European males."
This is a totally speculative

to make one think about origins. It may be quite wrong.
Handedness is a point of evidence for two separate groups of Man.

In terms of

possibility that early Europe was populated at times

also by a different and more

in Prehistoric Europe (Volume I of UNESCO's History of Mankind:
She states further "while later

hand-axe makers in Eurasia undoubtedly led to the

NAZARETH IN FACT RELATE
TO THE CREATION OF MODERN MAN?
Is this the
distant root of the later idea that Jesus was
the son of God? an ancient human mutation?
All of these
findings support the speculation of H.V. Vallois
that there may indeed have been a "second line" of the evolution
of humanity (cited by Wendt, In Search of Adam, p. 362,
though there had been
very strange happenings in the general

ago, of the
distinguishable forms of the typical Neanderthal specimen
and the Homo sapiens of the Ice Age. In

skulls were much more primitive and on the other their limbs

inches long, while a male ... was a foot taller. In addition to
skulls of Neanderthal type others were found with high foreheads,
well rounded occiputs, and pronounced chins."
