Human Evolution LexiLine? Logo Two Lines of Development?
LexiLine - A Renaissance in Learning

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 Evolution?

Will the real Adam please stand up?

There is good evidence in world blood distribution
for two separate groups in human evolution
represented perhaps by Cro-Magnon Man on the one side
and Neanderthal Man on the other side.

As noted by Lars Beckman
A Contribution to the Physical Anthropology and Population Genetics of Sweden:
Lund, 1959, p. 21:
"The Early 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 B
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."

The Roots of Mankind ?
This is a totally speculative inquiry.
It is meant to make one think about origins. It may be quite wrong.


Right-handers and Left-handers ?

Handedness is a point of evidence for two separate groups of Man.
Homo erectus, a precursor to man - never found in Europe -
was right-handed, as were the Neanderthals.
The ancient Cro-Magnon cave painters of Europe
were almost certainly left-handed.
(See Philip Van Doren Stern, Prehistoric Europe.)

Giants and Dwarfs ?

In terms of the size of our predecessors, there is evidence
of two groups of human beings in ancient times.
As J. Bronowski wrote in his wonderful book,
The Ascent of Man (Little, Brown & Co.: Boston, 1973, p. 38),
"A cousin of man" allegedly "not in the direct line to us,
is a heavily-built Australopithecus robustus who is a vegetarian....
His cousin on the line to man is lighter - visibly so in the jaw -
and is probably a meat-eater ... a small creature standing only
four feet high." (Australopithecus africanus)

Herberdt Wendt in his book In Search of Adam
(Houghton Mifflin Co.:Boston, 1956. notes 17, p. 362, p. 487)
writes in this regard: "It appeared that in the latest glacial
period at least two culturally creative races had lived
in Europe ... Giants and Dwarfs .... They seem to have lived
at the same time and in the same places.
Which one of them was the real Adam?"

Cultural Traditions

In terms of culture, Philip Van Doren Stern in Prehistoric Europe
(W.W. Norton & Co.:New York, 1969) writes that "There is also
an excellent possibility that early Europe was populated at times
not only by hand-axe makers but also by a different and more
primitive people, the chopper-chopping-tool makers who used
chipped pebbles and accidentally produced flakes
rather than carefully shaped flint."

Another researcher writes that the cultural record of the Pleistocene
is said in fact to show "two cultural traditions", Jacquette Hawkes
in Prehistoric Europe (Volume I of UNESCO's History of Mankind:
London, 1963). She states further "while later on contacts between the
flake-tool and hand-axe makers in Eurasia undoubtedly led to the
mingling and transference of cultural traits, there is good reason to
believe that at this stage (prior to Neanderthal man)
the two people were distinct...."

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, n. 17).
Wendt himself writes that:

"It seemed as though there had been
very strange happenings in the general evolution of humanity
before the rise, some 150,000 years ago, of the two clearly
distinguishable forms of the typical Neanderthal specimen
and the Homo sapiens of the Ice Age.
In Palestine ... near
Nazareth...18 primitive human remains were unearthed...
They resembled Neanderthal man, but on the one hand their
skulls were much more primitive and on the other their limbs
were far more modern. A female ... was only four feet nine
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."
