That is what genetics science tells us:
Almost every man alive can trace his origins to one man who lived about 135,000 years ago, new research suggests. And that ancient man likely shared the planet with the mother of all women.
The findings, detailed in the journal Science, come from the most complete analysis of the male sex , or the Y chromosome, to date. The results overturn earlier research, which suggested that men's most recent common ancestor lived just 50,000 to 60,000 years ago.
Yes, the human-like creatures existed long ago as the archaeological science tells us.
The fundamental difference between the human-like creatures and the humans is that the human-like creatures, having the bones/sculls’ genetics like that of the humans, lived like animals between the body birth and the body death without the human morality being preserved and transferred to the next human generations.
About six thousand years ago something happened that transformed the human-like creatures into the humans. What happened six thousand years ago had transformed the human-like creatures into the humans as the Bible defines them – with the morality to be strictly followed, recorded (in oral and written forms) and transferred to the future generations.
What kind of development might it be?
The recent genetics discovery shows what it might be:
Astronaut Scott Kelly had an identical twin brother when he ventured into space and set the record for most consecutive days spent in orbit, but not anymore. In a groundbreaking new study, NASA scientists found that Kelly’s DNA had been altered upon his return to earth — with 7 percent of his genes experiencing an “unexpected change”. Research teams from around the country had been analyzing the New Jersey native’s condition and genetic makeup following his year-long stay aboard the International Space Station as part of NASA’s “Twins Study.”
Two major factors during the space travel may be responsible for the genetic changes – the weightlessness and the irradiation by various known and unknown energy fields. The effects of weightlessness on human body have been studied for many years and no resulted genetic changes were recorded. Therefore, most probably the irradiation by various known and unknown energy fields is the cause of genetic changes.
That is what probably happened about six thousand years ago that created the humans out of the human-like creatures: the sudden irradiation by various known and unknown energy fields that created the “morality” genes whatever it may mean.
The Torah defines the Power that created the humans as God, and it well may be that the true “creation material” used for creating (by this Power called God) the humans was the irradiation by various known and unknown energy fields described in the Torah as the dust.
Acknowledging the fundamental difference between the pre-Bible, human-like creatures and the post-Bible humans is the key for peaceful and creative coexistence between Science and Bible.
