Meet The Red Deer Cave People: A New Hominid Species Found In China

Scientists have released pictures of a fossil that may be a previously unknown type of human that existed only between 11,500 and 14,500 years ago. The “Red Deer Cave People” may represent a new hominid species. [Creationist Warning: Many people, and some presidential candidates, believe that the Earth is only 5,000 – 6,000 years old. Thus, according to Biblically based science, this is story is a bunch of Satan-inspired or secular-inspired hooey].

The finding would suggest that modern humans were walking around with Stone Age folk in this part of China. The “Red Deer Cave People” reportedly had “a taste for deer.” This is the first discovery of a non-modern hominid younger than 100,000 years old.

They received their name because some remains were found in Maludong (“Red Deer Cave”) and there was evidence that they cooked red deer in their cave.

    LOL.

    Am I the only fan of Rise of the Panet of the Apes?

    Your remark above regarding certain southerners and bar-b-q was pretty good too. 🙂

    Humanity is still evolving. How about that whole lactose thing?

    Lactose Tolerance in East Africa Points to Recent Evolution
    Published: December 11, 2006
    A surprisingly recent instance of human evolution has been detected among the peoples of East Africa. It is the ability to digest milk in adulthood, conferred by genetic changes that occurred as recently as 3,000 years ago, a team of geneticists has found.

    Among mammals, lactase persistence is unique to humans – it evolved relatively recently (in the last 10,000 years) among some populations, and the majority of people worldwide remain lactase non-persistent.[6] For this reason lactase persistence is of some interest to the fields of anthropology and human genetics, which typically use the genetically-derived persistence/non-persistence terminology.

    Did Lactose Tolerance First Evolve in Central, Rather Than Northern Europe?

    Tolerance for cow’s milk may have arisen in the Neolithic period among the Linearbandkeramik culture of central Europe, not with the Lutefisk-lovers of Scandinavia

    By Lynne Peeples | August 28, 2009 | 13

    Dairy farmers living in Central Europe around 7,500 years ago may have been the first human adults to drink cow’s milk—at least comfortably.

    Bron, I’ll put it to you this way; God knows my heart and he knows what I think. I could give a fat rat’s ass what you think.
    ==========================================================
    do you kiss your momma with that mouth?

  4. Bron, I’ll put it to you this way; God knows my heart and he knows what I think. I could give a fat rat’s ass what you think. My, amount of faith, is no concern to you, bro. I know “exactly” how I got here and who I descended from. Why? Because I’ve read the book. Just because some of my ancestors may have dwelled in caves, doesn’t mean we are descendants of apes or Hollwood’s depiction of some non-existent Neanderthalian.

  5. DONT TREAD:

    Why do you not like the idea of evolving from an ape like animal?

    Couldnt God have set the machinery in motion? You dont have very much faith do you? Evolution doesnt disprove God it only disproves your way of looking at God.

    Dude, if there is a God, it can pretty much do things however it wants to. It doesnt care if you dont like being descended from ape like creatures. In fact I doubt it thinks too much about you. Cut God some slack dude, God doesnt do things your way.

    I think maybe you havent smoked enough dope while watching “Return of the Apes”.

  6. Yea, you have a good point. People are becoming more stupid and anti-God everyday. The world is evolving into over educated idiots. When they allow their governments to steal away their freedoms because of greed. No evolution of the flesh. Only a fool believes we are descendants from apes. Too much weed while watching, “Return of The Apes” will do that to ya.

  7. Dont Tread:

    how do you know we are not evolving? It takes many generations.
    We could be evolving right before your eyes and you would not know for another 20 generations or longer.

    We are already much larger than people just 800 years ago.

  8. Science proves that the Earth is millions of years old. Man has only been on the Earth, in a flesh body for about 14,000 years. Man in the “spiritual” body was here before that but we are not told for how long. Satan was also here in his “angelic” cherubim body form. The spirit body, and the cerubim body has mass, but no females with wombs. In fact; there may have never even been females until this earth age. The theory (Darwin’s) is a load of crap. Someone found an ape head and got twisted. For evolution of humans to be factual, there would still have to be “evolving flesh life forms of man”. Haven’t heard of any walking or crawling around lately.

    I don’t think creationist presidential candidates are people, either.

    rednecks have been BBQing for years.

    Absolutely hilarious.

  12. The joker is besserwisser today.
    Chinese have claimed descendance from another skull found there (Peking Man?), and claim belonging to their own branch of humanity.

    As for this chap, he’ s obviously a cheeky type; and a bit of a pinhead (microcephali?)..
    Which would not be a good combination. Let us hope for more from Red Deer to see if at least his pinheadedness is confined to this one.

  13. Gotta get your mythology straight prof! That’s not the work of Satan, it is the hairy thunderer Himself that put those bones there as a test for the faithful.

    At least that’s what the nutbags in my area tell me. He only wants us to love and respect him but He has no intent of making it easy, When I was in Jr High the girl I like made a big deal out of kissing another guy to see if I would get jealous; I guess its sort of like that.
