The 2.8 MILLION Year Old Human Discovered in Ethiopia

21st Century Wire says…

We think we know so much about our species and history, but how much do we really know? How long have human species been wandering on our planet?

The fossil of a human jawbone, still containing teeth, has been found in Ethiopia. The fossil is 400,000 years older than scientists previously thought humans had existed on Earth. The fossil was found by an Ethiopian student called Chalachew Seyoum.

A similar human-like discovery was made in South Africa, which was dated at around 1.95 million years old. Different species of humans living on the same continent is ‘as if nature was experimenting with different versions of the same evolutionary configuration until one succeeded’.

Another theory of humanity’s development on Earth is that aliens ‘seeded’ the planet in a process of directed pan-spermia; the recent discovery of strange metallic sphere is looking to advance these ideas.

Meanwhile, a new quantum equation is suggesting that the universe is eternal, which renders the Big Bang Theory useless.

We’re now discovering new ‘Super-Earths’ in the universe, but, what do really know about our own planet?

The discovery in Ethiopia suggests climate change spurred the transition from tree dweller to upright walker.

The head of the research team told BBC News that the find gives the first insight into “the most important transitions in human evolution”…
