Default New discovery in human Evolution!

Discovered in South Africa, the "Homo-Naledi" species (watch video).

http://edition.cnn.com/2015/09/10/af...ies/index.html

Even scientists (of good will) say that these creatures are the closest to humans, a "human relative species", yet, they also say: "not human" and a "mystery to science". Well, science alone can not go beyond its scope. Of course, these creatures were very similar to humans, even in behavior (burying the dead), I would say they did it by natural instinct, but they didn't have immortal souls like us. They were just a "basis" of what would then be us.

Ron explains at length in his Adam and Eve vs Evolution book.

Perhaps Adam and Eve first appeared in what is now called Africa?

Adam and Eve may have been exiled from Paradise to a location in northeastern Africa, or perhaps the holy Land. They might have moved around from time to time.

I would say that all the species prior to Behaviorally Modern Humans (BMH) are prior to Adam and Eve, and did not have free will, abstract reason, or an immortal soul. Then all modern humans (BMH) are descended from Adam and Eve.

The new species mentioned above is certainly prior to BMH.
