If you traced your family tree back 185 million generations through evolution, you wouldn't be looking at a human, a primate, or even a mammal. You'd be looking at a fish. So where along that line does the first human show up? The answer may surprise you

How can the earth be just thousands of years old when we can we see the light from distant stars? Does distant starlight disprove the Bible? Genesis 1 clearly says that the sun, moon, and stars were created on the 4th day, and the genealogies in Genesis 5 and 10 lead back to Adam who was formed by God on the 6th day just thousands of years ago. But the distant light from stars seems to prove earth and our universe was created billions of years ago. Is this a contradiction?
Noah's flood occurred just thousands of years ago and wiped out all terrestrial life on earth, save just thousands of animal "kinds" and 8 people on the Ark. Catastrophic rifting resulted in cycling tsunamis that brought water and sediment onto land and resulted in the movement of the continents to their position today.

In part 2 of our special series on human ancestry, we ask why we are the only surviving branch on the human evolutionary tree. Just 50,000-100,000 years ago, Earth was home to three or four separate human species, including our most famous cousins: the Neanderthals. New research has shown that Neanderthals were not the brutish, unintelligent cavemen that cartoons make them out to be. They were creative, smart, social, and perhaps even had complex language. So why did they go extinct as soon as Homo sapiens moved into their territory? Does any trace of them live on today? Why don’t we have Neanderthal neighbors?

Biologists teach that all living things on Earth are related. Is there any solid evidence to back this claim? Join us as we explore the facts! We start with a close look at the origin of whales from land mammals, and then touch on the origins of several other critters, including our own species.
If you want to learn more about whale fossils and evolution, we have articles for you to enjoy on our website!
To learn more about whale embryos, check out the work of Dr. Hans Thewissen here: http://web.neomed.edu/web/anatomy/DLDD/index.html
For an in-depth view of whale evolution, read Dr. Hans Thewissen's new book "The Walking Whales" http://www.ucpress.edu/book.php?isbn=9780520277069
Dolphin embryos shown in this animation come from spotted dolphins. Adult is a dusky dolphin.

This is an incredible discovery that could change everything we thought we knew about history. http://bit.ly/AncientAliensandGods Arcane accounts from Egypt, Greece, Rome and Sumeria tell startling similar stories of the oceanic destruction of advanced civilizations which vanished into the world’s oceans and forgotten to the ravages of time. New technology scouring the vast depths are discovering the ruins of these lost lands. To the disbelief of established scientific communities, the evidence gathered correlates to surviving tales of an antediluvian world predating the establishment of Göbekli Tepe. These lost cities tell of the ongoing conflict between Enki and Enlil hold the secrets to unlocking the ancient code of human origin and destiny. http://bit.ly/AncientAliensandGods

5 Stephen Hawking predictions that may come true. We take a look at these 5 Stephen Hawking predictions that may come true.
Every single passing day a variety of many different people from across the world make predictions about the future of humankind in an attempt to better understand and combat changing industries, personal obstacles, and tragic events that may spell out doom for the rest of us. These predictions could come from self proclaimed psychics, emerging technologies in artificial intelligence, investors looking to predict future decisions and impacts on the economy or government research to provide intelligence relative to policy impact and decision making. Today, however, we will be pouring over the predictions made by world renowned research scientist Dr. Stephen Hawking of whom had recently passed away not too long ago. In a means to pay homage to the brilliance of the late Dr. Stephen Hawking, we have gathered 5 predictions that he made that may actually come true.
Thank you for watching!

Sixteen (16) minutes of convincing evidence that the Fossil Record supports the year-long Genesis Flood describes in Genesis 6-9. The geologic column is filled with fossils. Does the fossil record provide evidence of Noah's Flood, or evolution over "millions of years"?
