The Human Fossil Record and the Nature of Transitional Fossils

Heres an interesting artical  thats written on December 10, 2010 • by James Kidder ,found over on the Biologos Forum

On Biologos it says – our mission : ” The BioLogos Foundation explores, promotes and celebrates the integration of science and Christian faith”

 James Kidder holds a Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from the University of Tennessee (UT).

Physical anthropology uses the scientific method with extensive cross analysis and revision if necessary.

Practitioners began calling their science “biological anthropology” when the rise of genetics, and successful attempts to study non-human primates in their natural habitat, allowed anthropologists to rely on evidence other than bones”

This is a great artical by James Kidder because it helps to explain what science really means when science is talking about Transitional Fossils.

These Physical anthropology people work with DNA as a science, and the rise of this genetics science is what we also use these days to help convict many criminals.It has become such a very deadly accurate science that in the last few years very many historical criminal cases have also been solved by use of it. This science is so very deadly accurate that often all the police need today to help them find a killer and get a conviction, is find a small scraping of a bit of skin DNA , collected from under a fingernail of a victim , and then just find the genetic match.

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
