Discussion questions:

  1. Evaluate:
    • Australopithicus afarensis
    • A. africanus
    • Homo ergaster
    • H. erectus
    • H. heidelbergensis
    • H. neanderthalensis

    Should each of these be considered human or non-human? Why?

  2. A friend of yours claims that the similarity between human and chimp DNA proves evolution. How would you respond?
  3. One evolutionary idea is that embryos of different kinds pass through similar developmental stages. Another evolutionary idea is that embryos trace their alleged evolutionary ancestry as they develop. Both of these ideas have been thoroughly discredited. Why?
  4. 4467-bones-of-contention
    Bones of Contention
  5. Explain the evolutionary ‘mitochondrial Eve’ (or ‘out of Africa’) and ‘Y-chromosome Adam’ concepts. How does the Bible explain the evidence?
