The welath of the Cradle of Humankind

In my readings of this site to date I noticed that while theories have been discussed and evidence pointed to, there has been little to show where a vast wealth of evidence for evolution has come from. In fact in a search I know of one passing referral by Tapey (speaking of which my apologies mate, I didn't realise you were also Sefrican untill recenlyy - see me intro heh heh)

 

In South Africa we have a few major paleantologically wealthy sites from where a great many diverse fossils of early hominids have been discovered. The links brough on with these fossils add a great deal more evidence for the process of evolution, not just within humans but several plant and animal species as well.

 

The following links should prove interesting reading as a matter of fact. I will start with the most obvious (wikipedia) despite the fact that I'll likely catch some flack for that but it does give a good brief overview, a light starter to the meat and potatoes of the evidence you could say Sticking out tongue

And now some desert, I hereby offer the following challenge to creationists on this site, particularly those not from this part of the world. Come here. Tour those sites. Visit the Wits centre for evolution. I dare you. Look I'll even provide all the neccessary links for you to organise the trip so you don't have to

If you can do that and come up with proper evidence to refute evolutionary fact (not the theries of its acting mechanisms but the FACT) that evolution is real and tangible then I and I think many others here will rethink their positions.

 

That last lot would be interesting to everyone else as well as the tours are run and guided by the scientists responsible, partly to educate and partly to raise funds for further studies.

 

Let's see what happens shall we?

Yay though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for I am the bi9ggest mother%$&@#%$ in the valley and I carry a big stick

 One of my favorite wiki

 One of my favorite wiki pages is this one on many of the human related fossils that have been found.
