    Not so fast. Glenn's position (unless it has changed) has been that
    Adam and Noah lived within the Mediterranean basin immediately prior
    to the time of the infilling of the Mediterranean sea about 5.5
    million years ago. His task has been to find evidence of hominid
    remains and artifacts dated far enough back in time to make this
    scenario plausible.

    Now all of a sudden, hominid remains are found in Chad that pre-date
    the infilling of the Mediterranean sea by over one half billion
    years! His problem is now just the reverse. He has to find ways to
    push pack the geological evidence to fit the new anthropological

    Those who have been on this list long enough know that my stance has
    been that Adam of Genesis lived about 7,000 years ago in southern
    Mesopotamia, and he is the father of the
    Adamites/Semites/Israelites/Jews, not the father of all humanity as
    has been commonly presumed. Thus early hominids, whatever the date,
    do not threaten my case.

    How about it Glenn, have I gained a convert, or simply agitated an
    old adversarial friend?
