The Evolution of the Human | The universe is constructed from a multitude of various materials. It is dynamic in form and shape due to a multitude of various processes and interactions between these materials. To the human, however, in his need to establish his place and purpose in the universe, the most important material is biological and the most important process is evolution, far it is only here that the human can learn to understand himself, an understanding that is vital to his survival.

Wise men, psychologists, philosophers and theologians have surmised and conjectured about the human over the centuries, and

A great ape will rarely kill another member of the same species. On the other hand, music and art are peculiarities of the human and have no counterpart in any ape society.History of Man SPECIES | TIME PERIOD | Ardipithicus ramidus | 5 to 4 million years ago | Australopithecus anamensis | 4.2 to 3.9 million years ago | Australopithecus afarensis | 4 to 2.7 million years ago | Australopithecus africanus | 3 to 2 million years ago | Australopithecus robustus | 2.2 to 1.6 million years ago | Homo habilis | 2.2 to 1.6 million years ago | Homo erectus | 2.0 to 0.4 million years ago | Homo sapiens archaic | 400 to 200 thousand years ago | Homo sapiens neandertalensis | 200 to 30 thousand years ago | Homo sapiens sapiens | 200 thousand years ago to present |
The times of existence of the various hominid shown in the chart above are based on dated fossil remains. Each species may have existed earlier and/or later than shown, but fossil proof has not been discovered yet. There is also dispute concerning many overlapping species, for example, the overlap between Homo habilis and Homo erectus. It could well be that the two are continuing examples of the same species. The same dispute exists with Homo erectus, Homo sapiens archaic and homo sapiens sapiens. If all species have been discovered and the lineage of man lies within them, the most probable lineage would include all but the robust Australopithecines and the neandertalThe Neandertal |
