Theories on humans being an "invasive species" started back in the 1970's. Most academic institutions debated this theory over the last 40 years.


Quote:
Despite the lack of a single definition, however, we can pull from these definitions some general aspects of an invasive species and apply those to Homo sapiens.

1) An invasive species is widespread: Humans, which can be found on every continent, floating on every ocean and even circling the skies above certainly meet this aspect of invasiveness.

2) An invasive species has to be a non-native: Humans had colonized every continent but Antarctica by about 15,000 years ago. Sure, we've done some rearranging of populations since then and had an explosion in population size, but we're a native species.

3) An invasive species is introduced to a new habitat: Humans move themselves; there is no outside entity facilitating their spread.

4) An invasive species had adverse effects on its new habitat and/or on human health: Humans meet this part of the definition in too many ways to count.

The truth is they can't find much evidence in the fossil record for modern humans older than 15,000 to 30,000 years. Darwin's theory of evolution only makes sense on a much longer time scale.

DNA records cannot be relied on too.

Quote:
Our ancestors had sex with Neanderthals

Archaeologists have known for some time that modern humans and Neanderthals lived together in Europe and Asia, but until recently the nature of their cohabitation was unknown.

In fact, after the first full Neanderthal mitochondrial genome (DNA located in the cell's mitochondria) was sequenced in 2008, there was still uncertainty among both archaeologists and geneticists as to whether humans interbred with our closest relative.

When the full genome of a Neanderthal was sequenced in 2010, comparisons with modern human DNA showed that all non-African people have pieces of Neanderthal DNA in their genomes. This could have occurred if humans and Neanderthal had interbred around just 50,000 years ago, a result that was confirmed a few years later.

Humans having sex with monkeys 20,000 years ago would shock no one. It's still happening in modern times leading to AIDS. Due to this, the DNA record cannot be trusted.

The planet's ecosystem always finds a way to balance itself out over time. Lotka–Volterra equations proved it. So why is our population still growing?

If humans evolved on this planet over millions of years, why can't we sense natural disasters like other animals?

Why can birds and fish find their way over thousands of open sea and human need a compass?

Why do we need clothes?

There a growing belief that humans may not have started on this planet. Genesis from the Bible may have an element of truth. Adam and Eve myth is older than the bible.

You don't need fossil evidence to understand man's invasive instinct.
Have you never seen the Germans with their pool side towel reservations?

The most commonly accepted theory is that of the 'hunter'. In this scenario, SIVcpz was transferred to humans as a result of chimps being killed and eaten, or their blood getting into cuts or wounds on people in the course of hunting.5 Normally, the hunter's body would have fought off SIV, but on a few occasions the virus adapted itself within its new human host and became HIV-1.

Men do still shag donkeys though

If that "theory" is correct, why aren't butchers dropping dead from mad cow disease [shrug65465.gif]
