Anth, 4 Feb 2002

Since someone asked: Assume that school, work, other peoples' drama, insane housemate issues, and sleep take up more time and energy than I can muster, and most of those things aren't interesting or aren't mine to write up. (And there was that spoofed news piece ..)



test returned, review:
essays: not specific enough, use details to back up thesis

these got switched somehow?

<th>Creationists and Evolutionists:</th> Food Production:
  • first Hominids: 4 - 4.5 E 6 YBP
  • Hunting and Gathering -> 10-11 E3 YBP
  • control food sources
  • 6E3 YBP: Old World villages
  • 3.5E3 YBP: New World villages
  • Neolithic: "New Age"
  • Constraints of Hunter/Gathers:
    • very finite food supply
    • spaced births of children
    • ease of transport in migration, fewer infants/toddlers
    • pick between live births
    • elderly (wisdom) also not mobile
  • Advantages of sedentary lifestyle:
    • able to support larger populations
    • no need to migrate all people, property
    • accumulation of property: pottery (sun dried, semi-fired)
    • fine goods: grave goods, gifts
    • crops can be stored
  • Hazards of sedentary life :
    • less mobile in case of disaster
    • less adaptable
    • population concentration, property breed conflicts
    • more complex rules
    • grown foods (grains) are labour intensive
    • move from free time to drudgery
    • health issues: skeletal injuries, inbreeding
    • health issues: contagion, no sanitation
    • refuse disposal
    • lifespan: reduced from 26 - 19 y
    • cereal grains: calories, but malnutrition (missing nutrients, protein)
    • pulses: (legumes: pods) protein and some nutrient

Creationists:

  • Young Earth: created 26 Oct 4004 BCE (Usher's chronology)

  • Unique Creation: all living things created in final form in the first few days of Creation

  • Progressive Creation: several creative periods (waves)

  • Extinction by Catastrophe (an Act of God?)

  • Single Origin Site: Garden of Eden

  • Origin of Life: Divine Creation


  
Evolutionists:

  • Old Earth: 4.6 E 9 YBP

  • new life from genetic change

  • Natural Selection determines survivors

  • Multiple Origin Sites, Times: seas, land (eg: Australian animals)

  • Origin of Life: not adressed by Evolutionary Theory Slartibartifast)


  

Theistic Evolution:

  • taught in seminaries

  • Divine Creation of Evolution

  • simillar to Deism -- clockmaker god


Current Mood: wasted
Current Music: all of the things I need to do, floating in my head

And....

..and there's the "new business" that's taking time also.

Be sure to eat and sleep my friend. You won't feel as overwhelmed that way.
