: While the mechanisms of evolution are still under investigation, scientists universally accept that the cosmos, our planet, Full text. All the australopithecines were bipedal and therefore possible hominines. Until recently, Homo erectus was considered an evolutionary ancestor of modern humans, or Homo sapiens. There is evidence that ancient people lived in homes at the same time that others were living under trees or in caves. I believe in human evolution because the fossils found as evidence, the way humans compare to some other living organisms, and the way we will continue to evolve. As the years progress we see other species of hominids appear. Not only have we found skeleton parts to show human evolution we have also found tools and paintings that show other forms of evolution.

Habilis (1.6-2.5 million years ago) is the first knows hominid to use tools. Paleoanthropologists have discovered parts of skeletons that date from.5 million years ago all the way up to present times. Afarensis (3 to3.9 million years old) and is larger and heavier with a slightly larger cranial capacity of 430-550 cm3. Ancestors of modern humans are divided into the category Australopithecus and Homo. This australopithecine had a brain size a little larger than chimpanzees. The increase in brain size may be related to changes in human being behaviour. Human curiosity has made us wonder where and how we came about. In the course of human evolution, the size of the brain has been more than tripled. All humans belong to the same species, which has spread from its birthplace in Africa to almost all parts of The story of human evolution began in Africa about six million years ago and it describes the very long process that our ancestors went through. While this disorder can be life threatening when ill treated, it makes our African friend immune to malaria. Human evolution has puzzled man for many years. There is a theory that human ancestors were not apes.
