As I have said before, I don’t agree at all with RTB’s literal interpretation of Genesis 1-11, but I still think they make a good case for humanity beginning with Homo Sapien Sapiens. I think Rana makes a pretty good case for the origin of language being saltational and it starting with homo sapiens. What does everyone here think?
On another note, I would like to thank everyone here for providing such good discussions. I was thinking today about what a blessing this forum has been. Seminary was the happiest time of my life and from time to time, I get really sad because that period of my life is over. Joining the discussions here have helped bring back some of the joy I felt being able to discuss theology so openly with extremely knowledgeable people in seminary.
