A leading researcher on human evolution proposes a new and controversial theory of how our species came to be In this groundbreaking and engaging work of science, world-renowned paleoanthropologist Chris Stringer sets out a new theory of humanity's origin, challenging both the multiregionalists (who hold that modern humans developed from ancient ancestors in different parts of the world) and his own "out of Africa" theory, which maintains that humans emerged rapidly in one small part of Africa and then spread to replace all other humans within and outside the continent. Stringer's new theory, based on archeological and genetic evidence, holds that distinct humans coexisted and competed across the African continent—exchanging genes, tools, and behavioral strategies. Stringer draws on analyses of old and new fossils from around the world, DNA studies of Neanderthals (using the full genome map) and other species, and recent archeological digs to unveil his new theory. He shows how the most sensational recent fossil findings fit with his model, and he questions previous concepts (including his own) of modernity and how it evolved. Lone Survivors will be the definitive account of who and what we were, and will change perceptions about our origins and about what it means to be human.

Postsecular Feminisms explores the contested relationship between feminism and secularism through a series of case studies, featuring perspectives from the global North and South. It offers insights beyond those of the Abrahamic traditions, and includes multiple examples from South Asia. By decentering the European experience, Postsecular Feminisms shows how secularism and feminism have been constituted in North America, South Asia, and Anglophone West Africa. The book asks: can postsecular feminism offer a way to think about religion and gender so as to support women in all the variety of their lived experiences? The contributors show that postsecular feminism is a variety of feminism that is not necessarily either secularist or anti-secular. Rather it is feminism informed by a history of secularist bias within liberal feminism. Postsecular Feminisms explores both the potentials and pitfalls of postsecular feminisms, with some authors arguing that a contextually grounded praxis is possible, while others make a strong case against postsecular feminism as theory and practice.

Who are we? Where are we from? These questions have troubled people for centuries. The textbooks have long taught us that human beings evolved from anthropoid apes. Today, a new science, molecular anthropology, tells us this: 7 billion human beings in the world share a common grand, grand…father, the Y-chromosome Adam, and share a common grand, grand…mother, the Mitochondrial Eve. After reading information in this book, you will be convinced that human beings could not be the result of evolution, sudden mutation, or in any way related to the anthropoid apes.

Why and how are past unexplained phenomena changing our future? Where will transcending the bounds of current thinking lead? How near is the singularity? The UFO Singularity finally reveals what UFO phenomena can tell us about greater-than-human intelligence, and offers provocative theories of where such intelligence might originate. You’ll explore the most challenging metaphysical questions and the latest scientific thoughts about them, including: What is the singularity, and how does it relate to UFOs? Could some UFOs be from our plane? Could they actually be time travelers from our future? What current scientific trends are leading us to the kinds of advanced technology we’ve observed in various UFO reports? Are there other ways in which UFOs could be considered “extraterrestrial visitors” in our midst, even if they didn’t get here in the way that most people think (via interplanetary space flight)?

Science and religion need not be enemies in exploration of the origin and meaning of life. Each has its proper place in considering what Charles Darwin called the “mystery of mysteries.” When properly understood, scientific research and Christian theological reflection contribute to a deeper understanding of these mysteries. On Our Origins explores both the scientific and scriptural narratives of creation and engages in a respectful conversation between the two. Instead of rejecting faith or science, it explores both in order to propose a reasonable and holistic Christian understanding of human existence. Many aspects of this timely discussion will culminate in an examination of the claims of Christ. Does faith in Jesus of Nazareth as Savior undermine science? Or has Jesus connected humanity to the Creator in a way that brings the spiritual and physical into harmonious relationship? This is an all-important mystery we seek to unravel because we will never know who we are until we come to terms with from whence we’ve come. “In the beginning, God …” WWW.ONOURORIGINS.ORG
