I wonder, if they didn’t have living specimens walking among them, if Palelontologists would determine that the different skull shapes in the three major types of Homo Sapiens are different species of hominids.

It won’t be long until GOD ALMIGHTY will set the record straight on the origin of man, and I guarantee Adam did not have a pea-sized brain.

Adam must have at least thought he had a pea-sized brain after letting Eve talk him into eating the forbidden fruit.
