Explain human evolution.

The universe is constructed from a multitude of various materials. It is dynamic in form and shape due to a multitude of various processes and interactions between these materials. To the human, however, in his need to establish his place and purpose in the universe, the most important material is biological and the most important process is evolution, far it is only here that the human can learn to understand himself, an understanding that is vital to his survival.

Wise men, psychologists, philosophers and theologians have surmised and conjectured about the human over the centuries, and still do, but the truth about the human may be found only through factual knowledge. That factual knowledge lies in a process called evolution. The human is what evolution made him.

Fifteen million years ago, the hairy bodied gorilla and chimpanzees like Hominids existed in Africa. 3-4 million years ago, men like hominids walked into Eastern Africa. Evidence shows that they hunted with stone weapons but were mostly fruit eaters. They were probably not taller than four feet, but walked upright in the grass lands of East Africa. These creatures were called the first human-like beings – the Hominid. The Hominid was called Homo habilis. The next stage of human evolution came into existence 1.5 million years ago with the rise of Homo erectus who were meat eaters. ​The Neanderthal man who lived in East and Central Asia 1 million years ago, used to hide to protect themselves and buried their dead. Archaic Homo sapiens arose in South Africa and moved across continents and developed into distinct races during the ice age. It is believed that homosapiens came into existence about 75,000 to 10,000 years ago. Pre-historic caves were developed about 18,000 years ago, agriculture came around 10,000 years back and human settlements started.
