“The apologist approach to science plays well into all of the conspiracy theories and alternative facts that have swept the modern “Meme” based information society. Contributions to science requires years of disciplined study and hard work.”
That statement is pontification, however we are just debating the facts. These days the dispute among scholars continue in regard to how the morphology in the Americas changed.

“Wasn’t there such a thing as an Eve? I’ve heard somewhere that all of humans are descended from 7 individuals, or something similar. It’s a common idea that there was at least one population “bottleneck” somewhere in ancient Homo sapiens history, which is not at all surprising, considering how every other species of human has died out within the short 2 million year history of the Homo family tree.”
Yes the bottleneck has been well documented. The disappearance of the Clovis population in the Americas has been attributed to this bottleneck.
“Biblical Adam never existed. Today’s “Races” never had a starting date. Homo sapiens are evolved over time from earlier species.”
That is conventional wisdom. However, morphology and DNA evidence has started the debate. For instance the first unequivocal evident of mongoloid features is from 7000 BCE. Whereas the Chinese presumed they evolved from Peking man.
There are enough universal conundrums to justify not touching the unfalsifiable.
for instance a physicist recently concluded that the universe should not exist because antimatter should have annihilated it. Not to mention the anthropic principle. These observed states of the universe do nothing to dispell the notion of having an open mind
