The research and writing of this book has been a time of discovery and revelation. It all began in 2007 with the writing of my first book, My God, Your God? Realizing that a Christian must have a relationship with God and that involved our consciousness, I thought I would add a short note about consciousness. I have long had an interest in consciousness and believed that early humans were instinctive creatures while modern humans were thinking and reasoning with full consciousness. The question was: When did humans acquire consciousness?  To my surprise I could not find that the experts in the field of consciousness addressed the question. So my quest to answer the question began. I should note that all the analysis in the book is secular using well known facts, reason and logic.

During the writing of my second book, GOD Exists!, around 2010, I realized a very powerful and yet simple logic technique, I call Non-Evolving Attributes, NEA. Simply stated NEA says that when you have a large population that has a common ancestor but are separated by time and/or distance by migration through many different branches, and they have a common attribute, then that attribute could not have evolved. For if it did evolve in any one branch, it would have had to evolve in all the other branches in the same exact manner and that is essentially impossible. The result is that when we have an attribute common to all people today, we know right away that our original ancestor had that same attribute. For example, all people today have the attribute of consciousness; therefore, the original Homo sapiens also had the consciousness attribute. For consciousness to be present in the early humans must have been a supernatural event; there is no natural explanation for this.

However, the evidence indicates the early Homo sapiens were instinctive creatures and did not have consciousness. Therefore, consciousness must have been suppressed, adding further to the mystery. This book, HUMANS, present a theory as to how consciousness was initially suppressed and then later expressed. In presenting the story, the book goes through the key periods where there was an apparent change in behavior, indicating a change in consciousness. The most dramatic change occurred began about 10,000 years ago as the Ice Age ended, the climate moderated and agriculture began. This time marks the beginning of rapid advancement in civilization that continues today, all due to humans now having full consciousness. The book presents a slightly different version of the actual sequence of events from what is commonly believed during this transition period.

While the initial focus was on consciousness, the more important discovery was realize by using NEA on a whole set of key human attributes, which were shown to be present in the early humans. The human with this set of attributes is what I call the Complete Human. One of those attributes is the Moral Code. The source of the Moral Code has been debated for centuries without consensus. Now there is solid evidence that God gave it to Humans when they first appeared on Earth.

Homo sapiens appeared about 200,000 year ago and yet the Bible indicates that the first humans, Adam and Eve appeared about 8,000 years ago. This book clears up that apparent discrepancy between the Bible and science, bringing the Book of Scripture and the Book of Nature in agreement, as it should be as they both have the same author, God.

    The book Humans may open the door to some as to Who we are? and Why we are here? Looking forward to the comments and discussions on the new blog.

    Wonderful post however , I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Cheers!

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field. Fantastic blog!

    Hey Art, I found where you made the comment about what might be a typo. It was on the “New Book” page of my website, “My God, Your God?” a the end of the first paragraph. And yes, you are right, there is a typo; it doesn’t make sense as written. Thanks for your input, I will correct it this afternoon.

    Art, thanks for your comment and in reading the book. I believe the sentence you are referring to in on page ix in the Preface of the book, HUMANS. That sentence is “To my surprise, I found only two authors in the field of consciousness studies that even considered the question of when it first appeared.” That seems okay, but maybe is not the sentence you quoted; so where is the sentence you are referring if it is different?
    Thanks for the update on the coverage in Christian Post.

    Not sure what you meant by “To my surprise I could not find that the experts in the field of consciousness did not address the question.” Typo?

    Congratulations on the coverage in Christian Post today. Great to hear about your journey and you books. I’ve added a link from ARN News: http://www.arn.org/news.html
