    Does any of this data really address the question as to when
    "spiritual humanity" appeared?

    I know Glenn's take--what's yours?

    Is it conceivable that some of these human-like activities/artifacts
    are "anticipatory" to full-blown human beingness? I.e. some of the
    physical, psychological, and social elements are present, but they're
    not fully human yet. Not sure where I'd exactly draw the line, but it
    doesn't seem necessary to me to say that just because human-like
    characteristics exist that we have human beings in the image of God
    that are capable of a personal relationship with God.
