Of course Glenn has many more "human-like evidences" on his web site -
- grave goods is just one of these. As for what scripture says, I
cannot agree that the "indicators are clear." That seems to be quite
a stretch.

Jack continues: "I have been kicking around the idea in my head that
being made in God's image means capacity for abstract language."

An interesting idea. There is some evidence that some chimps have
this capacity also. But it is not persuasive (to me).

There is an interesting book by a Jaynes, a Yale(?) professor, The
Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind -
something about consciousness coming into being when the mind split
into two halves. How to fit the good professor's thesis into the
question is something I have not thought through.
