And the stories are not impossible because they can happen. You believe that africanus is our ancestor, and not all scientists agree with you. But you still believe it. Cuz you choose too. Period. Just as I choose to believe the bible.
The belief that Australopithecus africanus being an ancestor of ours is completely within the realm of plausible genetics and evolution. Adam and Eve and Noah's Arc are impossible. Flat out impossible. THEY CANNOT HAPPEN. Plus there are other species of Australopithecus like Australopithecus anamensis, and Australopithecus afarensis that are considered more closely related to us. And you forget about Homo habilis, Homo erectus, Neanderthal man and Cro-magnon man that are all part of the gradual evolution of modern man. DNA testing of Neanderthal man even shows they are almost identical to us.

This is far more believable and realistic than Adam and Eve, or Noah's Arc. Plus there is evidence. Where you have none to support your impossible fairy tales.
