The Hofmeyr skull

The Hofmeyr Skull is a Homo sapiens specimen that evolutionists claim to have lived 37,000 years ago found in 1952. It was found over fifty years ago near the town of Hofmeyr, in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa.

Evolution and Creation view

The difference between the evolution view and the creation view on this is the timing. A study of scientists led by Frederick Grine at Stone Brook University In New York has estimated the skull's age to 36,200 ± 3,200 years old.[1][2] Young earth creationists evidently did not agree with this timing (see: Dating methods).
