On the birth of the humanity: there is no contradiction between Bible and Archeology if they are understood correctly
The humanity is distinguished from the other living species by the morality – the ability to define the GOOD to be strengthened and the BAD to fight against.
The Torah/Bible describes the source of the human morality. The morality is coming from its “inventor” called God, and the Torah/Bible defines the time when it happened – about six thousand biblical years ago.
The archeology describes various physical parts of the human-like bodies which existed long before the Biblical times but not as the humans’ parts since the archelogy cannot find any remains of the human brain where the morality is operating.
Intellectual Judaism may suggest a scientific hypothesis which proves that the Bible and the Archeology do not contradict each other.
Something in our world existed for hundreds of million archeological years long before the Biblical times, and the archeology is studying the remains of this something. We have not yet discovered the creator of this something.
Then, about six thousand biblical years ago our world was principally rearranged, and that was the biblical world creation that included the creation of the humans. We know the name of the new creator. The Torah/Bible says His name is God, and He created us the humans “in His own image and likeness” with the inherited morality described in the Torah/Bible.
Although the Torah/Bible describes this differently, it might be that the dust that is described as the material for creating the human was a human-like animal which was “upgraded” by the human brain that manages the human morality. Scientifically, it could be done in many ways, for example by irradiating the before-human brain by still unknown rays (Holy Spirit?) or through the power of genetic makeup.
Just remember, that is the hypothesis that should be proven in the future … but any new knowledge begins with a hypothesis.
