Note : this page is devoted to human evolution. This means absolutely nil reference is made here to "creationist" sites. The sites showing that evolution better explains facts / data than creationism (and I am generous with creationism) are listed here for our north american friends. Science shows evolutionism is the best scientific hypothesis to explain the data we have, and that creationism has more to do with beliefs than with science. Full stop.
