I would like feedback on how I can improve this Hub.
https://hubpages.com/religion-philosoph … -Years-Old
You could offer your credentials as a biologist or similarly serious scholar at the start, so we trust you when you dismiss the theory of evolution.
What is your goal here? Are you having trouble getting this featured, or do you just want to improve it? Either way, it seems like the title could be more descriptive. How about something like "Alternative theories on the origin of man," or something that mentions Vedic theology and/or orthogenesis, and go into more detail about what they are. There may be some people who are actually searching for those things.
Sorry the only suggestion I could give you is that the article is based on pointless facts. It's written well, just that it's not true.
This made me laugh:
I believe in a kind of evolution called orthogenesis, which is evolution with goals. One of the goals is to evolve hominid creatures with ten fingers and big brains, like us. Some don't succeed, like the Neanderthal.
So who sets the goals? Do I tell myself I want my child to have 9 toes? Or do we as a society need to meet up and decide we want all new kids to be born with 9 toes? And does it work by wishful thinking or do we need to do something else?
Oh, God. Then I would correct your hub "Some don't succeed, like the Neanderthal." God always succeeds, He never makes mistakes.
That's the definition of God right. All knowing and all powerful.
It seems to me this is a lot of questions and personal opinions. My belief is that people come to HubPages looking for answers and factual information. This article offers neither.
There is no HP rule about not asking questions, it just seems to me that most people are looking for answers not more questions. If you want to pose a series of questions that's your right. It's unlikely a lot of people are going to read something that is filled with questions.
I understand that not many people read or want to read my writing.
I believe that people would, since you write well and you're clearly intelligent! We're saying you could offer evidence and engage your topic in a critical, balanced way.
In the Vedic tradition, we are different in that we believe humanity has been around a very long time. We are not like the creationists or evolutionists in this regard. Mr. Michael Cremo has a book on this very topic where he & his colleague outlined items found which are millions of years old. They are tools which humans used. They were dated back millions of years. He has been able to present his book at a number of universities, including the University of MN. Some universities will not let him speak because his views are different than what people have accepted. Too bad. We all should be open minded on the topic. Every day archaeology is illuminating new finds which challenge our views on many topics. That is good.
In my opinion, your article raises too many questions but doesn't give many answers. Usually people want to read a piece of information to answer one of their questions, or to satisfy their curiosity.
I think you need to explain more what M.C. states as facts and then build your counter arguments. Additional thoughts the first sentence can you add more to link with rest of article or explain a little more about Hindu belief as relates to length of mankind on earth? can you explain more about the 3 cubed series and their importance as related to article (caught my interest there)? explain how rule out Darwin evolution. it is a statement on it own without back up explanation. Maybe add in what is the oldest human bone found.
I think you have beginning of very interesting article just needs a little more information. Look forward to reading your update. I hope this is helpful.
Thank you everyone for your feedback. I decided to move this article to my blog. I don't think HP is the right place for it.

With some recent archaeological discoveries in India, and in South Africa has Darwin's evolution clouded our judgment about the creation of mankind? That's the question I would like to pose to all of you this morning before I scurry off to work.Why I am asking this question is because it is...

The incorrectly claim that evolution has zero evidence, ask how a monkey + monkey gave birth to a human overnight and of course attack evolution (but clearly have zero understanding of it). Is is just religious people (sorry to mention religion here). I can't grasp how some seemingly...

What is meant by a mature hub?I was looking for answers to the question: How long does it take for a hub to mature. It occurred to me that I only have a general idea of how a mature hub is defined. All opinions welcome.

do you really believe that world is 6k years old only or consider it as different scale?
