A. Basic human embryological facts
To begin with, scientifically something very radical occurs between the processes of gametogenesis and fertilization <> the change from a simple part of one human being (i.e., a sperm) and a simple part of another human being (i.e., an oocyte <> usually referred to as an "ovum" or "egg"), which simply possess "human life", to a new, genetically unique, newly existing, individual, whole living human being (a single-cell embryonic human zygote). That is, upon fertilization, parts of human beings have actually been transformed into something very different from what they were before; they have been changed into a single, whole human being. During the process of fertilization, the sperm and the oocyte cease to exist as such, and a new human being is produced.
What species did Cro-Magnons belong, hominid and Sapiens?

This famous fossil skull is from one of several modern human skeletons found at the famous rock shelter site at Cro-Magnon, near the village of Les Eyzies, France. Dec 31, 1969 ... World History Distinctly said Hominid Species bring forth Homo Erectus. But the Wise Wise Sapiens Species, produced two subgroups: 1) Neanderthals and 2) Wise Wise Sapiens Sapiens. (Correct)
