The argument of the Archaeologist has been that man has indeed been around for hundreds of thousands of years and so Genesis is nonsense.The argument of the fundamental Christian has been that Genesis is true word for word and that human archaeology must therefore be nonsense. Its purpose is to identify maximum ages that different species in different localities can attain such that exceptionally old age individuals may be recognized.
If truly all Dogs descend from the wild wolf, as is currently believed then the gene pool of the wolf is unbelievably large, encompassing the Bull Terrier, the Chihuahua, the Poodle, the Great Dane, the Rottweiler and the Beagle.
