Atheists, agnostics and revelationists (and theists) hold to religious positions; and what they do with the evidence will again be determined by the assumptions (beliefs) of their religious positions.  It is not a matter of whether one is biased or not.  It is really a question of which bias is the best bias with which to be biased.

Speaking of Ken Ham, here is a link to a fossil find in South Africa.

How should Christians process this news?

Also, I am reading the October 2015 issue of 'Astronomy.' It has an article on the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. It may be shredding rocky planets that stray too near to it. What would the writer of Genesis have made of this? Do you think he was supernaturally given knowledge about the physical universe, such that he would have already known about this phenomenon?

Well, why do they claim "human like" vs "human"? BIAS. People come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and major differences can be seen between skull, body shapes, etc of isolated tribes due to reduced gene pool, nutritional problems, etc. They are just people.

As to the Astronomy article, it is supposition. "May" is the first clue.

The writer of Genesis (actually, "writers" who wrote sections and passed on to be finally compiled and edited by Moses) would have no need of knowledge about black holes, etc. And even now, we don't need to know these things. Just curiosities for scientists who are looking for ways to "prove" the unprovable - evolution.
