800,00 yrs of hominids with fire, 400,000 yrs of homo-sapiens, 60,000 yrs of modern man, its kind of a # you in the face of our ancestors to say they
couldnt have accomplished much by themselves, this also gets in the way of the ancient astronaut theory too.
The first Homo-sapiens, 400,000 yrs ago, made simple rock tools, digging sticks and spears, they stored grain, they cooked their food, they didnt have
the brains to do what we can now, but thye had the brains to do some pretty great things. 340,000 yrs of evolution took it's course, and bigger
brains meant bigger ideas, they soon began to paint what they saw, carve obeservations into bones etc. THEY had 45,000 yrs of prehistory to study
things, and we say that they were just hunter gatherers who knew nothing of the stars etc. Then suddenly, in 15,000 bc, the red indians show up out of
nowhere, knowing about medicines etc. believing in spirtis and nature, building houses and etc. Then the sumerians, who had great structures even
believed to have came from gods of another world, then the greeks, knowing science and philosophy, and developing the greatest politics, for 45,000
yrs man must have been dumb as hell to not develop these practices and arts, it makes absolutely no sense.
