Why is it so difficult to believe that intelligent life only evolved on this planet once in the four and a half billion years of Earth's

Maybe it's cuz it is so laughable?
If you open your eyes, you might see that life (on this planet) is pervasive. It occupies every single nook and cranny available.
Do you REALLY think we are the first dominant (predator
) species to evolve on this planet?
Please guys, the 'Clovis' thing, the Alaska 'land bridge' thing?
That is a totally ethnocentric viewpoint NOT supported by the physical facts.
Oh it's supported by 'DNA evidence'... Well then, it HAS to be right! Not!
Yeah, the entire planet was a bunch of simple, sometimes almost tool less, primitives until this current technology development cycle... That despite
countless examples of advanced cities and artifacts, all suppressed to support the current idiotic 'school of thought'.
With no disrespect to the OP and the original author, to try to get a handle on a more realistic timeline, you need to look in the direction pointed
out by the Great Velikovsky.
If you take into account not the single cataclysmic event, but dual cataclysms, suddenly the pieces of anthropology, history, physics and astrophysics
(not to mention the state of the planet), start to make sense.
And maybe you get a hint at how valuable this 'lost' tribes first hand cultural accounts of tales of cataclysm might actually be.
Here is a hint to all you armchair anthropologists...
The Earth is NOT the same as it was in the 'past'. Great sections of the Earth are under water that used to be dry land... Sections that are dry
land USED to be under water.
Siberia used to be tropical... Hence the 'Woolly Mammoths'... Despite an excellent animated docu-drama... Not an Ice Age creature!
