Thanks a lot for all the replies and answers. I just posted the "bedding" stuff just as another thing showing our evolution. Though, when I was
talking about ancient human ancestors, I meant from like a few million years back to around a couple hundred thousand, I think modern humans came
around the 200,000 - 175,000ish area is what is mostly accepted now. Though these things can change a lot, growing up I don't even remember the age
of humans even being remotely close to that number haha.
Also, I do agree with you in believing in continental drift, we can actually observe it happening as the years pass ourselves. I think like the
average drift for a continent is just an inch a year or something. I found a link with a lesser timeline of it, it only goes back to 150 million
years, but even at that point it is already somewhat broken up.
With your map you showed me was intriguing, but the oldest one only goes back 9000 BP which is very recent in the overall scheme of things. Any kind
of artifacts found dated earlier than that, have been all found in Africa. Though, I'll have to do some research on the places you mentioned.
And lastly, I really would like to see the article you found about an "industrial complex" being found 2.5 million years ago. I never heard anything
about that, and I feel like that would be huge news around the world if it was. We might fight crude tools that are over a 100,000 years old, but I
just have my reserves on the whole idea. I feel like if there were more advance civilizations around the world in prehistoric times then we would have
found a lot more by now. Who knows though, that is why I keep an open mind and I'll check more into the places you mentioned.
