This type of find is not surprising if you had always kept an open mind when it comes to human origin.
There have been many types of humans that lived upon this earth. Some we resemble and others far different. Humans have looked recognizable as
humans for hundreds of thousands or millions of years. You have to understand and use your imagination to understand that millions if not billions of
people existed before 10,500 b.c. These people, some of them were not brutes but quite opposite. These people would 'flock' together, form communities
of rational minds which led them to dream, invent and progress and of course procreate forming small pockets of 'civilized man. One should not be
fooled into believing were were savages before 5000 b.c because we dont find sky scrapers or other things that resemble our current petroleum, plastic
Here are some images to give you an idea of what kind of 'man' was living upon the earth. Some were brutes, others were industrias.
Australopithecus Africanus lived around two milion years ago.
The hominid is thought to be one of our direct ancestors - already showing a larger brain
Homo rudolfensis lived around two million years ago. The
remains were found in Kenya - it's still not entirely clear where this ancestor fits into human evolution
neanderthal, if you look closely you can see American
indian, Aboriginie and caucasian features.
Another neanderthal. I dont know why they pose them as
looking as if they were drunk and and spitting our some slurred story
Homo ergaster lived 1.5million years ago. Very similar
to Home erectus, it originated in Africa. Ergaster is from the Greek word 'workman'. Very Asain looking no? But very modern considering this is man
from over a million years ago.
Homo erectus lived one million years ago. One theory is
that the species originated in Africa and migrated to India, China and Java. Another holds that they evolved in Asia and migrated to Africa
This guy Paranthropus boisei lived 2million years ago
and had a skull highly specialised for heavy chewing. The species is known as 'Nutcracker man' as it had the biggest cheek teeth and thickest enamel
of any known hominin. He look very asian as well.
So there is a little idea of what less than 10 men looked like within 2.5 million years.
Food for thought: Did you know that there are tribes, and modern humans that have yet to reach the stone age and have no idea of our modern world
while living mere hundreds of kilometers from a metropolis.
Here is modern man
In the past was the same.
