The use of plants as medicines predates written human history. A 60,000-year-old Neanderthal burial site, "SHANIDAR-4", in northern Iraq has yielded large amounts of pollen from 8 plant species, 7 of which are used now as herbal remedies.
In the written record, the study of herbs dates back over 5,000 years to the Sumerians, who described well-established medicinal uses for such plants as laurel, caraway, and thyme.
Ancient Egyptian medicine of 1000 B.C. are known to have used garlic, opium, castor oil, coriander, mint, indigo, and other herbs for medicine and the Old Testament also mentions herb use and cultivation, including mandrake, vetch, caraway, wheat, barley, and rye.
I do not understand why some can not accept this possibility and of the the possibility that other intelligent life beings [aliens] have always been with humans as they have evolved?
It's not fact just because you came up with a theory.
Because there is absolutely no evidence for it , if Aliens had been holding our hand through our history we would have solid evidence that they exist yet we don't , surely now we're all grown up they would be out in the open taking credit for the great job they did but they aren't .
Because there is absolutely no evidence for it , if God had been holding our hand through our history we would have solid evidence that he exists yet we don't , surely now we're all grown up he would be out in the open taking credit for the great job he did but he isn't .
If belief in aliens is based on faith rather than evidence, then it is cultism, and looses all scientific validity.
