I’ll just be over there, behind that six-inch-thick Lexan.

    Even if this was him saying it, it doesn’t affect his idea or his science.

    Not Darwin and not accurate either.

    Ironworking from meteoric iron has gone on in Africa since about 2500 BC and iron smelting was roughly contemporaneous with the Middle East, somewhere between 2000 and 1500 BC – predating the discovery of iron in Europe. Copper smelting in the region is even older, dated at between 2500 and 3000 BC.

    So much for the axe/spear/arrowhead argument.

    A diamond is, in reality, just a rock. It’s value comes from the desire of men to have it. If you have no need of shiny rocks, it’s just another pebble in the dirt.

    And there you have it. Really, they didn’t need all the extra ‘crap’ that became what we so prize today. And honestly, how many people today wish that they could walk around for an hour or two, and have all that they need for the day or even week? But we are stuck working 40+ hours a week, if we can get work, and are up to our necks in debt. Until the climate change, I think they had the better lives. Though with the changes long ago, the over population, and hooking them on our consuming life style, its… Read more »

    I’m not an accomplished farmer or outdoorsman (so correct me if I’m wrong here), but living off the land is probably more taxing than working most 9 to 5 jobs that we have today. Also, it’s probably more than 40 hours a week.
