So Man suddenly became intelligent some 100,000 years ago.

Why? Because lightning either hit a tree the stone age man was standing at and possibly even burnt his feet. Or maybe it showed him that fire could create heat and that meat could be fried (but not necessarily burnt all the time) and thereby be eaten in a more comfortable and tasteful matter at the dinner.

Remember we have mostly been able to reproduce our species. This has not always been accompanied by a corresponding way or level of intelligence. We do not resemble the apes or chimpanzees anymore because our brains has made us appear different, both because of our surroundings and living environment as well as events and circumstances which happens as we live our lives.

If you are supposed to be a religious person, you are assumed to be intelligent because this was something which God made happen. No need to believe in evolution theory (including dinosaurs), because everything which happened before the birth of Jesus becomes irrelevant or invalid.

Therefore, no need to believe in the creation of the Universe either, which was supposed to have happened some 13,8 billion years ago. Even after such a long time has passed since its creation, we do not yet have any proof that it was "intelligently" made or crafted (by someone).

9100 to 8850 BCE

Folsom and Clovis man [DNA proof], east of Rockies, but not very dang far east.

There are burial grounds about a 1,000 years old not too far away from my home town of Neoga Il. And the name Neoga means running or jumping dear, depending...


Robert,
I read about the Clovis Culture; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clovis_culture

I don't know, i haven't studied them, so i don't know much about these people.

John.

On July 2 2012 I posted, "I still feel that ID should form a "God" team with Johnney Guinness." I saw this coming. This is producing most excellent results.

As for the Native American Indians, with the stone tools, ask them how they got there! They will tell you that "The Creator" created them thousands of years ago. They will tell you that the sky Gods came down from the sky and created them. The Indians know exactly where they came from! They know better than any western culture or white European man.
John.


I do believe some Native Americans have in their legends a long journey over ice. I'll see if I can track that back down.
BTW: 12,000, or 17,000, or 30,000-these still fit "created them thousands of years ago."

Ozzfan,
In a message where we are discussing who God is, its nice of you to find a flaw in my knowledge of computer processors. Thanks for that my friend. If i ever have holes in the plumbing in my house, i will know where i can find a man who is good at finding holes. Thanks Ozzfan.


Johnney, no problem. I'm glad that in a thread about God you can bring up computer processors and plumbing, but I'll return the favor and look to you if I ever need my septic cleaned out as you seem pretty good at shoveling it around. Your welcome Johnney.
