Butchered Mammoth Suggests Humans Lived in Siberia 45,000 Years Ago

Now I’ve got a sudden craving for the flesh of the woolly mammoth. πŸ™‚ I seem to recall a story on the Discovery Channel back in the early 90’s where Russian paleontologists found an intact mammoth frozen in an ice – pack, but this guy is just a skeleton. Still, no telling WHAT we can learn from it about early human dietary habits. I’m certain that early Siberians ( Denisovans, perhaps ? ) WEREN’T vegetarians. & unless the climate was radically warmer, the mammoth & dinosaurs probably didn’t co – exist.

45,000 years – Don’t mention this to Young Earth Creationists….. πŸ™‚
