I wonder ( If those hypothetical civilizations are out there ) just how advanced they would be ? Could be observing us now ? Weighing us in the balances & finding us wanting ? Would they intervene in our affairs if we show we’re not interested in blowing ourselves up, poisoning this world, stripping our world bare of resources, then moving on to other planets ? Part of me would be curious to find out, part of me just likes to ponder this mystery. This universe seems too grand & large for all known life forms to be concentrated on 1 small planet orbiting a medium – size class GO2 star in arm of this sized galaxy.
Now I’ve got a sudden craving for the flesh of the woolly mammoth. 🙂 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….. 🙂
The slashed and punctured bones of a woolly mammoth suggest that humans lived in the far northern reaches of Siberia earlier than scientists had previously thought, a new study finds.
