Hopefully for a Brighter Humanity

I once saw a cool thing at the Denver Colorado airport. A mother was standing with a young child and he started screaming and crying seemingly for nothing she tried to talk to him but he only cried louder. Then the father grabbed his arm and I felt dread that they were going to hurt the child to make him stop but instead the father grabbed him and held him in his arms and only loved the child more and he stopped crying, it was beautiful. I told the father that was commendable as it is easy to get angry even aggressive and to show love and kindness instead was inspiring and made me feel hopefully for a brighter...

Proud of Kindness and Caring

I am proud of a lot of achievements in my life but most of all of my acts of kindness and care. I realize that the wisest thing I have ever done was be kind. That said it is often a feat of bravery in a too often harsh and careless world. I feel for and am proud of all who are kind and care. Kindness is hard sometimes but it is never a waste, as it strengths humanity as a whole even if it seems squandered on some of its parts. Kindness has a universal value even if it can be often a trying or tiring endeavor at times it makes a better...

What About Neanderthals

“Damien keep in mind that prior to 10,000 years ago, neanderthals were extant, and evidence illustrates that not only did homosapiens cohabitate with them, but the general nature before then was scavenging and rationing food. Interestingly enough the domestication of certain animals is also indicative of the advancements of society.” Challenger My responce, well as far as I know Neanderthals died off and disappeared 40,000 years ago. Ref And yes, I know Neanderthals interacted and bred with humans and interestingly to me may have taught us their religious or ritualistic burial practices like 120,000 years ago. Ref Did Neanderthals teach us “Primal Religion” 120,000 Years...

Archaeology Knowledge Challenge?

Archaeology Challenge?   “Damien, there is a need to dig a Little Deeper than the culture in Turkey because technically Iraq civilization goes back further than turkey’s. But Australia’s culture is almost three times older dating back over 30,000 years. It is true that göbeklitepe is the oldest in the region but it is by far not the oldest civilization on the planet.” Challenger   Thanks for your response and I have been digging deeper for like three to four years. So, here is what I have found in response to your statements, Australia aborigines never truly left the stone age until colonization so no they did not have any advance culture like that of turkey and no Iraq civilization is not older at all. There is evidence of a single “Out of Africa” migration event around 72,000 years ago and of population spread which provided a basis for the modern Aboriginal cultural landscape dating back about 50,000 years. Interesting enough a stone snake monument from South Africa provides evidence of the “first human worship” 70,000 years ago. And while Iraq is technically at the originations of religious statism around 5,000 years ago even Egypt is a seemingly a little older 5,150 years ago in that endeavor but it is possible that Egypt too, has ancient connections to Turkey as well. So, sorry but not Iraq civilization could be connected as Sumerian loanwords seem to originate in or connect in some way with turkey which was the origination of farming starts then from there spread out to other parts of the world including Europe’s first farmers who came from...
