Whenever something incredibly ancient and incredibly cool turns up, there’s always someone on hand to shout that it’s evidence of aliens. Awesome as it would be to know ET was hanging out here in 10,000 B.C. (or whenever), the truth is both much simpler and much more interesting. See, you don’t need aliens to explain away intricate ancient objects. We humans have been capable of creating incredible stuff since before there were even humans.

Neanderthals weren't human? Homo Sapiens Neanderthanensis? Then why do many modern people have a small percentage of Neanderthan DNA in them? They would necessarily have to be human for that to happen. And "Saber-Toothed Tiger"? We've known for many decades they were not "Tigers" There are more factual errors in this flawed presentation than should be allowed on youtube. Appalling.
Those Ice Age batons are arrow/spear shaft straighteners, the shaft was placed in the hole and pressure was then applied to produce a straight shaft. Now days we carry essentials such as phones with personalised phone cases, back then this was an essential piece of kit and everyone had and used one. It's the original... "Dog & Bone" .......Phone
So apparently science believes that human intelligent evolved from killing.
That means they were scavenging dead rotting carcasses.
And they evolved from eating plants, to eating dead rotting carcasses because they started breeding.
And breeding means that their lineage was lost from what they were born from.
And so the people who they were born to, with no knowledge of anything except maybe walking around then started following carnivores.
And following carnivores that went wherever herbivores were, means that their plant food source would be left behind.
And those things he called sex toys, looked more like a some sort of artificial limb....or a piece of the first marionette.
The Puppeteer that made them will stand above the cave entrance and dance the marionette at the entrance of a cave to check if there was any Cave Bears inside.
They figured cave bears would attack the marionette, so they were basically cave bear checking devices.
Where calling cave bears from standing outside of a cave and yelling chicken usually got the cave person eaten.
So, yeah. It's just a part off of a marionette. Apparently a leg. 😐
Two tanka man?
there were many sculptures similar in early b.c (talking about #9) and were meant to symbolize fertility not meant to be erotic i don’t know where u got the info from but you shouldn’t just use wikipedia or the top sources when searching n look deeper
I'm all for evolution, but I'm not sure that the time line used at the moment is correct. We have all this going back as far as you have, but then we have modern man appearing in the blink of an eye,evolutionary speaking, maybe we haven't found enough old stuff to sort out this jigsaw just yet?
so basically we went from knowing nothing. To knowing it all to survive. To being amazing at one thing each and no knowing how live off the land or anything. in short we learn forget then relearn. life is amazing
You lost me when you didn't know what napping Flintstones ment . It's the process of making arrowheads of spearheads by chipping away at the edges. So you really don't understand even the basics of primitive culture. I'm disappointed in you.
I don't know where to start this time lol they had so many animals around they didn't need to kill a giant mammoth LOL and that Mammoth would have been a lot bigger then those caveman technically speaking they would have been shorter also but in your defense it could have been a baby
Simon are you for real do you think fast food places only happened for about a 400 year. One time in millions of years are you for real remember Mad Max they were civilized at first also and then they declined being that there were mostly children there ultimately no one would know how to operate certain things they would have to figure things out as they went along which brings us to the Here and Now. Hello Simon we're back LOL
Trust me cave women where not busy making sex toys. They were busy trying to avoid being raped by multiple men and giving birth alone or dying in the event.. no hospitals back then. And you would not make a sex toy with a clear pivot point where it was attached to something else. Looks more like a handle
Terrible video he can't stop rambling,those batons,or " sextoys, were used to straighten arrows and spears, you soak them in water to soften them up,then put the arrow or spear through the hole and pry it the direction you need to go in order to straighten it. This allows the arrow or spear to fly straight
Neanderthals were human. They created art, buried their dead with grave goods, and cared for sick/injured/ elderly tribe members. They could also speak, and survived for at least 300,000 years in an extremely hostile climate.
How can you date the hand-shadows on the cave wall? The color is red ocher, a mineral. You cannot date minerals like organic material. We actually have no idea how old they are. Using the wood litter or other organic material found at the same location assumes that this cave was visited only at one point in history, which is an unfounded assumption, highly unscientific.
Since we only find bones of a tie to people, the assumption that there were no fat people then is unscientific speculation. Why shouldn't there have been fat people? We know nothing about how much food was available to our ansestors. Those living in the tropics had year around food in abundance.
WOW. Simply amazing. Most of that information is new for me.
I am Amazed how much creative humans and other humanoids of that time were. Whatever time they were living in its quite extraordinary to see all of these inventions.
Its just like one morning you wake up and your loved one says to that lets teleport somewhere in the world. I mean its that crazy.
What a great video! It was just as fantastic this time as it was before. However, as northern Europeans have been shown by genetic tests to have from 2-4% Neanderthal genes, is it correct to say that Neanderthals are not human [or that Europeans are "mostly" human]?
I don't have think you can say that Neanderthals were not human since Homo sapiens and Homo neanderthalensis lived at the same time and interbreed with each other. They were for all intents and purpose a different species of human or possible a subspecies depending on your definition of speciation.
