The "docile" agriculturist was able to store food and live densely with others and would have been more than a match for hunter/gatherer bands who also had to deal with periodic shortages with no stored food to draw on. Starvation and predation of the H/G were most likely the cause of the Agriculturists prevailing, not direct competition.
Ok .... oil had to come from something/animal/fishes ... :)
It could have favored the planners, meek or not. A hunter wakes up, "me hungry, me go kill, me eat". That takes care of today. The farmer wakes up, sows his crop, and waits, while living off of last year's harvest which will carry him through the year. Of course, he still hunts too, but can take a day off from time to time to see a play or go to a museum. Less dangerous than hunting woolly mammoth.
That assume there was a where, which begs the question.
but then I repeat myself ... did they "self" generate?
one wonders .... :)
and if all that DNA stuff is true, then why are there bald men? If 80% of body heat goes out the head, then there should never ever be bald men .... evolution seems to work whenever it wants to ....and, it has to work all the time ... if not, poof ... we're all gonzo ....
If you heard the evolutionist on Coast last night, you would be questioning a lot. I bought his book a few months ago. He is the happiest man on earth because he has figured it out. He points out that DNA does not rule the cell, and he has a point because there are cells without DNA, without a nucleus at all, yet they are alive. He points out that intelligence does not originate in the nervous system because creatures, single cells, even plants, develop behavior without any nervous system. Can't think of a reason there must be electrons and protons, but we can make interesting, useful, and entertaining things out of them. At some point in our infinite regress to original causes we must come to a question for which there is no answer, which point varies with each person and at each moment of his intellectual development.
Well with all that I just say ok, if I'm wrong on Evolution and Darwinism then what am I out at the end of my life ... but on the other hand, if Creationism is true and in which I believe, then ......
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ...
In the sense of the humble origin of the greatest advance of civilization--the star, the stable, the three gifts--Merry Christmas
Thanks .... take care ....
