This is not proof that the Book of Mormon is true.

I wonder if they ever tried constructing a mnemonic memory circuit.

Dr. Barkai and Prof. Gopher say that the blades found in Qesem Cave distinguish themselves through the sophistication of the technology used for manufacturing and mass production.

In a staffing conference, it was determined that Prof. Gopher was the obvious choice to dig in and see what he could find...

late Lower Paleolithic period, 200,000-400,000 years ago as part of the Acheulo-Yabrudian cultural complex, a geographically limited group of hominins who lived in modern-day Israel, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.

And they have been at war with one another ever since.....

Flint forming for blades does not require powerful blows, just well controlled blows. It is not, BTW, difficult to learn or do.

It is even easier if you cook the flint in a fire. You can flake it then with simple pressure on the blade face.

The title is confusing, I associate ‘blade’ with metallurgy.

People made edged utensils long before they understood metallurgy or knew how to work metal to produce actual blades. Some primitive people still make edged utensils out of bone, wood, etc.

The most interesting thing I read about all this is ‘Book of the Sword’ by Richard Francis Burton.

Yea, well, this article is somewhat misleading; what they don’t tell you is that there’s significant disagreement about whether the creatures who made these instruments were Neanderthals, (Democrat Ancestors), or modern humans, (everyone else).

while the animal hide was processed elsewhere.

you know why.
