If there is/was such a consensus, it didn't exist in the 1970s when I was in elementary school & we learned humans & mammoths coexisted.
20+ years ago there was a Mastadon find close to me in Michigan. It was noted then that there were marks on the leg joints that indicated the Natives used tools to
dismember the beast.
If I remember correctly there was also some evidence that they then stored some of the meat by submerging it in the bottom of lakes.
ding ding ding ....... winner
The issue, I believe, is did they co-exist in North America?
IIRC, all of the cave paintings are from Europe, where Home Sapiens evidence goes back 50K+ years, whereas the Clovis people, the first humans in North America came about 14K years ago.
True. For some "interpreters" :)
"Without a doubt, the ultimate Black Swan is whatever it was that permitted merely genetic human beings to emerge into full humanness just yesterday (cosmically speaking), some 50,000 years ago. .....
"....once man consciously enters the sensorium of time and space, he is implicitly aware of both Absolute and Infinite, and therefore Love, Truth, Justice, Beauty, Virtue, and Eternity. These are the things that define man, not his genome. ....."
Very interesting—worth the read.
The MÄori arrived sometime before A.D. 1300, and all moa genera were soon driven to extinction by hunting and, to a lesser extent, forest clearance. By about A.D. 1400 almost all moa are generally thought to have become extinct, along with the Haast’s Eagle which had relied on them for food. Recent research using carbon-14 dating of middens strongly suggests that this took less than a hundred years, rather than the period of exploitation lasting several hundred years which had been earlier believed. Moa it was what’s for dinner in New Zealand way before the European arrived.
I don't think hunting a 6 ton animal with a sharpened stick "easy pickins". I am sure the first jab really keyed in the mammoth real quick.
So your programing hasn’t taken affect.....Hmmmmm, don’t you know that the “SCIENCE IS SETTLED”???????
But seriously folks, what part of the Clovis spear point being European in origin and not Asian that they won’t accept.
Thanks for this thread.
There were other animals of that time period who went extinct also, at least one type of antelope and a long horned bison bit the dust along with the mammoths, IIRC.
You know, I've often wondered about "native Americans". Isn't anyone born in North America a native American?
On the other hand, maybe you're not a native if your ancestors came from somewhere else, in which case nobody, but nobody, is a native American.
I propose a solution. We have African Americans, Caribbean Americans and European Americans. So why don't we call those red guys "Siberian Americans"? Because (a) it's the truth, and (b) it would irritate the H* out of them.
The article also mentions that level 2 is sedimentary and I’d like to point out that a REALLY LARGE FLOOD would produce sedimentation as the waters retreat. Scientific evidence for biblical events is found OFTEN and NEVER acknowledged by these atheists.
