And we won't even bring up Easter Island prior to whitey.

Don't. It's ugly. You've read 'Collapse'?

I wonder whether these "native americans" had the chance to read Al Gore's book on global warming.

Certainly, they ended the ice age, what with their campfires and methane farts from eating so much mammoth fur, so early man must have been responsible for the early global warming.

ROFL!

Good thing they weren't smart enough to develop insecticides...er, I guess those would have been 'homicides'.

The mass extinctions coincided with both the end of the last Ice Age and the arrival of humans in the Americas around 11,000 years ago. This timing has made it difficult for scientists to isolate the cause of the species' disappearance.

Another huge embarrassment for National Geographic coming...

Remember when they "proved" that we were all descended from one African female? Cornrows and all? I'm sure they's rather not talk about it.
They had it nailed beyond any challenge whatsoever.
And they were 100% wrong.

Is it wrong that the most upsetting part of this whole thing (to me) is that I'll never get to know what giant sloth or wooly mammoth taste like with Stubbs BBQ sauce?

If only PETA had been around 11,000 years ago, then no doubt the woolly mammoths would still be here today.

I don't see why not. It's not even controversial. It's a simple mathematical fact that at some point in the not-too-distant past we are all descended matrilineally from a single person.

Perhaps prehistoric humans took their drinks "on the rocks" and depleted the planet of it's ice reserves?

It's the "Native-Americans" fault! You know, the ones who everybody says were sensivtive to the environment. What is PETA doing to condemn them?
