If humans did kill them off they had good reason too and if the idiots that abound today can't see that they also would have been either throwing spears or being eaten then they are even dumber than they act!
I doubt that humans had much to do with killing off the big predators, however, as the american indians had a hard time with grizzlies let alone the huge meat gulping critters of the ice age.
The fact is, after the ice the water of the plains eventurally went away, as rain fall wasn't that great, the prey annimals died and then the big predators died from lack of food. This is known to many people but apparently facts don't stand in the way of a good story blaming humans for everything. Pretty soon we will have somehow made the dinos die off.
"So, not just any "humans", but Native Americans"
I'll second this one.
Chalk this one up to the "No Duh" category of anthropology.
Humans have a major impact on their environments, and always have.
This is all Bushfault!
Amen. Reparations! Reparations!
Amazing what they accept as good 'science'. They make pronouncements on theories they pull out of their @sses and call it good science, but let someone suggest that there could be a higher power involved in creating the universe and they insist that is 'not scientific' and thus not worth teaching against their other holy theory of 'evolution'. I guess 'good science' is whatever they pronounce it to be.
Now I can't find buffalo jerky anywhere. Accordingly, reparations are in order.
Would it also explain why their favorite position was doggy style?
I must remind myself to not visualize Helen Thomas of any age so soon after ingesting food.
A frozen mammoth dug up from the Siberian tundra was unveiled in central Japan in a preview of the six-month World Exposition that is expected to draw millions of tourists.
The beast, believed to have lived 18,000 years ago and preserved in a giant refrigerator, is a key exhibit of the Expo, which will open to the public one week later and will largely feature more modern wonders such as robots. Full-bodied mammoths have been found in the ground in the past, but the exhibit at the World Expo is billed as the most successful attempt yet to excavate and display almost the full animal.
The extinct mammoth on display has a nearly intact soil-coloured head covered with muscle tissue and some woolly hair, along with tusks and a front leg. This is not a mere pavilion, but a laboratory as we will do scientific research here, Toshio Nakamura, secretary-general of the exposition, told the opening ceremony of the Mammoth Lab. This mammoth has been really well preserved, Nakamura said, adding that the head has already been monitored through computerised technology. We would like as many people as possible to take a look at this mammoth and think about the past and the future of human beings. A group of Russian and Japanese scientists are also hoping to clone mammoths from remains of the animal by using elephant eggs.
Visitors can view the mammoth, which was excavated in 2002, from windows at the lab, where the temperature and humidity are controlled by computers. afp
Hold on there. The Indians caused mass exstinction? Now explain the NCAA silly ruling on Indian names, hmmmm?
Basically, there's no real evidence to support their theory, it's merely a theory.
The evidence doesn't really conform to their theory, but it doesn't disprove it either.
It's mainly people starting with a conclusion, and looking for evidence to support it, and trying to ignore or minimize evidence that contradicts it.
In the end there's nothing useful to learn from their theory, other than that they have an agenda.
Mmmmmmmm. BBQ Sloth! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
These folks need to be institutionalized, IMHO.
Yep. And there is an unbelievable amount of theories that people can take their pick from. I choose to pick truthful intelligent design which is not a theory.
