Hello, before posting any links or scientific data - I'd like to get a couple views on how old some people think humanity is, was, or could be? Does anyone think that humans may have been around for millions of years?
Imagine if this were true and we, at this stage in civilization think we are the pinnacle of what humans have ever been..
First my opinion and after some input I'll post links that I think are viable to this question.
I believe mankind has been around for millions of years. Yes millions, the earth recycles itself via earthquake, tsunami, and various other earth changing events to include non earthly events, with few survivors. Some of these survivors retain knowledge and "try" to rebuild and this scenario is were we get some of the ancient artifacts that are found throughout the world. What if ancient civilizations were based on these survivors and there were no brickmasons, no mechanics, no artist or mathematicians, no doctors... or better yet a few of each located in random areas of the world.
Which would explain why some ancient civilizations seemed to pick up the pieces much faster then others where some professions did not survive. For instance most people would think that brain surgery is a modern medical procedure. Well, theres proof of ancient brain surgery. This isn't to far fetched and it just takes an open mind to understand we are just in the cyber and fossil fuel age.
Some examples (without links yet) are the baghdad battery - the grooved spheres (which were dated to 2 billions years plus some) and there are many more. Archeology is kinda of my new interest along with various fields of astrology - astrophysics - astrobiology - theoretical physics to name a few. In a way they all tie in together.
I do understand that subject matter is viewed as an attack on Christianity and would further state I was once a Christian so save yourself the trouble....
Anyways - thoughts?
