    Humans. We have been around for a while now. When we think about our past we think about ancient civilizations, the pyramids, stuff like that. But this is only a tiny, tiny part of our history.

    Let me check the Bible. I’m sure somewhere in this fairytale crap there’s some info on this. Just need to get by the talking snake and the whole God who is all powerful and knowing but couldn’t foresee his creations would fail him so he drowned them all.

    Booooooo! This evolutionary crap has been totally discredited & disproved. We did not evolve from a rock, from an amoeba, a fish, or a monkey! There is ZERO evidence of this...dogs produce dogs, humans produce humans and nothing else has ever been observed. True, life was substantially different 10,000 years ago compared to today, but we learned & made life better, period.

    9.8 Christians and Jews dislike this video . . . they all know that God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. They just disagree as to what day of the week He rested on. But they do know that Adam ate an apple and that's where babies come from. They also disagree on "Jesus Love Me This I know" . . . the Christians say, For "The Bible Tells Me So." . . . The Jews say, "Say what?" It appears the Jews haven't read the Bible, but then again, neither have most Christians. Go figure.

    We’re Christians. Pangea isn’t real Neanderthals we’re never here. It’s all. Adam and Eve where not monkeys or fish. Nothing like this in the Bible. I think this video isn’t all true.

    Kids born after 50,000 BC can't hunt or gather. All they know is cook food, plant seed, be social, form tribe, eat berries and lie.
