    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.

    Please remember it ain’t just white people who made a bunch of scientific inventions... it’s been a collective exploration done by different races and sexes.

    The reason why those last humans died\disappeared sooner is because they were weak and less intelligent and did not have excellent survival techniques.

    There is no evidence for change in the primary of any animal. Only secondary etc. Evolution. Not in its primary. No fish became land animals. No monkeys turned Human. There is no proof of it and more

    God made our life balance to fulfill emotions. Perfect life is boring, and hardship is challenging. Thats the purposes of creating woman.

    All these Evolution theory was formed by man. We ignore the creator and and admire the wonders created by the creator. In the beginning God made heaven and earth. On the 7th day he made man. Homo sapiens didn't originate from apes. Think about it there is a living God that made the seas , the moon and even all the things man is trying to explore in space. Why not ask yourself how did they just emerge and why is there only life on Earth. He has made these things for man to adore and glorify his name not to form theorys like evolution
