    Archaeology 'news' is one of my favorite things to follow. Does anyone here follow it, too?
    Read this article when you find some time...it's fascinating. 'Rock art' being thought to be 14,800 years old? Wow. Supposedly, the oldest petroglyphs found yet, in North America.

    This is around the time frame scientists think humans started to settle in the Americas. Mind is blown.

    Just sharing...

    Oldest North American Rock Art up to 14,800 Years Old

    (sigh) I have been "with" fewer than ten women, though it "feels" more like thousands. I have avoided STDs, unwanted children, and drug useage. Thus, I have progressed to being a happy, unhappy old man. joc

    I married when I was 20 and I was a virgin. We did separate (he also filed) and did have a boyfriend. He and I reunited (he said he'd made a huge mistake *cough*)

    SO....I have been with very few.......and frankly, I'd never want my daughter to be a virgin...and I know she isn't at her age.

    Very interesting indeed, but I am not sure why you say "might just cause us to change our minds on evolution". While it does shed some light on human evolution, that is not the same as what you said.

    I will come back later to further elaborate, but what was meant was there seems to be a stirring amongst researchers and archaeologists asking the question ...did evolution begin with Africa or Asia?Depending who you listen to, it can make you wonder.

    yes, that's what evidence has been pointing to for as long as know, but some relatively recent evidence makes a case for asia. did you read the link? it's pretty interesting.

    The Paleolithic period was likely the most gender-equal time in history.


    "Anthropologists have typically assumed that in Paleolithic societies, women were responsible for gathering wild plants and firewood, and men were responsible for hunting and scavenging dead animals. However, analogies to existent hunter-gatherer societies such as the Hadza people and the Australian aborigines suggest that the sexual division of labor in the Paleolithic was relatively flexible. Men may have participated in gathering plants, firewood and insects, and women may have procured small game animals for consumption and assisted men in driving herds of large game animals (such as woolly mammoths and deer) off cliffs. Additionally, recent research by anthropologist and archaeologist Steven Kuhn from the University of Arizona shows that this division of labor did not exist prior to the Upper Paleolithic and was invented relatively recently in human pre-history. Sexual division of labor may have been developed to allow humans to acquire food and other resources more efficiently. Possibly there was approximate parity between men and women during the Middle and Upper Paleolithic, and that period may have been the most gender-equal time in human history. Archeological evidence from art and funerary rituals indicates that a number of individual women enjoyed seemingly high status in their communities, and it is likely that both sexes participated in decision making. The earliest known Paleolithic shaman (c. 30,000 BP) was female. Jared Diamond suggests that the status of women declined with the adoption of agriculture because women in farming societies typically have more pregnancies and are expected to do more demanding work than women in hunter-gatherer societies. Like most contemporary hunter-gatherer societies, Paleolithic and the Mesolithic groups probably followed mostly matrilineal and ambilineal descent patterns; patrilineal descent patterns were probably rarer than in the following Neolithic period."

    Still doesnt change the fact that the human species Homo sapiens has the much longer fossil record in Africa.

    but that's the point of the article...to cast doubt perhaps as to where evolution originated...did you read the link?

    The oldest petroglyphs in North America were discovered in Winnemucca Lake, Nevada.
