Another failure by God[edit]

'So Deity Candidate number (whatever):

You created a system where all 'unbaptised' persons are sent to join the opposition team - thereby ensuring they have an automatic massive advantage.
You also put enough background detail (astronomy, fossils etc) so that people of a logical disposition see no reason to believe you were involved in the creation of the universe.
Many of the life forms you created are #very# badly designed or are otherwise problematic (even Reception Class infants are expected to, and do, produce better).
You destroy large numbers of your creations for illogical reasons, as collateral damage etc, while other candidates do not do so.
Your 'Heaven' involves no more than having those who successfully pass through your survival course singing your praises for eternity: it has already been closed down on 'Deceased Sentients (Cruelty Towards on Grounds of Excessive Neglect and Absence of Stimulation)' grounds.
(Other problems)

Give us good reason why we should not mark you 'F-for-failure, no possibility of resitting Universe Creation Foundation Level' Anna Livia (talk) 14:36, 10 July 2021 (UTC)

Are there cultures that existed before 10,000 BC?[edit]

Or maybe 4K BC. I want to look them up.--2friedeggs (talk) 22:58, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

JerichoWikipedia is the oldest I am aware of. GeeJayK (talk) 23:15, 19 June 2022 (UTC)
One can argue convincingly that there were different cultures long before 10K BCE based on material evidence left behind. By 10,000 BCE almost the entire habitable world had been visited by humans (many Pacific Islands had not yet been inhabited yet. e.g., Hawaii was not occupied until 1000 CE). People across the globe had to adapt to widely divergent ecosystems, and hence had different cultures to adapt to them. Different cultures are evident from archaeological findings of material culture, but it's reasonable to conclude that people living in arid regions lived differently than people living on coastal areas and people living in mountains. People would have also needed different languages to describe their environments. Bongolian (talk) 23:47, 19 June 2022 (UTC)
The Wikipedia article on human historyWikipedia is probably a good jumping point. 10,000 BC is roughly the beginning of the "neolithic revolution" (agriculture and domestication of animals) for humans, but hunter-gatherer human artifacts have been found long before that. So it depends on what you mean. (talk) 00:08, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
According to Cambridge University, Australian Aborigines (or, more properly their ancestors) first entered Australia some 60,0000 years ago. It's the oldest I can find from a quick search.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 07:34, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
