Humanity was more united

Recommended Posts

About 100,000 years ago the conditions of the planet were more rude. The earthly environment was not like today. There were beasts, natural traps like precipices etc. The man needed to hunt, search for water and live in caves. Obviously, there were no doctors, drugs etc. So, the men needed to stay together if no would die early. There were no wars or clan fights. Only when the first civilizations emerged was that started the wars. Humanity was more united.

Do you have any evidence that there were no wars?

If we look at tribes living in more "natural" and "ruder" conditions today, in for example the Amazon rain forest or New Guinea, we find wild beasts, poisonous insects, precipices, floods, forest fires,etc. And yet, despite this, or perhaps because of it, clan fights and mini-wars are commonplace. Humanity is united and divided at the same time.

The tribe (clan) is everything. Other tribes are treated with suspicion, although there may be some exchange of young people between adjacent tribes for marriage (a smart genetic move). Inter tribal warfare is commonplace and a significant cause of death, These are established facts you can confirm in any textbook on anthropology. What evidence do you have that things were different 100,000 years ago?

You claim there were no drugs or doctors 100,000 years ago. Perhaps not, but have you heard the expression "medicine man". At some point in the last 100,000 years and perhaps earlier, humans had identified plants that had medicinal properties and were using them effectively.

You say men needed to stay together if they were to avoid dying early, yet die early is just what many of them did.

And a quite minor point - most of our ancestors did not live in caves. It is simply that caves are the most likely place where the remains of our ancestors, their tools and their rubbish will be preserved.
