      No problem.

      I love how it goes into the art&music and burial rituals.

        I don't have time to check, but more evolution sites are needed. Thanks for posting it, I'll get to it in about 4 years.

            Thanks Queen. From that site, here is the earliest human ancestor who routinely hunted large animals: http://humanorigins.si.edu/evidence/...eidelbergensis

            Seems, the species that we evolved from was hunting large animals 700,000 years ago.

            EDIT: No one knows who these guys evolved from. So we can only trace direct human ancestory back 1.3 million years ago.

            Further, there are stone tools some human ancestor used 2.6 million years ago too eat meat. So who knows how long we have actually been eating meat before we started using tools to do so.

            Seems we literally did evolve to eat the paleo diet.

                  It always bugs me out to know our species (or you know, similar species) has been around for MILLIONS of years. I guess our current calendar doesn't jive with that. Either way, very cool and will definitely be shared.

                  I wish they had an RSS feed so I could add it to my google reader. If anybody spots a link let me know. They may not have daily postings though.
                  I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

                    Thanks - I'll be dipping into that a lot over the coming months.

                      The link is from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington DC, a few blocks away from my work. It is a great museum, went there a few months ago with my young daughter although she got freaked out by all the skeletons in the evolutionary part of the museum so I did not have much time to view that part.
