Ishmael is interesting, but hardly 'THE TRUTH'. He keeps banging on about people 'locking up all the food', when in reality, agriculture was a pretty good way of avoiding famine and starvation, at least in the short term.

Please note that "if" is not the same as "if and only if". Scrawny people in skinny jeans, being intelligent, would know the difference. However, i must point out the difference for the meat heads.

"Characteristics of Civilization
All civilizations have certain characteristics. These include: (1) large population centers; (2) monumental architecture and unique art styles; (3) written language; (4) systems for administering territories; (5) a complex division of labor; and (6) the division of people into social classes."
so none of this exists without agriculture? are you truly saying that? I suppose that based upon your narrow-minded definition of civilization, you are right. hunter-gatherers and cultures such as the inuit aren't part of any civilization. they have no population centers, no architecture, no art, no written language, no system for administering territories, no division of labor or no division of class. these people must be anomalies. hmmm....
