What I'm saying is that we don't have much in the way of knowledge about what came long before the Egyptians and before the Greeks. All that we have from before that are a few things from the Sumerians and a few things from the oriental and Hindi writings. All of them talk about people and civilizations that came before. They keep moving back the beginning of man. I wonder how many time we may have risen only to be knocked back to near extinction and had to start again. Geneticists tell us that twice we have been near to being wiped out and that our genetic diversity is tiny compared to most other species. At one point 70,000 years ago man were brought to as few as 2000 people from whom all future humans were descended. there have been other periods when we were thinned out to just a few thousand. ??? What might have happened to them? The one 70,000 years ago was most likely a huge volcanic eruption. There was one that may have been caused by some sort of pandemic. Who knows what level these people might have been at before their fall?
