Did our ancient ancestors sleep sitting up?

It would have been prudent for Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon man to sleep in a sitting up position. Weapons against animals that attacked them for food could be kept close by easily accessible before they had fire to keep them away. They would have put their backs against a stone wall of a cave more because of the room needed to accommodate their numbers and so sitting up sleeping solved at least 2 problems faced by our ancestors.

How did Cro-Magnon become a village?

Cro-Magnon people entered into village life by staying in one place and constructing homes there, instead of following the reindeer herds in their seasonal migration.

Why did early modern humans create art?

Because they were just as "smart" as we are today!

They appreciated beauty just as much as we do now,

and similarly wanted to capture that "beauty" on walls

or by carving/creating other significant objects.

What did neanderthals do all day?

Pretty much what you would do if you and a bunch of friends were dropped in the middle of prehistoric earth; make sure you had shelter for the night, keep an eye out for predators, find or collect water from a source, gather food and other resources your camp needed like wood, hunt for meat and fur, sleep, and spend time with one another to keep the stress of uncivilized life from getting to you all.

All of the above takes a lot more time (enough to fill the whole day) when is just you and your own ingenuity.

What animals did cavemen hunt?

mammoths, young saber tooth tigers, and plant life including: wild berrys , nuts , wild grains.

bisons were also hunted. this can be deduced from the cave paintings which are believed to depict the lifestyle of the cavemen.

neanderthals(the real cavemen) also hunted ancient wild ox mountain goat and cave bear also enemies

How long have human beings existed?

200,000 years ago

Human have existed for roughly half a million years, but this answer depends on the exact definition of "human". Fossil evidence shows that several human-like lineages developed during the past million years or so. >From fossils, the appearance of Homo sapiens is dated at about half a million years, and of anatomically modern Homo sapiens at about a hundred thousand years, values that are also supported by genomic evidence. Another data point, although not something you asked directly, is that the recent complete sequencing of the genome of the chimpanzee, which is the closest living relative of humans, suggests that chimps and humans diverged from their common ancestor about 6 million years ago. Of the many intermediate related species that have existed since then, only chimps and modern humans survive today.

Did neanderthal know how to use fire?

Of course they did! Early man knew how to use fire long before the Neanderthals and it was a skill that was passed on through the evolutionary generations. One of the earliest species of hominids to use fire would have to be Homo Erectus.

How long ago did cavemen live?

The last 'cavemen', Neanderthals, probably lived about 20,000 years ago. And there may be some misunderstanding about them actually living in caves, though they certainly did spend time in caves because we've found fire pits and bones of animals that they hunted, some theories suggest that they only lived in caves during the winter months, and since they lived during the ice-age, they probably spent a lot of time in caves, but in warmer months, they most likely lived in shelters that were built of wood and hides. Since these things are bio-degradable, there's no way for use to be sure that they did this. Though some archaeologists found holes in the ground where wooden poles were placed to make huts.

There is also a theory that they did not exactly go extinct, but interbred with Cro-Magnons and are now in the modern gene pool.

Why aren't Neanderthals mentioned in the Bible yet we know they existed?

One_Answer:">One Answer:When humans wrote the bible they had no way of knowing (or thinking) that there could of been such a thing as a Neanderthal or human evolution, just as they had no way of thinking such a animal as a dinosour could of existed. They would of seen the human race and thought it was like that forever. Another View:There are probably thousands, if not millions of things that existed in the past or exist today that are not mentioned in the Bible. The Bible never claims to be an Encyclopedia of human history or any other kind of history. It is indeed true in the facts of history it touches, but it is limited in terms of its focus.

The Bible also deals with matters of eternal significance for all mankind, and the outworking of God's plan through His people, the Jews. Thus, it would be surprising if Neanderthals were mentioned unless they somehow intersected with Jewish or New Testament history.

Many things are also only mentioned in a general sense which applies to all people groups, even if not mentioned, such as the fall into sin, the effects of the worldwide flood, that man has a special place above the animals and was created in God's image etc. All this certainly applies to Neanderthal man, as it does to the many other people groups which are also not mentioned in the Bible by name such as the Eskimos.

***************************

My thought is that the writers of the Old Testament had no real idea of the actual history of the earth. They happened to be part of the civilizations that invented writing (there is evidence that the Hebrews became literate about 700-600 BC) so their thoughts and accomplishments are recorded, whereas the many millions of other humans that were living all over the earth at the time had no voice (writing) and no interaction with the middle east.

All civilizations have origin myths and stories that are passed down for many generations and if you investigate them they have lots of gods who they use as guides and helpers in their journey through life, Christianity is only different in that it caught on even though it has no more proofs than any other...and it beginning myths are just as silly as the others.

When the Hebrews made up their myths they had no idea that there was much, much more to the world than what they could see. The myths grew out of their particular world-view and culture of the times. They had no idea what science was and that it could and would be used to disprove the stories they wrote down.

We know for a fact that real humans (not Neanderthals) were living in the Americas, both North and South, by at least 13,000 BC...real humans were living in Australia by 40,000 BC...real humans were living in Europe and Asia by 50,000 BC...and in Africa by 200,000 BC...Neanderthals were living in Europe, Asia, and parts of the middle east from about 250,000 BC to about 25,000 BC

As for what these facts do to the Biblical myths/stories I can't tell you, but it kind of messes up Adam and Eve and the Flood and the tower of Babel...in my mind at least.

Peace

********************************

Another View:It is my opinion that Neanderthal Man is indeed mentioned in the Bible. The origins of the word Neanderthal dates back to 1860. The location of the fist evidence of Neanderthal Man was in a valley near Düsseldorf, Germany called the Neanderthal Valley. Since the word Neanderthal didn't come into existence until well after the bible was written, another term or word would have been used in it's place.

Consider:

Genesis 6:4

"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."

Numbers 13:31-33

"But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we."

"And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature."

"And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."

Deuteronomy_3:13">Deuteronomy 3:13"And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants."

Deuteronomy 2: 19-21

"And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession."

"That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;"

"A people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; but the LORD destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead:"

These are but a few examples of "giants" contained in the King James Version of the modern day bible. The most famous one that most everyone knows is the story of how David slew the giant Goliath with a sling. It is not inconceivable that the remains that we call Neanderthal Man in current times are indeed the "giants" referred to in the Bible.

For more information as to how and where these "giants" came into existence, I recommend reading the Book Of Enoch. Enoch was Noah's grandfather. His writings were considered "Holy Scripture" for many years prior to being discredited by the Council of Laodicea (Roman Catholic Church) in 336 A.D.

For even more information on giants in biblical times search the word Nephilim.

What is the meaning of 'let the dead bury their dead'?

This means that he should not worry about burying his dead relative, but to do the work that the Lord had commanded him to do and let his relatives or the villagers worry about burying his dead relative. The lord is saying that all will die eventually, hence "Let the dead bury the dead".

Most commentaries suggest Jesus meant, "Leave the (spiritual) dead to bury the (physical) dead" (Fitzmyer 1981: 836; Liefeld 1984: 935).

In addition to its biblical context stated above it is also used my Marx in The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte. Marx uses it in the context of the social revolution of the 19th century. He utilizes this biblical quote to emphasize the idea that the revolution must not rely on the social models of the past in order to derive its roots, but rather must reject all past illusions (such as religion or bureaucracy) and instead build itself in the present as a modern revolution that springs forth a new system that does posses the faults of past constructs. So in a sense Marx is calling upon the new revolution to remove itself from the historical patterns that have led to the reoccurring rise of the bourgeois.

In this sense "let the dead bury the dead" means let the flawed bourgeois social systems die once and for all for their repetitive flaws (let the dead just die, do not keep resurrecting them in the present social system) (Marx 1852: 595)

What types of tools were used with traditional horse hair plaster over wood lathe How does one use these tools to make perfectly smooth walls?

I would assume a simple, but long wooden trowel similar to a mortar trowel, perhaps with some upturned skids at the end so overlapping strokes do not make unwanted marks in the plaster.

I have seen how Indonesian labourers apply cement rendering in Jakarta (live there) many many times- and they get perfectly smooth surfaces with minimal & rather primitive hand tools- so I'd assume the process is very much the same- for both internal and external walls. This has been a construction process here dating back at least 400 years according to one palace restoration foreman.

They 'throw' with moderate force large globules of the render onto the wall 20cm widths at a time, then smooth it immediately over with a mortar trowel- each throw overlapping the next. Once the labourers have roughly attached the render well, another worker with a long straight-edge plank screens over the wall to remove any bumps and detect unwanted dips.

The final labourer uses a string line attached flush with the upper-most )same plane) corner of the wall and uses this plumb line to carefully scrape off excess render as it is maybe 50%+ dry. Final touch up applications are made to the small air bubbles.

Summarily- it can be done- and superbly with simple hand tools- it just requires a lot of patience.

What is the process of throwing a spear?

In throwing a spear, there are two things to keep in mind: Accuracy, and Distance. You can throw for distance, but have little to no accuracy. You can throw for accuracy close up, and be successful, but at close distances, it's more of a lance, than an actual spear. For both accurate, and good distance, you will need to practice; Balance-Centering the spear in your hand in such a way that with no grip the front, and back sit level. Strength- Pulling back as far as you can with your throwing arm, using your other arm out stretched as a counter balance, and increased power. Think "trebuchet". Aim- Using both eyes, focus directly on the smallest part of the target that you desire to hit. Aim small, hit small. At the completion of the throw, your throwing hand should be pointed at the target. You can practice with haybales, and paper targets at first, trying a distance of 25 yards, working to increase that to a little more each time. Each spear has a different balance, and a different minute of angle (MOA). A Samburu spear will not throw like an Assegai, and certain "spears" are in truth "lances", so throwing those will feel like throwing a rock. A German Boar Spear comes to mind. Enjoy a new found hobby!
