At one time there were several ancient human-like advanced primates on Earth, but for some reason it was Homo sapiens, not #neanderthals, Australopithecus, or Denisovans who dominated our planet. How did this come to be? What happened when these ancient people came into contact? Was there #adaptation? #Evolution?! What did humans do when we met neanderthals?

As a crustacean poet once said, “The Human World, is a mess,” and boy was he correct. Our history is a patchwork of fossilized bones spread across the world. In the last 20 years, we’ve made huge leaps in our understanding of the human story, but we’re still trying to understand exactly *where* we came from and *why* we’re still here! This is especially confusing when you learn there were so many other ancient human-like creatures on this planet throughout our long history.

If you take one thing away from this series, I want you to know you’re a combination of millions of ancient animals toiling, adapting, evolving and breeding. Just ponder that for a while.

This is a HUGE source for all things human origins.
The species that you and all other living human beings on this planet belong to is Homo sapiens. During a time of dramatic climate change 300,000 years ago, Homo sapiens evolved in Africa. Like other early humans that were living at this time, they gathered and hunted food, and evolved behaviors that helped them respond to the challenges of survival in unstable environments.

Evolution of Earth
The evolution of this planet and its atmosphere gave rise to life, which shaped Earth’s subsequent development. Our future lies in interpreting this geologic past and considering what changes–good and bad–may lie ahead

How Human Beings Almost Vanished From Earth In 70,000 B.C.
Add all of us up, all 7 billion human beings on earth, and clumped together we weigh roughly 750 billion pounds. That, says Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson, is more than 100 times the biomass of any large animal that’s ever walked the Earth. And we’re still multiplying. Most demographers say we will hit 9 billion before we peak, and what happens then?
