I'd like to start a discussion on human time line. First off Sumer is the earliest known civilization in the historical region of southern Mesopotamia, modern-day southern Iraq, during the Chalcolithic and Early Bronze ages, and arguably the first civilization ...Wikipedia Period:Late Neolithic - Middle Bronze Age Dates:c. 4500 – c. 1900 BC Humans are said to go back to about 200,000 years old Then a story I read said Early Humans Lived 300,000 Years Ago—But Had Modern Faces https://www.google.com/amp/s/relay....occo-early-human-fossils-anthropology-science I'm unsure about human ancestry it seems unclear. I'm a Christian and I see evidence of several civilization story's saying there was a flood, did this have something going to do with confounding the confusion on the ancient human time line? How far back does humanity really go? Is ancient Sumer the oldest known confirmed civilization? Is there any chance of one older? The Piri Reis map shows the western coast of Africa, the eastern coast of South America, and the northern coast of Antarctica. The northern coastline of Antarctica is perfectly detailed, with no ice. Could the map suggest something more ancient than sumer knowing more of the world? How much do modern man and science know for sure?
