I’ve had a renewed interest in the evolution of our species ever since it was announced that some of us have a little Neanderthal DNA in us. It now appears that some of our ancestors got their game on with the neighbours in the cave next door, which helps explain some of the differences in our current evolutionary state. Things like red hair, blonde hair, blue eyes and freckles seem to have something to do with hanging out a lot with the neighbours if you know what I mean.
We all know that early man took to painting the cave walls at some point. Was it decorative? Was it spiritual? Was it a way to impress the ladies? No one can really say. We also know those cave dwellers also made small female figurines like the Venus of Willendorf to pass the time. Were they goddesses or were they something else? We still don’t know with absolute certainty.
