Re: Complex Issues Don't Need Simplistic Answers
but i do doubt that a '40,000' year old culture could only amount to 300,000 people
There are many factors that can and has caused this to occur, some natural some man-made. Such natural occurrences as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, famine etc. plus diseases which can limit the number of people. Then life expectancy differed, not to mention wars and various accidents, being killed by predators, and the ratio of live births to those reaching adulthood was very small when compared to modern times.

Re: Complex Issues Don't Need Simplistic Answers
The similarity between the Biblical & Assyrian accounts of the Babel myth proves nothing. Both these peoples are Hamito-Semetic and thus many of their myths would be similar. If they prove the event then why are there no accounts of this in writings from other peoples ie: Sino-Tibetan, Indo-European, Uralo-Altaic, Eskimo-Aleut, Mayan, Polynesian etc.
