Born and raised in America where almost everyone believes in one of the 10,000 + denominations of Christianity. Religions come in and out of existence constantly with recycled variations of beliefs and powers of supernatural beings.
My belief for more than 50 years is in the disciplines of science to understand the relationships of evidential facets of artifacts and fossils to the life styles and perspectives of prehistory and history of Anatomically Modern Humans.
My fascination is the evidence of the Biblical Abrahamic era that offers a rare glimpse into beliefs and visions of AMH who were alive during that time period.
I believe the evidence of us walking out of Africa on a journey that would span enumerable decades of human generations. We were hunter gatherers during that time trading stories in a myriad of evolving languages. Our prehistory stories of beliefs were passed down in oral tradition by our ancestors as our clans traversed the deserts of the Middle East and occasionally crossed paths.
A mainstream of AMH migration out of Africa crossed through the Mesopotamian area of the Middle-East. Some of our ancestors lingered in the area taking advantage of the plentiful opportunities for hunting-gathering and eventually agronomy. When writing was invented about 3200 BCE in the Mesopotamian area, converting stories from the migrating nomads to stories inscribed on clay tablets and other medium was very popular. The inscribed stories would help flow prehistory stories into stories that would be edited centuries later into the Hebrew Bible which will later become the Christian old testament.
There is indisputable evidence that our planet and all species evolved to extinction or remain extant as the flora and fauna of our planet in the 21st century.
The genetic heritage of members of the AMH human species are genetically over 90% the same and many contend as much as 99.9% the same. I know that I am and you are a member of a beautifully evolved species.
