A very small part of African megafauna is still with us. We are in the process of wiping it out in the timescale of a few decades (we would have already wiped out the African elephant if a move to preservation hadn’t gone in the other direction, and created reserve area specifically to save them. And that effort is currently in complete failure to save rhinos which are going extinct at an accelerated space. The elephant itself is again endangered and nothing garanties it won’t end up badly within the next 50 years).
Meanwhile the hunters with spears lived with that disappeared fauna for thousand of years. It’s disparition seems overnight only a geological scale, comparatively what we are doing currently with so many species is so fast it would be like a Thanos snap.
African megafauna still with us after another many more millenia , and human numbers at colossal levels in comparision to then, and a continent pillaged for resources on massive scale. And, look at the conflict/weaponry/hunting with rifles etc that’s raged there. Yet we are supposed to believe a tiny human population wiped these animals out virtually overnight with spears? Peoples, incidentally who by most known similar contemporary cultures hunt sustainably. And Inuit for eg still have megafauna like polar bear and musk ox. So how likely is Overkill? Its not hunters that wipe out animal populations – every wilderness with apex predators for eg is stewarded by a hunting culture.
His numbers and comeback should receive national
recognition. We meet people who have reached rock band. If
this occurs, clean up your quill or mouse and run for the hills!
Night Ministry in the creation would be a Christian Ministry.
I would loke to think future generations will be grateful for saving biodiversity and the environment- at least future generations of animals. But it occurs to me that they won’t know what they’ve lost. Each generation knows little about what used to be. Still what we are doing is not worthy of our better nature.
Horses, a big animal, survived in Asia where they were domesticated.
Horses went in extinct in North America where they weren’t.
Humans had the power to extinguish all horse lines, but didn’t.
Because we found a use for them. (other, than as prey).
