Throughout human history, great men—and women—have searched to answer one question: how did we get here? The first known example was found on a cave in Australia by archaeologists in the 1920s. Dating from around 600,000BC, the drawing they found depicted the world as a giant bird’s nest. According to the artist, night came whenever the mother bird returned to the nest, blocking out the light. The mother bird also explained rain, hail, and anything else falling from the sky. From the number of animal pelts, bone tools, and other artifacts, the artist was also believed to be the first televangelist.
Later came all the great thinkers and scientists you’ve heard of: Socrates, Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, Luther, da Vinci, Galileo, Copernicus, Newton, and right on through Einstein. As brilliant as these men were, not one of them could definitively prove where humanity came from. At best they could come up with a theory, and if they were really lucky, a church named after them. This has led to countless deaths as Jews fight Muslims, Muslims fight Christians, and Christians fight each other. That doesn’t even include all those little tribes in Africa and South America depicted on National Geographic covers.
