This Norwegian government's attitude toward Israel is among the most negative in Europe. The most famous Sumerian epic and the one that has survived in the most nearly complete form is the epic of Gilgamesh. The African and Eurasian megafauna learned to fear and avoid people after hundreds of thousands of years of human hunting, but those extinct humans may have been worthy adversaries and unwary behaviorally modern humans could have been occasional prey.� Whatever behaviorally modern humans did to those virgin continents, there is no doubt that they moved to the top of every food chain that they encountered.� Nothing co uld withstand those people, and the easy meat fueled humanity�s initial global expansion.� That may be when humans became �energy windfall opportunists.� �All animals took energy windfalls when they found them, which fueled all those � golden ages � of the evolutionary past, but humans have quested after them to this very day.� The first instance was probably when that founder group exploded across the planet and got all the easy energy that they could with their new, irresistible methods, and drove all other human competitors to extinction.� It seems that Denisovans quickly succumbed in the warmer climates and the �hobbits� effectively hid in their refugia for tens of thousands of years while behaviorally modern humans passed them by.� But Neanderthals were a different matter.� There are no known Neanderthal sites on the Mediterranean�s African shores, which would have certainly been quite inhabitable.� But contemporary remains of modern humans are found on the southern shores.� The divide is evident where Spain and Morocco meet at the strait of Gibraltar. �I consider it quite likely that inhabitants of the northern and southern shores were mutually hostile, and the Mediterranean formed a frontier.� The reason for not mixing was not because they adapted to different biomes and lifestyles, but they adapted to different biomes due to mutual hostility.� That did not mean constant warring, but they knew enough to avoid each other and conflicts were not worth it.� But the arrival of behaviorally modern humans, however, changed the terms of engagement.� By ab out 45-40 kya, that northward migrating band from the founder group reached Europe. �Although the exact route is in dispute, the genetic evidence supports the idea that the group originated from a migration into the Levant, probably via the east end of the Arabian Peninsula.� Those in vaders are called Cro-Magnons today.� When they reached the Levant, they began migrating along the Mediterranean�s northern and southern shores, and Neanderthals began disappearing.� The process took several thousand years at minimum, and has been called a border war with Neanderthals, while others have called it a genetic assimilation. [564] � The way that humans drove the megafauna to extinction, and then engaged in warfare as they were driving the megafauna extinction, seems to favor a violent end for Neanderthals, and the �blitzkrieg� of humans migrating across the length and breadth of Australia in a few thousand years was not in evidence for the migration/invasion around the Mediterranean�s periphery.� Neanderthals (nor maybe ancient Homo sapiens along the southern shore ), do not seem to have gone quietly or easily and may have been the biggest obstacle to Earth�s conquest by behaviorally modern humans.

When life first appeared, it was single-celled and simple, and such organisms are called prokaryotes today.� Below is a diagram of a typical prokaryotic cell.� (Source: Wikimedia Commons) The diagrams used in this chapter are only intended to provide a glimpse of the incredible complexity of structure and chemistry that takes place at the microscopic level in organisms, and people can be forgiven for doubting that it is all a miraculous accident.� I doubt it, too, as did Einstein .� Prokaryotes do not have organelles such as mitochondria, chloroplasts, and nuclei, but even the simplest cell is a marvel of complexity.� If we could shrink ourselves so that we could stand inside an average bacterium, we would be astounded at its complexity, as molecules move here and there, are brought inside the bacterium�s membrane, used to generate energy and build structures, and waste products are ejected from the organism.� Cellular division would be an amazing sight Hellenistic Civilization and the Jews.
