'More proof that ancient Britons had cannibalistic habits'

Many ancient human remains, aged at about 15,000 years old, have been unearthed over the years from Gough’s Cave. These bones have been studied and research has been published, including a paper in 2011 in which Museum scientists revealed that the earliest known examples of human skull-cups were made in the UK. Today, new research shows more cannibalistic evidence, including human tooth marks on many of the human bones. The research points to the existence of a sophisticated culture of butchering and carving of human remains, the team says. ‘We’ve identified a far greater degree of human modification than recorded in earlier research,’ said Dr Silvia Bello, from the Natural History Museum’s Department of Earth Sciences, and lead researcher. ‘We’ve found undoubting evidence for defleshing, disarticulation, human chewing, crushing of spongy bone, and the cracking of bones to extract marrow.’ - See more at: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/our-science/science-news/2015/april/more-proof...

I think the discovery at Gough's cave of fully matured small wolf skeletons was first Known domestication of 'dogs'.

I was taught by a sunday school/institute of religion teacher that god's parents were at one time human, who became gods, and the same with their parents, and theirs & etc.  He never said where the first gods came from.

They're still stashing and rotating all that emergency stuff.

Hey, check out the blog I just wrote real fast, and posted like an idiot.  Instead of waiting, storing it, and proof reading it tomorrow.  Hell, what's the point of being and idiot, if you don't get to air it out now and then?

  Getting ready for the big, apo-calypso they were!

 Well, it was at the height of the cold war after all.  A lot of Americans were digging fallout shelters.  They just put the old Moronic organizational spin on it all, that's all!

Wasn't he the doom-cryer who first got all the Morons into hiding food and digging shelters?
