Was There An Advanced Civilization Before Humans?



This is a fascinating video about the history of life on this planet and the possibility that there were advanced civilizations before us. Given the massive timescale of life on Earth, it's very possible. Even if there weren't species as advanced as us, we do know for a fact that there were species much like us that existed before us.

Long before homo sapiens appeared there was homo erectus, who walked the Earth for millions of years, much longer than our own species. They created tools, had communities, possibly created art, and lived their lives much how our own species lived their lives up until the modern age.

We took some 40,000 years to advance to the point we are at today. By comparison, homo erectus was around for much much longer. With all that time, could they have advanced far beyond our current state? It's doubtful, given that as far as we know their brains were not as large as our own. What we do know for certain is that we aren't the first intelligent species to call this planet home.

Re: Was there an advanced civilization before humans?…

You're probably right but we can't know for certain since almost all evidence of advance civilization that we know of would perish quickly on geologic timescales.

Jesus that's a boring presentation. And advertisers waste money paying for it.

I'm bored. I started falling asleep on him. Why did name drop Harry Potter?

Highly unlikely, but not impossible. Same as alien visitors and magic gods.
