Thanks for that, Ivano. I had no idea there was evidence of human occupation so long ago on Crete. On other islands, yes. But it begs the question:

1) How did they get there? (We know the answer to that, of course, even if some scientists STILL can't accept that our ancestors were that bright.)

2) At the 130KY mark, were they anatomically modern humans or other groups like Denisovans or Neanderthals?

You can’t use reason to convince anyone out of an argument that they didn’t use reason to get into.~Neil deGrasse Tyson
