And may the same be offered to you, my brother."I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love."

The Cave Paintings from Altimara and El Castillo to Chauvet and Lascaux are wonderful examples of modern Man - the Cro-Magnon leaving traces of their imaginations for us to see and pay homage to in recognition of their prodigious talents.
Age - 10,000 BCE to at least over 42,000 BCE. These earliest appear at about the same time as the last evidences of Neanderthal.
At about the same time, BCE 40,000 and possibly older, the Australians also left rock art and evidence of a musical, imaginative, theological life.
Certain remnants in India suggest human culture as far back as 100,000 years, correlating with genetic evidence of humans migrating out of Africa at about the same time.
Modern culture seems to have emerged out of the Indus Valley region at the base of the Himalayas near 10,000 years ago. These peoples migrated in a number of directions, including westward to the shores of the Caspian and Black Seas where they were inundated by the probable breach of an ice dam or moraine left by the retreating glaciers that overlaid the modern Straits of the Bosphorus. The breach allowed the Mediterranean Sea to flow into the Caspian Basin. The event, now fairly well-documented, is the probable origin of the Story of Noah.
