These painters left something for folks like us to realise that somewhere in the past they did have the capacity to use their imagination.

Today we have great imaginations that are often projected as being "Marvellous" and unfortunately we begin to virtually "worship" folks who are so determined to eliminate God from society by puting finite man as the be all and end all of science.

Since our good scientific friend supposedly used his critical analysis and comparisons to deduce the ages of these drawings, I will throw my hat into the ring of suggestive age. I say they are NO more than about 4,235 years old. My guess has just as much credence as theirs and is probably closer to the actual age. Even then I am probably over estimating it

This does NOT take away from the fact that most of the information is great. Just the age is all I am questioning. Now watch the criticisms pile up.

Seems we haven't evolved to much, same basic skills. Humbling.
