~ 3 past million years: “Homo Species” evolve and develop progressively

~ 80’000 years ago: big meteorite hit the Earth (Africa, Hoba, 60 tons)

~ as from 14’000 B.C.: Neolithic revolution in various areas on Earth: Humans start developing agriculture and farming and start building and living in houses and cities, moving on from previous hunting and cave dwelling; for people who read the Bible, according to Bible’s Genesis, around this period, “Nephilim”/”Giants” were living on Earth and “Sons of God” married young beautiful human women among Adam & Eve’s descendants and had many children together who truly became known as the “Renowned Heroes of Antiquity”
