In evolution how long have modern humans been around.
Seems strange that if modern humans were around for longer then 10,000 years then why is our technology just starting to pick up ……Did it take the summerians 4,000 years to perfect writing?
Remember those who win wars write history.But for the Rosetta Stone we would be totally lost.Remember that in the Dark Ages brain surgery was an everyday event. All the books were destroyed so we don’t know what happened (that is why its called the dark ages).

how much longer will books be around.
i mean as we know them and use them, or will they go the way of the 8-track tape player?
I think we will always have books, but I would bet someone will figure out another way to make them in a very different form. I also think that high school textbooks are doomed, since they are way too heavy and can be offered in CD-ROM form already. The classes I teach are going to be giving everyone the CD of the textbook and just keep the regular books in the classroom next year, so that students don’t have as much weight in their backpacks.
Christendom has endured for 2000 years how long has atheism been around.
No denying that Catholic and the Popes in the history book has been around all that time, they claim the apostle Saitn Peter as first from year 64. The world I live in knows that it has had the bible in it from 1611 after Christ and the English colonies began 1620 after Christ and the bible is an excepted translation after it was in circulation 303 years at WW1 [ WW1 was 1260 days, or 42 months [ 42 months times 30 days is 1260 days, after 1260 years and 1260 years from Daniel at end of Judah kings until the time of the end ]; Rev.11:3 [ 1260 and 42 months, Rev.12:6, 14 [ 1260 or 3 1/ 2 years WW1 ]; Rev.13:5 [ 42 months ]; now at 2008 the bible has been in circulation 397 years with many translations.The bible has quite a history in the 6074 years after Eden, and the 3561 years after Exodus at 2008 after Christ,
How long have children’s books been around.
How long would you say they’ve been around?
For a really long time. Like, even before the 1800’s. In fact, I’d guess books for children were probably around before books for adults, at least entertainment-wise. Stories for children usually taught morals and were often used to get them to bed, scare them into obeying, etc.
How long has tobacco smoking been around.
Doing a research report and wikipedia seems to be misleading me on tobacco history because i know it has been around longer than the use by indians in the americas
I found this for you :Prehistory: Although small amounts of nicotine may be found in some Old World plants, including belladonna and Nicotiana africana, and nicotine metabolites have been found in human remains and pipes in the Near East and Africa, there is no indication of habitual tobacco use in the Ancient world, on any continent save the Americas.The sacred origin of tobacco and the first pipe (Schoolcraft)c. 6000 BCE: Experts believe the tobacco plant, as we know it today, begins growing in the Americas.c.1 BCE: Experts believe American inhabitants have begun finding ways to use tobacco, including smoking (in a number of variations), chewing and in probably hallucinogenic enemas (by the Peruvian Aguaruna aboriginals).c. 1 CE: Tobacco was “nearly everywhere” in the Americas. (American Heritage Book of Indians, p.41).http://www.tobacco.org/History/Tobacco_H…There’s lots of info, and it should be able to help you with your report.
How long have these fairytales been around.
Not the MOVIES, but about how long have the story itself been around?:)Cinderella?Beauty & The Beast?Aladdin?Sleeping Beauty?Snow White?Tarzan?And any other Disney classic cartoons you can think of?:)
well if you’re talking about the oral or literacy form, most of them were conceived well into the 1700s. Specifically Cinderella originated in classical antiquity .The Greek historian Strabo (Geographica Book 17, 1.33) recorded in the 1st century BC the tale of the Greco-Egyptian girl Rhodopis, “rosy-cheeked”, who lived in the Greek colony of Naucratis in Ancient Egypt. They tell the fabulous story that, when she was bathing, an eagle snatched one of her sandals from her maid and carried it to Memphis. While the king was administering justice in the open air, the eagle, when it arrived above his head, flung the sandal into his lap. The king, having been stirred both by the beautiful shape of the sandal and by the strangeness of the occurrence, sent men in all directions into the country in quest of the woman who wore the sandal.
How long have Primus stoves been around.
I’m writing a book based in 1917, would they have been around then?Here’s hoping…(A very random thing, I know.)
Franz Wilhelm Linqvist invented, and received the patent for, the kerosene burner in the late 1880’s. They were very well received, apparently, so much so that “Primus”, the company, was formed around them. They started small but mass production began around 1910 when they were first shipped abroad.Both World War I and World War II carried some model of Primus stove.Matter of fact, my own first stove was a Primus. It was the last one in stock of the last model made before the company became known (I forget why) as “Optimus”.From what I glean (see Source#1 below), around 1892 was when the very first Primus (though perhaps not yet named such) was manufactured. It may be debatable as to whether Linqvist actually developed the Primus or bought the design.At any rate, it has been around for a lotta years!To quote one website (see Source #2):”With Amundsen using a ‘Primus’ to reach the South Pole and Hillary taking ‘Primus’ stoves to climb Mount Everest the word became used by many people to describe any pressure camping stove.”So yes, I suppose the Primus was around in 1917!Best of Luck on your book!
How long has Cocaine been around.
I’m writing a book about a vampire and in her early days of being a vampire, at age sixteen, she is a coke dealer and I would like to date the time as far back as I can, meaning I must know when Cocaine started being made and sold. Also, how much would it cost back then? Please and thank you!
Cocaine was an ingredient in Coca-Cola (where coke got it’s name) and also used as a over the counter pain medicine in the mid-late 1800s. I think it was first put into powdered form in the 1850sHowever, South Americans had been chewing it in leaf form for thousands of years.It was definitely used for recreation by the late 1800s. It was also used as a weight loss drug because one of the side effects is a suppressed appetite.Soldiers even used it as a type of energy pill during WWII… which frankly is insane. More likely they just enjoyed the high, and used it as an escape.As for the price… I don’t know for certain. But it could not have been much, because coca-cola sold for 5 cents a glass back then and cocaine was one of the main ingredients.Please keep in mind that cocaine was perfectly legal all the way up to 1970. When a product (especially one grown en mass in a 3rd world country) is legal and easy to come by, then the price is not going to be very high.
