    I suppose in some way or another that will benefit progressives... They'll either be more happy or will have someone to blame.....

    They hunted horses for many years without horses going extinct. All things remaining equal, they could have continued. But all things didn't remain equal. Something changed...the environment. Which accounts for both the drought and disease (animals weakened by drought are more susceptible to disease)

    My post in #311 stated that the horse developed in North America for 6 million plus years and at some point crossed to Asia. That is why expect Native Americans to domesticate them so much quicker than anywhere else.
    6 million years ago was before there were any native americans. You can't expect them to domesticate animals that were there if *they* weren't there yet.

    Domestication and agriculture lead to specialization from the ability to have food stores. This leads to more people being able to have more children and more children to fall into specialization from art to war advances. Your interpretation is almost opposite of how it works.
    Huh? You just said the same thing as I did:
    The rise of agriculture led directly to the rise of govts (and armies)

    2. And there were larger populations and competition for resources before agriculture. That's why some people migrated away from the Fertile Crescent.

    3. And then there was a changing climate. Ever notice that the Fertile Crescent ain't so fertile anymore?
    3. Evidence suggests that the Fertile Crescent was abused. It is a delicate soil that was not cared for properly and had nothing to do with Climate Change.

    2. some larger but not substantially so like we see after domestication and husbandry...

    1. That is what I was indicating...

    Huh? You just said the same thing as I did:
    More recent evidence of hunter gatherer sites in Southern Chili indicate that immigration occurred two ice ages ago around 60,000 years ago and that is plenty of time to domesticate a horse.

    ... and as they notice herds diminishing they could/should have wondered why and planned for the future. Not a new concept.

    I haven't heard that one before but it sounds like you're saying agriculture is the cause for the loss of fertility

    2. some larger but not substantially so like we see after domestication and husbandry...
    Well yeah, of course. I'm not disputing that agriculture and domestication leads to larger increases in population and the size and diversity of an economy.

    1. That is what I was indicating...
    do you have any links for that? I would be interested in reading about it. AFAIK, the changes in the region were caused by climate and possibly aggravated by agricultural practices which used up the fertility. I have never heard of a theory that left climate changes out of it.

    PS - I also wonder if part of the reason for so little domestication of animals in the New World might be due to a shortage of domesticable animals on the continent.

    Are you referring to people who came across the pacific from Asia?

    It would be an incredibly new concept for hunter-gatherers.

    That's because most White children who come from money are enrolled in private schools to be segregated from students 'of color' for all the obvious reasons.........

    Nobody cares about Idaho.

    The racial mix of schools or other populations isn't important as long as there truly is a melting pot. Of course, there isn't a melting pot and thats a problem. These days, immigrants (illegal and otherwise) form balkanized neighborhoods with no seeming interest in assimilation. In so cal, you probably find a hispanics neighborhood with spanish language billboards, advertising, stores etc.. If you don't bother to learn they language you're not going to be successful.

    My gardner is an immigrant with a thriving business. He speaks english all enough to communicate with his customers. His son, a second generation immigrant is going to UCSD. My pool guy, on the other hand, can't speak english, has a small customer base and his business seems to struggle.

    If you don't assimilate you'll create generations of poor, fringe people who will always be at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder.

    I'd like to see where you got that steaming pile from... back in WWII the Chinese and Russians were not at war with each other. Both the Germans and Russians were quite happy to starve to death millions of civilians and POWs, I doubt the Chinese plan has a snowball's chance....

    But nice try....
