This is enormously interesting - but what does it tell us? And is the dating accurate? : http://www.foxnews.com/science/2018/01/10/prehistoric-paradise-with-trove-flint-axes-discovered-in-israel.html

Let me look at that link but first I'll say that was about the same time the Neanderthal humans came about. I think late Homo Erectus was the main hominid (or human, depending on who you ask).

Dating techniques are fairly reliable. I didn't catch what method was used, however I'd say it was about that time. What does it tell us? It tells us that a group of people were smart enough to use tools and stayed near a river with a lot of plants. Apparently it was quickly preserved with a flood, else there woulda been more erosion and wear on the chert, or unless the axes were used for soft stuff only.
Was it really Homo Erectus, and not another early human-hominid?
Interesting how important Israel is.

Remember, this would have been FAR pre-Israel - which was not a nation until Moses at Sinai!

Since the earth is only 6000 years old, it must be a evilutionist conspiracy!!

Yes, but the land itself and the middle/near east in general has always been an important place-Adam and Eve, Noah, Babel, Neanderthals mixing with Sapien Sapiens for the first apparent time, neolithic revolution and the first civilizations that had writing as we yet know for sure, Abraham Jacob and Isaac, many many bible prophecies, Jesus, the sacking of Jerusalem in 70 AD, the return of Israel in 1947 (give or take a few years), etc.
