1.5 to 2 million years ago there was Homo- habilis. The earliest form of man. He was the first 'great ape'
500,000 years ago lived Homo Erectus (he walked on 2 legs)
Then came the Neanderthal (about 100,000-30,000 years ago). They were very primitive and animalistic, but they lived in groups, wore clothing, used fire and made basic hunting tools
Next was cro-magnum (40,000-10,000 years ago) There cranial features were elongated to allow for a larger brain, more evolved tools and grinding rocks and the developers of religion.
So, really, we are all, well, homo. (Actually, the root "homo" means "man" and the root "sapien" means "being." So, human being.)
And now, modern man living today is called Homo Sapiens.
Where homosapiens originated from has still yet to be discovered, that is if they are in fact either descended from apes, procured from dirt by some form of a God, or if they were an alien race that crash landed here several millenia ago and completely lost all of their previous history.
Homosapiens are an interesting form of creature due to their excessive liking for percieving themselves as of any higher importance to some sort of destiny they would like to fancy themselves a part of. They generally like to worship multiple forms of Gods since they all can't seem to agree on a single one to celebrate. The Gods they worship seem to neglect them and leave them to feel as if they are helping each other by praying to their all powerful illusions.
Homosapiens also seem to enjoy warfare and crime. Rather than agreeing to quiet down and be at peace with their so called "individual races", they would rather blast their entrails all over their poorly made walls with an array of creative weapons that seem to be generally used more for destroying each other than helping each other. They also like to always have a much bigger stick than anyone else, which is why they created several thousands of intensely high grade explosives which could kill all life on the planet hundreds of times, and earn them all a one way ticket to hell.
Along with liking to have a bigger stick than everyone else, they are also obsessed with their sticks in general. They like to over use their methods of reproduction due to their obsessive impulses to feel generally loved. More or less, En Masse, all homosapiens want nothing more than to be better than everyone else for no reason whatsoever, even if it means only they will benefit, and they only want to feel potential of being an entire human being without having any of their encouragement lost.
The best thing that can be said about homosapiens is that they are where God went wrong.
Foreign Creatures rather nice companion: Oh yes you will have to be careful around any Homosapien , they are generally destructive, greedy and full of their shallow and worthless pride of actually figuring out how to cook their own meals after ten million years of evolution, the ungrateful brutes. Hey, pizza! From New York too, you're too kind!
