Who are we?
Humans as part of the Earth
Humanity. Mankind. That's us. But who are we? Where do we come from? In the articles on humanity we'll talk about humans throughout history and prehistory, the things we did and built, what make us human, and humans as part of the earth and its ecosystems.
Even though we're the species we know best, there are still many myths and things we don't know about our past. For example, many theories and hypotheses are plagued by the embedded idea that humanity is the pinnacle of evolution. Therefore, those myths need to be busted and make room for new ideas.
