comment Megafauna extinctions
@jwenting I am very interested in your pov, it would be great if you could prepare an alternative answer, because the comments are a bit tight to expose the bulk of one's idea. Cheers :)

comment Megafauna extinctions
@jwenting Why do you say there were "almost certainly no humans in Australia 45K years ago"? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prehistory_of_Australia poses the minimum date at 40K.

comment Why are many African nations poor?
Obviously colonialism operated in different ways in Asia than it did in Africa. Socialism promised also freedom from neo-colonialism. This is not the only factor, but I do not think it can be ignored, as you did.

comment Why are many African nations poor?
-1 Because you did not see the Elephant in the continent. Namely, Western European countries occupied Africa, despite the continent having hosted and hosting rich civilizations (who did have agriculture and farming - Ethiopia anyone?)

comment Why are many African nations poor?
-1 (-2 if I could). How come one mentions recent history of Africa and does not even mention the word "colonialism". The "causes" invoked are mere consequences/answers to classic and neo-colonialism. I am astonished O.O

@Anixx This Wikipedia article contains enough material for an answer. I did not write it as I have not much to add and don't want the question to receive less attention. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…
