comment Confusion about the oldest humans outside Africa and the human migration
" it is said that the earliest humans were attested around 135,000 years ago. Or Chu Ku Tien where, apparently, is the oldest sign of using the fire and dates ~600,000 years ago, and also skulls and mandibules from ~400,000~300,000 years ago". references please. And more clarity. For now I'm voting to close because it's not clear what you are asking.

comment Why did family size decrease when health care improved?
This would be science or social science, not history. Unless you are specifically referring to a certain period and geography where this happened.

@TylerDurden I understand the dating bit- and you're right that the Vedas would be written later than the earliest Hebrew sections of the Bible. However, as I said earlier, would you really call them naming books? I'd say they were sources. But do expand your comment to an answer.

I realize the Bible could be a source. But I wouldn't call it a naming book. If we do accept the Bible as a naming book then there certainly are much older books that qualify, e.g. a whole lot of books from the Indian mythology and the Vedic pantheon.

1. This is not a history question. 2. I'm not sure how you worked out the percentages.

comment Did the Zapatistas actually kill anyone?
@user45891 however, by their own records combat did take place. See the quote above. I find it hard to believe that even retaliatory/defensive fire has killed only 1 (or 3) people over 20 years of armed conflict. I don't say it's untrue- i'm just asking if there are records to explain this number, or any other (higher)number.

comment Why has racism decreased in America since its beginning?
Slavery by itself is an opportunistic exploitation of labor. Racism is a parallel phenomena but it does not require slavery as a prerequisite. If you mean racial discrimination in opportunities, that is exploitation. Only when you talk of mindsets, the idea of the "other" holds. The "other" is a construct used in colonial/subaltern studies to explain empire, hegemony, center-periphery relations. Anybody who is not like you is the "other".

Perhaps you should edit your question to clarify that you mean regulations rather than mindsets.

I think we need greater clarity- Are you talking of job opportunities, govt. regulations or simply mindsets?

comment Why has racism decreased in America since its beginning?
@Kyth'Py1k because the "unknown other" is a reason for fear and mistrust. When you see and know the "other" you begin to see the similarities with your self. Why are cities more liberal in attitudes than remote areas?

Better communication, greater movement and intermingling, and being better informed about the world at large reduces xenophobia. Also as citizens of a knowledge era, people are informed by education that is more multi-cultural, as well as more evolved thought processes and philosophies than earlier. The greater number of "moderate" voices tend to fight for a more equitable order. That does not drown racist voices, but it certainly counter-balances some of the ugliness.
