!If you dig deep enough, and go far enough back, almost everyone is related to everyone else, and are descended from many of, if not the same ancestors. Most people of European descent had virtually the same ancestors as recently as twenty-five hundred years ago, even 1,000 years ago. In simplest terms, everyone alive in ninth century Europe whose descendants survived are likely the ancestors of every living European today, including Charlemagne. Similarly in Asia with Genghis Khan. The more people travel, and procreate, the more related they become.
Nowadays, our lives are so consumed by technology, TV shows, and what we’re going to have for dinner (pizza, obvs) that we often forget that there was a world before we were born. Although it makes us pretty upset that the world didn’t start as soon as we entered it (it should have), it is easy to forget that humans have been on this planet for around six million years. Sure, some of our ancestors liked rocks a little too much, and stumbled around on all fours, and some of them didn’t even know what fire was, but we’re still related – and just as we have to sometimes pinch ourselves that we’re related to our brother or sister (eugh), we were also related to those guys.However, it is important to understand what has happened in this world, and how much the Earth, the animals and the humans on it have changed so much in that time.
