Washington Crossing the Delaware

Washington Crossing the Delaware by Larry Rivers (1953)

There are the Pliocene and Pleistocene. Now we’re in the Cenozoic epoch which started 66 million years ago. It’s almost inconceivable that the roots of civilization as it’s known began only 5000 thousand years back, in Sumerian times--a grain of sand when you consider the Big Bang at 13.2 billion years. Of course, there was a lot to accomplish after the first Boson came into existence. It’s a long road from elementary sub atomic particles to the 46 chromosomes that humans possess in each of their cells. Another interesting figure. Australopithecus afarensis, the species to which Lucy, the famous fossil, belonged, roamed the earth 3.2 million years ago. It’s not even 300 years since Washington crossed the Delaware in 1776.
