We Are Fire Creatures | Origins: The Journey of Humankind

, , 39 Comments


fire no single tool in the human Arsenal explains our existence more than fire from an animal like any other to the dominant species on earth because we figured out how to steal from the heavens and harness the power of the Sun was a piece of magic so exceptional so inexplicable we told our children was a gift from the gods and turned it into a myth to be handed down for thousands of these years heat nourishment transportation communication annihilation fire made us warriors and builders and explorers with each advance we paid with our blood but still we kept going and today we break through the bonds of Earth escape archeage the only thing we see when we look back is the light of our greatest conquest like a flame that cannot be extinguished drive within us to create expand and dominate not just this world but the next the very spark of humanity starts here with fire this is origins [Music]

    From an animal to the dominant species. Yep guys we came very far, we're so highly developed now, no reason to be upset. Just make sure you keep doing that 9 to 5, feed the machine. But don't forget to be proud of our nonexistent progress. It's all good because we came a long way, so they say.
    NatGeo brings the jewbox brainwashing to yt. Great job. You guys deserve an extra shot in the arm this year directly from the fed reserve. 🙂

    This dudes voice reminds me a bit too much of Alex Jones to take him seriously, particularly on a channel which has been forever above reproach…

    The fire was discovered and handled by the caveman, they produced great bonfires in the caverns, reason, the campfire gave warmth to the bodies in cold weather and at the same time gave them light to look into the darkness, the fire us Continue to help, cook my food and the gigantic fireball (sun) keeps me alive in conjunction with mother nature, we are energy. We are light. Ramon Sandoval.

    El fuego fue descubierto y manejado por el hombre de las cavernas, producian grandes fogatas en la cavernas, la razon, la fogata le daba calor a los cuerpos en tiempo de frio y a la vez les daba luz para mirar en la oscuridad, la lumbre nos sigue ayudando, cocina mis alimentos y la gigantesca bola de fuego (sol) me mantiene con vida en conbinacion con la madre naturaleza, somos energia. Somos luz. Ramon Sandoval.

    Don't feel it. Too hyped; this documentary seems more like the romanticizing of humans rather than something that's factual and interesting. Trailers seem to target teenagers. And what are they doing (1:00) cooking chicken legs on rocks? This scene is closer to a 'survival expert' on YouTube than it is our history. People of the past would cook their meats- covering it with leaves and burying it in the ground with hot coals; They would heat up stones- put it in the dead animal's body and then sear/close the part that was cut open with fire torches. And many more things. Depicting such a shallow and repetitive image shows the simplifying and romanticizing of the past, leaving behind many practices that were closer to what they actually did.

    THIS… guy's voice is terrible. Sounds like he should be refereeing a beerpong tournament at a frat house.

    whether or not you like the loud hollywood style it merely skims over partial history with much ignored (1st two episodes) for example the 10,000 year old oregon sites with no mention of the yukon's blue fish cave sites (20,000 years old) etc. It's a high octane western biased incomplete thrill ride full of incorrect implications. A more thoughtful indepth approach would make it a 10 out of 10.

    Anything that does not exalt Jesus as Lord and Savior , atheism , evolution or whatever it calls itself is a anti Christ religion, your having fun today , but one day soon every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, those in heaven, on earth and beneath the earth to the glory of the Father. And then comes judgement and everyone who has not asked Jesus into their hearts for the forgiveness of their sins that He died for will go where it will be eternally uncomfortable so rejoice and laugh and have all the fun you want do not leave a stone unturned fill yourself with every evil thing that satan has to offer you , because this is all your reward is here on earth, then you will come to the judgement full of dread and terror at what you know is awaiting you, God does not force anyone to believe in Him, but everyone knows He exists and He will have the last say and you will be silent.

    Such a good show, honestly people that are so hyper-critical of this show need to just smoke a blunt and let the show blow their mind.

    O Fogo que tanta admiração traz…as vezes pergunto a admiração por ele …que até os incendiários tem fascínio em deitar fogo ás florestas…e ficar a ver?! Nero também mandou deitar fogo a Roma!! As guerras são fogo ..A invenção do fogo foi grande…Já repararam que o fogo ultrapassa uma estrada e não se extingue?? À lareira junta pessoas e eu já pus as mãos no fogo e queimei-me!! O fogo há o que arde sem se ver e outro ve-se …Nos somos feitos de fogo, ar, terra, água …
