Evolution and Global Warming are facts, not theories!
Science and Reason, use them to guide your life.
Sioux Falls Scientists endorse The Archeology Series by Jack McDevitt for showing what the far future might bring. 9,600 years in the future almost all records of the past are gone. Only a few artifacts remain of the many civilizations that have risen and fallen in that time. We see all this through the eyes of a female heroine who's kept busy saving her Tomb Raider boss. What we see as permanence today has no lasting substance,
And 9,600 years?
The Archeology Series
The Archeology Series (9,600 years in the future) by Jack McDevitt
What's really changed in 9,600 years? Not humanity. What do we know about life 9,600 years ago? Just about as much as these people of the future know about our times. Almost everything is lost after 9,600 years. Many civilizations have come and gone. We tend to think of our civilization, our culture, as having permanence. It won't. The Africans, the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Arabs, the Chinese, the Indians (India), the Indians (of both North and South America), all these cultures had their day and now have disappeared, or have changed beyond recognition. Western civilization, and America, will follow the same path, it's only a matter of time. All we can hope to do is make the best of the conditions we live in during our lifespan.
And 9,600 years is nothing in the cosmic scheme of things. That's less than 0.002% of the time since animals first walked the earth, less than 0.0002% of the age of the earth, and about 0.00008% of the age of the Milky Way. And we know very little about human civilizations more than 3,000 years old. Time buries most of human history before that.
Leading Character: Chase Kolpath - Starship Pilot and Executive Assistant to Alex Benedict - Tome Raider. Saving his butt keeps her pretty busy. All these stories are mostly told from her first person point of view.
