You can hardly walk 10 steps along Buttermilk Creek about 45 miles north of Austin without finding evidence that people lived here thousands of years ago. The ground is littered with flakes of chert, a plentiful stone from which projectile points, blades, cleavers and other tools were fashioned.

Archaeologists who have dug as deep as 14 feet found layer after layer of stone tools, weapons and flakes that accumulated over time, indicating that prehistoric humans began gravitating to this area about 16,000 years ago.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.

Yes, my observations during the close-to-30 years that I've lived in the Austin area have shown that over time a lot of flakes have accumulated here.   10294
Sure I'll comply. Until you're not looking. And then who knows WHAT I might do...?

No. Not really. The dig found that they didn't have Air Conditioning.

I grew up in east Texas in the middle of the east Texas oil field.  As a child, we found arrow heads all the time.  Indians for sure lived there.  At one time, Texas was covered with ocean.

Yes, but this is pre-Clovis: 15,500 years ago.

I"ll bet the people who lived there 16,000 years ago weren't liberals like today :pondering:.
