And, of course, current people seem to be totally unaware they are about to become extinct.

"Come men of the Middle Ages was are about to embark upon the 100 Years war: Just about sums up all historical discourse.

Yes, if you subscribe to syntactically wrong sentences, and unfinished quotes are historical discourse.

Maybe you are quoting something.... Please rewrite this. What you wrote is incomprehensible. And if it's a quote, please name the source. Thanks.

I can appreciate that you may have been sleep deprived or tired when you wrote the above.

And you are right. The people of Ancient Greece did not live in ancient Greece. That's exactly my point. The people of the Enlightenment did not know they were living in the age of Enlightenment.

We can agree, therefore, that the people who lived in Ancient Greece lived in Ancient Greece, except they did not call their area of lebensraum that. But WE call it that. That's the point, Hobbes.

Please strike the sentence in the above that reads "The people of Ancient Greece did not live in ancient Greece." and substitute in its place "The people of Ancient Geece did not call the area where they lived Ancient Greece."

No.
You are an excellent arguer, Hobbes.

The simplicity; the power; the Laconic brevity of your argument is overwhelming.

I think you are looking in the mirror.
Just telling me to do something I could have done in the first place does not deserve more than a one word answer.

LOL Thank you, George Carlin!

Or Sting, if you like:
Hey mighty brontosaurus
Don't you have a lesson for us
You thought your rule would always last
There were no lessons in your past
You were built three stories high
They say you would not hurt a fly
If we explode the atom bomb
Would they say that we were dumb
We're
Walking in your footsteps
Personally, I object to the scientifically incorrect "brontosaurus".

I think "Hey mighty tyrannosaurus"
Would be far more appropriate since we think ourselves king of evolution.

The era of intelligent humanity is, roughly, to be generous, a couple of million years. The dinosaurs were permitted about a hundred times that existence so, if intellect requires around a few million years to develop, it seems most likely that a dinosaur civilization took off with its fleet of interstellar ships as soon as they had certified that asteroid was on its way to the Gulf of Mexico. So, if we can rid ourselves of the garbage now directing the oblivion project for humanity and the rest of the planet, we might be welcomed into galactic society by the dinosaurs now in control.
