It's pretty simple why they never had beards drawn in cave paintings (if a little facetious grin2.gif ).......if you're going to get your "picture" taken, you want to at least look somewhat respectable, don't you tongue.gif  tongue.gif  grin2.gif

Don't want to foster any ideas that later generations might have of you grin2.gif  tongue.gif  grin2.gif

A beard on a stick figure would look a little strange now wouldn't it? alien.gif   Seriously, cave paintings are highly stylized works, they don't seem to actually represent individual people.  They usually have more religious connotations, tied to the success of the hunt and what not.  Native American and Australian petroglyphs also have this stick figure form.  

Nothing to see here.

I don't know about anywhere else, But in the southwest of the U.S. very few of the native americans can grow beards. While some can, it is a general genetic fact that certain tribes such as the Navajo do not have facial hair. Since these good folks are decendents of early man, at least here in he U.S. it would stand to reason that they would have the same traits as their forebearers.

Just a thought.

the people that would have been paintinf the cave pictures were VERY hairy. the native amreicans were, of course, decended from the siberian nomads, who dont have much facial hair, like alot of eastern orientals.

And even if they didn't have a real good reason for not drawing facial hair, how can you jump from that to Atlantis? It's a good point, yet it needs more proof for you to just go right into how the Atlantians did it. That's just kind of...looking for evidence that doesn't exist....good point though. More connections are needed for me though.

I thought it was an interesting observation.

I don't think that beards would show up in cave paintings as they are just a step up from stick figures.

I don't see any eyes in the cave drawings either, but supposition leads me to believe that they were there...

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

They don't even have faces, much less beards or eyes, by that evidence you could argue that cavemen were really malnourished, and blind.

Nothing to see here.
