I'm not saying modern humans have been around for millions of years, only pointing out that modern humans (homo sapiens) aren't the only human species to ever exist on Earth. People seem to think the only humans are/were "us".

Human Characteristics: Humans Change the World
For millions of years all humans, early and modern alike, had to find their own food. They spent a large part of each day gathering plants and hunting or scavenging animals. Then, within just the past 12,000 years, our species, Homo sapiens, made the transition to producing food and changing our surroundings. We have been so successful that we have inadvertently created a turning point in the history of life on Earth.
