History is fascinating and it is all real.
Huge momentous things happened in the lives of human beings since it started some 2 millions years back. Around 8,000 to 10,000 years back civilizations started taking birth. Around 4,000-5,000 back the first civilizations were at their peak setting foundations for the modern human beings. A lifespan of a single human being is a minuscule part of his-story.
Civilization brought organised living and societies were formed. Societies had rules and that made life better for all. Life was not just about the survival of the fittest. Humans no longer had to live not knowing what will happen tomorrow. There was stability and human life was getting better.
People had different roles in the society. Strong will offer protection, intellectuals will manage administration, others will offer various services based on their skills. Different roles lead to different status setting bricks for divisions in the society. And then came the religion.
The religion of the mesopotamian and the religion of the Indus Valley, Hindu, were some of the early ones. The mesopotamian religion formed base to Judaism which further gave birth to Christianity and Islam. Hindu formed base to Bhudhism, Jainism, Sikh. Over the peroid of time, more religions formed.
Discoveries and inventions started changing lives of people drastically. Human population was growing which brought both prosperity and distruction. But with time, prosperity was growing better than distructions.
Just 200 years back, the world population was 1 billion. During the last 200 years (about 3% of the time since civilizations were formed) the population increased 600% to 7 billion.World started changing very fast.
