The most significant difference between cavemen and modern man would be their level of spirituality. Cavemen had a special relationship with nature, one which had spiritual meanings… much as nature meant to the American Indians. Cavemen expressed themselves with a primitive and natural curiosity about life and having no scientific explanations, they were surely captivated. It was a time of wonder and awe... of thoughts uncorrupted by organized religions or despoiled by scientific explanations.
It goes beyond that however; it goes beyond a reverence for nature. It amounted to actually interacting with nature in a spiritual way. The caveman’s senses were keen to this; he could hear the spirit world and could communicate spiritually on a regular basis. Their harsh circumstances were ideal for this to occur and a phenomenon few modern men can comprehend or would believe. Guidance and blessings were often sought and miracles were undoubtedly more commonplace.
Therefore, we should honor these cavemen instead of holding them in low esteem, as if inferior. They were by no means inferior. People might also have visualized cavemen as being brutish and ugly. Why? Because they’ve always been depicted that way? The young didn’t look any different than the young of today, with an equal proportion of handsome men and pretty women. This must be true... otherwise these pleasing-to-the-eye features wouldn't exist today. We tend to forget... everything we are today we inherited, and why the differences between cavemen and modern man are negligible.
