For a while now I have been wondering what would happen to human beings if we were stripped of all technology and the world returned to the way it was 2000 years ago. Here’s the scenario we would exist under. The population would be decreased to lets say 100 million people, thier are no books, or any other human inventions we take for granted nowadays.
We are in North America, there is an equal amount of people from all races here and although thier are no inventions, we (man) have retained all of the knowledge we have aquired up until 2006 it just isnt written down which means a lot of knowledge would be lost. We would know how to set up a democratic goverment, have the knowledge to smelt metal, we would know how to build houses from grasses (Also from wood if we could cut it), we would know that mosquitoes cause many ailments and would have enough sense not to build our homes near river, lakes or streams.
Now here are some of the problems I see, America 2000 years ago was full of dangerous critters such grizzlies and black bears, wolves and panthers as well as crocodiles and alligators if your living down the south. We would have all of these things to contend with, plus no weapons or shelter to protect ourselves from the elements. So now you have the scenario that we would be living under. What do you think are the first and most important things we would have to do to survive and how long would it take for man to get back to anything approaching the modern world we live in today.
By the way we are all transported to this imaginary world with nothing but a T-Shirt and shorts on no shoes and it is mid –September.
