McKenna’s theory isn’t one that has gained a lot of support among the scientific community, but one could argue it’s just as plausible as many of the other evolutionary theories, especially when considering superior higher level of consciousness and language development. McKenna theorizes intelligence might have made its way to our planet via spore-bearing intelligent life that traveled to Earth in cosmic radiation, much like what is described in the Crick Theory of Panspermia. As some Homo Sapiens left the forests for the plains and began moving throughout Africa after the last ice age, 18,000 years ago, according to McKenna, the species switched to a more omnivorous diet. This switch, led to following herds of animals for food, and subsequently, finding magic mushrooms in poop and adding them to the diet.

Researchers studying the teeth of the heavy-browed hominids have discovered that while Neanderthals in Belgium were chomping on woolly rhinoceros, those further south were surviving on plants and may even have used naturally occurring painkillers to ease toothache. The findings, the researchers say, are yet another blow to the popular misconception of Neanderthals as brutish simpletons. “Neanderthals, not surprisingly, are doing different things, exploiting different things, in different places,” said Keith Dobney, a bioarchaeologist and co-author of the research from the University of Liverpool.
