Then, about 80,000 years ago, says Blombos archaeologist Henshilwood,
modern humans entered a "dynamic period" of innovation. The evidence
comes from such South African cave sites as Blombos, Klasies River,
Diepkloof and Sibudu. In addition to the ocher carving, the Blombos
Cave yielded perforated ornamental shell beads—among the world's first
known jewelry. Pieces of inscribed ostrich eggshell turned up at
Diepkloof. Hafted points at Sibudu and elsewhere hint that the moderns
of southern Africa used throwing spears and arrows. Fine-grained stone
needed for careful workmanship had been transported from up to 18
miles away, which suggests they had some sort of trade. Bones at
several South African sites showed that humans were killing eland,
springbok and even seals. At Klasies River, traces of burned
vegetation suggest that the ancient hunter-gatherers may have figured
out that by clearing land, they could encourage quicker growth of
edible roots and tubers. The sophisticated bone tool and stoneworking
technologies at these sites were all from roughly the same time period—
between 75,000 and 55,000 years ago.

Virtually all of these sites had piles of seashells. Together with the
much older evidence from the cave at Pinnacle Point, the shells
suggest that seafood may have served as a nutritional trigger at a
crucial point in human history, providing the fatty acids that modern
humans needed to fuel their outsize brains: "This is the evolutionary
driving force," says University of Cape Town archaeologist John
Parkington. "It is sucking people into being more cognitively aware,
faster-wired, faster-brained, smarter." Stanford University
paleoanthropologist Richard Klein has long argued that a genetic
mutation at roughly this point in human history provoked a sudden
increase in brainpower, perhaps linked to the onset of speech.

"humans needed to fuel their outsize brains....more cognitively
aware, faster-wired, faster-brained, smarter..sudden increase
in brainpower,....onset of speech" - due to genius "seafood"?

Then how on Earth did and do these humans manage......???

They're humans, they manage despite adversity. They
also benefit from the genetic advantage of many
generations of omnivorous ancestors.

Diet doesn't change genes. A change in our ancestors' eating habits
would not have conferred any genetic advantage. That's Lamarckian
evolution, not Darwinian evolution.

That would be an impressive list if each person on the list could be
documented as a vegetarian. I didn't go thru the entire list but the
few that I sampled were not documented. Clicking on 'info' did not
lead to documentation.

One person on the list is professional wrestler Bill Goldberg. He is
listed as a vegetarian, probably because he is into "animal rights".

http://ifitandhealthy.com/bill-goldberg-diet-and-workout/

--- [ begin quote ] ---

What’s your diet like?

High protein, low-fat. A typical breakfast is 12 egg whites with one
yolk, half a pound of turkey bacon and ...

--- [ end quote ] ---

That is not vegetarian. Yet he is on the list of vegetarians.

That would be an impressive list if each person on the list could be
documented as a vegetarian. I didn't go thru the entire list but the
few that I sampled were not documented. Clicking on 'info' did not

One person on the list is professional wrestler Bill Goldberg. He is
listed as a vegetarian, probably because he is into "animal rights".

Right, the list of outstanding accomplished
non-vegetarians in recorded history in 10 pt type
would probably span the Pacific.

If vegetarianism becomes the norm someday it will come
