The answer may well be in their old legends.

Yeah3


It is also found 1000's of years earlier in Egypt!

Good find.

Have you looked at the diversity of different strains in corn?

Corn is amazing.

There's blue corn, black corn, white corn, blood red corn, and many many more.

That yellow crap you get from the supermarket isn't even remotely the best tasting corn.

Yeah3

Once we were given the plant, then we would be able to diversify it into different strains.

What gets me is the genetic modification of the origin plant. It takes 100's of generations and 100's of years to modify a plant into something different and we have not been able to do it even now but the ancients could?

I agree. However fresh corn is my food addiction. My work around is cook it in the oven on the ear and cut the kernels off for serving otherwise I would lose my marbles at the dinner table. Second nails on the chalkboard food consumption sound is milk slurping cereal crunching combo.

Scream1 me too.

That deep lump of rage welling up inside you at the sound of someone’s obnoxious gum-chewing or lip-smacking? It has a name, and for some people, it may be of clinical severity. It is called Misophonia.

These are often related to eating (like lip smacking or chewing) or related to repetitive sounds like breathing or pen-clicking. These sounds don’t just annoy, they can cause extreme distress.

One year I planted two varieties of corn but wanted to save seed that would grow true to the variety. The pains of isolating the pollen and the emerging ears was crazy! But I'm glad I did it because at least I learned something from the experience.

The following video shows how easy it is to save corn seeds for the next year's crop. He says in the beginning of the video that he planted two varieties but he staggered the planting time by two weeks. That would limit the danger of cross pollination.

5 minute video Skip to 2:28 in the video to bypass his narrative of why he saves seed.

Well, it's likely that they didn't, which takes us to two doors.

2. Aliens
Okay, so I made a twatter account.

Anon and no proof of either of those as well. (I would argue the latter more than the former)

I would like to see an example of anything that god put on this planet fully formed and unchanged. (besides base chemicals)

There are 195,000 different plant choices for the ancients to choose from and 'modify'. There is no chance in hell that they 'chose' the right plant, modified it over 1000's of years and generations by selective breeding. Hunter/gathers did not have the option.
