Humans came into their present state 200,000 to 50,000 years ago.

 Per Wikipedia
"Humans (known taxonomically as Homo sapiens, Latin for "wise man" or "knowing man" are the only living species in the Homo genus. Anatomically modern humans originated in Africa about 200,000 years ago, reaching full behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago."
I would have thought it was more like a million years ago and who really knows how all this came about, me personally I can reconcile God with Evolution.
So if Wikipedia is correct and we have only been around 200,000 to 50,000 years then we as humans have to help each other out with our new found humanity as we deal with all our ancient animal instincts in this odd mix of who we are part  animal and part divine.
