Most likely.

Yeah, look how scared the one pictured above is!
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/16/04 - 11:58:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. Fire can be scary. Especially to those who have never seen it before.

Yeah, I'm sure they didn't know what the hell it was.

They probably thought it was some sort of a demon or work of a god. LOL!

Yeah, probably.

No I don't think so. The guy who was sitting in his cave bored and smacking flint against a rock might have got a hell of a surprise, but immediatley he would have realized it gave off light and heat and would have been the genius of the of the tribe. Hell! He would have even been given the biggest rock to be buried beneath when he died. The world's first Super Star!

Fire would have been first discovered when lightning - or some other natural phenomina - started a wild fire.

You bet your bippy the cave man was afraid of it - it could kill him.

Cave men probably first captured fire in the wild, and learned how to keep it going and carry it. There were probably some who were leary of fire during this process.

Eventually, someone figured out how to produce fire. By then, most cave people were probably comfortable with fire.

yah i think he would hav been surprised and maybe scared and stay away from it at first. but then he'd realiaze it was a light and heat source.

Yea, there's always some dumb*ss who is skeptical about something...
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/16/05 - 1:09:17 AM EST (GMT-5)

yeah i agree and probablly when they saw its power to destroy they would have been scared to, but then they would have learnt to respect it and benefit from it.
