There is no point in talking about this any further. Other than the one link you’ve provided no support for your assertions. I could link you ten more things that say that Paleolithic societies were largely peaceful and egalitarian and that early cultures were goddess worshipping but there would be no point.

Edit: Adam Koncz — I have figured out the problem. The statistics you cited in your one link were from no older than 14,000 BCE, and most of them were from significantly later. The Paleolithic period started 2.58 million years ago and is thought to have ended around 10,000 BCE. We’re talking about apples and oranges here.
