The spear goes back nearly half a million years.
For the Schöningen spears,
For the Clacton spear:
The spear is old than modern Homo sapiens and may be older
than archaic Homo sapiens. To some degree, therefore, we _did_
evolve to work with spears (and a lot of other tools too; the
bag may well have been far more important).
There is some evidence that arrows may go back 60,000 years,
which is time enough for some evolutionary effect.
I grant you that driving cars is recent (:-) (:-)!
