Home did people figure out how to make fire?

Recommended Posts

I've read the Wikipedia stages thing. I understand that people discovered fire accidentally and most likely mastered how to keep it going before making it. What I don't get is how did they make fire and fire making tools. Going from using fire to making fire from is a huge leap especially considering the tools for making fire need specific designs to work properly. There must have been years of failed attempts at making fire before they got it right. Seems like it would have been deemed impossible. Making fire with sparks from flint maybe. Learning to rub sticks together to make fire is insane. Even now with all info at our finger tips it takes people a long time to learn to make fire from sticks. Most people give up and they know it's possible.
