      Didn’t early man discover that rubbing sticks made heat, which made fire. Does that count as discovering Energy? Necessity is the mother of invention and all….

      I thought we don’t know that since it already there and I agree with Gill that early man used it to create heat to keep warm or cook … So maybe someday you or I will discover a new energy form or source 🙂 Please make sure you share the success with me and remember me answering this question 😀
