Calvinists have an easy answer: that’s not unfair for God to condemn all bipedal primates having ever lived to eternally suffer because since He is God, everything He does is good by definition.

Things most people don’t know:
As close as we can figure, about half the population of humans who have ever lived, lived before 1BC.
Most people assume that since there’s so many more people now than there used to be that most people have lived in the recent past, with some even claiming 3/4 of the population that has ever lived is alive now!
They fail to appreciate just how long our history is. Also note this model starts way younger than anatomically modern humans, who are thought to go back 4-5 times further!
