Is it possible to determine precisely where, how, and when agriculture started? Defend your opinion?

How precise do you want it? Would Babylon be a small enough region? Agriculture, and therefore civilization, started when someone realized that it was less labor-intensive to plant barley than to wander around harvesting patches of wild grain. The barley was used to produce bread and, more important, to brew beer. According to the story, the goddess Ninkasi taught humans to brew. Google "Hymn to Ninkasi" for the recipe. I would not suggest trying to duplicate it though.

It started before writing was invented
