'Man' works like any other countable noun:

One bicycle, two bicycles.

Hi. Thank you. I think the word "man" can refer to something to the "humankind." I tink we can use either word in limited contexts in place of each other.

Nonetheless, their numbers remain different:

Men have lived on Earth for more than a million years.
Man has lived on Earth for more than a million years.
.
are u sure to use "a" before million years? Should it be million years not a million years?
'A' is necessary there.
