Neanderthal man cleans up real nice.

We started a section called “Those Sophisticated Cave Men” several years ago for the purpose of showing the evidence that our ancestors were in fact not primitive, not virtually animals. We wanted to show that “Neanderthal” and “Cro-Magnon” were primitive only in the eyes of artists influenced by evolutionary theory. The advances in forensic recreations from skulls as well as artifacts of these people have served to prove them more and more to be “us”.

Now mainstream science is finally coming around to what creationists have always been saying about them; they were/are fully human–there were no pre-humans. You’re welcome, science!

Science now agrees that; they had a language, had speech, thay they did bury their dead, were capable of symbolic thought, had larger brains, keener senses, could passテつby todayテつwithout much notice in a suit, and were way stronger than “we” are. (This is because the human genome has been becoming 1% to 2% “less fit” each generation due to the rampant deleterious, mutation in our genome.)

Evolutionists, for their own reasons (inconvenient for evolutionary theory) insisted that “modern man” and “Neanderthal” never met and that even if they had, they never would have intermixed. Now, they’re saying that some of us living today have up to 5% “Neanderthal” genes. Welcome aboard the truth train science, unfortunately all we have available now are aisle seats.

Ancient 3D Aerial Map Manufactured with Modern Technology

Back in 1992 a Pravda story about an ancient 3D aerial high technology map made a big splash all over the internet and to a much lesser degree, the “conventional” press (apologies, but it was in Pravda not the New York Times).

It was claimed that a 5 foot, one ton slab found in Ufa, Russia (map of the creator) was a 120 million year old ancient topographical map, manufactured through an unknown process, and clearly was the product of an advanced civilization.

What made the story so unusual, outside of the facts presented were that the claims were being made by the head of the Physics and Engineering Department at a well known, Russian University.

The proponent of the claims, Aleksandr Nikolayevich Chuvyrov, had a doctorate in both physics and mathematics and had previously published many peer reviewed articles within his specialty. When he gives his opinion on the manufacturing of the stone slab, you will see by reading his Curriculum Vitae below that he is an expert in that field.

We were not concerned with the time frame given because it was produced using the typical materialist dating system. What was clear is/was that this was potentially an ancient piece featuring advanced technology.

After the original article appeared and created a sensation, Chuvyrov participated in an online press conference in June, 2002 in which he answered additional questions. After that, really as far as we could see, not much else happened.

When we were putting together this website in 2003, the interest in the “map” had waned. We felt that really, with his credentials and the claims being made, more news about the artifact should have broken and since it had not, we supposed that perhaps there was nothing to it after all.

We did find an update or at least an interview given by Chuvyrov in 2004, in Italy. he is apparently still on the faculty of the University of Bashkiria in Ufa, Russia. An American company, the History of Cartography Project in Wisconsin was according to Pravda studying the slab reported in 2004 that they had not actually seen the map although they had been contacted by the professor.

Here we provide a translation of his Italian interview in 2004, the professor’s credentials as well as the original story and photos. Make of it what you will.

Oldest Writing in the New World Discovered in Veracruz, Mexico

PROVIDENCE, R.I. テ「竄ャ窶 New research published this week in Science details the discovery of a stone (serpentine) block in Veracruz, Mexico, containing a previously unknown system of writing, thought to be the earliest in the New World.

An international team of archaeologists, including Brown Universityテ「竄ャ邃「s Stephen D. Houston, determined that the slab テ「竄ャ窶 named the テ「竄ャナ鼎ascajal blockテ「竄ャツ テ「竄ャ窶 dates to the early first millennium B.C.E. and has features that indicate it comes from the Olmec civilization of Mesoamerica.

They say the block and its ancient script テ「竄ャナ斗ink the Olmec civilization to literacy, document an unsuspected writing system, and reveal a new complexity to this civilization.テ「竄ャツ

New Worldテ「竄ャ邃「s Oldest Writing

Sixty-two signs incised on a block of serpentine date to the first millennium B.C.E. and are thought to be the earliest writing in the New World. The Cascajal block, an artifact of the Olmec civilization, was found by road builders in a pile of debris.

テ「竄ャナ的tテ「竄ャ邃「s a tantalizing discovery. I think it could be the beginning of a new era of focus on Olmec civilization,テ「竄ャツ said Houston, an expert on ancient writing systems and corresponding author for the Science article.

テ「竄ャナ的tテ「竄ャ邃「s telling us that these records probably exist and that many remain to be found. If we can decode their content, these earliest voices of Mesoamerican civilization will speak to us today.テ「竄ャツ

Road builders first discovered the Cascajal block in a pile of debris heaped to the side of a destroyed area in the community of Lomas de Tacamichapa in the late 1990s. Mexican archaeologists Carmen Rodrテδュguez and Ponciano Ortテδュz, lead authors of the article in Science, were the first to recognize the importance of the find and to register it officially with the Goverment authority, the Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia of Mexico.

Surrounding the piece were ceramic sherds, clay figurine fragments, and broken artifacts of ground stone, which, in addition to テ「竄ャナ妬nternal cluesテ「竄ャツ and テ「竄ャナ途egional archaeology,テ「竄ャツ have helped the team date the block and its text to the San Lorenzo phase, ending about 900 B.C.E.

Thatテ「竄ャ邃「s approximately 400 years before writing was thought to have first appeared in the Western hemisphere. Carved of the mineral serpentine, the block weighs about 26 pounds and measures 36 cm long, 21 cm wude, and 13 cm thick. The incised text consists of 62 signs, some of which are repeated up to four times. Because of its distinct elements, patterns of sequencing, and consistent reading order, the team says the text テ「竄ャナ田onforms to all expectations of writing.テ「竄ャツ

テ「竄ャナ鄭s products of a writing system, the sequences would, by definition, reflect patterns of language, with the probable presence of syntax and language-dependent word order,テ「竄ャツ the article states. Five sides on the block are convex, while the remaining surface containing the text appears concave; hence, the team believes the block has been carved repeatedly and erased テ「竄ャ窶 a discovery Houston calls テ「竄ャナ砥nprecedented.テ「竄ャツ Several paired sequences of signs also lead the researchers to believe the text contains poetic couplets which would be the earliest known examples of this expression in Mesoamerica.

In addition to Houston, the research team includes some of the worldテ「竄ャ邃「s top experts on Olmec civilization, ceramics, and imagery: Ma. del Carmen Rodrテδュguez Martテδュnez and Alfredo Delgado Calderテδウn of the Centro del Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia of Mexico; Ponciano Ortテδュz Ceballos of the Instituto de Antropologテδュa de La Universidad Veracruzana; Michael D. Coe of Yale University; Richard A. Diehl of University of Alabama; and Karl A. Taube of University of California-Riverside.

The Undeniably Immense Lake Tahoe Amphibious Serpent

A Mrs. Mattie Hatcher, who now lives in Georgia but who formerly lived in Hood Valley near Crater Lake recalled seeing a huge monster in that lake while in a rowboat with friends many years ago thusly: It swam deep down in the lake, and it was unbelievably big.

It swam deep down in the lake, and it was unbelievably big.

テ「竄ャナ典hat thing must have been a block long,テ「竄ャツ she said. テ「竄ャナ的 have never been so scared in my life. What we saw that day was a monster. To me, it looked like a dragon. I know why the Indians call that place Lost Lake. They say monsters live in it. I believe them. I know, because I saw one there.テ「竄ャツ

For the record, the average city block in Manhattan is 264 feet by 900 feet, but perhaps Mrs. Hattie didnテ「竄ャ邃「t intend to be that accurate with her description. A San Francisco road crew in 1983 and then the Clark Brothers, initially in 1985 reported seeing a sea serpent in San Francisco Bay that measured more than 100 feet long with a circumference of five feet.

A video analysis by photo expert Dr. Cliff Paiva, of a video subsequently obtained by the Clark brothers years after the initial sighting, indicated unknown animals of approximately 175 feet in length. Several years ago, in the Mariana Trench, at a depth of 1.5 kilometers, Japanese researchers baited a trap only to see an unknown creature with a length of more than 180 feet slowly pass their video camera.

The Hessa Serpent seen feeding on a whaleテ「竄ャ邃「s carcass (and easily moving it around) off the coast of Norway was said to be approximately 100 feet long. All of the foregoing are without a doubt impressively sized テ「竄ャナ杜onsterテ「竄ャ邃「s but all of them fall far short of the amphibious テ「竄ャナ杜onsterテ「竄ャツ serpent that a Mr. I. C. Coggin, a person of some renown and status, claims he witnessed (along with others) near Lake Tahoe in 1865.

Bad Dating?

This page has actually been on the site for some time, but if you haven’t read it, we recommend it as either new info or a refresher on how the supposedly vast ages of the earth and its geology have been obtained. This article points out that the only we to make these dating systems palatable, is to take them with a grain of salt….. s8int.com

“Scientists have proposed numerous age estimation methods. Most systems promoted by Evolutionists involve radioactivity. Various radioactive elements are involved, including Carbon-14, Uranium-238, Thorium-232, and Potassium-40.

By the way, it is important to understand that most rock strata “dates” were actually assigned long before the first use of radioactive age estimating methods.

The Carbon-14 age estimating method is, at best, only useful for estimating the age of things that are thousands of years old, not millions or billions. And it does not work on rocks or thoroughly mineralized fossils; it is only useful for relatively well-preserved organic materials such as cloth, wood, and other non-fossilized materials.

Other methods must be used to estimate the age of rocks and minerals. Two of the most widely-known systems are the potassium-argon method and the uranium-lead method.

A radioactive form of potassium is found in minute quantities in some rocks. It disintegrates at a measured rate into calcium and argon. Similarly, the radioactive element uranium decomposes into lead and some other elements.

How are these processes used to estimate the age of rocks? The principle is similar to that used with Carbon-14. The speed of the disintegration process is measured. A portion of the material is ground up and a measurement is made of the ratio of radioactive “parent” atoms to the decomposition products.

Age estimates which are obviously wrong or contradictory are sometimes produced. For example, new rock in the form of hardened lava flows produced estimated ages as great as 3 billion to 10.5 billion years, when they were actually less than 200 years old.テつ

A popular and supposedly foolproof method was used on two lava flows in the Grand Canyon that should be ideal for radioactive age estimation. The results were similarly bad.

Young basalt rock at the Canyon’s top produced an age estimate 270 million years older than ancient basalt rock at the Canyon’s bottom. The problem seems to arise from basic wrong assumptions in the method (rubidium-strontium isochron).

If such a sophisticated method is so flawed, geologist Dr. Steven Austin rightly wonders, “Has anyone successfully dated a Grand Canyon rock?”"

Pyramids Older Than Egyptian Allegedly Found in Ukraine

In the last few months weテ「竄ャ邃「ve had articles on pyramids in Bosnia, Montana, China, South America and now the Ukraine. Is there a region that did not have ancient pyramids? And why pyramids?

Source: MOSNEWS.COM

Archaeologists in Ukraine have unearthed the remains of an ancient pyramidal structure that pre-dates those in Egypt by at least 300 years. The stone foundations of the structure, which probably resembled Aztec and Mayan ziggurats in South America, were discovered near the eastern city of Lugansk.

It is thought they were laid about five millennia ago during the early Bronze Age by animists who worshipped a sun god. The テ「竄ャナ菟yramidテ「竄ャツ is in fact a complex of temples and sacrificial altars topping a sculpted hillside with steps on its sides.

Viktor Klochko, head of the excavation, said the discovery was of international significance. テ「竄ャナ典his is the first monument of its age and kind found in eastern Europe,テ「竄ャツ he told the Guardian. テ「竄ャナ的t changes our whole conception of the social structure and the level of development of the cattle breeders and farmers who were the direct ancestors of most European peoples.テ「竄ャツ

There are about 100 pyramids in Egypt, and the remains of Mesopotamian pyramids are preserved in Iraq and Iran. Ziggurats are also found in Mexico, and the Nubians built pyramids as burial sites for monarchs in the Nile valley. But pyramid structures are rare in Europe. One of the few is a Roman-era pyramid near Nice, France, that may have been built by legionnaires involved in an Egyptian cult.

Although graves have been found at the Lugansk site, archaeologists think it was used for sacrifice by burning, rather than as a burial ground. テ「竄ャナ撤eople lived in the surrounding valleys and climbed up it to carry out their ceremonies,テ「竄ャツ said Mr Klochko. テ「竄ャナ典hey had a pagan cult that bowed down to the sun, as did the ancestors of the Slavs.テ「竄ャツ

Remains of sacrifice victims, ashes and ceramics have been found at the site, but no jewellery or treasure. The complex, which covered three-quarters of a square mile and was around 60 metres (192ft) high, was probably used for 2,000 years.

テ「竄ャナ展hat surprised me most is the scale of this enormous complex,テ「竄ャツ Stanislav Mogilny, a student working on the excavation, told Russian television. Itテ「竄ャ邃「s just incredible テ「竄ャ窶 a titanic feat.テ「竄ャナ

Ancient Pyramids of Montana?

“My boyfriend and I were recently traveling through Eastern Montana in August 2006 and noticed the occasional lone pyramidal-looking mountain. These look like they could be ancient pyramids from the times of antiquity, as discussed by Steve Quayle and other popular Coast guests.

They obviously show signs of wear, but that would be expected of structures that old. (If you add some reddish tint to the photos, they actually look they could be Martian landscape!)
