Our contention; there never were primitive humans. Neither do we accept the evolutionary timescale suggested here. We note however, that where ever you find human artifacts that they are consistent with intelligence and that the most cherished mythology of the evolution paradigm continues to get knocked down. Might even intelligent people have made use of the technology available to them?….s8int.com

It wasn’t supposed to happen like this.

Two years ago a team of U.S. and Greek archaeologists were combing a gorge on the island of Crete (map) in Greece, hoping to find tiny stone tools employed by seafaring people who had plied nearby waters some 11,000 years ago.

Instead, in the midst of the search, Providence College archaeologist Thomas Strasser and his team came across a whopping surprise—a sturdy 5-inch-long (13-centimeter-long) hand ax.

Knapped from a cobble of local quartz stone, the rough-looking tool resembled hand axes discovered in Africa and mainland Europe and used by human ancestors until about 175,000 years ago. This stone tool technology, which could have been useful for smashing bones and cutting flesh, had been relatively static for over a million years.

Crete has been surrounded by vast stretches of sea for some five million years. The discovery of the hand ax suggests that people besides technologically modern humans—possibly Homo heidelbergensis—island-hopped across the Mediterranean tens of thousands of millennia earlier than expected.

Many researchers have hypothesized that the early humans of this time period were not capable of devising boats or navigating across open water. But the new discoveries hint that these human ancestors were capable of much more sophisticated behavior than their relatively simple stone tools would suggest.

“I was flabbergasted,” said Boston University archaeologist and stone-tool expert Curtis Runnels. “The idea of finding tools from this very early time period on Crete was about as believable as finding an iPod in King Tut’s tomb.”

Jeff J. emailed and let me know that the video he and others had been working on; Forbidden History; Dinosaurs and the Bible had been completed and was available on the internet. Thus far I’ve only screened Part 1 (Top left) but it seems to be very well edited and presented. If the video (Part 1) doesn’t play in the window, Click Here or Here.

From Jeff:

“The video is called Forbidden History: Dinosaurs and the Bible. It is 1 hour long (7 shorter Videos). We are giving the video away with our ministry and have posted it on you tube. You can also watch the video at forbidden-history.com/dinosaur-movie.html We hope that the video will be used as a tool to educated people and also evangelize the lost.

Forbidden History: Dinosaurs and the Bible takes you on a journey to discover the evidence that dinosaurs and man have always existed together. You will be shown historical and physical evidence that man and dinosaurs have always existed together.

You will also see evidence that there may even be a few very rare living dinosaurs alive today. You will also learn of the over 30 references to dinosaurs in the historical record of the Bible.

Visit forbidden-history.com for more detailed information on the subject as well.” Jeff J. Forbidden-History.com

From the Video: the quote not the graphic
Photo: Therizinosaur. One of the many types of three-clawed dinosaurs that could be one that explorer Marco Polo could have seen and described.

“Here are found snakes and huge serpents, ten paces in length and ten spans in girth [that is, 50 feet long and 100 inches in girth]. At the fore part, near the head, they have two short legs, each with three claws, as well as eyes larger than a loaf and very glaring.

The jaws are wide enough to swallow a man, the teeth are large and sharp, and their whole appearance is so formidable that neither man, nor any kind of animal can approach them without terror. Others are of smaller size, being eight, six, or five paces long.” Marco Polo
