great article by the way.
The expense of putting mosaics in huge numbers may not have been an issue. Today in an Italian family, children help in the kitchen. I know when making gnocchi the entire family gets involved in the kitchen making these small potato dumplings. This teaches the children how to cook for the next generation. So if you are a mason, you might have a bunch of children working on cosmetic things to train them on how to sculpture in a small scale and then use their carvings as a mosaic to show off their work. Unfortunately, I may not have been quite the artist and my mother never hung my artwork on the refrigerator, but that maybe the reason I pursued a different career.
It has nothing to do with historical importance. I live near this place. It is just an excuse used by anti-mining fundation to stop the lignite mine. Nobody would talk or write about this if it would not be on the area of the open pit project.
Many archeologists feel suspicious on this one. It's too controversial, it's like trying to see alphabetic characters in the spots of the Sun that are no there. You can google for "Experts Cast Doubt On Viking Textile With ‘Allah’ Inscription" on gizmodo for full story.
“The oldest civilization on earth”? First off, John Cargill is probably right, the rock markings look more like glacial marks and ordinary fracture lines than any petroglyphs I have seen. Having studied both anthropology and geology in BC I’ve seen a fair amount of both. This sound far more like wishful thinking or an anywhere but Africa theory.
Nope. Too far south for glaciers
Yes, too many real anomalies to believe what the academic gatekeepers are telling us. They have no real answers to any of this material presented.
I think r/K selection is more accurate. Interesting about the origins of the donkey and elephant, though.
Many “myths” are truths while many "truths” are myths. I went back almost 12,000 years into history when I wrote my book, Secrets of the Pink Kush, and discovered that we have been deceived for thousands of years. The reaon for this deceit is that the tetraploid humans wish to control us and part of their strategy is to walk the left hand path of deceit.
The history of the tetraploid humans and the history of us diploid humans is quite different and yet intersects throughout history. The have always been here (since about 12,000 years ago) but always remain in hiding. The Greek and Roman gods/goddesses were in fact real. They were giants or tetraploid humans to us scientists. They control our planet and they most of the Old Testament. They occupied Atlantis until Atlantis shifted to its current location in the Antarctica. From there Hades went into the Hollow Earth or Underworld while Poseidon and Demeter remained on the surface (originally Malta, I believe) and remained to rule over us.
It was the tetraplolid humans that built the megaliths, not us. Stonehenge, Gobekli Tepe, Pyramids (Egypt, Mayan, Incan, Cambodian, Antarcitca, Mars, Ceres), Puma Punku and other megatliths that encircle the globe.
You cannot reconcile or understand history until you understand the tetraploid humans and was them that created civilization for us. We did not do many of the things that they attempt to attribute to us normal diploid humans.
Find out the real history in Secrets of the Pink Kush. It should answer most questions that you have about life, history, religion, occult, nature and GOD.
Thanks for your feedback. Excellent Article by the way. Recently a researcher pulled the LanSAT satellite images for the area. This satellite is capable of basically imaging 30 ft (by what is released to the public) below ground (it merges a few techs ground penetrating radar and multi spectral imaging). One researcher in the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzwCSpl4Liw link at about 34 min (the rest is hype) basically has found the riverbeds of the ancient rivers. Saudi was much wetter during 6,000 years ago. One of the misconceptions is that it could be referring to the merging by the sea not further in land (I believe you pointed that out too). Just additional information. Your conclusions seem well founded also.
I always found it interesting how ignorant we are. When analyzing great literature I remember a professor once telling me that you have to analyze it within the time period it was written. So if you look at the Bible or any other literature you have to put it in context. If the Bible says God created man in his own image, it could have been written in such a way at that period to say God created man to look like him, but it didn’t. Perhaps man at that time didn’t have the science to describe what was meant at the time. God could have been referring to creating man in its own distinct DNA image and forming man from the ground could simply meant that we are from the elements and compounds in the ground. Even today breathing life into someone is something that we have no scientific concept of so how do you describe giving sentiments’ to a form of life. If Norway or Ireland were talking about Leprechaun or “Wee People” they could very well have been talking about other species or shorter people like pygmies. Perhaps it’s all about context in time.
I found this piece to be thoroughly interesting. I was in school during the 60's and 70's and I have to say even back then I questioned and doubted a lot of what we were taught. I've never lost my interest in history, and have been pleased to see reports of so-called "out of place objects" over the years, and as scientific equipment and technology have advanced, also seeing the dating of objects or settlements pushed further and further back. Thank you for such an interesting and thought provoking piece Dr Jeremiah.
I always enjoy reading Dr. Jeremiah;s thoughts including this one on interpreting history and myth. But I must state that I am disturbed by his use of the nomenclature CE and BCE. It is anti Western, Christophobic and cultural appropriation. Our calendar was put together by the Catholic pope Gregory and the respectful nomenclature is AD and BC. Anything else is disrespectful and an example of cultural appropriation. Please reconsider your language.
so painting white people fighting black people is fairly meaningless. looks more like people in warpaint capturing people not in warpaint, or using colors to show "team" when painitng a conflict more than that the people looked that way
the hexagon and octagon ones were not found in roman empire because visitors who brought their own specific ones from their own country of producing, took them back home when they left. But word did spread when they were first thought of, made /forged; word got around, the idea of them for those /that use(s) caught on. Like a new idea these days that grows when a large company buys someones, new idea or invention. I wonder why they are not made of iron ? or just also carved from rock, because rock would, certainly shatter ! And not made of metal--just in case one dropped it. No..
Metal is a clue for it's purpose, Longevity especially, and endless reuse(s) Perhaps used for, trades also :)
It is strange why there are tiny circles on the flat surface at each knob.. that bras one. It can be figured sensibly that each detail has a function. not looks or decor, the whole thing had a rather major use, so why not every part, aspect, have a function too, multi uses maybe.. no candle holder, no heater, not for military. for holding string, linen strands for sewing is good possibility, But really one needs to be found with it's function present, a drawing, painting, mosaic, carving.. Since there were Olympics, could it be, for shot put.?
yeah, right.. It, can't at all, generate heat......
really interesting! it really amazed me that such a young girl had such a great influence
is there any other information that you found that isn't really relevant to the article but was interesting that you could share?
2nd picture down resembles the Sphinx to me
If these bodies were actually not buried, but left where they lay, I'd think the killers were terrified. Some diseases leave no trace in the bones, but could have been frighteningly disfigured at the time. The killers may just have been trying to prevent sick people from escaping to infect the rest of the population. They may even have evacuated the island for a time. 7 years probably wouldn't show in the excavated record.
Lovely to hear skylarks in the video. It takes me back to my training digs, and I wonder if skylarks are particularly attracted to archaeological sites. Or if May, when they are most active is the best time to excavate in dry weather with good daylight lasting a long time.
At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.
The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.
We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.
By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
