    This may be manipulated to show the presence of Iron and the people of Iron were in South India from long back than other part of India and finally want to sanskritize the Southern India.

  • Reply to: Sea-Farers from the Levant the first to set foot in the Americas: proto-Sinaitic inscriptions found along the coast of Uruguay   1 hour 34 min ago
    Comment Author: David Rawlings

    Uruguay is a small country, relatively flat to the point that it's highest altitude is a little over 500 meters. There are no extensive outcrops of rocks along it's entire coastline just dunes. Anyone can check this out in a very short period of time. The coast is all of 660 km in length. In aerial photos such as those on Google the dunes appear entirely similar to the photos in your article, except they are not covered in the pits that you describe, rather they are covered in small bushes etc.. In fact more often than not, they are covered in off-road vehicle tracks. There are no remote, inaccessible, sections of coastline to hide a "4700 metre long, white crystalline rock formation running along the Southern Atlantic coastline of Uruguay". No, just 600 or so km of white, crystalline SAND, generally not known for retaining written words for very long at all.

    Lovely overview! Dee is one of those compelling historical figures because of the sheer showmanship he brought to creating what was essentially a celebrity persona; this is contrasted by the amusing suspicion that he was just a dodgy geezer. Not as dodgy as his mate Kelly, (at the time calling himself Talbot, I think) who was a convicted forger!

    Intriguing possibility! It would be wonderful if more evidence could be found regarding Boudicca’s final fate, as it’s such a powerful story. Whether the grave is her’s or not, it’s still a fascinating grave find with beautiful artefacts.

    Thanks for the article!

    The Black Sea expedition discovered many artefacts on the flooded floor of the Black Sea (which has been claimed as the site of 'Noah's Flood' as the basin was suddenly flooded by the Mediterranean around 9,000 years ago, drowning an extensive civilisation). Many of these were iron implements perfectly preserved by the oxygen-depleted acidic waters at the bottom of the sea - not far from ancient iron mines in Turkey that have been dated to at least the same era.
    As most iron artefacts will have entirely rusted away over this period it's highly likely that iron use was far more extensive much earlier than supposed by the archaeologists of the last century.

    Only Euro-centric people still cling to the idea that Europeans started world exploration.  Because of major catastrophes that have struck the earth over the last many thousand years, including at least one that almost wiped out humans according to geneticists, we don’t have great historical records, or more accurately, we have almost no historical records, before 2000 BCE, or at the earliest 3000 BCE.  And even there, we have to speculate as to the meaning of a lot of it, and some we still haven’t deciphered, such as the Harappa and Linear A.

    But we do know human nature and we do know that humans only about 10000 years ago had much larger brains on average than we do today, so who really can doubt that ancient humans built ships and sailed all over.  The Polynesians made it to South America for sure.  Who can doubt that many others made it to the western hemisphere, including people from the Mediterranean, Africa, and China.

    Sure, people may have lived in caves in Europe 10000 BCE, but in Gobeke Tepli they built amazing stuff.  And in Turkey they built amazing underground cities.

    One of the ingredients of the holy anointing oil discribed in the bible is Kaneh Bosm, most likely cannabis and not sweet calamus wich it is falsely translated to.

    La alusion a la pilosidad no es casual. Tambien se decia que la reina tenia una deformidad en el pie y lo cubria para no ser visto. En el Sur de Francia hay un paralelismo cataro: la reina Pedauque, que tenia un pie palmeado, como los patos...Todas las representaciones de la muje ``sabia´´, ``iniciada´´ en el Saber, era representada con una sola pierna descubierta.

    How brilliant to have found an example of the dragon that fits the mould that they’ve had for so long! There’s a picture of a replica of the design here from the Swedish History Museum: https://www.flickr.com/photos/historiska/6909049885/

    Thanks for the article!

    The first illustration (very top) on the right is clearly a peyote button. I get a second to last authorship when that breaks the code.

    "It reached India between 2000 B.C. and 1000 B.C., when the region was invaded by the Aryans, a group that spoke an archaic Indo-European language. They called cannabis “bhang.” In India, the Aryan religion grew through oral tradition and was recorded in the four Vedas, or books of knowledge compiled between 1400 and 1000 B.C. They worshiped the spirits of plants and animals, and marijuana played an active role in their rituals."

    Indeed, the mummies found in western China, the white mummies, were the Tocharians...Toch=Red-headed, arians=Aryans...found buried in one instance with 5 kilos of marijuana. He was a shaman.

    It was traded along the Silk Road by the YueZhi...of which the Tocharians were a subset/tribe.
    The YueZhi are aka "asii," they used onagers..."asses"... as pack animals. Later known as Assyrians. Assi Aryans.

    The Yue tribe of the Wei river valley had a very curious "coincidence": one of their historical/mythical kings built irrigation canals....his name was Yuyu. Yu of Wei. Meanwhile...in Egypt, "Joseph" built irrigation canals...the "Bar Yusef" remains to this day....built by "Yuya"...the asaf Ja....Joseph. Yuya's initials in a temple built for him by "Amenhotep III" was YHW.

    Yahweh.....Yue of Wei. Remember that article here on those "strange statues" found buried in China last year?? THAT is Yuya/Yuyu...Yu of Wei. YHWH. Those are just a few of the many titles and names he possessed. Tushratta the Tocharian Mittani/Medes king would be another. The Greek Minyan from Akhmin of the Minya province of Egypt would be another. Atreus, Teres, Attarissija....the list is quite extensive.

    Now twist up a fattie, light her'up and mull over that fact....and also think about this: Yuya is supposedly the brother of Nefertiti's father (Ay)...and many people have noticed that Nefertiti has "Chinese eyes." Indeed. She was sent to Egypt by Tushratta to marry Amenhotep III, she came from "Mittani" which traded along the Silk Road. An "Indo-Aryan princess." From a horse riding culture...Eurasians....have you never noticed how some of her images make her face look like a horse? It is obvious...if you look.

    Nefertiti...it does not mean "The Beautiful One Has Come." It means "Beautiful" (Nefer) "Aditi" (Titi). The beautiful Mother Goddess: Aditi. Yes, it does.

    Her real name" TaduKhepa." Silent "k." The "Hepa" was pronounced Eva. The "t(a)d(u)" is just supposition by scholars: there were no vowels...it was most probably Diti. EvaDiti...Mother Goddess Aditi.

    Vedic Aryans....the rulers of the land called Mudriya....Land of the Mud....that Greek invaders labeled "Egypt": the land of Ptah/Buddha.

    But that's a whole 'nother story for another time. Try wrapping your head around this new paradigm of the CORRECTED HISTORY...spells of distorted histories backed by mainstream dogmatic "scholarship" not an easy thing to break...You know who the Yues are....there were no "J" in the alphabets back in ancient times.

    "The Message that points to Christ on the Cross seems like sheer silliness to those hellbent on destruction, but for those on the way of salvation it makes perfect sense. This is the way God works, and most powerfully as it turns out" ~ 1 Cor. 1:18, The Message.

    Jan, it's not difficult to "find out for a fact He exists." You might have to put your ego on hold and ask questions rather than make statements but we stop learning when we stop asking questions. I'll give you the challenge a friend gave me several years ago: If you don't know whether there is a God and you really want to know, ask. My friend suggested something like, "I don't know if you exist and if you do, I don't know if I even like you. But I want to know truth. Please let me know if you're there." Then listen, for as long as it takes.

    God's Son wasn't just blowing smoke when he said, "Ask and it will be given to you. Search and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened for you" ~ Matthew 7:7, Luke 11:9, Phillips Translation.

    The established chronological history of humanity has been extended by some 1,000 years according to Anatoly Fomenko. Events we have been led to believe took place at a particular juncture in history are thus compressed into a much narrower time frame. The illusion of 'long ago' and 'far away' has been firmly established in the collective mind. What the world needs now is the myopic view of Mr. Magoo. Given unfolding events the question arises, do you believe the establishmentarians or your own 'lying eyes'?

    A planetary conjunction will take place May 28, 2015 that may be a trigger that results in a sudden, dramatic discharge of the earth capacitor, which according to Italian theoretical physicist Giovanni Gregory would precipitate majory seismic and volcanic activity. The angst normally experienced by animals before such events is now being sensed on a large scale by the human population. It could well be that an enlightened elite has executed plans to contain the chaos that will ensue by contriving another disassociated threat as a means of gaining control over the unwitting population before these natural catastrophic events become manifest to all. Manufactured terror is a most useful tool in these naturally terrifying times.

    The events of the 6th Century cataclysm are once again well underway. The sun failed to reach maximum during its last cycle and has gone into a quiescent mode known as a Grand Minima. One of the more recent Grand Minimas was the Maunder (1645-1710) during which the River Thames in London froze. Simultaneously across the pond during the American Revolution the colonists endured a particulary severe winter, the event frozen in time by a portrait of Washington crossing the icey Delaware. In a nutshell another Ice Age is upon us as thoroughly documented by John L. Casey (http://www.spaceandscience.net/id1.html). Italian theoretical physicist Giovanni Gregory has postulated that the earth is a giant capacitor which is simultaneously charged and discharged over the course of the solar cycle, from maximum to minimum. The discharge of the earth capacitor manifests in the form of seismic and volcanic activity which is increasing dramatically on a global scale. The increase in volcanic activity, and more importantly, the eruption of one or more of the numerous super volcanoes around the globe of which Yellowstone is but one, the sudden addition of massive amounts of particulates into the atmosphere exponentially reduces solar heat reaching the earth's surface thus accelerating already declining temperatures and plunging the earth into another Ice Age in very short order. You might recall the Wooley Mammoths which were flash frozen repleat with fresh Daisies in their gobs. Furthermore, as the sun continues in a quiescent mode, the heliosphere contracts, dislodging asteroids and drawing them into the inner solar system to the menace of orbiting planets such as our own. These facts are well known amongst a few at the top of the social pyramid whom are prepared to weather the dire consequences that are soon to come upon us. Knowledge is power and it is to the benefit of a few that the majority never learn the lessons of history.

Our Mission

Ancient Origins seeks to uncover, what we believe, is one of the most important pieces of knowledge we can acquire as human beings – our beginnings.

While many believe that we already hold such knowledge, our view is that there still exists a multitude of anomalies and mysteries in humanity's past that deserve further examination.

We therefore wish to foster an open community that is dedicated to investigating, understanding and explaining the origins of our species on planet earth. To this end, we aim to organize, support and even finance efforts in this direction.

Our aim is to move beyond theories and to present a thorough examination of current research and evidence and to offer alternative viewpoints and explanations to those currently held by mainstream science and archaeology.

Come with us on a journey to explore lost civilisations, sacred writings, ancient places, unexplained artefacts and scientific mysteries while we seek to reconstruct and retell the story of our beginnings.
