  • Reply to: The Ancient Origins of Some Dead or Dying Languages   59 min 25 sec ago
    Comment Author: JA Bosworth

    There is no compelling reason to suppose that there was once a single language that all human species and ethnicities spoke. (International communication on a significant scale is a relatively recent phenomenon, perhaps starting no more than 10,000 years ago).The available evidence strongly suggests that prehistoric humans - Homo Habilis, Homo Ergaster, Homo Erectus, Home Denisova, Homo Floresiensis, Homo Sapiens (Neanderthalensis), Homo Sapiens sapiens (Cro-Magnon), etc - lived in widely dispersed small nomadic family groups in quite different local environments around the world. Therefore, they naturally would have developed their own modes of speech independently. When such groups met, they would have to develop a common dialect (language) for communication, but most of them probably didn't meet many (or any) other groups, so a global common language would never have emerged. The fact that many languages appear to have a common root-source may simply be due to the relative similarity of vocalising physiology amongst the various species and ethnicities.

    I an very interested in reading the ancient Hebrew version. By chance did you write down or could you read while recording and then publish? I would be willing to pay you to transcribe it for me until I learn to do so myself.

    It's good to keep an open mind and continue to search and "test out" the scriptures. Religion as a whole and especially Christendom has a poor record of adhering to the actual teachings of Jesus Christ. Jesus taught using many illustrations. One being the field of wheat sown with weeds. It wasn't until the harvest time that the weeds would be apparent and burnt by the master of the harvest. That prophetic time is of much interest to me. Not all who live a christian way of life are hypocrites. Or stupid.

    It is possible to believe in creation of the universe and the earth by a supreme being and not be in contradiction with the Bible's account of the creative days. If you were to read for yourself what it actually says. "In the beginning god created the heavens and the earth." No number is given. The time periods called, "day" are unspecified periods of time. Religious interpretations and the actual wording are not always compatible, it is true, but no reason to throw out the whole bible because some believe a literal length of time. Since the universe and the earth and all its varied life forms demonstrate order, it is logical that the creative days would have a definite beginning and end. . For example, we might say, "In your grandfather's "day" such and such. That expression refers to a period of time, not a specific number. Likewise, the Creator's timetable would naturally be much longer than a 24 hour day, or even a thousand year day, .I would always leave the door open for discussion and learning, because what if you are mistaken and too dogmatic in your viewpoint to benefit yourself? You may be missing out if a large way.

    For one, I believe that this world has been visited and inter-acted with cultures from other galaxies. The method of their journeys are probably most confusing to many, albeit focused scholars, and lay persons.
    Even in the Bible, the authors assigned to impart divine information, wrote of various ages of this world and contacts made, throughout the epochs. Such narratives are also recorded around the globe from ancient times, through many languages; ie: The Tibetan Book of the Elders,, and the Dead.

    Where this race of advanced travelers came from is up for speculation, and research starting from the monuments, decayed cultural remains, and oral histories noted and visual around the world.
    I've personally read accounts of the Vimanas from ancient Vedic text and have seen the remains from what appears to be a city destroyed by an Atomic Blast such as those thousands of years later in 20th Japan(1945).
    There is no question in my mind that this planet Earth has been and will from time-to-time be visited by extra-galactic neighbors. Yes, Worm-Holes exist and they've been used before. Sometime in the future, our race will embrace that technology, but it'll be when 'we' wish to truly forge a future of our race in the universe, and not before.
    Those technologies that came here and helped build various structures, have long ago learned from experience what and what not to do, to enabled their future and pass it on. They are the Elder Race as Sprague DeCamp refered to them and was again referred to by the survivors of the most recent planetary catastrophe, Atlantis, whom spread across the globe in groups and help found and energise cultures we debate today.

    Think about it,and bless your lucky stars you have something serious to research.
    Ciao!

    The Derinkuyu, Turkey, and the Hypogeum, Malta are the same people, the same stone culture through the ages, check the similarities between the two underground cities. they are identical. I can go on and on as to how this culture has influenced our world from the time of the 11 thousand year old temple in Gobekli tepe, Turkey. much can be said about this three stone sites in the connection to Stonehenge, Egypt and precolonial America, the proof is literally written in stone. also check single stone carved temples, all of them are interconnected by the same, not different, some-what similar stone cultures. I mean the same culture and the proof is in the details and carvings and one more thing that ties them to the same sun worshiping culture, yes, the sun God. the disk you see on the back of saints come from that same culture.

    Actually, it wasn't the greys, it was the Procyons. The common 'confusion' is because a strain of the greys. The Rigellian 'group' came from the same genetic pool that the Procyons did, and they share a common ancestor. The Procyons remained human looking while do to genetic manipulation and extreme exposure to radiation during nuclear wars. The rigellians that later became the greys degraded into what we see now the most common 'short' grey. The other strain of greys that are common in the gene pool here on the planet though along with the Rigelian, as I believe you are thinking of the Zeta and Rigelian greys.

    The Eloa, are the grey / rigelian / pleiadian hybrids that are most commonally referred to as the Tall Greys. And it's the Rigelian Blondes and the Procyons that are most commonally referred to as the Tall Whites. While the Pleiadians are most commonly referred to as the Nordics. Among the "ET" crowd.

    Andrija and Puharic and Nikola Tesla are both CROATIANS
    Why is so important to Serbs to make Tesla Serbian ?
    His father was priest at Eastern Orthodox Church
    Not Serbian !
    After 1918 OCCUPATION, Serbs disbanded Eastern Orthodox Church
    Stole their property (chuches) and forcefully assimilated flock as Serbians
    All that is cause for continuous troubles between Serbs and Croats

    There is not a single story in the old testament that is not taken from some other culture, misrepresented or completely changed by the Jewish religious leaders. Almost nothing (more like nothing at all) they say is original or factual. Christianity sits on top of it all. and all of it is mostly to completely fictitious or misrepresentations of actual reality.

    its an amazing thing when you think about it.

    The book I wrote is theoretical, and yet the proofs are indisputable, in the book I talk about the before and after the out of Africa theory, and what has happened to us ever since, the book is almost done been edited and I was still writing a week ago, the information I have stumble onto is incredible, the evidence that many scientist have been theorizing about have been misinterpreted and because one thing that I theorized about made sense, I have been able to connect it to other pieces of evidence to make better sense. I am not a trained writer and that's going to be obvious, but, the process that went into writing is very simple, I theorized about what the Neanderthals really looked like and then wrote about it, but the important thing is in how the proof of that is embedded in and on us, and everything that we have become, we can thank the Afro-Neanderthal encounter and interbreeding, a good portion of the book was spent explaining that, but what I had not counted on was what came after, previously unknown pieces of history, lost to the ages, but the evidence is there staring us in the face, just don't know what is it that we are looking at, did you see Disney's " the little mare maid" were Arial was describing common household items to her fish friends, only we know that she wasn't right, well that is how I feel scientist and historians have been describing common household items of the ages to us, were we are the fish, and when this scientist and historians get frustrated with it, they just say, well it was the space aliens who did it. my book offers alternatives to those items of evidence and the choice as to who is right about the explanations, will be left after very intelligent readers, much like yourselves.
    as far as the illustration that describes the Neanderthal there is none, I cannot find an interested illustrator to work on it, they all have passed, not interested. the book will go on without the illustration, but once it is illustrated you will be surprised that it does not look anything like it has been portrayed to be, mostly because they were not human like us, but 100% genetically able to interbreed, at the moment there's till hope and time to work on that illustration, another thing is that, other than the editors no one else have red the book, no scientist nor historians, which is too bad, because is going out to print with or without their acknowledgements. my guaranty about my book, is that when you see the visual clues to the explanations, your hairs will stand on the back of your necks. write me and tell me if you are interested in hearing more, because there is so much more.

    @Veronica Daze,
    I´ll second your reply very much!
    Heiser himself admit his astronomical knowledge isn´t that good, and still he interpret and translate specific astronomical facts from the written ancient and mythical texts.
    Except from the fact that ancient people also sensed via their spiritual and intuitive skills, much of the ancient myths speaks of very natural phenomenae on and above the Earth which still is observable for us today.
    Most of the ancient knowledge is just a simple question of observing the celestial Sky on clear nights and compare the motions with the ancient Myths of Creation. The celestial pole (Nibiru) is obvious; star constellations is named as both humans and animals which is intertwined in the myths and especially the crescent contours of the MIlky Way plays a great part in the numerous cultural creations stories all over the world.
    Scholars who just have their noses in books and never observe this concrete scenario, cannot interpret and connect the ancient myths and cosmology correctly. Sitchin and the followers of Immanuel Velikovski´s catastrophic ideas of "World in Collision". obviously never have observed and studied the natural skies.
    They all confuse the primeval Milky Way deities as "planetary deities" and the Ancient Astronaut society all interpret the allegorical prime creational deities as real beings "coming down from the Sky" instead of readig these stories correctly as telling of "how everything came to be" i.e. cosmologically how the creation took place in our Milky Way from which center our Solar System is formed.

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.
