    Two of the labs wish to remain anonymous. The third lab is the Canadian one in Thunder Bay.

    Nice to see still more evidence of the truth of the Bible, though it's not necessary. The Bible stands on its own for men to believe or not. Some men glance through it and declare it to be full of error.
    Then again, some men find light in its words and that light changes their lives.

    I'm glad that knowing the true God is predicated on simple, humble faith. To me, that's more evidence of truth. If man invented salvation, it would be full of rules and qualifications to become saved. But God fulfilled every requirement himself so that "whosoever will may come." Perfect!

    Go to Google images and search "chariot wheels in Red Sea". More fascinating evidence of the Bible's veracity.

    only one short mention of the drawings or their artist. and nothing as to how the makeup paint was concieved.... probably should have them left out of this article ...or maybe included them in alien spacecraft or something similar, or what...

    I'm not certain that derivations from sahu and sea are mutually exclusive. It's not obvious on the surface, but a comprehensive study of various European myths does show a connection between souls and the sea and the underworld and even kingship. I suspect sahu is closer to the original source, but not the original. I could be wrong, of course.

    Actually, I don't think the "landbridge theory" has been debunked, only the timing of its use. It certainly wasn't the initial way people started arriving here, because there is enough evidence that people were here before the passage between the ice sheets could be used. But from what I've seen, it seems the migration came from SE Asia, to Beringia, then down the coast to the farthest south, then northward from there (and at some point along the way, Clovis technology gets invented and eventually abandoned). I doubt these are separate distinct cultures. The earlier people are the same genetically (think Hoyo Negro's Naia) as people of Clovis cuture times (Anzick boy in Montana). They just go south to north before the ice sheets melt. And why would they be different just because of the technology they used? We are the same people here in America that use cell phones as the people that used horse and buggies. Just different points in time.

    At some point after 13,000 years ago subsequent waves also start coming from Berengia via the ice-free corridor. Thanks to research on the ancient bison fossils, we now know that was the earliest time the corridor was open. But we still need to find evidence of actual boat use, not so easy since they were made of perishable material, and they would have landed in areas now under water.

    The Greek philosopher Anaxágoras mentioned in his work "Sobre la Naturaleza" the existence of intelligent beings very similar to humans who lived in a parallel world to our own. This other world also had characteristics we would find familiar such as mountains, lakes, rivers, woods, communities etc.

    A parallel world without sun is suggested in modern times by the official report on the mysterious disappearance of Five Avenger aircraft flying a navigation training mission from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The base was in contact with the aircraft by radio throughout the five hours of their last known existence when they appeared to have entered the parallel world. They were told to fly West but were unable to do so because "the compasses didn't work" and they could not find the sun. Although they flew and flew for five hours at low level and saw many islands, they never once saw a merchant ship, fishing vessel, yacht or sign of life.

    I find it not difficult to believe that there are portals between this world and the parallel world, and that both by accident, as happened with the Woolpit children, or by design, it is possible to make the transit. The learned explanations never accept this possibility: every academic that ever was has to find the alternative explanation, no matter how complicated and bare of proof it may be.

    Fact..there still is little actual evidence of a clearly identifiable known preclovis tool technology at either Gault or Buttermilk Creek. Tools pictured could very well be fragments of clovis tools as there is no specific traits setting the technology apart from clovis tech other than the deeper location where they were found. Like the evidence Stanford has recently used to promote his solutrean connection, there is little more than speculation based on "similarities" in technology but still no coherent set of artifacts to verify an earlier known technology. All of the afore mentioned researchers are aware of known middle paleo technology being found elsewhere in the USA in at least 8 different states. Clearly identifiable levallois technology is being found by amateurs and professionals alike. Such technology predates clovis tech by thousands of years, yet Gault researchers, Dennis Stanford, and the other "brighter lights" within the pre clovis mafia are willingly ignoring the rock solid evidence consisting of thousands of levallois lithic cores and tools which are clearly paralleled by the middle paleo tech found abroad. Ignoring such clearly identifiable artifact evidence can only be interpreted as supression at this point. The question is why? Mousterian technology in the USA changes everything and they know it. The current ooa migration theory is proven to be just that, theory. Levallois technology is very well known abroad and is never mistaken or confused with other technology because it is so well known having been found more than any other early man evidence, it is unmistakeable. Identification of levallois is obvious when the cores and points and other tools are present, regardless of their location. The technology is unique regardless of where it is found. For scholars such as Stanford, Collins, Adovosio, and the others to willingly ignore such evidence while capitalizing on speculative evidence such as Gault, Meadowcroft, and the others are producing is only testimony of agenda driven archaeological exploitation of the publics lack of information due to intentional supression of evidence which both challenges and disproves the current narrative of our history which is being promoted as truth. An abundance of pre clovis technology has already been found and can be proven, why are they not investigating?

    Of course, they just accepted the world they were born into, they had nothing else in which to compare their situation. This is the reason humans are so adaptable. In their past, they've had to endure extreme hardship due to weather, health, food availability, strife... And they just took it in stride, because what other option was there? I'm sure they dreamed of a world without strife or sickness, but at the end of the day, dreams don't actually put antelope on the table.

    I'm continually shocked to see/hear how people complain about things now days as if it is the end of their little world, when their ancestors spent almost two million years living in the wild and using stone tools. Some of these people can't fathom a day spent in the rain, let alone having to capture, kill, process and cook their own dinner.

    Part of this comment is based on solid archaeology. The land masses according to a widely-accepted theory that land once formed a single continent called Pangea. Over millions of years it split apart as you've described.

    The rest of your comments are not based on any widely-accepted theories. Modern humans cannot be old enough as a species to have populated pangea. The timeline just does not work. Current theories have humans evolving into our present form about 200,000 to 175,000 years ago. This is evolution. So the change would be gradual (and is still occurring). The continents broke apart much earlier at 175 million years ago. No possibility that a human would have walked around on the supercontinent.

    My thoughts are as more and more sites are uncovered in North America we are going to have to push human occupation farther and farther back. Let us not forget Virginia Steen-MacIntyre who found evidence of human habitation in Mexico that was dated 220,000 years ago. Because she reported it it cost her a career in archaeology. Mainstream science is only looking for facts that fit into their neat little boxes. So sad.

    Wow, are you a Christian or not? I ask because only a Christian would claim that Saul of Tarsus made “heresies,” the existence of which is extremely questionable. For there to be such a thing one has to believe in the same Creator, and in the same way, anf furthermore this belief system would then have to be the same as the one promoted by Constantine as agreat deal of heresies within Christianity owe their existence to Constantine. Honestly, Jesus was never a Christian, he was a Jew. No Christians existed at any time during his life. Even Saul came along roughly thirty years after the crucifixion. How is it that his proclamations were heresies? Was it because they invited the population of the world to join into the faith? Without him, Christianity would never have become a large spiritual following. That owes its entire existence to Saint Paul. Using non-Christian sources for information is a thing I have no problem with, not being a Christian myself, I am merely asking about your own commentary in your post. It seems to contradict itself.

    THere was an alternative to the story of Genesis. HUman beings are mostly supposed to be the product of various breeding (mostly using artificial insemination) of a pig and an ape. THat is why pigs can be used in experiments so well and their parts used in transplants.This happened about 8,000 years ago. This created a fair number of "original groupings." Most of us are complex mixtures. Some like the Lappish man in Iron Sky, which you can see free on the net, more closely resemble their particular original grouping. There are three majors, the second involving Noah and his crew, and the third the origin of The Christ, artificial insemination mostly being unknown in the past. Heretics had this story of n their bikes with a umber of similar variants.

    All lives are part of the One Life, which is the Universe. The One Life is constantly creating new expressions of itself through the media of space/time and all it contains. Life is designed to be expendable. Life feeds on life, even after life. Sometimes one life requires the sustenance from many, many lives to live. This is why it sometimes provides massive numbers. Think of birds and bats feeding on gnats, or whales and krill. Life fills every niche it can find or create, just about everywhere on, and even in this planet. The One Life of the Universe is a force of continuous creation, in order to have new ways to express and experience. You don't 'lose' life. It just changes form, continually.
    Understanding this process is how you respect Life.

    Congratulations, you have successfully spouted the "Christian' line of bulll perpetuated since 325 AD, when Constantine made the heresies of Paul into civil law, the biggest heresy of all time.
    To understand Christian doctrine, you must know something about how it came to be what it is now.
    In all its glory, its warts, and its cancers,
    This is easily traced in well-supported neutral (meaning non-Christian) sourced references and historical records.

    It would be nice to have either photographs or schematics of the newly discovered tunnels as opposed to the stock photographs that we've seen numerous times.

    Your comment is way out of line. I believe he is correct. The "Judeo-Christian' values (which are more Pauline Christian than -Judeo) imposed on this society not only impedes the advance of human caring and compassion, it also attempts to suppress any exploration of knowledge that may threaten their hegemony over what constitutes the proper worship of God. Such has been the case since 325 AD.
    The penalty of non-compliance has always been death.

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.
