Historical texts identify Macedonians not being the Illyrians, they were separate groups. And the image of the cone head statue you linked is from Italy, 2nd century CE. If you believe it's supposed to represent Alexander, it's long removed from his life time.
I am interested in the health benefit
This is a Peratt plasmoid shape, it is the cosmic thunderbolt or trident, found commonly in many cultures. You can download Peratt's groundbreaking paper online and see the plasmoid shapes produced for yourself.

It is also a part of Irish Oral Tradition that The Gaels were the herdsmen of the Chariot Warrior Scythians (who were Iron Smelters) and with them migrated across Europe to the North West Region of Spain, and from there to Ireland.
just out of curiosity, where in this judeo-xtian torah/bible (excluding the muslims, which i'm sure they're fine with) is this magical particolor egg laying rabbit prophesied/mentioned?
I am told by those that claim to know that this easter bunny both predates judaism, and does not reference jesus.
I must point out, as a hunter, that I frequently make traps of multiton stones, because that's the easiest way to trap tasty animals on high mountain peaks.
It is clear that these pictograms represent a history, and included in that history, if current professional interpretations are correct, is the devastating impact and airburst of numerous cometary fragments that are also believed to have caused the Younger Dryas just prior to the time these stela were constructed.
The information conveyed to their progeny with these monoliths was stored on media that was persistent through such cataclysm, megaliths, in a universal language, pictograms of the zodiac etc...
This was a sophisticated record from a people who understood very well the change over time of language, and the delicacy of other forms of written record, implying a society that was familiar with the pests and other destructive processes that make paper and parchment so temporary.
With cranes and power tools we might be able to recreate such a construction today, but it is notable that we do not use such megaliths, and reflect on why that is. It is much easier and cheaper to build with smaller stones and bricks. However things constructed thusly are far less durable.
The only reason people have used megaliths to build is to make things endure. That these megalithic structures around the world have indeed endured millenia, while nothing else has, is self evident.
Fertility rites and rituals wouldn't necessarily be restricted to crops, didn't Neanderthal groups have a low birth rate, if so then fertility would have been a big concern, no offspring, no tribe. Also as it was placed by some bones that had been colored it may have been an offering for the fertility of mammoths.
Anyone from New England could tell you made those. Here in New Hampshire, as in the six other New England states, there are miles of similar stone walls throughout the landscape and woods. Made by whom? Colonists, settlers and farmers in the 18th and 19th centuries clearing the land for agriculture and livestock. It's that simple; no need to invoke Chinese adventurers or refugees from the Lost Continent of Mu.
DNA test will help. The specimens found are within the time range of already studied archaic species.
I agree Justbod, it is better is some things remain mysterious. For example, when a detailed study of Loch Ness, it was determined that there is just not enough food to support a viable population of large animals. That was a very disappointing end to that search.
(BTW, there is enough food for one large immortal creature, so I choose to believe that 'Nessie' is a supernatural. Perhaps a mischievous dragon showing parts of itself to mess with people...)
I don’t think it’s been tested. My understanding is that “It is too Holy” for scientific testing
I agree with you. As long as everyone thinks thier religion is the best or only one that really worships God, we will never have peace
The gods who made human slaves exiled the Canaanites to the Americas after they genetically modified them so they could not grow a beard. This is another way you can know America is the Mountains of Israel and Zion and Armageddon. The entire government are evil treasonous criminals! The day of the next false flag using the nuke the evil government stole in 2007 and blamed on Iran, America will be annihilated by Russia, China and the SCO. This is the war of Armageddon and you can know it is now because of Planet X and the toxic chemtrails that hide it every day globally for the past decade. Planet X will end the war when it rips the earth apart again but by then 90% of Americans will be dead already. All planned by your evil government and their evil alien masters!
From the very first picture I was immediately convinced that these were similar to pictures I've seen of cetacean flippers. The bones are just too curved to serve any useful purpose for primate hands. The curvature makes more sense for a rowing / swimming function. I'm no scientist, it's just common sense, but I guess people will believe whatever they want to or twist the facts to suite their version of the truth.
Most interesting article. Has anyone done something similar with ancient Chinese, Indian or Native American medicines?
Having no tongue does not stop any one from screaming.
Also the smell of humans burning would fight against the incense that would be sweetening the air.
Creodonta was not in the line of carnivora but was rather a separate grouping and may have actually been closer related to sheep or goats. Also, African Wild Dogs are a sub genus within the Genus Canis though they have split off far enough that they can no longer breed with wolves etc.
Many years ago I started to search the morphology and rehythmology of the Tomb of Cyrus the Great, when I discovered some strange and imported details which never have been mentioned before.
In 1985, I had the opportunity to present it in S.O.A.S., receiving the congratulations of Professor David Stronach about my discovery.
It would be my great pleasure to see it published in Ancient Origins.
I am professor of Bioclimatic Architecture, also specialized in constructions for handicapped children, reconstruction and repairing of historical and ancient buildings.

Well put, 'Ha Ha'!
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.
