Darwin Theory Debunked - Washington Man

New Fossil Turns Darwin’s Theory of Human Origins Upside Down

The Smithsonian Institution's Hall of Human Origins has announced that one of its scientists has discovered a hominid skull fragment that is approximately 5 million years old, drawing Darwin’s theory of human origins into question.

The skull fragment, which was unearthed at an excavation site in Washington DC has been designated to belong to a new species called Homo washingtoniensis or ‘Washington Man’.

Scientific theory has long believed that our earliest human ancestor came from Africa. This was based on the discovery of a 4.4 million year old hominid in Ethiopia in 1992 called Ardipithecus ramidus ("Ardi").  However, the story of human evolution will now have to be radically revised in light of the latest finding.  "Instead of originating in Africa," a Smithsonian spokesman said, "humanity clearly got its start here in Washington, D.C... Scientists at the Smithsonian have always been open to new evidence, even if it challenges long-standing theories, and this new evidence turns Darwin's theory of human origins completely upside down."

Researchers at the Smithsonian Hall of Human Origins have combined Washington Man’s skull fragment with some unidentified fragments found in the same region in order to reconstruct a complete skull.  From this, they have been able to recreate the probable appearance of Washington Man. The results have been published in Reports of the National Center for Science Education.

Interestingly, the Smithsonian Institute published this study on the first of April. Could it be that this report was all just a joke? We think so ...

Reconstruction of what the monument in the Siwa Oasis would have once looked like
The discovery of the Tomb of Alexander the Great, cannot be considered a chance event but it was the result of many years of study and research into a remote area, where no one had previously searched for his tomb. It took around twenty years of study to find the magic key that would resolve the great mystery of the location of the site of the tomb.

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.
