The scientists hope future investigations will show how humans, animals and plant populations interrelated at Vero. Adovasio said they hope to distinguish lifestyles of the folks who might have lived at Vero in terms of how much they match or don’t match other behavioral models from other sites ,” he told PastHorizons.

Mercyhurst Archaeological Insitute will work with Florida Atlantic University scientists to analyze ancient DNA found at the site. The idea is to better understand life forms in Florida at the end of the last Ice Age.

It makes sense to me. The bible talks about man walking along side behemoth and laviathan, which I believe are a Mastadon and a Pleisiasaur (sp?).

Peace and Love,

If the theory of Pangea is ever proven to be so the they may have already been here. I’m no archeologist nor do I know the date Pangea supposidly broke apart but it makes sense if ther dates line up. It’s hard for me to buy all these dates I hear of over fifty or one hundred thousand years. Even those dates are hard for me to buy. All I know is             that it would be hard to prove anything so old, or so I heard anyway.

One of the things that I find interesting about all of us who post comments in this site is; one really does not know who each of us are. Our level or training, education, understanding. Have we been through the institutionalized education system, are we self educated. To what degree/level, etc etc. Do we just have information which we regurgitate, are we knowledgeable, are we wise?

As to your referral to the ‘faux scientists (faux- made in imitation, artificial), as to your referral to genuflect-“ lower one’s body briefly by bending one knee to the ground, typically in worship or as a sign of respect”. Personally I am not imitating anyone of anything. Nor do I KOW TOW to anyone or anything, either in worship or respect.

Not everyone requires that little piece of paper we all like to frame and put on the wall that tells everyone that ;’Look, I have gone through the system, there for IAM more informed and educated then you. There for IAM more intelligent and knowledgeable then you and don’t you dare question what I/WE say’, or as you mention “those who have gone the route of the indoctrination religious dogma of current high church ..”

AS yourself many of us are well formed about a number of things. We are very capable of thinking for ourselves. We are very capable of putting various sources of information and knowledge together and formulating our own ideas, theories etc.

Anything is possible, nothing impossible. There is always the POTENTIAL OF.

In regards to your idea, theory or as you say ‘makes more sense of going east’ from North America instead of from Asia to North America. I am curious as to the why(?) it makes more sense. Could you please expand on your theory?

Currently with our level of understanding and knowledge it ‘makes more sense’ that the route of travel was from Asia to North America either by land or sea or both with the passage of time. Also there seems to be the potential possibility that we humans had other routes to North America other then the Asian route.

Anything is possible providing one keeps an open mind. Further, any and all ideas or theories are just that. Ideas and theories based on?

oh, the religious dogma of current high-church anthropology. Gotta love the faux-scientists that genuflect to this decade's THEORIES. What actual HARD evidence is there for the Bering strait migration from Asia to Alaska? NONE. don't cite DNA as that means only that some Asians are related to or DESCENDED from American natives. makes more sense going west, not east.

To believe that early humans could not build boats and colonize along the coast as they traveled is blind to what humans have always done.

Myths & Legends

For nearly 30 years I have returned to the famous “Sleeping Prophet” Edgar Cayce’s readings as a road map to try and piece together the complex origins of civilization and the creation of Homo sapiens. Cayce (March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) was an American Christian mystic born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky who answered questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis, and future events while in a trance state.

Ancient Technology

The calendar is one of mankind’s most important inventions. Calendars allowed societies to organize time for religious, social, economic, and administrative purposes. The calendar, or rather, two sets of calendars, were invented by the ancient Egyptians. One of these was a lunar calendar, which was used mainly for the organization of religious festivals.

Ancient Places

Healing Temple of Aesculapius (Asklepios) by Robert Thom
In the ancient world, many cultures built elaborate temple complexes dedicated to their healer gods - Imhotep in Egypt and Asklepios in Greece for example. These gods were recognized as having the power to cure supplicants from a variety of ailments within sleep and sacred dreams. Those who desired healing might travel many hundreds of miles to reach such a temple

Our Mission

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.
