I personally call BS on EVERY article that states the "age" of things beyond about 5,000 years why is very SIMPLE
the oldest known civilization that was can reasonably infer data from was

Sumer is the earliest known civilization in the historical region of southern Mesopotamia, modern-day southern Iraq, during the Chalcolithic and Early Bronze ages, and arguably the first civilization in the world with Ancient Egypt and the Indus Valley. Living along the valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates
BC 5500-4500.

any other evidence is on theory on top of another on top of another basing their theories on others theories.

many things you simply cannot carbon date (which is basically are supposed best current method of "age dating") the conditions of our earth are anything but static, and even the most advance simulations/computer data hashing etc simply do NOT have all the information on things.

Just because we THINK earth s approx say 2 billions years old, does NOT make it so, the entire galaxy could have been made in the blink of an eye via a pre designed "recipe"

just like a pie fresh out of the oven, one could think that it was baked that afternoon (logical assumption knowing how long it would normally take) or it could have been frozen in the freezer for 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 years if this was possible, or even made instantaneously as soon as one walked into the room (if this was possible)

The fact is, WE DO NOT KNOW, we ASSUME, based on loose scientific study of what we "claim" we know very thoroughly...rings on a tree only tell so much, the layering of strata only can tell so much, just because our modern thinking and experiments lead us to believe in one way does not make it factually correct directly or indirectly.

much of "science" as we like to call it is loosely based on repeatable events or assumed circumstance nothing more.

the "modern world" should stop bloody well trying to convince each other on things such as this..we were not around 6000 years ago (as best as we can tell) bones in the ground or fancy rock outcroppings mean nothing, one can stage anything they want if they know how to "stage the evidence" is it too grandiose an idea to think that all we think we know has not been staged in such a fashion.

just our moon alone is claimed X amount of billions of years old, and yet if you dig into the "science" of it, the facts completely fall apart.

just like most governments it is one lie on top of another to "bury" truth or to try to convince everyone about something they really know jack #$%#$% about ^.^

Ancient Technology

Grinding stone, Dendera Temple, Egypt.
Most people know of the great construction achievements of the dynastic Egyptians such as the pyramids and temples of the Giza Plateau area as well as the Sphinx. Many books and videos show depictions of vast work forces hewing blocks of stone in the hot desert sun and carefully setting them into place.

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.
