The famous Ica Stones in the collection of Professor Cabrera.

Library in Stone: The Ica Stones of Professor Cabrera – Part II

(Read the article on one page)

I came to the realization that the dismissive attitude of orthodox science annoyed and aggrieved Professor Cabrera. He frequently voiced his outrage at the refusal of mainstream scientists to acknowledge as genuine the library in stone. “One is able to read the engraved stones like a book!” the argumentative museum director emphatically reiterated.

Fantastic Finds or Forgeries?

Professor Javier Cabrera Darquea has in the course of decades created one of the most unusual museums on the planet that I’ve ever seen. On display are artifacts en masse that—if they are genuine—would necessitate the re-writing of the history of humanity. Those who travel to research the secrets of our planet regularly come upon unpleasant, mysterious artifacts.

In countless museums, one can learn, oftentimes in graphic detail, much about the evolution of the human race. Precious exhibits illustrate the development from the primitive single cell organism to the computer expert. The visitor can thus retrace the mechanism of evolution: as a driving force behind the creation of the present fauna as well as the rise of human beings from the primitive ‘homo sapiens’ to current mankind.

The theory of evolution is reverently glorified as the modern form of a scientifically acknowledged deity. Centuries ago it was blasphemy to doubt the biblical God. No longer is ‘God the father’, the creator, the driving force; modern, enlightened humans follow the new gospel. And even more frowned upon in scientific circles is the great goddess who continually gives birth; according to ancient belief systems, she has brought forth all life, adhering to the eternal cycles of death and rebirth. The patriarchal god has supplanted the goddess, and in modern science she has been replaced by the holy theory of evolution. The latter is nowadays just as sacred in the allegedly illuminated circles of the noble sciences as the almighty creator god of the Bible was centuries ago.

But something has indeed changed: centuries ago, heretics were tortured and burned. Today, they must fear for their livelihood if they endeavor to claim a seat in the world of the scientific establishment. The atheistic circles of science have their taboos, too.

Scientific publications of our time proclaim ‘the truth’ just as loudly as religious treatises of diverse persuasions did back then. And just like theologians, for example, burned the texts that did not fit into the concept of the Bible, or simply forbade them, so museum artifacts that do not fit into the general doctrine suffer a pathetic existence. They disappear in musty cellars, if they are not destroyed altogether—because they are allegedly worthless.

The unchallengeable canon of ‘the scientific truth’ is: evolution led to a gradual, and continual rise. Modern man has climbed the zenith, all humanoid ancestors were more primitive, all previous cultures were more primitive. There cannot have existed highly advanced cultures thousands, even tens of thousands of years ago, which in many ways were superior to ours. Why not? Because according to scientific ideology, there must not be such a highly advanced culture in existence. However, someone who wishes to read the history of mankind unbiased, and like an exciting, informative book, must not subject his or her thinking to the oppression of a dogma.

Objects that do not fit into the general concept of history will not be exhibited in the hallowed halls of our museums. They suffer a pitiable existence in archives and cellars, and are inaccessible to the public. Or they will simply be ignored. Objects that have no room in the doctrine of orthodox science will swiftly declared to be forgeries. They must be forgeries—they cannot be genuine, because they are not permitted to be genuine.

Cabrera’s engraved stones and clay sculptures, for example, clearly depict prehistoric saurians, or dinosaurs. How does one deal with such objects? How does one classify them? One can easily declare them to be forgeries, according to a simple dictum: thousands of years ago, people in South America could not have known anything about saurians. Therefore, artifacts depicting saurians cannot possibly be thousands of years old.

Alternative Thinking

But, there is an alternative! Is perhaps our idea of the level of knowledge that people had who lived in South America thousands of years ago wrong? Perhaps we must change our hypothesis about South America’s distant past, and make room for unpleasant archaeological finds. Our theses about the past of humanity must not be an untouchable set of principles. They must constantly be scrutinized.


I’ve been interested in OOPARTS for a number of years. I’ve read many tales of archaeologist who lose their credibility for opposing “Mainstream” archeology. The supposedly ancient carvings in areas of the Grand Canyon that are off limits to tourists is a topic that I feel deserves some investigation.

I doubt anyone will stick out their necks so far as to make themselves a target for opposition. As for the Ica Stones, most articles I've seen never accounted for the 3 Earth Ages of 2nd Peter in the Scriptures. By the time truth comes out, it will be end times and no longer relevant to certain folk who want to know, nor the folk whose interests are in keeping truth covered up. Any readers of America B.C. know that libyans, egyptians, ancient hebrews and many others were in america, years before it was "discovered" because, copper was mined in Mich, and the country mapped out for known minerals, not to mention coins/money being found off the waterways as well and most of them worked off the main waterways while here, and I would not be too surprised to eventually find out Tin was mined here as well, besides ancient briton !

One thing I wanted to say about these is, I believe these were made sometime during the 1st earth age, and I do realize my comment falls way outside of typical mainstream comments as most are written to keep people inside the box that was framed for them.

Anyways, the stones told stories of the days in which those people lived, but as for whether or not people actually rode on huge birds is highly suspect, but more likely was just entertainment/fantasy of the time, but the carvers/engravers were highly skilled artisans of their time.

ANYONE can see the craftsmanship involved. Also seems they told stories, the artisans themselves likely witnessed of medicine and births. I don't believe they were phonied up at all !

And because nothing is written about the 1st earth age, there is nothing to compare it to, eh ?

Why do you doubt that humans flew on giant birds? That seems rather arbitrary given that you think the rest of what the stones depict is true.

“….The unchallengeable canon of ‘the scientific truth…..”    Oh I LOVE that line. By simply ‘saying’ it it becomes true.  

Scientific ‘truth’ is more theory than truth. The linear advancement theory of mainstream archaeological/scientific inquiry is, quit simply put, ‘a lot of malarchy’. Highly advanced civilizations existed long before the fables of today’s beginnings were solidified into scientific dogma.  The Great Sphinx of the Giza plateau exhibits unchallengable and undeiniable evidence of WATER EROSION. There hasn’t been water in the Giza plateau for 12000 years. But “scientific truth” will continue to propound that the monument is only 5000 years old because that fits in nicely with the biblical nonsense meme which science is forced to adhere to.

Myths & Legends

A legend is a tale regarded as historical even though it has not been proven, and the term “myth” can refer to common yet false ideas. Many myths and legends describe our history, but they are often treated skeptically. This is because many of them, while explaining a phenomenon, involve divine or supernatural beings.

The imperfect state of archaeological researches in the Near East impedes any definite identification of the original race or races that created the earliest civilizations of Mesopotamia and Egypt. According to Gordon Childe, however, the predominant racial element in the earliest graves in the region from Elam to the Danube is the ‘Mediterranean’.

Deep in the heart of Saudi Arabia, 400 peculiar stone structures have been found, dating back thousands of years ago. These stone features were discovered by archaeologists with the use of satellite imagery, identifying what they call stone "gates" in an extremely unwelcome and harsh area of the Arabian Peninsula.


The ancient and mysterious Sphinx, Giza, Egypt.
In 1995, NBC televised a prime-time documentary hosted by actor Charlton Heston and directed by Bill Cote, called Mystery of the Sphinx. The program centered on the research and writings of John Anthony West, a (non-academic) Egyptologist, who, along with Dr. Robert Schoch, a professor of Geology at Boston University, made an astounding discovery on the Great Sphinx of Giza in Egypt.
