Library in Stone: The Ica Stones of Professor Cabrera – Part II
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 The patriarchal god has supplanted the goddess, and in modern science she has been replaced by the holy theory of evolution.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.
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.
