Science

The field of Science has much to contribute to our understanding of human origins.  Indeed it is Science which has enabled us to explore the fascinating findings related to the fossil and genetic records of our ancient ancestors. So to the fields of palaeontology, anthropology, molecular biology and archaeology have vastly increased our understanding of human beings and the way they lived many thousands of years ago.

Typically, the scientific answer to the question, ‘Where did human beings come from?’ is often met with explanations about evolution and natural selection. We are told that humans share a common ancestral heritage with apes and emerged from a primate past through a process of random genetic variations.  Nevertheless, there is a growing body of scientists who point to ever more reasons for doubting the standard evolutionary story and who provide cause to look in new directions.

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.
