Several millennia ago, a revolutionary phenomenon occurred. A mysterious species arose out of nowhere with intelligence unlike any other species seen before. This new species would control the Earth with unprecedented power, but would retain little to no understanding of itself, its purpose and its relation to the grand scheme of the universe. It replaced these questions with myths, stories, and beliefs while remaining blissfully ignorant of its own potential. This dissonance would be the cause of ongoing disputes, conflicts, wars and false divisions, all stemming from the fact that our very origins are unknown. From sudden jumps in our evolution to the overly-complex design of our brain, humans occupy a strange nuance among all other species on Earth. This work examines our collective history, belief systems, religions and scientific theories to shed light on this strange territory known as the human condition. A philosophy work that draws from science, sociology, psychology and religion, The Human Anomaly explores this circumstance from a wide and unique perspective.

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.
