Book description:

The Human AnomalySeveral 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.

Most people who have the Rh blood type are Rh-positive. There are also instances, however, where people are Rh-Negative. Health problems may occur for the unborn child of a mother with Rh-Negative blood when the baby is Rh-Positive.

Ancient Technology

Imagine a glass you can bend and then watch it return to its original form. A glass that you drop but it doesn’t break. Stories say that an ancient Roman glassmaker had the technology to create a flexible glass, ‘vitrium flexile’, but a certain emperor decided the invention should not be.

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.
