Last night I watched a fascinating presentation on Youtube by father and son team Steven and Evan Strong on evidence for an Australian Aboriginal written language. It may be viewed here:
What really grabbed my attention was when a comparison was made between a stone found in one of the Bosnian pyramids with the Ros Stones found in Australia. A few years back my family and I visited the Bosnian Pyramids and actually stayed half way up one, above the town of Vysoke.
But I knew I’d seen such markings before. In fact, if one digs a little, one will discover that very similar markings may be found all around the globe, and all with prehistoric origin. An almost identical carving as that shown in the Australian astronomical stone was discovered on a piece of ochre in Blombos Cave, South Africa, and dated to more than 70,000 years old.
Due to the age of some of these line or scratch carvings and paintings, it’s extremely unlikely that modern humans, Homo sapiens sapiens, were their creators. A recent discovery in Gorham’s Cave in Gibraltar, dated at more than 64,000 years old, has been identified as having been made by Neanderthals.
The oldest known ‘human’ carving has been dated at c.100,000 years old and it comes from Klasies River Cave, South Africa.
There’s definitely a pattern forming here, pun intended.
I’m not a fan of the standard Out-of-Africa theory, as it really doesn’t explain how we have had ‘cousin’ hominins wandering around simultaneously to ourselves, supposedly with common ancestors but whose genes weren’t continued in the modern African gene pool. The recent discovery of the Denisovans (and according to the latest findings regarding Chinese DNA, there were two sets of them) adds more intrigue to our origins – especially as we can see that even they inherited traits from a species which we have no clue about. It’s not just their utterly unique teeth that make me want to go hmmm….
Speaking about the Chinese, they too have a stone which bears an incredibly similar marking system to those featured above. It’s been dated at roughly 30,000 years old – which would place it nicely among the Denisovans (or the Neanderthals):
And several miles north of Laytonville, North California, in Wailakki tribal lands, there is a large rock which has been carved on for multiple generations:
As Steven Strong noted in his presentation, the similarities to Ogham Script are extremely noticeable. Perhaps this ancient line writing was its precursor? The Irish even state that they believe Ogham to have come from the Middle East at an indeterminate date – perhaps following the Bottleneck?
The major problem with truly discovering human origins is that the sciences of anthropology and archaeology are riddled with presumed political correctness and Victorian empiricism – and supported by Missing Links. There’s a reason why OOPARTS (out of place artifacts) used to make the front page of the newspapers one hundred years ago and now they either disappear (Smithsonian, anyone?) or are immediately labelled a hoax. What that reason is I still haven’t fathomed.
There are so many flaws to what is taught as fact, especially dating systems. Homo erectus supposedly went extinct 300,000 years ago but the Ngandong skull finds in Java, Indonesia showed that it survived until 50-27,000 years ago (although modern science is trying to push this back to 150,000 years…). Homo floresiensis, the Hobbit, whose remains were found on Flores, Indonesia, was dated at 38-13,000 years ago, but science has now pushed that back to 100-60,000. This is despite locals talking about actually encountering them in the jungle (and they do seem to be very similar to Orang pendek, the cryptid apparently still extant on Sumatra, Indonesia). Modern science desperately strives to make only Homo sapiens stand out as being the only hominin capable of anything beyond grunting – despite the multitude of evidence to the contrary. We even now know Homo erectus to have been sailing around the world at approximately 700,000 years ago….
Zana, the 19th Century Russian ‘wild woman’, was found to have African DNA unlike any modern group. Her family therefore predated the 100,000 year old OOA exodus groups and somehow managed to avoid any other hominins (Neanderthals, etc) for that entire period. It’s entirely likely that she was a remnant of a pre-modern human branch. She is also presumably an Alma, cryptid hominin Yeti-type residents of the Caucasus Mountains. She only died in 1890.
Milford Wolpoff of the University of Michigan and Alan Thorne of the University of Canberra claim that all members of the genus Homo, since 2 million years ago, are basically just racial/local variants of the same Homo sapiens species. This continues the reasoning of one of the most famous paleoanthropologists, Richard E Leakey (whose book ‘Human Origins’ was a favourite of mine as a small child).
Modern science, in its bizarre eagerness to subdivide and classify even the slightest variation in hominid anatomy, whilst constantly pushing the argument that only Homo sapiens survived till the present, stumbles in its reasoning when confronted by such massive OOPARTS as the Kow Swamp skulls (Australian aboriginal, resembling Homo erectus but dated to 10,000 years ago), the belief by many that the Australopithecines were apes and not humans, the Spanish Gran Dolina Cave skull from an 11-year old MODERN human boy dated to 800,000 years ago, Turkana Boy (Homo erectus/ergaster) from 1.5 million years ago, the physiological similarities between Homo erectus skulls and several extant (often island-based) populations…
There does appear to be a great similarity between the ‘artwork’ of diverse and isolated ancient peoples (which CG Jung would have claimed stemmed from the collective unconscious), and there does appear to be major discrepancies in the official timeline presented by the Establishment regarding our species, Homo sapiens sapiens, and its ‘evolution’. There is also clearly a whitewashing underway to dismiss any sort of OOPART which might disrupt the Establishment’s status quo. It is only through the work of those who dare to not only question the established view but who also go out into the wilds to find real answers to the enigmas surrounding our mysterious past that we have any chance of learning any vague semblance of truth – people such as Michael A Cremo, Danny Vendramini, Semir Osmanagić and, of course, Steven and Evan Strong. While their answers may yet be proven incorrect, they at least open Pandora’s Box for others to make up their own minds.
Were these ancient scratch-scripts transported around the world by migrating, pre-OOA, ‘Home erectus’ groups, surviving, with later regional variations, until almost the modern age? The finding of million-year-old footprints in Norfolk, England (Homo antecessor, cough…), which places our ancestors in a location vastly removed from the Serengeti at least 800,000 years before we supposedly left it, adds weight to their having brought other cultural goodies with them on their travels. After all, if they were bright enough to have survived the 11,000 kilometre hike through harsh terrain (and large bodies of water) teeming with giant predatory creatures, why couldn’t they have been bright enough to make a few doodles en route?
However, beyond the basic ‘wrongness’ of the established timeline and the ever-increasing list of subspecies of Homo, there are clearly a few ‘Eureka’ moments in our past which no one seems to be able to satisfactorily clarify. There are certain points where we made giant leaps, both culturally and physically, often without any logical reason. If we could only find out what (or perhaps even who) was behind those momentous changes, we’d be a great deal closer to understanding just who we are, from where we come, and where we’re going.
It might also help explain why there is more genetic diversity in the modern African population than in the rest of the world combined or, far far stranger, why there is more genetic diversity among a selection of 54 chimpanzees than in continentally-divided 7 billion humans. Only the cheetah population, and their almost total lack of any genetic difference among individual members beats us on the ‘clone’ scale (read the late, great Lloyd Pye’s Intervention Theory on that one).
While there are still those brave enough to go against the army of officially endorsed debunkers and shills thrown at them, perhaps one day we will really see lux in tenebris lucet.
