The old civilization of Europa

by Emil Silvestru

In Europa the Basque people have the highest number of (28%) blood type 0 whit Rh negative individuals; the lowest number is present in the Lapps and Finnish: 5%. Nobody really knows why, and yet this is very important for the oldest people in Europe.

In the east, in the Georgian population, the blood type 0 with Rh negative is also high.

There is also a small community in Romania, in the Apuseni  Mountains (a mountain range in the West of Transylvania). The people known as “moț” (“motz” in English). There is a mystery regarding the origin of name “moț” in Romanian, but the “moț” exist only in a particular area. It is interesting that these people are predominantly blood type 0 but in Romania there is now clear data regarding percentage of Rh negative. However, what I found is that in France (in the Basque County), there is a town named Saint-Pée-sur-Nivelle Amotz! In the Basque language “amotz” means “short” and the people of Basques are indeed shorter, just as the moț  (in Transylvania) are shorter! Of course this could be just coincidence…

The languages of the Basque and the Georgians are similar and unique, and much older that the Indo-European languages. Even today, in 2015 there is still a debate about the Basque and Georgian languages.
I believe that the old European civilization was started at the end of the Mesolithic age (see my previous note – EMIL 5). The last glaciation was still ongoing in Europa and the Black Sea was cut off from the Mediterranean Sea. About the Black Sea there is still a debate today: was there a big flood or not? Ryan and Pitman’s hypothesis ( believe there was a flood (Figure 1):


and that around 7600 year ago, the Mediterranean Sea flooded the Black Sea through the Bosphorus gorge.
Other scientists don’t believe there was any flood at all.

In an article written some time ago (, I argue that the Black Sea out-flooded toward the Mediterranean Sea and not the other way around.

Going back to Dr. Gimbutas’ findings (my note Emil 6), what actually happened was that the last Ice Age started to melt quickly (at the end of Mesolithic age) and (see my note Emil 5) a part of the people gradually wanted to go to the west of Europa:

I suggest that the Georgian people, possibly the motz people and the Basque people are still here as the only survivors of the old civilization.

After the Flood, 4 couples remained on the planet and started populating the Earth again: Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth. Europa and Asia became later the most populated areas in the world and this all started with Japheth.  Also, the fact that the first writing was in Transylvania (see my previous post- Emil 6) is significant, because it means that this is the forefather of Japheth, and that Noah was already writing and reading in just one language.

Romania alphabet was older than Summer

Romanians had writing 2000 years before the Sumerians and Egyptians did!  

by Emil Silvestru

Dr. Marija Gimbutas (1921 -1994) was a Lithuanian-American archaeologist, specialized in Proto-Indo-European or “Old  Europa” culture. Gimbutas  wrote many books, but one which I believe is very important is “Civilization of the Goddess – the World of Old Europe” (Harper, San Francisco, 1991, 529 pages).


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Fig. 1

At that time (of the Neolithic age, it seems there were no wars), the great Goddess had been benevolent, and people were trading actively in many places in Europe.

Gimbutas’ main interest was the area of the Carpathian Mountains, the Peninsula of Italy and the Aegean Region, between 6,500 until 3,500 BC when, according to Gimbutas and many others, agriculture started. In fact it is now clear that before that, in the Mesolithic era (before 10,000 BC) there was already plenty of agriculture (see my previous posting).

A year ago, in Romania (in the province of Transylvania) a large settlement was found, dating at least 8,000 years ago. ( Back in 1961, in the same area (the village of Turdaș in Transylvania), the Romanian archaeologist Nicolae Vlessa discovered 3 tablets known as the Tărtăria Tablets. The tablets show the oldest writing in the world (


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Fig. 2

Many archaeologists believed that the Tărtăria tablets were much older, but now, after the large settlement (more than 300 hectare) was found, the Tărtăria tablets  are clearly from the same time period as the settlement, around 6000 year old (, which is 2000 years before the Sumerian and the Egyptians started to write!

So Gimbutas was right and (remember my previous  note – Emil 5) before that, in the Mesolithic humans were skilled and lived in villages. And before that, in the Paleolithic, in Western Europe, there was the so-called Neanderthal man, living in caves and creating incredible paintings! When seeing these painting Picasso once said: “We [contemporary artists] have learned nothing!” (

Fig. 3  Cave of Lascaux

Yet the painting of Lascaux Cave (discovered in 1940) was much younger (≈ 20,000 old) compared to the painting of the Chauvet Cave (≈ 30,000 old), discovered in 1994 (

Fig. 4  Cave of Chauvet

Some scholars believe that there are some cave signs in individual sites like Chauvet. Genevieve von Petzinger, at that time a student at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada, was surprised to find that no one had brought all these records together to compare signs from different caves. She compiled a comprehensive database of all recorded cave signs from 146 sites in France, covering 25,000 years of prehistory from 35,000 to 10,000 years ago (

It is incredible how in just a few years the pre-existing neat standard chronology turned up-side-down …

Dr. Gimbutas believed that the old civilization was Proto-Indo-European, but I believe they were completely different people, with no Indo-European ancestry.

My/Our Personal Recovery

Another year of my recovery, which with the help of our heavenly Father, ever though it’s slow it is possible and sure.

I thank God for the way my recovery is unfolding. I’m reading more, I rest often and I continue writing exercises on the computer.

We go for walks in this beautiful valley and I finally feel we have time for each other. We feel very much alive. But our situation is not always easy. Flory’s dedication and her hard work throughout my recovery has worsened here back. Now it’s my turn to take care of Flory who is straggling with her spine. Surgery has been proposed to her to straight out vertebra’s L1-2 and S1. I’s sure you understand our challenges but we remain strong in our faith and gratitude.

Before America was populated

by Emil Silvestru

The standard geological time cited here does not represent my personal views.


Recently the first complete genome analysis was accomplished. The site was accidentally found when a construction worker (in Montana) found a skeleton. It was a small child (who died at only 3 years of age) and it became known as the Anzick child. Some call this a first “Adam”, the people that eventually settled in all of Americas.  It is actual “Adam 1” I believe!
According to the standard  radiocarbon dating , the small child died around 12,600 years ago. Archaeologists also believe that just 100 years later, a new period started, known as the Clovis culture. The fact that in South America (in an archaeologist site known as Monte Verde, in Chile) there were already remains about 14,500 years ago, is a bit odd, but could have happened. Some cultures simply went very quickly from the north to the south of the Americas…  All-in-all, most scientists believe that the in habitation of  the Americas started around 17,000 years ago, when there was a movement from Asia to America as the last ice age was fully “raging” (from ∼ 40,000 ya to about 10,000 ya).

For now I’ll say this is OK, but I will go back and show later that history and truth are many times not the same, as history is power: “Who controls the present, controls the past and who controls the past, controls the future.”

America nativeNew Scientist, 2014, February 15-21, p.8-10.

The first figure above also proposes that the European and Asian genome mixed together around the Mal’ta near the Lake of Baikal (in Asia). Then, a part went to Europe where there were already people –  the Neanderthal man – and there we have the incredible paintings of Chauvet Cave, in France. More over, the paintings are very old: 29,000 years old (New Scientist, 2011, April 19, p.10). Yet anthropologists believe that it was not Homo sapiens, it was the Neanderthal, a sort of “cousin”.  I am fully against this, and this is why I also believe that a big chunk of Europe and Middle East are completely ignored. The Neanderthal was completely human and even now some people clearly have Neanderthal-like skulls.

For a long time (from 1994 until about 2010) Klaus Schmidt, of the German Archaeological Institute discovered a site in Turkey, close to Syria, but the English world kept its silence. Now it is recognized as the oldest temple in the world, the site known as Göbekli Tepe. According to the weekly New Scientist magazine (2013, August 16, p. 14), the temple is at least 11,000 years old. Before  that, about 11,600 years ago,  there was a village in Wadi Faynan (in Jordan) where large communal buildings were discovered. See below (NS, 2013, August 16, p. 14). So, unlike Wikipedia, which believes that the first agriculture activities were in the Neolithic (about 9,000 years ago), we see that in the Mesolithic (from 20,000 to 9,500 years ago) there was already agriculture! The fact that the Jordan and Turkey sites existed more than 7,500 years before the Sumner and Egypt civilizations started, is very unsettling and Western architecture is very troubled about this.

Next time I will try to trouble it even more!



October 2015

The Fall for me as well…
by Emil Silvestru

It is autumn again and around the Harrison Lake the leaves are turning yellow, red and brown. Still there is no frost. Although it is the 22nd of October 2015 having no frost means the winter will be probably be harsh. For the last several years several in British Columbia, around 15 of October the temperature plummeted to -10º C for about 10 days and then came back to above 0º C until the end of December. Well, we will see if it will happen again or not!

What I really like to remember is my young days of caving and how difficult it was to go in the mountains of Romania at the time of Communism. We had no cars so we had to go with trains and buses and then go for many kilometers on foot, with heavy rucksack of gear and tent and food. Many time all we had was a big chunk of pure lard with some bread and onion… Nevertheless we where doing this because there were more the 6,000 cave surveys in Romania at that time (the 1970s). I do not know how many more new caves have been found but almost certainly above 7,000.

Ever since my family and I arrived in BC (2005), we always went to Vancouver Island whenever we could, at least once every year. Well, except in 2012 when I had my stroke and Flory was very focused to have my physical training back to normal, and yes, she succeed 100%! Next year, in 2016 (if I am still here…)  it will be 50 years since I started caving, but Flory is the first that to have her own cave in Canada: Flory’s Cave (Vancouver Island) where she found an interesting blue mineral.





My News & Letter

IMG_6510At the end of this year (2014) also important year in my recovery, I would like to update you a little on my progress.

When it happened 2.5 years ago, my mind was ‘foggy’, my balance was flimsy and I had aphasia (I could not speak, read and write). Flory, my angel and wife started immediately to train me (she is a professional physiotherapist ) and in about 2 months my body was good.

As some still remember, about 2 hours after I ‘came back’ there was just a few words. Certainly, with God, with prayers, hope and working hard, improvement is evident, slowly but surely. Several doctors said that my improvement will be for one or maybe two years and than it will probably stay always the same. Yet doctor Jill Bolte Taylor (PhD in neuroanatomist at Harvard Medical School) had a stroke back in 1996 (at 37 of age).Her left hemisphere was damaged and underwent a major brain surgery three weeks later. She had 8 long years to recover and she is now back in university. You can see her TedTalk story here

I know that every single human is different, some come back better, some less. Age, health, motivation, education levels are all very important as well. Above all,to me, God was and is the most important and because of that I will not stop to exercise and to have hope and faith.

Financially things are difficult as the only income I have is through my disability status, but I am hoping that I will be able to work in the future before my pension years.

For all of you who read my letter, thank you for understanding, prayers and help. My other email is   ( my is stopped).


I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made












In this past while my wife and I have been offering prayers of gratitude to the Lord for the faith, strength, patience, perseverance and hope that He has given me throughout this time of my recovery.

How amazing are the love and blessings I have received from God, my wife, my children and all of you who have been there for me, encouraged me and kept my in your prayers this whole time.
I have been filled with a calm and peace that I continue to carry through this slow yet constant healing process.

Physically I am fine, although it did take more than a year for the doctors to find the right medication in order  to stabilize my heart (there have been three episodes of extremely high blood pressure, even if I had lost over 80 pounds).
My memory is recovered completely, my speaking is improving daily and I have started to write on the computer and to make new Keynote presentations.

Please hold me in your prayers so I may continue to serve the Lord our God, as I know deep inside my heart that I have many more things to do in His service.

Hugs and blessings to all of you who have crossed my path and have learned new things, or have furthered their already existing knowledge about how wonderful God’s creation is!

I know that you can join me in saying: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139, v14)

I praise you Lord for taking care of me and continuously guiding me on the path you laid in front of me!


Discovering music in caves

Being a cave-man all my life, one time I discovered a very old musical instrument, I named the “rocklophone” (not xylophone).

Inside a cave, sometimes perfect crystals can produce musical notes.Being a geologist and being very curious if a crystal can move,

I lightly hit these crystals with the tip of my fingers and to my surprise not only did they move, but they also produced musical notes.

Later a musician friend from France and I recorded these “celestial” sounding crystals as a musical experiment.

Listen by Emil

IMG_2014 copy 2Listen. Try to speak only if it is good for others. All my life I spoke a lot but now it’ll be different. I started to write and read a bit. It is like starting all over again, but very slow. As a man it seems a lot, for God is nothing really! How about for ever?  So I will listen more and I’ll try to write more.

Spring time 2013


Many of us know that all things happen in God’s time. It is in this time we are happy to be and recognize he knows much better what is good for us. We are so great greatfull for the step by step recovery. There is a good physical recovery, and the delicate part, reading and writing, is still worked on. Now more than ever we ask for your support and prayers, as Emil so immensely wishes to return to working for God.

It is now a year since Emil’s stroke. We trust that this year his recovery will be complete.

Thanks to all of you that have been by our side through this time of trials.

Flory Silvestru
