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.”
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!
