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).

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. (http://www.romania-insider.com/discovery-of-8000-year-old-settlement-in-romania-provides-evidence-of-first-neolithic-farmers-in-the-region/62909/) 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 (http://myworldjourneys.com/tag/tartaria-tablets/).

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 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 (http://www.prehistory.it/ftp/tartaria_tablets/tartaria_tablets_12.htm), 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!” (http://www.artstudio.org/houston-museum-of-natural-science-more-than-grafitti/).

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 (http://popular-archaeology.com/issue/september-2011/article/prehistoric-cave-paintings-of-horses-were-spot-on-say-scientists).

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 (www.newscientist.com/article/mg20527481.200-the-writing-on-the-cave-wall.html#.UynvPl7D66B).

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.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Emil

  1. Hi Emil, I’m glad you are getting better and better. I’m often thinking about you both. Both the Summernian and Romanian civilizations are post-Flood, and most likely post-Babel. As such are would be less than about 4500 years old (2500 BC). As always, the problems with these claims are the dates that are assigned. God bless you. Tas Walker
