Were the ancient Phoenicians in the Americas? Was this where the gold and silver was obtained from the build the infamous Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem? The Phoenicians were well known for the ability to navigate the high seas and that is not a matter of question. In fact, they were renowned for this ability throughout the ancient world. There is even archaeological evidence that these ancient seafarers used sophisticated instruments for navigation on the waters and that they had a very large fleet of ships. These ships were not some primitive form of dugout but well built and sophisticated vessels some of which could carry over 500 people! These facts alone speak to the greatness of Phoenician shipping.
Artistic depiction of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem
We know that in the 10th century BC suddenly huge amounts of gold and silver found their way to Jerusalem and that during that time Israel’s King Solomon “made silver to be in Jerusalem as stones for abundance.” At least that is what the Bible says in the book of 1 Kings 10:27. But could it be true? Did King Solomon ever exist?
Solomon reportedly had at his disposal a navy from Tarshish and Hiram and once every 3 years the navy of Tarshish brought gold and silver, ivory and apes, and PEACOCKS to Jerusalem. Peacocks are significant here because without a doubt they could have only come from Southeast Asia and that is proof that the Phoenicians sailed to SE Asia to obtain them or, at least, they had contacts with people in SE Asia who provided them with the peacocks. The Phoenicians also brought apes to Jerusalem and those apes could have been large gorillas or monkeys of varied sizes. The must have obtained them from central Africa and/or South or Central America. Again, proof that the Phoenicians had contact with a wide range of people in the world. Continue Reading
There is a pretty good article on the Ancient Origins sight analyzing the Patterson film of Bigfoot taken in the 1960s (see link below). That said I’m now going to go out on a limb for Bigfoot. Frankly, I believe this creature is very REAL. In fact I KNOW it is real! The reason I know that is because I’ve seen these creatures on more than one occasion and have spent some time observing them in the wilds. I’ve also seen some of the footprints and shelters left behind by these creatures on more than one occasion. Sound crazy? Well I no longer care what the so called “experts” in academia think! With all of the sightings, photos, and films of these creatures that people have taken not all of them can be wrong and not all of them can be identification.

The PROBLEM in American academia is MOST anthropologists don’t get any further out in the field than their own desks! Just how do these people expect to see a Bigfoot with their own eyes while sitting behind their desks??? American anthropologists need to get out in the field and observe for themselves.
When it comes to bigfoot’s foot prints I admit some are outright fakes but some are not. With the ones that are not you can see the contours of the feet which would be pretty hard to fake with a plywood cutout pressed into the soft ground. When it comes to the Patterson film I admit that many years ago when I first saw the film I too passed it off as a hoax. “A man dressed in a gorilla suit,” I said at the time. Continue Reading
Egypt’s Great Pyramid on 19th Century Stereopticon card photo.
Researchers using a new technology known as Muon Radiography have found a hidden chamber inside the Great Pyramid at Giza. It appears to be 100 ft long and it sits high above the Grand Gallery at about the height of the King’s Chamber. It appears to have the same dimensions as the Great Gallery itself.
Egypt’s Bent Pyramid
For lack of a better name at present the new chamber is being called “ScanPyramids Big Void” or simply the “Big Void.” Muon Radiography uses imaging techniques to perform deep scans inside structures and it is relatively new. The same technology was used on Egypt’s Bent Pyramid in 2015. Hidden chambers were also found in the Bent Pyramid in May of 2016. And also in 2016 an unknown void was also found near the entrance to the Great Pyramid on the north face of the structure. Continue Reading
Tianyuan Man fossil remains, China
An analysis of an ancient Chinese fossil known as “Tianyuan Man” dated at 40 kyr has revealed some surprising findings. We’ve known that this fossil is closely related to modern Asians, or so we thought. However, recent analysis of the fossils yielded a surprise no one, almost, was expecting and that is that a 35 kyr fossil found in Belgium (GoyetQ116-1) thought to be closely related to ancient Europeans shares some genetic similarities to Tianyuan Man and these similarities are NOT shared by other ancient European remains. Additionally, the analysis showed that some Native American populations from South America appear to have a genetic connection with Tianyuan Man! BTW Tianyuan Man was a Homo Sapiens species.
What is beginning to appear is that the population that crossed into the Americas about 20 kya was NOT one single migration or time period but several and at least one of these groups had genetic ties to ancestors that contributed DNA to modern Papuan and Onge people. There appears to be no trace of this connection in present day East Asians or Siberians, however and unlike these two present day populations Tianyuan Man appears to have genetic similarities to some native South American populations!
What this newest analysis does is confirms, directly, that multiple ancestries in Native Americans were all from populations originating in mainland Asia and it seems to indicate that the migrations from Asia to the Americas happened around 20 kya or more. However, Tianyuan Man is at least twice that age and this means that the populations that migrated into the Americas were diverse and those diversities must have existed for at least 40,000 years.

Let me be honest here and say that some so called “science” I take with a grain of salt. The latest example come from a new study put out by the University of Portsmouth claiming that our earliest known human ancestor is a prehistoric rat. Researchers at U of P claim they’ve worked out the evolution connecting these prehistoric rats to modern humans. Frankly, I’d like to see the details and decide for myself as I find this study a little preposterous, frankly. So for the time being I’ll take the opposition corner to this study until I see their research for myself. Sorry, but in this day and age in “science” where any old claim seems to fly I’m skeptical of this one. At this point I think the guy who claims we came from pigs has more proof that the U of P that we came from rats. 🙂
Below are some quotes from the article at the link below regarding global cooling. The so called “experts” have prepared us for the WRONG thing folks! If it does indeed turn out to be global cooling we are going to see human death on a scale never imagined. In fact, I predict that the dawn of another Ice Age (not a “mini” one) will put humans in a mass extinction event! See the article link below….
“As global temperatures, after a short spurt at the end of the last century, have already been showing stagnation or cooling over the last nineteen years or more, the world should now fear the real and detrimental effects of cooling, rather than being hysterical about limited, beneficial or probably now non-existent further warming.
Warmer times are times of success and prosperity for man-kind and for the biosphere. For example during the Roman warm period the climate was warmer and wetter so that the Northern Sahara was the breadbasket of the Roman empire.
But the coming end of the present Holocene interglacial will eventually again result in a mile high ice sheet over much of the Northern hemisphere. Continue Reading
Another Death Blow to the Out of Africa Theory!!
As I’ve said many times before, “What we thought was…was NOT. And what we thought was not….. WAS.” And when it comes to the story of human evolution this appears to be even more so than we have thought. I say this because a MAJOR DISCOVERY has now been revealed in Germany. Fossil teeth were found in Western Germany about a year ago and the reason that the discovery wasn’t announced before now is that researchers wanted to be certain about the dating. This discovery is nothing short of SENSATIONAL! In fact, you might even call it SPECTACULAR!! The teeth have been dated at 9.7 myr (million years old).
9.7 mya fossil teeth found in Germany 2017
To put this into perspective let me remind you of the fossil footprints found on the island of Crete a month ago Those footprints have been dated back to 5.7 mya. That puts these footprints in the realm of existence of Ardipithecus and Australopithecus. But they were not supposed to be in Crete but Africa according to the dying Out of Africa theory which is OBVIOUSLY WRONG! Yet, there they were on the island of Crete for the whole world to see! Many researchers just couldn’t believe the find because what it proved was that our earliest ancient human ancestors were wondering around Europe at the same time or maybe even EARLIER than they were in Africa! These footprints and other finds over the last few years have put the OOA into jeopardy and with the newest find in Germany the OOA now is most certainly WRONG! Continue Reading
