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
Below is a comment from a reader that I’ve decided to make into a post. I will enter my comments in brackets throughout the post.— Peron
My family and I lived in Northern Arizona in the early 1970s. My grandfather, father, and uncles were all avid hunters so they knew the area well and they knew what kind of wildlife were in those woods and what kind was not. Or not supposed to be.
I was about 13 years old and my younger brother was about 12. We went out turkey hunting with our grandfather early one morning. Not long after sunrise we were going down a dirt road when we spotted some turkey going up a hill. We stopped, got out, and proceeded to try to get one. The turkeys didn’t panic or anything and slowly continued moving up the hill as we followed. My grandfather wanted the big tom turkey and, oddly, we passed by several hens who didn’t seem alarmed at all. I thought this was kind of strange.
[I’ve been able to get pretty close to turkeys but typically they become alarmed very quickly and take off.]
The tom turkey went out of sight near the top of the hill so we never got him and, of course, the hens followed. We decided to search the top of the hill to see if we could locate them again but we never found them. In fact, we never even heard them on top of the hill which was another odd thing because as they were moving up the hill they were pretty noisy. Continue Reading
As I’ve stated on this blog many times before I have no doubt that modern humans interbred with the Neanderthals more than we think. Recent studies have shown that some of the Neanderthal genes within us mods contribute to our immunity and to diseases. Now new studies are showing that Neanderthal genes contribute to other modern human characteristics such as our hair color, eye color, skin tone, sleep habits, mood, and even a person’s smoking status! In fact, what we are finding is that Neanderthal genes play a significant role in modern humans outside of Africa!
In terms of skin tone researchers have found that Neanderthal alleles contribute to light skin tone while other Neanderthal alleles contribute to darker skin tones and the same is true of skin colors. This find kind of shocked researchers because what the suggest is that Neanderthals varied in their hair color and skin tone. No they weren’t all red headed, sorry.
When modern humans arrived in Eurasia over 100 kya the Neanderthals were already well established there and had been for thousands of years or longer. They were most likely very well adapted to those climates and environments moreso than our newly arriving ancestors were. Continue Reading
