An article appearing in “Science” on 24 April 2018 reports on new evidence concerning just when early humans began taking to the sea. The article suggests that Stone Age people may have indeed voyaged the Mediterranean Sea long before we thought possible.
A decade ago researchers found stone tools on the Island of Crete that dated back to at least 130,000 years and most archaeologists at the time were nothing short of stunned! Many were skeptical and remain so even today. However, over the past decade researchers at the site have built a rather convincing case for ancient seafaring during the Stone Age! And that’s not all because that evidence strongly suggests the possibility that Neanderthals were the sailors!!
I’ve blogged about this subject before postulating that seafaring was even undertaken by Homo erectus which I still hold to. That evidence suggesting Neanderthals were also seafarers does NOT surprise me in the least. In fact, I would expect it to be so!
What this newest evidence suggests is that seafaring predates modern humans both on the cognitive level and the technology level. Prior to this evidence the earliest seafarers were assumed to be from the Bronze Age. The Bronze Age ran from around 3300 to 1200 BC in the Near East and South Asia, and from around 3222 to 300 BC in Europe and East Asia. In contrast, the Stone Age lasted about 3.4 million years ending sometime between 8700 BCE and 2000 BCE. Continue Reading
800,000 years ago ancestors of Homo erectus were the dominate ancient human ancestor species on the planet. Mainstream science believes H. erectus first came out of Africa and migrated into the Levant and then spread across Asia, Europe, and the Far East (but never in the Americas of course). So is this true or is this some poppycock theory designed to hide the true origins of humanity today? Why do I ask such a question? Because there is apparent evidence that contradicts this theory about H. erectus and all those before them and, for that matter, it contradicts the entire theory of human evolution!
China’s Ming Dynasty & Lady Dai
In 2011 road workers in China uncovered a tomb from the Ming Dynasty period (700 years ago) near Taizhou in Eastern China. Inside the coffin archaeologist found layers of silk and linen covered in some unknown brown liquid and beneath these linens the found the remains of a woman. The remains were almost perfectly intact and well-preserved. Body, hair, skin, clothing, and jewelry we well-preserved and even her eyebrows and eyelashes were perfectly preserved! Researchers still don’t know what the brown liquid was but some have speculated that it may have been ground water that seeped into the coffin at some point. They don’t know what the brown liquid was but it may have been ground water? You mean they can’t identify groundwater????
Remains of Lady Dai, China
Ok nothing really mysterious about this find but it’s interesting nevertheless and obviously the Ming Dynasty had some highly skillful burial and preservation techniques. But then there is Lady Dai…………. Lady Dai is also known as Xin Zhui and the Marquise of Dai. Here ASTOUNDING remains were first found in 1971. She was the wife of Li Cang the Marquis of Dai during the Western Han Dynasty. Her tomb was discovered inside a hill in Hunan, China. The remains along with several artifacts and documents are now in the care of the Hunan Museum. The remains of Lady Dai are so exceptionally preserved that it is nothing short of astounding!

I must admit that I’ve had to read the article at the below link a couple of times just to make sure it wasn’t some sort of April Fool’s joke but apparently it is real. Professor Sarah Ensor of the University of Michigan published and article in an academic article recently advocating humans should establish erotic relationships with plants! Yep you read that right. A university professor advocating humans and plants should have sexual relationships!
Ensor’s article explores “ecosexuality” which is a term referring to sexual relationships between humans and plants. She’s not alone in her assertion either btw. Advocates in the field argue that nature needs to be treated with love and, apparently, in Ensor’s case with erotic love. Advocates believe humans should “physically make love to the Earth.” Seriously? Does anyone besides me think this is……odd?
Professor Ensor is an English professor. She and others advocate humans should lick trees, roll around in the mud, and “engage in sexual acts with elements of nature.” WTH? They also advocate talking to nature erotically. Ensor and others are now also advocating that environmental spaces must welcome queer and polymorphous sexual identities which Sigmund Freud defined as the ability to receive sexual gratification from activities that are not normally associated with being sexual.
So this is where human evolution is leading us? Human/plant sex? The two are not even sexually compatible! To me this is all nonsense and even mentally ill. And we should make room for these people in our nature places so they can carry out their depravity?? What in the hell is wrong with the human species? This is NOT evolution but it sure as hell is looking more and more like devolution down a road we’ve not been down at all or in a long, long while! And Professor Ensor is a shining example of the lunacy in academia today IMO. And here’s the scary thing…..the Breitbart article says this “ecosexuality movement” is “growing in America.” Well of course it is because anything and everything outside of the historical normal today seems to be acceptable no matter how depraved it is!
Sex with plants OMG!! …….. hmmmm come to think of it………that rose bush I have growing outside is starting to look pretty good to me (wink, wink) ………….LMAO.
GOD HELP US ALL!!
See the article at:
Evidence of the world’s largest dinosaur has been found in Scotland. The evidence comes in the form of footprints along with dozens of 170 myr fossil remains belonging to Sauropods found in a muddy lagoon on the Isle of Skye.
170 myr track from Scotland
These creatures were about 49 feet long and weighed more than 10 tons. Footprints from Theropods have also been found at the same location. These are the oldest dinosaur fossil remains found in Scotland thus far. Evidence from the Middle Jurassic period is rare so these finds are highly important to researchers. The finds also add more evidence that dinosaurs on the Isle of Skye were in fact there!
