There now comes a highly disturbing report out of the Javari Valley near the Peruvian border in Brazil. That valley is the second largest indigenous reserve in Brazil and tribes in that area are sometimes referred to as “lost tribes.” Reports indicate that gold miners slaughtered and chopped up some of the indigenous people recently and threw their mutilated bodies into a river….not once….but TWICE! The reason? The miners want control of the land to get at the gold!!
Brazilian police are said to be investigating the claim that 10 tribesmen belonging to remote Amazonian people were hacked to death after a complaint was filed with Brazilian prosecutors following an incident in which some of the miners involved in the slaughter bragged about the killings during a drinking bout in a local bar. But this is not the first such incident! Since the beginning of 2017 more than 50 tribesmen have been killed in Brazil in the first six months! Their lands are known to be rich in gold deposits and the miners want it at ANY cost, apparently.
In the bar the miners were showing off a hand-carved paddle that they claimed they took from one of the tribes. The talk in the bar was apparently cruel and laced with all sorts of nasty and prejudice language. And, the killer miners even bragged about cutting up the bodies and throwing them in the river! In a futile effort to attempt to justify their slaughter the miners told bar patrons that they “had to kill them or be killed.” Apparently, the killings happened just last month. Prosecutor Pablo Luz de Beltrand is heading the investigation. He told reporters that this is the second such investigation he’s led this year. The first centered around several killings of tribesmen in the same area back in February.
The populations of these remote tribes are very small to begin with and “Survival International” which is an indigenous rights group says the killings may have eliminated a significant number of the small populations. In 2016 there were 61 KNOWN killings of tribesmen and as of the end of July of this year there have been at least 50 killings. Continue Reading
For a long time now I’ve been toying with an idea in my head concerning the growing violence we see in human society, especially in American society. Maybe it’s just me but that violence seems to be becoming more and more violent and depraved as just when you’ve thought you’ve heard it all someone commits an even more violent and depraved act keeping us shocked by it all. Here’s what I’ve been pondering…….
Whether you believe in the Theory of Evolution per Darwin or whether you believe in the Theory of Hybridization one thing is clear. Modern people have the blood of Homo erectus running through their veins along with some of their genes to varying amounts, meaning, some more than others. According to Evolutionary Theory H. erectus was the first ancient human ancestor (AHA) to walk upright and was the first to use fire among other things. H. erectus was a hunter and if you believe evolutionary theory this was the first hominid species to migrate out of Africa and conquer the world all the way from Europe to the Far East. But, the alternative to evolutionary theory is the hybridization theory.
The hybridization theory postulates the several species (breeds, races) of AHA coexisted and interbred. Thus, the offspring were hybrids of mixed blood and mixed genes. Anthropologist and author Dr Susan Martinez is one that holds to this hybridization theory which I tend to agree with primarily because of something called “Occam’s Razor.”
Occam’s Razor (or law) says that when two or more theories are presented the one with the LEAST assumptions should be selected. In my mind the hybridization theory has less assumptions than current evolutionary theory and that’s why I tend to lean towards the former.
Getting back to H. erectus Dr Martinez refers to them as “Druks.” These Druks, she says, were the third race who came to be as a result of the “little people” (H. sapien pygmaeus” and the Ardipithicines whom she calls “Ardi.” The little people were the first to have wisdom and spirits while Ardi was a manimal, a true APE MAN without spirit and without wisdom. The Little People were forbidden to interbreed with the Ardi species but they did so anyway and the result was a hybrid species known as the “Druks” (ie: H. erectus).
These Druks that Dr Martinez presents in her book entitled “The Mysterious Species of Hybrid Man” were hunters and WARRIORS. They were “giants” to the little people who only stood about 4 feet tall. Some of these Druks stood over 6 feet tall. In essence they were part human and part animal (ape). They were prone to violence and their behavior was very crude as a result of their being part human and part animal (manimals) They were known as the “ground people” and “pit dwellers” by the little people (whom Dr Martinez calls “Ihins”). They were also known as the “barbarian hordes.” Continue Reading
