The esteemed Paleoanthropologist Louis Leakey, as I’ve noted many times, left his work in Africa and came to America fully expecting to find evidence of prehistoric humans just as he’d found much evidence for in East Africa. When Leakey got to America he went to the Calico Hills in California and died soon after without finding any fossil remains of archaic hominids. However, a rich haul of artifacts were discovered at the Calico Hills site and, in fact, the number of stone artifacts is rather astounding. But mainstream geologists simply pass it off saying these “artifacts” are “geofacts,” that is, products of nature that only resemble hominid made artifacts. Of course this is a great matter of debate!
The large number of stone artifacts found at the Calico Hills site numbers in the thousands but Calico Hills does NOT stand alone! Large numbers of stone artifacts can also be found in Libya laying on top of the ground! In fact, these stone artifacts literally carpet the ground in Libya, Egypt, and elsewhere.
Researchers who have worked in southern Libya take surveys from hundreds of plots 1 to 2 meters square. Tens of thousands of artifacts are found in these plots! In fact, they estimate that as many as 250,000 stone artifacts can be found per square Kilometer! And this is only what is found on the surface! Now that is rather astounding isn’t it? Consider that the population of ancient human ancestors was nowhere near our present population of almost 7 billion. In fact, when we look back at ancient human ancestors we are lucky if the population even numbered in the millions! My point is this. If ancient populations were relatively low then how do we explain these amazing amount of artifacts strewn across the Libyan southern desert (and Egypt et al as well)? This would suggest that our ancient ancestors spent most of their time making stone tools don’t you think? That would leave little time for hunting and gathering so I wonder when they found time to eat, hunt, fish, or perform other activities necessary for their survival? Continue Reading
