fair enough, so when they say "snakes" we have to take them literally and when they say "star people" we should be consistent, no?
There's evidence for snakes...kinda tough to write them off as folk tales to explain a complex environment in a world lacking scientific reasoning.


so we shouldn't be consistent? final answer?
How so? You seriously want to equate evidence for existence of snakes with that of 'star people'? Oh my...you're on your own there.


you're saying they went through all that trouble to build the structures and spread the word around vast distances that snakes was good eatin? How are you the expert on what was going on inside these peoples' heads not even to mention how the idea got spread around and so pervasively. You can't tell me THAT many people were gaga over snakes. Wouldn't you expect a little more diversity in the zoological symbolism?

Animal totems are one thing...and fairly ubiquitous. I would drew your attention to many of the avatars used on ATS. I can't quite see how that proves 'star people' are real. By your reasoning, it would seem to follow that Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy exist, based upon the popular mythology.

Sometimes it's just a symbol, eh?

To answer your original question ........

Academics and researchers lie or not give full disclosure out of fear. They are essentially grant bludgers who can not afford to "go outside the norm " . A proposed study must be very close to a pre-existing study so citations can be made.

Failing this, means no funding. Remember unless you have private funding, it is a hard game to play to keep employed and relevant.


Quite a few others will protect their "expert" status at all costs. Even the truth.


Eg...... You spent your whole life mapping all stars you can see with the naked eye. How much hate would you rain down on the guy trying to invent the telescope ?


99.9999% of humans do not like change.

Nonsense. If that were true, there would be no innovation in academe. Proof that there is exists all around you. I'm betting I know more academics than you do, and I sure know more archaeologists than you do, so I figure I'm quite qualified to call you on this one.

Those 'giant tales' of late 19th century America have a whole lot more to do with
a) Selling newspapers;
b) Justifying screwing Native Americans out of their lands &
c) Trying to account for North America and its original inhabitants, which are inconveniently not accounted for in the Bible
...than anything resembling either truth or science. Just so's ya know, eh?



Absolutely ... one also forgets, that when the colonialists arrived in America. They had a reason to claim their right on the land, and one was to forge evidence of, America being Vinland, as in the Scandinavian settler. That forged Viking evidence all over the place.

Although the giant stuff, may have some merit to it ... it is more related to people trying to disprove that the native American, being the "right inhabitant", of the land. That is, they had predecessors there ... and they originate from Africa, just like you and me. Therefore, their "right" is none. Actually, this argument is used quite often ... although it is rarely voiced openly in public. And not just when native americans are concerned.

One of the best examples, of forgery in America ... is "book of mormon". This is how deeply rooted, the need for forgery goes ... in fact, one should be very sceptical about all history modern or not ...

I live right next to Kawehno:ke, and would love to know more about the Akwesasne legends!

I have been to the Caddo mounds in E.Texas a few times and they are apparently burial mounds, i wonder if they would find any large skeletons among these remains as well.

History is written by the winners. Consider this, what a failure we would look like, if they proved we had been on this planet and nearly wiped out 5 times... Over and over we go on this cycle. The Maya say this is the 5th time of man on the planet. Yet, we are supposed to believe in Bibles that say we have only been here 6000 years. When clearly the evidence points to much more.
