I believe that every Astrological Age has been celebrated by worshiping the animal that reprecented it since very ancient times.
The Age of Leo happends every 25,920 years and lasts for about 2,500 years. The last Age of Leo was between 10,500-8,000 BC. 40,000 years ago the Age of Leo would have occurred between 36,420-33,920 BC.

Actually Harte, Refer to the Oxford translations of the Sumerian cuneiform tablets to see that the Kings List referred to is real and the Chronologies are accurate. The Sumerians were accurate recorders of time and years. There was no confusion for them about the length of a Year. No one is making this stuff up. Look for yourself:
433,000 years of Annunaki on Earth (link)
Edit: 40,000 years is interesting but not entirely shocking. That same admiration would be primal in a human. I would expect that it would extend to the earliest traces of human DNA. But, I sometimes wonder how reliable carbon dating methods are especially when used on stone objects.edit on 3/24/2014 by mantisfortress because: (no reason given)
His work clearly shows that the Great Sphinx (Egypt) is at least 7000 years old, but could be much, much older. The only thing he can say with any certainty is the minimum age of the Great Sphinx. Not the exact age.
The fact you spent 20 years and examined ALL possible answers (whilst applying a mind set placed upon you by a protestant work ethic) speaks for itself.
After all that research what are your answers to the below questions:
If Peoples in South America were doing substances in the past; what evidence do you have to suggest this didnt take place elsewhere given the repeated social patterns we see in humans from different times/locales throughout history (Body Art, Art, Song, Ceremony, Worship etc) across all other facets of behavior?
I still want to know: Do you drink and do you describe yourself and all other "socially acceptable drug users" as "Bums"?
As far as intelligence goes there is even some merit to the idea that writing could have lowered it - think of the difference, people used to memorize whole epics by word of mouth only.
I don't know if anyone else brought this up, but could this statue be a depiction of what Neanderthals actually looked like?
'Manimals' are common shamanist themes and occur across many cultures. That's a portable piece of stone age art made by a hunter gatherer. Not some relic of a lost civilisation. All the tech from sites of that age are stone age, made of stone of bone and ivory. Nothing 'lost tech' about it at all.
There are some who believe that the "face on Mars" is representative of a sphinx-like monument. Hoagland claims that one half of the face is simian, the other half lion, and when combined appear to be like modern man. I don't necessarily agree with that theory, but it certainly does make one think.
If they were so precise and meticulous why then is there only one copy of the kings list and only from the middle Bronze Age? It is far more likely that the kings list was a creation who's purpose was to legitimize Isin's claims to the throne over the claims of Larsa than it is an actual historical record dating back several hundred millennia
