What a fascinating and very interesting find. I do believe we have existed as a huge civilisation - which the bible itself confirms when it saw "the world was fully populated" so I just see dating to 6000 years for some of its followers as 'cherry picking'.

You cannot have a stone age people setting up their buildings with cosmological knowledge we are openly discovering recently. They learned about the precession of the equinoxes somehow and the most likely is very precise study over a very long period of time by the more learned in society.

We know catastrophe's suddenly happen e.g. water levels rising and inundating areas and other parts of the sea bed rising up. Perhaps its just that we simply haven't dug deep enough down to find out about our past. There are enough myths - such as Troy - which have turned out to be fact so we can only confidentially say we don't know exactly when we evolved. There are out of time artefacts from all around the world we can't explain and there is clearly a determination by some vested interest that we never do, which is a shame.

We are already altering ourselves and if we can do it today, why should not an ancient advanced civilisation have already done this in the past? No one can prove it didn't. We only found out comparatively recently about the existence of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto yet it appears the Babylonians etc knew about these planets, not to mention the Dogon and their knowledge. What we do have, oddly enough again in the bible is the tiny thread of information that we were all able to communicate with each other which was then tampered with deliberately. The view that God/s was all beneficent to us humans was not completely apparent from that act, one would also have wondered why he didn't supply us with knives and forks etc rather than have us start at the bottom of evolution which those marks, if made by humans is likely to infer?

There was another thread that tells about evidence of the creation of human tools roughly around the same time period as this animal bone.

I'm guessing it's humans who butchered animals. Which made me think What if there is an ancient advanced human civilization that got bombed back to stone age a long time ago?


The issue with that is that Humans (Homo sapiens) only emerged 1.8-0.2 million years ago. So that would be a HUGE stretch to say it was Humans. The article suggests it could have been the early species within the Homo genus itself that was a likely cause.

If a species is a member of the Genus Homo, then it is correctly called "human."

This was before Homo, though, and fits nicely with the earliest tools found - mentioned in an earlier post.

What this is is more evidence pertaining to the previously unknown behavior of hominids.
The sort of thing that keeps me here, in other words.

Perhaps......

But who says they were Homo anything? Perhaps they predate even our own genetic model.....

Maybe thats why they think civilization has is only that old.....

The genetic makeup could be totally different.......


Yeah. Especially if they were Martians on a camp out.
What a place the young earth was for adventure and to hunt.

How many species of animals do you know that cut their meat with sharp tools to get it off the bone..........

There is a difference between tool marks and teeth marks.......

Again , I challenge your premise to the thread while you backtrack on your first presentation........


You're challenging the premise, even though I stated your position in the first post as a possibility?

Or millions of years later animals were skinned as they thawed out of permafrost.


since when does thawing leave cut marks?

We already know our early relatives used tools. Some even made jewlery.

wow, seriously folks

does anyone know the word Hominid is?

in laymans terms its a species that is between and Great Ape and Man

some call them Early man ..

and very likely intelligent enough to make stone tools
to Hunt kill and scrape of Meat from a Kill .


( See here )
Oldowan
en.wikipedia.org...

and is there other species that use stone tools

yup

( and here )

Tool use by animals
en.wikipedia.org...


Does anyone Research any #ing more! holy #!

ignorance is bliss in this thread, for sure...



sicking to see a evangelistic creationist christian..

thinking that this great dirt ball called earth is only 6,000 year old

believing in a Book , written by multiple people, Book of Mathew, Luke, John, Paul etc..
and thinking its a word of god ..

# they should believe in aliens as that what gods & angels are seeing they are not from this earth
and Talking reptilians too..
oh wait .. they do, my bad ,, I forgot about that talking snake devil from the garden of Eden
that cause the casting out of ADAMA and EVEA ..

Ill Admit there is a Mystery GAP from Hominid ( Homo erectus ) to Modern Man ..

just maybe the god/alien altered us . just giving mankind a huge Boost.

So we have butchered bones
in the area that Australopithecus used to live
news.nationalgeographic.com...
We know that Australopithecus used stone tools
www.evoanth.net...

The follow on article actually states



the two known hominid species who lived in the region 3.3 million years ago and could have made the tools—Kenyanthropus platyops and Australopithecus afarensis


So this has nothing to do with the dates for homo being wrong at all

Humans are much older than currently accepted of this I am sure, but these could possibly have been caused by some sharp teeth or claws maybe?

And yet science is not willing to acknowledge just how old intelligent life on this planet could possibly be



I'm still waiting for science finally find some sort of intelligence on this planet...

That cant be possible. According to creationists the earth is only 6,000 years old.......

Oh, how are you sure, did you read a book by an anthropologist, or one by a pseudo-historian...

This thread reminds me of what used to be one of my favorite subjects OOPARTS .Out of place artifacts. Like the mammoth skull that was found with a perfect round hole in the skull , center of forehead .

Thanks for the reminder that there are a lot of strange findings out there that do not get widely published for that reason.

Or perhaps evidence of tool use by a primate branch existing at the time which just didn't meet the requirements to be labeled as a hominid species? Other advanced primates which are our contemporaries do use some basic tools, perhaps not to the extent of knapping rocks to get a particular cutting edge, but hammering with a rock to get at nuts or bone marrow or scraping with an already sharp rock isn't beyond them. The great apes tend to often be smarter than we give them credit for.

Yup, that will be the one that was brought to world attention by the weekly world news...

You forgot a possibility.
Our entire concept of dating is inaccurate and relies to heavily on circular reasoning.

I find it hard to accept that the plethora of different fields and studies used to date things are all totally incorrect. They aren't 100% accurate to the day, of course, but even if they were as low as an 80% accuracy, that's still pretty damn good.

If the date is 1 million years, we could be off by 200,000 years in either direction, that's still not bad at all. (but our dating methods are more accurate than that)

Circular reasoning? Could you elaborate?

Most likely knowledge of the emergence of the Homo genus is inaccurate. I'm not surprised though.


Of course it's inaccurate.

Don't you know we can only account for 6,000 yrs and humans used to live with dinosaurs? That is of course if your religion allows for the existence of dinosaurs.

Jude


Stop it Jude not all of us Christians think like that......LoL ass....

This is a pretty cool find....you know ive often wondered just HOW many civilizations were before us? And even how much older this planet is even more so than claims of scientist......

We only have proof of existence from what we have been able to FIND.....

What of the things that have long been torn asunder by time and the elements......?

What lies beneath the sea at depths we can not reach that once was land?

What of plate shifts, pole shifts and the changes that happen there in that bury things beyond what we can find....

I do not think in this life we will ever know our true ancestry.....

Amazing find


The age of the earth isn't determined by the things we find.
