Well, adding to the thread now: (stuff I picked up this week)
I've found some very bazaar information on advanced medicine of the past. And I'm wondering why it would seem so far fetched that they would know things like this. I'm sure it's been buried. With every scrap of information I dig up I only become more and more certain. How on earth would the ancient world know to put zinc on their eyes to cure vision problems? I'm sure we only officially discovered that scientifically at most within the last couple hundred years. And how do they know about the qualities and effects of things like Aluminum in the human body. They must have been atleast as knowledgeable as we are. Since we can find no technology that would explain how they got this knowledge, we have to assume it came from somewhere before. And I'm betting whatever that source of information was, was mighty supreme.
Another thing that struck me a couple years ago was a discovery channel show about extinct minerals and elements that have been found in fossils in various parts of the earth. Now THAT's vital information. The possibility can't be ruled out that at some point in time the atmosphere of the earth itself allowed for a MUCH longer life-span. That might explain some opinions that the so-called Adam and Eve lived for hundreds of years. That's a bunch of conjecture of course.
I've stumbled on loads of other fascinating junk, but unrelated to this topic, isn't learning fun?
Still digging. Any thoughts?

I'm going to college for the sole purpose of creating this mad chemical, and I fully intend to reach my destination... or die trying
Interesting but I think I'm going to attack this more scientific.
