I remember that through the analyzation of, I think it was olmec heads, scientists believe that the Ancient Africans and the South/Central American kingdoms had some sort of trade route set up. I'll try to find more info, but my question is this, are there any written records or clues other than the fact that some olmec heads looked african? Like I said I'll look this up more but I was wondering if there was some info out

I've been facinated by this myself Dreamstone! I had always intended to bring this up myself one day.

There is other evidence besides the African appearance of the heads...of course I can't remember any of it right now. Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hanncock(sp?) had alot of info on the subject. Like you, I'm going to look for some links and post them.

One more interesting tidbit: As far as I know, there have been no Olmec bodies found.

No olmec bodies found?! I didn't know that. Yet another aspect of mystery to this. Perhaps a great Olmec migration to Africa? Or maybe they favored cremating their dead. That is a neat little tidbit, thanx

I thought the heads were a connection between south america and asia. I can not remember off the top of my head, what other asian country has similar carvings, but I do however remember a teacher talking about the similarities between the two.

Yeah, I always thought the logical answer to the lack of Olmec bodies was cremation...but who knows?

As to the Asian country with similar carvings, maybe your teacher was talking about Ankor Wat? I forget the name of the civilization.

they were revered as human gods, they supposedly taught several subjects to the natives, they also traded coc aine to and fro...

there is a topic already started with more information, yet i know not how to find it...

comon people do you really think that 2000 years is the birthplace of man in civil quarters?

Could you please tell me what time period this happened, after the rise of civilization (Egypt), ice age or after Chirst.

in reference to time men have been on this planet for at least 300ooo years, i would be foolish to assume i am the most modern being that time is non existant and evolution is a false theory...

Sorry, I meant modern advanced like Egypt and Greece.
I am sure there were many civilizations before Egypt but Egypt is most known earliest, recorded, and most well known civilization right?

Some suggestions on places mentioned here from

Q: (L) Who made the Nazca lines in South America and what was their purpose?
A: Those were natives living in the area at the particular time who were highly advanced spiritually and they put those lines there to call to others that were
coming from what they perceived to be an outer space location.
Q: (L) Were they symbols of power in any way?
A: Well, some may have perceived them as such but they were mainly an effort to call forth those who had been worshipped and had appeared to them
previously from the outside including not only the Lizard Beings, but other travelers.
Q: (L) Who built the city of Angkor Wat?
A: That was built by the Lizard Beings themselves. Built approximately 3108 years ago.
Q: (L) Who built the city of Mohenjo Daro?
A: That also was built by the Lizard Beings directly.
Q: (L) Did they live in these cities?
A: No, as stated before, they did not live there, they visited or occupied on a temporary basis, but did not live there.
Q: (L) Who did they build the cities for?
A: They built the cities for themselves and their worshippers amongst humans.

Q: We watched this television show the other night which talked about the city of Angkor Wat and its orientation to Draco 10,500 BC. You said that Angkor
Wat was built 3108 years ago by the Lizzies themselves, and that the city of Mohenjo Daro was also built by the Lizzies 3065 years ago, which is within 30 or
40 years of the same time period. Do you still confirm that the Lizzies themselves built these cities?
A: Reptilian Beings.
Q: And they did this themselves?
A: Yes.
Q: What happened to the inhabitants of these cities?
A: Taken to another planet.
Q: Why was this city built in orientation to the constellation Draco?
A: Was not, was a record: see the texts of Kaballah for details after linkage is established.
Q: After what linkage is established.
A: Between the astronomical data and the sites.

that is imposed i would have to concur that khemet was the earliest known civilization after another one of mans fallings...

yet, that does not mean that there was a potentiality of greater civilizations that occured prior...

Everyone should watch the Disc. Channel show, Cocaine Mummies. It shows that there was trade between the Old and New world long, long before that monster Columbus "discovered America".
It also shows the lenghts Egyptologists have gone to in order to cover up this fact.

I don't see why they are though. Since everything on this stinking planet comes down to money, the complete re-writing of history should be a plus. Book companies would get to sell all new textbooks, museums would get to set up new exhibts, etc...

i never viewed the picture though that perspective...

Basically, all these have "evidences" showing a great connection between Oriental/Polynesian and the Olmecs.
