Regardless, most excellent find OP!
I'm relatively new to this site, so forgive me if I repeat what some of you have been saying for a while. Too many bits of evidence are out there
(but for some reason ignored) that prove an advanced knowledge existed well before the time we recognize as the birth of civilization.
I read about the foundation stones of Baalbek within the past year. That alone shattered my previous belief system.
Posts such as this one are helping me regain a foothold. Thank you!
Since you're new here, you probably haven't had much chance to look around.
I suggest you use the search function here on any of these "bits of evidence" that you believe indicate any advanced knowledge in ancient times.
I believe you'll find that in fact, they indicate no such thing.
For example, the foundation at Baalbek was installed by the Romans.

NWO conspiracy stuff....lets wait to see whats found. If its 2 million years old I guess that in itself debunks a lot of what we already believe to be
Actually, no. Any ancient precursor to Homo Sapiens that has the designation "Homo" is rightly referred to as human.
H. Sapiens did not occupy this cave.

I wonder if , with this find, they are going to finally reevaluate the time fame for people on this planet.
Not likely, since this find fits quite well into the current timeline.

You must be talking about the timeline for civilization here.
What has that got to do with a cave and the artifacts left in it by a subspecies of Homo Erectus?

Im also intrigued as to how they actually concluded the age of 2,000,000 when C14-dating is supposed to be limited to 45,000 (my science teacher,
correct if im wrong).
I'm puzzled about why this intrigues you. The information about what dating methods could be used has already been posted twice in this thread.

Until scientists develop a RELIABLE and ACCURATE method of dating stuff, I won't believe any date stamped upon anything. Carbon dating, like you
people said only works for about 50 000 years. All the other dating methods can't and never will be accurate because too many supernovas has
happened close enough to our solar system. That kind of event resets and scrambles the clocks on all radioactive elements.
Please list some of these other dating methods that "can't and never will be accurate..."
My bet is that you're not even aware of a single other method.
If you were, you'd know that several methods don't even rely on any radioactive material at all.
Originally posted by SaidarAnd cmon people imagine yourself how long 2 million years is. My steel hammer got destroyed in 10 years by
oxidation. What makes you think any artifact will survive for 2 million years? Even if it gets petrified the odds or staggering
Do you, by chance, possess a stone hammer?
Why don't you put it in your backyard, sit and stare at it, and get back to us when it deteriorates away into nothing.
