I hope archeologists start excavating some of the sites right away. I want to see what else they find, like tools, burial sites etc. S&F

Tellinger is like a bad penny. Two years ago he was touting Adam's Calendar. In the years before that he was trying to sell books about humanity as a 'Slave Species.' He was retreading the path of Sitchin with an extra twist along the lines of the Aliens movies. I'd provide a link to his 'Slave Species' website, but it went offline last year. Maybe the wayback machine can find it?

It's possible that he'd set his sights on a kind of Icke fame and exchanged those ambitions for the success of Graham Hancock. Here he is again...maybe three times is a charm?


ETA: Nope...I was wrong...Slave Species lives again. He's on tour again too. Maybe this will be his year at last!

well


Mitochondrial DNA and fossil evidence indicates that modern humans originated in Africa about 200,000 years ago

wikipedia




Two critical mutations appeared roughly 200,000 years ago in a gene linked to language, then swept through the population at roughly the same time anatomically modern humans began to dominate the planet, according to new research.

must have been an evolutionary year

Here's a link to Michael Tellinger's and Johan Heine's website, Makomati:

(I find the Adams Calendar very interesting)

Its very difficult for stuff to survive even 1000 years, not to mention 200 000. This is great news if true. Those who claim we were apes 200 000 years ago wont like it though...

Its about time all the ancient human history should be "torn up" and rewritten, lets start from scratch again with what we know now...
All the evidence does not fit the history anymore

OH I KNOW ,my main reason for posting this is Something is there and I would love more details about it, I dunno what to think about the 'Slave Species' thing. We do get treated like disposable cattle by the TPTB,and something is going on with that

they have way to much of whatever they want and desire for it to be natural,and we don't do enough to oppose them for no reason I can can call sane.

back to the site I dunno how ruins this ancient fit with Sumerian mythology so I'm leaving that part out and focusing on the archaeology itself,since I believe it will tell it's own story

Viewzone?

Really?

I'm gonna need to see a link to a legitimate source before I'll believe news this extraordinary.

Needless to say it has some serious implications ......if true. I will have to see more evidence before rewriting the history books. What was the climate and coastline of that area of Southern Africa 200,000 years ago?

oh I think most people who would even care about a find like this already know that humans were never "apes" in the first place and that we branched off way longer than 200,000 years ago.

I can understand your curiosity about our distant past. The same interest is in me too. The thing is...Tellinger is just making stuff up. He can see a pile of rocks and present them as lost civilisations. He continually face-plants himself by forgetting that anywhere interesting in Africa has been studied already.

People live in these places. They have tourist boards, archaeologists write about them. In a sense he's stealing their culture, re-writing it and trying to sell this bogus stuff.

There's a good reason why he's failed to make an impression after nearly ten years of trying...no facts, no evidence and his claims are falsifiable.

Humanity did not exist 200,000 years ago.

We evolved 50,000 years ago.

en.wikipedia.org...

[edit on 25-7-2010 by Gorman91]

While we evolved anatomically 200,000 years ago, we did not mentally evolve until 50,000 years ago.


Please research before trusting an obviously biased site.

No. Factually.


See my above edition.

The reason the 2nd theory is all but debunked is because it implies the races are unequal, when we know mentally we are equal, and in fact quite simply the same mentally. It is a statistic improbability that all humans globally evolved their brains around the same time 50,000 years ago.

will all you guys relax
I know all that

I'm just asking do these ruins exist ? I f so we should find out more about them

I 'm not talking about human evolution like I said the dating of this site has to be bogus ,but are the ruins themselves bogus?


do we have any African ATSers who can shed some light on this?

inquiring minds want to know
