Sorry but we are way older than 50,000 years

"More than 2,600 sharp-edged flakes, flake fragments, and cores (cobbles from which flakes have been removed), found in the fine-grained sediments of a dry riverbed in the Afar region of Ethiopia, have been dated to between 2.52 and 2.60 million years ago, pushing back by more than 150,000 years the known date at which humans were making stone tools.

Excavated between 1992 and 1994 by Rutgers University paleoanthropologists Sileshi Semaw and John W.K. Harris at three sites along the Gona River, the artifacts are similar in type to the 1.8-million-year-old tools found by Mary Leakey at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania, in the 1960s. Known as Oldowan, the tool type has been found at other East African sites: Omo in southern Ethiopia, Lokalalei in northern Kenya, and Hadar, five miles east of the Gona River study area. Until now the oldest known examples were dated to 2.3 to 2.4 million years ago. "

And this is what "they" are telling us.


who knows.....

Taken in context, when Archaeologists use the word "human," they are talking about any species of the genus Homo.

As in, Homo Erectus.

I have to agree that the genus homo is much older than we are taught. Other people here have already given articles that prove that our use of tools is thousands of years older then thought. It makes you wonder if we really are going through what I call extinction cycles - where we essentially are wiped out, but those that are left are left with nothing and have to start over. There would be evidence of early homo's existence, but the dating would be all off - who knows if we are actually the first to advance? Something we'll never be able to prove as I'm sure everyone wouldn't believe it or accept it. Let alone the fact that they may not have used the same technologies we do to get the same results.

Evidence is shown in language and ancient scripts that not only were they more advanced then us, but that our current belief of "out-of-Africa" is incorrect. See: www.charlottesegypt.com...

Got nothing to do with nothing probably, but (modern) plywood was invented by the father of Alfred Nobel (Nobel Prize, inventor of Dynamite)

hey, what about them spears they found recently?

there was a thread about them a while back.

we have an "unbroken written timeline" give or take what, 3-4000yrs?


neanderthal was around for 200k yrs? who knows what they accomplished.

homo sap sap 150k?

all of a sudden we explode into the tech age in 200yrs?


70yrs from the wright bros to the moon.

hell we were messing with radioactive stuff for 150yrs!

it could be that we implode every 20k yrs. that would be about 6-7 climbs back to the top.

the myths and legends of the past, beyond proof or disproof, i think, goes beyond primitive peoples trying to explain their natural world.

sodom and gemmorah sounds a little too specific to be a random target of space rocks.

don't forget these people have been looking up forever.

no stranger to the heavens. meteors, comets, etc etc.

eta; read some carl jung.

While it is fun to speculate at there have been wars in the past with flying vehicles and nuclear weapons, the documents that talk about it are actually recent documents, not originals from the time that it was supposed to have happened. Some people will argue that the original texts were of that era, and the ones circulating are just mere copies of the older texts.

There is talk of the radiation being proof of the nuclear weapons, however there are many natural occurring things that produce radiation as well, so it would be hard to accept that as proof. With these wars one would expect to find pieces of the supposed air craft littering the desserts, however as far as I know there have been no such finds brought to life. It is possible things were found that archaeologist were not able to figure out and they were shelved somewhere, but that would be speculation at best.

I personally would love for all of this to be true, it would prove so many of my hypothesizes, but with no real solid evidence for it, it is just good speculation at best.

Sorry but I have to totally disagree here....ancient civilisations & technologies are a bit of a passion of mine and there are numerous ancient sources that speak of technologies that we have only 'discovered' in the last 50 years. With everything that I have read/researched and re-read I'm convinced that we have had incredibly destructive wars in our ancient past. I was very sceptical when I first started looking into this many years ago but always with an open mind. The evidence is nothing short of astounding........if you are interested I would suggest you look again.....

True there are some technologies from the past that are just now being rediscovered such as automatic opening doors and even vending machines, however these were used for completely different purposes, than what we use them for today. They also did not operate on electricity but ingenious mechanics.

I have always believed the human race is on a cycle, constantly making the same mistakes over & over & over again, or maybe the race that was here before where killed off by another being (similar to what occurs in Mass Effect for example). I mean, nuclear reactor 2 billion years old? That's to hard to even imagine, all that time ago, all them years, we where possibly in the exact same position we are in now? Heading for the exact same fate? Maybe this what 2012 is all about, maybe it's the end? or the beginning of the end? Maybe I was here, 2 billions ago, typing this exact post? Which then supports the theory of a parallel universe.

So many questions that'll most likely never get answered but I do believe this to be true, I think we are on one great cycle, hopefully this time the human race can figure out where to not go wrong to not repeat this.

...from where I am standing though, if it is true, we are definitely heading in the same direction as 'those who came before us'.

I like how you say "those that came before us". If it is true that we are going through cycles, then we have to admit that we aren't learning anything. I'd have to say that if anything we are getting dumber about it all, but of course who can say that for sure?

I can buy into this.

Its like Battlestar Galactica

typical RC Church..

taking the Vedic nuclear holocaust of Ar-Maghada...

romanizing it (like Krisna into Kristos) conveniently into its own "Armageddon" for modern day Bible stories

same old, same old.
