I do agree with Jazzerman. It used to make my gf mad because some of her proffessors would state 'THIS' as fact, but in the same book they would teach from, 'THIS' would be disproven.
Basically, though, if I wanted an honest opinion on something historical or ancient, I would be more apt to talk to an anthropologist who's still thinking 'dynamic science' than another, such as a historian or scientist. Trust Byrd, she knows her stuff.
Really, I think we would find alot of awesome cities and settlements in desert areas if more people were willing to look. Sonic mapping works excellent in desert areas, especially sandy deserts. Too bad the archeological community doesn't have the resources to map out large areas of desert regions with this technology. I'm willing to bet we would find out alot more about the earth's history than just it's little parasite virii (people). Sadly, though, most sites are found purely by accident, and then the officials are called in. I can't wait to hear more news on this, though... it is very interesting find!

Remember, books are static. The teacher may have been teaching the other idea because of updated material. Did she ever ask... or just get mad?
Aww. Blush. I'm really just a student and really just learning. It's SO fascinating, though!
I need to get my film finished... such an intriguing tale. The historian who recorded the original tale heard it from someone who mixed (impossibly) Aztec material with the Chumash tales and Paiute (possibly) material. But there's alot of good material in that little book (and I love the site) and I would dearly love to do some nondestructive research on the area!

15,000 years? Wouldn't that predate the Sumerian Civ? I wonder what the scientific community will do if they discover evidence of a developed language?
Or they will do anything they can to debunk the date... Even if it has to be debunked unfairly..
wow! an organized civilization from before the ice age! this should rewrite history books but i doubt they will be rewritten. anyways kids dont believe what you learn in school because half of it is most likely wrong.

dont think many professors would even be willing to accept this. It would change everything!
Predating the ice age could mean we would be looking at (if you believe that sort of thing) the ruins of a pre-flood (Noah) civilization! That would be a first, no?
