This is why I come to this site so often. I love news like this.

And thanks to you as well Movhisattva, I had never heard of the Plain of Jars before. Will read up alot more on that now.


I found this news because of a thread CaptainBeno made. Astronomers Find Two Galaxy Systems like our Own The source for his information is the same site and the article was in the side options for interesting topics.

When I saw that this wasn't already on ATS I just had to share it because I know that I'm not the only one who finds out History curious. I come for the knowledge about today but stay for the knowledge about our past

According to this man there is evidence supporting these claims. We have discovered evidence of modern men in geo deposits millions opf years old.

We didn't evolve from apes in 5,000 years.

Yeah I know, I said that in my post that you replied to....so why don't you facepalm yourself because you can't read.

Of course, it's ok for you to ignore the rest of his post. Including this:

Humans and other primates extant today share a common ancestor that existed approximately 8-6 million years ago. Humans did not directly evolve from great apes, even though we share common physical and genetic properties (chimpanzees are ~96% genetically alike to humans).


But who is this "everyone" who thinks we evolved from apes in 5,000 years? I'm not aware of anyone.

It's just funny how everyone thinks we evolved from apes in 5000 years.

No one of real evolutionary science believe we evolved from apes, we are a type of ape. A lot of creationists love to get that wrong on purpose.


What was the pre animal of the ape tree that apes and man cam from? Was it not a shrew and prior to that what something that lived in the sea? Creationist are not as stupid as you think they are, and we don't make mistakes on puropose.

So interesting*
There are a large 150+ cave network with many unexplored in the area of the Annamite Mountains. Here is a National Geographic link to a picture of a cave in the area called Hand Son Doong or "Mountain River Cave".
Don't know if this is the cave but it was first explored in 2009 and the skull is theorized to have washed into the cave. 4th Picture in.

Here is another article on the skull with more pics. Does show the outside entrance of the cave.

Thanks for clearing that up. We aren't apes.. We are a type of ape. And even modern apes didn't evolve from apes. They are a type of ape.

It might be of interest to creationists, to research adaptation to adversity; this is the main trigger for evolution of a species.

Have you personally observed adaptation to adversity resulting in evolution?

Adversity is wide and varied on a daily basis, although chemicals etc altering our DNA is a good example of the body trying to adapt to its environment by producing genetic mutations. Something like longer limbs etc. if advantageous to the species is something we very very slowly adapt too. The cross breeding of dog species based on traits of that breed to produce a different breed based on human likes and needs from dogs is a fine example. If humans found a genetic mutation advantageous or attractive, such as web toes, or the blue people of Kentucky; then they would be more apt to breed with them to produce off spring with those desired traits. This is of course a faster evolutionary track than what occurs naturally over an indeterminate amount of time.

If these traits are undesirable or weak to adapt then the branch will eventually be phased out from the passing of time. Eugenicists have been aware of this for quite some time, and have tried to alter and influence the human species to evolve in many varied ways. Some might even think a conspiracy could be found in advertising, by trying to instill who is beautiful, or what traits are desired in the masses; to push human evolution in that direction.

Well, in Laos, I would tend to think it's probably not a white dude.... just a hunch.


Well who knows:



wow thats amazing , thanks for sharing. Those mummies are scary lookin theyre so "fresh" lol.

OP , awesome find. And the fact that its just a regular skull and people arent saying" FREAKIN ALIEN DUDE" makes it so much better. lol S&F

I was excited to see the video until a well known hoaxer showed up in it to present a slide show. This is the same guy that was presenting the South American UFO pottery; a known hoax.

but seriously, the creationists will probably be here soon.

good find tho


I guess you missed that part where it says a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years are as a day unto The Lord (paraphrased and I believe that is in the books of Peter.

To each their own beliefs but there really is no need to pick on anybody in this issue like that.It makes you presentation look petty.


Here is a link so you can further your education on this issue:

Very nice article and nice pics!

According to the article the soil surrounding the fossil had washed into the cave between 46,000 and 51,000 years ago so it fits in with current out of Africa migration models (which have modern humans in SE Asia 50,000 years ago). But this skull is a nice find.

They even found human bones with dinosaur bones but that didn't make the MSM. It's just funny how everyone thinks we evolved from apes in 5000 years. If that could even happen it wouldn't happen that fast. Would take millions of years for something to accomplish that and apes would still be evolving. Yet people take History as truth just because they read it or was told something. Then people say the bible could be lies and it very well could be just like history could be nothing but lies. History is determined by the victor not by truth.

No, they haven't found human bones "with" dinosaur bones. The argument doesn't need to go further than that.

The other extant great ape species are always evolving, just like humans, another great ape species. It did take millions of years, no-one thinks it happened in 5,000 years.

This is what happens when you accept such a nonsense premise as "creationism". Your standards enter a slippery slope.

Except from saying it are huge stone jars I cannot really answer your questions. I doubt anyone can with certainty.

According who you ask, you'll get different answers.
The scientist will give you assumptions, the mythologist will give you tales, the local will joke that giants brew their 'Beerlao' in it.

You'll find tons of info if you search 'plain of jars', I believe also here on ATS.

Anything solid stone is always going to be aged roughly the same as the earth, since it was carved after that date; it becomes hard to tell exactly when it was made; unless there is evidence of an ancient civilization housing them or in very close proximity with tools to make the objects. Housing is iffy, because they could have been made earlier and moved there like we do with objects placed in museums.
