NO, NO, NO!!! The world is only 6000 years old because an old book full of myths, legends, and tall-tales SAYS SO!!!!

And anyways, if this is REAL, than SATAN put that rock here just to FOOL US!!! Just like he did the DINOSAUR FOSSILS and everything else that provides CONCRETE evidence that the world is NOT only 6000 years old!!!

FACTS AND EVIDENCE....(finger in ear and shouting: LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA) I am a bible thumping close-minded person and my little bible book is true and everything else FAKE...

SATAN DID IT, SATAN DID IT, SATAN DID IT...

I refuse to wanna acknowledge any FACTS and EVIDENCE and if you mention that, I will put my finger in ear and shout out: LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA

SOOOOO, Now that we got the SATAN DID IT nonsense out of the way, hopefully we can keep FAIRY TALES and BOOGIE-MEN out of the discussion to keep this on a NON-FICTIONAL path.

As we EVOLVE, we are PUTTING THE FINAL NAILS IN THE COFFIN OF RELIGION!!!!!!!!! How I WISH to see a day where people stop buying into the religion nonsense and stop the hate and fighting and killing that go on all over the planet due to religion which is ALWAYS at the root of the problem.

This is great stuff. SCIENCE is AWESOME and will eventually be the LIBERATOR for the whole planet!!!

I don't think our ancient cousins were primitive like we are lead to believe.


You may recall that I've stated as much several times here.

My gut feeling is that some versions of H. Erectus were capable of ocean voyages.

Erectus is my favorite Homo.

oh ya and what, let me guess, no we that believe in the bible shouldn't, and shouldn't use it as our reference in life, and shouldn't have an opinion about anything using that reference point. We have our compass, you don't got nothing but a bunch of shotty corporate science reports that anyone could doctor up, and are certainly not time tested. Oh right but I shouldn't say that because I'm not allowed to have an option, hail Hitler!

if these ones that we found are 500000 years old, how old are the ones we havent found yet, it amazing how we can find little sharpend rocks 500000 later, it almost makes me wonder, who wanted us to find these? or who finnelly released this discovery and why? great as always slayer keep it up.


We've found stone tools going back 2.6 millions years ago. They were found by the scientists noted in the links above, they released it, you've been reading to much ATS!

and yet Egyptologists still argue that Khafre built the Sphinx during his reign 2520-2494 BC when theres clear evidence of water erosion around the enclosure which equals at least 7000 BC but could be as old as 36,000 BC
so to say the sphinx wasnt built in 2500 BC and say it was built between 7000 and 36,000 BC dosnt seem to much of a jump anymore, to me anyway


Think about what a wadi does...sphinx at the end of funnel for water coming off plateau

Still about 200,000 these tools are thought to have been made by a predecessor of HSS HSH (Homo heidelbergensis)

Whoa whoa whoa.......I am a "bible thumper" and there is no way shape or form that I believe the earth is only 6,000 years old.....

Just because someone believes in Jesus Christ as our lord and saviour does not make them believe everything you are stating in your post!!

Why does someone either have to be a super religious type or not?? Every time I see people comment on religion, it turns into your worst case scenario......

Please elaborate if you would care to......"Nail in the coffin of religion"???? What is the hell are you talking about? You think because the earth is not 6,000 years old, that completely dismisses the fact that there is a god??

Wow.....some people walk around with blinders on, listen to whatever their "friends" tell them about religion.......

Please respond back to my questions above, I am interested in what makes you think this way?

Slayer, am I imagining things, or have there been several finds in just the past few years that keep pushing time lines back far beyond what was previously considered consensus? Is there a pattern emerging here?

It seems like, as a species, we may be on the brink of a historical paradigm change.

Scientists measure success in finding new things - and they work hard at it, new techniques, better methods, sharing of information has made more finds 'easier' - besides a large body of well trained archaeologists and specialists to do the work. Grants, tenure, book deals and standing follow a new find

I knew posts like this would come up. Obviously you have a grudge against Christianity, but you have not read or studied the bible. The bible does NOT say the earth is 6000 years old. In fact, the bible emphatically states that there was an "age" before our current age, and that age was destroyed by God. The bible is trotted out by uneducated people both pro Christian and anti Christian.

I recommend either avoiding the topic if you are not going to actually study it, or study it to know the truth of at least what is in the bible. We are each entitled to believe what we want to believe, but please stop posting stuff like this that is based on a long held lie regarding what some ignoramuses said who took someone's word for it. The bible never said the earth is 6000 years old.

Here are some other frequent misunderstandings :

Adam and Eve were not the only people God created. The bible says God made some for fishers, hunters and then he wanted one to till the ground. Obviously races that God made and liked very much.

There is no apple in the garden of Eden.

Jesus was not born on Dec. 25th.

3 kings did not visit Jesus on his birthday

Jesus had brothers and sisters

Dinosaurs and UFO's are in the bible

Those are just some off the top of my head. Just because a lot of people repeat something does not make it the truth.

Stories like this kinda put the smack-down on paleotologists.


What a great find.

So many questions.

Where to begin

Could this be the hominid people that the God Annu used to combine with his own DNA to produce the Adamu?
The Location is pretty well in the same area (africa:@@

The 250000 yr old South Afircan super state of gold miners....?

Here's a thought... someone said 500.000 years and we still didn;t leave this rock?

what if we did evolve but we had to leave/escape and couldnt carry the whole population with us? those remaining struggle to survive and kind of forget the knowledge as generations went on?

could we have direct connection with a civilization that managed to go away and live somewhere else? that would be a nice movie i guess

How is it a 'smack down'? You do realize this is what scientists are trained to do - find new stuff?

In case you didn't realize Jayne Wilkins is a paleotologist in training? So she's smacking herself down? lol

The points in question were excavated about thirty years ago, these findings come out of a study funded by the University of Toronto and the Institute of Human Origins (plus some other places) the four people who are listed as authors are either paleontologists in training or archaeologists with a subject area interest in lithics

Indeed. It wouldn't be modern science if they didn't do those things.

The next question or find could be.....

Before Homo-Sapien Sapien were any of the others moving large stones around creating primitive structures like Dolmens and or erecting simple standing stones?

Nah the next question would be did they have language and if they built societies above the level of a family group

how could a spear last 500,000 years? That makes no sense. not a single atom would be in the same place after that long in my opinion.

I've seen evidence of possible "structures" built by Erectus, but they were individual huts/shelters and not large constructions.

I wonder how many times humans have invented something, only to have it lost to history...


I wonder how many times humans have had to start over and rediscover how the world works....
