We may not find a scarab in the paintings.. there is a minimum of 20,000 years between what you know and learnt and the paintings.
I'm not trying to compare only two cultures. I think I've done at least four so far and am slowly progressing through as much as I can. The
strongest links, so far, are with the Egyptians.
But of course that would be the strongest due to their proximity. We must not forget the difference in time, the slow and gradual change of thoughts
and ideas ad ways to represent thing, but some things here seem to have stuck and stayed the same,.the hippo type creature is a prime example of that
along with the symbol for the sun. And let's also remember how the cave paintings use that very same symbol for at least three stars.
No offence, but you seem to be thinking along a time line that relates to ancient Egypt (as we currently know it) where as the paintings relate to a
time line tens of thousands of years before anything we've ever known.
From what I can see, these paintings are showing us something mind blowing. I'm determined to prove it too.
I feel so strongly that I'm right about what I can see. To me, it's as clear as day that there was a very highly advanced culture that more recent
cultures have learnt from and carried on with certain traditions, beliefs and symbology.
Of course we may not find grain spread across the areas in question from those times as we've not been looking for them or they've long rotted and
broken down or were simply never taken anywhere else.
30,000 years is a long time and to the best of our abilities these days we're still only scratching the surface.
We may not find similar items between the paintings and any other known culture due to the time difference. One thing is for sure.. anything related
to Egypt in the paintings must have spread from an area that was well known, lived in and people explored from..
These paintings are in France after all.
I don't recall anything Egyptian travelling to France (maybe you do) unless it was brought there by the Romans, which again, is a different time
It has been shown that a papyrus boat can, and could have previously, cross the Atlantic.. but again, we're not looking back further into the past.
We're all mostly going on what we currently believe we know.
In our history, we had arguments about how the world was flat..but it wasn't, never was and never will be. We also once believed the Earth was the
centre of the universe and the planets, along with the sun, rotated around us..
how wrong we were..
