I too have wondered why TPTB would actively work to keep discoveries relating to not only advanced earlier civilizations - but even discoveries that
simply show humans (anatomically modern humans to be specific) have existed much, much longer than the 200k give-or-take range that s generally
accepted by mainstream science.
I recently watched a fascinating documentary on YouTube about a site in Mexico that was being re-investigated that was giving up some pretty solid
evidence that anatomically modern humans - or something with feet like AMH at any rate - were present in the New World at some staggeringly early
date. This would imply that our present understanding of human and/or human ancestors development, range in the world and perhaps even intelligence
(did they build boats and cross oceans?) was vastly inaccurate. The constant obstacles and outright sabotage from US and Mexican Authorities (permits
to dig, travel, etc etc) were unbelievable but documented, with several related persons ending up dead! When they finally got back to the site,
someone had built a house and landscaped the exact area where the dig had been. It was incredibly interesting (most of you would probably enjoy it,
for the findings as well as the mystery) and though the title is escaping me at the moment, someone here probably knows which docu I'm referring to.
But anyway, the question remains - why would anyone - apart from perhaps young earth religious folks - care enough to actively suppress, sabotage,
threaten and possibly murder people to keep such findings secret and strongly discourage others from picking up the Torch? Not that I'm suggesting
religious types (at least not fundamental mainstream religious types) as they already have a very divergent view of history from science anyway, so
anything more would seem to be more a threat to established science than anyone else.
One of the consulted Geologists that consistently disagree with the findings of early humans in the docu is quoted as saying off camera by one of the
other crew members that he didnt care what the proof showed - the implications were just too far off (out?) from his accepted paradigm (ahem, dogma?).
Imagine that - a scientist blatantly admitting that true objective science -facts - aren't what inform his worldview any longer, but instead
comfortable familiar ideas based on outdated data. Truly Science is for many simply another type of religion.
I suppose there could certainly be some dark and mysterious reason for those in charge suppressing knowledge of our true history and facts that
instantly render accepted theories as outdated. But could it really be as simple as people fearing for their jobs and positions of power and prestige?
Certainly. And perhaps even more tragic o pathetic, simple human fear of change, of realizing the role you think you know is anything but.
I think I almost like the idea that there's some mysterious and secret reason why we can't know the truth. To think its just scared and worried
humans - no better or worse than myself (tho with different limits and ideas of what matters obviously) is not only disheartening but also...dare I
say it? ...unpalatable to my current world view. :-)
