I'll be damned
You linking to your own post on this forum as your source. That is pretty messed up.

Why didn't you just use your original member name? Trying to hide something? Think you might fool someone?

Re: The fossil of people is found together with dinosaurs
Here are photos:

Those are indeed photos. There's no denying that. Photos is certainly what they are. I know a photograph when I see one.

And yet they are not photos of dinosaurs and humans in the same strata, which is what I was led to expect.

Unless perhaps I'm missing something.

Where's the human? Where's the dinosaur?

Re: The fossil of people is found together with dinosaurs
Where's the human? Where's the dinosaur?

Well, obviously, the dino is that golden-eyed thingie which was apparently preserved in some kind of kiln after being soaked in multiple vats of a silica substance tinged with cobalt carbonate.

The "newborn Russian person" is hiding under that rather nice colorful bedspread embarrassed at the present state of Russian paleontology.

I've no idea what that rock is doing there except maybe holding down the newborn Russian person hiding under that rather nice colorful bedspread embarrassed at the present state of Russian paleontology.

Re: Since written language?
Peg writes:

The only way that human migration can be traced before the advent of written language, is by the evidence of their existence which is dug out of the ground, ie bones, tools, artifacts etc

To my knowledge, this is incorrect.
Genetics can do this to. How else does the Genographic Project from National Geographic work? All you do is send in a DNA sample and you receive a nice DVD with the full migration path of your ancestors ever since they left africa 10s of thousands of years ago.

B. The Origin of Demons
Thus says the Lord God to Tyre, And they shall take up a lamentation over you and say to you, 'How you have perished (vanished, in other translations), 0 inhabited one, From the seas, 0 renowned city, Which was mighty on the sea, She and her inhabitants, Who imposed her terror On all her inhabitants!'" (Ezek. 26:15, 17 NASB)

For thus says the Lord God: When I make you a city laid waste, like the cities that are not inhabited, when I bring up the deep over you, then I will thrust you down with those who descend into the Pit, to the people of old, and I will make you to dwell in the nether world, among primeval ruins, with those who go down to the Pit, so that you will not be inhabited or have a place in the land of the living. (Ezek. 26:19﷓20)

These verses in Ezekiel 26 above take on even more significance when it is realized that only two chapters later in this same book of the Bible, Satan is referred to allegorically as the king of Tyre. It is most likely that these verses are an allegorical reference to what happened on the earth at the time of Satan's rebellion. Who are the people of old, and where did these primeval ruins come from?

This is the major rift valley of the Earth; a second one, also perpendicular to and astride the equator, has been detected in the submerged Mid﷓Atlantic Range. 95

This being the case, we should expect to find evidence of a racial myth, a legend, with the following characteristics:

1. The legend is persistent, despite there being no cultural or archaeological evidence whatsoever to support it.
2. This legendary race lived on a continent﷓island﷓city that was situated in the Atlantic Ocean and was destroyed by a violent, cataclysmic disaster, which caused a rapid, complete inundation by the ocean due to its sinking.

Do we find evidence of such a persistent legend in the literature of our race?

But to this day the tradition, as revived by Plato, has not died....
An incomplete catalogue of the literature on Atlantis in 1926 included 1,700 titles. 99

Has anyone reading this not heard of the legend of Atlantis?

29000 year old civilization in Bosnia???
Wondering how this link I found fits in with this thread:

http://www.wakingtimes.com/...kli-tepe-and-its-message-to-us

And then this link:

http://consciouslifenews.com/...proof-recorded-history-wrong

Or are these pseudo-science links?

The central Bosnian pyramid is almost 3 times taller than the biggest one in Egypt (420 meters versus 146).

Nonsense here too...

Re: 29000 year old civilization in Bosnia???
A quick look at Wiki, going through the footnotes, indicate the Osmanagic Hypothesis is a hoax.

Some respected archaeologists in Europe are incensed by the claims and a curator of the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina just laughs at the hypothesis.

Results of local geologists' studies all conclude the "pyramid" is a natural feature, not man-made. Other geologists in Europe and the US agree.

Looks like Osmanagic may be a charlatan.

Re: 29000 year old civilization in Bosnia???
He's just crazy.

I've got no idea about Bosnian geology, but just from the photo, I can see that those are not man-made 'pyramids'.

Any geologist in South Africa would be able to tell you those 'pyramids' are a result of a hard cap (most likely basalt) underlain by softer sedimentary rocks. Erosion does the job. We've literally got millions of those features in the Karoo.

Hey, but he's a 'social scientist' who thinks that he knows more about geology than those hundreds of thousands of geologists from all over the world... wonder if he knows what a basalt is?

Re: 29000 year old civilization in Bosnia???
Bosnian archaeology goes something like this

Mujo: Haso did you know that in america they dug 500 meeter's and found a telephone cable, this means that 5000 years ago Americans where using telephones. And in Russia they dug 1000 meeter's and found a internet cable, that means that the Russians where using the internet 10 000 years ago.

Haso: Mujo in Bosnia they dug 500 meeter's they found nothing, they dug 1000 meeter's found nothing, they dug 1500 meeter's still they found nothing. Do you know what this means? It means that 15 000 years ago Bosnians where using mobile telephones.


Christianity, One woman's lie about an affair that got seriously out of hand

What are the Christians gonna do to me ..... Forgive me, good luck with that.
