Human etchings half a million years old?

The uncertainty of science: Did an ancestor of humanity etch zig-zags on a shell half a million years ago?

This story is a fascinating illustration of the difficulties of pinning down facts in the field of science. The researchers do an impeccable job of checking all possibilities, and finish by cheerfully admitting that their conclusions could be wrong. If right, however, the discovery is significant, as it tells us that 500,000 years ago an ancestor of the human race was capable of drawing an abstract design on the surface of a shell.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!

 

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

 

All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

 

Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    Two more examples of how the history of man has to be further studied to be properly understood:

    Globeki Tepi

    http://youtu.be/eHG9URGDt6s

    And the Indian city of Dwarka

    http://youtu.be/nQZFS9Hij0M

    Both established to be built aprox. 11.5 to 12 thousand years old. Globeki Tepi is an elaborate stone construction related to worship possibly representing the symbolic disconnecting / transition from hunter gatherer groups to agriculturally based societies / civilizations. Much older than the pyramids which in themselves are fantastic achievements with the technology of the day (how old are the pyramids really?). Built and then over time totally buried by hand, and the City of Dwarka on the coast of India now under 200 feet of water. So old that when the real deal melting of the ice sheets was in the process of increasing sea level by 300 feet. Possibly the real basis for Atlantis.

    Human beings, potential unlimited.

    Just goes to show the invitation to “come up and see my etchings” is an older line than anyone thought!
