I met a beautiful Indian lady at school who was very dark skinned, but with straight hair. The palms of her hands and the bottoms of her feet were brigh pink.

It's not wise to generalize too much about "Indians." It has already been pointed out that there were a lot of different lifeways and food cultures all over the Americas, even in what is now the US. Another thing to remember, though, is that most Native Americans do not live on reservations. As such...

Looks like this will be an important debate. Also relates directly to your site, Charlie, because the Walker artifacts (?) have been found in a gravel stratum very similar to yours, and the establishment group is claiming that the pieces in question were formed naturally. I see in your case that the...

A lot of things happened at roughly the same time with the development of agriculture/early cities/ hierarchical goverments and caste systems/ literacy/ civilization, etc. That's why I think this big calendrical device, with all its "subdivisions" is related to the populace and social organizations,...

I think this structure in Peru is quite astonishing. Look at it as art or as architecture. It is stunningly beautiful. (Something I have never thought about Stonehenge.) Something big was going on there in Peru, that we still don't have much of a handle on. I think this one is interesting because th...

It does seem to be hovering there rather than falling precipitously as it did after other spikes. But it started hovering long before the industrial revolution. (n...
