Re: Idaho, huh?

I found the last paragraph in the Seattle Times article interesting wherein the archaeologist is comparing the tools found in Idaho to those extant in Japan at the time. The Japanese current takes boats directly over to British Columbia, Washington and Oregon. There are historical accounts of Japan...

Re: Religious thought

Oh, and just as an FYI, I completely disagree with this author. I consider myself to be more of a spiritual than religious person, and yet I still believe that discipline is important, and that challenge is an important aspect of life. This person clearly is biased, and clearly doesnt understand wh...

Re: Going Forward

Well said J Peters. It's going to be a long, hard row for you to hoe... Michelle has giant shoes for you & the rest of her colleagues to fill... I hope that y'all are up to the task & I wish y'all the best of luck. Michelle's presence is already deeply missed. It's awful knowing that we'll never ge...

Great Min! Terminate with extreme prejudice! Get medieval with them. Too bad you can't physically pillory them in public... *sigh* I'll just have to fantasize... :lol: (I hate spammers)

Re: Huh?

And how would DNA prove the religious affiliation of the body being tested? And how does the Egyptian Government prevent DNA testing outside Egypt? The Egyptian government prevents outsider genetic testing on the human remains that are within their control, i.e. all human remains that are in Egypt....

Re: Going Forward

The "PTB" (Powers That Be) need to set up a vetting process that will prevent kicked former board members from returning. I'd hate to see this board be taken over by the fringe now that Michelle is no longer here to
oversee the membership vetting process.

Re: Another new hominid species?

LMAO!!! I reread that National Geographic article & watched the video... I once again noticed the Clovis First bias exhibited by the National Geographic Society... Towards the end of that short video, it shows the dispersal routes of hominins throughout the world... For the migration into the new w...

Re: Another new hominid species?

I think that the HE remains at Dmansi have gone a long way toward resolving that issue. Those skulls & post cranial remains showed just how much variation in phenotype a contemporaneous population can exhibit. If the archaeologists involved hadn't been able to prove the contemporaneous nature of th...

Re: Going Forward

Not to mention former board members who were kicked... It's gonna be a big mess for a while. I certainly wouldn't want to be a responsible party here if and/or when the fringe nuts hear about Michelle's demise. It will be a freaking feeding frenzy... Just imagine who'd be back to promote their agen...

Re: Is this the End?

We never really realize how integral other people are in our lives til one of them is gone. That's when we notice the void left in their absence. Michelle spent 18 years of her life finding articles on archaeology & then making them available to the public, all on one website. I know that she made ...
