Re: Interesting Hypothesis

Can you say "Too stupid to live" boys & girls? I knew you could!

A person becomes a member of the Darwin Club & receives a Darwin Award if he/she takes him/herself out of the gene pool in some manner that shows their lack of fitness to survive and/or procreate.

Re: Interesting Hypothesis

If he didn't survive, or if he was unable to reproduce after a silly ass stunt like that... he joins the Darwin Club & gets an award.

Re: Interesting Hypothesis

I didn't state that very well... I think the statement that the artists were high from hypoxia is egregious. I sincerely doubt that anyone with a lick of sense would remain in such an environment once they started feeling some effects of oxygen deprivation. Early humans almost certainly had a hyper...

Re: Interesting Hypothesis

I read this article & guffawed. Yeah, right... Early man braved tortuous crawls, total darkness, the threat of rock falls & entrapment, etc just to get high from anoxia... Some researchers are really digging in the bottom of the barrel to find something, ANYTHING, that will bring attention to their...

Earliest interbreeding event between ancient human populations discovered

The article is somewhat elderly, but interesting nonetheless. Date: February 20, 2020 Source: University of Utah Summary: A new study documented the earliest known interbreeding event between ancient human populations -- a group known as the 'super-archaics' in Eurasia interbred with a Neanderthal-...

Re: Great Pyramid "Air Shafts"

New inscriptions aren't exactly diddly squat Min. It seems to me that finding ancient Egyptian inscriptions in such an inaccessible place should be the death knell for Pyramidiots, Ancient Aliens fanboys, the Alt Pseudo Archaeology crowd & their ilk. They can't possibly say that someone forged thos...

Re: Great Pyramid "Air Shafts"

Dang! I don't know how I missed it... There is a link to the University of Leeds press release posted in the body of the Discover Magazine article... The press release did include one blurry photo of the 'drawings' on the floor. What they called elaborate symbols looks like the usual ubiquitous hie...

Re: Great Pyramid "Air Shafts"

Yeah, they did do that years ago. It was just like the Geraldo Rivera show too... It didn't amount to much of anything. I think they found a few red mason's marks along the way & the terminal block that had bronze handles. Right? Anyway, this was supposedly a new exploration with a much smaller rob...

Great Pyramid "Air Shafts"

Hey Min, (or anyone else...) Are you able to find anything else on this "discovery"? It supposedly took place in 2020 & I haven't seen any articles on it except this one. Granted, Discover isn't exactly credible. It looks like they're trying to separate themselves from the alt/ancient Aliens crowd....

Re: SPAMMER WARNING

They're always probing for a weakness Min. Other than the spammers who are hoping for affiliate payments, the rest are immature individuals who just want to buck the system for bragging rights. At least, that's my take on the subject.

Waiting for them to emerge

Omg... This article is about mammoths... BUT!!! There is a very interesting comment by one of the researchers at the end of the article... It's basically what most paleoanthropologists probably dream of: Yes, the scientists are working on other ancient species that have been lying peacefully in the...

Thanks Min. Hopefully they'll publish quickly. It's not like they currently have a whole lot of irons in the fire.

On the origin of our species

These are exciting times we live in. Who knew that ancient DNA (aDNA) could be retrieved from soils & sediments? (Urine & feces residues?) Who knew that proteins could serve as a proxy in lieu of DNA for species identification of fragmentary bone fossils. (ZOOMS) They're constantly working to push ...

Altamura Man

The research on this fascinating specimen seems to be making some progress of late. They're actually seriously considering removing the remains from the cave in which they were found. Of course they'll probably dither over it first at least another decade before reaching consensus. Maybe I'll live ...
