Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hello Circumspice, Thanks for the link to the interesting article. Mellaart was a tragic figure despite his talents. Was his ego the problem, perhaps mental illness, or just succumbing to professional pressure to perform? Archaeology certainly took a hit with spoiled information about the site in qu...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hi Circumspice, Fraud may be viewed as a serious charge, and you have spent much verbal capital denigrating conspiracy theories with the caveat, apparently, that these comments do not apply to you. Before one starts yelling "fire," one might look again to see if the smoke is in fact super heated hot...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hi Circumspice, This is the only forum I am a member of or have posted on. I never expected concurrence with my conjectures, but I did hope that a few folks would consider the possibility that the assemblage was real. I suppose you suggest there is concurrence on this forum, perhaps akin to the E.P....

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Shawomet, You will be relieved to hear that the possible artifact you mention and show is not one Jack analyzed as "provable Pleistocene," though a good number of the rocks posted on the Rock Art Museum site were. Jack did state that he was not sure about the piece but that I should hang on to it. H...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hello Circumspice, The facts of this thread were established from the get go. Speculation (not theory) I have espoused has never been attributed to others. These speculations would have to be way more fleshed out to be hypotheses much less theories. Strait line logic and common sense are my tools of...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hello Circumspice, You are running with the bit in your teeth, as you may suspect that I have done. Your recall of some of my offbeat ideas and analyses of stones is impressive. Yes, a distinction needs to be made about what Jack endorses about this assemblage. As stated previously, Jack has said th...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hello Shawomet, "Proof by citing authority does not cut it with me." Any surface find has a context problem but may still fit into a pattern with volume of finds, their relation to natural and man made features, and their function as a tool, effigy, etc. Jack was able to see that certain found piece...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hi Circumspice, This thread was never intended to troll members past, present, and future. Paranoid is a strong and highly derogatory term that does not describe my mind set. I might be described better as a generalist with wide ranging pursuits. My interest in archaeology has been life long, and ea...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hello Circumspice, I am sorry you feel this thread has become (or always was?) a waste of bandwidth, but I certainly respect your stance and choice to step back. I have never been likened to a cat before, and truly, I am not a herd animal. My ability to care for animals, children, and the aged is re...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Shawomet, Thanks for your comments. Jack has described quite a few artifacts seen on the Portable Rock Museum site gallery as "provable Pleistocene." I think your blanket rejection of all the pieces as natural rocks may be premature. One example, the very pure red jasper hammerstone (grouped with a ...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hello Cicumspice, Shawomet, Minimalist, and Simon21, I appreciate your taking the time to review the subject images posted on the Portable Rock Art Museum site. I am certainly not surprised at the unanimous reaction to those images. Granted, some of the images are not crisp, but many are in proper f...

[urlhttps://www.rockartmuseum.com/][/url] Hello Shawomet, Thank you for your response. I do not feel I have been mistreated by you despite your resolute stance of skepticism concerning claims and speculations I have made in this thread. I have absolutely no problem with your opinions and I respect y...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hello Circumspice, Anyone looking for an archaeological find would be ecstatic to have it come from secure stratigraphy, but most lack that particular context. Are these finds without stratigraphic context to be ignored? If funding limitations are a reality, should one be digging without the means t...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Hello Circumspice,

Eye problem followed by UFO sighting? Inability to comprehend English? Ocular morse code? Neural failure? Looking for a date? Help, I have jaundice? My opinions rule? Go to hell?

Thanks for your "comment."
