Bosnian 'Pyramids' Redux

A geomorphologist I know has recently had an exchange of correspondence with Dr. Aly Barakat, which is at: http://irna.lautre.net/A-corresponde...r-Barakat.html There's quite a bit of other stuff on this on her website. She has also partially translated an article in a recent issue of BiH Dani, whic...

You, or anyone else, can define "archeology" any damn way you want. But unless you can bring the inferences from sociology, psychology, & genetics to table to analyze artifacts, and thereby give people today a greater sense of what their own ancestors were like, they dont giva fuck. And in my opini...

Some archaeology would be nice. Telling us that some people were 'certainly' like something isn't terribly helpful. Some of us draw our understanding from a myriad of somewhat ambiguous sources, and some from what they regard as literal, verified authority. And archaeologists from the material cult...

I have so many objections to just the first page- http://www.cycleoftime.com/articles_view.php?codArtigo=33 That I would not bother with the rest which must therefore be based on flawed premises. I've tried dialoguing with with posters on this on usenet, but not gotten any feedback, much less attem...

I meant I was surprised that your studies were old world based rather than new world. I can understand subsequent specialising in a given sector of course but it struck me as backward looking by Yale. A bit like British colonials teaching African children European history rather than their own. Oh,...

That does surprise me Doug, personally I don't give a damn if 'Adam' was American, Chinese, or Polenesian, just as long as we find out and America must be seen as the place to research. If only to disprove an early history. The history of mankind is all men's heritage. Why the surprise? People have...

Ok, I think I see now.
Of course, the question, is it a core? (ducks and runs) :-)

This is from the NOSAMS link you provided Doug. A sample in which 14C is no longer detectable is said to be "radiocarbon dead." Fossil fuels provide a common example. They are derived from biomass that initially contained atmospheric levels of 14C. But the transformation of sedimentary organic debr...

I'm glad to hear it beag, but I'll bet there are some that don't. Over here of course it is a non subject! I've only managed to trace one article for British consumption on the subject for some years. That's not surprising. Even in the US it will be a minority interest for archaeologists. Which sho...

Well, I hope everyone had a nice day. I'm just getting back in. As for the pre-Clovis debate, it's over for me. At the Topper site this spring, I was shown all the proof I need by one of the Archaeologists working there. Down on the Pleistocene terrace is an excavated hole 15 ft. deep. There - plai...

No Doug, I am not rejecting anything of that on a broad basis. Frankly I don't know who Weber is and I used the article to demonstrate the closed mind that tends to exist amongst experts in numerous disciplines. But when you see statements like the part I underlined both the veracity of the individ...

Loved the comment about the net sinkers Beag. On another thread I pointed out to Doug some reasons for my doubts on some 'Experts' and your post is typical of the lame excuses that get trotted out. If their 'Spin' ability is a guide to their intelligence they should give up both jobs! :lol: It is c...
