How far back can we go?

Really depends on how much you trust human memory and on what you can “find” on the ground.

Adam’s Calendar

I like Adam’s place, 75,000-200,000 years ago, just the right position for a Diaspora from the S.E. Asian archipelago, and there be gold there.

If like me you see a focus on lifting ancient artefacts, especially “written” artefacts, from Baghdad as a primary aim of the Iraq invasion 2003, think of it as Kelly’s Heroes without the nice outcome, you’ll know that more is known about our where froms and whys than we’ll get from prescribed education. The proscribed is always far more illuminating. One of the aims of the current oppressive “outlawing” of questions is to stop our inquisitive nature into deeper happenings I believe.

Anyway how far back?

Quite a long way it seems for lots of people who’ve not had their memories deliberately erased.

I love this kind of stuff, tucked away in sites of high strangeness.

University of Georgia researchers conclude: "Our interpretation of the geologic history of the Lake WaccamawLake Waccamaw is a relatively young lake, probably around 15,000 years old or less." (Unofficial site of the University of Georgia) area, the sediment record, and the relevant data of others is that

An official University of Georgia website states simply: "One theory of the origin of Carolina bays suggests that a meteor hit Earth thousands of years ago, breaking into pieces that made dents as they skipped across the planet's surface." (Source: the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory, 2001)

George Howard, one-time U.S. government ecology and land usage consultant, writes: "It is perfectly reasonable to conclude that if such a cataclysm occurred during a known time of known human habitation on the North American Atlantic Coastal Plain (approximately 10,000-15,000 BP) legends would be told to relate the horror to future generations." (Howard, 1997)

There are, in fact, numerous examples of such repercussions. For instance: "The local Indians are known as the 'People of the Falling Star,' and they believed the lake was created by a falling star, perhaps a great meteorite." (Waccamaw-Siouan Indian legend, Wild Shores, Exploring the Wilderness Areas of Eastern North Carolina. p.150)

What is one to think of this kind of legend? As an anthropologist I must give some degree of credence to the idea that some core event must have given rise to certain elements contained in the above legend. And there are plenty more of these which must be considered.”

Don’t tell me it’s all bollox, I reposte that all MSM is currently ultra bollox!!!
