Hi Lew
I apologise to all for the slow response - Louise and I are completing a 10 week tour of the USA and Germany today - often withour internet on the road.

The dating of ancient sites and events is a tricky thing - in South Africa we have overwhelming evidence from patina growth on tools and artefacts that we are dealing with activity well over 100,000 years ago. Continuous evidence points to the mining of gold on a scale never seen before or anywhere else on Earth. What I have found is that virtually all ancient civilisations can be traced to southern Africa - this includes the Phoenicians, Egyptians, Dogon, Romans, Dravidians, Sumerians, and now even the INCA. A large statue of a "Viracocha-like" deity was found in a paved tunnel about 20 metres deep in the town of Carletonville - 100 km west of Johannesburg, circa 1971, by a mine rescue team while testing their equipment. As they decsended about 20 metres deep into a sink-hole, they found one of the sides caved in. They cleared the the rubble to find an entrance to a paved tunnel. Several metres into the darkness they found a large statue of Viracocha, virtually identical to those found in South America. They got out of there as quickly as they could, never relating this story to anyone, until Mr Dicks shared this with me around January 2013. I was the first one he ever told about their experience, fearing ridicule from others, should he do so.

So at this stage I still feel that the first large scale gold mining on Earth was initiated by the Anunnaki in South Africa - after which it spread to other parts of the world. The timelines of this spread are fuzzy but the so-called flood event may have played a critical role in all of this. Including the destruction of the gold mining empire of ENKI in Southern Africa. The other event that must have played a key role in this exodus from Africa was the super-volcano in Sumatra, at lake Toba some 75,000 years ago. There is ample geological evidence that this event had a profound effect on southern Africa, that would have made life very unloeasant there in the years that followed - forcng the inhabitants to move away from there.

Finally - we should stop thinking of the ancients as marriners and sailors - but rather a group of advanced beings that had knowledge of advanced technology well eyond our comprehension today. They knew how to fly, defy gravity and levitate objects. The irrefutable scientific evidence for this lies in the stone circles of South Africa.
