Tonight I watched a program on the Learning Channel entitled "Atlantis Reborn". (Apparently it had aired in Britain two years ago) TLC described it as follows: "Search the heavens for evidence that the lost city of Atlantis was the cradle of civilization. Long disputed by archaeologists and historians, new evidence breathes life into the theory that the sophistication of Atlantis

Ever since the anouncement in May of side-scan sonar images off the western tip of Cuba in the Yucatan Strait which apparently outline a huge ancient city in 2200 feet of water, I have waited anxiously for more updates. I am sure many of you have too. If this discovery is real, then everything changes-not just academic history but also how we view ourselves. Has Graham or anybody else out there p

Interesting but the sample size is much too small to make a really meaningful analysis, also the slow mutation rates mean getting an accurate estimate of the rate is very difficult. An interesting study and it should be considered but it needs to be expanded before it can be shown to be accurate.

This is a very North-American viewpoint. There has always been evidence in South America for pre-clovis colonisation in sities such as Monte Verde and Pedro Furada (not sure of the spelling) and the evidence from Monte Verde suggests initial colonisation at 30,000 BP. Paul

Good point Rob The Chinese dragons pose an interesting question. Although they are similar to european dragons there are definite differences, so i was wondering if we missaply the term. Does anyone know the literal translation of the chinese word for dragon? The feathered serpent is also intriguing; anyone have any other thoughts, the meteorite is an interesting idea but i am sure there are o

I'll be able to get the exact references tommorrow. Sorry just took the books back to the library. I think if you look in Lewin's Principles of human evolution you will be able to find references but i'll get back to you. Cheers Paul

The snake is indeed one of the most potent symbols to be found in the world. Andrew Collins is excellent on this subject. If you look at the legends of much of North and South America the snake plays a prominent part as well as being important in as varied places as Egypt, Akkadia, Assyria, ancient India, China and reaching out into the Pacific islands. It is tempting to see a common origin to th

Good point Lev sorry i didn't explain myself very well. The problem with genetics is the rate of mutation is not accurately known. Mitochondrial Dna evidence only shows that humans occurred first between 140,000 and 240,000 years ago. The fossil evidence we have suggests thst it is near to 140,000 years ago but new evidence could push this back. Now with the case of the bottleneck the dating

Nice idea but i think some of those similarities are a bit too vague and nebulous to make a valid comparism. Also many of these peoples tenets were in opposition to each other. Good idea needs a bit of work

The genetic evidence only shows one bottleneck around 150,000 years ago. Indeed this is also near to the time when anatomically modern humans first appeared so the bottleneck is not surprising. Even a small localised event in Africa could have caused it as Humans were only present on this continent at this time. Paul

Point one radiocarbon dating is now a lot more reliable than it used to be. You can now directly date very small samples with accelerator mass spectrometer versions of the dating. It is still not ideal but it is pretty good. Also dates from Africa are gotten from dating the layers of volcanic rock laid down in eruptions this can be dated highly accurately and is very reliable. Also you cannot say

Sorry to rain on everyones parade but that study was not refering to Homo Sapiens. Instead it corresponds to the emergence of the earliest hominids from Africe. Later around 150,000 years ago (+/- 25,000) archaic homo Sapiens left Africa taking quite a while longer to evolve untill Homo Sapiens Sapiens came to be. Also just because in our historical period civilisation arose swiftly after the ic

I don't remember if it is stated explicitly in Fingerprints of the Gods or Message of the Sphinx, but what is the generally accepted date for the transition of Pisces to Aquarius? Also, has anyone here studied gematria? Thanks, Paul

This is true, the densest populetion reached by a hunter-gatherer society is among the native americans of northwest america and this was still only quite a small population. Also in historical times only societies with farming have developed sophisticated technology as well as cities and effective administration. Paul

What about the genetic evidence that millet was first domesticated in the Huang Ho valley of china around 5000BC. Also what studies show this evidence i would like to find out more about them. Thanks a lot, Paul

What did an earlier civilisation eat if you consider that all foods used in agriculture now have only been domesticated once and that not before around 4-5000BC I ask this because otherwise how were population densities high enough to support a society with any form of centralised governmnet and the ability to develop any high level of technology
