Actually, they continued their journey into the Americas, and THEN their skull shapes changed apparently. Very unsatisfying, I understand. Elongated skulls and a mythical underwater Mayan cave

It seems like you are posing a riddle. aswan = sanskrit for horse? samudra = sanskrit for body of water? hippopotamus = greek for "water horse" "water horse" = samudra + aswan ?

I know this isn't about your OP but DNA analysis in the last decade has shown that certain dolichocephalic paleoindian fossils belong to the same DNA groups as current Native Americans who are now extremely brachiocephalic. link This supports the idea that skull shape has nothing to do with genetic lineage. A study of isolated English villages also supports this idea. There is no working

Wow, you bring up a loaded topic. I may have a foot in both camps, but not completely in either. I have a chemistry degree but now work in medical IT and so I am trained to use that type of logic and problem solving. But I often find myself irate with mainstream "skeptics" because I think they misuse logic towards their own ends. But then again I also get frustrated with people at the

Yes, combined with this 2017 discovery it is clear that hss dispersed much earlier than thought previously, possibly as soon as they arose in southern Africa. +300k old skull found in Morocco This 2018 discovery pushes the first modern human diaspora back much further then the previous 100kya estimate. 177-194k year old hss fossil in Israel And this DNA evidence suggest the hss lineag

The Natufian culture was known to plaster skulls like seen in Jericho Man. The following is a personal theory of mine based on research that I'm doing on my own. My theory is that the Natufian culture migrated from Israel/Jordan and took the practice of wild rye agriculture into northeastern Syria near to Göbekli Tepe. I believe that they influenced the rise of domestic wheat agriculture i

I agree with your opinion about not correlating skull shape with race or migration. A 2007 study in England proved that skull shapes changed over time within isolated populations with no gene admixture. Thanks for posting this. --Andy

Having grown up on a farm, these have always seemed to me to be simply bags for sowing grain by hand. Above is a mechanical version with a crank handle like the one that my father told me that my grandfather had used, called a broadcaster.

“We believe he has disqualified himself from this lifetime appointment and must step aside immediately,” the group, which represents about 30 million U.S. parishioners, wrote in a statement. “During his appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Judge Kavanaugh exhibited extreme partisan bias and disrespect toward certain members of the committee and thereby demonstrated that he possesses

More than 500 law professors from nearly 100 law schools around the nation have signed a letter to the U.S. Senate to say that the volatile temperament Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh displayed on Thursday as he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee disqualifies him from sitting on the nation’s highest court. “We regret that we feel compelled to write to you to provide o

"The basic principles that underscore the Senate’s constitutional duty of advice and consent on federal judicial nominees require nothing less than a careful examination of the accusations and facts by the FBI," wrote Robert Carlson, president of the ABA, the nation's largest organization of lawyers, in a letter addressed to Sen.

For the rest of the world, President Donald Trump’s America is a laughing stock, not a leader. That was the takeaway from Trump’s speech to the 2018 United Nations general assembly. Trump opened his speech the same way he opens his campaign rallies, TV interviews, and probably conversations with every visitor he meets: “In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almos

He's learned the art of the con by trial and error and having rich daddy bail him out time and time again. So now he's a one-trick pony running the same scams over and over. And the right wingers fall for it every time, so why not.
