A very incisive and perceptive post Ananda....,if a little immoderate in its moderation;- which is to say: if one is going to be moderate or skeptical....., why not go the whole hog and transform your particular prejudice into something more than a mere bias; into something glorious, something transcendental...., something- how shall I say..., something ABSOLUTE; If there were only ABSOLUTE b

" what is acceptable in academic work is not so much the topic but the way it is approached". Surely there must be some selective criteria applied to 'topics'...; if not it would subjugate 'approach' to simply being an accessory after the fact? But if not, should not the emphasis then correctly be updated to -"approached and resolved"? HoHo

Laird, As regards 'pointed' pyramids and 'flat-topped' pyramids..., could not the purpose of each form have been a product of the culture that produced it? I would suggest that the 'pointed' pyramids of Egypt were an aspiration- using the pyramidal form- to reach out, to communicate with the stars; an acknowledgement that our origins, our destinies, were irrevocably linked with the 'wheels of h

This certainly would be a viable possibility AO. I don't have a fixed point of view..., but I have serious reservations about the 'out of africa' scenario as regards human evolution- and other sundry accoutrements such as the 'domestic canine'. best, Fiasco.

Hi Ananda, I'm not thinking of disease. I'm thinking of external influences..., a confluence of celestial alignments. I would suggest that the variety of bird, animal and human life[ and language ] on every portion of the earth's surface is determined by an archetypal new confluence of heavenly bodies...; and I don't think the results are accidental or unpredetermined. There are of course oth

Hi Ananda, I realise the transition wasn't straight to AB- just cutting corners. But you are suggesting it was adaption to diet that caused these transitions; I consider that possible...., but by no means the only scenario; and to my mind, not the most likely. best, HoHo.

Hi, I would suggest the jury- the impartial observer as opposed to the judiciary- is still out on the concept that homo-sapiens evolved from a 'singularity' on the African continent some 130,000 years ago. If we- as the judiciary would have it- evolved from a species of Ape..., there is nothing to suggest that similar mutations might not have occurred on other continents where apes already exis

Hi Elizabeth, I applaud your sentiments here, but I think the debate/discussion as waged on the two boards you mention is not fully representative of the the historical argument. In the wider of view of human affairs the 'alternative' idea- one that is not generally accepted- usually supplants the orthodox or accepted tradition; sometimes this transition is radical and complete-a flat earth to

Hi Joanne, ...............I've just been out there, and guess what: there's not a sign of it anywhere. Not a smidgin.., a vestige.., a soupcon.., not one single minute particle of it out there anywhere.

You have succinctly summed the situation up Sunsword[ good moniker by the way ]. So why....., why do we have someone like Joanne- obviously an 'authority' on Ancient Egypt, possibly even an infollectual..., finding it so difficult to even support one 'fact' supposedly arrived at by her eminent colleagues.., as to the purpose, the origin, the manner of construction of those enigmatic monuments o

Joanne declares: "We do know who built the pyramids, the Sphinx, and some of the temples. We do know how a number of them were built. We do know why they were built. We do know when they were built..................." If these were 'facts' as you suggest, there would be demonstrable PROOF of one or all of the above allegations. By 'demonstrable proof' I mean something akin to the

Hi Steve, The 'orthocracy' are shackled by a curious dichotomy of their own creation called 'hyper-diffusionism'. On the one hand they cannot accept the possibility that similar cultural developments might concievably stem from a common source; on the other..., they believe implicitly that all distribution of every species originates from a common location in time and place- if this is not 'diff

Good question Coggas. ...., to which one might also add: when does one become an 'authority'? There is a certain modesty about being a 'researcher', as though to say one hasn't yet quite 'arrived'.; also perhaps a little pretension if what one is really doing is just 'perusing'. I suppose it could come down to where you are doing your 'perusing'; if you're doing it in a municipal library...,

Hi Dennis, It is unlikely the Maya- the adherents of 2012- had any knowledge of the christian calender.

Hi j-, Would not an expanding and contracting earth- a terretial heartbeat- account for the same phenomena as Hapgood's "shifting crust"? It certainly accounts for the possibility of dinosaurs- even humans- growing to gigantuan size; and thus would accomadate some of our most inexplicable phenomena such as the building blocks at Baalbeck etc. I am not tring to undermine Hapgood's c

Dear Warwick, This post was not intended to insult, to disparage, to pour scorn...., merely to be concise about a debate which- in the absence of any facts other than the actual existence of the sphinx itself- seems about to descend into some sort of trivia style parlour game. I will endeavour to be less concise. To try and identify what is left of the Sphinx visage... ,after having half its fa

To attempt to align what remains of the face of the Sphinx with any of these Pharoahs- particularly Khafre- is an absurdity; the only similarity resides in the headress. The one identifiable feature of the Sphinx, its presence, is that it is a FEMALE entity; and the body of the Sphinx is certainly a feline: not a lion; perhaps a Cheetah...., perhaps a truly mythical creature. These observation

Hi Noah, I can understand the scepticism of your other respondents here, but I can also appreciate how 'gobsmacked' - as he says- this fellow must have been coming up with this kind of material[ btw: I think there's another guy out there trying to muscle in on his turf- I believe he's just sneaked off to those amazon headwaters ]; but he's a little short on 'hard evidence'.
