The story of music is the story of humans (Article)

Like I've been saying,,,the reconstruction of musical instruments tells the story of mankind. The story it tells is far different from what 20th century scientists would have you believe.


Life above the clouds in the Andes, 7,000 years ago

So Peruvians had a civilization 7000 years ago higher than what scientist thought might be possible for humans.

I'm not surprised, scientist are a short-sighted lot.

Prediction: You're going to find more of these boys, in other places, but you may need climbers with Denisovan blood to get there.


Neanderthals attempted dentistry 130,000 years ago, believe scientists

Apparent evidence of attempts to use toothpick to deal with impacted tooth and misalignment of another one adds to impression Neanderthals were significantly more intelligent than previously thought

Full Read

My Comment: More intelligent than previously thought? Well I already KNEW...that they were much more intelligent than us, and it's been obvious for years. Not sure why science can't catch up to the obvious.


In Neanderthal DNA, Signs of a Mysterious Human Migration

All of my speculations on Neanderthals are being proven true. I better get to writing before they prove more of my theories before I've had a chance to blog them. I'll be posting about the Neanderthal human women slave-trade in the next couple of weeks, and the reason why the oldest European mtDNA haplogroup has the highest resistance to alcoholism due to childhood and sexual abuse, as well as the highest percentage of BDSM enthusiasts.

A lot of this stuff scientist could have known years ago by studying folklore and using the laws of logic and probability instead of the scientific method to assess the meaning of DNA, fossils, and artifacts.

In Neanderthal DNA, Signs of a Mysterious Human Migration

With fossils and DNA, scientists are piecing together a picture of humanity’s beginnings, an origin story with more twists than anything you would find at the movie theater....


This conch shell trumpet would be heard far and wide in the ancient world

New study on Neolithic sound from the Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports:

It’s not hard to imagine a gladiator fight in early Rome, or Polynesians navigating the oceans thousands of years ago on outrigger canoes. But how our ancestors heard ancient instruments is harder to conjure...Conch Shell


Telegraph: Europe was the birthplace of mankind, not Africa, scientists find

This is an interesting story from the Telegraph with important info, but even if the direct ancestor of the first hominids or the genus homo did live in Europe, it doesn't mean they only lived in Europe. The part of Europe in question, the Mediterranean, was as much a part of Africa as it was a part of Eurasia at the time. The direct ancestor of this species, named Graecopithecus, came to the  Mediterranean from Africa, and the ancestor of all higher primates arose in Africa before it ever reconnected with Eurasia. Finally, if Graecopithecus indeed evolved into the Genus Homo, it did so outside of Europe and developed the Mode 2 lithic technology, which some consider a benchmark of being "Homo," before reentering Europe half a million years later.

So Europe played a transient role at best during a particular climactic period. For most of human evolution Europe was a backwater, and I would bet good money that either Graecopithecus or a sibling species lived in Asia Minor at the same time as the European version.  We don't have all of the data because Asia Minor is notoriously bad at preserving fossils.

Europe was the birthplace of mankind, not Africa, scientists find

The history of human evolution has been rewritten after scientists discovered that Europe was the birthplace of mankind, not Africa. 
Currently, most experts believe that our human lineage split from apes around seven million years ago in central Africa, where hominids remained for the next five million years before venturing further afield.
But two fossils of an ape-like creature which had human-like teeth have been found in Bulgaria and Greece, dating to 7.2 million years ago.

Neanderthals Chose Our Women Over their Own (and it led to their extinction)

For years I've been saying neanderthals stole homo sapin sapiens women and traded them all the way up to Siberia, long before our males ever set foot in Europe.Science has caught up, and  here is the proof:
Keeping pace with new developments in the field of human evolution these days is a daunting prospect. It seems as though every few weeks there’s an announcement of exciting new findings from hominin fossils, or the recovery of an ancient genome that significantly impacts our understanding of our species’ history.
The best way to keep up is by regularly revisiting and reassessing a few core questions. When and where did our species first appear? How and where did we migrate? What was our relationship to our (now-extinct) hominin relatives? What evolutionary and cultural factors influenced our histories? How do new findings change the answers to these questions? Are they generally accepted by the relevant community of experts, or are they provisional or controversial? 
This month’s challenge is to understand the significance of a recently publishedNeanderthal mitochondrial genome from a femur that was excavated in 1937 from the Hohlenstein-Stadel (HST) cave site in southwestern Germany. This new genome brings the total number of Neanderthals from whom we have genetic information to eighteen. ..

The Maya and Bamboo

The Maya keep looking more and more like people with origins in Indonesia...


Man in Australia Pushed Back 20 Thousand Years (Again)

Looks like we'll be re-examining the Mungo bones again. How long will it be until the OTHER population of Homo Sapien Sapiens from outside our gene pool will be  common knowledge?
