Project Stardust: Accessing the Cosmic Hall of Records

BY WILLIAM HENRY

Where did we come from? Is there life in the interstellar void? Are there beings that travel the “crystal halls” of God’s mansion beyond our solar system? Was life brought here in drops of water by comets as ancient myths indicate? Are we really made of alien stars? What forces prompted the universe to form the primordial cosmic particles floating in the sacred ocean into Paris Hilton? These are not questions in a debate between evolution and Intelligent Design. These are the complicated ques­tions asked…

Archaeology & Archaeologists in “Planet of the Apes”

BY MICHAEL CREMO

In September 2007, I presented a paper at the annual meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists. This year, it was held in Zadar, a beautiful old town on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. I gave the paper in a section on “in­vented civilizations” and what they can tell us about the practice of archaeology. I chose to speak on the invented civ­ilization depicted in Planet of the Apes. In the 1968 film version of Planet of the Apes, an American astronaut named Taylor, played…

Happy Birthday, Charlie

By Michael Cremo

This year, 2009, is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, credited with founding the theory of evolu­tion by natural selection. It is also the 150th anniversary of the publication of his book The Origin of Species. Darwin was a theology student who never graduated from university, never got a Ph.D., and never worked as a professional scientist. He was an amateur naturalist. Nevertheless, his books and papers came to the attention of the scientific world, and became quite influential. I spent Darwin’s…

Forbidden Paleontology

BY MICHAEL CREMO

My book Forbidden Archeology documents archaeological evidence for extreme human antiquity. This evidence contradicts the current evolutionary theories of human origins, which tell us that humans like us came into exis­tence between 100,000 and 150,000 years ago. The evidence is also consistent with the histories of humankind re­corded in the ancient Sanskrit writings of India, particularly the Puranas, which tell us that humans have existed since the very beginning of life on earth. I have given lectures on the archaeological evidence for extreme human antiquity…

Fixing the Human-Origins Education Problem

BY MICHAEL CREMO

On May 24, 2006, I addressed the Faculty of Education, School of Education Studies of the University of Kwazu­lu-Natal, Edgewood Campus, South Africa. In attendance were professors of education and officers of the Provincial History Committee. Here are some excerpts from the address: In recent times, archaeologists have become interested in seeing what the science of human origins and antiquity looks like from different cultural perspectives. My investigations in the field of human origins and antiquity are in­spired to some extent by my studies in…

Galactic Alignments & More

BY MARSHA OAKS

This publication has been accused of making “conventional thought” a kind of whipping boy. The implication would be that this “conventional thought” is itself innocent in the matter and is getting a bad rap from the likes of us. We, on the other hand, convinced that the Conventionals are not exactly giving us the straight story, wonder why. Could it be that they are affected by intergalactic forces? In light of our first review this time, the latter seems a possibility worth considering. The other…

The Still Unexplained

BY MARSHA OAKS

If the many unexplained anomalies which fascinate most of us, the three categories featured in this group of reviews usually gets top billing. We are talking about Atlantis, Crop Circles and UFOs. In the case of all three, despite the fact that the mainstream sci­entific establishment refuses to take them seriously, powerful evidence which cannot be explained away persists and, in fact, as se­rious researchers are learning, new evidence continues to emerge on all three fronts. ADVANCED ICE AGE CIVILIZATIONS AND ATLANTIS Produced by Dr….
