History we Don’t Know

In a previous post I spoke about how we today seem to misunderstand our ancient knowledge. Here I want to get more into it and also push out some facts that might be interesting.

I am not a historian, archeologist, or anything of this science. It is just my interest and hobby, and like any hobby, we dive into all the books and papers we can collect, and suck in all the facts. Some would think, to what end? Honestly there is no end, i just want to know ALL.

First of all something I’ve realized years ago (and I’m not the only one) is that if you look at most or maybe close to all of our ancient civilizations, they all almost tell the same story. The same story of how they came to be. From the America’s to Africa, to the Middle East, all these stories have the same base, with different flavors. I guess one would think in the time of oral tradition, the same story was given to all at one point. But because of cultural influences, and environment, small parts of the story were edited to better apply to those specific people. The basic story all boils down too, someone came down from the sky and made humans, these same people then taught us the things we know today, left us guidelines on how to live, and returned to the sky. All also speak of a day that they would return for some sort of judgment. Most cultures in the America’s describe these people as being white skin color, which brought much confusion when the Spanish Christians first arrived to South America. The natives greeted them with open arms, offering them gifts, and showing them all that they have achieved, not knowing that these people were not the Gods, but in fact their downfall.

This is not the only similarity in these global ancient cultures; another similarity is the building styles of the time. We all know about the ancient pyramids of Giza, but these are not the only ones. There are ancient pyramids all over the world, in almost every continent. Here are a few: America’s, Africa, China, and even some in Europe.

To give an example:

–          Egypt : Pyramids of Giza

–          Mexico : Chichen Itza

–          Sudan : Nubian Pyramids (Meroe)

–          China : The White Pyramid, Qin Ling Shan mountains

–          North America : Platform Mounds

–          Europe : Bosnian Pyramids

Now one might think, ok an ancient culture centering in possibly Africa, might be able to spread its idea’s through Europe, the Middle East, and as far as Asia. But the problem is; how did they cross the Atlantic Ocean? Today we understand that cultures such as ancient Egypt did not possess any sort of sea vessels that would be able to travel that distance, and the same goes for Mesoamerican cultures. So my conclusions to this are, there was either some sort of bridge for them to cross over (and I don’t mean the Bering Strait), or there were civilizations before the ones we know today that settled in those locations, and were able to cross these vast distances for work or pleasure, or a combination of both.

The meaning of a bridge in my mind represents more the idea that there was a land mass between Africa and the America’s creating a bridge from which to cross and trade. In today’s ancient cultures there is not much evidence of trade between the Atlantic, but this might have taken place before the cultures we know today. Now many people know this theory as the Atlantis theory, meaning that the landmass that made the connection was the Atlantis culture itself. If this is true this would also explain the reason why all these cultures so far apart share such similarities. This is because Atlantis (from the stories) would have been the main “place to be” in those times. The main question here is, did it actually exist, and if so where did it go?

Another possiblilty:

There is much evidence that suggests that before the end of the last ice age, there were advanced and booming great civilizations. We find this evidence in stories as well as archeological evidence. As mentioned before, we have many under water pyramids and even more, entire cities at depths that could have only been above water in the last ice age when sea levels were lower. Now again I will give some dates to make this clearer, the last ice age is estimated to be 110,000 to 10,000 years ago. Now we today have modern humans leaving Africa at some 50,000 to 100,000 years ago, slowly moving into Europe and Asia as hunter gatherers. Now if we dismiss the scientific fact of age of man, and age of coming out of Africa, (as we cannot definitely say this is accurate. Every year we find new bones, and we have to change the story a bit, so there is uncertainty). Then we can say that maybe man is in fact older than we thought, and not only older as in, we were bush people in those times, but we were actually sophisticated, intelligent, people creating societies on a grand scale.

Now, how can one tie this in with everything else? (This is an idea shared by many people)  in the way past before the end of the last ice age there was a great civilization on earth, much like we have today, a civilization that was tied together. The global society collapsed for whatever reason be it war, disease, global warming, or something from outside earth.

Ice age Earth at glacial maximum. Based on:

(Now this is my idea) One interesting idea that comes to my mind is the natural glacial periods. Ok let me better explain myself: The last glacial period was 110,000 to 10,000 years ago. The Glacial Maximum period, meaning the time that it was the coldest, and the ice sheets covered most of North America, Europe, and Asia was 26,000 to 19,000 years ago. So in my math, this civilization would form….let’s guess here and say 20,000 years ago or older. What I’m trying to say here is that the civilizations must have been booming in a time before this Glacial Maximum period. If we say 19,000 years ago was the worst years, then we say these civilizations are 19,000 years and older. Ok, now to the next step. Because of this glacial maximum period many things happened on earth, the sea levels dropped, there was drought, and once lush places turned to desert. This can be a huge reason why this global civilization could have fallen. All civilizations would have existed with some sort of structure, if that structure were to collapse, people were going hungry, animals were dying, people would either begin to move to new locations, or revolt against the let’s say governments (who knows what kind of infrastructure they had). Most if not all people would have left the cities trying to fend for themselves, find food, and shelter from this ever worsening weather and environment. The only shelters that would seem best fitting would be caves:  a sort of survival mode would set in. They would have to hunt for food, and invent tools that they once had, but now must create once more with simple stones. The animal skins they would have to use for clothing as it is so cold, and in their boring days and nights sheltering from storms, they would paint on the cave walls. Sound familiar? No? I’m talking about the cave people. If looking at ourselves today and how spoiled we have become, we also would have difficulty surviving in the wild. Not everyone knows how to build shelters from the cold using what nature provides, not all of us would know how to build sophisticated tools. Because we at this point have everything made for us, and we don’t have to learn the crafts personally. Finally the world began to warm once more around 13,000 to 10,000 years ago. The ice sheets that covered the northern hemisphere began to recede, giving way to a new age.

Now this is where what we know today comes in: when the ice began to melt people slowly began to come out of their caves. They began to venture out in the world once again and slowly made little towns, which led to entire cities. Some of these people knew that it was important to carry on all that their ancestors knew in the past (before the glacial maximum). During the glacial maximum this ancient knowledge would be passed down orally through the families. Later, when they could once more create a structured society they began to document the knowledge of their past as best they could. And in this time is when we get the ancient Egyptian civilization, the Sumerians, the Norte Chico, all these civilizations that our science today calls ancient are just the remnants of an even more ancient civilization that was devastated. The best part is, is that we have proof of this, as most or all of these civilizations speak of this information being from a time long before their own. Meaning, the information that they documented, was information from their ancestors.

Now, one would think: if little ‘ol me can figure this out, why isn’t it in any of our history books. This is a good question, and it has room for many answers seeing as there are none. My best guess is that if all these things were to be branded as true fact, then the sections of this history of sky people visitations, and human creation by these sky people would also have to be branded as true fact. And seeing how through the years we have been made to think that these ancient myths are folklore and mother goose stories, we would understand that the human race is so much more than a natural accident of Mother Nature, or a creation of God. Society would flip over, and many people would be totally confused. We would not only realize that we are the children of some other race, but also realize that we aren’t alone. People will begin to either run around in fear like headless chickens, or begin to call these ancient creators and tell them to come back. We will begin to disobey our leaders, because at this point we will realize we are as small as them, and in fact our true leaders are in the sky somewhere. Society would fall apart, so this to me is the best reason I can think of to why this kind of information is being withheld.

Now believe me, I am not implying what I say is the truth, it is my best conclusion after many years of research (many years in my short 25 year life).

Thank you for reading, hope you got this far. Please leave a comment if you have a better idea, or will like to challenge mine. I am always open for discussion, we only learn more if we learn together.

    You have an interesting post, and some interesting ideas. But unfortunately, for all the wonder and mythology you release, i cannot subscribe to those ideas. I can see from your blog that you are rather interested in ancient mythology, and the ideas also surrounding E.T. life. The problem i have that you make an argument that is based on mythology. You first raise the point of a bridge, and call in Atlantis. The problem with atlantis, is that it just doesn’t fit on the map. You can join the continents, and there is no room for atlantis. Secondly from that, their was a “bridge,” and you mentioned it, it was the ice age. The ice covered most of the northern hemisphere, including the atlantic ocean. Man could of crossed, and did cross the land by using the thick stretches of ice. It is our burgeoning intelligence that causes us to look further than where we are. But this bridge you used for transferring mythological, or religious, ideas. And this may be true. Our ancestors would have been localised, and then split up, so it is possible that stories were transferred in some way. I don’t wholly agree with that, i wrote a post on this myself, i believe gods and mythology are rooted in the brains psychological wires, and that religion is a backfire of a previously useful part of the brain, now used in fantasy. ANd also that religion and gods can be explained in a simple manner, and actually be the effects of human want, suffering, and also not knowing. Man wasn’t thicker years ago, as you rightly said, but he also wasn’t as educated. It is only recently that we have truly understood DNA, Earth, the Solar System, the Sun, the Milky-Way, and the collection of galaxies local to us in the universe. Our technology has only just pushed us into understanding. People didn’t have the skills or technology to know, so they had to base it on what they knew, how to create things, and how they exist. They just push that a bigger human, god, created them. A simple psychological engineering. But as i said, i wrote more in depth on this in my post here:
    http://wp.me/p1F0z1-2g.
    You go on to mention how society would flip at being told we were sky people. Well firstly, they get on all right, sort of, believing that they are made by a sky god, so i don’t think it would be to different for them. The human minds almost wants us to be created, for reasons i think is utter nonsense. And secondly, to assume we were made by sky people, would be to assume that the theory of evolution is wrong, which it most certainly isn’t. WE can see microbial bacteria forming several billions of years ago, and since then fossils have been left of animals slowly changing and evolving. And wonderfully, and not at all surprisingly, human ancestors are there as well. It will take, from about 200,000 years ago before the first human like creatures existed. From there they evolved and branched off into the families of human we have. This includes ourselves, the homo sapiens, our close relative, homo neanderthals, and homo Erectus, and homo Habilis the list could go on, not for to long though. So we can see , not only in the fossil record, but in our DNA and other facets of information, that we have evolved from primordial chemistry. No sentient being, of any variety, esp. not alien, descended to earth to plant us. our ancestry goes back a long time, even through the dinosaurs. we are a product of 4.5 billion years of evolution, just like everything else. I do have a new post regarding alien life, which puts more of a perspective on things, and that can be found here: http://wp.me/p1F0z1-4z .
    But thank you for your post, it was an interesting read.

      Hi there occurrence of opinion:
      Wow long comment, but i thank you for giving your opinion on the subject.
      I don’t believe that technology is what brings understanding. I think it all starts with a curious mind, and a curious mind will always look for answers. For example, in the past when humans wanted to understand the cycles of time, night and day, seasons etc. They looked up at the stars and began to track it’s movements. No technology was needed really, just something to document on.

      Also about how society would flip over if we knew that a sky god created us…you mentioned “Well firstly, they get on all right, sort of, believing that they are made by a sky god, so i don’t think it would be to different for them….”. Good catch, but i still think God is a lot different than alien beings. We see god as this handsome, al power man, who in our eyes looks like we do. But a little green man is a whole different picture, but yes eventually we would get used to it seeing how we are being fed these alien stories for s many years now.

      I don’t disbelieve in evolution, I do think that humans actually did evolve from monkey people. But the link that cold be missing here is when these sky gods interrupted this evolution, and put there own hands in the mix. I think something like this is possible. Because for example (about evolution) today we are witnessing evolution first hand. There is a species of snake that is running into decline, it can’t find enough of it’s opposite sex to mate, so evolution stepped in and they are now turning into hermaphrodites. This is really interesting. But ok i’m blabbing on.

      Lastly about humans creating these gods themselves to ease the hardships and mysteries of life; This can be quite possible, i wasn’t there so all i can do is assume. I do believe that something is incorrect about religion, but i can’t put my finger on it’s entire meaning. I know that it is basically an idea being passed down and edited through generation and culture, but to the reasons of it’s beginnings? I like to think that it was once just an understanding that turned into a belief. Meaning it was just something that everyone knew to be true and what happened, but through the years it turned more into something like religion today. Have you read “The Age of Reason” – Thomas Paine?

      Thanks so much for your comment, really appreciate it.. LOVE discussions!

      • occurrence of opinion says :

        Thank you for your concise reply. I completely agree that technology is not what brings us understanding. But for a curious mind to fully understand, accurate instruments, even if rudimentary technology to todays standards, are needed to help make accurate ideas and hypothesis.this can be demonstrated with people believing the earth was the centre, because all the stars went around the earth when it turned. This was a common idea, and held for a long time. But it took the mind of one man, with instruments and invented technologies to actually assess otherwise. And today, our understanding of matter does come from the curiosity to ask what is matter, but it is the LHC which explores this for us. SO technology, even if basic is the way of finding out the answer, and to check it is correct. But yes, our inquisitive mind is the first to guess.
        Im glad you believe in evolution, i don’t know how people cant! The theory of evolution is slow progression and change, modifying and changing genes to suit an environment or challenge, like your hermaphroditic snakes. but as you’ve shown there, there is no guiding hand or intervener, on the the intervention of natural selection and evolutionary pressures, which are unconscious sculptors, for want of a better word. The same is for humans, we as a species are no different to a snake, a fish or a tree. we all evolved from common ancestors, and our happening, to me writing this is all by evolutionary chance, speciation and selective forces. So as i result, i find it near impossible for aliens to have travelled the light years across space, just to tinker with our common ancestor to the chimpanzee. It is also somewhat illogical, for our DNA has not changed drastically to any other species, it sits within what we would expect form a species which has evolved from a close relative of the chimpanzee. So biologically, we haven’t really got anything unique or special, which suggests no interference again. Our closest star is 4.2 light years away, which is a huge gap to travel across. So with regards to travelling here, or us into the universe, it is very difficult, and just so vast, to find this one place by chance, is very very unlikely, to the point of impossibility for an alien to interact in our evolution. And its flawed because it breaks the idea of evolution, which we are governed by.
        With regards to religion, its beginnings i explained in one of my posts that i linked to. It is a manifestation of mans flawed thinking and failed curiosities and answers. Man didn’t know what death was, so made up fantasises and linked them to the stars. Hence the stars in many cultures was the place of lost relatives. Heaven if you will. If they were in trouble they would think of their ancestors, who were potentially dead, but since they could remember them, they had this feeling of still being with them. religion at its origin is trying to answer the mysteries of life. But instead of scientific questioning, since science wasn’t known about as a practise, mysticism took hold, because thats all that there was to do, talk about what you see and know. You see stars, you know people who have died. There must be a link somewhere. At night its dangerous and lethal, so the stars, your dead ancestors, come out to watch over you. you can make all religions form these basic, confused and failed answers to the world and universe we live in. So in a sense of true, religion is not, it wasn’t even founded in truth, but was founded in the unknown and fear.
        Thank you for replying, i do like to discuss life, origins and science. I write philosophical science papers, my current one on the meaning of life. Heres a sneak peak, there isn’t one. But his is something i am very much interested in, mostly debunking and analysing. but i do enjoy peoples opinions and ideas.
        Thank you.
        O.O.O

    Thank you as well, and hahaha @ “meaning of life. Heres a sneak peak, there isn’t one”

    I guess the meaning of life is whatever makes you happy.
    How i see it is, life is to live, and at the end you die. It’s not hard or complicated, you just do it.

    🙂

    Thanks

    Hi, iam from cultofamonra, I really like your website, you have digged deep for information, and you come with concrete things. You might be interested in joining “temple illuminatus” its kinda for everyone with some sort of new age beliefs.

      Hey there, Neurotransmit.

      Thanks for the comment and the offer. I will have a look
      Think it’s important that we all band together with all kinds of idea’s to try and figure out all these questions with no answers, and all these facts with huge holes in them.

      Thanks again, and wish you lots of joy, happiness and peace in life 🙂
