American Scientist Online - We Are All Africans

Here is an interesting article by Pat Shipman at American Scientist Online - We Are All Africans.

The "out-of-Africa" theory has been around a long time, but it is only recently that the "multi-regionalists" are beginning to have to bow to the overwhelming evidence.

Neanderthal "face" found in Loire

The BBC has a story by Jonathan Amos,
BBC News Online science staff, entitled Neanderthal 'face' found in Loire

As written there:
>font color="#6D87A2">"A flint object with a striking likeness to a human face may be one of the best examples of art by Neanderthal man ever found, the journal Antiquity reports."

Ancient carved 'faces' found

BBC News has a story by Dr David Whitehouse, BBC News Online science editor, entitled Ancient carved 'faces' found.

The article states:
"A keen-eyed archaeologist claims to have found some of the oldest artwork ever - carved faces 200,000 years old."

The dating is preposterous, but we agree that the human images are actualy carved onto these stones.

There is also more on rock art in the article.

Stone Pages Archaeo News: Japanese rock image a fake

Stone Pages Archaeo News: Japanese rock image a fake

What is disturbing about this report is the archaeologist's statement that this artifact had never been investigated "since it was considered an important historical object".

Is that the standard in archaeology? The more important an object, the less it is studied?

I have several times recommended the reexamination of the Turin Canon by new thermoluminescence methods, since I am sure some of the pieces of this important historical papyrus have been mis-pasted during reconstruction. My suggestions have fallen on deaf ears in Egyptology circles, for the same reason as given above - the object is "too important" to study.

Is this good science? No.
