Evidence of New Human Species Discovered in a Cave in the Philippines

Philippines (April 10, 2019) Researchers working in a cave in the Philippines claim to have found a new, previously unknown species to add to human history. Remarkably this hominin was probably less than four feet high and had some of the characteristics of modern people but also anatomical features from much earlier hominins. It is believed that the discovery will transform the understanding of our evolution. In recent years there have been a series of finds of early humans in the Philippines. The latest was made by archaeologists as they wered digging in the ‘rocky floor of Callao Cave on Luzon island’ according to A team of experts found a number of fossils that are unlike anything else in the world. They were unearthed by a team of experts led by Professor Philip Piper, from the Australian National University.

Mysterious Stone Circles Allegedly Build by Neanderthals

France (May 25, 2016) Mysterious rings crafted from stalagmites were discovered in the recesses of Brunquel Cave in southwest France. Scientists reported in Nature that these structures are approximately 176,000 years old and were undoubtedly made by Neanderthals.

Nearly 400 stalagmites were positioned to create one large circular formation measuring almost 22 feet in diameter. Cracked areas of red and black discoloration indicate that fires had been lit atop the stalagmites, and charred bits of bone were found near the smaller circle.

Scientists Discover World's Oldest Tools

New York (May 20, 2015) Scientists working in the desert badlands of northwestern Kenya have found stone tools dating back 3.3 million years, long before the advent of modern humans, and by far the oldest such artifacts yet discovered. The tools, whose makers may or may not have been some sort of human ancestor, push the known date of such tools back by 700,000 years; they also may challenge the notion that our own most direct ancestors were the first to bang two rocks together to create a new technology.

The discovery is the first evidence that an even earlier group of proto-humans may have had the thinking abilities needed to figure out how to make sharp-edged tools. The stone tools mark "a new beginning to the known archaeological record," say the authors of a new paper about the discovery, published today in the leading scientific journal Nature.

Discovery of 400,000-year-old Hominin in Spain

Scientists reported the discovery of ancient human DNA from a femur fossil dated at approximately 400,000 years unearthed at the Sima de los Huesos excavation in Spain. Complete story at:

Michael Cremo's commentary on this story:

Over the past couple of weeks, numerous people have sent me links to articles about DNA research results from a femur discovered at the Sima de los Huesos in Spain. Most of the headlines to the articles are variations of this: "400,000-year-old human DNA poses mystery." Many people know that I believe humans like us existed further back in time than most scientists are now prepared to accept. Most scientists believe that humans like us first appeared less than 200,000 years ago. So, perhaps thinking that the reports from Spain support my ideas, people send me the links. However, we have to understand that when scientists and science reporters use the word "human" in connection with the discovery from Spain, they do not mean humans like us. They mean more primtive human ancestors or relatives of human ancestors. Most scientists attribute the 400,000-year-old bones from Sima de los Huesos to early Neandertals, or to Homo heidelbergensis, a European relative of the apeman Homo erectus. But in my book Forbidden Archeology I documented fossil evidence showing that humans like us were present in Europe at 400,000 years ago. For example, in the nineteenth century, the French archeologist Jacques Boucher des Perthes found an anatomically modern human jaw in his excavations at the Moulin Quignon site in Abbeville, in northeastern France. According to modern geologists, the formation there is about 400,000 years old. So there is evidence that humans like us were existing 400,000 years ago in Europe, but the recent evidence from Spain is not it—at least not from what we know from the current reports.

Michael Cremo makes worldwide headlines

Reactions to Forbidden Archeology
range from glowing praise...

"One of the landmark intellectual achievements of the late 20th century"
Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods caustic ridicule

"Your book is pure humbug and does not deserve to be taken seriously
by anyone but a fool"
Richard Leakey, Anthropologist

Mr. Cremo's book has certainly turned the heads of the Scientific Establishment. After NBC?s Mysterious Origins of Man television special aired in 1995, Academia exploded in protest, lobbying the FCC to ban NBC and its sponsors from the airwaves. However, it is significant that censorship attempts failed to prevent the first program of its kind from broadcasting alternative views on human evolution via a major television network.
