Elaine Morgan says we evolved from aquatic apes

TED
Published on Jul 31, 2009

www.ted.com

Elaine Morgan is a tenacious proponent of the aquatic ape hypothesis: the idea that humans evolved from primate ancestors who dwelt in watery habitats. Hear her spirited defense of the idea — and her theory on why mainstream science doesn’t take it seriously.

OMG I’m in love with this lady!

I, too, am a supporter of the aquatic apes in our history, you see.

Furthermore, I support the existence of an aquatic species who split off and started when we did. This species is still around today. Possibly having something to do with the ubiquitous USOs.

Dig  it. They’re out there!

 

 

A Field Guide to Shells and Lifeforms on Mars, part 1

MartianLifeforms
Published on Oct 23, 2015

www.martianlifeforms.com

This is a video by Tim Beech, the owner of the now 22 year old Life On Mars website established in 1997 as The Peculiar Rocks of Mars. There’s only a single video on his YouTube channel, this one, so it looks like the series he speaks of never happened.

Maybe Tim just got disillusioned in his quest? These things are unknown. But this video has mighty few views for being up for four years.

I think the similarity in pattern and shape is quite interesting, but they could actually be just rocks in odd lighting… So many minerals form perfect geometric shapes here at home, so minerals would on Mars, too. Although these examples are not rigidly similar at all, some are rounded and well, it could be something. So there.

Yes… the more I think about it the minerals are out, (noting that rocks are lumps of minerals), but although “I Want To Believe,” it might be that while it’s certainly plausible, it is certainly not probable.

The movement clip (see sidebar) that Tim discovered does still intrigue me, though. The resolution he was working with for all of these shown here is just barely adequate for pleasant viewing, let alone analysis, so, yeah, illusion and pareidolia abound. Having said that, however, note that a few of them are still — of interest. And we mustn’t forget the myriad of fantastic “rocks” that our modern rovers have happened upon. And driven past.

Hey, here’s a link to Tim’s Martian Lifeforms forum. Not a lot there, though.

Be well.

Cold ashes of an old camp fire
A scrap of cloth caught on a briar
Could these be us? Were we once here?
When did we both disappear?

I hear a voice among the trees
Maybe just the nighttime breeze
Maybe it’s the wild things roaming free
Wild like you, wild like me
Calling now to you and me
We must follow, can’t you see? – come with me

CHORUS:
Forget the city and its false lights
They steal your dreams, they steal your nights
Leave your troubles, your worldly goods
And run with me, run with me
to the dark woods

Footprints in a hidden cave
Mementoes time chose to save
Initials carved in the frost
How did we ever get so lost?

Can’t you see? It’s all so clear
No one else has ever been here
Except for the wild things roaming free
Wild like you, wild like me
Calling now to you and me
And we must follow, can’t you see? – run with me

CHORUS

In the dark we have no fear
In the woods no one can hear
Except for the wild things roaming free
Wild like you, wild like me
Only the wild things, here to see
Wild like you, wild like me

CHORUS

(Lyrics and music: Mary James, Jean James)

Nice and Neat!

And it seems that Mary has developed a signature sound.

This is certainly an excellent thing.

 

 

I apologize. This is what I get when I am simultaneously on the jazz and completely exhausted and losing my mind.

It is also 4:20am, so, it may have been inevitable. At the moment I cannot see why it broke.

I may need help.

peace
be well

Reblogging from my friend Mike Campbell’s blog, EarhartTruth.wordpress.com, simply because I want more people to see it and learn the truth about what happened to her, a story that came to world attention in 1960 in the Californian press. It was quickly buried and there has been tenaciously relentless suppression even from the first days when it all started.

Smithsonian rejects my comment on Earhart story

By earharttruth on August 6, 2019

As if we need more evidence that Smithsonian magazine is among the vanguard in the U.S. government’s ongoing program of deceit in the Earhart disappearance, the following is submitted for your information.  (Boldface and italics emphasis mine throughout.)

On Aug. 2 a reader sent me the link to the Smithsonian’s July 31, 2019 screed, Why the Much-Publicized Mission to Find Amelia Earhart’s Plane Is Likely to Come Up Empty,” subheaded, “The explorer who discovered the ‘Titanic’ is searching for the lost aviator. A Smithsonian curator doesn’t think he’ll find it.”

Here we have the incompetent advising the accomplished and misguided.  Dorothy Cochran, the Smithsonian’s Air and Space curator, has taken over from Tom Crouch as that institution’s selected mouthpiece about all things Earhart, but this is the same gibberish we heard from Crouch, and will continue to hear from the Smithsonian until Judgment Day.  We know that the famed Bob Ballard, who found the Titanic, is out of his depth in the Earhart search, but we certainly don’t need an overpaid PR hack to tell us why.

smith cover

The January 2015 issue of Smithsonian magazine, with its classic photo of Amelia and the standard shyster hype about “new clues” that aren’t new or clues, but the usual flat-out lies glorified as mainstream “theories.”

The author of the current Smithsonian drivel, one Brigit Katz, writes that “Dorothy Cochran, a curator at the aeronautics department of the Air and Space Museum, doubts that the upcoming expedition to Nikumaroro, will turn up any tangible signs of Earhart’s plane.  It’s highly unlikely, she says, that Earhart and Noonan ever ended up on the island.

Cochran, who in a better world would be arrested for impersonating an Earhart expert, is right about that, but not for any legitimate or coherent reason.  In her government-apologist role, Cochran remains stuck back in July 1937, connected at the hip to the Navy-Coast Guard verdict that the Earhart Electra landed on the water within 120 miles of Howland Island — volumes of evidence to the contrary be damned.

As a trusted, highly placed representative of the U.S. establishment, that’s her story and she’s sticking to it, just as her predecessor so stubbornly did.  But does the reality-challenged Cochran really believe the garbage that she’s forced to disgorge by her masters, given, that is, that she’s ever read anything at all except her marching orders?

The “crashed-and-sank” canard, a natural assumption without a single trace of supporting evidence in 1937, was soon overwhelmed by evidence and events, including the 1944 discovery of the Earhart Electra in a hangar on Saipan, if not long before.  “Crashed and sank” became so ludicrous and untenable by the mid-1980s that it forced the Powers That Be to commandeer the current Earhart lie, the only slightly less ridiculous Nikumaroro theory, dressed up as a “hypothesis,” by its TIGHAR proponents.

Unknown to most, the Nikumaroro fiasco is itself a third-hand idea initially conceived by famed inventor Fred Hooven, who presented his research paper, Amelia Earhart’s Last Flight at the Amelia Earhart Symposium at the Smithsonian Institute’s National Air and Space Museum in June 1982.  Hooven called it the “McKean-Gardner Island landing theory,” but was later convinced by Fred Goerner that Amelia and Fred Noonan could not have possibly landed there.  (See Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last, pages 56, 303 and 304 for more.)

Note also that unlike the National Geographic story touting Ballard’s upcoming visit to Nikumaroro, which mentioned Saipan in passing, the Smithsonian story assiduously avoids anything that hints at the hated truth.

Though Jerry Adler’s January 2015 Smithsonian cover story,Will the Search for Amelia Earhart Ever End?,” attacked and attempted to undermine Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Lastwith a flotilla of lies, at least Smithsonian editors referenced the book along with their litany of falsehoods.  I responded appropriately, with a 5,000-word rebuttal, Smithsonian mag throws “Truth at Last” a bone: Says, “it’s possible . . . Campbell is on to something, that I hope you will take the time to read, if you haven’t already.

According to the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum’s website, “Dorothy Cochrane curates the collections of general aviation aircraft; flight materiel (specifically personal, business, and utility production aircraft); aerial cameras; and the history of general aviation and women in aviation.”  Not included is the fact that she also spreads government-approved disinformation about the disappearance of Amelia Earhart at every opportunity.

The below was my second of three attempts to post my comment on Aug. 2,  despite being convinced it had no chance for approval:

Why did you delete my below comment, as if I don’t know that you are among the leaders in the campaign to keep the masses ignorant about the truth in the Earhart disappearance.  I think I’ll do a blog post about this. If you change your mind, you can delete this paragraph and post the original as sent.  Fat chance.

The very idea of the “Earhart Mystery” in itself is one of the most enduring lies of the 20th, and now 21st century.  Neither Nikumaroro nor Crashed and Sank have a shred of evidence to support them, while Earhart’s landing at Mili Atoll in the Marshalls and later death on Saipan are supported by mountains of evidence in the forms of eyewitness and witness accounts, letters, documents, and the words of three flag officers — Adm. Chester Nimitz and Generals Graves Erskine and Alexander A. Vandegrift — and much more, attesting to the presence and deaths of Earhart and Fred Noonan on Saipan.

According to my Discus account profile, the above comment was in Pending status until about 7 p.m. Saturday night, Aug. 3, when it unceremoniously disappeared without explanation, as did the others.  But on the afternoon of the next day, Aug. 4, the comments mysteriously showed again as Pending.

Monday, Aug. 5 has now passed and my comment has been pending for four days.  Instead of rejecting my comments outright, the Smithsonian magazine editors have chosen to do nothing, a non-action that seems quite appropriate for these unsavory characters.  While permanent pending status is the same as deletion or rejection, I do wonder how long they’ll wait before actually deleting it — like cowardly thieves hiding and waiting for the coast to clear.  Or could this post shame them into finally approving it?  Not if they have no shame, which has pretty well been established.  Be sure I will keep you updated.

I’m not a lawyer, but it occurs to me that as a publication of the U.S. governmenttheSmithsonian magazine’s editors, by not allowing my comment to stand, are in direct violation of the First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speechor of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

vandegrift

General Alexander A. Vandegrift, eighteenth commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, confirmed Amelia Earhart’s death on Saipan in an August 1971 letter to Fred Goerner.  Vandegrift wrote that he learned from Marine Gen. Tommy Watson, who commanded the 2nd Marine Division during the assault on Saipan and died in 1966, that “Miss Earhart met her death on Saipan.” (U.S. Marine Corps photo.)

The comment of publisher Doug Westfall, whose Special Books, a vanity press that has historically provided a platform for authors with certifiably crackpot ideas about the Earhart case, was allowed to stand.  This isn’t surprising, since Westfall’s statement is an insipid, meaningless aside, promoting another lunatic fringe theory that only serves to militate against anyone taking legitimate research about the Earhart matter seriously.  The Smithsonian magazine is quite happy to publish comments such as Westfall’s, as it makes their own propaganda sound less absurd:

I whole-heartedly [sic] agree.  They are looking in the wrong place!”  (Salah to Indiana in Raiders of the Lost Arc.)  We published William Snavely’s book, Tracking Amelia Earhart — and he shows how she turned back and splash landed off Buka Island — see the map in this article.  As well, he found a plane.  Smithsonian Magazine published Snavely’s story in the January 2015 issue.  Since then there have been two more dives.

So what?  People go diving all the time.  “He found a plane,” Westfall says, but he doesn’t tell you it wasn’t Earhart’s.  Westfall has always been part of the problem, and neither he nor Snavely even bothered to put Tracking Amelia Earhart on Amazon.com,where 30 million books are available in the world’s largest book marketplace — such is their confidence in their unsellable fish wrapper.  

Lies and Deceit: Thy names are Legion. Thy names are the American Media.

It really is unconscionable. The Smithsonian has managed to strip itself of any integtity it may have held in my heart. To publish horsepoops is simply not on.

If you’ve got an interest youd do well to listen to a great interview with Mike Campbell here. It should go ready to rock, but, if needed it’s item number 46. Highly recommended!

Aloha.

This is a most excellent discovery. I hope we get to see some good stuff soon.

Goliath’s True Hometown Found? (Giant Sized Ruins)

Goliath’s True Hometown Found? Lost 3,000-year-old Philistine City Emerges Beneath Gath

Massive fortifications hidden beneath previously excavated settlement in southern Israel may have inspired biblical traditions about Goliath and other hulks

Archaeologists excavating the ancient Philistine city of Gath have uncovered massive 3,000-year-old fortifications of a size unprecedented for their time and place. The discovery could help explain why the Bible names this town as a home to giants, the researchers say.

The monumental ruins emerged in recent months beneath the remains of a later and already well-explored layer of the Philistine settlement, indicating that researchers have stumbled upon an older city that was partially or completely built over by subsequent generations.

If Goliath did once exist, his hometown would apparently have been this earlier city, not the one under archaeological investigation for decades.

The discovery suggests that Gath was at the peak of its power much earlier than previously thought, putting its heyday around the time when the city features heavily in the biblical narrative as a fierce rival of the early Israelites as well as the hometown of Goliath and other outsized biblical warriors.

“I’ve been digging here for 23 years, and this place still manages to surprise me,” says Aren Maeir, a professor of archaeology at Bar-Ilan University who leads the expedition in Gath. “All along we had this older, giant city that was hiding just a meter under the city we were digging.”

Located in southern Israel, the site is known today as Tell es-Safi. As the name suggests, it is a tell – a mound largely made up of the stratified ruins of multiple settlements left over by millennia of human habitation.

Finds at Tell es-Safi range from remains dated to the 5th millennium B.C.E. to a medieval Crusader castle and a modern Arab village destroyed in Israel’s 1948 War of Independence. Most scholars accept the identification of this site as the biblical Gath, in large part because of its location and the major Philistine-era remains found there.

Gath is mentioned in the Bible more times than any of the five major Philistine cities (the other four being Ekron, Ashdod, Ashkelon and Gaza). Gath is said to have hosted the Ark of the Covenant for a brief time after the Philistines captured it from the Israelites (1 Samuel 5:8) and it is where David sought refuge twice from king Saul, eventually becoming a mercenary for the city’s ruler, Achish (1 Samuel 21 and 1 Samuel 27).

A hidden city emerges

Archaeologists have been digging Philistine Gath for decades, uncovering temples, mud brick houses and massive oil presses that paint the picture of a bustling city sprawling over 500 dunams (50 hectares) with a population of around 5,000-10,000.

“This was the largest Philistine city and probably one of the largest in the Iron Age Levant,” Maeir says. “Larger cities were only found outside the Levant, such as in Egypt and Mesopotamia.”

Those Philistine remains were dated to a period called the Iron Age IIA, roughly from the end of the 10th century B.C.E. to the late ninth century B.C.E., when the city was destroyed in a conflagration, probably in the conquest of the area by the Aramean king Hazael around 830 B.C.E. – an event recorded in the Bible (2 Kings 12:17). Gath never recovered from that blow: it was later rebuilt as a small Judahite settlement but was destroyed again by the Assyrians at the end of the eighth century B.C.E.

Until now, researchers thought that Philistine Gath flourished mainly during that fairly brief window between the late 10th century B.C.E. and Hazael’s arrival, even though that period is a bit later than most of the biblical stories in which the city features. (If we trust the biblical chronology, Saul and David, who so frequently had dealings with the Gittites, would have lived in the late 11th-early 10th centuries B.C.E.)

Giants. Love giants. We’ve had tons of magically disappearing giant skeletons and their their giant accessories … and now, thank God, we get giant buildings! Yay. Not so easily disappeared, eh.

How sweet it is.

I still have no clue as to why the species of giant human that seemed to reside world-wide remains secreted away and not talked of except those rare truth seekers who are marginalized.

It’s just wrong and may this discovery open the floodgates!

 

 

oily critter

I stumbled across this the other day and it made me smile. Because I remember. This is a tiny crop from a picture the had this person and a co-worker posing at the side of a dark vat at a facility (something to do with water, I think?), which had gone all wonky.

This lovely creature was found swimming all alone in that vat of God-knows-what oily, nasty concoction and was reportedly unidentified.

Right up my alley! This was somewhere in the United States, I’d say 70s or 80s. Wish I still had my photographic memory. Sigh.

Naturally there was never a follow up to the story.

I hate when that happens.
