Author and researcher Michael Cremo talked about the evidence contradicting the Darwinian theory of human evolution, footprints that date back millions of years, and dinosaurs co-existing with humans. Looking at the possibility that there were previous advanced civilizations on Earth, he pointed out that modern buildings made of steel and glass will not last over vast periods of time. However, ancient stone structures, like the pyramids, remain intact to this day. "So, I think we have to ask, who's really more advanced," Cremo mused.
"They are discovering evidence all over the world, up to the present moment," Cremo said of findings that suggest "modern" humans existed in ancient times. He discussed recent reports from Kenya of footprints, matching the contemporary human foot, found in layers of rock about 1.5 million years old. Unfortunately, Cremo said, instead of acknowledging the amazing find for what it is, scientists have tried to fit it into pre-conceived notions of human evolution. He lamented that "this is a perfect example of how this knowledge filtering process works."
Additionally, Cremo stated that "there is evidence that humans were present" before, during, and after the age of the dinosaurs. To support this contention, he noted the famous evidence of "human footprints alongside dinosaur footprints" found in Texas and a modern human skeleton found in a 300 million-year-old layer of slate rock in Illinois. Since humans peacefully co-exist with dinosaur descendants like crocodiles in today's world, Cremo theorized that such cohabitation would have been possible in ancient times as well.
First hour guest Jerome Corsi discussed the escalating tensions between Iran and Israel. He was very concerned about what he saw as an impending conflict between the two nations. "My gut tells me that the war between Iran and Israel is right around the corner," Corsi warned.
A new study in connectedness has revealed that it truly is a small world. So small, in fact, that less than 10% of Earth's land areas require more than 2 days of travel time to reach a major city. The most remote place on Earth was determined to be the Tibetan plateau which requires a three week journey before one arrives at the nearest city. More at New Scientist, including a gallery of maps from the study.
