Human Anomalies and Earth-like Planets

Kiiriq recalled that elders would call them Tunnit or Inukpasuit, the giants. They were treated as fearsome coastal dwellers and were considered enemies of Inuit. They spoke an Inuit language of an archaic type understandable to our ancestors.

Kiiriq would continue his tale and describe how Inupasuit were viewed as unkempt and unclean by Inuit standards. They were considered a danger to Inuit because they at times waylaid and captured unwary hunters.

Being smaller then them, our ancestors were considered a delectable prey. Once captured, they would be cooked and eaten with relish. Thus Inuit feared these giant beings and would attempt to wipe them out if they could. They were considered slow of thought but clever in their means of pursuit of game.  Inuit were ever moving eastward and the Inupasuit soon fell into the lot of myths and legends in our great grandparents’ time.

My research led me to Farley Mowat, author of Westviking, who includes descriptive appendices called “The Vanished Dorset”.

Mowat provides a description by the Norse who encountered the Dorset (Tunnit) around A.D.1000 as being swarthy and ill looking with remarkable eyes.

The “giants in the earth” mythos is common in Northern Native American cultures too it seems.

I read an article in a magazine a few years back about a tribe of Native Americans living around Hudson Bay that curiously have Northern European genetic markers.

And no-one knows why.

Earth-like planets with life-sustaining conditions are spinning around stars in our galactic neighborhood, US astrophysicists say. They just haven’t been found yet.

“There are something like a few dozen solar-type stars within something like 30 light years of the sun, and I would think that a good number of those — perhaps half of them have Earth-like planets,” Alan Boss told the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AASS).

“So I think there is a very good chance that we will find some Earth-like planets within 10, 20 or 30 light years of the Sun,” the astrophysicist from the Carnegie Institution for Science told his AAAS colleagues meeting here since Thursday.

By “Earth-like”, they mean a rocky world that’s Mars-size to something five times the Earth’s mass, but less than the mass of a Neptunian world.

That leaves plenty of wriggle-room for interpretation.

75,000 years ago early humans built a stone calendar that predates all other man-made structures found to date. This ‘African Stonehenge’ has for the first time created a link to the countless other stone ruins in southern Africa and suggests that these ruins are much older than we thought. The complex that links Waterval Boven, Machadodorp, Carolina and Dullstroom, covers an area larger then modern-day Johannesburg.
Six years of research by a group of independent scientists and explorers has delivered what may be the crucial missing elements in our understanding of the lives and development of early modern humans. Their discovery has been released in a book they call Adam’s Calendar. But the research has also shown that these stone settlements represent the most mysterious and misunderstood structures found to date. It points to a civilisation that lived and dug for gold in this part of the world for thousands of years. And if this is in fact the cradle of humankind, we may be looking at the activities of the oldest civilisation on Earth.

I wonder if those ruins have any relationship to these in South America?

Maybe Michael Cremo isn’t so crazy after all?

  1. Guess we’d have to check dimensions to see if the Tunnit could have been Neanderthals.
    The Kon-Tiki expedition of Thor Heyerdahl made a lasting impression on me.
    There has been a constant tendency to underestimate the capabilities of ancient technologies. We know the Norse settled from Pennsylvania to Newfoundland, Labrador, Greenland and Icelan : Hudson’s Bay would have been open for a month or more in summer.
    The Phoenician traders left traces in all sorts of wild and wonderful places. I find cultural transmission less incredible than independent generation.

    I have to agree with you there J, the ancients were our ancestors and were very capable inventors and engineers.

    The Eiffel Tower, Chrysler, Empire State, World Trade Center, The Petronas Towers and others have an inpressive pedigree. The ideas just didn’t happen out of thin air.

    Thor Heyerdahl’s ideas were spot on in my estimation.
