Forbidden Archealogy - By Richard Thompson & Michael A. Cremo

Over the past two centuries, researchers have found bones and artifacts showing that people like ourselves existed on earth millions of years ago. But the scientific establishment has suppressed, ignored, or forgotten these remarkable facts. Why? Because they contradict dominant views of human origins and antiquity. Evolutionary prejudices, deeply held by powerful groups of scientists, have acted as a 'knowledge filter'. And the filtering, intentional or not, has left us with a radically incomplete set of facts for building our ideas about human origins. The chart below summarizes some of the artifacts discussed in the book Forbidden Archeology - by Michael A. Cremo and Richard L. Thompson. The book analyzes a vast number of arrow heads, tools and bones that are millions of years old and show the existence of these items contradict the established time line of evolution as rigidly held by our dogmatic scientific community.

Below 11 layers of limestone at a depth of 50 feet were found coins, handles of hammers and other wood tool fragments. This was in a quary where workers were cutting stones for a building a massive palace.

In 1830, letterlike shapes were discovered within a solid block of marble from a quarry. The block was found at a depth of 60-70 Ft under layers of gneiss, mica slate, hornblende, talcose slate, and primitive clay slate.

In 1968, Wiliam J. Meister, a draftsman and amateur trilobite collector, reported finding a shoe print in the Wheeler Shale near Antelope Spring, Utah. This Shoelike indentation and it's cast were revealed when Meister split open a block of shale. " The heel print was indented in the rock about an eighth of an inch more than the sole. The footprint was clearly that of the right foot because the sandal was well worn on the rht side of the heel in characteristic fashion."

Article titled "Carved Stone Buried in a Mine" fromDaily News of Omaha decribed an object that was found at the bottom of a coal mine 130 feet down where the miners were sure the earth had never been disturbed before. He object was a dark grey stone about 2 feet long, one foot wide and 4 inches thick. "Over the surface of the stone are lines drawn forming perfect diamonds. The center of each diamond is a fairly good face of an old man having a peculiar indentation in the forehead that appears in each of the pictures, all of them being remarkably alike. Of the faces, all but two are looking to the right."

Wilburton Mine, Oklahoma

On January 10, 1949, Robert Nordling sent a photograph of an iron cup to Frank L. Marsh of Andrews University, in Berrien Springs, Michigan. Nordling wrote: "I visited a friend's museum in southern Missouri. Among his curios, he had the iron cup pictured on the enclosed snapshot". At the private museum, the iron cup had been displayed along with the following affidavit, made by Frank J. Kenwood in Sulphur Springs, Arkansas, on Nov 27, 1948: " While I was working in the Municipal Electric Plant in Thomas, Okla. in 1912, I came upon a solid chunk of coal which was too large to use. I broke it with a sledge hammer. This iron pot fell from the center, leaving the impression or mold of the pot in the piece of coal, and saw the pot fall out. I traced the source of the coal, and found that it came rom the Wilburton, Oklahoma, Mines". According to Robert O. Fay of the Oklahoma Geological Survey, the Wilburton mine coal is about 312 millon years old.

ANCIENT POLISHED STONE WALL FOUND IN COAL MINEW.W. McCormick of Abilene, Texas. Reported his grandfather's account of a stone block wall that was found deep within a coal mine: "In the year 1928, I, Atlas Almon Mathis, was working in coal mine No. 5, located 2 miles north of Heavener, Oklahoma. This was a shaft, and they told us it was 2 miles deep. The mine was so deep they let us down in an elevator....They pumped air down to us, it was so deep". One evening, Mathis was blasting coal lose by explosives in "room 24" of this mine. "The next moring, there were several concrete blocks laying in the room. These blocks were 12-inch cubes and were so smooth and polished on the outside that all six sides could serve as mirrors. Yet were full of gravel, because I chipped one of them open with my pick, and it was plain concrete inside. As I started to timber the room up, it caved in; and I barely escaped. When I came back after the cave-in, a solid wall of these polished blockes was left exposed. About 100 to 150 yards farther down our air core, another miner struck this same wall, or one very similar." The coal mine was probably Carboniferous, which would mean the wall was at least 286 million years old. According to Mathis, the mining company officers immediately pulled the men out of the mine and forbade them to speak about what they had seen. This mine was closed in the fall of 1928.

James Parsons, and his two sons, exhumed a slate wall in a coal mine at Hammondville, Ohio, in 1868. It was a large, smooth wall, disclosed when a great mass of coal fell away from it, and on its surface, carved in bold relief, were several lines of hieroglyphics.

On Oct 8, 1922, the American Weekly section of the New York Sunday American ran a prominent feature titled "Mystery of the Petrified 'Shoe Sole' 5,000,000 Years Old," by Dr. W.H. Ballou. Examined by Scientists and Shoe manufacturers, around the outline of the shoe print ran a well-defined sewn thread which had, it appeared , attached the welt to the sole. Further on was another line of sewing, and in the center was an indentation made by the bone of the heel rubbing upon and wearing down the sole material. Microphoto analysis showed details of thread twist and warp. Even to the naked eye threads can be seen distinctly as well as perforated stitches. The rock that the print was embedded in was found to be from the triassic period, 213-248 million years old.

Y. Druet and H. Salfati announced in 1968 the discovery of semi-ovoid metallic tubes of identical shape but varying size in Cretaceous chalk. The chalk bed, exposed in a quary at Saint-Jean de Livet, France, is estimated to be at least 65 million years old.

A small ( 2 in) clay human figurine coated with iron oxide was found from a well boring in 1889. The r
ecord of the well shows that in reaching the stratum from which the figurine was brought up they had penetrated first about fifty feet of soil, then 15 feet of basalt, then alternate beds of clay and quicksand down to a depth of 300 feet, when the sand pump began bringing up clay balls densely coated with iron oxide (some were over 2 inches in diameter). In the lower portion of this stratum there were evidences of a buried land surface where vegetable mold was found. From this point the figurine was found. A few feet further down sandrock was reached.

Lawn Ridge, Illinois
In 1870 J.W. Moffit found a Coin-like object with unrecognizable inscriptions, from a well boring found at a depth of 114 Ft. According to info supplied by the Illinoise State Geological Survey, the deposits containing the coin are between 200,000 and 400,000 years old. The strange "coin-medallion" was composed of an unidentified copper alloy, about the size and thickness of a U.S. quarter of that period. It was remarkably uniform in thickness, round, and the edges appeared to have been cut. Researcher William E. Dubois, who presented his investigation of the medallion to the American Philosophical Society, was convinced that the object had in fact passed through a rolling mill, the edges showed "further evidence of the machine shop." Both sides of the medallion were marked with artwork and hieroglyphs, but these had not been metal-engraved or stamped. Rather, the figures had somehow been etched in acid, to a remarkable degree of intricacy. One side showed the figure of a woman wearing a crown or headdress; her left arm is raised as if in benediction, and her right arm holds a small child, also crowned. The woman appears to be speaking. On the opposite side is another central figure, that looks like a crouching animal: it has long, pointed ears, large eyes and mouth, claw-like arms, and a long tail frayed at the very end. Below and to the left of it is another animal, which bears a strong resemblance to a horse. Around the outer edges of both sides of the coin are undecipherable glyphs - they are of very definite character, and show all the signs of a form of alphabetic writing.
