Continued study of an approximately 40,000 year old finger bone from Siberia has identified a previously unknown type of human — one that may have interbred with the ancestors of modern-day Melanesian people.
"Wild animals deal with a world that's unpredictable from year to year," said study lead author Bill Morris, a biologist at Duke University. "The weather can change a lot; there can be years with plenty of food and years of famine," he explain
And it would have been an ideal refuge from the harsh deserts surrounding it, with fresh water supplied by the Tigris, Euphrates, Karun and Wadi Baton Rivers, as well as by upwelling springs, Rose said.
When you hear the wisdom of Paul Craig Roberts you soon realize why he never appears on cable TV.
"No outrage over the bankers raping them, no outrage over their gutted industry, no outrage over their plundered dollar. Just blind, wanton stupidity. Just bread and circuses."
Americans were given the mental capacity to critically think. Sadly, a vast swath of Americans has chosen ignorance over knowledge. Make no mistake about it, ignorance is a choice. It doesn’t matter whether you are poor or rich. Books are...
Genetic testing of villagers in a remote part of China has shown that nearly two thirds of their DNA is of Caucasian origin, lending support to the theory that they may be descended from a 'lost legion' of Roman soldiers.
Here’s a montage of some of the most frightening stampedes in recent history, ones that give bargain hunting a more literal, feral twist.
The brains of newborn humans and Neanderthals are about the same size and appear rather similar overall. It's mainly after birth, and specifically in the first year of life, that the differences between our brains and those of our extinct relatives
We now know that Lucy was a meat-eater. Everybody had presumed that Lucy and her kind (and even human beings of the genus Homo) were vegetarians up until and after the development of modern humans. We now know that’s not true and it’s a huge revel
Archaeologists revealed they have found a piece of a stone axe dated as 35,500 years old on sacred Aboriginal land in Australia, the oldest object of its type ever found.
They help elitists to dismantle dissent and in the process damage their own future. It sounds insane, and in a way, they are psychologically ill, but in a manner that has been deemed tolerable by society. We call these people “Useful Idiots”.
The origin of anthropoids -- primates including monkeys, apes and humans -- has long been a source of hot debate among palaeontologists. Experts have long argued anthropoids first appeared in Africa -- but recent studies suggest an earlier Asian ori
Archeologists have uncovered evidence suggesting that early humans braved cold temperatures to occupy highlands in Papua New Guinea 50,000 years ago in search of food. The early settlers cleared land on the highlands to cultivate these plants, Summer
We need tribe. We need to belong. This is hard-wired into us. And in modern life, there is a disconnect. We live in little fenced-in square shelters, not only isolated from the collective shadow -- the murderers and rapists, but also the desirable pa
And we have what appears to be a new thrill: American soldiers using the cover of war to murder civilians. Recently American troops were arrested for murdering Afghan civilians for fun and collecting trophies such as fingers and skulls.
Today, reading books is for old fogies. Most people think Bradbury’s novel was a warning about censorship. It was not. It was a warning about TV and radio turning the minds of Americans to mush.
Come down to the Freedom's Phoenix Workshop Friday Sept. 24th 7pm and learn some things you've probably never heard about the the history of the state of Arizona and much of the American continent. Mr. Tom Denny says there are many facts that li
Prehistoric leftovers of a feast 12,000 years ago at an apparent shaman's gravesite have been unearthed in what is now Israel. Archaeologists say the ritual might be the first clear evidence of feasting in early humans, a sign of the kinds of increas
Toledo resident Melodi Dushane, 25, wanted some McNuggets for breakfast. She did not want to take her meds on a empty stomach.
This trend of never leaving home has sparked an almost tragicomical countertrend of Japanese parents who actively seek mates to marry off their "parasite single" offspring as the only way to get them out of the house.
The Great American Superpower, which is wasting trillions of dollars in pursuit of world hegemony, has 22% of its population unemployed and almost 17% of its population dependent on welfare in order to stay alive.
Scientists have used a computer program to decipher a written language that is more than three thousand years old. The program automatically translated the ancient written language of Ugaritic within just a few hours. Scientists hope the breakthrough
Our lineage might have diverged from our monkey relatives later than previously thought, a new primate fossil from Saudi Arabia suggests. One key step in understanding human evolution is pinning doing when the hominoid lineage, which includes apes an
When recession struck in the past, American cities became centers of poverty and crime. This time, expect dereliction in the suburbs.
Ancient humans braved the cold in Britain over 800,000 years ago to create the first known settlement in northern Europe, according to researchers. Their finding predates past evidence of prehistoric humans in Britain by at least 100,000 years.
In other words, our society has become a neighborhood where street-gangs—corporate entitites—battle one another for position. Even the Government is just another street gang.
When the reaction to the most mild challenges to power is irrational, hysterical violence, false imprisonments, frivolous lawsuits, IRS harassments, law changing at a whim, we know we can’t stop the system by pushing it...
The way out is obvious. If a two-party corpocracy beholden to gangster capitalism is ruining your life, get rid of it. Don't whimper. Bite.
Chimpanzees wage war, mercilessly killing members of neighboring groups to expand their own territory. While biologists had long suspected that chimp violence could be more than random, the study provides the first clear evidence of this.
