Archeologists’ Findings Prove We Need To Rewrite Human History

A study published Jan. 12, 2022 in Nature proves we really need to consider rewriting all of human history.

The so-called “dawn” of human history has been pushed back 30,000 years by a group of archaeologists led by the University of Cambridge, a small win for those of us studying mounting data showing humans have reached various levels of peak development throughout our time on this tiny spinning rocky planet.

The discovery came amid efforts to date the alleged “oldest modern human fossils” known to the general public. The fossils, known as Omo I and Herto, come from the Omo Kibish and Herto regions in Ethiopia, according to the full study. They were originally dated to around 197,000 years ago for the former and 160-155,000 years ago for the latter.

However, these dates were challenged after the researchers analyzed deposits from a major eruption of a local volcano. The results of the analysis showed the remains of Omo I were older than the enormous eruption, dating their existence to around 230,000 years ago.

“Using these methods, the generally accepted age of the Omo fossils is under 200,000 years, but there’s been a lot of uncertainty around this date,” lead author Celine Vidal said in a press release. “The fossils were found in a sequence, below a thick layer of volcanic ash that nobody had managed to date with radiometric techniques because the ash is too fine-grained.” (RELATED: Archaeologists Uncover Gold Leaf-Coated Mummy, Other Incredible Artifacts At Ancient Burial Site In Egypt)

“The new date estimate, de facto, makes [Omo I] the oldest unchallenged Homo sapiens in Africa,” co-author Dr. Aurélien Mounier added.

In a recent interview with Joe Rogan, Jimmy Corsetti spoke about how difficult it is to actually undertake research related to any geological or archaeological phenomena in many regions of Africa due to ongoing geopolitical conflict and extreme weather trends. This could be one reason why our actual knowledge of human history is inherently limited, and why discoveries such as those made by the team at the University of Cambridge only recently reassessed the origins of our species, Homo sapiens.

The other reason, in my opinion, is because if we actually understood our history as a species, we would never, ever let a random group of people (i.e., the government) tell us they control us, despite their total inability to protect us from anything that could wipe us out entirely.
