Han, I wouldn't worry about one person's opinion. I, for one, enjoy these kinds of posts. Anything that expands one's knowledge of the world is never a bad thing.The reason I posted the link is because I like sharing information, I will often just post article or links from other sites, and others do the same.
The internet is gigantic, but as I have learned a lot from theses forums I almost feel obligated to repay the favours.
In regard to your question about how I would date a particular "case": I would flip it back to you and ask what leads you to believe that "accepted history" is wrong?
I think you said something about falsification by Jesuits in a previous thread, but I don't want to put words in your mouth.
I will say that I have seen the Acropolis in Athens, and Karnac in Egypt and come to think of it Stone Heng with my own eyes, I would pretend to be a qualified Historian but that was some pretty convincing evidence, to me at least.
I can't disagree that the pictures you posted are very cool, I had not previously seen colourised versions.
One part I couldn't quite get my head around was when you said "Nefertiti's Stuff found a decade prior in Arizona in 1909 by a dude named G.E. Kincaid and then shipped across the Atlantic,"
what do you mean when you say "found"? are you saying Nefertiti's stuff was Previously taken from Egypt to America and then back again? or that it was in America in the first place?
I wasn't being offensive, just askin'. Like having yer knowledge expanded, Red? Well, consider yourself in luck if I keep typing, for that is precisely what I can do for you ...Han, I wouldn't worry about one person's opinion. I, for one, enjoy these kinds of posts.

If I might make a polite suggestion: It's easier on the eyes to divide longer posts into shorter segments. I try to keep mine down to 3 lines as viewed on a 23 inch HD monitor. When posts have longer rambling segments, I tend to gloss over the content, and I imagine I'm probably not the only one.I wasn't being offensive, just askin'. Like having yer knowledge expanded, Red?

this is so funny, i almost posted the same article but got side tracked... this cat jockey needs to lay off the cat nip.. he be feisty..... interesting stuff Han!The reason I posted the link is because I like sharing information, I will often just post article or links from other sites, and others do the same.
This is the stuff I like to ponder. The need for expression is a very old trait within humanity. Art, language, communication, how do they intersect and interact with each other?What do you think about this cave called Chauvet?
Chauvet Cave - Wikipedia
According to carbon dating it is around 30,000 years old.

Again I wouldn't pretend to have a full understanding of the process of carbon dating, but I understand that some of the paintings have scratch marks in them from Cave Bears, which went extinct thousands of years ago.
Cave bear - Wikipedia
I believe they found some bones that have stalagmites formed over them, a process which I understand to take thousands of years.
How long does it take stalagmites and stalactites to form?
Disagree with it all in the end, but thanks for giving me the opportunity to try to flesh out a large, complicated, encompassing subject/theory for a few posts before telling me I'm stupid, crazy, wrong, etc. Lol.Just one comment/observation about coincidence/borrowing stories I have personally noticed: one was in the story of Perseus, and his "conception" via a "ray of light" from Zeus directed at Danae (Perseus's mother), and the story of the "immaculate conception" of JC (as in God and Mary).
Um, no.That bust is an Art Noveau fake. It is a plant. It is disinfo:
Is this Nefertiti – or a 100-year-old fake?
It was the Jesuit Siquart who 'found' the Amrna Boundry Stella. Between that, the bust, and the Amrna Letters surreptitiously found there, well, that's all the Jesuits need to do to fix it as fact. Well the Masonic Illuminati Fellas tied up the loose ends (people like Napoleon ...) The Amarna Hersy and Ahkenaten & Nefertiti are quite important in all of this but, of course, the Jesuits have the issue all confused and muddled, including displacing it all in location and time. That Jesuit didn't 'find' the Boundry Stella at Tel El Amarna - he chiseled it into the sandstone ...
Nefertiti Bust - WikipediaDietrich Wildung dismissed the claims as a publicity stunt, as radiological tests, detailed computer tomography, and material analysis have proved its authenticity. The pigments used on the bust have been matched to those used by ancient Egyptian artisans. The 2006 CT scan that discovered the "hidden face" of Nefertiti proved without doubt – according to Science News – that the bust was genuine.
Egyptian authorities also dismissed Stierlin's theory. Dr Zahi Hawass said "Stierlin is not a historian. He is delirious." Although Stierlin had argued "Egyptians cut shoulders horizontally" and Nefertiti had vertical shoulders, Hawass said that the new style seen in the Nefertiti bust is part of the changes introduced by Akhenaten, the husband of Nefertiti. Hawass also claimed that the sculptor Thutmose had created the eye, but it was later destroyed.
What are you smoking, man?When did Vesuvius erupt? Probably not much more than about 600-700 years ago. Prove me wrong. You can’t, nor can any geologist.
08.28.97 - Precise dating of the destruction of Pompeii proves argon-argon method can reliably date rocks as young as 2,000 yearsAccording to the Roman historian Pliny the Younger, Vesuvius erupted in the early afternoon of Aug. 24, 1,918 years ago, destroying Pompeii, Herculaneum and other Roman cities.
The certainty of the date tempted the team to test the ability of the argon-argon dating technique to establish the age of recent historic events. If it gave an accurate age for the pumice thrown out by the volcano, it would be by a wide margin the youngest rock ever dated by the technique.
The most common method for obtaining the age of objects as young as this is carbon-14 dating, a technique limited to organic material such as wood or bone.
To everyone's surprise the date given by the argon-argon dating technique was 1,925 years ago -- off by only seven years. The scientific error on the estimate was plus or minus 94 years.
"We nailed the date to five percent on our first attempt, so we could probably get the error down to one percent or less," Renne says.
The result is so amazing because every dating technique invokes assumptions or involves uncertainties that limit its ability to pinpoint dates with extreme precision. With carbon-14, for example, the changing ratio of carbon-12 to carbon-14 in the atmosphere over time puts a limitation on how precise a date can be established.
Scientists at the Berkeley Geochronology Center have improved the argon-argon technique so as to identify and correct for many of these uncertainties, thereby obtaining improved estimates.
And that's pretty much their only commonality:I did say probably, lol. And right now, well, I'm getting ready to go wander around the woods at 9,000', on the side of a mountain that has one of those more-than-meets-the-eye treasure tales attached to it. A happy coincidence, as its primary use for me for a couple decades is my off leash dog walking trail. I need to talk about the megalithic structures, as well. Let me leave you, for now (pretty sure I have at least one post in me after my walk this evening) with a story about a Dog. This Dog goes by many names, and he has a Job to do; namely, helping one's Soul across a body of water. In Egyptian Mythology, it is Annubis:

In Christianity, with Iconography in the Eastern Traditions that survived teh Romanov purge, it is St. Christopher who does that job. IN Eastern Iconography, little creepy adult looking baby people are representaions of that person's soul (I've posted these pics here before, IIRC):

In Aztec traditions, it is associated with Xolotl:

So, here we have three supposed separate civilizations, with supposedly different religions, separated by thousands of years and thousands of miles, and they all chose the Dog to do the exact same task regarding one's Soul. The concept of Diffusionism is correct - what is incorrect about it as portrayed by the GooRoos is the time frames and players responsible.
andAnubis (/əˈnuːbᵻs/ or /əˈnjuːbᵻs/; Ancient Greek: Ἄνουβις) is the Greek name of a god associated with mummificationand the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion, usually depicted as a canine or a man with a canine head. Archeologists identified the sacred animal of Anubis as an Egyptian canid, that at the time was called the golden jackal, but recent genetic testing has caused the Egyptian animals to be reclassified as the African golden wolf.
Like many ancient Egyptian deities, Anubis assumed different roles in various contexts. Depicted as a protector of graves as early as the First Dynasty (c. 3100 – c. 2890 BC), Anubis was also an embalmer. By the Middle Kingdom (c. 2055 – 1650 BC) he was replaced by Osiris in his role as lord of the underworld. One of his prominent roles was as a god who ushered souls into the afterlife. He attended the weighing scale during the "Weighing of the Heart," in which it was determined whether a soul would be allowed to enter the realm of the dead. Despite being one of the most ancient and "one of the most frequently depicted and mentioned gods" in the Egyptian pantheon, Anubis played almost no role in Egyptian myths.
Anubis was depicted in black, a color that symbolized both rebirth and the discoloration of the corpse after embalming. Anubis is associated with Wepwawet (also called Upuaut), another Egyptian god portrayed with a dog's head or in canine form, but with grey or white fur. Historians assume that the two figures were eventually combined. Anubis' female counterpart is Anput. His daughter is the serpent goddess Kebechet.
That's a pretty weak link, man.In Aztec mythology, Xolotl ([ˈʃolot͡ɬ]) was the god with associations to both lightning and death. He was associated with the sunset and would guard the Sun as it traveled through the underworld every night. Dogs were associated with Xolotl. This deity and a dog were believed to lead the soul on its journey to the underworld. He was commonly depicted as a monstrous dog. Xolotl was the god of fire and lightning. He was also god of twins, monsters, misfortune, sickness, and deformities. Xolotl is the canine brother and twin of Quetzalcoatl, the pair being sons of the virgin Coatlicue. He is the dark personification of Venus, the evening star, and was associated with heavenly fire.
