THESE 9 BURIAL STONES ARE FROM THE MORE THAN 300, FROM THE COLLECTION OF Dr. JAVIER CABRERA, THAT DEPICT SPECIFIC TYPES OF DINOSAURS. FOR YEARS THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL COMMUNITY HAS DISCOUNTED THESE BURIAL STONES AS FAKES BECAUSE "EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT MAN EVOLVED WELL AFTER THE DINOSAURS WERE EXTINT."
PALEONTOLOGISTS USE TO RIDICULE THE ROSETTE SKIN PATTERN AND THE DIRMAL FRILLS PRIOR TO THE 1990's. SINCE THEN FOSSIL DINOSAUR SKIN CLEARLY SHOWING ROSETTE SKIN PATTERNS (SEE OUR WEB PAGE, "THE CERAMIC DINOSAURS OF ICA PERU") AND IN GEOLOGY, DEC.,1992 DIRMAL FRILLS WERE CONFIRMED FOR THE FIRST TIME.
IT IS OBVIOUS TO ANY OPEN MINDED RESEARCHER THAT THE PEOPLE WHO CARVED THESE STONES SAW THESE CREATURES WITH THEIR OWN EYES.
THERE ARE 1100 OF THESE BURIAL STONES IN Dr. CABRERAS' COLLECTION IN ICA PERU. THEIR ART FORM AND LOCATION OF FINDS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE INCA CULTURE, c.a. 500-1500 AD. IN THE 1570's THE INDIAN CHRONICLER, JUAN DE SANTA CRUZ PACHACHUTI LLAMGUI WROTE THAT AT THE TIME OF THE INCA PACHACHUTI MANY CARVED STONES WERE FOUND IN THE KINGDOM OF CHINCA, IN CHINCHAYUNGA. HE ALSO STATES THAT SOME OF THESE STONES WERE TAKEN BACK TO SPAIN AT THAT TIME.
ON OCTOBER 3, 1993, THE OJO, LIMA DOMINGO, A MAJOR NEWSPAPER IN LIMA, PERU DESCRIBED A SPANISH PRIEST TRAVELING IN THE AREA OF ICA IN 1525 INQUIRING ABOUT THE UNUSUAL ENGRAVED STONES WITH THE STRANGE ANIMALS ON THEM.
THESE HISTORICAL RECORDS VARIFY THE EXISTANCE OF THESE STONES BEFORE THE 1800's WHEN "MODERN" MEN BEGAN TO LEARN ABOUT THE PAST EXISTANCE OF DINOSAURS.
THESE DINOSAUR ENGRAVED BURIAL STONES ARE POWERFUL EVIDENCE THAT THE CLASSICAL EVOLUTIONARY WORLD VIEW IS NOT TRUE!
THIS BEING TRUE, THE "EVOLUTIONARY" ARCHAEOLOGICAL COMMUNITY HAS DELIBERATLY SUPPRESSED THE EVIDENCE YOUR SEEING HERE FOR YEARS.

A Special Place of
Ancient Stone Carvings
From 'Existio Otra Humanidad' by J. J. Benitez, Plaza & Janes, Copyright
1975, pages 11 to 22 note the following :
In 1969, in a white rocky desert near the City of Ica in Peru, Dr.
Javier Cabrera Darquea, discovered and collected over 11,000
engraved stones from a very ancient time. These, plus an estimated
40,000 to 50,000 more of the same, constituted a vast library of
information from the past, even up to a million years ago.
They describe another humanity who apparently lived on this
planet many thousands of years ago. The good Peruvian Doctor Cabrera
has his fantastic collection on display in his house on the Plaza de
Armas in the City of Ica.
Eleven thousand stones engraved with advanced knowledge in
Medicine, Zoology, Biology, Law, Geography, Religion, Astronomy and
Astronautics detailing the knowledge of that advanced society. The
figures of the other humanity engraved on these stone tablets looked
very much like men of Earth.
For the first time Earth humanity is confronted with the
surprising evidence that someone, before him, knew the secrets of
surgery, astronomy, space flight and many other things such as the
movement of the continents that make up our world.
All this and much more still to be discovered lies there in the
Peruvian Desert called Ocucaje.
Doctor Javier Cabrera noticed that this "library" of information
engraved on stones was divided into series and sections in their
respective locations, forming distinct volumes of stones.
Among them were a series demonstrating knowledge of medicine and
surgery including detailed explanations of heart, brain, liver and
kidney transplants. Methods of overcoming rejection of organ
transplants were described. There were descriptions of caesarian
section and acupuncture; of work with genetic codes and prolongation
There were descriptions of electronic systems that could control
biological life functions of the body while it was being worked on
by the doctors.
There were a series of tablets devoted to astronomy and knowledge
of the universe, among which were examples that described the
occupation of our planet by these beings long before contemporary
Thirteen constellations were specifically described by the
creators of these tablets. These historians indicated other places
in the heavens where there existed LIFE, vegetable, animal and
intelligent. That civilization recorded the passing of a great
comet, millions of years ago that produced catastrophic disturbances
in the society of the time.
They knew of existing LIFE in distant stars and nebulosities.
There were descriptions of technical devices and machines that
traveled in space without consuming fuel. There were explanations of
the figures and lines drawn on the plains of Nazca. There was also a
drawing of hemispheric maps of another planet. NOT EARTH, but
another planet having intelligent life that was also capable of
There were a series of tablets describing plant and animal life
long extinct. There were drawings of men provided with apparatus
reminiscent of cowboys, mounted on four legged animals in pursuit of
great saurians, the dinosaurs of millions of years ago. These men
had larger heads and smaller stature, and were shown pursuing
various types of dinosaurs such as Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and
There were tablets showing the biological cycles of these great
saurians, and even some domesticated examples of them. There were a
series of tablets dedicated to the ancient continents of our world,
and two matched circular stones showing the eastern and the western
hemispheres of this planet at that time; hemispheres that showed the
earth's geography millions of years ago. These hemispheric maps
showed continents that no longer exist today, such as the mythical
Atantis and Mu, and even others.
Among these tablets was also a story of a great evacuation or
departure of men from Earth. On stones of great weight the
civilization engraved the story of the departure OF THE ELITE
SCIENTISTS AND PROFESSIONALS, STRAIGHT TO A PHYSICAL PLANET THAT
TODAY WOULD BE CONSIDERED A PART OF THE PLEIADES!"

Dinosaur Extinction: The Premise
Dinosaur extinction -- Most scientists believe that dinosaurs
went extinct about 50 to 65 million years ago. Most scientists agree that
man’s conception of dinosaurs has been limited to the past 180 years or so
(the word itself wasn’t even coined until 1841). Therefore, if we
discovered evidence of man’s knowledge of (or coexistence with) dinosaurs
during the last couple of centuries, “science” (as we know it) would be
turned upside down.
Dinosaur Extinction: The Evidence
Human & Dinosaur Fossils. Human bones and tools coexist in
the same fossil layers as dinosaur bones in Texas and the Dakotas.
Human & Dinosaur Footprints. Footprints of dinosaurs,
humans and other mammals coexist in the same fossil layers in Texas and
Native American Petroglyphs. Cave and cliff drawings in Utah
and Colorado crudely depict certain dinosaur species (dated from 400 A.D.
to 1300 A.D.).
Ica Stones. Ceremonial burial stones discovered in Ica, Peru
depict numerous species of dinosaurs, some in activities with man (dated
from 500 A.D. to 1500 A.D.).
Acambaro Figurines. Ceramic and stone figurines discovered in
Acambaro, Mexico represent many species of dinosaurs (dated from 800 B.C.
to 200 A.D.).
Dragon Accounts. China, Europe and the Middle East share
similar accounts of “dragons” and other beasts. Some cultures revered
these creatures. For instance, records of Marco Polo in China show that
the royal house kept dragons for ceremonies. In other cultures, it was a
great honor to kill these beasts. There are numerous records of warriors
killing great beasts in order to establish credibility in a village.
Behemoth, Leviathan and the Dragons of the Bible. Job writes of
great creatures, Behemoth and Leviathan, nearly 4000 years ago. Although
more recent Bible translations use elephant, hippo or crocodile instead,
the original Hebrew does not allow for these interpretations. The word
“dragon” (Hebrew: tannin) is used numerous times in the Old Testament, and
most directly translates as “sea or land monsters.”
Gilgamesh, Fafnir, Beowulf and other Legends. Many famous
legends, including the mythology of Egypt, Greece and Rome, include
specific descriptions of dragons and other dinosaur-like creatures.
Dragons in Ancient Art. Dinosaur-like creatures are featured on
Babylonian landmarks, Roman mosaics, Egyptian burial shrouds, and many
other pieces of art throughout the ancient world.
Current Legends & Discoveries. There is a huge and credible
legacy of sea, lake and swamp “monsters,” even to this day.
|An e-mail received by a young woman from a man in
"This year I bought a computer, got on the web and am enjoying
the fruits of this "Information Age". Naturally, I've investigated sites
which are of especial interest to myself...such as Pterosaurs. Why
pterosaurs? Because in the summer of 1971 while stationed at Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba, I saw 2 of them flying leisurely overhead at no more than 200
ft distance. I haven't had much success telling people about it - they're
all believers of the lies of evolution,etc. Now with the internet I've
seen some corroboration. When I wrote to National Geo. years ago they
informed me that Pterosaurs have been extinct for millions of years. Shows
what they know. The arrogance of people amazes me. They're in New York, I
was in Cuba; but they feel confident telling me what I saw. I wish someone
would shoot one or capture it alive and cram it down NatGeo's
Thanks for the site,

Evolutionists claim that Dinosaurs and Man have Never lived together.
Just read this letter I received below:
From someone who calls themselves "the heathen scientist" (08/03/2001)
"Dinosaurs died roughly 64,000,000 years ago, and
humans didn't totally evolve until roughly half a million years ago. There's
a time difference of about 63,500,000 years there."
You can see from my page on carbon dating that there are many false
assumptions in carbon dating. Paintings, carvings and eyewitness accounts
(including Job's in the Bible) show that man and dinosaurs did live
together. Therefore the alleged millions of years that are supposed to
separate the 2 disappears.
The physical evidence * and historical accounts
of "Dragons" also show that man and dinosaurs lived together.
(*rapid deposition of fossils due to a global catastrophe
like a flood)
Have there ever been any human fossils found Cretaceous rock?
Yes and No.
Cretaceous rock is the layer of rock that many geologists say dinosaurs
are found in. But they don't have any accurate way of telling how old a
layer of rock is (see my page on Carbon dating).
They say it is Cretaceous rock only because dinosaurs are in it.
So if a layer of rock has dinosaurs in it then they say it is 165 million
If humans are in it they say it is about 1 million years old.
The circular reasoning doesn't even cross their minds.
So if humans lived at the same time as dinosaurs, but lived in different
places, they would be fossilized in different places as well.
Evolutionists believe that Dinosaurs died millions of years ago. But
there is a great amount of evidence that dinosaurs lived only a few thousand
One of these pieces of evidence is a blood report from a t-rex with
intact hemoglobin. Hemoglobin breaks down rapidly and could not last
millions of years.
I have had a few people email me trying to disprove this, but a more
recent (2005) find shows not only dinosaur blood, but soft, fibrous tissue,
and complete blood vessels!
There have also been a few dinosaur like creatures, and numerous other
animals thought to be extinct) caught in recent years (please see my
page on "living fossils").
These amazing finds have caused the Scientific community to seriously
rethink what they believed about the dinosaurs.
If they had read their Bibles, they would have known all along that God
created man at the same time as the dinosaurs.

Atlantis Grid, DNA, Energy, Wormwood
From The House of David Teaching Centre
An article on the historical Atlantis Energy Grid and it's
cosmic energy know as "Wormwood." This Christ Energy is now coming into
it's own after being seeded 2000 years ago. There is also a discussion on
the three great DNA past experiments and how they apply to
Atlantis, The Atlantis Grid, DNA and the Redemption of the
Universe. The question of DNA - and the inter-racial difficulties it
caused - was important in Atlantis, and this article attempts to show why,
what the historical background was, and the context it gives us for today.
There was more than one type of humanoid present during Atlantis. To
understand how this came about, we have to look back further in time, at
even earlier civilizations on this planet.
The humanoid form is a design that has existed for eons of
time, and over that time has been expressed in may different ways. To
explain what is meant by this, we might take a house design as a metaphor.
Its plans, elevations, levels, general layout, rooms, the pitch of the
roof, etc. - all taken together - are what constitute that design. The
expression of that design may be to build it from timber, bricks, metal
sheets, mud and wattle - the end effect will be very different depending
on the materials chosen, but it's all the same fundamental
So it is with the humanoid form. Over time, the same design has
been expressed a number of different ways, using the best DNA that was
then available, which in turn reflects different stages in the development
of the physical planes of existence. Since Humanity has been in the
phenomenon known as The Fall - from the time of Atlantis we have been
moving steadily down through the frequencies - those who came before us
now exist only at higher frequency levels, which, being largely out of
sync with our own, are no longer a part of our general consciousness. What
memories are left are now consigned to fairy stories and
On planet Earth, there have been three great DNA experiments
capable of expressing the humanoid design. The first was the reptilian,
and we know that, prior to the domination by the planet of the Dinosaurs,
the reptiles represented the major and most advanced DNA building block on
the planet, and many different reptilian forms resulted. The highest
expression of the reptilian DNA was a humanoid, reptile-man, or Reptoids.
They formed the first great civilization here, now completely lost to any
recorded history. They were cold blooded, and therefore very temperature
sensitive, although in a highly energized planetary environment, this
probably mattered little. Compared to today's human, they were almost
devoid of emotion.
The Dinosaurs, the second great experiment, were a much more
sophisticated DNA form, and they were even more prolific, being the
dominant DNA on Earth for 165 million years. Over time they developed to
become warm blooded, allowing them to operate efficiently in a wide
variety of ambient temperatures.
A recent documentary on The Discovery Channel followed an
interesting scientific detective story, as several Professors in this
field explored sites where dinosaur footprints and tracks - sometimes by
the thousand - are to be found. What became evident was that there were no
tail prints, which turns out to be highly significant. All our pictures of
Dinosaurs, developed against images first proposed over 100 years ago,
show large tails being dragged, lizard-like, over the ground, and these
were shown to be incorrect. The facts drawn from imprints left on the
ground, and re-constructions of the implied mechanics of walking, now
appear to indicate that these tails were balancing devices, and as such,
were held horizontally, and clear of the ground, leaving no
The documentary illustrated that, over time, one particular
group of dinosaurs had become increasingly upright. The terrifying
Terrano-saurus Rex is a good example, as its massively muscular front legs
were far too short to be useful as legs. They were arms - T-Rex moved on
two legs, and stood upright, as did many of the later dinosaurs.
The professor in the documentary showed his conclusion of the
logical pinnacle of the development of dinosaurs, in the form of a full
scale model. It was a giant humanoid! So, a humanoid based on Dinosaur DNA
- or a Dinoid - is now tentatively supported by the latest archaeological
findings. Indeed, science is thus just beginning to support what the kids
comic strip writers, and of the great science-fiction series, appear to
have known for decades. There are a variety of humanoids that have
developed in the past, based on the same basic design as our own, and
making the highest use of the best DNA that was available when and where
this happened. Thus, for example, the Cardassians from Star Trek are a
Reptoids race, humanoid beings based on the reptilian DNA. The Klingons
are a Dinoid race, humanoids based on the dinosaur DNA. The Dinoids were
the second humanoid civilisation, here on Earth, in pre-history. Like the
Reptoids, they left and moved to colonize other places, long
How does this apply to Atlantis? Well, we are all, vaguely,
aware that these complete civilizations have been here before our recorded
- or even speculated - history. Indeed, they were! First the Reptoids,
with their distinctly unfeeling, unemotional demeanor. Then the dinoids,
who, being warm blooded, were far more like us. Both developed, ascended
to higher frequencies, and left the planet. Both types, in their higher
form, came back again, many, many times. There were many civilizations,
spread around the cosmos, based on one or other of the two main DNA types,
and there were almost certainly other DNA derivatives of the humanoid
design, as well. Crustaceans, and Arachnid forms come to mind from the
comic strips - perhaps these, too, represent some distant memory?
The book "Two Thirds" records how the Alteans (who appear to
have been a Dinoid race) traveled across two galaxies to settle on Mars,
where they spent two hundred thousand years developing the new DNA from
which the hu-man being - the third great DNA experiment on Earth - was to
be created. Then, in just two generations they genetically engineered the
native anthropoids to create the first true humans. They went on to
observe, manage, and lead the new human race through hundreds of thousands
of years as it started it's long developmental period.
Notice the similarity between the names 'Altean' and
'Atlantean'. The Dinoids were a far more developed humanoid type than the
humans, since they had existed immeasurably longer. However, their DNA was
ultimately less capable than the human DNA, so that their ultimate
development could not go nearly as far as the full potential of the human
being. They looked for ways to get around this restriction, and in
particular, they did this energetically, developing a two layer soul
structure. The first layer was not unlike ours. The second, a sort of
soul-mantle, held many extraordinary faculties which, today, we are only
just becoming cognoscente of. Using the power of this mantle, they could
manifest into the physical, travel across time and dimensions, communicate
telepathically, teleport and bi-locate.
Although Earth had long since ceased to be the home for their
civilizations, later, a small number of Dinoids were here for a long time
as powerful leaders of the newer human beings. They lead Atlantis, and
later were the Pharaoh's of ancient Egypt. It is probable that there were
Reptoids here, as well, at that time. Again, the book 'Two Thirds' is
interesting, as it portrays the reptilian group, one of several
civilizations from the Plaeides, and the Alteans (who were Dinoid)
struggling for control of the galaxy. The role of the human, after a very
tough time over many incarnations, is illustrated in the book as 'the
redemption of the Universe', eventually being the mediators that bring all
three humanoid types into harmony.
Atlantis existed at a markedly higher frequency than our Earth
civilizations of today. The frequency band in which they existed was
around three times higher than ours, which means that, if an Atlantean at
his correct frequency were to stand in front of us, today, we would be
unable to see him. This has been caused by the continuing 'Fall' down the
frequencies, over the intervening period.
The whole Atlantean civilization was absolutely dependent for
much of what it could do on the energy grid. Indeed, the grid itself might
almost be called Atlantis, it was such an integral part of the whole
Atlantean development and capability - both spiritual, and scientific. It
would not be far fetched to say that Atlantis was BOTH the Atlantean
civilization, and the great and vibrant energy grid on which it was based.
Although Atlantis did, indeed, have a central city with large surrounding
territories, parts of it's civilization, attached to and fully utilizing
the grid energies, were to be found as colonies, tapped into the energy
grid all over the planet, perhaps explaining why, to this day, we are
arguing about where it really was. There were many Atlantean colonies
around the planet, so that, to a considerable degree, ALL the locational
claims of the modern world may well be true.
The grid was a whole system of inter-locking energy structures,
that between them brought the twelve great rays - the energy building
blocks of the Universe - onto the physical planet. These rays provide all
that is needed to sustain a most abundant, long life for all physical life
forms. Thus, Dinoids, Reptoids, and native humans alike, all drew on the
energy grid, which was highly energized, for both sustenance - food as we
know it was for pleasure, not survival - and to maintain themselves at
this high frequency. The energy grid also interacted with the soul/mantle
of the ruling Dinoids, giving them the energy for their greatly enhanced
Throughout the Universe, there had been great disquiet about
the human experiment. Never had so many potential powers been packaged
into one DNA form - the remarkable powers that the Dinoids had by virtue
of their over soul were all built into the Human DNA, which, eventually,
would have no need of the 'over soul' of the Dinoids. It was an even
greater threat to have added the concept of complete free will and self
determination to these latent powers, and the plan seemed to many to be
foolish in the extreme. Consequently, the plan cased a split at every
level across our Universe - the Elohim, the Melchizedek order, the
Essenes, the Angelic realms - all were split over this plan. Indeed, it
was the fundamental source of separation.
This argument showed up in Atlantis in several ways. First,
there was much genetic engineering on the humans, designed to slow down
our development. The other groups knew that humans were designed to
overtake them, and a breakaway group of the Melchizedek order (all Dinoid
priests), in particular, were instrumental in trying to slow the human
form down by substantially disabling their DNA. The Dinoids and the
Reptoids also tried hard to graft the human DNA into themselves, to gain
the benefits of the greatly enhanced DNA. Thus, stories about genetic
experiments, some of which became very bizarre, are founded in the reality
of the time.
Secondly, and directly connected, there was a great deal of
racial pressure and dominance, a phenomenon that was, at that time, quite
new. The ruling Dinoids were painfully aware that, at some future time,
the humans would become more powerful than them. They became very insecure
about this, and it was one of the undermining factors that undermined what
had once been a model of community relations, and lead inexorably towards
the downfall of Atlantis.
Ultimately though, the downfall of Atlantis was, in large part,
to do with misuse of the great energy grid which was its key support tool,
and kept Atlantis at a constant, high vibratory level. The grid energy was
diverted to form very powerful weapons of war, which could - through the
use of massive crystals as accumulators - deliver a blast of energy with
an effect not unlike a modern nuclear weapon. Most of our deserts today
are the result of use of this weapon in action taken against various
groups around the planet. The deployment of this weapon caused many of the
Earth's tectonic plates to be damaged, and progressively ruptured, which
was to give rise to huge volcanic activity around the planet, and
eventually, with other factors, cause the main plate on which Atlantis
stood, to sink.
The main war, however, was with the Reptoids, who were very
militarily aggressive, and who had taken over the planet Meldek, having
earlier driven out the Melchizedek priesthood . (Chizu - or Jesu - meant
priest, thus the Melchizedek are 'the priests of Meldek. It was, of
course, a cosmic order, also) Meldek was soon to be destroyed. In the
final, fatal exchange, the Atlanteans blew Meldek to pieces, but only
after the Reptoids had launched their ultimate weapon : a resonance bomb
of huge proportions that exploded in the atmosphere over the central city
of Atlantis, causing the already damaged tectonic plates to buckle and
collapse. In some way, this technology involved turning the energy of the
Atlantean war-crystals back on itself, causing a 'feedback loop' which
caused massive amounts of energy to run out of control, interacting with
the Reptoids device in the atmosphere, and rapidly leading to a huge
detonation. Planet Earth survived, but there was huge destruction and loss
of life, and it's land masses were changed for ever.
Prior to this final act of war, as the use of this devastating
military weapon system had increased, the great energy beings of the
Cosmos - whose gift the energy for the grid was - became more and more
disapproving, at the same time as the Dinoid rulers were becoming more and
more arrogant in their quest for ultimate power. The energy beings could
see the great structural damage that was being done to the planet, but the
Atlantean rulers would simply not listen. In their paranoia about the
advance of their human charges, they had to have control - and the energy
weapons were seen as vital to this. In the Cosmos, it was reluctantly
decided that the supply of the twelve rays of cosmic energy to the Earth
grid must be discontinued, and that planet Earth would consequently go
into 'The Fall', as the Bible calls it - the lack of energy support meant
that the planet, and all beings on her, would steadily fall through the
energy frequencies. This was duly done, although it took time to
implement, and required the assistance of those few human Atlanteans who
had learned the truth about the nature of the cosmos, and had remained
true to what they had learned.
During the existence of Atlantis, while there was a fully
energized grid, the cross over points of the major lines of the grid gave
rise to huge energy vortices. The humans of Atlantis, in particular, were
told never to spend time in or near these points, as they would quickly
become energetically overcharged, which could, in extremes, be fatal. The
vortices were so powerful that, at times, the energy could clearly be seen
like a minor Aurora Borealis, with moving 'fingers' of energy, many tens
of feet high, pointing upwards from the vortex. It was this that looked
like the mouth of a dragon, and gave rise to the leylines being referred
to as 'dragon lines' in many parts of the world, even today.
Once the decision was made, in order that the grid could be
de-commissioned, it was necessary for these vortices to be switched off.
The small, highly spiritual group of loyal human Atlanteans - who has
always opposed the science of the war machine that had lead to the
diverting of the grid energy - were asked to assist with this by the great
energy beings. Their task was to walk into the main vortex points, at
great personal danger, and to use their spiritual skills to switch off the
vortex. Small teams drawn from this group were sent all over the planet,
so that all the vortices could be disabled in this way.
It was this act that gave rise to mythological stories like
Saint George and the Dragon - he was, in fact, one of these Atlanteans who
remained true to their ideals and their great spirituality, and accepted
this task. It is no coincidence that there are 'Dragon Slaying' stories in
the mythologies of many cultures, all over the planet - they are a distant
record, a folk memory, of what really happened.
When all the energy points had been disabled, it was like
withdrawing the fixing points that held the grid to the planet. What was
left, in energy terms, were only seven of the great rays, and these were
present only at low energy and in a modified and degraded form, which ever
since have been reflected in the seven main chakras of the hu-man body.
The energy grid then literally detached itself from the planet, and went
off in it's own orbit, an 'almost planet' containing all the higher
dimensions of Earth, but not the physical. This coincided with the final
acts of war between the Dinoids and the Reptoids, which caused the
The detached grid has come back into conjunction with the Earth
every two thousand years, ever since, at which time, many apparently
magical things have happened for a few years, as the higher powers were
temporarily re-connected. The last time this happened was when Christ was
on the Earth.
The grid in it's full cosmic energy form was known as
'Herculobus', and it's energy as 'Wormwood', this latter being mentioned
in the Bible. Only a faint magnetic shadow of the real grid, barely
detectable, was left on the planet until recently.
The removal of the grid had a dramatic effect on the surviving
Dinoid rulers. Without the grid energy to sustain them, their 'over soul'
- the part of them that contained all the magical and energetic powers
that gave them the power to rule - was disabled. In fact, the over soul
became a liability, threatening to drain them of their life-energy. Most
of them fled the planet, to look for other energy environments that would
continue to sustain them in full power. A few - mostly with a high degree
of dedication to the human experiment - chose to remain, but did so with
power that was both greatly decreased because of the removal of the grid,
and, they knew, would steadily diminish further as the energies of the
planet became ever lower. The Pharaoh's were one Dinoid group that did
this, but with ever less power, as time passed and new generations were
born. Their great structures, like the Egyptian Pyramids, were, in part,
collectors of the cosmic energy that could refresh them, and maintain
their powers, but ultimately this approach only delayed an inevitable end
to their control.
Let us now look to the present day. Over the twelve months of
1995 a phenomenon has been observed, as the energies of the leyline grid
has increased 100-fold. This was caused by their resonating with the
approaching 'Herculobus' - the real and original 'grid without a planet'.
On approximately December 7th, 1995, the grid locked on to the planet,
rather than pass right by, as it had done so many times before. At the end
of that month, ceremonies around the world were performed to start the
process of re-commissioning the grid into it's true form, which is highly
energized, and multi-dimensional. All twelve cosmic energies are now
present for the first time since Atlantis, and now there is a thirteenth
energy, which is only just appearing around the whole planet for the first
time. This energy holds the whole system together, and in a form that is
highly resistant to abuse (unlike the system of seven it replaces, which
is easily polarized). This energy, now coming into it's own for the first
time, was seeded two thousand years ago, and is what we might now call the
The grid that gave rise to, and supported Atlantis is back.
Soon, all the energetic structures it represents will be in place and
operating, and in addition, the Christ energy will envelop the whole
planet. The much discussed Ascension is the move back up the energies,
driven by the re-commissioning of the Atlantis grid, to where we once were
energetically, at the time when the Dinoids reigned, and abundance and
magic were, for so long, the order of the day.
The big difference is that now, humanity has evolved a great
deal, having been tempered by long experience of the fall, separation, and
all that has gone with it through many hundreds, if not thousands, of
incarnations. We are ready to take, and use, the powers that we once
available to Atlantis, for the highest good, and in an entirely new
format. What is now happening will eventually benefit the whole cosmos, as
it brings about the full and positive expression of the powers for so long
latent in the Human design. What is on offer to humanity is it's destiny,
is no less than the leadership position in the redemption of the Universe!
REPTILIANS AND KING LEO
For many years claims were made by strict creationists that
human footprints or "giant man tracks" occur alongside dinosaur tracks in
the limestone beds of the Paluxy River, near Glen Rose Texas. If true,
such a finding would dramatically contradict the conventional geologic
timetable, which holds that humans did not appear on earth until over 60
million years after the dinosaurs became extinct. However, the "man track"
claims have not stood up to close scientific scrutiny, and have been
abandoned even by most creationists. The supposed human tracks have
involved a variety of phenomena, including forms of elongate (metatarsal)
dinosaur tracks, erosional features, indistinct markings of uncertain
origin, and some doctored and carved specimens (most of the latter on
loose blocks of rock).
|THE POSITIVE SIDE OF THE ARGUMENT
The following text is from Dr. Carl Baugh's book entitled
Dinosaur: Scientific Evidence that Men and Dinosaurs Lived Together.
Tracks Step on Evolution"
So ran the headlines of the Fort Worth, Texas, Star-Telegram on
Thursday evening, June 17th, 1982.
The article highlighted a series of controversial points
resulting from an excavation the author had directed. Did dinosaurs really
die out over sixty million years ago? Were there giant humans wandering
the earth at the same time as the dinosaurs? Were the tracks at the Paluxy
River area of Texas genuine or had they been deliberately carved out of
the rock for sale to gullible tourist?
The headline appealed to me and so the theme for this book was
born. Throughout its pages, questions are answered and compelling evidence
is presented to show that dinosaur and human tracks at the Paluxy River in
Texas DO step on evolution. At the same time, they show forth new facts
concerning the Genesis Flood.
The sedimentary rocks of Texas indeed tell a strange and
intriguing story, supporting the biblical record of a worldwide flood in
Noah's time (Gen. 6-9). An artifact was found in Ordovician strata near
London, Texas. The stone, according to evolutionist, is over four hundred
million years old yet the artifact is an iron hammer, clearly manmade. How
could a manmade object have been made four hundred million years ago? What
buried it in sedimentary strata deep in the heart of Texas? ( See photo
page "Q" )
Or let us consider the ledges we excavated. It is Cretaceous
limestone, dated by the University of Texas at one hundred eight million
years. We excavated in during 1982 and, in addition to the human
footprints, we found other evidences of recency. Here was carbonized
material -burned plant residue of modern kind. The limestone is younger
than that plant from long ago (probably only minutes younger) for that
burned plant had to be burned in the middle of the limestone as it was
Our major excavation was at the Paluxy River area, four miles
out of the little town of Glen Rose, Texas. Thousands of tourists visit
here every year to see the state park where evidence has been brought
together to show that more than a dozen different types of dinosaurs
roamed these Cretaceous beds at some time in the past.
The intrigue and the mystery of this whole area has been
enhanced by the many reports of human tracks, as well as dinosaur tracks,
found in the strata on the area of this riverbed for more than fifty
years. An eighty-nine-year-old local resident, Emmit McFall, was ever
ready to show pictures and recount discoveries of both human-like tracks
and dinosaur footprints. So it was on Mr. McFalls farm that our first
preliminary excavation began on Monday, March 15, 1982
It should be stressed that there is considerable evidence to
show that dinosaurs and human footprints have been found together by
earlier excavators. One of them was Dr. Roland T. Bird from Harvard
University and the American Museum of Natural History, at that time a
leading geologist and paleontologist. He reported that a ledge of
limestone had been ripped up in the Paluxy River area by a spring
flashflood. In one of his sketches, he revealed that tracks were taken and
put on display at the American Museum of Natural History, at Southern
Methodist University, at the University of Texas, at Baylor University and
at Brookland College. At the top of the sketch a series of human-like
tracks can be seen, including a notation by Dr. Bird himself, "Single
giant track to American Museum of Natural History". Thus, we find that his
drawings indicate there had been earlier findings similar to those we have
made in our present excavations. This has been confirmed by taped
interviews with local Glen Rose residents. Charlie Moss found the first
human tracks in the Paluxy riverbed in 1910. Ernest "Bull" Adams followed
this trail of tracks and documented their existence. Jim Ryals and Emmit
McFall found other footprints through the years. Geologist Clifford
Burdick, Ph.D., verified human tracks in the 1940's. Dr. Cecil Daugherty
led large groups to the prints for years. Stan Taylor, Mike Turnage, Fred
Beirle, Wilbur Fields and John Morris, Ph.D., added their own

Dinosaur death theory 'just a myth'
Highfield, Science Editor
popular belief that a vast crater near Mexico is the scar left by an
asteroid which wiped out dinosaurs 65 million years ago is questioned
The Chicxulub crater on the Yucatan Peninsula led many
scientists to conclude that fast-moving debris from the asteroid's impact
would have superheated the atmosphere so that vegetation burst into flames
over much of the planet.
According to this theory, ground
temperatures soared to about 1,000C, igniting forest fires across the
world and boiling land organisms alive. The soot and smoke thrown into the
atmosphere may have helped block sunlight, causing global cooling and
plunging the planet into winter.
But a study published today
in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, by Dr Gerta Keller
of Princeton University, Dr Thierry Adatte from the University of
Neuchatel and Dr Wolfgang Stinnesbeck from the University of Karlsruhe,
suggests the crater predates the mass extinction by 300,000
Their conclusion came after they studied strata in a
core drilled from the crater.
The team suggests a more
complex series of events such as an additional asteroid impact, perhaps in
the Shiva Crater in India, volcanism, and climate
The Truth About The 'Hobbits'
Chris Stringer holds a cast of the 18,000-year-old
I send this to you because I'm confident
your audience would appreciate some help interpreting what has happened in
the last couple of days in the world of mainstream anthropology, an event
famed Darwinist Richard Dawkins calls the most important development in
their field in decades--the discovery of tiny "human" fossils on an island
As with all such discoveries, this creature is
trumpeted as "human" for no other reasons than it walked upright,
and it was found to be too recent (18,000 years ago) to qualify as a
so-called "pre" human. Like all those other prehumans, it has not a bone
in its body that looks human. The bones are all more robust, relatively
speaking, than humans, the arms are longer, the fingers are longer, and
the skull is about as far from human as can be imagined. Larger nasal
opening, larger eye sockets, pronounced brow ridges, no forehead, tiny
brain, but teeth clearly more human-like than chimp or
This, my friends, is
"human" in name only. What it REALLY is, but what no mainstream
anthropologist will dare consider, much less agree with, is an Agogwe, the
smallest and most human-like of the four main types of Hominoids. I write
about this extensively in Part III of my book, "Everything You Know Is
Wrong," but the gist is this... Around the world, on every continent
except Antarctica, exist living relics of the Miocene Era (25 million
years ago), when about 50 species of tailless apes lived and far
outnumbered monkeys in the fossil record. Of those apes, many had "short
arms" unsuited for quadrupedal movement. (Quadrupeds need arms longer than
their legs to move efficiently and comfortably.) Short armers had arms the
same length as their legs. (Humans have arms shorter than their legs.)
Thus, the "short armed" Miocene apes are left off the radar of modern
anthropology because it is obvious they could only have moved comfortably
in an upright posture. But since bepedality is considered a trait that our
primate ancestors somehow "learned" as they emerged from trees to make
their way on savannas (filled with feral cats they could not have hoped to
compete with), anything that looks like it might have walked out of the
Miocene has to be blotted from the record. Why? Because if there were
upright walkers millions of years ago, then what are fobbed off as
"prehumans" were not prehuman at all, but a continuation of Miocene apes
that walked upright. This would leave humans off the archeological
flowchart of life on Earth, which at present simply can't be considered
because of the ugly can of worms it would open.
If I'm right and
mainstream anthropologists are wrong, then what are their precious,
indispensible prehumans? Hominoids. Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, Abominable
Snowman, Almas, and last but not least, the pygmy of the group,
generically called the Agogwes. They are small, 3-4 feet tall, hair
covered, and dominate folklore tales all over the jungles of Indonesia,
Sumatra, Java, etc. (exactly where the new Hobbit bones were found). These
creatures have been known and written about for 40 years. There is nothing
new about them except to the mainstreamers who wouldn't be caught dead
educating themselves to things they have been trained to believe are
It is ironic that, to defend their position, the
mainstreamers who discovered the Hobbit bones are now saying, "We think
they're humans because people on the island have folklore stories about
them that go back hundreds of years." Now, what happens when WE Hominoid
researchers say to THEM, "Folklore stories of Hominoids go back hundreds
of years on every continent except Antarctica"? They virtually scream at
us that we're being "unscientific" and should be dismissed as idiots or
worse for even suggesting that the myths and legends of benighted savages
should be taken at face value.
To cut to the
chase and give you something you can take to the bank, the Hobbits are
flatly and definitely not human. They are the bones of Agogwe type (pygmy)
Hominoids. No tests will be performed that will show they are remotely
related to humans. If mitochondrial DNA can be recovered (which should be
possible because it's been recovered from 30,000 year old Neanderthals),
it will be in the range of difference from humans that Neanderthals
have proved to be. (Neanderthals are representative of the Almas type of
Hominoid and not human, either.)
Time will show that what I'm
saying is right and the mainstreamers are wrong. Book it.

'Hobbit' joins human family
Scientists have discovered a new and tiny species of

colonising the world. The three-foot (one-metre) tall species -
dubbed "the Hobbit" - lived on Flores island until at least 12,000 years

|Dwarf skeleton could rewrite human
Associated Press, THE JERUSALEM
Oct. 28, 2004
In an astonishing discovery that could
rewrite the history of human evolution, scientists say they have found the
skeleton of a new human species, a dwarf, marooned for eons in a tropical
Lost World while modern man rapidly colonized the rest of the planet. The
finding on a remote Indonesian island has stunned anthropologists like no
other in recent memory. It is a fundamentally new creature that bears more
of a resemblance to fictional, barefooted hobbits than modern humans. Yet
biologically speaking, it may have been closely related to us and perhaps
even shared its caves with our ancestors.
(90-centimeter-tall) adult female skeleton found in a cave is believed
18,000 years old. It smashes the long-cherished scientific belief that our
species, Homo sapiens, systematically crowded out other upright-walking
human cousins beginning 160,000 years ago and that we've had Earth to
ourselves for tens of thousands of years.

demonstrates that Africa, the acknowledged cradle of humanity, does not
hold all the answers to persistent questions of how - and where - we came
"This finding really does rewrite our knowledge of human
evolution," said Chris Stringer, who directs human origins studies at the
Natural History Museum in London. "And to have them present less than
20,000 years ago is frankly astonishing."
Scientists called the
dwarf skeleton "the most extreme" figure to be included in the extended
human family. Certainly, she is the shortest.
She is the best
example of a trove of fragmented bones that account for as many as seven
of these primitive individuals that lived on the equatorial island of
Flores, located east of Java and northwest of Australia. The mostly intact
female skeleton was found in September 2003.
Scientists have named
the extinct species Homo floresiensis, or Flores Man, and details appear
in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature.
The specimens' ages
range from 95,000 to 12,000 years old, meaning they lived until the
threshold of recorded human history and perhaps crossed paths with the
ancestors of today's islanders.
Flores Man was hardly formidable.
His grapefruit-sized brain was two-thirds smaller than ours, and closer to
the brains of today's chimpanzees and transitional prehuman species in
Africa than vanished 2 million years ago. Yet Flores Man made stone tools,
lit fires and organized group hunts for meat. Bones of fish, birds and
rodents found near the skeleton were charred, suggesting they were
All this suggests Flores Man lived communally and
communicated effectively, perhaps even verbally.
"It is arguably
the most significant discovery concerning our own genus in my lifetime,"
said anthropologist Bernard Wood of George Washington University, who
reviewed the research independently.
Discoveries simply "don't get
any better than that," proclaimed Robert Foley and Marta Mirazon Lahr of
Cambridge University in a written analysis. To others, the species'
baffling combination of slight dimensions and coarse features bears almost
no meaningful comparison either to modern humans or to our larger, archaic

Homo at all, even if it was a recent contemporary. But they are unsure
where to classify it. "I don't think anybody can pigeonhole this into the
very simple-minded theories of what is human," anthropologist Jeffrey
Schwartz of the University of Pittsburgh. "There is no biological reason
to call it Homo. We have to rethink what it is."
For now, most
researchers have been limited to examining digital photographs of the
specimens. The female partial skeleton and other fragments are stored in a
laboratory in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Researchers from Australia and
Indonesia found the partial skeleton 13 months ago in a shallow limestone
cave known as Liang Bua. The cave, which extends into a hillside for about
130 feet (40 meters), has been the subject of scientific analysis since
1964. Fenced off and patrolled by guards, it is surrounded by coffee

kind of 'freak' that we just happened to stumble across," said one of the
discoverers, radiocarbon dating expert Richard G. Roberts of the
University of Wollongong in Australia. But the environment in which Flores
Man lived was indeed peculiar, and scientists say it probably contributed
to the specimen's unusually small dimensions. Millenia ago, Flores was a
kind of a looking-glass world, a real-life Middle-earth inhabited by a
menagerie of fantastical creatures like giant tortoises, elephants as
small as ponies and rats as big as hunting dogs.

dragons rather than the treasure-hoarding Smaug described by novelist

Dwarf hominid lived in
Indonesia just 18,000 years ago.
A new human-like species -
a dwarfed relative who lived just 18,000 years ago in the
company of pygmy elephants and giant lizards - has been
discovered in Indonesia.
Skeletal remains show that the
hominins, nicknamed 'hobbits' by some of their discoverers,
were only one metre tall, had a brain one-third the size of
that of modern humans, and lived on an isolated island long
after Homo sapiens had migrated through the South
"My jaw dropped to my knees," says
Peter Brown, one of the lead authors and a
palaeoanthropologist at the University of New England in
The find has excited researchers with
its implications - if unexpected branches of humanity are
still being found today, and lived so recently, then who knows
what else might be out there? The species' diminutive stature
indicates that humans are subject to the same evolutionary
forces that made other mammals shrink to dwarf size when in
genetic isolation and under ecological pressure, such as on an
island with limited resources.
The new species, reported this week in
Nature, was found by Australian and Indonesian
scientists in a rock shelter called Liang Bua on the island of
Flores. The team unearthed a near-complete skeleton, thought
to be a female, including the skull, jaw and most teeth, along
with bones and teeth from at least seven other individuals. In
the same site they also found bones from Komodo dragons and an
extinct pygmy elephant called Stegodon.
The find has been classed as
a new species - Homo
The hominin bones were not
fossilized, but in a condition the team described as being
like "mashed potatoes", a result of their age and the damp
conditions. "The skeleton had the consistency of wet blotting
paper, so a less experienced excavator might have trashed the
find," says Richard Roberts of the University of Wollongong,
"Only the Indonesians were present at
the actual moment of discovery - the Australian contingent had
departed back to Oz," says Roberts. He credits Thomas Sutikna
of the Indonesian Centre for Archaeology in Jakarta for the
excellent handling of the samples. The success has inspired
national pride at the centre, the researchers say. "This is
very important for Indonesian society," says co-author R. P.
The discovery is prompting increased scrutiny of sites
on other Southeast Asian islands, both to look for more of the
same species and to place it in context with Homo
sapiens and Homo erectus, our closest relative.
Homo erectus was found to have lived on the nearby
island of Java as long as 1.6 million years ago; the team
suggests that the Flores hominins may be their
Dating more bones could help determine whether the
species was a short-lived branch of human evolution or
survived for longer. Preliminary dating places it at about
70,000 years ago, but it may extend back 800,000 years. "We
were hoping we might find a little hominin from that early,"
says author Michael Morwood, an archaeologist at the
University of New England.
In the meantime, researchers are
hoping to find DNA in the bones, which would help to clarify
the relationships between species. DNA has previously been
extracted from European Neanderthals living in the same time
period. But they have so far failed to find DNA in the teeth
of the Stegodon found in the same cave, says Brown.

The Flores find
For the archaeologists who

Peter Brown: In early
September 2003 Mike Morwood brought the cast of a tooth to my
laboratory. It had been recovered from the excavations at
Liang Bua. I realized that while it was broadly human it could
not have been from a modern human, so it was exciting. More
exciting was when Mike announced that the continuing
excavations had uncovered a fairly complete skeleton. We
quickly arranged to go to Jakarta.
Morwood: The feeling was one of tremendous excitment.
We had previously recovered a few very unusual hominid bones
and teeth from the Pleistocene levels of Liang Bua, but now we
had a major part of a skeleton, including the

forensic analysis by Peter Brown indicated that she was an
adult female aged about 30.

second of seeing the skull and mandible I realized it was
important. Mike and Thomas Sutikna (the archaeologist
primarily responsible for the day-to-day running of the
excavation) report that when I measured the skull's

chimpanzee and was alive perhaps as recently as 14,000 years
ago. It seemed impossible. Still does!

epoch [between roughly 7 million and 2 million years ago] in
Africa. However, they have very different facial skeletons and

projecting face). There are also no other examples of hominins
dwarfing in the way that some other mammals often do on

surprises, is that a silly question?
PB: Until the
discovery at Liang Bua the broad pattern of human
palaeontology was starting to look predictable - not such a
bad thing for those of us who teach the subject. After this
discovery, and perhaps an increased focus on island Southeast
Asia, I predict a few major surprises ahead. Researchers will
start to look a lot more closely at the isolated teeth and jaw
fragments recovered from cave deposits on the Asian mainland.
Some of these, previously thought to be the remains of a small
ape, may turn out to be something else.
own feeling is that future archaeological discoveries in
Southeast Asia will show that human dispersal and cultural
change were much more complex than previously believed, and
that Asia may have played a much more prominent role in these
issues than adherents of the simplistic 'Out of Africa'
explanation for everything would have us
Does this change your own feelings
about the uniqueness and modernity of Homo
PB: Yes and no. Although it
was a member of our genus, H. floresiensis is unlikely
to have contributed to the gene pool of H. sapiens. So
for me, its importance is not in the evolutionary story of
modern humans, but in how the broad group from which modern
humans evolved may have adapted and evolved to different
ecosystems. Prior to this finding it would not have been
thought that a hominin with the brain size, and possibly
limited cognitive ability, of H. floresiensis could
make the type of tools associated with the skeleton, or even
get to Flores at all. I suppose that this is what challenges
existing notions of what it is to be human the

A stranger from Flores
When a new fossil is found
it is often claimed that it will rewrite the anthropological
textbooks. But in the case of an astonishing new discovery
from Indonesia, this claim is fully justified.
The conventional view of early human
evolution is that the species Homo erectus was our
first relative to spread out of Africa, some 2 million years
ago. The spread that our cousin achieved is indicated by a
1.8-million-year-old, primitive form of H. erectus
found at Dmanisi in Georgia, and by finds at slightly younger
sites in China and the Indonesian island of Java. It was not
thought that H. erectus travelled any farther towards
Australia than this, because although early humans could have
walked to Java from Southeast Asia at times of low sea level,
the islands east of Java, always separated from it by deep
water, seemed beyond their reach.

floresiensis is tiny compared to modern day

However, six years ago a
team of archaeologists, led by Australian Mike Morwood,
published a paper claiming that a site on the island of
Flores, 500 kilometres east of Java, contained stone tools
dating from about 800,000 years ago1.
Many researchers (myself included) doubted these claims,
because if they were true they implied that H. erectus
had moved beyond Java and might have used boats to do so. Such
a development was thought to be unique to Homo
When I then heard rumours about the discovery of an
early human skeleton in a cave on Flores, I was ready to be
surprised. However, nothing could have prepared me for how big
(or small) that surprise would be.
found at Liang Bua, a cave on Flores, is of an adult who was
only about one metre tall with a brain size of only 380 cubic
centimetres. That is less than one-third of the average brain
size for a modern human and much smaller even than those of
the primitive H. erectus skulls from Dmanisi.
The Flores skull
shows a unique mixture of primitive and advanced
characteristics. The brain is the same size as a chimpanzee's,
the brain-case is low with a prominent brow ridge at the
front, and the lower jaw completely lacks a chin. However, as
in modern humans, the face is small and delicate. It is tucked
under the brain rather than thrust out in front and the teeth
are similar in size to our own.
The skeleton shows
a similarly strange mixture of features. The hip-bone
resembles those of the pre-human African species known as
australopithecines (meaning 'southern apes'). But the legs
are slight, and enough detail has been preserved to
show that this creature definitely walked on two legs, as we
So what was this strange creature, and
what was it doing on Flores? The authors of the two
Nature papers about the discovery and its context have
had to make difficult choices in deciding how to classify the
creature, although it is clear that this person was definitely
not a modern human. The small brain size and the hip-bone
shape might favour classification as an australopithecine,
whereas the size and shape of the skull might suggest a
primitive form of H. erectus.
This skull almost certainly
belonged to a woman, who lived 18,000 years
Given the unique
combination of features, the authors have decided to give the
specimen a new name: Homo floresiensis. This means,
literally, 'man of Flores', although the authors recognize
that the Liang Bua skeleton is probably that of a
The researchers argue that this species made the tools
found in the Liang Bua cave, and may have preyed on one of the
few other mammals that had also managed to reach Flores: a
tiny form of the extinct, elephant-like
Of a certain age
It seems that
Flores man (or woman) still has one more surprise up its
sleeve: its age. Astonishingly, two methods of dating agree in
placing the skeleton at only about 18,000 years old. Its
ancestors, probably a form of H. erectus, could have
reached the island in the hunt for stegodons a million years
ago, either by building some kind of boat or by walking across
a short-lived land-bridge.
Their resulting isolation and
inbreeding may have led them to evolve a small body size, in a
process known from other mammals as 'island dwarfing'. Because
of climate change or the impact of modern humans, who began to
spread from Africa around 100,000 years ago, the strange story
of H. floresiensis eventually ended in extinction. But
modern humans must surely have encountered this tiny relative
of ours, and the discovery shows how much we still have to
learn about the story of human evolution.
