Episode #196: The Hidden History of the Human Race - Part 4

As we continue our reading of The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson, we look at paleolithic tools, evidence of fire usage including hearths and slag indicative of kilns, and bones of extinct animals with stone tools embedded in them, in geological contexts that place them into extremely ancient times, up to tens of millions of years old.
Artifacts in glacial till in Canada, in pliocene sediments in Argentina, and advanced neolith tools in Hueyatlaco, Mexico, all point to hominids in the Americas for hundreds of thousands, sometimes millions, of years.
We also look at how the scientific and paleoanthropological establishment has worked to discredit and bury these finds.

Episode #195: The Hidden History of the Human Race - Part 3

Continuing our reading through The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson, we look at more examples of ancient stone tools found in very ancient contexts through the late 1800's and into the early 1900's. In Portugal, France, Brazil, Chile, and the U.S., there were discoveries of eolithic and paleolithic tools, that were studied by many scientists and paleontologists of the day, and presented at conferences and scientific congresses for study and debate. Many times the scientists of the time decided the tools were genuine evidence of very early humans, and yet much of this evidence is now completely forgotten and does not appear in modern discussions, scientific literature, or textbooks.

Episode #194: Ultrasonic Technology with Jeffrey Appling

We are joined by master jeweler Jeffrey Appling to discuss ultrasonic technology in the use of cutting and shaping stone. Jeffrey has been using an ultrasonic drilling and coring machine to cut, drill, and shape even the hardest of stones and jewels with ease. The bit of the machine does not spin, the ultrasonic vibration simply allows the bit to sink into the stone, so it is possible to core out shapes that are more complex than a simple circle, and do it in minutes with relatively little work.

We talk about the machine and how it works, and we talk about the possibility that the ancient Builders may have used something similar to this machine, only probably much larger in many cases, to do some of the astonishing work we see at certain ancient sites.
We also look at some of Jeffrey's jewelry work, and discuss the interesting possibility that an old mission building in California may show signs of containing very old, high tech stonework concealed within rough adobe and cobblestone walls.

Be sure to take a look at Jeffrey's blog and his YouTube Channel to see more of his work, and his research into the possibility of the ancients using ultrasonic technology.

Jeffrey sent us a bunch of images which we discuss on the show. Here they are, more or less in the order we discussed them:
