This very intriguing story was shared by T.S., and when I saw it, it went directly into the "finals" folder because I knew I'd have to blog about it because, as regular readers of this website know, I just love the topic of OOPARTS, or "Out Of Place ARTifacts." Just why this story may qualify for an OOPARTS story is the subject of today's high octane speculation.

However, even without my high octane speculation today, the story deserves some attention for something it does say, and for the implications of that admission, an admission, which, as we shall see, is carefully disguised. Here's the story:

Note the picture that begins the article, and note what it says:

Ancient Projectile Points

The archaeologists discovered 13 full and fragmented projectile points, ranging from 0.5 to 2 inches and razor-sharp. The points, carbon-dated to approximately 15,700 years ago, predate the Clovis fluted points by 3,000 years found throughout North America and the previously found points at the Cooper’s Ferry site in Idaho by 2,300 years.


Previously, Davis and other researchers working the Cooper’s Ferry site had found simple flakes and pieces of bone that indicated human presence about 16,000 years ago. But the discovery of projectile points reveals new insights into the way the first Americans expressed complex thoughts through technology at that time, Davis said.


The points are revelatory not just in their age, but in their similarity to projectile points found in Hokkaido, Japan, dating to 16,000-20,000 years ago, Davis said. Their presence in Idaho adds more detail to the hypothesis that there are early genetic and cultural connections between the ice age peoples of Northeast Asia and North America.  (Emphasis added)

Now notice what has been admitted: (1) these projectile points are a technological leap beyond the "simple flakes and pieces of bone" previously discovered from this age, and (2) they are similar in age and appearance to projectile points found in Japan. The conclusion of the article is that they are indications of "early genetic and cultural connections" between the peoples of Northeast Asia and North America.

This is a not-too-subtle bow to the prevailing "land bridge" theory, that American Indian tribes migrated from  from Asia to the Americas via a land bridge that once existed across the Bering strait, and then gradually southward through North America to South America. The trouble is, the land bridge theory posits an age slightly older than the projectiles, which would require a prolonged period of "cultural preservation."

The alternative theory, and one which I subscribe to, is that the ancient cultures were more ocean-faring than is usually suspected, and that contact may have been maintained via the seas long after the land bridge, if there ever was one, disappeared.

But there's something else to notice here, and its a whopper doozie, and again, carefully disguised: these projectile points are very finely executed objects, and older than the previously discovered bones and flakes and other tools. In other words, the record shows, not progress, but devolution, a similar feature that I and others have observed about other sites (the oldest of these being - you guessed it - Giza, where the oldest layer of construction is also the highest in terms of its craftsmanship and execution.)

What is very intriguing to note about the picture of some of these projectile points are the indications on some of them of regular striations, perhaps the result of their fashioning by some other tool.  But in looking at the picture, these projectile points appear to have been very finely executed.  That regularity of striations suggests, in turn, another possibility: a very high octane off-the-end-of-the-twig speculative possibility: what if these apparent striations were an attempt to mimic or imitate something that their makers had actually seen? What if they might be an attempt to imitate something actually machined?

That's a very wild and woolly speculation, I grant you, so I'll just stick with the other subtle implication that maybe, just maybe, we're looking at the beginning of the breakdown of the land bridge theory...

Our thanks again to T.S. for bringing this article to our attention,

See you on the flip side...

    Flint is a very brittle material, it has to be ‘knapped’ to create sharp, cutting edges. This hammering process creates the scalloped and striated appearance as slivers of flint break off. It also blunts very readily. But, the really astonishing thing is that some neo-lithic people knew that by firing the sharpened edges in a kiln in a very narrow high heat range (around 1500 degrees C?) they could preserve the sharp cutting edge.
    I wonder, by what process of thought did they arrive at that? Which of us today is even capable of such reasoning, experimentation or skill? We have hugely devolved indeed!

      Water! Observations of water entering frozen form, suggests, that molten stone would have similar liquid behaviour, at high temperature.

      Not unlike the process of hardening clay, when giving it smooth surface by glazing.

      Second sight allows for the material to be “felt”, while studying its essence under duress of elemental forces.

      Some people talk to pot plants, and see the Green Man.

        Yes, good point – the observation of water in it’s various states!
        I read of this some years ago where a neolithic community in France had excelled in producing and ‘exporting’ these sharp flint tools as far as Britain.
        I used the term kiln, but this was long before pottery items were discovered. I don’t think it is now known how they created the high temperatures required. And it was only a narrow window because if under or over fired the flints failed.
        Our human (super-human?) ancestors must be shaking their heads at us!

    Off topic: the Rothschild & C. bank has announced delisting from the Paris Stock Exchange, where they have been for 185 years. Even financial MSM has had to admit that “there is a disturbance in the force”…

    The compass provides means to travel, and return to point of origin, and when man is created in the image of an 8-point compass, it produces a navigator.

    When Elohim-Yahweh is translated, as ‘planets and solstice’, it produces a culture, that is based on the compass, which also is the basic pyramid ground plan.

    The “out of India” hypothesis is debunked, by Scythian martial art development in the 7th century BC, that produced the ‘Parthian shot’, as a compass derivative.

    I assume, that the flawed academic hypotheses of “aimless wanderings” are promoted by Cain’s descent, that never swore by the compass.

    • anakephalaiosis on February 9, 2023 at 1:54 am

      BTW, promoting “aimless wanderings” is an attempt, to produce ‘brainless masses’ and ‘clueless goyim’, by erasing the memory of the compass, morally and culturally.

      The mass hypnosis of the Roman Catholic Church rotates around the papal cult as idolatry, and not the North Star, that produces the basic 4-point compass.

      The political demonisation of the swastika becomes a Roman Catholic attack, on an ancient Scythian-Israelite compass culture, so that the ‘four rivers’ of Genesis will run dry.

      Roman civilization is slavery, according to Tacitus.

    I don’t know where the “passage of time equals progress” model of history came from (Darwinism?), but it’s a bunch of baloney as far as I’m concerned. I can’t imagine what, besides a conceptual bias, could account for that model — since the empirical data shows nothing like a continuous, linear rise in civilization or technological sophistication in human history or prehistory. I’m surprised this thinly veiled admission of evidence for devolution came out of the American quackademy.

    It’s the same conceptual bias that rules out the possibility that people could traverse the Pacific or Atlantic during prehistory. Because those ancients were so much less sophisticated than we, dontcha know! I say there’s no reason at all that ancient peoples couldn’t have been seafarers. In fact, it would surprise me if, as little as 20,000 years ago, they were not.

    The European origins for Clovis go back to at least 1958 and a book published that year No Stone Unturned. Interesting if you read novels for juvenile readers this would not surprise you. There is also a mastodon kill site that is dated 130,000 years so these points are rather young in comparison.

    Can someone give me a summary of current methods of artifact dating methods and their (rough) accuracy?
    Soil layers, adjacent digs and finds, carbon dating?


  7. Robert Barricklow on February 8, 2023 at 1:33 pm

    Yes, the devolution continues.
    A theme that is ever-present today.
    Man & machine.
    Hell, the universe as a machine.
    When, the universe “lives”.
    Biological versus machine.
    Where the lines, in today’s world; are purposely blurring.
    The machine metaphor is extremely strong, and hard to let go of.
    Especially, when one is raised in a medium swimming in machines.

    Is there a pendulum swinging from biological to machine to… ?
    Or, something, not quite yet….
    in focus?

    A vital missing “component” player – in the Cosmic War?

    I have read archeologists and historians comment that the first people may have settled in Ohio as early as 40,000 years ago and this was in literature dating back about 30 years ago. In addition to the emerging hypothesis that the American Indians actually sailed from East Asia to West Coast of the Americas. There’s also a small group of archeologist who have a theory that the first people to settle Eastern sailed from Western Europe to North America via Greenland and Iceland. The theory is not too far fetched when one considers the sticking similarities between the Clovis arrowheads on the coast of Virginia dating back 12,000 years and the Clovis arrowheads in France from the same time period. Also, it’s important to note that this thread of Clovis arrowheads coming from France are finely crafted compared to most of the contemporary arrowheads. It’s true that Virginia is a long ways from Northeastern Canada, but if one considers that men have been in the Americas far longer than mainstream academia would allow. Therefore, its possible the settlers coming from Europe sailed via Greenland to modern day Canada at least about 14,000 years ago.

      Solutrean hypothesis
      Discovery channel aired and then released on DVD a docudrama called Ice Age Columbus.
      There is a book I never read called – Across Atlantic Ice: The Origin of America’s Clovis Culture, which is $35ish on Amazon.
