Modern anthropologists and paleontologists are in relative agreement regarding how long modern humans, Homo sapiens, have been in existence. According to mainstream science, the popular belief is that the cultural and technological history of our species is confined to the past 12,000 years. This figure is a culmination based on what we know about evolution and what we have been able to gather through fossil analyzation and dating of artifacts and human remains. Although the subject of human antiquity, also referred to as human origins, does not prompt a great deal of debate there may actually be the need for some. A reexamination of that humans have only existed a mere 12,000 years should be done as there may be evidence to support a…show more content…
Why these findings that show alternate human existence timelines are not taken seriously in the scientific community is not entirely known. Cremo however, has a theory about the process of contrary information suppression and calls it knowledge filtration. Knowledge filtration is a phenomenon by which scientists and other industry professionals accept evidence that supports their own theories while rejecting evidence that is contrary to commonly held findings or beliefs. This suppression of evidence is shown within a few of the findings discussed below. These are each cases in which there were artifacts found that clearly showed that humans could possibly have existed millions, instead of the believed hundreds of thousands, of years ago but were written off. Since this evidence, along with countless other findings, have been rejected we are left only with the accepted views and a possibly incorrect understanding of human antiquity. In 1880 an anatomically modern human skull was found in Castendolo, Italy by a geologist named Ragazzoni. The stratum from which it was taken is assigned to the Astian stage of the Pliocene. According to modern authorities, the Astian belongs to the Middle Pilocene which would give the skull an age of 3-4 million years old. Critics of Ragazzoni’s finding claimed that the artifact must have been placed into these sediment layers recently by act of burial, explaining how and
