Simply put, the view of history taught to us by the modernist is wrong. The world tells a much different story that is amazingly consistent but still dismissed out of hand by academics. These “experts” feel no shame telling native people what they have handed down to each other is wrong, based upon nothing more than a world view taught by western academic institutions with degrees bestowed upon themselves.
I witnessed this first hand during my visit to Serpent Mound in Ohio. My reading on the subject had told me that early on, the scientific community assumed the local native population had built the Serpent Mound. The natives have always denied this, insisting it was built long before they got there.
This was confirmed on my visit as a worker at the visitor center retold the story of the local tribes insisting that an older culture made the mound. There was another question I wanted to ask, but I couldn't bring myself to ask it, because it was so outside the norm that it frankly embarrassed. My reading also claimed that the natives not only insisted that they did not make it, but the people who did were giants standing much taller than they. Some things you save for later.
When I was growing up we learned that after bipedal hominids gained enough cranial capacity, that true humans settled along major river valleys around 5000 years ago. The ancient Sumerian's of Mesopotamia, Egyptians of the Nile, and ancient Chinese around the Yangtze River supposedly developed civilizations that NEVER interacted with each other till much, much later. It was assumed they were not advanced enough to build sea faring vessels or carts that could traverse trade routes, or even find each other. At the time, these early peoples were viewed as only marginally above cavemen, barely able to figure out farming was easier than chasing Woolly Mammoths over the tundra.
This was the early 80’s when school children were taught that Brontosaurus was a dinosaur, Neanderthals were not part of our family tree, and velociraptors didn't have feathers yet. It has been interesting watching what science claims it “knows” on a decade by decade basis. Old theories are constantly being replaced by new ones with the only constant being DO NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT WRITTEN OR ORAL HISTORY. This is the ultimate taboo in academic circles and we all know why whether it is stated overtly or not. Written history would naturally lead us back to the Bible and this is anathema to the academic who is most likely an atheist. Thus, historical research has been relegated to a level of no importance, allowing the creation of a new modernist myth for the origin of man.
If we do allow the Bible into the conversation, we get another option to consider. We then get to entertain the possibility that another paradigm may fit the evidence better. Isn't that what it should really be about? An honest pursuer of knowledge would want more information to consider, not less. To not allow the testimony of the past to influence what we dig out of the ground is nothing but intellectual stupidity.
The early chapters of Genesis teach that after the earth was formed, all life became corrupted, tempted by a serpent being, resulting in judgment by God who sent a flood over the whole earth. All life was washed away except Noah’s family and representatives of all the animals that sought refuge on an ark.
After the flood, mankind all spoke a common language and lived relatively close to one another. This lasted until a descendant of Ham, the Rebel (Nimrod) gained control of the Mesopotamian River Valley already settled by the descendants of Shem. History, tradition, and the term Gibborim strongly suggest that the Rebel was (or became) a giant, a man of renown.
This giant attempted a building project, likely a stepped pyramid called a ziggurat, to reach into the heavens. (Many don’t realize that the first time the Hebrews constructed a pyramid was not in Egypt, but Nimrod’s Empire of Shinar.) God finding this the ultimate act of hubris separated mankind into different tribes, (probably 70 different peoples per Hebrew tradition). This forced mankind to spread out and fill the earth as God intended in the first place.
So far in this brief narrative we have: the fall of mankind, a serpent, a flood, animals on an boat, one language, a giant that rules others, and pyramid building. It would only stand to reason that we should find these same stories in the cultural mix of people today, and frankly we do. From all over the world we hear echoes of these same themes repeatedly.
What the academic community is slowing realizing is that early man did settle into river valleys, but only after once sharing a common history. As people journeyed throughout the earth, they not only settled Mesopotamia, the Nile, and the Yangtze River, but also the Amazon River and the Mississippi River too! Doing this most likely in hundreds of years, not thousands, founding civilizations just as grand and technologically advanced in the Americas as Egypt and Babylon.
Instead of insisting that Asians settled in the Americas via a land bridge 15,000 years ago, why not accept the obvious that early man was not stupid but rather quite intelligent. It would not have been any more difficult for journeys to be made from Europe via Greenland and South America by the Western coast of Africa. Also, the open ocean is not the impregnable barrier that many make it out to be. Mere rafts on ocean currents have been repeatedly shown the ability to travel the largest oceans. If you grant early man a paddle, there would literally be no stopping him.
Historical research, which is just simply reading what has been written: like myths, ships logs of European Explorers, town records, and 19th century Newspapers, have been accumulating evidence that early America was a melting pot long before the English colonies. I believe that what we call native Americans are a really a mix of all three of Noah’s sons who met here starting 3500 years ago. When the Spanish explorers came to the Americas they routinely wrote of giants around 10ft. tall (there is a reason why they called it Patagonia). They also found ruins of huge ancient cites and how can we ignore the step pyramids found in Central America that resemble what started it all in the first place?
As more and more evidence of giant bones are found in town records, pyramids every bit as large as those found in Egypt, and quotes from our own colonist referring to the tall Indian chiefs still alive during the founding of our nation, it can no longer be denied that things were much different than what we were taught in school.
I would like to finish with a small sample of the common history that we all share. Following is a story shared by the Chippewa long before the white man and his religion came here. Notice the hints to Noah’s flood story. Stories like this below is literally found by the hundreds all over the world from many different cultures and nations.
A CHIPPEWA CREATION MYTH
“The Great Serpent soon knew that he would die from his wound, but he and his companions were determined to destroy Nanabozho. They caused the water of the lake to swell upward and to pound against the shore with the sound of many thunders. Madly the flood rolled over the land, over the tracks of Nanabozho, carrying with it rocks and trees. High on the crest of the highest wave floated the wounded Great Serpent. His eyes glared around him, and his hot breath mingled with the hot breath of his many companions.
Nanabozho, fleeing before the angry waters, thought of his Indian children. He ran through their villages, shouting, "Run to the mountaintops! The Great Serpent is angry and is flooding the earth! Run! Run!"
The Indians caught up their children and found safety on the mountains. Nanabozho continued his flight along the base of the western hills and then up a high mountain beyond Lake Superior, far to the north. There he found many men and animals that had escaped from the flood that was already covering the valleys and plains and even the highest hills. Still the waters continued to rise. Soon all the mountains were under the flood, except the high one on which stood Nanabozho.
There he gathered together timber and made a raft. Upon it the men and women and animals with him placed themselves. Almost immediately the mountaintop disappeared from their view, and they floated along on the face of the waters. For many days they floated. At long last, the flood began to subside. Soon the people on the raft saw the trees on the tops of the mountains. Then they saw the mountains and hills, then the plains and the valleys.
When the water disappeared from the land, the people who survived learned that the Great Serpent was dead and that his companions had returned to the bottom of the lake of spirits. There they remain to this day. For fear of Nanabozho, they have never dared to come forth again.”
