Hidden Archaeology is a series that explores “out of place artifacts” or ooparts. It is an area of archaeology that few scientists dare to explore. It is the gray area of history that no one talks about. They call it “cult” or “hidden” archaeology. I like to think of myself as a modern day pioneer of truth. Each artifact gives evidence that will lead to our true history. Many say North America is the land of the forgetful because so many don’t even remember where they came from after two generations. I created this documentary series to probe the roots of human life and human values. I want to explore myths, legends, and folk tales across North America. I hope this journey will lead to great discoveries and knowledge for all of humankind.
Here is an example. We are conditioned from a young age to believe that Columbus discovered America, but he didn’t technically discover America. If you pick up almost any history book, you will read that he discovered America. Many know that is simply not true, but we teach our children that is the history of the United States. Once you start to question one truth, it begs the question what other things could be inaccurate?
Columbus was the first European explorer to reach America, but he most certainly did not discover it. In fact, he landed in San Salvador, which is not technically America. If you start with the basic idea of his journey, you might ask did he have a map? Columbus used an ancient map called the “Piri Reis”. This map supposedly has ancient origins because we know today it was created before the freezing of Antarctica based on new technologies. During his life, they would not have had the technology to have such a precise map. How did he get the map to go to America, if no one discovered America? It does not make sense.
People have inhabited North America it seems since the beginning of time.
The Kennewick Man, a mummy that is over 9000 years old was found in Washington State. The Clovis civilization discovered in South Carolina dates from around the end of the ice age about 11,000 years before christ. The topper civilization of South Carolina was discovered to have tools dating back 50,000 years. The Nefilm, mentioned in the Bible are believed to be a race of giants that inhabited the earth before a great flood. Giant bones have been found in New York, Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, West Virginia, Nevada, Kentucky, and all over the world. There was a carved stone found in Tennessee nicknamed the “Bat Creek” stone that has ancient Phoenician or Hebrew writing inscribed into it. Roman coins were found in Alabama. So why are none of these artifacts or stories part of our modern day historical record?
What we believe to be true comes from our knowledge of life. If we are taught from a young age that something is true, then it is hard to challenge that view. People need solid evidence to be convinced. I spoke to a psychologist to ask him if there was a physiological reason why we would not be able to handle the truth. He told me that there is something called the A priori effect. The shortest definition is that Human knowledge is independent of all experience as opposed to empirical knowledge. In Latin it translates as “from the cause to the effect”. In layman’s terms, that stops us from correcting what we know to be false. It is a psychological term that describes the way our minds handle deductive reasoning. For example, if one thing that we hold true our entire lives is false. Let’s say I told you that strawberries are purple and not red. Because you always thought strawberries were red, you might wonder are blueberries really purple? It starts the chain reaction of questions about every thing that you know to be true. It is all based on what you believe as an individual. Many factors influence peoples belief system, hence the tremendous diversity of culture around the world. One shared trait in all culture’s society is we tend to shun people and things that are different or misunderstood. In fact, people go so far as to demonize ideas so they can continue to believe what they think to be true. I actually heard a preacher say that “fossils were the handy work of the devil” and that is simply absurd.
I think mysterious artifacts begin the search for the truth of our history. Join me on my adventure to explore the mysteries of the unknown. The discovery of these artifacts worldwide challenges us to wake up. Great thinkers throughout our written history have always maintained that it is vital to understand the past for the future of humankind. Exploring this with me makes archaeology really exciting because you are at the point of discovery, on an expedition, seeing things come up for the first time.
The first program will explore the mystery of an article that detailed a discovery of an ancient Egyptian pyramid in the Grand Canyon.
