  1. Educational awards, doctorates, etc. Degrees count for many things. I'd start there.
  2. Homo sapiens – that’s us and our direct ancestors, and long thought to be pretty much the only show in town for hundreds of thousands of years – had a rival cousin as recently as 236,000 years ago, according to South African scientists. The species, Homo naledi, was discovered in caves near Johannesburg in 2013, and the researchers have now announced that some of the bones are less than a quarter of a million years old, which would mean that the primitive humans – who had much smaller brains than homo sapiens – were running around in Africa at the same time as our direct forebears. And not only that, but Homo naledi also appear to have engaged in the relatively advanced practice of burying their dead....... ............ “This is a humbling discovery for science,” said Berger, a paleoanthropologist. “It's reminding us that the fossil record can hide things … we can never assume that what we have tells the whole story.” ...............The discoveries have encouraged other scientists to rethink human evolution. Rick Potts, director of the Human Origins Program at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History, told the Washington Post that the discovery should prompt people to question the familiar image of a stooped chimp-like creature evolving into an upright, modern human. “We've had for so long this view that human evolution was a matter of inevitability represented by that march, that progress,” he told the paper. “But now that narrative of human evolution has become one of adaptability. There was a lot of evolution and extinction of populations and lineages that made it through some pretty tough times, and we're the beneficiary of that.”
  3. Come now. I've a dragon in my garage. Edit to add: The Dragon In My Garage by Carl Sagan
  4. Thought this worthy of a new thread. Controversial study claims humans reached Americas 100,000 years earlier than thought Broken mastodon bones hint that Homo sapiens wasn’t the first hominin to get to the New World. Ancient humans settled in North America around 130,000 years ago, suggests a controversial study — pushing the date back more than 100,000 years earlier than most scientists accept. The jaw-dropping claim, made in Nature1, is based on broken rocks and mastodon bones found in California that a team of researchers say point to human activity. Their contention, if correct, would force a dramatic rethink of when and how the Americas were first settled — and who by. Most scientists subscribe to the view that Homo sapiens arrived in North America less than 20,000 years ago. The latest study raises the possibility that another hominin species, such as Neanderthals or a group known as Denisovans, somehow made it from Asia to North America before that and flourished.
  5. You state people have "pretty convincing trail cams photos," yet they've chosen not to publish them. One in the hand, my friend, is superior to those two in the bush.
  6. You outta see my unicorn videos. I've chosen not to share them.
  7. Dear Shawn: I was reading some of the stories about Mt. Saint Helen on the message boards and wanted to share this one. I only ask that you withhold my name. I was a National Guardsman at the Mount Saint Helen site and this is the first time I have ever spoken about what I saw firsthand. I lived in Spokane, Washington and was 24 at the time this all took place. I have read some of the other stories and they only tell part of the story. I was placed on a special cleanup crew farther up the mountain. A large tent was set up and it was be guarded by armed soldiers who were not part of the guard. There were numerous soldiers on the scene that were not members of the guard. We were given a briefing by soldier who said that “after he spoke to us, we would forget about him and what he said at the end of the mission”. This was strange as we never dealt with anything before. Myself and four other guardsmen were told to follow a group of soldiers and not to speak to each other and to remain very quiet overall. We were told to get into a jeep and wait. We sat in the jeep for maybe a half hour. Eventually another jeep arrived carrying a civilian and another member of the military. The civilian was brought into the tent and he emerged a few minutes later followed by a large hairy creature. It looked like a large man covered in fur and the best way to describe it was like “Beast” from X-Men only brown. The creature looked to have some burns and had a bandage on its arm. At first we were afraid but when it walked by we could see its eyes and it just looked very sad and somber. He climbed into the back of a pickup with the civilian and the two were speaking in a weird language I had never heard. It would cough at times. We followed the truck to different areas. There were 5 total stops. Each time we stopped we were told to follow the civilian and the creature. Each time we followed them to rocky areas where there were caves. The creature would make a sound and then listen. At the first area he made a sound and we all just waited in silence. After a few minutes, the creature looked at the civilian and then at the ground. The civilian at one point touched its shoulder and called for a canteen to give the creature a drink. The same thing happened at the next area but this time there was a response to the sound. After a few minutes two soldiers emerged from the cave carrying a badly burned creature just like the one with the civilian. The creature bent down next to it and looked it over for about five minutes. It then spoke softly with the civilian. It turned and walked back to the truck and we were told to follow as we were walking away we heard a shot and we knew it was one of the soldiers putting the creature out of its misery. There was no response at the third or fourth site but at the fifth there was another return sound to the creature. This time it was different and soldiers carried out a creature with a badly burned left leg. We were then ordered to all help get a very large stretcher from the truck and to help place the creature on it and carry it back to the truck. We then immediately returned to the base camp. The creature was carried into the tent while the other creature and the civilian spoke. We were ordered to stay in the jeep until we were to be debriefed. As the creature turned to walk into the tent it looked at us and made a waving gesture with its hand. We took it as a thank you for what we had done. By the time we were ordered out of the jeep we were all in shock. We were called over to an area to be debriefed and it was just strange. I will never forget what was said because it was just not what was expected. I thought I would hear “You took an oath and now you need to live up to it for your country with a threat also implied. A different high ranking soldier just said “look, do you all really want an explanation? You saw what we were doing. These creatures live in these areas; they mean no harm and want to be left alone. Do you really want to do anything that may cause them trouble? They are like us in a lot of ways. If you need or want to talk about this just wait about 30 years, by that time there will likely be no reason to keep them a secret”. We were then ordered back to the guard camp because “they were breaking it up so nobody saw too much and knew everything that happened”. We did not speak of it and after a few months I just took the attitude that these things live out there and honestly my life is no different because of it. I only bring it up now because people have been writing a lot about MT. Saint Helen and I believe that the whole story should be told. I will also say this. I like to camp and hike and have done so many times throughout the Northwest. Every time I would look for signs of these creatures, tracks, listen for sounds etc. I never saw or heard anything other than what I did that day on Mt. Saint Helen.
  8. It's wishful thinking. It's confirmation bias.
  9. These are the ones most telepathically active, too.
  10. February 3, 2014 LINCOLN – A mountain lion was killed by a vehicle on U.S. Hwy. 20 in Sioux County on Feb. 1, according to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. The mountain lion was an adult male weighing approximately 150 pounds that appeared to be in good health. The driver contacted Game and Parks immediately after striking the animal. This is the sixth mountain lion killed by a vehicle in the Pine Ridge since 2007, when a breeding population was first confirmed. Road-killed mountain lions are unfortunate but common for all states that have resident populations, according to Sam Wilson, Game and Parks’ carnivore program manager. Anyone with trail camera photographs or other evidence of mountain lions should contact the agency.
  11. Many states have a variety of deer hunting seasons. Firearm, archery, muzzle-loading, late firearm, etc.
  12. Saw this posted on facebook, today. Part of the caption: " It's looking out from tree as I drive by on country road , window down where there would be no glass reflection . " The poster is serious. Pareidolia strikes deep, into your life it will creep.
  13. Some put great store in imagining images.
  14. Excellent reference, JustAGuy, and btw, fairly amazing you have more plusses than postings. Good on you! (Gave ya one, too.)
