Ancient Human Metropolis Found in Africa

By Dan Eden for viewzone. http://mondovista. com/adamscalenda rx.html They have always been there. People noticed them before. But no one could remember who made them -- or why? Until just recently, no one even knew how many there were. Now they are everywhere -- thousands -- no,hundreds of thousands of them! And the story they tell is the most important story of humanity. But it's one we might not be prepared to hear. Something amazing has been discovered in an area of South Africa, about 150 miles inland, west of the port of Maputo. It is the remains of a huge metropolis that measures, in conservative estimates, about 1500 square miles. It's part of an even larger community that is about 10,000 square miles and appears to have been constructed -- are you ready -- from 160,000 to 200,000 BCE! The image [top of page] is a close-up view of just a few hundred meters of the landscape taken from google-earth. The region is somewhat remote and the "circles" have often been encountered by local farmers who assumed they were made by some indigenous people in the past. But, oddly, no one ever bothered to inquire about who could have made them or how old they were. This changed when researcher and author, Michael Tellinger, teamed up with Johan Heine, a local fireman and pilot who had been looking at these ruins from his years flying over the region. Heine had the unique advantage to see the number and extent of these strange stone foundations and knew that their significance was not being appreciated. "When Johan first introduced me to the ancient stone ruins of southern Africa, I had no idea of the incredible discoveries we would make in the year or two that followed. The photographs, artifacts and evidence we have accumulated points unquestionably to a lost and never-before- seen civilization that predates all others -- not by just a few hundred years, or a few thousand years... but many thousands of years. These discoveries are so staggering that they will not be easily digested by the mainstream historical and archaeological fraternity, as we have already experienced. It will require a complete paradigm shift in how we view our human history. " -- Tellinger Where it was found

But remember -.we're talking almost 200.25 47' 33. Simply Amazing! Did gold play some role in the dense population that once lived here? The site is just about 150 miles from an excellent port where maritime trade could have helped to support such a large population." says Tellinger.

But dating the site was a problem. The main reason for this is that we have been taught that nothing of significance has ever come from southern Africa. but the science of dating patina is just being developed and is still controversial. The breakthrough came quite unexpectedly. As Tellinger describes it: . with as many as 200. this part of the world was filled by hunter gatherers and socalled Bushmen. " -. Carbon-14 dating of such things as burnt wood introduces the possibility that the specimens could be from recent grass fires which are common in the area. which was supposed to have started sometime in the 12th century AD. The heavy patina on the rock walls suggested the structures were extremely old. and for me to realise that we are actually dealing with the oldest structures ever built by humans on Earth."I see myself as a fairly open-minded chap but I will admit that it took me well over a year for the penny to drop. who did not make any major contributions in technology or civilization.000 people living and working together.Tellinger Dating the site: Finding the remains of a large community. That the powerful civilizations all emerged in Sumeria and Egypt and other places. was a major discovery in itself. We are told that until the settlement of the BANTU people from the north.

He determined the solstices and the equinoxes. It had been used by the Blue Swallow foundation to commemorate the opening of the Blue Swallow reserve in 1994. But the mysterious hole in the ground remained a big puzzle. The irony is that it was removed from the most important ancient site found to date and mysteriously returned to the reserve -. east and west. Johan found the anthropomorphic (humanoid shape) stone. but on the west side of the aligned monoliths there was a mysterious hole in the ground -. It was intact and proudly placed with a plaque stuck to it. came riding by. One day."Johan Heine discovered Adam's Calendar in 2003.north. Johan walked over to the monoliths and immediately realised that they were aligned to the cardinal points of Earth -. There were at least 3 monoliths aligned towards the sunrise. After weeks and months of measuring and observations. the local horse trail expert. After an extensive search. while contemplating the reason for the hole. He quickly explained to Johan that there was a strange shaped stone which had been removed from the spot some time ago. Apparently it stood somewhere near the entrance to the nature reserve.for slightly different reasons. Christo. Next to the crash site Johan noticed a very strange arrangement of large stones sticking out of the ground. quite by accident. . Johan concluded that it was perfectly aligned with the rise and fall of the Sun. While rescuing the injured pilot from about 20 metres down the side of the cliff.something was missing. He was on route to find one of his pilots who crashed his plane on the edge of the cliff. south.

The first calculations of the age of the calendar were made based on the rise of Orion.000 years.makomati. . The Earth wobbles on its axis and so the stars and constellations change their angle of presentation in the night sky on a cyclical basis. a constellation known for its three bright stars forming the "belt" of the mythical hunter. By determining when the three stars of Orion's belt were positioned flat (horizontal) against the horizon.The exact location of the calendar is listed on www. we can estimate the time when the three stones in the calendar were in alignment with these conspicuous stars. This rotation. com. called the precession completes a cycle about every 26.

The first rough calculation was at least 25.flat on the horizon -. The most recent and most acurate calculation. exposed to natural erosion.but also on the erosion of dolerite stones found at the site.000 years. suggests an age of at least 160. . done in June 2009.000 years ago. These calculation helped assess the age of the site by calculating the erosion rate of the dolerite. But new and more precise measurements kept increasing the age. His calculation was also based on the rise of Orion and suggested an age of at least 75. Some pieces of the marker stones had been broken off and sat on the ground. When the pieces were put back together about 3 cm of stone had already been worn away. The next calculation was presented by a master archaeoastronomer who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of ridicule by the academic fraternity.000 years. based on the rise of Orion -.

The most modern techniques indicated an age of 80. South Africa is known as the largest gold producing country of the world.C.Who made the metropolis? Why? It would seem that humans have always valued gold.C. is also named "Egoli" which means the city of gold.000 B. The archaeologists and anthropologists who joined in dating the finds believed that mining technology was used in south. a team of international physicists came to South Africa to verify the age of human habitats in Swaziland and Zululand. the same region where the ancient metropolis is found. during the Old Stone Age? Archaeological studies indicate that it indeed was so. The largest gold producing area of the world is Witwatersrand. It is even mentioned in the Bible. for these sites.The name of the first [river] is Pishon.000 to 115. by the Zulu medicine man Credo Vusamazulu Mutwa). and 60. in the 1970s engaged archaeologists to look for such ancient mines.

000 to 200.and learn what was happening on planet Earth. probably in East Africa. hominids. all mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in every living person is derived from this one female individual. Mitochondrial Eve is the female counterpart of Y-chromosomal Adam.000 years ago.000 to 250. or how the change happened. Mitochondrial Eve (mt-mrca) [Right: An artist's rendition] is the name given by researchers to the woman who is defined as the matrilineal most recent common ancestor (MRCA) for all currently living humans. What were humans like 160. [right] The region in Africa where one can find the greatest level of mitochondrial diversity (green) and the region anthropologists postulated the most ancient division in the human population began to occur (light brown). can trace our ancestry back through time to a point where our species evolved from other. in the region of Tanzania and areas to the immediate south and west. but we can trace our genes back to a single female that is known as "Mitochondrial Eve". Scientists speculate that she lived in a population of between perhaps 4000 to 5000 females capable of producing offspring at any given time. homo sapiens. Mitochondrial Eve is believed to have lived between 150. It appears that we are all descendants of this one human female. although they lived at different times. But why would ancient people work so hard to mine gold? You can't eat it. If other females had offspring with the evolutionary changes to their DNA we have no record of their survival. the patrilineal most recent common ancestor. It's too soft to use for tool making.It seems highly probable that the ancient metropolis was established because of its proximity to the largest supply of gold on the planet. . The ancient metropolis in located in this latter (brown) region which also corresponds to the estimated age when the genetic changes suddenly happened. Scientists do not understand why this new type of humansuddenly appeared. Exactly why was gold so important to early homo sapiens? To explore the answer we need to look at the period of history in question -. Mitochondrial Eve would have been roughly contemporary with humans whose fossils have been found in Ethiopia near the Omo River and at Hertho. Passed down from mother to offspring.000 to 95.000 years BCE -.160. more primitive.000 years BP. Mitochondrial Eve lived significantly earlier than the out of Africa migration which might have occurred some 60. It isn't really useful for anything except ornaments and its physical beauty is on a par with other metals like copper or silver.000 years ago? Modern humans.

If you are like me. . comes from an early Babylonian version of about 1700 BC. you'll want to do the research yourself.are where our known history begins. But the Sumerian civilization.but by beings from another planet who needed "slave workers" to help them mine gold on their extra-planetary expedition! I warned that this is difficult to believe.just like Genesis. tells the story of the creation of modern humans -. This next part of the story is difficult to write. The seal image [above] depicts the legend of the "Great Flood" which consumed mankind. It's so shocking that the average person will not want to believe it. What's more. Who made the metropolis? Why? This story. Like Genesis.Could this be a coincidence? Ancient Sumerian history describes the ancient metropolis and its inhabitants! I'll be honest with you. the Sumerian legend. written in cuneiform and earlier scripts so we know a lot about their history and legends. in what is now Iraq. Atrahasis.the Pharoahs and pyramids -. It combines familiar Sumerian motifs of the creation of mankind and the subsequent flood -. but please keep reading.not by a loving God -. then allow some time for the facts to settle in your mind. is much older. The oldest dynasties go back some 3200 years BP. Many Sumerian legends are strikingly similar to Genesis. we have translated many of their history tablets. the Atrahasis. That's a long time ago. We are often made to believe that the Egyptians -. but it certainly dates back to Sumerian times.

For Enki. after thousands of years. seventh and fifteenth of every month. Anu advises Enlil to ascertain who is the ringleader of the rebellion. Nusku. Atrahasis) After Enki instructs them on purification rituals for the first. They decide to go on strike. Then Enki and the womb-goddess take the clay into "the room of fate. The gods dug out the Tigris river bed And then they dug out the Euphrates. the work was apparently too much for them. Atrahasis) After 3. And let man bear the load of the gods! (Dalley 14-15.") The vizier Nusku advises Enlil to summon the other great gods." where The womb-goddesses were assembled. Let the womb-goddess create offspring.600 years of this work. Modern humans (homo sapiens) did not exist yet. "a god who had intelligence" (his name means "ear" or "wisdom") and form mankind from his blood and some clay. officers). burning their tools and surrounding the chief god Enlil's"dwelling" (his temple). Enlil's vizier. She kept reciting an incantation. Between them she put down a mud brick. The worker gods had built the infrastructure as well as toiled in the gold mines and. kill him. gets Enlil out of bed and alerts him to the angry mob outside. especially Anu (sky-god) and Enki (the clever god of the fresh waters)." they decide to sacrifice one of the rebels for the good of all.e. She pinched off fourteen pieces of clay. The mob answers. Since the upper-class gods now see that the work of the lower-class gods "was too hard. (Dalley 16. only primitive hominids lived on Earth. They will take one god. The gods had to dig out the canals Had to clear channels.The story starts out with the "gods" -. the gods slaughter Geshtu-e. Atrahasis). Enlil is scared. and make mankind by mixing the god's flesh and blood with clay: Belit-ili the womb-goddess is present. (His face is described as being "sallow as a tamarisk. the worker class and the ruling class (i. Seven on the left.beings from a planet called Nibiru -. There were two groups of "gods". --(Dalley 9. And set seven pieces on the right. the lifelines of the land.digging ditches and mining for gold as part of an expeditionary team. all the gods troop by and spit on it. When she had finished her incantation. Atrahasis) The creation of man seems to be described as a type of cloning and what we would today consider in vitrofertilization. staying in her presence. After the birth goddess mixes the clay. They send Nusku out to ask the mob of gods who is their leader. made her recite it. "Every single one of us gods has declared war!" (Dalley 12. He [Enki] trod the clay in her presence. the gods finally begin to complain. .

be based on historical events.e. was going to bring it close enough to the orbit of Earth that its gravity would cause the oceans to rise and flood the land. putting an end to the hybrid species -. Zuisudra. Just think about this for a while. Nibiru. is real and that it existed in the same era as the sudden evolution of hominids to homo sapiens.The result was a hybrid or "evolved human" with enhanced intellect who could perform the physical duties of the worker gods and also take care of the needs of all the gods.homo sapiens. one of the "gods" had sympathy for a particular human. . The community in South Africa was called "Abzu" and was the prime location of the mining operation. and warned him to construct a boat to ride out the flood. This in itself would be amazing. This eventually became the basis for the story of Noah in the book of Genesis. We are told. Abzu. in other texts. Since these events appear to coincide with the dates of "Mitochondrial Eve" (i. According to the story." Apparently. According to the same texts. were extraordinary science-fiction. acknowledging life on other planets and human cloning. once the mining expedition ended it was decided that the human population should be allowed to perish in a flood which was predicted by the atronomer of the "gods. 150. Did this really happen? The only other explanation is to imagine that the Sumerian legends.000 BP) and appear to be located in the richest gold mining region on the planet (Abzu). that the expedition came for gold and that great quantities were mined and shipped off the planet. some researchers are thinking that the Sumerian legends may. But we now have evidence that the mining city. the cyclical passage of the home planet of the gods.000 to 250. in fact.
