Toothed Wheel Found in 300-million-year-old Coal
Komsomolskaya Pravda reported that a resident of Vladivostok discovered a metallic-looking rail or rod pressed into a hunk of coal he had obtained to heat his home during the winter. Initial examination of the strange object led researchers to assert it looked "very much like a toothed metal rail, created artificially…like parts [that] are often used in microscopes, various technical and electronic devices" Full story at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/23/300-million-year-old-tooth-gear_n_2527424.html?utm_hp_ref=email_share
Are Nazca Lines A Desert Labyrinth?
Dr Nicholas Saunders of the University of Bristol's Department of Archaeology and Anthropology and Professor Clive Ruggles of the University of Leicester walked 1,500 km of desert in southern Peru, tracing the lines and geometric figures created by the Nasca people between 100 BC and AD 700. Their new conclusions are discussed in Antiquity: antiquity.ac.uk/ant/086/ant0861126.htm
Ancient Russian Fossil Machine
In the remote Kamchatka peninsula University of St. Petersburg archaeologists discovered a strange fossil composed of hundreds of toothed cylinders that appear to be parts of a machine. According to archaeologist Yuri Golubev all the pieces of this machine were dated at 400 million years.

Letters to www.mcremo.com
Hello, Dr. Cremo,
Where exactly in the Vedas does it say that life began 2 billion years ago? Is it not true that Hindu literature says it began 1 billion years ago and that human life began 120 million years ago? That the Earth formed in the 2nd manvatara (about 1 and a half billion years ago), that plants began in the 5th? (Ancient Science at www.world-mysteries.com). And you say that life began 2 billion years ago, but it began 3.8 billion years ago (the 1st bacteria) as any biologist will tell you.
Also, are not the dating methods subject to error because of false assumptions, etc., even with the use of several methods?
Michael Cremo responds:
The Bhagavata Purana (also called the Shrimad
Bhagavatam) relates the history of Dhruva Maharaja, who lived during the
Svayambhuva manvantara, which is this first manvantara. He was living in a city
and went into the forest to meditate. The first manvantara goes from 1.7 - 2.0
billion years ago. There are 14 manvantaras in a kalpa, or day of Brahma. At
the beginning of each kalpa, there is creation of bodies of plants and animals
and human beings.
samasikas tvaya prokto
yas tu svayambhuve 'ntare
The blessed King said to Sukadeva Gosvami: My dear lord, the demigods, demons, human beings, Nagas, beasts and birds were created during the reign of Svayambhuva Manu.
(Bhagavata Purana 6.4.1)
Today's biologists say they can detect the first chemical signs of life at more than 3 billion years ago, but the oldest undisputed fossil evidence for single celled life is about 2 billion years old, in my opinion. In any case, when we get back that far in time, there is some chance that the dating methods are not entirely accurate.
But people can have different opinions about these things.
Dear Mr. Cremo,
Thank you for your fine book, Forbidden Archeology. I was wondering if the sequencing of DNA has changed your view that Homo Sapiens Sapiens has lived alongside other species for tens of millions of years.
I am a retired farmer with no involvement in paleoanthropology. I know little about the subject; however, I was fascinated with the anomalous evidence presented in your book. There is some evidence of evolution since earth’s formation over 4 billion years ago; however, I don’t buy the homo timeline that the majority opinion has ruthlessly defended.
My gut feeling is that it would take hundreds of millions of years for a Ramapithecus to possibly evolve into a modern man, not the relatively short period since the Pliocene-Pleistocene boundary. Any thoughts you might have with respect to DNA sequencing would be most appreciated.

Hello Dr. Cremo,
are photos, and what I have put together as a draft of "my
observations" of such.
[Excerpts from Observations:] The place of the most intriguing finds, I have
painstakingly learned, is a sedimentary layer said, (by the head layer, said
(by the head of the Natural Science Museum), to be 10 million years old in
this particular location. (On being told about these finds, the afore-mentioned
expert will not return calls).
These 'finds' are so extremely delicate until first dried then rinsed in
neutral water, and left to dry. Many did not make it. Once dried, they are of
*Most have appearance of being burned on one side, blackened.
*All have either embedded sand attached, or were made of a sand type
*All came from an eroding ocean shore cliff that is eroding, and giving
up her secrets, willingly. Had these not been collected by myself as 'rocks',
they would have been lost forever.
*All samples were taken in a manner to not further erode, disturb,
not disrespect the cliff containing these items. (When collected as just rocks,
I had no knowledge of the privilege, and, obligation, of this history.)
This history needs to preserved, and with no Historians of such in the United
States, I have been extremely frustrated, but will not give up in having this
History documented. Experts have told that me, and I quote, "how did
ancients - Aztecs, or those from South America get to San Mateo County,
I am sure that your answer is close to as mine was.
There was no "America" then.
