  • The greatest archaeological revelation in the history of humankind?

    There's an interesting article in the Spectator about the astonishing archaeological discoveries over the last few decades in Eastern Turkey, revealing a monument-building culture that flourished as many as 13 thousand years ago. The builders may have had six fingers, and were evidently obsessed with their genitalia. The article's opening line is certainly effective enough at getting the reader's attention:
    "I am staring at about a dozen, stiff, eight-foot high, orange-red penises ... "

    Fascinating stuff Chris. Something that important and yet I’d never heard of it. I might have to invest in a book on the subject.

      Myth or otherwise, this detail is particularly interesting. There are petroglyphs in the southwestern U.S.A. (Chaco Canyon) that show figures with six fingers and/or six toes.

      These six-fingered figures also turn up in South America. The Mayans believed people with six-fingers had supernatural powers.

          I must say that - while the article coyly talks about their hands being positioned to protect their genitalia - it doesn't look to me as though that's what they are doing with their hands.

          It's interesting that these amazing remains were lurking so near to the surface, and in one case the sculptures had already been excavated and incorporated in the wall of a farmyard!

            Be careful, there's a lot of video's posted by fringe groups who want to claim advanced technologies, aliens, and such nonsense.

                The Daily Grail has an article commenting on this feature of the discoveries in Turkey. It mentions Chaco Canyon and the Mayans, but then it goes off into a discussion of a possible link to the Biblical nephilim, which seems to place a lot of reliance on a single reference to a six-fingered (and -toed) Philistine giant. For those who are interested, there's also a link to a video on the subject that I haven't watched, by someone describing himself as "a goodwill ambassador from the lunatic fringe":

                Personally I've always thought that the prevalence of the number 12 in ancient counting systems would fit in better with 6 digits than with 5. Though it may just be a result of the year having roughly 360 days and 12 being divisible by both 2 and 3 ...
