Really interesting read. He used to work for both the Guardian and the Economist when he was a field journalist.

Call me a skeptic, but I would think that if there was some prehistoric advanced civilization, we'd have found fossil evidence of it by now.

Well a lot argue that we have. Ancient egyptians and mayans for some reason reiterate through their inscribings that pyramids were some sort of site handed down to them by a higher being. I think they were just trying to say it was from a previous great global civilization that was almost completely wiped at the beginning of the ice age. I don't think this is a stretch...now the ancient alien crap, yeah that's a stretch

We've obviously found human remains that can date as far back as 30,000 years ago across the globe. As I mentioned, structural evidence has been found and places such as Tiwanaku, Machu Pichu, the Sphinx, and especially Yonaguni. A lot of archaeological findings that we've brushed over without much research are quite interesting. I'm a sucker for alternate-history so this is where i probably sound like a nutjob ;)

And the last ice age melted according to most scholars melted around 10,500 BC many scientists argue caused a polar shift and the melting ice deposits were thus the origin for all of the flood myths.

Just throwing it out there

The Sphinx is real a historical conundrum because most historians don't believe the Egyptians built it.

the best part of this thread is that it was not a scientist that wrote the bolded part in the OP, but a reporter...

the bolded part makes it sounds like scientists think language developed sometime after that 11,000 year old site was built, but spoken language easily predates that site by tens of thousands of years.

as to writing, well...

I don't see why writing would be needed to build what we've seen, but that does not mean to me that the people who built it couldn't possibly have had written communication. Just seems unlikely based on what we have found so far.

According to the documentary "Battlestar Galactica", they had sex with "Homo Sapien Idaltu".
