My Love of Real Science and the Adventure of Discovery!

It’s certainly not that I’m against education. Quite the contrary, I believe an education never stops. However, since I have continued my own education well into my adulthood, there are some glaring issues that emerge regarding traditional education.

About a decade ago, I read Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race, a very meticulously written book. In short it is a catalog of anthropological and archeological artifacts that don’t fit nicely into the authentic endorsement of historians. The book demonstrates that relics that don’t fit in the scheme of things are routinely ignored. At first that sounds conspiratorial, but my experience says this is quite possible. Education institutions are routinely provided with facts that they ignore. Namely funding issues, where the unions insulate their membership from the evolution that is occurring in the outside world.

The new way of learning is quickly turning to computers; Rosetta Stone Software for foreign language comes to mind. And if the free market was opened up, and unions didn’t resist the change, similar programs would emerge for mathematics, reading, history, literature, just about every academic endeavor. The role of the teacher is changing, yet they are being paid more highly than ever, in a time that education is on the precipice of change, for the better. Do we still need a teacher in the front of the room teaching like an authority figure? But because of the protectionism that goes on, nobody can even ask the question.

And the same thing happens to relics. When evidence is presented that doesn’t fit the endorsed university theories, there is a lot of resistance, because that puts the credibility of the university at risk who published the original theories. It shouldn’t, but in the world of big business education, change threatens the income stream. So the result is that education is stagnate, and not constantly evolving as quickly as our technology allows.

Below, I’ll let Micheal Cremo explain for himself.

Because of this resistance from authentic education, emerging sciences, such as cryptozoology, and paranormal research is being ignored. Those sciences are at a phase similar to where archeology was at the turn of the century. Universities and their published results were what gave legitimacy to archeology and anthropology in the first place. And because universities are slow to accept new and larger ideas, they are missing the boat. The History Channel, and Travel Channel, and these kinds of cable entertainment are doing actual scientific investigation that will soon be considered legitimate. A show like Ghost Hunters is doing what universities should be doing, but they aren’t because at some point in the past, so-called legitimate scientists with university backing proclaimed paranormal research as hokey.

Yet all across the country, there are thousands of paranormal reports each year, and this phenomenon has a direct correlation to our own history.

For instance, how can you study the motives of North American Indians without investigating the source of their beliefs where they routinely reported visits from the Gods, and had a strong belief that the rulers of the spirit world dwelled in animals?

A few years ago I went to the Mothman Festival in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. In case you don’t know the story, in 1967, to 1968, Point Pleasant was ravaged with UFO reports, strange government agents, and a creature called by the press, a Mothman. The Mothman is a 6 foot tall creature that flies around with red eyes terrifying people, and supposedly shows up before major disasters.

I don’t want to get into all that here, but I couldn’t help but compare the stories of the Mothman in Point Pleasant to the civilization of Cahokia just outside of St. Louis.

Cahokia was an ancient city of Native American habitation around 1200 AD and contained at least 20,000 residents. It wasn’t discovered until developers built a neighborhood over it in East St. Louis. Developers thought the ancient North American city was just a bunch of hills. As it turned out, Monks Mound at Cahokia is the third largest pyramid in the world by volume.

At this site they worshipped a god called “Birdman.” Its description was almost exactly like that of the Mothman, which was just up the river about 400 miles in Point Pleasant some 700 years later. This in itself is a mystery. And while at this archeological site, you can’t help but think of the world without buildings. You can see St. Louis from the top of Monks Mound. The primary highway runs right by it, yet most of America doesn’t know much about Cahokia because it’s not taught in school. It doesn’t fit nicely into the scheme of our educated belief system.

But the evidence is right in front of all of us. And I’m the type of person that will try and connect the dots even further. I’d be inclined to ask why such a city was built at that particular location in the first place. I mean there are lots of locations along the Mississippi River.

An interesting aspect of St. Louis is that it is built on a series of caves. Caves used to be very important to Native American cultures. Most agriculturally based cultures, and especially hunting and gathering cultures have ceremonies for the youth that involve going into caves and letting the spirits guide them to some sort of revelation.

One of the most haunted spots in St Louis is the Lemp Mansion, which was a family of early beer brewers that had a tendency to commit suicide. The Lemp Mansion had access to these caves where a fantastic pool was build down in the cave system, under the mansion. It is hard for me to not connect some of these mysteries that are hidden to us by the busy contemporary existence that hurries itself on the surface of things. I can’t help but think that the caves of St. Louis were important aspects to life in the city of Cahokia, and that the same god that residents of that city worshipped is possibly the same creature that hunted Point Pleasant, West Virginia. And the same “spirits” that resided in the caves, that ancient Cahokian’s sought out in their rituals were the same ones that haunted the residents of the Lemp Mansion and inspired them to decrypted lives of misery and suicide. It’s just a thought, you never know.

However, modern science doesn’t have anyway to deal with all that. But that doesn’t mean they don’t exist or aren’t connected in some way.

In the end, it all comes back to money. Money is the god of modern institutions. And because they are always primarily concerned about how they will get it, or how they will preserve their union endeavors, they will overlook obvious mysteries that are all around them, and actually take steps to suppress the information to protect their budgets for fear of explaining how scientific theories of the past are suddenly wrong.

Basically, we are changing as a human civilization. And we’re changing faster than orthodox systems can keep up with. And that makes just about everything they are protecting irrelevant.

We know now that there are over 10 known dimensions. Quantum physicists can even name them to some extent, even if we can’t yet understand how to relate to something that is not part of our 4 dimensional realities. Much like radio waves, these other dimensions exist even if we don’t have a device that can detect them. There are many such revelations that are coming at us at a furious pace. And yet orthodox education and politics is always in the way of understanding.

So when I speak out about institutionalism, it’s for reasons such as those mentioned above. I look at people who proclaim the above as “hokey,” “crazy,” or even “silly,” as being a big part of the problem. They are the same fools that proclaimed the world was flat, or that Hell was under the earth because they were aware that volcano’s spewed lava. Science is expanding and institutions cleaving to the old ways will soon be as relevant as a dinosaur fossil in a museum and we’ll laugh at how old and archaic we used to learn information truly was.

When it came to Forbidden Archeology, the evidence of suppression was so obvious it started me thinking of how much of that suppression actually goes on. And it is clear that there are many scientific factors that are not yet discovered, and not part of our human existence by understanding. They may be felt, or suspected, but not yet proven. So to cleave to the old ways is to cleave to what is false.
