n Part I of The Hidden History of the Human Race, we look closely at the vast
amount of controversial evidence that contradicts current ideas about human evolution.

forgotten, even though it is qualitatively (and quantitatively) equivalent to the
favoring currently accepted views on human origins. When we speak of suppression

categories of evidence simply disappear from view, in our opinion unjustifiably.
This pattern of data suppression has been going on for a long time. In 1880, J. D.
Whitney, the state geologist of California, published a lengthy review of advanced
tools found in California gold mines. The implements, including spear points and
mortars and pestles, were found deep in mine shafts, underneath thick, undisturbed
of lava, in formations ranging from 9 million to over 55 million years old. W. H.

"Perhaps if Professor Whitney had fully appreciated the story of human evolution
as it is
understood today, he would have hesitated to announce the conclusions formulated
humans existed in very ancient times in North America], notwithstanding the imposing
array of testimony with which he was confronted." In other words, if the facts do
with the favored theory, then such facts, even an imposing array of them, must be
This supports the primary point we are trying to make in The Hidden History of the
Human Race, namely, that there exists in the scientific community a knowledge filter
screens out unwelcome evidence. This process of knowledge filtration has been going
for well over a century and continues to the present day.
In addition to the general process of knowledge filtration, there also appear to
cases of more direct suppression.
In the early 1950s, Thomas E. Lee of the National Museum of Canada found
advanced stone tools in glacial deposits at Sheguiandah, on Manitoulin Island in
Lake Huron. Geologist John Sanford of Wayne State University argued that the oldest
Sheguiandah tools were at least 65,000 years old and might be as much as 125,000
old. For those adhering to standard views on North American prehistory, such ages
unacceptable. Humans supposedly first entered North America from Siberia about 12,000
Thomas E. Lee complained: "The site's discoverer [Lee] was hounded from his
Civil Service position into prolonged unemployment; publication outlets were cut
evidence was misrepresented by several prominent authors . . .; the tons of artifacts
vanished into storage bins of the National Museum of Canada; for refusing to fire
discoverer, the Director of the National Museum, who had proposed having a monograph
on the site published, was himself fired and driven into exile; official positions
and power were exercised in an effort to gain control over just six Sheguiandah specimens
that had not gone under cover; and the site has been turned into a tourist resort.

Sheguiandah would have forced embarrassing admissions that the Brahmins did not know
everything. It would have forced the rewriting of almost every book in the business.
to be killed. It was killed."
In Part II of The Hidden History of the Human Race, we survey the body of
accepted evidence that is generally used to support the now-dominant ideas about
evolution. We especially examine the status of Australopithecus. Most anthropologists
Australopithecus was a human ancestor with an apelike head, a humanlike body, and
a humanlike bipedal stance and gait.
