Hidden History of the Human Race By Michael Cremo

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. We

 

recount in detail how this evidence has been systematically suppressed, ignored, or

 

forgotten, even though it is qualitatively (and quantitatively) equivalent to the evidence

 

favoring currently accepted views on human origins. When we speak of suppression of

 

evidence, we are not referring to scientific conspirators carrying out a satanic plot to

 

deceive the public. Instead, we are talking about an ongoing social process of knowledge

 

filtration that appears quite innocuous but has a substantial cumulative effect. Certain

 

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 stone

 

tools found in California gold mines. The implements, including spear points and stone

 

mortars and pestles, were found deep in mine shafts, underneath thick, undisturbed layers

 

of lava, in formations ranging from 9 million to over 55 million years old. W. H. Holmes of

 

the Smithsonian Institution, one of the most vocal critics of the California finds, wrote:

 

"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 [that

 

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 not agree

 

with the favored theory, then such facts, even an imposing array of them, must be

 

discarded.

 

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 that

 

screens out unwelcome evidence. This process of knowledge filtration has been going on

 

for well over a century and continues to the present day.

 

In addition to the general process of knowledge filtration, there also appear to be

 

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 northern

 

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 years

 

old. For those adhering to standard views on North American prehistory, such ages were

 

unacceptable. Humans supposedly first entered North America from Siberia about 12,000

 

years ago.

 

Thomas E. Lee complained: "The site's discoverer [Lee] was hounded from his

 

Civil Service position into prolonged unemployment; publication outlets were cut off; the

 

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 the

 

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 of prestige

 

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. It had

 

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 human

 

evolution. We especially examine the status of Australopithecus. Most anthropologists say

 

Australopithecus was a human ancestor with an apelike head, a humanlike body, and a humanlike bipedal stance and gait.
