Cremo Historian of Archeology World Archaeological Congress 5 June 21-26, 2003 Washington, D. Session: The History of Archeology in the Service of Isms Theme: Colonialism, Identity, and Social Responsibility Abstract In 1880, Harvard University's Peabody Museum of Natural History published The Auriferous Gravels of the Sierra Nevada of California, by Dr. According to modern geological reporting, most of the discoveries occurred in Eocene river channels, capped by solid layers of Miocene latite several hundred feet thick. In this book, Whitney documented extensive discoveries by California gold miners of advanced human artifacts and anatomically modern human skeletal in undisturbed Tertiary deposits.I also wish to show how Darwinists today continue to try keep this evidence out of active scientific discussion and out of presentations to the general public (as shown by their reactions to inclusion of such evidence in the NBC television special The Mysterious Origins of Man).Finally, I will discuss the results of my own continuing research into the California gold mine discoveries.There miners dug vertical tunnels that penetrated through layers of volcanic deposits to reach the auriferous gravels. These channels became filled with gravels containing gold.
Or they dug horizontal tunnels that ran below the volcanic deposits. In the late Oligocene, the Eocene river channels were covered with thick deposits of rhyolitic volcanic ash, which now forms a pinkish rock. At Table Mountain in Tuolumne County, the new river channel was filled by a flow of latite (some earlier geologists called it basalt). Geologists obtained potassium argon dates of about 9 million years for the Table Mountain latite.
The day of Brahma is composed of 14 subcycles called manvantara periods, each lasting about 300 million years. Although the Vaishnava cosmology recognizes the existence of beings with apelike bodies and humanlike intelligence, humans of our type existed alongside them.
I would therefore expect that human artifacts and skeletal remains could be found in Tertiary deposits.
But soon gold-mining companies brought more extensive resources into play, sinking shafts into mountainsides, following the gravel deposits wherever they led.
The miners found hundreds of stone artifacts, and, more rarely, human fossils.
The artifacts from these deep mine shafts and tunnels were apparently of great antiquity.
