Skip to comments.Ever War: The Skulls of Chou Kou Tien, Part 1: The Fall
Posted on 06/17/2012 12:38:16 PM PDT by wizkid
On December 2, 1929, deep within a Chinese cavern, four scientists slid into a narrow chasm and discovered the site where the fall of man began nearly half a million years ago, where the original sin was committed. The crime scene that they uncovered was so vile that the artifacts were made to disappear and the implications covered up. While deep in our psyches we still retain a memory of this horror, our elites work to erode the customs developed over eons to keep the terror at bay. This is the fascinating story of these artifacts, the forty skulls of Chou Kou Tien and the disastrous fate that awaits humanity.

What a depressing post! Interesting, but depressing.
Abstract: leftists like the author have a desire to eat brains and believe that eating brains will make them smarter.
Zombies have been seeking brains forever...
One of life's little mysteries.
It's no wonder the stories the prevue of widespread fictional accounts, it's a marvelous story with many hooks to keep everyone guessing. Please ping me when you publish Part Two, I'm all ears.
Thank you for your kind comments.
You can count on my ping when Part II has been completed.
It is nice to know that others share my fascination with this stuff.
The subject has haunted me since running across Colin Wilson’s History of Crime in a dusty old book store ages ago.
The Lost Peking Man Skeletons
A curious episode in the history of Peking Man, and argues that scientists committed a colossal fraud by hiding the existence of ten skeletons.
The initial reports
In the middle of December 1929, some newspapers reported that ten skeletons had been discovered at the Peking Man site of Chou Kou Tien (now Zhoukoudian) in China.
According to the New York Times of Dec. 16, 1929,
“The discovery in a cave near Peking of the fossilized bones of ten men, who possibly lived 1,000,000 years ago, as reported by scientists representing the Rockefeller Foundation and the Geological Survey of China, is held here to excel in interest all previous findings of this kind.
Of paramount importance is the discovery of a perfect skull, now in the possession of Dr. Davidson Black, a Canadian paleontologist, which, it is asserted, bears characteristics showing that even at the beginning of the ice age there existed men with the power of thinking and who, unlike the “ape men,” walked erect.
From the fact that the ten skeletons lay huddled together in the cave, found in a field at Chou Outien [sic], thirty miles from Peking, the scientists hold that they led a community life.” (Anon. 1929a)
Further on, the NYT article refers to “ten skeletons unearthed simultaneously with an unbroken skull”, and says that “Nine of the skeletons were headless”.
The prominent journal Nature (Anon. 1929b) made similar but more modest claims, referring only to “the fossilized fragments of ten more examples of Sinanthropus”, and “remains of ten individuals”.
On December 28th 1929 , a conference was held at the offices of the Geological Survey of China. There were no skeletons, let alone ten of them. What was shown to the audience of scientists and journalists was a partial skull, consisting of most of the braincase but almost none of the face, that had been found at Zhoukoudian on December 2nd by W. C. Pei, the young Chinese scientist in charge of excavation at the site. Even this find was enough to make news around the world.
