Boy are they really gonna be confused when they find one with a lead bullet or a lazer burn!
It's their cover story for Nov. I'm not a subscriber, but here is some articles from them.
These dates still don't go back far enough. Topper and others like it will rewrite everything.
It took one helluva man to run up and kill a mastodon with a rock.
I don’t suppose the University of North Dakota would be allowed to rename its hockey team after these guys?
Oh geez...here’s another group that’s gonna want reparations because of the atrocites brought on by those evil-white-European-criminal-invaders.
They quit having offspring because with the water, went the feed. This can be seen among the deer of today. If any given year is dry and the food supply low, deer will NOT have twins, and in many cases will not have fawns at all. In years when the food supply is plentiful, deer will have twin fawns. This is a well documented fact. A fact that scientists hate to mention when they are talking about extinction because they want to put the blame on man.
Evil man killed all the animals. There is no way a bunch of cave men using either bone points or flint points and using only spears, killed off any species to the point they became extinct. Nor did they kill enough of them to "aid in the extinction".
If men killed all the animals, why was there so much game in North America(not to mention south of the border)when the white men first showed up. Millions of buffalo, while they are fairly large they are nothing compared to Mammoths and Mastodons, so why were they still around? Not to mention, deer, Elk, Moose, Antelope, Bears(grizzly and black bear), wolves etc. Answer: Because primitive man, including Indians, couldn't kill them fast enough to wipe them out, even by running them over cliffs.
Once the herds had dwindled to the size the food and water could support the extinctions stopped.
About the only thing regarding the early intercontental migrations of humans is our current levels of knowledge are woefully short of any “truth” ! Most accounts I’ve read delimit these tribes to “primitive technologies” ! I submit, because most of those artifacts were ephemeral, we can’t make that assumption ! >PS
I have always thought that Clovis being the earliest men in America was rankly silly. There it is in New Mexico. Did they just fly in there on an Airbus the month before? If they came the Bering route surely it took a while. If they came down the coast in boats surely they didn’t hop on a bus and go to New Mexico from Santa Catalina.
Hunted the animals to extinction? But... but... “Native Americans” were peaceful vegetarians, living in calm harmony with nature and all living things. I’m so confused!
Also, the discovery of what appears to be a mastodon hunting blind littered with ancient beer cans and potato chip bags further supports the theory that people were hunting in the area much earlier than previously believed.
My take on the article is better late to the party than never to have gone.

****... that humans were in the area around 13,800 years ago, or 800 years earlier than was believed. ****
Well I wish they would make up their mind! Years ago Nat Geo had on their cover tools that were 20,000 years old found around the Crow River in Canada.
Then a few years later there was a small notice that the tools were really only 2,000 years old, a discrepency of 18,000 years.
