Do earthquakes explain all those mastodon bones at Snowmass? Not likely, say scientists, although they havenât completely shelved the idea.
And did humans kill a mammoth 50,000 years ago and then cache the meat for later use? Circumstantial evidence of rocks intermixed with bones suggests that was the case. If so, it would rank as one of the major scientific discoveries of the decade, putting people on the North American continent some 36,000 years earlier than what is now generally agreed upon by archaeologists.
That intriguing idea also remains on the shelf, just beyond touch for lack of corroborating evidence.

NOVA: Ice Age Death Trap
I watched that show the other night.
Really good but I’ll bet that, if the marks on the rib bone turn out to be made by stone knives, we’ll never be told.
(Actually, it could have been global climate change!!)
(Fred Flintstone’s fault!!!)
you might even say mammoth!
Heard it was the melting ice shelf that created a dam effect anda huge rush of water right thru the middle of the country like a tsunami
Those animals died in the Noahic Flood, and were buried by the earthquakes and swift rushing flood waters. IMHO.
(Let’s not believe what the Scriptures say. Let’s spin a yarn about how it happened some other way).
Exactly. The controversy over Kennewick man revealed how politics corrupted another branch of science as to render it not credible. Academic elitists have decided the public just can’t handle the truth.
I had an Archaeology professor who noted there were multiple opportunities for the invasion of North America by people from Asia, and noted that earlier ones went back at least 32,000 to 64,000 years.
Clovis was still considered the oldest group, so I guess he was a bit of a heretic (that's an unverified visionary).
It has kept me looking for things that are older than those which are 'supposed' to be here. Glad this was found.
The Missouri River originally flowed north. The Ice sheet in the last major advance blocked that flow, until the water found a way out to the Southeast. The north shore of Lake Sakakawea is roughly the southernmost extent of that ice sheet. There are rattlesnakes on the South side of the Lake/River in Western North Dakota, but not on the north side (where the ice was).
Hunting a mastodon with sharpened sticks takes huge balls. So the only conclusion I can draw i that mastodons tasted good.
Cool! Bump for later viewing. :)
There is no money in truth therefore no grants.
There are very large pyramid structures (bigger than the Great Pyramid) recently found in South America which have been dated to 25,000 BC. Naturally these finds (among hosts of other finds) are discounted as anything which disturbs the academic grant-generating meme is either discounted, discredited, ignored, reburied, or destroyed.
Be glad it was ‘allowed’ to be found.
You are totally in tune with my thoughts.
