Before we begin, there is one issue that needs to be addressed – and that is the so called “scientific community” not being able to agree when early human species have gone extinct. So look at this article as opinion and not as fact.
In December 2012 there is supposed to be a “galactic alignment” – where the sun aligns with the center of the universe. Most scientist say its not going to be a big deal. Ok, thats fine. Now lets go back in time 27,000 years and take a look at what was going on.
Around 27,000 years ago, 4 species of “people” roamed the earth – Homo Erectus, Neanderthal, Cro-Magnon and Homo Sapiens. Only one species is still alive today – Homo Sapiens – the modern human race.
Homo Erectus: The first fossils records of Homo Erectus date to around 1.8 – 3 million years ago. According to some sources, some Homo Erectus fossils date to as early as 30,000 years ago.
This means that Homo Erectus was around for at least 1.77 million years? What caused a species that was around so long to suddenly go extinct?
Neanderthal: The first records of Neanderthal date to around 300,000 years ago, and suddenly disappear around 30,000 years ago. This 30,000 year date is disputed. Some scientist think the Neanderthal was around as recent as 10,000 – 15,000 years ago.
What caused a species to disappear after being around for 270,000 years?
Cro-Magnon: The first records for Cro-Magnon show up around 30,000 years ago, and then just disappear.
Homo Sapiens: We’re still here, or else you would not be reading this.
What do Homo Erectus, Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon have in common? The extinction dates for all three species were put at around 27,000 – 30,000 years ago. The same date as the coming galactic alignment in 2012, which only happens every 27,000 years.
Now let back up to 54,000 years ago:
Why 54,000 years ago, because 27,000 + 27,000 = 54,000.
Lets do some math:
110,000 – 10,000 = 100,000.
100,000 / 2 = 50,000 years ago
54,000 years ago is only 4,000 years from being the middle of the last ice age. This means that 2 of these galactic alignments was in the middle of the last ice age.
Genetic Adam lived in Africa around 59,000 years ago. Just a few years from 2 galactic alignments ago.
One of the “Out of Africa theories” says that Homo Sapiens left Africa around 50,000 years ago – which is around the middle of the last ice age and 2 galactic alignments ago.
1 galactic alignment ago – around that same time 2 – 3 species of early humans went extinct. Depending on where you get your information from, 3 species of early humans went extinct – that is “if” the Neanderthal died off around 27,000 – 30,000 years ago, or 10,000 years ago.
2 galactic alignments ago – our planet was in the middle of an ice age, Homo Sapiens were on the move. One of the big questions is “why” did Homo Sapien move out of Africa when the rest of the world was in the middle of an ice age.
