Egypt opens first Museum of fossils of the Middle East

In the Egyptian desert valley of Wadi al-Khitaan, about 150 km southwest of Cairo, founded the first Museum of Middle East, dedicated to the ancient fossils. Here you can visually explore the structure of ancient whale, extinct many thousands of years ago. The Fossil Museum was built by a grant from Italy of 2 billion euros. The main exhibit of the Museum — the skeleton of a whale with a length of 20 m and an age of 37 million years. The exhibit shows how modern whales evolved from land mammals. In the Legendary Valley of the Whales were found many prehistoric tools used by early people, as well as various remains of whales, confirming the evolutionary transition of whales from early amphibians to aquatic creatures.

But as the fossils of whales occurred in the middle of the hottest desert? This valley was submerged under water about 40 — 50 million years ago. She was covered with the waters of the Tethys sea, reaching the southern parts of the Mediterranean current. Wadi al-Khitaan. or Valley of the Whales contains valuable collection of fossils of ancient whales, archaeoceti. These fossils explain one of the greatest mysteries of the development of whales: transformation of a whale in an ocean mammal from a previous life as a land animal. Continue reading

Scientists and archeology tell us emphatically that they know all about our origin and history. In truth, it is not so. Every year it opens new facts that expand incredibly familiar, cozy, but very narrow limits of the modern world.

Richard Thompson . American scholar, author of many articles on mathematics, Geology and physics, began to collect all the discarded science data concerning the prehistoric past of mankind, he was a member of the spiritual Institute’s Bhakti-Vedanta and adhered to those beliefs at the history that were described in ancient Indian Vedic treatises . namely that humanity existed for a very, very long time.

In collaboration with writer Michael Cremo, he was the impressive one that explained and analyzed this data, most of which are ignored or not recognized by modern science.

After nine years of work the book was published in 1993 under the title ” Forbidden archaeology “. It was one of the most amazing books of the decade. And, admittedly, remarkable for the restraint and moderation of his judgment. As the authors found, among the findings of geologists, archaeologists and paleontologists there is evidence that humans in their modern form have lived many millions – or decadelong years ago in Europe, Continue reading
