Re: Out Of Africa? ‘Theory’…

Quote: “I conceive of nothing, in religion, science, or philosophy, that is more than the proper thing to wear, for a while.” Charles Fort, Wild Talents (1932).

Regardless of what the intellectually insipid are prepared to believe, often repressing their own natural instincts which urge them to resist swallowing snake oil (overcoming the ‘gag reflex’ is a neat trick) and what those with very specific socio-political agendas are spoon feeding the increasingly compliant and credulous masses, the theory remains just that, a theory.

As in all things ‘Scientific’ it is normal process to release ‘theories’ based on what evidence has been revealed through research and that which exists at the current time. What is not, or should not be, acceptable modus operandi is the at times seemingly wild speculation that exists around the various theories of Humanity’s origins. Frankly, I find the OOA Theory even more bizarre than the speculation on Extraterrestrial Alien ‘intervention programs’.

Interestingly, in the Wikipedia (hardly noted for their ‘Right Wing’ Conservatism. In fact FDB quote them all the time) entry on ‘Theory’ there is this rather revealing admission regarding the term:

“Sometimes theories are falsified, meaning that an explicit set of observations contradicts some fundamental assumption of the theory, but more often theories are revised to conform to new observations, by restricting the class of phenomena the theory applies to or changing the assertions made.”

This activity is what is more often referred to, in the common vernacular, as “Moving the goal posts” or even perhaps “Hammering a square peg into a round hole”. Either way, it is done pretty much shamelessly and without apology or explanation.

The ‘Out Of Africa’ Theory has become a Secular Religion defended by foaming fanatics every bit as brainwashed and/or delusional as any Medieval flagellant or Islamic bomb thrower. Why? Simply because it suits an agenda. What agenda and whose? Call it Tikkun Olam if you wish but it does not really matter what label you put on it, after all, our traditional enemies are masters at ‘badge engineering’. The old adage that ‘Everything is Politics’ is now transposable with ‘Everything is Fashion’. In this Matrix of ‘consensus reality’ the thinking Man is compelled to believe nothing of what he hears and half of what he sees!

The way in which today ‘History’ and the ‘Science’ upon which much of it is based is as plastic and uncertain as the Stock Market reminds me of the definition for ‘Freemasons’ taken from ‘The Devil's Dictionary’ by Ambrose Bierce:

Freemasons; noun
“An order with secret rites, grotesque ceremonies and fantastic costumes, which, originating in the reign of Charles II, among working artisans of London, has been joined successively by the dead of past centuries in unbroken retrogression until now it embraces all the generations of man on the hither side of Adam and is drumming up distinguished recruits among the pre-Creational inhabitants of Chaos and Formless Void. The order was founded at different times by Charlemagne, Julius Caesar, Cyrus, Solomon, Zoroaster, Confucious, Thothmes, and Buddha. Its emblems and symbols have been found in the Catacombs of Paris and Rome, on the stones of the Parthenon and the Chinese Great Wall, among the temples of Karnak and Palmyra and in the Egyptian Pyramids -- always by a Freemason.”

Did you get that bit about ‘unbroken retrogression’? Soon we’ll be told WE were here before the Big Bang!!! What? We slid in from a parallel Universe? Ferfucksake!

Similarly, the indigenous inhabitants of Australia were, until a decade or two ago, understood to have been here for between Fifteen to Twenty Thousand Years. That is what I was told at school in the Seventies. This has been gradually pushed back over the years to the point where conjecture has it at Seventy Thousand Years at least and possibly over One Hundred Thousand Years! Where, I humbly ask, does it end? I must add that most of this theory is extensive extrapolation on meagre evidence. The Australian Aborigines are not a culture that has left much at all in the way of verifiable and dateable artefacts. There are no castles, no palaces, no monuments, not even much in the way of permanent residential sites. So how, I ask, do archaeologists accurately date this stuff? And don’t for one moment doubt that political agenda does not dictate ‘findings’ and ‘results’.

Do a bit of reading up on the work of Egyptian Archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass and how he is carefully controlling and editing the flow of information regarding new findings in Egypt in strict accordance with an Egyptian Nationalist political agenda bordering on Arabic Neo-Fascism. In his position as Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, (flashy title, eh?) he has brutally suppressed many findings that don’t fit in with the glorification of modern day (Negroid-tainted) Egyptians as the direct descendants of and inheritors of one of the greatest civilisations of Humanity. He only wants good news and findings which raise embarrassing questions will not be tolerated. He has his own version of the X-Files vault or ‘Hangar 18’ where ‘difficult’ and potentially ‘problematical’ findings are filed and marked ‘never to be released’. Don’t believe it? Check it out.

Bear in mind that as recently as Thirty years ago accepted Scientific 'wisdom' assured us with all the certainty of death and taxes that we were about to enter another Ice Age! I remember reading about it consistently in the ‘papers and seriously worrying about it. Then, about a decade ago that flipped, like a magnetic pole shift, to Global Warming. Now we see the result of years of resistance from saner and more sober scientific minds who were treated like old time Soviet Union political dissidents for daring to point out the Emperor’s new clothes manifested as a clever (?) change of wording in the Global Warming Industry’s language. We are now never again to mention, on pain of death, the term ‘Global Warming’. It is now ‘Climate Change’.

How Orwellian is that? Can everyone say ‘Doublethink’?

Or is it more like Monty Python? Altogether now, Nee!

Quote: “We are now... no longer the Knights Who Say Nee.” “Nee!” “Shh shh. We are now the Knights Who Say Ecky-ecky-ecky-ecky-pikang-zoom-boing-mumble-mumble.”

Lemon Curry anyone?
