Road Archaeological site in western Pennsylvania may hold the key to knowing when humans first came to North America: "As a young archaeologist, Jim Adovasio found radiocarbon evidence that humans had visited the Meadowcroft site 16,000 years ago. To archaeologists it was a stunning discovery that contradicted the so-called Clovis first theory, which dated the first settlement in the Americas to New Mexico about 13,000 years ago."

    Native Americans have been trying to prevent archeology from uncovering who came here first for decades, so this latest findings will become a political test for the Obama admin. If you think being anti-science is a purely right-wing phenom, then look into how the Interior Dept. suppresses anthropological research.

    I’m an archaeologist, have been one for 27 years. The Interior Dept. does not suppress anthropological research in any manner. Archaeological excavations routinely take place in lands controlled by the Interior Department including National Park Service, wilderness areas, and Bureau of Land Management lands. I conducted an archaeological field school within a National Park this last spring.

    Regarding the Meadowcroft Rockshelter site, this had been controversial for decades. It will likely continue to be so.

    they didn’t actually turn the carnivorous fish into vegetarians

    they came up with a plant based substitute for those fish in a aquaculture environment (not free swimming in the ocean) that they like and eat

    BUT if they ever got out of their aquaculture enclosures and free into the ocean they would eat meat

    JHT: I guess you never got around to reading this:

    All digging on sites deemed culturally or politically significant is strictly controlled and often can only be done by academics approved of by NA tribes, w/ the risk that the science is compromised by politics. Even if the remains and artifacts cannot be established on review to belong to a particular tribe, claims can still be made on behalf of tribes to suppress the digging and study of such sites. It is true that some of this is the result of pressure from the United Nations, but still.

    I remember watching Steve and Eydie on the Ed Sullivan show when I was but a wee thing. This was the beginning of my love for great American standards. They were somehow the only act of this type that I didn’t roll my eyes at—I had a mini-crush on him and wanted to pinch her nice round cheeks (no, not those cheeks). Ah, sweet youth…

  6. tinkerbelle says

    By the way, nasty as the comment here on Lea Michele is, I sort of have to agree with the proposition.

    (Aside) though she WOULD be great in Funny Girl, as it is her own deeply personal life story—the insufferable playing the insufferable playing the…

    STOP and Frisk is rescinded?

    In other news, crime in those cities will skyrocket in the name political correctness.

    People will get murdered, raped, assaulted and robbed at MUCH higher rates. But yay! We’re PC!!!!!!!

    I lived in Orlando and sinkholes are very common there. The water table (not very deep) has had all the potable water dragged from it (thus creating sinkholes). The whole bloody State could disappear (taking their weir alien overlord/Governor) with it.

  9. Audi-owner says

    @ Samiam:

    There’s nothing PC about protecting people’s right under the constitution you titmouse!

    Try picking up a law/history book and do alittle research before you start spouting off your obvious racism. C**T!

  10. Moz's says

    @ anon, rick, samiam, etc (singular person with multiple names)

    if your hoping for a mormon america pre= american indians with pensylvania or europeans coming to the americas pre-clovis culture then you need to put on another pair of magic underware

    there is a far far older by 200,000 years site located in southern California called Calico Early Man site with prehistoric tools that supports the well known and factual non mormon view of history with the ancestors of native americans coming across the bering straight and spreading downward and outward in the americas

    That site deserves more funding and more archeologists to study the site and possibly showing the ancestors of native americans being here far longer than you wish and far smarter than you think

    JHT – Are you saying that certain American Indian groups HAVEN”T tried to block scientific analysis of human remains? Are you saying that the Umatilla HAVEN”T tried to use the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act to keep Kennewick Man from being examined further, despite there being no evidence whatsoever that he is related to any modern tribe?

    Come on. You know as well as we do that some Indians and Indian-wannabes in academia are on a crusade to shout down any challenge to the “indigenous” claim.

  12. Hagatha says

    David R –

    You are what is commonly known as ignorant. Sea levels aren’t rising in Orlando and sink holes don’t come from sea level rise. Actually, sea level rise, if anything would stop sink holes because of back pressure on the aquifer.

    Orlando is a giant interior lake with a ridge of limestone protecting it from the Atlantic miles to the east. It’s 75 miles from the Gulf. Neither the Atlantic nor the Gulf is experiencing significant variation in water levels.
