"Before the Lake Was Champlain" trailer (Red Paint People) & Robert Schoch Video Links
"Before the Lake Was Champlain"trailer & Robert Schoch Videos
Although Robert Schoch's research does not particularly pertain to NorthEastern American Stone-Works, in a direct sense, these videos with Dr. Schoch are enticing. A trained geoligist, Robert Schoch is most known for confirming that the Sphinx in Egypt (at least the base of the statue) had been heavily weathered by water, indicating the Sphinx is much older than mainstream Egyptologists date the structure. Of course this was controversial. John Anthony West points to a stone tablet in a museum in Egypt, which references the existence of the Sphinx at a date before the person who today is credited with the building of the structure was even born!
The point of the Robert Schoch videos is, I want my readers to open their minds. We cannot simply comply with whatever it is that someone tells us is true, we must do our own research and come to our own understandings and conclusions- to think we know everything about our history and human experience is absurd on the face of it.
For instance, in the NorthEast America's, what is today northeast United States (New England basically) and Canada (maritime provinces such as Labrador), were the Red Paint people, aka, the Maritime Archaic, whose culture flourished between 7,000 BC to 1,000 CE, and this is according to scholars and academics. Think about it- this means that there was a sophisticated maritime culture that flourished in this region as far back as 9,000 years ago, after the end of the last ice age/ cataclysm. These people were not primitive- they made harpoons to catch swordfish miles off the coast into the Atlantic Ocean. In the documentary "Before the Lake Was Champlain" we learn that there has been a "smoking gun" fluted point arrowhead found in New York state from thousands of years ago that could only have been sourced from Iceland. The video trailer for this on YouTube is here:
These Native American societies could trade and sail from Florida to the NorthEast, where there was a trade network from New York, New Jersey, up through New England and into Labrador. Now apparantly, scholars are finding out that this trade network extended into Iceland, at least for production materials (probably from Labrador/ Newfoundland into Iceland)- and we do know that past 5,000 years ago the Atlantic was more shallow than it is today, making travel easier. And, Europe is only "a stone throw away" from Iceland to people with such sophisticated maritime trade networks, perhaps there was a trade network as far away as Europe in ancient times as well.
These last 2 videos I will post here are interviews that feature geoligist Robert Schoch. He will talk about ancient Egypt, Gunung Padang in Indonesia, and Gobekli Tepe in Turkey (by the Syrean border.) Gobekli Tepe has been dated by scholars and archaeologists to be about 11,000/12,000 years old and is VERY sophisticated. Here are the Robert Schoch links:
The point of this post is that throughout the world, there was ancient high civilization, which perhaps got plunged back into the Stone Age due to the Ice Age (a cataclysm.) Evidence of man's early sophistication and knowledge can be seen if one accepts the alternative dating of the Sphinx in Egypt (which makes more sense to me), learns about sites such as Gunung Padang in Indonesia and Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, or realizes that in the American NorthEast there existed as early as 9,000 years ago a sophisticated Maritime culture and trade network.
