Is it scientific to use the preconceived notion that ancient structures found at a location must have been made by the ancestors of the people/culture of that location today, and therefore to automatically denounce anyone questioning it, (whether they posit ancient alien builders, or builders belonging to some other ancient global race/civilization different from the narrative of anthropology we've been taught for decades), as practicing pseudoscience, with racist motivations? Most alternative theories I've seen generally don't have a racist narrative. If anything, they tend to hypothesize a common global founding civilization, or if they invoked aliens, they applied it to sites all over the world, so there's nothing racist in there either.
Are such charges not a threat to academic open-mindedness? Why do we assume that there could NOT possibly have been any cover-up of archeological discoveries, and that human history is precisely as taught in history classes - despite reports of many artifacts inconsistent with the official story having been taken by the Smithsonian and the like, and disappeared subsequently or destroyed?
Are leftist scientists so easily scared to turn back from any line of valid inquiry, as soon as someone puts up a signpost of "racism", or "conspiracy theory", on that path?
Here're a few interesting things to ponder - just the tip of the iceberg of course:
Giant underground rock structure in Balkaria, Russia, 2nd video at this link:
Or compare the largest megaliths found in Kemerovo, Russia vs. Baalbek, Lebanon:
Pyramids in China:
The article Phil posted accused the two German "pseudoscientists" of "defacing" a cartouche of Khufu. In reality, all that was taken was some milligrams of paint sample, and not from the cartouche itself (rather, from some other ancient graffiti nearby in the chamber made of the same paint). The quantity was too small for radiocarbon dating
(though the German lab seemed to have announced this result after the controversy was already all over the news, so who knows if they were under pressure?), but enough to establish the presence of iron
, a discovery previously not made by mainstream study.
