Anomalous objects
Silent Enigma

Over the past century many artifacts from around the world have been found which defy explanation. These objects are either hidden from view in museums ie left in storage and almost forgotten or just get ignored by mainstream archeology. Most of us will live out our lives never knowing about these anomalous objects. Some of these objects  appear to belong to a time well before known recorded history and these objects indicate a technology used to manufacture them as far  superior to ours today. The history of the world that we are taught in school and universities is only a small chapter of history. I call on the scientific community to investigate these objects and once and for all determine there authenticity. Having just one scientist or archeologist is not enough to bring this matter forward- it must be a joint effort of disciplines. If these objects are found to be extraordinary, it may help us explain many other mysteries of the world.

Many scientists donít believe in man made climate change and several have spoken out against the mainstream and have been ridiculed viscously by their peers and the ignorant media. Scientist know that if they donít follow the established school of thought they will become outcasts and will have difficulty getting funds for their research and their future career prospects will be affected.

Nothing proves this point better than the research done in the 1960ís by Virginia Steen-Mcintyre in Hueyatlaco, located in Puebla, Mexico. Her team of geologists who worked for the U.S. Geological Survey  found remains of human habitation dating between 250,000 to 350,000 years ago.

The geologists involved said four different dating methods independently yielded unusually great ages for the artifacts found near Valsequillo. The dating methods used were (1) uranium series dating, (2) fission track dating, (3) tephra hydration dating, and (4) study of mineral weathering. As might be imagined, the date of about 250,000 years obtained for Hueyatlaco by the team of geologists provoked a great deal of controversy. If accepted, it would have revolutionized not only New World anthropology but the whole picture of human origins. Human beings capable of making the sophisticated tools found at Hueyatlaco are not thought to have come into existence until about 100,000 years ago in Africa. In attempting to get her team's conclusions published, Virginia Steen-McIntyre experienced many social pressures and obstacles.

On March 30, 1981, Steen-McIntyre wrote to Estella Leopold, "The problem as I see it is much bigger than Hueyatlaco. It concerns the manipulation of scientific thought through the suppression of 'Enigmatic Data,' data that challenges the prevailing mode of thinking. Hueyatlaco certainly does that! Not being an anthropologist, I didn't realize the full significance of our dates back in 1973, nor how deeply woven into our thought the current theory of human evolution had become. Our work at Hueyatlaco has been rejected by most archaeologists because it contradicts that theory, period. Their reasoning is circular. H. sapiens sapiens evolved ca. 30,000-50,000 years ago in Eurasia. Therefore any H.s.s. tools 250,000 years old found in Mexico are impossible because H.s.s. evolved ca 30,000. Such thinking makes for self-satisfied archaeologists but lousy science!" Eventually, Quaternary Research (1981) published an article by Virginia Steen-McIntyre, Roald Fryxell, and Harold E. Malde. It upheld an age of 250,000 years for the Hueyatlaco site. Of course, it is always possible to raise objections to archeological dates, and Cynthia Irwin-Williams did so in a letter responding to Steen-McIntyre, Fryxell, and Malde. Her objections were answered point for point in a counter-letter by Malde and Steen-McIntyre. But Irwin-Williams did not relent. The anomalous findings at Hueyatlaco resulted in personal abuse and professional penalties, including withholding of funds and loss of job, facilities, and reputation for Virginia Steen- McIntyre. Her case opens a rare window into the actual social processes of data suppression in paleoanthropology, processes that involve a great deal of conflict and hurt. A final note: we ourselves once tried to secure permission to reproduce photographs of the Hueyatlaco artifacts in a publication. We were informed that permission would be denied if we intended to mention the lunatic fringe date of 250,000 years.
