IF LIKE THE FRENCH ARISTOCRAT GOBINEAU, BELIEVE THAT THE “ARYAN” (“WHITE”) RACE DEVELOPED THE SUPERIOR CIVILIZATION AND IS THE “MASTER RACE” AND THAT “THE BLACK VARIETY (RACE) IS THE LOWEST AND LIES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE (EVOLUTIONARY) LADDER – AND OTHERS LATER – THAT THE “ARYAN” (“WHITE”) RACE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE “INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION” AND ALL “MODERN TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES AND PROGRESS OF THE 19TH AND 20TH CENTURIES – DO BE REMINDED THAT ALL HUMANS HAVE THE ORIGINAL AFRICAN GENES IN THEM TO LESSER OR GREATER DEGREES AND THAT ARCHAEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE OF THE EARLIEST LIFE FORMS HAVE BEEN FOUND IN THE FIG TREE CHERT OF SOUTH AFRICA AND THE FIRST MODERN ANATOMICALLY MODERN (LOOKING LIKE OURSELVES TODAY) APPEARED FIRST IN AFRICA BEFORE MIGRATING TO THE “EURASIAN” SUBCONTINENT – (NO GEOGRAPHICAL ENTITY “EUROPE” WAS IN EXISTENCE THEN) 50,000 – 25,000/20,000 YEARS AGO AS THE “AFRICAN ‘AURIGNACIAN” TOOLMAKING “CRO-MAGNON!

History and prehistory:
Professor Joseph Ward Swain, In The Harper History Of Civilization (Harper & Row, Publishers: New York And Evanston), 1958, stated:
“Being “The Story Of Civilization” itself HISTORY is universal in its length, stretching over all the ages from the first appearance of man on our planet to the present moment; it is universal in its breadth covering all the nations and peoples of the earth; and it is universal in its depth, including every form of human activity.
“All these human activities woven together, make up one gigantic story “The History Of Civilization.”
“All civilizations are the creations of men, and they cannot be understood apart from their creators. Our introductory sketch of the earliest civilizations must therefore be preceded by a brief account of “the earliest history of man,” (*Author’s Note: which is “PREHISTORY”) and this in turn presupposes a knowledge of “the history of the earth upon which he lived.
“WE MUST BEGIN WITH A SKETCH OF EARTH HISTORY. (emphasis added)
“HISTORY,’ having been “traditionally” accepted as having its beginning when the occurrence of written records first occurred which is now generally stated to have been about 3000 years ago in “Sumeria,” [Author’s Note: “historically” and “traditionally” (“Eurocentrically” !) referred to as “Mesopotamia”- “Greek meaning :betweeb the two rivers” and including all of the then “Middle East” consisting of Sumeria, and Babylonia, and later “Assyria” ] in the geographical location of the Tigris and Euphrates river valley! … so then where then did the Babylonians and Assyrians (identified as “Semites” come from …it is indicated: “:somewhere from the north” … (the “northeast” ?)… were they part of the “Germanic and Celtic” tribes of northeastern Eurasia (not “Europe”) … prior to 4,000/3,000 B.C. were they the “African migrants who arrived in Eurasia between 50,000 B.C. and 20,000 B.C. (25,000 -20,000 B.C. … who according to archeological evidence were (“African”) Cro-Magnons) …]Thiisis book will present a new historical paradigm that is different from all other now widely accepted and used world history and introductory anthropology textbooks by beginning with a discussion of the prehistorical origin of the universe, the earth, humans, and the races of humankind.
- H. R. Von Koenigswald, The Evolution of Man (The University Of Michigan: The University Of Michigan Press: Ann Arbor), 1962, 1966:
- “Life is a dynamic process. Had our environment remained unchanged from its very inception, we should, of course, have no need to take the time factor into account. In 1654 it was still possible for the archbishop of Ireland to declare the month, day, and year of creation ACCORDING TO CALCULATIONS HE MADE USING THE TIME FACTORS REFERRED TO IN GENESIS I OF THE HEBREW OLD TESTAMENT!
“Scientifically and historically according to the archaeological evidence available, no life existed in the Archean eon, Azoic era, in the history of the planet Earth and humankind.and the story of civilization.
Richard Milner, The Encyclopedia Of Evolution: Humanity’s Search For Its Origins (Henry Holt And Company: New York, 1990), p. 23:
Origin Of The Universe And The Planet Earth:
PREHISTORY began not 6,000 or 4,000 years ago, nor 3,000 years ago, but rather after the Archean eon: 4.6 billion years ago during during the earliest period of Earth’s history.
“The Archean eon comprises 43%of our planet’s history. The Earth and the rest of the solar system are 4.6 billion years old and the first photosynthetic organisms arose earlier than about 3 billion years ago.
Origin Of Life 3.6 Billion Years Ago:
“The Archean continents were devoid of any life which appears to have originated in the seas some 3.6 billion years ago. For most of the Archean, evidence of life consists of [Note: Not in the “popular view of evolution: apes! … but instead] microfossils, geochemistry, and stromatolites (structures identical to those produced today by mattes of blue green algae.
Archeologists reckon the end of the archean at 2.5 billion years ago, when oxygen
first came to dominate the chemistry of the atmosphere. The bacterial life forms of the Archean never became extinct, despite the rise of their oxygen breathing descendants.
The Age of the Earth – Geological Time and the Archean Eon:
Ledyard Stebbins In Darwin To Dna: Molecules To Humanity (W. H. Freeman And Company: San Francisco), 1982 indicated:
The Age Of The Earth:
-“The Earth originated about 4.6 billion years ago, and by about 4 billion years ago its surface had become cool enough to make life possible.
“By 3.8 billion years ago, rivers were eroding mountains and carrying sediment to valleys and flood plains, forming the first sedimentary rocks. These strata were completely devoid of life. [Stebbins 1982: 175]
19th Century And 20th Century Observations:
“During the past century and a half, scientists have acquired many new facts about the age of the earth. With this new knowledge, scientists have progressively increased their estimates of the length of time that has elapsed since life began. [Stebbins 1982: 10]
The Middle of The 19th Century – 1868 – Thomas Huxley:
“The theologian’s estimate of 5,000 to 6,000 years was first challenged by scientists during the middle of the last century. In 1868, Thomas Huxley, one of Darwin’s most vigorous and articulate apostles, delivered to the working men of Norwich an address entitled “On A Piece Of Chalk,” now a classic of popular science. In it he reviewed with painstaking care the recently discovered evidence indicating that the chalk cliffs bordering the English Channel, the white cliffs of Dover, could have been formed only by the accumulation of millions upon millions of tiny shells fashioned by microorganisms living in the ocean. (their modern descendants can be dredged from the bottom of the Atlantic at any point between Ireland and Newfoundland.)
“He realized that these remains of dead microorganisms could accumulate only very slowly, and he suggested that the formation of the deposits that form the thousand foot-high cliffs along the south coast of England would have required at least 12,000 years to be formed, and probably much longer. If so, this suggestion would lead to calculations, which huxley was not willing to make, that might have indicated the earth’s age to be about 1 million years. [Stebbins 1982: 10]
Professor Stebbins then indicated that with the technique of radiometric dating that emerged from a flood of new discoveries about radioactivity and the discovery of such elements as uranium and strontium, and mixtures of potassium and argon decaying at regular, measurable rates, that these discoveries had been standardized to such a degree that: geologists and physicists agree almost unanimously about the results obtained. RADIOMETRIC DATING tells us that the Earth is about 4 billion years old; that organisms having cellular nuclei, chromosomes, and possibly the ability to reproduce sexually evolved between 1.4 and 1 billion years ago; and that primitive jellyfishes, worms, seaweeds, and other many-celled organisms first appeared between 700 and 600 million years ago. ” [Stebbins 1982: 11]
3.5 billion years ago:
The beginning of the African Heritage:
Archaeological evidence indicates that the first living cells and the oldest known fossil cells – 3.5 billion years old representing the beginning of the African heritage in human biological and cultural history – were found in Africa, in the Fig Tree Chert of South Africa.
