Adam’s Calendar

Filed under: Ancient Technology — Tags: — mathilda37 @ 4:44 pm

Someone sent this to me as ‘proof’ of an ancient civilisation in Africa.

Adams calendar.

 

It is claimed to be a Stonehenge like calendar, 75,000 years old. What a load of bollocks that is.

First of all, I’ve seen no evidence this site was ever dated, or that they are anything other than a natural rock formation (although I’ll concede it is possible the stones come from elsewhere, not enough reliable info).

Secondly, they claim it matches the stars- well after 75,000 years no stone circle will match the stars as the damn thing move from their positions over time, and 75k is certainly enough time for a lot of them to have moved away from any ancient intended alignment.

This is meant to show roads and and a city.

Nothing but natural formations there. I guess the guy has to sell his book somehow.

  1. Hi

    Actually it is true. Look at the website http://www.adamscalendar.com/Welcome.html
    Remember the oldest human fossil was also found in South Africa, just outside of Johannesburg at the Sterkfontein Caves. All very intersting.

    • It’s not true Douglas.

      The stars would have moved out of alignment. And the oldest modern human remains are from East Africa. My other blog is an anthropology site, I know this stuff pretty well.

  2. Full agree with you. At first glance, looks like a good supported finding, but when I tried to get more information, the only sources came from the book author’s pages and a few pseudo-scientific websites. No further information about the experts which dated the calendar.

  3. I am meeting with Mr.Tellinger this weekend for an article i’m doing for our local newspaper. Although he is known to be a bit of a maveric, I’ve seen many of the walls(manmade for sure)and villages, but also a tad dubious about the calendar. Will let you know my findings if your interested.

    • Hi. Did you find out anything more about Adam’s Calendar? I’d be very interested to know. I am an anthropology professor from Wits, and have been doing research in Barberton for quite a few years, and have a community development site there in Emjindini Tribal Trust. email: robert.thornton@wits.ac.za
      Please do get in touch.

    • Andre,
      Did you find out anything more from your meeting with

      Tellinger?

      I have just read their book and am quite facinated by his claims, but I think 75000 years is a “bit out”

      Regards

  4. can anyone provide more on this?

  5. Not Sumerian, as Michael Tellinger argues. Sudroid. The same ancient peoples who established Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa. This is what the material evidence suggests.

  7. The fact that the stars are not in the same alignment allows the site to be dated. (any real anthropologist would know this much about astronomy) Scientists figure out the last time the stars were aligned to those positions. That is how a few sites have been initially dated in Western Asia. I am not saying it is real, but it merits more study.

    P.S. I think all old European and other West Asian sites should be retested radiometrically by an international group of scientists to verify the voracity of the many archaeological claims.

    • Well, there’s no evidence at all that the site is that old, and he’s claiming it’s aligned with the stars now. Which means 75k ago they wouldn’t have been aligned with anything as all those starts would have been elsewhere, even if they had been there.
