This is a fantastic find!
Scientists uncover skeletons thought to be as old as 10,000 years, when monsoon rains created a 'green Sahara.'
By Thomas H. Maugh II, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
August 15, 2008

The tiny skeletal hand jutted from the sand as if beckoning the living to the long dead.

For thousands of years, it had lain unheeded in the most desolate section of the Sahara, surrounded by the bones of hippos, giraffes and other creatures typically found in the jungle.
But, I'm sure that it is merely more solid evidence of the Big, Fat Flood drownding those folks some 4,000 years ago -- we all know how unreliable that radiocarbon garbage is. Why, given the time line, it might even be the real remains of the Garden of Eden! The dead lady with her children could even be Eve after the Fall! The evidence points that way because nearby are found dinosaurs!

I shall again begin to monitor Aig & ICR to get the real lowdown on this story, praise be. I'm sure it will be as amazing as the find itself.

But I thought all those Edenites were giants...

Edit: Yep, 15' tall they were, though I imagine Eve didnt top 14' 8"

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini

Ahhhh, good ol' John Adolfi who's SFN name is Bibleland, same as his site. Haven't seen him around here for a while. Here is the last thread he started at SFN. A quick look at his site reveals that he is still unencumbered by evidence...

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?
