118,000 B.C. - Carbon 14 - "According to popular science, the age of fossils of once-living creatures can be determined by radio carbon dating, often abbreviated as carbon dating. When plants take up carbon dioxide from the air, the carbon they 'inhale' includes a radioactive form of carbon, carbon-14, as well as the normal, non-radioactive carbon-12. Carbon-14's half life is precisely known: 5,730 years. By comparing the amount of carbon-12 in a fossil to the remaining amount of carbon-14, the age of the fossil can be determined. Animal fossils [including human] can be dated this way because the animals eat plant matter. This technique only works to an age of about 120,000 years, because beyond that time so little carbon-14 remains that it is impossible to measure it."

113,000 B.C. - North American Ice Age - "In North America the last Ice Age is called the Wisconsin Glaciation [named for rock deposits studied in the state of Wisconsin] and its early phase has been dated by geologists to 115,000 years ago. There were various advances and retreats of the ice-cap after that, with the fastest rate of accumulation taking place between 60,000 years ago and 17,000 years ago - a process culminating in the Tazewell Advance, which saw the glaciation reach its maximum extent around 15,000 B.C. By 13,000 B.C., however, millions of square miles of ice had melted, for reasons that have never properly been explained, and by 8,000 B.C. the Wisconsin had withdrawn completely. The Ice Age was a global phenomenon, affecting both the northern and the southern hemispheres; similar climatic and geological conditions therefore prevailed in many other parts of the world as well [notably in eastern Asia, Australia, new Zealand, and South America]." [based on, Popular Gologic Theory]

* Commentary: "The geological Glacial Period is one of those bizarre, fantastic, mythical theories that has taken strong root in the minds of our present-day scientists. The Glacial Period is history repeating itself. Such scientific misconceptions have pervaded the scientific world all through history and even back beyond historical times, as is shown by the symbolical Tower of Babel; and when there was Atlas disturbing the scientific fraternity until they clubbed together and unceremoniously buried him in the Northwest corner of Africa. The Glacial Period is really modern and up-to-date, for it boasts of having a family of little glaciations, so that there will be some support for it in its old age. Agassiz and his assistants, who framed the Glacial Period Theory and surrounded it with such a corrollary of impossibilities, never studied the origin and workings of forces or natural laws, otherwise they would never have foisted such a raw scientific proposition on an unsuspecting public." [Col. James Churchward, Cosmic Forces of Mu, Volume Two, pp.114-115]

* Commentary: "To form an ice cap around the Northern parts of the Northern Hemisphere down to the 40th Parallel, of a thickness of 20,000 feet, would require more water than now exists in the Artic Ocean, North Atlantic and North Pacific Oceans. Where did the water come from? and where has it gone to since? The water which formed the Northern Ice Cap could not have come from the the South, because the South Pole was imitating her northern sister by dressing herself also up in an equally imposing ice cap. Between the two, there was more water used in forming these two lumps of ice than now exists on the face of the earth!" [Col. James Churchward, Cosmic Forces of Mu, Volume Two, p.125]

100,000 B.C. - Afro-Arabian Expansion - "The 'Weak Garden of Eden' model for the origin and dispersal of modern humans posits a spread around 100,000 years ago followed by population bottlenecks. Then around 50,000 years ago a dramatic growth occurred in genetically isolated, small population. In a 1998 article Stanley Ambrose proposed an alternative hypothesis, a volcanic winter scenario, to explain recent human differenciation. The bottleneck was caused by a volcanic winter resulting from the super-eruption of Toba in Sumatra. If Ambrose's hypothesis is correct modern human races differentiated abruptly through founder effect, genetic drift and adaptation to local environments around 70,000 years ago. Ambrose points out that the Out of Africa dispersal date of around 100,000 years ago fits the generally warm, humid last interglacial period, 130 - 74,000 years ago. An impressive body of paleontological evidence shows an Afro-Arabian biotic community expanded northward during this period. Several such multi-species dispersals out of Africa have occurred during previous interglacial phases. He considers the variants of the Replacement model to be more accurate and realistic than the Multiregional models."

100,000 B.C. - �Hominid Fossils / Australasia - "The hominid fossils from Australasia are argued to show a continuous anatomic sequence, with the earliest Australians displaying features seen in Indonesia 100,000 years ago. Similar evidence is seen in northern Asia. One million years old Chinese fossils differ from Javan fossils in ways that parallel the differences between north Asians and Australians today. Morphological continuity is also evidenced by prominently shoveled maxdlary incisors occurring in high frequency in living east Asians and in all the earlier Asian fossils. They point out the fact that the Neandertals and modern humans in the Near East shared an identical culture. They also argue that the Neandertals were not fully replaced. The more recent DNA isolation from Neandertal fossils counters this belief."

100,000 B.C. - Hominids - "The fossil record shows that about 100,000 years ago, several species of hominids populated Earth. Homo sapiens could be found in Africa and the Middle East; Homo erectus, as typified by Java Man and Peking Man, occupied Southeast Asia and China; and Neanderthals roamed across Europe."

90,000� B.C. - Pottery - "Potassium-argon dating and thermoluminescence can be used to date pieces of pottery back to about this time."

80,000 B.C. - Expansion / Homo sapiens - "After millions of years of sluggish evolution a major population expansion of early modern Homo sapiens occurs from 80,000 to 30,000 years ago. A scenario consistent with ecological and genetic evidence indicates spread to separate regions from an initial restricted area about 100,000 years ago followed by dramatic population growth, especially after 50,000 B. P." [link number 3]

74,000 B.C. - Volcanic Eruption / Sumatra - "According to one report, a major volcanic eruption occurred in Sumatra at this time."

73,000 B.C. - Fashioned Ornaments - "WASHINGTON - About 75,000 years ago, in a Stone Age cave overlooking the ocean, someone collected shells and bored holes in them, producing the oldest known evidence that humans had fashioned an ornament. Discovery of the set of beads pushes back by about 30,000 years the first indications of the ability to make and use such symbolic materials.... The previously oldest known human ornaments are perforated teeth and eggshell beads from Bulgaria and Turkey, dated 41,000 to 43,000 years old, and 40,000-year-old ostrich-shell beads from Kenya." [By Randolph E. Schmid, The Associated Press, 04/16/04]

73,000 B.C. - Human Art / Australia - "A remarkable find in the Northern Territory, Australia, has opened a fierce debate on the prehistory of humans. The date of the find, if correct, dramatically pushes back the date at which people began to create art and language, and triples the date of occupation of Australia. It is, however, strongly contended. Enormous sculpted boulders, described by Australian scientists Richard Fullagar and Paul Tacon as similar in concept to Stonehenge, and thousands of detailed circular engravings have been dated by them at around 75,000 years old, with stone tools dating back to 176,000 years. While excavating in sediments below the rock art, the scientists recovered ochre dating back between 116,000 and 176,000 years. If Aboriginals really have been in Australia for over 100,000 years it enormously changes the traditional view of pre-history in several ways."

70,000 B.C. - Historical Records - "Most of the ancient nations kept in their temples imperishable records - writings on either stone or burnt clay tablets like bricks. Some of the oldest known are in Tibet and some were written, according to the astrological dates written on them, 70,000 years ago. There are hundreds in India dating back 35,000 years and some are even older but without a date. In the Himalayan monastaries, writings of 70,000 years ago are to be seen. Some of these date man back 200,000 years or 270,000 years. The dates are given by the positions of stars, one to the other." [Col. James Churchward, The Children of Mu]

70,000 B.C. - Mu - "All who left the motherland [Mu] in any direction were called Mayas. Colonization must have started at least 70,000 years before Mu sank [about 10,000 B.C.], for there are Naacal writings in the Orient stating that the Holy Brothers carried the religion and the sciences of the Motherland to the colonies 'over 70,000 years ago." [Col. James Churchward, The Children of Mu]

70,000 B.C. - Uighur Empire �- "The Uighur Empire was possibly the first, and unquestionably the largest, most important, and most powerful of all the colonial empires belonging to Mu. Colonization commenced just north of Burma more than 70,000 years ago." [Col. James Churchward, The Children of Mu]

70,000 B.C. - Human Habitation / Greece - "The country of Greece has been inhabited since 70,000 B.C." [The History Channel, 2004]

Helios:
69,000 B.C. - Volcanic Winter - "A new hypothesis about recent human evolution suggests that humans came close to extinction because of a 'volcanic winter' that occured 71,000 years ago. Reportedly, the 'volcanic winter' [subsequent to the eruption of Mount Toba in Sumatra] lasted about six years and was followed by 1,000 years of the coldest Ice Age on record."

68,000 B.C. - European Ice Age - "Known technically as the Wurm Glaciation, this European Ice Age started about 70,000 years ago, a little later than its American counterpart [at 115,000 yrs. ago], but attained its maximum extent at the same time [17,000 years ago], and then experienced the same rapid withdrawl [15,000 - 13,000 B.C.], and shared the same terminal date [8,000 B.C.]." [based on, Popular Geologic Theory]

68,000 B.C. - South American Emigration - "The topography of South America today is totally different from what it was 20,000 years ago, the time when droves of Carians, Karians, and Negro colonists were leaving the Motherland to find new homes and more room upon the earth. When this exodus from the Motherland commenced we have not as yet been told, but there are various records of emigration some 35,000 years ago and others 70,000 years ago. Then South America was like the rest of the world - flat and without mountains." [Col. James Churchward, The Children of Mu]

Helios:
60,000 B.C. - Neanderthals - "Homo Neanderthalensis discovered at Shanidar cave, Iraq."

57,000 B.C. - Human Presence / Australia - "In 1974 a near complete skeleton was found near Lake Mungo, a dry lakes in western New South Wales. The corpse of this individual, Lake Mungo 3 was covered with red ochre before burial. In 1999 the specimen was restudied (Thorne, et. al.,1999). The researchers carried out ESR and U-series dating study. The age estimate obtained for the human skeleton through the combination of U-series and ESR analyses was 62,000 � 6000 years. The age agrees with age estimates for the burial sediment, 61,000 � 2000 years. The age results are far older than previously assumed. The authors concluded that the Lake Mungo 3 burial documents the earliest known human presence on the Australian continent. The specimens age implies that the present Australian indigenous population colonized the continent by 57,000-71,000 years ago."

58,000 B.C. - Rapid Advance / Norh American Glaciation - "There were various advances and retreats of the ice-cap after 113,000 B.C., with the fastest rate of accumulation taking place between 60,000 years ago and 17,000 years ago." [based on Popular Geologic Theory]

50,000 B.C. - Mexico - �"Mu's 1st colony in North America was established at Mexico more than 50,000 years. B.C." [Col. James Churchward, The Children of Mu]

50,000 B.C. - North America -�"If we were to start the beginning of man's history in America we would have to go back beyond 50,000 years ago and possibly more than 100,000 years ago. Geological records show very high and advanced civilization in North America more than 50,000 years ago. [Col. James Churchward, The Children of Mu]

50,000 B.C. - Scandinavia - "That part of Europe which now forms the Scandinavian countries had a settlement made from Central America at least 50,000 years ago. The Central American tradition says that the Quetzals 'had milk white skins, blue eyes and light, flaxen hair', the characteristics of the Scandinavians today." [Col. James Churchward, The Children of Mu]
