How can we know - that the changes in temperatures killed everybody except a few thousands - some 70.000 yrs ago?
What we do know is that one and the same population existed in the Susiluola Cave, already 120.000 ago - until some 11.000 years ago.

There are already a number of missing-links to the theories put foward by Mr. Roper. His time-lines are on the rigth side of sense and nonsense, but still far from precise. And his language-chart doesn`t hold water. Pluss, the following news are also quite embarassing - compared with Mr. Ropers time-line on the population of America.

The Royal Library of Alexandria was once the largest in the world. It is usually assumed to have been founded at the beginning of the 3rd century BC during the reign of Ptolemy II of Egypt after his father had set up the Temple of the Muses or Museum. The initial organization is attributed to Demetrius Phalereus. The Library is estimated to have stored at its peak 400,000 to 700,000 scrolls.
Destruction of the pagan temples
In the late 4th century (AD), persecution of pagans by Christians had reached new levels of intensity. Temples and statues were destroyed throughout the Roman empire, pagan rituals forbidden under punishment of death, and libraries closed. In 391, Emperor Theodosius ordered the destruction of all pagan temples, and the bishop of Alexandria, Theophilus, complied with this request. Socrates Scholasticus provides the following account of the destruction of the temples in Alexandria:

5th century scroll which illustrates the destruction of the Serapeum by Theophilus (source: Christopher Haas: Alexandria in late antiquity, Baltimore 1997)

"Demolition of the Idolatrous Temples at Alexandria, and the Consequent Conflict between the Pagans and Christians."

"At the solicitation of Theophilus bishop of Alexandria the emperor issued an order at this time for the demolition of the heathen temples in that city; commanding also that it should be put in execution under the direction of Theophilus. Seizing this opportunity, Theophilus exerted himself to the utmost to expose the pagan mysteries to contempt. And to begin with, he caused the Mithreum to be cleaned out, and exhibited to public view the tokens of its bloody mysteries. Then he destroyed the Serapeum, and the bloody rights of the Mithreum he publicly caricatured; the Serapeum also he showed full of extravagant superstitions, and he had the phalli of Priapus carried through the midst of the forum. [...] Thus this disturbance having been terminated, the governor of Alexandria, and the commander-in-chief of the troops in Egypt, assisted Theophilus in demolishing the heathen temples. These were therefore razed to the ground, and the images of their gods molten into pots and other convenient utensils for the use of the Alexandrian church; for the emperor had instructed Theophilus to distribute them for the relief of the poor. All the images were accordingly broken to pieces, except one statue of the god before mentioned, which Theophilus preserved and set up in a public place; `Lest,' said he, `at a future time the heathens should deny that they had ever worshiped such gods.'"

Boreas, I do agree with you that Topper is a little off base, however we know there was a mass extinction of homo sapians around 70,000 years ago and we don`t really know what cause it,maybe from disease.

Actually scientists are saying according to the documentery, the story of eve, that this extinction happen around 150,000 years ago instead of the second migation of 70,000 years ago,so go figure  130,000 years ago, and a new study of the climate.

Arctic-Tropic interactions;
A TIME-LINE

To understand our ethnic and cultural past we may find the "arctic incidence" - called ICE-TIME, as a somewhat clear shed of a time-line. The start of this time-line, a documented date for the "origin of man" is still far from scientifically answered.

But, - the consensus of a "first origin", a genesis, is nothing but a pre-requisite; to be able to understand the general process of the creation of all species.

Our entire background of nature, with our pre-human forefathers in its midst - did not drop in from the blue. At one point they necessarily had to AP-PEAR. As a pair. Of opposite sex.
A logic approach would include that we address this moment of creation as the result of a seminal process...

Most people I discuss with agree that we DID occur - in a creational moment -as a product of an ever-so-long evolution. Most people agree that we still DO NOT have real and valid clues to how far back the human being possibly goes.

Unfortunately there are scientists presenting their carnovarian and bavianian discoveries in around a Rift Valley as "the oldest possible trace" - rather than the "oldest known, so far". Consequently we stop at 1, 6 million as the "oldest substance found" claiming to be The Genuine "proto-human". Now what’s the chance of that, given that we haven’t looked through more than 0.1 % of the mass of bones, hidden underground in Africa alone? And then we have to add ALL discoveries from ALL the other continents, too. No?

Until further clarity arises we have more than work to do; to get clear on the time-lines, chronologies, objects of culture and movements of cultures - leading up to the present situation, - in terms of language, culture and ethnicity.


ZERO-POINT

That’s why I want to re-focus on the end of the large Ice-Time, the Arctic O-point, - because it:

1. Gives us a fair chance to build a quite complete picture of the last 10.000 years of Eurasian existence.

2. Assess and evaluate Mediterranean and South Asian interactions with the Arctic populations.

3. Relate discoveries of Arctic emigrations to the sub-arctic nature south of the Arctic hemisphere, - especially in mountain areas where a sub-arctic/sub-tropic climate gave good conditions for settlements in uninhabited areas.

“TRIBES OF ATLANTIS”

For this reason I see the ongoing discussion on Rivens thread; Tribes of Atlantis, - as very useful. The collective science of culture/language/ethnicity should be enough to clear this picture - and the ongoing research on the newfound texts from Af-ghan-i-stan are already setting new paratives, - in terms of the relations between Greek, Persian, Semitic and Aramaic languages.

Our "arctic angle" already made its day, - when I discovered that words like "man" and "hand" were present, with clear letters, - in a newly found Bactrian text. Written in an ancient, long gone language labelled "Old Persian", more than 3.000 years old.

Even the more of a surprise that even the combined word; "handa-man", existed. Written in a phonetic alphabet – and pronounced as in English; “hand-a-man”. Today’s experts of the ancient Bactrian language translate “handaman” to "limb". The same two-words, - meaning “hand-of-man” (our most important of “limbs”) is found in both Scandinavian, German and English.

This and other distinctive words have clearly showed a connection from the ancient Persians and an old, arctic culture. From the Mesolithic, Neolithic and Bronze age discoveries made in the Northern hemisphere the present updates from Chinese, Russian and European Archaeology all agree that the arctic area was populated by branches of the same culture, - in terms of ethnicity and cultural progressions. Spreading after ice-time, - all along the Northern Hemisphere, - soon populating the continent from Ocean to Ocean.

Given that the Russians, Kassaks and Turkmen still are labelled “Caucasians” we may presume that their closest ancestors also belonged to this classification. 9.000 years ago they started a spread, - from the Baltic - towards Scandinavia, Europe and Asia (Larger Russia). Already 8.000 years ago there were two parallel, still distinctive cultures existing in Eurasia, - at the same parallel as we still find the Major Linguistic Border that still divides Europe, all along the 1st parallel (30 degrees) east of Greenwich. Note that the division starts north of the Botnic Bay, divides The Aland Isles before reaching the river Wizla in Poland that defined the clear line southwards to Hungary and Transylvania.
That became the Fenno-Ugrians, who populated all areas north of the Black Sea, all around the Caspian Sea - and all the way to the Pacific Ocean and the Chinese wall. Norse myths tell that the "In the beginning The Aser created the Vaner, to populate the east. Thus that land is called Vanaheim”. The Finns still call Russia “Vene-je”, while the Baltics are called “Ved-di”. In Norse language the Northern Finns were called “K-Vens”, while Vaner/Vanir as a popular name is still present in Caucasian populations. The As/Aes/Aesir likewise.

To make things short we may recall the well-known "Komsa-culture", - that reached various places of Scandinavia, especially in the high North, already 9.900 years ago. In the last decades archaeologists have unearthed traces from the Kolan Peninsula and the White Sea showing even older habitats, - aging back to 17.000 BP. In the years 1995-97 a Russian-Norwegian expedition uncovered 40.000 years old habitats east of the White Sea, at the Pechora-basin. The clear parallels of buildings, weapons and other items showed clear parallels to the high-artic “Komsa-culture” of Mesolithic Kola, Finland and Norway. The chronological time-line conclusively shows that the first Russians descend from a very ancient tribe, - that already 40.000 years ago were incredibly well adapted to the high Arctic climate and nature.

7.000 BP the complementary cultures had spread all along Eurasia, establishing lines of communication from Ocean to Ocean, - and beyond. To the west we see a stringent parallel to the “Komsa-culture” that develops distinctive differences in style and forms, creating a "complementary tradition". Thus we can identify a western culture, - covering today’s Germany, France, England and Scandinavia.

This "western culture" spread as different cultural “branches”, - but they were all based on the old root of the "Nordic language", - which today is spoken only in Scandinavia. Thus it is important to point to the fact that the same language once was shared by all sons and daughters of the “Scots”, “Picts”, “Herulis”, “Goths”, “Celts”, “Saxon” and other tribes known from Bronze Age Europe. Until the Latin invasion threw the old family-threes, societies and cultures around.

Two years ago we heard of a 6000 years old city found in Dagestan, bearing traces of burned clay-tablets with clear, straigth symbols similar to our versal letters. Recent works on the 3000 years old Bactrian language (found in scrolls from Afghanistan) have revealed a straight, linguistical import from the arctic language. The links between Bactrian, Aryan and Arameic are obvious. The Bactrian also containing expressions of clear, arctic origin.


OCCAMS ERAZOR

Over the last 3500 years we see that warfare spreads to all the great Kingdoms and Cultures of the ancient Asia. Finally it reaches also the old kingdoms of the arctic culture. 1.000 years ago the Greek-Roman culture finally overtook the last of the Arctic kingdoms. As Charlemagne and his successors laid the entire Europe under Rome, the Imperial Church of Istanbul took care of Macedonia, Bulgaria, Balkan, Transylvania, Moldova, Slovakia , Polen, Belo-Rus, Lituania and Russia, - east to the Chinese Wall.

In 987 the Grand Duke of Kiev – on behalf of the entire Russia - subjugated to The Church of Istanbul. Since then the language started to change, - creating a combination of clerical Greek and native Fenno-Ugrian. The result being the "broadband vocabulary" we find in the present "Grylic" - as it is spoken in Eastern Europe and Russia. Thus we have a mixture of Greek and Fenno-Ugrian that became “Slavonic”.


By the Norman defeat in England, 1066, the last stand against a religious rule lost – and the old arctic culture completely cease to profile its existence – as a historical, civil and cultural actor. In the coming 500 years the Eastern and Western Church where the only cultural institutions left. Consequently the old, pagan mythology, language and culture was subjugated, altered and changed. In some cases it was even erased, - like the ancient English, German, Polish, Russian and Turk languages. None of them are still spoken. A similar eradication had fallen on the Bactrians some 2.000 years BP, as it happened to the Norse 1000 BP, and to the Indians some 500 B.P. Thus “Occams Erazor” had reached around the globe,- relflecting the CeZarian dream; Ruling the World.

VISIBLE TRACES

Though, we still find old Fenno-speaking tribes in remote areas of northern and eastern Russia. Even at the high Arctic Ocean, we still see Fenno-Russians finding ways and means to keep a satisfactory supply of food and other necessities. Keeping their old life-style, traditions AND the original mother-tongue in tact. In other areas offside the axis Istanbul-Kiev-Moscow we see that the Fenno-Ugrian language managed to survive – even in good shape, - such as in Hungary and Estonia as well as its "homeland" Finland.

A look at the map also explains how the Finnish Bay and the Baltic Ocean becomes a meeting-point of travels east and west. Already our ancient survivors of ice-time, - that appeared in the White ocean, - had to arrive from somewhere. Thus the discovery of the 40-70.000 years old population in SW Finland (1995) was imminent. All the more as the Finnsh/Swedish border is still the same today as it was during Mesolithic, Neolithic, bronze-age and Viking-time. Thus the local population in the Botnic Bay can pride themselves with their ancient border between east and west, the river Tornea ( “Tower-river”) - being “9000 years – and never stamped by soldier-boots”.

The original root-language of the western culture is also preserved by the coastal population of the Finnish Archipelago, along all the coastline of Finland. Thus we see that the bi-lingual coast of Finland have an ancient position as a meeting-point/melting-point between the eastern and western continents. Recent discoveries of genetic, linguistic and etymythologic nature are underlining the central position of the Baltic area, as a key to understand the parallel cultures of the eastern, respectively western Eurasia.

------

The following article from Nature 2001 gives a rock solid base-line for assessing the whereabouts of the “Komsa-culture”, the immediate ancestors to the present Fenno-Scandians – not to say all Caucasians.

The ice man cameth early
Early mammoth hunters braved the Arctic.

Nature; September 4th, 2001
HELEN PEARSON

Our hardy ancestors survived north of the Arctic Circle as far back as the last ice age, unearthed tools now reveal. The mammoth hunter’s braved sub-zero temperatures on desolate tundra at least 20,000 years earlier than was thought, the remains suggest, although whether the people were Neanderthals or modern humans is a mystery.

The artefacts, dug up in an Arctic riverbed, show that humans once lived as far north as Siberia and Alaska, say archaeologist John Svendsen, of the University of Bergen in Norway, and his team1. The stone tools, horse and reindeer bones and a mammoth tusk with hand-made markings, were found at Mamontovaya Kurya in European Russia.
Radiocarbon dating puts the finds between 35,000 and 40,000 years old. Previously, humans were thought to have colonized this northern region in the last stages of the ice age only some 13,000 years ago.

The 40,000-year date "marks a turning point in the history of human evolution in Europe," says Svendsen's team. Around that time, roaming Neanderthals are thought to have given way to anatomically modern humans migrating northwards out of Africa and into Europe. The new haul does not reveal the identity of the Arctic dwellers to be either Neanderthal or modern.
Either way the result is exciting, says archaeologist John Gowlett of the University of Liverpool, UK. Either Neanderthals travelled further north than was thought, or modern humans moved and adjusted to northern extremes very quickly - within a few thousand years of leaving hotter climes.

Temperatures seem to have fluctuated markedly at that time, pushing populations north or south. Early modern humans may have followed herds of mammoths, wild horses or reindeer northwards during a warmer period, speculates Gowlett. During colder spells, freezing steppes extended as far south as Greece. "Humans had a hold on the north, if only for a short time," he says.

Highs and lows
To survive at these latitudes, humans have to be well adapted, explains anthropologist Chris Stringer of the Natural History Museum in London. Temperatures fall to -40°C and there is 24-hour darkness for part of the year.
"You've got to have clothing, housing and fire," he says. Eating meat and fat would have been important, as there are few plants. Cold-dwelling populations such as the Inuits also have physiological differences that make them more tolerant to the cold.

Whereas modern humans are known for their ability to survive in extreme conditions, Neanderthals were thought to lack such skills. If the remains are Neanderthal, then "they were not a load of numbskulls," says Gowlett.

Our view of the historic landscape in which the hunters lived is also changing. The animal bones add to mounting evidence that this region of the Arctic, although cold, was not ice-bound 35,000 years ago. Instead, it probably consisted of open, grassy steppes.

MYSTERY OF THE FUTHARK
ALPHABET
The Futhark alphabet was used by the North European Germanic peoples (the Swedish, Norwegian and Danish) between the 3rd and 17th centuries A.D. About 3500 stone monuments in Europe, concentrated mostly in Sweden and Norway, are claimed to have been inscribed with this writing.

The purpose of this article is to draw the readers' attention to the fact that this Futhark alphabet, which is also called the Runic (1) stemmed from the very same origin as did the ancient Turkish (2) inscriptions with Gokturk (3) alphabet

The monuments considered to be in the 16-rune futhark group belong to a later period called the Viking Age which started at about AD. 800. During this period, the 24-characters of the Primitive Norse runes became simplified and reduced to 16-rune series.The pages 25-30 and the rest of the book in Jansson's study are allocated to this subject which is beyond the concern of my article.

The Europen scholars have come to recognize from the very beginning the obvious similarity between the character forms of the Primitive Norse stones and those of the C.Asian Gokturk monuments, but for certain various reasons have refrained from tackling this point by denying all kinds of plausible relations. All throughout the period of 160 years that elapsed between the years of 1730 and 1893, that is between the discovery of Orhun monuments and their definitely final decipherment, fanciful theories were fabricated about the Vikings' (or Indo-Germans', or Celts', or Goths') prehistoric emigrations into C.Asia, and the **** of Orhun stones as landmarks of their presence and civilization dating back to several thousands of years BC in that region.

Only when in 1893, it was understood that these inscriptions were not written in any other tongue but pure Turkish, then those fanciful theories were discarded, and the proposed pre-historic datings were revised to be not earlier than AD 700. Even today, a number of academicians are still straining at finding a Sogdian, Persian or Aramaic origin for Turkish inscriptions, but their efforts at proving their claims all end in vain.

A casual comparision of ancient scripts is all needed to see that the characters used in Orhun monuments are more identical with the futhark than any of those alleged originals. Besides this close resemblance, it is an exciting fact that the Primitive Norse runes declared to have ambiguous contexts can be rendered meaningfully when they are exposed to our novel method of read-ing ancient Turkish scripts.

As I have remarked at the beginning of this article, it must be kept in mind that the ancient Turkish script used in Central Asia and the Primitive Norse futhark in Europe, as well as those other scripts mentioned in passing above, have all stemmed from a common origin in a very remote past. Then, the Turkish, Germanic, and other tribes have independently relied on this common legacy of writing for the monuments in their own tongues.

YOUNGER EDDA
"Reminiscent of Timaeus, the Younger Edda legend tells of an ancient Swedish king named Gylfe, who journeys to Asgard, where he assumes the name Ganglere (the wanderer). There he beholds a land of temples, golden palaces, and plowed fields populated by a mighty and noble race called the Asas. Just as the Egyptian priests relate to Solon, king of Athens, the tale of Atlantis and of the great flood that befell his ancestors, the Asas tell Ganglere the tale of Ragnarok. Asas comes from Norse word Aas, which means a “ridge of high land”. Hence the Asas, like the Atlanteans, would appear to be a fictitious race that once dwelt high up on the ice sheet’s glistening, paradise of ice."

The missing link with Neanderthals was a fraud
It appeared to be one of archaeology's most sensational finds. The
skull fragment discovered in a peat bog near Hamburg (Germany) was
more than 36,000 years old - and was the vital missing link between
modern humans and Neanderthals. This, at least, is what Professor
Reiner Protsch von Zieten - a distinguished anthropologist - told his
scientific colleagues, to global acclaim, after being invited to date
the extremely rare skull. However, the professor's 30-year-old
academic career has now ended in disgrace after the revelation that
he systematically falsified the dates on this and numerous other
"stone age" relics.
His university in Frankfurt announced the professor had been
forced to retire because of numerous "falsehoods and manipulations".
According to experts, his deceptions may mean an entire tranche of
the history of man's development will have to be rewritten.
"Anthropology is going to have to completely revise its picture of
modern man between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago," said Thomas
Terberger, the archaeologist who discovered the hoax. "Prof Protsch's
work appeared to prove that anatomically modern humans and
Neanderthals had co-existed, and perhaps even had children together.
This now appears to be rubbish."
The scandal only came to light when Prof Protsch was caught
trying to sell his department's entire chimpanzee skull collection to
the United States. An inquiry later established that he had also
passed off fake fossils as real ones and had plagiarised other
scientists' work. His discovery appeared to show that Neanderthals
had spread much further north than was previously known. But his
university inquiry was told that a crucial Hamburg skull fragment,
which was believed to have come from the world's oldest German, a
Neanderthal known as Hahnhöfersand Man, was actually a mere 7,500
years old, according to Oxford University's radiocarbon dating unit.
The unit established that other skulls had been wrongly dated too.
Another of the professor's sensational finds, "Binshof-Speyer" woman,
lived in 1,300 BCE and not 21,300 years ago, as he had claimed, while
"Paderborn-Sande man" (dated at 27,400 BCE) only died a couple of
hundred years ago, in 1750.
"It's deeply embarrassing. Of course the university feels very
bad about this," Professor Ulrich Brandt, who led the investigation
into Prof Protsch's activities, said yesterday. "Prof Protsch refused
to meet us. But we had 10 sittings with 12 witnesses. German police
also investigated the professor for fraud, following allegations that
he had tried to sell the university's 278 chimpanzee skulls for
$70,000 to a US dealer. The university admitted that it should have
discovered the professor's fabrications far earlier. But it pointed
out that, like all public servants in Germany, the high-profile
anthropologist was virtually impossible to sack, and had also proved
difficult to pin down.

Kant and Schiller both assert that "A myth does not represent debasement, or a sinking down from original perfection, not a victory of sensuality over reason, but on the contrary, it manifests the advancement of a man from a state of comparative rudeness to freedom and civilization."
I am not in accord with these ideas because common reasoning tells me the case should be reversed. Fully ninety-nine percent of the myths are traceable to legends. Legends are history orally handed down. History is a record of facts, so that myths instead of "manifesting advancement" manifest a retrogression; for they show that history, a part of civilization, is being forgotten. Therefore that civilization has declined. [Col. James Churchward, Sacred Symbols Of Mu, p. 24-25]
