There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

(09-29-2020, 12:09 AM)BorneanTiger Wrote: The northwestern Saudi region of Tabuk has come in the news over the discovery of human footprints which were found in the lake-bed of Al-Athar (meaning “The Trace”), and dated to approximately 120,000 years ago! Footprints of elephants and other animals were also identified alongside 233 fossils, and these are considered to be the earliest footprints in the Arabian Peninsula: https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/...091120.php, https://news.sky.com/story/120-000-year-...a-12075198, https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/09/...ans-arabia, https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-new...180975874/, https://www.nationalgeographic.com/scien...om-africa/

However, contrary to what Sky News and the National Geographic said, it is not necessarily the earliest evidence for humans in the Arabian Peninsula, because the U.A.E. Emirate of Sharjah has an archaeological site that is dated to as far back as 125,000 years ago, at Jabal Al-Fayah near Al-Madam, on the border with Oman: https://science.sciencemag.org/content/331/6016/453https://www.livescience.com/10340-lost-c...-gulf.htmlhttps://www.nature.com/news/2011/110127/...11.55.html

It is worth mentioning that Jabal Al-Fayah was considered to be the oldest settlement of anatomically modern humans outside of Africa, since the time of its discovery in 2011, until an adult upper jawbone, dated to 170,000–200,000 years ago, was found in the cave of Misliyah, in the northern Israeli region of Mount Carmel: https://science.sciencemag.org/content/359/6374/456, https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/20...140923.htmhttps://www.newscientist.com/article/mg2...years-ago/https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-01261-5

To quote the Times of Israelhttps://www.timesofisrael.com/jawbone-fo...evolution/

“Based on fossils found in Ethiopia, for the past 50 years scientists have believed that modern humans appeared in Africa, the “cradle of humanity,” roughly 160,000-200,000 years ago. The earliest record of migration outside of Africa was dated to around 90,000-120,000 years ago, through fossils discovered at digs in Israel’s Skhul and Qafzeh caves almost 90 years ago.

With this Misliya cave jawbone, however, the history of human evolution is being rewritten.

“The entire narrative of the evolution of Homo sapiens must be pushed back by at least 100,000-200,000 years,” said Hershkovitz, the head of the Dan David Center for Human Evolution and Biohistory Research at TAU’s Steinhardt Museum of Natural History.

The Misliya fossil not only resets the date for Homo sapien evolution and migration, but also spurs the mind-blowing implication that modern humanity did not evolve independently but rather alongside — and intermingled with — many other hominin groups, such as Neanderthals, he said.”

Now for the oldest known human or hominin footprints in the World, which were found in Laetoli in northern Tanzania (south of the famous Olduvai Gorge), and dated to approximately 3.66 million years ago: https://elifesciences.org/articles/19568, https://journals.plos.org/plosone/articl...09769.g001

Laetoli, by Guston Sondin-Klausnerser (late February, 2006):
   

Test-pit L8 at Laetoli Site S. In the northern part of the test-pit (at the top), the Footprint Tuff is particularly altered, damaged by plant roots and dislodged along natural fractures. Image by Fidelis T. Masao et al. (14th of December, 2016): https://elifesciences.org/articles/19568
   

Cast of the "Laetoli footprints", on display in the Hall of Human Origins in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. The entire footprint trail is 88 feet (26.82 m) long and includes impressions left by two individuals, with the smaller one appearing to be that of a human, and the bigger one (which had a diverging toe, similar to a modern ape) appearing to be that of an australopithecine (like perhaps Australopithecus afarensis). Image by Tim Evanson (17th of May, 2012): https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/7282890638/
   

Three dimensional scans of experimental footprints and a Laetoli footprint, by D. A. Raichlen et al., contours are 1 mm: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/articl...09769.g001
A) Contour map of modern human footprint (Subject 6) walking with a normal, extended limb gait and side view of normal, extended limb footprint.
B) Contour map of modern human footprint (Subject 6) walking with a BKBH gait and side view of BKBH print.
C) Contour map of Laetoli footprint (G1-37) and side view of Laetoli footprint (G1-37). Note the difference in heel and toe depths between modern humans walking with extended and BKBH gaits. Laetoli has similar toe relative to heel depths as the modern human extended limb print.

Masao et al.: https://doi.org/10.7554/eLife.19568.008
   

Interpretation of a diagramatics of the hominin footprint in Laetoli, which is thought to be from A. afarensis; Ileret (1.5 mya) from Homo erectus, and H. sapiens.

Like I said, this topic is dependent on archaeology (hence tombs or graves) and theories, so here are additional graves or tombs of interest, and note how long they are:

1) Habil (Abel, the son of Adam and Eve who was murdered by his brother Qabil (Cain) in Abrahamic belief), in the area of Wadi Baradah in Syria (northwest of Damascus, near the border with Lebanon): https://www.arabamerica.com/searching-en...bels-tomb/https://www.islamiclandmarks.com/syria/tomb-of-habil

There is more to it than just graves (which have to be analysed). Mount Tendürek (or Al-Judiy, credit: M. Fikret Yilmaz, 22nd of August 2007) in the Ağrı and Van provinces of eastern Turkey, close to the borders with Iran, has a large aggregate (thus natural) structure in the shape of a ship, known as the "Durupınar site": https://noahsfloodnoahsark.wordpress.com...ount-judi/
   

Obviously, this is not a ship (hence it is not Noah's ark, contrary to what people have said), and despite the fact that there are no archaeological remains which point to a ship having been there (like wooden bits), an issue which Lorence G. Collins of the Department of Geological Sciences, California State University (Northridge), had mentioned in Page 2 is the fact that it is shaped like like a boat, besides that it measures about 515 feet (156.972 m, a bit like what the Book of Genesis (6: 14–16) in the Old Testament Bible said about Noah's Ark): http://www.csun.edu/~vcgeo005/Sutton%20Hoo%2014.pdf

So the question is:

Why is this natural rock formation in the shape of a ship, with measurements that more or less correspond to the Biblical description of Noah's Ark, as if a ship of such dimensions had once been there, despite the lack of objects (like wooden parts of a boat) which could have served as archaeological evidence for the ship's presence?

One non-archaeological fact stands out, nevertheless. Belief in the great flood is not confined to the Abrahamic religions (like Islam & Christianity) or near Eastern societies. Accounts of a great deluge are seen in ancient Sumerian tablets (such as the Epic of Gilgamesh) from Mesopotamia (mostly Iraq, with parts of what are now Iran, Turkey, Syria and Kuwait), the Deucalion in Greek mythology, the lore of the K’iche’ and Maya peoples in Mesoamerica, the Gun-Yu myth of China, the stories of the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa tribe of North America, and the stories of the Muisca people, to name but a few. In particular, Noah is referred to as "Manou" (मनु) in Sanskrit scriptures of ancient India, with the earliest Indian account of the flood being found in the Vedic Satapatha Brahmana, and then the Puranas (including the Bhagavata Purana and the Matsya Purana), and the Mahabharata. The fact that this is a worldwide belief suggests that we are all descended from Noah or Manou, hence the Sanskrit term "Maanav" (मानव, meaning "of Manu" or "children of Manu") being applied to humans, and just as the Bible (Book of Genesis, 8:4) refers to the spot where the ark came to land as one of the mountains of 'Ararat', the Matsya Purana of India refers to them as the mountains of 'Malaya': https://www.ancient-origins.net/human-or...lINYwb71lo, https://www.speakingtree.in/allslides/ar...oah-407979, https://books.google.com/books?redir_esc...nu&f=false
