Jairazbhoy's "Rameses III, Father of Ancient America"
On Mon, Jan 12, 2004, 11:17am (CST+6), Boedicca Somebody posted
considerable information here on the Winters theory.
Olmec language and culture claims as examples of "scholarly linguistics"
as something of a joke. His only publication on Olmec language (beyond
his own webpages) was in the publication, The Mankind Quarterly, which
is a non-peer reviewed publication with decidedly racist leanings. -- ~~
+++ True scholars believe that any paper by any author should stand by
itself, regardless of criticisms of the publishing firm. It would have
been pointless for him to even submit his "diffusion" papers to any
publication controlled by the archy establishment or the Mexican
government. They are not allowed to publish anything relating to
- Yesterday, I cited information published in sci-archy under a
different title. It cites material written by two highly respected
archys, Michael Coe and Stephen Houston. They generally support the
Winters theory, as do many others.
- There is much archy evidence that Africans had visited the east
coasts of Central America and Mexico in pre-Olmec tribal times and
- There is much other evidence in the Olmec area that the Egyptians,
Phoenicians, Chinese, etc. had been there in Olmec times.
- If one is to understand why there is only one brick from Comalcalco
cited, one has to know something about Comalcalco. Comalcalco was
originally an Olmec site that may well have later become the first Mayan
site. Ekholm's excavations in the late 1950s showed that Temple II was
rebuilt 37 times with fired brick and mortar. The brick in question was
surely one that he recovered from one of the earliest Mayan levels.
There is also much evidence at Comalcalco that the Romans had been there
at the time of the earliest fired brick levels. What have been
reconstructed at Comalcalco are temples from the later levels. For
political reasons, the Mexican government has prevented any further
excavations of the lower levels. +++
