First of all, I don't THINK I have human fossils. I KNOW I have
Are you or the others out there MORE knowledgeable in the
identification of human skeletal remans (petrified or otherwise) than
the late, great Wilton M. Krogman.
HE -- not any of you -- wrote THE book, ``The Human Skeleton in
You've seen a photo of this great scientist holding one of my key
specimens. He had examined it very patiently and very carefully, then
admitted -- in astonishment -- that it is a human calvarium (a cranium
with the eye sockets broken off).
Secondly, it's wrong to state that no one is listening or paying
attention to this exchange of nasty dialogue. You'd be very, very
surprised to learn how many people ARE listening -- and in exotic
True, the vast majority of folks DON'T agree with me. But this is
quite understandable because I have tossed my hat in the lions' den
(and they're damn hungry).
True, most howlers have a scientific educational background. But this
doesn't mean a damn thing if what they were taught (about man's origin
and ancestry) was dinosaur manure, which indeed it is.
Thirdly -- then I'll shut up -- you have made the following statement:
``You post and repost the same stuff with
no change of any significance each time

and you are asking others to open their minds??????"
C'mon, Graham! You can do better than that. What now appears on
the home page about my stuff -- photos, etc. -- is much, much more
than you or anyone else out there ever envisioned when the bell
sounded late last March for the start of Round One.
Many more photos and much more information continually have been
But forget everything else! The bottom line is whether my specimens
are petrified bone. Too many out seem to be hypnotized by Andrew
MacRae's erroneous decree that, based on his analyses of the cell
structure, they are not bone.
They seem to put little stock in my rebuttal that Andrew MacRae
has put himself on a hot seat by concealing facts and evidence.
He KNOWS the specimens he examined ARE petrified bone but
stubbornly has been denying it.
One of these days, I'm going to prove he and his cohort Paul Myers are
active participants in the conspiracy to keep a truth suppressed.
Even worse, I will prove that all of their denials of my specimens
being petrified bone are nothing but a pack of lies.
