30,000 years in South America?

Postby oldarchystudent » Wed Nov 20, 2013 2:48 pm

And this from Archaeology Magazine, no less...

"MONTEVIDEO, URUGUAY—Paleontologists have unearthed more than 1,000 fossils from a bone bed at Arroyo del Vizcaíno in southern Uruguay. Many of the bones, which date to 29,000 to 30,000 years old, are remains of three extinct species of giant ground sloth. Some of these sloth bones bear marks that could have been made by tool-wielding human hunters."

The fossils found at Arroyo del Vizcaíno might simply be a product of nature mimicking human tools, and the authors acknowledge that possibility.

Ah yes...because "nature" has been known to do that just to screw with us!
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Thanks for the post. Pretty interesting, and Nat. Geog. also posted it. If it was stone tool marks, there should be itsy bitsy bits in the grooves, hopefully anyway.

Sure is on same temporal par as Monte Verde 2, and some Brazillian sites.
