Just butting in here for a moment...

Science isn't the be-all and end-all of any study. Often they
get it wrong-or perhaps thought to be right until new data comes
along. I was watching a program last night on NOVA re. the first

The Clovis point [spear-tip] kept coming up at 13,000 years ago
for the first peoples coming across from Asia - remember when it
was 10,000 years ago - but know one could figure out why this
point just popped up.

But anyway, the 13,000 year ago date got carved in stone until a
few archeologists began to dig deeper, and sure enough they
began to find evidence of human habitation back to 16,000 years

Naturally they were upsetting the apple-cart and were then
accused of falsifying and hoaxing because it went against the
mainstream. It took a few years and the credibility of the
archeologists who were writing papers on this new data before
the old Clovis point period as being the furthest back began to
crumble and I'm willing to bet that it will go back further than

There is evidence now that the first hominids came from Asia and
not Africa.

Egyptology rejects any data that pushes the history of that
religion back further than 5,500 years ago, yet evidence
suggests that it goes back as much as 9,000.

Science has a lot of it's own problems and often ignores its own
hard evidence.

For the most part science ignores the UFO phenomenon, but those
scientists that don't ignore it usually find compelling evidence
once they actually study the data. There is a growing list to
support that.
