In November 1859, Charles Darwin published a most dangerous idea - that all living things had evolved through a process of natural selection.

Charles Robert Darwin, FRS (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist and geologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary theory. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.

Alfred Russel Wallace
Charles Darwin
Although there was almost no mention of mankind in Darwin’s treatise, the implications were unavoidable and led to a more radical change in human self-perception than anything before it in recorded history.
In one blow, Darwin had relegated us from divinely-created beings to apes - the culmination of evolution by the impersonal mechanism of natural selection.
But are the scientists right in applying the theory of evolution to the strange two-legged hominid known as ‘man’ ?
Charles Darwin himself was strangely quiet on this point but his co-discoverer, Alfred Wallace, was less reluctant to express his views.
Wallace himself was adamant that ‘some intelligent power has guided or determined the development of man.’ (the Æons ?)
One hundred years of science have failed to prove Alfred Wallace wrong.

Alfred Russel Wallace OM FRS (8 January 1823 – 7 November 1913) was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist, and biologist. He is best known for independently conceiving the theory of evolution through natural selection; his paper on the subject was jointly published with some of Charles Darwin's writings in 1858. This prompted Darwin to publish his own ideas in 'On the Origin of Specie's. Wallace did extensive fieldwork, first in the Amazon River basin and then in the Malay Archipelago, where he identified the faunal divide now termed the 'Wallace Line', which separates the Indonesian archipelago into two distinct parts: a western portion in which the animals are largely of Asian origin, and an eastern portion where the fauna reflect Australasia.

Anthropologists have failed miserably to produce fossil evidence of man’s ‘missing link’ with the apes, and there has been a growing recognition of the complexity of organs such as the human brain.
Such are the problems with the application of Darwinism to mankind that the evolution of Aryan Man has been described as 'an awesome improbability’.

Sir Arthur Keith FRS
The anthropologist Sir Arthur Keith listed the anatomical characteristics peculiar to each of the primate species, calling them ‘generic characters’ which set each apart from the others.

Sir Arthur Keith FRS (5 February 1866 – 7 January 1955) was a Scottish anatomist and anthropologist, who became a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Hunterian Professor and conservator of the Hunterian Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons in London (not to be confused with the Hunterian Museum Glasgow Scotland).

His results were as follows: gorilla 75; chimpanzee 109; orang-outang 113; gibbon 116; Cro-Magnon Man 312.
Keith thus showed scientifically that Cro-Magnon Man was nearly three times more distinctive than any other ape.

Cro-Magnon Man
Cro-Magnon is a name that has been used to describe the first modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) of the European Upper Paleolithic. The earliest known remains of Cro-Magnon humans are radiocarbon dated to 43,000 years before present. Modern Indigenous Northern Europeans descend from the Cro-Magnon peoples. Cro-Magnons were robustly built and powerful. The body was generally heavy and solid with a strong musculature. The forehead was fairly straight rather than sloping like in Neanderthals (see below), and with only slight brow-ridges. The face was short and wide. The chin was prominent. The brain capacity was about 1,600 cubic centimetres (98 cu in), larger than the average for modern humans, however, recent research suggests that the physical dimensions of so-called "Cro-Magnon" are not sufficiently different from modern humans to warrant a separate designation.

The greatest mystery of Cro-Magnon Man is its incredible brain.

Human Brain
During the last fifteen years, scientists have used new imaging technologies (such as positron-emission tomography) to discover more about the human brain than ever before.
The full extent of the complexity of its billions of cells has thus become more and more apparent.

'most complex object in the known universe'
In addition to the brain’s physical complexity, its performance knows no bounds - mathematics and art, abstract thought and conceptualization and, above all, moral conscience and self-awareness.
Whilst many of the human brain’s secrets remain shrouded in mystery, enough has been revealed for it to be described as ’the most complex object in the known universe’.

Human Brain - Synapses
Evolutionists see the brain as nothing more than a set of algorithms, but they are forced to admit that it is so complex and unique that there is no chance of reverse engineering the evolutionary process that created it.
And so we are left with some puzzles regarding the development of the brain:

Where was the competitor that caused the brain of Cro-Magnon Man to evolve to such an extreme level of size and complexity ? 
What rival caused intellectual ability to be such an essential survival development for our species ? 
Who were we trying to outsmart ? 
Could inter-species competition be the explanation ? 
In modern times our most significant achievements - space travel and nuclear weapons for example - have come from superpower competition. 
Did primitive men split into competitive, rival groups ? 
Could Neandertal Man have been a competitive threat to his fellow Homo sapiens ?

Neanderthal Man and Cro-Magnon Girl
On the contrary, the evidence suggests that Neanderthal Man and Cro-Magnon Man co-existed relatively peacefully - and even interbred, to a limited extent, in the Fertile Crescent
Furthermore, early hominids continued to use simple stone tools for millions of years up to about 200,000 years ago; there is no sign of any escalation in tool use caused by an inter-species conflict.
So, in the absence of an intellectual rival that fits the time frame, the orthodox evolutionary scenario for the brain seems to be fundamentally implausible...

Cro-Magnon Man
The appearance of Cro-Magnon Man (Aryan Man) is more than a baffling puzzle - it is highly improbable, and close to impossible, according to the fundamental principles of Darwinism.
If we use an ape as the starting point, it is widely agreed that a significant number of big evolutionary jumps are necessary to evolve into a man.
It is also widely agreed that mutation is the mechanism by which natural selection works.
It is the combination of these improbable factors and the relatively short period of six million years allowed for man’s evolution from the apes, which has caused such discomfort.

Richard Dawkins
The great power of Darwinism, according to its proponents such as the much discredited Richard Dawkins, is that, given enough time, natural selection can explain anything and everything.
But when it comes to Cro-Magnon Man, the lack of evolutionary time becomes a major problem.
What are the odds against Cro-Magnon Man benefiting from not one, but several macro-mutations in the course of less than six million years ?
However, scientists point out that the vast majority of mutations are bad.
They also point out that macro-mutations - mutations which produce big changes - are particularly dangerous to a species and thus unlikely to survive.
Furthermore, they accept that even if a positive mutation does take hold in a species, it will do so only in the right circumstances when a small population becomes isolated.

Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon Man
In summary, the mutational mechanism must take a long, long time.
The problem can be looked at another way.
One of the central principles of Darwinism is that ’nature never over-endows a species beyond the needs of everyday existence’.
So, why was it that, in the complete absence of an intellectual rival, Cro-Magnon Man did acquire a brain which was light years beyond its requirements for everyday existence ?
It is a scenario which seems utterly implausible, and flies in the face of our understanding of evolution as a slow and gradual process.
Common sense would suggest at least another million years for Cro-Magnon Man to develop from stone tools to using other materials, and perhaps a hundred million years to master such trades as mathematics, engineering and astronomy.
We shouldn't even be dreaming of space probes.
Scientific evidence shows a 98 per cent genetic similarity between man and the chimpanzee, and it must be asked how a 2 per cent difference in DNA can account for the astonishing difference between man and his primate ’cousins’.
After all, a dog shares 98 per cent of its genes with a fox, yet the two animals closely resemble each other.
Somehow we must explain how a mere 2 per cent genetic difference can account for so many ’value added’ features in mankind - the brain, language, modern anatomy and sexuality - to name but a few.

Human Chromosomes
Modern (Aryan) Man
Furthermore, it is a strange fact that Cro-Magnon Man has only 46 chromosomes, compared to 48 in other hominids, chimpanzees and gorillas.

The theory of natural selection has been unable to suggest how the fusing together of two chromosomes - a major structural change - should have come about in such a short time scale.
The scientific evidence indicates that an unknown hand upgraded Homo Erectus with a series of deliberate, focused improvements to a form we now identify as Cro-Magnon, and subsequently, Modern (Aryan) Man.

It was formerly thought by some palaeontologists that Neanderthal somehow morphed into Cro-Magnon, and that Cro-Magnon was the progenitor of human beings as we know them today.
There are, however, serious problems with the assumptions about when modern human types actually appeared on Earth.
Even if we take the evolving scientific view of the present day, we find that Cro-Magnon man was something altogether different from other anatomically modern humans.
Over and over again we read in scientific studies that Cro-Magnon man was just an “anatomically modern human”.
The experts will say:
The Cro-Magnons lived in Europe between 35,000 and 10,000 years ago.
They are virtually identical to modern man, being tall and muscular and slightly more robust than most modern humans.

Lascaux Cave Paintings
Lascaux Cave Paintings
Notice how they slip in the statement that Cro-Magnons were “slightly more robust”.
The fact is, the Cro-Magnon man was, compared to the other “anatomically modern humans” around him, practically a 'superman'.
They were skilled hunters, toolmakers and artists famous for the cave art at places such as Lascaux, Chauvet, and Altamira.

'the males were as tall as 6 feet'
 'high cranium
and an upright face'
They had a high cranium, an upright face, and cranial capacity “about the same as modern humans”, but strangely less than that of Neanderthals.
The males were as tall as 6 feet.
They appeared in Europe in the upper Pleistocene, about 40,000 years ago and “their geographic origin is still unknown”.
Their skeletal remains show a “few small differences from modern humans”.
Of course, the “out of Africa” theory advocates suggest that Cro-Magnon came from Sub Saharan Africa, and a temperate climate and that, “they would eventually adapt to all extremes of heat and cold”.
In this way, the “slight differences” between Cro-Magnon and other forms of anatomically modern humans can be explained away as an adaptation to cold.

'Aurignacian Technology'
But, as we will see, this idea doesn’t hold water.
Cro-Magnon’s tools are described as the 'Aurignacian' technology, characterized by bone and antler tools, such as spear tips (the first) and harpoons.
They also used animal traps, and bow and arrow.
They invented shafts and handles for their knives, securing their blades with bitumen, a kind of tar, as long as 40 thousand years ago.

Other improvements included the invention of the 'atlatl', a large bone or piece of wood with a hooked groove used for adding distance and speed to spears.
They also invented more sophisticated spear points, such as those that detach after striking and cause greater damage to prey.
The Cro-Magnon type man was also the “originator” of such abstract concepts as “time”.
They marked time by lunar phases, recording them with marks on a piece of bone, antler or stone.
Some of these “calendars” contained a record of as many as 24 lunations.
In the relatively recent past, tool industries diversified.

Gravettian Artefacts
Venus de Lespugue
The Gravettian industry (25 to 15 thousand years ago), characterized by ivory tools such as backed blades, is associated with mammoth hunters.

The Gravettian toolmaking culture was a specific archaeological industry of the European Upper Paleolithic era prevalent before the last glacial epoch. It is named after the type site of La Gravette in the Dordogne region of France where its characteristic tools were first found and studied. It lasted until 22,000 years ago. Where found, it succeeded the artifacts datable to the Aurignacian culture.

One type of brief industry was Solutrean, occurring from 18 to 15 thousand years ago and limited to South-west France and Spain.
It is characterized by unique and finely crafted “laurel leaf” blades, made with a pressure technique requiring a great skill.
The industry is associated with horse hunters.
The tool industry of the 'Clovis Culture' in North America (11 to 8 thousand years ago) is notable for its remarkable similarity to Solutrean.
Some suggest that the Solutrean culture migrated to North America around 12,000 thousand years ago.
Cro-Magnon people lived in tents, and other man-made shelters, in groups of several families. 

Cro-Magnon Burial
They were nomadic hunter-gatherers, and had elaborate rituals for hunting, birth and death. 
Multiple burials are common in the areas where they were found.
What is most interesting is that from 35 to 10 thousand years ago, there was no differentiation by sex or age in burials.
They included special grave goods, as opposed to everyday, utilitarian objects, suggesting a very increased ritualization of death and burial.
They were the first confirmed to have domesticated animals, starting by about 15 thousand years ago (though ancient sapiens may have domesticated the dog as much as 200 thousand years ago).
They were the first to leave extensive works of art, such as cave paintings and carved figures of animals and pregnant women.

Buffalo Sculptures
Horse Cave Painting
Huge caves lavishly decorated with murals depicting animals of the time were at first rejected as fake for being too sophisticated.
Then they were dismissed as being primitive, categorized as hunting, fertility or other types of sympathetic magic.
Re-evaluations have put these great works of art in a more prominent place in art history.
They show evidence of motifs, of following their own stylistic tradition, of “impressionist” like style, perspective, and innovative use of the natural relief in the caves.
Also possible, considering the new concepts of time reckoning practised by Cro-Magnon, are abstract representations of the passage of time, such as spring plants in bloom, or pregnant bison that might represent summer.

Aside from pregnant women and other Goddess worship iconography, representations of people, “anthropomorphs,” are very few, and never show the accuracy or detail of the other animals.
Humans are represented in simple outlines without features, sometimes with “masks”, often without regard to proportion, being distorted and isolated.
At the 'Grottes des Enfants' in France are found four burials with red ocher, and associated with Aurignacian tools.
At Lascaux, France, are the famous caves of upper Paleolithic cave art, dated to 17 thousand years ago, and even older, in some cases, by many thousands of years!
The modern human types that appeared in the Levant were, however, somewhat different from Cro-Magnon.

Sub-Saharan Cro-Magnon Hybrid
They were the sub-Saharan type, less developed individuals than the true Cro-Magnon “superman” of Europe.
What seems to be the truth of the matter is simply that the modern humans of the Levant were “different” from the Cro-Magnon types that “appeared” in Europe.
Try as they would, there is simply was no way to prove that Cro-Magnon evolved in Africa or the Levant, and then moved to Europe.
But then, how to explain what happened in any reasonable terms ?
What the archaeological record seems to show is that in Europe, after millennia of almost no progress at all, even in the few areas where modern man has been found, suddenly human culture seems to take off like an explosion with the appearance of Cro-Magnon man.
Not only does culture explode, but also new ways of doing things, new styles and innovations that were utterly unknown in the period immediately preceding them, suddenly appear, only to disappear again like an outdated fad.

Prehistoric Fish Hooks
Prehistoric Sewing Needle
From Spain to the Urals, sites list the developments of sewing needles, barbed projectiles, fish-hooks, ropes, meat drying racks, temperature controlled hearths, and complex dwellings.
The most amazing part of all of it is the art.
Art suddenly springs onto the landscape, fully formed, with no period of gradual development; no signs of childish attempts preceding it.
A piece of ivory carved 32,000 years ago is as realistic as anything turned out by the most accomplished carver of the present day.
The Upper Paleolithic signals the most fundamental change in human behaviour that the archaeological record may ever reveal.

The Beauty of Aryan Perfection
© Zac Sawyer 2014
The only explanation for this tremendous change is that a new kind of human - the Aryan - appeared on the earth stage.
When we consider the difficulties of such an event, in terms of “evolution”, we find that this presents a huge difficulty in our understanding.
First of all, we still have the problem of a 60,000-year time lag between the appearance of the sub-Saharan modern type man who was on the scene with no “improvements” in his technology for that length of time.
If Cro-Magnon evolved in Africa, why isn't there a continuous record of incremental developments ?
By the same reasoning, if he evolved only after crossing the Mediterranean to Europe, why isn't there a continuous record of incremental developments ?
The most effective and popular way that science deals with this crisis is to ignore it, to deny it, or to seek to twist the facts to fit the theory.
But what seems to have happened is that the new Aryan 'culture' exploded in a lot of places at once: from Spain to the Ural mountains in Russia !
And in fact, the Middle East is the LAST place where art appears.
The earliest known Aurignacian sites are in the Balkans, and they are dated to around 43,000 years ago.
Three thousand years later, the Aurignacian craze is all over Europe.
We ought to note that the Neanderthals did not have art.
What’s more, there was essentially no change in their stone tools for 100,000 years.
Some people suggest that the impetus for culture was the sudden development of speech.
But that idea doesn't hold much water either.

Australian Aboriginal
If we were to look at some of the aboriginal societies of Australia and New Guinea, they are certainly Neanderthal-like in their stone tools.

The origin of Aboriginal peoples in Australia has been the subject of intense speculation since the nineteenth century. Genetic studies had shown the Aboriginal peoples to be related much more closely to each other than to any peoples outside Australia, but scholars had disagreed whether their closest kin outside Australia were certain South Asian groups or African groups. The latter would imply a migration pattern in which their ancestors passed through South Asia to Australia without intermingling genetically with other populations along the way. A 2009 genetic study found similarities among Indian archaic populations and Aboriginal people, indicating a Southern migration route, with expanding populations from Southeast Asia migrating to Indonesia and Australia.

But they think and communicate in languages that are as rich as ours, and they construct myths, stories and cosmologies with these languages.
They just don’t seem to be much interested in technology.

Shamanic Headress
Věstonice Venus
There is another very strange thing about this explosion of 'homo intellectualis technologicus': it seems to have sort of “lost its steam” around 12,000 years ago.
We have already noted the pottery making of the Jomon.
Even more startling is the fact that twenty-six thousand years ago the residents of Dolni Vestonice were firing ceramics in kilns.

Dolní Věstonice (often without diacritics as Dolni Vestonice) refers to an Upper Paleolithic archaeological site near the village of Dolní Věstonice, in Moravia, dating to approximately 26,000 BP, as supported by radiocarbon dating. The site is unique in that it has been a particularly abundant source of prehistoric artifacts (especially art) dating from the Gravettian period, which spanned roughly 27,000 to 20,000 B.C. In addition to the abundance of art, this site also includes carved representations of men, women, and animals, along with personal ornaments, human burials and enigmatic engravings.

Shelter of Mamoth Bones
In the standard teachings, the emergence of ceramics is linked to the functional use of pottery which supposedly did not appear until the agricultural revolution in the Neolithic period some 12,000 years after the kilns at Dolni were last used.
A thousand miles to the east of Dolni Vestonice, there is a cave called Bacho Kiro.
It is famous for containing the earliest known Aurignacian tool assemblages.
They are 43,000 years old.
This brings us to another curious thing about Neanderthal man: he never seemed to go anywhere.

Neanderthal Man
The Neanderthals are a supposedlyu extinct species of human in the genus Homo. Remains left by Neanderthals include bones and stone tools, which are found in Eurasia, from Western Europe to Central and Northern Asia. The species is named after Neandertal ("Neander Valley"), the location in Germany where it was first discovered. Neanderthals are classified by palaeontologists as the species 'Homo neanderthalensis'. The first humans with proto-Neanderthal traits are believed to have existed in Eurasia as early as 600,000–350,000 years ago. Genetic evidence suggests that Neanderthals contributed to the DNA of anatomically modern humans, probably through interbreeding between 80,000 and 28,000 years ago with a population of anatomically modern humans (Cro-Magnons).

He always made his tools out of what was locally available, and he never seemed to travel at all.
What was made where it was made, stayed there.
Nobody traded or shared among the Neanderthal groups.
But it seems that right from the beginning, Cro-Magnon man was travelling and sharing and exchanging not only goods, but technology.
If there was a better form of stone somewhere else, the word seemed to get around, and everybody had some of it.
Distinctive flints from southern Poland are found at Dolni Vestonice, a hundred miles to the south.
Slovakian radiolarite of red, yellow and olive is found a hundred miles to the east.
Later in the Upper Paleolithic period, the famous “chocolate flint” of southern Poland is found over a radius of two hundred and fifty miles.
Naturally, these rocks didn't walk around on their own.
Human legs carried them.
And that leads us to our next little problem with Cro-Magnon man: You see, his legs were too long.
One of the sacred laws of evolutionary biology is called “Allen’s Rule”.
This rule posits that legs, arms, ears, and other body extremities should be shorter in mammals that live in cold climates, and longer in mammals of the same period who live where it is hot. 
This is because having short arms and legs conserves heat.

Maasai Warriors
This is supposed to explain why Eskimos and Laplanders have short legs.
It also is supposed to explain why Bantu people are leaner, and the Maasai are extremely long and lean in their tropical open country.
The only people who seem to be mocking Allen’s rule are Cro-Magnon.
They just refused to adapt.
They all have much longer legs than they ought to.
Of course, this is pounced upon as proof that they came from Africa.
The only problem with this is that it is hard to imagine people from a warm climate migrating to a cold one by choice.
Then, on top of that, to remain long-limbed for over a thousand generations ?
Keep in mind that, during that time, the thermometer kept going down and, at the glacial maximum, 18,000 years ago, it was like the North Pole in northern Europe !
So how come they didn't adapt ?

By whatever means they arrived in Europe, we ought to take note of the fact that their presence there may be related to the fact that Europe and other nearby locations are literally blanketed with megaliths.
Indeed, it may be so that the megaliths came long after the appearance of Cro-Magnon man, but the connection ought not to be discarded without some consideration.

A megalith is a large stone that has been used to construct a structure or monument, either alone or together with other stones.The word "megalithic" describes structures made of such large stones, utilizing an interlocking system without the use of mortar or cement, as well as representing periods of prehistory characterised by such constructions. For later periods the term monolith, with an overlapping meaning, is more likely to be used. The word "megalith" comes from the Ancient Greek "μέγας" (megas) meaning "great" and "λίθος" (lithos) meaning "stone." Megalith also denotes an item consisting of rock(s) hewn in definite shapes for special purposes. It has been used to describe buildings built by people from many parts of the world living in many different periods. A variety of large stones are seen as megaliths, with the most widely known megaliths not being sepulchral. The construction of these structures took place mainly in the Neolithic (though earlier Mesolithic examples are known) and continued into the Chalcolithic and Bronze Age.

We have still another problem here, and it has to do with dating.

Deoxyribonucleic Acid
Analysing mitochondrial DNA data to reconstruct the demographic prehistory of Homo Sapiens reveals statistical evidence of explosive growth around 50,000 to 60,000 years ago.
Is there a connection between this DNA evidence and the appearance of Cro-Magnon man ?
If so, it would mean that the DNA is dated to twice the age that archaeology confirms.
Instead of assuming that the archaeological dates are correct, perhaps we ought to ask the question: could something be wrong with the dating ?
From a morphological point of view as well as judging by their industry and art, these highly evolved humans, who coexisted with Neanderthal man, represent a mutation so enormous and sudden as to be absurd in the context of evolutionary theory.
In the end, the fundamental problem still remains: a new kind of man appeared on the planet, seemingly from nowhere, and he was intelligent, artistic, and however he got here, he 'landed' in a lot of places simultaneously.
Are we suggesting that Cro-Magnon man was an alien ?
Not exactly.
What do all of these factors, taken together, suggest?
While Neanderthals appear to have evolved from less developed hominids, who were in turn evolved from primates, Cro-Magnons appear to have appeared from nowhere, in a form that was far more advanced than was evolution required.
The Cro-Magnons were undoubtedly unrelated to any evolutionary process, and were the predecessors of the Aryans.
