Did Man Really Land on the Moon?
John F. Kennedys call for a manned moon landing was regarded as the clarion call that ushered in NASAs golden age. The final result was that from 1969 through 1972 there were six lunar landings that proved once and for all the dominance of the U.S. over Russia in the space race. But was the U.S. moon program really as successful as NASA has claimed?
Is Bigfoot Descended from Homo Erectus?
If so, we may have more in common with this elusive creature than you might think.
In the forests of the world, hidden in the shadows and mist, lurks a hairy giant who strides on two legs. On occasion, he ventures out to leave footprints or frighten a backpacker. According to cryptozoologists, he is a relic of a prehistoric species whom people around the world have nicknamed Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, Yowie, or Skunk Ape, a species that diverged from humans millions of years ago. While this theory has become the darling of cryptozoologists, evidence contradicts this assumption. Rather, to truly understand the origins of Bigfootand humanityone must explore the strange world of hairy hominids.
The Mysterious Disappearance of the Neanderthals
For almost 200,000 years, the Neanderthals ruled an empire that stretched from Portugal to western Siberia. Then between 25,000 and 30,000 years ago, they were replaced by Homo Sapiens. Why did they disappear and where did they go? Did they interbreed with the Cro-Magnons to produce contemporary humanity or were they an evolutionary dead end, wiped out by our ancestors in a prehistoric genocide? As scholars continue to study these cavemen, we have learned that many of our earlier ideas about them were grossly misstaken.
