High Strange Human History

In my previous piece I looked at Thomas Kuhn’s paradigm shift theory and how I see it playing out in the contemporary fights over new understandings of human history. That piece included a look at debates over funding, politics, worldview clashes, and the like all come into play as…

Paradigm Shifts: Archaeology

“Things keep getting older.” —Graham Hancock Recently Ezekiel73 and I were discussing research into alternative views of human history—specifically I think we were discussing Graham Hancock’s latest book America Before—and he asked me why I thought there was such push back and emotional reactivity around ideas like…
