Neanderthal = Nephilim? Carbon 14 Dating?
To address the question we first need to examine the current facts and information available on Neanderthal man.
1. The archaeological history of Neanderthal finds :
Controversy surrounded the interpretation of these fossils. Initially a German Anatomist Rudolf Virchow examined the first discovery and concluded they were Homo sapien with rickets, caused by a deficiency of vitamin D. He considered that the flattened head was caused by repeated powerful blows (his examination was done pre Darwinism 1859 ).
When more finds came to light with what also appeared to be rickets, it was considered far too much of a coincidence and for lack of any other explanation they became relegated to a sub-human category. The French palaeontologist Marcellin Boule, concluded Neanderthals walked stooped forward which fitted in with the then new current thinking of Darwin's evolutionary theory of the origin of man ( these new assumptions were made post Darwinism 1859). For the next fifty years this created the popular image of an ape-man intermediary to man. Science thought it had the conclusive evidence it badly needed showing the missing stage between ape and man
Over one hundred years after first being found Boule's skeleton was re-examined in 1957 and it was now determined that Neanderthals walked upright and that the stooped posture suggested by Boule's skeleton was created by arthritis. More evidence from various caves and digs has shown that Neanderthals wielded tools and weapons, wore ornaments, had cultural and religious rites, ceremoniously burying their dead.
2. The Neanderthal Brain Size:
3. The Physical Features of Neanderthal:
Through examining the attachment points at which muscle binds to their bones it has been illustrated that their calves and biceps were extremely well developed as well as their pectoral chest and back muscles. A Neanderthal, because of this greater muscle mass, would weigh some ten kilos more than a modern human of equivalent height. They were regular Mr Universes.
4. Neanderthals possessed advanced skills:
6. Command and appreciation of Music:
Analysis of the sediment pollen concentrated in batches, implied that possible bunches of flowers had been placed on the grave. Closer examination of the pollen enabled scientists to identify many flowers that were present, all of which had some therapeutic properties. Were they part of an aromatic preparation, a kind of pot-pourri for the dead, or perfumed oils used in ointment preparations? If so an appreciation of the cosmetic appearance of flowers and perfumed fragrances existed, much the same as today with our embalming of the body with fragrances and the useof flowers at funerals. These flowers also testify to a warm climate and the abundant floral varieties availability at the time.
8. Neanderthal Burial tombs:
Evidence of Neanderthal skeletons buried in excavated graves in the ground suggests concern over the concepts of life and death. Value being placed on the dead person, funerals being a part of the social and psychological practices for dealing with death.
9. Neanderthals exercised abstract thinking concepts:
Unlike humans however, there is evidence presented by the scientists that the male/female role interplay as practised by humans in family activity was not carried out by Neanderthals. There is no evidence of couples or family oriented activities among Neanderthals such as taking meals together. This stands out in contrast to their closeness in so many other ways to humans.
10. Cruel Warriors:
11. Neanderthals lived along side with Humans:
If the dates are correct, modern type humans were around for a long time 'before' the Neanderthals appeared. After they did arrive on the scene "modern humans" appear to have coexisted with Neanderthals, sharing living areas together with them for some time, until they the Neanderthals went extinct. Although it appears that Neanderthals and modern humans were contemporary, inhabiting the same geographic areas and living areas Neanderthals did not interbreed with humans.
12. Scientists dating the extinction of the Neanderthal race:
There is evidence that both 'types' exchanged ideas, at least in how to make tools. As a result, the idea that Homo Neanderthalensis directly evolved into Homo sapiens now seems wildly improbable.
According to present scientific thinking the fossil record of Neanderthals abruptly ends about 30,000 to 35,000 years ago (see revised information on dating). After this time only Homo Sapiens dominate the scene. Researchers make the comment that "Why Neanderthals suddenly went extinct is a topic of much question we may never know the true reason."
Radiocarbon analysis puts the later Neanderthal sites as being c 32,500 years old. So some 32,000 years ago Neanderthals disappeared completely; they simply vanished for no clear reason.
Today Neanderthal is classified as totally human - Homo sapien (humankind). What happened to them? Some scientist theorise that this Homo sapien race, 'us humans', killed off the Neanderthal race. So did a physically and mental inferior race, humans exterminate a physically and mentally superior race Neanderthals?? Logic dictates that if one race extinguished the other, the Neanderthal race with their superior strength and mental abilities should have exterminated the inferior human race!
This, of course, is the ultimate question, one that continues to divide and baffle experts, one that I shall endeavour to provide rational explanations for in this paper, covering all the above criteria.
13. How science determines Neanderthal dating:
The scientists have created a theoretic "geological column chart" on which the theory of evolution is hung. The most recent chart, now used in most museums and universities is that drawn up by Van Eysinga in 1975. This chart covers some 600 million years dividing time into periods, ie. Cretaceous 65 to 140 million year ago; Jurassic 140 to 195 million years ago etc etc. This chart cannot be found in nature, it is theoretical, pieced together from various inter-related strata from all over the world. The vast time periods that have been allocated in the chart to facilitate the slow burying of fossils which formed the sedimentary rock layers cannot be proved or illustrated in any deposits being formed today it is all calculated and based on estimated guess work.
When a geologist has difficulty dating a rock stratum he requests the evolutionists opinion on the date of the fossils the rock contains, this then becomes its 'established' age date. When an evolutionist has difficulty dating a fossil he requests the geologists opinion on the age of the rock containing the fossil which then becomes its 'accepted' age date. A case of two theories being cross referenced in order to establish a so called fact??
14. Using the Carbon dating clock (C14):
So how has the important Carbon dating clock been set for dating Neanderthal man? We shall examine the evidence which shows that this C14 dating process as it is presently calibrated is only good for dating things back 2-3,000 years.
Scientists claim they have accurately calculated the age of Neanderthal bones by using this Radio Carbon C14 method. C14 is a type of carbon formed in the upper atmosphere when cosmic radiation particles bombard it. It forms radioactive carbon dioxide and from the atmosphere in minute quantities through photosynthesis passes into plants and animals and so is absorbed by all living things along the food chain. Natural carbon C12 is also present in all living things but in much greater quantity. The ratio of C12 to its minute cousin C14 is constant in all living things (today one C14 atom to one billion C12 atoms).
Scientists have accepted the assumption that C14 has been forming in the atmosphere constantly and continually for millions of years and that its build up which they calculate would have taken 30,000 years has reached its constant saturation point (the radiocarbon reservoir) and that as much C14 is now decaying as is being formed. * C14 absorbed into any living thing during its life time starts to decay once it dies. * Half its amount of C14 decays away to nitrogen gas in about 5,700 years. * Half of the remaining half decays away in a further 5,700 years and so on until immeasurably small. Once a plant or animal dies it stops taking in C14 and it starts to decay at the above rate while C12 stays the same.
Calibrations given to the C14 clock:
5,700yrs after death 50% of C14 remains = 150 c14 counts per second.
after 11,400yrs 25% of C14 remains = 75 C14 counts per second.
after 17,100yrs 12.5% of C14 remains = 37.5 C14 counts per sec.
after 22.800yrs 6.25% of C14 remains = 18.7 C14 counts per sec.
after 28,500yrs 3.12% of C14 remains = 9.8 C14 counts per sec.
after 34,200yrs 1.56% of C14 remains = 4.9 C14 counts per sec.
This dating test relies entirely on knowing exactly what the original ratio mix of C14 to C12 is or was. The clock is only accurate if the ratio is the same today as when the organism lived and remained constant during its life and after its death right up to the time of dating. If there had been less C14 in the atmosphere during its lifetime than today it would have absorbed less and the ratio would read much lower with a lower count per second giving it a much older false reading.
Evolutionists believe that there has been no change in the ratio of C14 to C12 for millions of years. William Libby and his co-workers while developing the radiocarbon dating method in the 1940s believed that the amount of C14 in the world could not possibly have varied during the time that mankind had been on the Earth simply because the Earth is of an immense age, some 4,600 million years old so they believed. Because of this great age it was assumed that the 30,000 years transition period required for the atmosphere to have built up its equilibrium value of C14 had already occurred and that the terrestrial radiocarbon reservoir had reached a steady state.
To test this assumption in Libbys theory he made measurements of both the rate of formation and the rate of decay of radiocarbon. He found to his surprise a considerable discrepancy in his measurements; that apparently, radiocarbon was being created in the atmosphere somewhere around 25% faster than it was becoming extinct. Since this result to him was inexplicable he put it down to experimental error.
Durring the 1960s chemists repeated Libbys experiments with refined techniques. They revealed that the discrepancy of Libbys was not experimental error but did exist. Richard Longenfelter found 'There is stong indication, despite the large errors that the present natural production rate exceeds the natural decay rate by as much as 25%'.
Other researchers have since confirmed this finding including Hans Suess,of the University of Southern California in the Journal of Geophysical Research and V R Switzer writing in Science.
Professor Melvin Cook Professor of Metallurgy at Utah University reviewed the data of Suess and Lingenfelter and reached the conclusion that the present rate of formation of carbon 14 is 18.4 atoms per gram per minute and the rate of decay 13.3 atoms per gram per minute, a ratio indicating that formation exceeds decay by some 38 per cent.
Cook went one step further by taking the latest measured figures on radiocarbon formation and decay. He calculated them back to the point at which there would have been zero radiocarbon. In so doing he is in effect using the radiocarbon technique to date the Earths own atmosphere. His resulting calculations showed that the atmosphere is only around 10,000 years old!
Many researchers have shown that the C14 in the atmosphere is 'still' increasing at between 25 to 38% more than is at present decaying. This indicates that the atmosphere because it has not yet reached saturation with C14 (saturation point is reached when the amount decaying is the same as that being formed) is either still building up and is therefore much younger than originally considered (ie Cooks 10,000 years) or at some earlier stage the atmosphere was inhibited from the present rate of cosmic particle bombardment and so is again still building up C14 to reach its saturation equilibrium point estimated to take some 30,000 years.
When we calculate back the equation to zero point of C14 in the atmosphere using this increasing 25-38% present 'greater build up of decay ratio' in the atmosphere we find we get a starting date for the C14 build up process in the atmosphere by cosmic ray bombardment of only c10,000 years ago. This would have the effect of drastically reducing the amount of C14 that was present in the atmosphere and thereby reduce the amount absorbed by living organisms during their life times. When reading these reduced amounts it would create an artificially, much older dying date when using the present wrongly calibrated C14 clock setting.
Scientists calculate Neanderthal disappeared some 32,500 years ago according to present dating by C14, when applying the erroneous assumption that C14 saturation has already been achieved. To arrive at their date of 32,500 years ago the C14 reading in the Neanderthal bones would have been c 2% of original ratio, achieved by a C14 clock count reading of c 6 counts per second.
If we now rework this date using the short 10,000 year period of C14 build up and the 2% of original ratio ( 6, counts per second ) used in the evolutionists original calculation. Then a Neanderthal who had died say 4,400 years ago would have absorbed C14 from the atmosphere that had only been building up for 5,600 years. Then at death the Neanderthal would only have absorbed 18.67% of the scientists anticipated full 100% saturation amount of C14.
If absorption into the atmosphere started 10,000 years ago then 4,400 years ago absorption would have been in operation for 5,600 years, if saturation takes 30,000 years then 5,600 years would be 18.67% of 30,000 years. This would give a false calculation for the year of his death showing erroneously that he had been dead for 14,286 years at the time he died.
It is rediculous to think that the atmosphere of the Earth is only 10,000 years old as the science evidence suggests. Agreed, but the truth can often more incredable than fiction. There is now new evidence that we shall be considering that although the atmosphere is old the absorption of C14 has possibly only been going on for the last 4,400 years; that the C14 penetration and absorption into our atmosphere was inhibited prior to this time and that when the protection ended the Earth's climate also changed radically.
The Nephilim Race:
Can the criteria uncovered about Neanderthals be applied to the Nephilim race? To do so it would need to explain the following list of 16 characteristics associated with Neanderthals.
1. Had brains as large if not larger than humans.
1. Ancient manuscript information on the Nephilim race:
The ancient manuscripts refer to a time 4,500 years ago, before the ancient Egyptian civilisation, when highly intelligent life forces from outside our universe were aware that the human race was beginning to multiply on this planet. They turned their attention to earth with the intention of controlling and colonising it. The human race at that time had a possible population of some 35 million * (see foot note 1) Click here to go to foot note 1. For certain calculated reasons they took this opportunity to move in on the Human estate with the objective of usurping it and bringing it under their control and domination.
Having an extremely high level of scientific knowledge, coming from a race millions of years older than the fairly new human race, they understood precisely how the human DNA functioned in the human make up. Engineering the transformation of their own makeup to assimilate the human form they took on physical bodies fashioned on their knowledge of the human DNA structure and cellular make up. Probably emphasising and enhancing in the process physical power and size, making themselves extremely impressive specimens * (see foot note 2 for manuscript referances). Click here to go to foot note 2.
There is no manuscript information as to how many went through this metamorphic change but possibly some thousands participated. They took pleasure in exercising control over the natural human population, cohabiting with the women, selecting the best for themselves without restriction. Probably meeting very little objection from husbands or other human males due to their impressive physical dominance.
Once these women had been impregnated and inseminated with their engineered semen they became pregnant giving birth to children who were a hybrid half-caste race known as Nephilim. It is very likely that these hybrid individuals were sterile and did not breed.
2. Hybrid Sterility:
Hybrids often have what is called hybrid vigour; they tend to be larger, faster growing, and healthier than their parents. Thus, mules are bred for their strength, superior to that of either parent. Ornamental plants are bred for their larger flowers; nearly all corn and tomatoes grown today are hybrids that bear much larger fruit than their parental stock.
3. Population ratios of the two races.:
This possible 6 million strong Nephilim race would form a veritable army by which their fathers could hold tight control on the 135 million human population. This period of human history became so filled with violence and bloodshed the entire human population became subject to an environment of terror.
4. Are the Neanderthal one and the same as the Nephilim?
The new evidence examined supports a correction of the calibration of C14 dating clock to include the carbon 14 build up readings, this would bring both Nephilim and Neanderthals into the same time frame some 4,400 years ago.
5. Cause of extermination of Neanderthal/Nephilim race:
6. An Atmospheric protection layer:
This mechanism would have had the effect of dissipating the thermal heat rays of the sun more evenly over the entire surface of the earth. Protecting the equator regions from overheating as experienced today and dispersing the heat out toward the polar regions, making for a more even temperate climate throughout the entire earth's surface. This would explain the evidence found on the earth of temperate vegetation and animals found living so close to the polar regions and why warm climate animals living in these arctic areas were suddenly destroyed and preserved in ice. Also why the desert areas of the earth today show evidence that during the earlier chapters of mans history there were abundant water supplies and lush vegetation throughout the year, the very same temperate climate that the Neanderthal lived in.
Could this also explain the dilemma some archaeologists have when they find evidence that the Great Sphinx of Egypt shows signs of exposure to rainfall weathering over a long period. For the last 4,000 years there has been very little if any rainfall in Egypt; has the earth's climate changed radically by the removal of this water suspension canopy?
This protective outer layer surrounding the earth's atmosphere would have dissipated the warmth around the earth similar to the effect of a green house roof. Just as the panes of glass block the suns harmful radiation rays entering the green house (ie you will never get a suntan sitting inside a glass green house on a sunny day) so the water vapour screening layer above the atmosphere would have protected the earth from these cosmic harmful C14 forming rays. Without the canopy we are unprotected today from the constant bombardment of these rays and so we are subject to the effects of premature ageing. Science is now linking the bombardment of these radiation rays to cell and DNA breakdown as causing part of human ageing process (see further related material at the end of this paper "chapter 8" on Telomeres).
This water vapour screen would have protected life from the harmful exposure to direct cosmic radiation rays from the sun, preventing the infiltration of harmful radio carbon C14. As already discussed this would account for the atmosphere still building up its levels of C14 not yet having reached its saturation point, estimated by some scientists to take approximately 30,000 years. If this figure is correct then from a starting point for the build up of C14 some 5,000 years ago there is yet a further 25,000 years to go before saturation is reached.
This would have the effect of causing all carbon dating done so far to be thrown out of the window as the clock on which all these dates have been calculated has been set at a wrong starting time through assuming that saturation in the atmosphere was reached millions of years ago, whereas this evidence dictates that it still has not been accomplished.
7. What caused the removal of this benign protective layer?
At a pre determined date the suspended layer was broken up, the manuscripts indicate according to chronological calculations this to have been almost 4,400 years ago* (see further related material at the end of this paper, R/P 32). The falling of the deluge waters came from the breaking-up of this suspended water canopy. Possibly the balancing centrifugal, magnetic and gravitational forces holding it in position wereadjusted in some way.
Scientists acknowledge that the earth's magnetic force fields have at certain times reversed themselves. Surveys of palaemagnetism, the study of lava rocks which contain iron particles,show when these rocks were cooling and solidifying from a liquid state the iron particles would line up in line with the direction of the earth's magnetic field leaving behind a record of the direction of the magnetic field at the time. These surveys have revealed that the earth's magnetic field was reversed on more than one occasion. Did a reversing of the magnetic field provide the trigger mechanism setting off a controlled reaction that lead to pulling down of the water vapour layer?
The billions upon billions of tons of water vapour could have been drawn down mainly at the poles by gravitational and centrafugal forces, condensing vapour into water and water into ice accompanied by high velocity winds, almost overnight causing dramatic changes to the earth's former temperate climate.
The build up of great pressures of water and ice falling onto the polar regions would have forced it in glacier form to spread rapidly out over the surfaces of the globe toward the equators, gouging out valleys under the rapid movement of mountains of ice being bulldozed out under massive back pressure. Everything in their paths would have been destroyed. With the continual falling of this water and ice for 40 days* (see foot note 4) at both poles with more and more ice building up behind its mass pressure quickly built up until its sheer weight cracked the earth's mantle buckling it and breaking it up into the 'tectonic plate' continental land masses we now have. These great continental land mass plates, crushed against one another forcing up mountain ranges while the weight of the massive ice glaciers along with billions of tons of additional water forcing down great surface depressions allowing the water to settle into these new ocean basins that we have today.Click here to go to foot note 4.
8. The evidence fits the theory:
It certainly could have provided the energy to create the tremendous forces needed to tear apart and crack up the earth's crust. It could also have provided the on going energy to drive these cracked continental plates apart in some places, over riding neighbouring plates in others compressing and forcing plate edges against one another with such force as to drive up and form the world's great mountain ranges that then come into existence.
The hypothesis that the crust of the earth could have been cracked up into the continental plates by a thickening of the earth's polar ice caps was put forward by Hapgood and Campbell in 1958, in their publication "Earth's Shifting Crust".
Professor Melvin Cook took this theory and modelled it. He started with a situation where the earth's mantel was more or less fairly uniformly covered with crust from pole to pole. By creating a build up of ice at the poles he finally cracked the crust, the fracture lines determined by the pressures being exerted from the opposing polar forces. These pressures on the earth's crust can be likened to the effect on the shell of a hard boiled egg being squeezed in a vice from both ends. When the earth's crust fractured it would have snapped rapidly and violently and like the pieces of the egg shell, quickly separated in some place, but in others forced up against one another.
Professor Cook believes the ancient Arctic ice cap a mass of some 100 million tons disappeared suddenly about 10,000 years ago. To explain this he says it would be necessary for the ice to have dissipated catastrophically. He concludes the evidence proves the earth's crust was rapidly forced up into the great mountain ranges at about the same time, mass of ice and snow released forming the present oceans.
Much evidence supports the above; that the earth not so long ago contained much less water on its surface and had far more dry land:
1. Vast masses of terrestrial animal remains have been found thousands of meters deep in the oceans, evidence that the land was once above sea level.
2. Marine animal remains including whale skeletons bear evidence of sudden extinction having been found hundreds of meters above sea level, evidence of some phenomena causing the water to suddenly and dramatically raise above the original sea level.
3. Thousands of flat top islands over 1,000 meters high have been charted at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. They are encrusted with coral revealing that they at one time must have been at or near the surface.
4. The island of Great Britain was once linked to Europe by a connecting plateau now 20 meters below sea level, it was once all dry land, remains of forests, animal and human bones have all been found on this plateau, evidence of a previously lower sea level.
5. The oceans and seas at present cover some 70% of the earth's surface. It has been calculated that if 20% of the earth's water was evaporated off some 50% more dry land would appear, with the re-emergence above sea level of much of the land that at one time was originally above the water. A suspended water vapour layer as described could have comfortably taken up this 20% amount of water .
Does the evidence support linking the Neanderthals to the Nephilim?
The criteria associated with Neanderthals can equally be applied to the Nephilim situation.
1a. Neanderthals had brains as large if not larger than humans.
2a. Neanderthals were well muscled with highly developed physiques.
3a. Neanderthals had distinctive characteristics (flattened cranium, heavy ridge above large eye sockets)
4a. Neanderthals appeared after humans had been around for a long time.
5a. Neanderthals and Humans coexisted, sharing living space for a period.
6a. Neanderthals were skilled in tool and weapon making.
7a. Neanderthal were a battle scarred warrior race.
8a. Neanderthals were skilled in language, spoken and written.
9a. Neanderthals were cultured in music and musical instrument making.
10a. Neanderthals had general culture similar but not the same as humans.
11a. Neanderthal practised burial of the dead and religious rituals.
12a. Neanderthal possibly prossessed medical skills, practicing apothecary and, aromatherapy.
13a. Neanderthals lived in warm temperate climates.
14a. Neanderthal revealed possible hybrid 'vigour' characteristics.
15a. Neanderthal coexisting with humans 4,400 years ago according to corrected C14 dating.
16a. Neanderthals were exterminated suddenly, humans continued on.
The writer does not claim this paper to be free of errors but a stimulus to others with greater skills to examine further the information on the early activities of the human race that has been under our noses for thousands of years generally ignored and forgotten. Some scientists under the weight of built up evidence are beginning to do this, others are entrenching themselves ever deeper in their old theories. The cry fromthem of heresy seems to be getting louder in proportion to the evidence. Some sciences unfortunately have taken their received knowledge and moulded it into a pseudo scientific philosophy not unlike the religions have done with theirs.
Truth should lead science and not the other way around. All disciplines of science particularly the ones built on the 100 year old theory of evolution should re-examine the current evidence for what it tells us and not what they would have it say by discarding the evidence that does not fit with their pre conceived theories. Maybe then many more of the present mysteries of 'science' will not be so mysterious after all but find rational explanations. A mystery remains so until it gets a rational fact fitting explanation, it then ceases to be a mystery unless of course the explanation is rejected because it contradicts some previously accepted theory, then the mystery continues as a self created one.
True facts form a concrete foundation on which to advance onto further revelations. Truth should always be the target no matter what the circumstances. The 'science of evolution' has been masquerading under the claim of 'proven truth' while in fact it is anything but proven, most of the reliable evidence pointing in the opposite direction to their evolution theories. Exposure is never met with welcoming arms and is often a bitter pill to swallow, but once swallowed the health of the science improves considerably.

The population on the earth 4,500 years ago may be calculated to 35 million. The chronology of the human race places the first breeding couple c 6,000 years ago. Using conservative population increase demographics of doubling every 60 years then over a period of 1,500 years the population would have increased from two to 35 million. By 4,380 years ago it would have increased to 135 million.
