• Learn the real story of our Paleolithic ancestors, a story about intelligent and innovative people, a story unlike that which is promoted by mainstream science

  • Explore and regain confidence in your own ability to think for yourself as a broader range of evidence becomes available to you

  • Join a community not afraid to challenge the status quo. Question with confidence any paradigm promoted as "scientific" that depends upon withholding conflicting evidence from the public in order to appear unchallenged.

From our Readers

PCN is the most amazing and most important publishing and I greatly look forward to every issue. Keep up the wonderful work!!!”

“You are following the world class parameter.”

“Masterly work as always. The whole edition is great!!”

“I am confident that the Pleistocene Coalition has such a vast wealth of information that anyone who tries to argue against it only demonstrates an obstinate disdain for the truth …Whatever you do, DON’T stop doing it!”

“You have established a ‘corridor’ between University Archaeology and ‘Ancient Aliens,’ neither of which is correct. By its nature, University Archaeologists must adhere to their circa early 1900’s origin and cling to the funding pole around which it is tethered. They do not have the resources, facilities, knowledge, or desire to risk their university positions on new discoveries, with a few exceptions. ... In the meantime, you and your staff are to be congratulated for adding real scientific data to real world knowledge.”

“The last issue of PCN is again a masterpiece in layout and content—congratulations for you and your coworkers!”

“Fantastic issue!”

"THANK YOU for PC. …This knowledge should belong to us all, and not be held down and perverted under the brooding pinions of anti-scientists and anti-thinkers. …I found PC through reading about Virginia Steen-Macintyre. …I can’t believe that your publications go back to 2009 and I’m only just hearing about this now!”

“Great job belling the cat. …Thematically, a seamless monolithic issue.”

“You folks are draining the swamp. The aim of the Pleistocene Coalition is in action.”

“Your statement is superb. I’ve forwarded it to skeptical friends influenced by the views of the anthro establishment. Keep up the good work. It is much appreciated.”

“This is exactly the sort of thing that starts an academic revolution and attacks the suppression of knowledge. High marks to PC!”

“The last PCN issue arrived well, thank you very much! We again understand what it means to get all the information together and put it into such an interesting publication.”

“Congratulations for another excellent PCN issue. …With all the best wishes to you and your wonderful team.”

"All of you are complimented and respected for your research, integrity, and courage.”

“As always, the PCN Newsletter is of the only top-notch sources of archaeological sanity out there.”

“Thank you John and other editors; Looks like another fascinating read! In appreciation …down under.”

“Very impressive newsletter.”

“I must commend you and the other editors for one of the finest Journals that tells it like it is found in nature.”

“Thank you very much for your very impressive Pleistocene Coalition News.”

“I do not know where you all get the energy and the drive from, but good on you.”

“Dear John and all, I...appreciate all that you do. I thank you for it greatly…I greatly appreciate your efforts from my own journal’s viewpoint.”

“I will…indeed let my colleagues in the different centers I have been working in know about the work you are doing.”

“All issue looks great, as always!”

“Thanks, John, and thanks for keeping this going for all these years! I've saved all of them.”

“Dear John, Virginia, Tom, and Rick...if you feel anything work related to academics, you are always welcome.”

Your website is a huge…treasure we are overjoyed to be privileged to have access to.”

“Your site continues to always impress me.”

“Its pretty incredible what you have all put together.”

“All articles are fascinating. The Nebra Disc, Paiute petroglyph and the aboriginal rendering of the Pleiades knocks the socks off me! This entire issue is also very provocative and makes the point of the Coalition quite well throughout all the articles. Anthropology is useless unless it is based on truth.”

“I admire the tenacity and fearlessness of the authors in this issue and their determination to keep deconstructing the traditional dogma.”

“Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could open a school dedicated to teaching the enormously important work you folks are doing? If the subjects are important to our species they should be taught to our youth to give them some sense of history and our place in it… or at the very least made accessible to them. …Since the standard timeline has been choreographed ad nauseam, and the non-standard covered up systematically by the Smithsonian, I wonder if there’s another way we could do it and make it easier for you as well as more widely accepted. …The MOST important aspect of what you’re doing is that you are truth seekers and your methodologies are priceless. ...a school worth attending.”

“Perhaps with an open, public forum such as PC, honest and innovative academics will now have a light to guide their way. Please do...keep me on your mailing list.”

“I have intuition this has potential to cause a stir in the greater world.”

“Congratulations for the fantastic achievement! I am impressed by your energy and results.”

“An awesome issue.”

“I have read every page with interest. … It is something that will start to erode the stubborn entrenchment of the archeological establishment.”

“Do any of your contributors have videos of their work? ... Would they/do they have coursework set up for students? I believe that Public Education is killing itself and will be replaced by free market solutions. … Would there be any interest in creating courses in what your contributors are finding?”

“Congratulations on 50 issues of PCN. What an Achievement! Since it now appears that mainstream academics are going to have no choice but to accept what you’ve been saying all along (as more finds push back the record), it’s great to know there is already documentation that you all knew this was the case long ago. I just hope at some point it comes out that they refused to give your ideas serious consideration and stood in their way. …History has a way of sorting it all out in the end, although vindication sometimes comes too late to be enjoyed by the vindicated. I can only imagine how much work it has taken to produce 50 wonderfully informative issues. I for one, have learned a lot more about prehistory. …THANK YOU! I will continue to spread the word about PCN at every opportunity.”

“Dear John and Team, thank you very much for this wonderful volume.”

“I would quote from Margaret Mead: ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.’ [And] from Steve Jobs: ‘The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that do.’”
–Medical field

“As usual, EXCELLENT.”

“Please accept my congratulations for your faith and fight.”
–Art professor

PCN of the best anthro newsletters out there, definitely the most lively and exciting, not only content but its format, and with an exploding niche given all the incredible things being found. ...This one is more like a celebration of data.”

“Compliments to all of you for your efforts and integrity. Per the motto at one of my Alma Maters, Fight on!”

“GREAT issue. Thank you.”

“What a page-turner Issue 47 is! Superb job!”

“I use this opportunity to congratulate you again for the great work you are doing. My cousin from fascinated by your courageous work and uses PC to teach his children the hidden [pre]history of the world.”

“John; Your ‘scattered thoughts’ are SPOT-ON! I see the ripples are getting bigger! I thank you and the team (and contributors) for making the ‘dogma’ lay down! I sincerely appreciate each PCN’s arrival. –Down under.”

“Over many years I have followed the work of some of your members hoping to see it enlighten the paleoarchaeological establishment as the old passed... Because our quarry and efforts have always been private I have lived in between the various Politically Correct groups of the times and so identify with your members challenges and appreciate the wisdom you all put forth.”

“It just goes to show you that holding the Establishment’s feet to the fire sometimes pays off.”

“Had my first read of Issue 45 this evening. My compliments to you all!”

“I was so happy to see the new issue and the piece on Valsequillo!”
–Professional author

“You folks at the Pleistocene Coalition are great. Keep up the good work.”

“Congratulations for your continuous effort to reveal the truth! Thank you!”

“Thank you for the wonderful and important work you are doing. I am a keen reader and very much looking forward to the next issue.–Kind regards from Germany.”

“I read and re-read the #42 issue; it is absolutely fantastic!!”

“I want to thank you very much for the wonderful gift: the #40 PCN.”

“Awaiting your latest. Keep up your extraordinary work.”

“I wish you all the best for 2016 … you and your marvelous team.”

“I have all the praise and respect for you and the team. They leave no stone unturned to bring about and maintain credibility of PCN, individually and of an excellent team spirit.”

“John, Virginia, Tom, and David, Thank you, as always, for your hard work, it is much appreciated!”

“A colleague [who reads PCN says] it’s like a bag of peanuts, he starts with intention to read one article, then the next, and the next, cannot stop until he reads everything.”

“Many thanks for sending me the latest edition of PCN, which I am already enjoying reading. Your publication has been of immense help to me in conducting my own research.”

“I can’ t believe you’ve published 38 issues—truly amazing! At a glance, the new issue looks really interesting (as usual), can’t wait to read it.”

“When doing significant work you are NEVER behind.”

“Thank you for all the hard work bringing PC News to us! ... I really enjoy and appreciate reading PCN; and I typically read the articles several times so as to fully understand what the author is saying.”

“Wow! …Your site is amazing! It has really helped me sleep. I’ve been going a little crazy thinking I was seeing things.”

“All the articles are superb! … I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. ...The Pleistocene Coalition represents a constructive means for getting to the new paradigm by its exposition of evidence the public would never see otherwise… and its open-ended point of view.”

“[We] wanted to thank you and the eds. … They seem to be getting better all the time. I had no idea about the Cincinnatian Ordovician Formation being such a singularly important place of study.… breakthrough publication!”

“I am happy and extremely grateful to you and your entire team for your efforts and dedication. The articles I have had the opportunity of reading are fascinating and open new perspectives. I have introduced my… your work and contrasted some information they are presently being given in school as factually indisputable with some of the facts (not mentioned in school) that your newsletter provides. It was quite an experience for them and has prompted them to ask a lot more questions than before, not least of their own teachers, some of whom have discovered they had to do some more research themselves. I wish you and your team all the success and sincerely hope that PCN will become more visible to more readers and not just in scientific circles.”

“Hey—that embedded sound-file idea in the Leakey article is very cool!”

“I already knew that you and your entire team are volunteers which is another reason for me to be so thankful for PCN. Once again all our thanks for your and your team's great work and we are looking forward to more PCN issues. Wishing you all the best.”

“Congratulations to all for ending this year with this great latest issue. ... PC obviously strikes a chord and serves as inspiration to a lot of like-minded people.”

“Congratulations to all the team! Waiting for #42.”

“Every issue keeps getting better.”

“Congratulations for the successful publication. I can understand your and your team’s hard work. Thanking you with respected regards.”

“Thank you for your continued efforts in publishing the very informative Web Journal the Pleistocene Coalition News.”

“Fantastic! Thank you very, very much!!!”

“I am attracted to what you guys are doing because of the mentality of courage that looking at history without fear necessitates.”

“After recently reading Dullum, Lynch and Urbaniak's articles, I have to say they are absolutely splendid!”

“Just found your site and love it. …Thank you for your site and making me feel I’m not insane.”

“If it ever comes out that there has been a conspiracy to keep us in the dark about history, then the whole works falls apart—all the way up to the closed doors in D.C. and the storage buildings of the Smithsonian.”

“Dear John, Virginia, Tom, David as well as all your PCN team of volunteers, My family and I wanted to thank you again for your efforts and for the great articles you have been providing us. PCN has been a great source of educational information and a great help to me personally, as I am trying to provide my small sons with accurate, scientific information sadly too often lacking in the materials their school uses. Knowledge of human history is primordially important as it shapes our world outlook and having the PCN resources available has been very helpful and welcome in developing their capacity for critical thinking, not to mention being great reading and learning for my wife and I and our circle of friends with whom I have been sharing your newsletter. We hope you will keep producing these articles which are both interesting and necessary and I have no doubt that your circle of readers will keep expanding. With all our thanks we wish you all the best while we look forward to the next PCN issue!”

“An absolutely magnificent issue!”

“Best PCN yet! Keep up the hard focus.”

“Another wonderful issue, as per usual.”

“Congratulations for the new PC issue. … I am near PC’s team in the battle against the lie.”

“[I am] delighted with the new PCN issue.”

“I admire your battle against the official paradigm and I am on your side.”

“I found the new PCN issue; was overjoyed.”

“Issue 35 is a jaw dropper! Congratulations!”

A note about our readership: Apart from anonymous readers, the readers of PCN who have told us their professions include researchers and professors, PhD students, and authors in psychology, neuroscience, linguistics (and other anthropology), biology (including MD’s), microbiology, geology, paleontology (incl. Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology–published), mathematics professors, physics, astronomy, paleoastronomy, philosophy, the arts (including the performance arts from music, dance and theater to film and installation art) as well as art history. Our readership also includes many engineers, a few NASA associates, those in politics, law, and others.

An important observation: We sometimes receive messages from those who have spent entire careers in mainstream science— fieldwork, teaching, and publishing in those contexts—but who said they were ‘afraid’ or, at the very least, reluctant to investigate conflicting evidence in anthropology, etc., until “after” they retired. That shows there is a trait in modern science that punishes objectivity and critical thinking when it comes to human prehistory. True science encourages those traits as ideals.

“I should write back much more regularly to these sterling editions that arrive in my e-mail! Please accept my kudos and congrats on another spectacular, enlightening, and mind-bending issue of PCN. Your efforts, and the organization’s, are so necessary to bringing awareness to the science community. Especially when, as the commentary astutely points out, religious views and political paradigms would block peoples’ minds from considering something objectively. Carl Sagan’s commentary on human reaction is so spot on. It helps relieve the chafing frustration, gives me a better handle on understanding why there is so much resistance in the ‘mainstreamers’ to accept evidence when it stares them in the face. Would that such evidence had actual teeth to bite them and make them wake up to reality! ... Keep up the superb quality of publication.”

“I subscribe to this online magazine and it is a fascinating production with some AMAZING history-busting evidence from the world of paleontology.”

“Thank you very much again for sending PCN—the last issue is marvelous.”

“I continue to be very impressed with the Pleistocene Coalition! It is refreshing to have such open minded scientists that contribute to the site.”

“Re: Fifth Anniversary Issue, Pleistocene Coalition News … Bravo for this exceptional issue!”

“Congratulations on reaching this landmark—it’s a great achievement! History will remember you for it—in addition to the current dialogue; you, Virginia, Tom, and David have created a public record which will be evermore important as time progresses.”

“Congratulations! Fifth Anniversary Issue, Pleistocene Coalition News. ... You do a great job!”

“Just another great issue!! I am astounded at your dedication along with Virginia, and of course others, in producing such a great piece of work month in and month out.”

“You all have done a marvelous job on Issue 29 of the Pleistocene Coalition publication. Each new issue shows improved skills and significant content. The weight of evidence is becoming overwhelming.”

“Probably the best journal out there for cutting edge research.”

Pleistocene Coalition News. I can understand what a huge commitment this is.”

“You have developed a more than first class publication and resource.”

“What [an] incredible job you and the others are doing. ... PCN is leaving behind a legacy that will probably shape what comes along in this century. Great stuff. And thanks so much for all you have done and are doing, and this goes for everyone involved. ... awesome.”

“What a fantastic issue! Congratulations to all.”

“The entire issue is fascinating. … Looking forward to more issues of PCN hammering away at ignorance!!”

“I am in full agreement with you on our (Canada too) extremely narrow education system. … This seems to even extend into the universities, so even at this age our young people are not able to at least hear the various views that extend to so many areas of science. This includes the subject area as covered by your very fine publication. ... extremely valuable contribution... We have so very little to be enthused about if we are only subject to the mainstream dogma so very prevalent in science today.”

“I admire very much your work and courage … PC is a very important contribution to contemporary knowledge.”

“You are doing a heroic job. … I have saved every copy.”

“Even some people from Australia’s mainstream ... ‘behind the scenes’... have often expressed admiration for the PCN profile, for your courage, tenacity and willingness to tackle sensitive and controversial topics, exposing dishonesty in mainstream science.”

“Wonderfully done, as have been the earlier Issues.”

“This was a great year for the PCN, sending ripples across the world.”

“Thank you for the PCN last issue and congratulations for the new remarkable contribution to prehistory.”

“A pleasure to read all the well edited and vividly illustrated papers!”

“You guys are my heroes!”

“Congratulations of your being able to continue to your most valuable publication, the Pleistocene News. The Pleistocene News serves the purpose of countering the huge amount of dogma and rhetoric that surround so many scientific subject areas.”

“You are living history—keep it going.”

“The PCN editors formulated an unparalleled webzine-profile, the importance of which will only be fully appreciated by future generations—with the benefit of hindsight.”

“Thanking you so much for this valuable journal.”

“Keep up the hard fought fight—you are making and creating history.”

“I have over the past number of months become even more impressed…I believe that people like yourself…and the other volunteers at the Pleistocene Coalition deserve our heartfelt thanks.”

“I love your newsletter. ... refreshing; not the politicized bunk we are fed continuously!”

“My thanks and wishes… I really appreciate all the effort you and your coworkers put into publishing PCN in this perfect way.”

“Quite amazing, impressive.”

“Thanks for your esteemed devotion for discipline.”

“You might not remember who I am: a young archaeologist who thinks for himself. I now study as a postgraduate student at Oxford...There is a young, independent generation coming of age now. We will change this world, for the better. Keep your hopes up friends. This battle is far from over. Take care, and keep up the good work.”

“Well stated and appreciated! Many of your readers and supporters, including me, appreciate your positions and what you are accomplishing...calling attention to paradigm shortfalls and vested interest deflections. You fill a key niche in science, so keep up the good, honesty-driven, pure ‘love of science’ work as best you can under the intense pressures that are obviously involved.”

“Objectively and critically inspiring.”

“The articles are fascinating. …You are truly in a David and Goliath situation. However… I know more and more people are reading your newsletters and spreading the word.”
-High School Teacher

“An excellent edition of the PC read from cover to cover. I really don't know how you do it, but the articles that keep coming are fresh, thought-provoking and, in some cases, brilliant.”

“Your newsletter material is better than GSA Today.”

“Fascinating website and newsletter.”

“There are some extraordinarily brilliant articles in all the Pleistocene Coalition Newsletters...and each issue deserves to be read from cover to cover.”

“WOW...this is an amazing issue. ...academics need to realize that the public is and will be informed.”

“I absolutely loved the latest issue of PCN—really solid points of view and so well expressed.”

“Excellent and most interesting! Acknowledgement for the editors!”

“I am indeed impressed by the high quality of the publication! Well done!”

“A very very impressive issue. Should make anybody start to question and rethink their understanding of ancient man. A lot to digest in just one issue.”

“Quite a wonderful and needed cause you've undertaken.”

“A most interesting and fascinating piece of work. …Thank you and your coworkers very much for all the effort you again had to put into this publication!”

“Congratulations! A great issue indeed!”

“Congratulations for the 2015 issue! I wish you a fruitful year and look forward to reading your interesting articles.”

“Congratulations and kudos for another excellent issue that continues a tradition of excellence PCN has established. ...My deep appreciation to the editors and contributors to this latest issue.”

“There is a hidden history of early man in the Americas that pushes the boundaries of human habitation way back. ... The attached newsletter of the Pleistocene Coalition is always fascinating for me to read. …if you enjoy it there is a free subscription available if you want your own edition sent to you.”
-Reader to a colleague and cc'd to PCN

“Really enjoyed this one!”

“Congratulations to you and the Team!”

“Kindly continue sending.”

“Congratulations! Fifth Anniversary Issue, Pleistocene Coalition News. ... You do a great job!”

“I really liked the last issue of PCN, the best yet!!”

“It appears to me that we are entering a time of enlightenment. … The Common Core blindly agreed to by state governments is opening people’s eyes to what was always there. People pick and choose what they want the history and science to be. ...With Common Core people are finally looking at what is listed as common and determining that they don’t want it.”

“Congratulations for the last PC issue! Very good indeed!”

“Thank you for tremendous effort of scientific journal publication.”

“Very well done—many thanks and admiration for you and your co-editors.”

“I am thankful for your concerted effort in providing update and important information on Pleistocene prehistory.”

“Thought provoking and challenging… I feel the Gallery idea is great.”

“Just a quick note to thank you for the latest edition of Pleistocene Coalition News which I have read with great interest. Please keep up the good work! All the best for 2013!”

“Congratulations on what you are achieving.”

“Thank you very much for your comprehensive and interesting letter showing how PCN developed...demonstrating which efforts you and your coworkers put into this most useful and important work...We as the readers (and authors) are glad to have such a neutral platform which is not bound on wrong suggestions or restrictions. Keep on! Best wishes and warm regards to all of you!”

“Was finally able to view the new Pleistocene Gallery. What a delight!”

“A fascinating production.”

“Many thanks...I do appreciate the excellent magazine and I will certainly check out the gallery. The title of your email had me worried for a second. I initially read it as meaning there would be no more Pleistocene Coalition News. It would have been sorely missed! Yours in appreciation.”

“I was saddened and concerned for Virginia and her wellbeing while going through such a difficult time…and completely forgot to congratulate the editors on the great new PC issue and...on starting such an intriguing project with the gallery.”

“Fascinating! How do I join so that I can share in your TRUTH seeking? Sincere thanks in advance.”

"I would like to be put on your mailing list. I have had a lifetime interest in this subject."

"Thanks for your great website. I shall have to find time to work through all the excellent material... Meanwhile, congratulations and if I can join or assist, please let me know.”

“To whom it may concern, I have been frantically trying to find a link to join the Pleistocene Coalition.”

- Thomas Jefferson, 1789 -



Researchers with evidence challenging the standard view of early man
as promoted by mainstream science

Challenging the Myth
¯¯¯ Palaeolithic geometry, cartography, and linguistics

If you believe that early peoples such as Homo erectus and Neanderthals were less intelligent than we are today, then you are placing far too much trust in the objectivity
of mainstream science and especially the evolutionary community. Unlike in other fields of science, and due to the less-rigorous nature and weaknesses of its tenets, this community routinely blocks from publication any evidence that challenges its core paradigms resulting in public perceptions that are not accurate. On this page (The Graphics of Bilzingsleben, in lieu of the forthcoming page), you can learn the story of how empirical and unequivocal geometric data challenging a paradigm and presented in a mainstream forum was held back from publication by the European, Australian, and U.S. scientific communities. Learn how this data (held back since 2006) demonstrates beyond any doubt that there has been no change in human cognitive ability for at least 400,000 years, challenging the veracity of the evolutionary paradigm in a way never anticipated and leaving the only strategic response from the faith-based Darwin community that of low, though standard evolutionary community, behaviors such as name-calling (see exposé below) or simply ignoring or censoring the evidence. (John Feliks)

This section documents well-acknowledged work suppressed 
by the journals Current Anthropology (U.S.) and Rock Art Research (Australia) and by competitive editors and reviewers with well-known 'conflicts of interest'. It is one more example revealing the dark underbelly of anthropology publication. The problem for this particular paper occurred before the field was exposed for enabling reviewers with conflicts of interest to determine the publication outcome of competitors' papers. It was often done 'anonymously' enabling reviewers to see new work submitted in trust to quickly alter their own work for publication while the original submitters' work was held back. The Issue #61 installment documents a few of the passionate defenses of 'The Impact of Fossils' paper by eminent scientists decrying the paper's censorship and revealing awareness of anti-science behaviors by the journals listed (in a list including others such as the Journal of Human Evolution). The defenses came from leading experts in neurology, psychology, neuropsychology, anthropology (including archaeology), sociology, geology, mathematics and engineering.

¯¯¯ People have been in the New World for 250,000 years

If you are absolutely convinced that people first arrived in the Americas a mere 15-30 thousand years ago, this is because you have been spoon-fed by an institution that will not allow you to see conflicting data. When scientific institutions withhold empirical data in order to promote a single belief system they can manipulate a trusting public into believing whatever paradigm they wish to impose upon them. Those who trust the institutions but do not investigate the evidence themselves are easily prodded along.
On this website you can view actual archaeological data straight from a tephrochronologist (volcanic ash expert, Ph.D). Re-claim your ability to think for yourself. Go beyond what you read on blogs or watch on standard science programs and be prepared to question what you have long been taught regarding the peopling of the Americas. (This website is under construction. However, much of the data on the archaeological sites can be viewed temporarily on the Valsequillo and Hueyatlaco forums of the website. Click on the link or the picture for Virginia Steen-McIntyre's Pleistocene Coalition page and quick information on Valsequillo and Hueyatlaco.) Steen-McIntyre is a founding member of the Pleistocene Coalition and editor and advisor for Pleistocene Coalition News.

Click for Virginia Steen-McIntyre's Pleistocene Coalition page. ¯¯¯ Art and religion have been around since the beginning

The website of James B. Harrod, Ph.D. Do you have a picture of early peoples such as Homo erectus or Neanderthals as just barely intelligent enough to walk around or throw a few spears? Is your picture one in which early peoples spend their entire lives in little more than a desperate struggle for survival without stories
or philosophies? On this website you can learn through images of actual artifacts how the archaeological evidence for early art, myth and religion is both immense and vast. If you are prepared to think in 3D and enter into the spiritual and philosophical minds of early people, then it is time to look beyond the mundane interpretations of artifacts so long promoted by mainstream science and realize with confidence what you probably already intuitively knew - that human beings have always thought and felt deeply about their world. Harrod is a founding member of the Pleistocene Coalition.

VanLandingham ¯¯¯ Mainstream science runs when its precepts are challenged

Scientists absorbed in the long-unquestioned paradigm that Homo erectus never made it to the New World may tell you to steer clear of "fringe" ideas. They often do whatever it takes to make certain that you, as a consumer of science, are left to know of only one perspective in regards how American archaeological sites are dated and when early peoples first appeared in the Americas. Often, they have provided dates for artifacts and even human remains specially-tailored to fit the preconceived notion that only modern Homo sapiens made it to the New World. See where this is heading? Rest assured, these scientists are now running scared in the face of hard-fast data. Here you can read the actual reports
from one of the world's leading diatomists, Ph.D (reports these scientists would rather you didn't have access to) demonstrating beyond any reasonable doubt that archaic people were in the Americas 80-400 thousand years ago. VanLandingham is a founding member of the Pleistoecne Coalition.

The First American ¯¯¯ Science will sometimes suppress what it doesn't understand

This website is based on the comprehensive volume by archaeologist, Christopher Hardaker, detailing the entire story of how a whole generation of science readers have been deliberately steered away from data that might confuse them regarding the aggressively-promoted paradigm of no-early-peoples in the Americas. Are you, as an objective thinker, concerned by those attempting to do your thinking for you? You should be. Hardaker's page also features updates on an American archaeological site deemed invalid by promoters of the above-mentioned paradigm though one taken seriously by famed anthropologist Louis Leakey. All in all, it is the data that matter. Rather than allowing yourself to be prodded along, take a look at the data and think for yourself. Keep in mind that if one piece of data (e.g., VanLandingham diatoms) establishes the reality of even a single early site, then the entire New World frontier will change in an instant. Hardaker is a founding member of the Pleistoecne Coalition.

Researchers with evidence challenging the standard view of early man as promoted by mainstream science

Paleo-camera ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ United States

The website of Matt Gatton. "Harsh climates in the Paleolithic era forced humans and their predecessors to adopt heat-retaining dwelling strategies, including the use of hide tents in cave mouths, under rock overhangs, and in the open. Small random holes in these hide tents would have coincidentally and occasionally formed camera obscuras, projecting moving images inside the dwelling spaces. These ghostly images carried with them spiritual, philosophical, and aesthetic implications."

Archives of Cultural Exchanges

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ United States

This website specializes in unexpected links between widely-separated cultures and civilizations. It offers a large database of evidence for early contact between cultures of the Old World and the New World long before the voyages of Columbus and others in the European "Age of Exploration." Its aim extends into prehistory.

Archaeological evidence for earlier contact than promoted by the mainstream science and historical communities includes appearance of new food crops, animals, calendars, religious practices, medical procedures, genetics, etc. The Archives' main focus is on early interaction between cultures located on opposite sides of the Atlantic or Pacific Oceans; i.e. between the Eastern Hemisphere and the Americas.

The website's moderators are Carl L. Johannessen, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus at the University of Oregon, Dept. of Geography; and John L. Sorenson, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus at Brigham Young University, Dept. of Anthropology. They are co-authors of the ground-breaking book,
World trade and biological exchanges before 1492 (2009). This comprehensive and rigorous volume was rejected for publication by mainstream presses and university presses alike. The blocking of evidence that does not adhere to mainstream views is a common problem for researchers who are challenging scientific dogma and is one of the primary reasons that the Pleistocene Coalition was formed.  

Johannessen's story in brief:
In the 1960's,
Dr. Johanessen began research into the domestication of plants and animals in Central America followed by investigations in the Himalayan region of Asia which were funded by grants from the National Science Foundation. Noticing the similarity of crops such as corn, beans, and squash which had not been observed before, Johannessen began to postulate that contact between cultures on opposite sides of the globe began long before the eras commonly taught. It was at this point that the grant money came to a halt. Johannessen suggests this happened because of mainstream allegiance to the idea of no early contact between the hemispheres and that sculptures depicting corn in East Indian temples, for example, that Johannessen provided as evidence could not possibly depict corn (See images at right and develop your own opinion). Despite these setbacks, like others in the Coalition, Johannessen and Sorenson (author of Pre-Columbian contact with the Americas across the oceans) continue to move forward with their research developing a compelling and expanding case for early contacts extending farther and farther back in time.

Groups on the Edge ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ International

In the past several years not only have researchers battling suppression questioned the objectivity behind mainstream science and anthropology but so has an increasingly Internet-savvy general public. Online researchers are less inclined to simply trust science once they realize that a single ideology rather than scientific objectivity has been driving interpretations of evidence in areas as important as human origins or human prehistory. Prior to the Internet, the peer review system in anthropology so effectively blocked conflicting data from publication that the general public had no way of knowing that conflicting data even existed; it believed that mainstream science was giving them a true and balanced interpretation of all known evidence. However, the Internet has changed everything; more people are privy to the fact that dissenting evidence—awareness of which is an absolutely crucial part of critical thinking and objectivity—is being withheld in anthropology while selected evidence is being presented as unchallenged and in the context of what is increasingly being recognized as a belief system or worldview. As a response, more and more people have joined together to form discussion groups to weigh out the evidence for themselves, express doubts, and otherwise openly challenge proclemations in anthropology presented as science that would never pass as science in any other field. This page will contain links to various such groups. It should make no difference to readers whether these groups are motivated by science alone or contain members whose concerns include religions or philosophies. What matters, and what skeptics should pay attention to, is that these groups have mounting empirical reasons to doubt the veracity and objectivity of what is presented to them as fact by mainstream science. In one way or another, groups of this nature support a premise of the Pleistocene Coalition that mainstream scientific behaviors such as suppression of conflicting data need to be fought, that is, unless we are all content to become puppets of an international belief system presented as science yet which is somehow immune to the standard scientific requirement of testability in real time. IMPORTANT NOTE: Most of these groups feature regular contributions by mainstream scientists though these contributors, for obvious reasons, often write under the safety of anonimity via avatar or nicknames. It is likely that many of these scholars will come out publicly when the paradigm changes and the evidence begins to be weighed in an equitable manner.

Lutz Fiedler ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Germany

State archaeologist, Hesse, Germany. Fiedler is the discoverer of the early Stone Age (Acheulian) figurine known as the "Venus of Tan-Tan" which is regarded as one of the earliest examples of sculpture in archaeology. It was found
during excavations on the north bank of the River Draa in Morocco right next to Acheulian handaxes between undisturbed layers dated 300,000-500,000 years old. Fiedler is not averse to questioning the tenets of mainstream archaeology and has even gone so far as to question the emphasis and importance typically placed upon symbolism as a sign of advanced human behavior.

Decoding Design ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ United States

Maggie Macnab is an international award-winning graphic designer, author and educator with a career spanning several decades. Her work has received top honors throughout her career and has been recognized by leading design publications such as Communication Arts, Print, and Step-by-Step, as well as by organizations such as the Art Directors Club of New York and AIGA (American Institute of Graphics Arts). Macnab has taught design theory in the Digital Arts Program at the University of New Mexico since 1997 and for the Santa Fe University of Art and Design and is also past president of the Communication Artists of New Mexico. Apart from speaking at conferences, she leads workshops on creativity. Macnab is the author of two leading design books, Decoding Design: Understanding and Using Symbols in Visual Communication (2008) - which has won awards and accolades - and, Design by Nature: Using Universal Forms and Principals in Design (2012), each of which have been translated into Chinese, Korean and Spanish. Macnab is also a lecturer in the popular TEDx program (ideas worth spreading).

Macnab's research revolves around creative problem-solving and links between artistic expression and nature. She traces cultural iconography back to origins in the natural world. Macnab's perspective and scientific approach to the roots of design were influenced by a unique childhood background. Her mother was an architect with John Gaw Meem. Macnab's father, a poet and writing teacher at the Institute of American Indian Arts, encouraged her interest in nature and creativity early on by giving her a microscope and reading her science fiction shorts as bedtime stories. He also taught her how to observe and draw nature, taking Macnab camping by horseback in the high deserts of New Mexico including places such as Chaco Canyon, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Puye Cliffs, and the Santa Fe River on Upper Canyon Road, as well as Big Bend National Park in Texas.

Macnab  left school at sixteen and is for the most part self taught.

Amazon reviews:

"I would rank this book as the top design book of the decade." -on Decoding Design

"[Macnab] weaves together a persuasive narrative to support the premise that 'The appreciation of beauty is universal' and that in almost all instances, human design ingenuity can be traced to 'natural' roots." -on Design by Nature

"This book will appeal to anyone interested in understanding our species' deep connections to nature." -on Design by Nature

The Cosmic Tusk

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ United States

Subtitle: Abrupt climate change induced by comets and asteroids during human history
. This is the website and blog of George Howard, BA, Political Science, co-author of the Firestone et al paper, Evidence for an extraterrestrial impact 12,900 years ago that contributed to the megafaunal extinctions and the Younger Dryas cooling, PNAS, 2007. The full paper is available free online.

Howard is an expert on the phenomena known as Carolina Bays including field work and analysis and has also produced several posters on the topic. (Carolina Bays are large oval impressions ranging in size from one to several thousand acres which are found in the Atlantic seaboard states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, and Florida. There are as many as 500,000 Carolina Bays which, for the most part, are all aligned in exactly the same direction.) Howard's blog investigates the Bays and other impact-related phenomena (both proven and unproven) with a focus on the proposed Younger Dryas Event. Howard's background also includes six years as a political staffer in the U.S. Senate as well as being actively involved in the restoration of natural habitats.

New DVDs: Marshall Payn/Bill Cote ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ United States

Valsequillo: An Archaeological Enigma

Length: 2 hours 20 minutes including the director’s new 30-minute final section

Description: This is what we call the ‘Academic Version.’ It tells the story with more emphasis on the science and more detail given to the tests and scientific explanations and arguments.

New Evidence of Early Man: SUPPRESSED

Length: 84 minutes plus
a BONUS Disc (disc 2) which contains over 1 1/2 hours of all new material including interviews with Virginia Steen-McIntyre, Hal Malde, Mike Waters, Neil Steede and Marshall Payn, as well as photos, charts and illustrations.
Description: This is what we call the ‘Broadcast Version.’ It simplifies the science and tells the story in a way best suited for the non-scientific viewer. It's a bit more sensational than the Academic Version.

The DVDs can be ordered direct from BC Video (below). See Bill Cote's update in Issue #19 of Pleistocene Coalition News for details.

Marshall Payn is a mechanical engineering graduate from M.I.T., and 30-year veteran of archaeological research. Among many other accomplishments and pursuits, Payn is the owner of 23 businesses; an author, songwriter, deep-sea fishing champion, and pilot as well as an award-winning documentary film producer with films on a variety of topics including Hueyatlaco, alternative medicine, and early Christianity.

Bill Cote is a documentary filmmaker producing popular television specials such as the Emmy-winning film, The Mystery of the Sphinx (1993) and The Mysterious Origins of Man (1996), each hosted by Charlton Heston. The latter film was the first time the public at large had heard about Hueyatlaco and the story of Virginia Steen-McIntyre (although these had been introduced to the academic community in Michael Cremo’s and Richard Thompson’s controversial book, Forbidden Archeology, 1993). In addition to a 2007 update of The Mystery of the Sphinx, Cote's most recent films on the topic of early man are Valsequillo: An Archaeological Enigma and New Evidence of Early Man: SUPPRESSED.

The Lost Way of Stones ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ United States

The Lost Way of Stones is one of the website projects of Joel Weishaus. Weishaus is a writer, literary artist and sculptor, art and literary critic, and editor, as well as Visiting Faculty in Portland State University's Department of English; Portland, Oregon. Over the past thirty years, Weishaus has published books, poems, and essays, along with exhibiting his literary texts in museums. He also reviews poetry and poetics for several newspapers and journals. His online work is hosted by three universities.

Among many articles and books, Weishaus wrote the Introduction and Notes for Thomas Merton's, Woods, Shore, Desert.
Weishaus' most recent book, The Healing Spirit of Haiku, was co-authored with Jungian psychiatrist, David H. Rosen, McMillan Professor of Analytical Psychology and Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Science at Texas A&M University.

Here are a few quotations from The Lost Way of Stones which Weishaus uses as a portal to muse on Palaeolithic peoples and times:

"The Lost Way of Stones is built around indigenous rock art found in Southern California, including that of the Chumash Indians who lived mainly along the Santa Barbara Channel; and art made by Shoshonean peoples that is located on the Naval Air Weapons Station, near Death Valley, CA., where, contrasting human creativity with its destructive shadow, it is 'one of the most spectacular concentrations of rock art sites in North America.'"

"My interest in Amerindian rock art began during a residency at the University of New Mexico's Center for Southwest Research. Cataloging slides of rock art of American Southwest also whet my interest in Aurignacian cave art."

"Archaeologist Paul Bahn writes that 'it was the process of journeying to a location and leaving an image there which counted, rather than the image itself, its appearance, degree of completeness, or durability.' However, I would argue that journey and images are entangled in an uncanny web of continuity."

"Christine Finn wrote that 'a poetic interpretation of archaeology—and by that I mean one that moves into the metaphysical to consider the essence of a "thing"—should be included in the armory of interpretative tools available to the archaeologist.'"

"No matter where we are or when, 'a whole mythology is deposited in our language,' recalling our past as present in the depths of a collective imagination."

Luann Udell ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ United States

Luann Udell is a nationally-exhibited artist and writer with a B.A. in art history and an M.A. in education. Her article in Pleistocene Coalition News #9 tells the intriguing story of how she went from the young dream of being an artist to art history and academia and then back to the dream of being an artist again only this time it struck the chord after being inspired by slide projections of Lascaux Cave.

"A girl can dream, and so I did. If there was no place in art history for me, then I would invent one. I'd start with Lascaux, move on to ancient Egypt and then maybe hit the Bayeux tapestry. But it didn't happen that way. I began with the Lascaux Cave ... and never left. I had no idea I was entering a whole new life, one filled with imagination, story telling and passion." -Stories from the cave

Tom Baldwin ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ United States

Tom Baldwin is an award-winning author, educator, and amateur archaeologist living in Utah. He has also worked as a successful newspaper columnist. Baldwin has been actively involved with the Friends of Calico (maintaining the controversial Early Man Site in Barstow, California) since the early days when famed anthropologist Louis Leakey was the site's excavation Director. Calico is the only site in the Western Hemisphere which was excavated by Leakey.

Baldwin's recent book, The Evening and the Morning, is an entertaining fictional story based on the true story of Calico Early Man Site. Along with Ice Age adventure stretching from Central Asia to North America, the book touches on many levels including Native American mysticism and a "critical look at the scientific establishment." The setting takes place in two time periods simultaneously, the modern day and a much earlier age 185,000 years ago.

Along with Virginia Steen-McIntyre and David Campbell, Baldwin is one of the core editors of Pleistocene Coalition News.

Raghubir S. Thakur
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ India

Captain Raghubir S. Thakur (June 1948 - November 2020), MA History, was an ex-Army officer (Gazetted) with his last role being Consultant for Security and Land Management for the Archaeological Survey of India under the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Government of India. His responsibilities included protecting National Government-listed Heritage properties including World Heritage monuments. The Security Cell was formulated and created by Thakur’s persuasion of every Director General of the ASI for over 19 years. Over the years, Thakur gained a broad knowledge of rock art sites in the region being first to discover and document rock art in Delhi. Thakur participated in 10 international archaeological and environmental conferences (1990–2012) presenting papers in India, Sweden, and Japan. He was Organizing Sec. of the Asian Conference on Air Pollution (1999). Thakur’s most recent presentation was at the Joint Annual Conference of IAS, ISPQS, and IHCS (2015). Among others, Thakur is associated with the discovery of an Upper Paleolithic site near Ellora Caves (1992), megalithic menhirs Western Rajasthan (1997), cup-marks Siroli Dongari/Chhattisgarh (2007), and nearly 100 cup-mark/petroglyph sites Delhi-Aravallis mountain range (2013–15).

Dragos Gheorghiu ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Romania

Dragos Gheorghiu is an experimental archaeologist, artist, pyro-technics expert, and professor of cultural anthropology and prehistoric art at National University of Arts, Bucharest, Romania. For many years, Gheorghiu has attempted to tackle the difficult subject of understanding the spirituality of prehistoric people through experimental archaeology. His work involves such universal and timeless experiences as human perceptions of landscape and the shared experience of fire, to name only two.

Gheorghiu's Timemaps project on YouTube involves creating unadorned film representations of prehistoric or later early technologies by discovering little known living communities and giving them a presence on the Internet. The films are done in a style that gives a sense of real time in daily life without the embellishments or editing styles of other types of filmmaking. The project also involves creating virtual museums for these communities to help reconstruct their past and in the hopes that local traditions can be preserved. Photo at upper right is a still from, "Vertical Loom," one of the films conceived by Gheorghiu and filmed by Adrian Serbanescu. Performance and design of the loom and costume is by Alexandra Rusu. The loom propmaker is Ion Dimcea.

Gheorghiu’s "Landart Transformations" is a project at Monte Velho, Portugal; photo by Radu Damian at lower right. It is a visual representation of a prehistoric hill fort or castro. The idea is in part to help observers from a distance get an actual sense of place in three dimensions.

Gheorghiu is the author, editor, and co-editor of many articles and books on archaic technologies as well as the signs and symbols of material culture. He has done pioneering research in the field of cognitive archaeology, including prehistoric spirituality, not only by recreating artifacts and using ancient techniques, but also by re-enacting the use of space, water and fire as in ancient times. All of these experimental archaeology programs are attempts to reproduce perceptions common to all people and to help create a more direct connection to the past.

Ray Urbaniak
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ United States

Ray Urbaniak is an engineer by education and profession; however, he is an artist and passionate amateur archeologist at heart with many years of systematic field research on Native American rock art, especially as related to archaeoastronomy, equinoxes and solstices in Utah. He has noted that standard archaeological studies commonly record details of material culture but overlook the sometimes incredible celestial archeological evidence.

Urbaniak has also played a major role in documenting and raising concerns for the accelerating vandalism, destruction and theft of Native American rock art. He has brought state representatives to rock art sites with the hope of at least placing labels as protected nearby what he calls “sacred art” sites as a deterrent to vandalism. Urbaniak’s book, Anasazi of Southwest Utah: The Dance of Light and Shadow (2006), is a collection of color photographs of previously unrecorded Anasazi or Ancestral Pueblo solstice markers, equinox and cross-quarter markers in SW Utah including both petroglyph and horizon markers as well as the first general guidelines for identifying solstice and equinox markers. His rock art photographs include clear descriptionswith many photographs being time-sequenced as events occurred along with compass, angular orientations, and other information.

Fiction by Ray Urbaniak overview:


Jeffrey Goodman, PhD ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ United States

Jeffrey Goodman, PhD, is an archaeologist, geologist, and professional (Geological) mining engineer. He has a professional degree in Geological Engineering from Colorado School of Mines, an MA in anthropology from the University of Arizona, an MBA from Columbia University Graduate School of Business, and a PhD in anthropology from California Coast University. For nearly 10 years, Goodman was accredited by the former Society of Professional Archaeologists (SOPA) 1978–1987.

In the summer of 1979, Goodman's archaeological team directed by the late Dr. Alan Bryan, Professor of Archaeology, University of Alberta, discovered a flat stone with straight lines engraved on both sides. It was brought up from Pleistocene deposits at a depth of 23 feet at Goodman's archaeological site in the mountains north of Flagstaff, Arizona. Goodman had been excavating the site intermittently since 1973.

The complete decades-long story of this remarkable artifact, including the dating methods applied and never-before-published photographs of the excavation and participants, can be found in the following articles in Pleistocene Coalition News.

Jan Willem van der Drift¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Netherlands

Van der Drift (stone tool production expert)

Jan Willem van der Drift, a veterinarian in the Netherlands by trade, is a colleague of the late Chris Hardaker, archaeologist and founding member of the Pleistocene Coalition. He is a Dutch lithics expert in stone tool production with over 40 years field experience. Van der Drift is a prolific author in both English and Dutch publishing in such as Notae Praehistoricae, Archeologie, APAN/Extern (publication of Aktieve Praktijk Archeologie Nederland), etc. He is also a producer of educational films demonstrating bipolar techniques of stone tool production and its association with various human cultures of all periods beginning with the Paleolithic. Van der Drift’s work is also referenced in Paul Douglas Campbell’s book, The Universal Tool Kit (2013), a highly-rated overview of stone tool production techniques. Van der Drift is presently Chairman of APAN or Active Practitioners of Archaeology in the Netherlands (Aktieve Praktijk Archeologie Nederland). The organization was started due to the cumulative knowledge and field experience of its members consistently observing inaccurate interpretations of physical evidence regarding the nature of early humans by the mainstream archaeology community. The group was given extra motivation along these lines by Chris Hardaker who, in correspondence with van der Drift related the treatment of Calico Early Man Site in California (excavated by famed anthropologist Dr. Louis Leakey) by the mainstream archaeological establishment. Van der Drift lives in the small town of Cadier en Keer in the province of Lumborg, Netherlands.
