What we're about

After 30 years of research I started this, hopefully small, group for comradery, as I finish my second book. Reasons for you to join...

You have a general knowledge of or at least a keen interest in some aspect of ancient history. You can get along well with others and believe in leaving the world a better place. Advancements in the study of some or all aspects of ancient history; from within the normal academic community, might interest you. You believe empirical knowledge should change over time when new and better information comes to light.

You understand, as Copernicus and Galileo did, it only takes one person to tell you, when you are wrong: it takes a thousand to tell you that you are wrong, when you are right. This prerequisite occurred with Galileo and Copernicus when they corrected astronomy; as it must with others on the right track. You understand seldom are problems solved from the same fixed mindsets that created them.

It interests you, in comradery, to find out if I deserve to be successful in advancing diffusionist theory (see: Barry Fell) in ancient history, to the extent Galileo advanced Copernican theory in astronomy.

Though you may have great respect for feelings, you attempt to guide your life and learning through logical deduction and deductive reasoning based on the normal scientific community. From this perspective you value your ability to make up your own mind.

This is not a forum to espouse the status quo in ancient history, basically unchanged from before the dark ages. I am sure you can find a different history groups for that. Other fields of science were corrected after the dark ages: not ancient history.

This group seeks to change no one, welcoming the return of courteous polite people who, after a little bit of study, through analytical thinking and deductive reasoning are of a like mind; a like mind when it comes to advancing and correcting human knowledge of ancient history.

Ancient History Comes Alive

Aperture Coffee Bar

Bring yourself and your pleasant curiosity: nothing else is required. Remember to buy something from our host as this is a coffee shop. The purpose of this meeting is foremost, a pleasant evening of comradery. In the fictional detective world, Sherlock Holmes, Columbo, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple solve crimes by uniting into a whole, many elements of knowledge hitherto apparently unconnected. This meetup group centers around applying these same methodologies to solve mysteries in ancient history; with an added advantage of a fascinating archaeological discovery, in the 1990s, that started the ball rolling. Solved mysteries at the centre of this group’s attention, drastically alter our understanding of the distant past and man’s early understanding of self. That discovery in the 1990s led to a series of connected, further discoveries that followed one another. One might say, each skeleton of discovery was attached to the heels of the last. This meetup group uses principles of detective work to advance our knowledge of ancient history. While studying the accepted location of the most prolific mined copper during the copper and bronze ages, Northern Ontario man made the series of connected discoveries. These discoveries are put forward in this group. Up until now, understanding early history was concealed in a handful of different, apparently unconnected recorded secure stories many thousands of years old: secure stories from different parts of the world waiting for someone like the elusive Sherlock Holmes or Agatha Christie. Those stories are found in 1) archaeological discoveries, 2) the funerary and monument texts of ancient Egypt, 3) the Iliad of the Greek, 4) the Argonautica of the Greek, 5) the Torah of the Hebrew, (only as a historical document) 6) the Edda of the Norse, 7) the Vita of the Indus Valley cultures and 8) passed down names of people and places accompanied with oral and written knowledge from natives of, and visitors to, copper and bronze age North America. Combined, the above 8 stories paint a detailed, different and new picture of our ancient history. The hitherto unconnected detail brought together by new discovery overlaps, not by dozens, but rather by the many hundreds of connections. A new, clear and wonderful story of our ancient history has taken shape. The words “paradigm shift,” are often misused: however, come out and see if this Meetup is indeed an opportunity to be in on the onset of a real “paradigm shift” on a global scale. From the discoveries it soon became clear that Herodotus, (500 BC) known as the father of ancient history, was in many ways a failed interpreter who gathered information from 2 of the above 8 stories. Herodotus wrote at a time when the source of 99% pure, surface, shoreline, copper of the Keweenaw Peninsula and Isle Royal of the Great Lakes Basin, along with the tin mines of Cornwall, were kept secrets, for obvious reasons. The normal academic has documented secrecy surrounding the location of the Cornwall tin mines even up to the latter parts of the Roman Empire. It could be that Herodotus did not so much fail, as to deliberately conceal, we may never know. At any rate the new understanding of history points to the failures or concealments by Herodotus as he admits to in his own writings. As an example, for his map Herodotus sets thousands of year-old names for icebergs, to rock island’s in the Mediterranean, saying, “the Greeks said they once floated.” At the Meetup group all stories that contribute to understanding ancient history are respected. Change is considered an individual choice. We seek to force change on no one, only to welcome those that understand, with new information empirical knowledge is supposed to change over time. Jason O’Donoghue During most of the meeting the floor will be open for interaction in the way of questions. Hopefully a good time will be had by all.
