The Scientists Responsible for “The Out Of Africa Theory” Admit They Were Wrong, Are We Even Listening?

Are you willing to live life challenging those concepts and theories you were taught in school and further on.?
Keep thinking, keep challenging and updating you thinking. Never forget that a huge amount of what you learned as “facts” gets adjusted and edited and even disproven with new research.
The more years you have on your age clock the more you are challenged to keep renewing those hard wired beliefs you cling to.
Keep thinking. This blog post is a good one to start with.


The Scientists Responsible for “The Out Of Africa Theory” Admit They Were Wrong, Are We Even Listening?

They were wrong and had the integrity to admit that mistake and tidy up the bad research and errors made.

“Australian scientists say analysis of the oldest DNA ever taken from skeletal remains challenges the theory that all modern humans can trace their recent ancestry to Africa.

What our evidence shows is that the situation is much more complicated than any of these supporters of Out of Africa would have imagined

Dr Alan Thorne, Australian National University

The study is based on the 60,000-year-old so-called Mungo Man skeleton, which was unearthed in New South Wales in 1974, and nine other anatomically modern Australian individuals who lived 8-15,000 years ago.”

Australian historian Greg Jefferys explains that, “The whole ‘Out of Africa’ myth has its roots in the mainstream academic campaign in the 1990′s…

Book Review: ‘Flowers in the Dust’, by Jenny Mace, published by Shady Tree, Australia, 2017

Jerry Coleby-Williams

In the ancient landscapes of Queensland’s desert uplands grow many curious and attractive plants. Dame Quentin Bryce Ad, CVO, remembers the desert uplands for its ‘vivid red soils, its astonishing vegetation, its lakes, its slopes and its plains.

For many of us it’s easy to miss these tough, resilient wildflowers when they’re in bloom – the uplands cover a huge amount of land and plants growing in this semi-arid region respond quickly to good rainfall. In 2016, that country was baked dry, but on Australia Day 2017, its lakes were full, pasture was lush and the wildflowers were brilliant. It was high season for botanical artist Jenny Mace.

The Blue Banded Bee – The Farmer’s Friend

My Wild Australia

I was really excited to discover some of these attractive looking bees on a cassia shrub near the house recently. I walked past it one day and I could hear an intermittent buzzing sound. On closer inspection, I found these incredible blue banded bees among the blooms.

It’s a very striking looking insect, you’d definitely notice it, with its iridescent blue stripes across its black abdomen and being 12mm in size.

Since I had never seen one of these bees before (except for other people’s photos), I did some research on the internet and came up with some interesting information about them.

The blue banded bee, amegilla cingulata, is a native bee to Australia. It is found everywhere in the country with the exception of Northern Territory and Tasmania.

The blue banded bee is a solitary bee, and they are not aggressive although they can sting.

It’s also easy…
