Over the years there has often been speculation as to whether or not there is, yet unknown life, inside our planet.
These speculations have been made at times alongside the “hollow earth” theory. Others have been made considering the abundant new discoveries of ancient underground cities, many of which have not yet been satisfactorily explained as to who lived in them.
Some speculations have been that at one time, perhaps during the great flood, some people moved underground to seek protection from the natural disasters that occur on the surface of the planet.
Others have speculated that perhaps aliens visited our planet, to mine Gold. During the time of their visit, they used early humans to work the mines and perhaps some of these humans remained underground.
Another theory, of course is that the aliens themselves are living underground.
Now it would appear that Paleoanthropologists in Kenya have found some skulls in the sandstone of Koobi Fora, badlands situated near Lake Turkana.
These skulls indicate that the evolution of man was not as simple as had previously been thought. The structure and dating of these skulls would indicate that a species, not the same as but similar to Homo Sapiens, existed at the same time.
This could mean that there were at least two branches in our family tree.
As we have seen with other species, when two sub species exist, in order for both to successfully survive, they have to find separate sources of food or perhaps different habitat.
If this were the case, then is it possible that one sub species chose to move underground?
- We Are Not Alone
Why is it that when ever a cave is found that seems to have unexplained objects, Governments always shroud them in secrecy or deny their existence. What is it that they wish to hide? Has a species evolved underground?
If we are to assume that there is a yet unknown species living underground, which evidence is starting to indicate, then is this species in fact a distant cousin of ours?
I do not however, speculate idly.
In my Hub: We Are Not Alone. I tell of the workers in Cairo, whilst digging to build a subway, found a tunnel. This tunnel seemed to have people walking normally, however these people had tails.
Obviously the workers reported what they had seen but were told to immediately seal the dig and say no more on the incident.
I doubt that from the skulls alone, that the Paleoanthropologists could determine if this newly found sub species had tails.
Whilst we look to the future and search for signs of life in outer space, we must remember that there are still too many unanswered questions about our own planet and of our own history.
- Underground Civilizations: No Myth
For many years stories of ancient civilizations living underground was thought a mere myth. Now underground cities are being excavated, is there truth to the myths?
- Outer Space Beneath Our Feet
Many very large caves have been found. There must be many more yet undiscovered. Is it possible that a whole civilization could be living underground?
- The Real Hollow Earth
Even if the hollow earth theory is not correct, it doesn't mean that underground civilizations do not exist. Are they a possible future threat?
- Why the Mystery in the Grand Canyon
In 1909 a cavern was found in the Grand Canyon. It was said to have contained Egyptian and Tibetan items, all seemingly ancient. Why the secrecy?
- Have We Been Visited by Aliens.
There are many stories of aliens visiting our ancient ancestors. This highlights a couple of them that although they are so well known, are perhaps a little more believable.
