Homo Who?

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?


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.

      So if there is so much left unexplained on this Planet why are we spending billions looking for life on other planets such as Mars, unless it is just misdirection.

      Obviously there is a lot more to the Hollow Earth story and underground cities and civilizations, thanks for another good hub.

      I hardly believe that people lived underground given our morphology! The only rational explanation would be that they are the linking piece that was missing from our evolution meaning, how did we directly evolve from marine mammals to terrestrial without a natural transition?

      Secondly, I know for a fact that few cities were buried by natural cataclism, why couldn't it be the case for this new find? Couldn't it be the result of a cultural belief like many societies did? What about a sub race? Between the animal and the humanoid?

      Questions among others? As for aliens, it doesn't make sense!

      I only just spotted this is the news. It definitely leads to more questions than answers in my opinion. The abundance of underground tunnels on Earth and Mars is also intriguing.

      A very thought provoking Hub. This will give me something to think about while trying to get to sleep tonight. I do believe that we have been and are still being influenced by aliens.
