The Anasazi Origins Project is researching the extensive ruins, art, and artifcats, of the “old pueblo culture” in the American Southwest, the ruins of which dot the tributaries of the Colorado River (which empties into Mexico’s Gulf of Baha), and they have determined that the culture was flourishing circa 2000 B.C., but throwing a monkey-wrench into the traditional dating scheme, rock artworks depicting mastodons (which are elephants) have been discovered at Shay Canyon (Colorado Plateau), on Thousand Lakes Mountain (Utah), at Flora Vista (New Mexico), and in Havasupai Canyon (Nevada), with very ancient mining works for copper often nearby, the most ancient people there, who probably hunted the mastodons, and mined copper, little doubt which was shipped downstream the Colorado River and transported to the great city-states of ancient Central America, such as Izapa and Monte Alban.

The presence of “desert varnish” on the rockart proves they were not the work of pranksters in recent times, the rockart of mastodons is ancient, but from 2000 B.C., as the Anasazi Origins Project indicates, not from 10000 B.C., when the mainstream scientists say the Ice Age ended, and this “late” date matches the biblical book of Genesis timeline, with the Ice Age having ended circa 1500 B.C., when the sea level rose to consume hundreds of “bronze age” megalithic port cities around the world (see category Submerged Ancient Ruins), and when the climate dried out, as the dense cloudcover for the Ice Age was dissipated because the warmer oceans of the Ice Age (for greater evaporation to form clouds) had cooled to about today’s temperatures, ushering in our current climate regime.

So when the first Anasazis, probably decendants of the Lapida people, who had sailed across the Pacific, were building their culture in the U. S. Southwest, the climate of that now desert region was much wetter, so all that maize was grown in what then was lush pasture country but which now is more often than not desert.  And to learn how the ancients, during the Ice Age, navigating the high seas, be sure to checkout article #2 at
