Past in monsoon changes linked to major shifts in Indian civilizations.
I had to comment on this more than just a tweet. Last year, I started studying the evolution of humanity. I came across great evidence suggesting that people originated in India, and then headed to Africa (and everywhere else).
This could turn out to be a very long post, so bear with me. (First off, why bear? Are bears patient? Are they able to put up with things for a long time? Do they play with their food? Hm.)
Ok, for all of you who don’t want to read everything: This, to me, shows that (much later than the emergence of the modern man), India was perfect breeding grounds for evolution, industrially, evolutionary, and genetically.
Now, the heavy stuff.
The Sumerians are considered the earliest civilization. They had the first written language, first schools, etc. But they have a problem. It’s called the Sumerian problem. And that is no one knows where they came from.
Because of Kurt Lambeck we know that the Persian Gulf was dry land between 18,000 and 14,000 BC, or right after the ice age, and the melting is what filled it up. This happened as the tides happen today – often. The Persian Gulf is rumored to have drained and refilled constantly between 14,000 and 7,000 BC. That whole area was probably where they came from, or, as Hancock and Lambeck (two researchers) suggest, “east of Iran”. Know what’s east of Iran? India.
So here I pose the question. Did the Sumerians emerge from India? The Indus Valley Civilization is also unknown for it’s origins. Could they all be the same? I’ve posted a few questions in forums about this, based on DNA of the two, but of course we don’t have enough information about the actual people to say at this point. I hope in the future we will gain more knowledge.
The above is scanned from “Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization” by Graham Hancock. It details the Persian Gulf from 21,300 years ago until 4800 years ago. Of course this is relative as it fluctuated. However this gives a good idea where the travelers could have gone and when. I don’t see why they would have travelled from China or Pakistan along the water’s border. The only place they would have kept to the shore lines would have been India. Pakistanis likely would have headed more North than West and the Chinese wouldn’t have gone that south in the first place.
The other idea is that they could have come from within the Persian Gulf. As far as we know it was a ‘garden of eden’ before it was flooded, the perfect temperature and climate and conditions to house a civilization. That we won’t know though until we search the bottom of the sea. And even then perhaps they still emerged from India, settled in the Gulf, and then travelled North as the water forced them too. We know the earliest Sumerian city was Eridu, which is the most north-western city. So they likely travelled as far north as they were comfortable, and then settled. The waters stopped rising so they were able to create cities close to the water as time passed.
I’d love more information regarding DNA and geological evidence. I’m sure if they traveled somewhere along the way they would have dropped something. We know Egypt and India share seals and other art forms but we don’t know much about the land between the two. What I’m wondering, is based on the linked post from above, does the monsoon differences prove any of this? Does it prove the natural causes for migration?
And, I’ll mention Kumari Kandam, the proposed sunken continent that attached India, Australia, and Madagascar. It’s possible that the monsoons would have assisted in it’s sinking.
What do you think?
