“Primitive” Humans Were Sailors

first_imgGreek archaeologists have found stone tools on Crete thought to be between 130,000 and 700,000 years old, reported PhysOrg.  If so, the makers had to sail to get there.  “Crete has been separated from the mainland for about five million years, so whoever made the tools must have traveled there by sea (a distance of at least 40 miles).”  Before this announcement, the earliest date claimed for ancestors of humans was about 60,000 years, the article said, “although considerably earlier dates have been proposed”.  Back in February, claims of the younger date (130,000 years) “flabbergasted” the discoverers (see 02/18/2010).  Even then, an archaeologist compared it to finding an iPod in King Tut’s tomb.Tut, tut.  Observers of the collapse of human paleoanthropology are not surprised by more and more anomalies.  The surprises are the new norm.  This indicates that the non-surprising interpretation is outside the evolutionary box.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Punjab plans ordinance route for CM’s advisers

first_imgAmid the ongoing controversy over the appointment of six Minister-rank advisers to Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, the Punjab government on Thursday decided to bring in an ordinance to exclude adviser (political and planning) from the ambit of the Punjab State Legislature (Prevention of Disqualification) Act, 1952.The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting held at Dera Baba Nanak that was presided over by the Chief Minister.No disqualificationAn official statement said the ordinance will amend the law to add these posts to the list of posts that are not considered office of profit for the purpose of disqualification of MLAs. With the amendment, these MLAs will not be disqualified.The Punjab State Legislature (Prevention of Disqualification) Act, 1952, had been enacted in terms of Article 191 of the Constitution, to declare certain offices of profit as not disqualifying the holders of such office from being members of the State legislature.“Enacted in 1952, the Act has undergone minor amendments from time to time. However, such amendments have not taken into account the complexity of modern day governance. Further, these amendments to the said Act have not taken into account the reports and studies of various parliamentary committees which addressed the issue of office of profit. Therefore, the Cabinet felt the need to amend Section 2 of the Punjab State Legislature (Prevention of Disqualification) Act, 1952,” said the statement.The Cabinet also authorised the Punjab Governor to approve and recommend the draft ordinance for promulgation, said the statement.Six advisersThe Punjab government had earlier this month appointed six Minister-rank advisers to the Chief Minister.
