Broken bones and rocks yield evidence that pushes back the record of early humans in North America by more than 100,000 years

Humans were in America 115,000 years earlier than thought: Dramatic discovery that mastodon bones were butchered with Stone Age tools has forced scientists to stunning new conclusion   Daily Mail - April 26, 2017
A controversial find could rewrite the history of humans in North America. Archaeologists claim to have found evidence an unknown species of human was living on the continent as early as 130,000 years ago - 1115,000 years earlier than previously thought. Researchers discovered the butchered remains of an enormous mastodon in San Diego, with evidence of chips and fractures made by early humans - but they admit they don't know if they were Homo sapiens, Homo erectus, Neanderthals, or something else.

The Human Genome Project was completed in April 2003 and this day is to honor that, as well as the discovery of the Double Helix.

Many cultures have legends about blue skinned aliens - sometimes thought of as the progenitors of the human race - the "blue bloods" whose bloodlines exist today. From the Hopi Blue Kachinas to the Hindu Gods to blue-skined gray aliens and Reptilians - to others more humanoid - it all goes to your frame of reference and genetic memories from other subroutines you are experiencing in the hologram.
