The Amazon basin had a population comparable to Peru in pre columbian times. You can tell where villages and towns once stood from the rich black soil the Indians created and nurtured. This is in contrast to the rest of the forest floor which is nutrient poor.

The age of stupid is upon us. Scientific conclusions are drawn from missing data, resuming to suppositions and guessing.

It is known that many indigenous populations like maya have dissapeared . It is believed they modified their landscape including cutting trees to such extend that were left inprotected and killed by wild animals to the disparitions.

Interesting article. I think it is clear that we don't fully appreciate the length of our history on this planet. Of course much of that is due to historical evidence existing from more recent ages more abundantly, and not much beyond 'uniform' earthworks existing from our most ancient ancestors to indicate our presence in this case.
It does seem consistent with the activities the article suggests and it is most likely not natural as after all, nature abhors uniformity, I suppose this touches upon the Intelligent Design Movement and the fact that if they see a straight line out there in the universe, it is most likely designed and placed there by an intelligence due to the natural abhorrence of nature for such phenomena...
Just a thought and a bit of a rambling from a curious observer, great article though!
