It is strange to me how difficult it has been over the years to get anyone to contribute/participate to the subject of earlier occupation of Giza and other pyramid sites. Mainstream and fringe alike-does not matter. At this point I am almost as equally interested in why this is as obviously one would think this would be as interesting a subject as any if not more so given its relevance and importance to both camps. 

 

 The exact same problem is encountered when one tries to bring up the Mississippian culture. When I visited Cahokia several years ago, I was shocked to learn that only 1% of the site has been excavated. They built large cities and mounds from the Great Lakes to the Gulf, with extensive trade routes and yet there seems to be no interest in research.

The fringe by and large has to ignore any earlier occupation at Giza because so many of their claims rely on advanced civilizations or aliens. They are forced to look away from any evidence in hand because it would negate much of what they say. Also, they can't have their readership too knowledgeable on the subject or they'll get off the hook.

My impression over the years is that it is an inconvenient truth for both parties.

You can’t have people knowing what the First Peoples of the America’s were REALLY like, otherwise all the Chads and Karen’s might start feeling bad about all the invasion, murder, rape, plague blankets and broken deals that happened instead of being able to fool themselves into thinking that their ancestors brought “civilisation” to a bunch of “primitives”.

They never should have acted like they were better than the Natives, who invaded, murdered, raped and broke deals getting hold of the territory they "traditionally" were in.

Well no one gets upset that Anatolian farmers, folks from the Steppes, people from x and y all showed up at some point and brought civilization to somebody else all over the globe. It is interesting to consider what the Americas might have produced in the way of civilizations had they started on those paths a little earlier than they did.

With Trading Centers all up and down the Eastern Seaboard.

In Savannah Georgia There was a huge Arawak-Taino trading center, destroyed. 75- 85% of the mounds, destroyed.  The Algonquian speaking Meadowood Culture dominated the Northeast in trade during the Early Woodland......90 percent of sites.....destroyed.....etc.....etc.......etc........

The Athapaskan ancestors of the Apache and Navajo crossed the Bering in boats during the Terminal Archaic, ran from a volcano in Alaska. Then killed and/or ate anyone in their way. 

But the Athapaskan did bring the bow and arrow to NA. ^_^
