Twelve Under Publicized Facts
I have written Veritas to say loudly and clearly what the
scientific and religious communities have been whispering about
for a number of years now. They all realize something, facts have
come to light that is going to be uncomfortable for all of us when
we realize the implications.
As I did my research into human and Earth histories, new
discoveries were being made that started to make the puzzle of who
we are much clearer. The puzzle of modern human is much like a
jigsaw puzzle. Most of the pieces are still in the box, Earth
sciences, history, and religious dogma being the pieces. They all
fit together, we just do not know how they fit yet.
As I write this, studies are being done to try and pinpoint why
the answers come back the same, again, and again. Answers to
questions we didn’t even know to ask. They were by-product answers
of studies intended for other questions. I put the pieces
together, imagined the missing pieces, and believe I saw the
completed puzzle. It seems the only answer. Veritas is of course,
mostly fiction, strictly from my imagination. But the following
facts are not. They are simply facts that anyone can look up and
are the underlying basis for Veritas.
In four billion years we are the only sentient (thinking or
conscious) beings ever to inhabit this planet. No other thinking
creature has ever existed here. If there had been, we would have
seen evidence. There is none.
Prior to 75,000 B.P. there were several hominid species on
Earth. Nothing like us, but their forms were close. Most of us
have seen the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens. If not live, then
in films. Mt. St. Helens ejected 1 cubic KM of material into the
atmosphere. If you have seen it, you know the devastating effects
it created. But the effects were for most purposes localized. In
1815 the island volcano of Mt. Tambora in Indonesia exploded. The
eruption killed over a hundred thousand people over the
archipelago and ejected into the atmosphere 100 cubic KM of
material. History records 1816 as “the year without summer”. There
was no summer for most of the world. The material ejected blocked
sunlight and very little grew. Even after 1816 the summers were
shortened for several years. Untold numbers simply starved to
death. The world the humans knew was in chaos. In all, millions
died from starvation, and the diseases that come and take the
weak, suffering from malnutrition. What saved us was the ability
to store food. Without that ability, the impact would have been
much greater. Tambora was an insignificant event compared with the
eruption of Mt. Toba in Sumatra 75,000 years ago. That eruption, a
VE1-8, the most powerful eruption known and the largest known in
recent Earth history ejected 2800 cubic KM of material into the
atmosphere. That is 28 times the size of the Mt. Tambora eruption.
The effect on the Earth’s ecosystem was immediate catastrophe. The
cloud encircling the Earth was thick and cut off much of the
sunlight. Six years of winter followed, and the Earth plummeted
straight down into the bottom of a nineteen thousand year ice age.
That ice age was one of the most brutal known in recent Earth
history, and was at it’s worst in a matter of days. Still we
wonder why we have found wooly mammoths frozen solid in ice with
green plants and flowers still in their stomachs. Someone should
take a guess. The answer was in front of us all the time. The
hominids that lived at that time had no way to store food. They
lived day to day, scavenging for food. For all but a tiny few, it
was the end. They were no more. No one today has much to say about
this enormous eruption that would have changed the world far more
than any eruption in the last six hundred thousand years. I
believe it is for good reason we don’t say much about it.
The only hominid species known to survive were the Neanderthal.
There were not many of them left. When the ice age was ending,
estimates put their population at just a few thousand. All Homo
erectus, Java man, and any others that might have been on Earth,
all evidence of their continued existence was gone.
Approximately sixty thousand years ago, as the ice age was
diminishing, there suddenly appeared ten thousand modern humans.
No different in anyway from humans today. The exception being the
eventual changes in outward appearance due to climate or survival
conditions. We are, according to blood MtDNA comparisons, ALL,
every human alive on this planet today, descended from those ten
thousand modern humans. The problem confronting everyone is that
at the time, there were no hominids on the planet alive except for
Neanderthal. We simply appeared as we are today out of “thin air”
so to speak. This poses a huge dilemma for evolutionary human
theories and religious beliefs as well. Why are we so very
different and vastly superior to anything that has walked this
We are all ONE species: there are no “races”, just differences
caused by evolutionary outward changes due to climatic or survival
conditions. This fact is worth repeating, we are all one species;
there are no “races”. Only changes due to climatic or survival
MtDNA can be tested to show measured changes over time, giving
an estimate of how long a species has been in existence. It cannot
measure where a species existed. The ten thousand appeared in one
place at one time, again let me say, exactly as we are today, and
they spread rapidly out all over the world. We would not be
descended from just the ten thousand if they had not been
accessible to each other for mating from the beginning.
The ten thousand humans that we all descended from came out of
North Africa. In forty seven thousand years we covered the globe,
and completely dominated it. We eliminated all competition. If we
felt threatened or were threatened, whatever stood in our way went
extinct, no exceptions, no mercy. Name any dangerous animal that
was around sixty thousand years ago. Cave Bears, Saber tooth
Tigers, Cave Lions. They are long gone. We exterminated them all.
Only the Neanderthal would dare fight the Cave Bear, and they lost
more than they won. The twenty thousand year war we fought against
the cave bears was a testimony to our determination and
intelligence. Nothing on this Earth could have exterminated them
but the modern human. Nothing on this Earth stood any chance
against the modern human, including the Neanderthal, whom we wiped
out at our leisure. The only dangerous animals left on this Earth
today are the ones we now protect for reasons of guilt. The trail
to our present civilization is clear from the remains of flint
factories forty thousand years ago to our airplane factories of
today. We have progressed light years further in sixty thousand
years than any species that resembled us ever did in the whole of
their existence. Yet still science insists, despite direct new
evidence to the contrary, we descended from some species that
didn’t change the way they made a flint tool for a hundred
thousand years. We change clothing styles every year.
Humans do not match up in DNA comparisons with any species on
this planet. That includes any extinct hominid known. 98.5% isn’t
good enough, that only means our bodies perform similar, not
alike. That does not make them us. Our body form is a common form
on this planet; but our brains and hands are capable of performing
complex, delicate physical actions. Why would we have this
ability, when the other animals including the hominids are unable
to do this? Perhaps because we were made for a different reason.
Why would the rules of DNA and body forms be any different on the
other side of the galaxy? Our body form might be common
everywhere. Or for a special purpose yet unknown.
Our brain superiority is beyond question. We appeared on this
planet with a vastly superior brain to any animal ever known. For
our size we have the largest and most energy consuming brain on
the planet. Also the density and construction of our brain is
completely different from anything on the planet. That is not even
getting into a discussion of the frontal lobe, which no other
animal has ever had. Our brain is so different; those studies
suggest that we may not have evolved from anything on this Earth.
In our lifetime, we record everything we sense. Huge amounts of
sensory information are recorded in our brains every minute of our
lives. We die with only ten to fifteen percent of our storage
capacity filled. Those are simply the facts. Why the vast unused
capacity? Were we meant to use it for purposes as yet unknown, or
long forgotten? Logic could point to the conclusion we are in fact
a “genetically engineered being”. Every new DNA discovery that
comes, points to that conclusion. There is not a shred of evidence
that we evolved from anything on this planet, other than we “look”
similar to some mammals that used to live here.
In Egypt there are a few massive granite and limestone
buildings, including the Sphinx that cannot be dated, as well as
the bases of the Pyramids. Some of the stones in these few
buildings weight 200 tons or more including the bases that the
Pyramids were built on. Weight we would have great trouble moving
today. They made buildings out of them. Stacked on top of each
other for walls. In the valley temple by the Sphinx some of the
blocks are 10 feet by 12 feet x 30 feet long. No one, especially
in those times could have moved and stacked that kind of weight.
They had to have had help. Outsourcing on those projects would
definitely be required. From where we have no clue. What the
buildings were for we can only speculate, but they are stark and
bare, not Egyptian looking at all. They are much older than we
ever imagined. Much older. Time will tell on that story.
In the Bible, Jesus says that the end of days are here when,
“The Sun will darken and the Moon will not give it’s light. The
stars will shake and stars will fall from the sky.” That is a
perfect description of a super volcanic eruption. How could he
know to describe the end of days in those terms? Even if the words
were not his and were simply made up, how would someone in 100
A.D. or before, know what a super eruption would look like?
Perhaps at some time we did have “help”. Though I am not a
religious person, there could be a kernel of truth to some of the
religious myths that we hand down. We would have had no other way
of describing what was really happening. If you don’t know what
you are seeing, you describe it only in terms you know how to
The last is a disappointment for me. Making hydrogen fuel by
mechanical means is not feasible. We have worked on this problem
long enough to recognize it will never happen. We expend more
energy producing it than it will return. We can burn wood and have
a more efficient and cheaper supply of power. My question to a top
chemical engineer about hydrogen fuel brought laughter. It will
never be economically feasible by mechanical means. He said that
if we could find a chemical to separate them, as in my story, then
he and I would never have to work again. I don’t believe that will
ever happen. But still, we pour money into the research black hole
of producing hydrogen fuel by mechanical means.
These are all facts that everyone seems to let go by
unacknowledged, though anyone with access to the Internet can find
the same facts in study after study. Science downplays these
facts. Religion ignores or denies them. There is a huge white
elephant standing in the middle of the room, and everyone walks
around it, ignoring it, afraid to mention it. If anyone can
dispute any one of these facts I listed, I would like to hear it.
The conclusions can always be disputed and should be. Though one
of the themes in Veritas, that well, humans will be humans would
be hard to dispute.
We by no stretch of the imagination know who we are. Humans are
a race with amnesia. Our distant past is unrecorded, or lost. We
all recognize that humans are special to this planet, unlike
anything ever seen. Are we from here? I believe we are just
beginning to discover who we are and why we are here. There is
much left to uncover. We have to keep looking into the how and the
why. All of us would benefit if we were to really find Veritas.

Excerpt from novel VERITAS by
Fifty Nine Thousand Years B.P.
In the days since the seven discs had arrived on the planet,
there had been no sign of any living being stirring from within
the vessels. In the early morning light the foreign objects
gleamed pure white, but the only eyes observing them or the
strange work taking place, were the birds and animals living
throughout the lush, river valley. The ominous noises of machines
at work signaled an alarm for the vast changes about to occur for
every living creature on the planet, all of whom carried on in
The discs rested atop hills sloping gently downward to the
flood plain of a wide river, which neighbored a series of high
cliffs facing them from the opposite side. At that point, the
water was deep and swift running through the valley, then widening
out as it flowed down to the delta and into the sea. The river was
fed from a huge lake, far inland, which was kept continuously full
by a seasonal, torrid downpour and the rest of the year by steady
tropical rains even further inland. In the early morning chill, a
thick mist rose from the water, so heavy that it almost obscured
the planting machines at work. Silver colored machines, as
silently as possible were planting trees. The young trees were all
six feet in height with pale green, four-pointed leaves. Each
machine contained four independently working arms. An auger was
attached to the end of the first, boring large holes into the
ground. The second had a grabbing claw which would then reach into
the back of the machine to an open bed stacked with upright trees,
pick one up and deposit the tree into the fresh hole. A third arm
gently tamped all the dirt neatly back down into the hole, while
the fourth arm sprayed water and fertilizer mix until the ground
Finally, the grabbing arm would reach back into the bed,
picking up a very thin, finely woven net, and carefully dropping
it, to completely cover the newly planted tree. The machines
worked quickly, steadily, and as silently as possible, repeating
the same task thousands of times. Someone had prepared well.
In seven days the trees would be fully grown to thirty feet.
The unmanned planting machines dotting the upper flood plain had
been at work for six full days. On this seventh morning their work
would be complete. In all, twenty thousand food trees had been
scattered in groves across the plain, and those planted on the
first day were already bearing their fruit. The birds swooping
through the air made attempts at flying into the trees, but the
thin nets protected the ripening fruit on the branches. Smaller
tree-dwelling animals tried as well, but met with the same lack of
The bright, yellow sun broke over the cliffs on the far side of
the river, its rays reflecting off the seven large objects resting
on top of the slopes, which made them shimmer in the sunlight. The
discs were thick in the middle, tapering to a thin edge, and
measuring three hundred feet in diameter. No openings or view
ports were apparent. By midmorning all planting was complete, and
the machines started back up the slopes to reenter one of the
discs in an orderly fashion. As the machines headed toward that
vessel, two ramps slid out each side of it, and they slowly
lowered to the ground. Doors that had formerly been imperceptible
slid up, allowing the machines back into their hold. Inside the
other six crafts, the holds, which were as brilliant white as the
outside of the vessels, had lined up within them row upon row of
cylindrical objects, a total of ten thousand in number. In unison
the other six discs started their part of the operations. The tops
of the cylinders slid back, revealing their contents. Ramps
extended out and descended to the ground, doors slid open.
At first, there was no movement. Then, slowly the People
enclosed, one to each cylinder, awakened from a long, deep sleep.
As they became conscious, they shakily began climbing out of their
cylinders and stood looking around at one another. Unsteadily,
they stretched and moved to regain their equilibrium, but no one
spoke. The People nearest the doors started toward the sunlight
that streamed through the openings of the holds. They were all
young males and females, striking in physical appearance. The
People appeared healthy, perfect, all of average height. They were
dressed in loose-fitting gray tunics that came down to their
knees; soft gray shoes covered their feet.
As the People worked their way outside and down the ramps, two
solid walls of pulsating light appeared in the middle of the
holds, from ceiling to floor, cutting the holds in half. The walls
of light were solid to the touch and began to separate, forcing
the People to the openings. At the back, the People closest to the
beams started pushing, their voices finally being heard. Growing
frantic now, their voices became louder and angrier as they
desperately tried to stay ahead of the slowly moving walls. The
People knew how unpleasant the sensation would be if a beam were
to touch them.
As those in front began stepping off the ramps, some migrated
out, heading into the groves, exploring the strange, new scenery.
Others gathered in groups, anxiously looking about. When the last
of the People began walking the soft earth, the pulsating beams
finally reached the doors. Then, the ramps of all six discs
unexpectedly dropped to the ground, their doors quickly sliding
shut. Those watching immediately were filled with alarm at the
sight and sound of the ramps hitting the ground. Most began
screaming and crying in fear. Fear in some swiftly turned to
anger. Several thousand rushed the solitary disc that was still
reloading the planting machines. When they came within twenty
yards, the last ramp was released and fell to the ground with the
final planting machine still on it. As the last door slid down,
the People stopped, and the hysteria climbed ever higher. Some
People — both males and females — screamed and cried. A number of
them sat on the ground, while others simply stood there.
Not knowing what to do, more of the People moved into the
A few thousand still sat nearby, staring at the discs in
shocked disbelief. A large group of males flew into a collective
rage and tried to find a way back inside the vessels, frantically
pawing at the undersides. There was no way in to be found. The
males gave up and backed away. Anguished screams and cries echoed
grotesquely against the far cliffs. The People now had more than
an inkling of what was to momentarily happen despite their
desperate hope that it would not. Finally it began. The hysteria
of the People reached a new climax when they heard high-pitched,
whining noises coming from the discs. The engines were being fired
up. The People backed away as the noise grew into a thunderous
roar. All seven spaceships suddenly jumped five hundred feet
straight up into the air, turning on their sides as they did. They
looked like seven gleaming full moons. For a few moments they hung
motionless in the clear afternoon sky, as if gathering strength.
Then their rapid acceleration up and out of the atmosphere made
them seem to abruptly disappear before the eyes of the People left
behind. The crying and screaming died away at once. Five thousand
young males, and five thousand young females, were left in shock,
staring silently up into an empty, blue sky. They had been
abandoned. The People had no clue what planet they were standing
on, or in which solar system they were located. They had no idea
if they could find a way home. Or even if they did get their
bearings, how to even start to begin to get back to their home
They had been left only with food-bearing trees and the clothes
on their backs. There were no explanations, no reasons at all as
to why this had been done.
Disputes arose immediately as to who had control over the
foodbearing tree groves, getting water, sleeping arrangements, and
most important of all, who would dictate these things. By
nightfall the fighting and killings had begun.
