Over the past months, I have attempted to establish contact with leaders of the Haida people, as well as others supposedly connected to the tribe. My intent was to inform them of my findings, which could help them to better understand their past. Because those efforts have been unsuccessful, I decided to write about the matter.
My interest in the Haida renewed last fall when I came across an article, “Archaeologist make historic find in Haida Gwaii,” available here. The researchers mentioned in the article had found pollen spores in charcoal remnants and dated them back 13,000 years before present – 2000 years before records of known Haida occupation of the region.
This finding reminded me of my initial interest in the Haida, formed from another news account from 2014, “Archaeologists discover 13,800-year-old underwater site at Haida Gwaii,” reported here and here. Sonar images revealed Haida artifacts, such as fishing weirs, beneath 120+ meters of Pacific water. Archaeologists claim that the site was exposed at the height of the last ice age when geologists believe the ocean levels were much lower. This explanation rests on geology’s indisputably erroneous “no flood, ever” paradigm that affects all modern science and associated fields. Unsurprisingly, the explanation is wrong.
Here is what happened:
The Haida were seafarers who practiced their craft in the pre-flood Pacific Ocean. An approximation to the Pacific’s pre-flood extent is shown in Figure 8 of my paper, The Flooding of the Mediterranean Basin at the Younger-Dryas Boundary, published about a year ago in Mediterranean Archaeology and Archaeometry. A copy of that map is shown, below, with a yellow oval added to identify the likely Haida pre-flood habitation region. Note that what is now the Hawaiian Island chain was part of a pre-flood landmass situated amidst the former ocean. Any similarities in Haida and Hawaiian culture, language, and folklore are likely to find their source in a common people indigenous to this pre-flood region.
Who knows how long the Haida practiced their seamanship prior to the flood? But this much is certain: their seafaring skills would allow them to survive the event. There is no doubt that they saw to their east the massive celestial object that would deliver the flood (I call it the IO, for impacting object, in my paper) as it overflew North America just prior to impact. It is likely they experienced the earthquake shock from the IO impact. They would have recognized that something was amiss when, soon after the impact, the IO’s melted ice waters began coursing their way around the planet and inundating the Haida’s former homeland. At the first sign of rising water, they would have occupied their crafts, and they would have done all they could to keep the eastern extent of the rising ocean’s coastline within their view. This eastward journey is likely to have lasted weeks.
When the oceans’ level reached that of the passageway into the Mediterranean Sea through the Strait of Gibraltar, there would have been a halt in the water level rise in the Earth’s newly-connected oceans as the Med basin filled. At this time, thinking that the flooding had ceased, the Haida set up camp, about 100m above the cessation level and ~120m below the present ocean level.
However, the flood waters had not attained their final level. As a consequence, once the Med had completely flooded, the worldwide ocean level would resume its rise. This would have caused the Haida to abandon this first encampment, man their craft once again, and continue their journey eastward until the water level attained its current extent. This explains the discovery of Haida remnants off the Pacific coast six years ago in 120+m of water – the remains were from their initial encampment. (Makes for a good movie, no?)
Although there might have been earlier human forays into North America prior to the worldwide flood, they would have been short-lived because, at more than two miles above the level of the former abyss, it would have been too cold for furless humans to sustain permanent settlements, particularly during any ice ages. Thus, the Haida’s flood journey makes them the first permanent settlers in North America, though they are not indigenous in the sense that they survived into North America; they are not originally from North America. Other early North Americans are likely to have arrived through Central America or the Gulf of Mexico region. All native Americans are descendants of worldwide flood survivors – there are no humans indigenous to North America.
Let us recognize that the flood’s waters forever and irreversibly changed the planet and its ecosystem. As with all flood survivors, the Haida had to adapt to a new Earth, a non-trivial task that continues to the present.
Related: The human migration myth
Maps depicting human migrations, like the one from TransPacificproject.com, below, are based on the prevailing “no flood, ever” paradigm.
Data for such maps come from research like “A DNA Search for the First Americans Links Amazon Groups to Indigenous Australians,” reported in a 2015 Smithsonian article. There we find the next map displaying, by color, DNA similarities among indigenous humans (dark = closely linked, clear = not closely linked). Note that native Australians are closely linked to native South Americans.
In the Smithsonian article, we read:
“More than 15,000 years ago, humans began crossing a land bridge called Beringia that connected their native home in Eurasia to modern-day Alaska. Who knows what the journey entailed or what motivated them to leave, but once they arrived, they spread southward across the Americas.
The prevailing theory is that the first Americans arrived in a single wave, and all Native American populations today descend from this one group of adventurous founders. But now there’s a kink in that theory. The latest genetic analyses back up skeletal studies suggesting that some groups in the Amazon share a common ancestor with indigenous Australians and New Guineans. The find hints at the possibility that not one but two groups migrated across these continents to give rise to the first Americans.”
Thus, according to the article, and as depicted in the migration map, we are supposed to believe that, during the last ice age, native Australians made their way northward! more than 10,000 km through Asia, crossed an hypothesized land bridge through either the Bering Strait or the Aleutian Atoll, then made their way another 10,000+ km to South America – all the while doing so without leaving their DNA signature!? What bunk.
The correct explanation for the DNA similarities between native Australians and native South American has nothing to do with migrations; instead it has to do with surviving the worldwide flood. Pre-flood humans from the same “clan” spanned the tropical to near-tropical expanse from Australia to South America, and flood survivors from the eastern and western extents of the region bear the family’s DNA signature. Related materials regarding Lemuria (and COL James Churchward’s work) can be found here.
Other maps depicting DNA similarities are accessible from eupedia, and several are shown, below (Mediterranean, Early European Farmer, and Atlantic admixtures).
The darkest regions correlate with the origination for the particular admixture, meaning that the DNA maps corroborate that humans from the pre-flood Mediterranean Basin survived upward to presently subaerial landscapes surrounding what is now the Mediterranean Sea. They did not migrate out of Africa, as claimed in the TransPacific map.
Of particular interest to me is the greatest concentration of the Atlantic admixture found near the Basque region of Spain in the bottom map. This indicates that humans from the pre-flood Atlantic basin survived the worldwide flooding event 12,800 years before present. Their relatives from Atlantis were not so fortunate.
The Haida are North America’s first permanent settlers.
Because of geology’s error, myths such as the human migrations depicted in the TransPacific map perpetuate as accepted science. In addition, ubiquitous cultural accounts of the worldwide flood are treated as the musings of ancient, unintelligent humans when, in actuality, they are accounts of an historic event.
Prior to the flood, abyssal landscapes were much warmer because (1) the flood’s waters present an incredible heat sink that has made post-flood Earth cooler, and (2) higher atmospheric pressure in abyssal regions.
Humans evolved in pre-flood abyssal landscapes (dark tan regions on the pre-flood map), and its warmer environment explains why we are furless.
Importantly, we should recognize that we are ill-adapted to Earth’s post-flood environments, and our survival necessitates environmental abuses such as resource exploitation.
