GENEVIEVE VON PETZINGER – THE FIRST SIGNS, UNLOCKING THE MYSTERIES OF THE WORLD’S OLDEST SYMBOLS – 2016
APPENDIX: CHRIS HEGG — ANCIENT UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE OF MAN — 2015
Genevieve von Petzinger has just finished her Ph.D., but she is connected to National Geographic in their Paleoanthropology department. But the book is not up to the research in the field of the last ten or fifteen years, at times even more.
First of all, her locking her personal research onto Europe is of course very dubious and definitely unacceptable in our global world. Then her coverage of Africa is only collecting information about what others have done, but she mentions Sally McBrearty only once haphazardly though Sally McBrearty spoke very loudly against two myths. First she rejected the idea of a Neolithic agricultural revolution. And the second thing Sally McBrearty was very critical of is the idea of a cognitive revolution somewhere around 50,000 BCE, because all the elements these cognitive revolutionaries are putting on the table are all necessary genetic mutations for Homo Sapiens to become a bipedal long distance fast runner when he came out of the forest
The collateral side effect of these mutations is that Homo Sapiens was able to multiply the vowels he could utter and the consonants he could articulate. He could then develop human articulated language.
But Genevieve von Petzinger is short on a few other subjects. She does not study the THREE basic migrations out of BLACK Africa. She is so ignorant on this subject that she does not know about the vast research of Theo Vennemann who proved Old Homo Sapiens in Europe, the Homo Sapiens of the Ice Age that von Petzinger is considering, spoke a set of Turkic agglutinative languages and nothing else.
Moreover, it is not scientifically acceptable to transfer a modern world shamanistic practice onto another practice that is at least 45,000 years older. Such retrospective transfer is a methodological mistake that disqualifies eventual conclusions.
Luckily Genevieve von Petzinger herself concludes that is worth nothing, that no shamanism can be proved. So why on earth did she write and published all these pages on something that is worth nothing?
