For many years, Bigfoot has been, without a doubt, the most recognized mystery in all of North America. Bigfoot has reportedly been sighted thousands of times since the beginning of the 19th Century. Bigfoot is sometimes referred to as Sasquatch, an Indian name, which means “hairy giant”. There have been a lot of eyewitness’s testimonies that Bigfoot is this big gigantic ape covered in thick, brownish fur and towers in at eight feet tall and weighs over six hundred pounds. Many people believe that perhaps Bigfoot is a creature from another dimension or just some phenomenal creature.
The answer to this question is much more complex than one might imagine. Among other theories, are ideas such as the speculation that Adolf Hitler felt some sort of animosity toward the Jewish community, however, that is a falsehood. Millions of Jews during the Holocaust and the twenty people of the Salem Witch Trials had to face: being unfairly blamed for something you did not do.. Likewise, Adolf Hitler ridded the nation of anyone considered an unpure German: Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals.
Sherman and Superman are both considered oddities even though Sherman was born on Earth. “...simply an oddity.” Alexie was an oddity because he is a smart Indian. “...born Kal-El on the planet Krypton…” According to Wikipedia Superman was born on another planet which makes him an oddity.
Yeti. Sasquatch. Bigfoot. The names instantly conjure images of enigmatic apelike creatures existing at the thresholds of human experience. We imagine them as huge, hairy, and walking on two legs, a perception developed throughout generations of sightings and crystallized in 1967 by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin in their brief but historic film ( Higgins ).
Hundreds of years ago, people used to believe that the earth was flat, but with the research and technology, we were able to find out that it is a perfect sphere. Aliens run along those same lines. Even with all the technology today, there is still no definite answer if we are alone in this massive universe or not. There is so much controversy weather or not aliens exist.
The facts which Millard included might have been seen as unnecessary, but all the facts which were included were necessary and important to the story of Garfield’s presidency. It addressed the wound Garfield had in his lower left back and “what was perhaps as stunning to the doctors as the location of the bullet was the infection that had ravaged through Garfield’s body”(268 Millard). Millard's representation of the doctor’s thoughts and interest in
Mayans were a polytheistic society that built temples for their gods. Priests are held in high respect. Since it was said only specially trained people could only hope to understand the gods(Walker 450). Priests also took up the main jobs within the Mayan society ie.) astronomy, math, hieroglyphics, calendrics, rituals, medicine, teachers, prophecy(Walker 450) and more. The gods were very tricky to please which meant rituals had to be done at the right time or the purpose may fall short of the goal.
The Mayans are autochthonous people of Mexico and Central America who have Intermined and inhabited the lands comprising modern-day Yucatan, Quintana Roo, Campeche, Tabasco, and Chiapas in Mexico and southward through Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador and Honduras. The mayans believed in human sacrifice and their gods name is quetzalcoatl but they believe in multiple gods but the one god indicated a feathered serpent a flying reptile AKA like a dragon who was a boundary malcer and transgressor between earth and sky he was a creator of deity having contributed essentials to the creation of mankind the feathered serpent was one of the major deities of the ancient mexican patheon representations of a feathered snake. occurred as early as
Some might argue that the kid was just an ordinary Cro-Magnon who had adapted to the Ice Age. But Trinkaus disagrees and says, “The kid must be the product of interbreeding over the entire period, not a one-time hybrid produced by star-crossed lovers” (11). The way the Neanderthals lived their life was symbolic to humans on how we live our life. Jared Diamond, article “Race without Color”, was about different regions of the world have some significant characteristics such as dark skin in Africa, but that does not mean that humans can be categorized into groups. He uses biology to determine their biological characteristic such as (skin, fingerprints, lactase, blood type) they all come out differently.
The bones of the Kennewick man dates back to 18 thousand years old. This man’s skeleton is the most complete skeleton researchers have found in North America. Scientist think that this skeleton is too important and should not be given back to the Native American tribe. Scientist’s have taken so much data about his skeleton that it took 9 years to publish it all.
As dictators across the world took power, each had their set of skeletons hiding in the closet. Whether it helped them in the long run or not, experimentation couldn’t have been any more of a perfect timing. Easy to hide since everyone was busy with war, so the Japanese joined in on experimenting on humans as a way of science. Though the Nazi’s did take number one spot for the most brutal human experimentation, the Japanese was definitely in the number two spot. For 40 years, the Japanese was able to hide the experiment called Unit 731, or germ welfare.
This skeleton, named the “Kennewick Man” due to its location in Kennewick, Washington, was the oldest, most well-reserved skeleton found in North America. Shortly after the remains were unearthed, controversy and debate surrounded the home and origin of the skeleton. “Archaeologist Dr. James Chatters, working on contract with the Benton County coroner, thought that the bones might not be Native American.” If this were proven to be true, it would cause massive waves in what we thought we knew about our science and history. Initially classified as “Caucasoid”, Chatters modified his
The Clovis Point… Clovis were thought to be the first people in America until Eva was found. They were known for their spear heads called “clovis points”. One of the first Clovis sites was found along with a Mastodon tusk that the Clovis’s had killed way back when. It had circular grooves in it that they had cut into it with a knife that they had invented.
