Scientists Identified a Stone Circle Found in a Field as a 4500 Year-Old Structure – They Were Very, Very Wrong

How off were scientists that dated a stone circle found in a field at 4500 years-old?

Oh, about 4500 years.

The stone structure, that was going to change their understanding of prehistoric building, was built by a farmer about 20 years ago.

Forgive me for not being impressed with climatologists who say the world is coming to an end.

  1. They asked me if I had a degree in theoretical physics.
    I told them I had a theoretical degree in physics.

    They said I was hired!

  2. I recall watching a guy flint knapping arrowheads years ago. He cautioned about cleaning up the area afterwards because in the future no one tell if the discarded flint chips were from an arrowhead made today or one made 100s or thousands of years ago by some ancient culture. Pretty difficult dating stone.

    I’m pretty sure they’ve also come way down about when & how long it took for Grand Canyon to be carved too. What happened to the area around Mt St Helens has caused a lot of rethinking about how long other old geographic features took to form. Down from thousands of years to only days.

  3. Remember how the practitioners of “settled science” wouldn’t let Darwin play in their reindeer, err, scientist games?
    They tried to do Galileo in, one in a crowded field of genius during the European Renaissance.
    There is no such thing as “settled science” anybody who says “settled science” is an idiot, end of story.

  4. The dirty secret of the AGW (scientific) crowd is that they KNOW AGW is complete and utter bullshit. The fools, stooges, sycophants, imbeciles, and sheep who follow in their wake, braying the loudest, (see Gore, AO-C, &c.) have no idea.

    But there’s money to be made – and a World to conquer – so they lend a hand with their Lysenko-Science to secure their position in the New World Order.

    It’s an old story – and a sad one – of hypocrisy, of betrayal, of pushing the “narrative” beyond the realm of reason (and reality), and ultimately, the bitter decline into insignificance.

    Not to imply that it isn’t dangerous – or that it shouldn’t be stopped.
    For stopped it must be – it won’t evaporate of its own imbecility.

    > Last week I couldn’t spell scientist…this week I are one.

  6. I have driven all around Ireland twice with an old AAA guidebook from the 1960s, that I found in a used book store. It had everything imaginable worth seeing listed and described with directions and drawings, including hundreds of stone sites like this one. The British Isles are relatively small places, and there have been thousands of eccentric people who dedicated their entire lives to nvestigating these ancient sites. This isn’t the first one that turned out to be younger than expected. The ones in Scotland are overrun with “Outlander” enthusiasts. It’s a good thing that there is always a pub within a few hours of any of these places, because it helps keep the scientific details in perspective. I reckon that this one will bring a lot of business to the pubs in the nearby town.

  7. I am not a scientist but I play one on the internet and my scientific conclusions about scientists are as follows: Don’t know what bathroom to use even after glancing down inside their pants/panties, don’t know if implanted eggs are human life until it asks to use the car, don’t know if the earth has been around forever or wandered by after a hot date with Saturn, don’t know that winters are cold and summers are hot in most parts of the world, don’t know that most democraps are really alien life dropped here by Satan because he couldn’t stand being around then any longer, etc, etc, etc!

  8. Science deniers ignore so much real evidence (giant skeletons, ancient cities that provide no explanations, and a real lack of ancient fossil connections) to make crap up to support their own theories.

    If you believe the stories of God then you already have a good start on the earth’s history (and BTW it’s a lot more complicated than a young/old earth tussle) but there’s evidence of supernatural struggle and entities at work in the earth’s past, present, and future. A real humdinger of a battle between light and dark; and a struggle for human souls.

    Unlike L. Ron Hubbard, Joseph Smith, and Mohammad you can’t make this stuff up.

  9. Issue government grants to study the frauds related to global warming. Within months every university in America would expose the fraud to keep those lucrative grants coming. Sorta like the way Global Warming was started.
