Petroglyph of atlatl at Valley of Fire in Nevada
The atlatl is an ancient hunting device used to throw a spear faster and harder. They were found all over Nevada and specifically inside the Lovelock Cave where it is said over 2600 red-haired people were exterminated off by the Pauite. The most interesting thing is that the atlatl originated out of Europe and is also associated with the Solutrean culture. Per Wikipedia:
A spear-thrower or atlatl ( ; Nahuatl: ahtlatl Nahuatl pronunciation: [?a?t??at??]) is a tool that uses leverage to achieve greater velocity indart-throwing, and includes a bearing surface which allows the user to store energyduring the throw.
The earliest secure data concerning atlatls has come from several caves in France dating to the Upper Paleolithic, about 21,000 to 17,000 years ago. The earliest known example is a 17,500 year-old Solutrean atlatl made of reindeer antler and found at Combe Saunière (Dordogne), France.
So what was the atlatl doing in the Americas thousands of years ago? My theory is that ancient Europeans travelled over either by the Bering Strait (following the mammoth) and/or by boat from the coasts of Europe via the Atlantic Ocean (they followed the land and the water levels were lower).
If genetic tests are ever allowed on Spirit Cave man and other Clovis mummies, it will have to be very detailed. Stating something has DNA consistent with “Native Americans” is not explicit enough and a cop out.
The ancient Americas were populated by multi migrations and possibly by Europeans first. To continue to deny the growing amount of evidence is obviously politically motivated. Just by bringing up the subject or questioning the inconsistencies with the “official story of an Asian Utopia” I have already heard the “white supremacist” label brought up. Keep in mind, I’ve also pointed out evidence that Blacks (Negritos) may have made it to South America first. This is a touchy subject with much to lose by those who claim “victimhood” and require 3 billion in federal funding, yearly while being allowed to run casinos and have their own “laws” on their own “land” while the rest of us slave away at our jobs to pay the bills and hope to have healthcare.
