This is –so far– the best we can do to picture the genealogies & relationships of the earliest Chinese patriarchs like Nüwa, Fuxi, Shen Nong Shi, Huang Di, Yan Di, etc, and their descent from each other all the way to Da Yu. It took quite a while to put together and I hope it can be of use for some people and researchers to understand how tightly interwoven the early Chinese ancestors actually were, and that they were anything but “mythological” but rather legendary and true!
Sure, there were many embellishments inserted into their lives over the millennia, but the persons are real! Even the dragons they rode are historical as you can find out on our other posts! Even Marco Polo reported the Chinese used dragons to pull carts! To see large version, right-click on the pic and then on ‘VIEW IMAGE”! Enjoy!

Great disasters have always taken place all throughout history causing huge loss of life. Most were natural disasters, although some were caused by human intervention or negligence, as today many floods and landslides are caused by over-cutting of forests high up in the mountains. It is a fact that in antiquity there was more and greater volcanic activity than before the 20th century, so earthquakes, floods and tsunamis were more frequent until then. Sad to say it appears that since the beginning of the last century earthquakes and tsunamis are on the rise again, as well as more human caused disasters caused by human intervention, like the recent earthquakes in Sichuan were caused by the construction of the Chinese huge and heavy Three Gorges Dam.

The most obfuscated “pterodactyl” photo in history? Article also in Deutsch, Espanol, Français, Nederlands, & 中文 and also available as a Fully Illustrated PPS Powerpoint Presentation 1,6 MB here!
There’s a very old photo that no one can see! It’s not that it doesn’t exist,–it exists alright!–but no one is really allowed to see it by the “thought police”. (George Orwell 1984) But even when people see it, many still can’t see it as it really is! At least, very few. I hope you can! Allow me to set the stage…
When an octopus is threatened it expels a confusing cloud of ink into the face of its pursuer. The ink-fish is still there, but temporarily becomes invisible behind its cloud of ink while it makes its get-away. Continue reading The Civil War Pterosaur shot no one should see!”- Must read!

“Evolution endures as the organizing principle of all biological science.”
“Charles Darwin’s extraordinarily difficult task was to find a source of intelligence—a substitute god—to explain how all of life could display countless features that clearly look like they were chosen for specific purposes by intelligence—but not God’s intelligence. “Natural selection” was his extraordinarily clever explanation.” — Darwin’s Sacred Imposter: Recognizing Missed Warning Signs by Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D.
“A quite general issue has still received no canonical treatment: what kind of a thing is natural selection anyway? A law, a principle, a force, a cause, an agent, or all or some of these things? The view that natural selection is a law has been countered by the view that it is a principle, while that conclusion has been countered in turn by an insistence that it is neither.”
— Hodge, M. J. S. 1992. Natural Selection: Historical Perspectives. Keywords in Evolutionary Biology. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 218.
