Theo Kley

Monday, 28 April 2008

I know little of the people that I have been writing about recently, the group that gave Amsterdam in the sixties the magic that still echoes in the city nowadays.
For all kind of reasons I feel much sympathy for Theo Kley, based on the videos and interviews and stories that I have seen or heard about him. In the nineties he was interviewed by Willem de Ridder for his Talk Radio show. I used to tape these radio shows, and the interview with Theo Kley survived my tape erasing activities.
The most interesting part of the interview is about the discoveries that Theo did when he was in India. He talks about caves where he had seen and photographed many ancient drawings of human beings and dinosaurs. According to scientific consensus this is not possible: dinosaurs are said to have been extinct since about 65 million years ago, long before there had evolved human beings similar to us. The estimations within hard core science vary a bit, but it is thought that dino’s and our kind lived at least 50 million years apart. Which makes cave paintings of men and dino’s impossible. Here is the part of the show where Theo talks about the incredible finds.

There are people who have a different idea about the chronology of the evolution of life forms on this planet. One of them is Micheal Cremo. Together with Richard Thompson he wrote a very massive book about all the artefacts that he found in musea, private collections and other places, that defy explanation from ordinary scientific viewpoints: Forbidden archeology. It is about man made artefacts, often found in layers of rock that are millions of years old. Not only spear points and mortars, but also art works and recognisable, modern looking stuff.
Micheal Cremo says that many scientists deliberately lie about or neglect these artefacts, because they don’t fit in their picture. The book is very expensive, but I was so happy to borrow the copy of Marcel Ruyters for a while. It is amazing that works like these can stay unnoticed, or are burnt down, in the media and at universities. Micheal Cremo has a web site, here, and if you try Google you can easily find more information about him and his work.
Here is one of the many videos on YouTube tagged with Micheal Cremo:

And here and here are two sites with more info on this strange topic.
(The paintings on this page are made by Theo himself by the way. I downloaded them from his website.)
