These finds would have demolished the narrative of the past 200 years, therefore they were frauds
It reminds me of the church elders refusing to look through Galileo's telescope ... or Dr. Zaius with Taylor at the end of PLANET OF THE APES ignoring a talking doll from the excavation of the ancient civilization.
One of the problems with the art from the dig here was that they had sensibilities that were just too "modern" to stomach. When people look at the bear muzzle on the wall of Lascaux in France, it resembles high quality linework like you might see in a Frazetta graphic comic book, except done with such exquisite precision it would have needed a Picasso behind it to draw.
People only compromise by claiming it must have been done by our ancestors but even then they remain uneasy at this lie because they know that the evidence shows their own kind were unlikely to display such sensitivity and keen enthusiasm for anything other than warfare, even now.
"Jacob" in Hebrew means "To plagiarize," "A Swindler," "Someone who stands on the shoulders of another," "Someone who claims something as their own which they have stolen," "Someone who is nothing without the work of another," "To usurp or take the place of the more worthy." A coincidence, to be sure.
"Esau" is "the good son," "strong solid man of the Earth," "a problem solver," "man of action," "a man of prowess and ability," "the original heir," and of course "man of arms," "great sinews," "a person who excels all others," "covered with hair all over," "the worthy one who was here before." A coincidence, to be sure.
What these ancient inflections in the words signify for us is that after tens of thousands of years of oral traditions preserving this metaphor of the two brothers, the basic qualities of the two brothers is information that has been preserved largely intact. Even 38,000 years after the genocide of these people, despite numerous attempts to paint it as a righteous act, we still hear echoes and implied aspects of the story that tell us it was not quite as we have been told to interpret the account in the modern era. The survivors knew something quite terrible had been done and to guess what is really being preserved here we need look no farther than the bones of male Neanderthals with teethmarks in them in campfires all over Europe.
One immediately thinks of the ancient legends of the ghoul who only acquires the knowledge of good and evil after consuming a conscience from the soul of the victim he cannibalizes. For a short while after his gruesome feast, he cries tears of guilt and has all the memories of those he has eaten. Then this fades and his basic nature returns which is perverse hunger. In this instance, the ghoul's memory seems to have persisted for 38,000 years after his meal.
P.S. Was just watching a soccer riot on YouTube somebody mailed me a link to and I was thinking how absolutely opposite in every way the people in the riot were from the people who painted the caves in Lascaux. Some guy was screaming at the top of his lungs and swinging off a light pole while throwing glass bottles of beer at passing cars. No way is there anybody in that guy's family tree who was at Lascaux. No way. That is science fiction. These are Jacob's children.
