Why I wish to join The Temple & how I found out about it...
I was looking at archaeological artifacts and stories in America, and a link brought me here. It appears to be organized around the things I am fascinated by. I do not accept the scientific explanations of things, I have to form my own ideas. I feel the scientific community is prone to ignore things that do not fit its theories as they are at present. I am interested in finding other people who are also willing to examine things/evidence without prejudice.
About Myself & My Interests..
I am fascinated by history, by geneology and the patterns of ancient mankind (as best as we can understand it) across the globe, migration patterns, archaeology discoveries, and now that I am older I am particularly interested in American discoveries and finding out how and when America became inhabited and by what ancient types of human beings and where those came from, and if any of the dna evidence offers support for theories advanced to explain those questions.
My Teachers & Influences, What was it about them that influenced me?
My Teacher encourages us to think for ourselves and never swallow popular ideas, popular belief systems, etc unless they support the evidence that is available. Their lives are examples of such methods of living, and the things they espouse they do in their daily lives so it is not theoretical musings; they do as they believe and believe as they act.
