Michael A. Cremo
Historian of Archeology

Over the past two centuries, archaeologists have found bones, footprints, and artifacts showing that people like ourselves have existed on earth for many millions of years. But many scientists have forgotten or ignored these remarkable facts. Why? Primarily because they contradict the now dominant evolutionary views about human origins and antiquity. According to these views, humans like ourselves have existed for only about 100,000 or 200,000 years, and before that there were only more primitive human ancestors. This evolutionary paradigm, to which influential groups of scientists are deeply committed, has acted as a “knowledge filter.” And the filtering, intentional or not, has left us with a radically incomplete set of facts for building our ideas about human origins. Recovering the complete set of facts takes us on a fascinating expedition, across five continents to various archaeological sites, some long forgotten, some the center of ongoing controversy. On the other hand, the complete set of facts is consistent with the accounts of extreme human antiquity found in the Puranas, the historical writings of ancient India.

Michael A. Cremo is research associate in history of archeology. He is a member of the World Archaeological Congress (WAC) since 1993. His WAC3 paper “Puranic Time and the Archaeological Record” was published in the Routledge One World Archaeology series volume Time and Archaeology (1999), edited by Tim Murray. He is also a member of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA). In 2004 Cremo’s paper “The Later Discoveries of Boucher de Perthes at Moulin Quignon and Their Impact on the Moulin Quignon Jaw Controversy,” presented at the XXth International Congress for History of Science, Liege, Belgium, was published in a conference proceedings volume of this congress, by the scientific publisher Brepols.

Cremo is the principal author of the book Forbidden Archeology, a comprehensive historical survey of archaeological anomalies. In a review in British Journal for History of Science, Tim Murray said the book “provides the historian of archaeology with a useful compendium of case studies in the history and sociology of scientific knowledge, which can be used to foster debate within archaeology about how to describe the epistemology of one’s discipline.”

Cremo is particularly interested in examining the history of the archeology from the standpoint of alternative worldviews, particularly worldviews with foundations in ancient Indian thought. He has given invited lectures on his work at the Royal Institution in London, the anthropology department of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, the archeology department of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, and many other scientific institutions. He has also lectured on his work at universities throughout the world.


  1. The reason we find human presences in old layers is because our history and these layers are only a few thousand years old. There is no way to get or even guess close to any date for anything. This is not science and poor archaeology.

  2. this guy is annoyingly arrogant. dont ask me why

  3. This man is obviously dead

  4. We only scrape the surface of man's real history because of all the religious dogmas that we are governed by until this year 2019.
    Actually, we're pretty ridiculous!

  5. Okay, so how do we know they weren't Orc?..

  6. This guy's putting me to sleep…geez come on, get to the point. Dont eant to hear about your contemporaries opinions, views or affirmations.

  7. Christ he is so boring and hard to listen to. And what’s with the grunting ?

  8. Strange man. Strange sounds. How does he make a living?

  9. Shapeshifting mouth farting koala

  10. Dammit stop farting through your sinuses!

  11. If it comes from google it's all bullshit…sorry..but you can't trust them, end of discussion..

  12. Main stream science is wrong again! They are as bad as the main stream media outlets! Thanks for electing President Trump America! Best President in History! Vote Republican! Democrats are Lying Thieves! They have no desire to solve problems and/or help poor Americans. They just what Bigger Government in order to ruin the USA! Don’t be a whiny snowflake! Vote Republican… let’s get the Democrats out of our political institutions and academics! Re-elect President Trump in 2020! He will make your future GREAT! Socialists will destroy America. Do your homework! Wake Up!!!

  13. It sounds like to me about 5000 years ago there was a great flood that destroyed the world as they knew it things were buried in strata bones in artifacts the definition of science is the prove the Bible wrong in the story Shane destroy the Earth and it will happen again

  14. I REALLY want to listen to the whole thing.. but….he… speaks…. so… … slow…ly. and that vocal tick is CRAZY DISTRACTING!

  15. better at 1.5 speed,,thanks for sharing,never STOP loving,,xxx I THINK HE SHOULD WRITE A BOOK maybe,xx

  16. Like the presentation the fact that all this is driven not by science but a strange wish to validate ancient Indian literature which can not be reliably shown to be more than a few thousand years old is not the end of it but, someone using this method questioning other people's scientific validity rather undermines their position and god told me as their best evidence is evidence for following what ever flight of fancy you wish to follow without applying any sensible level of scepticism.

    Cremo's evidence, God told me and scientific papers that are so old that it is almost impossible to get any hard evidence from them. Interesting ideas but nothing very compelling to make the case just the exceptions that lack hard data. There must be a percentage of papers that are crap in any scientific discipline so what percentage of CREMO'S SITED PAPERS FALL INTO THAT category?

  17. Not a very strong speaker. And when you're not a very strong speaker and you do not articulate complete and coherent ideas and concepts, you lose the audience that you might have gained, and end up speaking only to believers. Answer the questions without promoting your books. At 45:30 when you answer the lady with "good question, I'm writing a book to answer it…" is kind of lame.

  18. Try the tablets of thoth……..
    From monkey to man?????
    I'm no idiot.
    But a minority of people love to control others……

  19. theres plenty of evidence for any one to come th the conclusion we've done this shit before man is self destructive hole world societies have come and gone all you have to do is have a look around ' all science to day is is bought and payed for by those that want the results their looking for . gate keepers of knowledge and it in their of own nutritive. control is the game and form the beginning recorded time . in other words common sense would tell you this talk is pointless . everything you know to days i a out right lie.

  20. Krishna consiousness?! No thanks…

  21. While I appreciate the debate of our preconceptions of “fact”, I feel as if the majority of fraudulent and misrepresented archeological discoveries came out of the mid-late 19th century, consistently. So, It shouldn’t surprise anyone there is little to no modern evidence to back a theory like this up. And just saying….discrediting modern dating methods is a terrible way to make your point. Sorry

  22. when you eliminate "millions" of years old, you can start to make sense. evolution is a very racist theory. Its time to put Darwin to rest!! There was a flood……

  23. Cremo is laid back and matter of fact. Very cool. Some of the whiz kids at Google seem a little sketchy.

  24. Main stream scientists say, "THIS is the truth & we will only accept any evidence that supports it.
    If anything turns up outside what we say the truth is, then either it is an error, is a lie or we'll hide it from the public."
    Truth seeking scientist say, "here is something we found, what does it mean?" & build a story of truth based on lots & lots of overwhelming findings as evidence!
    I as, what is it that mainstream is keeping from the public? We will put down & discredit anyone going against what we tell you is the truth!"
    What don't they want us to know?
    Or are they really that errogant & stupid & greedy? ?

  25. if you can control time you can control everything … patiently safeguarding knowledge and intermittently resetting civilization

  26. Liked the fart noises he made

  27. just wondering how many genders have they found exist/existed? it's not nice to fool with Mother Nature, she'll Prove you the fool every time…

  28. The skeleton they found 90 ft deep; either it’s really that old or his wife really wanted him out of her life.

  29. He talks a lot and doesn’t sound like his got a bad throat so what’s with all the stupid little coughs

  30. History as we know it as taught in schools is a lie and was created during the Reformation period headed by the Jesuits who want to deny the origins and history of our world because there once existed a highly conscious world civilisation that lived in peace and harmony. There has been a reset and retelling of a fake history to maintain the Jesuit agenda. The whole world is a victim.

  31. Fuck off go away I don’t like this vid

  32. 2:22 love this caveat it warmed my heart, carry on.

  33. They have now done something to the audio.
    Sped up, it is distorted now.
    They are jerks.

  34. If we find that both ourselves and also many of our food crops have been gene spliced by some as yet not fully confirmed or understood method – then surely ALL possible explanations as to why both ourselves and many of our food crops have been gene spliced must NOT be dismissed.

    Hence there is a possibility or slim possibility the most plausible explanation for why we have fossilized evidence of modern humans showing up in a non-linear timeline all over the place could be because humans are both a product of evolution and also genetic manipulation by various advanced technological entities who do not leave their fossilized remains here because they are predominantly spacecraft dwellers from elsewhere who periodically visit here for projects of which they need labor?

  35. The current fields of Anthropology and Archaeology are a complete fabrication that at their very foundation, conform to false assumptions. They think the truth is ridiculous!

  36. he is not a f""""ng marxist, isn`t he?

  37. 45:00 a good question and i am writing a book to answer it. After he explained a couple minutes, what audience would accept the answer. Hilarious

  38. Anyone who watches this and argues against it can leave their ego at the front door or gtfo

  39. Field people be like: thumbs down. Guy prabably doesnt own a pair of muddy shoes.

  40. Highly SUSPICIOUS that Google simultaneously reinforces mainstream bullshit and ironically portrays and twists words around Forbidden Archeology while being so incredibly dull and unconvincing.
    Google loves to muddy TRUTH.
    Fuck Google

  41. Has this guy ever listened to himself speak? My god he speaks slow and monotone. Even computer generated voices sound more interesting and less monotone.

  42. @26:00 it's either that they are over 4 million years old OR, contrary to popular belief, the method of dating is actually inaccurate.

  43. This is a perfect lecture when you can't fall asleep, 10 minutes in and my eyelids getting heavy😏

  44. When ever some one mentiones millions of years, they are saying the Bible is wrong. I trust the Bible more than this guy.

  45. Fuck you!!! Ignorant piece of shit!!! Fucking dope spells!!! You KNOW US NOT!!!

  46. I've believed for some time now that we will reach a point when we will conclude or admit that the "scientific" dating methods currently used are wrong and there will have to be a re-calibration of them. Millions of years will turn into thousands of years and the whole theory of evolution will have to be abandoned.

  47. What's with the constant snorting? It's highly distracting and makes it harder to take him seriously.

  48. It seems highly probable that archaeological evidence has been purposely ignored. Is it possible that geneticists are misinterpreting data? I am completely unqualified to answer that question. Don't know!

  49. Dreaming of the day when everyone will put a bullet in you grave.desecrating robbing parasites.

  50. Sorry man, lost seriousness when I heard "International Soc. for Krishna Consciousness". When your motivations/conclusions are not subject to scientific scrutiny by the larger academic field you've lost my trust & interest. Hasn't anyone hinted to you that religion & science oppose one another ? Mythology is just that nothing more. Allegory has always piqued human interest, so it gets repeated. Your claim to fame seems to be reputable scientists have written scathing reviews of my work so it must warrant merit. Catchy title though, I'll give you that. Any science is based on theory which is constantly in flux. Making statements about a whole field's supposed "beliefs" or Biases is a untenable stance. But relabeling someone else's finding's A.D. or any other time is a crime & brings into question that museum's integrity. So good point there. The modern scientific world welcomes scrutiny & new approaches/ideas. The Old Boy club died a long time ago, you can only kick that dog so long. One last thing personally I've never met one w/strong religious leanings that didn't also have a conspiracy complex as well. Drop it from your next lecture. Admit your a evangelist & embrace it ! Your audience will appreciate it.

  51. academia is as bad as the main stream media when it comes to being motivated by something other than the truth. archeology and anthropology seem especially bad in their arrogance and inaccuracy. the evidence is mounting for different theories and paradigms that are contrary to current theories. but academia's reputations and jobs hang in the balance so publishing papers on topics that contradict current theories and paradigms don't get promoted. this all makes higher education more about indoctrination than education.

  52. I am left with 3 profound thoughts, the first and obvious is Hamlets line : “There are more things in heaven and earth,Horacio.The second is a quote,”Specialist without spirit and sensualist without heart , “.Max Weber raised this concept regarding the rational system controlling human endeavour as opposed to the system serving the subject.That droll world of bureaucracy. The iron cage of bureaucracy has permeated the corridors of the academic community and thus its findings are affected. Finally the last quote from my faith which informs my world view.
    King James Bible,but though,O Daniel,shut up the words,and seal the book ,even to the time of the end:many shall run to and fro ,and knowledge shall be increased.

  53. This guy is sucks , info is good but OMG he puts me to sleep with his lame ass voice

  54. BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Google, please import the Indian Engineer without the lunatic part. This is bloody idiotic. CONSPIRACY THEORY! CENSOR! CENSOR! DEMONETIZE!

  55. Evolution is a fact, it's not a theory, evolution is true, evolution is real, evolution is undeniable, evolution is complete. The rest is either: deception due to the difficulty of nihilism, that is, living with no purpose or reason in a sometime cruel life (purposeful deception often by religion also used to control people), or the ego deception where the mind will believe anything no matter how fantastical if it gets what it wishes to be true – eternal life.

  56. Please Indian people, please keep your idiotic superstitions in India. No need to import any more voodoo, we need to get rid of the shit already here.

  57. Wow! Thank you Michael Cremo for all of your research! I love what you have brought to light.

  58. It's high time to ditch Darwin's theory of evolution. I am convinced civilizations are far more ancient than is currently taught. I resent the suppression of ANY discoveries/knowledge by academics! I will make up my own mind…I am not an idiot.

  59. Great lecture. (Hint: I listened at 1.25speed which helps for me.) Amazing how this person can talk for an hour without cue cards and give a great talk. Hardly missed a beat.

  60. Velikovsky reported many examples of human artifacts in ancient formations in Earth in Upheaval. His treatment was abysmal despite multiple correct predictions: radio emissions from Jupiter, a hot young Venus, remnant magnetism on the moon. Don't challenge the establishment.

  61. One big ass infomercial about him.

  62. The sad fucking truth of the matter is that all information about "anything and everthing" has been [deliberately] so miskewed [ by who knows what or who?] that there is little or no way [or hope] of ever gleaning, and thus, or really knowing the truth about anything. I, therefore, based on this rather easily refutable irrefutable fact, declare the entire content of this video to be nothing more than unsubstantiated, though somewhat cleverly intellectualized bullshit.

  63. Anyone remember the droopy dawg cartoons?

  64. Just ordered the book in hardcover. I will keep it in a fireproof safe so this information isn't lost.

  65. This guy has the evidence to back up most of his claims.It is a shame that he is not taken seriously.The next generation has to change this.Facts are conflicting with the false data in the books.This also is claimed in the alien interview transscripts humans have been here for hundreds of millions of years.It seems like there is no holes in the 5 hour interview but evolution can not just happen,it is genetic minipulation by intelligent life ,computers,and technology we dont understand is how biological life was created.

  66. I agree that there may be evidence of older civilization. However, what the hell does that have to do with spiritual or religious belief. The findings, in regard to real dating methods used on these artifacts that were buried, should stand on their own merit apart from religion if in fact they are truly scientific. I have the feeling that this guy is into a bunch of religious mumbo-jumbo.

  67. I find it both staggering & amusing how many people oppose a Human origin ‘theory’ that, to me at least, is staggeringly obvious.

    However, I respect & appreciate that not everyone can be that open-minded & I guess some feel the need to cling on to something a little more ‘down-to-earth’. What am I talking about? Two words: Enki and Enlil – Stick it in to the YouTube Search & enjoy! 😉 To me, it’s both the simplest & most obvious ‘theory’ to explain our origins 🙏🏼

  68. Vain speeches and crazy year figures. Foolishness…GOD IS REAL

  69. Any1 can see why the so called " scientific comunnity" don't want the truth to come out…caise there is pretige money and couriers on the line…its far mpre convient to cpntonue to make peiple believe a tgeory with seroiu2 loo wholes than to renounuce to the bennefits they will loose if they admit they are wrong in their theory and that it can be proven and also mever mind the fact that the bible is right…how stupod will.the y look!!

  70. No one can claim or prove 'hundreds of thousands' let alone 'millions' of years. That's a fact. Nothing is to be trusted at face value. Monotone delivery. We've been around forever and will be.

  71. If u look just 50 years ago when they thought humans started walking upright and when they thought we were hunter gatherers and when we started have lager cultured society's the scientific community keeps pushing the dates further back and I believe that in another 50 years the community as a whole will keep pushing the dates back further not just a few people pushing the dates now.

  72. What "they" don't want us lambs to know is that homo sapiens have risen in technological societies, destroyed themselves time & time again (more rarely been destroyed by outside forces) for millions of years. We are for the most part more stupid (willfully ignorant) & ready for slaughter once again. The meek shall inherit the Earth & the clock ticks its first tock (according to the new homo sapiens). We are a species with an amnesiac motherboard.

  73. Any methodical review of literature like this is valuable. Lending credence to the fantastic accounts of ancient texts of the Brahmans and Jains as literally true is no less scientifically questionable than giving equal credence to literalist interpretations of fundamentalist Christianity. Uranium dating does not tell you when a pre-existing rock was carved. The methodical presentation of arguments is very good, though. Hopefully this is found worth presenting methodical counter-arguments.

  74. It couldn't possibly be that your timeline and DATING METHODS are wrong, right? Couldn't be that the whole rock layer theory is incorrect, right? Nooooo, of course not.

  75. 54:30 I will start sending my resume to Google. Seems like any idiot can get in.

  76. My personal belief is we as a species are still in our infancy I say this based on my own opinion because the mind set that is still predominate throughout society still seems very narcissistic and paranoid also the imagination still seems to be far superior to what is achievable in science and technology I think the best of our evolution is still sometime away just my opinion.

  77. AND SO WE ARE TOLD ( By the experts ? ? 😕) all human current life, homo sapiens, emanated from Africa ? Yet in a short period of time in historical terms some black Africans had left Africa, trecked to Europe and eventually became white – in generally accepted terms – with straight hair and average sized lips. And what about the Neanderthals, another European human type race. They didnt come from Africa. Some people today are known to have Neanderthal genes. Europe then eventually went from strength to strength. Whilst our ALLEGED genetically identical ancestors in Africa, still visually and intellectually worlds apart, made little progress and in modern historical times, still lived as primitive tribes and living in mud huts. I DONT BUY THE ' EXPERTS ' ACCOUNT OF HUMAN ORIGINS. It all sounds a little too politically correct to me.

  78. Everytime I posted topic about Michael Cremo on FB, I got attacked by scientific community trolls and being called nutjob and need medication, it's not unusual to get this treatment by systematic name calling, obviously Michael Cremo speaks a lot of truth.


  80. Finally, someone with a brain that uses it for finding truth and not only deception !

  81. Couldn’t listen to him, just couldn’t. Snorting and his dull but imperious nasal voice. I just couldn’t. Plus all his self aggrandizing. Just get to the point.

  82. He doesn't offer concrete information about anything.  He says he should be listened to, because he has been invited to speak at prestigious scientific meetings.  I don't think I'm unique to say that when I speak, I want more than just to be allowed to speak.  I want to be believed.

  83. Alien ""humans"" may have started life on Earth and may have been here FROM THE START. Terra forming I think it's called. Like we'll do on Mars. with air and water. Trump said just before he took office – ""EVERYTHING HAS BEEN A LIE "".

  84. What if there is one source for all the motions and movements in the universe? This is the common key into understanding our consciousness and uncovering the underlying mechanism of our reality. Here's a kickstarter campaign that goes into this: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/568849833/our-reality-a-new-way-to-look-at-the-universe-and-ourselves?ref=project_build#
