DISCOVER: Archeologists have discovered thousands of stone tools in Texas that are over 15,000 years old. The find is important because it is over 2,000 years older than the so-called Clovis culture, which had previously thought to be the first human culture in North America. As Texas A&M University anthropologist Michael Waters says, “This is almost like a baseball bat to the side of the head of the archaeological community to wake up and say, ‘hey, there are pre-Clovis people here, that we have to stop quibbling and we need to develop a new model for peopling of the Americas’.”

Tracking Clovis culture suggests that the first Americans came from approximately Paris.
I suspect these “Freedom Flints” are fakes, planted by embarrassed Texans.

As someone who is part Native American, I’m interested in hearing more about this story. The article claims they have not used radiocarbon dating on the artifacts, so I hope they publish the findings on the radiocarbon dating as well.

Sounds to me like an early bunch of those ignorant ‘low tech’ Mexican aliens Republicans are always complaining about sneaking across the border. It’s about time this madness ended, 15,000 years is quite long enough. I say, dig ‘em all up and ship them back where they came from.
