...this book, as well as "Forbidden Archaeology", can also well taken as example how schience works - or may work too. The archaeologist commenting below, would be more credible by 1.) providing us with a name 2.) instead of feeling insulted at first instance, reading some good books on philosophy of science. One good start could be Paul Feyerabend for example.
Apart from few examples, Cremo does not accuse Scientists of conscious crude forgery, but speaks mostly of a sublime and often subconcious "knowledge filter". Scientists are humans and making a career in archaeology or palaeoanthropology is far more than pure science. The air (jobs) is thin in the relatively small community and making career involves a lot of politics - which nowadays every person working at an university or similar institution should frankly admit. THIS is what Cremo speaks out and tries to establish as "knowledge filter"...

The problem with the scientific method is that it is driven far too much by theory, and not enough by fact. By which I mean that science moves forward by the development, and subsequent testing, of hypotheses, when at times formation of hypotheses should be strenuously avoided-- because they grow into filters which taint otherwise vital and compelling data.
Science is not comfortable with unknowns. (You thought nature abhorred a vaccuum? Nature's got nothing on science.) So rather than leave a question unanswered (e.g., "How old is mankind?"), science tends to fill in the vaccuum by providing an answer, based on the theory that can obtain the greatest consensus.
The problem arises when these theories and hypotheses become mental constructs-- it is a short hop in the collective consciousness from "the theory supported by the most scientists" to "scientific fact". New data that falls outside these constructs (that is, data which "flies in the face of accepted scientific wisdom!") are assumed to be anomolous, and are tossed aside; data that supports, fits the constructs is sought out and embraced.
Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes often described his detection method as scrupulously collecting facts, while AVOIDING the formation of theories. Keep collecting facts-- without the blind spots imposed by hypotheses-- until you have ruled out all possibilities but one. That remaining possibility, no matter how improbable, is the one true possibility.
I think Cremo has been a bit dramatic in characterizing science as conspiratorial, and it is understandable how the anthropologist (below) could take umbrage.

I am not writing this review to insult the intelligence or creativity of Cremo or the numbers of individuals who are drawn by the romance of the "underdog" or the "conspiracy." As an anthropologist myself, I understand the value of comprehending the variety of worldviews that exist and bringing this diversity to the attention of the public. I enjoy scientific discourse, and would welcome the addition of legitimate arguements on the subject of human origins. I take issue, however, with the assertion by Cremo that there is some sort of grand conspiracy to conceal and pervert information about human origins. As an archaeologist currently conducting research, I am somewhat insulted at the accusation that I am fabricating or concealing data. I have always endeavored (I believe successfully) to conduct my research in a responsible, straightforward, and honest fashion; I know that Cremo could not prove differently. The final note in this short tirade is this: if the President of the United States could not keep his zipper problem a secret, HOW on earth could a motley, ununified and argumentative group like we archaeologists conspire to conceal such grand discoveries, which, according to Cremo are frequent occurences. Please. I will be frankly honest, we are not capable of such a smooth, seamless execution of conspiracy, If you get more than a few archaeologists in a room together, you are bound to have a heated debate, more than that and there may be blood spilled. We are people just like anyone else. We do not want to hide things from the public. Truly, my interest, and those of many of my colleagues, is to achieve a greater understanding of humanity, both past and present.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Von Ein Kunde am 30. August 1998
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"A reader, August 23, 1998" writes in his review exactly what you might expect from people who are (to say the least) not open for new insights and ideas. "while the real scientists are busy..." ==> busy doing what?! Busy hiding from revolutionary ideas that's a threat to what they were taught? REAL scientists would jump on the challenge thrown at them to look into the fascinating world they had closed their eyes for. It's (seemingly) far-fetched ideas that can mean breakthroughs and revolutions in what we know about the world's history.
So don't let yourself be put off by such narrowminded disregarding and open up. Maybe there's a whole lot more than what we have been taught to believe...
