Archaeology

This ancient Babylonian tablet may contain the first evidence of trigonometry

By Ron CowenAug. 24, 2017 , 2:00 PM

Trigonometry, the study of the lengths and angles of triangles, sends most modern high schoolers scurrying to their cellphones to look up angles, sines, and cosines. Now, a fresh look at a 3700-year-old clay tablet suggests that Babylonian mathematicians not only developed the first trig table, beating the Greeks to the punch by more than 1000 years, but that they also figured out an entirely new way to look at the subject. However, other experts on the clay tablet, known as Plimpton 322 (P322), say the new work is speculative at best.

The suppression of knowledge by establishment academics

By NaturalNews Editors: (NaturalNews) One of the reasons I criticize academics has been my experience in their suppression of knowledge. I used to fund important archaeological excavations that could further our knowledge of history. The First Gulf War bombing uncovered a ancient city nobody had known about in the desert of Iraq. Ancient cities contained libraries where everything was stored including court cases and disputes.
