The LexiLine Journal is the graphic-enhanced version of the otherwise text-only Lexiline Newsletter.
Postings have been backdated to correspond to the comparable posting at the Lexiline Newsletter. The text-only postings are adapted in various ways to conform to this new graphic format and are not necessarily identical with the text-only presentation.
The LexiLine Journal is focused on new developments and discoveries in the study of the history of civilization, including language, culture, genetics and technology. Special emphasis is given to the astronomy of ancient peoples as found on megalithic sites.
EXAMPLES OF DISCOVERIES FIRST PUBLISHED IN LEXILINE
The LexiLine Newsletter, which is older than the Lexiline Journal, through the original postings of Andis Kaulins, was the first to show how the Neolithic megaliths and sites of Ancient Britain (Scotland, England, Wales) and Ireland mark stars and stellar constellations on Earth.
CORRECTIONS TO MAINSTREAM HISTORY
Our decipherments of megalithic sites raise serious questions about the accuracy and reliability of mainstream historical teachings.
One source for such historical error is explained by applied cognitive psychology, where psychologists study and describe how the human mind chronologically dates events which have occurred in the past. Numerous studies show that events which are subjectively seen by humans as "familiar" are dated forward in time from the actual date - and those which are subjectively seen as "not familiar" are dated backward in time from the actual date.
Applied by us to the history of civilization, we find that anthropologists, for example, generally date new finds FAR BACK in time - such finds relate to a non-familiar event - BUT this dating seems to conflict with genetic dating of human DNA, which objectively dates "humanity" far less back in time. This discrepancy in dating is explained through applied cognitive psychology as "cognitive error".
Similarly, an allegedly familiar event - such as the origin of writing - is dated FORWARD as a "familiar" event. It was once thought that writing began in Europe with the Greeks and Cadmos, whereas modern studies keep pushing this date for the origin of writing, also in Europe, further and further back.
It is thus regrettable but not surprising, that in astronomy as well, ancient astronomical evidence is more or less ignored if it surfaces prior to Hipparchus and Ptolemy.
Also in ancient studies, Egyptologists and Near Eastern scholars more or less summarily reject evidence of preceding cultures outside of their own areas of study and beyond the time frames they establish. The resulting history is thus not only flawed, it is downright wrong.
The history of language fares no better and most modern linguists of Indo-European e.g. know nothing beyond ancient Greek. This cognitive error by mainstream scholars is a major focus of our research.
HISTORY OF THE LEXILINE JOURNAL AND NEWSLETTER
The LexiLine Journal and the LexiLine Newsletter trace their origins back to 1997 when Andis Kaulins started a discussion list on ancient cultures at the suggestion of Patrick Ryan. That list was named ACE-LIST (Ancient Cultures Explored) and was renamed the LexiLine List in 1999 as a discussion forum for the History of Civilization. The new name was based on the Greek term LEXIS meaning "word, speech" - human speech being a main pillar of human civilization.
After thousands of postings from 1997 to Easter 2002, and due to significant major megalithic and archaeoastronomical discoveries by Andis Kaulins, who publishes LexiLine, a need was seen to formalize the original discussion list into a newsletter, thus permitting appropriate presentation of materials to both list members as well as to the public.
The LexiLine Journal was founded in 2005 to present the LexiLine Newsletter postings with graphic enhancements.
[Update September 8, 2002]
I am posting herewith some letters written by a member of the LexiLine List, Ainsley Broussard Dunn (and my replies to them). In all the 30 years that I have been working in this field, Ainsley's comments are among the most gratifying I have ever received. Based on my own view of what I do, Ainsley understands perfectly what the
purposes of LexiLine are.
...in response to the removal of non e-mail members...

Well, I for one thoroughly find your emails informative and educational. I
would consider it a great loss in my continuing
enlightenment were I not to
receive these emails.
Please keep'em coming.
Ainsley Broussard Dunn
Thank you.... May I post your above e-mail to the LexiLine list?

Of course you may post it wherever you think it will be of benefit. I did not want to be too chatty in my first email. So I kept it short and to the point. Please allow me to expand my comments somewhat.
I am 53 years old and finished college in 1974. My major was in History, but I have always had something of a "rebellious" streak. I ask questions. I wonder why. I am not satisfied with the sciences, archeology, paleontology or history as it has been offered to us by the "experts" the last one hundred years. I like those who dare to ask why and those also who go in search of the answers.
I hate to use the term "alternative", as that has too many negative conotations in our current society. However, Lexiline is bold, rebellious and dares to ask the hard questions. Your site seems unafraid to field some answers as well.
It is a great big world out there and is filled with many mysteries just waiting to be solved. Thanks for bringing that world into the lives of those of us who are unable to trek those paths in person. It is a great service you provide even as you expand the vision of each and everyone of us.

I was much intrigued in reading the above mentioned article where you stated ancient Hebrew and Egyptian blood/DNA appear to be more closely connected than one was given to think previously. Also, if I understand you correctly, you state these peoples' origins and relation to other groups is something of a mystery.
Could you please elaborate? This is a fascinating subject, as I have for years conducted my own personal, arm-chair research on the unique culture of ancient Egypt and also the pervasive writings of Jewish sages who claim something special for Hebrews among all other peoples. True, one can find peoples and cultures throughout history who thought of themselves as particularly favored by God/gods. However, giving Jewish writings the benefit of the doubt and that coupled with your remarks within the above titled article; I would appreciate your opening this subject further.
Ainsley Broussard Dunn
Thank you for your comments.
I will post some material on this soon.
[Update September 17, 2002]
One of our unserious members uploaded some "singles" materials to our files and I have deleted those files immediately upon becoming aware of them. The member has not only been removed from the list, but has also been banned from the list period.
My tolerance for idiots is zero - whether in academia or elsewhere. This reduces our potential membership to about 1 percent of humanity - but I think we will manage - that leaves 60 million potential members.
As a consequence, our list is no longer open, but restricted, and I will approve all future membership applications.
If you are not a serious member interested in the history of civilization, get off this list immediately. We do not need you and we do not want you.
For those of you who are serious members, "Glad to have you aboard".
