Ancient China Astronomy and Evidence

In past centuries and decades, persons trained in the law have left too much of the study of ancient history to academics not trained in the analysis of evidence, and this has led to many historical errors in the mainstream humanities, which rely more on the alleged academic authority of their gurus rather than on what the evidence actually provides. Among these failings are a near total failure by mainstream historians of astronomy and archaeologists (including Egyptologists, Assyriologists and Biblical Scholars) to recognize that ancient man was versed in astronomy - as the evidence clearly indicates. This has led to a complete and total misunderstanding of the role played by rock drawings and megalithic sites as astronomically sighted (and sited) landmarks and borders.

The Xinhua News Agency has now reported on August 16, 2006 that a Neolithic stone carving of the stellar constellation of the "Big Dipper" (Ursa Major) has been discovered in China on Baimiaozi Mountain near Chifeng City in China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

"Neolithic Stone Carving of Big Dipper Discovered 2006-08-17 11:16:01 Xinhua News Agency

A neolithic stone carving of the Big Dipper star formation has been found on Baimiaozi Mountain near Chifeng City in northwest China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, according to experts.
The stone carving was discovered by Wu Jiacai, a 50-year-old researcher in literature and history with Wongniute Banner of Inner Mongolia. Wu found a large yam-shaped stone, 310 centimeters long, onto which 19 stars had been carved. The representation of the Big Dipper is on the north face of the stone. The stars are represented by indentations in the stone. The biggest indentation is 6 centimeters in diameter and 5 centimeters deep, said Wu. "The stone was carved by neolithic dwellers," said Gai Shanlin, researcher with the Inner Mongolia Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology (IMICRA) and an expert in stone carving. The carving style proves this, said Gai. Astronomers' conjectures about the shape of the Big Dipper some ten thousand years ago also match the carving.

"Finding a stone carving in China‘s desert hinterland is a rare occurrence," said Tala, director of IMICRA, who said it might help prove how ancient celestial bodies evolved.
Apart from the Big Dipper, Wu also found some "unexplained images" on the stone. He thinks they may depict ancient gods, such as the god of the sun and the god of horses. Further study would be needed to determine when the pictures were painted. Many neolithic jade articles from the Hongshan Culture -- such as a dragon with a pig's mouth and a cloud-shaped pendant -- have already been unearthed around Baimiaozi Mountain. The Hongshan Culture was an aboriginal culture that existed in northern China about 6000 years ago. Tala believes the discovery will contribute to knowledge about the origin and spread of Hongshan Culture. (Xinhua News Agency August 16, 2006)"

This discovery fits in with the ancient hermetic system of land survey by astronomy discovered by Andis Kaulins, also in China - at the Great Wall of China.

There it is shown that the Great Wall of China marks the Milky Way as the Dragon of Heaven (e.g. Yumen marks Gemini at the West end of the Great Wall whereas Shanhaikuan and this region of China mark the Head of the Azure Dragon (Tang Shay) in the East).

Baimiaozi Mountain near Chifeng City in China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region is located near the area where the eastern part of the Great Wall of China ends and many other ancient artefacts have been found in this region.

As we write in our book, this is ALL ancient astronomy, and we are glad to see that at least Chinese astronomers and archaeologists have recognized that cupmarks on rock drawings mark stars of the sky, as we have alleged all along for years. Perhaps the Chinese academics can get their Western colleagues to wake up.
