"The Skull Beneath Calaveras"~By Reverand Brenda Yeadon

Murphys, CA...This was sent to us by Reverand Brenda Yeadon of Murphys. She thought out viewers may have some interest in this story....."I have found that many people are uninformed about the historicity of our county’s name as it relates to the fossil skull that was unearthed in the late nineteenth century and which discovery caused a huge sensation across America. The following quote from The Hidden History of the Human Race, a book by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson, brings it home. There are more than a few familiar names such as Dr. Jones, as in Jones Street in Murphys.....


“In February 1866, Mr. Mattison, the owner of the mine on Bald Hill, near Angels Creek, removed a skull from a layer of gravel 130 feel below the surface. After finding the skull, Mattison later carried it to Mr. Scribner, an agent of Wells, Fargo and Co.’s Express at Angels. Mr. Scribner’s clerk, Mr. Matthews, cleaned off part of the incrustations covering most of the fossil. Upon recognizing that it was part of a human skull, he sent it to Dr. Jones, who lived in the nearby village of Murphy’s and was an enthusiastic collector of such items. Then Dr. Jones wrote to the office of the Geological Survey in San Francisco, and after receiving a reply, he forwarded the skull to this office, where it was examined by J. D. Whitney, the state geologist.”

On July 16, 1866 Whitney presented a report to the California Academy of Sciences affirming that the skull was found in Pliocene strata. Whitney was later scoffed at and the skull eventually became believed to be a source of hoax, thought by now to lay at rest. On behalf of the credibility of Mr. Whitney and in defense of truth itself, I dare to resurrect it. I argue that Whitneys’ report was never misrepresented and a thorough review of this finding coupled with other such discoveries on a global scale should convince the open-minded, truth seeking reader.

Whitney, along with several other reliable witnesses, testified that the skull itself evidenced having been taken from ancient, prehistoric strata. According to Whitney, the hoax accusations only surfaced AFTER his discovery was widely publicized in newspapers across the nation.

Whitney was no novice in geological studies. In 1939 he graduated from Yale University where he studied chemistry, mineralogy and astronomy. He then studied chemistry and geology in Europe. Whitney returned to the United States where he became a mining consultant. After over a decade of geological surveys, he was appointed the state geologist for California. Whitney held his position as professor of geology at Harvard for the rest of his life. Mount Whitney, the highest point in the continental United States, and the first confirmed glacier in the United States on Mount Shasta, were both named after him. Whitney was no “Wanna-be.”

The Calaveras skull is just one of many anomalous discoveries found in strata thought by evolutionists to be millions of years old. Altogether, miners found hundreds of stone implements – mortars, pestles, platters, grinders, and so forth. The scientific model of human development has been deliberately twisted by perpetrators who refuse to look at the real evidence in order to promote evolution. Anomalous and out-of-place discoveries include convincing evidence that humans date back to earliest geological times. Although unknown to most people, a vast amount of evidence exists which contradicts evolution. In their book, Cremo and Thompson give detailed account how this evidence has undergone an ongoing social process of knowledge filtration. A pattern of data suppression has been going on for a long time.

In opposition to J. D. Whitney’s 1880 publications documenting findings of advanced stone tools found in Calaveras and surrounding gold mines, W. H. Holmes, of the Smithsonian Institution, wrote: “Perhaps if Professor Whitney had fully appreciated the story of human evolution as it is understood today, he would have hesitated to announce the conclusions formulated.” In other words, if the facts do not agree with the favored theory then such facts…must be discarded. May the Calaveras skull and other credible evidences no longer rest in peace. Amen."

Reverend Brenda Yeadon, Murphys
