New Theory that Ancient Eyptians discovered New Zealand + Australia
Egyptians, Greeks came to New Zealand first - book
PALOMA MIGONE
Last updated 07:10 23/03/2012


Captain James Cook and Abel Tasman could lose their place in history as the first Europeans to reach New Zealand.

A controversial book, To the End of the Earth, claims to contain evidence that Greeks, Spanish and Egyptians settled in New Zealand long before the Maori people.

The 378-page book, to be released this weekend, was co-authored by researchers Maxwell C Hill, Gary Cook and Noel Hilliam.

It shows ancient maps drawn before the birth of Christ, which the authors said detail the coastlines of Australia and New Zealand.

Skeletons, rock carvings, stone buildings and monuments all attest to people of European origin living in New Zealand for centuries before the arrival of Polynesians, they said.

The artefacts include a rock carving of an ancient Greek ship found in Taupo, a stone pillar with an accurate coastal map of New Zealand showing Lake Taupo in its pre-232AD eruption shape, and carvings on rocks at Raglan.

Hill said a huge boulder weighing several tonnes, deeply cut into a huge circular star calendar and marked with what were believed to be figures and rebuses, was the most stunning find.

He said there was also evidence that showed Maui was not the legendary Maori god-explorer, but an actual Egyptian naval navigator, who steered a flotilla of Greek ships to discover new shores, Hill said.

The book quotes Professor Barry Fell, of Harvard University in the US, who interpreted graffiti drawn on limestone in caves at McCluer Bay, on the coast of Indonesia.

Hill said Fell's find names Maui as a navigator from the Red Sea under the flag of Ptolemy III in 232BC.

A cave inscription near Santiago, Chile also shows the Maori god-explorer was an Egyptian navigator, saying the point was "the southern limit of the coast reached by Maui," Hill said.

It is becoming increasingly more obvious that ancient peoples circumnavigated the earth with ease and precision. Commonalities in architecture, hieroglyphic characters, arts, sciences, languages, maps, rituals and myths are all indicative of a global communications network, world travel and shared knowledge. Our true history has been erased and systematically re-written, begging the question by whom and for what purpose?

Anything Noel Hilliam is involved with is sure to be out-and-out crankery.

The truth could come out in DNA testing. Even the maoris do not know exactly where they came from. Only Hawaiki.It is not in their interest to admit that other people lived in NZ before them.

eg. regarding Neanderthals...

Neanderthal DNA sequences were found to be about 99.5% similar to the modern human genome, indicating that modern humans and Neanderthals had a common ancestor about 700,000 years ago. The genetic difference between Neanderthals and modern humans, however, was on average about three times greater than the genetic difference between any two modern humans. Studies of the mtDNA of nearly 80,000 people found no traces of mutations known to be common in Neanderthal mtDNA. These differences indicate no significant interbreeding between Neanderthals and modern humans after the two species diverged.
 Quoting: [link to www.ornl.gov]


...and European migration...

roughly 70% of English men, 95% of Spanish men, and 95% of Irish men have a distinctive Y-chromosome mutation known as M173. The distribution of people with this mutation, in conjunction with other DNA analyses, indicates that the men's ancestors moved north out of Spain into England and Ireland at the end of the last ice age.

Re: New Theory that Ancient Eyptians discovered New Zealand + Australia
How I hate the word Neanderthal because of how they were portrayed as half human and half monkey. I believe that they were a race of humans that were just as clever if not more clever than their nieghbours. Every race of people on this planet has different characteristics in scull shape and skin color.
