One of the worst pieces of reasoning I have seen in a while…. almost as bad as that recent stupid piece in TIME about the new translation .
Get a load of this, from the Telegraph.
First homosexual caveman found
Archaeologists have unearthed the 5,000-year-old remains of what they believe may have been the world’s oldest known gay caveman.
The male body – said to date back to between 2900-2500BC – was discovered buried in a way normally reserved only for women of the Corded Ware culture in the Copper Age.
The skeleton was found in a Prague suburb in the Czech Republic with its head pointing eastwards and surrounded by domestic jugs, rituals only previously seen in female graves.
“From history and ethnology, we know that people from this period took funeral rites very seriously so it is highly unlikely that this positioning was a mistake,” said lead archaeologist Kamila Remisova Vesinova.
“Far more likely is that he was a man with a different sexual orientation, homosexual or transsexual,” she added.
A male body is found in a grave pit with females, and doesn’t have the usual man stuff around him, therefore he has to have been a homosexual. The noble enlightened primitives respected Glak’s wishes and buried him as a female.
There’s good archeology for ya.
I have other explanations.
- There were lots of deaths at the time and Glak’s tribe did, in fact, make a mistake.
- They were hiding the true location of Glak’s burial for some reason.
- They hated Glak and wanted to humiliate him in the eternal Mammoth Hunting Ground.
