Yes, Larry got around stark naked. And he lived in a

Would you believe, he was a school teacher. But he
wanted to escape the rat race, so Larry became a
cave man.

Cave man? Yes. I’m not kidding.

Larry is quite intelligent. (And his brother’s a Ph.D.)

In fact, I have met Cave Man Larry several times. He
lives just 27 miles from here.

But , how real were those other cave men?
You know, those ones we read about in school text

What do you think? Did they really chew rotten meat?
And grunt? And drag their women by the hair?

And ‘Stone Age’ men.

Who were they? Evolving primitives?

Are you sitting down? They were city folk forced to
live primitively after their civilization was
destroyed. That’s right. The evidence says so.

Do you want some clues?


Did you know that rock paintings in the caves of
Altamira, Lascaux, Ribadasella and others, are
masterpieces of art in any period. Their realism and
beauty are just as good as modern paintings!

They bear witness to a developed culture which used
perspective and freeness of form – an amazingly
sophisticated art.

And cave paintings have a common style worldwide. It’s
as though they came from a common school.

The original caves of Montignac-Lascaux (now closed to
the public) have been called “the Sistine Chapel of
prehistory”. The artists achieved a remarkable
three-dimensional effect by using the natural contours
of rock.

How did they do this? Small holes became the glaring
eyes of a bison; cracks became the wounds of a
stricken deer; odd-shaped bulges were incorporated
into the painting as a head or back hump.

Even today, light and shadow contrasts using the
natural rock shapes make the animals appear to be
alive and breathing. Here is a technique and effect
unique in the history of art.

I tell you, these cavemen scaled heights not reached
again until late in our era.

Are we to believe that these were dim-witted savages,
incapable of putting two stones together to build a


Do you know, they used scaffolds – and the holes in
the rock, where they put in crossbeams for planks, are
still there.

Now scaffolding cannot precede the knowledge of
masonry; it follows from the development of masonry.
Therefore we can be sure that ‘cavemen’ knew how to
construct houses.

And yes, remains of their houses have actually been


Prehistoric cave paintings in Africa depict men with
blond beards and well-styled hair who are wearing
boots, tight-fitting pants, multicoloured shirts, coats
and gloves.

A woman is wearing a short-sleeved pullover,
closely-fitting breeches, and gloves, garters and

Engraved stones unearthed in a cave at Lussac, France,
show modern-looking people in casual poses wearing
robes, belts, boots, coats and hats.

A seated young lady wears a pantsuit with a
short-sleeved jacket, a pair of small boots, and a
decorated hat. On her lap is what looks like a modern

Men wear well-tailored pants, broad belts with clasps,
and clipped beards and moustaches.

But let me warn you. If you go to photograph these
engraved drawings, you will be stopped. This is very
embarrassing material. And it’s decidedly not open to
public inspection.

Understandably. It refutes all that we’ve been told to

There’s a vested interest at stake, here. So many
peoples’ careers are bound up in it now. Lifetime

Of course, many of the theorists are totally sincere.
They believe they have found the answer, and they
don’t want someone to come along and tell them it’s
all made up.


(a) Community cooperation was highly developed.
(b)  They were familiar with sea travel.
(c) They each one inherited a common lunar calendar
system from a civilization older than they.
(d) ‘Stone Age’ men mined metals.
