James DeMeo Podcast Interview on Saharasia, this Sunday Night

Podcast Interview with James DeMeo on Saharasia, this Sunday Night

Tomorrow, October 7th, Sunday at 9 PM to midnight, Pacific Time, Dr. James DeMeo will be hosted for an interview with Richard Hoagland, on his Saharasia discovery. The weblink for tuning in to the podcast, or getting it later on, is

Dr. DeMeo’s controversial research findings, requiring 7 years of investigation and field work on two continents, uncovered an early peaceful period in human pre-history, prior to c.4000-3500 BC. His findings show this peaceful condition ended with the onset of a major shift in climate at that same period in the 4th millennium, from wet to hyperarid conditions across what is today identified as the Saharasian Desert Belt – stretching across North Africa, the Middle East, and into Central Asia. This enormous desert, stretching more than half-way around the Earth, was once well-watered, with massive rivers and giant lakes, thick with wildlife, large and small. It also was the home to early hunter-gatherer and pastoral societies. That massive desert region is still with us today, and its shift from wet to dry was the largest climate change epoch to occur since the end of the last major Ice Age. This event of major desert-spreading fractured emerging human societies, leading to famine, starvation, abandonment of early settlements, and mass migrations, all of which are documented in Dr. DeMeo’s work. Out of this early disaster and chaos came the origins of organized and persisting, institutionalized social violence and warfare.

The Saharasian discovery also included the largest-ever global cross-cultural survey of ethnographic/anthropological data on human sexual and family life, the status of women, marriage customs, slavery, castes, organized religion and military structures, with the first global geographic maps of those data. The finding confirmed how serious infant and childhood trauma, with attending serious sexual repression, leads to social violence and war. And, the most violent cultures identified by relatively modern anthropology are still found within this same Saharasian Desert region.

Saharasia was the cradle out of which human violence firstly emerged in any large measure, which spread outwards over the millennia in mass-migrations and conquest invasions, to destroy peaceful and egalitarian societies around the world. Pre-Columbian ocean voyages figure into the transmission of violence from the Old World across the oceans and into the Americas. There is more, but you’ll have to read the explosive book on this important scientific discovery, and listen to the podcast. Dr. DeMeo’s findings were produced in the 1980s when he served as professor in the universities. It was subjected to rigorous peer-review, with a quadruple-blind analytical procedure, and published in scientific journals. However, his work also suffered an academic "black-out" due to its controversial and "politically incorrect" nature.
