For several decades now, academia has claimed to know the ages of our planet’s oldest known civilizations. They have given us precise timelines that essentially makeup what we know of as our historical paradigm. At the same time, independent researchers and scholars have repeatedly questioned and challenged these timelines as being inconsistent and in many cases flat out incorrect. Perhaps there is no better example of this inaccuracy than the age of the Indus Valley Civilization. For over a century, Western academics have preached to their students and anyone paying attention, that the Indus civilization was about 5500 years old. But, recently, it has been determined they were off by at least 2500 years.
