Homet, Marcel F.

Marcel F. Homet (1897-1982) was a famous French Algerian scientist who published over twenty books Marcel_Hometon anthropology, ethnology and ancient history generally. His most famous book is Sons of the Sun[813] discusses his work in South America where he found evidence of Old World connections, in particular, on the famous Pedra Pintada (Painted Rock)(a) in Brazil, in a region which provides evidence of human activity there as early as 40,000 years ago, although, because of the acidic soil the earliest human bones are dated to 12,000 years ago(b).*Some of the Pedra Pintada images have been claimed to represent UFOs!*

The title of Homet’s book is his name for Atlanteans. Homet believed that Atlantis had been located in the Atlantic and*was part of a landbridge linking Europe and the Americas, an idea that was still popular when he was a child, but abandoned long since. Homet contended that refugees fleeing its destruction had escaped to both of those continents.*He linked “tools,inscriptions, cults and monuments in both Crete and Egypt on the one hand with the Amazon regions on the other.”
