now to spend the next couple days researching all this to determine the veracity vs. bullshit quotient... or not.

#6 - I can confirm this, sort of. It has been known that there have been fairly advanced societies living in the amazon for decades. In the past 10 years or so research and discoveries have increased, especially due to deforestation. There is a lot of really interesting stuff coming up in the amazon.

not to mention, if towns and cities existed centuries before, to the north of the amazon (mayans), and they existed at that time and in the coming years in the western amazon (incas), i don't see how #6 is very surprising.

You're right but I think what that point is getting at is it was believed there were only hunter gatherer tribes living in small or medium villages of a few dozen to a few hundred people in the Amazon. Until now there have been no megalithic structures found that point to an advanced civilization, like the Maya or Inca. However as the forest is being cleared for farmland, very large earth works, pottery (it was believed that the Amazon was pre-pottery for a long time), and a complex agricultural system are being exposed. Some of the sites they are finding seem to have populations that range in the thousands. No one ever expected to find anything that big in the middle of the Amazon.

New research has proven that if something is called a fact, people might believe it.

"New research" usually debunks "old research", but one day it too will be "old research".
