Semir Osmanagić on the Prehistoric Vinča

THE AWAKENING TIMES (TAT): What can you tell us about Vinča? What`s the story behind it?

SEMIR OSMANAGIĆ (SO): The story of Vinča is much broader than just any story of a distant historical period. It is a story about a set of values, those human values that should be universally established.

TAT: Where does the story start?

SO: The culture of Vinča dates back to about 5,000 years before Christ (BCE). However, very little is said about it and even less researched. 

TAT: Why is that so?

SO: Vinča civilization is older than 7,000 years. It is about 9,000 years old. We can say that the history of the last 100,000 years comes down to civilizational cycles, unlike what we are taught in schools, that 10, 20, and 30,000 years ago we were at the primitive level of cavemen. The last 100,000 years is a history of cycles, where civilizations would reach their peak and then disappear under global catastrophes. One such particular global catastrophe happened about 12,000 years ago. Massive amounts of ice melted, huge earthquakes happened, tsunamis caused waves as high as 1,000 meters, and volcanic eruptions occurred as well. More than 99% of humanity was wiped off the face of the planet Earth.

The first culture which appeared on European soil after that was Lepenski Vir, located on the river Danube. There were five cities on the Serbian side and two on the Romanian side of the river. This is the period that science calls the Mesolithic or Middle Stone Age. Two thousand years later, the Neolithic, i.e. the Younger Stone Age, began. The first oasis in Europe during the Neolithic period was again in our region and was called Vinča. It was not a culture but rather a civilization. The term “culture“ is still used by Western scientists (Vienna, Berlin, London, and Paris), and they imposed their opinion on our authors too.
