Actual expert wants you to know what the real facts are

Actual expert wants you to know what the real facts are

It is always amusing when someone chooses to be anonymous when declaring superior knowledge about the past.   I urge you to contact this Dixie archaeologist to gain the pearls of wisdom available.   You better do it in a hurry because the various tracking programs that spammers use already have this person’s email address and IPN!   😆 

Next week, People of One Fire will be issuing a national press release that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the taxpayers of the United States paid $50,000 for an archaeological report to the US Forest Service, endorsed by the Georgia Council of Professional Archaeologists and Society For Georgia Archaeology, which actually was a plagiarism of the published observations of a tourist in 1834,  not the result of professional analysis in the 21st century.


Actual Expert,,
Please don’t listen to anything Richard Thornton says. He’s not an expert and has zero idea about the prehistory and history of the United States. He is a huckster and makes a mockery of a discipline that actual experts have studied and labored over for their lifetimes.
The following two tabs change content below.
Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history. Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.

    Looking forward to your release on the fraudulent archaeological and plagiarized report.

    Richard, Best of luck to you. You don’t seem to be Beloved in North Georgia by the State Historians or Cops. I don’t think they want you to provide a more logical history that many peoples have been crossing the Atlantic for a very long time. Maybe back as far as 220,000-300,000 years ago in a Mexico dig that happened in the 60’s. Who knows what treasure would be found by you and your friends with “Lidar scans”. I would contact the main Creek Mico in Oklahoma and see if they would like to get involved in helping you…with your research? The Native peoples have not been forthcoming in their DNA samples…except the Cherokees and the Uchee’s. The Eastern states seems to be layered with many peoples artifacts and symbols?


    huck·ster (hŭk′stər) n.
    1. One who sells wares or provisions in the street; a peddler or hawker.
    2. One who uses aggressive, showy, and sometimes devious methods to promote or sell a product.
    3. Informal One who writes advertising copy, especially for radio or television.

    Are you paid by or selling anything for POOF

    Seems like the geologists and archeologists are the ones getting paid to peddle and promote

    • Ed, I don’t get a penny from the advertising. I must confess, though, that you saved my butt a year ago when I was moving here, and several people saved my butt this past month, when I had an enormous car repair bill followed by being struck by lightning. Guess I am pseudo-huckster. LOL


    Richard, I know whose research for the truth I Trust. That’s why I have been reading and learning from People of One Fire for Years. Thanks for Amazing research and articles about your findings.


      I am not sure how to react to your post regarding the people who are harassing you other than – be very cautious. Document everything that happens. Install a digital wildlife camera or two. You need proof. Photos would be good evidence.

      • Done that and a lot more. Got a civil rights attorney, who is a former detective with the Atlanta Police Department. Thank you, though.


          Good. After reading your accounts of what you’ve been through I’m curious about that lightning that hit you recently…

          • I am not curious. I just don’t want it to happen again. Who would expect about 6 million volts of lighting to come out of the floor and go through your body?


            The possibility for the bolt of electricity I’m alluding to (though unlikely given your history still possible) would start from the ground. How did you come up with the 6 million volt number? And yes, let’s hope it doesn’t happen again!

          • The lightning damage inspector based that on the fact that the lightning jumped 3 feet from my index finger to my computer. There was no lightning electricity in my household circuit. The damage to my GFI switches and one circuit breaker was due to the explosion from a second larger lightning bolt which came a few seconds later up from the floor about 4 feet from me. That explosion knocked me out. It is called ball lightning.


            Very interesting. First I’ve heard of ball lightning, I found many historical accounts of it in Wikipedia’s article.

            Not sure if I’ve got all the details straight– A large lightning bolt strikes the same spot next to your house as another did exactly two weeks before. This spot is a tree stump six feet from your house which has a root that runs under the house. You recently had the massive oak tree removed that resulted in this stump. Your feet and legs buzz and then a second bolt/ball of lightning comes up from the floor four feet away from you, strikes you, and knocks you out. A lightning damage inspector (sent by an insurance company?) determines that the second bolt jumped three feet from your index finger to your computer which then got fried (but fortunately was able to be somewhat repaired later.) The inspector also determines that the second bolt damaged your GFI switches and a circuit breaker. Is that the scenario?


    I score the claim-count accuracy of Actual Expert’s post at 1/4.

    He’s definitely got a solid case against you making a complete mockery of the field of Anthropology however. Too bad anthropologists don’t either understand or believe in modern genetics, nor do they have the slightest inclination or ability to read the earliest factual historic accounts and maps. This guy must be the Wikipedia wanker from the UK lol!


    I see that is the URL for a company called Infosys, which describes itself as “a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting.” If “expert” is actually an expert at something, it appears that it’s not anthropology or history.

The Information World is changing!

People of One Fire needs your help to evolve with it.

We are now celebrating the 11th year of the People of One Fire. In that time, we have seen a radical change in the way people receive information. The magazine industry has almost died. Printed newspapers are on life support. Ezines, such as POOF, replaced printed books as the primary means to present new knowledge. Now the media is shifting to videos, animated films of ancient towns, Youtube and three dimensional holograph images.

During the past six years, a privately owned business has generously subsidized my research as I virtually traveled along the coast lines and rivers of the Southeast. That will end in December 2017. I desperately need to find a means to keep our research self-supporting with advertising from a broader range of viewers. Creation of animated architectural history films for POOF and a People of One Fire Youtube Channel appears to be the way. To do this I will need to acquire state-of-art software and video hardware, which I can not afford with my very limited income. Several of you know personally that I live a very modest lifestyle. If you can help with this endeavor, it will be greatly appreciated.

Support Us!

Richard Thornton . . . the truth is out there somewhere!
