Hi, I was looking for something related to mummies and I found something called '' tarim mummies '' in western China with blond and reddish hair, the revelation tells us that the sons of Adam went to China
I don't have time to publish quotes now

yep thats right

Quote:
79:1.2 (878.3) For almost fifteen thousand years centers of mixed Andite culture persisted in the basin of the Tarim River in Sinkiang and to the south in the highland regions of Tibet, where the Andites and Andonites had extensively mingled. The Tarim valley was the easternmost outpost of the true Andite culture. Here they built their settlements and entered into trade relations with the progressive Chinese to the east and with the Andonites to the north. In those days the Tarim region was a fertile land; the rainfall was plentiful. To the east the Gobi was an open grassland where the herders were gradually turning to agriculture. This civilization perished when the rain winds shifted to the southeast, but in its day it rivaled Mesopotamia itself.

There doesn't seem to have been a lot of research into the ancient climate of the area, unfortunately. This has led most of those who examine the mummies to presume the people arrived there only in the last few thousand years. However, there is a ring of very tall mountains around about 70% of area from which the remnant ices of the glacial ages would have remained until recently. Much of the melt water would have flowed through what is now desert. Even if the rains were not reliable, there should have been a suitable amount of water to enable agriculture and a civilization ten to twenty thousand years ago.

well the basin is currently irrigated by rivers thru the desert and the science says it had a large lake post-glacial and they've just never found any evidence of humans older than ~2000bc. they may not have dug in the right area, rivers change and sands shift, or dug deep enough. also the wetter climate would not have preserved things as well as what happened with the later mummies...probably most of the salt in the sands there is from the old dried up lakes.
