In an era of medical and technological advancements, would you believe that there are still groups of people who live in isolated areas? While most of worry about the latest fashion, gadgets, and newer ways to look younger, uncontacted tribes do not concern themselves with these trivial things.

What matters most to them is simply their survival.

Only 100 uncontacted tribes remain in this world, one of which is this uncontacted Indian tribe living in the dense Amazon forest. According to Survival Intenational, uncontacted tribes have probably lived on their lands for a thousand years.

However, illegal loggers from the Peru side of the border force them to flee the forests and make contact with settled indigenous communities. Hostile neighbors and diseases then may threaten their existence.

Since few people are aware of their existence aside from their neighbors who they may or may not be at peace with, Brazil’s Indian Affairs Department FUNAI started a campaign that could help save the tribe from invaders. However, they have to prove first that the tribe exists.

Jose Carlos Morales, who works for the department by monitoring the tribe’s land to search for signs of invaders, allowed the BBC film crew to travel with him and capture amazing aerial footages of the tribe using powerful zoom lenses to minimize disturbance. This way, they can show the government and the rest of the world that the tribe exists and that they must do something to preserve their land.

Watch this first aerial footage of one of the last uncontacted Amazon tribes on earth.

Is This The Ancient Biblical City of Sodom? Researchers May Have Found Telling Clues!

An excavation site in Jordan may just contain the answers to one of the bible’s more pressing mysteries.

Researchers excavating in Tall el-Hammaam in Jordan may have found what is believed to be the ancient biblical city of Sodom that was destroyed by God's angels with fire and brimstone.

The site, which closely matches the description of the doomed city in the Bible's accounts, is dated to be between 3500 to 1540 BC with ruins that give all indication of having been suddenly abandoned for no apparent reason, pointing towards what may have been a catastrophe of apocalyptic proportions occurring sometime in its past.
