Burying Egypt’s True History?

Could history be wrong? More specifically, could the story and purpose of the pyramids of ancient Egypt, as presented in numerous TV documentaries and countless academic books, be fatally flawed? Indeed, is there another plausible paradigm, with an entirely different narrative for interpreting these magnificent monuments? Is there an alternative view that stands up to scrutiny, is consistent with the ancient Egyptian culture, and is corroborated with much more evidence than is the tomb theory of orthodoxy? Is there an explanation that is almost unknown…

Oak Island & the Masons

On a tiny island off the coast of Nova Scotia, a treasure hunt has been going on for an incredible 221 years. During that time it has drawn adventurers of all kinds, including Hollywood entertainers such as John Wayne and Errol Flynn, and even an American president-to-be, Franklin D Roosevelt. And now, an intriguing new theory regarding the origin of the notorious ‘money pit’ of Oak Island and involving eighteenth century Freemasons is causing a stir in some quarters. More on that shortly, but first,…

Bucky’s Legacy

He coined: “Spaceship Earth” (and wrote an instruction manual) He invented: the geodesic dome He predicted: the Information Age He pioneered: recycling and nanotechnology He exhorted: think global, act local While still a young man, R. Buckminster Fuller (1895–1983) fell into despair after the failure of his building company and the death of his little daughter. He wanted to end it all. “But,” as he later recounted, “I said to myself, ‘You do not belong to you, therefore you do not have the right to…

Science and the Forgery Factor

The very cold case of the Piltdown Man forgery has, we are led to believe, been solved at last, scientific embarrassment notwithstanding. The perpetrator of one of the greatest frauds in scientific history has now been fingered. In August 2016, the journal Royal Society Open Science, revealed the results of a recent special forensic investigation. At long last, they have found their man (a precursor paper, released in 2012, was reported at the time in AR #98). The Piltdown forgery was, indisputably, the work of Charles…

Did the Vikings Possess Advanced Navigation Technology? Viking explorers made it to America long before Columbus. That is now widely accepted, but the navigational expertise that would have been required, has remained a mystery. The standard view has been that the Vikings must have been very good at using landmarks, birds, and whales, but little else. It has, however, long been believed by some, that the secret may have been something called a ‘sunstone,’ a crystal which made it possible to accurately track the position…

Is it Time to Worry about an Ice Age? Trumpeted daily in the press, the claims by some scientists of an approaching catastrophic rise in earth temperatures—brought on by human activity—is seldom challenged. But, there remain respected researchers who think that changes in Earth’s temperature, are more likely due to the Sun. The 11-year sunspot cycle and other solar events, they believe, can be correlated with many earthly cycles, including temperature. For these observers, we may have more to fear from global cooling than warming….

Was Venus Once Habitable? Future interplanetary tourists are more likely to choose Mars over Venus as a desirable destination, but in the very distant past, that may not have been the case. While Venus today may be a scorching hell, there is new evidence that, once upon a time, it could have actually been quite habitable. According to Cornell University professor Michael Way and his colleagues, depending on the rate of spin, Venus might once have had balmy temperatures, not unlike Earth’s. In a paper…

Pyramid Ruins Discovered in Kazakhstan In what are called the ‘steppes’ (mountain valleys) of Kazakhstan, a large previously unknown stone pyramid has just been discovered near the city of Karaganda. Researcher Victor Novozhenov says the structure is probably older than 3,000 years and is, he thinks, the work of the Begazy-Dandybai culture. Unlike the so-called Bosnian pyramid, which has drawn much attention in recent years, this one is indisputably man-made, and resembles Egypt’s Step pyramid, in both size and structure. Central Asia has long been…

3D Proof of Stone Circle Alignments

Archaeologist Dr. Gail Higginbottom, the project leader and University of Adelaide Visiting Research Fellow, used a 3D Landscaping Model software package developed in South Australia to prove that the stone monuments do not only align with the sun and moon but also the shapes on the horizon. “Nobody before this has ever statistically determined that a single stone circle was constructed with astronomical phenomena in mind,” said Dr. Higginbottom. Archaeologists have long believed that megaliths, such as the famous Stonehenge site, which attracts people from…

iNews: Late Breaking Stories

Humans In America 50,000 Years Ago Radiocarbon tests of carbonized plant remains where artifacts were unearthed last May along the Savannah River by University of South Carolina archaeologist Dr. Albert Goodyear indicate humans inhabited North American long before the last ice age. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/11/041118104010.htm   Was Egyptian Mummification Reversible? Could, in fact, it have been a simplified, non-functioning version of a lost art of body preservation that had a real chance of reanimation? Could the method have been inherited from a highly advanced antediluvian civilization, lost…

Responding to a Critic in Russia

In a recent YouTube video (https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=PLat-xnvKxIeL_ 9yKl8ytQ8tp6r5gmwUKZ&v=mZ4a84K-3r4), Alexander Sokolov, a Russian science writer, made some negative comments about my book Forbidden Archeology, in which I document archeological evidence for extreme human antiquity. A reader of mine in Russia translated Sokolov’s remarks from Russian to English, sent them to me, and asked what I had to say. I normally do not reply to every critic. If I did, I would have no time for anything else. But in this case I made an exception. First of…

Shining City on a Hill

Medieval European Crusaders who traveled to Constantinople, Cairo, and Jerusalem established a renewed interest in Old Testament stories especially the legends of the Temple of Solomon and King David’s friend, the Phoenician King Hiram. This early Renaissance of the culture of Jerusalem gave birth to the Brotherhood of the Poor Knights of the Temple of Solomon (also known as the Knights Templar), who became enthralled by Middle-Eastern Masonry and Science. Centuries later, the Italian Renaissance renewed interest in ancient art forms, Hermetic teachings from Egypt,…

Ancient Mysteries in Mid-America

Less than a two-hour drive from Chicago, a lonely boulder perched atop a steep-sided hill overlooks thousands of daily commuters speeding by on the expressway below from their suburban homes to jobs in the big city and back again each day. Absorbed in the mundane affairs of modern survival, they are oblivious to the magical monolith that still points its unchanging finger at the sky, just as it did centuries before the suburbanites’ forebears came to northern Illinois. This part of Illinois, the Prairie State,…

The Redemption of Royal Raymond Rife

In July in Idaho, well-known inventor and audio engineer John Bedini disclosed the principles of operation for a “Bedini-Rife-Prioré device”—a working system based on his own discoveries and on two past successful machines. Physicist Tom Bearden had added a further key concept. When Bedini released his circuit diagrams, he emphasized that he’s not a doctor and is certainly not giving medical advice or making claims. Instead, he hopes skilled experimenters will use his information to build their own such devices and to test them. He…

Technologies of the Animals

One of the greatest mysteries in the natural world is the amazing ability of certain animals to develop what can only be called technology, ranging from simple burrows and crude nests to the dams and canals built by beavers and the complex structures and the farming and ranching activities of some social insects. No conventional explanation for this is adequate—there is something going on here that modern materialist/reductionist science cannot understand. As far back as the late pre-Cambrian, in the Ediacaran period (635–543 million years…

The Quest for the Life Force

It may very well have been the most important discovery in the history of mankind—a “life principal” that permeates and connects all living things. What German chemist Baron Karl von Reichenbach (1788–1869) called odic force, or just od or odyle, was likened to the prana of the ancient Hindus, the vis medicatrix naturae of Hippocrates, the mana of Polynesian culture, the chi of the Chinese, the astral light of the Kabbalists, the telesma of Hermes Trismegistus, and the magnetic fluid of Mesmer. Later names associated…

Ancient Fire and Lightning

While in Egypt this summer (2016), my colleagues Yousef Awyan and Mohamed Ibrahim pointed out to me a very curious phenomenon on the Giza Plateau, which Katie (my wife, Catherine Ulissey) and I explored further. In places, particularly in the vicinity of the Second Pyramid and its “Mortuary Temple,” the limestone bedrock is blackened and has a charred or burnt appearance, as if it had been subjected to incredibly high temperatures. It looks like it may have been melted and re-congealed, resembling slag, scoria, or…

Secrets in Your Hand

Did you know that the length of your fingers can predict your social behavior, scholastic ability, and sexual orientation? Would you believe that an analysis of your palms can diagnose genetic disorders, medical conditions, and even estimate the length of your life? It’s true. What was once considered fortune telling is increasingly becoming mainstream science. The evidence lending credence to the ancient art of palmistry comes from research in a variety of fields. The study of finger and palmar ridge patterns, known as dermatoglyphics, has…

Jupiter in Libra

“Justice that love gives is a surrender, justice that law gives is a punishment.” —Mahatma Gandhi   On September 9, 2016, Jupiter entered the cardinal air sign of Libra, at the midpoint of two powerful eclipses.
