Mega-Engineering in the Stars?

Over a thousand years ago, while European civilization stagnated during the Dark Ages, did a race of advanced extraterrestrials in a distant part of our galaxy build a huge energy-capturing mega structure around their sun? This may be the story behind an anomalous star known to astronomers as KIC 8462852 (KIC = Kepler Input Catalog of the Kepler space observatory). Informally dubbed “Tabby’s Star,” “Boyajian’s Star” (Tabetha S. Boyajian spearheaded initial analyses of the star), and “WTF Star” (after the title of the paper authored…

Archaeology of the UFO

During September 1993, I was at the Cairo Museum, studying the life of Thutmose III. As the sixth monarch of the 18th Dynasty, he was the king of Egypt for fifty-four years, beginning in 1479 BCE, a period pertinent to my research at the time. Among documents I was allowed to inspect was an English language translation of the Tulli Papyrus. Hoping to learn something about the Pharaoh’s connection with ancient dynastic seamanship, I was surprised to read instead how, during the “sixth hour of…

Flying Machines—The Downside

It is a certainty of this world that we know how airplanes fly. Simple: It is the curvature of the wing. The curvature causes higher velocity of airflow over the top surface relative to the bottom surface, thus causing “lift.” So look at the picture below of the two planes in flight. Isn’t something odd? How do planes fly upside down if curvature on the top surface of the wing is so all-important? The new explanatory move has now become invoking the wing’s “angle of…

Designing Intelligence in Outer Space?

In our 74th issue (March/April 2009), Atlantis Rising reported on a mysterious cloud formation observed on Saturn. An immense (15,000-mile diameter), perfectly hexagon, shape was photographed by the NASA Cassini probe in the cyclonic clouds over the ringed planet’s north pole. Adding to the mystery: it appeared to be a permanent feature—first spotted by the Voyager spacecraft over two decades earlier, it was unchanged in the Cassini image. Update: Late in 2016 NASA reported that the formation has now changed, but only in its color….

6,000-Year-Old Cave Painting Mystifies Experts A mysterious cave mural, scientifically dated to 6,000 years ago, was on display in Jerusalem in November but, by now, may be back in storage. First discovered in the 1930s in an archaeological dig at Jordan’s Teleilat el-Ghassul, just east of the Jordan River and north of the Dead Sea. “The Ghassulian Star” has been under lock and key in Jerusalem’s Rockefeller museum ever since, ostensibly because of its fragile condition. A satisfactory explanation of its anomalous imagery, however, is…

Fresh Evidence: Ancient Civilization on Mars? The case for advanced ancient civilization on Mars has just taken a couple leaps forward. The discovery in December 2016 in an old 1999 satellite photo of what appear to be three gigantic, and precisely aligned, towers is stirring excitement in the Mars anomaly research community. In the Terra Meridiana region, the Mars Orbital Camera (MOC) of the Malin Space Systems clearly shows three aligned and matching anomalous structures in the middle of a flat plain. Meanwhile, a new…

Medieval Giantess Found The controversial role of giants in history remains for many a fascinating theme in both myth and history. The recent discovery of a seven-foot-two-inch female skeleton in a medieval Polish church cemetery is causing a stir. While males of that height are rare, they can still be found (check with the NBA), but a female that large is exceedingly rare. Now a paper for the journal New Developments in the Bioarchaeology of Care tells of the find in Ostrów Lednicki, an island…

Titanic Flashback Coming to China In Atlantis Rising #92 (March/April 2012) Michael Tymn wrote about the 1912 sinking of the Titanic and the many well-documented appearances by victims, which occurred following the disaster. Now comes word that the ship itself will soon be seen again but, this time, we must confess, there is a perfectly ‘natural’ explanation—that is, if you think the plan by a Chinese resort company to build a life-size facsimile of the doomed ship is ‘natural.’ According to a company news release…

The Speed of Light Violated?

Scientists behind a theory that the speed of light is variable—and not constant, as Einstein had suggested—have made a prediction that could be tested. Einstein observed that the speed of light remains the same in any situation, and this meant that space and time could be different in different situations. The assumption that the speed of light is constant, and always has been, underpins many theories in physics, such as Einstein’s theory of general relativity. In particular, it plays a role in models of what…

Anunnaki Tales

In the late 1990s, one of those making waves with new theories about the possible intervention of ancient ETs in the affairs of Earth was British writer Alan Alford. In his first book Gods of the New Millennium (1996) Alford expanded on the ideas of Zecharia Sitchin, chronicled in his best-selling books, beginning with The Twelfth Planet. Alford’s book also became a best-seller in the U.K. Subsequently, he would change his position on the meaning of ancient texts, coming more to the catastrophist view shared…

The Medjugorje Apparitions

Apparitions of Mary, the mother of Jesus of Nazareth, are not confined to the past and such long-time Catholic pilgrimage sites as Guadalupe in Mexico, Fatima in Portugal, and Lourdes in France. If the six “visionaries” from the village of Medjugorje in the country now known as Bosnia-Herzegovina (previously part of Yugoslavia) are to be believed, they are continuing today. In fact, they have been ongoing there since June 24, 1981, when some children witnessed the first such apparition. According to the Medjugorje Web (medjugorje.org),…

The Secret of America’s Name—Unsolved Mystery

We all know in 1492 Columbus sailed across the Atlantic and “discovered” America. Well, actually, Columbus did not believe that he had discovered anything. He believed that he had sailed to Asia. In fact he believed the natives he encountered were Indians (of the Indian subcontinent). Five years later, it would be an agent for the Medici family, Amerigo (or Alberico) Vespucci, who would cross the Atlantic. Vespucci did understand that it was not Asia but a New World. In fact he would publish the…

The Basque/Atlantis Connection

Although they now live all over the world—with a great many in the Western United States—the known homeland of the people called the Basques is in the western Pyrenees Mountains of southwestern France and northwestern Spain. Physically, they look like most southern Europeans, such as Sicilians or Greeks, having, in most cases, relatively dark skin, eyes, and hair. Their one physical peculiarity, not readily visible, is that many have Rh-negative blood, which, in most parts of the world, is rare. Their oddest cultural trait is…

The Promise of Energy Psychology

The emergence of Energy Psychology (EP), including methods such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), TFT (Thought Field Therapy), PSYCH-K, and Matrix Reimprinting (to name a few) means that, for millions of people suffering from phobias, self-limiting beliefs, and even major emotional and/or physical traumas, expensive and often ineffective traditional therapies can be eschewed in favor of more affordable (or free)—and very often spectacularly successful—“new” methods that can achieve better results in a fraction of the time. Energy psychology describes a collection of novel psychological interventions…

When Magnetism Is Not Attractive

Magnetoreception (also magnetoception) is a sense that allows an organism to detect a magnetic field to perceive direction, altitude or location. This sensory modality is used by a range of animals for orientation and navigation, and as a method for animals to develop regional maps. For the purpose of navigation, magnetoreception deals with the detection of the Earth’s magnetic field. —Wikipedia   What we perceive with our eyes is less than one percent of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum, the range of wavelengths over which EM…

Love, Death & the Meaning of Life

Almost 100 years have passed since the complete mathematical formulation of quantum physics. It has been verified by myriad experiments and its concepts have been successfully applied in many technologies. Indeed, we have begun to use the word “quantum” in our daily discourse—often without fully understanding its deeper meaning. And yet, despite its effective integration into our society, the quantum worldview has still not been fully accepted by the scientific community, which continues to espouse and defend the archaic Newtonian worldview. Consequently, the full implications…
