“Eyewitness” AccountDetails Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah The Bible story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah has been unexpectedly corroborated by an ancient Su­merian clay tablet. In fact, according to a startling report from two prominent scientists, the tablet, which had baffled scholars for more than a century, is a virtual eyewitness description of an ancient asteroid hit that killed thousands. The event is said to be related to a great landslide episode which scientists have previously called the “Köfels’s Impact Event.” According to…

Giant Crop Circle Appears in a Flash For crop circle aficionados eager to prove that the phenomenon is real and not just a concoction of hoaxers—such as the notorious Doug and Dave—there are few better opportunities than those which accompanied formation of the giant field design at Alton Priors, in Wiltshire, England on July 7 (7/7/07). Not only did the colossal pattern appear overnight but it did so while the entire area was under careful human and photographic observation. Even though the actual making of…

Can Friendly Bacteria Help Clean Up the Gulf Oil Spill? As the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico grew worse over the early summer, it was difficult to imagine how the vast pool of brown sticky goo could ever be disposed of. As in the human digestive system, at least some of the answer may yet come from bacteria, what might be called friendly bacteria. Researchers at Oregon State University say they have discovered a new strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa—a common bacteria that researchers…

Has the Kepler Space Telescope Detected an Alien Megastructure? In the Atlantis Rising cover story for November/December (#114) “Is Anybody Home?” we reported on an imminent acceleration in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). But the case for advanced ET Life could be developing even faster than we projected. Recent findings from the exoplanet-hunting Kepler Space Telescope are raising the possibility of an alien civilization capable of engineering accomplishments almost beyond meager human comprehension. Kepler capability, it seems, goes beyond simple detection of the transiting…

Celestial Close Encounter of the Physical Kind On the morning of Feb. 16, 2013, the small city of Chelyabinsk in the southern Ural Mountains of Siberia got a taste of what the last days of Atlantis may have been like. Traveling at close to 40,000 miles per hour, a meteor flashed through the heavens and exploded with an estimated force of about 500 kilotons of TNT (or about 20 to 30 times the atomic blasts at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan which ended World War II)….

Americans from 30,000 Years Ago? News of Americans far more ancient than once believed possible continues. The latest report comes from Brazil where a major new exhibit in Brasilia documenting the presence of humans from 29,000 years ago has caught the public’s attention. On display are artifacts from Serra da Capivara National Park in Brazil’s northeastern Piaui state. Franco-Brazilian archaeologist Niede Guidon has been carrying out large-scale excavations of the area since the 1970s. She says the cave paintings and other relics are the oldest…

The Strange Power of Ancient Acoustics Many esoteric and spiritual teachers have long claimed that our ancient ancestors possessed a science of sound, now lost, which made it possible to do many things that baffle us today. Some researchers, like the late John Michell, have argued that the ancients were able to use their mastery of chanting and acoustics to levitate heavy objects to build many gigantic structures which still stand, and which our modern technology would be hard-pressed to duplicate. While no one has…

Our Galaxy Could Be a Giant Wormhole, http://cialis24pharmacy-online.com/ Say Scientists Could our galaxy be a huge wormhole like that seen in the movie Interstellar? And if that were true, would it be “stable and navigable?” Now a new study published in the journal Annals of Physics says yes. “If we combine the map of the dark matter in the Milky Way with the most recent Big Bang model to explain the universe and we hypothesize the existence of space-time tunnels, what we get is that…

Sabotaging the Hadron Collider FROM THE FUTURE? In the Terminator movies, a robot from a future robotically controlled civilization returns to our time in an attempt to destroy a young hero who is destined to overthrow the robots. It makes pretty exciting science fiction, but could such a thing really happen, and might that account for the uncommonly “bad luck” which for years now has sur­rounded—not to say haunted—startup efforts for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Cern, Switzerland? According to no less an authority…

PROOF OF ANTEDILUVIAN CIVILIZATION? Is Göbekli Tepe the Smoking Gun? The ongoing attempt by academic archaeology to reconcile the growing gaps in its prevailing theory of history could be becoming something of a bridge too far. At the moment, dramatic discoveries at an out-of-the-way Turkish dig near Urfa a few miles north of the Syrian border, known as Göbekli Tepe, are readily acknowledged to be a “challenge to conventional history,” but that characterization could well prove to be a major understatement. Carbon dated at twelve-thousand…
