Temple of Atlan, in the Bahamas? A discovery of massive ruins of quarried stone about 30 miles south of Bimini in the Bahamas has been reported by underwater archaeologists (and frequent contributors to this publication) Drs. Greg and Lora Little. First described in Atlantis Rising, #97, “Brown’s Ruins” (named for Eslie and Krista Brown, the divers who found it) is arousing much speculation that it might, perhaps, be part of the long-sought remains of Atlantis. Whether or not that is the case, the anomalous features…

New Evidence Challenges Global Warming Models The principal article of faith—fervently held these days in certain sectors of government and academia—that Earth is rapidly warming and headed toward a climate catastrophe unless draconian steps are taken immediately, has received another significant, albeit heretical, challenge. In the recently released National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) report, “State of the Climate in 2012,” the statement is made: “worldwide, 2012 was among the 10 warmest years on record.” But as well known climate blogger Pierre Gosselin points out,…

Methane on Mars After All There is methane on Mars, after all. Here on Earth methane is usually, but not always, a sign of biological processes—in other words, life. Other things, primarily geological processes, can also produce the gas, so NASA scientists are not yet ready to declare they have found evidence for life on Mars. They are getting interested though. The recent discovery by the Mars Curiosity Rover came as a surprise. Just months prior, NASA had announced that actually Curiosity had found no…

‘Lost’ Tomb of Nefertiti Said Found Thirty-three centuries ago, she was the world’s most powerful women as well as, in all likelihood, its most beautiful, yet Egypt’s Queen Nefertiti remains one of the most enigmatic women who have ever lived. Though she ruled jointly with her husband Akhenaten, and left the world its lasting legacy of monotheism, she disappeared suddenly from history and no one has been able to determine exactly what happened to her. Now, however, English archaeologist Dr. Nicholas Reeves of the University…

ARCHAEOLOGIST BACKS UP STORY OF SOLOMON’S TEMPLE Jerusalem’s old city is really old—3,000 years in fact—says a new archaeological investigation.

New Light on Turin Shroud’s Age and Templar Connections After supposedly definitive carbon 14 tests, the Shroud of Turin was declared in 1988 to be a medieval fake. Now, one of the scholars who first examined the purported burial cloth of Jesus has said the dating study made a big mistake and that the shroud is, in fact, old enough to have been what it is said to be. In a video recording made shortly before he died of cancer in 2005, and recently shown…

NEW BOOK FROM A.R.’S JEANE MANNING UNVEILS ENERGY BREAKTHROUGHS With gas prices soaring to unheard-of heights, many of those who have read in the pages of Atlantis Rising about ex­traordinary breakthrough energy technologies have been left to wonder why they have read so little about such devel­opments elsewhere. Now a new book from Atlantis Rising columnist Jeane Manning and energy consultant Joel Garbon blows the lid off what has been described as a virtual alternative energy coverup. Breakthrough Power: How Quantum-leap New Energy Inventions Can…

SHOCKING NEWS FROM MOON AND MARS Maverick researchers like Dave Talbott and Walt Thornhill have long argued that many of the strange phenomena ob­served in the universe at large and locally in the solar system, such as the ropelike rills on Europa (one of Jupiter’s moons) and the gigantic canyon on Mars (the Valles Marinaris) are the result of enormous electrical discharges, great arcs of energy between planets or moons. These great bolts of lightning, they believe, go far toward explaining many ancient mysteries. Their…

New Robot to Explore Strange Passages in the Great Pyramid The days of robotically exploring the interior chambers of the Great Pyramid at Giza are not over. In fact, a team from Leeds University in England, under the supervision of Egyptian Antiquities Director Zahi Hawass, will attempt to go where no one has gone before, at least since the days the ancient structure was built. At issue are so-called shafts sloping upward from the north and south walls of the Queens chamber which appear to…
