Human Evolution & the Cygnus Constellation?

DR. GREG LITTLE

The evolution of modern man has long been one of the greatest mysteries of time. When did “modern” humans first appear? When did they make the first art? When did they build the first temples? When were the first true cities con­structed? And what was it that inspired these developments? These questions form a huge puzzle but the puzzle’s pieces continue to change. For example, what archaeological site across the world is accepted as the “first city?” What specific caves contain the “first art?” Nearly…

The Fate of the Watchers

By Andrew Collins

The Genesis Secret by Thomas Knox (HarperCollins, 2009, and see also the website http://thegenesissecret .com) is a novel centered around the discovery in southeast Turkey of the proto-Neolithic megalithic complex of Gobekli Tepe, constructed ca. 10,000 BC by an unknown race of people at the end of the last Ice Age. Thomas Knox is the nom-de-plume of British journalist Sean Thomas, who first contacted me back in 2007. He had become interested in Gobekli Tepe, which I’d written about extensively since visiting there and nearby…

Waiting for the Apocalypse

By J. Douglas Kenyon

In Timaeus and Critias, Plato’s account of Atlantis (written in 360 BC), the island nation, was said to have sunk around 9600 BC after millennia of history. In the seventeenth century the Bishop of Ireland, James Ussher, published a biblical chronology declaring that the creation occurred on Sunday, October 23, 4004 BC (Julian calendar). Today mainstream natural historians insist that Earth is between four and five billion years old, and that the first humans like us arrived about one hundred thousand years ago, which, they…

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…

NEW CHALLENGES TO CIVILIZATION’S AGE Turkey and Syria are both providing new evidence for the greater antiquity of civilization, and establishment re­searchers are once again being challenged to reexamine their assumptions and readjust their timelines. In October, archaeologists reported finding a building in Syria dating to 8,800 B.C. and in the meantime artifacts in Turkey have been dated to 10,000 B.C. The Syrian building is a large circular affair near the town of Ja’de on the banks of the Euphrates. Eric Coqueug­niot, a French archaeologist…

200,000-Year-Old Factory Found Modern mass production is considered one of the hallmarks of the industrial age—a sure sign of advanced society. Until re­cently, the basics of such technology were thought to be no older than about 40,000 years and to be the exclusive domain of modern humans. But, as in almost every area of human development, we now learn that we must push our concept of their beginnings back much, much further into the very distant past. Now archaeologists in Israel have discovered evidence of…

Ancient Cities in the Forest

By William B. Stoecker

It has been said that we might not even recognize an alien life form should we encounter one, nor the ruins of an ali­en civilization (at least not on Mars, if NASA and JPL have their way). But how about ancient ruins here on Earth? Are we often looking in the wrong places and overlooking evidence of cultures that do not fit our preconceived no­tions? Can we even define “civilization”? There is reason to believe that the ruins of ice age “Atlantean” cultures may lie…

Rama’s Bridge

By Dr. Rita Louise

Historians, archaeologists and researchers into our distant past insist that civilized life began on the Earth about five thousand years ago. They point to an absence of hard evidence supporting the existence of a preexisting culture prior to the rise of the Sumerians and the Egyptians, and despite recently discovered ruins of advanced construction at Turkey’s Gobeckli Tepe dating to over twelve thousand years ago. When alternative historians such as John Anthony West, Robert Schoch, and Graham Hancock propose that structures on the Giza plateau…

Big Science on Trial

by Martin Ruggles

Late in November of 2009 a hacker broke through the computer security system of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, and copied over 3000 pages of e-mail and computer code which were shortly disseminated across the Internet. Revealed in the documents was what climate warming skeptics soon trumpeted as a shocking picture of scientific fraud and deceit of enormous significance. The ensuing internet/science tsunami was, and continues to be, of near biblical proportions. And while global warming…

Between Ice Ages

By William B. Stoecker

Today the government and the media bombard us with assertions that due to our production of carbon dioxide, the world will soon end. We are led to believe that our puny efforts can significantly alter the climate of our entire planet. In reality, we are completely at the mercy of vast forces over which we have no control. Ice ages come and go due to a complex interaction of purely natural forces and events, including Earth’s axial wobble and changes in its orbit, as well…
