Great Pyramid

The Unknown Catacombs of Giza

By Philip Coppens

In recent months, rumors and evidence of excavations and underground passages on and under the Giza Plateau have surfaced. But why are the local authorities mocking and downplaying these? The Giza Plateau hosts the only surviving wonder of the ancient world: the Great Pyramid. The site as a whole continues to intrigue many, and at one time every archaeological discovery there received massive publicity. But in recent years, the excavations and discoveries at Giza are receiving almost no media attention. Why? The central figure in all…

Mexico’s Amazing Pyramid

BY FRANK JOSEPH

“There are in Mexico the ruins of a prehistoric sacred city (Teotihuacan) which apparently in that country had the significance that Mecca possesses for Moslems, or Lourdes for Catholics.”—Mid-20th Century Atlantologist, Alexander Braghine Thirty three miles north of Mexico City lies the grandest archaeological zone on the continent, Teotihuacan. At the zenith of its power, believed to be about fourteen centuries ago, the ancient megalopolis may have embraced as many as 300,000 inhabitants, who dominated Middle America to a greater extent than any people before…

The Pyramid Electric

CHRISTOPHER DUNN

In January 2011, an important and historic exploration took place inside the Great Pyramid. However, the remarkable evidence that was discovered seemed to pass into history without fuss or fanfare. A small article in the New Scientist magazine, with the promise of a future scholarly report on the findings, seemed to be an extremely muted response to an event that has traditionally been promoted to attract millions of “pyramid watchers” across the world. Has the interest in pyramid discoveries waned, or was this exploration another…

Giza’s Cosmic Blueprint

BY ANDREW COLLINS

In 1994 Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert’s ground-breaking book The Orion Mystery theorized that the Pyramids of Giza reflected the astronomical positions of the three “belt” stars of Orion, a constellation linked with the destination of the king’s spirit in his role as Osiris, the ancient Egyptian god of death and resurrection. It was this unique concept that opened the way to visualizing Giza’s famous pyramid field as constructed as part of some grand cosmological scheme. The OCT (Orion correlation), as it became known, was…

Linda Goodman & the Secret of the Hollywood Cross

BY PHILIP COPPENS

Some stories are weirder than anything Hollywood screenwriters could dream up. But then, facts are often stranger than fiction. How would you react if you were told that the phallus of the Egyptian god Osiris is possibly located un­derneath a buried pyramid in the very center of Hollywood—Los Angeles? Doesn’t this sound like something from a movie? Well, it isn’t. The site where Osiris’ phallus is supposedly buried is known as the Hollywood Cross, which sits on a small hill next to Interstate 101, at…

The Bloody Politics of Archaeology

By Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.

The past is the past, and perhaps it is a truism that we can never know the past with absolute certainty. However it does not follow that the past should be manipulated or mythologized for present social, personal, and political agendas—yet that is what all too often happens, sometimes very purposefully and consciously, other times inadvertently. Often we fall into the trap of seeing what we want to see, seeing that which suits our current purposes. It occurs among laypeople, political leaders, archaeologists, and historians….

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…

Challenging the Consensus

BY J. DOUGLAS KENYON

In 2005 Inner Traditions/Bear published Forbidden History, a collection of Atlantis Rising articles dealing with pre­historic technologies, extraterrestrial intervention and the suppressed origins of civilization. The book did so well— becoming one of the publisher’s bestselling titles and already translated into several languages—that in 2006 we all decided to do it again. With the publication of Forbidden Religion that spring, Atlantis Rising offered another collection of penetrating articles by some of the best writers in the business dealing with the suppressed heresies of the west….

Mammoths Blasted from Outer Space Recently reexamined bison remains and wooly mammoth tusks in both Siberia and Alaska bear unmistakable evi­dence of being blasted by debris from outer space. In a report, which the BBC called “Startling”, to a November meet­ing of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, scientists offered detailed evidence that holes in the animal bones were caused by high-speed collisions with tiny fragments coming from meteoric impact explosions of some kind. The fragments are magnetic and made of a combination of…

THE GIZA TEMPLATE Researcher Unlocks Advanced Geometric Secrets in the Ancient Site Pennsylvania woodcarver Ed Nightingale is raising some eyebrows in alternative Egyptology circles. His elegant geo­metric solution to the complete layout of the Giza Plateau is revealing a level of sophistication for the ancient build­ers long suspected but unproven, at least as far as mainstream archaeology is concerned. Nightingale shows how har­monically related circles with a ratio of 4 to 3 to 2 precisely convey the layout of the vast arrangement and its nine…
