The Politics of Time

By John Chambers

In the early 1970s, a group of Soviet mathematicians at Moscow State University led by Professor A.T. Fomenko came forth with an astonishing proposition: All the dates in history are wrong; the recorded history of mankind really started no earlier than AD 900 and the majority of all historical events took place after AD 1300. The Moscow mathematicians were building on the work of Russian mathematician/topologist Nicolai Aleksandrovich Morozov (1854–1946), who in 1924 challenged all traditional dates in his book, Christ: A History of Human…

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….

Ancient High Tech Revisited

In the late 1990’s, Atlantis Rising set out to produce three video documentaries that covered the areas of greatest interest to our chosen audience. The plan was: I would write and narrate the productions, while my partner and frequent Atlantis Rising cover artist, Tom Miller, who had a long filmmaking resume, would direct. Technologies of the Gods, which dealt with evidence for advanced ancient technology, came first. Later, Clash of the Geniuses would get into suppressed technology, and finally, The Atlantis Connection—English Sacred Sites, would…

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…

Updating the Dating Picture

By William B. Stoecker

Back in the nineteen-fifties, when, to paraphrase poet Robert Burns, “God was in his heaven and all was right with the world,” mainstream archaeologists, physical anthropologists, and geologists thought they had it all figured out—or, at least, so it seemed. Civilization—agriculture, woven fabrics, fired ceramics, large stone buildings, and writing, they argued, dated back only five to six thousand years BP (before the present). Only the shortest ocean voyages were made in that early period, with seafarers hugging the coastline.  Man, as a species, dated…

ICE AGE: Fact or Fiction?

BY SUSAN MARTINEZ, PH.D.

In the beginning, the future earth was but a molten mass of fiery gases. Like all corporeal worlds, its destiny was to begin in fire and end in ice. For 19th century science, this was a stable dictum—“A constant heat loss from a once fiery earth.” The flaming earth, of course, had to cool quite a bit before we could go for a walk in the park. But it is the steady and trifling loss of heat that concerns us most. According to Isaac Asimov,…

Inquisition

BY PETER BROS

Back in the forties Immanuel Velikovsky, a Russian born credentialed scholar and a language expert, came upon an ancient manuscript that led him to believe that the plagues mentioned in the Bible had actually occurred in history. Buried beneath ancient accounts of reality, he found what he thought might be the source of the biblical plagues, the appearance of a huge comet which, as depicted in ancient Sumerian seals, did battle with the Earth as it passed by in the skies. Velikovsky concluded that the…

Late Arrival?

By Mark Andrew

Many authors and researchers have proposed that our Moon arrived in the skies above Earth much more recently than the conventional estimate (that it formed 4.5 billion years ago or thereabouts). Some have suggested that the wandering Moon was captured intact by Earth around 12,000 years ago, while one author has suggested as early as 1200 BC. So when did our lunar companion arrive on the scene? Firstly, it is important to establish that, while mainstream science has its own theories about the formation of…
