The Cranial Deformation Mystery

By David H. Childress

Many of you may remember the old Saturday Night Live routine with Dan Akroyd and gang as the strange family of “Coneheads” (later made into a feature movie). This bizarre family of comical weirdos had long, bald heads that were about twice as long as a normal human head—heads that came to a sharp point at the top, hence the name “coneheads.” As funny and strange as this may appear, such “coneheads” did, and do, exist! In fact, the remains of “coneheads” of various shapes…

New Study Sets Out to Unearth the Secrets of Stonehenge While the debate over the true age of Stonehenge—that massive circle of stone megaliths in southwest England—has raged for centuries, scientists now say they are determined to settle the argument once and for all. Thus a new effort has been undertaken to find out with certainty just how old the mysterious site truly is. Conventional wisdom cur­rently has it at about 5,000 years.

9,000-YEAR-OLD DENTAL DRILLING Whether or not our prehistoric ancestors could match many aspects of modern technology may be subject to debate. But in at least one area, the latest evidence is painfully clear. At around 9,000 years ago (over 4,000 years earlier than previously believed) primitive dentists were drilling holes in teeth and doing so with much skill, though possibly not without considerable discomfort to their patients. According to research published in the journal Nature in April, skulls recently found in a Pakistani graveyard bear…

Has the Hubble Telescope Validated the Dead Sea Scrolls? The Dead Sea Scrolls are corroborated by the Hubble Space Telescope, claims researcher J. Paul Hutchins. In his forthcoming book, Hubble Reveals Creation by an Awe-Inspiring Power, Hutchins argues that a passage in an ancient copy of the book of Isaiah included among the Scrolls found in the caves at Qumran reveals knowledge of interstellar forces far beyond that conventionally associated with the people of that place and time. The key passage is Isaiah 40:25-26: “To…

Gnosis & the Secrets of Solomon’s Temple

BY PHILIP GARDINER

There is a journey that we all have to take—life. It is one of those things from which there is no escape and it is the root of most ancient myths, fables and tales. In this context we open new eyes to the mysteries of our past and see them with clearer vision. We are born, it is generally thought, with no knowledge whatsoever other than some minor genetic memories, and many of us simply follow the patterns that life and our peers throw at…

Appreciating Ancient Advancement

BY J. DOUGLAS KENYON

Among those who have argued in their writings that there once was a great and shining—albeit forgotten to histo­ry—fountainhead of civilization whose ghosts even now continue to haunt us, few have been more eloquent than John Michell. The author of over a score of works on ancient mysteries, sacred geometry, UFOs, unexplained phenomena and the like, Michell is familiar to American readers primarily through his visionary classic The View Over Atlantis (origi­nally published by Thames and Hudson in Great Britain in 1969 and a few…

Earth Energy and the Ancients

By Thomas Karl Dietrich

“It was now clear that ancient people were utilizing the invisible energies of the Earth in their rites as they venerated the natural world. The current passed right through the massive barrow, surrounded by a deep ditch, forming a node point at its center…We were being drawn back to a world where this temple had been deliberately planned and constructed to take account of natural energies…Here, for the first time, marked out by rows of standing stones, was a graphic display of how the energy…

Ancient Geometric Wisdom

BY MARSHA OAKS

For some of us, the subjects of numbers and geometry get our full attention only when very special people are doing the talking. Here’s what we mean.
