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…

Atlantis and the Neanderthals

BY COLIN WILSON

Charles Hapgood, an American professor of history, became convinced in 1989 that a civilization, ‘with high levels of science,’ had existed at least 100,000 years ago. In the mid-1950s, Hapgood had written a book called Earth’s Shifting Crust, to which Einstein contributed an In­troduction, arguing that the whole crust of the earth undergoes periodic ‘slippages,’ one of which in 9500 B.C. had caused the North Pole to move from Hudson Bay to its present position. And in 1966, his Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings…

The Cycles of Danger

BY WILLIAM HAMILTON III

The generally accepted picture from mainstream science is of a gradual evolutionary development of the geosphere and biosphere up to the present day. Any hint that there is some anomaly in this progression is met with skepticism from the scientific community, an attitude with which read­ers of this magazine have become all…

Aquarius Ascending

BY JULIE GILLENTINE

“The wheel goes round and round, some are up and some are on the down, and still the wheel goes round.”—Josephine Pollard With the sky as a perennial reference point Earth rotates daily and orbits the sun yearly. Another of earth’s cycles causes an imaginary circle to be traced in the sky by the poles. Called the Great Year, and composed of twelve cosmic months which are the astrological ages, this cycle lasts roughly 26,000 years. As the orientation of the north pole shifts relative…
