The Roswell Glyphs

“Since it is virtually certain that these craft do not originate in any country on earth, considerable specula­tion has centered around what their point of origin might be and how they get here. Mars was and remains a possibility, although some scientists, most notably Dr. Menzel, consider it more likely that we are dealing with beings from another solar system entirely. Numerous examples of what appear to be a form of writing were found in the wreckage. Efforts to decipher these have remained largely unsuccessful.”—Eisenhower…

India’s Mystic Military

The Chinese invaded Tibet, and the Dalai Lama fled. This much many people know. Fewer know, though, of the sys­tematic, ongoing ravaging and suppression of Tibetan culture, institutions, monuments, writings, and above all, the people themselves, who have been made strangers and subhumans in their own land, deliberately dispossessed by waves of Chinese immigrants brought in to Sinize Tibet. And the Tibetan monks have been the direct and particular targets of Chinese repression, for it is they who iconify the essence of the Tibetan culture,…

The Real Secret Society Behind the DaVinci Code

As anyone knows, who has read Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, the plot revolves around the clandestine activities of an ancient secret society known as the Priory of Sion. The actual existence of this society, claims Brown, is one of the few irrefutable truths woven into his fictional novel. This may have been true when he was writing his manuscript, but recently the authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail, the non-fiction book that introduced Brown to the Priory, public­ly stated that the organization appears…

The Price of Progress

If you have been part of the Atlantis Rising circle for a while, you have probably noticed that with issue #57 some of our prices changed, a development which, in all probability, did not make you happy. So, in the interest of maintain­ing our respected position as a merchant in the public bazaar, and of maintaining the appreciation of our best cus­tomers, if you will forgive us, we would like to take this opportunity to present our wares in the most favorable light. First, there…

Galactic Resonance

Writing to Atlantis Rising, via snail mail or e-mail is the best, but not the only way to make your views known to our readers. There are also “forums” on the Atlantis Rising web site (go to www.AtlantisRising.com and select “Discus­sions”). Cycles of Danger In William Hamilton III’s article “The Cycles of Danger,” (Atlantis Rising, #56) readers need to know that he is speaking about the orbit of our solar system around our Milky Way’s Galactic Center. This orbit is, as he specifies, on the…

ONCE LOST JUDAS GOSPEL PROVOKES NEW QUESTIONS The story of Judas Iscariot—long reviled by orthodox Christians as the betrayer of Jesus—is getting some serious re­telling of late. A newly translated Gospel of Judas copied down some 1700 years ago has suddenly reappeared, caus­ing considerable excitement in scholarly circles, and perhaps a little consternation in others. Even though the histor­ical authenticity of the document is unquestioned, the actual truth of its assertions remains a matter of hot dispute. Unveiled in April by the National Geographic Society,…

BROWN WINS IN UK COURT Dan Brown and his publisher are off the hook. In a trial that commanded massive attention around the world, and just in time for release of the new Tom Hanks movie version, a London judge has found the author of The Da Vinci Code not guilty of plagiarism as accused by the authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail. Though the April decision was a stunning blow to authors Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln, the outcome was welcome news…

ANTIGRAVITY BREAKTHROUGH IN ESA LAB For decades some researchers have believed that gravity is essentially an analogue of magnetism and that ultimately we will learn to control it in similar ways. Among the possibilities dreamed of have been anti-gravity devices, and even time travel, but heretofore all this has been dismissed as idle fantasizing at best. Now, however, a new break­through experiment funded by the European Space agency may change all that. The so-called gravito-magnetic effect has now been measured in a major laboratory. The…

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…

Is the Energy a Cause or an Effect?

When this column appears it’ll be time to complete planning for the summer’s travels. How about taking in a couple of new-science meetings? If you want an excuse to fly to Munich, Germany, on July 7 the Perendev company is launching Mike Brady’s elec­tromagnetic motor. Check the web site www.perendev. com to see if it’s still happening. Closer to home, July 14 – 17 is the U.S. Psychotronics Association (USPA) meeting, in Laughlin, Nevada. About 15 years ago while reporting for Explore New Dimensions magazine,…

Actually Doing Forbidden Archaeology

On March, I gave a talk about my work at the annual conference of the International Fortean Organization (INFO), held at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore (this extraordinary museum full of intriguing contempo­rary art is well worth a visit). Charles Fort (1874-1972) was an American author who searched through scientific and popular publications, collecting accounts of strange and unusual phenomena, ranging from rains of fishes to instanc­es of archaeological evidence for extreme human antiquity. These anomalies are called Fortean phenomena by Fort’s followers….

Prague’s other Universe

If there was ever a break in the space-time continuum, it came on the afternoon of November 8, 1620, on the slopes of White Mountain hill just outside the city of Prague, then the capital of the Kingdom of Bohemia and today the cap­ital of The Czech Republic. In a little over an hour, the 20,000-man army of the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II defeated the 25,000-man army of the King of Bohemia Frederick V. The Battle of White Mountain marked the beginning of Europe’s…

Atlantis & The Great Pyramid

The foreign tourists aboard our bus were worried because one of its headlights was out and the other flickered uncer­tainly. Combined with our driver’s kamikaze-like recklessness in maneuvering through the densely packed night­time streets over-crowded with cars, mules, carts, pedestrians and other careening buses, some catastrophic mishap seemed inevitable. But we were unaware that the free-for-all traffic patterns of modern Cairo represented standard driving practices in the United Arab Republic. All of us wanted to see the Great Pyramid after dark, under the moon and…

Mixing Apples & Moons

On November 15, 2005, PBS broadcast a Nova segment titled Newton’s Dark Secrets. It was interesting for several reasons, not the least of which was the producers’ honesty about Newton’s fanatical religious beliefs that played deep­ly into his conclusions about the nature of the solar system. The program begins by pointing out Newton’s great invention, the reflecting telescope. The Nova program asserts Newton invented the telescope and kept it as a toy until it was discovered by a friend and brought to London. Actual­ly, Newton’s…

California’s Gravity Hills

Among the strangest of the many unexplained mysteries on our planet is a phenomenon known as the “gravity hill.” Also called a magnetic hill, antigravity hill or spook hill, many of them can be found across the planet. Gravity hills can be defined as a particular location where the laws of gravity don’t seem to apply. In virtually eve­ry case, a gravity hill involves a short section of road, usually no more than a few hundred yards long, which appears to go uphill. But does…

Dr. Richard Gerber has just finished the half-hour commute from his two-story home in the Detroit suburbs, where he enjoyed a vegetarian breakfast on his deck, which overlooks a large garden, beautiful landscaping and the peaceful flow and gentle sounds of a nearby river. Well nourished in body, mind and spirit, he is now sitting in his office at St. John Macomb Hospital just outside Livonia, Michigan, where he is a staff internist. He arrives early each day, not to study charts, but to pray…

Hydraulics and the Ancients

The crowded party was being held during the 1986 World Science Fiction Convention at the futuristic Hyatt Hotel in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Over the hubbub of writers and readers and fans, I overhead a young woman conversing about her experiences as an archaeologist in the Peruvian Andes. Drink in hand, I approached her and introduced myself as a person with an interest in Inca technology. “Have you ever heard of the large carved stone that the Incas made,” I asked, “a model of a topographical…

Approaching the Quantum Leap

Are the children of today unlike any other generation of record? Research statisticians like William Strauss and Neil Howe in their book, Millennials Rising: The Next Great Generation, have categorized those born since around 1982 as “Millennials”—the media calls them “Generation Y”—and comment how similar in temperament they are to the Baby Boomer Generation (1943-1960) and the G.I. Joes (1901-1924). Another book, The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived, by Lee Carroll and Jan Tober, based on channeled messages via Carroll, puzzles over why…

Mercury, Messenger of the Gods

“Words are of course the most powerful drug used by mankind.”—Rudyard Kipling Mercury lives at the Sun’s front door and as a result has the smallest orbit of the planets, only eighty-eight days, two to three times faster than Venus or Earth. But in contrast to Mercury’s speedy orbit the planet rotates very slowly on its axis, making only one rotation in fifty-nine Earth days, leaving one side of the planet in darkness for weeks at a time. Mercury’s orbit is also quite eccentric causing…

America’s Ambiguous Beginnings

It has be said, that even paranoids have enemies. Sometimes those enemies might be other paranoids. The one thing most conspiracy theories have in common, be they of the right or the left, is fear and plenty of it. The idea of collu­sion behind the scenes may scare some people, but it really depends on who is doing the colluding and who is being kept in the dark. Certainly America’s victory in World War II was made possible because secret plans were made in se­cret…
