Mexico’s Amazing Pyramid

“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…

Can We See the Future?

According to his interview on the Orion Books web site, Dr. Danny Penman has “a degree in Applied Biology and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Liverpool,” plus a “diploma in Newspaper Journalism from City Univer­sity in London.” He writes for both the magazine New Scientist and the British paper Daily Mail. In a piece for the Mail, the self-described “hard-bitten skeptic” recently detailed a psi encounter which shattered his own belief in a world confined solely to 3-space, the rational and the…

The Rosslyn Motet

In April 30, 2007, Scotland’s newspaper of record, The Scotsman, published a short article headlined “Musical Secret Uncovered in Chapel Carvings,” about a father-and-son team of Edinburgh musicians, Tommy and Stuart Mitchell, who claimed to have “found a secret piece of music hidden in carvings at Rosslyn Chapel.” It was, Stuart said, like finding a “compact disc from the 15th century.” Two weeks later, after the story had been picked up by the BBC, the AP and Reuters wire services, such high-profile newspapers as the…

The Quest for a Balanced Perspective

Since Atlantis Rising first saw print, we have made it our business to challenge the abuses of the prevailing ‘scientif­ic’ authorities. Indeed, we have tried not to miss an opportunity to point out the shortcomings of orthodoxy wherever we found them. The pervasive corruption, materialism, mediocrity, etc., to say nothing of the suppression of contrary points of view, have not inspired our confidence. Nevertheless, having said that, we don’t want to give the impression that we are blind to problems at the other end of…

Ancient Storytellers

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”). Homer and Atlantis In the past I have thoroughly enjoyed most of your articles containing anything on ancient Egypt. I have ignored article inaccuracies in the past but (Steven) Sora’s article, “Echoes of Atlantis from Homer” in issue #64 is filled with so many…

MYSTERY SKELETON SEEN ON ICEBERG In June a retired Canadian couple snapped a picture off the east coast of Newfoundland of what appears to be a large mammalian skeleton jutting from an iceberg. The picture was widely circulated and caused quite a stir around the world. Scientists in Canada and elsewhere were at a loss to identify the remains but speculated that it could have been preserved in the ice for quite some time. In the photo it appears that there is some tissue still…

ENTRANCE SOUGHT TO “HOLLOW EARTH” If you have an extra $20,000 and can bring your own food, you might be able to take a trip to the center of the earth next summer, but not by burrowing through the crust in some high tech machine or even hiking down through laby­rinthine cave passages, as in Jules Verne’s classic tale Journey to the Center of the Earth. Instead, you could book passage on a nuclear powered icebreaker which in the summer of 2008 will, it has…

CHINESE WRITING 8,000 YEARS OLD Until recently, the beginnings of writing in the form of symbolic characters, not just pictures, was said to go back about 4,500 years. Now new discoveries in northwestern China may push the threshold of such writing back to 8,000 years ago. The Damaidi rock carvings were first discovered in the 1980’s and contained many primitive pictograms of the type found in similar settings around the world, but subsequent research has turned up more than 2,000 pictorial symbols which have been…

MATH ABILITY COMES BUILT IN Learning arithmetic should not be such a big deal, seems to be the implication of a just-completed study at the Uni­versity of Nottingham and Harvard. Epoch Times on-line news reports that children who haven’t yet learned the basic rules of arithmetic, like place value and the addition table, still easily solve illustrated problems involving approxi­mate addition and subtraction of symbolic numbers between five and 98. According to the study, the children performed well above chance, and, in the process, astonished…

Keys to Tapping Zero Point Energy

When Los Alamos national laboratory physicist Peter Milonni wrote a book titled The Quantum Vacuum, and Aca­demic Press published it in 1994, Thomas Valone decided it was time to do his own Ph.D. thesis on a topic that Milon­ni’s book dealt with—zero point energy. In addition to his thesis, Dr. Valone more recently decided to make the information accessible to the layperson. The result is his new book Zero Point Energy: The Fuel of the Future. Its premise is that soon we’ll be able to…

Kanapoi Humorous

One of my favorite songs from the late 1960s had the title and refrain “I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in.” It was a hit for the First Edition, with Kenny Rogers singing the lead and Glenn Campbell playing lead guitar, which is a bit strange, considering that the song became a psychedelic anthem and a favorite of Jimmy Hendrix. Both Rogers and Campbell went country (nothing wrong with country—I like that, too—but these artists arrived there from a different…

ICE AGE: Fact or Fiction?

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,…

Scientists Challenge Darwin

In 1997, British embryologist Michael Richardson and his colleagues published the result of a study which compared drawings said to be of embryos with actual embryos. The drawings under consideration had been published in many secondary school textbooks promoting the Darwinian concept of evolution. Richardson was quoted in the prestigious journal Science: “It looks like it’s turning out to be one of the most famous fakes in biology.” In fact, and worse, this was no recent fraud. Nor was its discovery recent. The embryo drawings…

Weather Goes to War

Mark Twain is often quoted, “Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it.” Well, maybe Twain was wrong, about the second part anyway. Researcher Jerry E. Smith thinks so and argues accordingly in a new book Weather Warfare from Adventures Unlimited Press. Beneath are some of his arguments. Ed. Mankind has always had a keen interest in the weather. Throughout human history we have seen the effects of weath­er on crops, and the loss of life and property through the violence…

Science vs. Levitation

The most celebrated levitation in recorded history took place on the Sea of Galilee some two thousand years ago and was witnessed by only a few humble fishermen.  Science discreetly smiles at such fables. Legend has it that on October 4, 1630, Joseph of Cupertino, an Italian monk, was assisting in a procession honor­ing St. Francis of Assisi when he suddenly was lifted into the sky and hovered there for some time before a crowd. Upon descending, he was so embarrassed that he ran to his…

Who Were the Olmecs?

In January of 2007 it was announced that the ruins of a lost city had been discovered in the Valley of Mexico, just 25 miles south of Mexico City. Dubbed Zazacatla, the city was found near Xochitepec by Mexican archaeologist Giselle Canto. The ruins, it was said, had been left by the Olmecs—the strange and ancient culture believed to be the mother culture of Central America. Reports at the time, however, expressed surprise that this “new” Olmec city was not on the Gulf Coast, where…

There’s nothing small about Sondra Ray. At 5’11”, she has the stature of a basketball player (indeed, she was that sport’s star at her high school in Grafton, Iowa), the strong bone structure of her Swedish / German heritage, a huge, engaging smile and a deep, earthy voice easily given over to hearty laughter. Her address book is even larger—she’s hung out with some pretty “big” people—Sai Baba, Hopi Elders, entertainment stars, and just about every spiritual leader out there. But here’s the really big…

The Asteroids

“Life begins when you get out of the grandstand into the game.”—P. L. Debevoise The first asteroid was discovered on January 1, 1801 by Giuseppe Piazzi in Italy. He thought he saw a new comet. Pi­azzi named the object Ceres, after the Roman goddess of agriculture. Over the next few years three similar “goddess­es” were located, which were named Pallas, Vesta and Juno. By the close of the 19th century several hundred of these small bodies had been identified. They are called asteroids, which means…

Navigating the Future

It may take an expert to appreciate some discoveries. In fact, we are led to believe, that without the evaluation of the proper authorities we can’t be sure just what we should believe or not. Unlike some publications, though, this one is dedicated to the notion that common sense is the best test for the worth of supposed new breakthroughs. So, with this issue’s crop of DVDs we report what people say; you be the judge of their true worth. CROSS OF THOTH Crichton Miller…
