Enigma of the Crystal Skulls

With the opening of the movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, millions have been learning for the first time about one of the most remarkable stories in the annals of archaeology, the mystery of the crystal skulls. The movie may be fiction, but the tale of the crystal skulls is not only filled with plenty of Hollywood-style adventure, a lot of it is true. One of the most fascinating substances in nature, crystal lends itself uniquely to various adaptations, including in­formation…

America’s Mound Builders: The Mystery Deepens

The term Mound Builder typically elicits images of well-known earthen mounds found all over America. These in­clude the huge 100-foot tall Monks Mound at Cahokia, Illinois, the complex of platform mounds at Moundville, Ala­bama, a spectacular effigy mound such as Ohio’s Serpent Mound or any of the thousands of other mounds still exist­ing all over the country. Until 1997, the oldest American mound, defined as a manmade formation of earth or stone constructed with a de­liberate intent, was at Poverty Point, Louisiana. The massive Poverty…

Can We See into the Future?

On 21 October, 1966, at 9:15 in the morning, a huge pile of coal slag and debris, precariously perched on the side of a mountain and destabilized by underground water and rainfall, came crashing down on the Welsh town of Aberfan. When the tragedy was over and the final death toll computed, 144 lives were lost, most of them children attending the Pantglas Junior School, upon which the main part of the avalanche of black choking slurry descended. The Aber­fan disaster was felt throughout Britain,…

Distinguishing Reality from Illusion

As David Childress points out in his piece on crystal skulls elsewhere in this issue, there is some truth to the story in the latest Indiana Jones epic, even if the producers did get somewhat carried away. The same can be said for many Hollywood productions, including some that are even more outrageous. The producers of Tinseltown like to grab a fact or two as their starting point and then to venture into the imaginary. Mutant powers, as in X-Men, are based on actual medical…

On the Cutting Edge

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. (You can go to www.AtlantisRising.com and select “Discussions”.) Mega Saws Over the past years I’ve read various articles with regard to (Christopher Dunn’s) theories of how the ancient Egyptians used technology. The recent article that you had in the July/August 2008 issue of Atlantis Rising magazine titled “Mega Saws of…

GENETIC MATERIAL CAME FROM SPACE When ancient meteorites rained down on earth they brought more than fire and rocks from the sky. They brought the raw genetic material for life. That, at least, is the conclusion of scientific researchers from Europe and the USA. Freshly published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, the new study is based on a careful study of the Murchison meteorite which crashed in Australia in 1969. In its materials scientists found the molecules uracil and xanthine which are…

THE SPACE ARCHAEOLOGISTS The advances of civilization have been compared to climbing a mountain. As we reach new heights, we are able for the first time to see the long path we have travelled stretched out beneath us, and with the advantage of altitude we can see where we have gone right and where we have gone wrong. Moreover, we can see patterns in our progress of which we might have been unaware at the time we passed through. While that notion may seen to…

Patent Sought for Flying Disk For years, self-described UFO witnesses have reported disk-shaped craft that moved quickly and silently and like noth­ing we are accustomed to on earth. Such “craft” have long been scoffed at by mainstream scientists as beyond the possibilities of physics. Now it turns out that the scoffers may be wrong and that UFO observers may be proven more plausible that once thought. A University of Florida professor has designed and filed for a patent on a plasma-propelled flying saucer that he…

Still More News

Vatican Open to Aliens, but Not Dan Brown As the Vatican has it, there may be alien beings in outer space (perhaps even without original sin). Dan Brown, how­ever, remains unredeemed. In June, the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic church made itself clear on both the possi­bility of alien life and the chances that the Da Vinci Code and it forthcoming prequel Angels and Demons have any truth in them. Life on Mars cannot be ruled out, says Father Gabriel Funes, the Pope’s chief astronomer….

Could the Wave of the Future Be in Water?

In the 1967 film The Graduate, at a party an industrialist takes the college-grad character aside and indicates he has a secret to impart as his graduation gift. The audience knows the young man has not yet settled on a career direction. The middle-aged man whispers one word of advice. “Plastics.” That scene was enjoyed as a classic comic moment, heightened by the rebellious anti-establishment mood of many in the 1960s audiences. The youthful character played by Dustin Hoffman was confused, but not about to…

A 3-ft.-high tablet romantically dubbed “Gabriel’s Revelation” could challenge the uniqueness of the idea of the Christian Resurrection. • Asa Jackson’s Perpetual Motion Wheel In the 1860’s, a Lebanon, Tennessee mechanic built a perpetual motion wheel.

Bolivian Footprints from the Deep Past

I first learned of the extremely old Bolivian footprints, which are attracting international attention, at the Earth Transformation Conference on the Kona coast of the Big Island of Hawaii in May of this year. I had been invited there to speak about my book Human Devolution: A Vedic Alternative to Darwin’s Theory. It was my first visit to Hawaii in about fifty years. Last time I was there, I was about eight years old, and my family was on vacation. We went to Ki­lauea, the…

The Super Collision Threat

The European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, recently constructed the world’s largest energy particle accelerator/collider outside Bern, Switzerland. After a few delays the collider, known as the Large Hadronic Collider (LHC) was set to begin operations in May or June of this year. The LHC is a behemoth, contained in a circu­lar, concrete-lined tunnel of 16.5 miles, which crosses the border between Switzerland and France at four locations, though most of it lies in France. It is buried 100 meters underground, and the…

Whatever Happened to Gene Mollinet’s Hydraulic Pinto?

This story comes by way of my mechanic, Fred Stevens, whose family at the time ran a radiator shop, called ABC Ra­diator & General Welding, in Goleta, California at a place called Goleta Craft Center—an automotive repair complex. The family business was in #14, and a remarkable retiree from military aerospace rented #12. That man was inventor Gene Mollinet, a retired facility engineer for the little-known-to-most world’s leading deployable countermeasure firm Tracor. Tracor is top dog when it comes to expendables (flares, chaff, active jammers,…

Time Travel Evidence

Our world is filled with many anomalies, most of them well documented and incontrovertible, which demonstrate that space and time are not what we think they are. One of the strangest of these is an enigmatic object which ap­pears in a painting in the little church of Montalcino in Italy, dating to over four hundred years old. The object can be classified as a genuine “out-of-place” artifact, because it incorporates several apparently advanced aspects in its de­sign. But the context in which it was placed…

Asylum from the TERROR

In the very rural, thick forested land of Bradford County, Pennsylvania, on a scenic bend of the North branch of the Susquehanna River exists a 1600-acre preserve called the Azilum, or in English, the Asylum. On its northwest boun­dary is a huge Standing Stone, twenty-five feet high that served as a meeting place for the Iroquois from at least a century before Europeans arrived. The land is protected by both the river and the thick woods. Even today the area is best described as “out…

Rosslyn Chapel & 2012

The inscription on William Sinclair’s grave in Rosslyn Chapel reads: William de St. Clair, Knight Templar. On his gravestone a mysterious key with an eight-pointed cross is depicted. The official coat of arms of the Sinclair’s is a four-pointed cross in a stitch pattern, and it’s well known that the Knights Templar used both four- and eight-pointed crosses in their coat of arms. So the question is: what does this key on William Sinclairs grave represent? Could this key possibly unlock some of the mysteries…

The Beasts of Atlantis

A close reading of Plato’s dialogues concerning Atlantis reveals that he specified several animals connected in special ways to the oceanic empire. By examining them individually, they shed previously unconsidered light on its imperial capital. Although he described the Temple of Poseidon in some detail, he told of only one ritual activity that took place there with ceremonial regularity. In the “Kritias” [4.(f),], we learn how the ten Atlantean rulers, representing various regions within their imperial network, convened together in the Temple of Poseidon alternately…

Global Cooling

“….the earth and the heavens … all shall wax old as doth a garment.” Hebrews 1:10-11 With great expectations hinging on NASA’s latest exploration of Mars—the Phoenix lander touching down smoothly on the Red Planet’s northern ice plains in May—scientists are holding their breath for signs of ancient water and life on that barren world. Could success for the $457 million-dollar mission—the first to study Mars’ arctic plains— depend on finding, under polar ice, organic chemicals or perhaps “nanofossils”? Back in ’04 when Mars was…

“Don’t curse the darkness—light a candle.” Chinese Proverb Our concept of the solar system is in a state of flux, and it’s a challenge for astrologers to keep pace with the discover­ies and their significance. We lost Pluto as a planet, and Dwarf Planet Eris, who upset the apple cart, has an even larg­er mass, adding insult to injury. In 2001 an asteroid was identified which may be larger than Ceres, the first discov­ered. Ceres itself is now believed to be a “mini-planet,” boasting pure…

Lost Ancient Technology

Since its inception, this magazine has devoted considerable space to the topic of lost ancient technology.

Now two of the re­searchers who played key roles in much of our coverage have teamed up to produce a DVD of their own.
