Alien Giants & Alien DNA …Or Not?

One of the most enigmatic (and theologically challenging) tales in the Bible is related in the first verses in Chapter 6 of Genesis—the tale of the Nefilim, sons of the gods who (in the days before the Deluge “and thereafter too”) took “daughters of man” as wives and had heroic children by them. Some eighty years ago a schoolboy, fortunate to study the Bible in its original Hebrew, was reprimanded for ask­ing why, though Nefilim meant ‘Those Who Had Descended’ (from heaven, to Earth), translators…

The Other Shroud

One of the most controversial relics ever, the Turin Shroud, is said to be the burial cloth of Jesus. For some, it is the ultimate relic, proving the reality of his resurrection. For academics, it remains an enigma, since the image embed­ded on the cloth has never been fully reproduced. For others, it is nothing more than a medieval fake, for which a 1988 carbon-dating result provides the only evidence. And yet, recent research has indicated that the swatches taken for dating the shroud came…

The Secret of Cygnus X-3

Recently the prestigious journals Nature and Science announced that Cygnus X-3, either a black hole or neutron star located 30,000 light years away in the constellation of Cygnus, the celestial swan, has now been shown to produce pe­riodic bursts of high energy gamma rays, the first confirmed source in the Milky Way galaxy (Tavani et al, Nature, 2009 & Fermi LAT Collaboration et al, Science, 2009. See also Reddy, 2009). This is a revelation, for extreme cosmic radiation of this type is normally only associated…

Can Friendly Bacteria Help Clean Up the Gulf Oil Spill? As the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico grew worse over the early summer, it was difficult to imagine how the vast pool of brown sticky goo could ever be disposed of. As in the human digestive system, at least some of the answer may yet come from bacteria, what might be called friendly bacteria. Researchers at Oregon State University say they have discovered a new strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa—a common bacteria that researchers…

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION’S UGLY TYRANNY UNABATED Religious persecution, over alleged heresy, remains one of the great threats to world peace—to say nothing of free­dom and enlightenment—yet the international press often seems more interested in political correctness than in the systematic murder of small groups whose unpopular views have made them targets. Just as the Nazis murdered jews while much of the world looked the other way, the same bloody practices still flourish today in many parts of the world. In January of 2008, Atlantis Rising reported…

Newton, the Alchemist, Resurrected Isaac Newton, as alchemist, may be a little better understood now. For a long time that side of the great scientist’s life was largely ignored by a modern academic establishment loathe to concede much of value in the esoteric wisdom of the ancients. Now, though, thanks to the efforts of William Newman, history professor at Indiana University Bloom­ington, that situation could be changing. In fact, the National Science Foundation has supported a Newman-led study into The Chymistry of Isaac Newton. As…

Romanian Cave Paintings Said to Be Oldest Ever Found Thirty-five thousand years ago, painters in the Coliboaia cave in Romania were producing sophisticated portraits of various animals including a horse, bear heads, and a rhinoceros. The artists used black paint. The artwork is even old­er than the masterpieces previously found in other European caves like those at Lascaux and Chauvet. The discovery was announced in June and created a considerable stir in archaeological circles around the world. Jean Clottes, a well-known specialist in such art,…

Cayce Readings “Crystal-ized” Energy Invention

This month’s column is a celebration of the life of Dr. Wingate Lambertson, who died last month, mere weeks before his 90th birthday. His wife Eileen passed on earlier this year. They had chosen Florida for most of their retirement years, so his final month was also shadowed by news of oil drifting toward familiar beaches. Before I get to his story, I want to mention the latest DVD in the “Energy from the Vacuum” series—the story of a cold-heat, zero-fuel engine system. There’s an…

Modern Humans Over Three Million Years Ago

For a long time, I have been saying that the Laetoli footprints provide evidence that humans like us existed over three million years ago. New scientific research on the prints supports this conclusion of mine. Let us first look at the his­tory of the Laetoli discoveries. Then I will summarize the latest research and analyze what it means. In 1979, a team led by Mary Leakey was doing archaeological research at Laetoli, in the East African nation of Tan­zania, about 30 miles north of Olduvai…

Ice Age Civilization in the Bahamas?

In Atlantis Rising, Issue #77, archaeologists Drs. Greg and Lora Little reported on their recent discoveries in the Bahamas near Bimini which provide powerful evidence for the existence of ancient civilization in the area when it was above water as long as 10,000 years ago, a time when some believe Atlantis existed. The Little discoveries were subsequently documented on the History Channel. Weather has been a problem in much of the exploration, but in spring of this year, they returned to the area to further…

Music from the Other Side

On Wednesday, May 5, 2010, in a Live From Lincoln Center/PBS-TV concert commemorating the 200th anniversary of the birth of composers Felix Mendelssohn and Robert Schumann, the renowned music-making trio of Emanuel Ax (piano), Yo-Yo Ma (cello), and Itzhak Perlman (violin), gave the audience more than it bargained for when they dis­cussed the life of Schumann, one of the world’s great composers and music critics. They revealed that the German composer believed he had two spirit guides, one he called “Fiery,” and the other he…

Nikola Tesla & the God Particle

It was in 1976 while I was in the midst of following another story at the New York Public Library when I found Tesla’s name for the first time. It was alleged, in a book on avatars, that Tesla had been born on another planet. He had land­ed in the mountains of Yugoslavia in 1856 to give us humans the induction motor, fluorescent and neon lights, wire­less communication, remote control, robotics, and our entire electrical power system. What immediately struck me was that had this…

Lost Secrets Of The Bruton Vault

Visitors to Virginia’s Colonial Williamsburg Park come to see what America was in the seventeenth century when set­tlers from England came to create a New World. They walk on quaint streets filled with brick houses and blacksmith shops, get canned speeches from costumed characters like a historical Disneyland, and visit souvenir vendors for a piece of history to take home. Few know that they may be walking over, literally, a secret vault containing the writ­ings of Sir Francis Bacon and others. If they did, they…

Water Wizards of Ancient Arizona

Every high culture—from the Indus Valley to the United States—has been distinguished by the will and genius of its creators to achieve the proper distribution of fresh water. Such organization is impossible without social cooperation, which is itself the kernel of civilization. Both mutually arise from each other. Hence, water management is not only fundamental to the early construction and existence of a high culture, but generates the common spirit that typifies and motivates it. Thus deeply involved in applying this primary resource, a people’s…

Hidden in Plain Sight

Would we recognize the ruins of a forgotten indigenous human civilization or the evidence of an advanced technolo­gy here on Earth if we found it? Can we even define “civilization”? Suppose a technology was not like ours, on the same line of development and perhaps less advanced than ours or more advanced, but on a completely different path? Suppose machines were made of stone rather than metal and designed to harness the chi, or kundalini force (it has many names) the very existence of which…

The Phases of the Moon

“The Earth together with its surrounding waters must in fact have such a shape as its shadow reveals, for it eclipses the Moon with the arc of a perfect circle.”—Nicolaus Copernicus The Moon is about one quarter the size of Earth and is believed to be four billion years old. Our Moon is the fifth larg­est satellite in the solar system and causes our planetary tides, due to the gravitational interaction between the Moon and Earth. The Moon revolves around Earth in an elliptical orbit,…
