Advancing Our Case on the Web

When we launched this publication late in 1994, we daydreamed about becoming a kind of alternative National Geographic, but, in fact, we had no clue to what to expect. Now, though, about 18 years later, we can say that while we may still have a way to go to catch NatGeo, a not inconsiderable number of achievements have been chalked up. Atlantis Rising has now become the number-one-selling magazine in the U.S. featuring ancient mysteries, unexplained anomalies, and future science. Our books have been bestsellers…

The Atlantis Connection?

There’s an amazing place on the northwest coast of Canada that pulls us back to its fog-swept beauty as inevitably as iron to a magnet. This rugged area of 150 scattered islands cradles some of the oldest living forests in the New World. Europeans absurdly christened this mystical place the Queen Charlotte Islands after a long dead, bewigged, British aristocrat. Far more suitable was its original, and recently restored name, Haida Gwaii, ‘Islands of the Surface People,’ bestowed by the Haida who have lived there…

The Ancient Subterranean Shelters of Cappadocia

Imagine this: Aerial bombardments raining down havoc on humans and beasts alike, setting wildfires and incinerating everything that is flammable. The intense heat is great enough in some cases to literally melt surface rocks, which, once they cool, form a crude vesicular glass in a process known as vitrification. Elevated radiation levels are so high that a few days’ exposure is lethal. The only realistic safe haven, the only place to flee, is deep underground in an intricate maze of subterranean passageways and rooms. Perhaps…

Jesse James: Secret Agent

We all know the legends of Jesse James and the infamous James gang that spread terror throughout the Midwest, successfully robbing one bank after another for years. Sometimes they are seen as Robin Hood types, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. At other times, they are seen simply as robbers, making up for the economic depression that followed the Civil War. The truth is much stranger. Jesse James did start his career during the Civil War. He followed in the path of…

Trouble from the Sun

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 http://www.Atlantis Rising.com and select “Discussions”.)   Solar Catastrophe Robert Schoch’s article on super-massive solar events is up to his usual high standards (“Solar Catastrophe,” A.R. #94). It is fascinating to see what a trained scientist can accomplish when he is also open-minded enough to question accepted wisdom. I…

Neanderthal Art—37,300 Years Old The GEICO caveman of TV fame has a point. To say that something is so simple a caveman could do it, does not give them the respect they deserve. Assuming they were Neanderthals, cavemen were certainly capable of a great deal more than that for which they have been given credit. Neanderthals, in fact, may have created the great, lost mother culture for which we have long buy cialis online sought. Dr. Robert Schoch is among those who believe Neanderthals may…

Baltic Sea ‘UFO’ Mystery is Deepening CAPTION: Object on seabed of Baltic (sonar image) When, early this year, Swedish underwater treasure hunter Peter Lindberg unveiled sonar pictures of a strange object his team—dubbed Ocean X—had discovered at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, it caused a sensation. Few observers could escape noticing the object’s uncanny resemblance to Hans Solo’s Millennium Falcon spacecraft from the Star Wars movies. In the meantime mainstream science predictably dismissed the find as some kind of meaningless sonar artifact. They may…

Could Yeti Be Roaming Siberia? Yeti and bigfoot experts from around the world say they are 95% certain that the ‘abominable snowman’ exists in Siberia. In June, researchers from as far away as Canada, Estonia, Sweden, and the U.S. gathered in Tashtagol in the Kemerovo region of Siberia to compare notes and do some tracking on their own. After a two-day expedition to Azassky cave and Karatag peak, the group claimed to have gathered irrefutable evidence including hair found in a footprint. They also found…

Tiny Tornadoes of Magnetism—Keys to Free Energy?

The following story seemed straightforward—an expert in high voltage electronics builds a version of the Floyd Sweet Device. Another mainstream scientist encounters this revolutionary energy invention and considers a heretical possibility—electrical power extracted from an “energetic vacuum.” I thought I could write this one quickly before summer traveling, because in the 1990s, I’d interviewed magnetics wiz Floyd Sweet (1912–1995) and a few of his associates. The late Walt Rosenthal, a test engineer in the aerospace industry, saw Sweet’s invention putting out useful electrical energy with…

The Tooth Is Out There: Human, but 400,000 Years Old

In the fall of 2010, scientists in Israel announced a discovery that could push the history of the anatomically modern human species back to about 400,000 years. The general view among mainstream scientists is that humans like us first appeared less than 200,000 years ago. As regular readers of this column know, I believe humans like us have existed for many millions of years, going back to the very beginnings of life on Earth. Therefore I see the discovery in Israel as a tiny step…

Hominid Hokum

Any reasonably intelligent and open-minded person looking at the similarities between the various species of plants and animals alive on Earth today will logically conclude that they are related, and can be classified into families and groups. Looking at the fossil record, seeing how species arise and eventually become extinct to be replaced by new species similar to the old, a logical person will realize that some kind of evolution is taking place. It is only on a much closer inspection that little problems like…

Soul Stuff

In 1901, Duncan MacDougall, a respected 34-year-old, Haverhill, Massachusetts  physician and surgeon, reported that there is reason to believe that the soul of man has weight. Experimenting with six tuberculosis patients, weighing them just before death and again just after death, he found an average loss of 21 grams. “The net result of the experiments conducted on human beings is that a loss of substance occurs at death not accounted for by known channels of loss,” MacDougall wrote in the Journal of the American Society…

Plato and Near-Death Experience

We usually consider studies in near-death experiences to be a relatively modern phenomenon, coming into vogue only after doctors began to take notice of how patients reported anomalous experiences following a return to life after being declared clinically dead. But people have been at the brink of death, and returned to tell about it, for as long as we have existed as a species. The Greek philosopher Plato is, at least in alternative circles, probably best known for his description of Atlantis. But, less well…

Rudolph Steiner and the Art of Visible Speech

On May 27th of this year, an unsuspecting alien eavesdropping on Earth from space might have picked up the word “hallelujah” being shouted from all around the globe in a strange language even an Earth-savvy alien could hardly be expected to understand. The occasion of this linguistically-incorrect, worldwide outburst of joy was the 100th anniversary of the day Rudolph Steiner, founder of the Anthroposophical Society and creator of an art form called eurythmy, gave Lori Smits, his first student in eurythmy, the first word-form: “hallelujah.”…

Norsemen in Minnesota

Atlantis Rising readers are familiar with the Kensington Rune Stone, as cited in last year’s November/December issue (Number 54). The 202–pound granite slab covered with a Norse inscription was excavated 120 miles northwest of Minneapolis, 114 years ago by an immigrant farmer clearing his field. The text reads, “We eight Goetlanders (medieval Swedes) and twenty-two Northmen are on this acquisition expedition far west from Vinland (Maine, according to the authenticated fifteenth-century Vinland Map; see Atlantis Rising, number 78). We had properties near two shelters one…

The Great Pyramid’s Missing Capstone

One of the mysteries of Giza is the missing pyramidion or capstone of the Great Pyramid of Khufu. In modern recorded history the Great Pyramid has been topless, with several meters of its apex missing. Egyptologists have long assumed that a small pyramid called a pyramidion originally capped the pyramid. If that is true, then what happened to it, and what could it have looked like? In October 1900, the guards of the Egyptian Antiquities Organization (EAO) in the area of Dashur, a site on…

The Lucid Dream Experience

You’re sitting on the patio of a coffee shop drinking tea and talking with a friend. You see cars driving by. You can hear the chatter of other people’s conversations and enjoy the fragrant taste of your tea. A police car drives by with flashing red lights and sirens wailing. You think to yourself, “What an annoying sound.” Your friend says, almost simultaneously, “That was annoying.” Your friend’s words sound like they came from your own mind. You pause for a moment, and have a…
