Ancient Nukes on Mars

In May of this year, Mars One—the European non-profit organization that aims to send a team of four on a one-way trip to Mars, in 2024—announced the selection of 705 candidates chosen for the daring mission from a pool of 200,000 applicants. The chance to be one of first humans to set foot on the Red Planet, is apparently irresistible to many, even when there will be no chance of return to the home planet. If the Mars One project succeeds, its intrepid voyagers will…

More Evidence Uncovered in Howard-Vyse Pyramid Fraud

The long-simmering debate surrounding quarry marks found in the Great Pyramid in 1837 by British explorer Colonel Howard-Vyse and his team, was returned to a full boil in June, 2014, when we reported (in Atlantis Rising #106) damning new evidence taken directly from Vyse’s handwritten journal. The Colonel’s own notes establish a powerful case that—in a bid to connect the Great Pyramid to Khufu, a fourth dynasty Pharaoh of ancient Egypt—fraud had been perpetrated. The famous Khufu cartouche, on which mainstream Egyptology relies to date…

Upton Sinclair & Mental Radio

One day, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Upton Sinclair (1878–1968), who wrote an exposé of the meat packing industry (The Jungle) so devastating that it forced passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act, discovered that his wife Mary had the ability to intuitively locate research notes he thought he had irretrievably lost. Sinclair tells us in his book on telepathy, Mental Radio (1930), that he was in the habit of jotting down notes on scraps of paper, sticking them in convenient places, and then being…

Countering Militant Materialism

For fifty years now, the so-called ‘skeptical’ community, spear-headed by stage magician James Randi, has told us that if any claims of the paranormal (i.e. telepathy, psychokinesis, miracles, etc.) can be proved, the prover can win a million dollars. So far no one has been able to claim the prize, and some have inferred, therefore, that such things must be impossible, else, surely, someone would have won. Few, however, have read the fine print in the ‘Amazing’ Randi offer, which makes collecting the money somewhat…

Aliens—or Maybe Not

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.”)   Alternative Possibilities Many people today attribute the knowledge, technology, and construction abilities necessary to design and erect the numerous megalithic structures around the world to highly advanced “ancient aliens.” As I see it, the primary reason for espousing the whole ancient alien story…

The Strange Power of Ancient Acoustics Many esoteric and spiritual teachers have long claimed that our ancient ancestors possessed a science of sound, now lost, which made it possible to do many things that baffle us today. Some researchers, like the late John Michell, have argued that the ancients were able to use their mastery of chanting and acoustics to levitate heavy objects to build many gigantic structures which still stand, and which our modern technology would be hard-pressed to duplicate. While no one has…

Astronomers Find Evidence for Planet X—More Than One According to the late Zecharia Sitchin there is an undiscovered planet which makes periodic passes through the solar system and has contributed mightily to the history of Earth. He called it ‘Niburu.’ Sitchin was, by no means, the first to speculate about an unknown “Planet X.” The Lowell observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona, was originally established in the hope of explaining anomalies in the orbit of Uranus which Lowell believed must be caused by an unknown trans-Neptunian planet….

Study: Most Americans Believe in Conspiracies More than half of Americans believe in some kind of conspiracy. That is the conclusion of University of Chicago researchers Eric Oliver and Thomas Woods who have investigated the matter. Their research was disclosed by science reporter Shankar Vedantin recently on NPR. ‘Conspiricism,’ as they term it, includes such notions as: that NASA faked the Apollo Moon landing; the Kennedy Assassination was the work of someone other than Lee Harvey Oswald; or bankers rule the world. Believing such things,…

Sphinx Head Was Probably Re-Carved The head of the great Sphinx of Egypt was probably, at one time, even greater but was likely not a sphinx. That is the view of British geologist Colin Reader, who argues that since, for most of its history, the Sphinx has been buried up to its shoulders in sand, and since, during this time, only the head was exposed to the elements, it should, therefore, be more degraded than the protected body; and yet it is the body which is…

Can Compassionate Transmutation Transform a Paradigm?

The good news is that the accepted “laws of physics” do change over time. Thomas Kuhn’s book, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions shows that throughout history they change after anomalies—discoveries that don’t fit into the official theories of that time—have piled up too high to hide any more. The evidence for a mysterious source of excess energy that shows up in certain types of experiments has piled fairly high right now. Other findings by maverick scientists point to the need for new theories about basics,…

The Mystery of Ancient Lenses and Glass

Ancient high technology is an interesting topic in forbidden archaeology. In this column, I will consider three examples having to do with lenses and glass: (1) the Nimrud lens from Assyria, (2) the advanced lenses in the eyes of Egyptian statues, and (3) and the huge slab of glass found in Galilee.   The Nimrud Lens Sir Austen Henry Layard (1817-1894) was a British explorer, archaeologist, politician, and diplomat. In the 1840s, he excavated the ruins of the ancient Assyrian cities of Nimrud and Nineveh,…

The Pan Perspective

While writing a book on human genesis and hybrid man (The Mysterious Origins of Hybrid Man), I was determined to leave out the story of ‘Pan,’ the lost continent in the Pacific Ocean, which some call Mu or Lemuria. I thought it was too complex, too controversial—too separate an issue to drag into my already copious (basically anti-Darwinian) arguments. But the chapters were full of references to prediluvial man and the small-statured race, homo sapiens pygmaeus, that, as I believe, escaped the sinking of Pan….

The Mysterious Meaning of Myths

There is but a fine line between what constitutes a myth and what constitutes a legend. Generally, myths are attempts to explain something (like day and night, for example, or the seasons), generally by invoking supernatural causes. Legends are typically accounts of the deeds of heroes and gods in the remote past and are often  based on some kernel of truth. For example, the Atlantis legend seems to be based on prehistoric civilizations on the (now submerged) continental shelves, which were dry land during the…

Graduating from Kindergarten

During a recent debate about the nature of consciousness on National Public Radio’s popular forum, ‘Intelligence Squared,’ Harvard neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander asked Yale School of Medicine Academic Neurologist, Dr. Steven Novella to state the first sentence that might explain how the physical brain creates consciousness (‘the Hard Problem of Consciousness’). “You can’t,” said Alexander triumphantly; “no one can.” (Though the live audience voted Novella and physicist Sean Carroll of the California Institute of Technology winners of the debate, subsequent polling of a larger group…

Tankering & the Petroglyphs

I did not know what to expect. I had been invited to speak at a seminar in Norway. However, the seminar was not to be held in one of the major cities, such as Oslo or Bergen, but rather in Sandane, a village in Western Norway of fewer than 2500 residents located on the southeastern end of the twelve-kilometer (seven-and-a-half mile) fjord known as Gloppenfjorden (also Gloppefjorden). Organized by David McCall and his wife Aase Skrivervik, “The Ancient Wisdom Weekend that Rewrites Ancient History” (20–22…

Scotland’s Curious Carved Stone Balls

This article is dedicated to my father, for reasons that will become obvious, and to Robert Brydon, FSA Scot, who passed along his own torch of inquiry on May 21, 2014. Only about 400 of Scotland’s 4,000-year-old carved stone balls have been found. They are of fairly uniform size, with the diameters of most measuring around 2.75 inches. Fitting nicely within the cupped hand, they are made from a variety of stone—from soft sandstone to the hardest granite. The numbers of projections or knobs range…

Moons Over Mars

Mars has two moons that were discovered in 1877, by a man named Asaph Hall, the director of the Naval Observatory in Washington, DC. Or were they? There is evidence that the moons of the planet named for the God of War were known long before. There is also evidence that knowledge of these moons was secretly passed along in literature. Most remarkably, there is evidence that suggests that at least one of these moons has served as a base for visitors from outer space….

Quantum Teleportation

Teleportation is an idea that captures our imagination with its fantastic possibilities. The concept of moving an object from one place to another without having to travel between them has been a common thread in science fiction as a way to bridge the depths of interstellar space, time, and other dimensions. Today, major scientific institutions are running trials on the teleportation of matter and energy. The almost unbelievable potentials of this research are exciting the minds of even practical physicists. The term teleportation was coined…

Meeting Monarchs

“There are two great enemies of progress, the aristocracy of royalty and the aristocracy of gold.” — Mary Elizabeth Lease   After the Moon and Venus, Jupiter is the third brightest object in the night sky, and eleven Earths could fit side-by-side across the largest planet in our Solar System. Known since prehistoric times as a bright “wandering star,” Jupiter is twice as massive as the rest of the planets combined. Jupiter’s composition is more like a star than a planet, with an internal energy…
