The Politics of Time

By John Chambers

In the early 1970s, a group of Soviet mathematicians at Moscow State University led by Professor A.T. Fomenko came forth with an astonishing proposition: All the dates in history are wrong; the recorded history of mankind really started no earlier than AD 900 and the majority of all historical events took place after AD 1300. The Moscow mathematicians were building on the work of Russian mathematician/topologist Nicolai Aleksandrovich Morozov (1854–1946), who in 1924 challenged all traditional dates in his book, Christ: A History of Human…

National Secrets

By Steven Sora

The reviews are in for National Treasure, Hollywood’s take on the esoteric origins of America, starring Nicholas Cage. The critics hated it, but the good news is, the public loved it. The story centers on Ben Gates (Cage), a descendant of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The signers, it seems, may have left more than a blueprint for Democracy on the Declaration. America’s founders, led by freemasons, had, the movie suggests, hidden an actual treasure, indeed, the legendary treasure of the…

Doggerland Rising

By Frank Joseph

The “iNews” section of Atlantis Rising, Issue #95, carried the headline, “Britain’s Atlantis Found?” It referred to recent, underwater discoveries of Ice Age harpoons, fish prongs, possible burial sites, and fossilized remains belonging to large mammals—many of them extinct—such as mammoths, giant reindeer, and cave lions. According to physicist Dr. Richard Bates from the Department of Earth Sciences at St. Andrews University, “We have found many artifacts and submerged features that are very difficult to explain by natural causes, such as mounds surrounded by ditches.”…

Tales of the Real Ulysses

By Steven Sora

Homer may be regarded as the greatest poet of the ancient world. The stories, however, are not his own. He took the imported tales of a great war that happened long before and far from Greece, took some of the gods and heroes that existed among peoples from Ireland, Iberia, and Scandinavia and added his own creativity. The result was The Iliad and The Odyssey. One of his greatest heroes was Ulysses. But Ulysses was known from far more ancient times. Part god, part hero,…

Roerich, FDR & the Meru Super-Antenna

By William Henry

It was March of 1933. The Great Depression was suffocating the American spirit. The country was bankrupt. The Dust Bowl was grinding her breadbasket to powder. Enter Franklin D. Roosevelt, a wounded king who, like King Arthur, rose from his throne and promised a new deal to transform this wasteland into a flourishing garden once more. Love him or hate him, FDR’s uncanny fulfillment of the wounded Grail king archetype is profound. As I document in my book The A~tomic Christ, in true Arthurian fashion…

The Pan Perspective

By Susan B. Martinez, Ph.D.

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….

East of Qumran

by David S. Lewis

In 1947, near the banks of the Dead Sea, Bedouin tribesmen found seven crumbling scrolls hidden in caves since the time of Christ. By the end of 1956, archaeologists had discovered 800 scrolls in the desolate Judean wilderness near the ruins of Khirbet Qumran. In biblical times, a mysterious religious sect lived in the place twenty miles east of Jerusalem, deemed by historians to be both a monastery and a fortress. While its exact nature is uncertain, the sect is said to have been Essene,…

The Trouble with Timelines

By Rita Louise, Ph.D.

In 1650 CE, a bishop named James Ussher tried to identify when the world was created. He used the dates given in the Bible of the pre-flood people (Adam, Enoch, Noah, etc.) to establish when Adam and Eve lived. Counting back so many years, plus six days, he discovered the date God had created the earth. He determined it was sometime in 4004 BCE. The vice-chancellor of the University of Cambridge, also looking to determine the date of creation, went one step further. He fine-tuned…

The Writing on the Wall?

By William B. Stoecker

We once were told that writing, in the form of Sumerian cuneiform and Egyptian hieroglyphics, began some five thousand years ago, having evolved from relatively crude picture writing (this part is probably true). This marked, we were taught, the beginning of recorded history, so the time prior to this is, by definition, prehistoric. We were told that all modern alphabets derived from the Phoenician. Later, some researchers theorized that a kind of alphabet developed in the city state of Ugarit, in what is now Syria,…

Atlantis on Ogygia? — Was Newton Right?

The island country of Malta, set in the glittering Mediterranean 60 miles south of Sicily, covers a total area of only 122 square miles—a little smaller than Martha’s Vineyard. It consists mainly of three inhabited islands, Malta, Comino and Gozo. Comino is a mere speck peeping above the ocean between Malta and Gozo, lying to the northwest of Malta and 15 minutes away by helicopter and 30 by ferry, is only eight miles long by four miles across and contains barely one-tenth of the total…
