The Red Crag Carved Shell: Found and Lost

By Michael Cremo

In February 11, 2010, I flew into Dubai to attend the second International Conference for Ancient Studies, where I gave a lecture titled “Forbidden Archaeology: Archaeological Evidence for the Extreme Antiquity of Humans and Hu­man Civilization.” Some of the other speakers at the conference were Robert Bauval (The Orion Mystery), Graham Hancock (Fingerprints of the Gods), Robert Schoch (Voyages of the Pyramid Builders), John Major Jenkins (Unlock­ing the Secrets of 2012), and Andrew Collins (Beneath the Pyramids), among others. It was great meeting up with…

Big Science on Trial

by Martin Ruggles

Late in November of 2009 a hacker broke through the computer security system of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, and copied over 3000 pages of e-mail and computer code which were shortly disseminated across the Internet. Revealed in the documents was what climate warming skeptics soon trumpeted as a shocking picture of scientific fraud and deceit of enormous significance. The ensuing internet/science tsunami was, and continues to be, of near biblical proportions. And while global warming…

Rama’s Bridge

By Dr. Rita Louise

Historians, archaeologists and researchers into our distant past insist that civilized life began on the Earth about five thousand years ago. They point to an absence of hard evidence supporting the existence of a preexisting culture prior to the rise of the Sumerians and the Egyptians, and despite recently discovered ruins of advanced construction at Turkey’s Gobeckli Tepe dating to over twelve thousand years ago. When alternative historians such as John Anthony West, Robert Schoch, and Graham Hancock propose that structures on the Giza plateau…

The Sphinx

By Joseph R. Jochmans, Lit.D.

Author/Researcher Robert Temple recently published The Sphinx Mystery (Inner Traditions, 2009). A virtual gold mine of information, the five-hundred-page-plus book is augmented by rare photographs and illustrations. Highly recommended for anyone even slightly curious over the greatest of all Egyptian mysteries, the book will prove an im­portant reference for years to come. Temple, however, draws a number of conclusions that need closer examination. One of the most controversial is that the Sphinx was never a recumbent lion but, instead, a guardian jackal or dog, called…

Politics and Psychic Manipulation in Romania

BY ROBERT M. SCHOCH, Ph.D.

Romania is a land of unparalleled natural beauty and deep religious sentiments, combined with continuing mystery and intrigue. Vampires, Dracula (perhaps based on the real life fifteenth century ruler Vlad Tepes of Transylvania), witchcraft, black magic, and all things paranormal come to the mind at the mere mention of Romania—and with good reason, for the country has a long and continuing tradition of occult manifestations. Recently (August 2010) I traveled to Romania and explored its mysteries firsthand. There are too many things of interest to…

Nabta Playa’s Prehistoric Astronomers

BY THOMAS BROPHY

In 1973 an international team of anthropologists called the Combined Prehistoric Expedition (CPE) headed by Fred Wen­dorf and Romuald Schild were 100 km west of Abu Simbel, on a break in the blazing heat, when someone noticed pot­sherds and fine stone tools. They had discovered what came to be known as Nabta Playa. The CPE began excavating there every winter and uncovered, cataloged, and radio carbon dated numerous layers of artifacts dating from circa 7,000 BCE to 3,300 BCE. They found tombs of cattle that…

The Still Unexplained

BY MARSHA OAKS

If the many unexplained anomalies which fascinate most of us, the three categories featured in this group of reviews usually gets top billing. We are talking about Atlantis, Crop Circles and UFOs. In the case of all three, despite the fact that the mainstream sci­entific establishment refuses to take them seriously, powerful evidence which cannot be explained away persists and, in fact, as se­rious researchers are learning, new evidence continues to emerge on all three fronts. ADVANCED ICE AGE CIVILIZATIONS AND ATLANTIS Produced by Dr….
