Project Stardust: Accessing the Cosmic Hall of Records

BY WILLIAM HENRY

Where did we come from? Is there life in the interstellar void? Are there beings that travel the “crystal halls” of God’s mansion beyond our solar system? Was life brought here in drops of water by comets as ancient myths indicate? Are we really made of alien stars? What forces prompted the universe to form the primordial cosmic particles floating in the sacred ocean into Paris Hilton? These are not questions in a debate between evolution and Intelligent Design. These are the complicated ques­tions asked…

The Enigma of the Polar Dinosaurs New evidence that large dinosaurs once roamed near the south pole is presenting some challenges to official paleon­tology. How could animals once associated with temperate-to-tropical climes find their way into regions thought to be so very cold? The answer, at least according to scientists at the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, meeting recent­ly in Texas, was they were fat, very fat. According to Thomas Rich, curator of vertebrate paleontology at Australia’s Museum of Victoria in an interview with London’s Daily…

ZECHARIA SITCHIN PASSES Zecharia Sitchin, longtime advocate for the idea that human advancement on Earth is a product of ancient extrater­restrial intervention, died on October 9, 2010. He was 92. Author of the Earth Chronicles series, Sitchin first gained international fame in 1976 with publication of the best­selling book 12th Planet which made the case that ancient cuneiform texts, which he could translate, told the story of interactions between alien overlords and human slaves who served as virtual guinea pigs for genetic experimenta­tion. He would…

RUSSIANS WARN OF ASTEROID HIT IN 2036 Anyone making plans for the year 2036 might want to put them on hold. That, at least, is the opinion of Russian space experts. In that year, they predict, the 900-foot-long asteroid Apophis will crash into Earth with enough force to destroy half a continent, killing a very large part of life on this planet—a virtual doomsday event. Reassuringly, ex­perts at NASA disagree. Apophis was first discovered in 2004. At first the worry was that it would smash…

The Many Dimensions of Breakthrough Thinking

The Global Breakthrough Energy Movement conference in Hilversum, Holland, in November was a breakthrough in itself. The three-day event broadened and deepened communication between advocates of new, clean-energy inventions, on the one hand, and thought-leaders who are passionate about other ways to improve our world. This month’s column will listen in on some of that conversation, which often detoured to extraordinary ideas. Musician, author, and explorer Michael Tellinger of South Africa has seen evidence that indicates the ancients had advanced knowledge of the laws of…

Sumerians in Tiahuanaco?

BY DAVID H. CHILDRESS

Whether or not the so-called new world was visited by travelers from the old world before Columbus, has been a heated controversy for over a century. From Thor Heyerdahl to Barry Fell, from Percy Fawcett to Zecharia Sitchin, many alternative scholars have argued that explorers from Europe, Asia, Africa, and elsewhere were here long before the time maintained by conventional academia. There has certainly been no shortage of tantalizing evidence, especially in the form of mysterious inscriptions discovered in many unexpected quarters. The late Harvard…

From Ferocious to Fido?

By Stephen E. Robbins

Here we are again. We are in NatGeoland in 32,000 BC. We are about to be offered a profound scientific treatment of the origin of the domestic dog in the NatGeo special, And Man Created Dog. Wolves, we are told, had taken to hanging around human camps, picking up food scraps. This is a characteristic—peculiar it seems—to Lupus NatGeocus. An unseen predator approaches the camp and the wolves go on the defense. One is fatally injured, leaving a cub behind, to be adopted by a…

Was I.D. an E.T.?

BY ZECHARIA SITCHIN

In March 1925 the Tennessee legislature outlawed the teaching of any doctrine denying the divine creation of man as taught by the Bible. In July of that same year, John T. Scopes, a high school teacher, was brought to trial for teaching evolution in violation of the state law. The ensuing Scopes Trial (or, derisively, the “Monkey Trial”) drew worldwide attention to the seemingly irreconcilable conflict between creationism (the old fashioned belief in the biblical ac­count) and evolution (based on Darwin’s findings of natural selection)….

The Lost World of Egypt’s Abu Ghurob

BY WILLIAM HENRY

About a 20-minute drive from the Great Pyramid, and visible from the Giza Plateau on a clear day, is one of Egypt’s greatest treasures from antiquity, and one of the most extraordinary places on our planet. Abu Ghurob is a closed-to-the-public archaeological site in the pyramid fields that run alongside the Nile south of Cairo. Egyptologists quaintly refer to it as a ‘sun temple’, a ‘burial center’ or ‘funerary complex’ for a new cult of Ra (they usually use these terms when the actual function…

Late Arrival?

By Mark Andrew

Many authors and researchers have proposed that our Moon arrived in the skies above Earth much more recently than the conventional estimate (that it formed 4.5 billion years ago or thereabouts). Some have suggested that the wandering Moon was captured intact by Earth around 12,000 years ago, while one author has suggested as early as 1200 BC. So when did our lunar companion arrive on the scene? Firstly, it is important to establish that, while mainstream science has its own theories about the formation of…
