Searching for the Dawn & Demise of Ancient Civilisation

01Schoch_SphinxPhoto_SchochOnRight

By ROBERT M. SCHOCH, PH.D. — When and where did civilisation begin? How far back in time does high culture go? Indeed, what do we mean by such terms as civilisation, or sophisticated and high culture? When I was in college, more years ago than I perhaps care to remember, I learned the standard story which still holds sway in many circles: Civilisation and high culture date back to, at most, perhaps five or six thousand years ago. A handy marker for recognising a true civilisation was … [Read more...]

Ancient Egyptians in Australia! Could Mysterious Engravings Rewrite our History?

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

By STEVE STRONG— Until receiving a phone call from Nina Angelo (OAM), I knew nothing of neither the struggles involved in protecting the land around Kariong (near Gosford) nor that part of this land was now on the market. When on-site I had seen a lot of tagged trees, and a for sale sign somewhere along a main road, but being unfamiliar with the whole region, nothing registered. The land for sale contains the Gosford Glyphs, located near Kariong, about 60 km north of Sydney. This site … [Read more...]

A New Theory for the Great Pyramid: How Science is Changing Our View of the Past

Giza_Plateau

By EDWARD F. MALKOWSKI Of all the chambers in the Great Pyramid, the subterranean chamber is the largest, as well as the most mysterious. It is 46 feet long, 27 feet wide, hewn into the limestone bedrock, and difficult to describe. The descending passageway’s entrance to the subterranean chamber is near the floor at the northeast corner. A six-foot-wide square pit shaped like a funnel has been tunnelled in the middle of the floor, near the east wall. This square-shaped pit is actually the … [Read more...]

What Lives On? Investigating Life After Death

afterlife1

By ROBERT M. SCHOCH, Ph.D. — Do we survive the death of our physical bodies? Is there such a thing as a postmortem continuation of the individual? If there is survival, what survives? Does everyone survive? What does it even mean to survive? Answers to these questions are central to the dogmas of many religions. These same issues are amongst the most refractory when addressed using the techniques of scientific inquiry: data gathering, hypothesis formulation and testing, logical analyses. … [Read more...]

What was the Sphinx?

Anubis001

By ROBERT TEMPLE — There has never been a satisfactory answer to what the Sphinx actually is or was. Anyone who goes to Giza can see for himself or herself that there is something ‘wrong’ with the Sphinx. It only takes an instant. The body is gigantic and the head is just a pimple. The Egyptians never did anything like that, they were always meticulous about proportions in their art. So how is it that we have this monster with a tiny head sitting there in the sand, then? There are several … [Read more...]

Ancient Civilisations: Six Great Enigmas

viragat

By WILL HART & ROBERT BERRINGER — We stand today at an unprecedented turning point in human history. In recent years two versions of ancient history have formed. One, we shall call ‘alternative’ history, the other we shall refer to as ‘official’ history. The former ponders over a variety of anomalies and tries to make sense out of the corpus of evidence, i.e., the pyramids and timelines, why they were built, by whom and when. The latter conducts digs, catalogues pottery shards, and tries … [Read more...]

The Dawn of the Genesis Race: Our Extraterrestrial DNA and the True Origins of the Species

human-dna

BY WILL HART — The mysteries of ancient history, such as how the Great Pyramid was built and by whom and why, have been well established over the past four decades. Similar archaeological enigmas litter the landscape around the planet and they raise many difficult questions about the origin of human civilisation. Erik Von Daniken’s series of books, which began with Chariots of the Gods,presented archeological evidence while recounting many mythological traditions that have “gods” arriving … [Read more...]

How the Great Pyramid Was Built

greatpyramid11

BY STEVEN MYERS — No one in the world really knows how the Great Pyramid of Giza was built – that is, of course, except for myself! Such is how I start a lecture or speech on this controversial subject. As an attention grabber, it works well, but it is nothing compared to the subject matter at hand. There are about as many proposed methods of construction as there are people who propose theories on the subject, with the informed reader aware of most. The following brief and condensed … [Read more...]
