Consider the Kali Yuga

By JOHN ANTHONY WEST— Academics abhor a mystery the way nature abhors a vacuum, yet in nature there are no vacu­ums, while in academia there are many mysteries. In no field of science or scholarship are there more (or more glaring) mysteries than in Egyptology. Yet, at the same time, there is no field in which mysteries are more systematically denied. Pick up a book, any book, written by a creden­tialed Egyptologist and you will find nothing but agreement – about everything but the most … [Read more...]

The Forbidden Legacy of a Fallen Race

By ANDREW COLLINS— Angels are something we associate with beautiful Pre-Raphaelite and renaissance paintings, carved statues accompanying gothic architecture and supernatural beings who intervene in our lives at times of trouble. For the last 2000 years this has been the stereotypical image fostered by the Christian Church. But what are angels? Where do they come from, and what have they meant to the development of organised religion? Many people see the Pentateuch, the first five books of … [Read more...]

The Mystery of Göbekli Tepe and Its Message to Us

By ROBERT M. SCHOCH, PH.D.— What were our ancestors like 10,000 or more years ago? The most common image is one of small nomadic bands endlessly in pursuit of the next meal. Men hunted game while women and children gathered fruits, seeds, roots, shoots, insects, and other edibles. The height of technology was a finely worked stone knife blade or spear point; nets, baskets, and cordage were also put to good use. Permanent structures were superfluous, for the group never stayed in one place … [Read more...]

Who Was Moses?

By Robert Temple— When people are spoken of constantly, we feel we know them. Christians and Jews have been talking about Moses for thousands of years, so they assume they know who he was. But is this an illusion? Is it possible that no one really knows who Moses was? That the evidence about him is contradictory and enigmatic? Is it even possible that he never existed except in fable? Even religious fundamentalists have an immediate problem with Moses, and the accounts of him in the biblical … [Read more...]

The Mystery of the Crystal Skulls

By Chris Morton & Ceri Louise Thomas— An old native American legend describes the existence of thirteen ancient crystal skulls, the size of human skulls, with moveable jaws that were said to speak or sing. The legend tells that these crystal skulls contain important information about some of the great mysteries of life and the universe. They contain knowledge about the past history of our species on this planet, and information about mankind’s true purpose and future destiny. The … [Read more...]

Atlantis in Antarctica? Tracking the Myths of a Lost Island Paradise

By Rand and Rose Flem-Ath— Our exciting adventure tracking the history of the Ancients began in 1976. It was then that we read Plato’s account of an Egyptian priest’s description of the lost continent of Atlantis. We were intrigued when we realised that the account reflected a picture of the world as seen from Antarctica in 9600 BCE. That fascination culminated in the January 1995 publication of When the Sky Fell: In Search of Atlantis.  The idea that Antarctica was home to Atlantis has at … [Read more...]

Mysterious Celtic Mummies of the Gobi

By PHILIP COPPENS — The discovery of Caucasoid mummies in China shows that East and West have been meeting since the Bronze Age. Do they validate some of our most ancient legends?  Christopher Columbus is said to have been the first to break down the barrier that was the Atlantic Ocean, that massive body of water separating two continents. But such a physical obstruction never existed between Europe and the East – one could always travel over land. The discovery of Caucasoid mummies in … [Read more...]

Mankind’s Cradle of Civilisation Found in Java?

By FRANK JOSEPH— "Men fear time,” the old saying used to go, “but time fears the Sphinx.” That famous statue and Egypt’s Great Pyramid before which it has reclined for thousands of years have been long regarded as the most ancient monumental structures on Earth. Indeed, their late 20th century reappraisals indicated that they were even older than suspected. Beginning in 1974, a medical physicist and colleague of Albert Einstein, Kurt Mendelssohn, showed that the Great Pyramid was not the … [Read more...]

The Gympie Pyramid: Evidence of an Ancient Civilisation in Australia?

By GORDON DE L. MARSHALL— The Gympie Pyramid near the town of Gympie in Queensland, Australia has long been a source of fascination for people from around the world as well as Australia, and the subject of a great many claims about its origin and true purpose. (LEFT: Ancient statuette of the Indian goddess Lakshmi dug up near the Gympie Pyramid) Archaeologist Greg Jefferys, who has worked on the pyramid, refers to it as “a serious, famous and unexplained archaeological anomaly.”1 … [Read more...]

The First Race: Out-of-Australia, Not Africa!

By STEVE STRONG Over the last decade, all manner of unexpected archaeological discoveries have led to many experts questioning much of what was assumed to be fact. Recent findings and field-work relating to little ‘hobbits’ in Flores Island, Siberian hominids with mtDNA connections to people of Papua New Guinea, the exclusivity of our distinct genetic Homo sapiens code being compromised by a 4% Neanderthal input, and a variety of unexpected findings have called into question many elemental … [Read more...]
