While most of the USSA is freezing from record cold temperatures (one wonders how cold it is in Canada!), it seems appropriate to blog about this story which came into my inbox during the holidays from Mr. V.T., a regular article contributor here.  As one might imagine, this prompt some really high octane speculation:

Mysterious Fossilized Antarctic Forest May Offer Evidence Of The Great Flood – But Some Facts Speak Against This Theory

As one might imagine, there are those taking this fossilized Antarctic forest as evidence of the Flood. But there’s a teensy weensy “catch”:

The fossilized trees in Antarctica, discovered by a team of scientists led by Erik Gulbranson, a paleoecologist at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee raise a number of unanswered questions.

Scientists say the prehistoric forest on Antarctica existed long before the dinosaurs roamed the Earth. About 280 million years ago it was rapidly buried in volcanic ash, which preserved it down to the cellular level. The age of the forest alone speaks against the Great Flood theory because it is highly unlikely the Deluge happened so long ago.

Now, as one can imagine, that date of 280 million years ago sparked my interest, because if one adds “fossilized forest” to the small but growing amount of indicators that there may be very old and ancient artificial and perhaps even human structures on that polar continent, then clearly at one time in the distant path the world’s geography was vastly different, and Antarctica-Atlantis – if I may be so bold – was a part of it. The problem, as the article points out, is the chronology: either one has to assume a very old date for such things, which raises the question of how the Atlantis mythology could be preserved to Plato’s articulation of it.

One answer might be my “cosmic war” scenario which I outlined in my book of that name. In that book I hypothesized that the explosion of the planet that used to orbit in the asteroid might have been the cause of the flood myths, if that planet was a large water-bearing body. Shockwaves of water would have scoured Mars and concussed the Earth, perhaps burying Antarctica in water (ice) and altering the planet’s continental disposition radically. The problem, once again, is the chronology: in my scenario, that event occurred either at 3.2 million years ago, or at 65 million years ago. Again, the datasets of chronological benchmarks are all messed up.

But one thing does emerge from this discovery and its implications: the history of Antarctica, and of our planet, is in need of some drastic revision. The problem is, do we yet have enough chronological information to compile a comprehensive history that does justice to such scenarios?

My intuition tells me, not yet.

But… we’re fast approaching the point that the effort will have to be made.

Antarctic Atlantis: Human Settlements Under All That Ice Down There?

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
March 19, 2017

Just when you thought that Antarctica could not possibly become any stranger, reality comes along and upsets things. And it certainly has been strange. For one thing, temperatures in the southern polar continent have been on average about 20 degrees warmer than normal, and I even read a report that certain places in Antarctica reached a balmy 63.5 degrees Fahrenheit, and that indeed was very convenient, because we were told that the strange visits of former Secretary of State John Kerry and Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin were all about “climate change.” Well, indulge my high octane speculation for a moment: if one can manipulate weather systems, then boosting the temperature in Antarctica a bit to “help out the narrative” would not be all that farfetched, if one grants the assumption. And personally, I put nothing past these people. “See? it got up to 63.5 degrees Fahrenheit! So Kerry’s visit was about climate change. Nothing to see here, move along.”

Except that Kerry isn’t the only one to have shown a sudden interest in Antarctica. Readers of this website and of my books will know that he’s but the most recent famous visitor and world leader to take an interest in the continent, a list which includes Admiral Richard Byrd, King Juan Carlos of Spain, Prince What’s-his-name from Great Britain, Kiril III Patriarch of Moscow, and oh yes, did we mention the Nazi expedition and its sponsors Rudolf Hess – who ended up in Great Britain in May of 1941 for reasons that are still difficult to fathom and then spent the rest of his life in Spandau prison, where his British physician discovered reasons to believe that “Hess” was not Hess, while Frau Hess adamantly maintained he was, &c. – and Hermann Goering. One made add to this list the planned visit of elements of Russia’s Baltic Sea Fleet, which, as I pointed out a few weeks ago, was not known for the success of its half-way-round-the-world junkets (see the Russo-Japanese War, Admiral Rozhdestvenski, Admiral Togo, &c.). A strange mix indeed: Orthodox Patriarchs, US diplomats and astronauts, British and Spanish royalty, the Deputy Fuehrer of Nazi Germany (not as a visitor, but as an “interested party”) and the founder and head of the Luftwaffe (again, not as a visitor but as an “interested party”), and an American admiral and a few U.S. Marines.

Nothing to see here, move along.

In my previous high octane speculations about all this Antarctimania I’ve suggested that there might be four basic reasons for all this interest (1) “they” had need to conduct secret negotiations with “someone” and where better to do it than balmy Antarctica, where access is strictly controlled; or (2) “they” had found something down there, of an extraterrestrial nature, either life or technology or both; or (3) “they” had found something relating to humanity’s distant past and perhaps to the legend of Atlantis (after all, Antarctica is a continent submerged under lots of water in the form of ice); or (4) some combination of elements, or all, of the above.

With that in mind, consider this article shared by Mr. B.H. (and many others), for it looks like options (3) and (4) might now be the main contenders in our list of high octane speculative options:

https://worldnewsdailyreport.com/antarctica-nasa-images-reveal-traces-of-ancient-human-settlement-underneath-2-3-km-of-ice/embed/#?secret=c2WaT4oOJi

Note the opening two paragraphs:

WASHINGTON | Recently released remote sensing photography of NASA’s Operation IceBridge mission in Antarctica led to a fascinating discovery when images revealed what some experts believe could be the existence of a possible ancient human settlement lying beneath an impressive 2.3 kilometers of ice.

The intriguing discovery was made during aircraft tests trials of NASA’s Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS) lidar technology set to be launched on the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) in 2017, that aims to monitor changes in polar ice.

I don’t know about you, but assuming that these photos are genuine, the image on the right clearly looks artificial to me, and an Indian archaeologist, Ashoka Tripathi, as noted in the article, concurs:

“These are clearly features of some sort of human-made structure, resembling some sort of pyramidal structure. The patterns clearly show nothing we should expect from natural geomorphological formations found in nature. We clearly have here evidence of human engineering. The only problem is that these photographs were taken in Antarctica under 2 kilometers of ice. That is clearly the puzzling part, we do not have any explanation for this at the moment,” he admits.

The problem, as noted, is that this is buried under two kilometers – that’s about 1.2 miles for those of you still using the more scientific imperial metrology – and that raises the problem of how such a habitation became encrusted with about a mile of ice. Predictably, the explanation runs to the Piri Reis map:

“One of histories most puzzling maps is that of the Turkish admiral Piri Reis in 1513 AD which successfully mapped the coastline of Antarctica over 500 years ago. What is most fascinating about this map is that it shows the coastline of Antarctica without any ice. How is this possible when images of the subglacial coastline of Antarctica were only seen for the first time after the development of ground-penetrating radar in 1958? Is it possible Antarctica has not always been covered under such an ice sheet? This could be evidence that it is a possibility” he acknowledges.

« A slight pole shift or displacement of the axis of rotation of the Earth in historical times is possibly the only rational explanation that comes to mind but we definitely need more research done before we jump to any conclusion.”

What I find so incredible here is that the final two paragraphs are being advanced by Cambridge University cartographer Christopher Adam, who also appears to be accepting of the hypothesis that has been bandied about in alternative research for decades as an explanation for the 16th century Turkish admiral’s map and its highly anomalous depiction of the coastline of Antarctica without ice. The topic of axial rotational shift and even crustal displacement was first advanced by science teacher Charles Hapgood who made an extensive study of the Piri Reis map in his classic study, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Hapgood subsequently wrote a book about his theory of crustal displacement, with a foreword by none other than Dr. Albert Einstein. Let it also be noted, as I pointed out in my book The Financial Vipers of Venice, that in the marginalia of the Piri Reis map, the Turkish admiral also states that Christopher Columbus had mediaeval maps of the new world, and undertook a secret journey to the New World prior to his famous “voyage of discovery” in 1492, but that’s another story.

What’s intriguing of course is to contemplate when such an event might have occurred, and my high octane intuition suggests that this might have been concurrent with some ancient catastrophe, such as blowing up a planet in a war, the shock waves of which might have concussed the Earth, tipping it slightly, and burying an entire continent under lots of water which froze. And let’s remember, in Plato’s accounting of the Atlantis myth, the “lost continent” was known for its warlike ways.

So if this is human habitation, it certainly would be a significant enough discovery to call forth the attentions of US Secretaries of State, Patriarchs of Moscow, Baltic Sea Fleets, and Apollo 11 moon astronauts, for it would be an attestation of the truthfulness – in some degree – of the Atlantis myth. Recall however, that in that myth, it is strongly suggested that Atlantis was possessed of “technologies of war” that would be of interest as well, which might rationalize the attentions of American Admirals, Nazi Party Reichsleiters and the founder of the Luftwaffe. The problem there of course, is whether they knew of such things, and if so, how, since it is buried under lots of ice, and radar tomography from satellites did not develop until after World War Two.

So if it’s a human(or other) habitation, how does one investigate? Well, one way, of course, is to drill down through the ice and carefully excavate a subterranean chamber for conventional archaeological study.

And the other way, of course, is simply to melt the ice, while calling it “climate change.”

See you on the flip side..

Sensational! Archaeologists recover 47 pieces of Orichalcum—a metal used on Atlantis


Source: Ancient-Code.com
March 5, 2017

Archaeologists have discovered 47 pieces of the legendary Orichalcum Metal which is believed to have been used on Atlantis in a 2,600-year-old shipwreck.

Is this the ultimate proof Atlantis DID exist?


Some 2,600 years ago, a ship sank off the coast of Gela, to the south of modern-day Sicily. What experts found inside the wreckage has shaken the archaeological community: 47 pieces of a precious alloy that according to ancient accounts, was one of the most precious metals used in Atlantis.

According to Plato’s writings the metal—believed to be an alloy of copper, zinc and lead—was extracted and originated from Atlantis, and was used to worship Poseidon among other things.

The curious metal (Orichalcum) was first mentioned in the 7th century BC by Hesiod, and in the Homeric hymn dedicated to Aphrodite, dated to the 630s.

According to experts, the ship—which is believed to date back to the sixth century—was traveling to Gela, coming from either Greece, or somewhere in Asia Minor. The discovery was made by divers some 300 meters below the surface.

According to Sebastiano Tusa, renowned archaeologist and member of the research team, two perfectly preserved Corinthian helmets, remains of amphorae (jars), an anchor and several blisters (containers holding oils) were also found.


Plato said only gold was a more precious substance than orichalcum. Here are two of the recently discovered ingots. (Sebastiano Tusa/ Superintendency of the Sea, Sicily)

“The ship dates to the end the sixth century B.C.” It was likely caught in a sudden storm and sunk just when it was about to enter the port,” added Tusa.

“The presence of helmets and weapons aboard ships is rather common. They were used against pirate incursions,” Tusa told Seeker.com. “Another hypothesis is that they were meant to be an offer to the gods.”

This isn’t the first discovery of the legendary metal. In 2015, researchers diving near the shipwreck recovered 39 ingots of the curious metal.

Orichalcum or aurichalcum is a metal mentioned in several ancient writings, including the story of Atlantis in the Critias of Plato. Within the dialogue, Critias (460 – 403 BC) claims that orichalcum had been considered second only to gold in value and had been found and mined in many parts of Atlantis in ancient times, but that by Critias’ own time orichalcum was known only by name.


Is this the ultimate proof Atlantis DID exist? (Sebastiano Tusa, Soprintendenza del Mare-Regione Sicilia)

Furthermore, ancient texts reveal—Critias written by Plato—that the three outer walls of the Temple to Poseidon and Cleito on Atlantis were clad respectively with brass, tin, and the third outer wall, which encompassed the whole citadel, “flashed with the red light of orichalcum”.

“The waters there are a priceless mine of archaeological finds,” remarked Adriana Fresina, an archaeologist who works with Tusa.

Interestingly, Orichalcum is also mentioned in the Antiquities of the Jews – Book VIII, sect. 88 by Josephus, who stated that the vessels in the Temple of Solomon were made of orichalcum (or a bronze that was like gold in beauty).

Akhenaten Discovery Changes History Forever – Dark Journalist Interviews Dr. Carmen Boulter On Atlantis, Pyramids, Ancient Civilizations, Megaliths & More

Daniel Liszt
January 27, 2017

In this earth-shattering episode full of historic revelations, Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt welcomes Pyramid expert Dr. Carmen Boulter back to the show for some History Changing Revelations about the shocking discovery of a secret site unearthed in Turkey of an Ancient Egyptian chamber that bears a strong resemblance to King Tut’s tomb and that contains a wealth of Egyptian treasure and lifelike statues of the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaten along with exotic antiquities of the Amarna period. Exclusive PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE provided in this Part 1 episode to substantiate the claim makes this the most important Dark Journalist episode to date and represents an earthquake for our understanding of the ancient past, Changing History Forever!

Amazing Akhenaten Discovery Dates Egypt Back to 10,000 BC

This amazing discovery would be incredible and historic enough just by virtue of the fact of its being located in Turkey and suggesting that Queen Nefertiti fled with a small band of followers and escaped her husband’s fate at the hands of the corrupt Amun Priesthood. But this historic find has even more secrets to reveal. The early testing of the artifacts reveals the extraordinary data that carbon dating tests put the age of the artifacts at approximately 10,000 BC, which throws a completely new light on the age of royal lineage of the Amarna ruling family. This royal like includes Akhenaten, Amenhotep, Nefertiti, Hatshepsut and Tutankhamen. It raises all kinds of important questions about our ancient history and strongly suggests that this unusual Amarna lineage may have been a Heritage of Blood transferred down from Royal Atlantis and is linked with advanced spiritual understanding and extraordinary psychic abilities.

Queen Nefertiti and The Pharaoh Akhenaten

The story of Pharaoh Akhenaten and his wife, Nefertiti has been portrayed by mainstream Egyptologists in a way that suggests that the Amun Priesthood was heroic, in deposing the heretically monotheistic “mad king”, says Boulter. According to her, the real story is much more intriguing and it relates to Akhenaten’s esoteric knowledge about the founding of Ancient Egypt. Why did the Priesthood attempt to strip Akhenaten and Nefertiti from history? Was Nefertiti able to escape, to conceal ancient knowledge of Egypt’s Atlantean past and exotic origins in a secret sacred tomb in Turkey? The newly released Bombshell Photographs answer that question with a resounding YES!

In this stunning episode, Dr. Boulter she explains that her new discoveries, inspired by her intuitive sense as well as her expertise as a researcher, reveal that the corrupt Amun Priesthood attempted to eliminate the royal family in Egypt and killed the Pharaoh Akhenaten and his son Tutankhamun (King Tut), but that Queen Nefertiti fled to Turkey and escaped their vicious treachery. She also explores the possibility that Akhenaten and Nefertiti were Atlantean supernatural beings that were giving humanity a new mystical philosophy of peace and spiritual attunement.

Dr. Boulter also discusses her five-part documentary series, ‘The Pyramid Code’ that explores the esoteric wisdom the Egyptians used to build the incredible monuments at Giza. Her new documentary series called ‘The New Atlantis’ will unveil her cutting edge and exciting research of an Atlantean culture that existed before recorded history, which formed the basis of the Sumerian, Egyptian, Mayan, and Inca Civilizations!

Shocking, enlightening, unnerving, strange and compelling. You don’t want to miss this history changing Dark Journalist episode!

Cosmogenesis: Top Secret Archaeology Wars – Dark Journalist & Dr. Joseph P. Farrell PhD

Ancient Wisdom and Cosmological Defense System

In this exciting conclusion to their wildly informative and groundbreaking three-part series, Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt and Dr. Joseph Farrell separate fact from fiction about the traditions of secret knowledge, ancient high-technology wonder weapons and the modern race to discover them.

Farrell theorizes that the Great Pyramid is much older than recorded history and was originally set up as a kind of super-advanced cosmological defense system with the power to wreak havoc on Earth and in the Cosmos through a highly complex series of resonances networked inside the structure. It’s an undeniable reality that over the last century hundreds of researchers, physicists, geologists and archaeologists have examined and noted the highly unusual and amazingly accurate mathematical patterns in the layout and construction of this marvel of the ancient world. These patterns suggest a sophisticated knowledge of astronomy, Earth science, geology and geometry that was certainly not available to early Egyptian civilization according to mainstream academics, raising the possibility that the true builders of the Great Pyramid were a forgotten technological civilization that was wiped out of existence in the distant past.

Modern Archaeology Wars

From the Nazi obsession with ancestral elemental rituals and the ruins of early mystical cultures to the controversial disappearance of ancient artifacts and tablets in the looting of the Baghdad Museum during the Iraq War, Farrell sees an ongoing pattern on the parts of major world governments to discover secret prehistoric knowledge through covert modern archaeological warfare. This lost wisdom may have outlined the construction details for a super-powered resonance weapon which the peoples of the forgotten past used to wage a Cosmic War that brought great devastation during a forgotten chapter in Earth’s history and is remembered now only in faint echoes of a massive battle among the gods in ancient legends.

One of these legends, about a hidden Atlantean Hall of Records suggests a lost culture and their advanced technology are yet waiting to be discovered. This secret structure was said by the famous Sleeping Prophet psychic Edgar Cayce to be buried in a pyramid in Egypt and could be entered through a hidden passageway underneath the right paw of the Spinx. interestingly enough, two leading Egyptologists were actually sponsored in their early careers by Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment, the Edgar Cayce Foundation, and one of them even wrote a book about Cayce’s readings on the deep links between the development of Egypt by the survivors of Atlantis. Were they secretly looking for the Ancient Hall of Records using the Cayce readings while publicly disavowing their former sponsor and keeping in line with the official academic story?

Book Review: Our Occulted History by Jim Marrs

Our Occulted History is a phenomenal venture into the beginnings of ancient history, into the beginnings of an alternative history.

Jim Marrs, in this particular book, leaves no unturned, leaves no vault unchecked in his search for the origins of certain modern conspiracies.

Taking an approach that’s as deep in scope, as it is wide in breadth, Marrs trenchantly makes known mountains of evidence beginning from ancient antiquity all the way to our modern times which forms a vastly different structure of history than what we as a society have been taught.

Sampling research from heavyweight researchers such as Oxford educated Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, Zecharia Sitchin, Robert Bauval, Linda Moulton Howe, Philip Coppens, Robert Schoch, Michael Cremo, and many more, the author infuses the book with hundreds of verifiable data points.  That in and of itself might not seem like much, but when viewed from a larger point of view all of these dots and how Marrs connects them show how all this seemingly disparate information interconnects seamlessly.

Marrs covers wide-ranging subjects such as sacred geometry, the Sumerians, lost probes, the moon, forbidden archaeology, Tesla suppression, Coral Castle, Atlantis, the Dogon tribe, ancient civilizations of many types, Big Money, the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Big Pharma, mainstream media, and dozens of others, to make a sound case that there is an occulted history to the human race, and its far more magnificent, and troubling than what most people could imagine.

That shouldn’t be surprising given how interconnected the media is to the establishment.

Speaking troublesomely about this lock-down information grid, Jim Keith notes in his landmark book Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness, citing the work of author G. William Domhoff in The Higher Circles:

The power elite have created and developed that wonderful field of public relations on an incredible scale.  Some of the early practitioners of this art helped scrub up the images of the ‘Robber Barons’ families; others specialized in the corporate image and the corporate image and corporate conscience.  Functionally speaking, the public relations departments of large corporations, in conjunction with the giant public relations firms that service many corporations, have become the early warning system of the upper class, picking up and countering the slightest remark or publication that makes funny lines on their sensitive radar.  Thanks to them public opinion is well-monitored, with an assist of course from the alert social scientists in certain university institutes financed by the big corporations and foundations.  wayward opinions, once detected, are duly corrected by a barrage of printed matter and public pronouncement…”[1]

Keeping everything discussed in mind, Marrs offers us a veritable glimpse into the annals of ancient past.  Admittedly, there is only so much an author can do, but Marrs more than pulled his weight.

Whether or not the reader will agree with his thesis, that being that the elite are covering up evidence of ancient aliens since ancient times, is up to the reader.  What can in fact be said without dispute is that humanity does in fact have an Occulted History and its implications are profoundly disturbing, even if Marrs main thesis is disagreed upon.

[Book Review] Lost Secrets Of The Gods – Essays By Marrs, Schoch, Redfern & Many More

LSG.jpg

TheBreakaway
Zy Marquiez
August 14, 2016

Lost Secrets of the Gods had an interesting premise as a book.  However, this book was poorly executed.

While the book had some notable data to glean, it still falls really short given that many of the essays are weren’t as in-depth as they could have been, and the other essays do not push the envelope and play it safe.  A few were downright boring, and that’s not said lightly.  That’s actually sad considering the field of ancient civilizations et al is oft-riddled with mystery.

There were a few noteworthy essays though.  Predictably these are from Marrs, Frank Joseph and Redfern.

In a field where imagination and possibilities abound given how much isn’t known, this book felt rather run of the mill even for alternative research.

There is quite a bit of data to glean , it just depends on how much research someone has undertaken.

The book features information on Secret Societies, ‘Monsters’, Atlantis, Ancient Cosmologies, Giants in History, Ancient Astronaut Theory and much more.

Once one views those topics above, one would imagine that this book would be absolute dynamite.  And it could have been, but unfortunately it was quite lackluster.

If you are interested in any of the above topics, then would suggest researching any of the above topics in depth in individual books focusing on the specific subjects as much more information will be gathered/learned that way rather than giving them a cursory glance within this book.
