Written in a cogent, easy to follow, and yet daring manner, the renowned scholars, Shoch and Bauval, are at it again. In Origins of the Sphinx the authors challenge Egyptology at its core: at the Great Sphinx.

Methodically, the authors sift through a wide assortment of data, which seeks to ascertain a more precise dating of the ancient monument.

Split up into two parts, the first half of the book covers seven different topics, which includes an epilogue, while the latter half covers nine different appendixes that finalize the last half of the book.

Each of the initial seven parts is written solely by one of the two authors. At first this choice seemed odd, but it probably was best in order to differentiate who’s bringing about what particular commentary and argument.

Sampling a wide data set, the authors take a cursory glance at the architecture, which includes the Valley and Mortuary Temples, with multi-ton megalithic blocks, as well as more. A gander is also taken at a few of the visitors and researchers that excavated and sampled the sight, such as Colonel William Howard Vyse and Giovanni Battista Caviglia, who had a penchant for the mysticism, the occult, and more. But the authors don’t stop there. Also covered are issues with the fragments of the beard of the Sphinx, geophysical techniques to view below the surface of the Sphinx enclosure, considerations on water erosion on the Sphinx, as well as an in-depth analysis of the Sphinx’s possible construction date.

Regarding the date, Shoch, after some extended analysis in the chapter Sands Of Time, infers:

“…using a linear “conservative” calibration and assuming a date of 4,500 years ago for the western end (which in my assessment is a minimum date; it could be older), then the original core body of the Sphinx is minimally 2.7 times older than 4,500 years ago, giving a date after rounding of circa 10,000 BCE. All in all, I suspect that the proto-Sphinx was in existence prior to the end of the last ice age (that is, prior to 9700 BCE) and was contemporaneous with other structures, such as the oldest portions of Gobekli Tepe in southeastern Turkey. Put simply, the seismic data are compatible with an initial date of circa 10,000 BCE (or even a bit earlier) for the core body of the Sphinx. There is no doubt in my mind that the seismic data alone, independent of any other evidence – such as the surface weather and erosion, which I discuss in chapter 7 – strongly support the hypothesis that the origins of the Great Sphinx predate dynastic times by many millennia.”[pp.78-79]

Such an assertion will undoubtedly send shockwaves through the orthodox Egyptology communities. Then again, such a hypothesis will not surprise many of those exploring other avenues of research in the alternative research community.

Be that as it may, another salient component of this mystery discussed by Bauval is whether Khafre couples with the Sphinx as conventional Egyptology dictates, or whether some other theory might make more sense. Also discussed is what took place with the Dream Stela, the inscription of the Great Limestone Stela of Amenhotep II, the Edfu Temple Texts, and much more.

This book really features a lot more intriguing information than that mentioned. The authors are not only erudite in their research, but make the information accessible for the lay person. That also doesn’t even begin to delve into the nine appendices, which also give a deeper glance that’s a bit technical, but helps shed light onto the situation. Each of the appendices is essentially its own article, and yet couple to the rest of the book rather seamlessly.

If you’re looking for an open-minded foray into the mystery of the Sphinx, that’s meticulously researched while also offering the tools for incisive individuals to come to their own conclusions, hesitate no longer. The approach taken by the authors, although unorthodox, should be considered at length, for if what they say is true, then the history that we’ve been brought up with is drastically different than what we’re being told. Time will ultimately tell, but my bet’s that the authors are pulling on a thread that goes a lot deeper than merely the Sphinx.

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE SHOWN HERE ON DARK JOURNALIST FOR THE FIRST TIME ANYWHERE CHANGES HISTORY!

New Explosive Archaeological Discovery Shows Egyptian Royal Pharaoh Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti Deep Connection to the Lost Continent of Atlantis in Ancient Artifacts dated to 10,000 B.C.!

In this stunning Part Two episode with Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Expert Dr. Carmen Boulter she explains that her new and historic discoveries at a remote site in Turkey of an extensive collection of Ancient Egyptian artifacts reveal a connection to the Lost Continent of Atlantis. The evidence of an Atlantean Princess found among the ruins of the Secret Tomb opens up all kinds of questions for our dating of Ancient Egyptian as well as Atlantean history. As Dr.Boulter explains, ‘this is history in the making and the stunning discovery will forever change the story of early humanity and the rise of civilization!’

Atlantis, often scorned by academics as a myth, was said by the Greek Philosopher Plato to have been an advanced culture located somewhere in the Atlantic that sank into the ocean due to its spiritual demise. Later, during the 20th century, the Sleeping Prophet Edgar Cayce predicted that ruins of this lost continent would rise in modern times near what is now Bimini off the Coast of Florida. When a huge structure known as the Bimini Wall was seen by researchers near Bimini in 1968 it sparked a new wave of interest in the reality of the legendary Atlantis that continues through to the present.

Excitement, Mystery, Controversy, Intrigue

A great deal of intrigue, controversy and excitement hangs over these amazing findings that were excavated in Turkey inside a concealed mountain vault tomb. Dr. Boulter is a leading expert on Ancient Egypt and her classic five-part Netflix series ‘The Pyramid Code’ changed the way we look at the level of technological and spiritual development in ancient times. Her deep involvement in this amazing find has not only given it great credibility, it has also resulted in rigorous scientific testing being done on these objects. The explosive initial results give an earth shattering date of 10,000 B.C. to these classically Dynastic Egyptian artifacts. That predates the historic Egypt by 8,000 years!

Atlantis Royal Family: Atlantean Princess

The groundbreaking discovery throws a completely new light on the age of the royal lineage of the Amarna ruling family. This royal lineage includes Akhenaten, Amenhotep, Nefertiti, Hatshepsut and Tutankhamen. With the discovery of an Atlantean Princess at the site with the Ancient Egyptian Amarna Artifacts, It raises all kinds of important questions about humanity’s early history.

It strongly suggests that this unusual Amarna lineage may have been a Heritage of Blood transferred down from the Royal Adepts of Atlantis and is linked with legends of their advanced spiritual understanding and extraordinary psychic abilities.

Stunning, Controversial, Explosive and Fascinating, you don’t want to miss this extraordinary, history-changing Dark Journalist episode!

Recent Declassified Documents About Mars Discuss A Pyramid & A Lost Civilization 1 MILLION Years Ago

Late spring on Mars (centered on roughly 305 degrees longitude).

For quite a long time, Mars has served as a place of wonder.

In fiction, there have been many authors that have sparked the imagination of individuals in respect to the red planetary body.  It can be argued, however, that The War Of The Worlds, by H.G. Wells, was perhaps the quintessential turn in fiction which served to firmly inculcate consistent focus on the ancient Red Planet.  Another notable writer, Edgar Rice Burroughs, added to the Red Planet mythos when he published A Princess Of Mars, which was part of part of a series of stories he published on the red planet.

In modern times, it has been argued, that in addition to Mars containing pyramids on its surface, the red planet also contains a face on its surface.

Former NASA consultant, researcher, author and writer Richard C. Hoagland covers in his highly intriguing book, The Monuments Of Mars – A City On The Edge Of Forever [review here] that Mars features extensive evidence for artificial edifices, which do not seem natural in form, as well as many other anomalies which have mathematical properties on the surface.

To add a few more buckets of fuel onto the embers of the subject of Mars, the CIA recently declassified documents on Mars, which will undoubtedly bring forth much rumination and speculation.

The recent declassified CIA document in question is named “CIA-RDP96-00788R001900760001-9“.  This document is aptly titled Mars Exploration.  This declassification by the CIA was part of an extensive declassification of documents that took place in January, which cover a variety of highly thought-provoking topics.

Dating back to May 22, 1984, the document purports to be a transcript of an experiment conducted a few decades ago which attempted to remote view Mars approximately at approximately 1 Million years B.C.

Before continuing, as a preamble, it’s highly intriguing, and profoundly suggestive, that each of the exact coordinates that were given yielded rather astonishing results.  The possibility of this being a ‘random’ remote viewing probe ceases to decrease, and the probability of it being a follow up remote view and reconnaissance session at that time  increases quite drastically.  If this contention is correct, Mars would have to have been under some type of remote viewing surveillance for at least some time.  That’s just my personal speculation however.

After beginning to remote view the object, the subject begins:

rvm1
As we can gather, the remote viewer has spotted what seems to be a pyramid-like structure, which could go on to corroborate the possibility of there being pyramids on Mars, as covered by Richard C. Hoagland in his book.

After proceeding to new coordinates, the subject covers another notable point in the document, which is quite evocative:

rvm2

As we can gather, we begin by noting that there is an object that seems like an obelisk found, which is very peculiar to say the least.  However,the fact that the CIA individual that was  prompting the remote viewer made no effort to spend additional time on the object [or the pyramid for that matter], which should have put their suspicion meter into the red zone, leads me to believe that this particular remote viewing session, or at least this particular coordinate reading, was carried out to confirm previous readings carried out prior to this.

Ironically, a place on Earth where we see Pyramids and an obelisk is Egypt.  Now, to double-down, or triple-down on our ‘coincidences’, let’s take a gander at an excerpt that was published in the renown Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, which contained a chapter heading named, Signpost to Mars.  This was mentioned by Richard C. Hoagland, in his book The Monuments Of Mars – A City On The Edge Of Forever:

“One of the weirdest coincidences of the whole affair is that Cairo, the site of the (two greatest) pyramids, was originally named El-Kahira, from the Arabic El-Kahir – “Meaning Mars…””[1]

As Richard C. Hoagland excitedly intimates:

“Again – what were the random probabilities that there would exist two isolated worlds, both with “pyramids” and “sphinxes,” and now, that the one site on this planet where the most perfect, most archetypal form still stand – Cairo – would also form the key linguistic bridge that links those worlds…!?”[2][Bold Emphasis Added]

It surely boggles the mind, does it not?

Now, getting back on track, let’s take a look at the last tidbit of evidence which moves these ‘coincidences’ from the realm of randomness, and into the realm of coordination, by taking a gander at the last peculiar bit of data:

rvm3
rvm4

Although the document alludes to many different topics which that be covered, for our purposes, we will focus only on the fact that the document speaks of there being an ancient civilization that lived on Mars.  The remote viewer himself states that he perceived them to be ancient people.

A pyramid, an obelisk, and a civilization, all on Mars, all covered within a declassified CIA document.  What else does the Red Planet harbor within its confines?

Admittedly, remote viewing isn’t an exact science, and it’s more like an art, but this document isn’t the only piece of evidence showcasing oddities on Mars.

In fact, the book The Cydonia Codex – Reflections from Mars by George J. Haas & William R. Saunders [Review Here] brings forth extensive evidence for there being a correlation between geoglyphs on mars, and geoglyphs found throughout the Earth.  Some of the cultures that feature these geoglyphs on Earth are the Aztec, the Olmec, Maya and more.[3]

Lastly, but surely not less important, plasma physicist, and former NASA employee, Dr. John Brandenburg Ph.D., has postulated that Mars contains evidence of a nuclear catastrophe in its past.  Dr. Brandenburg came to this particular conclusion based on the fact that Mars contains Xenon-129, thorium and uranium, which are elements that are not of natural origins, and only come about from what he postulates as nuclear explosions, in extremely enormous yields.

For more information on Dr. Brandenburg’s hypothesis, please watch the presentation below, which took place at the Secret Space Program & Breakaway Civilization Conference in Bastrop Texas, in 2015, which yours truly was lucky enough to attend.  If you have any interest in these types of subjects, there are many more presentations which took place at the conference from many notable speakers such as Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, Jim Marrs, Catherine Austin Fitts, and more, all of which are just as intriguing as this one, albeit covering a variety of topics, and which have resounding implications.

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?

4 Thought-provoking documentaries suggest ancient sites on Earth are CONNECTED

Is there a correlation between the Pyramids, and other sites on Earth and the stars?

December 6, 2016

What are the odds that countless ancient sites around the globe are connected randomly? What if, a mind-boggling pattern lays hidden within these structures? 

The first thing that comes to my mind is, how could have ancient cultures placed numerous ancient sites with such precision? Why did they place them as they did? What kind of technology did they used, and is it possible that ancient maps such as the Piri Reis cartography –or the maps used to create it— helped ancient cultures get a sense of orientation on Earth?

What if in distant times, thousand of years ago, the ancients already knew the exact size and shape of Earth? What if in the distant past, ancient cultures like the ancient Egyptians, Inca –or even pre-Inca cultures— had a way of communicating, and even possibly trading?

‘Proof’ of intercontinental trade, thousands of years ago can be found in numerous archaeological discoveries today.

An article posted on Ancient Origins raises numerous questions for that matter.

Titled ‘Did Ancient Egyptians Trade Nicotine and Cocaine With the New World?’ the article raises numerous questions which are beyond fascinating.

The article states that German scientist Dr. Svetla Balabanova was studying the mummified remains of Lady Henut Taui, a member of the ruling class, when she made a surprising discovery – the mummy contained traces of nicotine and cocaine.

Considering the fact that tobacco and coca plants were only found in the Americas at that time, how did Egyptian mummies end up with traces of exotic plants in their system?

What if intercontinental voyages were achieved by several ancient cultures before written history indicates?

Once you consider that option, it becomes a realistic possibility that somehow, the ancients knew exactly where Europe, America, Africa and Asia were located. This would have allowed them to strategically place ancient sites around the globe, creating a mind-bending connection we see today.

These thought-provoking documentaries raise numerous question that challenge several aspects of modern-day history and archaeology.

Perhaps thousands of years ago, ancient cultures around the globe were much more advanced than what we are willing to credit them for.

The other things is, why did nearly all ancient cultures build pyramids?

And why are so many pyramids around the globe of similar design?

It’s as if the ancient Pyramids builders in Africa, America and Asia followed a similar ‘blueprint’ thousands of years ago, resulting in fascinating similarities among pyramids.

These are just some of the questions that arise after watching this documentary. What if there is more to history than we are being told? What if ancient cultures around the globe had many similarities that went unperceived until today? And what if, an ancient ‘mother civilization’ predates civilizations like the ancient Egyptian, Aztec, Maya, etc.?

 

THIS Ancient Egyptian Labyrinth is home to 24 megalithic, highly-polished boxes that weigh 100 tons

December 6, 2016

Located to the northwest of the famous Pyramid of Djoser we find an ancient Egyptian labyrinth which is home to 24, highly polished megalithic stone ‘boxes,’ weighing between 70 to 100 tons. Their exact purpose of the massive ‘boxes’ still baffles archaeologists who remain perplexed with their precision.

Ever since its discovery in 1850, the Serapeum of Saqqara has been a mind-boggling location filled with mystery.

Mainstream scholars believe these massive stone boxes were the burial-place of the Apus Bulls, literally speaking – the living manifestations of the Egyptian God Ptah. Curiously, of the 24 sarcophagi, only three have any type of writing.

This necropolis found near Memphis; Egypt is believed to have been built sometime around 1300 BCE, by Ramesses II.

Some researchers have ventured out to say the Serapeum of Saqqara is evidence of a lost ancient technology used by its builder’s thousands of years ago. Others however, indicate these intricate boxes are nothing extraordinary, despite the fact that they are among the most unique objects ever discovered in Egypt.

12075056_786871801438216_7109792845047299378_n

“Inside a tunnel system carved out of the solid limestone bedrock in the desert of Egypt, more than 20 granite boxes made of precision shaped Aswan granite are a true enigma. Said by some to have been the burial places of prized bulls, their real function is far more intriguing. And they are clear examples of Lost Ancient High Technology created before the time of the Dynastic Egyptians.” (source)

Just what kind of technology could have allowed its builders to cut, transport, stack and place blocks of stones weighing up to ONE HUNDRED TONS?

Further evidence that indicates the massive boxes at the Serapeum of Saqqara were not used as burial chambers was found when some of these were blown open with the aid of gunpowder, only to find the inside empty.

The question that the existence of these boxes raises is whether ancient Egyptians built these boxes as memorial tombs for the Apis bulls, and if so, how come no remains were found?

serapeum-at-saqqara

Interestingly, most of these boxes are made of rose granite, an extremely hard rock mined at a quarry located about 800 kilometers from Saqqara while other boxes were made from an even harder material, diorite, found even further away from Saqqara.

With what technology did the ancient builders manage to quarry these materials? Extreme precision… thousands of years ago, the question remained: How is this possible? What are we missing here?

Evidently, the empty tombs of the necropolis of Saqqara add another fascinating question to the many that still remain unanswered.
