GIANTS IN SUSPENDED ANIMATION READY TO AWAKEN

More than a century ago, a secret society discovered a cave hidden deep beneath the Earth’s surface. Inside the cave were several ancient giants, alive but in a state of suspended animation. We might think we know the truth about Earth’s ancient history but it isn’t so. Whistleblower Corey Goode claims to have spent 20 years enrolled in secret space programs and covert government operations. During this period, he witnessed a multitude of extremely bizarre events and visited places we never even knew existed. One of the most interesting of them was an underground chamber where ancient giants were being...

FORGOTTEN MYSTICAL RITUALS & MAGICAL PRACTICES

Over the centuries, historic texts have recorded a large number of rituals – magical or religious – some of which have been preserved in modified forms, while others remain only in obscure, old books. Yet others have been almost completely lost in the mists of time. Rituals were usually designed to bring an individual something he was lacking, or to ease his day-to-day life. Native Americans, for example, are known for their rituals to call for rain, practiced during periods of drought. The Mayas and Aztecs practiced bloody rituals based on human sacrifice in order to appease the gods from...

Archaeologists Uncover Decapitated Remains at Elite School

  Archaeologists Uncover Decapitated Remains at Elite School Archaeologists recently uncovered the decapitated heads of children, buried since the Bronze Age in a remote cave on the grounds of the prestigious Gordonstoun School in Scotland. As the Daily Mail reports, the remains date back to the period between 1100 B.C. and 900 B.C. Taken in the context of modern sensibilities, this discovery may seem grisly and hint at unsavory customs within ancient Scottish culture, but history especially should never be taken at face value. A History of Discovery First, it’s important to understand that ancient remains within Scottish caves are...

Ancient Shipwreck Reveals New Treasures An ancient shipwreck may may reveal new clues into the lives of Greek aristocracy. A bone flute and a bronze armrest are now among the latest discoveries found in the wreckage of the sunken Greek ship of Antikythera, dated to around 65 B.C.

9,000-year-old Skull is Oldest Known American Ritual Decapitation

9,000-Year-Old Skull  is Oldest Known American Decapitation Academics generally accept that decapitation was practiced by Amerindians. A new discovery has revealed that the practice may have been both older and more widespread, and may even have been performed for different reasons, than previously known. A team led by André Strauss of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany has used accelerator mass spectrometry to date a male skull, cervical vertebrae, and hands found buried together in Lapa do Santo, Brazil.  The remains were dated at 9,000 years before the present. Previously, the oldest known examples were only 3,000 years...

Mars anomaly hunters spotted what was subsequently dubbed as “Marshenge” in a photograph, estimated to have been taken by the HiRISE instrument on-board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in the same grouping of photos listed on University...

Alien Abduction in Japanese Folk Tale?

Does a statue at an ancient shrine in southern Japan depict an alien abduction? Some Modern UFOlogists think it does. The statue depicts the very old and popular legend of Urashima: Taro the Fisherman. In the 8th century folktale Taro saves the life of a injured tortoise and is rewarded with a journey to an undersea kingdom. There he sees many things of wonder, including a huge and luxurious subterranean palace. If that wasn’t enough, the tortoise he saved has now transformed herself into a beautiful princess. She brings Taro to her father, the Emperor, who thanks him for saving his...

UFO Hunters Find Disc-Shaped Stone in Russia

UFO Hunters Find Disc- Shaped Stone in Russia UFO enthusiasts have found a disc-shaped stone object measuring four meters last week, according to the Russian website Bloknot-Volgograd. This disc was one of many that have been found in-and-around the Volgograd region, believed by some to be remnants of UFO technology.

New Potential Species in Human Lineage Discovered

New Potential Species in Human Lineage Discovered A group of scientists have unearthed a potential candidate for ‘new species of human’—one that could shake the very foundation of our understanding of our evolution and even our identity among mammalians. The newest (or is it oldest?) potential members of our humanoid family tree are being termed “Homo naledi.” The team, comprised mostly of intrepid, cave-navigating women, discovered and classified the fossils under the guidance of Lee Berger, a professor at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. The University was located relatively close to where the remains were located in the Rising Star Cave...
