5 Unconventional facts about the Great Pyramid of Giza that have Researchers baffled

0

The Great Pyramid of Giza is rightfully considered as one of the most incredible ancient structures ever built on the planet. Its beauty is unmatched and its precision and stonework challenge even the most advanced technologies today. The truth is that if we wanted to replicate such an architectural project today we would have an extremely hard time doing so.

Just how, ancient man achieved this without the use of power tools, the wheel and advanced machinery is a mystery that has baffled anyone who has tried understand how this ancient structure was erected. With a staggering 2,300,000 stone blocks ranging in weight from 2 to 50 tons, the Great Pyramid of Giza is an exceptional masterpiece that has inspired countless books, articles, and movies in the last century.

The great pyramid of Giza is the only remaining structure of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. However, this is not a coincidence since the incredibly intricate design and careful planning of the builders allowed the Pyramids of the Giza Plateau to remain standing after several thousands of years.

In this article, we take a look at five completely unconventional facts about the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The Great Pyramid was NOT a tomb

While many researchers firmly believe the Great Pyramid of Giza was built to serve as the eternal resting place of the Pharaoh, not a single piece of evidence has ever been found to suggest the Great Pyramid was intended to serve as a tomb. In fact, researchers have never discovered any hieroglyphics or ancient text that links the Pyramids to tombs. Contrary to the mainstream theories, no mummy has ever been discovered in the Great Pyramid of Giza. This important fact provides much-needed space to speculate about the possible use of the Great Pyramid of Giza, which, as we can see, was not meant to serve as a tomb.

When it was first entered by the Arabs in 820 AD, the only thing found in the pyramid was an empty granite box in the King’s chamber called the “coffer.” (source)

The most UNIQUE Pyramid ever built

The more we study and research the history behind the Great Pyramid of Giza, the more we find out just how unique this ancient structure is. In fact, no other Pyramid in Egypt is similar to the Great Pyramid. While most of them could be very similar, the builders of the Great Pyramid of Giza made sure to build something that will baffle coming generations.

Not only is the Great Pyramid noteworthy for its sheer size and megalithic blocks of stone, the shape of the Great Pyramid is unlike any other: It is the only EIGHT SIDED Pyramid in Egypt. The four faces of the pyramid are slightly concave and is the only pyramid to have been built this way.

The centers of the four sides are indented with an extraordinary degree of precision forming the only 8 sided pyramid; this effect is not visible from the ground or distance, but only from the air and then only under the proper lighting conditions. This phenomenon has remained a mystery for thousands of years mainly because it is only detectable from the air at dawn and sunset on the spring and autumn equinoxes when the sun casts shadows on the pyramid.

However, it is also the only known pyramid in Egypt to have both descending and ascending inner passages. While the reason behind it remains a mystery, it is evident that the Great Pyramid is the most unique structure built in ancient Egypt.

Mathematical perfection

The number of mathematical representations built within the pyramids is another mind-boggling fact that not many people are aware of. It seems that the builders of the Great Pyramid were not only exceptional builders and architects, by the look of things they were incredible scientists as well.

The fact that the relationship between Pi (p) and Phi (F) is expressed in the fundamental proportions of the Great Pyramid proves that the builder of the Great Pyramid predated the discovery of Pi by the Greeks by quite some time. According to reports, the vertical height of the pyramid holds the same relationship to the perimeter of its base (distance around the pyramid) as the radius of a circle bears to its circumference. If we equate the height of the pyramid to the radius of a circle than the distance around the pyramid is equal to the circumference of that circle. However, these are just some of the smaller fundamentals of the pyramids. The height of the pyramid times 10**9 = Avg. Distance to the sun. {5813.2355653 * 10**9 * (1 mi / 63291.58 PI) = 91,848,500 mi} Mean Distance to the Sun: Half of the length of the diagonal of the base times 10**6 = average distance to the sun Mean Distance to Sun: The height of the pyramid times 10**9 represents the mean radius of the earth’s orbit around the sun or Astronomical Unit. { 5813.235565376 pyramid inches x 10**9 = 91,848,816.9 miles} Mean Distance to Moon: ] The length of the Jubilee passage times 7 times 10**7 is the mean distance to the moon. {215.973053 PI * 7 * 10**7 =1.5118e10 PI = 238,865 miles } (source)

It is believed to have shined like a mirror

Its incredible size of the Pyramid allowed the structure to be seen from incredible distances. In fact, the Great Pyramid can easily be observed in numerous satellite images of Earth. However, its incredible size wasn’t the only important fact that allowed the Pyramid to be seen from great distances. The Great Pyramid of Giza was originally covered by casing stones made of polished limestone. Ancient Egyptians called the Great Pyramid “Ikhet,” meaning the “Glorious Light.” These casing stones are said to have reflected the Sun’s light in such a way that they made the Pyramid shine as if it were a giant mirror. These casing stones are no longer present since they were used by Arabs to build mosques after an earthquake in the 14th century loosened many of them. It has been calculated that the original pyramid with its casing stones would act like gigantic mirrors and reflect light so powerful that it would be visible from the moon as a shining star on earth.

Incredible alignment

The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the most amazing aligned structures on the surface of the planet. While many are aware of the ‘Orion Correlation Theory’, most people do not know that the Great Pyramid is located at the center of the land mass of the earth. The east/west parallel that crosses the most land and the north/south meridian that crosses the most land intersect in two places on the earth, one in the ocean on the opposite side of the planet and the other at the Great Pyramid. However, many people believe that in addition to the above, the Great Pyramid is mathematically connected with numerous other ancient sites across the planet, one of them being Stonehenge in England. The theory which suggests that numerous ancient monuments are linked proposed by Alfred Watkins in 1921 who came up with the idea that ancient sites were specifically placed on certain points across the globe. These sites could be discovered by following what Alfred Watkins referred to as Ley Lines.

In this article, we take a look at ten of the most impressive, rare and ancient images of the Pyramids at Giza we’ve managed to find. Behold fifteen breathtaking images of the most incredible ancient structures on the planet like you’ve never seen them before.

The-Pyramids-taken-in--one-of-th-oldest-images - 15 extremely rare, ancient images of the Pyramids of Giza you’ve probably never seen

The Pyramids at the Giza plateau are considered by many as some of the most incredible ancient monuments ever erected by mankind while others believe it is the ultimate evidence that before written history, our planet was inhabited by extremely advanced civilizations and one of their most incredible achievements is the construction of the Great Pyramid. While we are still unsure as to what the Pyramids original purpose was when they were built and by whom, we know that the Pyramids of the Giza plateau are one of the most famous ancient monuments on the surface of the world. This has placed them on the list of most photographed ancient sites on the planet.

Researchers estimate that the original builders of the Great Pyramid of Giza used a staggering 2,300,000 stone blocks weighing from 2 to 50 tons to complete the construction of the Pyramid. If you ask me that is an impressive number that still challenges today’s engineers, architects, and machinery.

What makes the Great Pyramid even more impressive is the fact that the mortar used in the construction fo the Pyramids is of an unknown origin (Yes, no explanation was given). It has been analyzed and its chemical composition is known, but it cannot be reproduced. It is stronger than the stone and still holding up today.

In the distant past, when the Pyramids were just built, it is believed that the Great Pyramid of Giza was covered with casing stones (made of highly polished limestone). These casing stones reflected the sun’s light and made the pyramid shine like a jewel. They are no longer present being used by Arabs to build mosques after an earthquake in the 14th century loosened many of them. It has been calculated that the original pyramid with its casing stones would act like gigantic mirrors and reflect light so powerful that it would be visible from the moon as a shining star on earth. Appropriately, the ancient Egyptians called the Great Pyramid “Ikhet,” meaning the “Glorious Light.”  How these blocks were transported and assembled into the pyramid is still a mystery. (source)

Of all the Pyramids in Egypt today, the Great Pyramid is the only one in Egypt with descending and ascending inner passages is a fact that cannot be overlooked when comparing it to other similar structures in Egypt. While the reason behind it remains a mystery, it is evident that the Great Pyramid was a unique structure built in ancient Egypt.

The list of impressive features of the Pyramids at the Giza plateau is very extensive, but this article aims at showing you this incredibly ancient structure as you have probably never seen before.

Today, there are probably millions of beautiful images of the Great Pyramids, and accompanying structures, however in this article, we take a look at some of the rarest and oldest images we managed to get our hands on.

The truth about the Illuminati and their influence on society

0

How much do we know about the Illuminati? Are they a real group that exists even today? Or are they the result of complex ideas that have given birth to numerous articles, books, and films about them?


cropped-The-all-seeing-eye. - The truth about the Illuminati and their influence on society


The Illuminati are one of the largest sources of fantasy, controversy, modern mythology, conspiracy theories and debates around the world. People had become more interested in the mysteries behind this secret group in recent decades when numerous articles started flooding the internet, talking about the Illuminati, their secret organization and ultimate plans for humanity. Marketing has done an excellent job of promoting an ‘ideology’ that has been confused as a reality by many people.

The final goal of the Illuminati is to control society in every possible way, and they are often linked to war and political conflicts around the world. Some have even connected them to terrorist attacks such as those at the Word Trade Center, and the Assassination of JFK.

Prominent figures in society like Pope Francis and singers like Beyoncé, Jay-Z among others are often said to be part of this secret group. However, actual evidence linking anyone to them has never been discovered, and most people believe information that delicate will never leak to the press. However, there are those who believe in their official goal: to oppose superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life and abuses of state power.

But, is this secret group real? Do they actually exist and rule the world in the background while society remains unaware of their presence? Well, the so-called ‘order of the Illuminati’ was founded in 1776 in Bavaria, Germany. Illuminati is the plural of Latin illuminatus, which means enlightened.

This secret group was founded by Jurist Adam Weishaupt on May 1st in Bavaria. The group’s structure was based on the orders of the Masonic iconography using many symbols for aesthetic purposes linked to the world of the occult, as the staff, the obelisk, and the “all-seeing eye.”

The Illuminati were outlawed in 1785 by Prince Karl Theodor and dissolved. However, authors such as Agustin Barruel, Nesta H. Webster, and William Guy Carr warned that the organization could have continued to operate clandestinely after its dissolution, and have participation in events like the French Revolution or the Bolshevik Revolution. Many people believe that they continue operating illegally even today, and have expanded their influence all across the world. Interestingly, modern historians have even proposed that the founding fathers of the United States of America were part of the Illuminati. Contemporary historian Mitch Horowitz believes that today, the Illuminati are just an empty place where citizens put their concerns about the actual functioning of economic and political powers which dominate in the world.

While millions of people consider that this secret group is, in fact, real, and continues to operate behind our backs, in the shadows. Moreover, there are others who firmly believe that the Illuminati are nothing more than made up stories based on a small group that was founded in the 1770’s but quickly dissolved afterward.

In the 21st century, looking back at history, we will find that the Illuminati have gained extreme popularity due to numerous novels, books and films being published and filmed based on their history.

Whether or not the Illuminati are more than just an idea created by modern society is something up for debate since evidence of their existence is nearly impossible to find.

Is There a 9,000 Year Old Stonehenge At The Bottom Of Lake Michigan?

0

Did you know that there is a 9,000-year-old Stonehenge at the bottom of Lake Michigan? According to researchers, not only is there a complex site at the bottom of the lake, but diving expeditions have photographed intricate carvings on submerged boulders.


traverse-bay-underwater-Stonehenge - Is There a 9,000 Year Old Stonehenge At The Bottom Of Lake Michigan?


It seems that Scientists have undoubtedly stumbled across an incredible ancient structure located at the Bottom of Lake Michigan. Even though the discovery was made in 2007; a few people have heard of its existence.

Located 40 feet under the surface of Lake Michigan, Professor of Underwater Archaeology Mark Hooley discovered the site with his colleague Brian Abbot after exploring the lake with sonar equipment. While they initially were hoping to find lost shipwrecks, they stumbled upon one of the most incredible discoveries in the last decades.

After several sweeps, they discovered a set of stones on the bottom of the lake that caught their interest. Divers were sent down to investigate the curious formations and document whatever they could find.

“It was really spooky when we saw it in the water,” Holley said. “The whole site is spooky, in a way. When you’re swimming through a long line of stones and the rest of the lake bed is featureless, it’s just spooky.”

Today, not many know the exact location of the underwater complex in order to satisfy the Grand Traverse Bay’s American Indian community, whose interest remains solely in the preservation of the site, minimizing visits.

However, the incredibly aligned stones are not the only thing that baffled researchers. One of the objects photographed underwater is a boulder which according to many is believed to depict what appears to be a prehistoric carving of a mastodon, an ancient animal which is believed to have inhabited the area over 10,000 years ago.

The ancient artwork allegedly present on the rock remains unconfirmed since researchers are trying to obtain more evidence which supports their theory: that this is in fact, an ancient carving of prehistoric men. However, since the boulder remains underwater its hard to come up with conclusive evidence.

Professor Mark Hooley has been working with computer models of the boulder in hopes that this will help determine the nature of the markings. Charles Cleland, a retired curator of Great Lakes Archaeology and Ethnology at Michigan State University, remains skeptical about the discovery and suggesting that petroglyphs of this kind are extremely rare to find in the Upper Midwest, adding that the discovery is of value.

“But I think this is certainly something that needs to be investigated,” Cleland said. “It would be unthinkable to leave it alone and not try to figure it out.”

So far, the underwater site remains unauthenticated, but researchers stress that other stone circles of similar size have been discovered across the great lakes. Comparing the site globally, you will notice that such findings aren’t uncommon at all, as there are hundreds of underwater sites located across the entire planet.

Researchers speculate that human hunter-gatherers roamed the area some 9,000 years ago and that the underwater stone circle could have been erected when the site was part of the mainland.

The Entrance to the Sphinx: Rare image shows possible entrance into the Great Sphinx of Giza

Are there entrances that lead into the Sphinx? According to numerous accounts and rare images of the Great Sphinx of Giza, it is very likely that there are cavities, chambers, and tunnels, that lead beneath one of the most enigmatic ancient monuments on Earth.

This is a rare image of the Sphinx taken from a hot air balloon, in the early 19th century. This is before excavation and restoration. Notice the HUGE ‘hole’ located on the head of the Sphinx.

The Great Sphinx of Giza is without a doubt one of the most enigmatic ancient monuments on the planet. This marvelous ancient piece of architecture remains one of the few ancient pieces of work that nobody bothered to take credit for, and mainstream scholars have been perplexed by its mysterious history for years.

At 241 feet long and 66 feet high, the Great Sphinx of Giza holds the record as the largest monolith statue on the surface of the planet. But its beauty and mystery go far beyond its size.

The Great Sphinx was discovered (almost completely covered in sand) in AD 1817, when the first modern archaeological dig, led by Giovanni Battista Caviglia managed to uncover the Sphinx’s chest completely. After a couple of decades, the entire Sphinx was finally excavated in 1925 to 1936 by an archaeological expedition led by Émile Baraize.

Many researchers suggest that the Sphinx is incomplete, it was left half-finished by its original builders. According to numerous discoveries, scholars speculate that the Sphinx was originally intended to be a much greater accomplishment than what we are able to see today.

However, the incredible size and mysterious beauty are not the only things that have baffled researchers. The fact that scholars have no idea who erected this majestic monument only adds to the mystery of the Great Sphinx, which has already been the center for countless speculations connecting it to lost civilizations and extraterrestrial beings. In fact, there are some scholars like Mark Lehner and Graham Hancock point towards an alignment between the Great Sphinx, the Pyramids of the Giza Plateau and the River Nile in relation with the constellations of Leo, Orion and our galaxy the Milky Way.

However, perhaps the biggest mysteries are located within and below the Sphinx itself.

Many researchers have long proposed that there are many chambers located within the Great Sphinx and below it. Some have even suggested that the mythical hall of records is located right below this mysterious ancient monument. It is said that the Hall of Records holds the key to understanding our civilization and the real history of humanity. Mythologically, it is said to be a library buried somewhere in Egypt, and many people believe it could be located under the enigmatic Sphinx of Giza, watching tall and proud over the Pyramids of the Giza Plateau.

The Hall of Records is said to house the knowledge of the Ancient Egyptians documented in ancient papyrus scrolls and is believed to account for the history of the lost continent of Atlantis, as well as its location. Compared in importance, the Egyptian Hall of Records is just as the Great Library of Alexandria, which housed Grecian Knowledge.

While those who believe the Hall of Records exists was built by the ancient Egyptian civilization, there are others who think that the Hall existed but was not built by the Ancient Egyptians, but rather by a much older ancient civilization that predates the Ancient Egyptian.

Curiously, there are several extremely rare and old images of the Sphinx, which show what appear to be numerous entrances into the enigmatic monument. These entrances are believed to lead into passageways that ultimately reach vast chambers located under the Sphinx. These chambers have long been associated with mysterious underground libraries filled with ancient texts that could piece together the ‘unknown history’ of mankind.

In the book Message of the Sphinx, Graham Hancock, and Robert Bauval state that the Egyptian government together with American archaeologists have blocked any investigations around or underneath the Sphinx, preventing anyone from locating the underground cavities and finding out what is located beneath the Sphinx.

Several photos indicate there is a strong possibility that there are shafts and passageways leading towards unexplored chambers underneath the Sphinx.

Interestingly, Charles Thompson, who explored the Sphinx in 1733, mentioned entrances and a “hole in the top of the back” of the Sphinx.

Rare images of the Sphinx show numerous anomalies that were ‘covered up’ by later restorations. There are images of the Sphinx, which show a huge fissure on top of the hips of the Sphinx, which many claims led to the burial chamber. According to secrethistoy.wikia.com, there is also documented evidence of a large rectangular entrance on top of the hips at the back of the sphinx. This entrance measured 4 feet x 2 feet in size and is mentioned in many travelers reports of visits to the sphinx. This shaft and burial chamber that it leads to is thought to have been formed during Pharaonic times, to form a retrospective burial chamber, which a few people gained access to.

However, it is well known that there are many discoveries made in Egypt that have not been released top the public. There are also reports of numerous excavations that have been halted by the Egyptian Government for reasons of ‘national security’, one of the best examples is the enigmatic labyrinth discovered in 2008 by a group of Belgian and Egyptian researchers.

The underground temple consists of over 3000 rooms which are filled with incredible hieroglyphs and paintings; the enigmatic underground complex is located less than 100 kilometers from Cairo at Hawara, not far from the Pyramid of Amenemhat III.

This incredible discovery has been kept away from society under mysterious circumstances. The results of the expedition were published in 2008 shortly in the scientific journal of the NRIAG, and the results of the research were exchanged in a public lecture at the University of Ghent. Media from Belgium attended. However, the finding was quickly suppressed since the Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (Egypt) put a hold to all further communications about the discovery due to Egyptian National Security sanctions.

This means that it wouldn’t be a surprise that cavities, chambers, and tunnels discovered under the Sphinx have been dealt with ‘properly’ by the authorities in order to keep whatever is below the Sphinx, a secret hidden from society.

This Ancient Chinese earthquake detector predates modern devices by nearly two millennia

Predating the modern European seismograph by approximately 1,000 years, this ancient Chinese device still works today with enviable precision in detecting earthquakes.


east-han-seismograph-ft - This Ancient Chinese earthquake detector predates modern devices by nearly two millennia


Although we are still unable to predict with accuracy when and where an earthquake will happen, we have made significant advances in the detection, recording, and measurement of seismic waves. However, many are unaware of the fact that the process that led us towards or modern detection methods started nearly 2000 years ago with the creation of the first Earthquake detector in 132 AD by Chinese inventor Zhang Heng (張衡). It is worth mentioning that the ancient seismograph has an enviable precision even today to detect earthquakes at great distances.

Interestingly in 2005 scientists from Zhengzhou –located only a few miles from the hometown of the famous inventor—created a replica of the ancient seismograph and used it to detect simulated earthquakes based on four different and real events which occurred in China and Vietnam. To the surprise of scientists the ancient seismograph invented by Zhang Heng detected them all.

In the second century the ancient Chinese were unaware of the fact that earthquakes were caused by activity of geological faults’ friction on the edges of tectonic plates or by volcanic processes; instead they explained the phenomenon as riots between the cosmic energies of yin and yang in conjunction with the discontent of the heavens –which was considered a warning—of acts committed by the ruling class in power. Taking this into account historians note that it was critical for Ancient Rulers to understand when an earthquake was about to occur.


seismoscope - This Ancient Chinese earthquake detector predates modern devices by nearly two millennia


Born in the city of Nanyang, Zhang Heng was a skillful scientist, engineer, astronomer, painter and writer. During a long period of his life he was a Royal Astronomer in the Eastern Han Dynasty and he is credited with the creation of one of the first star maps rivaling its counterpart created by Hipparchus in the year 129 B.C. and unknown to Zhang. In this map the Chinese polymath depicted the exact positions of 2,500 stars and baptized about 320 of them. He estimated that the night sky, from which only one part was visible, contained around 11,500 stars an exaggerated figure for an observer with a good view, but which turned out to not a bad estimate. He explained the lunar eclipses with staggering precision and argued that these occur when the moon crossed the shadow of the Earth and imagined planet Earth as a small sphere suspended in space and surrounded by an immense and very distant spherical space. In the year 123 he corrected the calendar to coincide with the seasons.

However, the most famous project by Zhang Heng was that of the invention of the seismograph which predates the modern ‘European’ seismograph by approximately 1,700 years. Zhang Heng’s device was so accurate that it could detect earthquakes from great distances which was something that was appreciated by the imperial court. The device was a vase-shaped object with several heads of dragons on its sides. Each one of the dragons had a bronze sphere in their mouth. Around the feet of the dragons Zhang Heng placed several bronze frogs with their mouths open. If the device registered an earthquake one of the bronze spheres would automatically loosen and fall in the mouth of the frogs. The position of the frogs indicated the direction where the Earthquake occurred.

According to ancient records, on one occasion one of the spheres fell without any perceivable earthquakes. After several days had passed a messenger arrived with news of an earthquake in Kasu 600 kilometers from where the device was located and in the accurate direction pointed out by the ancient seismograph.

The Forbidden timeline of Earth’s History according to the Anunnaki

0

Based on numerous archaeological discoveries: artifacts, records and monuments found in the past by experts, it is believed that the Anunnaki (Sumerian: “those who came down from the heavens), an extremely advanced civilization from an elusive planet in our solar system, came to Earth, landing in the Persian Gulf some 432,000 years ago.

In the last couple of decades, numerous controversial discoveries have been made which challenge mainstream researchers and their views on history and human evolution.

Every time we write about the Ancient Anunnaki; we come across much discomfort from various sides of readers. While there are those who firmly believe the existence of the Anunnaki, and their arrival to Earth can explain many accounts which mainstream scholars cannot, there are those who believe that the ancient Anunnaki never existed and that extremely advanced civilizations never existed on Earth.

However, in the last couple of years, a lot of researchers are changing their methodology and starting to think open-mindedly.

The ancient alien astronaut theory presupposes that thousands of years ago even before recorded history our planet was visited by astronauts from another world, intelligent beings with technology beyond our own today.  Many archeologists around the world consider modern day Iraq as the “cradle of civilization.” Between 3500 and 1900 BC the Tigris and Euphrates river were the home of the Sumerian people who prospered in this region.

Today when we read or seek information about the Sumer and the Anunnaki or the people that inhabited that part of the world we come across controversial author  Zecharia Sitchin.  In 1976, author Sitchin published his personal translations of the Sumerian texts in a series of books called “The Earth Chronicles.“ According to Sitchin, the clay tablets describe an alien race known as the Anunnaki, who came to Earth to mine gold. Sitchin practically suggests that extraterrestrial visited earth in the past because their home-planet needed gold to survive.

Based on numerous archaeological discoveries: artifacts, records and monuments found in the past by archaeologists and linguists, Sitchin indicates that the Anunnaki (Sumerian: “those who came down from the heavens), an extremely advanced civilization from an elusive planet in our solar system, came to Earth, landing in the Persian Gulf some 432,000 years ago. This advanced civilization colonized our planet, and their sole purpose was to mine large quantities of gold.

Anunnaki-Enki - The Forbidden timeline of Earth’s History according to the Anunnaki

Approximately some 250,000 years ago, according to Sitchin, the ancient Anunnaki merged their Alien genes with that of Homo Erectus and created a species known as Homo Sapiens, obtaining, as a result, a genetically bicameral species. However, humans were a hybrid species and could not procreate. Since the demand for humans as workers became greater, the ancient Anunnaki once again manipulated ancient mankind so they could reproduce on their own.

Based on The Cosmic Code: The Sixth Book of The Earth Chronicles by Zecharia Sitchin, this is the real historical timeline of our planet:

Events Before the Deluge

450,000 years ago,
On Nibiru, a distant member of our solar system, life faces slow extinction as the planet’s atmosphere erodes. Deposed by Anu, the ruler Alalu escapes in a spaceship and finds refuge on Earth. He discovers that Earth has gold that can be used to protect Nibiru’s atmosphere.

Led by Enki, a son of Anu, the Anunnaki land on Earth, establish Eridu -Earth Station I – for extracting gold from the waters of the Persian Gulf.

430,000
Earth’s climate mellows. More Anunnaki arrive on Earth, among them Enki’s half-sister Ninhursag, Chief Medical Officer.

416,000
As gold production falters, Anu arrives on Earth with Enlil, the heir apparent. It is decided to obtain the vital gold by mining it in southern Africa. Drawing lots, Enlil wins command of Earth Mission; Enki is relegated to Africa. On departing Earth, Anu is challenged by Alalu’s grandson.

400,000
Seven functional settlements in southern Mesopotamia include a Spaceport (Sippar), Mission Control Center (Nippur), a metallurgical center (Shuruppak). The ores arrive by ships from Africa; the refined metal is sent aloft to orbiters manned by Igigi, then transferred to spaceships arriving periodically from Nibiru.

380,000
Gaining the support of the Igigi, Alalu’s grandson attempts to seize mastery over Earth. The Enlilites win the War of the Olden Gods.

300,000
The Anunnaki toiling in the gold mines mutiny. Enki and Ninhursag create Primitive Workers through genetic manipulation of Ape woman; they take over the manual chores of the Anunnaki. Enlil raids the mines, brings the Primitive Workers to the Edin in Mesopotamia. Given the ability to procreate, Homo Sapiens begins to multiply.

200,000
Life on Earth regresses during a new glacial period.

100,000
Climate warms again. The Anunnaki (the biblical Nefilim), to Enlil’s growing annoyance, marry the daughters of Man.

Enki and Ninhursag elevate humans of Anunnaki parentage to rule in Shuruppak. Enlil enraged. Plots Mankind’s demise.

13,000
Realizing that the passage of Nibiru in Earth’s proximity will trigger an immense tidal wave, Enlil makes the Anunnaki swear to keep the impending calamity a secret from Mankind.

Events After the Deluge

11,000 B.C.
Enki breaks the oath, instructs Ziusudra/Noah to build a submersible ship. The Deluge sweeps over the Earth; the Anunnaki witness the destruction from their orbiting spacecraft.

Enlil agrees to grant the remnants of Mankind implements and seeds; agriculture begins in the highlands. Enki domesticates animals.

10,500 B.C.
The descendants of Noah are allotted three regions. Ninurta, Enlil’s foremost son, dams the mountains and drains the rivers to make Mesopotamia habitable; Enki reclaims the Nile valley. The Sinai peninsula is retained by the Anunnaki for a post-Diluvial spaceport; a control center is established on Mount Moriah (the future Jerusalem).

3,800 B.C.
Urban civilization begins in Sumer as the Anunnaki reestablish there the Olden Cities, beginning with Eridu and Nippur.

Anu comes to Earth for a pageantful visit. A new city, Uruk (Erech), is built in his honor; he makes its temple the abode of his beloved granddaughter Inanna/lshtar.

According to statements from renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, Black Holes are not the cosmic prisons we thought they were, and could actually be portals to another universe.


the-original-interstellar-ending-was-darker-less-confusing-- - Black Holes could be portals to another Universe


During a lecture at Harvard’s Sanders Theater, renowned physicist Stephen Hawking helped about Black Holes during an event which marked the inauguration of Harvard’s Black Hole Initiative wich aims to join numerous scientists and focus scientifically on Black Hole Research.

For decades we have believed that Black Holes are in fact eternal prisons for anything that approaches them, Professor Hawking believes they could really be doorways which have a way out and are not cosmic prisons that capture anything in their vicinity.

During the lecture that was held at Harvard’s Sanders Theater, Professor Hawking, who is the director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge in England, talked in front of a crowd of over 1000 people. Hawking takes about his theories on the ‘lost’ information that get captured into black holes, suggesting that this information does not get destroyed, but rather transferred to another universe and is not irretrievable.

‘Black holes aren’t the eternal prisons they were once thought,’ he reminded the audience on Monday.

‘Things can get out of a black hole, both from the outside and possible through another universe.

‘So if you feel you’re in a black hole, don’t give up. There’s a way out.’

Professor Hawking compared the return of information from a Black Hole to a burned encyclopedia where according to Hawkins, information would not be unrecoverable, but rather hard to decipher.

The Black Hole Initiative will see Harvard experts join forces in order to get other interested in this rare cosmic phenomenon which according to Hawking and many other researchers, could help us understand the core principles of how the universe works.

Through the Black Hole Initiative, Harvard experts will join forces to ‘cultivate a sort of culture of people interested in black holes,’ said Chair of the Harvard Department of Astronomy Avi Loeb, The Harvard Crimson reports.

This initiative will also allow undergraduate and graduate students to take part in the research and share their thoughts and ideas on Black Holes.

Among other things at the lecture, professor Hawking talked about the recent discovery of gravitational waves which, according to Hawking, provided some of the first pieces of solid evidence supporting the existence of Black Holes, reports The Boston Globe.

Professor Hawking is one of the few who understands how Black Holes work. In fact, according to the renowned astrophysicist, we could use ‘miniature’ black holes to power our planet. If this energy could be controlled, mini black holes could provide all the energy the world needs. One mini black hole is believed to emit 10 million megawatts, Stephen Hawking said in a lecture on BBC Radio 4. These comments and suggestions were made by Professor Stephen Hawking in his second Reith lecture.  However, obtaining energy from ‘mini’ black holes isn’t the biggest enigma, finding them could prove to be a bigger problem, that is if it doesn’t actually destroy us in the process.

The theories proposed by Professor Stephen Hawking about Black holes are fascinating, and in his latest theory, Professor Hawking claims that so-called ‘mini’ black holes with the mass of a mounting could give off x-Rays and gamma rays at a staggering rate of around 10 million megawatts, enough power to supply the entire world’s electricity supply, ending the never ending demand/supply of energy, creating in turn, a much cleaner planet.

10 incredible quotes from ancient texts that hint the Nephilim were real

0

According to ancient texts, in the distant past beings referred to as Nephilim walked on Earth. This enigmatic species was not identical to humans, but was also not that different. They were a hybrid species, descendants from the Fallen Angels, a product of illicit relations between fallen angels and human women before the flood and Noah’s Ark. 


abebbcfdedbfa - 10 incredible quotes from ancient texts that hint the Nephilim were real
Nephilim and Fallen Angels, Ancient texts suggests these mythical beings were, in fact, real.

But who were these mystery beings and did they exist on Earth just as ancient texts suggest? In the Hebrew Bible, the word ‘Nephilim’ occurs on two occasions, both times in the Torah, the first one being in Genesis 6:1-4, just before the story of Noah’s ark and the second is Numbers  13:32–33 when spies sent to Canaan reported seeing ‘fearsome giants’.

Myth or reality? Here we bring you ten quotes from ancient texts which ultimately prove the Nephilim walked on Earth in the distant past.


Genesis 6:2

The sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose.


Genesis 6:4

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.


Numbers 13:30-33

But Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, “Let us go up at once and occupy it, for we are well able to overcome it.” Then the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we are.” So they brought to the people of Israel a bad report of the land that they had spied out, saying, “The land, through which we have gone to spy it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people that we saw in it are of great height. And there we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim), and we seemed to ourselves like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them.”


2 Samuel 21:16

And Ishbi-benob, one of the descendants of the giants, whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of bronze and who was armed with a new sword, thought to kill David.


2 Samuel 21:18

After this there was again war with the Philistines at Gob. Then Sibbecai the Hushathite struck down Saph who was one of the descendants of the giants.


2 Samuel 21:20

And there was again war at Gath where there was a man of great stature who had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot; twenty-four in number and he also was descended from the giants.


2 Samuel 21:22

These four were descended from the giants in Gath and they fell by the hand of David and by the hand of his servants.


Deuteronomy 3:11

(For only Og the king of Bashan was left of the remnant of the Rephaim. Behold, his bed was a bed of iron. Is it not in Rabbah of the Ammonites? Nine cubits was its length, and four cubits its breadth, according to the common cubit.)


Amos 2:9

“Yet it was I who destroyed the Amorite before them whose height was like the height of the cedars and who was as strong as the oaks; I destroyed his fruit above and his roots beneath.


A119: The US space project to detonate a Nuke on the Moon

Why would the US ‘nuke’ the moon? 

Called “Project A119“, it was one of the most secret projects whose existence has long been denied until recently when declassified documents about the project were released to the public. 

The Project referred to as A119, also known as “A Study of Lunar Research Flights,” was a highly secret plan developed in 1958 by the United States Air Force with the intention of detonating a nuclear bomb on the lunar surface. It is presumed that the purpose of this study was to demonstrate the superiority of the United States in relation to the Soviet Union and the rest of the world during the Cold War while scientifically speaking, it was meant to answer numerous questions in planetary astronomy and astrogeology.

Full details of the study were presented by Dr. Leonard Reiffel, who led the project in 1958 from a research foundation financed by the United States Army. Carl Sagan joined the research team responsible for the investigation of theoretical effects of a nuclear explosion in low gravity. Sagan revealed his participation in the plan in 1959.

Project A119” was never carried out, probably because the landing the first man on the moon would contain a better reception from the US population, than detonating a nuke on the moon, which would have kickstarted a space militarization Era. However, another crucial detail was mentioned by project leader Leonard Reiffel when he warned that of detonating such a device on the lunar surface would create a lunar nuclear fallout, which eventually could cause major problems in future lunar research projects and colonization.

The documents proving the existence of “Project A119” remained hidden from the public for about forty-five years. Moreover, despite the disclosure of the files in the early 2000s, the US government has never officially acknowledged its involvement in the investigation. A former executive at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Leonard Reiffel who led “Project A119” in 1958 revealed the existence of documents proving it was more than just conspiracy theorists at work.

During initial planning for the mission, researchers considered using a hydrogen bomb in the first place. However, the United States Air Force vetoed this idea since a Hydrogen Bomb would have been extremely heavy making it hard to transport to the moon. Instead, scientists decided to utilize a W25 Warhead, which is a smaller, lightweight warhead with a relatively low 1.7 kiloton yield.

The Soviet counterpart

According to later reports by the time the US had developed the plan to nuke the lunar surface, the Soviets had developed a similar project which differed from the scenario reported by media. Started in January 1958, it was part of a series of proposals under the codename “E”. Project E-1 entailed plans to reach the Moon while projects E-2 and E-3 involved sending a probe around the far side of the Moon to take a series of photographs of its surface.

LCROSS, NASA and bombing the moon

While the _United States Airforce might have put a hold on “Project A119“, NASA did bomb the surface of the moon for alleged ‘Scientific’ purposes.

Despite the fact that it is strictly prohibited, NASA released a ‘Centaur’ kinetic weapon which ultimately impacted the moon.

‘Officially,’ the main LCROSS mission objective was to explore the presence of water ice in a permanently shadowed crater near a lunar polar region. The mission was launched together with the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) on June 18, 2009, as part of the shared Lunar Precursor Robotic Program, the first American mission to the Moon in over ten years.
