Ancient Indian Sages Who Held Advanced Knowledge on Science and Technology

Many modern-day scientists see themselves as the first to create all the technological advancements we use today. Yet many of the so-called discoveries are nothing more than re-inventions created by examining the knowledge of the ancients. Many things related to science and invention have their origins in the thoughts and imagination of the sages of Ancient India. The Law of Gravitational Force and Bhaskaracharya Bhaskaracharya, or Bhaskara the Second, was an Indian astronomer and mathematician who was born in the year 1114 and died around the year 1185. He was born in the village Vijjadit in Mharastra. His surviving mathematical works are called “Bijaganita” and “Lilavati”. These have no equal in the scientific world. In addition, the mathematician also wrote the treatise entitled “Siddhant Shiromani”. In this treatise, he describes astronomical equipment, mathematical techniques, eclipses, and planetary positions. Bhaskara the Second was an Indian astronomer and mathematician who was […] Read More

Six Great Enigmas of the Ancient Civilisations

We stand today at an unprecedented turning point in human history. In recent years two versions of ancient history have formed. One, we shall call ‘alternative’ history, the other we shall refer to as ‘official’ history. The former ponders over a variety of anomalies and tries to make sense out of the corpus of evidence, i.e., the pyramids and timelines, why they were built, by whom and when. The latter conducts digs, catalogues pottery shards, and tries to defend its proposal there are no enigmas, and virtually everything is explained. At one point perhaps as late as fifteen years ago these two camps seem to be engaged in an informal dialogue. That all changed after, 1) the Great Sphinx redating controversy caught Egyptologists off guard and, 2) the impact of Chris Dunn’s book The Giza Power Plant: Technologies of Ancient Egypt at the end of the last decade. There […] Read More

Grafton Elliot Smith, The Orang Pendek, and Mysterious Fossil Finds

Grafton Elliot Smith History is littered with amazing findings that have been lost to time and potential groundbreaking discoveries that have somehow fallen into the background. In the 1800s and early 1900s, there were supposedly some rather amazing such findings by a well-respected scientist, but which have nevertheless been downplayed or faded with time. It is a rather interesting historical journey by a man who may or may not have had a great impact on the field of cryptozoology and archaeology, but which is intriguing nevertheless. Grafton Elliot Smith was born in 1871, and was an Australian-British anatomist, anthropologist, and archaeologist specializing in the human and primate brain. Over his prestigious and illustrious career, he would be the first chairperson of anatomy at the Cairo School of Medicine, cataloging the brains of Egyptian mummies and the first to x-ray a mummy, Professor in anatomy in Manchester, the chair of […] Read More

Ancient Indian Petroglyph Depicts Mysterious Twin Suns in Earth’s Skies

Archaeologists in India believe the might have found the oldest known depiction of celestial objects in a curious example of ancient rock art. The etched stone was found at the Burzahom archaeological site in India’s Kashmir Valley. The stone was unearthed during a 1969 excavation, but has puzzled archaeologists ever since due to its enigmatic depiction of what appears to be two large objects in the sky, possibly twin suns or twin moons. Now, a new study claims that the mysterious carving may depict a particularly bright supernova which occurred around 4,500 BC. Is the Burzahom carving a record of an ancient astronomical event, or is something weirder afoot here? The stone, above, and a rendering of its etching. The rock drawing appears to show two hunters closing in on a stag with the help of a dog beneath two large, luminous orbs in the sky overhead. Astrophysicist Mayank […] Read More

DNA of ‘Sunrise Girl-Child’ Reveals Origin of First Native Americans

“This could change everything” is a phrase that gets used far too often for unmerited discoveries, but this one deserves the superlative and more. “The study provides the first direct genomic evidence that all Native American ancestry can be traced back to the same source population during the last Ice Age.” Researchers studying the 11.500-year-old remains of an infant girl found in central Alaska were able to extract DNA from her skull and trace the genome to a previously unknown group of people that branched off from the first Native Americans either right after or right before they crossed the Bering bridge from Russia. The 6-week-old child’s cremated bones were found in 2010 in the Tanana River Valley with those of a stillborn baby. The locals named her Xach’itee’aanenh t’eede gaay or “sunrise child-girl.” Little did the locals know that what would rise is a new line of Native […] Read More

Eltz Castle: A Majestic Medieval Pile Owned by the Same Family for 800 Years

 Eltz Castle is a majestic castle situated on the top of a rock within a small wooded valley in Germany. Be it through luck or strategy, the castle has been mostly spared from the ravages of war. Apart from the stunning appearance, another interesting fact about this castle is that it has been owned by the same family for more than 800 years. Eltz Castle (known in German as Burg Eltz) is a medieval castle located in the western German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Besides its picturesque location, Eltz Castle is also notable for being one of the few German castles on the left side of the Rhine to have been left unscathed over the centuries. Moreover, Eltz Castle has been in the hands of the same family, the Eltz family, for over eight and a half centuries. ABOVE: Burg Eltz Castle.

A Third Pyramid Covered In Snow Discovered In Antarctica Could Be The Initiator Of Change In Human History

Despite the dominant facts we know for our mother Earth, the artifacts found around it call the people’s attention and prove our antecedents were much more ahead than we think. Since it was launched, Google Earth is an advantage that serves everyone, including conspiracy theorists that enjoy looking for traces to prove their hypotheses. The satellites, as a feature that this service uses to operate, are a gift to the mankind that enables him to observe with good elevation. Recently, through Google Earth, a new discovery has been uncovered. It concerns the latest pyramid in a group of three pyramids covered with snow. This treasure caused a blast among the people of the community who study the “second” history. Two of the pyramids can be seen around 10 miles in the interior and the third one, near the shore. This discovery shook up the nation because no book ever […] Read More

Why Is THIS Map Missing In The History Books?

By the age of 10, most children in the United States have been taught all 50 states that make up the country. But centuries ago, the land that is now the United States was a very different place. Over 20 million Native Americans dispersed across over 1,000 distinct tribes, bands, and ethnic groups populated the territory. Today, Native Americans account for just 1.5 percent of the population, and much of their history has been lost, particularly as today’s education system is sadly lacking when it comes to teaching the rich and complex history of the United States. Here we examine little-known facts about Native Americans, which should be included in every history book. TRIBES As of January, 2016, there are 566 legally recognized Native American tribes in the United States, as determined by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Prior to European contact, there were over 1,000 tribes, bands or […] Read More

The Big Egyptian Sphinx Cover Up: Hidden Chambers, An Unexcavated Mound and Endless Denial

In 1935, Egypt was still the main draw for archaeologists digging for answers. It was hardly more than a decade since the British Egyptologist Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamen on November 4, 1922, that had lain nearly undisturbed for over 3,000 years.  Yet that is another amazing story still to be investigated. However, right now, our attention is focused on the latest attempt to hide the real ancient history of an unknown civilization that left us with great wonders both above and below the sands of the Giza Plateau. The moment Howard Carter opens the tomb of Tutankhamun ( public domain ) Ancient Lost City Unearthed in Egypt The first news of a ‘Secret City’ hit the World Press in the first week of March 1935.  By July of that year, much more had been found and the Sunday Express ran an article by Edward Armytage who had […] Read More

Stone carvings in a cave which could prove Mayan alien contact

Could these stone carvings discovered in a complex cave system in Mexico prove that the Mayans were in contact with Extraterrestrials? A group of treasure hunters on an expedition in caves in Mexico have found Jada stones with what looks like engravings depicting Aliens and UFO’s. The stones are said to date back to Mayan times and suggests that the Mayans were in contact with Aliens. The discovery was made in March this year but news of the find has only been released in the past few days. The treasure hunting team walked for several hours through undergrowth before they found three private caves, these were between Puebla and Veracruz Out of the three caves they found a number of Jada stones with the alien engravings in one of the caves and what they believe to be gold in another cave. There is one stone that shows something that resembles […] Read More

Why Modern Cartographers Are So Impressed With This 16th-Century Map

In February 1580, Francisco Gali was headed across Mexico to the Pacific Ocean. A mariner and cartographer who’d crossed the Pacific more than once, he had been living in “New Spain,” as Europeans called that part of the world, and was likely on another official mission that would take him to Asia. To sail out, first he had to make his way down the country’s Atlantic coast to manage a narrower crossing to the Pacific. On his journey, he passed through the coastal towns of the east, where the mayors had a special request of him. Make us a map, they asked. The Spanish crown had instructed every locality in its colonial lands to send home maps of their regions. This was a new endeavor in 16th-century mapmaking: Most maps of the “New World” focused on the coastline, and these local maps were the first detailed efforts to chart […] Read More

Researchers in Costa Rica Unearth A Nearly ‘Perfect’ Massive Stone Sphere

Excavations in Costa Rica have revealed a massive — nearly perfect — stone sphere, prompting experts to ask how such precision was achieved thousands of years ago.  “We have studied the terrain in which there are more than 15 of these spheres, and some are placed beside areas that give access to residential buildings as if they were placed there to welcome you. They were used as a sign of hierarchy, rank and ethnic distinction,” explains archaeologist Francisco Corrales of the National Museum of Costa Rica. The massive stone spheres are referred to as the stone spheres of Diquis, a region to the south of Costa Rica, and were made between the year 300 and 1500 AD by the predecessors of the Boruca Culture, explains a post on the Facebook post on the National Museum of Costa Rica. These massive spheres were located within important settlements, forming sets or […] Read More

Things Keep Getting Older: Archaeologists Find ‘Forest Cities’ That Are Least 45,000 Years Old

First we were told that the first human civilisations were Mesopotamia and Egypt, ca. 3000BCE. Then we found out about Göbekli Tepe, stretching the timeline back to 10,000BCE. And now, a new paper in Nature suggests that humans have been coming together in large numbers for a lot longer – but not in the now-arid regions of the Middle East. Instead, say researchers, “archaeological evidence now demonstrates that humans settled tropical forest regions “on previously unimagined scales”, and have actively manipulated these ecologies for “at least 45,000 years” – and perhaps much longer In the last ten years, the archaeologically acknowledged human inhabitation of tropical forests has quadrupled in age. There is now clear evidence for the use of tropical forests by our species in Borneo and Melanesia by c.45 ka, in South Asia by c.36ka, and in South America by c.13ka. There are suggestions of earlier rainforest occupation […] Read More
