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

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

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

Startling New Evidence for an Antediluvian People who Influenced the World

Column sculpture from the Merida Museum, Yucatan Mexico. Notice the heavy pitting and holes caused by erosion, likely caused from the corrosive action of sea water. (Photo: Cliff Dunning) The oral traditions of Native Americans are historical content that most academics refuse to reference, even in the face of startlingly accurate perceptions of early earth conditions and human occupation.  This is most apparent from an anthropological perspective when we seek to understand the great antiquity of the Maya, one of the most misunderstood and thought-provoking cultures from Central America. What little we do know about the early Maya comes from the Spanish, the few sacred books (codices) that were spared in the genocide, and recent decipherment of stela (standing stone markers.) Arriving in the New World seeking gold and new lands for the monarchy, the chronicles of the Spanish conquistadors described the ruins of magnificent cities, strange observatories for […] Read More

The enigmatic Gate of the Sun: a 10-ton, ancient structure that challenges MODERN history

This ancient ‘portal’ was created out of a single Andesite block weighing approximately 10 tons and is around 9.8 ft. (3.0 m) tall and 13 ft. (4.0 m) wide. Some authors argue that it dates back to around 15,000 BC. Located in the vicinity of one of the most marvelous lakes on Earth—Lake Titicaca—The gate of the sun was constructed thousands of years ago by an ancient culture inhabiting modern-day Bolivia, at the archaeological site of Tiahuanaco. Ever since European explorers stumbled across the enigmatic strcuture—archaeologists, historians, and tourists have been left puzzled by the Gate of the Sun. Among experts, it is known as one of the best examples of the degree of perfection that its building culture reached, both for the art and for the symbolism that treasures its reliefs. Most experts agree that this ‘portal’ was created out of a single Andesite block weighing approximately 10 tons, and is approximately 9.8 ft. […] Read More

Early Continental Connections: The Mysterious Settlement of the Americas

By: Micah Hanks It is a thought provoking exercise in imagination: if we were to travel back in time to the early Americas, what about the ancient landscape would meet our expectations? Conversely, what about the prehistoric past would surprise us? What if early humans somehow fit into the picture as well, and at times much earlier than we presently think they migrated into the Americas? Controversy recently struck the archaeological world, with the announcement that an ancient site in southern California may be, according to researchers, evidence of human occupation in North America as early as 130,000 years ago. This, if proven, would not only be extraordinary; it would fundamentally change everything we previously thought about early human migrations into the Americas. While this idea of pushing back the date of arrival on the continent by more than 100,000 years is shocking in itself, of equal intrigue in the ancient […] Read More

Stonework of the Gods: The incredible ancient city of Teotihuacan

Teotihuacan, aka birthplace of the gods, is an ancient city where –according to the Aztecs— the GODS created the universe. The early history of this ancient city is filled with enigmas, and its origin and founders are unknown to history. The ancient Teotihuacanos did not leave behind ANY written records, and we have no way of knowing who founded the city, what caused its decline or even what the real name of the place was.  We do know that Teotihuacan was one of the LARGEST pre-Columbian cities in the Americas with an estimated population of around 200,000 people during its peak, meaning that it was among five of the LARGEST cities in the world during its epoch. Archaeological evidence points towards the fact that Teotihuacan was a multi-ethnic city, with distinct quarters occupied by Otomi, Zapotec, Mixtec, Maya, and Nahua people. The power of Teotihuacan was felt nearly all Mesoamerican routes, as show the discoveries […] Read More

The Immense Collection of Strange Acambaro Figurines: Evidence of Dinosaurs Living Among Us?

Most mainstream paleontologists and geologists place dinosaurs on earth’s timeline at around 220 million and 65 million years ago, during the Mesozoic Era. Homo sapiens on the other hand, do not appear in the record until about 200,000 years ago – in the Middle Pleistocene, Middle Paleolithic (Eurasia), or Middle Stone Age (Africa). There are, however, occasional claims of evidence that dinosaurs and humans were not so temporally distant from each other, and in fact coexisted at one time. The bizarre Acámbaro figures are an example of this phenomenon. The Acámbaro Figures Emerge In 1944, the German shopkeeper Valdemar Julsrud claimed to have stumbled upon mysterious figurines while on horseback near Acámbaro in Guanajuato, Mexico. He said that he found over 30,000 of them with the help of a farmer. What is distinct about the figurines is that they appear to depict dinosaurs and humans living together. Additionally, there […] Read More

Unravelling the Mystery of The Marcahuasi Ruins and Their Connection with Egypt

The Marcahuasi Ruins are a group of rocks located on a plateau in the Andes Mountains of Peru. These rocks are notable for their curious shapes, and various hypotheses have been put forward to explain their formation. For some, these ruins were carved by human beings, whilst others argue that they had been formed by the forces of nature. There are those who claim that the Marcahuasi Ruins contain some sort of healing powers. Ruin Discovery The Marcahuasi Ruins are situated near the village of San Pedro de Casta, on a plateau in the Andes Mountains in Huarochirí Province, to the east of Lima, the capital of Peru. This plateau was formed from a volcanic reaction, and consists of granite. Located 4000 m above sea level, the plateau is about 4 km (2.4 miles) square in area.

Breaking Sacred Ground: The Confluence, and Disruption of the Balance of Origin Sites

 The Four Corners region of the United States is too mediocre a name to describe so vast an expanse of the Southwest, representing the corners of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. The extraordinary canyons and red-rock landscapes took millions of years to create; for spectacular beauty and grandeur, the Southwest’s stunning scenery defies categorization, and is unlike any other place on the planet. Four Corners is a broadly-defined region within a 500-mile (805 km) radius of where theses four states intersect. When travelers speak of the “Four Corners,” they may be driving from Zion National Park into Arizona towards the Grand Canyon, or through New Mexico, Colorado, and Monument Valley, passing near numerous national parks, historical monuments, popular cities, and unnamed, remote vistas which traverse the region; but it’s impossible to visit, appreciate and see everything during a single journey. One of the planet’s greatest natural treasures is […] Read More

Cascadia: The Other “Lost Continent”

It was said that the end came without warning… Once, long ago, as the people slept, the sun came out at night. It shot a flaming arrow across the heavens which burst into thousands of fragments, which then fell to the earth. The people were startled out of their sleep by a rumbling and quaking of the earth. The skies above them were on fire. The waters of the lakes and oceans rose. Soon the waves became mountains of water that rose against the shores. The sun was blotted out and darkness covered the great green land and water. Terrified, the people ran to the hills to get away from the pounding water. For days the earth rumbled and quaked. Torrents of rain began coming down so fiercely that water sprouted up out of the ground everywhere, overflowing the creeks and rivers. The people who knew where there was […] Read More

Talgua Cave: The Cave of the Glowing Skulls

Talgua Cave, known also as the ‘Cave of the Glowing Skulls’, is a cave located in the Olancho Valley, which is situated in Catacamas, a municipality in northeastern Honduras. The cave’s name may be said to be a misnomer, as the skulls do not actually glow on their own. Instead, the piles of human bones on the surface of the cave were coated over the centuries by a layer of calcium crystals. These crystals reflect light, thus giving the bones a glowing appearance. The existence of the Talgua Cave is said to have been known by locals for generations. Nevertheless, the area where the ‘glowing skulls’ were found seems to have not been known by the outside world. This site may be considered as a relatively recent discovery, as knowledge of its existence in modern times may be dated back only as far as 1994. Archaeological Investigations In April […] Read More

Sechin Bajo, Peru: The Location of the Oldest Man-Made Structure of the New World?

Sechin Bajo is an archaeological site in Peru. This site is situated in the Casma Valley of Ancash, a region on the northwestern coast of that South American country. This site is believed to have served as the capital of a pre-Incan culture, and was occupied roughly between 1800 and 1900 BC. More recently, archaeological excavations at the site have unearthed a circular stone plaza amidst its ruins. This has been regarded as a major discovery, since, based on initial analysis, the structure was dated to around 3500 BC. If this is true, this would indeed be a significant find, as it means that the plaza is the oldest man-made structure in the New World. The Sechin Complex Sechin Bajo is part of a larger archaeological area known as the Sechin Complex. The complex has been described as a “vast proto-urban settlement several miles in diameter”. The complex is […] Read More
