2015: Ten Creepy Images of the Shrunken Heads of Ecuador

Headhunting is a practice that has been carried out by numerous cultures throughout the world. For instance, during the Qin dynasty in ancient China, it is claimed that soldiers collected the heads of their dead enemies, and tied them around their waists. This was intended to terrorize and demoralize their enemies. Despite the fact that headhunting was not too uncommon a practice, the shrinking of human heads is one that was unique to the Jivaro natives of Ecuador and Peru. The process of making a shrunken head began by obtaining a human head in battle. A head was removed from the body by cutting the skin at the extreme base of the neck. An incision was made up the back of the neck in order to peel the flesh away from the skull. The entire skull was then removed and thrown away. The eyes were sewn shut, and the […] Read More

2015: Evidence of Advanced Ancient Technology: Puma Punku

Pumas Punku is perhaps one of the most incredible ancient sites on planet Earth that display the incredible stone masonry skills of its mysterious builders. Puma Punku means the door of the puma in the native Aymara language. The precision stone masonry found at Puma Punku is both incredibly mysterious and beautiful, but most interestingly, this ancient archaeological site has features that engineers and architects would have a hard time replicating today. One of the most interesting things about Puma Punku, in my opinion, is the fact that it is located in the vicinity of Lake Titicaca which is found at an altitude of 3.812 meters above sea-level; by volume of water, it is the largest lake in South America and it is the highest navigable lake on our planet. The origin of the name of the lake “Titicaca” is unknown, according to legends, Titicaca is translated to “Rock […] Read More

2015: Teotihuacan Structures

At its peak around 500-600 A.D., Teotihuacan contained perhaps 200,000 people. It was a well-planned city covering nearly eight square miles and larger and more advanced than any European city of the time. Its civilization was contemporary with that of ancient Rome and lasted longer – more than 500 years. Though archaeologists have long been fascinated with the site, Teotihuacan’s culture and history are still largely mysterious. The civilization left massive ruins, but no trace has yet been found of a writing system and very little is known for sure about its inhabitants, who were succeeded first by the Toltecs and then by the Aztecs. The Aztecs did not live in the city but gave the place and its major structures their current names. They considered it the “Place of the Gods” – a place where, they believed, the current world was created. This sacred, truncated edifice stood 210 […] Read More

2015: The Pervasive Deception To Define Everything Ancestrally Indigenous As Extraterrestrial

April 10, 2015 – PERU – Yesterday, I wrote an article about a set of genetic tests done on a sample from one of the famous elongated Paracas skulls, which are 3,000 years old and were found in southern Peru. The basic news was this: some genetic tests had found DNA in the skulls that was reportedly previously “unknown in any human, primate, or animal known so far.” The implication, helped by the distinctly B-movie “alien” appearance of the skulls, was that the skulls must contain extraterrestrial DNA. Scientists and archaeologists generally believe that the skulls’ strange appearance is the result of intentional deformation practiced by the Paracas culture. I saw this story floating around in the paranormal blogosphere for a few days before […] Read More

1996: Quimbaya Artifacts

The Quimbaya artifacts are several dozen golden objects, found in Colombia, made by the Quimbaya civilization culture, dated around 1000 CE, a few of which (the so-called Quimbaya airplanes) are supposed by ancient astronauts theorists to represent modern airplanes, and therefore to be out-of-place artifacts. The whole of the figurines, measuring 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.5 cm) each, are described in mainstream archaeology as depicting birds, lizards, amphibians and insects common in that region and period, some of them highly stylized, as in the Gold Museum, Bogotá. In 1994, Germans Peter Belting and Conrad Lubbers created simplified radio-controlled scale models of these objects and showed that their models, which lack some convoluted features present in the real figurines, could fly. Critics of the modern-day airplane interpretation argue that the pre-Columbian culture in South America did not have the knowledge nor the technology to manufacture airplanes.

2015: Pre-Columbian Contact with Sumerians in the Americas? It Would Appear So…

Like many things, classical archeology is fraught with danger. There is the ever-present danger of going into unstable countries to do archeological research, but more importantly, there is the danger of funding. Like it or not all archeological expeditions require funding, and that funding comes from governmental institutions as well as private donors which lead to an agenda being set. For the archeologist, there is extreme pressure to not drift outside the norm, less your funding be cut or you are even ostracized by your peers because you are seen as too radical. What this produces is a don’t rock the boat scenario where archeologists, when confronted with an oddity, will seek out the more conservative solution but behind closed doors, many of them have more radical theories about human history. This leads us to a fundamental problem – who and why are they writing our history? In most […] Read More

2002: STARGATE FOUND IN PERU?

by Paul Damon.  No copyright restrictions. PERU- Stargate, dimensional gate or simply carved rock?? This question has arisen in the minds of Peruvian Ufologists recently… I wrote the following brief article a couple of months ago for publishing in the British TruthSeekers Review and thought that it might arouse the curiosity of some in this newsgroup. I first heard of it while in conversation with a Peruvian UFO researcher. What follows is the compilation of information that was subsequently sent on to me after I spent much time ringing contacts around Lima. A huge mysterious door-like structure has recently been discovered in the Hayu Marca mountain region of Southern Peru. Hayu Marca, 35 kilometers from the city of Puno has long been revered by local Indians as the “City of the Gods“, and has never been fully explored because of the rugged mountain terrain. Although no actual city has […] Read More

2012: Tiahuanaco: Gateway to the Gods

Ask most people where the oldest civilization lived and you’ll hear answers like Mesopotamia (Iraq), Egypt or Iran. While these cultures can be traced back to 4000 B.C., the mysterious ruins of Tiahuanaco, in Bolivia, could be 14,000 years old If you think the Great Pyramid in Egypt is a technological marvel, wait until you see what artists and engineers were doing in Tiahuanaco. This culture thrived at the breathless elevation of about 13,000 feet. They managed to somehow move stones weighing up to 200 tons and invented modular building techniques that would even today, be cutting edge. The most famous icon of the archaeological site at Tiahuanaco is the Sun Gate. This has been described as a “calendar” almost as long as the monolithic gateway has been known to exist; thus the Sun Gate has also been called ‘the Calendar Gate’. This calendar sculpture, though it undoubtedly depicts […] Read More
