Diamonds Are A Sham And It’s Time We Stop Getting Engaged With Them

“Yeah, they say three years’ salary.” — Michael Scott, The Office American males enter adulthood through a peculiar rite of passage – they spend most of their savings on a shiny piece of rock. They could invest the money in assets that will compound over time and someday provide a nest egg. Instead, they trade that money for a diamond ring, which isn’t much of an asset at all. As soon as you leave the jeweler with a diamond, it loses over 50% of its value. Americans exchange diamond rings as part of the engagement process, because in 1938 De Beersdecided that they would like us to. Prior to a stunningly successful marketing campaign 1938, Americans occasionally exchanged engagement rings, but wasn’t a pervasive occurrence. Not only is the demand for diamonds a marketing invention, but diamonds aren’t actually that rare. Only by carefully restricting the supply has De Beers kept the price of a […] Read More

8th Grade Test From 1912 Shows How Far American Education Has Been Dumbed Down; Can You Take It?

by Kristan T. Harris, In Kentucky, an 8th grade exam from 1912 was donated to the Bullitt County history museum. The questions feature the fundamental foundation of education that we seem to have lost due to the dumbing down of the American education system. Now with the “Common Core” epidemic we can see our youth transformed by a cookie cut education and a near total loss of critical and independent thinking. If you can not read the fine print or zoom in here are some examples of 8th grade level testing in 1912. Define the following terms of government: Democracy, Limited Monarchy, Absolute Monarchy, Republic. Give Examples of Each. To what four governments are students in school subjected?

2012: … MUST READ …

This is a collection of my some of my writings that I have compiled in order that people might be able to learn in more depth about information that DC is wrongly keeping secret from you, but that you must learn about. I do believe they have it mislabeled “CLASSIFIED”. In the past I have spoken on numerous occasions with both Secret Service and FBI agents and they have told me that this information is the truth. I have a Summa Cum Laude BA with two majors, psy. and soc., and a minor in social work. I have researched this matter in depth and to the best of my knowledge the following information is correct. I am in the process of working on a much more organized web page, but I care to publish this information now as I need it for people to read immediately. I do believe […] Read More

Will the Ark of the Covenant Ever be Found?

The Ark of the Covenant is a great mystery. What was it and where did it go? Throughout history there have been many rumors and theories as to what happened to the Ark. The beginning of the story seems to be in the bible starting with Moses (although there are theories that it all started before that with other magic or sacred “Arks” originating in Egypt). It is explained that God told Moses to build the Ark of the Covenant and was very specific with the design. It is thought to be gold with angels on either side facing each other, like they are watching over the contents. There are dimensions and some specifics given in the biblical account and many paintings and images of what it would have looked like, but it is hard to know for sure. It is believed by some that the Ark contains only […] Read More

Unvoiced Testimony: Visitors in the Dawn Times?

Scott Corrales The branch of UFO research which could rightly deserve the appellation of “paleoufology” constituted a controversial field of investigation during the 1970’s, when authors like Otto Binder (Unsolved Mysteries of the Past), Richard E. Mooney (Gods of Air and Darkness), and Erich Von Daniken (Chariots of the Gods?) wrote extensively on human/alien interaction at the dawn of recorded history and even earlier. Proof of the existence of “gods” or “ancient astronauts” could be found everywhere, and to judge by the conclusions found in the books of the time, it seemed that every major engineering project in antiquity had been “farmed out” to alien contractors! Paleoufology lost its appeal and languished in obscurity until the works of Zechariah Sitchin thrust it once again into prominence. Clearly, there is still a great deal to learn about this aspect of the phenomenon. Guatemalan researcher Oscar Rafael Padilla, an attorney and […] Read More

1969: TEMPUS INTERLUDIUM

The Magnum Opus of Dr. Ernest L. Norman AMID THE PYRAMIDS October 7, 1969 — During the last hundred years or so, peoples of the western hemisphere have been tremendously interested and intrigued by the lore of Ancient Egypt, as it was unearthed and apparently translated by the efforts of archaeologists. By far, however, the most important aspects in this Egyptology have not been recognized and, in particular, the significance of certain connections which this Egyptology had, in a historical sense, with the much older and long-ago defunct civilization of Atlantis. In particular, the Egyptian pyramids, a subject of great mystery and intense controversy, even to the exploration of the giant pyramid of Gizeh (Pyramid of Khufu or Cheops at Gizeh) with cosmic ray apparatus in an attempt to divulge certain supposed unknown inner chambers. Like almost all other earth world ethnic cultures, religions, occultisms and even superstitions, the […] Read More

World’s Before Our Own

What happens when unique skeletal and cultural evidence from a prehistoric world appear long before they should — and in places where they should not…? Brad Steiger asks. It is rather amazing that such sophisticated people, as we judge ourselves to be, do not even know who we are. And it becomes rather dismaying to discover that there is a great deal of suppressed, ignored, and misplaced pre-historical cultural evidence that would alter the established interpretations of human origins and provide us with a much clearer definition of what it means to be human. Archaeologists, anthropologists, and various academicians who play the “origins of Man” game, reluctantly and only occasionally acknowledge instances where unique skeletal and cultural evidence from the prehistoric record suddenly appear long before they should — and in places where they should not. These irritating artefacts destroy the orderly evolutionary line that academia has for so […] Read More
