Jordan of the Smithsonian.

10/02/2003 Update On Deep Water Megalithic Stones and Structures Near Western Cuba

Back in 2000, Paulina Zelitsky had been contracted to take ocean current temperatures at various depths for a global warming study and was working in the waters northeast of Cabo San Antonio offshore from the Guanacahabibes Peninsula. That peninsula is geologically anomalous compared to the rest of Cuba and geologists think it originated from the continental margin of the Yucatan Peninsula. Both have lots of porous limestone mixed with bentonite clay and extremely fine sand. What stunned Paulina about the unexpected structures on the sea floor were the 90 degree angles and regular spacing of large objects as deep as 2200 feet.

Two Australian scientists believe they have found evidence of a parallel universe of strange matter within our own Solar System. 

03/05/2003 Stonehenge Built as Female Symbol?

The reason Stonehenge was built 4,800 years ago remains mysterious. Archeologists have speculated that it was a place of worship or an early calendar. But a gynecologist thinks its design may be based on female genitalia. Gynecologist Anthony Perks first got the idea after noticing how the inner stones are arranged more in an egg-shaped pattern than a true circle. When he compared the layout with the shape of female sexual organs, he found surprising parallels.

03/05/2003 New Orleans Sinking Fast

We read about Venice sinking into the sea, but New Orleans is sinking right here at home. Most of North America is built on bedrock, but New Orleans is built on Mississippi River silt, which is settling, due to gravity. This settling has been going on for a long time, but lately the surface has been dropping fast.

01/26/2003 Top 10 Out-Of-Place Artifacts

Walk into any modern museum, or open any history textbook, and the picture of the past presented is one in which humanity started from primitive beginnings, and steadily progressed upward in the development of culture and science. Most of the artifacts preserved in archaeological and geological records have been neatly arranged to fit this accepted linear view of our past.

Yet many other tantalizing bits and pieces unearthed offer a very different story of what really happened. Called out-of-place artifacts, they don't fit the established pattern of prehistory, pointing back instead to the existence of advanced civilizations before any of the known ancient cultures came into being.

01/23/2003 Four-winged dinos from China

Recently discovered fossils of feathered dinosaurs with four wings are raising new questions about the origins of flight. The turkey-sized creatures probably lived in the trees about 130 million years ago and used their wings and long tail to glide from branch-to-branch.

The oldest image of a star pattern, that of the famous constellation of Orion, has been recognized on an ivory tablet some 32,500 years old.

01/20/2003 Earth’s capture of the moon circa 2000 BC

How Earth gained such a large moon is still one of the great unsolved mysteries of our time. I propose past planetary chaos involving Earth, Mars and Venus resulted in the capture of the moon in orbit around the Earth circa 2000 BC. This chaotic ‘capture’ of the moon paralleling a “Dark Age” as proposed by archaeologists.

01/17/2003 Magnets Can Change Your Mind

Unexplained magnetized objects have been removed from the bodies of close encounter witnesses by Dr. Roger Leir. Now we know that magnetism can be used to alter the mind, so maybe we're not far from understanding what the implants are doing inside abductees. It's also possible that the reversal of magnetism between the north and south poles, which is on the way, could affect the way our brains work — the same way it seems to be affecting migrating animals.

01/01/2003 Living Underwater

Life, say the experts, began in the sea. And if the way we spend our vacations is an accurate indicator, there are few things we enjoy more than revisiting our submerged roots. Cavorting with dolphins, badgering sharks from the safety of steel cages and photographing exotic fish through the portholes of tourist submarines fascinates landlubbers from Prague to Peoria. For those who find these forays into Neptune's realm too brief, Italian naval architect Giancarlo Zema has the perfect dream home, the Trilobis 65. Part yacht and part submarine, it could convince Capt. Nemo to hang a "for sale" sign on the Nautilus.

12/29/2002 City At Sea

Norman L. Nixon loves to talk about the enormity of it all. "Walk in a straight line for about 12 minutes," he says. "If you don't dawdle, you'll cover slightly less than a mile. Now, make a right turn and walk beyond the length of two football fields. Duplicate these lines to make a rectangle, then look up to the height of a 25-story building. This is what Freedom will be." Listening to him talk about it, you begin to understand why Nixon doesn't refer to Freedom Ship as the world's largest vessel, but the world's first floating city.

12/27/2002 A new exhibit on Albert Einstein dissects his slippery science

Science exhibits don't often come with a warning sign. But there's one at the entrance to a sprawling, new exhibit on Albert Einstein's life and science at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The sign has no words. It's a video screen whose center is dominated by a dark blob. Around the blob yawn strangely bloated, bowed, stretched, and sometimes doubled images of museum visitors. That's how they might appear if light from them were distorted by a black hole — an unimaginably dense package of matter whose existence follows from Einstein's theories.

12/15/2002 Tiahuanacu, ancient seaport 12,500 feet above sea level

As an amateur mesoamerican history buff, I have always wanted to see Tiahuanacu, an ancient city perched high in the Andes above La Paz, Bolivia — the remains of a civilization predating the Incas which may be over 17,000 years old.

12/13/2002 More Signs That Solar System Has Tenth Planet

The solar system may have a tenth planet lurking beyond the orbit of Pluto, calculations by astronomers in Britain and Argentina indicate. "Planet X" could lie 60 times further from the Sun than the Earth, roughly 600 million miles out. But nobody would have spotted it directly because, if it exists, it orbits in a direction that astronomers rarely study.

12/11/2002 Evolution of Crop Patterns Near Britain's Chilbolton Radio Telescope Observatory, 1999 - 2002

As I have investigated and reported about crop formations since 1991, I began to wonder if the patterns were connected over arcs of time at the same geographic locations. One example of what seems to be patterns related to each other year after year occurred near the Chilbolton Radio Telescope Observatory between June 1999 and August 2002.

12/04/2002 Man Prepares to Ascend Vertically into Space in Own Rocket

11/10/2002 Green Flash from the Sun

Many think it is just a myth. Others think it is true but its cause isn't known. Adventurers pride themselves on having seen it. It's a green flash from the Sun. The truth is the green flash does exist and its cause is well understood.

11/08/2002

Possible Pole-Shift Precursor Found!

The Hutton Commentaries (THC) has been saying from the beginning that a shift in the poles of Earth’s rotational axis can only be caused by a significant shift of mass somewhere within our planet. Now, two scientists studying data on Earth’s gravity field have found evidence of just such a mass shift that began in 1998.

02/15/2001 Time Zero for Earth

Gregg Braden is currently traveling around the United States and in the media, telling of the scientific proof of the Earth passing through the Photon Belt and the slowing of the Earths rotation. At the same time there is an increase in the resonant frequency of the Earth (Schumann Resonance). When the Earth stops its rotation and the resonance frequency reaches 13 cycles we will beat a zero point magnetic field. The Earth will be stopped, and in 2 or 3 days it will start turning again in the opposite direction. This will produce a reversal in the magnetic fields around the earth and so forth.

02/15/2001   DNA and Cellular Changes

Everyone has one double helix of DNA. What we are finding is that there are other helixes that are being formed. In the double helix there are two strands of DNA coiled into a spiral. It is my understanding that we will be developing twelve helixes. During this time, which seems to have started maybe 5 to 20 years ago, we have been mutating. This is the scientific explanation. It is a mutation of our species into something for which the end result is not yet known.
