This reminds me of the imaginary Tutankhamun tomb chambers. All hype no reality. What's frustrating is that the archaeologists doing real work and discovering real new information day-in-day-out are getting no coverage in the papers, while this kid goes global. The kid will also now have to live with his balloon being popped very publicly. The professionals who allowed this to happen need

Half a decade on they are still pumping 400 tons of water out of the ground every day and putting it into permanent storage in giant containers spread across the site. Finally though, this giant ice wall almost 1 mile in length could start to reduce the ground water seeping into the contaminated site every day: I wonder if Pete is still on GHMB? What's more, we were lucky it wasn't much

Japan's TEPCO admit they should have declared the world's second worst nuclear disaster more quickly instead of covering it up.

Massive and long awaited news finally today from Israel. Oded Golem NOT guilty of forging Saint James, Brother of Jesus ossuary. This confirms the majority view of archaeologists and scientists that this ossuary, this bone box, is authentic, and is the ossuary of the brother of the real historical Jesus. I have been arguing for this for probably 5 years now when the scientific and historical data

Hi Livio. The Baylonians were very good on number theory, but I disagree that when it came to geometry they were as good as the Egyptians. This general 'factoid' has, IMO, arisen from the works of Otto Neugebauer, who started his work translating Babylonian cunnieform mathematical tablets. I don't think he ever lost his bias against Egyptian mathematical achievements, and some of his comment

Well the basic design factor for screen proportions is by no means random. As usual there is underlying logic that may not at first be apparent. A screen of 640x480 lines has a proportion ratio of 1.3333etc:1 This will influence the overall dimensions of the finished product. Dave L

Ok, I'm not too up on the details... But the basic idea is that the expansion of the universe is slowing down too quickly according to current models? Dave L

Another question. Dark Matter sounds to me like the biggest ever fudge factor. How can a theory, in which something like 60% of the energy in your model is empirically not detected be taken seriously by the scientific community? Dave L

Hello Mario. I have seen many theories which propose the golden ratio being used in architectural designs from Greece to the Rennaisance. Do you agree with this, and if so, what are the most convincing/interesting examples? I have studied Egyptian mathematics and architecture in some depth, however I do not think that this ratio was important to them. It may have been of interest to the Baby

Hi Greg. I think this is a subject I will skip thanks. Some of the pages associated with this are obviously hate speach. In fact one of them was full of just about the most divisive diatribes I've ever read, and that's not bad going for the net!. Sounds too similar to the infamous non-existent Protocols of Zion etc. "It's one of those difficult topics where you never really can seem to

"Austin: There is no such thing as the Extreme Oath of Induction. This is a myth perpetuated by extremely anti-Catholic groups for more than 150 years. When a Jesuit professes his vows, he promises chastity, poverty, and obedience to his superiors, including the Holy Father. You will find the vow printed in the Constitutions of the Society of Jesus, a text you can obtain through the Institut

FBi was a stupid mistake, I mant whatever international intelligence agency was in place in the early years of the US. However, if the Jesuit oath survivied into these periods then it sounds just a tad more extreme.... Dave L

Hi Greg, you sound like you are well versed already in these things, so I might just buy your book:) Note also the big hooha the French sent up when the Italians & Polish wanted Christianity put into the Euro constitution. These ideals are still important, and i tend to agree with them. RE the Jesuits, they were like any other sect of the time, and even similar to KGB, FBI, Mi6 in their wa

Hi Kim, Masons are by no means generally Christians. There are masons all over the world. They are required to believe in some higher power though I believe, and in that way they are Deists. Dave L

Egyptian mathematics and geography mostly. They were probably not journal standard at the time, and I've re-written them almost entirely, but AFAIC the conclusions are still correct, although the supporting data wasn't really solid at the time. I'll get there eventually though. Cheers. Dave L

Hi Jim, I did some work on Madrid recently. There is nothing less than an entire original Egyptian temple of Isis in the middle of Madrid: I am not sure about orientation etc, but it faces roughly E/NE Cheers. Dave L

Hi Greg, I am also well convinced of your article's validity. It's interesting that the image is interpreted as a hunter in the sky. This may be an idea that is much older than recorded history. I remember reading it a long time back and have referenced it a few times in discussions I think. Anyway, when I was in Luxor I was amused to drive past large photos of Mubarak in the middle of the

Yes, that's your way of looking at the situation in a way you regard as 'the truth'. Another way to look at the wider context is to take experiences from WW2 into consideration, where we can see that people who justified killing or did not question the morals of what they were doing decended into the immorality of the Nazi Era. 'Just Obeying Orders' will have a new meaning for evermore. Someti
