That’s OK. I just wouldn’t ’t want anyone to get the idea that I have any great competency in mathematics, because I don’t. My paper simply tries to show a past that may be reflected in the present. Nothing more ...

Hi, Dave. I don’t recall saying any part of that first quoted paragraph. My paper does not talk about cup marks or Thom. Best, Jeff

Thanks, Dave. I have found a more-detailed accounting of the Herald's letter-to-the-editor writer's theory. It is Orpbit's post, which is eight or nine posts down at the following link ... Best, Jeff

Press and internet coverage by The Glasgow Herald, The Scotsman, The Daily Grail, Coast-to-Coast AM, Twitter Tweets, and Atlas Obscura have accounted for an astonishing 4,251 reads of my research paper over the last two weeks. Perhaps if I had somehow associated Scotland's mysterious Carved Stone Balls with the Egyptian Dixon Relics, at least in the headline, there might have been a few reads fr

Thanks for posting that link to my article, Michael, and looking forward to your book, Laird. In my 2009 follow-up to that article, I do say something that might better resonate with the timeline of your theory. In it, I say this: "Could it be that the Great Pyramid, thought by some to be built by the survivors of the cataclysm that destroyed Atlantis, built the GP where they did in o

I have just uploaded a PDF of my article, "The Mystery of Calcot Park: The Fifth Earl of Rosslyn and the Dogs of War," to my Academia page. The article originally ran in the July 2016 issue of "The Heretic" magazine (#10), and is dedicated to my Grand Uncle Jimmie Nisbet, who was killed 100 years earlier, on 1 July 1916, the first day of combat at the four-month-long Battle of

Adriano published my Battle of Bannockburn piece back in 2004, linked above, in his Graal magazine. He has since published four other of my articles in his Hera and Fenix magazines, with my Joan of Arc piece running in the current Fenix. He is a great editor, and his brother does a remarkable job with the layout. Quality products, all. Best, Jeff

As you can now see, any post by me is pretty much a death blow to conversations on this forum. My own initial post about a date as significant as the 600th birthday of a person as historically important as Joan of Arc, as you will see if you look below, has been completely ignored. Must be mostly guys here. Best, Jeff

There's a zero-response post a ways down the Mysteries list about Joan of Arc's recent 600th birthday. It references my article, "Joan of Arc Revealed," and there is a section in it that talks about the Bacon/Shakespeare controversy. It also mention's Bacon's speculated editorship of the King James Bible. I won't ruin my post's obviously dismal (even for me) level of interest by send
