After reading all this, I am reminded of a scene from the Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy BBC Mini-series which talks about faith and proof of God's existance. It goes something like this: The Babel Fish is small, yellow, leech-like and probably the oddest thing in the universe. It feeds on brainwave energy, absorbing all unconscious frequencies and then excreting telepathically a matrix formed

Hi Gang, A friend and I are having a debate about "religious truth" on another board. Mike is a Catholic Priest and says he respects all other religions as expressions of divine truth, but that only the Christian faith is an expression of the entire divine truth. My view is that there is a higher power out there and different faiths are simply different ways of relating to the same t

I don't know if it could be called a "sense of belonging" somewhere else with me, as much as a sense of something fundamentally wrong with the world I live in. Ever since I was in high school I've had the distinct feeling that I've been lied to about the history of the world and how things came to be the way they are. Facts didn't seem to compleatly support the explanation I was given b

I remember hearing this story on a PBS story-telling show years ago when I was about 4 or 5 years old. I remember there was a lady who did chalk drawings to illustrate story as this guy with glasses who played the guitar narrated it. I always loved stories that could give me the shivers, still do. Unfortunetly I haven't run across many that can anymore. The Legend Of Boggy Creek is one that giv

Hi Gang, Yes, it's been awhile since I posted anything....again. And life has gotten hectic....again. But I thought I'd drop in with some thoughts I was having. I just recently turned 30 on Sept. 18th, and as a treat, I got myself a copy of the video game Uru:Ages Beyond Myst. I've been having lots of fun with it, even after beating the game itself. I'm finding that just looking around and ma

One of my favorite books, The Story of B by Daniel Quinn, talks a little about the exponential growth of the human population. Starting on page 258, the section entitled The Boiling Frog, talks about population growth and the things that affect it. Aside from natural disasters, I'm wondering if you've taken into account the effect food availability has on a population? In November 1998 Daniel Qu

Hi Gang, Just got down watching Graham on Discovery Science tonight talking about Yonaguni and it's possible connection to the Jomon people of ancient japan. I was struck by the reconstructed Jomon village shown on the program and how much the buildings reminded me of a typical celtic round house. Does anyone know if the form of the building was worked out from artifact evidence on the site or

As I remember, Graham mentions in his documentary "Search for the Lost Civilization" that when the sphinx was first thought to be built, Taurus rose in line with it's gaze. While in 10,500 bc, it is Leo that rises in line with the sphinx's gaze. 10,500 bc is a reoccuring date in Graham's research, and not just in Egypt. The angle of alignment of the 3 pyramids we take to represent Orio

.... I know I'm having a ball watching all of you debate back and forth. I just thought I'd point out a few little tidbits that I remember. King's Chamber: Yes, it's got what we assume to be a sarcophagus. However, no mummy was found in it. Was Khufu ever there? Or was the tomb robbed before it was sealed? Was the King's Chamber a decoy to frutrate would-be grave robbers? I've always wondered th

So does anyone else find it weird or encouraging that such maverick ideas like the re-dating of the Sphinx or that the Mayan, Egyptian, Easter Islanders, the people who built stonehenge, the Minoans, the builders of Ankor Wat and possible other ancient civilizations might've been connected are showing up in popular culture like my video game? What truely exciting times we are living in. Actually

Hi Gang, I picked up a copy of the game "The Riddle Of The Sphinx" on the sale rack at Office Max last week. The first thing to catch my attention was in the opening screens the programers make a big deal about Dr. Robert Schock's re-dating of the Sphinx to 10,500 BCE. That date, of course, will catch the eye of anyone following Graham's work. There is also a re-occuring thread thro

Ok, now THAT is a rather cool link between the two. It all looks very convincing to me. If I remember right, this is suppose to lead those who can follow the signs to the lost treasure of the Templars. So where does all this evidence point us to in Egypt if we've gotten the interpreations correct? Sage

Pretty cool, I have to admit. The only thought that comes to mind for me, though, is that the pentagram has been around as a symbol for ages. Many people have argued that it's been around forever, appearing in nature in various forms. Example, cut an apple horizontally and the seeds will form a five point star, surrounded by the "circle" of the apple. Perhaps if the theory that the pent

I have in my library a book called "Stone Circles: A Modern Builders Guide To The Megalithic Revival" by Rob Roy. In this book Roy interviews many people who have built their own Megaliths using primitive technology. One of them is a heavy lift engineer who showed that by simply offsetting the fulcrum point by 6 inches or so, even an 80 lb boy could lift a 2.5 ton cap stone, and through

Well Rob, It seems we're never going to see eye to eye on this. So I'm just gonna drop it before I get really pissed off. I don't really expect you to understand, because to me this is not about George W. Bush lieing to people. What this is about to me is the blatant intrusion into the private lives of people practicing their beliefs. This is about someone saying it's ok for anyone to pry into

Belive it or not, I agree completely that such things should be out in the open. And in a perfect world where no one judged one another for their beliefs, I'm sure it would be. But if there is one thing that history has taught us, it's that more often than not people fear what they don't understand and they destroy what they fear. I would love to see W. doing this out in the open, but realisticly
