The American military officer who allegedly touched the UFO craft in Rendlesham Forest, UK, in the grounds of a US airbase, claimed to have received a string of binary code. When it was decoded many years later, it gave co-ordinates that identify the sunken lass mass of Hy Brasil. Spooky! :)

Hi Audrey I clicked on the link you provided to the Library of Congress and then selected various newspaper articles at random. Each of the articles I read is simply a re-working of the other: the same information regurgitated in the same order, almost verbatim in each case It provides irrefutable evidence of one thing ... that journalism was as sloppy and as lazy almost one hundred years ago

Hi Audrey / T Bird For what reasons do you think that this dozen or so specimens of "giants" would not be displayed in museums?

Audrey, I agree that there were giant trees, mammals and even giant dinosaurs. The only difference is that there are museums in cities on every continent of the Earth filled with such exhibits while there is scarcely any evidence to substantiate TBird's belief in a "race" of giants. Humankind would be uncovering their remains as they have the remains of fossilised trees, woolly mammot

With reference to this "race of giants with elongated skulls" one would expect skulls to proliferate in museums all over the world or in museums on certain continents and yet they do not. If you believe that they were indeed a "race" then how do you account for the fact that comparatively so few skeletons with elongated skulls have ever been discovered? :)

Temple cites an utterance from a pyramid text: 372: Horus takes him to his side, he purifies this Unas in the Jackal-lake (S zAb) to suggest that the Sphinx was formerly carved in the likeness of Anubis, the Jackal-headed god, coupled with a proposal that the sphinx was surrounded by water. Hence the 'Jackal Lake' in Unas' PT is imbibed with a new meaning. I am sure it will have been discussed

Hi Rick What is certainly convincing is that mythology was a way of communicating and preserving information through countless generations and if it can be identified so readily in some myths, then surely it is worth considering in others. Take, by way of example, the translation by Frank Cole Babbit of classical historian Plutarch's "Isis and Osiris" who writes: "The Egyptians

In the Jewish mysticism of Kabbalah, there are 72 sacred names for God in the Zohar. A coincidence or does it lend weight to the idea of classical myth and literature being encoded with astronomical information?

a synonym for 'climax' is 'culmination' or 'zenith', both of which have cosmological connotations. Just an idea :)

I don't know for sure but looks like a plinth for a standing statue, as in the example shown in the link: For some reason, I have a vague recollection of seeing an artist's impression of the sphinx with such a statue standing between the paws - think it was in either 'Fingerprints of the Gods' or 'The Keeper of Genesis', neither of which I have to hand. :)

So, what you're not saying - but everyone who cares to read is hearing loud and clear - is that no-one in the academic community has lent their support to your theory and that a career spanning 13 years as a systems analyst using "both sides of your brain" is what qualifies you to adopt such a condescending tone to other members of the forum? I asked you two questions, suggesting my in

Still no answer ... there are no credentials other than the comment you were a "career systems analyst for 15 years so I know how to use both sides of my brain." I stand corrected. LOL

Drop the arrogant, pompous tone why don't ya. I didn't realise I had to have "credentials" to read your post and ask questions which seemed reasonable. However, what I expected even less was the condescending tone you adopted in your response. Manners cost nothing. Once again: please state your "credentials" and those in the academic community who have offered testimonials

Danny I have never claimed to have any credibility in this field ... I simply asked you some questions and then, when you summarily dismissed others who asked you to expound your thinking stating that we have "no credibility" I simply asked you to wear your learning on your sleeve so we could bow to your greatness. I'm guessing you have no "credentials" and have not courted

Danny You say that none of us "have any credibility" and then ask "why I should I listen to you?" Can you please share with us your credentials and academic testimonials to illustrate your 'credibility' and perhaps be so courteous as to explain why any of us lesser mortals should consider your "theory" to be remotely credible. Which credible academics have applaud

What do you suppose them to be paintings of? Given that El Greco was a Greek and one of his disciples painted the frescoes in the monasteries of Meteora which are perched precariously on the tops of cliffs which seem as insurmountable as those in El Greco's paintings, I'd always supposed they were inspired by the monasteries at Meteora and were not surrealist in the sense of the artistic traditi

How rude. There is nothing further to say. I should perhaps have taken Gandhi's advice: "First they ignore you." Instead, I had the decency to ask you a couple of questions and you respond in such a personal, negative way. You evidently missed the point where I wrote that I found your work "interesting, different and new", in my last post. Never mind. Oh ... and welcome

Hi Danny I do not possess, nor do I wish to possess, a FaceAche account so I am unable to access your FaceAche page However, I have read with interest the links you provide, noting for example that much of what you include in your post is lifted verbatim from the webiste link you then offer, as though for 'further reading'; see the 'mirador' weblink as one example of this.

Hi Danny The Maya could only the Messier 42 'Orion' Nebula with the naked eye, though, and as I stated in my last post its nebulosity might appear only as "fuzzy" or like a wisp of smoke; there was no high definition, colour contrasting technology available to the Ancients such as the photographic images as taken with modern lens technology which you have posted in support of your hypo

Hi Danny I have read a couple of your posts on this idea now and have a couple of questions: 1: While the Orion Nebula is visible to the naked eye, its nebulosity appears as "fuzzy" for want of a better adjective. It is certainly not visible to the naked eye with the clarity or heavily contrasted photo-editing software that you need to use in order to support your ideas. Therefore, ho

Hi Sam An interesting idea about a single language spoken in many ways but why do you presume it broke down due to its 'complexity' ? Language evolves to accommodate and reflect social and cultural changes rather than 'breaks down', doesn't it? However, the date you suggest of 2000 BCE for the 'breakdown' of this system is perhaps too late as 'Archaic' Sumerian and Akkadian language records ex

To be fair, Eddie, they are busy building that wall themselves. Walls don't just keep people in ... they keep people out. Such a shame that people are building walls rather than resolving their differences, if you ask me. :)

To be fair, I think the photographic image you have presented as bearing a similarity to the Great Sphinx is most disappointingly dissimilar. In fact, the pharaonic Queen Hapshetsut - also renowned for an extensive building programme in Egypt and who ruled Egypt earlier than Ramses II - has many warrior sphinx statues that are far more similar in style to the Great Sphinx than the one you posted

Hi Neither - it is commonly referred to as either the 'Dream Stele' or the 'Sphinx stele' and it was erected circa 1400 BC by pharaoh Tuthmose IV. The upper lunette shows Tuthmose on the right and left making offerings to the Great Sphinx. :)

Hi When you state that humans can be categorised by one of THREE different blood groups, the blood group system to which you are referring - classifying groups as A, B or O - you are mistaken as there are actually FOUR groups in this classification system: A, B, AB and O. However, this is only one of thirty classification systems in current usage as recognised by the International Society for B

Yeah, I read it. I find myself in the camp believing that they have extracted DNA. 10 spikes on paternal DNA is considered enough for modern day paternity test identification of the biological father. There were 10 perfectly matched paternal DNA 'spikes' when Akhenaten's and Tutankhamen's mummies were tested. That's proof enough for me. You don't really think they were NOT human, do you? That
