Don . I'd be very grateful to learn exactly how your research of the word "Halloween" led you to your deductions/revelation as to its origins/ meaning, including verified sources, please Regards G.

Hi All Atlantis is not proven, nor found, nor surmised. Atlantis is a place referred to by Plato. Antartica is a frozen continent. Now then. I see , every night, the stars up in the sky. I could say that I believe that they are the gods, with one supreme being, the Sun. Now what does that mean ?? Am I dreaming, fantasising, could I see Ley Lines between the stars ? Could I say my pray

Dear all From recent posts on this and other mbs, plus articles in the media etc. , it appears that the debate between established scientists & scholars and the "alternative" thinkers such as GH is hotting up. Perhaps the establishment, or "orthos" , patently resent any supposition which isn't borne from their own labours and research :- Labours and research which they j

Hi everyone. Please take a close look at the following Message Board / Forum :- I'm not endorsing this website in particular, but it certainly has a highly organised and well moderated message board ( referred to as "Discussion Forum" ).

Sphinx I'm certainly not intending to make a mockery of any one . If that's your view or interpretation , you are entitled to it, but please bear in mind that my original theme in this post is that the orthodox bunch seem to be highly intolerant of people like GH . As for sand, well, here is a snippet from a poem of mine, :- The sea drew breath from the clean shore And the

Name calling is not something used lightly. Usually it is an emotional response to something said against a particular view or opinion that has caused hurt and offence , and has been deemed by the offended party to have been deliberately meant as such, (whether or not such may be the case ) . The ongoing debates on this board about the Mysteries etc. suffer when posters' views and opinions are q

OK Folks ! Let's face it - the scientific community do things their way, while the likes of GH do things another way. Each is entitled to their own views, theories and conclusions. What is , however, a clear distinction between GH and his critics is the fact that GH does NOT go out of his way to launch petty, griping and personal attacks on "the other side" . But, on the other h

Pete Phrases in the review in question, such as ". Anything is grist to Hancock's face-saving mill " and "Sad though this stuff is " do not, in my opinion, constitute a balanced, even handed summary. As to your point about theories being sold to " the naive general public, ready to accept anything dramatic and exciting. " , surely you could have the grace to admi

Pete I object to the way that the Review dismisses Mr Hancock's work . The language used is arrogant, high handed - and is penned by someone who has written a book of his own theories about early origins etc. Hardly a subjective review, hmmm ?? And my "hero", as you so tartly remark, at least had the guts to admit he Has been wrong in the past. And at least he also has had the guts

Hi all !! The Underworld Review by Peter James on The New Scientist's Web site :- is derisive, dismissive and very personal. A typical response by the scientific community, overlooking GH's tireless 5 years of work on this book, his humility in his admission of earlier mistakes ( in common with most researchers ), and his inspired conviction in what he is doing. Incidentally, I do believe t

Thanks Damien I just don't have the time to suss out the html code to paste in such links etc. You're a self confessed stickler for detail - surely, therefore, there must be many orthodox stories from our collective past which you find unsatisfactory in the detail they lack. Eg., the "Missing Link" , the supposed origins of human habitation of the Americas via the Bering Straights, th

I would recommend that everyone looks at the following URL :- This gives an insight into the sunken port of Caesarea in Israel. 2,000 years ago this harbour was probably the most modern in the world, built by King Herod with Roman cementing technology. No one is really quite sure why the harbour of Caesarea sunk beneath the waves, but it is an indicator of how relatively recently the sea ha

To any interested :- I came across the following during my web journies. Interesting surmises and theories, but most of it seems to be based on " If" and "maybe" and "could be " etc. Has anyone on this MB actually visited this thought/theory provoking church to see for themselves ? Best Regards G.

Hah ! "The Devil Is In The Detail !" We go from purportedly prehistoric nuclear detonations in the Northern Hemisphere to ancient Indian mythological hints of splitting the atom in some distant past strife between the gods various - in a blink of the mind's eye.

Dear Jorge I quote you " The better we understand our past, the better we understand ourselves and others ...... " How well you put that. And how well you have laid out your thinking.

Hi All I guess we all have our beliefs and also dismissive opinions about those things we do Not believe in. Fair enough. The Bible causes controversy, disbelief, anger, wonder, peace of mind & heart, and joy - depending on what or who you believe in when you read it. The main reason why the Gnostic gospels were not included in the main New Testament by the various early church councils

Doc . Firstly :- Quote:- (Earth Harvest) > The Importance of the Trinity Understanding the Trinity is of vital importance. The Scriptures teach that there is one God who has revealed Himself in three persons. The three persons of the trinity are the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.The following verses clearly state there is only one God: "There is one God" (I Timothy 2:5, K

Hi to any one who cares to pause to read this. And no doubt, what I am declaring will cause intellectual anger amongst some of you, but I have just as much a right to say here what I believe as does anyone else. However, before any one supposes otherwise, I am certainly no fundamentalist - I simply believe in trusting God to guide my understanding of the many baffling and seemingly contradictory

This reference I found via Google :- Moore traces Dionysus’s cult far beyond the Greeks and describes the Dionysiac architects as a ‘secret fraternity of Dionysus cultists originating in 1,000 BC who worked in Solomon’s Temple, eventually becoming the Middle Ages’ Travelling Masonic Guilds. Their ingenious constructions merely symbolised their greater work: the Temple of Civilisation, chiselling

Perhaps I should have made myself clearer and less assumptive that you would understand the angle I was approaching from in my response to your intriguing, informative and very well constructed Post.

Hi Milo Yes, indeed Love is the greatest of them all, as it is written. I get the impression that your approach to the Bible is mainly from a secular, rather than from a religious, view point. Correct me if I'm wrong. Certainly, in answer to your question, I have not read all of the Bible from end to end. I do not claim to be a clever scholar, nor an academic. But I would say that the Bible
