Apocalypse or Paradise? History Unveiled

Apocalypse or Paradise?
History Unveiled – Odd Gods for Sod Bods

The snake venom bursts through my bloodstream and floods my brain with psychedelic visions and death-trip memories and projections. My resourceful body attempts to integrate the primordial serpent proteins into the trance-substantial substance of its standing wave.


Unaware of the snakebite affecting my body and consciousness, O’Grady nonetheless ‘coincidentally’ attempts to make up the difference in psychic potential by consuming a small handful of dried blue meanies – an extraordinary synchrony of expanded consciousness during the extended moment of the new moon’s voided momentum.

He and Molki sit in the wooden Pentagon and the words circulate between us as I ride out the easily distanced waves of pain and desperate cogitation as the peak of the toxic rush approaches. This Hermetic Hermit is glad of the release that comes with uncorking the bottle of the genie dwelling within him, and words pour from my mouth in an almost unstoppable flood in the brilliant fluorescing darkness beneath the encircling canopy of stars.

“You have to view the solar system as an integrated whole – the Sun-disk is a positive pole of a system in which the planets are all negatively-charged capacitors, all inhabiting harmonic shells within the charged plasma of the ‘solar bubble’. The thin dielectric medium of so-called ‘empty space’ is becoming more highly charged – some believe that this rise in solar activity and background potential – in which the Earth, Mars and Jupiter can all be seen to be warming – is due to the return of the Sun’s companion, approaching through the solar bubble of the Sun’s vast atmosphere.

The increase in solar activity is expected to result in a surge that destroys all the satellites orbiting the Earth and cooks all the integrated circuits on the surface of the globe. No planes, no cars, no communications, no technology – no food in the supermarkets or water in the tap and only your feet to get you anywhere.”

            “When?”

            “Many expect the Great Ages to change when the so-called Mayan calendar ends on the Solstice in 2012 – but as the destructive vengeful Lord remarks in the old books – ‘No man may know the day of my coming – I come like a thief in the night.’ I’ve heard some women optimistically emphasise the word ‘man’ and perhaps miss the point entirely; or maybe not – Gaia has a long memory that can be tapped, and her insights are more trustworthy than the codified words of the priests of the Sky God.

But the ‘thief in the night’ reference pertains to a deity other than the Earth or the Sun – the Sun is the ‘good shepherd’ of all the gods and goddesses, the planets and moons and all who dwell on them. The thief in the night comes out of the darkness of the abyssal depths of the Great Water between the stars – an extremely elliptical companion to the Sun, accompanied by a wandering pack of unpredictable, eccentric rogues.
The companion is variously known as Planet X, Nibiru to the Sumerians, Marduk to the Babylonians, also known as Maldek, Nemesis or the ‘Tenth Planet’ – and often confused with another destructive wandering body.  All the planets are gods and goddesses, remember – including the ‘Lord’, the ‘high sky god’ of the Hebrews – who hasn’t manifested for quite some time.

            “That’s why the wiser teachers say ‘Don’t look forward to the Day of the Lord’, for that day is the day of doom and destruction, the end of the world as we know it.”

            “So ‘the Lord’ is a large planet that passes through the solar system? Why can’t we see it then?”

            “It’s a faint ‘brown dwarf’ star, and it’s pretty hard to see anything of that order of magnitude unless you’re looking right at it. It comes with a coterie of smaller orbiting bodies, moving in retrograde motion to the rest of the solar system; it’s closest approach approximates the orbital shell of the so-called ‘asteroid belt’.

            “Why ‘so-called’?”

            “Because there’s more than the one asteroid belt we were taught about in the schools of the last millennium, when science chose to believe that the solar system was stable and inherently safe; governed by Newtonian clockwork, nothing had changed substantially for at least three billion years. Everything had stabilised a long time ago and life on spaceship Earth was thought to be subject only to glacially slow change – not catastrophic bouts of sudden transformation resulting in a ‘new heaven and a new Earth’.

“Then the ‘string of pearls’ – a cometary chain that could have easily destroyed the Earth – hit Jupiter a decade ago and astronomers suddenly realised that the gas giants hadn’t already swept up all the debris we might encounter after all. We’re not sailing through an empty cosmos after all. Beyond Neptune for instance is another asteroid belt that contains lots of big stuff, far more material than the belt between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars – which contains only enough material to account for something far smaller than the Earth; only enough debris to make a moon or ‘dwarf’ planet; but it’s all actually debris from a past planetary collision.

“We were taught that most of the material in the solar system exists on the plane of the ecliptic – except for Pluto, whose unusual orbit is heavily inclined to the plane traversed by all the other familiar planets and the asteroid belt between Jupiter and Mars. Now Pluto is classed as a ‘dwarf’ planet, a possible escapee from Neptune or the ‘Nereid’ belt beyond Neptune – and there are many more bodies of similar size orbiting around the Sun outside the ecliptic, some on extremely elliptical paths that follow and inhabit high harmonics instead of circular paths.

“According to the Sumerian texts (as interpreted by Zachariah Sitchin), Pluto is actually an escaped satellite of ‘Planet X’. It’s widely recognised that something turned Uranus on its side and radically altered the orbits of Neptune’s moons; something of an order of ten times the mass of current-day Jupiter…”

“Bigger than a dwarf planet, then – as big as a dwarf star. How many of these dwarf planets are there?” Molki asks, patting her pregnant belly.
“The more we look, out off the well-examined plane of the ecliptic, the more we see. Have you heard how Pluto was discovered?”

“No.”

“Percival Lowell, the Astronomer Royal of Britain, noticed along with many others that something seemed to be perturbing the moons of the outer gas giants. He decided that they must be influenced by a large body and calculated where such a thing might be found.

“In the early 1930s Clyde Tombaugh duly swung the big British scope that way and exposed a couple of glass photographic plates – that showed a ‘wandering’ body in precisely the location Lowell had predicted. The field of the telescope’s view was a tiny, tiny segment of the sky and he found Pluto amazingly quickly. That’s why its old planetary symbol was ‘PL’ – it stood for ‘Percival Lowell’, not ‘Pluto’ – an interesting (and perhaps contrived) coincidence in itself. Pretty good science, huh?” Molki and O’Grady smile.

“The only problem was, Lowell’s calculations were reexamined in the 1960s – by which time we had a reasonable idea of Pluto’s actual size and location – and it was discovered that there was no way that something of that apparent mass could possibly be perturbing the outer moons of the gas giants.

“So did Tombaugh actually find Pluto by accident? Do you know what the odds are against that happening? For a start, something is undeniably perturbing the moons of the gas giants, after all. We’re left with at least a couple of interesting possibilities; either there’s something else out there, something big; or Pluto – which we’ve only been examining for a fraction of the time it takes to orbit the Sun – is a hell of a lot more massive than it should be.”

Molki leans forward. “So which is it?”

“Well the recent passages of our solar system-exploring satellites would have been expected to find major gravitic anomalies if Pluto had any; but maybe not. And Pluto failed to reach its perihelion – its closest approach to the Sun – at the predicted time a couple of decades back; but it did begin to swing out again a little later…

“Anyway, the real point is that the solar system has been traveling around the galaxy for a long, long time and it swims in and out of the galactic plane in a sine-wave. When we pass through the centre of the plane of the Milky Way we encounter a lot of crap, and larger things besides…”
“So this brown dwarf is coming back?”

“Maybe – but as the old babbling books also say, ‘My time has been foreshortened’ – which is to say that throughout the Great Ages recorded by the Maya and others, the cycles of return of the Great Slayer were regular and predictable; but during the last passage a close interaction with another body altered is orbit in unpredictable ways.”

“So it may miss us entirely?”

“The main danger to Earth is not the passage of Nemesis, but the piles of rock and metal and frozen fossilised biosphere that tumble toward us every time it passes through a debris field – through the asteroid belts or Oordt Cloud that surrounds the solar system. That’s what happened to the planet where the asteroid belt is now…”

“Hit by the brown dwarf?”

“The ancients say that the asteroid belt planet was actually struck by one of the orbiting companions of the elliptical dwarven star; the crust was torn from the planet and mingled with the shattered remnants of the satellite that struck it to form the asteroid belt and many of the comets. Some called that ancient unfortunate planet ‘Ichthus’, a gateway to the multiverse that glowed more brightly than any other star or planet in its day. It was the original Lucifer; it glowed in the night, self-illumined by amazing aurorae, and it was inhabited – a liquid planet whose fluids were held in semi-miraculous suspension, the Pearl of Great Price, a planetary crystal ball that was older than the solar system and a gateway to everywhere.

“It’s a very long story. This happened when the dinosaurs were blotted out, and the planet that resonated with the structure of the physical Third Eye in terrestrial organisms was shattered; the third eye shrank and slipped within, except in certain ‘living fossils’ like the Tuatara of New Zealand…”

“The asteroid belt is the other shattered intruding satellite, and the crust of the planet that was once there, you say – but what happened to the core?”

“The core wandered through the solar system in an extreme elliptical orbit for a long time, until it interacted with Jupiter and was thrown back into the plane of the ecliptic. It interacted repeatedly with the inner planets, tearing the biosphere off Mars in repeated passages and destroying each Earthly civilisation that arose in a roughly 7,000 year cycle. ‘Planet X’, the brown dwarf Nemesis, has a different cycle again. There was also a three and a half thousand year cycle that created lesser tides of destruction in a disharmonic resonance…”

“And where is the rogue core of the asteroid planet now?” O’Grady asks.

“Now it’s the planet with the most circular orbit of all, the brightest planet in the sky – Venus, with land tides of tens of feet, no stable crust, a sulphuric brimstone atmosphere, pools of molten metal and a surface temperature of 438 degrees Celsius -  that certainly can’t be accounted for by a ‘runaway greenhouse effect’! It unaccountably rotates in reverse direction to all the other planets and the unexpected velocity of its upper atmosphere shows signs of recent stabilisation. Just this week a scientist has published a report indicating that Venus must have been created in a large planetary impact – no mention of Immanuel Velikovsky, of course – he’s been virtually erased from history…”

“And it’s an interesting point that the word ‘Venus’ means ‘the one that arrives,” O’Grady points out. “Why would you call a planet ‘the one that arrives’?” I pin him between the parallel lances of my venom-blurred vision.
“I thought I as the only one who noticed that,” I say. “The simple and obvious fact that ‘Venus’ is Latin for ‘she who comes’ – or ‘he’ or ‘it’.”
“Ah,” O’Grady concedes, “I think it was you who mentioned it to me when I was here all those years ago.”

“Excellent memory.”

 http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4149/5032384893_6aabe8d51f_b.jpg

“So the cycle of destruction has ended?” Molki asks.

“Yes and no – the pathway once inhabited by proto-Venus – or  ‘Ichthus’, or ‘long-haired Lucifer’, the light-maker – is still accompanied by her handmaidens – large masses in the order of, say, Phobos and Deimos, the moons of Ares-Mars – which was pulled along in Venus’ train and for a time was very close to the Earth – as close as the Moon. It was inhabited as well, another long story…”

O’Grady takes a deep draw and asks his next question through a cloud of smoke. “So these rocks that are still flying around in Venus’ old orbit are dinosaur killers? Miles across?”

“Some – but most are smaller, and they aren’t all rocky. You see, the real point is that all the bods in the know are intending to ride out five years of potential planetary destruction in their underground arks and military bases and refuges – but they don’t know what’s going to happen. Maybe nothing will happen – or nothing they expect. The cycle that the old Illuminati guarded for millennia between catastrophes in their codices and coded religions has changed. Venus has only been in its current orbit for less than three thousand years. The rocks may miss us entirely and we’ll have to cope with not dying – which is a much more difficult scenario than planetary megadeath; it means we have to somehow clean up the mess and work out how not to suffocate in our own shit!

“Besides, as Ben Elton (the ‘son of the Elohim) points out, the very worst place to be at a time like that would be inside a sealed bunker or spaceship with a bunch of hideous militant power mongers and control freaks…”

“So nothing may happen after all?”

“That’s right – and whatever happens, we’ll be responsible for creating it because we really do create reality with our emotion-charged hopes and fears; life alters the apparently random odds of reality, and that’s all it takes for life to survive against the odds. If enough people can dream of a future then we’ll all get to have one – we’ll steer a course between the flying rocks, as we do every year.”

“Every year?”

“There plenty of near-misses with asteroids, as you know – and there are other ‘asteroid belts’ that the Earth passed through the edges of a couple of times a year – the so-called ‘Taurid streams’ for instance, vast loops of debris that our orbit takes us through repeatedly, that incidentally are thought to be the result of a collision in Earth’s orbit around 14,000 years ago, give or take; when the Earth tilted twenty degrees on its axis, at the end of the last ‘ice age’. It’s a miracle anyone survived at all…

But back to the Taurids; they contain asteroid-sized chunks that are continually reacting with other bodies in the streams, and many are continually outgassing like comets, so that their orbits are essentially unpredictable – random – and therefore easily affected by mass consciousness and will. You have to remember that most of our concepts are askew; the nature of the solar system and Sun is actually electrical and harmonic, not nuclear or gravitic…”

“So all the arseholes may bury themselves in their bunkers for nothing, then? What a joke!”

“Yes and no – as Ben Elton also points out, they aren’t relying on chance alone to wipe out the bulk of the human race and eliminate the competition – they intend to ensure that there are as few survivors as possible to meddle in their apocalyptic plans. That’s where plagues and certain advanced technologies come in; and they suspect that the increase in solar activity will result in flares that completely incapacitate all modern technology on the surface, but don’t believe that this will be a more than temporary change of state…”

“Shit.”

“They’re aiming for a planetary population of half a billion tops when they emerge onto the surface of the new Earth, under the new Heaven – you don’t really need any more slaves than that, after all. The bunkers are everywhere – most are remote, but many smaller ones are secreted right under the noses of city populations. If you have the special card – if you’re an indispensable doctor or nurse, say, or bureaucrat – you’ll get the call and a vehicle will pick you up if you can’t make your way to the assembly point when the phone call comes.

“Ask around and you’ll be able to find some people on the list who’ll talk to you about it – but of course, many won’t; they’re afraid of losing their seat on the ark, and ‘national security’ ensures that they will if they talk…”
“Loose lips sink ships…”

“Or bunkers. And they don’t want a whole pile of rats joining them when the fat lady sings and the Titanic’s about to go down. Remember the Cold War mentality prevalent when many of these bunkers were built? You were expected to take a rifle down with you into your backyard bunnyhole, to shoot any neighbours who tried to get in and survive along with you… as if a concrete-lined ditch would help in a thermonuclear explosion. Most of the old suburban backyard fallout shelters are probably granny flats by now, or growing rooms full of lights…”

“Yet be not afraid – the Good Shepherd has told me that there is a Divine Plan in which everyone will get precisely what they want. If you really love technology, He has a wonderful red planet in mind for you, where people who love technology will need it in order to survive. Like most things under the Sun, it’s all happened before. And those who love the Earth will become wise weavers on a beautiful green planet – where inappropriate technology will no longer work. The solar field is changing in ways our outmoded ‘nuclear furnace’ models cannot possibly predict…”
And if worse comes to worse the native people have been through all this before. Life goes on – they have ways of surviving the worst, and continue to smile and watch while we grow the bulk of our populations in known tidal wave zones. They take the long view, and it isn’t like they didn’t try to tell their naïve young ‘civilised’ cousins – who exterminated them and their knowledge.

“You know what the Aboriginal people call us around here? ‘The space people’.”

Aye, gentle reader, snake venom and a few insightful questions can make this Hermetic Hermit quite loquacious.

“So tell me,” O’Grady asks with a glint in his eye, “do you believe in God?”



Step out of the chains binding your mind and life! Your parents and grandparents were happy and satisfied to be lied to by those who still get away with stealing the wealth and knowledge of the Earth (and everywhere else) for themselves – are you?

Turn on. Tune in. Opt OUT! You have nothing to lose but your blinkers. Security is only found within and true abundance comes only to those prepared to give everything away when they no longer need it.

Doggerland: Sunken Greater Britain

Doggerland: Sunken Greater Britain
Doggerland, a now submerged area of the North Sea, was once larger than many modern European countries

A map of the UK with Doggerland marked as red
 A map of the UK with Doggerland, now sunken,  marked as red



“Doggerland was the real heartland of Europe until sea levels rose to give us the UK coastline of today. We have speculated for years on the lost land’s existence from bones dredged by fishermen all over the North Sea, but it’s only since working with oil companies in the last few years that we have been able to re-create what this lost land looked like.

“When the data was first being processed, I thought it unlikely to give us any useful information, however as more area was covered it revealed a vast and complex landscape. We have now been able to model its flora and fauna, build up a picture of the ancient people that lived there and begin to understand some of the dramatic events that subsequently changed the land, including the sea rising and a devastating tsunami.”

The research project is a collaboration between St Andrews and the Universities of Aberdeen, Birmingham, Dundee and Wales Trinity St David.

Rediscovering the land through pioneering scientific research, the research reveals a story of a dramatic past that featured massive climate change. The public exhibit brings back to life the Mesolithic populations of Doggerland through artefacts discovered deep within the sea bed.

The research suggests that the populations of these drowned lands could have been tens of thousands, living in an area that stretched from Northern Scotland across to Denmark and down the English Channel as far as the Channel Islands.

The research, a result of a painstaking 15 years of fieldwork around the murky waters of the UK, is one of the highlights of the London event.

The interactive display examines the lost landscape of Doggerland and includes artefacts from various times represented by the exhibit – from pieces of flint used by humans as tools to the animals that also inhabited these lands.

Using a combination of geophysical modelling of data obtained from oil and gas companies and direct evidence from material recovered from the seafloor, the research team was able to build up a reconstruction of the lost land.

The findings suggest a picture of a land with hills and valleys, large swamps and lakes with major rivers dissecting a convoluted coastline. As the sea rose the hills would have become an isolated archipelago of low islands. By examining the fossil record (such as pollen grains, microfauna and macrofauna) the researchers can tell what kind of vegetation grew in Doggerland and what animals roamed there. Using this information, they were able to build up a model of the ‘carrying capacity’ of the land and work out roughly how many humans could have lived there.

The research team is currently investigating more evidence of human behaviour, including possible human burial sites, intriguing standing stones and a mass mammoth grave.

Dr Bates continued, “We haven’t found an ‘x marks the spot’ or ‘Joe created this’, but we have found many artefacts and submerged features that are very difficult to explain by natural causes, such as mounds surrounded by ditches and fossilised tree stumps on the seafloor.

“There is actually very little evidence left because much of it has eroded underwater; it’s like trying to find just part of a needle within a haystack. What we have found though is a remarkable amount of evidence and we are now able to pinpoint the best places to find preserved signs of life.”

The only lands on Earth that have not been extensively explored are those that have been lost to the oceans. After the end of the last Ice Age extensive landscapes that had once been home to thousands of people were inundated by the sea. Although scientists predicted their existence for many years, exploration has only recently become a reality.

The exhibit explored those drowned landscapes around the UK and shows how they are being rediscovered through pioneering scientific research. It reveals their human story through the artefacts left by the people - a story of a dramatic past that featured lost lands, devastating tsunamis and massive climate change. These were the challenges that our ancestors met and that we face once more today.


How it works


Current climate change and associated sea level rise are at the forefront of social and scientific discussion, but research shows that dramatic changes in the environment have occurred numerous times in the past.

One of the most significant landscapes lost to sea level rise is the European world of Doggerland. Occupying much of the North Sea basin, this inundated landscape, bigger than many modern European countries, was slowly submerged between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC. Archaeologists now consider Doggerland to have been the heartland of human occupation within Northern Europe at that time, but understanding it depends on being able to locate and visualise the landscape.

Scientists have taken a new approach to this by coupling geophysical survey techniques developed by the oil industry with 3D visualisation technologies developed by the computer modelling industry. These innovative methodologies allow the recreation of these once inhabited landscapes, mapping rivers, lakes, hills, coastlines and estuaries, and the modelling of the flora and fauna associated with them. These models bring back to life the homeland of these Mesolithic populations, tantalisingly hinted at by artefacts recovered from the seabed. They also allow scientists to explore the effects of sea level rise upon the landscape and its populations in new and more immersive ways that may help the past provide solutions for the present.

Channel's key role in pre-history

By Paul Rincon
 
Andy Currant (AHOB)
The remains we find today tell a story of Britain's ancient past
A study of prehistoric animals has revealed the crucial role of the English Channel in shaping the course of Britain's natural history.

The Channel acted as a filter, letting some animals in from mainland Europe, but not others.

Even at times of low sea level, when Britain was not an island, the Channel posed a major barrier to colonisation.

This was because a massive river system flowed along its bed, UK researchers told a palaeo-conference in Gibraltar.

Today the English Channel is 520km long, 30-160km wide, about 30-100m in depth and slopes to the south-west.

Even now, the bed of the Channel is incised by a network of valleys, the remains of the river system, which may have been cut by catastrophic drainage of meltwater from further north.

"It would have been an incredible barrier at times of high sea level, but it would also have been a formidable barrier at times of low sea level for populations trying to move south to north," said Chris Stringer of London's Natural History Museum.

Professor Stringer presented the results here at the Calpe conference, a meeting of pre-history experts from all over the world.

The big flood

The evidence comes from the Ancient Human Occupation of Britain Project (AHOB). This five-year undertaking by some of the UK's leading palaeo-scientists has reassessed a mass of scientific data and filled in big knowledge gaps with new discoveries.

Chris Stringer's co-researchers Andy Currant, Danielle Shreve and Roger Jacobi have been studying how the mammal fauna of Britain has changed over the last 500,000 years.
See how the English Channel changed through time



During that period, animals have colonised, abandoned and re-colonised Britain many times as the climate shifted from warm to cold and back to warm.

The Channel is thought to have formed during a cold period 200,000 years ago or more.

Meltwater from an ice sheet formed a lake, which then overflowed in a catastrophic flood - cutting through a chalk ridge that previously connected Britain to France.

Changes in climate were accompanied by changing sea levels. At the height of an ice age, these would have been low. During interglacial periods, when the climate was warm, sea levels rose.

But even when water was locked up in the ice sheets and sea levels plummeted, the Rhine and the Thames rivers dumped meltwater into a major river system that flowed along the floor of the Channel.


Unusual collections

This means that once the Channel formed, there was never again a simple land crossing to be made from northern France to Britain.

"We find we're getting only a selection of the mammals during the British interglacials that there are in mainland Europe," said Professor Stringer.

For example, at one pre-historic site, researchers found hippopotamus and fallow deer; but unlike mainland Europe at the time, there were no horses and no humans.

"This suggests that the Channel, or the Channel river system, is acting as a filter to prevent the movement of some of these [mammal] forms into Britain," Professor Stringer added.

Once sea levels rose high enough for Britain to be an island, the select fauna that had made it across from mainland Europe could develop in extraordinary ways.

During one warm stage, about 80,000 years ago, fossils from Banwell Cave in Somerset show Britain was populated by some very unusual animals. These included reindeer, bison, and a giant bear similar to a polar bear.

Interestingly, there are no hyena fossils at Banwell Cave, as there were in mainland Europe. Instead, it appears, their role in the food chain may have been taken up by wolves.

"The wolves were developing much larger jaws. Their teeth show incredible signs of breakage and wear as if they're chomping bones like hyenas," said Professor Stringer.

The mammals at Banwell seem to be the kinds of animals normally found today in cold regions. But they lived in Britain during a warm stage and seemed to be adapting to their new environment.

The team thinks the antecedents of these animals must have arrived in Britain when the climate was cold. But when conditions warmed up, sea levels rose and isolated Britain, marooning this cold-adapted fauna in a warm land.

Discoveries at Bimini: Columns, Marble Building Ruins, and Possible Building Foundations in 100 Feet of Water

Discoveries at Bimini
Columns, Marble Building Ruins, and Possible Building Foundations in 100 Feet of Water


By
Dr. Greg Little



The present thinking in the ARE's Search For Atlantis Project is that evidence of an ancient maritime culture has been found at Bimini, Andros, and Cay Sal Bank in the Bahamas. The project has widened its scope in an effort to find definitive evidence of this culture.

With the 1968 announcement of the discovery of the Bimini Road, which is a 1900-foot long J-shaped formation of stone in shallow water off Bimini, interest in Bimini intensified. While early researchers enthusiastically accepted the Bimini Road as ruins from Atlantis, a few skeptics, most claiming backgrounds as geologists, have made a contrary assertion.

They claimed that the Bimini Road is the natural remains of a massive slab of beachrock that simply fractured in place and eventually settled to the bottom. Their "proof" was the following:

1. That there are no slabs of stone sitting squarely on top of each other. Our 2005 research proved this was untrue, finding and photographing numerous huge slabs squarely placed into multiple tiers.

2. That there are no tool marks on any stones. Research by archaeologists Bill Donato and a subsequent verification in 2005 also showed that this was not true. There are numerous mortise stones present at the site.

3. That there are no prop stones or leveling blocks under any of the huge blocks. Research in 2005 and 2006 also showed this to be false. Under the watchful cameras of an NBC News film crew making a documentary, we removed numerous rectangular slabs of stone from under the large blocks as well as a large wedge stone, which was used as a leveling block. These were later brought to the surface for examination.

4. That cores from the blocks showed that the stones had been part of the same massive natural formation, specifically that the internal structure of the stones could be traced from one stone to the next. This aspect was not directly investigated by our group.

However, inspection of the actual published reports by the skeptics showed that this was not the actual finding. The initial report clearly indicated that there were great differences between areas of the cores and that they were not, in fact, matched from one stone to the next.

We found that the subsequent reports, all of which were supposedly based on the first one, simply altered the description of the findings to fit the idea that all the stones matched. Two years ago we exposed this hoax.

5. That all the Bimini Road stones were beachrock, a naturally developing coarse limestone. The idea that all of the literally thousands of stone blocks at Bimini are beachrock comes from a few stone samples, but has been conclusively disproven by a host of researchers.

However, the geologists claiming that all the stones are beachrock implied that beachrock would not have been used as harbor construction material. In the Mediterranean, dozens of ancient harbor formations have been found and virtually all of them used beachrock to construct breakwaters, quays, and jetties.

In fact, beachrock is the most likely construction material that would have been used. It is at or near the shoreline, easy to cut, and plentiful. The skeptics did not compare any of the ancient harbors in the Mediterranean to the Bimini Road.

In essence, our research showed that the Bimini Road was actually the remains of an ancient harbor with the stone formation serving as a breakwater and quay.

The discovery of dozens of stone anchors there, with obvious rope grooves on them, has verified that there were ancient harbor formations in use.

In 2006, an additional harbor works was found about a mile from the Bimini Road. (It was cleared of sand and exposed by a 2006 hurricane.) Dubbed the "Paradise Point Pier," it appeared to be elevated off the bottom and was constructed from piled stone blocks and also seemed to have numerous "columns" on its surface.

While the ARE's Search For Atlantis Project had expanded well beyond Bimini, there were several areas around Bimini that merited more investigation. The findings are summarized below.

2006-2007 Bimini Expeditions

 

In late 2006 and in June 2007, two expeditions were conducted at Bimini. The first was an extensive high-tech project conducted by Bill Donato in November 2006. Both sub-bottom profiling and side-scan sonar were utilized at several areas.

A final report has yet to be issued. However, Donato has released some of the findings from the side-scan sonar results in deeper water to the west of Bimini.

Donato's project found a line of intriguing bottom structures a few miles west off Bimini at a depth of 100-feet. The computer assisted sonar revealed numerous rectangular features on the bottom.

These formations were all aligned the same way, oriented as if they were small buildings sitting by a shoreline. An immediate effort was made to dive to the features using the gps obtained by the sonar scan images.

However, as this is near the Gulf Stream, there were strong bottom currents that constantly pushed Donato and Krista Brown off the area. After receiving the images from the commercial underwater exploration company he utilized, Donato sent us the relevant images with the gps locations.

Our findings at the site are detailed in the next section. Donato's Bimini exploration also devoted a day to exploring the Paradise Point Pier area. He found numerous stone anchors on the breakwater formation exactly as should be found on an ancient harbor formation.

In addition, we believe that there may be columns there, identical to the columns reported at the inlet between North and South Bimini islands. (The earlier columns found at Bimini were of two types: fluted marble and cement.) There may be many of these columns present at the Paradise Point formation as they appear on our film of the formation.

The importance of these columns is directly related to their use at ancient Mediterranean harbors. For example, the Roman harbor at Cosa had a long breakwater constructed from large slabs of beachrock and other rubble.

Littered on the surface of the breakwater are dozens of cement and fluted marble cylinders identical to those at Bimini. It is not being suggested here that the Bimini formation was a Roman harbor, only that the construction techniques used at Bimini were also employed in the construction of ancient Mediterranean harbors.

Beyond that link, the identity of the builders remains speculative. The columns appear to have been added to the breakwater top as rubble to rebuild the structure as it deteriorated over time.

In June 2007, Drs. Greg and Lora Little conducted an expedition to Bimini accompanied by Krista and Eslie Brown. The purpose of the trip was to conduct side-scan sonar of the Bimini Road, the Paradise Point Pier, and the line of stones known as Proctor's Road.

In addition, we planned to investigate the site of Donato's underwater rectangles and a stone formation 7-miles north of Bimini. We have obtained our own side-scan sonar unit, built it into a fully portable model, and utilized it to identify and examine a host of underwater features.

Proctor's Road is a mile-long line of stones to the west of the Bimini Road, near the North Bimini shoreline. Previous research had shown that there were five complete or partial stone circles there, formed from huge stone blocks arranged into circular patterns.

These are perhaps mooring circles, a method of ship mooring utilized at several ancient Mediterranean harbors, including the previously mentioned Cosa harbor. The side-scan sonar was used to measure and analyze the circles.

We were able to identify several of these with the side-scan. In addition, the side-scan sonar was used to obtain a complete image of both the Bimini Road and the Paradise Point Pier. When the images were obtained, sand had covered wide portions of the Bimini Road.

 

Discovery of Marble "Ruins"

 

Several years ago the Browns learned of an area about 7-miles north of Bimini, which had some interesting stone blocks on the bottom. Reaching this area, we saw a few dark, coral encrusted beams of stone and several small piles covered with sand. The side-scan sonar revealed that the area was actually widely littered with apparently stone forms hidden under sand.

Focusing our efforts on the one small exposed area, we were astonished to see a triangular, well-polished slab of stone that appeared exactly like the apex at the top tip of a roof on a temple.

It was about 7-feet long and its thickness is unknown. The triangular stone was embedded in sand but we were able to confirm that it was at least three feet thick.

After cleaning this stone of sand and debris, a beautiful, somewhat ornate slab was revealed. Several small pieces off the edge of this apex were removed and brought to the surface. It was white marble, gleaming like quartz in the sun.

Several beams, some as long as 15-feet were found, with one end disappearing into the sand. In addition, columns, polished building slabs, and many smaller blocks were found.

Small samples revealed that these were of the same type of white marble. Knowing that the site had been previously known, we then scoured records to see what had been written about it.

We found that in 1970, Richard Wingate and a group of researchers had investigated the marble. Using an underwater sand blower, Wingate found that the marble was widely scattered and had at least three layers of slabs before it reached the bedrock seabed.

Under the bottom layer of marble, Wingate found the wooden ribs of an old ship. According to Wingate's group, not far from this site there are massive areas covered with granite slabs, supposedly from two other shipwrecks.

We had previously visited Moselle Shoals, only a few miles away and found shipwrecks and hundreds of granite blocks. Unfortunately, the entire area is literally littered with shipwrecks and such cargo.

In his 1980 book, "Lost Outpost of Atlantis," Wingate related that at some future date an archaeologist would rediscover the marble and wonder what it was. Indeed.

Donato's Underwater Rectangles: Building Foundations? Using the gps obtained from Donato's side scan sonar image, we arrived at the area of the underwater rectangles. We then utilized our own side-scan sonar and found them within 5 minutes.

We used a setting that yields a bottom image 700-feet wide and could see that there were numerous rectangular formations on the bottom lying in what looked like a nearly straight line.

The rectangular forms sat at the top of a 10-foot drop-off, which led to a narrow flat area. Then it descended quickly toward the deep Gulf Stream.

Intrigued, we dropped a lead weight buoy as we passed over one of the larger rectangular forms. We later found that the weight fell directly into the rectangle and, surprisingly, the boat's anchor fell into another one nearby.

The sizes of the rectangular formations vary somewhat with the largest about 15 x 30 feet, however, most of them are smaller, 8 x 10-feet, about the size of small buildings. Their depth (100-feet) is actually just above the sea level at 10,000 B.C. It is known that in 10,000 B.C. the sea levels were about 110-feet lower than today, meaning that these structures were once elevated just above the ancient shoreline.

Eslie and Krista Brown, both of whom are Master Divers, dived the site and took a series of photographs in the cloudy water near the Gulf Stream. When they reached the surface, they reported that the structures were formed out of coral encrusted stone.

The photos revealed that the sides of some of the formations seemed to be made from small stone blocks, some of which sat squarely on top of each other. Several square or rectangular stones appeared to be embedded into the bottom, especially at the corners of the rectangular structures.

In addition, several photos show intriguing artifacts, which could be pots or amphorae. However, only a more detailed investigation can prove the actual identity of the artifacts and the structures.

In sum, the preliminary investigation of these rectangular forms shows that they may well be building foundations, perhaps as old as 12,000-years. Plans are now being made for a more thorough investigation of this site.

 

Underwater Stone Platform Discovered in Andros Island, Bahamas


A husband-wife research team affiliated with the A.R.E. (Association for Research & Enlightenment) has announced the discovery of a gigantic, three-tiered stone platform lying under 10 feet of water just off northern Andros Island. Drs. Greg and Lora Little, who found the underwater structure, are based in Memphis, TN, and produce a monthly archaeologically-related newsletter for the A.R.E. entitled Ancient Mysteries.

The Littles began a series of research expeditions in late February in the Bahamian island of Andros in an attempt to solve several 35-year-old mysteries. In the late 1960s pilots photographed strange, circular formations off the western coast of Andros, many of which had the appearance of stone rings.

Other investigators have spotted unusual formations under the shallow coastal waters of Andros, including one in the shape of the cursive letter e’. However, no one had ever visited these sites to determine the nature of the mysterious formations.

During two visits to Andros in February and March, the Littles managed to identify and locate all of the sites during an aerial survey. While Andros is the largest Bahamas island, it is almost completely unexplored and sparsely populated.

Western Andros is virtually uninhabited. Long and difficult trips through mangrove swamps and shallow tidal bays were subsequently made to all of the sites.

The pair found that all of the mysterious underwater formations had natural explanations. But during the March trip, on their last night on the island, an unexpected visitor appeared at their door.

Dino Keller, an experienced diver and former dive operator who is now Vice-President of WAVE-TV, gradually told them about an unusual stone structure he had viewed one time from a boat just after Hurricane Andrew passed the island in 1992. Keller told them it looked like the Bimini Road, only bigger.

The Bimini Road is a J-shaped formation of large stones, lying on a sandy bottom a few hundred yards off Bimini Island. Bimini is about 50 miles from Miami and about 100 miles north of Andros. Although still controversial, the Road is often called the Road to Atlantis, and many believe it was part of the fabled lost continent.

We were skeptical, Lora said, but we had to look. So the next morning the Littles went to the general area of Andros where the stones were supposed to be located. Lora videotaped the event while Greg snorkeled out into the ocean.

They eventually found the strange formation about 500 yards offshore. It appeared to be a gigantic, flat-stone platform made by thick, mostly rectangular blocks of stone. But they didnt have enough time to carefully examine the entire structure. In April the Littles returned to the site for three days, diving and snorkeling while filming and taking measurements.

 

It appears to be composed of three flat tiers, Greg stated. Each tier is 50 feet wide and rises two feet above the level below it. The bottom tier has well-preserved two-foot-thick rectangular blocks on its front edge.

The blocks are mostly 30- by 25-feet and are lying side by side in rows. The back portion of the 50-foot-wide tier is partially covered with sand and has smaller stone blocks comprising it. Coral is starting to form on portions of it.

Then the second tier starts with another row of 30- by 25-foot stone blocks. Several of these blocks are cracked and broken with seaweed growing between the seams.

The rest of the 50-foot wide tier is partially covered by sand. This leads to the third tier, which is also formed by the same type of huge stones. The highest tier has more damage, and it is partially obscured by sand and rubble.

While the width of the platform seems to be 150 feet, the length remains unknown. It appears to be at least 400 yards long, Greg stated, but it ends in a huge pile of sand and seaweed. The structure could be natural, and geologists we have contacted think that it is quite special--whatever it is.

“They have suggested that it may be a well-preserved, ancient beach, perhaps 6,000 years old or more. But the tiers increase in height as you move away from the present shoreline toward the ocean. This isnt what one would usually expect with a beach.

“At first glance it looks manmade, or perhaps at least altered and used by ancient people. But we just dont know. More study is needed to really determine what it is. It does bear some resemblance to the Bimini Road, but the stones and the structure itself are quite a bit larger.

The Littles plan to release a video documentary and book on their research at the October 2003 Ancient Mysteries Conference in Virginia Beach.
