The ancient walls of a lost city in southern China have been uncovered in a remarkable find by archaeologists. The northern section of the city was found at the Sansingdui archaeological site located in Sichuan province. It dates back than 3,000 years to the Bronze Age.
The Southern, Western and Eastern sections fo the city have now been uncovered as well, granting archaeologists a full picture of what the settlement used to look like. Three Neolithic tombs thought to have predated the walls have also been unearthed, with one including a full human skeleton.
A team of Russian scientists and researchers have just returned from the “Valley of Death” region in Siberia with startling claims. Lead scientist Michale Visok had this to say in an interview with a Russian newspaper on what they had found:
“We went out into the Valley of Death to really see and investigate the metal cauldrons that people claim exist there and we actually found five metallic objects buried in marsh like swamps”
Michale gave the following details about these metal objects:
They are each submerged in small pools of swamp like water that is anywhere from 2-3 feet deep.
They are definitely metallic. The scientists entered each swamp and walked on top of the objects and heard metallic sounds when striking the objects.
Then there’s the giant. One male mummy measured over seven feet tall and had to be folded to fit in the burial shaft. Dr. Muhlestein thinks his size was caused by a medical condition.
With almost a million mummies yet to be uncovered, many more mysteries remain.
A man in China took footage of this giant mysterious flying creature that was spotted near the border of Laos.
Many theories have emerged with some claiming the creature is a real dragon that was caught on tape and others saying it provide evidence that pterodactyls still exist.
Is this a dragon or a pterodactyl caught on tape?
Armenia is a country full of archeological surprises. It is a country where mysterious stories appear at every corner, and most of them still wait to be solved.
However, one of the greatest stories of prehistoric Armenia relates to the Army Stones, a riddle hidden between a marvelous construction of megaliths.
Zorats Karer is also known as Carahunge, Karahunj, Qarahunj. It is located in an area of around 7 hectares and covers the site nearby the Dar river canyon, close to the city of Sisan.
The ancient site is often called the "Armenian Stonehenge," but the truth of what it is may be even more fascinating.
According to researchers, Zorats Karer could be among the world's oldest astronomical observatories, and is at least 3,500 years older than British Stonehenge.
Prehistoric Astronomy at Zorats Karer
The site was rediscovered in 1984 by a team led by researcher Onik Khnkikyan. After a few months of work, Khnkikyan concluded that the site of Zorats Karer must have been an observatory.
Moreover, with time, Armenian archeologists, astronomers and astrophysicists found that there were at least two other ancient sites important for prehistoric astronomy in the vicinity: Angeghakot and Metzamor.
In 1994, Zorats Karer was extensively analyzed by Professor Paris Herouni, a member of the Armenian National Academy of Science and President of the Radio Physics Research Institute in Yerevan. His expeditions revealed a great deal of fascinating information about the site.
First of all, his team counted 223 stones, of which 84 were found to have holes. They measured the longitude, latitude and the magnetic deviation of the site. The researchers also created a topographical map of the monumental megalithic construction, which became the basis of further work.
Finally, the main treasure of the site was unearthed – a collection of many impressive and unique astronomical objects.
The researchers realized that several stones were used to make observations of the sun, moon and stars. They were located according to knowledge about the rising, culmination moments, and setting of the sun, moon and specific stars.
The stones are basalt, somewhat protected by moss but smoothed by the rain and wind and full of holes and erosion. Many of the stones were damaged over time.
In ancient times, the stones were shaped and arranged in what are known as the north and south arms, the central circle, the north-eastern alley, the separate standing system of circles and the chord.
The stones are between 0.5 and 3 meters tall and weigh up to 10 tons. Some of them are related to burial cists.
The researchers are almost sure that the site had at least two meanings — ritual and scientific. According to the Armenian tradition, the name of the site comes from two words car (stone) and henge (sound).
The Speaking Stones of Armenia
Between the years 1994 and 2001, Zorats Karer was examined on several occasions by radio physicists. Even the famous archeo-astronomer Gerald Hawkings arrived to see the fascinating site.
A team of German archeologists suggested that it is an impressive Middle Bronze Age necropolis or the remains of a Hellenistic city wall. These claims did not convince other researchers.
Finally, a number of researchers concluded that the monument is at least 7,500-years-old, but possibly much more.
It is believed to have been created for ritual reasons and the need to understand the movements of the sun, moon and stars. The people who created connected their beliefs with the early science of astronomy.
It seems that the main functions of the observatory, which was also a temple, were to serve in the cult of the Sun god of early Armenians, to provide protection through cultivating the Armenian god of science, to serve as a school, and to function as an observatory.
The methods used in the observatory were based on the laws of nature and changes of the Earth's axis precession. It seems that the observatory was in use for more or less 5,500 years.
Searching for the stars
Artifacts discovered on the site of Zorats Karer are now held in a small, local museum. Among them are stones with petroglyphs and grave goods from Bronze Age cist burials.
The researchers believe that the site still contains many secrets. However, due to a lack of funds, excavation work cannot be continued as intensively as the archeologists would like.
Many people continue to visit the site searching for answers related to astronomy. They bring telescopes, and choose the dates which are the best to observe planets, the moon, and stars.
It seems that the site of the Zorast Karer remains to this day a perfect place to observe the sky.

So with the election coming up and the conflict with Russia seeming to be more and more in the media than ever before I have been thinking about a guy I read about John Titor. John Titor claimed to be a "time traveler", but from my understanding, he was more of a "dimension jumper". For this to be true, the multi-universe theory would have to be true. He claims he came from an alternate timeline from the year 3036 (I believe that's the date). In his time his United States became a power house who didn't have the best interest of freedom and its people.
SO A REBELLION BROKE OUT, A CIVIL WAR STARTS.
From this civil war the rebels where born, they were fighting for the "people" against a corrupt government. Isn't this the age-old tale of every nation everywhere at one point and time? Well here's where it gets interesting, in 2005 the war started the fighting broke out all over the nation. Obviously, this didn't happen in our timeline. But that's what is considered a variant, something that isn't the same. So on with the tale, the United States was part of a thing called United Federation Empire. Could this be the "UN" of our timeline? I've noticed our military bases fly the UN flag now.

The Royston Cave is an artificial cave in Hertfordshire, England. It is not known who created the cave or what it was used for, but there has been much speculation.
Some believe that it was used by the Knights Templar. Others believe it may have been an Augustinian store mine.
Another theory is that it was a Neolithic flint mine. None of these theories have been substantiated, and the origin of the Royston Cave remains a mystery.
In the northern Ethiopian town of Lalibela one can find a number of churches that have been hewn out of the solid rock of the natural landscape. These chthonic churches were carved into their shape in the 12th century - though some theories suggest the initial work began several centuries earlier - at the behest of of the Emperor of Ethiopia, Saint Gebre Mesqel Lalibela, and their construction is said to mimic the layout of Jerusalem and the Holy Land in order to create a 'New Jerusalem'.
The churches are also said to take many features of Solomon's Temple, including a 'Holy of Holies' where a replica of the Ark of the Covenant is kept. This Judaic connection is found across many aspects of Ethiopian culture, from a rejection of pork as a food and similarities between Ethiopian and Judaic words, through to a strong belief that the Ark of the Covenant is housed in a church in the city of Axum.
Some say this Judaic 'heritage' arose directly from the construction of Lalibela as a 'New Jerusalem' in the 12th century, while others claim the influence is explained by various 'hidden histories' of Ethiopia, ranging from the involvement of the Knights Templar through to the hiding of the actual Ark of the Covenant in Ethiopia centuries before the destruction of Jerusalem.
For a cracking read that explores some of these themes, see Graham Hancock's The Sign and the Seal (Amazon US and Amazon UK):
Hancock was in Ethiopia in 1983, having been hired by the Ethiopian government to write and produce a coffee-table book extolling that country. He was greatly surprised when told that Ethiopia's Falasha Jews did not exist, and that many people could land in jail, or worse, if he went around photographing such nonexistents. Even so, off he went to Axum, deep in the desert, to see the temples and statuary of the Black Jews of Ethiopia. What he found was a sect that claimed to have the original Ark of the Covenant.

Not only did the ancient Hopi believe their Gods inhabited the inner parts of the Earth, they also depicted mysterious Ant-like beings and flying shields thousands of years ago.
Interestingly, their legends also speak of a great flood which is a clear parallel to ancient Sumerian legends of the Great Flood.
‘Hopituh Shi-nu-mu’ is the name that one of the Native American tribes is called and means “peaceful people.”
The history of the ancient Hopi goes back thousands of years and makes them one of the oldest cultures in the world.
Unlike other mythologies of different cultures which speak of gods that descended from the heavens, in the ancient legends of the Hopi, a different story is told, speaking of mighty gods who reside in the center of the Earth.
But who were they? In a similar way, nearly all pre-Columbian cultures just like the Hopi believe that one day, not too far away, the gods who have shaped human culture will come back to Earth.
They have always lived according to the teachings that were given to them by Masauwu, the Master of the Fourth World, where ethical concepts are deeply rooted in their culture.
However, contrary to many other mythologies that are widespread around thew globe, the Hopi believe that their gods do not live in the infinite spaces of the cosmos, but live in the heart of the Earth, conveying the idea of a hollow earth existing right below our feet.
The ancient Hopi speak of their deities as ‘ant men.’ In fact, some of the petroglyphs found near Mishongnovi, Arizona, created by the ancient Hopi depict the enigmatic beings with antennas’ offering an idea of how these strange ant-men looked like.
According to the mythology of the Hopi, at the beginning of time, Taoiwa, the Creator, created Sotuknang, his nephew, giving him the task of creating nine universes or worlds: one for Taiowa, one for him and the other seven for the overabundance of life.
In a cyclical conception of time, in a similar way to Aztec mythology, these worlds would continue cyclically.
The mythology tells that story that the first three worlds, Tokpela, Tokpa, and Kuskurza have already been inhabited and subsequently destroyed due to corruption and wickedness of men.
The Hopi speak that the end of each cycle is marked by the return of the gods, and announced by the appearance of the Blue Kachina Star the sign of the ‘Day of Purification,” in which the old world is destroyed, and a new one begins.
Each time one of the worlds is destroyed, the Hopi, the faithful are saved and taken by the gods to the underground cities to escape the destruction of the planet.
In each cyclic destruction, and always according to the mythology of the Hopi, the ‘men-ant’ are crucial for human survival.
The so-called ‘First World’ (Tokpela) was apparently destroyed by the fire of global proportions, perhaps a kind of massive volcanism, or the impact of an asteroid or even a large coronal mass ejection from the Sun of catastrophic proportions.
The ‘Second World’ (Tokpa), however, was destroyed by the cold. Most likely due to a pole shift that caused a massive ice age that destroyed life on the planet.
Interestingly, in the course of these two global cataclysms, the members of the Hopi tribe were guided during the day by a cloud of strange shape and a moving star overnight, leading to the presence of the so-called ‘Ant-Man’ which the Hopi call Anu Sinom.
This creature escorted the Hopi to underground caves where they found shelter and sustenance.
Interestingly, in the ancient Sumerian language, Anum or Anu was the god of the. He is the creator of creation.
In the Hopi legend, the mysterious creature that resembled a humanoid-ant is described as a generous and hardworking creature, willing to provide food to the Hopi, and to teach them methods of food preservation so they could survive.
As you can see, like many cultures around the globe, the ancient Hopi believed in the existence of subterranean chambers, cities which are eerily similar to other theories of the Hollow Earth.
The Ancient Hopi also mention the mysterious ant-men gods who helped the ancient Hopi progress through time. However, the ancient Hopi also speak of the patuwvotas or ancient ‘flying shields.’
According to Frank Waters, author of Mystic Mexico: The advent of the Sixth World of Consciousness (1975) it is in the ‘third world’ where the ancient Hopi introduce the concept of the Patuwvotas, or “flying shields’.
In the third cycle, it is said that humanity built a very advanced civilization, and developed the concept of “flying shields,” a sort of vehicle that can quickly travel to different places in the world and devastate entire cities on Earth.
The Third World was destroyed by Sotuknang, the nephew of the Creator, with a great flood.
Also, in this case, there is a clear parallel with the Sumerian tradition in which we talk about the great flood that destroyed all previous civilization on the planet.
This story is told in the Epic of Gilgamesh, a text which was then taken to biblical tradition in the history of the Flood and Noah’s Ark.
According to the traditions of the Hopi, the survivors of the flood are scattered in different parts of the world, under the guidance of Masauwu, the Spirit of Death and the Master of the Fourth World.
A fascinating petroglyph of the Hopi is that where Masauwu is represented piloting a wingless boat that has the shape of a dome. The similarity between the “flying shields” and what we today consider as airplanes or flying saucers, is mind boggling.
It seems evident that the flying shields or ‘ships without wings’ are something ancient cultures around the globe witnessed in the distant past.
The ancient Hopi used the term to refer to something that was capable of flying through the skies and transporting people.
