Earth History You Didn’t Learn in School
In order to understand the gathering and consolidation of power and control over the earth in our present day we must first understand our ancient past, employing the old adage that if you don’t learn the lessons of history, you are doomed to repeat it’s mistakes. And believe me when I say that if humanity as a whole were aware of our true history, there would be a massive world-wide revolution against the current power brokers and their ilk.
Our future as a race lies buried beneath millennium of rocks, earth and water and in the pages of texts which describe a civilization so old, it is spoken of as legends, instead of the authentic history of the antediluvian society. It is the contention of the author that the biblical pre-flood civilization of the Hebrew bible and other ancient traditions are none other than the legend of Atlantis spoken of in so many ancient texts.
America as the New Atlantis
In the 16th century, Sir Francis Bacon, who described himself as the Herald of a New Age, was at the helm of the secret societies in England and is accredited with the formation of Freemasonry. When Bacon penned his classic work, The New Atlantis he believed that America and Atlantis were one and the same. This view was shared by many of Bacon’s contemporaries.
Atlantis is the subject of a legend about an advanced island civilization that was destroyed or lost. Stories about Atlantis are first mentioned in Plato’s dialogues Timaeus and Critias, in which its characters say it was destroyed by an earthquake or a tsunami about 9,000 years before the time in which Plato wrote (about 11,699 years ago).
About 2500 years ago, the Greek philosopher Plato set down a dialog where he recounted a story from an ancient Greek poet and statesman called Solon. Solon had journeyed to Egypt in search of wisdom to help his beloved Greece, which was beset with factions and troubles. Solon took counsel from the priests of the city of Sais. An old priest told him, ” O Solon, Solon, you Greeks are never anything but children. There is no old opinion handed down among you, or any science that is white with age…” The priest then recounted the story of the lost city of Atlantis which lay west beyond the Straits of Gibraltar.
Throughout the centuries many explorers, researchers and treasure hunters have sought out the location of the Lost City of Atlantis. Scholars have put out various theories regarding it possible locations. All these efforts have not led to any firm conclusions of it’s location. However, these explorers have discovered many other related cities, often sunken in the seas or oceans of the world. Several of these structures are pyramidal in nature. According to sources, Atlantis architecture is pyramidal. One theory states that the people of Atlantis also practiced mummification, elongated the skulls of their children, and constructed corbel vault architecture.
Sunken Cities – Evidence of Ancient Cataclysms
In support of this idea is physical evidence on a world wide scale. Everyone has heard about the legend of the Lost City of Atlantis and the Lost civilization of Lemuria, believed to be a land mass that connected the Indian sub-continent with Australia. There are actually many such legends throughout the ancient cultures of Earth. But are they only legends? Or are they ancient memories of terrible cataclysms?
The facts are that they are not merely stories. In the search for the Lost City of Atlantis and the lost city of Mu (Lemuria) explorers and archeologists have uncovered physical remains of ancient sunken cities. And these cities are constructed using methods and technologies which today in 2012 are beyond our technical expertise.
In the Mediterranean Sea alone there are 200 known sunken cities. Some of the more well know sunken cities in the world are:
1. The 9500 year old sunken city of the western coast of India, in the Gulf of Cambay.
2. The 6000 year old sunken city off the western coast of Cuba. The city lis 2500 feet below the ocean.
Off the waters of Okinawa Japan, beyond the tiny island of Yonasuni, lies a giant 600′ x 90′ pyramid structure dated to 8000 BCE.
The ruins under Peru’s Lake Titicaca, the highest lake in the world.
The Hindu traditions speak of Atala, a sunken Paradise lying in the Far East.
A 420 foot pyramid off the coast of Florida discovered by Captain Don Henry in 1976. The pyramid is forty miles off the southern coast of Florida, 300 feet below the surface. Subsequent underwater closed-circuit TV was to show the pyramid to be about 420 feet high, close to the size of the Great Pyramid of Egypt.
Some 12 miles south of Lake Titicaca are the ancient remains of Tiahuanaco. Things that can’t happen have happened here. The site is built 12,000 feet above sea level. This is oxygen-poor air, in which the slightest exertion can cause nausea and worse. Yet blocks of up to 200 tons were maneuvered over distances of up to 90 miles. This grand complex was built with a technical skill unknown to modern civilization.
One hundred pyramids have been discovered in Shensi Province of China. The largest according to one claim, is 1200 feet high, 2.5 times the height of Egypt’s Great Pyramid.
Historical Evidence on Atlantis
Corroborating evidence of the dating the destruction of Atlantis is compelling. Many sources put the destruction at 11, 600-12,000 years ago – Plato, Manetho, Hindu traditions on the Yugas, the Codex Troano of the Mayas, Hindu traditions and others.
The are two issues of prime importance connected to these sunken cities. First off, these cities are older than any cities that archeologists have uncovered to date above the ground. During this time period, modern historians and archeology experts believe that primitive man was barely assembled into tribal groups, let alone building large cities. Second and most profound of all is the fact that these cities are sunken below the oceans. How did they get there?
Atlantis was referred to as an island which existed beyond the Pillars of Hercules (the Straits of Gibraltar) by Plato. Typically when we think of an island we think of a small land mass surrounded by water. So when we think of Atlantis we think of it in those terms.
Manly P Hall, considered by Masons as Freemasonry’s greatest philosopher, believed Atlantis was a vast empire comprised of a commonwealth of nations, which would one day be rebuilt. He also taught that the ancient wisdom of Atlantis was contained in the writings and teachings of Freemasonry and all the secret societies.
Also very noteworthy is the wisdom of the indigenous people’s of Canada and America who refer to Turtle Island, as an ancient designation for North America. These tribes are traditionally known as the Original Nations of Turtle Island, or the First Peoples or First Nations. This establishes that the idea of a ‘continental island.’
The Mayas tell, in their myths of origin, of a mysterious island or continent called Aztlan from where their people originated.
Many critics of Atlantis insist that, besides Plato’s dialogues, Timaeus and Critias, there is no other independent evidence provided by ancient authorities on the matter. A huge understatement and not consistent with the truth. Ancient myths and traditions of most nations center on the legend of the Flood and on the destruction of Paradise. The original focus of civilization that is none other than Atlantis.
The Pillars of Atlantis
Proclus, a commentator on Plato’s works, affirms that Crantor also visited Sais Egypt, as Solon had done 300 years before, where he was shown a golden pillar inscribed with hieroglyphs that recorded in detail the history of Atlantis exactly as they had told it to his famous predecessor.
Manetho, the Egyptian chronicler, confirms the existence of such pillars and claims that, shortly before the Flood, Thoth-Hermes inscribed in pillars the epitome of the ancient wisdom, so that the ancient knowledge should not be lost in the cataclysm, an act which demonstrates knowledge of the coming destruction.
Herodotus (Hist. II:58) personally saw, in Tyre, in a temple of Hercules, “two pillars, one of pure gold, the other of emerald, which shone with great brilliancy at night.” Such Pillars of Hercules were erected by the Phoenicians just about everywhere they settled. But they did it particularly at crucial straits linking two seas, as was the case of Gibraltar and the Bosphorus. The twin pillars commemorated, according to experts, the two founders of Atlantis, Hercules and Atlas.
Alexander, the Great, personally inspected, according to his historians, many such giant pillars of gold bearing strange scripts in the extremities of India. He went beyond the pillars of Hercules and Dionysus as the limits of his campaigns in the Orient (the Indies), and even left his own pillars as a testimony of this.
Josephus, the Jewish first century historian, reports that Seth (Set), the son of Adam, “in order that wisdom and astronomical knowledge should not perish in the cataclysm [the Flood] made two pillars, one of stone the other of brick in which he inscribed this knowledge for posterity, said pillars existing in the land of Siriad [Egypt]to this day.”
Plato affirms, in his Critias, that the Atlantean kings inscribed in golden pillars their laws, edicts and judicial decisions, in a strange ritual involving the sacrifice of a bull dedicated to Poseidon. This type of ritual is characteristic of the Indies, where it is called Gomedha This sacrifice commemorates the death of Paradise (Gomeda-dvipa), which seems to be no other than Atlantis itself. A well-known instance of such inscribed pillars in India is the Pillar of Delhi, erected by King Ashoka, to commemorate his victory over his enemies. Though made of steel, the Pillar of Delhi is a peerless technological feat of antiquity, one that many experts associate with Atlantis. The pillar is forged from a single piece of steel, and is stainless, having defied the centuries without any oxidation at all.
Another puzzling technology that proves the superior metallurgical skill of the Atlanteans is the “orichalch” that Plato mentions as covering the walls of Atlantis. The true etym of the name is the Latin spelling aurichalcum, that is, “golden copper”, or “golden bronze”. In reality the word pertains to brass, an alloy of copper and zinc that resembles gold, just as Plato states. The fact that Plato knew of it, and attributed its technology to Atlantis can, hence, hardly be doubted.
Plato tells how the walls of Atlantis were clad with gold, silver, bronze, tin and orichalch, attesting to Atlantis’ enormous mineral wealth, during an era when no one else had yet developed these sophisticated technologies.
The sources of these metals and, particularly, tin, have never been adequately identified. The Koltepe mines in Anatolia were small and insufficient for the task, those of Tartessos, Spain were purely legendary, and those of Cornwall were only discovered after the Bronze Age.
All that tin traditionally came from the legendary Islands of Tin, the Cassiterides. These mysterious islands were also called Tarshish and Tartessos, Islands of Metals. Their existence is stated in the Bible and other sources.
Cataclysm, Flood or Nuclear War?
Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds – The Bhagavad-Gita
The History Channel broadcasted a documentary which discussed ancient nuclear wars in the Indian subcontinent which were based on the literary evidences in ancient Vedic texts and epics like Mahabharata and the modern findings of archaeological excavations at sites like Mohenjo Daro and Harappa, Pakistan.
According to David Davenport, an expert of Sanskrit who spent 12 years studying ancient Hindu scripts and evidence at the ancient site of Mohenjo-Daro, declared in 1996 that what was uncovered at the site of Mohenjo Daro corresponds exactly to the destruction at Nagasaki, Japan when it was destroyed by an atomic bomb near the end of World War II.
Davenport published his startling findings in an amazing book, “Atomic Destruction in 2000 B.C.”, Milan, Italy, 1979. Davenport reported that:
There was an epicenter about 50 yards wide where everything was crystallized, fused or melted
…Sixty yards from the center the bricks are melted on one side indicating a blast.
The horrible, mysterious event of 4,000 years ago that leveled Mohenjo Daro is recorded in an old Hindu manuscript called the Mahabharata, which has been guarded by Hindu holy men for centuries. The text reads:
“…white hot smoke that was a thousand times brighter than the sun rose in infinite brilliance and reduced the city to ashes. Water boiled…horses and war chariots were burned by the thousands…the corpses of the fallen were mutilated by the terrible heat so that they no longer looked like human beings…”
Professor Antonio Castellani, a space engineer in Rome, also stated that, it’s possible that what happened at Mohenjo Daro was not a natural phenomenon.
The ruins of the ancient cities of Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa are extremely radioactive. They had been ruined with a nuclear blast. Huge stratum of clay and green glass were found, melted under the high temperature. Similar stratum of green glass can also found in Nevada deserts after every nuclear explosion. Evidence of melted sand turned to glass can be found all over the planet. The real Mount Sinai in modern day Saudi Arabia is covered with black glass reminiscent of a nuclear blast.
Excavations down to the street level revealed 44 scattered skeletons. All the skeletons were flattened to the ground. It has been claimed that the skeletons, after thousands of years, are still among the most radioactive that have ever been found, on a par with those of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The Mahabharata, the great ancient Indian epic, contains many legends about the powerful force of a mysterious weapon. One of the chapters tells of a shell, which sparkled like fire, but had no smoke:
“When the shell hit the ground, the darkness covered the sky, twisters and storms leveled the towns. A horrible blast burnt thousands of animals and people to ashes. Peasants, townspeople and warriors dived in the river to wash away the poisonous dust.”
Astounding mysteries of India’s antiquity can also be found in the town of Shivapur. There are two enigmatic stones resting opposite the local shrine. One of them weighs 55 kilograms, the other one is 41 kilograms. If eleven men touch the bigger stone, and nine men touch the smaller stone, if they all chant the magic phrase, which is carved on one of the walls of the shrine, the two stones will levitate in the air and will hang there for two seconds.
More Mysteries in India-Pakistan
According to the Hindu texts, millions of soldiers died in the Mahabharata war, a war which lasted for only 18 days. The detailed description of the adverse impact the war had on nature which was so obvious even years after the war:
“36 Years after the great Mahabharata war – strong and dry winds carrying gravels (rock fragments) still blew from every side. The horizon was always covered with some kind of fog in all directions. Blazing pieces of coal fell from sky to earth. The disc of the Sun was always covered with dust.” [Mahabharata – Vana Parva (Book 3)]
The Vedic civilization spanned from around 10500 BCE, to around 3000 BCE. Mahabharata – the longest epic in the world with around 100,000 verses, is the history of the ancient world centered around ancient India at the end of the Dwapara Yuga – dating back to anywhere around 3500 BCE to 6000 BCE – based on the astronomical dating proofs and the drying up of the mighty Vedic river Saraswati which is said to have taken place at the end of the Mahabharata period.
In the forest areas between the Indian mountains of Rajmahal and the Ganges, the explorer De Camp came upon unknown charred ruins. A number of huge masses appeared fused together and hollowed at various points “like lumps of tin struck by a stream of molten steel.” The result could not be due to ordinary fire.
Similar reports have come from other travelers in the jungle areas, reports of ruined buildings with walls ‘like thick slabs of crystal,” likewise holed, split and corroded by some mysterious force.
Here are eyewitness reports that raise the compelling question: Did nuclear war wipe out large sections of the civilized world in the upper regions of the Ganges during the third millennium BCE?.
The ancient text of the Mahabharata recounts in detail how aircraft were used to launch a weapon that devastated three cities. The record is strangely similar to an eyewitness report of an atomic detonation. It describes:
The brightness of the blast, the column of rising smoke and fire, the fallout, intense shock waves and heatwaves, the appearance of the victims, the effects of radiation poisoning
The historical text describes the following characteristics of the war:
An iron thunderbolt contained ‘the power of the universe.
An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose in all its splendor.
Clouds roared upward. Blood-colored clouds swept down onto the earth.
Fierce winds began to blow. Elephant’s miles away were knocked off their feet.
The earth shook, scorched by the terrible violent heat of this weapon.
Corpses were so burnt that they were no longer recognizable. Hair and nails fell out. Pottery broke without cause. Birds were turned white. After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected.
Thousands of war vehicles fell down on all sides . . .
Thousands of corpses burnt to ashes.
Never before have we seen such an awful weapon, and never before have we heard of such a weapon.
Until we started to experiment with radioactive substances, no person on earth could have described radiation sickness, for the simple reason that such a disease did not exist. Yet radiation sickness, in clinical detail, is described: the hair loss, vomiting, weakness and eventual death—classic symptoms of radiation poisoning.
More significantly, it states that one could save himself by removing all metal from his person and immersing himself in the water of rivers. The reason can only be in order to wash away contaminated particles—the exact procedure followed today.
Now the reason for the occurrences of such drastic changes in nature could be only one of the following three events:
·An asteroid or comet impact
·A massive volcano
·The aftermath of a massive nuclear war
Volcanoes are ruled out in this part of the world. And we have no literary evidences of any asteroid or comet impact during that period. However what we have is the literary evidence of a massive war that took place during that period of time – and the adverse effects on nature are described in the texts to be a result of the war itself.
Here (Chapter 22) the Vedic text also speaks of Krishna who describes the war he fought with the Salwa King who had attacked Krishna’s city Dwaraka. It is said that the Salwa King had a Vimana (aircraft) called Saubha Vimana which the king used for both travel and aerial warfare. Krishna says that:
The sound of this Salwa’s spacecraft was inaudible and this flying car made up of costly metals used to vanish creating illusion!….It was capable of going anywhere at will, bewildering my eyes, reappeared at Pragjyotisha (a nearby city). Then it suddenly drowned me with a mighty shower of rocks.
Angered by the destruction of his city Dwaraka by Salwa’s aircraft, Krishna then decides to destroy it completely and brings out his favorite weapon which he describes as
“…the weapon of fire, blazing and of celestial origin, of irresistible force, and incapable of being baffled, bursting with energy, capable of penetrating into anything and everything.”
For almost 20 years I have investigated the claims of the Hebrew Bible. I have determined that this ancient text preserved the ancient record of not only the traditional biblical period but the facts of earth’s pre-history of a by-gone age that was destroyed in a cataclysm which ended the highly advanced society of the pre-flood world. Many of the archeological sites and discoveries which prove this have been closed off or hidden away from prying eyes to obfuscate the truth of our once glorious yet tragic past.
