Libya: When the impossible became possible - The Cafe Had anyone argued in early 2011 that Libyan "Brother Leader" Muammar Gaddafi would soon be forced out of power, they would have been labeled dreamers at best, insane at worst. But that is exactly what happened. In mid-February, just weeks after Gaddafi berated Tunisians for ousting Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, the Libyan people rose up to say 'enough is enough.' For 42-years they had lived at the mercy of a totally unpredictable man and his brutal regime. Risking it all, activists in the eastern city of Benghazi had planned protests for February 17, 2011. That day was the anniversary of a small uprising in the city five years before, when young people attacked the Italian consulate in Benghazi to protest the racism of Italy's foreign minister at the time, Roberto Calderoli. Little did they know that their demonstration would spawn a nationwide revolt. Long-time opposition leaders and high-level defectors formed the National Transitional Council (NTC) on February 27.

Sumerian Gods and Goddesses Sumerian Gods Is Anu holding the symbolic Holy Grail of a Bloodline he created? British Museum Nephilim, Anunnaki - Royal Bloodline - Creators "Those who from Heaven to Earth came" The Sumerian King List allegedly recorded all the rulers of Earth over 400,000 years who were said to be gods, demigods, or immortals ... or one soul playing all the roles. In Sumerian Mythology the Anunnaki were a pantheon of good and evil gods and goddesses (duality) who came to Earth to create the human race. Talismans | Kabbalah | Amulets Creating Bloodlines According to Ancient Alien Theory, the Anunnaki, and other alien groups, came to Earth and seeded the human race in many variations. Physical evidence of ancient astronauts is found throughout the planet, leading one to conclude that different races visited here at different periods in Earth's history, or the same aliens return and set up various programs (civilizations) in which they could remain and experience. These would include: Middle East, Egypt, India,

Tesla The history of technology is populated with a marvellous cast of characters. On the one hand you have the colourful, hard-working inventors like Thomas Edison who slaved away morning, noon and night to produce many of the wonders that we take for granted such as the incandescent light, the telephone, and the garlic peeler. On the other you have the moonbat crazies who show up at the patent office with a cardboard box stuffed with wires and a torch battery claiming that they've made contact with John Kerry's charisma. And then there is that rarest of creatures: Nikola Tesla, a man who was both a certifiable genius and just plain certifiable. Born in Smiljan, Croatia, Tesla was educated at Graz and Prague, worked for the Continental Edison Company in Paris, and emigrated to the United States in 1884. Composite photo of Tesla making it appear as if he's sitting serenely in a barrage of lightning. So far so good; sounds like the biography of many a successful Victorian electrical engineer.

Visible Only From Above, Mystifying 'Nazca Lines' Discovered in Mideast | Stone Wheels & Geoglyphs | Middle East Archaeology & Google Earth They stretch from Syria to Saudi Arabia, can be seen from the air but not the ground, and are virtually unknown to the public. They are the Middle East's own version of the Nazca Lines — ancient "geolyphs," or drawings, that span deserts in southern Peru — and now, thanks to new satellite-mapping technologies, and an aerial photography program in Jordan, researchers are discovering more of them than ever before. They number well into the thousands. Referred to by archaeologists as "wheels," these stone structures have a wide variety of designs, with a common one being a circle with spokes radiating inside. Researchers believe that they date back to antiquity, at least 2,000 years ago. They are often found on lava fields and range from 82 feet to 230 feet (25 meters to 70 meters) across. Kennedy's new research, which will be published in a forthcoming issue of the Journal of Archaeological Science, reveals that these wheels form part of a variety of stone landscapes.

33 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True, What Every Person Should Know… By Jonathan Elinoff Most people can’t resist getting the details on the latest conspiracy theories, no matter how far-fetched they may seem. At the same time, many people quickly denounce any conspiracy theory as untrue … and sometimes as unpatriotic or just plain ridiculous. Lets not forget all of the thousands of conspiracies out of Wall Street like Bernie Madoff and many others to commit fraud and extortion, among many crimes of conspiracy. USA Today reports that over 75% of personal ads in the paper and on craigslist are married couples posing as single for a one night affair. Conspiracy theory is a term that originally was a neutral descriptor for any claim of civil, criminal or political conspiracy. To many, conspiracy theories are just human nature. Skeptics are important in achieving an objective view of reality, however, skeptism is not the same as reinforcing the official storyline. I find it extremely odd that the assumption is on thousands of participants in a conspiracy.

The 10 Most Puzzling Ancient Artifacts The Bible tells us that God created Adam and Eve just a few thousand years ago, by some fundamentalist interpretations. Science informs us that this is mere fiction and that man is a few million years old, and that civilization just tens of thousands of years old. Could it be, however, that conventional science is just as mistaken as the Bible stories? There is a great deal of archeological evidence that the history of life on earth might be far different than what current geological and anthropological texts tell us. Consider these astonishing finds: The Grooved Spheres Over the last few decades, miners in South Africa have been digging up mysterious metal spheres.
