Asteroid to threaten Earth in 2013 By the Counter Intelligence Agency with Gordon Duff “The asteroid, known as DA14, will pass by our planet in February 2013 at a distance of under 27,000 km (16,700 miles). This is closer than the geosynchronous orbit of some satellites. There is a possibility the asteroid will collide with Earth, but further calculation is required to estimate the potential threat and work out how to avert possible disaster, NASA expert Dr. David Dunham told students at Moscow’s University of Electronics and Mathematics (MIEM).” Editor: The story below is based on NASA data available to the public, news stories released early last year but later suppressed and private reports from sources within NASA and the intelligence community. Please note the totally lame responses to the video below. The article below was submitted at my request by the European Counter Intelligence Agency in response to an interrogatory involving a “leak” received by Veterans Today.

History in the Remaking - Temple complex in Turkey that predates pyramids rewriting story of human evolution By Patrick Symmes | Newsweek.com They call it potbelly hill, after the soft, round contour of this final lookout in southeastern Turkey. To the north are forested mountains. East of the hill lies the biblical plain of Harran, and to the south is the Syrian border, visible 20 miles away, pointing toward the ancient lands of Mesopotamia and the Fertile Crescent, the region that gave rise to human civilization. Standing on the hill at dawn, overseeing a team of 40 Kurdish diggers, the German-born archeologist waves a hand over his discovery here, a revolution in the story of human origins. Göbekli Tepe—the name in Turkish for "potbelly hill"—lays art and religion squarely at the start of that journey. Though not as large as Stonehenge—the biggest circle is 30 yards across, the tallest pillars 17 feet high—the ruins are astonishing in number. The new discoveries are finally beginning to reshape the slow-moving consensus of archeology. Video from: YouTube.com Article from: Newsweek.com

Grimm's Fairy Tales This book contains 209 tales collected by the brothers Grimm. The exact print source is unknown. The etext appears to be based on the translation by Margaret Hunt called Grimm's Household Tales, but it is not identical to her edition. The etext received by the Universal Library did not include story titles. Note that these tales are presented more or less as the Grimms collected and edited them (and as Hunt saw fit to translate them). NEW: There is now a more accurate version of the Hunt translation posted by William Barker. The Mysterious Tarim Mummies Hidden behind the Himalaya and Karakoram mountain ranges and nestled between the Kunlun and Tien Shan ranges is the vast Tarim Basin, one of the hottest, driest deserts in the world. Yet it is here that one of the most outstanding anthropological finds of the 20th century was discovered. Over the past several years, Chinese archaeologists have dug up 100 or so Caucasiod mummies from the parched sands of the Täklimakan desert. The bodies date to between 2000 BC and 300 BC. Their corpses and attire are in remarkably good condition due to the arid environment, providing a unique glimpse into the prehistoric society that settled the Tarim Basin some four thousand years ago. Who were these ancient Caucasian residents of a remote area of the world that would later become part of the Silk Road? Chinese texts of the second century BC mention troublesome "barbarians" called the Yuezhi and the Wusun livng on China's far western borders. Many controversies have arisen. Sources J.P.

Top 10 Lesser Known Mysteries Mysteries It was Einstein that said ‘The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. The Brentford area of London is a peculiar place in terms of the names. There have been no other sightings since, and the Legendary Griffin has drifted into local folklore. Amphibians in Ancient Iraq In ancient Mesopotamia, the world’s first academically ratified, fully functioning civilizations of Babylon, Sumer and Akkadia emerged. A Sumerian priest named Berossus recorded how an amphibian, named Oannes, emerged from the Persian Gulf and taught the Sumerians numbers, medicine, astronomy, politics, ethics and law, encompassing all the necessities for civilized existence. In the district of Dowa, 100km north of the nation’s capital, Lilongwe, reports emerged of a rabid animal, with hyena like features, attacking and mauling members of the region. Those who saw the animal dismissed claims it was a Hyena, due to its large hind legs.

James Oberg's Pioneering Space How to Prove You're an Alien by James E. Oberg (appeared on OMNI magazine home page, 1998) The alien visitor to the new world was faced with the challenging task of convincing the natives of his superiority. He made the heavenly bodies obey him, and thus made his point. The visitor was Christopher Columbus, and the astronomical knowledge that convinced the Carib tribesmen he possessed superior powers was the prediction of a lunar eclipse. This seemingly advanced knowledge helped Columbus achieve his goal: Extorting provisions from natives on the island of Jamaica, where he was temporarily shipwrecked. Half a millennium later, the "New World" explored by Columbus is supposedly the subject of fresh visitations by a new variety of aliens, this time from distant worlds in space, time, or dimensional reference. How, then, can they establish their bona fides as tangible, matter-based alien visitors instead of mirages, fantasies, tall tales, pranks, or confabulations in the minds of man?

Ancient Maps The Piri Reis Map The Piri Reis Map, which is a genuine document, not a hoax of any kind, was made at Constantinople in 1513 CE. It focuses on the western coast of Africa, the eastern coast of South America, and the northern coast of Antarctica. Piri Reis could not have acquired his information on this latter region from contemporary explorers because Antarctica remained undiscovered until 1818 CE, more than 300 years after he drew the map. In other words, the true enigma of this 1513 map is not so much its inclusion of a continent that was not discovered until 1818 but rather its portrayal of part of the coastline of that continent under ice-free conditions that came to an end 6,000 years ago and that have not since recurred. How can this be explained? Piri Reis did not venture any suggestion as to the identity of the cartographers who had produced the earlier maps. "It appears" [he concluded] "that accurate information has been passed down from people to people. As the baffled Lt.

History of the Illuminati The Illuminati trace their origins back thousands of years to their conception as a result of the genetic inbreeding between a reptilian extraterrestrial race and humanity. Their modern origin, however, traces back to the 1760s and a man named Adam Weishaupt, who defected from the Catholic church and organized the Illuminati, financed by the International Bankers. Since then, according to the Illuminati, their top goal has been to achieve a “one world government” and to subjugate all religions and governments in the process. The Illuminati thus attribute all wars since the French Revolution as having been fomented by them in their pursuit of their goals. Weishaupt wrote out a master plan in the 1770s outlining the Illuminati’s goals, finishing on May 1, 1776. According to the Illuminati, this great day is still commemorated by Communist nations in the form of May Day. Their short-term plan foiled, the Illuminati adopted a different strategy.

The Yosemite Mummies | | Greater AncestorsGreater Ancestors The “Yosemite Mummies” Photo from Ripley’s Believe it or Not who currently host the mummies. The Giants of Yosemite Valley By Bobbie Short The year, 1885. In California’s great Yosemite Valley under the misty expanse near Bridal-Veil Falls, a party of silver and wannabe gold miners discovered what was to become the mystery of the decade. While having lunch, Mr. Seasoned miners, they were familiar with the natural formation of rock, this particular grouping struck Mr. The miners set about removing the pile of stones. “As pretty as any wall on any building that I have ever seen” is the way one miner described it. Disappointment fell heavily upon their heads as, in the end, they found the vault empty save a very large mummified corpse that lay on the ledge, which was carved from the natural stone for the express purpose of burial. The miners removed parts of the animal skins to view the corpse and found it to be that of a woman holding a child to her breast. In an additional excerpt, Capt.

The Mystery of Viracocha in the Ancient Americas | Otherworld Mystery What are countless carved images of a bearded man with European facial features doing in pre-Columbian art and architecture? Like the Olmec statues of Central America, whose giant heads depict seemingly “African” features, the Incan carvings of a figure known as Viracocha seem out of place (and time), at least according to accepted history. The Olmec Heads History teaches us that Columbus “discovered” the New World, and that the subsequent explorers and conquistadors were the first “white” men to visit the Americas. To explore the mystery of Viracocha, we will analyze these puzzling artifacts, drawing from the Incan legends and the monuments themselves, while also comparing Viracocha to other pre-Columbian figures who display striking similarities. The Stones In several ancient Incan (or pre-Incan) sacred sites, such as Tiwanaku and Puma Punku, you will find images of a man quite different from the rest.

Mystical, Magical & Magnificent Monasteries in Meteora (20 Pics) The caves in Meteora, Greece, had inhabitants for fifty millennia, but due to raids, “hermit monks” moved to the safety of sandstone rock pinnacles in the 9th century and began building monasteries. More monks and nuns came, building more monasteries perched high upon the cliffs. Wikipedia reports, “Access to the monasteries was originally (and deliberately) difficult, requiring either long ladders lashed together or large nets used to haul up both goods and people. This required quite a leap of faith — the ropes were replaced, so the story goes, only ‘when the Lord let them break.’” A view of Meteora monasteries in Greece. The Holy Monastery of Varlaam is the second largest monastery in Meteora, Greece. Meteora – The nunnery of Roussanou was built during the 16th century and remodeled and decorated as recently as 1560.
