The forgotten people of Tahuglauk and Mozeemlek: 17th century North America

A few days ago I was looking at some older (17th-18th century) maps when two words attracted my attention. Those words were "Tahuglauk" and "Mozeemlek". Googling the words revealed that Google knows what Wikipedia does not. Surprisingly there was very little contemporary information pertaining to the topic. At the same time I found several 19th century books in Google Books. Started reading and found the information rather interesting, though there was not much of it. Tahugluak and Mozeemlek were two, apparently white, nations/tribes of Native American people.​

Bizarre transformation of the North American Continent: 16th through 19th centuries

There are many similar definitions of what a map is. This is just one of those, "A description of the earth, or some particular part thereof, projected upon a plain superficies; describing the form of countries, rivers, situation of cities, hills, woods, and other remarks." Single maps are often included within a bundle of maps comprising a geographical atlas.

We are going to look at some very old maps. The general opinion of today's scientists is that cartographers of the past were some sort of practical jokers. Here is what...

Tartary - an Empire hidden in history. It was bigger than Russia once...

"Tartary, a vast country in the northern parts of Asia, bounded by Siberia on the north and west: this is called Great Tartary. The Tartars who lie south of Muscovy and Siberia, are those of Astracan, Circassia, and Dagistan, situated north-west of the Caspian-sea; the Calmuc Tartars, who lie between Siberia and the Caspian-sea; the Usbec Tartars and Moguls, who lie north of Persia and India; and lastly, those of Tibet, who lie north-west of China." - Encyclopedia Britannica, Vol. III, Edinburgh, 1771, p. 887.

Now compare to the description given by...

Star shaped cities, towns, and forts as evidence of the unified world of the recent past

Star shaped cities, towns and fortifications are located through out the entire world. They were predominantly created prior to the 18th century. Their uniformity and style suggests the same shared architecture related educational background of their creators. These structures are located in the areas which seemingly should not share any common features. Additionally, it is important to remember that we are talking about 1600-1700s here, hence lack of just about everything we are used to enjoy today: e-mail, phone, internet, transportation, education etc.

It is very easy to dismiss this...

Could our planet Earth be one huge quarry?

"If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck" - we all heard of this so-called "duck test". It suggests that a person can identify an unknown subject by observing that subject's habitual characteristics. For open minded people, the below "habitual characteristics" could become a sanity test as well.

If we take this "duck test" into consideration, than our planet Earth is nothing but one huge giant quarry. A type of quarry where coal, copper, uranium, nickel, gold and other natural resources were mined long (or not so long)...

The obscure high-tech Stone Age "they" do not want you to know about

"The Stone Age was a time thousands of years ago, when humans lived in caves and jungles. Life was simple, and there were only two main things to do - to protect themselves from the wild animals and to gather food. It started almost with the evolution of mankind. For both purposes, people made tools from stone. The period lasted roughly 3.4 million years and ended between 8700 BCE and 2000 BCE with the advent of metalworking." - this is the official scientific version, and it appears to be reasonable enough within the traditional educational framework. At least nothing seems...

What happened to the Siberian forests 200 years ago?

  • 1,063

This is interesting how one topic leads to another. This time I came across some information about the Siberian Taiga Forests. Apparently the age of the Siberian Forests is estimated to be around or under 200 years. This is somewhat bizarre because the Siberian region was, for the most part, an uncharted territory well into the early stages of the 20th century. The lifetime of the Siberian Pine can reach up to 850 years. There are plenty of other trees out there whose lifespan is around 500-600 years. Yet the Siberian forests are...

400 year old Sahara Desert, or why people forgot everything they knew about Africa

"All right, Beatrice, there was no alien. The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus." - Kay, MIB.

I always thought that Sahara Desert was thousands of years old. Of course, the official version confirmed it in the most scientific way possible, "During the last glacial period, the Sahara was much larger than it is today, extending south beyond its current boundaries. The end of the...

1889 Post-Fire Seattle rebuild speed: 5,625 buildings in 18 months

There is something very bizarre in the history of Seattle. It is related to the Great Seattle Fire of 1889, followed by an enormous construction boom of 1889-90. This construction "on steroids" is something I would like to talk about. The numbers are really off the charts, so bear with me.

The Great Fire itself will not be the main focus of this article. The time to talk about this fiery fire destroying 120 acres of the City of Seattle, and killing exactly ZERO people will come at a later day.

Let us establish the time frame...

Possible books, weapons and musical instruments of the Giants

It appears the existence of the giants during Biblical times is generally accepted by our society. But I am not talking about Genesis 6:4, or David vs. Goliath. I am talking about the race of giants who possibly existed 200-400 years ago. The topic is clearly controversial, and entirely not supported by the so-called scientific evidence. There are multiple possible signs of the giants' existence in the very recent past. At the same time based on our dogmatic education and...
