The life of Genghis Khan: work of fiction

  • 133
  • 2
The Secret History of the Mongols by Mongolian nationalist Baavuday Tsend Gun is History's greatest con job. It is a total work of fiction passed off as fact by dishonest historians. The Secret history of the Mongols describes Genghis Khan's life or Temujin as he sometimes known in great detail...

Pharaohs Never Existed

I recently read a book which I purchased from Amazon called Egypt Knew No Pharaohs (2015). It is similar to the works of Dr Fomenko in that it challenges commonly held assumptions about historical events based on the reexamination of primary sources. Unlike the New Chronology, however, Dr Ezzat...

Annihilated African cities, killed population, establishment lies and the Richat Structure Atlantis

  • 1,736

This thread is a sort of buildup on the already existing thread: 400 year old Sahara Desert, or why people forgot everything they knew about Africa. Influenced by the recent publicity related to the ancient lost city of Atlantis being located in Africa, I took a hard look at quite a few of the...

KD mentioned mythological artwork from the 15th century compared to "realism" of 16th century art so, of course, I had to check it out. What I found was mostly religiously themed artworks but some of the paintings were beyond bizarre. A 15th century selection for your viewing enjoyment follows.

Paintings: A Winter's Mystery

I picked up on a very quick thought mentioned by LifeKreationz about winter. He was talking about how Conspiracy-R-Us did a great video on Waste Management and The Great Stink. Both guys talk about how these massive palaces had both no heating and no plumbing. So... where are the earliest...

Thoth Hermes Trismegistus: As Above, So Below

  • 656
  • 18
The concept was first laid out in the Emerald Tablet of Thoth Hermes Trismegistus, "That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing." We know there was a world-wide civilization. The...

Norumbega: Washington Monument and the Roman Empire

First of all, the Washington Monument everyone knows, is not the first Washington Monument out there. The true "First" was built in 1829 in Boonsboro, Maryland. This MD Washington Monument is located 52.6 miles North-West from the main Washington, DC one. I understand that Boonsboro is not DC...

Theory: enigma of the demolition of America's past

  • 645
  • 7
This topic has been intriguing to me but also dreadful as I continue to get an overwhelming feeling of the dark truth. My theory is this...We are aware that prior to the invasion of the British, the majority of America was split between indigenous people, Spanish, and French (primarily). They...

Tartarian City of Norumbega was conquered to become Washington, DC

  • 1,008
  • 8
Had a chance to sleep on this entire topic. I think the area named Nurumbega could be a part of the Tartarian Union with the city visited by David Ingram being the City of Bega, or the City of Nurumbega. Was the city actually named Nurumbega? I do not know, could be either way. The City of Bega...

Smithsonian: Suppressed Archaeological Finds

James Smithson, an ENGLISH scientist bequeathed today's equivalent of half a million dollars in 1829 to the U.S. "for the advancement and diffusion of knowledge." Congress, as is their custom, promptly invested in some bad financial deals in Arkansas (of all places) and lost the whole wad. John...

Legendary city of Norumbega: could it be Washington, DC?

I'm gonna attempt to tackle this Norumbega, a.k.a city of Bega, Nurumberg, Nurumbega, Nurembega, Norobega, Oranbega legend. There are quite a few fascinating occurrences related to this so-called "legendary settlement" located in the northeastern part of North America. Reading the official...

The Fossil Forest of Yellowstone

  • 396
  • 6
I think this really can illustrate a point in regard to the age of things and petrification and fossilization of wood, wood buildings too of course. And now I do wonder what the effect would be on concrete or hard stone structures. Maybe all we have to do is look at "rock cut" remains of...

King George wins the Revolutionary War

  • 731
  • 15
Check out the alleged text of the Treaty of Peace signed in Paris in 1783. If one reads it, one may notice something peculiar: the alleged loser of the war is dictating the terms of peace. Since when can a loser tell the victor what to do? The Treaty of Paris, signed in Paris by representatives...

Came across an interesting book published by Harper & Brothers in New York in 1877. It is titled - Peru. Incidents of travel and exploration in the land of the Incas, and was authored by Ephraim George Squier. The book contains some fairly interesting images of various structures observed by the...

Sanitation, soils and sewers.

  • 802
  • 21
Dodgy subject as a first public post perhaps, but it's been bothering me that the lack of toilets in Versailles, and sanitation under cities of the 1800's etc. is still not covered. There IS an explanation of sorts. It would be wrong to focus on the toilet of times past as a single subject...

Jerusalem on the Catalan Atlas by Cresques vs Santo Sepulcro by Anonymous

  • 463
  • 6
Just wanted to point out an interesting difference on virtually similar 14th century maps. It is easy to dismiss little things like that, but remember that "devil is in the details." The maps I'm talking about are famous Catalan portolan type depictions of the Earth. The primary purpose of these...

1878-1884 Photography in Motion

While looking for some other things today I ran across this and thought I'd share it in this thread. Since we are talking about blurry motion etc., and the quality of pictures. Wallace G. Levison photos are really fantastic. Photographs snapped amid the hustling crowds of Manhattan and the...

The Raising of Chicago in 1850s

  • 1,472

It was found necessary, at an early period in the history of Chicago, to raise the grade of the streets. It was afterward found necessary to raise the grade still higher, and again still higher - as each building is erected, its foundation and the sidewalk adjoining have been made to correspond...
