Reich and Empire: the origins and true meaning

  • 119
  • 2
Аs far as English language goes, we are so used to this word being a stand alone one - REICH. Normally we relate it to the German Nazis lead by Mr. Hitler. Yet, the Roman Empire in German is Römisches Reich. Naturally, it appears to have been an interesting move to avoid calling things with...

Just like with any information, its comprehension depends on which angle you approach it from. If you are ready to accept that semi-naked Ancient Egyptians built the Pyramids using chisels and sleds, it will prevent you from considering other possibilities. Any attempts at visualization of the...

Was there a Global Flood, or a Disaster in 1860-1870?

Accidentally ran into some documents kept at the US Library of Congress, pertaining to the Port Angeles (WA) Flood of 1863. "In 1863 a great flood, such as never happened before or since, swept away most of the houses of the town and demolished the customs house. No one could figure out what...

America: origins of the word

  • 663
  • 10
I find it hard to believe that just like that, humongous honors of having two continents named after him, were awarded to some semi-merchant individual. At the times, when other discoverers were paying respect to their Kings and Queens by naming tiny islands in their honor, this Americus...

Vikings, Erik the Red and Eric VI the King of Sweden

I don't know, may be this parallel has been drawn before. I did not search for whether it was or not. Somehow, I ended up reading about Vikings. Considering that our official history cannot be trusted, I was trying to figure out how the Norse seafarers were coexisting with other Scandinavian...

Pyramids with tombs of the Tartarian Kings?

  • 1,521
  • 7
I am not quite sure what I spotted here, but there it is. No clue why the word "Sepulcres" is being used. It means "Tombs" when translated from the Catalan language. Essentially we end up with: Mount Alchai where the Tombs are of the Kings of Tartary. This is the North-East of contemporary...

Outer Space - what is it?

  • 1,476
  • 25
I have my doubts that "Space" exists in its conventional form. From day one we are being fed the traditional narrative filled with planets, orbits, stars, galaxies, etc. What's there to doubt? Just look up. But... how do we know what those objects above us really are? For example, how do we know...

Was Jules Verne's Nautilus based on a real submarine?

Here, M. Aronnax, are the several dimensions of the boat you are in. It is an elongated cylinder with conical ends. It is very like a cigar in shape, a shape already adopted in London in several constructions of the same sort. The length of this cylinder, from stem to stern, is exactly 232 feet...

Subterrene Vehicles Traveling Underground: Past and Present

  • 858
  • 20
Subterrene is a vehicle that travels underground (through solid rock/soil) much as a submarine travels underwater, either by mechanical drilling, or by melting its way forward. Subterrenes existed first in fiction as mechanical drillers, with real-world thermal designs and examples following in...

Foundlings and the Orphan Trains: video by CONSPIRACY-R-US

The Orphan Train Movement was a supervised welfare program that transported orphaned and homeless children from crowded Eastern cities of the United States to foster homes located largely in rural areas of the Midwest. The orphan trains operated between 1854 and 1929, relocating about 200,000...

19th century compressed air cars and street cars: gone and forgotten

  • 2,869

This is actually some fun stuff folks. 150 years ago people could have been getting around by driving compressed air powered personal cars, and were boarding compressed air powered modes of public transportation. We are so duped into our internal combustion engines, that it is both sad and...

Nuclear Weapons: do they exist or not?

The Emperor Deterrence may have no clothes, but he is still Emperor. Despite his nakedness, this emperor continues to strut about, receiving deference he doesn’t deserve, while endangering the entire world. Nuclear deterrence is an idea that became a potentially lethal ideology, one that remains...

19th Century: Tunnel Boring Machines, Frederick Beaumont, Second Industrial Revolution

  • 1,080

Could the Second Industrial Revolution (1850-1914) be the process of legitimizing multiple pre-existing technological achievements? If you know an Officer serving in the Military Corps of Engineers, ask that Officer to design a machine similar to the one presented in this thread. If that Officer...

Giants Of Egypt, Chaldea, Syria, Babylonia, and Assyria

I was just gonna post a few images of several huge individuals but, as usually, ran into an issue with the alleged author of the books pertaining to the images of the Ancient Giants. The offered sketches displaying abnormal size humans are allegedly from the 1903 edition of "History of Egypt...

There is this Volga-Don canal in Russia. It connects the Volga river with the Don river. It was officially built between 1948 and 1952. Technically the construction started before 1941, but it was interrupted by the Second World War. The length of the waterway is 63 mi, with 28 mi through rivers...

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

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...

Norumbega: Washington Monument and the Roman Empire

  • 1,801

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...

Tartarian City of Norumbega was conquered to become Washington, DC

  • 1,835
  • 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...
