    Question | Year 2030: what are they hiding?

    Heh, it’s exactly that which caused me to try and really carefully select my words. To get a model the size of his, I have no doubt at all that it involved countless hours of research. And a lot of it sounds accurate too. I’m sure there’s a lot of value there, but to me it’s just like a color...

    Question | Year 2030: what are they hiding?

    This is starting to give me some heartburn and I’m running out of ways to say I simply don’t agree with this methodology. It’s sloppy and selective. He keeps talking about these 138 year cycles for releasing technology but also says he’s looking for examples from 1901-1903. So it’s precise...

    Question | Year 2030: what are they hiding?

    In reality or in our artificial isolated system? Or both, I suppose, because it’s a copy? I tend to agree with his last statement there anyway. I asked earlier how many books and videos I’d have to consume to get the point. And yes, I’ve been probably too dismissive and snarky throughout, but...

    Question | Year 2030: what are they hiding?

    I appreciate your interest in furthering this discussion, but I’m not really sure this is going to go anywhere. I’ve found that a lot of people like to debate specifics in a range of topics and are unsure how to handle a criticism of the overall premise. And certainly, that makes sense to a...

    Question | Year 2030: what are they hiding?

    That's exactly my problem though, who is validating these dates? Here's a passage at 27:15 that sort of illustrates my problem: To me, the one of the most important parts of any of this research is sharing how we arrive at certain dates. There's no shortage of articles on this website and...

    Question | Year 2030: what are they hiding?

    To clarify, I wasn’t accusing him of pushing back a date from 2012, simply drawing a comparison between those doomsday soothsayers and his prediction of 2040 being a key date (as opposed to 2030). Mostly being snarky and as you note, perhaps unfairly as I never really dove into his body of work...

    Acropolis aka Necropolis, Schliemann and 1877 Cremation Temple

    There’s a ton of good information in this article, I’m glad KD bumped it back up. Not to go all fanboy here, but I’ve said it to others in KD’s absence so I might as well say it outright, the work this man has put into his research while still staying pretty damn objective is perhaps...

    Question | Year 2030: what are they hiding?

    Smart to push it out ten more years, that’s a lot more book sales. Although it always comes faster than you’d like, many are still bathing in the tears of 2012 failed prophecies. I admit I may be too cynical and maybe this guy’s research is superb. Though looking through his website, he seems...

    Question | Year 2030: what are they hiding?

    I hadn’t seen that before but looks like it’s cribbing from a variety of older materials, like the alleged “channeled” Council of Nine and/or Ra Law of One, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, this book on the Illuminati that the CIA helpfully posts, etc, etc. There is an endless rabbit hole of...

    Question | Year 2030: what are they hiding?

    I don’t know how one sorts the wheat from the chaff in this conversation. And perhaps that even applies to those who have more occulted knowledge than the rest of us. Not that I’m much of a Bible literalist, but this pops into mind: Matthew 24 BSB Maybe being a literalist here is useful...

    1200s Old London Bridge: what do we know?

    Lots of threads to pull on here, but let's focus on this image. I was able to source it to a 1916 book called London: Past and Present by Malcolm Salaman (images start on page 44) and it offers an answer to the question of "drawing or photo"... sort of. Seems to be a mixture of both! Seems...

    Dinosaurs on the 1562 painting of Pieter Bruegel the Elder?

    Right, as I said above too, this painting is quite small so those people are not much more than a few brushstrokes. So the “dinosaurs” could be a lot of things… I had dismissed elephants at first, but I do wonder if they could be, with their trucks raised. On the other hand, maybe I shouldn’t...

    Dinosaurs on the 1562 painting of Pieter Bruegel the Elder?

    Fascinating! Bumping this just because I’ve never seen it and maybe someone out there can give me an explanation of what is going on here. I am going to watch this video below though and maybe they have some insights. Doubting that they’ll address the Definitely Not An Elephant in the room...

    Stars, Galaxies, Planets: how do we know what they are?

    I don’t think any of the space fraud motivation conversation has an easy answer. Sure is easier to poke holes in the narrative, as you aptly do in your post and in countless other examples that are mostly handwaved away (though the true believers will write their own fan fiction to fix...

    Stars, Galaxies, Planets: how do we know what they are?

    I mostly loved this post for the plum. That’s a fantastic universe that you can hold in the palm of your hand! The rest of why I loved this is that talking about this subject is something that could use some of that “normalization” I hear about. It is not radical or foolish in anyway to...
