    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...

    Polish Crimea shaped one dollar coin with Elizabeth II and Niue Island

    Well, let’s try and work this out. It is a very odd coin, that’s for sure. To address some concerns that I saw on a certain doppelgänger website, I also cannot figure out how to verify this came from the Polish mint. This Russian language site seems to get as close as I can find and if anything...

    America in Asia: 1827 State of Nations Map

    With respect to the thought that North America was or is a part of Asia, I wonder again, as I often do with placenames and designations, whether we are missing some context. Everyone knows that America was allegedly named for Amerigo Vespucci, but I’d imagine less know where “Amerigo” is...

    1662: 17 hour Tartarian Muscovy Clock

    Thank you for this. This explanation makes sense and jives with a couple other sources I’ve found about older timekeeping practices. It does seem like a logical progression from sundials. I want to try and remember to come back to this subject later, as I think there’s a lot more to be...

    Time Zones: Tin City, US vs Naukan, Russia

    So JonLevi discussed this timezone issue in his recent video, starting at 11 minutes: Not to pick on Jon, I enjoy a lot of his work and to be clear, he’s citing another video, but it drives me a little bit crazy when these little pieces of “information” seem to make the rounds on YouTube...

    79 A.D. no more: Pompeii got buried in 1631

    Yes, heh. I saw that one too when looking at the relief and almost included it. According to wiki, that one dates to 1669 or 1673. Which if we take at face value, means that the modern image of antiquity was already in place by then, more or less. In fact, this is all seems to track if you...

    79 A.D. no more: Pompeii got buried in 1631

    Have y'all actually seen this thing? source Based on their clothing, when is this? Alexander (on the left) looks maybe like we'd expect, but the rest of the bunch, especially the King of the Persians, Darius III, (highest on the right) is looking pretty medieval, if you ask me. I think it...

    19th Century: The Boynton Bicycle Railroad

    Here you go: It is indeed ALWEG: Alweg, the original system Looking up the Fühlingen test track, I was able to find this much higher quality version picture of the monorail train. It looks like it's in a slightly different location from the picture in the video, but seems like both could...

    Book | 1904: The Giants

    Heh, some episodes but had to look up what you’re talking about. The whole thing is creepy. I guess that is what a snake skeleton looks like, I honestly had never really thought about it. Obviously connection to DNA here. Wonder what our artist was trying to convey... Looking briefly, this...
