    Actually, not saying I agree or disagree with the idea of these "orbs", space debris does and can not cover all of these cases. Even scientist admit they don't. Actually, the tether case itself is a good example. if it had been debris, it would not all be the same shape. Claiming the lack of a atmosphere means you can tell distance isn't entirely right. Objects will still seem smaller the farther away they are because of how you actually see something....reflected light, nothing to do with a atmosphere. That just doesn't make sense. And when objects are observed changing directions, not the tether case but others, that is impossible in space without a propulsion system of some type.

    THE DENDERA LIGHTS or Ancient Sandblaster

    Yes. There the Giants of Dendera stone reliefs that can be seen in the Hathor Temple 300 miles south of Cairo, Egypt. Some researchers’ claim that these images depict an ancient form lighting system. Egyptologists think that they are carvings that represent aspects of Egyptian mythology and actual show the birthing of a snake from a lotus flower. However, both of these theories are wrong. They are ancient sandblaster used to carve and surface stone. Did you know that an artist with a sandblaster can carve a crystal skull in about three days and leave no tool marks? The link below tells the rest of the story.

    Moving THE BAALBEK MEGALITHS the Dam easy way.

    Located at Baalbek in Lebanon are the largest megalithic stones ever carved from the solid rock of a quarry. It seems that thousands of years ago they were shaped into gigantic rectangles and moved over a kilometer.

    The precision with which these megaliths have been carved is incredible and it is nearly impossible for modern Egyptologist to conceive of a way to do it today. How they were moved and placed within the construction of the greater Baal-Jupiter (Zeus) Temple plaza is now explained they did it like the Egyptians did.. The links below tells the rest of the story.

    THE BAGHDAD BATTERY or Alchemist Tool

    These strange artifacts were originally discovered in 1936 during an archaeological dig near Baghdad. A small jug which was 6 inches in height and contained a copper cylinder and within this was suspended an iron rod. Wilhelm Konig found one in the basement of the National Museum of Iraq. He published a paper that suggested that these ancient for plating with precious gold onto silver. Konig thought that an electrical system was used: wrong. Oh you can contrive a very small electrical current with a weak acid.

    But there a far better and much faster system of plating that can be done with the same components. It is call amalgamation. Simple, coat your copper with quicksilver, add a small amount of classified sand with micro-fine gold in to the jug ( pay the shipping and I will send you some sand with two cents of gold in it ) add water attach your wires to the mercury clad copper and plug. Shake well every hour for two days and all the micro-fine gold will then be on the copper cylinder and look solid gold with two cents of Gold . However, I do it with a copper, gold pan . The link below tells the rest of the story.

    You would think that the good folks at NASA would have commented on all those "UFOs", but they didn't because all that stuff flying around the tether is satellites & space junk. The distances are illusion as there is no atmosphere. There are literally thousands of things flying around your planet right now - quite terrestrial in origin.

    Where the F are the photos to support this story?? the FIRST thing that should be done or should have been done is secure photographic evidence, everyone has a cell phone with the capacity for taking photos, there is no reason an article like this should be put out without also providing photographic evidence of the so called find and burial site etc.Common sense especially if you don't want the information to be buried. Until then this story is a joke.

    This whole Columbia 'orb' phenomena is debunked already a long time ago. It's exactly what the radio-operater says: 'just debris' coming from the Space Shuttle. The fact that it seems to fly behind the tether is an illusion of the video recordings. I've seen videos of experiments where they very easilly can reproduce that. Don't waste your time researching that. Things aren't always what they seem.

    I think all your arguments are out in left field. Let me "suggest" a new and old perception of the Celtic Lands and their ancient origins i.e., the Tuatha De Danann: see two books, A) "Gods and fighting men..." by Lady Augustus Gregory: and B) "The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries," by Y.W. Evans-Wentz, doctor thesis, Oxford, 1911, see 1981 reprint. In other words, the Celtic Lands are all about the Unseen Universe---long story for another day.

    Happy Holidays,

    Sweet jumping Jesus, the Vehling translation is the crappiest translation, go for the Flowers and Rosenbaum translation. Much more accurate, and the 'recipes' aren't screwed up by being modernized for popular taste.

    Actually, he skippedclass that day, and he and his friends concocted that story to tell their parents when they asked how was school today. Unfortunately, they had asked the class dunce what happened in school.

    ledom Said: I was attempting to get more involved. Each letter of the Hebrew alphabet has a specific meaning. I was attempting to related that meaning through the corresponding old testament story of a constellation that in turn resembled the letter.


    H. West: I never thought of a connection from the stars of the heavens to the Hebrew Alf-Bet. I knew the stars of the heavens were once called the “Way” or the Guide. With the 12 tribes symbolizing the zodiacal constellations and “The Battle for the Control of Mankind” in the Northern Horizon circle.


    I, therefore, took a different “tack” to my conclusions. Both the Hebrew and Greek alphabets have the same order as the northern Semite alphabet of the Hittites, the Greek and Hebrew alphabets also mirror the early Ugaritic Cuneiform symbol because they were all alphanumeric/ heliographic codes.


    These alphabets allowed the most used letters to have the simplest symbol that corresponds to 1, 5, 10, 2, 4, 6, 9, 50 and 100. Here is the kicker; the message or text being copied could be totaled, so that when it was received a line cipher was given with the numeric total of the message or line by line, therefore, if the totals did not match up? The mismatch allowed the error to be discovered and allowed message be re-sent or corrected. There are at least two places where this principle is still used, first with Hebrew text scribes and computer code writing so that the errors in the written code can be found if the computer or software has a malfunction and which allows the line cipher to locate where the error is so that error can be fixed. It is a long story, therefore here are a few blog links to my conclusions.

    To me, it’s silly to report a find to anyone if it’s on my property.  If I searched someone else’s property at their request, I’d report a find to them, naturally, but not to any “official”.

    “He turned the find over”


      Why would anyone do that?  I could understand letting a property owner know of the find if it were found on property belonging to someone besides the finder.

    Comment Author: Gregg Stanley

    You suggested that Siberia was somehow more temperate than North America since it had less ice. I don't think the amount of ice in an area establishes temperatures. Perhaps North America simply had more precipitation than Siberia. Or, and this is less likely, Siberia had summers that were warmer allowing more ice to melt.


Our Mission

Ancient Origins seeks to uncover, what we believe, is one of the most important pieces of knowledge we can acquire as human beings – our beginnings.

While many believe that we already hold such knowledge, our view is that there still exists a multitude of anomalies and mysteries in humanity's past that deserve further examination.

We therefore wish to foster an open community that is dedicated to investigating, understanding and explaining the origins of our species on planet earth. To this end, we aim to organize, support and even finance efforts in this direction.

Our aim is to move beyond theories and to present a thorough examination of current research and evidence and to offer alternative viewpoints and explanations to those currently held by mainstream science and archaeology.

Come with us on a journey to explore lost civilisations, sacred writings, ancient places, unexplained artefacts and scientific mysteries while we seek to reconstruct and retell the story of our beginnings.
