  • Reply to: Queen Nzinga: A Ruler who Set her People Free   18 min 6 sec ago
    Comment Author: Eric Schneider

    As any violent ruler, also in Africa today, the alliance ENDS with the own clan or tribe. She for example massacred the Matamba people (who also had a Queen, in case people carry rozy colored gender glasses) and then sold 10,000+ people as slaves to the Portuguese or Dutch. She shifted alliances with the "hated invadors" as it pleased her own power interest. She was ruthless, without moral, for good reason paranoic, trusted only her own family members and at her death all her folks were replaced because the people despised them. Warring royals are always EGO no matter if clad in XX or XY chromosome bodies. In the language of their culture : possessed by demons, commiting those atrocities against life through the host body. Role model? Like Margareth Thatcher, like Madeleine Albright massacring the Iraqis and stating "100,000 dead children is worth it", like Condolezza Rice who some call "intelligent" but she was just the war hag of the centurial war criminal George Bush administration who caused A CENTURY OF GLOBAL TERROR WAR. Applause from the peanut gallery where us sane minds watch people going down in utter confusion.

    These "ancient" artifacts were dated, not using radiocarbon dating or Carbon-14 dating, but by their depth in the soil. By that measure, if your grandmother was buried 6 feet deep and dug up 5 years later, she would be dated at about 5,000 years old. These are obviously just pieces of rockets and spacecraft from the nearby launch pad, that crashed to earth, and could easily have been buried up to 50 feet deep depending on the angle and speed of the crash.

    By the way, you do realize Isaac is the son of the Egyptian Pharoah who has relations with Sarah/Sarai after being offered up by her brother/husband Abram?
    And that neither Abram nor Sarai ever actually existed anymore than Brahma and his sister/wife Saraswati, at least anything more than zodiacal/planetary anomalies to explain the Precession of the Equinoxes? Or that Jesus represents anything more than the same line of thinking in a man born in one more aeon to represent the age that spans 2150 years as the zodiac is broken down into its components, with 12 apostles delineating the twelve houses of the zodiac? That at least 23 fatherless males born to virgins in caves, who were crucified, died and were buried three days, preceded him?
    Satyrn was the Sun/Son of God; the literal Sun that dies for three days every December 22, 23 and 24th every single year without fail, and Jesus represented the Piscean Age that ends approx. 2150 AD.
    It's why he said he'd be around not to the end of the mistranslated world in the KJV, but to the end of the Age.

    Trained and educated along with decades of research, but common sense has helped immesely along the way. I highly recommend all the above.
    In the original Gospel of Matthew before the church revised it, the title Bar Abbas was preceded by the name Jesus in reference to James, as the title 'Son of the Father' refers to James. In other words, James (Jesus Bar Abbas) has already been arrested before Jesus is arrested himself. The Jews were given a choice between the two, and chose James as the already established leader of the Qumran (Damascus) community in Gaza. A choice between a rock and a hard place.
    Just as Is Ra El is the name for Saturn from the Phoenicians, and Abram is no less than Brahma from ancient Krishna to the Christ myth two thousand years ago, there is nothing new under the Sun/Son, but the change in names from religion to religion, and zodiacal allocations which is all the Bible is (The Helios Book), to explain the worship of Saturn as our Sun (in a binary system not peculiar in most universes), reminding that it once graced the heavens a lot closer for this EA (earth) before our planet was shot through to its present location, and Saturn became a planet on the fringe.
    As humbly as you offered the advice, I offer you the same wisdom.
    Live and learn, and you may yet pass from 'partially educated' with a book to defend to someone who knows something about it, and mught yet be a joy to behold.

    I have been reading your comments and it is obvious you have some strong feelings and sound convinced of certain 'events' that I'm not familiar with. What is the verse in Matthew that says Jesus died only for his brother? I agree with one of your observations and it is this..knowledge is key to understanding, but there are many false doctrines and being only 'partially educated' is like saying you know Karate' because you watched the 'Karate Kid' movies. I suggest you take your own advice and educate yourself..the fact is and always will be that Jesus was born to fulfill the promises given to Israel through Abraham, Issac, and Jacob..their promised Messiah. I could go on but it would take more space than is appropriate here.

    This specimen (the hands) looks pretty similar to a mummyfied hand discovered along other remains of "beings".
    The remarkable thing about the hand was that it only had the oddly long fingers with 6 limbs, heres the article on it on ancient origins.

    it's sad that it is so hard to tell weather one should be excited about this. (the believer inside wants to say yes finally the time for disclosure has come. Such a discovery related to a place like Nazcar that itself has been the center of controversy and theories in the field of ancient human origins and E.T.s is awesome.)
    On the other hand side it seems one has to stay alert not only might those discoveries be a hoax but even if this is another drop of disclosure given to us it is just that. a drop that even if it gets put into historical context by "official" people / established mainstream science its probably not going to be "the whole truth accurate".

    But I must say I find it very exciting especially in a time where several European governments have released their UFO files to the public, the leaders of the world on political and even religious levels have begun to publicly accept / open up towards the E.T. issue.
    With this general public standing and the rumous about even more upcoming disclosures - hinted at the discovery of an advanced civilisation in antartica that was lost there in the last cataclysmic event on this planet 12800 years ago - it becomes pretty clear that maybe sooner then later there will be very big changes in our understanding of us, our humanity, history and how we conduct our society right now. But if this happens we must remain vigilant and critical about everything we are told and we have to push for even more secrets to be lifted and Public research has to be done on worldwide monolithic structures.

    I will finish this comment with a momory of a book i once read (People of the World, Relax by Tom Robbins) which some of you might enjoy it actually has alot to do with Pyramids and somehow the prophecy of the Virgin Mary at Fatima which according to the book says "Ne next big revelation in a spiritual sence that will occur to humanity is going to come from the direction of a Pyramid"

    Now is the time to end Speculation, unveil the truth and connect the dots so we as a human species can really collectively evolve (and in some sonces also come back) towards cosmic and spiritual greatness.

    Neanderthals walk among us today, their unique morphology has NOT completely vanished!
    It is still observable!
    In a sense, the Geico caveman is REAL!
    No one wants to be called a neanderthal, no matter what, so BE CAREFUL!
    'They' have VERY sensitive hearing.

  • Reply to: 10th Century Forgotten City Unearthed in Ethiopia, Once Thought to be ‘Home of Giants’   1 day 14 hours ago
    Comment Author: RBJ

    Is this article about Harlaa in Eastern Ethiopia not being the home of ancient giants or is about the entire nation of Ethiopia not being the home of ancient giants ?

    Why is it so difficult for educated people to believe that giants did once live on earth ? The indigenous Ethiopian people have lived there for thousands of years and would have passed on their history and traditions to each new generation. Bones of giants have been found all over the earth, why would Ethiopia be an exception to having had giants live there ?

    Jesus Bar Abbas: Jesus (James)
    Bar Abbas: Son of the Father; a title of distinction in a religion loath to incorporate any male in such close association with God. A God they worshipped as a calf, a bull, a pig and others in many incarnations from their beginnings in India as followers of Krishna, or no thought of a Christ would ever have been borne across Kabbalistic notions.
    Learn. Be gentle among and within yourselves, but learn.

    Let's go much further: any religion that exemplfies, demands, mimics, glorifies or depicts blood sacrifices as a means to an end is the antithesis of the Christ Consciousness in every vibration of its being.
    Jesus isn't even the primeval examplary example. He died to save Jesus Bar Abbas as it was clearly delineated in the original Gospel of Matthew: he died not for the sins of the world, but for his brother, James.
    And I am here again to make sure you know, one last time.

    "which is why they're about to fall because" they were incomplete, erroneous diatribes designed to keep the masses enthralled and subjected to this dimension of thought, fueled by the energy of fear.
    Laugh. Laugh until it hurts. Laugh until this old world of spectacular hurts and illusions falls away.
    Laugh. It will never kill you.
    Religions will gladly.

    If you can remain open to this, then the world, at least the knowledge to be gleaned, will be part of the future resonating in all your realities until you no longer need them to define whom and what you are.
    You will know. You will know, because you know yourself.

    The 'break' was the break away from the worship of Saturn to our current sun/son, and nothing more.
    Religions are designed to appease the gods and goddesses who were actual planets, and there's a very old one on the way: Nibiru; causing global warming (with our help), the pole shifts, the melting of the caps and the exposure of another ancient civilization at the South Pole that's quite active, and we're about to witness an extraordinary event, which is why there are more than seven billion humans on the planet at the moment.

    We do understand that the new 'god' is the new sun after Saturn was destroyed? The same Saturn ancient petroglyhs expound upon to their hearts' content?
    That there were once two suns, and that the Earth (EA) revolved around Saturn as its sun until Saturn was destroyed, and Earth was bounced through the cosmos like a slingshot to its current position and with our current sun? That religions are based upon the ancient worship of Saturn, which is why they're about to fall as the falsehoods replacing the truth that they truly are?
    That Moses (Arabic: son of) was none other thanAkhnATON, that Abram is Brahma, and ISRAEL is Saturn from the Phoenicians?
    Time for an awakening.

Human Origins

Was the Heretic Pharaoh Akhenaton in Fact the Father of Modern Monotheism?
This passage may read like a passage from the Old Testament of the Bible; but, this is a quote from the Hymn of Aten, a work by Pharaoh Amenhotep IV better known as Akhenaton. This so-called heretic king was the only known Pharaoh in Egyptian history who believed in a monotheistic doctrine when most of the ancient world adhered to polytheism.

Ancient Technology

Left side view of the Pyramid of the Sun, Teotihuacan.
Teotihuacan’s Lost Kings, a television special, took an hour long look at the great city, its inhabitants, and the excavation of the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, (also known as the Feathered Serpent Pyramid.) The program revealed evidence of advanced engineering built into a tunnel system, and placed directly underneath the Pyramid.

Ancient Places

Entrance from above to the Loltun Cave complex
On the 3rd of January 1931, an article appeared in the Modesto News-Herald entitled ‘Mystery of the Loltun Cave hermit’. The article recounted the encounter between a man by the name of Robert Stacy-Judd and an old Mayan hermit, when the former got lost whilst exploring the Loltun Cave with several native guides.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
