crankiest Genesis 6 Giants 2002 Nov 16
     ... history . archaeology . religion ...
"Stretch your mind back to childhood. What giants do you remember? Jack and the Beanstalk? Hercules? Paul Bunyan? Goliath? What were you told and what did you read? With the exception of Goliath and an occasional ornery cyclops, legends emphasized their innate goodness, eye-popping feats accomplished with unparalleled strength, victories over the bad guys and all performed by 'gentle giants'. What if it were all a lie? What if the truth were something much, much more sinister? I have invested over 30 years researching the vast history of giants. It has, for the most part, been kept from the public. Proof of giants' existence -- their skeletal remains - has been quickly secreted away in obscure museums, when not destroyed. Additionally, time has cloaked and sugar-coated these creatures' true perverse nature, the majority too vile, too demonic for bedtime stories. However, history is replete with their tales of unimaginable cruelty, sexual perversity, cannibalism and pagan rituals. This is only the beginning. Some things are best forgotten ... or are they?"

crankiest Sphinx Stargate 2002 Aug 15
     ... catastrophism . archaeology . astrology . Egyptology . prophecy ...
"At the closing of the last ice age our ancient ancestors endured one of the most lethal global catastrophes to have occurred in the course of human history. Intelligent minds of those times thought it imperative to construct a message that would endure through time and be understood by the descendants of those who survived. Employing sophisticated cryptographic puzzle techniques similar to those modern astronomers use in designing extraterrestrial communications, they created a time capsule message that described the elusive celestial cause of this tragic disaster, alerting us that it could recur at long intervals and arrive at Earth's doorstep virtually without warning. This ancient cipher is today displayed in the heavens in the form of the 12 zodiac constellations (Greek / Egyptian / Babylonian versions), its informational content having been passed down orally in the lore of astrology. Also certain esoteric keys were handed down to help unlock its message, the Sphinx being one and the Tarot being the other."

     ... Martians . archaeology . extraterrestrials ...
"It is my belief that Mars was once a beautiful, fertile planet capable of sustaining life, much like our own, until some cataclysmic, global event changed everything. I believe that the survivors went searching for another planet, on which to live, and that they chose the Earth. We are their descendants. They were an advanced civilization who brought their technology with them. Upon reaching Earth, they proceeded to build the same type structures that were familiar to them on Mars. That way, if there were more survivors they'd recognize the structures and know where the others were."

anti In the Hall of Ma'At 2001 Aug 11
     ... skepticism . archaeology . Egyptology . history ...
"To the ancient Egyptians ma'at was a concept of truth, justice and balance. This web site is put forth in that spirit. The aim of this site is to provide a well reasoned case for the mainstream version of ancient history. We will present articles that validate our true heritage and that dispute the proposals used to support the belief in a lost civilization that seeded the familiar ancient cultures of the world. ... History cannot be written on the basis of possibilities supported by evidence that may, or may not, turn up at some future time; rather, we are convinced that it must be based on material which is present, checkable, and verifiable or falsifiable. It is therefore essential that people seeking to challenge mainstream theories provide verifiable scientific evidence in support of their claim."

anti "Fringe" or "Cult" Archaeology 2001 Aug 11
     ... archaeology ...
"Why pay it any attention? Because it's very popular. Books claiming that space aliens built ziggurats in Mesopotamia, that the Sphinx was carved by refugees from Atlantis or that the hills are alive with mysterious Earth Energies sell many times more than more ?conventional? accounts of the past. These sorts of beliefs have entered the popular consciousness and deserve to be addressed. Some of these may contain valuable ideas about the past that archaeologists can learn from; others are plainly nonsense and can be refuted by anyone with an open mind. How do we deal with it? At the risk of quoting Tony Blair, it has to be education, education, education. ..."

"When we consider dating the Sphinx outside of the traditional framework, the questions of merit come down to these. What were the traditions? What was the culture? What were the geographics? What fits, and what doesn't? This poetic series on 'The Age of the Sphinx' will answer these questions, and it'll set the date back 30 000 years."

     ... archaeology . Egyptology ...
"In my view the possibility of a serious 'black hole' in scientific knowledge about recent prehistory is plausible, reasonable and worthy of consideration. I therefore propose that the conclusions of modern archaeology regarding the origins and early evolution of human civilisation should be treated as provisional until a comprehensive, global, marine-archaeological survey of continental shelves down to depths of at least 120 metres has been undertaken."

cranky Dark Star Theory 2000 Oct 01
     ... archaeology . astronomy . catastrophism . Nibiru ...
"In a nut-shell, this theory postulates that the Sumerian civilisation's description of a planet in an elliptical orbit around the Sun has a basis in reality. Certain astronomical papers have been published pin-pointing its presence in the Oort Cloud. Contrary to the previously held beliefs that Nibiru is a terrestrial world, it can be shown that it is, in fact, a failed star, known as a brown dwarf. This Dark Companion of the Sun has its own planetary system, home to the 'gods' of the ancient world. Building upon the scientific and mythological foundations of the Dark Star Theory, I have offered detailed, and radical, new evidence that its last appearance in the planetary solar system was in the guise of the Messianic Star, heralding the advent of Christ."
