    What can you do when the media, the politicians and the university conspire to deny, suppress and steal your evidence … then laugh at you as a comedy character? This happened to Val Osborn, a careful researcher for 40 years.

    The discovery of a 3,000-year-old mine and harbour on the coast of Queensland, Australia, is set to change Australian, if not world history.

    Late in 2000, ABC national radio announced that amateur historian/archaeologist Val Osborn had traced evidence of the early mining endeavours of the Phoenicians around 1000 BC.

    The discovery at Freshwater Point, near Sarina, included huge sea walls (one of them 800 meters long) of polished granite set in iron slag cement and copper slags.

    Osborn said, “I mean it’s a monstrous thing - you could put three, 200 foot ships end to end there. It’s as calm as a millpond and beautifully engineered.”

    There was also found a bell temple, Canaanite altar and a cemetery.

    Slag heaps are abundant with ancient roads, reservoirs, stone-engineered harbours and the usual petroglyphs and grave sites.

    This tends to substantiate the evidence in my two books Dead Men’s Secrets and Ark of the Covenant that Phoenicians and Egyptians visited Australia. Mediterranean expeditions came seeking minerals and exotics such as sandalwood, eucalyptus oil, gems, and so on.

    If this find is Phoenician and if it dates to about 1000 BC, then it could be further evidence pointing to voyages by the Red Sea fleet of King Solomon and Hiram of Tyre, mentioned in the Bible.

    In an interview with Gilbert Deem, editor of Truth Hunter, Val Osborn exposed the lies, deceit and stealing to which the academic world subjected his findings:

    Q. Tell us just what happened to cause this ruckus?

    A. Sarina Council requested that I give them a report on the sites. I did this and forwarded a copy to Central Queensland University.

    Q. What happened after that?

    A. Well the council was happy enough and hoped that the controversy would generate tourism as an addition to their economy. The academics however were not so happy, describing it as a ticking “political time bomb which they did not wish to be holding if it exploded.” However their curiosity brought about an investigation by a young archaeologist over five days with a $10,000 grant. He did not work with me but flatly stated initially that he did not intend to risk his career with anything apart from aboriginal history at the site. A CQU representative offered to create a museum which would house artefacts and findings but warned that they depended upon government grants for their very subsistence.

    Q. What did the CQU report reveal?

    A. It was simple enough - confined only to “fish traps and a shell midden.” No other remarks relative to European colonisation can be found in this report. I gave him a rudder pintles from a large ship followed by a second pintles found underwater at the ancient boat ramp site. Both artifacts have now vanished. No display eventuated of course. Today they deny they had been given them.

    Q. So the academics backed off?

    A. Yes. When the story broke in the media the academics closed ranks to stamp it out and denied association, however this is par for the course in research. Academia depends on government funding and naturally is subject to government censorship. A CQU representative was interviewed on the six o’clock news. He was represented as an archaeology expert when in reality he was an art history teacher.

    Q. So no contact with this university since?

    A. No. I have been officially discredited.

    Q. What about the media - did everything vanish within seven days?

    A. Less than that. It was censored within 24 hours. The council broke the story and my phone rang non- stop for 48 hours. We had to take it off the hook. Initially I had calls from around the world and the ABC rang for brief interviews until the discrediting on the six o’clock news and from that point on I was relegated to comedy sessions. This is the usual method to reestablish political correctness.

    Q. And the newspapers?

    A. A reporter and photographer flew in and did a full coverage of one site which was supposed to run in the Sunday Supplement of a leading Queensland newspaper but I was told later that a politician killed the story.

    Q. So what happens now?

    A. I guess we wait for some PhD. to break ranks and to do a decent job on these sites. As an amateur I can go to jail for digging or for just retaining an artifact. Officially of course there is no site and there are no artifacts.

    Q. Do we have the expertise in Australia with the experience and knowledge to handle the specific areas of research?

    A. Firstly there is political censorship. You are asking an academic to put his career on the line. Secondly the history of the ancient seafaring nations is a blank chapter relative to 2000 B.C. to 200 B.C. and only a handful of researchers have the specific knowledge of the ancient Mediterranean sea- trading sagas. In almost every case such research has officially been erased.

    In this discovery we are talking about 4,000 years of history prior to the British navigator Captain Cook, with Australia well known to ancient sea traders and with the visitors coming and departing on the monsoon trade-winds and the establishment of ancient colonies.

    This is in direct contrast to the fictions perpetrated by British historians that Australia was discovered and settled as a convict colony in 1788.

    A private researcher goes to the media with historical artifacts, the story is smothered, and then academia comes in and cleans out or buries the evidence. The media press releases then become propaganda that deliberately erases any prior British colonial history.

    Even so, the proliferation of discoveries by individual researchers outside the system attracts worldwide attention and the establishment will be forced, in time, to reveal the facts.

    But here is something that numbers of sane people evidently are experiencing...

    If you are a lover of the TRUTH, then you will be excited that the truth is now ready to come out.

    There's too much for an email, but I have put it into a new convenient package with three explosive reports called "Forbidden Discoveries", "Men in Embarrassing Places" and "Is This Sitchin Fiction?".

    This whole package is all about so called "experts" being caught red-handed. You will be astonished at the deliberate mis-information being fed to us. It is now time to face the truth.

    THE DISCOVERY THAT
    LED TO ATTEMPTED MURDER

    They called it a hoax, till one man went to prove it so… The unexpected truth shocked me…

    It will shock you too.

    For 800 years, the Ark of the Covenant was the most sacred object in the world.

    In 586 BC, with other precious items from Solomon’s Temple, it vanished. At that time Jerusalem was surrounded by the army of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon.

    According to Jewish tradition, the temple vessels were taken and hidden in a cave by Jeremiah and the temple priests. Their location was kept secret, then forgotten.

    They remained lost for 2500 years.

    ARTEFACT FOUND JAN 1982

    When American archaeologist Ron Wyatt, after a 3 year dig, claimed to have discovered the Ark of the Covenant under Jerusalem, he presented one object from the same cave to the Israeli authorities.

    This convinced them that he had indeed found some items from the First Temple.

    The object was an ivory pomegranate head of the priestly sceptre from Solomon's Temple - positive confirmation that vessels from Solomon's temple had indeed been found.

    He was promptly ordered by the host government not to reveal certain information.

    I personally set out with a briefcase full of objections against Wyatt’s claims. However, intense investigation, repeated visits to dig sites, and privileged viewing of evidence and artefacts left me totally convinced.

    But one problem was to arise. It concerned the ivory pomegranate.

    DISAPPEARS AND REAPPEARS 1995

    The object disappeared. But later in the 1990s it reappeared.

    The museum bought the pomegranate from an anonymous collector for $550,000, with the money deposited into a secret Swiss bank account at the time.

    Then the pomegranate was placed on display at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Here we photographed it.

    The museum authorities had placed a sign next to it stating that it is "a sensational discovery of great significance to the history and archaeology of Ancient Israel...the only known object from the First Temple, built by King Solomon in Jerusalem". In 1995, I showed this to the world so that no critic should feel secure.

    DECLARED A FORGERY 2004

    On December 29, 2004, Associated Press reported that the item had been declared a fake. The report said: “Israeli authorities indicted four antique dealers and collectors Wednesday on charges of running a sophisticated forgery ring that created a trove of fake biblical artefacts, including some hailed as among the most important archaeological objects ever uncovered in the region.

    “The forged treasures include an ivory pomegranate touted by scholars as the only relic from Solomon's Temple, an ossuary that reputedly held the bones of James, Jesus' brother, and a stone tablet with inscriptions on how to maintain the Jewish Temple, officials said.

    “According to the indictment, the members of the ring took genuine artefacts and added inscriptions to them, falsely increasing their importance and greatly inflating their value.

    “After forging the inscriptions, they would paint the items with a coating designed to emulate the patina that would accumulate on the object over thousands of years, the indictment said.

    “The work was so sophisticated that it fooled top antiquities experts, and some of the fake artefacts sold for huge sums, authorities said.

    “The indictments came less than a week after the Israel Museum announced that the ivory pomegranate, one of its most prized possessions, was a forgery.”

    MY COMMENT AT THE TIME

    When this announcement was made, I wrote: “This does not necessarily cancel the genuineness of Ron Wyatt's find. But the crime may well have been the forging of the inscription that is on it.”

    ATTEMPT TO BLOCK IMPARTIAL
    EXPERTS FROM EXAMINING IT

    In August, 2007, paleographer Robert Deutsch announced from Tel Aviv:

    “Are there no limits to hypocrisy?

    “Why weren’t leading Israeli paleographers allowed to participate in the conference to discuss the authenticity or forgery of the first temple Ivory Pomegranate and present their opinions based on their expertise?

    “Leading paleographer such as Prof. Yosi Naveh (my teacher at the Hebrew University), Prof. Gabi Barkay (my teacher at the Tel Aviv University) and Dr. Ada Yardeni, who probably has the best eye for ancient letter forms (she even invented the fonts which have been given her name). Is their exclusion because some parties ‘Fear the Truth’"?

    “Why is the evidence ignored?

    “As a paleographer I have handled and published more than 1000 West Semitic inscriptions, including seals, seal impressions, ostraca, weights, arrow-heads, decanters, jars, impressed handles, coins etc.

    “The first rule for me was to authenticate the items by investigating it under microscopic conditions and only then publish them.

    “Some fakes observed in private collection were omitted, or published accordingly clearly titled: ‘Questionable or Forged’.

    “In my capacity as a paleographer I contacted the Israel Museum for permission to check the pomegranate.

    “I was refused!

    “It was only after my lawyer appealed to the museum’s director was I allowed to visit the museum and examine the pomegranate.

    “The museum informed me that I would not be allowed to use their microscope. Knowing this before my visit I arrived with my personal microscope and its camera.

    “Once at the museum the laboratory personnel told me they do not have a table on which I can place my microscope and only after 10 minutes of a dispute they provided me a table, but no chair!

    “Finally, the pomegranate was brought into the room but I was immediately informed that I would not be allowed to touch it!

    “Therefore, they asked the chief restorer to be present and to move and turn the pomegranate according to my requests (as one can see from the pictures provided by Mr. Shanks, the attendants of the meeting had the pomegranate for free inspection, they handled it with bare hands).

    ALLEGED “FAKE”
    CONFIRMED TO BE AUTHENTIC

    “In any event, I spent more than an hour and a half checking the inscription on the pomegranate and taking several excellent photographs of the letters.

    “My conclusion is unequivocal: the letters were engraved in antiquity, and many letters maintain a fine genuine patina.

    “There cannot be any doubt whatsoever, that the fragmentary letters that were damaged, were engraved before the ivory was broken.

    “Moreover, the smooth edges of the broken letters, proves that the artifact continued to be used in antiquity even after the damage!

    “My conclusions, together with the new pictures photographed at the museum, were presented a few weeks ago at the International Convention of the Society of Biblical Research, July 2007 at the University of Vienna.

    WHY WAS GENUINE ARTEFACT
    DECLARED TO BE A “FAKE”?

    “One can only speculate what is the exact motivation of ‘honest’ Prof. Yuval Goren and his ‘rubber stamp’ team, to declare a perfectly genuine inscription as a fake?

    “I think I can offer a crystal clear answer to this question:

    “Prof. Youval Goren, as also his two colleagues, Prof. Shmuel Ahituv and Prof. Aaron Demski were witnesses who testified in the maliciously called ‘The Ring of Five Forgery Trial’.

    “Prof. Goren was supposed to be the prosecution’s key witness, who declared several other un-provenanced genuine artefacts, as fakes.

    “Therefore, Hershel Shank’s attempt to discover the truth is an exercise in futility; Yuval Goren simply can not admit mistakes, or afford to change his view, simply because his prestige is in question and his testimony in court would collapse as unreliable!

    “But what else is new under the sun?”
    (http://lootingmatters.blogspot.com/2007/08/intellectual-consequences-for-biblical.html)

    REASONS IT WAS
    LABELLED A “FAKE”

    The big problem here is religion and ideology (both political and disciplinary). I have had these discussions with native Israelis, archaeologists, anthropologists and others. Here is what I have learned:

    1. A THREAT TO PEACE:

    Some members of the Jewish government (including some archaeologists) who are more 'minimalist' in their view of the Bible and its historicity see solid archaeological evidence that upholds the historicity of the Hebrew Scriptures as a threat to Arab/Israeli peace.

    They feel that undermining Israel's history in the Holy Land will enhance prospects for peace.

    2. WILL UNDERMINE ISRAEL’S RIGHT TO EXIST:

    Other Israelis who are more theologically conservative or 'maximalist' in their view of the Hebrew Bible see an item like the 'brother of Jesus' ossuary as a threat to Israel's right to exist by way of 'Christian Supersessionism' meaning that any find that significantly 'proves' the New Testament will undermine Israel's right to exist.

    This came out in discussions when the James ossuary was only being examined by Israeli but not Christian scholars.

    Pretty amazing seeing that so many conservative evangelical Christians are now somewhat Zionist in their outlook politically.

    3. NON-RELIGIOUS ANTI-BIBLE BIAS:

    Since many (not all) archaeologists are materialistic in their outlook and less likely compared with the past, to be religious in nature, there is often a presumption or bias toward sacred texts, and any kind of evidence in the archaeological record that confirms Scripture is treated with great skepticism.

    A little skepticism is healthy but it is fairly dogmatic in the archaeological circles I have traveled in over the last 20+ years.

    Not a small number of faculty I knew at the University of Minnesota did not even believe there was such a person as a historical Jesus. Anything related to the Bible was right up there with Grimm's Fairy Tales or entirely borrowed from neighbors like Egypt.

    UPDATE 2008

    On December 16, 2008, Biblical Archaeology Review wrote, under the heading “Leading Israeli Scientist Declares Pomegranate Inscription Authentic”:

    “An Israeli scientist employed by the defense in the Jerusalem forgery trial has concluded that the inscription on the famous ivory pomegranate (“[Belonging] to the Temple of [Yahwe]h, consecrated to the priests”) is authentic.

    “If the inscription is authentic, the pomegranate is probably the only surviving artifact from Solomon’s Temple.

    “Professor Yitzhak Roman of the Hebrew University examined the pomegranate under a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) to reach his conclusions. In the 1990s he was the academic director of Hebrew University’s SEM.

    “A committee led by Tel Aviv University’s Yuval Goren had previously concluded that the inscription was a forgery because three critical letters adjacent to an ancient break stopped before the break.

    “The forger was apparently fearful of breaking off more of the pomegranate if he went too close to this fracture.

    “The pomegranate itself is admittedly genuine.

    “However, Professor Roman’s examination showed that the three critical letters, contrary to Yuval Goren’s finding, did in fact go into the ancient break.

    “This was the same conclusion reached by an examination of the pomegranate at the Israel Museum sponsored by the Biblical Archaeology Society on May 3, 2007: The three letters clearly go into the break.

    “In addition, Professor Roman examined the patina inside the letters of the inscription.

    “The committee that found the inscription to be a forgery had concluded that this patina was somehow glued into the surviving letters of the inscription.

    “Professor Roman found 11 different elements (some just trace amounts) in the natural patina. But he found no evidence that the patina had been glued.

    “Whether anyone will ask Professor Goren for his reaction to Professor Roman’s devastating report is not yet known.”

    OTHER SCEPTICAL QUESTIONS

    Of course, this is not the only controversy surrounding the discovery 20 feet (6 metres) below the streets of Jerusalem.

    Other questions that have arisen include these:

    1. How could Wyatt the amateur succeed – under the noses of an indignant archaeological world?

    2. When I, Jonathan Gray, revealed his findings, why did some people try to "eliminate" me?

    3. Should political pressures continue to keep this discovery underground?

    UNLIKE ANY OTHER REPORT

    I just had to write this up into a 600-page report. And in case you want to know, this is a well-documented, spellbinding work, based on cutting-edge research and on-site excavation.

    Apart from the main news on the search and discovery,the report reveals
    * Forgotten voyages
    * Secret tunnels
    * Prophecies uncanny in their fulfilment
    * Acts of intrigue – and
    * Fabulous treasures

    In fact, this report is unlike any other I have ever had the privilege to write. It is so interesting – and important – that a prominent Australian radio and TV personality chose to spend every day for a whole week reviewing it - and, not surprisingly, all the shops sold out.

    He called it “the second best book ever written”.Now I am not here to boast to you - because I was only the reporter of the events. But yes, it is important… and just how important, you will discover as you read it.

    IT'S TIME TO SPEAK UP

    Anyway, , something has to be told. So, after much consideration, I'm about to rip apart a curtain of silence about the Ark.

    Yes, yes... I know. The Ark's been reported in Ethiopia... in Jordan... in Egypt... and a dozen other places.

    Indeed, over the centuries replicas have been made. But originals? There can be only one. And that's what we're talking about.

    You won't want to miss this incredible true story.Here are revealed the down-to-earth inside secrets about a lost treasure... a dangerous search... and an almost unbelievable discovery claim.

    And yet, when you face all the strands of evidence, what else could it be?

    I'll take you along a trail of archaeological surprises, through forgotten history and right up until now.

    Why did an Israeli ex-Secret service agent say to me, "you have just filled in the missing gaps in what I already knew"?

    What sinister secret associated with the Ark is being covered up?

The report said: “Israeli authorities indicted four antique dealers and collectors Wednesday on charges of running a sophisticated forgery ring that created a trove of fake biblical artefacts, including some hailed as among the most important archaeological objects ever uncovered in the region. “The forged treasures include an ivory pomegranate touted by scholars as the only relic from Solomon's Temple, an ossuary that reputedly held the bones of James, Jesus' brother, and a stone tablet with inscriptions on how to maintain the Jewish Temple, officials said. “According to the indictment, the members of the ring took genuine artefacts and added inscriptions to them, falsely increasing their importance and greatly inflating their value. “After forging the inscriptions, they would paint the items with a coating designed to emulate the patina that would accumulate on the object over thousands of years, the indictment said. “The work was so sophisticated that it fooled top antiquities experts, and some of the fake artefacts sold for huge sums, authorities said. “The indictments came less than a week after the Israel Museum announced that the ivory pomegranate, one of its most prized possessions, was a forgery.” MY COMMENT AT THE TIME When this announcement was made, I wrote: “This does not necessarily cancel the genuineness of Ron Wyatt's find. But the crime may well have been the forging of the inscription that is on it.” ATTEMPT TO BLOCK IMPARTIAL EXPERTS FROM EXAMINING IT In August, 2007, paleographer Robert Deutsch announced from Tel Aviv: “Are there no limits to hypocrisy? “Why weren’t leading Israeli paleographers allowed to participate in the conference to discuss the authenticity or forgery of the first temple Ivory Pomegranate and present their opinions based on their expertise? “Leading paleographer such as Prof. Yosi Naveh (my teacher at the Hebrew University), Prof. Gabi Barkay (my teacher at the Tel Aviv University) and Dr. Ada Yardeni, who probably has the best eye for ancient letter forms (she even invented the fonts which have been given her name). Is their exclusion because some parties ‘Fear the Truth’"? “Why is the evidence ignored? “As a paleographer I have handled and published more than 1000 West Semitic inscriptions, including seals, seal impressions, ostraca, weights, arrow-heads, decanters, jars, impressed handles, coins etc. “The first rule for me was to authenticate the items by investigating it under microscopic conditions and only then publish them. “Some fakes observed in private collection were omitted, or published accordingly clearly titled: ‘Questionable or Forged’. “In my capacity as a paleographer I contacted the Israel Museum for permission to check the pomegranate. “I was refused! “It was only after my lawyer appealed to the museum’s director was I allowed to visit the museum and examine the pomegranate. “The museum informed me that I would not be allowed to use their microscope. Knowing this before my visit I arrived with my personal microscope and its camera. “Once at the museum the laboratory personnel told me they do not have a table on which I can place my microscope and only after 10 minutes of a dispute they provided me a table, but no chair! “Finally, the pomegranate was brought into the room but I was immediately informed that I would not be allowed to touch it! “Therefore, they asked the chief restorer to be present and to move and turn the pomegranate according to my requests (as one can see from the pictures provided by Mr. Shanks, the attendants of the meeting had the pomegranate for free inspection, they handled it with bare hands). ALLEGED “FAKE” CONFIRMED TO BE AUTHENTIC “In any event, I spent more than an hour and a half checking the inscription on the pomegranate and taking several excellent photographs of the letters. “My conclusion is unequivocal: the letters were engraved in antiquity, and many letters maintain a fine genuine patina. “There cannot be any doubt whatsoever, that the fragmentary letters that were damaged, were engraved before the ivory was broken. “Moreover, the smooth edges of the broken letters, proves that the artifact continued to be used in antiquity even after the damage! “My conclusions, together with the new pictures photographed at the museum, were presented a few weeks ago at the International Convention of the Society of Biblical Research, July 2007 at the University of Vienna. WHY WAS GENUINE ARTEFACT DECLARED TO BE A “FAKE”? “One can only speculate what is the exact motivation of ‘honest’ Prof. Yuval Goren and his ‘rubber stamp’ team, to declare a perfectly genuine inscription as a fake? “I think I can offer a crystal clear answer to this question: “Prof. Youval Goren, as also his two colleagues, Prof. Shmuel Ahituv and Prof. Aaron Demski were witnesses who testified in the maliciously called ‘The Ring of Five Forgery Trial’. “Prof. Goren was supposed to be the prosecution’s key witness, who declared several other un-provenanced genuine artefacts, as fakes. “Therefore, Hershel Shank’s attempt to discover the truth is an exercise in futility; Yuval Goren simply can not admit mistakes, or afford to change his view, simply because his prestige is in question and his testimony in court would collapse as unreliable! “But what else is new under the sun?” (http://lootingmatters.blogspot.com/2007/08/intellectual-consequences-for-biblical.html) REASONS IT WAS LABELLED A “FAKE” The big problem here is religion and ideology (both political and disciplinary). I have had these discussions with native Israelis, archaeologists, anthropologists and others. Here is what I have learned: 1. A THREAT TO PEACE: Some members of the Jewish government (including some archaeologists) who are more 'minimalist' in their view of the Bible and its historicity see solid archaeological evidence that upholds the historicity of the Hebrew Scriptures as a threat to Arab/Israeli peace. They feel that undermining Israel's history in the Holy Land will enhance prospects for peace. 2. WILL UNDERMINE ISRAEL’S RIGHT TO EXIST: Other Israelis who are more theologically conservative or 'maximalist' in their view of the Hebrew Bible see an item like the 'brother of Jesus' ossuary as a threat to Israel's right to exist by way of 'Christian Supersessionism' meaning that any find that significantly 'proves' the New Testament will undermine Israel's right to exist. This came out in discussions when the James ossuary was only being examined by Israeli but not Christian scholars. Pretty amazing seeing that so many conservative evangelical Christians are now somewhat Zionist in their outlook politically. 3. NON-RELIGIOUS ANTI-BIBLE BIAS: Since many (not all) archaeologists are materialistic in their outlook and less likely compared with the past, to be religious in nature, there is often a presumption or bias toward sacred texts, and any kind of evidence in the archaeological record that confirms Scripture is treated with great skepticism. A little skepticism is healthy but it is fairly dogmatic in the archaeological circles I have traveled in over the last 20+ years. Not a small number of faculty I knew at the University of Minnesota did not even believe there was such a person as a historical Jesus. Anything related to the Bible was right up there with Grimm's Fairy Tales or entirely borrowed from neighbors like Egypt. UPDATE 2008 On December 16, 2008, Biblical Archaeology Review wrote, under the heading “Leading Israeli Scientist Declares Pomegranate Inscription Authentic”: “An Israeli scientist employed by the defense in the Jerusalem forgery trial has concluded that the inscription on the famous ivory pomegranate (“[Belonging] to the Temple of [Yahwe]h, consecrated to the priests”) is authentic. “If the inscription is authentic, the pomegranate is probably the only surviving artifact from Solomon’s Temple. “Professor Yitzhak Roman of the Hebrew University examined the pomegranate under a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) to reach his conclusions. In the 1990s he was the academic director of Hebrew University’s SEM. “A committee led by Tel Aviv University’s Yuval Goren had previously concluded that the inscription was a forgery because three critical letters adjacent to an ancient break stopped before the break. “The forger was apparently fearful of breaking off more of the pomegranate if he went too close to this fracture. “The pomegranate itself is admittedly genuine. “However, Professor Roman’s examination showed that the three critical letters, contrary to Yuval Goren’s finding, did in fact go into the ancient break. “This was the same conclusion reached by an examination of the pomegranate at the Israel Museum sponsored by the Biblical Archaeology Society on May 3, 2007: The three letters clearly go into the break. “In addition, Professor Roman examined the patina inside the letters of the inscription. “The committee that found the inscription to be a forgery had concluded that this patina was somehow glued into the surviving letters of the inscription. “Professor Roman found 11 different elements (some just trace amounts) in the natural patina. But he found no evidence that the patina had been glued. “Whether anyone will ask Professor Goren for his reaction to Professor Roman’s devastating report is not yet known.” OTHER SCEPTICAL QUESTIONS Of course, this is not the only controversy surrounding the discovery 20 feet (6 metres) below the streets of Jerusalem. Other questions that have arisen include these: 1. How could Wyatt the amateur succeed – under the noses of an indignant archaeological world? 2. When I, Jonathan Gray, revealed his findings, why did some people try to "eliminate" me? 3. Should political pressures continue to keep this discovery underground? UNLIKE ANY OTHER REPORT I just had to write this up into a 600-page report. And in case you want to know, this is a well-documented, spellbinding work, based on cutting-edge research and on-site excavation. Apart from the main news on the search and discovery,the report reveals * Forgotten voyages * Secret tunnels * Prophecies uncanny in their fulfilment * Acts of intrigue – and * Fabulous treasures In fact, this report is unlike any other I have ever had the privilege to write. It is so interesting – and important – that a prominent Australian radio and TV personality chose to spend every day for a whole week reviewing it - and, not surprisingly, all the shops sold out. He called it “the second best book ever written”.Now I am not here to boast to you - because I was only the reporter of the events. But yes, it is important… and just how important, you will discover as you read it. IT'S TIME TO SPEAK UP Anyway, , something has to be told. So, after much consideration, I'm about to rip apart a curtain of silence about the Ark. Yes, yes... I know. The Ark's been reported in Ethiopia... in Jordan... in Egypt... and a dozen other places. Indeed, over the centuries replicas have been made. But originals? There can be only one. And that's what we're talking about. You won't want to miss this incredible true story.Here are revealed the down-to-earth inside secrets about a lost treasure... a dangerous search... and an almost unbelievable discovery claim. And yet, when you face all the strands of evidence, what else could it be? I'll take you along a trail of archaeological surprises, through forgotten history and right up until now. Why did an Israeli ex-Secret service agent say to me, "you have just filled in the missing gaps in what I already knew"? What sinister secret associated with the Ark is being covered up?

    SUPPOSE THIS WAS YOU?

    Brian Childress received an email from somebody
    purporting to be a Nigerian banker offering Brian a
    chance to earn some serious money.

    He told Brian his bank was looking after 37 million
    dollars of a deceased millionaire.

    He said he needed a foreign bank account through which
    to launder the money - and if Brian would send him
    his bank details for this purpose, he would give Brian
    a share of the spoils.

    Brian helped him out, but he never saw these promised
    millions. They did not exist.

    Now, what's this got to do with archaeology?

    HERE’S SOME STARTLING
    ARCHAEOLOGY NEWS FOR YOU

    What you are about to discover may shock you. Or anger
    you. Or you may be relieved that you did not fall for
    it.

    If you had innocently endorsed something and found out
    you were party to a scam, what would be the honourable
    thing to do?

    Yes, you know the answer to that. After all, you have to
    face yourself in the mirror tomorrow, right?

    Very well, today I have some rather startling news for
    you.

    And why am I bothering? Because I don't like records
    manipulated to promote false claims.

    TELL ME, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

    * Suppose I was a lawyer. Wouldn’t I be
    professionally obligated to inform you if someone
    was giving you bad legal advice?

    * If I were a building inspector, wouldn’t I owe
    you the truth if I knew the house you were
    purchasing had termite-weakened foundations?

    * If I was an accountant, you would expect me to
    advise you if a neighbor's tax advice could put
    you in jail.

    Okay, I'm none of those things, but I'm trying to provide
    the same service in my areas of expertise.

    More and more, people ask me about

    * Planet X, the Anunnaki and the Nephilim.

    * Did extraterrestrials from a distant planet
    called Nibiru (Planet X) come to earth and
    crossbreed with creatures here?

    * And does Nibiru’s orbit bring it into our solar
    system every 3,600 years?

    * Is it due to visit us soon?

    HOW CAN WE KNOW FOR SURE?

    With many confusing claims these days, how can one
    sift fact from fiction? That’s an important question.

    The answer is to test everything. Demand real evidence.
    Because there are many self-proclaimed "experts" out
    there, who either
    (a) don’t understand their topic, or
    (b) fake data.


    THE PLANET X - NIBIRU - STORY

    Now, what about this Planet X story?

    It’s the kind of story you might want to believe. A
    certain popular writer, describing himself as an expert
    on ancient texts, tells us that beyond the planet Pluto
    there is an outer planet called Nibiru.

    Nibiru was populated by a reptilian super race. Those
    extraterrestrials were known as Annunaki.

    The Anunnakis’ own planet was dying. So the Anunnaki
    came to Planet Earth to attempt a rescue of their planet.
    The gold on Planet Earth was needed to create a shield
    for preserving Nibiru’s dwindling atmosphere.

    One can actually feel sorry for the Anunnaki.

    Anyway, this Planet Nibiru, in its orbit, came close to
    Planet Earth.

    A group of 50 astronauts from Nibiru, with their leader
    called Enki, splashed down in the waters of the Persian
    Gulf. Some Anunnaki were sent to mine gold in Africa.

    When the toil became unbearable, Enki ‘created’
    ‘primitive workers’ by mixing the genes of male Anunnaki
    with the eggs of early female hominoids, to bring about
    Homo sapiens - you and me.

    This sudden speed-up given to our evolution explains how
    the Sumerian civilization began suddenly, fully
    developed, with no evidence of a primitive beginning.

    You can credit these extraterrestrials for jump-starting
    it, this popular writer says.

    Oh, and something else. The orbit of Nibiru (which some
    label Planet X) brings it into our solar system every
    3,600 years. It will return to Planet Earth very soon.

    Well, that awakens my interest. What about you?

    MR S: “IT’S ON THE
    SUMERIAN TABLETS”

    In any case, this gentleman, whom we shall call Mr S,
    assures us that this is what the clay tablets say. In
    fact, he has been heavily promoting this topic.

    In contrast to the airy speculation of von Danicken, Mr S
    claims to be a scholar. He graduated in economics. But he
    claims to be an expert in ancient Sumerian texts and
    Hebrew.

    You have to admit, an argument appealing to ancient clay
    tablets does sound somewhat scholarly.

    For a number of years I accepted this gentleman's claim
    that the above story was in those ancient Sumerian records.
    After all, you just don’t make up such things, do you?

    When Mr S first spun his exciting story to us, how many
    of us had access to all the Sumerian texts?


    WHAT HE HAD RIGHT

    From my years of independent research, I knew that Mr S
    had at least one thing correct - that the Sumerian
    civilization began suddenly, fully developed, with no
    evidence of a primitive beginning.

    As you know, in today’s world, where we are taught that
    early man was primitive, it is rare to hear about high
    technology in the ancient world. So I felt a measure
    of rapport with Mr S.

    For this reason, my customary cautious approach softened
    toward him. And I did enjoy reading his books.
    So I let down my guard just a little to give the “facts”
    in his books due respect – in particular, the claimed
    fact that certain ancient texts existed that backed up
    his story.

    Accepting his claim also to be a responsible scholar, I
    went as far as to quote him a couple of times in my book
    Dead Men’s Secrets.

    After all, it was apparent to me that Mr S did have a
    number of things right:

    1. That a Global Flood had devastated the world in
    the past.(See the evidence for that event in my book
    Surprise Witness.)

    2. That there was a civilization that started in
    Mesopotamia, from descendants of the Flood survivors.
    (See the archaeological evidence in my book, The
    Corpse Came Back.)

    3. That Sumerian civilization started at a high
    level.(See Dead Men’s Secrets, chapter 2.) This
    does need explaining.


    “SUDDEN” APPEARANCE

    Now, getting back to the Sumerians: It is a fact that
    Sumerian civilization did appear suddenly, unexpected
    and out of nowhere.

    Yes, Sumeria sprang into existence already fully
    developed - that is, without transition from a primitive
    state, with a fantastic ready-made high society.

    In the remotest period of which there are records,
    Sumeria shows a level of civilization which is, by
    popular understanding, inexplicable. It sounds crazy I
    know, but it’s a fact!

    H. Frankfort (Tell Uqair) called it “astonishing.” Pierre
    Amiet (Elam) termed it “extraordinary.” A. Parrot (Sumer)
    described it as “a flame which blazed up so suddenly.”
    Leo Oppenheim (Ancient Mesopotamia) stressed “the
    astonishingly short period” within which the civilization
    had arisen. Joseph Campbell (The Masks of God) summed it
    up this way: “With stunning abruptness. . . there appears
    in this little Sumerian mud garden. . . the whole cultural
    syndrome that has since constituted the germinal unit of
    all the high civilizations of the world.”

    HOW WAS THIS POSSIBLE?

    How could such a society suddenly spring up, at the top,
    not at the bottom? Just like that?

    Mr S to the rescue. He proposed that the reason ancient
    Sumerian culture was able to spring up suddenly, out of
    nowhere – was because of aliens from outer space.

    He says the advanced knowledge was given to the Sumerians
    by extraterrestrials. And he identifies them as the
    Anunnaki gods spoken about in Sumero-Mesopotamian
    mythology.

    And how does Mr S know all this?

    MR S: “IT’S ON THE
    SUMERIAN TABLETS”

    Well, it’s on the Sumerian ancient clay tablets, he tells
    us.

    You have to admit, an argument appealing to ancient clay
    tablets does sound rather scholarly, right?

    Oh well, you must have guessed by now who Mr S is, so I
    might as well name him.

    But I shall make it absolutely clear that what follows is
    not about the man. It’s about the subject. I have no
    problem with Zecharia Sitchin as a person. He’s probably
    quite a nice guy.

    For a number of years I assumed that his story was, as he
    claimed, in the Sumerian records. After all, you just
    don’t make up such things, do you?

    BUT THEN SOMETHING HAPPENED…

    Over a period of time I had been receiving emails asking
    me about

    * Planet Nibiru (Planet X)
    * The Anunnaki
    * The Nephilim
    * The 3,600 year orbit of this planet, which is
    said to bring destruction each time its passes
    close the earth.

    So I felt an increasing obligation to dig deeper.

    Well, I was checking carefully through the story. And an
    irritating anomaly cropped up. Assuming this story were
    true, such a misfit piece made no sense. It should not
    exist!

    Naturally, this bothered me. Shrug it off as an isolated
    problem? Perhaps. But it did cry out to be resolved.

    But, pursuing this matter was not so easy. You see,
    very soon another inconsistency surfaced.… then another…
    and another.

    Bother! The problem was not just one, but a growing
    procession of non-fitting pieces.

    That’s when it struck me that the problem might be not
    with the inconsistencies, but with Mr S’ story.

    Here are some of the serious questions that arose:


    1. Mr S said that the Anunnaki come from the planet
    Nibiru (a 12th planet). How do we know this is so?
    According to our friend, it’s in the Sumerian texts.

    PROBLEM: Search, search and search! But, no
    matter how hard one might search, it was
    absolutely impossible to find even one
    such Sumerian text!

    2. Nibiru is a planet beyond Pluto. How do we know?
    According to our friend, the Sumerian texts say
    so.

    PROBLEM: Again, I could find not one
    single Sumerian text that says so.

    3. This planet Nibiru cycles through our solar
    system every 3600 years. According to Mr S, the
    Sumerian texts say this.

    PROBLEM: But try as one might, no such
    Sumerian texts could be found! Not anywhere.

    Was the problem with me?

    Search as one might, the Sumerian texts displayed a
    distressing habit of not being there. So could the
    problem be with me?

    As I scratched my head over this, a few more awkward
    questions began to nag at me:


    + Why did Mr S claim that the biblical pre-Flood
    “sons of God” who married the “daughters of men”
    were called “nephilim” – when the Genesis text
    itself said something very different?

    + Why did Mr S say that “nephilim” means “people of
    the fiery rockets” and also “those who came down
    from heaven”? – when, in the Hebrew language, the
    word “nephilim” meant nothing like this.

    + Why did many of Mr S’ vital translations of
    Sumerian and Mesopotamian words, differ so much
    from Mesopotamian cuneiform bilingual dictionaries?

    Why… why… why? Here was a whole mass of questions
    now crying out for an answer.

    I WRITE TO THE NIBIRU MAN

    You should understand something here. Experience in
    front line archaeology has taught me that facts must
    always override theories. If a theory says yes, but
    the discovered facts say no, then the theory is wrong.
    That is plain common sense.

    In an investigation, there may be hundreds of
    information bits to consider. One may start out
    imagining a scenario, but when all the facts are in,
    the final picture may turn out to be quite different.

    Let’s say you have hundreds of torn-up bits of newspaper
    scattered over the table, and you want to fit them
    together to form a page. But after working for hours,
    you discover the pieces just do not fit.

    Well, that’s where I was with the many pieces to Mr
    Sitchin’s theory. They just did not fit.

    So what would you do? What better than to ask the man
    who gave us the pieces? So I sat down and wrote to
    Zecharia Sitchin, asking him to help me clarify these
    matters.

    Surely he would substantiate his story better than
    anyone. Perhaps he had sources not available to the
    rest of the world?

    I waited and waited. And then, it came. As I pulled it
    out of the post box, my heart thumped heavily. I tore
    open the envelope, and there, inside, was a photocopy
    of my letter, with Mr S’ few brief notes scribbled over
    it.

    It revealed that the dear man's claims were in tatters.

    If you are a lover of the TRUTH, then you will be excited
    that the truth is now ready to come out.

    My report on this came to 224 pages. That's too much for
    an email, but I have put it into a new convenient package
    with two other explosive reports called "Forbidden
    Discoveries" and "Men in Embarrassing Places".

    This whole package is all about so called "experts" being
    caught red-handed. You will be astonished at the deliberate
    mis-information being fed to us. It is now time to face
    the truth.

This sudden speed-up given to our evolution explains how the Sumerian civilization began suddenly, fully developed, with no evidence of a primitive beginning. You can credit these extraterrestrials for jump-starting it, this popular writer says. Oh, and something else. The orbit of Nibiru (which some label Planet X) brings it into our solar system every 3,600 years. It will return to Planet Earth very soon. Well, that awakens my interest. What about you? MR S: “IT’S ON THE SUMERIAN TABLETS” In any case, this gentleman, whom we shall call Mr S, assures us that this is what the clay tablets say. In fact, he has been heavily promoting this topic. In contrast to the airy speculation of von Danicken, Mr S claims to be a scholar. He graduated in economics. But he claims to be an expert in ancient Sumerian texts and Hebrew. You have to admit, an argument appealing to ancient clay tablets does sound somewhat scholarly. For a number of years I accepted this gentleman's claim that the above story was in those ancient Sumerian records. After all, you just don’t make up such things, do you? When Mr S first spun his exciting story to us, how many of us had access to all the Sumerian texts? WHAT HE HAD RIGHT From my years of independent research, I knew that Mr S had at least one thing correct - that the Sumerian civilization began suddenly, fully developed, with no evidence of a primitive beginning. As you know, in today’s world, where we are taught that early man was primitive, it is rare to hear about high technology in the ancient world. So I felt a measure of rapport with Mr S. For this reason, my customary cautious approach softened toward him. And I did enjoy reading his books. So I let down my guard just a little to give the “facts” in his books due respect – in particular, the claimed fact that certain ancient texts existed that backed up his story. Accepting his claim also to be a responsible scholar, I went as far as to quote him a couple of times in my book Dead Men’s Secrets. After all, it was apparent to me that Mr S did have a number of things right: 1. That a Global Flood had devastated the world in the past.(See the evidence for that event in my book Surprise Witness.) 2. That there was a civilization that started in Mesopotamia, from descendants of the Flood survivors. (See the archaeological evidence in my book, The Corpse Came Back.) 3. That Sumerian civilization started at a high level.(See Dead Men’s Secrets, chapter 2.) This does need explaining. “SUDDEN” APPEARANCE Now, getting back to the Sumerians: It is a fact that Sumerian civilization did appear suddenly, unexpected and out of nowhere. Yes, Sumeria sprang into existence already fully developed - that is, without transition from a primitive state, with a fantastic ready-made high society. In the remotest period of which there are records, Sumeria shows a level of civilization which is, by popular understanding, inexplicable. It sounds crazy I know, but it’s a fact! H. Frankfort (Tell Uqair) called it “astonishing.” Pierre Amiet (Elam) termed it “extraordinary.” A. Parrot (Sumer) described it as “a flame which blazed up so suddenly.” Leo Oppenheim (Ancient Mesopotamia) stressed “the astonishingly short period” within which the civilization had arisen. Joseph Campbell (The Masks of God) summed it up this way: “With stunning abruptness. . . there appears in this little Sumerian mud garden. . . the whole cultural syndrome that has since constituted the germinal unit of all the high civilizations of the world.” HOW WAS THIS POSSIBLE? How could such a society suddenly spring up, at the top, not at the bottom? Just like that? Mr S to the rescue. He proposed that the reason ancient Sumerian culture was able to spring up suddenly, out of nowhere – was because of aliens from outer space. He says the advanced knowledge was given to the Sumerians by extraterrestrials. And he identifies them as the Anunnaki gods spoken about in Sumero-Mesopotamian mythology. And how does Mr S know all this? MR S: “IT’S ON THE SUMERIAN TABLETS” Well, it’s on the Sumerian ancient clay tablets, he tells us. You have to admit, an argument appealing to ancient clay tablets does sound rather scholarly, right? Oh well, you must have guessed by now who Mr S is, so I might as well name him. But I shall make it absolutely clear that what follows is not about the man. It’s about the subject. I have no problem with Zecharia Sitchin as a person. He’s probably quite a nice guy. For a number of years I assumed that his story was, as he claimed, in the Sumerian records. After all, you just don’t make up such things, do you? BUT THEN SOMETHING HAPPENED… Over a period of time I had been receiving emails asking me about * Planet Nibiru (Planet X) * The Anunnaki * The Nephilim * The 3,600 year orbit of this planet, which is said to bring destruction each time its passes close the earth. So I felt an increasing obligation to dig deeper. Well, I was checking carefully through the story. And an irritating anomaly cropped up. Assuming this story were true, such a misfit piece made no sense. It should not exist! Naturally, this bothered me. Shrug it off as an isolated problem? Perhaps. But it did cry out to be resolved. But, pursuing this matter was not so easy. You see, very soon another inconsistency surfaced.… then another… and another. Bother! The problem was not just one, but a growing procession of non-fitting pieces. That’s when it struck me that the problem might be not with the inconsistencies, but with Mr S’ story. Here are some of the serious questions that arose: 1. Mr S said that the Anunnaki come from the planet Nibiru (a 12th planet). How do we know this is so? According to our friend, it’s in the Sumerian texts. PROBLEM: Search, search and search! But, no matter how hard one might search, it was absolutely impossible to find even one such Sumerian text! 2. Nibiru is a planet beyond Pluto. How do we know? According to our friend, the Sumerian texts say so. PROBLEM: Again, I could find not one single Sumerian text that says so. 3. This planet Nibiru cycles through our solar system every 3600 years. According to Mr S, the Sumerian texts say this. PROBLEM: But try as one might, no such Sumerian texts could be found! Not anywhere. Was the problem with me? Search as one might, the Sumerian texts displayed a distressing habit of not being there. So could the problem be with me? As I scratched my head over this, a few more awkward questions began to nag at me: + Why did Mr S claim that the biblical pre-Flood “sons of God” who married the “daughters of men” were called “nephilim” – when the Genesis text itself said something very different? + Why did Mr S say that “nephilim” means “people of the fiery rockets” and also “those who came down from heaven”? – when, in the Hebrew language, the word “nephilim” meant nothing like this. + Why did many of Mr S’ vital translations of Sumerian and Mesopotamian words, differ so much from Mesopotamian cuneiform bilingual dictionaries? Why… why… why? Here was a whole mass of questions now crying out for an answer. I WRITE TO THE NIBIRU MAN You should understand something here. Experience in front line archaeology has taught me that facts must always override theories. If a theory says yes, but the discovered facts say no, then the theory is wrong. That is plain common sense. In an investigation, there may be hundreds of information bits to consider. One may start out imagining a scenario, but when all the facts are in, the final picture may turn out to be quite different. Let’s say you have hundreds of torn-up bits of newspaper scattered over the table, and you want to fit them together to form a page. But after working for hours, you discover the pieces just do not fit. Well, that’s where I was with the many pieces to Mr Sitchin’s theory. They just did not fit. So what would you do? What better than to ask the man who gave us the pieces? So I sat down and wrote to Zecharia Sitchin, asking him to help me clarify these matters. Surely he would substantiate his story better than anyone. Perhaps he had sources not available to the rest of the world? I waited and waited. And then, it came. As I pulled it out of the post box, my heart thumped heavily. I tore open the envelope, and there, inside, was a photocopy of my letter, with Mr S’ few brief notes scribbled over it. It revealed that the dear man's claims were in tatters. If you are a lover of the TRUTH, then you will be excited that the truth is now ready to come out. My report on this came to 224 pages. That's too much for an email, but I have put it into a new convenient package with two other explosive reports called "Forbidden Discoveries" and "Men in Embarrassing Places". This whole package is all about so called "experts" being caught red-handed. You will be astonished at the deliberate mis-information being fed to us. It is now time to face the truth.

    THE 30 FOOT DEATH FALL SAVED HER LIFE

    As a front line archaeologist, I am responsible if I do not share
    this very important news with you.

    What is currently happening right now in Europr, USA and Australia
    is vitally connected with a very ancient document which it is my job
    to investigate and report on to you.

    And you will see this clearly as we go on.

    But first, were you aware of reverse events - miracles, if you like
    - that are occurring constantly around the world?


    THE 30-FOOT FALL ON HER HEAD CURED HER!


    In December 2011, 9 year old Annabel Beam fell 30 feet head-first
    down into the rotted-out trunk of a cottonwood tree. Several hours
    passed before emergency personnel were able to harness Annabel to
    safety.

    "She was in the tree about five hours," says her mother, Christy
    Beam.

    Annabel was not upside down the entire time. "She at one point was
    able to right herself. So, she was in a fetal position for the
    majority of the time."

    Amazingly, despite supposedly being knocked unconscious during the
    fall, she survived without injury.

    For a significant portion of her childhood prior to the accident,
    Annabel had been in constant "severe chronic pain." Her belly
    was greatly distended all the time. Eating and drinking was a
    challenge. She was taking ten medications a day.

    But after the fall of 30 feet onto her head, Annabel's symptoms of
    digestive disorders miraculously vanished.

    Doctors say that she shows no more symptoms, there is no more pain,
    and she is on zero medications today.

    What should have KILLED the little girl CURED her instead.


    DISASTER TURNED AROUND FOR GOOD

    A young man was seized by his jealous brothers and maliciously
    sold to slave dealers.

    As if that wasn't enough, his new slave master's wife had him
    thrown into prison after he refused her sexual advances.

    But by an utterly astonishing sequence of events, this young man
    was ultimately propelled into the favor of the king. And, would
    you believe, he ended up in a responsible government position.

    And, turning the tables on his brothers, he became the means of
    saving their lives during a crisis.

    What was intended for harm, turned out to everyone's good.


    INTENDED HARM TURNS TO GOOD

    An historical event now attested by archaeology was the 1446 BC
    escape of the Hebrew slaves from ancient Egypt.

    Travelling along a natural road from Egypt through the Wadi Watir
    canyon, they ended up facing the Gulf of Aqaba. In front of them
    was the sea, and either side a barrier of mountains. They found
    themselves in a cul-de-sac, with no way out except back through
    the way they had come.

    Then the alarm was raised. Pharaoh's army was after them, coming
    through that same canyon. Unarmed and defenceless, they were
    trapped.

    You may know the rest of the report. Nothing but a miracle could
    have saved them. And, yes, miracles do occur. Our diving teams
    have been collecting the evidence.

    In this case, the fugitives escaped as the sea opened, while the
    pursuing army perished on the seabed as the waters returned.

    Much of the Egyptian army's weaponry was washed up on the opposite
    shore - so the "defenceless" Hebrews now had weapons to defend
    themselves from any future attackers.

    So it was that threatened destruction from the pursuing army of
    a superpower ended up equipping defenceless fugitives with all
    the defence weapons they needed.

    What was intended to do them harm, was turned around for their
    good.


    MUSLIMS TURNED LIKE SCORPIONS
    AGAINST THEIR INITIATOR

    During Islam's First Jihad, Islam emerged to attack the
    organization that created them, but to spare some others whom
    that organization wanted destroyed.

    Then, during the Second Jihad, Islam again intervened to protect
    those whom the same organization wanted to destroy. Historians
    abound with reports of this amazing turn of events.

    In Europe, the ruling religion had passed a death decree against
    people known as Protestants, and the priests were stirring up the
    people to have those protesters put to death.

    But Soliman the Magnificent, setting out from Constantinople on
    the 23rd of April, 1526, at the head of a mighty Muslim army,
    and swollen at last to 300,000 Turks, swept into the center of
    Europe and struck terror into the hearts of the would-be assassins.
    They diverted the killer squads and gave support to the reformers.


    WORLD-CHANGING EVENTS
    POISED READY TO BREAK

    If you didn't know, the Muslim Third jihad has now begun, and we
    can expect history again to be repeated.

    According to an astonishing prophecy, America and the West will
    soon fall under new, oppressive laws, and certain citizens will
    be outlawed.

    But, if we read the prophecy correctly, just as the hand is
    raised to punish these dissenters who live by their conscience,
    suddenly and unexpectedly radical Islam strikes.

    Then the New World Order "army" is distracted while it "restrains"
    radical Islam and this group of unarmed and defenceless citizens
    will be largely sheltered for a time.

    Once again, threatening disaster will be turned around for good.


    , if you didn't know, events have already started to
    happen in Europe, USA and Australia that are set to change the
    world overnight.


    EVENTS ARE CATCHING UP

    members.

    You may already suspect this. But this year - 2014 - may be
    the turning point in our history. A dangerous year.

    And that means economically... ecologically... politically...
    religiously... socially. Take your pick.

    So our team has been working overtime to get out to you some
    vital information while there is still time.

    We have been gathering this information from the bottom of
    the sea and from remote mountain and desert regions of the
    world.

    My crews slept on ashes, dived among sharks, and dodged
    terrorist ambushes, to get this information to you.

    When I realized how explosive some of this knowledge is
    - and that desperate efforts were being made to suppress it
    - I knew that this just had to be shared.

    When you know the answers to some of the questions below,
    you will have a clear-cut advantage over others who have
    no clue what lies ahead.

    We have brought together three major fields of research:

    * Forbidden discoveries
    * Crucial current events
    * Startling prophecies

    These are some of the issues:

    1. THE 2012 PROPHECY
    • Is an astronomical event soon to affect our planet?
    • A global economic collapse coming?
    * Will a gravitational cosmic tsunami cause the sun to scorch
    the earth?
    * Will the only immediate survivors be people in underground
    cities, caves, and submarines?
    * What is the plain, stark truth about the period beyond 2012?
    * And learn the chilling news about depleted uranium - the
    dying of bees, deer, birds, bats and fish worldwide, and how
    this affects your survival.
    • The coming interruption to history that will take the
    world by surprise.
    • An inside intelligence report, revealing a cleverly
    mapped sequence of events coming soon.
    * Is there hope beyond this...?

    2. THE GREAT DATING BLUNDER
    * Don't be conned.
    * Why do scientists reject most carbon dating results?
    * Is this true?: Carbon dating shows that a famous historical
    event hasn't happened yet!
    * Do you know how to make oil in ten minutes?
    * Why do only a few dating methods suggest an "old" earth?
    * Why are these widely publicized - while the majority of systems,
    which suggest a "young" age for our earth, are ignored?
    * Amazing discoveries you are not supposed to know… about ice,
    dinosaurs, trees, magnetic reversals, petrified men, oil
    and gas, coal, fossils, lakes, deltas, waterfalls, coral reefs,
    deserts, the tipping of the earth's axis, and the age of
    civilizations, such as Egypt.

    3. STING OF THE SCORPION
    * Many of our world leaders are currently making their decisions
    by astrology. Their decisions affect the lives of millions of
    people. How safe is this?
    * Did you hear about the Great Astrology Cover-up - and the hidden
    truth behind Star Names and Signs?
    * Also, did you know that ancient civilizations believed a serpent
    - which represented the devil - had taken control of the world?
    * That they believed a virgin's baby would fight the serpent
    defeat him and bring peace, life and happiness to mankind?
    * Did you know that the pictures on the sky map were used to
    describe this story and NOT to tell people's fortunes through
    the stars?
    * And that the NAMES of the stars, as well as the star sign
    pictures told that story?
    * Discover some power-packed prophecies which are soon to affect
    us all.

    4. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TOWER OF BABEL?
    * The intriguing search for the remains of history's most infamous
    building.
    * Startling new scientific evidence on the origin of languages.
    * Amazing high technology and lost knowledge.
    * Scary dive in murky water for an ancient skyscraper. Tantalizing
    secrets under the water.

    5. WAS THIS A MIRACLE?
    * Discover some amazing modern phenomena:
    * How do you pull a girl through a solid wall?
    * Deadly poison in the cup.
    * The coins that floated across the bay.
    * Why did the ant carry a contact lense?
    * The miracle power of a brother's love song.
    * The airport stranger knew too much.
    * Keeping one step ahead of the secret service men.
    * Buried alive behind the house.
    * What you were never told about the Boxing Day tsunami.
    * Why the gasoline would not burn.
    * Was a man really raised from the dead in Lebanon?
    * Shocking surprise in the canyon.
    * During the murder, the clock struck 13
    …and other surprising true reports!

    Also I'm throwing in two exciting Bonus Reports.

    And this evidence will stun you...

    #1- WHO'S PLAYING JESUS GAMES?
    * Over a billion people follow Christianity. But is
    Jesus Christ just an historical mistake - or even
    something worse? ?
    * Is it true that early historians never mention him?
    * And Jesus' resurrection - what are the scientific facts?
    Is it a hoax, an hallucination, or history?
    * Is it true that Gospel writers "contradict" one another?
    * What about the Dead Sea scrolls - do they confirm or refute
    Christianity?
    * Are there "missing" books of the Bible?

    With a huge showdown soon about to break, you can't afford to
    be without this gripping, controversial and important
    information…

    This report is based on exciting archaeological discoveries
    and over 25 years of ground-breaking research.

    You owe it to yourself to get this into your hands. Compelling
    evidence about the real origin of Christianity.

    #2- THE SORCERERS' SECRET
    * Discover the shocking truth - Who are the infiltrators who
    are planning to take over the lives of unsuspecting Christians
    and those of their children? This explosive report will send
    shivers down your spine!
    * Is there a deliberate alteration of the Bible on a large
    scale?
    * Why were Bible revisers sworn to secrecy?
    * And have you heard about the King James Bible's amazing
    hidden built-in dictionary?
    * Also, why are some Bible editors suddenly struck dumb, or
    end up in asylums, séances and prison cells?

    Yes, you have just taken a tiny peep into "SECRETS EXPOSED ".
    Not five, but seven astonishing, surprise-packed e-books in one
    MIGHTY PACKAGE.

    This is crucial, empowering information. And you will have FUN
    discovering it. The best part is that you can get all this
    information RIGHT NOW.

    When you open them, you will discover that any one of
    these 7 e-books is DYNAMITE. But with the entire set
    of 7 you have in your grasp what some people kill for –
    literally!!!

    Just get your head into this puzzle,.

    And then after that I've got a very, very special deal for
    you, if you are interested, which is not available to the
    public, but reserved for you strictly as a valued
    subscriber.

    And what was the puzzle? I tell you, it just knocked
    me over! Well, the occasion was my first expedition
    – into the Amazon.

    FORGOTTEN HISTORY HIDDEN IN THE JUNGLE

    Yes, indeed. It was an afternoon never to be forgotten.
    That day, you see, I had the unexpected opportunity to
    examine an ancient metal sheet, or plaque, engraved with
    Egyptian hieroglyphics.

    The weird thing was, it had lain hidden away in, of all
    places, this South American Amazon jungle. It had been
    here for thousands of years.

    It seems that long, long ago traders from a faraway land
    across the Eastern Sea sailed up the Amazon river system.
    And this was one of the items they traded to the ancestors
    of today's primitive Amazon villagers, who once lived in
    shining cities.

    Now that's very embarrassing for mainstream theories. Do
    you see the significance? Not only did many of today's
    primitive tribes have a civilized origin, but people over
    the whole world were trading with each other!

    The mind boggles at forgotten history…

    As a matter of fact, the native name for the Amazon is
    “Solimoes”. It is the same as Soliman, or Solomon, and
    is suggestive of the biblical claim that the ships of
    Kings Solomon and Hiram of Tyre made voyages lasting
    three years, to a secret destination.

    Semitic names are rather common in the Amazon Valley.
    And many Phoenician inscriptions have been discovered.

    A HEAD SHRINKER?

    Just before nightfall, I was reclining in a corner of
    the house when something happened to quite startle me.

    A man with black, rotten, teeth and war paint and
    brilliant-coloured feather headdress, tight cords
    around his neck, and sticks through his ears, rounded
    the corner of the house carrying a lethal weapon on
    this shoulder and appeared suddenly at the door.

    I looked up and he was glaring down at me.

    A shudder went down my spine. The war paint, poison
    darts and blowpipe screamed out that he was a killer.

    Not overly friendly, I concluded. We had better be
    careful.

    Fortunately, I had earlier given one of the young
    village boys a balloon and he had become quite
    proficient at blowing it up.

    So now I felt in my bag and drew out a balloon for
    this man.

    He squinted at it, stuffed it into his mouth to chew,
    pulled it out, fiddled with it, and looked very
    puzzled. Then his son came to the rescue.

    Soon this fierce warrior was prancing around the
    yard, showing off to his family how clever he was,
    giggling with delight as he blew it up and let the
    air scream out.

    Oh, yes, NOW he was friendly to us.

    HOW TO SHRINK A HEAD

    Head shrinking. The procedure was as follows:

    For a week before a head-hunting raid, the men of
    the household assemble in the hut every night.

    They develop a plan of attack and each of the men
    exhorts the others to fight without fear and not to
    abandon comrades.

    They place great faith in visions in extravagant
    color which they get from a drug they drink, as to
    how the raid will succeed.

    The women remain at home, singing and performing
    ceremonies to increase the chances of victory, but
    not knowing if they will ever see their husbands
    again, unless, perhaps, in miniature.

    The whole gruesome event was demonstrated to me.
    I shall describe it to you as I saw it.

    Approaching the enemy house, the attackers have as
    their main purpose to slaughter as many of their
    opponents as they can before reinforcements can be
    summoned by a signal drum.

    The invaders must approach cautiously, because the
    enemy will have fortified their house by pitfalls
    covered over and containing sharp spikes.

    Spring-set weapons may also have been installed on
    the trail in such a way that a mere touch will
    release a multiple spear, driving as many as 12
    one-foot-long wooden spikes through the intruders
    body.

    Ultimately the showdown comes. But before the
    defenders come out to fight or flee, they pause long
    enough to hold a dance ceremony in the doomed hut,
    using a special flute made from the leg bone of a
    jaguar. Extreme brutality follows.

    The murder accomplished, the invaders pick up the
    bodies and cut off the heads.

    Women are always subject to capture. But older women,
    filled with hatred for the attackers, are likely to
    make poor wives.

    The victorious warriors hurry away from the scene,
    dripping with blood, and with the heads dangling at
    their backs.

    Hatred, fear and blood lust now give way to a mood
    of triumph, made more gratifying by the opportunity
    to perform indignities upon the enemy head.

    Firstly, the victor has tobacco juice forced up his
    nose to protect him from the spirit of the slain
    enemy.

    Then come rituals aimed at mastering the dead man’s
    soul.

    THE SHRINKING BEGINS

    Shrinking begins by cutting the scalp up the back of
    the head far enough to peel it off the skull.

    Special care is taken to trim the inside of the face
    away from the bones and from the cartilage of nose.
    When removed, the face and scalp hang limp.

    The skull is disposed of then the remainder of the
    head is held by its long hair, into a bowl of
    boiling water, into which are mixed herbs.

    After some two hours of cooking, the skin is thick,
    rubbery and pale yellow. It is cooled on a stick.

    A ring of vine is made to fit the final size of the
    shrunken neck opening.

    The scalp is then sewed up.

    To further shrink the skin and remove fatty tissue,
    several small stones are heated. They are inserted
    through the neck hole and separately in the head
    rolled around.

    The heat of the stones draws in the outside of the
    head causing it to shrink.

    While this is occurring, a man skilfully kneads the
    face of the shrinking head with his fingers in much
    the same way as a person would mould a model out of
    plasticine. This helps to preserve the natural shape
    of the face.

    After a certain time when the head was much smaller
    the hot stones are tipped out and replaced with hot
    sand. The head is rotated, with the hot sand being
    replaced from time to time.

    Between treatments, the face is carefully moulded.
    Some of the hair is plucked and particular care is
    taken to keep the eyebrows in proportion to size of
    head.

    A QUARTER SIZE

    The head is finally about a quarter of the natural
    size, about as large as a small orange.

    Next, a loop is passed through a hole in the top
    and tied to a stick on the inside so that the head
    can be hung up.

    Then all the holes in the head are sealed shut
    either by using skewers or by sewing. It is
    believed that inside the head is the spirit of the
    dead person. If that spirit could be trapped
    inside by closing off all the holes then the new
    owner of the head, the man who has shrunk it, will
    possess this extra strength in addition to his own,
    in time of battle.

    Finally, the head is dyed black with charcoal, and
    smoked, and polished. Much as any piece of
    leather, until it is quite hard.

    Even the ears, with lobes pierced, are perfect
    miniatures of the original.

    Sometimes, strings about 15 inches long are
    suspended from lips.

    The new owner will dance and sing to the shrunken
    head while he holds it aloft on top of a pole.

    It takes about twelve hours to clean and shrink a
    head, then about eight hours more to smoke it.

    Back in the civilised world, on the coast, fake
    shrunken heads are sold. However, a genuine one
    will have long hair ….. the lips sewn or pinned,
    and all facial hair removed except eyebrows, skin,
    black-smoked and polished.

And then after that I've got a very, very special deal for you, if you are interested, which is not available to the public, but reserved for you strictly as a valued subscriber. And what was the puzzle? I tell you, it just knocked me over! Well, the occasion was my first expedition – into the Amazon. FORGOTTEN HISTORY HIDDEN IN THE JUNGLE Yes, indeed. It was an afternoon never to be forgotten. That day, you see, I had the unexpected opportunity to examine an ancient metal sheet, or plaque, engraved with Egyptian hieroglyphics. The weird thing was, it had lain hidden away in, of all places, this South American Amazon jungle. It had been here for thousands of years. It seems that long, long ago traders from a faraway land across the Eastern Sea sailed up the Amazon river system. And this was one of the items they traded to the ancestors of today's primitive Amazon villagers, who once lived in shining cities. Now that's very embarrassing for mainstream theories. Do you see the significance? Not only did many of today's primitive tribes have a civilized origin, but people over the whole world were trading with each other! The mind boggles at forgotten history… As a matter of fact, the native name for the Amazon is “Solimoes”. It is the same as Soliman, or Solomon, and is suggestive of the biblical claim that the ships of Kings Solomon and Hiram of Tyre made voyages lasting three years, to a secret destination. Semitic names are rather common in the Amazon Valley. And many Phoenician inscriptions have been discovered. A HEAD SHRINKER? Just before nightfall, I was reclining in a corner of the house when something happened to quite startle me. A man with black, rotten, teeth and war paint and brilliant-coloured feather headdress, tight cords around his neck, and sticks through his ears, rounded the corner of the house carrying a lethal weapon on this shoulder and appeared suddenly at the door. I looked up and he was glaring down at me. A shudder went down my spine. The war paint, poison darts and blowpipe screamed out that he was a killer. Not overly friendly, I concluded. We had better be careful. Fortunately, I had earlier given one of the young village boys a balloon and he had become quite proficient at blowing it up. So now I felt in my bag and drew out a balloon for this man. He squinted at it, stuffed it into his mouth to chew, pulled it out, fiddled with it, and looked very puzzled. Then his son came to the rescue. Soon this fierce warrior was prancing around the yard, showing off to his family how clever he was, giggling with delight as he blew it up and let the air scream out. Oh, yes, NOW he was friendly to us. HOW TO SHRINK A HEAD Head shrinking. The procedure was as follows: For a week before a head-hunting raid, the men of the household assemble in the hut every night. They develop a plan of attack and each of the men exhorts the others to fight without fear and not to abandon comrades. They place great faith in visions in extravagant color which they get from a drug they drink, as to how the raid will succeed. The women remain at home, singing and performing ceremonies to increase the chances of victory, but not knowing if they will ever see their husbands again, unless, perhaps, in miniature. The whole gruesome event was demonstrated to me. I shall describe it to you as I saw it. Approaching the enemy house, the attackers have as their main purpose to slaughter as many of their opponents as they can before reinforcements can be summoned by a signal drum. The invaders must approach cautiously, because the enemy will have fortified their house by pitfalls covered over and containing sharp spikes. Spring-set weapons may also have been installed on the trail in such a way that a mere touch will release a multiple spear, driving as many as 12 one-foot-long wooden spikes through the intruders body. Ultimately the showdown comes. But before the defenders come out to fight or flee, they pause long enough to hold a dance ceremony in the doomed hut, using a special flute made from the leg bone of a jaguar. Extreme brutality follows. The murder accomplished, the invaders pick up the bodies and cut off the heads. Women are always subject to capture. But older women, filled with hatred for the attackers, are likely to make poor wives. The victorious warriors hurry away from the scene, dripping with blood, and with the heads dangling at their backs. Hatred, fear and blood lust now give way to a mood of triumph, made more gratifying by the opportunity to perform indignities upon the enemy head. Firstly, the victor has tobacco juice forced up his nose to protect him from the spirit of the slain enemy. Then come rituals aimed at mastering the dead man’s soul. THE SHRINKING BEGINS Shrinking begins by cutting the scalp up the back of the head far enough to peel it off the skull. Special care is taken to trim the inside of the face away from the bones and from the cartilage of nose. When removed, the face and scalp hang limp. The skull is disposed of then the remainder of the head is held by its long hair, into a bowl of boiling water, into which are mixed herbs. After some two hours of cooking, the skin is thick, rubbery and pale yellow. It is cooled on a stick. A ring of vine is made to fit the final size of the shrunken neck opening. The scalp is then sewed up. To further shrink the skin and remove fatty tissue, several small stones are heated. They are inserted through the neck hole and separately in the head rolled around. The heat of the stones draws in the outside of the head causing it to shrink. While this is occurring, a man skilfully kneads the face of the shrinking head with his fingers in much the same way as a person would mould a model out of plasticine. This helps to preserve the natural shape of the face. After a certain time when the head was much smaller the hot stones are tipped out and replaced with hot sand. The head is rotated, with the hot sand being replaced from time to time. Between treatments, the face is carefully moulded. Some of the hair is plucked and particular care is taken to keep the eyebrows in proportion to size of head. A QUARTER SIZE The head is finally about a quarter of the natural size, about as large as a small orange. Next, a loop is passed through a hole in the top and tied to a stick on the inside so that the head can be hung up. Then all the holes in the head are sealed shut either by using skewers or by sewing. It is believed that inside the head is the spirit of the dead person. If that spirit could be trapped inside by closing off all the holes then the new owner of the head, the man who has shrunk it, will possess this extra strength in addition to his own, in time of battle. Finally, the head is dyed black with charcoal, and smoked, and polished. Much as any piece of leather, until it is quite hard. Even the ears, with lobes pierced, are perfect miniatures of the original. Sometimes, strings about 15 inches long are suspended from lips. The new owner will dance and sing to the shrunken head while he holds it aloft on top of a pole. It takes about twelve hours to clean and shrink a head, then about eight hours more to smoke it. Back in the civilised world, on the coast, fake shrunken heads are sold. However, a genuine one will have long hair ….. the lips sewn or pinned, and all facial hair removed except eyebrows, skin, black-smoked and polished. Would you like to know more?

    IRAQ HEAT SCANNER SURPRISE

    What a shrewd man! During the first Gulf War,
    Saddam Hussein had 1,500 heavy tanks positioned
    on the border between Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

    But he buried them in the sand, leaving only
    the gun turrets sticking out.

    These were well camouflaged, effectively making
    them invisible from the air and any ground
    surveillance units.

    Bad luck! They got discovered. So America shifted
    its Keyhole satellite into position over the
    Iraqi desert.

    Then the 55-feet-long, 12 ton spy satellite took
    pictures of the cold desert floor during the
    twilight hours.

    And do you know, “Big Bird”, as it was called,
    had infrared scanners which, from 155 miles above
    the earth, could detect a temperature difference
    of only half a degree.

    So now the satellite was placed in position to
    take pictures of the buried tanks.

    You see, the tanks would heat up during the hot
    daylight hours and continue to hold heat long
    after the rest of the desert cooled during the
    night.

    Well, the buried tanks showed up on the satellite
    photo like neon signs.

    The exact location of each tank was then plotted
    on a target map and given to allied pilots who
    systematically eliminated them.

    SATELLITE DISCOVERY
    THEN STARTLES SKEPTICS

    However, Big Bird photographed more than buried
    tanks. It made a discovery that blew skeptics out
    of the water.

    (We’ll come back to what this satellite found,
    in a just few minutes.)

    Of course, you’ve heard the story of Moses who
    led the escape of the Hebrew slaves from Egypt,
    and the drowning of Pharaoh’s pursuing army in
    the Red Sea?

    If you didn’t know, that particular story is
    often attacked by critics.

    Before the Iraq war, while divers were searching
    for possible remains of this event, a professor
    Laughed his head off.

    With a mile of letters after his name, this clever
    man assured us emphatically us that the biblical
    Exodus, the chase across the Red Sea, and the
    drowning of Pharaoh's army “never happened.”

    Poor guy! He missed the greatest underwater
    discovery of the century.

    Skeletal remains of horses, soldiers, chariot
    cabs and wheels, were found, all mixed together
    and scattered over the sea bed of the Gulf of
    Aqaba.

    Yes, here was a huge army of remains. Six-spoked
    wheels, 4-spoked wheels and 8-spoked wheels.

    SKEPTICS SAID: “WRONG LOCATION”

    But the location also ruffled some feathers.

    According to the Bible account, the Red Sea
    parted and the Hebrews escaped on a dry sea bed
    to the opposite coast, but when Pharaoh’s army
    pursued, the sea rolled back from both sides
    and drowned every last one of them.

    "But the Gulf of Aqaba" is not the Red Sea,"
    shouted another skeptic. "So your find is in the
    wrong place."

    How would you respond to that?

    Well, you may already know that the Red Sea
    separates Africa from Arabia, then splits into
    two fingers – the Gulf of Suez in Egypt, and the
    Gulf of Aqaba between Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

    Some have assumed that if the event occurred at
    all, it would have to be in the Gulf of Suez,
    closest to Egypt.

    However, that's not so!

    If you take the geographical details given in the
    Bible report literally, they will actually lead
    you not to the Gulf of Suez but to the Gulf of
    Aqaba – to a spot on the coast near Nuweiba.

    And this is the exact place these remains were
    found.

    EGYPT’S WAR CHARIOTS

    The Egyptians had war chariots in their army and
    these, together with all the Egyptian chariots,
    were used by the Egyptian army when they pursued
    the people of Israel.

    “And he made ready his chariot, and took his
    people with him: And he took six hundred chosen
    chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and
    captains over every one of them.” (Ex. 14:6-7)

    The first century historian Flavius Josephus
    mentions the same number of chariots, as well as
    the fact that there were 50,000 horsemen and
    200,000 infantry soldiers.

    These war chariots were intended for quick
    battles and often had two soldiers: one who
    drove the chariot and one who fought from the
    chariot with bow, arrow and sword.

    These chariots were relatively light. The body
    work (or chariot basket) was made of wood and
    leather. The flooring was of wood, and the wheel
    axle was fastened to the underside of the floor.

    The wooden shaft leading to the horses (of which
    there were two) was also attached under the
    floor.

    DATING THE WHEELS

    However, could these wheels we found on the sea
    bed be from some event other than the Exodus?

    All right then, what can we discover from the
    wheels? Do the wheels tell us anything about the
    date of the event which caused them to end up
    there?

    Would you believe, the number of spokes helps
    us arrive at a precise answer.

    (a) The 4-spoked wheels were used from the
    early period of the 18th dynasty until the
    time of Thutmoses IV.

    (b) The 8-spoked wheels can be seen on the
    chariot bodies of Thutmoses IV’s war chariots,
    and are considered to be a short-lived
    experiment during a brief spell of his reign.

    This was the only time in Egyptian history that
    8-spoked wheels were ever used.

    (c) After Thutmoses IV, only 6-spoke wheels
    were used. However, these were already used
    sometimes during the reign of Thutmoses IV.

    This establishes the date of the wheels discovered
    on the seabed (4-spoke, 6-spoke, and 8-spoke
    wheels) as within a limited period – a date during
    part of the 18th dynasty, most likely during the
    reign of Thutmoses IV – around 1450 BC

    Several different varieties of chariots and wheels
    were to be expected at the Exodus, since all the
    chariots in Egypt were mobilized. (Ex. 14:7)

    According to biblical chronology (compared to
    known historical dates) the Exodus took place about
    1446 BC. This agrees well with the wheel dating.

    STARTLING SATELLITE CONFIRMATION

    But I must tell you about the most amazing Gulf
    War satellite discovery.

    You see, Big Bird photographed more than buried
    tanks in Iraq. It made a discovery that blew
    skeptics out of the water.

    As we noted, critics have said for years that the
    Exodus never happened. And others claimed that
    it did, but that the exodus crossing took place
    in the Gulf of Suez.

    Now, get this! When the satellite photo team
    examined pictures from that satellite high in the
    sky above the Middle East… and turned their
    attention to Egypt…

    To everyone’s amazement, a thin red line (heated
    areas show up as red on infrared photos) was seen
    running eastward from the Nile Delta (the ancient
    land of Goshen referred to in the biblical book
    of Exodus).

    It ran eastward, skirting the east side of the
    Red Sea.

    The book of Exodus states that the escaping
    Hebrew slaves in Egypt travelled “around the
    desert road toward the Red Sea. (Exodus 13:8)

    Well, the satellite photo team examined this
    red line with interest.

    From the Nile Delta, they noticed that the line
    went first a little eastward to Succoth.

    According to the book of Exodus, it was at
    Succoth that the Israelite slaves, as they left
    Egypt, were marshalled into ranks for the journey
    ahead.

    The line then extended over the high plateau of
    the Sinai Peninsula, finally dropping down onto
    what is today called the Gulf of Aqaba, the
    easternmost finger of the Red Sea.

    Was this the route of the Exodus?

    If you look at a map of this area, it will appear
    that, if so, the Hebrews were led into trap, with
    the sea in front and the rugged mountains behind
    them, through which the pursuing army of Pharaoh
    came after them.

    But the thin red line emerged from the east side
    of the red Sea and continued into the present
    day Saudi Arabia at the foot of the high peak
    known as Jebel el Lawz – the real Mount Sinai!

    The satellite photo team stared incredulously
    at the photo. A red line, as if drawn by God’s
    own hand, traced the exact route of the Hebrew
    Exodus.

    The red line entered the sea at Nuweiba on the
    Gulf of Aqaba, and emerged again on the other
    side in Saudi Arabia.

    And get this - the sea area in between these
    two red lines is precisely where our teams
    discovered the Egyptian chariot and skeletal
    remains.

    GROUND EXPLORATION
    OF THE RED LINE ROUTE

    When the Gulf War finally ended, archaeologists
    went back into the region to discover how it was
    possible for a 3,500 year old trail to exist well
    enough to show up on satellite photos.

    They found that 3 million people, with all their
    livestock, pulverised the desert sand into a fine,
    flour-like powder.

    During the desert nights, the humidity rises to
    levels near 100%, thus wetting the powdery sand,
    making a concrete-like substance.

    Through the years, the highway was buried by
    shifting sands, protecting the trail from the
    elements.

    During the day it would heat up like the Iraqi
    tanks, and being more dense than the surrounding
    sand, continue holding the heat longer into the
    cold nights!

    A coincidence? Forget it!

    An interesting 3,500 year old prophecy in Exodus
    states: “But indeed for this purpose I have
    raised you up, that I may show my power in you,
    and that My Name may be declared in all the
    earth.” (Exodus 9:16)

    This event was so spectacular – unlike any
    other in history – that it has been the subject
    of famous paintings and Hollywood epics, such
    as “The Ten Commandments”, starring Yul Brunner
    and Charlton Heston.

    This historical event of 3,500 years ago has,
    indeed, been declared in all the earth – just as
    the ancient prophecy said it would!

    Folk are still asking me. Are these and other
    discoveries available on DVD?

    Yes, I’ve been listening… So here they are –
    8 amazing DVD presentations (put together, very
    modestly – nothing fancy) – but the facts they
    give are astonishing.

    Some of these are quite CONTROVERSIAL – but the
    focus is on EVIDENCE. So here they are:

    1. Secrets of the Lost Races
    2. Has Noah’s Ark Been Found? (In two parts.
    Part 2 is Into the Forbidden Valley)
    3. The Lost Cities of Sodom and Gomorrah
    4. In Search of Pharaoh’s Lost Army
    5. Ark of the Covenant
    6. Strange Signs in the Sky
    7. Secrets of Ancient South America
    8. In a Coffin in Egypt

(Ex. 14:7) According to biblical chronology (compared to known historical dates) the Exodus took place about 1446 BC. This agrees well with the wheel dating. STARTLING SATELLITE CONFIRMATION But I must tell you about the most amazing Gulf War satellite discovery. You see, Big Bird photographed more than buried tanks in Iraq. It made a discovery that blew skeptics out of the water. As we noted, critics have said for years that the Exodus never happened. And others claimed that it did, but that the exodus crossing took place in the Gulf of Suez. Now, get this! When the satellite photo team examined pictures from that satellite high in the sky above the Middle East… and turned their attention to Egypt… To everyone’s amazement, a thin red line (heated areas show up as red on infrared photos) was seen running eastward from the Nile Delta (the ancient land of Goshen referred to in the biblical book of Exodus). It ran eastward, skirting the east side of the Red Sea. The book of Exodus states that the escaping Hebrew slaves in Egypt travelled “around the desert road toward the Red Sea. (Exodus 13:8) Well, the satellite photo team examined this red line with interest. From the Nile Delta, they noticed that the line went first a little eastward to Succoth. According to the book of Exodus, it was at Succoth that the Israelite slaves, as they left Egypt, were marshalled into ranks for the journey ahead. The line then extended over the high plateau of the Sinai Peninsula, finally dropping down onto what is today called the Gulf of Aqaba, the easternmost finger of the Red Sea. Was this the route of the Exodus? If you look at a map of this area, it will appear that, if so, the Hebrews were led into trap, with the sea in front and the rugged mountains behind them, through which the pursuing army of Pharaoh came after them. But the thin red line emerged from the east side of the red Sea and continued into the present day Saudi Arabia at the foot of the high peak known as Jebel el Lawz – the real Mount Sinai! The satellite photo team stared incredulously at the photo. A red line, as if drawn by God’s own hand, traced the exact route of the Hebrew Exodus. The red line entered the sea at Nuweiba on the Gulf of Aqaba, and emerged again on the other side in Saudi Arabia. And get this - the sea area in between these two red lines is precisely where our teams discovered the Egyptian chariot and skeletal remains. GROUND EXPLORATION OF THE RED LINE ROUTE When the Gulf War finally ended, archaeologists went back into the region to discover how it was possible for a 3,500 year old trail to exist well enough to show up on satellite photos. They found that 3 million people, with all their livestock, pulverised the desert sand into a fine, flour-like powder. During the desert nights, the humidity rises to levels near 100%, thus wetting the powdery sand, making a concrete-like substance. Through the years, the highway was buried by shifting sands, protecting the trail from the elements. During the day it would heat up like the Iraqi tanks, and being more dense than the surrounding sand, continue holding the heat longer into the cold nights! A coincidence? Forget it! An interesting 3,500 year old prophecy in Exodus states: “But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show my power in you, and that My Name may be declared in all the earth.” (Exodus 9:16) This event was so spectacular – unlike any other in history – that it has been the subject of famous paintings and Hollywood epics, such as “The Ten Commandments”, starring Yul Brunner and Charlton Heston. This historical event of 3,500 years ago has, indeed, been declared in all the earth – just as the ancient prophecy said it would! Folk are still asking me. Are these and other discoveries available on DVD? Yes, I’ve been listening… So here they are – 8 amazing DVD presentations (put together, very modestly – nothing fancy) – but the facts they give are astonishing. Some of these are quite CONTROVERSIAL – but the focus is on EVIDENCE. So here they are: 1. Secrets of the Lost Races 2. Has Noah’s Ark Been Found? (In two parts.

  • ARCHAEOLOGY NEWSFLASH 731

    That day was full of shocks, – big shocks.

    But I hardly suspected the news Ed would come out with…

    "SUDDEN" APPEARANCE

    At first I could not believe it; there was but one
    pattern—the ‘sudden’ appearance of civilizations
    worldwide. Five coincidences, or one pattern; call it
    what you like.

    1. There was Egypt. In the 3rd millenniumn B.C. Egypt
    sprang into existence suddenly, fully developed—that is,
    without transition from a primitive state, with a
    fantastic ready-made high society.

    In the remotest period of which there are records, Egypt
    shows a level of civilization which is inexplicable. It
    sounds crazy I know, but it’s a fact!

    2. Take a look at Sumeria. The appearance around the same
    time as Egypt of Sumerian civilization was likewise
    sudden, unexpected and out of nowhere.

    3. Then there was Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro. They were the
    key centers of the Indus Valley civilization. These also
    appear to have suddenly sprung up with no clear-cut
    traces of having evolved from primitive beginnings. Your
    third coincidence.

    4. And the Maya of Central America are in it, too. The
    Maya go back to approximately the same time. And at the
    outset of Mayan culture, their script was already perfect.

    Four very odd coincidences. But there’s one more.

    5. The megalith builders of northwest Europe appeared at
    precisely the same time. The achievements they
    demonstrated were identical, that is, the ‘simultaneous
    discovery of Pythagorean triangles, a precise calendar, a
    true compass-bearing for north, knowledge of the movement
    of celestial bodies (possibly including knowledge that
    the world was round) and a minutely accurate system of
    measurement.

    Well, what do you think? How was all this possible? So
    many instant civilizations.

    I took a map, encircled these suddenly appearing, ready-
    made cultures and stared at them.

    A COMMON ORIGIN?

    Was there any connection between them?

    I began to sift every available isolated piece of
    information. Over the next few months the search would

    lead through scores of countries.

    Something told me there was a connection, though I knew
    not where. As for a possible link between the "instant"
    civilizations, eight clues emerged.

    1. Symbols and hieroglyphics, identical worldwide, bore
    the marks of a common heritage. Everywhere the
    swastika, snake and sun combinations, as well as
    numerous specialized and intricate glyphs were
    repeated with no chance of coincidence.

    2. Likewise, similar systems of writing were in use—
    again all over the globe, even on isolated islands.
    This was striking.

    3. And languages had similarities. The older these
    were, the more they resembled each other.
    Practically all languages have connections through
    both vocabulary and construction. In almost every
    language are many words containing similar root
    words or combinations beyond what mere chance would
    allow. (Take, for instance, the names of the
    constellations. I found these were substantially the
    same whether in Mexico, Africa or Polynesia.)

    4. The calendars of Egypt and faraway Peru both had
    eighteen months of twenty days, with a five-day
    holiday at year’s end.

    5. I also took into account the great similarities in
    buildings, not only in construction but in
    astronomical alignment. Sphinxes in Egypt and
    Yucatan; pyramids on every continent and on remote
    islands; monoliths and stone circles also worldwide
    and often quarried elsewhere in the world. I was
    struck by similarity even as to original purpose.
    The Tower of Babel was built (according to Josephus,
    first-century Jewish historian) to provide shelter
    should another Deluge destroy the earth. And
    regarding the Toltec pyramids, the Mexican
    chronicler, Ixtlilxochitl, states: "After men had
    multiplied, they erected a very high ‘zacuali,’
    which is today a tower of great height, in order to
    take refuge in it should the second world be
    destroyed." Now I ask you, without a common source,
    why should the purpose be identical in Babylon and
    Mexico?

    6. Customs again were similar, as in burial,
    mummification, circumcision, or in binding babies’
    heads to produce an elongated skull. (The Maya,
    Incas, Celts, Egyptians and Basques did this.)

    7. Forms of religious observance bore more striking
    similarities.

    8. Finally I added to the list worldwide traditions of
    early history. Traditions of a Garden of Delight, a
    Golden Age, a global Flood, one original language, a
    tower where sudden language confusion resulted in a
    dispersal—clearly these bore the marks of a common
    source.

    Of one thing I was certain. The origins of cultures that
    were so different and so widely dispersed could not
    wholly be explained by borrowing and imitation.

    The Russian poet Valeri Brussov seemed to express it
    well:

    "At the bases of the oldest cultures of mankind we must
    look for a single influence… We must look back beyond
    antiquity for an X, for a still unknown cultural world
    that set the engine we know in motion.

    “The Egyptians, the Babylonians, the Greeks and Romans
    were all our teachers, but who were our teachers’ teachers?”

    My attention was riveted. Here were several fully
    developed cultures, apparently related, suddenly
    appearing out of nowhere.

    Well, how does one deal with such a discovery? I must
    confess, my curiosity was exploding.

    One more search was imperative. This time I had to track
    down the common source of any footprints leading to these
    cultures.

    SOURCE OF THE FOOTPRINTS

    Fortunately, after four to five thousand years, there
    were prints still visible enough to read.

    The evidence fairly tumbled out.

    Language was the first clue. It was soon apparent that
    root words in almost every language had their origins in
    the Middle East.

    Written signs added to the evidence. A single system of
    signs used over an extensive area of the earth by the
    Stone-writers originated likewise in the Middle East.

    Anthropology provided another helpful clue. I discovered
    that the best reconstructions by anthropologists located
    man’s point of origin close to the center of the Europe-
    Asia-Africa land mass.

    Archaeological finds clinched it. Agriculture had spread
    all over the world from, where else, but the Middle East
    highlands. In every instance plants, shrubs and fruit-
    bearing trees basic to survival and advancement came out
    of the Middle East first. Botanical genetic studies
    confirm the archaeological finds and leave no doubt.

    There it was. Our beginnings were in the Middle East
    highlands.

    You ask, why did agriculture begin in the difficult arc
    of mountains and highlands? Doesn’t it make you wonder?
    Why was it not begun on the fertile, easily cultivated
    plains and valleys?

    That is a natural enough question. During my search I had
    found other scholars expressing surprise at this most odd
    discovery.

    My archaeologist friend Ed Savage said to me, “Well, have
    you considered a worldwide disaster? In fact, a worldwide
    Deluge?"

    "You don’t mean Noah’s Flood?" I snorted.

    "Just that," clipped Ed. "It does shed some light on
    things."

    "Jonathan, don’t you see? Survivors of such a Deluge (an
    event most scholars have overlooked) would still be in
    the mountains. The lowlands were not yet dry enough
    following the global Flood."

    "And did you know, biblical sources not only point to
    Ararat (Armenia) as the landing place of the Flood
    survivors, but state that they landed ‘in the
    mountains.’"

    Ed unfolded a world map; I elbowed over it on the table.
    He pointed out the pertinent areas.

    "Artifacts uncovered suggest that settled communities
    extended from the Americas in the west to Thailand in the
    east by 2000 B.C. And overlaying that is a proven pattern
    of high cultures from Spain to Pakistan."

    I stared, somewhat intrigued, at the map. Armenia, the
    dispersion point, lay almost precisely in the middle.


    (I would later discover that other researchers had
    reached a similar conclusion. As says Howells: "If we
    look, first of all, for that part of the world which was
    the hothouse of the races, we can make only one choice.
    All the visible footsteps lead away from Asia. ")

    "Ed," I asked, "could this perhaps be the key to your
    five coincidences?"

    "Oh, I hardly think so. How?"

    I recited to Edgar the succession of discoveries made
    since our last meeting.

    1. Each of the first civilizations appeared suddenly,
    already fully developed. (Ed’s find.)
    2. A connection existed between them.
    3. Their footprints led back to the Middle East
    mountains.

    The archaeologist thought a minute, eyes narrowed,
    working through all the angles.

    Gradually a smile formed on those weathered lips. "By
    gum, man, you’ve hit it! Only one thing could explain
    their high level of civilization. Those nations got their
    heritage basically from the world that was wiped out in
    the Deluge. They continued where the generation of the
    biblical Noah left off!"

    "Those Flood survivors must have carried sufficient
    knowledge of the antedeluvian era to give a rapid start
    to the new cultures that sprang up ‘out of nowhere’ soon
    after."

    He clicked his fingers. "And the timing. A few hundred
    years—all it needed. The oldest civilizations appear just
    long enough after the Deluge for a population density to
    support a culture."

    Of course we could hardly claim to be first. Sir Leonard
    Woolley notched up a similar observation years before:


    "It was confidently expected that the widely held view of
    a gradual development would be proved, but the whole
    evidence has been to the contrary; indeed, it has grown

    to such proportions where we contact the most ancient
    civilizations that we find the peak was reached soon
    after the flood."

    The sudden appearance of civilization is itself a
    memorial to history’s one great catastrophe. More
    importantly, the Flood is a historical event of
    tremendous testimonial importance to modern man.

    Our world conditions are similar – high technology,
    population explosion, corruption and violence. Is there a
    warning for us here?

    GLOBAL ORDER FROM THE RUINS

    It goes without saying that the small group of bewildered
    survivors from the Deluge could hardly reproduce all of
    the aspects of the pre-Flood technology.

    Nevertheless they would have bequeathed to their
    migrating descendants the information of which they had
    personal or recorded knowledge.

    We know that the very earliest grains show genetic
    evidence of sophisticated manipulation; that is, they
    were already uniform and highly specialized immediately
    after the Flood.

    In an attempt to reconstruct the antedeluvian technology,
    the semblance of an integrated global civilization
    emerged in various parts of the world. Its achievements
    were astonishing; in some spheres, penetrating knowledge
    which our science has scarcely begun to nudge.

    Well, , you might already have that
    astonishing report on ancient mysteries, Dead Men’s
    Secrets …crammed full of surprises - more than 1,000 of
    them.

    Fiction couldn’t challenge your imagination more. And yet
    there it all is, fact after fact, story after story,
    about the lives and discoveries of a people thousands of
    years ago.

    Now naturally these exhibits will not be popular with
    some people. The majority of the scientific community has
    greeted them with deathly silence because of early
    indoctrination in evolution. It tries to ignore them for
    the sole reason that it cannot explain them.

    Yes, you can seize the advantage – and get information
    that will challenge your family and friends.

    This is an extremely important newsletter.

    You are in the right place at the right time. So keep
    reading, and see if this is right for you.

    UNBELIEVABLE RECOVERY

    This red-hot information will propel you into a better lifestyle.

    First, let me tell you what happened to Betty. Better still,
    let Betty herself tell you.

    "My name is Betty Foster and I have Ehlers-Danlos
    Syndrome.( This causes a fault in the makeup of the collagen
    which affects skin, veins, arteries and joints.)

    "This limited me to using an electric wheelchair for 99% of
    my mobility for about 13 years.

    "I had to wear custom made splints for my hands, fingers
    and legs, and I needed them day and night.

    "I started on this breakthrough discovery about 20 months
    ago. After 6 months I noticed less dislocations, less pain
    and over time became less reliant on the splints and
    wheelchair.

    "I can now walk with ease and don't need splints at all!
    I only use the wheel chair for long distances, like going
    3 kilometres to the shops etc. I use it like a car!

    "I hope this helps someone else. (and maybe get me a spot
    in the Olympics!) Betty."

    Betty's father comments: Betty had surgery on her knees
    when about 8 years old because her kneecaps kept coming out
    and tearing her knee muscles. Very painful and she had it
    all her life to that point.

    Five or six operations were done, all failed. This is long
    before the Ehlers Danlos syndrome was diagnosed at about
    age 30. She hasnot been able to walk properly since and has
    spent many years either in a wheel chair or at home or
    hospital or ambulance in bed.

    It was wonderful news when she told me, “Dad I can now walk
    normally.”

    Her hands had to be strapped for years every morning so
    her hands would not dislocate. She does not have to do that
    anymore and has started crocheting. Betty said her hands
    felt strange using them after so many years.

    Okay, [Name], I am an archaeologist. So why this
    urgent health alert to you?

    Because having survived baked-oven deserts, jungles, and
    terrorist bullets, I discovered that it can be life or death
    - unless one is 100% fit.

    MOST EXPERTS DON'T EVEN KNOW

    If you haven't heard of adult stem cell nutrition or
    stem cell enhancers before, you're not alone. This is
    so new that many health professionals aren't even aware
    of it yet.

    So read on and learn how to improve not just your physical
    health but also your bank account by jumping in and taking
    advantage of this breakthrough.

    Really, the question is: do you want to say goodbye to
    soreness, FEEL BETTER, and have MORE ENERGY?

    [Name],I've been testing this, with my wife, for
    7 years - and WOW!

    Whether you're an entrepreneur looking for the next
    red-hot opportunity or a savvy consumer who wants to
    stay healthy, you'd be smart to get yourself up to speed.

    WHY I'M EXCITED

    This is not about embryonic stem cells. It's adult stem cells,
    naturally produced in your body. They are the “master cells”.
    They can become virtually ANY TYPE OF CELL in your body.

    WHAT THEY DO

    Adult stem cells are released from your bone marrow into
    the bloodstream. Then they go searching for tissues and
    organs in distress.

    If the heart sends out a cry for help, the travelling
    stem cells exit the bloodstream, migrate to the heart,
    multiply, and transform themselves into brand new
    healthy heart muscle cells, to replace the sick or
    worn out cells.

    Adult stem cells can become new heart cells, liver cells,
    pancreatic cells, muscle cells, brain cells… even cells
    in the eyes, the joints, the skin, and more!

    In fact, any part of the body that needs restoring.

    HOT NEWS

    Yes, they can actually rebuild the body - which nothing else
    known can do.

    Sick children recover quickly, right? That's because
    their bone marrow releases stem cells efficiently.

    But as we grow older, this ability decreases. Fewer and
    fewer stem cells are released into the bloodstream. So
    your body becomes more susceptible to injury and
    breakdown.

    KEY HEALING FACTOR:
    THE NUMBER OF CIRCULATING STEM CELLS

    Many scientific studies now indicate that increasing
    the number of circulating adult stem cells is probably
    the single most important thing you can do to maintain
    optimal health.

    Let's say that again. The number of circulating stem
    cells is a key factor. The higher the number of
    circulating stem cells the greater is the ability of your
    body at healing itself.

    That's the key.

    HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT?

    How is this different from anything else we have
    heard about? After all, aren't there are some great
    supplements out there?

    Yes, it is true that traditional supplements, vitamins,
    antioxidants and good food nourish existing cells. But
    there's one thing they cannot do. They do not renew
    tissues, bones or organs.

    BUT NOW A NEW, EXCITING BREAKTHROUGH

    With this new breakthrough, you don't try to eliminate
    the disease or virus. You simply support your body's
    ability to rebuild itself.

    You see, only stem cells can renew tissues, bones or
    organs. That's the BIG difference.

    And so some overseas countries have initiated stem cell
    injections. But these are extremely expensive.

    But open the door! Here comes the breakthrough!

    Several wonder plants have now been concentrated into
    capsules - called StemRelease.

    It is the organic and all-natural way to stimulate
    the bone marrow to release adult stem cells into the
    blood.

    HERE'S HOW IT WORKS

    Within about an hour of taking two capsules, up to 30%
    (approx 3-4 million) new stem cells are circulating
    in the bloodstream, for a fraction of the cost.

    This helps Adult stem Cells to hone onto the distress
    messages being released by damaged cells.

    And something else. StemRelease also stimulates the
    migration of natural killer cells which are part of
    our immune system responsible for the detection and
    destruction of cancerous and virally infected cells
    in the body.

    Here's the bottom line. By taking stem cell nutrition,
    you can
    (a) aid your body in healing itself.
    (b) maintain peak health.

    Good news: There are no negative side effects.

    Do you know anyone who is suffering with any kind of
    ill health? Please give them this amazing news - it
    could give them their life back. (They'll sure be
    grateful to you!)

    HOW CAN YOU BENEFIT?

    "Can it help my problem?" you may be asking.

    TESTIMONIALS

    I thought you might like to see these wonderful testimonies
    that have been coming in from some of our friends:

    1. Our friend Dennis Kluver's daughter Sherrie had MS and
    was walking in a walker and now runs seven miles a day at
    the YWCA in the Morning. I think she was taking 2 SE3
    (StemRelease) every 2 hours for 4 months. She's 51 and to
    me look's 31.

    2. Kerensa Grigson says: I just want to tell you the
    tremendous success my friends have been having with
    this breakthrough. I will just outline quickly the names
    of my friends and the experience they have made with it.

    I will also share my own experience.

    Kerensa - Last year I suffered from chronic fatique.
    Every morning I would wake up with severe chest pain,
    swollen glands and aching joints. I felt tired all the
    time and had difficulty concentrating at work.

    After a few months of taking this (4-6 capsules a day)
    I was able to manage a full time job and the inflammation
    in my joints and the swelling in my glands went away -
    even on cold mornings.

    My immune system also became stronger. I was able to
    resist colds and flu's going around the office.

    My health has completely changed since taking it. I love
    this product and will stay on it for the rest of my life.

    Mark - my boyfriend Mark tried a bottle and had amazing
    results within only a few days.

    Taking only one capsule a day he told me that he noticed
    his eyesight felt much clearer and sharper - Mark already
    has 20/20 vision and eyes like a hawk so I didn't think
    this was possible.

    Mark also mentioned that his head felt clearer which
    enabled him to accomplish much more work in a shorter space
    of time in his challenging role as an engineer. He also
    reported having a lot more energy.

    Finally to cap it all off - Mark had a small growth on his
    little finger - like a bump in the bone. After three days
    this bump disappeared.

    He also mentioned that one of his toes was crooked, a
    problem he had since childhood. In only three days his
    toe straightened out and is no longer crooked.

    Finally, Mark mentioned that his knee was a bit sore and
    stiff and that when he rode his bike it would make a
    clicking noise. After taking StemRelease the clicking noise
    stopped and he said he could feel the knee joint
    strengthening.

    June - My wonderful friend June who used to work as a
    physiotherapist loves telling people about it. June told
    me that a young family member in the eastern states had a
    motorcycle accident and as a result had shattered his
    collar bone.

    When he was in hospital she sent him a bottle of it and
    within only one week he said he could feel the bones in
    his shoulder fusing back together - quite a miracle.

    June - Another one of June's customers was a young man
    with chronic back pain - he told her that the pain was
    so bad he couldn't go to work.

    After only a few days of being on StemRelease the pain
    in his back went away and he felt well enough to work again.

    Peter - June's husband, is amazingly fit and healthy for
    a man in his seventies. Towering a foot above me you would
    never know that he had cancer. Peter follows a very
    healthy diet and loves this new breakthrough product. He
    takes it faithfully every day and looks great. He said he
    wouldn't be without Stemenhance.

    Faye and Brian - these are my wonderful friends in Tasmania.
    Faye suffered with severe arthritis in her fingers to the
    point where it was painful to move them.

    After about 5-6 months of being on StemRelease Faye told
    me in an e-mail that the swelling in her fingers had gone
    down and that she no longer suffered any pain.

    Her husband Brian also has health problems with his heart
    and is on medication. Faye reported that Brian's doctor
    said he is making vast improvements in his health but at
    this point it is not clear if the improvements are due to
    stemenhance or his new medication - I guess time will tell.

    Leslie - My friend Leslie has a brain tumor and two months
    ago she got an MRI reading that was not good - her
    condition had deteriorated so she decided to go on
    Stemenhance.

    As I have talked with Leslie over the past two months I
    personally have noticed a big difference. Her
    concentration is better and her conversation is more
    coherent. She looks great and has been attending a lot
    more church functions.

    I believe her organic diet and healthy lifestyle is
    complementing the StemRelease but one thing I thought was
    very encouraging was this - Leslie mentioned that when she
    doesn't do her exercises everyday she generally
    deteriorates.

    Whilst being on StemRelease when she misses her exercises
    the deterioration isn't as noticeable - lets say the
    Stemenhance is sort of compensating for the times she
    doesn't exercise.

    Brandon - my friend Brandon has muscular distrophy which
    the doctors say is incurable. With muscular distrophy,
    when you get to middle age, deterioration can set in more
    rapidly.

    While Brandon has been on StemRelease for the past 7 months
    he says he has not deteriorated and mentioned that at times
    his energy levels are much higher than normal. It's still
    early days but those signs are very encouraging.

    Brandon's wife - At one point Brandon mentioned his wife
    was taking some of his StemRelease capsules because she
    loved the extra energy it was giving her.

    soared when she started taking her husband’s StemRelease
    capsules.

    Joseph - One of my ex employers told me that his wife's
    nephew in India had a severe problem with his knee.

    After taking StemRelease for a short time he reported that
    his knee felt much better and that he was able to walk
    with more ease.

    I believe Stemenhance is the number one health supplement
    in the world - there is nothing else like it on the market.

    This product gives your body the vital nutrition it needs
    for the bone marrow to create and proliferate new adult
    stem cells naturally in the body.

    As we get older we all need more adult stem cells because
    stem cells are the body’s natural renewal system.

    I can't speak highly enough of this product which has had
    such a profound impact on my life and that of my friends.
    Kind regards, Kerensa Grigson

  • ARCHAEOLOGY NEWSFLASH NO.728

    CITIES UNDER THE SEA?

    there's a very special surprise for you at the end of this
    Newsflash. But first:

    Explorers keep reporting apparent under-sea ruins off the coasts
    of Cuba, Bimini and elsewhere in the Caribbean.

    The seabed remains off Cuba are at a depth of 2,000 feet. Assuming
    that these are man-made, would suggest that this dramatic drop
    occurred around 2000 BC during the period of crustal adjustment
    following the global cataclysm known among all cultures as the
    Great Flood. (My date for this event is 2345 BC – arrived at from
    at least 8 natural dating clocks).

    (Toward the end of this report I shall say more on this dramatic
    drop in the land level.)

    Also, it should also be borne in mind that for 4,000 years, the
    world’s sea level has been inching up – though not to the extent of
    2,000 feet as would apply to the seabed off Cuba.

    This gradual rise in sea level has been caused by
    (a) the melting of the post-Flood ice and
    (b) the gradual evaporation or outflow of post-Flood inland basins
    to the sea.

    The gradual rise of the oceans is thus another clear aftermath of
    the Deluge. Flood waters left behind on the land, in the form of ice
    or inland lakes, have been gradually returning to the oceans. The
    result has been not only a drying out of the land, but a corresponding
    rise in sea level.

    The Hadji Ahmed map of 1559, whose original source dates back thousands
    of years, shows a landbridge between Siberia and Alaska, which existed
    when the original map waws drawn (from which Ahmed later copied).

    If the ocean between these two land masses were lowered 100 feet today,
    there would be a dry-land path between them.

    According to some oceanographers and geologists, the ocean level may
    have been as much as 500 feet lower than today.

    Ireland was connected with England; the North Sea was a great plain;
    Italy was joined to Africa, and exposed land cut the Mediterranean into
    two lakes.

    Since then, the rising seas have engulfed coastal land and islands,
    turning isthmuses into straits and large islands into underwater
    plateaus.

    Along many of the world’s shorelines are lost islands, now deep below
    the sea, with remains of cities, palaces and temples.

    THE CONTINENTAL SHELF

    In fact, most of the continental shelf, which marks the true boundaries
    between the ocean basins and the continental areas, now lies under a
    mean depth of 430 feet of water. (It ranges from 300 feet to about
    1,500 feet.)

    The present continental shelf probably defines the edge of the oceans
    as they developed during the post-Flood glacial peak. With the ice melt
    and the draining or evaporation of inland basins, the seas rose, with
    minor fluctuations, to their present level.

    “The ocean basins can thus be characterized as overfull – water not
    only fills the ocean basins proper, but extends out over the low margins
    of the continents.” So concludes a panel of geologists.

    Oceanographers and geologists generally agree that a dramatic, rapid
    rise of water occurred several thousand years ago. This has slowed to
    about 1.5 feet per century.

    UNDERSEA CANYONS

    Around the world’s coastlines are undersea river canyons, which were
    once above the ocean. Such canyons cannot be cut underwater.

    * The submerged Hudson Canyon, one hundred miles long and hundreds of
    feet deep, could only have been formed above water when this extension
    of the Hudson River was dry land.
    * Off the coast of Europe are the Loire, Rhone, Seine and Tagus canyons.
    The drowned Rhine Valley runs under the North Sea to disappear between
    Norway and Scotland – showing that the North Sea was dry land.
    * Numerous other canyons were cut at the edge of the former ocean basin
    (now submerged) : La Plata in Argentina, the Delaware and St. Lawrence
    in North America, the Congo in West Africa. Off the African west coast
    are submerged river canyons whose rivers no longer exist in the
    now-arid land.

    All these canyons were cut out above water. Now they are submerged.

    ANCIENT MAPS SHOW
    NOW-DROWNED ISLANDS

    The curious Buache map was copied from sources whose origins are lost in
    antiquity. This ancient “treasure map” portrays correctly the location
    of the Canary Islands and the correct outline of an underwater plateau
    which formed their extended shape before the oceans rose.

    Anciently, the Greek islands would have been larger and more numerous,
    as well. The Ibn Ben Zara map of 1487 (likewise copied from charts
    apparently thousands of years old) does in fact show many islands which
    are now under water.

    OCEAN POURED INTO
    MEDITERRANEAN AND BLACK SEA

    In fact, there is evidence suggesting that as the ocean level rose, it
    back-filled the Mediterranean.

    And as the Mediterranean rose, it back-filled the Black Sea. Consequently,
    a number of post-Flood roads and settlements became permanently submerged.

    This explains the drowned remains found in the Black Sea by Russian
    scientists in the 1950s and later by Robert Ballard.

    During an exploration of the seabed, Soviet archaeologists discovered the
    legendary town of Diosuria at the bottom of the Black sea, off Sukhumi.

    Then, in September, 2000, at 311 feet beneath the surface of the Black
    Sea, Ballard’s team, with a submersible, discovered a collapsed man-made
    building with planks and beams.

    Ballard said, “If you drained it back, it would be rolling countryside
    with meandering streams. We located the countryside and located the river
    systems.”

    The media saw this as evidence of a local flood that may have inspired
    the biblical story of Noah.

    How little do they know! What Ballard found was a post-Flood regional
    catastrophe that occurred several hundred years after the world-wide Flood
    – when melting glaciers raised sea level until the waters of the
    Mediterranean breached the natural dam of the Bosphorus.

    Sea water which had first come in from the Atlantic to fill the
    Mediterranean, now from the Mediterranean poured into the Black Sea basin.

    It poured in at 200 times the volume of Niagara Falls. The heavier salt
    water plunged to the bottom of the existing fresh water lake and began to
    fill the basin like a bathtub. This rising lake-sea inundated and submerged
    thousands of square miles of land, destroying local communities, killing
    people and wiping out plants and animals. But that was NOT Noah’s Flood.

    DROWNED CITIES

    In the Mediterranean, silting – as well as uplifting – of land has
    occurred - so that some ancient ports, such as Ephesus, Priene and Miletus
    are now miles from the sea. And the remains of the former ancient harbour
    city of Phalassarna, in Crete, lie 20 feet above sea level, on the cliffs!

    Conversely, other ruins, such as a temple at Pozzuoli on the coast of
    Italy have sunk… then come back up again. This temple now shows the
    distinct holes left by underwater borers from prolonged immersion
    20 feet under the sea!

    In the Mediterranean, earth movements resulting from earthquakes and
    volcanoes account for most of the submerged cities, but not all.
    Because of the general rising of the water level of the Mediterranean,
    large sections of cities well known to history are now under water.

    Among these are Baise (a sort of ancient Las Vegas), numerous points along
    Italy’s western coast, cities along the Adriatic coast of Yugoslavia,
    parts of Syracuse in Sicily, Lepis Magna in Libya, as well as the ancient
    harbours of Tyre and Caesarea.

    There are more than 250 known drowned cities in the Mediterranean.

    Helike is believed to lie on the sea bottom near Corinth. In ancient
    times this sunken city was a tourist attraction for Roman visitors to
    Greece. They used to pass over it in boats, admiring the ruins visible
    through the clear water. The statue of Zeus, still standing, was clearly
    visible on the bottom.

    The small island of Malta, with its giant megaliths, gives evidence of
    having once been part of a larger, now drowned, land.

    ROADS DISAPPEAR INTO THE DEEP

    A thousand feet offshore from the island of Melos are the ruins of an
    ancient city at a depth extending to 400 feet. From it there branch out
    roads, descending even deeper – to unknown destinations.
    Jacques Costeau found on the sea bottom another paved road far out in the
    Mediterranean.
    Sicily was once joined to Italy by land over which ships now sail.

    HOW COULD MAN-MADE REMAINS BE 2,000 FEET UNDER?

    As for the seabed remains at a depth of 2,000 feet off Cuba, the
    evidence suggests this occurred around 2000 BC during the period of
    crustal adjustment following the global cataclysm known as the
    Great Flood.

    It took the earth’s crust millennia to settle down. During the adjustment,
    lava continued to flow. Isolated areas of land were submerged or raised
    thousands of feet.

    Today these effects are being felt only to a comparatively minor degree.

    Still, it should be mentioned that even in modern times, the ocean has
    been known to raise or lower its islands or its depths, as much as
    thousands of feet. No need to invoke long evolutionary periods.

    THE EARTH’S SURFACE CAN CHANGE RAPIDLY

    In my book “The Corpse Came Back” and also in one of my DVDs is a report
    on the raising of Tiahuanaco, around 2000 BC from sea level to its
    current elevation of 12,000 feet above sea level.This South American
    site was once a seaport. Now it sits on the Andes Range.

    RECENT EXAMPLES OF
    RAPID UP OR DOWN THRUSTS

    * Did you know that a recent Chilean earthquake elevated parts of the
    coastline 1,000 feet?

    * Alaska's Good Friday earthquake of March, 1964, lowered the floor
    of Seward harbour by 315 feet.

    * During the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, a new marble quay upon which
    crowds of people had collected for safety, suddenly sank. The water
    now covers it by 600 feet.

    * Tuanaki Island in the Cook group sank into the Pacific Ocean with
    13,000 inhabitants in 1843. One morning, fishermen left the island
    in their boats. When they returned home at night, the island was
    gone.

    * In 1923, technicians of a Western Telegraph ship searching for a
    lost cable in the Atlantic Ocean detected that the cable had been
    thrown up by the rising ocean bed 2¼ miles in only 25 years.
    That's right. A 12,000 foot rise in one spot!

    * Again, in 1929, the Great Banks seaquake resulted in the cutting of
    the northern series of transatlantic cables. When the cables were
    repaired, measurements of the sea floor indicated that certain
    areas had suddenly risen almost 5,000 feet.

    * In May, 1973, part of the Banin Trench near Japan rose 6,000 feet.

    * The 1960 earthquake which wiped out the Moroccan city of Agadir,
    uplifted the land from about 90 feet (close to the shore) to around
    3,300 feet (several miles from the shore). This occurred in only
    45 seconds!

    * In Japan, a few years later, a two-minute quake sank the bottom of
    the sea around Izu Peninsula well over 1,000 feet. It also sank
    many houses in the new subdivisions along the coast right into the
    shale bedrock, which liquified. This led to comprehensive research
    in Japan to determine how long and of what strength a quake need be
    to cause rock liquefaction. The result was startling. It was found
    that medium strength metamorphic rock can liquefy within minutes.

    CANOES 4,000 FEET UP ON CLIFFS

    On January 26, 1700 the coastal area of British Columbia and north
    western U.S.A. was hit by a massive earthquake. A tsunami surged across
    the Pacific Ocean to Japan. People there recorded the date.

    Astonishingly, archaeologists have found remains of canoes on the edges
    of almost vertical cliffs, as high up as 4,000 feet above sea level!

    Today’s native elders relate that their ancestors had to run for high
    mountains… how raging sea carried some of them in their canoes high up
    the cliffs, where they survived. Heroic deeds of survivors
    are still recited.

    Here, then, is evidence of either a sudden, violent uplifting of the
    coast to a height of 4,000 feet, or, as the local people claim, a strong
    earthquake which created a tsunami up to 4,000 feet in height.
    This quake occurred between Vancouver Island and the mainland, which
    has a variable distance of plus/minus only 16 miles (25 kilometres) of
    open sea. This tsunami rushed into a narrow inlet where the town of
    Bella Coola is today.

    LAND RISES 4,000 FEET

    During an earthquake off the northern tip of Sumatra
    on December 26, 2004, the sea bottom in the Straits of Malacca
    uplifted almost 4,000 in only about 3 minutes.

    The US-based National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, which analyses
    spy satellite imagery and produces maps and charts for the Defence
    Department, was reported to have received information that one area
    of the Straits of Malacca, which separates Malaysia from the Indonesian
    island of Sumatra had its depth cut from 4,060 feet to 105 feet.

    In another affected area, a merchant marine ship logged that the depth
    was cut from 3,855 feet to just 92 feet. The US Navy reportedly sent
    two ships to re-chart the waters. Sonar images from British navy ship
    HMS Scott showed the massive uplift of a large area 10 kilometres wide
    and up to 1.5 kilometres high (4,800 feet plus).

    It is by no means impossible, therefore, that the remains on the
    Caribbean seabed could be man-made and were dropped suddenly in the
    past few thousand years.

    ARCHAEOLOGY NEWSFLASH NO.728 CITIES UNDER THE SEA? there's a very special surprise for you at the end of this Newsflash. But first: Explorers keep reporting apparent under-sea ruins off the coasts of Cuba, Bimini and elsewhere in the Caribbean. The seabed remains off Cuba are at a depth of 2,000 feet. Assuming that these are man-made, would suggest that this dramatic drop occurred around 2000 BC during the period of crustal adjustment following the global cataclysm known among all cultures as the Great Flood. (My date for this event is 2345 BC – arrived at from at least 8 natural dating clocks). (Toward the end of this report I shall say more on this dramatic drop in the land level.) Also, it should also be borne in mind that for 4,000 years, the world’s sea level has been inching up – though not to the extent of 2,000 feet as would apply to the seabed off Cuba. This gradual rise in sea level has been caused by (a) the melting of the post-Flood ice and (b) the gradual evaporation or outflow of post-Flood inland basins to the sea. The gradual rise of the oceans is thus another clear aftermath of the Deluge. Flood waters left behind on the land, in the form of ice or inland lakes, have been gradually returning to the oceans. The result has been not only a drying out of the land, but a corresponding rise in sea level. The Hadji Ahmed map of 1559, whose original source dates back thousands of years, shows a landbridge between Siberia and Alaska, which existed when the original map waws drawn (from which Ahmed later copied). If the ocean between these two land masses were lowered 100 feet today, there would be a dry-land path between them. According to some oceanographers and geologists, the ocean level may have been as much as 500 feet lower than today. Ireland was connected with England; the North Sea was a great plain; Italy was joined to Africa, and exposed land cut the Mediterranean into two lakes. Since then, the rising seas have engulfed coastal land and islands, turning isthmuses into straits and large islands into underwater plateaus. Along many of the world’s shorelines are lost islands, now deep below the sea, with remains of cities, palaces and temples. THE CONTINENTAL SHELF In fact, most of the continental shelf, which marks the true boundaries between the ocean basins and the continental areas, now lies under a mean depth of 430 feet of water. (It ranges from 300 feet to about 1,500 feet.) The present continental shelf probably defines the edge of the oceans as they developed during the post-Flood glacial peak. With the ice melt and the draining or evaporation of inland basins, the seas rose, with minor fluctuations, to their present level. “The ocean basins can thus be characterized as overfull – water not only fills the ocean basins proper, but extends out over the low margins of the continents.” So concludes a panel of geologists. Oceanographers and geologists generally agree that a dramatic, rapid rise of water occurred several thousand years ago. This has slowed to about 1.5 feet per century. UNDERSEA CANYONS Around the world’s coastlines are undersea river canyons, which were once above the ocean. Such canyons cannot be cut underwater. * The submerged Hudson Canyon, one hundred miles long and hundreds of feet deep, could only have been formed above water when this extension of the Hudson River was dry land. * Off the coast of Europe are the Loire, Rhone, Seine and Tagus canyons. The drowned Rhine Valley runs under the North Sea to disappear between Norway and Scotland – showing that the North Sea was dry land. * Numerous other canyons were cut at the edge of the former ocean basin (now submerged) : La Plata in Argentina, the Delaware and St. Lawrence in North America, the Congo in West Africa. Off the African west coast are submerged river canyons whose rivers no longer exist in the now-arid land. All these canyons were cut out above water. Now they are submerged. ANCIENT MAPS SHOW NOW-DROWNED ISLANDS The curious Buache map was copied from sources whose origins are lost in antiquity. This ancient “treasure map” portrays correctly the location of the Canary Islands and the correct outline of an underwater plateau which formed their extended shape before the oceans rose. Anciently, the Greek islands would have been larger and more numerous, as well. The Ibn Ben Zara map of 1487 (likewise copied from charts apparently thousands of years old) does in fact show many islands which are now under water. OCEAN POURED INTO MEDITERRANEAN AND BLACK SEA In fact, there is evidence suggesting that as the ocean level rose, it back-filled the Mediterranean. And as the Mediterranean rose, it back-filled the Black Sea. Consequently, a number of post-Flood roads and settlements became permanently submerged. This explains the drowned remains found in the Black Sea by Russian scientists in the 1950s and later by Robert Ballard. During an exploration of the seabed, Soviet archaeologists discovered the legendary town of Diosuria at the bottom of the Black sea, off Sukhumi. Then, in September, 2000, at 311 feet beneath the surface of the Black Sea, Ballard’s team, with a submersible, discovered a collapsed man-made building with planks and beams. Ballard said, “If you drained it back, it would be rolling countryside with meandering streams. We located the countryside and located the river systems.” The media saw this as evidence of a local flood that may have inspired the biblical story of Noah. How little do they know! What Ballard found was a post-Flood regional catastrophe that occurred several hundred years after the world-wide Flood – when melting glaciers raised sea level until the waters of the Mediterranean breached the natural dam of the Bosphorus. Sea water which had first come in from the Atlantic to fill the Mediterranean, now from the Mediterranean poured into the Black Sea basin. It poured in at 200 times the volume of Niagara Falls. The heavier salt water plunged to the bottom of the existing fresh water lake and began to fill the basin like a bathtub. This rising lake-sea inundated and submerged thousands of square miles of land, destroying local communities, killing people and wiping out plants and animals. But that was NOT Noah’s Flood. DROWNED CITIES In the Mediterranean, silting – as well as uplifting – of land has occurred - so that some ancient ports, such as Ephesus, Priene and Miletus are now miles from the sea. And the remains of the former ancient harbour city of Phalassarna, in Crete, lie 20 feet above sea level, on the cliffs! Conversely, other ruins, such as a temple at Pozzuoli on the coast of Italy have sunk… then come back up again. This temple now shows the distinct holes left by underwater borers from prolonged immersion 20 feet under the sea! In the Mediterranean, earth movements resulting from earthquakes and volcanoes account for most of the submerged cities, but not all. Because of the general rising of the water level of the Mediterranean, large sections of cities well known to history are now under water. Among these are Baise (a sort of ancient Las Vegas), numerous points along Italy’s western coast, cities along the Adriatic coast of Yugoslavia, parts of Syracuse in Sicily, Lepis Magna in Libya, as well as the ancient harbours of Tyre and Caesarea. There are more than 250 known drowned cities in the Mediterranean. Helike is believed to lie on the sea bottom near Corinth. In ancient times this sunken city was a tourist attraction for Roman visitors to Greece. They used to pass over it in boats, admiring the ruins visible through the clear water. The statue of Zeus, still standing, was clearly visible on the bottom. The small island of Malta, with its giant megaliths, gives evidence of having once been part of a larger, now drowned, land. ROADS DISAPPEAR INTO THE DEEP A thousand feet offshore from the island of Melos are the ruins of an ancient city at a depth extending to 400 feet. From it there branch out roads, descending even deeper – to unknown destinations. Jacques Costeau found on the sea bottom another paved road far out in the Mediterranean. Sicily was once joined to Italy by land over which ships now sail. HOW COULD MAN-MADE REMAINS BE 2,000 FEET UNDER? As for the seabed remains at a depth of 2,000 feet off Cuba, the evidence suggests this occurred around 2000 BC during the period of crustal adjustment following the global cataclysm known as the Great Flood. It took the earth’s crust millennia to settle down. During the adjustment, lava continued to flow. Isolated areas of land were submerged or raised thousands of feet. Today these effects are being felt only to a comparatively minor degree. Still, it should be mentioned that even in modern times, the ocean has been known to raise or lower its islands or its depths, as much as thousands of feet. No need to invoke long evolutionary periods. THE EARTH’S SURFACE CAN CHANGE RAPIDLY In my book “The Corpse Came Back” and also in one of my DVDs is a report on the raising of Tiahuanaco, around 2000 BC from sea level to its current elevation of 12,000 feet above sea level.This South American site was once a seaport. Now it sits on the Andes Range. RECENT EXAMPLES OF RAPID UP OR DOWN THRUSTS * Did you know that a recent Chilean earthquake elevated parts of the coastline 1,000 feet? * Alaska's Good Friday earthquake of March, 1964, lowered the floor of Seward harbour by 315 feet. * During the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, a new marble quay upon which crowds of people had collected for safety, suddenly sank. The water now covers it by 600 feet. * Tuanaki Island in the Cook group sank into the Pacific Ocean with 13,000 inhabitants in 1843. One morning, fishermen left the island in their boats. When they returned home at night, the island was gone. * In 1923, technicians of a Western Telegraph ship searching for a lost cable in the Atlantic Ocean detected that the cable had been thrown up by the rising ocean bed 2¼ miles in only 25 years. That's right. A 12,000 foot rise in one spot! * Again, in 1929, the Great Banks seaquake resulted in the cutting of the northern series of transatlantic cables. When the cables were repaired, measurements of the sea floor indicated that certain areas had suddenly risen almost 5,000 feet. * In May, 1973, part of the Banin Trench near Japan rose 6,000 feet. * The 1960 earthquake which wiped out the Moroccan city of Agadir, uplifted the land from about 90 feet (close to the shore) to around 3,300 feet (several miles from the shore). This occurred in only 45 seconds! * In Japan, a few years later, a two-minute quake sank the bottom of the sea around Izu Peninsula well over 1,000 feet. It also sank many houses in the new subdivisions along the coast right into the shale bedrock, which liquified. This led to comprehensive research in Japan to determine how long and of what strength a quake need be to cause rock liquefaction. The result was startling. It was found that medium strength metamorphic rock can liquefy within minutes. CANOES 4,000 FEET UP ON CLIFFS On January 26, 1700 the coastal area of British Columbia and north western U.S.A. was hit by a massive earthquake. A tsunami surged across the Pacific Ocean to Japan. People there recorded the date. Astonishingly, archaeologists have found remains of canoes on the edges of almost vertical cliffs, as high up as 4,000 feet above sea level! Today’s native elders relate that their ancestors had to run for high mountains… how raging sea carried some of them in their canoes high up the cliffs, where they survived. Heroic deeds of survivors are still recited. Here, then, is evidence of either a sudden, violent uplifting of the coast to a height of 4,000 feet, or, as the local people claim, a strong earthquake which created a tsunami up to 4,000 feet in height. This quake occurred between Vancouver Island and the mainland, which has a variable distance of plus/minus only 16 miles (25 kilometres) of open sea. This tsunami rushed into a narrow inlet where the town of Bella Coola is today. LAND RISES 4,000 FEET During an earthquake off the northern tip of Sumatra on December 26, 2004, the sea bottom in the Straits of Malacca uplifted almost 4,000 in only about 3 minutes. The US-based National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, which analyses spy satellite imagery and produces maps and charts for the Defence Department, was reported to have received information that one area of the Straits of Malacca, which separates Malaysia from the Indonesian island of Sumatra had its depth cut from 4,060 feet to 105 feet. In another affected area, a merchant marine ship logged that the depth was cut from 3,855 feet to just 92 feet. The US Navy reportedly sent two ships to re-chart the waters. Sonar images from British navy ship HMS Scott showed the massive uplift of a large area 10 kilometres wide and up to 1.5 kilometres high (4,800 feet plus). It is by no means impossible, therefore, that the remains on the Caribbean seabed could be man-made and were dropped suddenly in the past few thousand years.
