    CONSTRUCTION WORKERS’ SHOCK

    Yes, have you heard? All over the world, more amazing facts are being discovered. For example...

    EGYPT

    * Did you hear about the construction workers in Alexandria who were frozen in shock when they broke into a burial vault, because it contained bones of people twice our height?

    * That an ancient bullet hole has been found in the skull of an Egyptian mummy?

    * Did you know that the earliest pyramids were not tombs?

    * Are you aware of the surprising secrets down in Egypt’s underground Labyrinth?

    * Ever-burning lamps: An Egyptian papyrus describes the experience of ancient explorers who gained entry to under- ground chambers: "We came to a chamber. When we entered, it became automatically illuminated by light from a tube being the height of one man's hand. And as we came closer it shone brighter."

    INDIA

    * Radioactivity in an ancient nuclear-bombed city in Rajasthan is reportedly still so intense that the area is highly dangerous. What kind of radioactivity is this?

    CHINA

    Did you know that

    * A Chinese fleet was incinerated at sea, then washed high up onto cliff tops?

    * In China, a royal neck ornament created a force field that no metallic object could penetrate. This force field was about a 12 ft. circle around the person, protecting him from any metallic weapon aimed at him.

    * Have you heard about the dangerous mechanical devices in an ancient Chinese tomb? After discovering a secret palace hidden in China's first emperor massive burial complex, Chinese technicians are nervous. Not because Qin Shi Huang's tomb is the most important archaeological discovery since Tutankhamen, but because they believe his burial place is full of deadly traps that will kill any trespassers. Not to mention deadly quantities of mercury.

    THE AMERICAS

    * Who caused the ancient nuclear destruction in North America?

    * Did you know that North America was surveyed, mapped and carefully described about 2000 BC?

    * And Marco Polo, merchant traveller of Venice, Italy, visited not only China, but came all the way from Europe to Alaska in the 13th century?

    * When an ancient underground complex was unearthed in Southern California, containing artefacts of aluminium and plastic, and pictures of flying craft, advanced surgery, and men walking with dinosaurs... Why did two U.S. Army officers, a major and a captain arrive with 8 army troops and seize the land? Why was the property gutted within days and filled with fresh soil? Why did someone break into the archaeology office overnight and steal all the pictures and artefacts they had collected. And when the property owner challenged the army officers about what they were doing. Why did the major look at him and say, "It would be a shame to have to kill you right here and now"?

    * Did you hear about the more recent adventurers who have explored the Grand Canyon caves that conceal ancient Egyptian remains?

    * Did you know that ancient tunnel systems are still used today by certain Mayans who can ‘pop up’ many miles from their home locations at a lot of places in Central America, and visit with friends and family members without being detected by Government forces out to kill or capture them?

    * What happened to all the Inca gold that the Spanish invaders missed?

    * See amazing terraces "impossibly" inlaid into vertical slopes perched 3,000 feet over the canyon - too steep to be accessible, let alone hurl up those monstrous stones, or even for the workmen to hang on while they fitted them up there!

    * What are the mysterious forces that emanate from the Bermuda Triangle? Is there an ancient power source from a drowned civilisation?

    EUROPE, RUSSIA

    * Oh, and what about this? A huge but mysterious tunnel has now been discovered that crosses under Europe and links Scotland to Turkey?

    * Or this? Newly found ruins in Russia contain the largest stone building blocks ever discovered?

    * Have you heard about the ancient "circuit board" mirror found in a mine thousands of feet deep - which, when you keep touching it, shows page after page of a story (now translated), and shows photo-graphs - 15 pictures of what appears to be the same family?

    * Crimea - Mt Ai-Petri: Why is a mooring ring for tying up sea-going vessels fixed into rock near a mountain top?

    * Were you aware that a "natural" Bosnian hill may contain a massive pyramid?

    * And get this! Roman emperor Nero's "revolving banquet room" has been found?

    MIDDLE EAST

    * Still hidden in a cave is a copper scroll which describes a hidden cache of gold and silver buried in more than 60 locations throughout Israel. The monetary value is close to $3 billion, but the historical value is priceless.

    * There are deserted cities in Syria – about a hundred of them – and still in a remarkable state of preservation, that no modern tourists have ever seen.

    * To escape capture, the most priceless artefact on earth was transported underground by means of an ingenious elevator system that lowered it through the floor to a secret tunnel system. Would you like see how this was done?

    AFRICA

    * Did you know that graves have been discovered from the green period, before the Sahara became desert?

    ANTARCTICA

    * Did a TV crew really film a city under the ice, then go missing?

    THE WORLD

    * Discover the many similarities between ancient medical knowledge and practice to medical knowledge and practice today.

    * Were you aware that ancient musical scales were very specific,even to the point of precise mathematical relationships between vibration frequencies of the various notes of a scale? The scales that we use today are the same as those used in China 4,000 years ago. The same musical scales were used by the Greeks and the Indians of western North America. Even today, among the western Canadian Indians of British Columbia there are songs that use a Greek scale like the one on the piano’s white keys going down from the note e.

    * And believe it or not, lathes were used anciently to manufacture domestic utensils. Just see how beautifully perfect they are.

    * How did the ancient races know that weightlessness can be produced by sound?

    * Genetic engineering? Yes, it was carried on 4,400 years ago.

    * And the ancient races also understood and used electronics!

    * And they used robots and automatic doors.

    * Explore with me under the sea to discover drowned ruins.

    * What is the truth about Atlantis?

    * Did you know that the Black Knight satellite, blasted into space thousands of years ago is still orbiting the earth?

    * Have you heard about the 4,000 year old statue found on the moon?

    COAL MINE SECRETS

    * Did you know that ancient men and man-made artefacts have been found buried deep in numerous coal mines?

    * And did you know that advanced technology has been discovered deeply buried in coal mines?

    DINOSAURS

    * Have you seen some of the eyewitness testimonies from modern excavations that have unearthed physical evidence of ancient man co-existing with dinosaurs?

    * Are there still "flying dinosaurs alive today? Yes, there have been repeated sightings of pterodactyls in Mexico. One interesting thing is that they all were daylight sightings. Plans are afoot to capture one, if possible, alive.

    * And have you heard of the modern sightings of giant flying creatures over Australia? Read an eyewitness report.

    HERE... AT LONG LAST!

    "Can you please make this information available to us?" said Amy. "I can hardly wait."

  • Answering Rights Groups' Call, UN Human Rights Panel Demands Trump Admin Address Water Justice
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/04/08/answering-rights-groups-call-un-human-rights-panel-demands-trump-admin-address-water
    Julia Conley, staff writer

    Three months after a human rights coalition called on the United Nations to address the American government's failure to ensure water justice for its residents, the international body included access to clean water in a list of human rights issues the U.S. must address.

    In its periodic review of the U.S., the U.N. Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) specifically called out the water crisis in Flint, Michigan as one of the items it needs to address, as well as making sure all citizens have access to safe and clean water:

    Please indicate what steps the State party is taking to ensure access to safe and clean water for its population.

    Specifically describe efforts to remedy the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, as well as efforts to keep water affordable for low-income populations when publicly owned water services are privatized.

    Further clarify the State party’s initiatives to address significant threats to the right to life posed by impacts of climate change such as flash floods, coastal flooding, wildfires, infectious disease, extreme heat and air pollution.

    The statement indicates a "huge step forward" for the UNHRC and climate justice, Food & Water Watch (FWW) said Monday.

    "This is the first evidence we've seen that the U.N. is codifying not only clean, affordable water but also climate justice as civil rights issues," Maude Barlow, board chair of FWW and former senior advisor to the U.N. on water issues, said in a statement.

    "This is a huge step forward for the U.N.-enshrined human right to water."

    Along with the Environmental Justice Coalition for Water, the Alabama Center for Rural Enterprise, and In the Public Interest, Food & Water Watch wrote to the UNHRC in January asking that they recognize water justice as a human rights issue under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

    As Common Dreams reported last week, the UNHRC also demanded to know what steps the U.S. is taking to protect the "right to life" from the climate crisis, which has contributed to wildfires as well as increasingly destructive hurricanes and flooding.

    Now that some of the world's top human rights officials have formally recognized that the U.S. has violated its citizens' fundamental rights by cutting off access to drinking water—especially as the Trump administration has rolled back regulations on water pollution and a federal judge acknowledged last week that Michigan's former governor may have helped cover up Flint's water crisis—Congress must follow suit, FWW said.

    "Trump and many in Congress continue to enable industry to use and abuse the planet that sustains us for profit," executive director Wenonah Hauter said.

    "Federal policy must do a complete U-turn to keep us in compliance with international human rights law.

    Congress must pass legislation that swiftly moves us away from fossil fuels and provides public funding to upgrade our water systems to ensure the human right to water."

  • ARCHAEOLOGY NEWSFLASH NO.751

    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.

    =====================================
    ARCHAEOLOGY NEWSFLASH NO.751 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.

    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?

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?

    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

    I have been prompted to repeat the important message
    sent out earlier this week. If you have already received
    this, then you may disregard this message.

    I invite you to come with me, now, on an adventure
    you’ll never forget. What awaits you is an amazing journey
    as you come face to face with a weird world of seemingly
    endless questions…

    TANTALIZING QUESTIONS

    You may have heard about those mysterious caves in the
    Grand Canyon? First discovered in the 1800s, they contained
    Egyptian-style artefacts.

    Others have been exploring since. Robert Morgan has emailed
    me concerning his visits.

    "In the past 20 years," he says, "I have spent much time in the
    caves in the Grand Canyon. One in particular, you need scuba
    gear to make it through the first cavern filled body of water.

    "This cavern is about a block long, and opens up into a very
    large room which then branches off into several corridors.
    Many petroglyphs await the explorer. It definitely appears to be
    of the Egyptian period.

    "There are many man made closed off corridors. What is behind
    them? Our next trip to the Grand Canyon may reveal much about
    the closed off corridors. If I make
    it back, maybe I can enlighten you on what we found. The
    exploring within the caves, is NOT FOR THE TIMID!"

    There are many scary places on earth - unexplored, or partly
    explored. And many long-lost secrets are re-surfacing.
    So, [Name},...

    CHINESE DISCOVERY REPORT

    I have been asked about a joint Turkish-Chinese
    expedition that claimed to have found Noah’s Ark on
    Mount Ararat in Turkey.

    They took pictures of what they alleged were inside a
    structure that contained wooden beams carbon-dated to
    4,800 years old.

    However, a member of the expedition, Dr Randall Price,
    reports:

    “I was the archaeologist with the Chinese expedition in
    the summer of 2008 and was given photos of what they now
    are reporting to be the inside of the Ark.

    “I and my partners invested $100,000 in this expedition,
    which they have retained, despite their promise and our
    requests to return it, since it was not used for the
    expedition.

    “The information given below is my opinion based on what
    I have seen and heard (from others who claim to have been
    eyewitnesses or know the exact details).

    “To make a long story short: this is all reported to be a
    fake. The photos were reputed to have been taken off site
    near the Black Sea, but the film footage the Chinese now
    have was shot on location on Mt. Ararat.

    “In the late summer of 2008 ten Kurdish workers hired by
    Parasut, the guide used by the Chinese, are said to have
    planted large wood beams taken from an old structure in
    the Black Sea area (where the photos were originally
    taken) at the Mt. Ararat site.

    “In the winter of 2008 a Chinese climber taken by
    Parasut’s men to the site saw the wood, but couldn’t get
    inside because of the severe weather conditions.

    “During the summer of 2009 more wood was planted inside a
    cave at the site.

    “The Chinese team went in the late summer of 2009 (I was
    there at the time and knew about the hoax) and was shown
    the cave with the wood and made their film.

    “As I said, I have the photos of the inside of the s
    o- called Ark (that show cobwebs in the corners of rafters –
    something just not possible in these conditions) and our
    Kurdish partner in Dogubabyazit (the village at the foot
    of Mt. Ararat) has all of the facts about the location,
    the men who planted the wood, and even the truck that
    transported it.”

    In short, Randall was duped.

    THE JAMMAL MT ARARAT HOAX

    This is certainly not the first time phony claims have
    been floated.

    Among the best-known scams is one from 1993, when
    California actor George Jammal deliberately duped CBS
    Television and the filmmakers of "The Incredible
    Discovery of Noah's Ark" into believing he saw and
    touched the vessel on Mount Ararat.

    Jammal made the hoax as blatant as possible, making up
    persons with names such as “the Armenian friend, Mr.
    Allis Buls Hitian” or “my dear Polish companion Vladimir
    Sobitchsky”, and cooking a piece of pine in sauce to
    present it as “a piece of the Ark”.

    And yet his story was presented as the real thing and
    shown as the key testimony in the video; after some time,
    humiliating its makers, Jammal publicly revealed the
    details of his hoax.

    In our popular book “The Ark Conspiracy” are related other
    false reports.

    NAVARRA’S WOOD “DISCOVERY”

    For example, a Frenchman, Ferdinand Navarra, climbed
    Ararat three times in the 1950s.

    After his first expedition, he claimed to have seen an
    unusual dark patch within the ice, which was a ship’s
    hull.

    The discovery was at approximately 14,000 feet
    altitude.

    During a third climb, on July 6, 1955, Navarra
    “discovered” hand-hewn timber on the slope.

    LACK OF EVIDENCE

    From numerous claimed sightings of the Ark during the
    20th century, the belief grew that the Ark lay partly
    hidden by ice on a large ledge 13,000 to 15,000 feet up
    on Mount Ararat.

    The public was fascinated. And I was “hooked” on the
    gigantic Mount Ararat as being the site.

    In my scientific research I had investigated hundreds of
    archaeological reports and was well aware of the
    difference between anecdote and evidence.

    One thing had been bothering me.

    For more than seventy years, so many expeditions had
    failed to produce any hard evidence.

    Great stories were told, which captivated the listener;
    but of all the rumoured sightings, none had ever been
    authenticated.

    Photographs reportedly taken had either been lost or
    considered inconclusive.

    Then my attention was drawn to the site twelve miles
    south of Mount Ararat proper - the site to which American
    archaeologist Ron Wyatt kept returning.

    Ron supplied a stunning piece of information - the
    “anchor stones”.

    That got me started - reluctantly. I was keen on the
    Mount Ararat site, to the rumours of a ship high up in a
    canyon half buried in ice. I didn’t want to believe that
    THIS thing covered in mud on a plateau to the south was
    the Ark.

    I went out with a whole brief case full of objections to
    shoot down Wyatt’s claim.

    “WHAT ABOUT ALL THOSE ARARAT SIGHTINGS?” I kept asking.
    What about the reports in Rene Noorbergen’s The Ark File;
    in Tim La Haye and John Morris’ The Ark on Ararat and
    Violet Cummings’ Has Anybody Really Seen Noah’s Ark? -
    what about all these?

    Painstaking research would eventually uncover the truth.
    And it wasn’t pretty. Supposed documented eyewitness
    accounts would evaporate.

    I learned that the Turkish government had meticulously
    observed the activities of all who had “looked for Noah’s
    Ark” over the past 50 years.

    It was required that Turkish guides accompany each
    expedition. These guides reported back to government
    officials, who kept files on the reports.

    Thus the claims of expedition members could be checked
    against the facts recorded.

    And can you wonder that the Turks were suspicious?
    Schliemann stole priceless treasures when he dug up Troy
    and others since had behaved similarly. So was it
    surprising that the Turks kept tabs on every Ararat
    expedition?

    NAVARRA PLANTS WOOD

    Information in the Turkish files showed that Navarra
    first took wood up Mount Ararat, and on the next visit in
    the company of witnesses “found” this wood “from the Ark”.

    MORE CLAIMS

    As for the 1916-17 Roskovitsky (Russian) discovery story,
    it was an embarrassing reality that the original tale had
    been a complete fabrication by one Benjamin Allen. Its
    purpose: to raise funds for the Sacred History Research
    expedition in the forties.

    Another report was given by Georgie Hagopian, who lived
    near Van about ninety miles from Ararat. Interviewed when
    he was an old man, he was “led” with questions.

    In truth, as a small child, he had been taken “up the
    mountain” (a mountain near Van, not Ararat) and while his
    uncle tended the flocks, he had sat Georgie on a big flat
    rock and said, “Here’s Noah’s Ark; you sit on it.”

    In imagination the child was sitting on the Ark. In the
    interview many years later, the fantasy was relived.

    THAT “ARK” MOVIE

    And about that movie screened in the seventies which
    showed the Ark in a valley on Mount Ararat?

    A gentleman named Elfred Lee PAINTED IN the boat-shape on
    to a photo of Ararat. That’s right.

    And what is more, a gentleman named Sallier, who prepared
    a picture for the film In Search of Noah’s Ark, took a
    tiny stone about an inch high, shaped it into a model of
    the Ark, and placed it against some soil in a little dry
    wash-out about a foot high, in Utah.

    The film commentary stated: “This is in a canyon on Mount
    Ararat.”

    They also placed it against some snow and photographed it
    close up in such a way you couldn’t tell how big it was.

    Talk about doing a snow job!

    One man had his picture taken while he stood in the
    so-called “canyon” with the mini “Ark” beside him.

    Some time later, Mr Lee told Mr Wyatt that “a Mr ....
    gave me $500 to paint it in.”

    “MT. ARARAT? NO WAY!”

    My friend Dr. M. Salih Bayraktutan, Turkish geologist,
    was reported in 1987 and 1988 as saying that “Mt. Big
    Ararat is volcanic and if the Ark landed there it would
    be under four to five thousand feet of lava.

    “Furthermore, the hydrodynamics of a cone shape volcanic
    mountain would push the Ark away from it. ”

    From pillow lava on Ararat (pillow lava forms under
    water), it is evident that Ararat was totally submerged
    during the Flood.

    Since the Flood waters did not reach 17,000 feet (Ararat’s
    present height), this mountain has been raised higher
    since the Flood.

    Such a volcanic upheaval would in all likelihood have
    destroyed the Ark, had it been there.

    MISTAKEN IDENTITY

    Almost any unusual feature of the mountain is likely to
    be associated with the Ark by observers from the air, the
    plain or the nearby hills.

    One series of climbs up the Ahora trail toward Kup Lake
    has revealed that what many thought may have been the Ark
    was simply a large rock spur.

    TO THE SOUTH OF MT. ARARAT

    Of course many of the reported sightings could have been
    of the other site twelve miles south of Mount Ararat.

    Others would have misinterpreted such sightings as having
    been made on Mt. Ararat.

    My earlier question now demanded an answer: “Didn’t the
    Bible say the Ark was on Ararat?”

    I leafed through to Genesis 8:4. There it was, now, as
    clear as distilled water: “And the ark rested... upon the
    mountains of Ararat.” Mountains, plural, indicating a
    range of mountains.

    And that was why I turned my attention to the Ararat
    mountains further south. The evidence at a site there –
    well, that is definitely worth writing home about!

    There’s definitely a boat there – 525 feet long (longer
    than a football field), which the identical length of the
    Ark as recorded in the book of Genesis, as well as the
    same average beam width.

    But that’s only the start of where things match up.

    THE FINAL VERDICT

    As for the latest Chinese claim, as you can see, we hear
    these reports from time to time. They always turn out to
    be something else.

    This latest team could have saved their breath if they
    had kept up with real discovery already made about 12
    miles to the south, and documented in detail by more than
    35 expeditions.

    The Turkish government has even turned it into an
    international historical park named "Noah's Ark
    Historical Park".

    HERE'S WHERE TO GET THE FACTS

    Honestly, I'd love to take you up there and let you see
    some of these amazing things for yourself. But that
    would cost you and me several thousand dollars each.
    And, with tension between the Turks and Kurds, the area
    is not always safe.

    But I guess the next best thing is to make this
    controversial report and 7 other FIREBALL reports
    available to you at as low a price as possible.

    Now, for the first time, you will discover the story
    behind the story. Certificates, private letters and
    heaps of new information… What do these reveal?

    International explorer, archaeologist and author
    Jonathan Gray has traveled the world to gather data on
    ancient mysteries. He has penetrated some largely
    unexplored areas, including parts of the Amazon
    headwaters. The author has also led expeditions to the
    bottom of the sea and to remote mountain and desert
    regions of the world. He lectures internationally.

    ======================================================
    ARCHAEOLOGY NEWSFLASH NO.700 CHINESE DISCOVERY REPORT I have been asked about a joint Turkish-Chinese expedition that claimed to have found Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat in Turkey. They took pictures of what they alleged were inside a structure that contained wooden beams carbon-dated to 4,800 years old. However, a member of the expedition, Dr Randall Price, reports: “I was the archaeologist with the Chinese expedition in the summer of 2008 and was given photos of what they now are reporting to be the inside of the Ark. “I and my partners invested $100,000 in this expedition, which they have retained, despite their promise and our requests to return it, since it was not used for the expedition. “The information given below is my opinion based on what I have seen and heard (from others who claim to have been eyewitnesses or know the exact details). “To make a long story short: this is all reported to be a fake. The photos were reputed to have been taken off site near the Black Sea, but the film footage the Chinese now have was shot on location on Mt. Ararat. “In the late summer of 2008 ten Kurdish workers hired by Parasut, the guide used by the Chinese, are said to have planted large wood beams taken from an old structure in the Black Sea area (where the photos were originally taken) at the Mt. Ararat site. “In the winter of 2008 a Chinese climber taken by Parasut’s men to the site saw the wood, but couldn’t get inside because of the severe weather conditions. “During the summer of 2009 more wood was planted inside a cave at the site. “The Chinese team went in the late summer of 2009 (I was there at the time and knew about the hoax) and was shown the cave with the wood and made their film. “As I said, I have the photos of the inside of the s o- called Ark (that show cobwebs in the corners of rafters – something just not possible in these conditions) and our Kurdish partner in Dogubabyazit (the village at the foot of Mt. Ararat) has all of the facts about the location, the men who planted the wood, and even the truck that transported it.” In short, Randall was duped. THE JAMMAL MT ARARAT HOAX This is certainly not the first time phony claims have been floated. Among the best-known scams is one from 1993, when California actor George Jammal deliberately duped CBS Television and the filmmakers of "The Incredible Discovery of Noah's Ark" into believing he saw and touched the vessel on Mount Ararat. Jammal made the hoax as blatant as possible, making up persons with names such as “the Armenian friend, Mr. Allis Buls Hitian” or “my dear Polish companion Vladimir Sobitchsky”, and cooking a piece of pine in sauce to present it as “a piece of the Ark”. And yet his story was presented as the real thing and shown as the key testimony in the video; after some time, humiliating its makers, Jammal publicly revealed the details of his hoax. In our popular book “The Ark Conspiracy” are related other false reports. NAVARRA’S WOOD “DISCOVERY” For example, a Frenchman, Ferdinand Navarra, climbed Ararat three times in the 1950s. After his first expedition, he claimed to have seen an unusual dark patch within the ice, which was a ship’s hull. The discovery was at approximately 14,000 feet altitude. During a third climb, on July 6, 1955, Navarra “discovered” hand-hewn timber on the slope. LACK OF EVIDENCE From numerous claimed sightings of the Ark during the 20th century, the belief grew that the Ark lay partly hidden by ice on a large ledge 13,000 to 15,000 feet up on Mount Ararat. The public was fascinated. And I was “hooked” on the gigantic Mount Ararat as being the site. In my scientific research I had investigated hundreds of archaeological reports and was well aware of the difference between anecdote and evidence. One thing had been bothering me. For more than seventy years, so many expeditions had failed to produce any hard evidence. Great stories were told, which captivated the listener; but of all the rumoured sightings, none had ever been authenticated. Photographs reportedly taken had either been lost or considered inconclusive. Then my attention was drawn to the site twelve miles south of Mount Ararat proper - the site to which American archaeologist Ron Wyatt kept returning. Ron supplied a stunning piece of information - the “anchor stones”. That got me started - reluctantly. I was keen on the Mount Ararat site, to the rumours of a ship high up in a canyon half buried in ice. I didn’t want to believe that THIS thing covered in mud on a plateau to the south was the Ark. I went out with a whole brief case full of objections to shoot down Wyatt’s claim. “WHAT ABOUT ALL THOSE ARARAT SIGHTINGS?” I kept asking. What about the reports in Rene Noorbergen’s The Ark File; in Tim La Haye and John Morris’ The Ark on Ararat and Violet Cummings’ Has Anybody Really Seen Noah’s Ark? - what about all these? Painstaking research would eventually uncover the truth. And it wasn’t pretty. Supposed documented eyewitness accounts would evaporate. I learned that the Turkish government had meticulously observed the activities of all who had “looked for Noah’s Ark” over the past 50 years. It was required that Turkish guides accompany each expedition. These guides reported back to government officials, who kept files on the reports. Thus the claims of expedition members could be checked against the facts recorded. And can you wonder that the Turks were suspicious? Schliemann stole priceless treasures when he dug up Troy and others since had behaved similarly. So was it surprising that the Turks kept tabs on every Ararat expedition? NAVARRA PLANTS WOOD Information in the Turkish files showed that Navarra first took wood up Mount Ararat, and on the next visit in the company of witnesses “found” this wood “from the Ark”. MORE CLAIMS As for the 1916-17 Roskovitsky (Russian) discovery story, it was an embarrassing reality that the original tale had been a complete fabrication by one Benjamin Allen. Its purpose: to raise funds for the Sacred History Research expedition in the forties. Another report was given by Georgie Hagopian, who lived near Van about ninety miles from Ararat. Interviewed when he was an old man, he was “led” with questions. In truth, as a small child, he had been taken “up the mountain” (a mountain near Van, not Ararat) and while his uncle tended the flocks, he had sat Georgie on a big flat rock and said, “Here’s Noah’s Ark; you sit on it.” In imagination the child was sitting on the Ark. In the interview many years later, the fantasy was relived. THAT “ARK” MOVIE And about that movie screened in the seventies which showed the Ark in a valley on Mount Ararat? A gentleman named Elfred Lee PAINTED IN the boat-shape on to a photo of Ararat. That’s right. And what is more, a gentleman named Sallier, who prepared a picture for the film In Search of Noah’s Ark, took a tiny stone about an inch high, shaped it into a model of the Ark, and placed it against some soil in a little dry wash-out about a foot high, in Utah. The film commentary stated: “This is in a canyon on Mount Ararat.” They also placed it against some snow and photographed it close up in such a way you couldn’t tell how big it was. Talk about doing a snow job! One man had his picture taken while he stood in the so-called “canyon” with the mini “Ark” beside him. Some time later, Mr Lee told Mr Wyatt that “a Mr .... gave me $500 to paint it in.” “MT. ARARAT? NO WAY!” My friend Dr. M. Salih Bayraktutan, Turkish geologist, was reported in 1987 and 1988 as saying that “Mt. Big Ararat is volcanic and if the Ark landed there it would be under four to five thousand feet of lava. “Furthermore, the hydrodynamics of a cone shape volcanic mountain would push the Ark away from it. ” From pillow lava on Ararat (pillow lava forms under water), it is evident that Ararat was totally submerged during the Flood. Since the Flood waters did not reach 17,000 feet (Ararat’s present height), this mountain has been raised higher since the Flood. Such a volcanic upheaval would in all likelihood have destroyed the Ark, had it been there. MISTAKEN IDENTITY Almost any unusual feature of the mountain is likely to be associated with the Ark by observers from the air, the plain or the nearby hills. One series of climbs up the Ahora trail toward Kup Lake has revealed that what many thought may have been the Ark was simply a large rock spur. TO THE SOUTH OF MT. ARARAT Of course many of the reported sightings could have been of the other site twelve miles south of Mount Ararat. Others would have misinterpreted such sightings as having been made on Mt. Ararat. My earlier question now demanded an answer: “Didn’t the Bible say the Ark was on Ararat?” I leafed through to Genesis 8:4. There it was, now, as clear as distilled water: “And the ark rested... upon the mountains of Ararat.” Mountains, plural, indicating a range of mountains. And that was why I turned my attention to the Ararat mountains further south. The evidence at a site there – well, that is definitely worth writing home about! There’s definitely a boat there – 525 feet long (longer than a football field), which the identical length of the Ark as recorded in the book of Genesis, as well as the same average beam width. But that’s only the start of where things match up. THE FINAL VERDICT As for the latest Chinese claim, as you can see, we hear these reports from time to time. They always turn out to be something else. This latest team could have saved their breath if they had kept up with real discovery already made about 12 miles to the south, and documented in detail by more than 35 expeditions. The Turkish government has even turned it into an international historical park named "Noah's Ark Historical Park". HERE'S WHERE TO GET THE FACTS Honestly, I'd love to take you up there and let you see some of these amazing things for yourself. But that would cost you and me several thousand dollars each. And, with tension between the Turks and Kurds, the area is not always safe. But I guess the next best thing is to make this controversial report and 7 other FIREBALL reports available to you at as low a price as possible. Now, for the first time, you will discover the story behind the story. Certificates, private letters and heaps of new information… What do these reveal?

    I invite you to come with me, now, on an adventure
    you’ll never forget. What awaits you is an amazing journey
    as you come face to face with a weird world of seemingly
    endless questions…

    TANTALISING QUESTIONS

    You may have heard about those mysterious caves in the
    Grand Canyon. First discovered in the 1800s, they contained
    Egyptian-style artefacts.

    Others have been exploring since. Robert Morgan has emailed
    me concerning his visits.

    "In the past 20 years," he says, "I have spent much time in the
    caves in the Grand Canyon. One in particular, you need scuba
    gear to make it through the first cavern filled body of water.

    "This cavern is about a block long, and opens up into a very
    large room which then branches off into several corridors.
    Many petroglyphs await the explorer. It definitely appears to be
    of the Egyptian period.

    "There are many man made closed off corridors. What is behind
    them? Our next trip to the Grand Canyon may reveal much about
    the closed off corridors. If I make
    it back, maybe I can enlighten you on what we found. The
    exploring within the caves, is NOT FOR THE TIMID!"

    There are many scary places on earth - unexplored, or partly
    explored. And many long-lost secrets are re-surfacing.

    In my book Dead Men’s Secrets is this statement: “A mechanical
    effect of stunning beauty may soon be discovered in the
    Lin-t-’ung district of China.

    “In 100 B.C. the Chinese chronicler Suma Chien described
    unbelievable treasures constructed within the tomb of the first
    emperor, Chi’n Shi Huang Ti. Constellations, regions of the earth
    and contemporary buildings were all reproduced.

    "All the rivers of the country, the Yellow River and the Yangtze,
    were reproduced in quicksilver and made to flow into a miniature
    ocean through some mechanical means."

    “The archaeologists who finally penetrate this tomb had better
    take care; the ancient chronicler warned that weaponry was set
    up "so that any robber breaking in would be killed."

    Now comes this news report:

    MAY BE TOO DEADLY TO EXPLORE

    After discovering a secret palace hidden in China's first emperor
    massive burial complex, Chinese technicians are nervous.

    Not because Qin Shi Huang's tomb is the most important archaeological
    discovery since Tutankhamun, but because they believe his burial
    place is full of deadly traps that will kill any trespassers. Not
    to talk about deadly quantities of mercury.

    The secret courtyard-style palace tomb is a mind-numbing discovery.

    Situated in the heart of the Emperor's 22-square-mile (56-square-
    kilometer) mortuary compound guarded by more than 6,000 (and
    counting) full-size statues of warriors, musicians and acrobats,
    the buried palace is 2,263 by 820 feet (690 by 250 meters).

    It includes 18 courtyard houses overlooked by one main building,
    where the emperor is supposed to be. The palace—which has already
    been partially mapped in 3D using volumetric scanners—occupied a
    space of 6,003,490 cubic feet (170,000 cubic meters). That's one
    fourth the size of the Forbidden City in
    Beijing—for just one tomb.

    Experts believe that the 249-foot-high (76-meter) structure
    covered with soil and kept dry thanks to a complex draining system,
    hides the body of the emperor and his courtiers.

    Nobody knows what's the state of their bodies, but one of the l
    eading archaeologists believes that they are most likely destroyed
    by now.What probably are intact are the countless treasures that—
    according to the ancient scrolls that describe the emperor's long
    lost burial site—fill the interior of the tomb.

    And perhaps the deadly traps guarding them too.

    DEADLY TRAPS?

    The archaeologists working at the excavation said that "it's like
    having a present all wrapped at home, knowing that inside is what
    you always wanted, and not being able to open it."

    But, at the same time, nobody wants to be the first to get inside
    because of the mausoleum's dangerous traps—they're detailed in the
    same texts that recount its abundant riches.

    Even if the old Chinese texts are correct, they might not still
    work after two thousand years. Perhaps the mechanisms are so rusty
    that the bolts won't fire. Maybe the wood and the cords used the in
    the traps have long since been
    destroyed by bacteria.

    Chinese historian Guo Zhikun argues the contrary. He is one of the
    main experts on Qinshihuang's burial site, and says that it's very
    possible that the traps are still active. He claims that the use
    of chrome in the figures may indicate that the traps received a
    similar protective treatment.

    He is sure that "the artisans who built the traps installed
    crossbows that will fire if any thief tries to get inside."

    Even if the traps don't work, there is still the matter of the
    high, deadly concentration of mercury inside the tomb. On-site
    measurements indicate dangerous levels, which may come from another
    feature described in the scrolls: Imperial engineers created large
    rivers of quicksilver inside the tomb. So much that the level of
    mercury inside could be deadly for any unprotected adventurers.

    The Chinese government hasn't decided what to do with the hidden
    complex yet. The authorities will wait for some time because they
    believe that, with the current technology, you can't get inside
    the tomb without destroying some of its contents. – Jesus Diaz,
    in Spanish newspaper El Pai

    How long will all these things be kept secret? Not much
    longer... because here it comes...


    HERE... AT LONG LAST!

    Too much for an email. But Dead Men's Secrets?" is finally
    updated, so you can know. Yes, heaps of brand new facts, and
    color pictures as well, all in this one mighty e-book, "DEAD
    MEN'S SECRETS UPDATE".


    DEAD MEN'S SECRETS UPDATE

    And what's in it? Here's just a sample for you to chew over...

    EGYPT

    * Did you hear about the construction workers in Alexandria
    who broke into a burial vault, which contained bones of people
    twice our height?

    * That an ancient bullet hole has been found in the skull of an
    Egyptian mummy?

    * Did you know that the earliest pyramids were not tombs?

    * Are you aware of the surprising secrets down in Egypt’s
    underground Labyrinth?

    * Ever-burning lamps: An Egyptian papyrus describes the
    experience of ancient explorers who gained entry to under-
    ground chambers: "We came to a chamber. When we entered,
    it became automatically illuminated by light from a tube being
    the height of one man's hand. And as we came closer it shone
    brighter."

    INDIA

    * Radioactivity in an ancient nuclear-bombed city in Rajasthan
    is reportedly still so intense that the area is highly dangerous.
    What kind of radioactivity is this?

    CHINA

    Did you know that
    * A Chinese fleet was incinerated at sea, then washed high up
    onto cliff tops?

    * In China, a royal neck ornament created a force field that no
    metallic object could penetrate. This force field was about a 12 ft.
    circle around the person, protecting him from any metallic weapon
    aimed at him.

    * Have you heard about the dangerous mechanical devices in an
    ancient Chinese tomb? After discovering a secret palace hidden
    in China's first emperor massive burial complex, Chinese technic-
    ians are nervous. Not because Qin Shi Huang's tomb is the most
    important archaeological discovery since Tutankhamun, but because
    they believe his burial place is full of deadly traps that will kill
    anytrespassers. Not to mention deadly quantities of mercury.

    THE AMERICAS

    * Who caused the ancient nuclear destruction in North America?

    * Did you know that North America was surveyed, mapped and
    carefully described about 2000 BC?

    * And Marco Polo, merchant traveller of Venice, Italy, visited not
    only China, but came all the way from Europe to Alaska in the
    13th century?

    * When an ancient underground complex was unearthed in
    Southern California, containing artefacts of aluminium and plastic,
    and pictures of flying craft, advanced surgery, and men walking
    with dinosaurs... Why did two U.S. Army officers, a major and a
    captain arrive with 8 army troops and seize the land? Why was
    the property gutted within days and filled with fresh soil? Why did
    someone break into the archaeology office overnight and steal all
    the pictures and artefacts they had collected. And when the property
    owner challenged the army officers about what they were doing. Why
    did the major look at him and say, "It would be a shame to have to
    kill you right here and now"?

    * Did you hear about the more recent adventurers who have explored
    the Grand Canyon caves that conceal ancient Egyptian remains?

    * Did you know that ancient tunnel systems are still used today by
    certain Mayans who can ‘pop up’ many miles from their home locations
    at a lot of places in Central America, and visit with friends and
    family members without being detected by Government forces out to
    kill or capture them?

    * What happened to all the Inca gold that the Spanish invaders
    missed?

    * See amazing terraces "impossibly" inlaid into vertical slopes
    perched 3,000 feet over the canyon - too steep to be accessible, let
    alone hurl up those monstrous stones, or even for the workmen
    to hang on while they fitted them up there!

    building blocks ever discovered?

    * Have you heard about the ancient "circuit board" mirror found
    in a mine thousands of feet deep - which, when you keep touching it,
    shows page after page of a story (now translated), and shows photo-
    graphs - 15 pictures of what appears to be the same family?

    * Crimea - Mt Ai-Petri: Why is a mooring ring for tying up sea-going
    vessels fixed into rock near a mountain top?

    * Were you aware that a "natural" Bosnian hill may contain a massive
    pyramid?

    * And get this! Roman emperor Nero's "revolving banquet room" has
    been found?

    MIDDLE EAST

    * Still hidden in a cave is a copper scroll which describes a hidden

    still in a remarkable state of preservation, that no modern tourists
    have ever seen.

    The samemusical scales were used by the Greeks and the Indians of
    western North America. Even today, among the western Canadian Indians
    of British Columbia there are songs that use a Greek scale like the
    one on the piano’s white keys going down from the note e.

    ARCHAEOLOGY NEWSFLASH 687 In my book Dead Men’s Secrets is this statement: “A mechanical effect of stunning beauty may soon be discovered in the Lin-t-’ung district of China. “In 100 B.C. the Chinese chronicler Suma Chien described unbelievable treasures constructed within the tomb of the first emperor, Chi’n Shi Huang Ti. Constellations, regions of the earth and contemporary buildings were all reproduced. "All the rivers of the country, the Yellow River and the Yangtze, were reproduced in quicksilver and made to flow into a miniature ocean through some mechanical means." “The archaeologists who finally penetrate this tomb had better take care; the ancient chronicler warned that weaponry was set up "so that any robber breaking in would be killed." Now comes this news report: MAY BE TOO DEADLY TO EXPLORE After discovering a secret palace hidden in China's first emperor massive burial complex, Chinese technicians are nervous.

Situated in the heart of the Emperor's 22-square-mile (56-square- kilometer) mortuary compound guarded by more than 6,000 (and counting) full-size statues of warriors, musicians and acrobats, the buried palace is 2,263 by 820 feet (690 by 250 meters). It includes 18 courtyard houses overlooked by one main building, where the emperor is supposed to be. The palace—which has already been partially mapped in 3D using volumetric scanners—occupied a space of 6,003,490 cubic feet (170,000 cubic meters).
