Could Theoretical White Hole Actually Exist?
Everyone knows about black holes, but could its opposite actually exist? Some scientists think so.
Sea of Molten Carbon Hiding Under Western U.S.
Geologists at the University of London's Department of Earth Sciences are reporting the discovery of a sea of molten carbon-based minerals underneath the western United States. The sea of carbon stretches across 695,000 square miles and lies some 217 miles below the surface of the Earth.
Siberia's 'Doorway to the Underworld' Uncovering 200,000-Year-Old Forests
It's no secret that Siberia's permafrost has been on thin ice lately. Conditions are varying so much that huge holes are appearing out of nowhere, and, in some places, tundra is quite literally bubbling underneath people's feet.
Humans to be Frozen for Space Travel
By lowering the average body temperature (37 degrees celsius) to around 32 degrees celsius, the heart rate and blood pressure are also lowered, inducing a state of sleep. Medical professionals already use the tactic to treat sufferers of cardiac arrest and heart failure so that they have more time to asses the damage.
Humans Taught to Echolocate Like Dolphins
Scientists have successfully taught a small group of blind and sighted people how to navigate their surroundings using echolocation--the sonar-based language of dolphins and bats. Using sound created by tongue clicks, the group learned how to detect the size of virtual rooms with surprising accuracy--something that researchers had not expected in people who were born with sight.
Skull Similarities Suggest Multiple Migrations into South America
The flow of early humans into South America, the last continent to be populated by modern humans, is a subject of intense debate, with some studies supporting one migration from Asia and others suggesting up to four separate waves. South Americans' crania, or skulls, are highly diverse, but it is unclear whether the differences indicate multiple migrations or local diversification processes.
Unexplained Nuclear Activity Detected in the Arctic Thawing permafrost in Greenland is beginning to reveal, a top-secret World War Two-era U.S. military base rumored to house a clandestine operation to lob nukes at the USSR through underground tunnels. True story.
Desert People Evolve to Drink Water Poisoned with Deadly Arsenic For settlers in the Quebrada Camarones region of Chile's Atacama desert some 7000 years ago, water posed more than a bit of a problem. They were living in the world's driest non-polar desert, and several of their most readily available water sources, such as rivers and wells, had high levels of arsenic.
NASA Photos May Reveal Giant Hole at South Pole of Ceres
The photographs of Ceres' north and south poles were taken from August 17 to October 23, 2015, from its current orbit 1,470 km (915 miles) above the surface. Those of the north pole clearly show craters (Jarovit, Ghanan and Asari), mountains (Ysolo Mons) and other prominent features. Those of the south pole show a large pitch black area.
2.5-Mile-Long Object Moving Under Pacific Ocean? A massive circular structure has been spotted slowly crawling across the Pacific sea floor 3000 feet below the surface. The circular object which appears to have left a 41 mile track in its wake as it trundled across the floor of the North Pacific off the Californian coast.
Moon Probably Older Than We Thought
A new analysis of zircon fragments trapped in rock samples retrieved by the Apollo 14 astronauts shows that the moon is 4.51 billion years old, meaning it formed within 60 million years of the birth of the solar system.
New Internet Video Shows Russia's Tesla Tower
A drone video shows the current state of Russia's mysterious 'Tesla Tower', the so-called Marx Generator inspired by the Wardenclyffe Tower designed and built in New York by Nikola Tesla.
WHAT DOES WATER REMEMBER?
Could Orthodox Science Be All Wet About Homeopathy & 'Structured' Water? BY JEANE MANNING
What if the element that keeps us alive could also perform wonders that few of its protectors know about? What if water is sensitive to everything it touches, and stores inside itself a record of the substances encountered on its journey? more...
ANCIENT MYSTERIES THE CONSTELLATION LEO & THE GREAT SPHINX A New Book by Robert Schoch and Robert Bauval Explores the Great Monument's Disputed Origins BY ROBERT BAUVAL
It has long been believed (and still is!) by Egyptologists that the ancient Egyptians did not know the zodiac and that it--the so-called Greco-Babylonian zodiac--was brought into Egypt sometime in the third or fourth century BCE, probably by the Greeks. This may indeed be so for the Babylonian zodiac, but it does not necessarily follow that the ancient Egyptians did not have a zodiac of their own or did not identify certain constellations along the zodiacal belt that were important to them. more...
NINE UNKNOWN MEN The Story of the Mysterious Brotherhood of Asoka the Great BY DAVID H. CHILDRESS Pataliputra was a city in ancient India, originally built by Magadha ruler Ajatashatru in 490 BCE as a small fort near the Ganges river. The city reached the pinnacle of prosperity when it became the capital of the great Mauryan emperors, Chandragupta Maurya and Asoka the Great. more...
THE OTHER SIDE
THE MYSTERIOUS GIFTS OF THE SAINTS When the Case for the Miraculous Cannot Be Honestly Dismissed
BY STEVEN SORA
Holy men and women of the Christian Churches often surprise their faithful long after death. Their bodies may remain incorrupt, their bones can produce liquids like oils, or solids like powders, and their blood can turn from liquid to solid almost on cue. more...
CONSCIOUSNESS DANCE OF THE SHAMAN Is There Evidence for the Reality of the Spirit?
BY ROBERT M. SCHOCH, Ph.D. As many readers who are familiar with my work surely realize, in many ways I straddle a couple of different communities--indeed, different worlds. I am a trained and "card-carrying" academic. I earned a Ph.D. in geology and geophysics at Yale University and I am currently a full-time tenured faculty member at Boston University. Yet I take a deep and serious interest in various topics that the majority of my fellow academics find, to put it mildly, loathsome. I have challenged mainstream status quo dogma and studied topics that, I have been advised, are best left unexplored if I want to have a successful university career.. more...

KING TUT'S TOMB SET FOR HI-TECH RADAR SEARCH In the first half of 2016 we reported several times on new research in King Tut's tomb, in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, that suggested a previously undiscovered chamber might exist there. Subsequent preliminary studies proved inconclusive, but the investigation has not ended. In February, the Egyptian Department of Antiquities announced that the scientific search for a lost secret chamber will resume in ernest later in 2017. more...

MAGNETIC EARTH: A CAUSE OR AN EFFECT? Most of us have been taught that where there is smoke there is fire. One might also say, if there is a magnetic field, there must be a magnet. That is how most theories about the nature of Earth's core originated, but are they true? more...
TUNGUSKA'S MYSTERY REVISITED In June of 1908 something blew up over Tunguska in Siberia. Since 2012 many have believed that the mysterious event--one of the largest explosions in history--was caused by a meteor. The evidence, they say, is an enormous and unidentified object, shown on bathymetric surveys, buried deep beneath Lake Cheko. A new analysis by Russian scientists though, says not so fast.
NEW 'CHIMERA' EXPERIMENTS CAUSE ALARM Among serious proponents for the existence of Atlantis, are many who also suspect that the forgotten ancient civilization fell because of great evils that flourished there. One of the worst, it is said, was an advanced and unscrupulous science of genetic engineering which produced many monstrosities. Ancient mythological creatures like centaurs, satyrs, chimeras, maybe even the Great Sphinx of Egypt, are, it is believed, but subconscious reconstructions of the horrors of an otherwise mercifully forgotten time. more...

MORE EMBARRASSMENT FOR ORTHODOX ARCHAEOLOGY Not many years ago, the suggestion that humans could have lived in North America over 13,000 years ago, would have been dismissed as the raving of the uneducated. Now newly reconsidered evidence, found over 40 years ago, is proving the human presence here at least 24,000 years ago. Part of a growing flood tide of such evidence, the discovery eviscerates the conventional wisdom of a generation. more...
AMAZON GEOGLYPHS SHOW SIGNS OF LOST HIGH CIVILIZATION For years conventional wisdom regarding the Amazonian rain forests, has held that before the arrival of the Europeans, they were pristine ecosystems that had never experienced the destructive forces of civilization. Never mind the claims of explorers like Percy Fawcett that, where today there is only jungle, there had once been cities. There simply wasn't enough arable farmland, it was argued, to support anything other than a primitive subsistence culture. Such pronouncements, however, are now contradicted by new discoveries--chief among them: immense carefully constructed geometrical earthworks (over 450 found so far, of mostly large circles and squares). more...
THE AUSTRALIAN AMERICANS Is the Standard Out-of-Africa Narrative About to Change?

ANCIENT ETs VS. DARWIN
Are Ancient Alien Theorists, Really Creationists?
BY RITA LOUISE. Ph.D.
Who are we? How did we come to be upon the earth? It was once accepted as fact in the Western world that we came into being through a series of creative acts that took place over the course of just six days. In this particular narrative God placed the sun, moon, and stars in the sky and created the plants and animals; and then, on the sixth day, formed the first man and woman and placed them in a divine garden to live.

THE IMMORTAL LAWS OF MUSIC
Are Our Preferences Due to Nature or Nurture?
BY MARTIN RUGGLES
According to a new study, the music of Mozart and Strauss can lower blood lipid concentrations and the heart rate. A 2016 paper on the effect of different musical genres on the cardiovascular system, published in "Deutsches Ärzteblatt International", showed that Mozart and Strauss music amazingly lowered blood pressure and heart rate, whereas there was no discernible effect for the songs of the pop band ABBA used as the control group. more...
LOST CITY OF THE ARCTIC
Advanced Ancient Civilization in the Middle of Nowhere
BY FRANK JOSEPH
There is no more desolate nor inhabitable location on our planet that found above the Arctic Circle. Ferocious temperatures lashed by blasting windstorms make it a most difficult area for life to get a foothold. This ultimately remote and forbidden polar region would be the last place anyone would expect to discover evidence for an ancient civilization. Yet, the distinguished Natural History magazine reported, "We have now found an Arctic metropolis many times larger than anything previously thought possible in this part of the world and inhabited by people whose material culture differed markedly from that of the Eskimos, as we know them." more...
THE HELIX OF THE AGES
Understanding the Cycles of Time
BY WILLIAM B. STOECKER
The ancient Hindu sacred texts maintain that time for human cultures is divided up into discrete ages, or "Yugas." The Satya Yuga was a time of peace and plenty; people were long-lived giants, morally upright, who had no need to toil away on farms or in mines. Morally, economically, and health-wise they degenerated a bit in the following Treta Yuga, and declined even more in the Duapara Yuga. Most Hindu scholars believe that we are now in the terrible Kali Yuga (named after the seemingly demonic Hindu goddess) a time of moral decline, poor health, pollution, and poverty. more...
