Does a Seventeenth-Century Coin Depict a UFO?
An ancient jeton, a coin-like object used for counting, shows an unusual circular entity that looks remarkably like a flying saucer. Some have even argued that the image represents the Biblical Ezekiel's wheel, which they claim is the Bible's own tale of a UFO encounter.

Many Icelanders Believe in 'Hidden People'
A myth from Iceland's folk traditions has persisted, and has led to the suspicion that the wee folk may still be out there among the rocks. That belief has led to road and housing plans being altered to avoid sites associated with them.


Is the Moon About to Be Hit by an Asteroid?
A huge asteroid with a highly unpredictable orbit that has more chance of hitting the Moon than Earth when it passes in October, has been closely monitored since its discovery in 2015.

Half of Western European Men Descended from One Bronze Age 'King'
The lineage, according to a new study, comes from a 'king' who sired a dynasty of elite nobles which spread throughout Europe.

Giant Stone Sphere Discovered in Europe
The enigmatic sphere resembles mysterious stone spheres found in Costa Rica, which, researchers believe, were carved thousands of years ago by civilized people. The new find is seen as evidence of a lost European civilization.

Leonardo da Vinci Paintings Analyzed for DNA
The mystery of where Leonardo da Vinci is buried could be laid to rest after scientists, enabled by new technology, complete a painstaking search for his DNA. They believe that Leonardo may have left traces of his DNA in paintings, notebooks and drawings, and are planning to study his works for fingerprints, flakes of skin and even hair.

Mysterious Cloud over Mars Linked to Massive Solar Outburst
Back in March 2012, a mysterious cloud plume, 155 miles above the Martian surface, was spotted by amateur astronomers. The clouds were far too high up for normal formations. Now, scientists are suggesting the event, which has been debated ever since its discovery, was actually caused by the Sun.

One-and-a-half Years to Mars? Russia Could Do It in One-and-a-half Months
The head of the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom, Sergey Kirienko, wants to use nuclear energy to power spaceships...

Science Team in Antarctica Reaches a Subglacial Lake
Investigators have been able to bore down into Lake Whillans, a body of water in the west of Antarctica, and buried half a mile under the ice. According to the BBC, this 'lake' is more like a dense system of delta-like streams.

The Dwarf Planet Ceres May Have a Huge Ocean that Could Support Life
Scientists have detected ice on the planet's surface, which could mean Ceres is hiding an ocean below its frozen crust. Where there's water, there might be life.
 

Lakes Discovered Beneath Greenland Ice Sheet
A new study has produced evidence of two lakes 800 meters below the Greenland Ice Sheet. The two lakes are each roughly five-miles square, and, at one point, may have been up to three times larger than their current size.

WHY IS THE MARTIAN SKY BLUE?
And other Unanswered Questions about Life on the Red Planet


By WILLIAM B. STOECKER
In a sense, there are really three planets we call Mars. There is the Mars of fiction, of dreams, of imagining. There is Mars as depicted by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) based on their own interpretation of the data from their various orbiters and landers. Then there is the 'real' Mars--now only dimly perceptible--which appears to lie somewhere between the Mars of fiction and the official version offered by NASA and its allies.    more...

Ancient War Fires

Could Forts of Melted Stone Hold Lost Secrets of Ancient Nuclear Technology?
BY NICK REDFERN
The Cold War is long gone, as is the Soviet Union. But, as numerous, post-9/11 events have demonstrated, the world is still a dangerous place. In fact, it's very dangerous. And it's getting even more and more dangerous by the day...Is it possible that our civilization is, in reality, just the latest in a long line, one of many?    more...

SHAKEN PLANET

Putting Ear to the Ground & Eyes on the Skies, to Explain Earthquakes
BY SUSAN B. MARTINEZ, Ph.D.

Despite differences of opinion on this earthshaking issue, global data does suggest "the occurrence of earthquakes to be more during the night than during the day. … Counts go down in the afternoon." Though seismologists hesitate to acknowledge this potentially controversial pattern, it won't go away.    more...

BIGFOOT--A Neanderthal Connection?

Human DNA and the Hunt for an Ape-Man
BY BRYAN SYKES, Ph.D., D.Sc.

The two most promising candidates as the source of our anomalous primate, be it 'yeti' or 'Bigfoot', are the giant ape Gigantopithecus and other human species, like Neanderthals, favored by Belgian biologist Bernard Heuvelmans and Russian hominologist, Boris Porchnev.    more...

Remembering Edgar Mitchell

Explorer of Outer and Inner Space
BY ROBERT M. SCHOCH, Ph.D.
Dr. Edgar D. Mitchell passed away on February 4, 2016 in West Palm Beach, Florida, at the age of 85 (he was born on September 17, 1930 in Hereford, Texas). This article is not meant to be an obituary or a systematic summary of his life but, rather, some personal reflections on a man who was not afraid to push the boundaries of scientific orthodoxy, particularly in the realm of psychic research and consciousness studies.    more...

ALTERNATIVE NEWS

STELLAR TRAVEL on the CHEAP?

As any Star Trek fan knows, the interstellar spaceships of the future, navigating swiftly from galaxy to galaxy, will travel at warp speed (faster than the speed of light); but such things, we are told, are reserved for science fiction. Nothing like that is achievable in this 3D realm of Newtonian physics. But, then again, we now hear that warp speed, or something very much like it, may be possible after all…    more...



ALTERNATIVE SCIENCE

Planet X as a major factor in the history of Earth is a popular notion in some quarters, like, say, the Zecharia Sitchin fan club, but the idea has always drawn sneers from establishment science. Recent research could be changing that, though…  more...


CAVE ART–10,000 YEARS OLDER THAN WE THOUGHT
The phrase: "it's much older than anyone thought possible," is used so often in archaeology news, that it seems like all modern timelines for human history on Earth should be thrown out, and we should just start over with a new set of assumptions.    more...

Another "Missing Link" Shows Up
Ever since Charles Darwin, his disciples have combed the fossil record for 'missing links' in the chain of evolution--especially in the case of humans. There have been many candidates for the part, and a few--like the so-called Piltdown man-outright frauds, but so far none has proved worthy of the role. The latest case to make Darwinian hearts throb comes from South Africa.    more...

COULD BIBLE STORIES BE HISTORICALLY RELIABLE?
The writers of the Hebrew Bible were more literate, and were so sooner, than archaeologists have previously believed. That is the conclusion drawn from handwriting found on seventh century BC pottery shards recovered from Arad, a remote garrison, far away from Jerusalem.    more...



ISAAC NEWTON'S RECIPE FOR THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE FOUND
Einstein was not right about everything. He certainly doubted the validity of quantum physics, declaring its observed "action at a distance," to be "spooky," and adding that "God does not play dice with the universe." Unlike his contemporaries, Niels Bohr, Wolfgang Pauli, and many of the virtual mystics of physics, Einstein has become something of a hero to the more materialistic, and less 'spooky', breed of physicist. For these, the opportunity to prove him right about anything is a very big deal, even if the idea has been around for a long time and is doubted by no one.    more...

ADVANCED ANCIENT WATER TECHNOLOGY IN NAZCA, PERU
The amazingly advanced technology of ancient Peru is on display again. Despite living in one of the driest regions on Earth, Peruvians were once able to find enough water to support their agricultural needs and much more. While ancient canals are clearly visible and continue in use today, another widespread feature of the system: puquios--large spiraling holes with carefully constructed rock walls--has remained a mystery.    more...

Do We All Live in a Computer Simulation?

In the blockbuster Matrix films, the idea is put forward that our entire world could be nothing more than a massive computer simulation. Certainly much of the movie's popularity was based on the widely shared intuition that such a thing might be true. The idea has not gone away. In fact, the Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City in April focused on the possibility. Hayden Planetarium director, Neil deGrasse Tyson, went so far as to say he considered the odds of such a thing to be 50-50.    more...

THE FATHER CRESPI PLOT CONTINUES TO THICKEN
The mysteries surrounding Ecuador's late Father Carlos Crespi still intrigue many. The alleged collector of thousands of unexplained artifacts found in South American jungles, Crespi has become a near mythical figure. Some, like U.S. Army Colonel Wendall Stephens, have even argued that Crespi was Adolf Hitler.    more...

Strange Roswell 'Swastika' Raising Internet Eyebrows
A desert site near Roswell, New Mexico, and visible on GoogleEarth, has been causing quite a stir lately on the Internet and in a viral YouTube video. What appears, at first glance, to be an old bomber practice target range also seems to include a swastika, and some are saying that this suggests a connection with Nazis and a possible occult conspiracy related to secret warfare and UFOs.    more...

ANCIENT MYSTERIES

Thunderbolts from the Gods
BY RITA LOUISE, Ph.D.
The vajra is the most important ritual implement of Vajrayana Buddhism. In Sanskrit, the word 'vajra' is defined as something hard or mighty, as in a diamond. It symbolizes an impenetrable, immovable, and indestructible state of knowledge and enlightenment.    more...


America's Ancient Egyptian Link?

The Amazing Facts Surrounding Monks Mound
BY FRANK JOSEPH
Most Americans are unaware that a prehistoric building comparable to the Great Pyramid of Ancient Egypt sits just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, Missouri. They would be no less surprised to learn how both structures--although separated by two continents and an ocean--were erected at the same time.    more...

LOST HISTORY

Snow White QUEEN OF STARS
The Secrets of This Ancient Story Are Written in the Sky
BY RALPH ELLIS
IThe fairytale of Snow White was written by the Brothers Grimm during the mid-nineteenth century, and like all of their fables, it was written as a parable and therefore infused with layers of hidden meaning…    more...

Guinevere Unveiled
How True Is the Image We've Been Given?
BY STEVEN SORA

Although much of the Grail legends are only legends, the story of Guinevere and her family is real. The clan to which she belonged, and led, survive into the present day.   more...

THE OTHER SIDE
Getting ET on the Phone
How Hard Should We Try to Get in Touch?
BY ANDREW FAIN
How many times have you watched "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", or "Independence Day" and wondered if what happened in those films could ever really occur?    more...

ASTROLOGY
The Nabataean Zodiac
Astrological Insights from the Lost City of Petra
BY JULIE LOAR
At its height around 100 BCE the Nabataean empire included parts of Jordan, Egypt, Israel, Syria, and Saudi Arabia. The heart of the kingdom was Petra, "rock" in Greek, that was known as Naqmu to the Nabataen culture. It was a fabulous city carved into living rock that poet John William Burgon described as "a rose-red city half as old as time."   more...
