JESUS & THE GNOSTICS

The Quest for Historical Reality Takes Some Startling New Turns

BY MARTIN RUGGLES

In November of 2018, not only did archaeologists report discovery, in the Israel desert, of a 1500-year-old painting said to be of Jesus as a young man (see page 11), but also, in the region south of Qumran in Palestine, the neighborhood where the famous Dead Sea Scrolls were found in the 1940s and 50s, new caves have come to light

DENISOVANS IN AMERICA?

A Closer Look at DNA and the Coming of the ‘Thunder People‘

 

BY ANDREW COLLINS

 

In 2010 the existence of a previously unknown archaic human population was discovered following the DNA sequencing of a finger bone over 41,000 years old. It had been found two years earlier in the Denisova Cave, a Stone Age occupational site located in the Altai Mountains of southern Siberia. Here also three molars, two of enormous size, were retrieved. These too were found to belong to this same group of archaic humans, who are today known as the Denisovans after their place of discovery.

PYRAMIDS & THE GODS OF WEATHER

An Electrifying New Take on Possible Lost Ancient Technology?

BY KONSTANTIN BORISOV, Ph.D.

 

After about 150 years of Egyptology as an academic field, there still appears to be no agreement between scholars on the true function of the Egyptian pyramids. Traditional Egyptology insists the pyramids were used as tombs for the Pharaohs and their queens. Not all accept that idea, though.

Is There More Truth to the Legends than We Realized?

 

BY CLAUDE LECOUTEUX

 

There were and still are important differences in size between the races. For proof of this, you need only stand a Dutchman next to a Lusitanian (Lusitania was the name of the ancient Roman province in what is now Portugal). So, depending on the viewpoint of this individual or that individual, we see the appearance of giants or dwarfs in stories.

Located atop Mount Padang in West Java, the structure is topped by an archaeological site that was discovered in the early 19th century and holds rows of ancient stone pillars. But the sloping “hill“ underneath isn‘t part of the natural, rocky landscape; it was crafted by human hands and could  date to 28,000 years ago, according to the researchers.

THE MANY FACES OF 'SKEPTICISM'

Taking a Closer Look at Where All the Noise Is Coming from
BY MICHAEL E. TYMN


Many words have been subject to changes in meaning, embellishment, twisting, or distortion for political, promotional, or propaganda reasons. One such word is skeptic (sceptic for the British). Webster and other dictionaries focus on the "uncertainty" of knowing aspect of the word, which comes from the Latin scepticus and the Greek skeptikos, meaning "thoughtful" or "inquiring."

PROPHECIES AND THE THIRD TEMPLE

Are We About Due for the Apocalypse?

BY JONATHON PERRIN

There is perhaps no more iconic a vision than the Old City walls of Jerusalem surrounding the golden-topped Dome of the Rock. People from around the world travel there to both connect with history and seek a religious experience. However, in recent years, there has been an amplification of “end-times“ fervor associated with the spot. Increasing numbers of Christians and Jews believe the long prophesied “End of Days“ will soon take place in Jerusalem, specifically on the Temple Mount, a place Time magazine has called “the most volatile 35 acres on Earth.“

JESUS IN KASHMIR?

Did the Bible Tell the Whole Story?

BY STEVEN SORA

It is a shared belief among Christians and Muslims that Jesus Christ died on the Cross and soon thereafter ascended into heaven. The belief is not shared by everyone and for years books have emerged saying Jesus survived the Crucifixion and went to India. In 2010 several international news organizations ran stories of the tomb of Jesus in a town called Srinagar in Kashmir. The BBC, the Times of Britain, and The Times of India all carried the story The tomb is also mentioned in Lonely Planet‘s guide to Kashmir and more recently Trip Advisor reviews cover the tomb as well.
