- NASA CONCEDES: PLANET 9 PROBABLY REAL
The late Zecharia Sichin, is probably cheering these days. In October, 2017, NASA publicly conceded that, in all likelihood the Solar System has a ninth planet. Sitchin’s scenario of a planet Nibiru making periodic returns to Earth’s neighborhood to tinker with human history, may not quite fit with NASA’s view of a massive body on a vast orbital path, as yet untracked. Yet, still, many of the elements Sitchin said he had decoded from ancient Sumerian cuneiform texts seem to be present in the now favored ninth-planet theory.
- ARCHAEOLOGICAL SHOCKER: FIRST AMERICANS WERE HERE OVER 130 THOUSAND YEARS AGO
The idea that modern humans, or even Neanderthals, could have been present in America over twelve thousand years ago has long been controversial, and discoveries which support that argument have been denied, discredited, or disregarded by conventional science. Extraordinary new findings in California, however, are making the case that more than 130 thousand years ago someone used stone tools to break the bones of mastodons. The intent, it is speculated, would have been to extract the nutritious bone marrow. According to archaeologist Steven Holen, as reported by the prestigious science website NewScientist.com, the evidence is “fairly conclusive.”
- CANADIANS OVER 13 THOUSAND
Score another point for ‘mythology’ over science. For thousands of years, the indigenous Heiltsuk Nation of British Columbia has relayed an oral tradition from generation to generation that its ancestors escaped the harsh conditions of the Ice Age on a temperate island off the coast of Canada. Now archaeologists, once convinced that no humans were in North America before 12,000 years ago, are facing powerful new evidence that the Heiltsuk may have been right all along.
- TASMANIAN TIGERS STILL AROUND?
While public debate over the existence of bigfoot rages on (see Todd Prescott’s article on page 32 in this issue), another species declared extinct by the powers that be, is making signs of reappearing.
- CYBORG EYES
In the 1984 movie, The Terminator, a Cyborg–a being with both organic and biomechatronic body parts–from the future, played by Arnold Swartzenegger, searches for the mother of a yet-to-be-born hero who will be a scourge to the robots who rule that world to come. It was all science fiction, of course, but the memorable artificial eyes of the ‘Terminator’ could turn out to be more fact than fiction.
- IS CHINA MAKING ‘IMPOSSIBLE’ SPACE DRIVE?
In the race to develop the EM Drive, China may have moved ahead of the U.S. The mysterious–and, some would say, ‘impossible’–space drive technology successfully tested recently by NASA, has been converted by Chinese scientists into a working prototype. That, at least, is the claim of the Chinese propaganda ministry.
- AMERICANS BELIEVE IN ADVANCED ANCIENT CIVILIZATION
For anyone wondering how a magazine like Atlantis Rising could even exist, the answer may be found in a new survey from Chapman University. In an October 2017 poll on ‘Paranormal Beliefs’ Chapman found that 55% of the public “agree” or “strongly agree” with the statement: “Ancient, advanced civilizations, such as Atlantis, once existed.”
- ALTERNATIVE SCIENCE
Catastrophic Weather & ‘Global Warming’
BY SUSAN B.MARTINEZ, Ph.D.
Here in Georgia the lights went out on September 11 when Hurricane Irma came roaring through. Not only were they back-to-back storms (Harvey, Irma, Jose, Maria, etc.), but in those same terrifying weeks, Mexico was hit with three mighty earthquakes. All too predictably, the hurricanes were blamed on global warming. But could they also blame the quakes on warming? They’ve tried.
