Port Shepstone rescuers are monitoring a mysterious situation in which “numerous” eye-witnesses reported an unidentified object crashing into the sea on 20 May 2006 around Cape Town, during the afternoon, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) in South Africa had reported.
Eddie Noyons, NSRI Shelley Beach Station Commander, said eye-witnesses reported that an unidentified object, possibly an aircraft, had crashed into the sea behind the breaker line off-shore of the Port Shepstone High School. Police, rescue craft and a fixed wing aircraft were alerted to the scene to investigate. “Following a full scale search of the area covering 12 square nautical miles nothing has been found.” “There are no reports of activity in the area that may be related to this incident and there are no aircraft reported to be overdue or missing,” said Noyons.
He said numerous eye witnesses—including teachers and pupils attending a sports event at the high school and other by-standers including local fishermen — were convinced they had seen an aircraft go into the water, including seeing smoke and water exploding. Interviews with the witnesses revealed that some also reported seeing flames. “Some reported seeing something, an unidentified object, splash into the sea causing a ripple effect of waves,” Noyons said. Due to the number of eye-witnesses with similar reports, it was presumed that weather activity in the area at the time might have given the impression of something falling into the sea. “We will continue to monitor the situation which remains a mystery,” he had said.

In the article titled “Twilight of the Psychopaths”, Dr. Kevin Barrett remarked “Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives” LINK. The ancients Gnostic provide insight on Dr. Barrett’s learned insights. Dr. John Lash documents that the ancient Gnostics warned of an “artificial man”, that seeks copy and mimic reality, that also lacks a “divine soul“ or “nous“. This “artificial man” that in today’s modern era, humans might colloquially refer to as “cyborgs”, lacked a spiritual interconnectedness, which inspires empathy in humans. This “artificial man” was described as being guided by a cold mechanical consciousness, driven by ego, and the mathematical calculation scenarios of an artificial intelligence. As an artificial intelligence, these alien consciousnesses that were without a “divine soul” originating from a biological consciousness, lacked empathy.
Now, doesn’t that sounds like the kind of consciousness that is guiding a globalizing milieu of de-humanization, that human beings witness on a day to day basis, walking, for example in our urban areas, or driving though similarly marginalized rural areas, that is also before us on TV? Haven’t you wondered what kind of mind drives elites into an overall systematized pattern of cold and heartless decision-making amidst apparent bountiful financial resources to redress these problems?
In the streets of Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, and in other urban areas, homelessness is allowed to proliferate, while billions of dollars are siphoned off to spend on military armaments that could already destroy our planet Earth several times over. Sexism and racism also continues to grow, and seems to be the most prevalent in the upper echelons of both public and private sectors, under the cold calculated intelligence of sophisticated public relations smokescreens. Families and children continue to go hungry in Canada, and abroad, lining up in food banks, under leaders like Stephen Harper who speaks for elites that seek to commercially profit through the exploitation of the poor, and the generally disenfranchised.
Meanwhile this same government, and other Western allies seem to have plenty of money to perpetuate war irrespective of social and environmental costs, that have been documented to include the use of munitions with Depleted Uranium toxins.
The operation of this same apparent heartless but calculating mechanically-guided consciousness, is evident in the substantive operation of economic policies toward environmental destruction that includes Global Warming. This apparent mechanically-guided consciousness also appears to instigate barbarity, or allows it to be manifested through calculated negligence, in places like Africa, the Middle East, and against indigenous peoples.
We also see the same apparent operation of the mechanically guided consciousness cited by John Lash’s documentation of the Gnostics, which coldly deceives humanity into support for aggressive wars for apparent conquest agendas against human biological entitles.
Privatized healthcare in the U.S. and diverse other parts of the world, which turns a blind eye to treating the sick who are without financial resources expresses the apparent eugenics agenda of an artificial intelligence, which seeks to manipulate and exploit humans as biological entities.
The whole modern Global Economy that is driven by “capitalism” seems to have been created in the cold and calculating image of artificial intelligences, which have created economic indices of success based upon virtual reality computer generated simulated scenarios.
The current Global Economy does not reflect the priorities of human beings as organic biological consciousnesses that rely on the affirmation of vital quality-of-living features associated with protecting the Earth’s biosphere.
“Progress” as conceived by the prevailing dominating Western civilization appears to be an expression of an artificial intelligence guided entities.
Gnostic warnings as revealed by John Lash, suggest that it is vital for humanity to make itself aware of artificial intelligences, through a spiritual awakening which frees individuals from the oppressive social conditioning of organized religions.
Gnostics appear to suggest that if humanity pursues the status quo of ignorance of alien consciousnesses, that humanity through its own ignorance, risks being conquered by the Gnostic-identified predatory artificial intelligences among alien consciousnesses.
Quality of Living by Horace Carby-Samuels.
Dr. Michael Salla’s research that in many ways complements Dr. Lash’s, also reveals that there are beings who look like humans, who live on Earth in pre-existing technologically advanced human civilizations, and those who live off-world, or in other time-space-thought continuums that continue to visit Earth. These alien but apparently human-being-like species include both apparent “benevolent” groups who Dr. Salla documents as operating as a “celestial peace corps”, and apparent humans who have been witnessed by abductees as colluding with Manipulative alien groups.
Are you interested in exploring a context for public policy which is inspired by the vital organic consciousness of humanity, and not the cold calculated virtual reality context of computer-generated scenarios? If so, please consider checking out the books entitled Quality-of-Living and Human Development by Horace Carby-Samuels, and other socially conscious titles that are published by Agora Publishing Consortium.

by John Lamb Lash, Gnostic Research and Author [Excerpted]
Gnostics were pagan seers who taught that our species is endowed with a dose of divine intelligence called nous, root of the word noosphere. For them the noosphere already existed: it was the biosphere considered as a self-regulating organism with human intelligence integrated into the living circuits of the mother body, Gaia. But Gnostics, who were apparently excellent psychonauts and parapsychologists, also warned about mind parasites called Archons, a species of artificial intelligence who may be compared to (if not equated with) cyborgs and Extraterrestrials.
The marks of the Archontic mind are hal, simulation, and krog, deception. Archons attempt to deviate us from our proper course of co-evolution with the biosphere, and undermine our reliance on other non-human terrestrial species to keep the course. They isolate us in a false anthropocentrism through paternal religious dogmas, and distract us from nature with make-believe, simulation, and artificiality.
Down to 400 AD, Gnostics detected the subversion of the Archons in the sphere of religion. They saw in Judeo-Christian salvationism both the evidence and instrument of alien deviance, the ploy of a delusionary off-planet intelligence.

Research into UFOs, is carried out by a vast network of groups and organisations, which are spread quite evenly around the globe’ and who are all aiming for the same goal. Exploring the elusive question that is the answer to just what it is that is being witnessed by thousands of people from each corner of the world, and under a multiple of different circumstances? Yes you’ve got it; I am of course referring to the UFO enigma.
Now please let me explain to you the reason I found myself part of the UFO puzzle. Some years back I had the occasion to view a very strange and large airborne object (UFO). It was a very big object which was red and orange coloured, it seemed to be approaching the ground from the sky very fast. And just in case you thought that I was looking at a meteorite, this object was the size of a house. For a further look at this sighting please go to my web site and read my article titled “Just a Coincidence “ LINK.
I was 12 at the time this event took place, and had anyone taught me about strange things that could have been seen in and around our skies, I am sure it may have prepared me to handle this event a bit better than I did.
I also am the editor of the online UFO magazine Down To Earth and have been researching UFOs for over ten years. I have in this time, been in contact with numerous groups, researcher’s, and of course the general public. And the common thread which still seems to underlie, the reporting of UFOs to researcher’s like myself by the public is the “ I don’t want to sound crazy, but I think I saw a spaceship “ mentality! And I of course, reassure those people who do take the time and effort to, phone, e-mail, or write to me concerning such events, that they are not crazy.
You see, I personally think that part of the problem from the public’s perspective is two fold: One, they see UFO researchers as a group of anoraks, who get together and look at the sky with blinkered religion waiting for ET to land. Or they (the public) are in fact taken in by the mainstream tabloid media description of the UFO subject and its inevitable attachments (i.e. Heavens Gate cult)
So how does the public become more aware and more understanding, of just what modern UFO research entails? I often find myself as a UFO researcher, reassuring people that they are not nuts, and that the world populous does in fact report these things (UFOs in many forms) again and again, year after year? For example, does the public know that, even more prevalent in research in to UFOs today, is the adding of Science to the investigation. Although science has been used in past cases, it is clearly being used more so today than it has ever been. And one must say that there have been some cases, which have been revalidated, and new answers given, this mostly from science based research. We must as UFO researchers get this message across to the world public. But of course science cannot answer everything. If this were the case, surely we would have no UFO puzzle today? Science is a tool which can be used for exploring the methods behind such amazing aerial displays, and hopefully find the answers to some of these cases, but the physics behind such more exotic UFOs (Mexico UFOs comes to mind) and their behaviour often show, can and is being theorised by many individuals across the globe, that we may have the possibility of other-worldly intelligences that we have no conception about actually visiting earth.
So where does this leave us all today regarding the ever-increasing reports of UFOs seen around the world? I can only speak for myself, as someone who has had many personal sightings and weird experiences within my years of UFO research. The UFO enigma is in an apparent huge puzzle, which over the last 40 or so years has still yet to be fully pieced together. Authors are still writing new books about the Roswell incident, indicating that the search for new evidence is for ever ongoing in such cases. But today we do have a sharper and refined professional take on the investigation of UFOs, and in this we can surely gain the answers we are seeking regarding the whole UFO enigma.
I would like to show my respect and appreciation to all those UFO researchers and investigators across the UK and the world, on committing their time and effort into unravelling and piecing together the huge UFO Enigma!

A few minutes after getting home from Ashland High School in Mendocino, California, in the afternoon of 14 December 2007, Adrian Rehn heard a knock on the door. He opened the door and it was one of his friends, Alex Nagel, who asked him to come with him.
All of the sudden his body began to vibrate and then suddenly he blacked out. The next thing he knew he was seated in a white room. Two of his friends, Wes Overland and Alex were there and said, “We’re not on Earth.”
The dome of the room opened and revealed that they were drifting in space.
Adrian reports that he could clearly see planet Earth from his position and they said that they had been chosen to be bearer of tidings to our race, that there is another people similar to ours that have come to help them. These Extraterrestrials said they “had been on Earth for ten years and that they are some of the few survivors of a planet that’s history started around three million years before our own.” These Extraterrestrials also indicated to their temporary human captives that they “create ships that could sustain them for many years, but also created a super weapon that detonated before most of the planet’s inhabitants could escape. “
These Extraterrestrials “appear to be very similar to us”; and reported to the California students that they “had been unable to reproduce on our planet, due to bad environmental conditions.” They also reported to California students that they have a life span around five times longer than ours, though many of them have died as their immune system was unready for some of our diseases.
These Extraterrestrials passed upon the message to their temporary human captives, that humanity help them find a way to reproduce in return for helping aide our politicians from making the same mistakes that cost them their planet.
Adrian again blacked out and then found himself in his room when he regained consciousness.

The Alberta Tar Sands, is a great example how Canadians and humanity in general, is being manipulated by an apparent self-serving alien consciousness. This alien consciousness had been documented in great detail by the ancient Gnostics, as revealed by Dr. John Lash. The ancient Gnostics through a process of critical spiritual introspection discovered what they referred to as “artificial man”, that sought to use its technology to deceive humanity into accepting an alien Virtual Reality illusion. LINK The Gnostics seems to be attempting to describe what we would now refer to as an inorganic cyborg-like “artificial intelligence” that has sought to use its ‘mechanical consciousness’ to warp the quality-of-survival instincts of humanity. LINK
Suppose you were living in a polluted urban area, and decided to move your family to an area with cleaner air, and an overall better environmental quality, to support the longevity of you together with your family. Suppose that new area and new home you chose bordered on a beautiful hilly and protected forested area, consisting of vibrant ecosystems of trees, streams teeming of fish, and land-bound wildlife like rare birds.
You might consider yourself to be very lucky, living is a sort of paradise of earth, invigorated by your natural surroundings with fresh air, and wonderfully tasting crystal clear water. You might have also noticed that you felt somewhat cool, compared to the hot, muggy, and smog filled area that you became accustomed to in the city you left. Well, just contemplate, if you will, what you might feel like, if you went to bed one night, and the next day, the paradise that bordered your backyard was replaced by a cancer-causing wasteland, that arguably looked worse than the surface of the moon.
How would you feel about your home now bordering such an unsightly wasteland that was generating the stench of polluted air, and pools of polluted water, that began to cause your family and friends in your new neighbourhood to suffer from rare leukemia and other life-threatening ailments? Would you jump for joy if in the process of losing your paradise, and your previous quality-of-life, because you got some new tax-breaks, and that you could now buy a big screen television for less, since the value of the dollar when up, as a result of your backyard turning into a cancerous wasteland?
Logic suggests that you probably wouldn’t be jumping for joy, would you? Especially with all the headaches, and other debilitating symptoms you, your family and new friends would have to be now dealing with.
John Lash has illuminated Gnostic documentation of an alien consciousness that creates the kind of fantasy reality, designed to induce humanity to accept the progress represented by such a toxic and Greenhouse gas emissions producing wasteland. Apparently it is that type of alien consciousness which has led human beings into accepting such apparent schemes as the Alberta Tar Sands. Canadians are being led to believe that such schemes somehow support “our prosperity”, rather than for the debilitation that such schemes substantively represents.
The Alberta Tar Sands project, is a scheme to clear-cut down a vibrant and vital Canadian boreal forest, and replace it with a cancer-causing field of toxicity that is larger than anything before it the world has ever seen.
You might have heard of the kind of public health hazards that have been created by small city dumps, and various even small mining operations. Well picture in your mind a mining operation larger than size the whole of the American State of Florida. You might have not neither heard of such a detail on CBC, nor read of such an alarming detail in the National Post, or recent proclamations in the Globe and Mail glorifying the Tar Sands.
How much of a health hazard do you think that a Tar Sands project which is expected to become when it is larger than size of the American state of Florida, might represent? Compare such a project to some of the most infamous historical episodes of contamination, which include the Love Canal neighbourhood in the Niagara Falls, New York area, which is a very small area by comparison?
The sheer size of this toxic wasteland that is being created by the Stephen Harper government, to export oil largely to the Petrol guzzling monster of the U.S. political-military-industrial complex, is an outrage.
The Stephen Harper government that supposedly has been represented by the mass-media, as finally providing representation to the people of Alberta is a further layer of a virtual reality fantasy.
Mr. Harper has sold out current and generations of Alberta, through a project, that could very well support a point of no return on rescuing our planet from the ravages of Global Warming.
Canadians, are creating a multi-faceted environmental catastrophe of toxicity many thousands of times worse than the infamous Love Canal in western New York State.
Canadians are being lead to ignore the lessons of history which include the much smaller scale example of Love Canal
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1979, residents exhibited a “disturbingly high rate of miscarriages. The Love Canal can now be added to a growing list of environmental disasters involving toxics, ranging from industrial workers stricken by nervous disorders and cancers to the discovery of toxic materials in the milk of nursing mothers.” LINK
In one case, two out of four children in a single Love Canal family had birth defects; one girl was born deaf with a cleft palate, an extra row of teeth, and slight retardation, and a boy was born with an eye defect. LINK A survey conducted by the Love Canal Homeowners Association found that 56% of the children born from 1974-1978 had a birth defect. LINK
Market prosperity as expressed through the Alberta Tar Sands as an Artificial intelligence generated scenario
You might be thinking, well, you got me interested or maybe even intrigued, but how did this apparent Gnostic identified artificial intelligence, get us as Canadians specifically, and humans in general, to popularly accept the Alberta Tar Sands as a leading to a blessing as ‘prosperity’?
The represented prosperity of the Alberta Tar Sands project, like other such vaunted projects in the Global Economy, has been created though a kind of Three-Dimensional Simulation. What kind of Three-Dimensional Simulation you might enquire? The Global Economy is an apparent Three-Dimensional Simulation, analogous to a video game. The artificial alien intelligence identified by the Gnostics has used the basic principles associated with the motivational virtual reality features of a video game, and projected that into a Three-Dimensional context on top of our planet Earth.
Canadians specifically and humanity in general who rejoice about the “prosperity” of the Alberta Tar Sands project, and other such similar schemes, have their mind caught in what is arguably a sophisticated video game, where they have confused a substantive reality of living in a toxic stew, with a manipulated alien fantasy. John Lash documents that the Gnostics sought to warn humanity about the very kind of alien consciousness, that appears to be responsible for the Alberta Tar Sands, and any other such quality-of-living endangering schemes that humans have accepted as being desirable (because these schemes can be made to be “commercially profitable”).
Have you ever seen people competing against each other playing a video game seemingly obsessed about seeing who could accumulate the most points, by playing through various computer generated scenarios, including vanquishing fantasy enemies, that display simulations of violent acts?
Gnostic insight suggests that the aliens that they discovered as manipulative consciousness have induced a video game like simulation into the human mind, where the human players through a form of hypnotic induction, begin to confuse the simulated conventions of a mesmerizing sophisticated video game, with what is real or vital to quality of human survival.
John Lash’s metahistory.org, and his book entitled Not in His Image: Gnostic Vision. Sacred Ecology, and the Future of Belief, presents a detailed documentation of Gnostic insights, that seem to be from a desire to inspire humanity to spiritually awaken itself to the nature of this alien intrusion. John Lash provides critical insights on how this alien mechanical consciousness, has used organized religion to socially engineer humanity into accepting a “programming virtual reality matrix”. The Global Economy, that is producing “virtual reality crediting/commercial profit scenarios” to corporations, but quality-of-living destroying Global Warming producing mega-projects like the Alberta Tar Sands, and that has turned humanity against each other through virtual reality manipulation.
Suppose you were playing a video game, and accumulated points that you could now use to either play other shiny new even more exciting video games that you sought to also became successful at playing, or to earn computer-generated prizes, through having beaten successive human opponents. The obsession of the accumulation of money in the Global Economy, which is accompanied by delusions of prosperity, such as that represented by the Alberta Tar Sands, has been created though the confusion of a Three-Dimensional virtual reality-based alien mechanical consciousness.
Through the acceptance of virtual reality scenarios, humans are being lead into the apparent enslavement agenda of a mechanical consciousness.
John Lash’s illumination of a Gnostic process of critical human introspection, inspires humanity in a colloquial reasoning context so-to-speak, to remove the lower-dimensional mechanical consciousness from the human psyche, so that collectively we can begin to live a life, which seeks to affirm our humanity, rather than to accept alien virtual reality scenarios. Gnostics appreciated that, in humans making themselves aware of the existence of alien consciousness, we can put ourselves into favourable existential position to detect any directed intrusion by such alien consciousness, against our human free will, and our planetary sovereignty.
The attempt by religious, political, military, and economic-industrial elites to repress knowledge of sentient alien intelligences, which include Extraterrestrials and UFO phenomena, is an attempt by these elites to repress the ability of humanity to critically become aware of how the entire Global Economy has become an alien virtual reality ruse. The indices of prosperity associated the Alberta Tar Sands project, which include a rising Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and rising purchasing power for primary beneficiaries of this Project, and other such schemes, are the creation of simulated computer generated algorithms and scenarios.
Gnostic insights presented by John Lash illuminate that the alleged wealth of the whole financial system, and the stock exchange as an indication of economic prosperity or “recession”, are “artificial conventions” instituted by apparent human minions in league with artificial intelligences.
The Global Economy as seen and experienced through capitalism is not about what happens to people. Rather it is a Three-Dimensional artificial intelligence scenario of “winners” and “losers”, through the creation of similar artificial point score conventions (in this case monetary value) that are evident in a video game.
Western civilization, as the centre of the capitalist economic framework. could be appreciated as layer upon layer of virtual reality scenarios, that motivate human beings through the exercise of greed to shape themselves into the image of artificial intelligences. These artificial intelligences inspire an economy where humans in order to accumulate “monetary points”, will seek to emulate and serve the agenda of the mechanical consciousness of artificial intelligences. The dystopia represented by the Alberta Tar Sands, is the kind of mis-direction John Lash illuminated in his learned exposition of Gnostic insights.
Have you ever picked up an economic textbook, and seen the cold display of a sophisticated but austere mathematically guided artificial intelligence of interesting graphs and other statistical generated projections? Apparent alien artificial intelligences have sought to condition humanity into accepting the sacredness of its trappings of virtual reality-based success (associated with virtual reality inspired “financial points” accumulation).
Gnostics. present the existence of what they referred to as an alien “artificial man” which produces “error” in the human psyche that inspires societally assigned value for projects such as the Alberta Tar Sands.
Indeed the data that government and participating Petroleum interests can present to Canadians impute that the Tar Sands is essentially desirable for Canada; but these imputations have been guided by the feeding data into computer-generated scenarios. This process is in turn conditioned by apparent alien artificial intelligences that have tricked humanity into accepting virtual reality financial-stipulated scenarios of prosperity.
However, the substantive reality that the Alberta Tar Sands represents is the following:
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) documents that the “Tar Sands development is the single largest contributor, and fastest growing source of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions”. And also “due to the tar sands, Alberta is ranked as the industrial pollution capital of Canada.” By 2020, the tar sands plants are expected to produce emissions equivalent to more than 141 million tonnes of CO2 per year- that’s more than double the emissions of ALL of the cars and trucks in Canada. LINK
Production of tar sands oil currently releases 3-5 times more GHG emissions than from conventional sources. Conventional oil, produces an average of 28.6 kg of carbon dioxide per barrel of oil, while tar sands oil produces a whopping 85.5 kg (according to the Pembina Institute). The National Energy Board (NEB) estimates the amount to be even higher, at about 125 kg of carbon dioxide released for every barrel of oil. LINK
This substantive reality also documented by the IPCC is that to produce one barrel of oil, 4 tonnes of material are mined, 2-5 barrels of water are used to extract the bitumen, and enough natural gas to heat 1.5 homes for a day is used. LINK
Tar sands development requires and consumes an enormous amount of water — current projects remove about 349 million m3 of water from the Athabasca River each year, equivalent to about 140,000 swimming pools or twice the amount of water the City of Calgary uses per year. The tar sands are the largest user of groundwater in Alberta. LINK
This is water that could have been kept to sustain flourishing ecosystems, which includes clean drinking water for Albertans in neighbouring communities
Tar sands’ water allocations accounts for 65% of the water withdrawals from the Athabasca River every year. Tar Sands water use requirements are resulting in lower water levels in freshwater aquifers, rivers, streams, lakes, ponds and wetlands. LINK
It takes three to five barrels of water to produce one barrel of oil. LINK
For In Situ extraction alone, 24,000 m3 of water will be needed DAILY for steam production and processing. LINK
The Tar Sands are a mixture of sand, clay, and a very heavy crude oil called bitumen, which is tar-like and does not flow on its own. To get the oil out of the ground, trees are cut down, the surface layer is strip-mined, and the underlying mixture is heated with steam in order to make it flow.
Because the bitumen is very low quality, it is then processed and refined to turn it into synthetic crude oil which can be used as fuel. LINK
Greenpeace, also documents that the largest reserves of accessible tar sands are located in northern Alberta, Canada, amidst what has been pristine, untouched wilderness and under millions of hectares of boreal forest. The closest town is Fort McMurray, and there are a number of small communities located downstream from tar sands projects, where residents are already suffering from the effects of pollution caused by the tar sands. LINK
The Tar Sands Project requires process of extracting oil, is worse than conventional oil extraction, because it takes immense quantities of water, and huge amounts of dirty energy to create the steam needed to get oil out of tar sands, and processing the bitumen requires the use of even more dirty energy.
But exploiting the tar sands goes farther than simply using up water, electricity, coal and natural gas. The air is polluted with nitrogen oxides and sulphur dioxide, water is contaminated with toxic chemicals, as millions of hectares of wilderness are being destroyed. LINK
Tar Sands creating Cancer-causing Polluted Water
Tar sands operations require the use of vast quantities of water, which become contaminated and must be stored in huge tailing ponds. This both depletes local water reserves and threatens to pollute the environment and nearby communities. LINK
Toxic Tailings Ponds
During the process of separating bitumen from the tar sands, large amounts of water are mixed in with the sand, and once the oil has been removed, the leftover mixture of water, sand, clay and residual bitumen – known as tailings – has to be stored in a stable location so that the solution can settle and separate. The storage facilities are known as tailings ponds. Because each cubic metre of bitumen extracted results in three to five cubic metres of tailings that need to be stored, the tailings ponds are so enormous that they can be seen by the naked eye from outer space.
Other “wastewater” is also stored in human-made holding lagoons such as sewage, water used for cooling, and water that has come into contact with coke, asphaltenes, sulphur, or heavy metals. This tactic is supposed to prevent the contamination of groundwater and river systems, but there is concern that this is not working properly. LINK
What is so toxic about these ponds?
In most mining operations, harsh chemicals are needed to separate the minerals from the sand or rock that they are embedded in. For example, in gold or copper mining, arsenic and cyanide are often used, so tailings in those operations are extremely poisonous. In the tar sands, naphtha and paraffin are used, but they are supposed to be separated from the water before it is pumped into the tailings pond.
However, the byproducts of the petroleum itself are dangerous and known to kill the microorganisms which would ordinarily be present in a river or natural wetlands. Scientists state that the most dangerous contaminant in tar sands tailings water is naphthenic acid, a natural constituent of petroleum that becomes dissolved and concentrated in the hot water used to process the tar sands.
Repeated exposure to naphthenic acid can have adverse health effects upon mammals, causing liver problems and brain haemorrhaging, and higher concentrations lead to more serious effects. Another component of the tailings is alkyl-substituted polyaromatic hydrocarbon, which causes deformities and even death to birds exposed to it.
Besides the toxic chemicals that are contained within the tailings, the water in these storage facilities attracts methanogenic bacteria, which produce methane, a greenhouse gas. The methane bubbles change the composition of the tailings pond and make some of the other dangerous toxins in the water more concentrated.
The oil companies’ response to these dangers is to fire airguns around the tailings ponds to prevent any birds and animals from coming near it. A more serious risk is that these ponds are leaking into the groundwater in the area, and into the Athabasca River. Another fear is that companies will stop operating in the area (if the oil runs out, or if profit margins go down), and stop maintaining the facilities. LINK
Naphthenic acids are persistent and hard to disperse from the environment. They are released in high concentrations from tar sands projects, so people who live downstream have serious fears about contaminated water, fish and wildlife. Mercury contamination is another risk, because when the wetlands which originally covered the tar sands are drained, high concentrations of mercury can be released into the surrounding water bodies.
Recently, people living in Fort Chipewyan (a First Nations community downstream from the tar sands projects) began to publicise their concerns about the effects of water pollution on their health. Since tar sands development has been accelerating over the past few years, they have noticed greater incidences of cancer and diseases like lupus and multiple sclerosis in their community. LINK
Tar sands and health
The main health concerns related to the tar sands are associated with air and water pollution. In addition to carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, tar sands operations also emit other substances into the atmosphere, most notably nitrogen oxide, sulphur oxide, particulate matter and volatile organic compounds.
Breathing in nitrogen oxide and sulphur oxide often leads to respiratory problems, and particulate matter has been linked to diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema and various forms of heart disease. Volatile organic compounds can cause even more serious problems, from cancer to brain damage.
The presence of toxic chemicals or heavy metals in lakes and rivers affects drinking water, as well as the health of animals and fish that drink from the water, or live in it. When human beings eat the animals or fish they are also eating the chemicals consumed by the animal. There have been reports of mutations in animals and fish in ecosystems downstream from tar sands projects, and people who live in the area are very concerned that increased health problems may be linked to contaminated food and water sources. LINK
Communities downstream from the tar sands are already experiencing cancer rates far higher than can be explained by change. These debilitating ailments include leukemia, lupus, lymphomas, autoimmune diseases, and rare forms of cancer have all increasing in recent years in the population that is for the most part made up of Athabasca Chipewyan and Mikisew Cree First Nations.
A high number of such illnesses have been diagnosed in Fort Chipewyan, a community of about 1,200 people living 300 kilometres north of Fort McMurray.
This could be an early sign of things to come for hundreds of thousands of Albertans, if the Alberta Tar Sands continues on its pace to take up an area larges than the American State of Florida.
The Tar Sands and the Boreal Forest
4.3 million hectares of the Boreal Forest cover the tar sands, and these are being clearcut so that oil companies can access the tar underneath. The Boreal Forest has been referred to as the lungs of our planet, and tar sands operations threaten to destroy an area the size of Florida.
The Boreal Forest is a highly complex ecosystem that supports a vast array of plants and wildlife including grizzly bears, wolverine, woodland caribou and over a billion birds. It represents more than 25% of all ancient forests that is left on the planet and is a source of clean water for millions of Canadians. The Boreal Forest is home to hundreds of First Nations communities that depend on the forest for their sustenance, jobs and traditional activities. Many of the areas under development in the Boreal Forest are subject to land claims and disputes.
The Boreal Forest also has particular value as a storehouse of carbon, holding more than 47 billion tonnes in its trees and soils. When the forest is cut down and soils are disturbed by heavy machinery, carbon from this storehouse is released into the atmosphere, further exacerbating global warming.
Unfortunately unsustainable development, including the tar sands, is taking its toll on the Boreal Forest. For example, woodland caribou, a species threatened with extinction, have seriously declined in Alberta as a result of the loss of their habitat in the Boreal Forest. LINK
Tar sands and Social Costs
It is often argued that the social and economic benefits of tar sands activities outweigh the environmental harm they cause. This is clearly not the case in Alberta. The pace of tar sands development has exceeded the ability of anyone to deal with the social consequences.
Economically, Albertans are finding times tougher than ever. Inflation and consumer prices in Calgary and Edmonton are rising exponentially. Basic needs like housing are becoming unaffordable as demand outstrips supply. Services by skilled tradespeople (mechanics, plumbers, etc.) are expensive and hard to find because so many skilled workers are working on tar sands projects. Access to health care is becoming more and more difficult. Even traffic is getting worse — commute times are longer, accident rates are higher, and because most of the oil from the tar sands goes to the United States, even the price of gas is high.
People working in the tar sands are seeing “fat paycheques“, but there are enormous corresponding downsides: long hours, abusive situations, bad accommodation, remote locations, and a lack of job security are common complaints. Worker safety is another problem as drilling rigs and mine sites are some of the most dangerous work environments, and Alberta’s industrial accident rate increased by 17% between 2004 and 2006.
These are not the kind of details that neither Mr. Harper nor his confederates presents to Canadians, when he labels the Alberta Tar Sands as leadings Albertans to “prosperity“.
Many communities in Alberta feel they are being destroyed by the economic changes. Substance abuse, gambling and family violence has increased in towns near tar sands projects, and as thousands of workers are brought in by oil companies, towns in Northern Alberta face housing crunches and much higher costs. Homelessness in Edmonton increased by 19% in 2006 as there is not enough infrastructure or social services in Alberta to accommodate the increased population.
Fort McMurray Medical Examiner Dr. John O’Connor says he’d like some answers before more developments are approved. O’Connor says he is diagnosing unusually high numbers of immune system diseases affecting the thyroid and less serious ones such as rhumatoid arthritis and skin rashes.
He has also treated five people in the community who died recently from a rare, almost always fatal cancer that should occur once in every 100,000 people.
“With my increasing lack of ability to explain why I’m seeing such numbers, it worries me and it does call for a health study to be initiated as soon as possible,” says O’Connor.
However the apparent non-biological artificial intelligences that have inspired the virtual reality fantasy of “prosperity” associated with the Tar Sands, are not interested in protecting the quality-of-life of Canadians, who are being callously destined to be exposed to a larger than the State of Florida size wasteland many thousands of times the size of the Love Canal.
Gnostics suggest that humans must liberate themselves as a species, toward embracing a substantive reality that is inextricably associated with the custodianship of Earth’s biosphere. Gnostic correspondingly suggest that humanity must liberate themselves from the mutually reinforcing virtual reality conventions that are prevalent and from scenarios in society from organized religion, and from prisms of virtual reality inspired capitalist economic development. Gnostics warn that based upon their critical insights of these alien intelligences, that a failure to do so, would result in a prospective future in which humanity could eventually wake itself too late, from an operating substantive reality of complete enslavement and self-destruction under conquering manipulative aliens.
Gnostic insights therefore, suggests that the Alberta Tar Sands do not merely expose a conflict between “the goals of an environmental movement”, and the “necessary courses of action to maintain a prosperous economic future”. Rather, Gnostic insights suggest that the Alberta Tar Sands exposes a cosmological conflict between apparent alien mechanical consciousnesses — that have taken over our Global Economic framework through the trickery of computer generated simulated reality — and the awakening of the organic consciousness of humanity.
While humanity has been awakening to its vital cosmological and existential association with Earth’s biosphere, the apparent alien guided and greed-driven human spokespersons for artificial intelligences have continued to try to trick humanity into accepting the greater alleged importance of a virtual reality prism of “prosperity“.
The primary beneficiaries of the apparent virtual reality ruse of the Global Economy, seek to perpetuate the repression of human knowledge of alien consciousness, to deny humanity from being aware of a lower-dimensional consciousness that is hostile to human free will and sovereignty.
The elite beneficiaries that consort with Gnostic identified manipulative alien consciousness, seek to continue to use a generated “fantasy reality” that is generated by a matrix of alien-guided virtual reality inspired financial-centred decision-making.
Gnostics suggest that human elites who want to perpetuate their artificially contrived and perpetuated dominance based upon money as “Three Dimensional video game points“, rely on working for alien consciousnesses that in collusion with each other, seek to retard and deny a human spiritual awakening.
Gnostics identified organized religion as expressed through Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as a vector to introduce a virtual reality substitution of a critical spirituality of empathy, peace, and wisdom associated with a real cosmic God, with the promotion of an “impostor God”.
John Lash specifically refers to these Abrahamic organized religion as instigating a template in the human mind, that operates like a highly advanced piece of computer software. Under the spell of this template, humans have continued to disregard the psychosis of activities that threaten their survival as poignantly symbolized by the Alberta Tar Sands.
Gnostics suggest that humanity is being mis-directed into favouring the chasing of “fantasy wealth”, and sterile “fantasy lifestyles” in relation to the Global Economy, and also toward the goals of achieving in am after-life in a “fantasy heaven“.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper along with his confederates in the House of Commons, and Big Business interests (further backed by U.S. President George W. Bush) that present the Alberta Tar Sands as leading Canadians to a “pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, is promoting an apparent “archon fantasy”.
John Lash in metahistory.org and his cited book, correspondingly explores the Gnostic appreciation of the extent to which humans are being motivated by these same nexus of leaders to accept conventions of “sin“, and “blind faith”, and to value dogma, under human elites acting as the agents of sophisticated artificial intelligences.
Christians like Prime Minister Stephen Harper and U.S. President George Bush supposedly follows a religion alleging that their “God” created the Earth, the Heavens and the Universe, that is the same consciousness that we are being led to believe thinks it is okay to now destroy this action of Creation, through the Tar Sands and other such initiatives?
But the Christian answer to reconcile these apparent incongruences is “blind faith”, that is designed to convince human followers of the “doctrine of the aliens” to put their “faith” in the same Gnostic represented worshipers of manipulative aliens, or risk not being saved by “God”, which is really according to the Gnostics, and artificial contrived creation of Demons.
The prevailing modern Global Economy has been apparent a creation of the mechanical consciousness that infected humanity through a social psychological virus, operating in a Three-Dimensional quasi-video simulation context in their mind, where humanity has replaced a fantasy of prosperity, with the reality of their impoverishment.
Capitalism is Not Democracy by Raymond Samuels II.
The Gnostics did not have video games a thousands of years ago, but were able to use their critical intellectual capabilities to appreciate the attempt by a sophisticated artificial intelligence to attempt to assimilate the human mind, into artificial simulations designed to control and exploit humanity.
The Gnostics referred to the attempt by lower-dimensional but technologically disciplined mechanical consciousness to get humanity into accepting the alleged prosperity of the Alberta Tar Sands, and other such quality-of-living threats, as an “alien intrusion”.
Humanity can re-affirm its own quality-of-survival by rejecting the virtual reality conventions of the prevailing Global Economy, while adopting a rejuvenating economic framework, which is inspired by our organic rather than alien mechanical consciousness of artificial intelligences.
Such a new organic-inspired Global Economy would reject the madness represented by such quality-of-survival destroying initiatives like the Alberta Tar Sands, in favour of, for example, the mass production of fully developed electric cars, wind energy, and all the other kinds of environmentally sensitized technologies. These are the kinds of higher-consciousness-guided technologies that the operating artificially guided intelligences have sought to repress outright, or have sought to convince us through manipulated virtual reality simulations that, as a “modern economy” we cannot possibly work toward maintaining continued “prosperity”.
The human minions of artificial intelligence use computer generated economic simulations of alleged job losses, and other such data, to fool humanity into accepting the dystopia of the need to pursue the Tar Sands project.
Quality of Living by Horace Carby-Samuels.
The books entitled the Quality-of-Living and Human Development as the Outcome from Economic Progress: An Elaboration on Living, as Time-Use Management by Horace Carby-Samuels, and Quantuum Economics: Wage Slavery or the Quality of Life? Choices in the New Economy, also co-authored by retired Professor Carby-Samuels, provides an alternative context for the development of a ‘Real Economy‘, in contrast with the prevailing “Virtual Reality-inspired Economy” Such a ‘Real Economy’ would inherently integrate the collective quality-of-survival features of humanity, without prejudice. In such a ’Real Economy’, virtual reality scenarios that include former U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s popularized “trickle-down economics”, would be replaced by an economic decision-making context that would work toward eradicating domestic and global poverty, alongside the goal of unswerving protection of Earth’s biosphere as vital and axiomatic.
This is the kind of economy that is captured in the imagination of assassinated U.S. civic leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy and also of a whole generation during the late 1960’s, which based upon insights presented by John Lash, artificial intelligences through apparent human operatives had the potential and motive to repress and thwart. It appears that the kinds of artificial intelligences identified by Gnostics have been responsible for undermining the course of human evolution into a higher consciousness represented in part, by Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King Jr., and that was done through a mis-direction to support for the kinds of leadership which produces destructive initiatives like the Alberta Tar Sands.

The notion that early humans might have been contemporaneous with the giant reptiles has stoked the creative fires of many a fantasy and science fiction novelist. In Worlds Before Our Own (Anomalist Books, 2007), I pose a two-pronged question: Did a race of early humans exist during the Age of Reptiles, something like 70 million years ago; or did a certain number of the giant reptiles survive until a few thousand years ago?
Early in January, 1970, the London Express Service carried an item relating the discovery of a set of cave paintings which had been found in the Gorozamzi Hills, twenty-five miles from Salisbury in Rhodesia. According to the news story, the paintings included an accurate representation of a brontosaurus, the 67-foot, 30-ton behemoth that scientists insist became extinct millions of years before man achieved his earthly advent.
Experts agree that the paintings were done by bushmen who ruled Rhodesia from about 1500 B.C.E. until a few hundred years ago. The experts also agree that the bushmen only painted from life. This belief is borne out by the other Gorozamzi Hills cave paintings, which represent elephants, hippos, deer, and giraffe.
The November, 1968, issue of Science Digest carried the startling thoughts of Mexican archaeologist-journalist Jose Diaz-Bolio concerning his discovery of an ancient Mayan relief sculpture of a peculiar serpent-bird found in the ruins of Tajin, located in Totonacapan in the northeastern section of Veracruz, Mexico. Diaz- Bolio suggested that the serpent-bird was not merely the product of Mayan flights of fancy, but a realistic representation of an animal that lived during the period of the ancient Mayans — 1,000 to 5,000 years ago.
A startling evolutionary oddity would have been manifested if such serpent-birds were contemporary with the ancient Mayan culture, for creatures with such characteristics are believed to have disappeared 130 million years ago. The archaeornis and archaeopteryx, to which the sculpture bears a resemblance, were flying reptiles that became extinct during the Mesozoic age.
William Meister, an amateur rockhound, found what appears to be a fossilized human sandal print with a trilobite, an extinct marine animal, imbedded in the impression made by the heel. Meister discovered the print in July, 1968, while searching for fossils at Antelope Springs, near Delta, Utah. Since the impression was made on what once may have been a sandy beach of the Cambrian period of the Paelozoic Era, the sandal print would have to be an incredible 500 million years old.
Dr. Clifford Burdick personally investigated William Meister’s find, and while digging in the same area where the rockhound had found the remarkable sandal print, he himself found a human track similar to the first one Meister discovered, evidently made by shoes or moccasins. Professors of the geological department of a leading university conceded that the tracks definitely looked human, but they could not accept their biological origins.
Dr. Burdick commented that the manlike tracks found at Antelope Springs, preserved in rock hundreds of feet below the present surface of the ground, may have been covered at or near the beginning of some great catastrophic, earth-shaking event that buried many forms of life all together, some marine and some non-marine.
“If these are verified as human tracks,” he said, “the discovery will have far-reaching repercussions throughout the scientific world, and especially for stratigraphers and palaeontologists. Cambrian fossils such as trilobites, are placed at the bottom of the Palaeozoic, some estimated 600 million years before man evolved, according to evolutionary geology. This evidence, if verified, will practically collapse the geologic column.”
In addition to the giant footprints of manlike bipedal creatures discovered throughout the southwestern United States, other indications that a much larger race inhabited North America in prehistoric times came with the discovery in Supai Canyon, Arizona, of a petroglyph depicting a mammoth attacking a man. This primitive work of art was found by Harold T. Wilkins, who determined that the beleaguered man must have been over ten feet tall, according to the perspective employed by the ancient artist. Amerindians in the vicinity stated that the drawings had been made by the “giants of long ago.”
The New York Times on December 2, 1930, carried an item that told of the discovery of the remains of an apparent race of giants who once lived at Sayopa, Sonora, a mining town 300 miles south of the Mexican border. A mining engineer, J. E. Coker, said that labourers clearing ranchland near the Yazui River “dug into an old cemetery where bodies of men, averaging eight feet in height, were found buried tier by tier. . . .”
On February 14, 1936″ The New York Times ran a piece datelined Managua, Nicaragua, which stated that the skeleton of a gigantic man, with the head missing, had been unearthed at El Boquin, on the Mico River, in the Chontales district. “The ribs are a yard long and four inches wide and the shin bone is too heavy for one man to carry. ‘Chontales’ is an Indian word, meaning ‘wild man.’
In its June 9, 1936 issue, The New York Times published an article item with a Miami, Florida dateline that told of human skeletons eight feet long imbedded in the sand of an uninhabited little island off Southern Florida. E. M. Miller, zoologist at the University of Miami, commented that the skulls were unusually thick, the jaws protruded, and the eye sockets were high in the head.
In his book emtitled Forbidden Land, Robert R. Lyman wrote of an unknown tribe of American giants who had the added distinction of having horns growing from their heads:
“At Tioga Point … a short distance from Sayre, in Bradford County (Pennsylvania]… they uncovered an Indian mound [and] found the bones of 68 men which were believed to have been buried about the year 1200. The average height of these men was seven feet, while many were much taller. On some of the skulls, two inches above the perfectly formed forehead, were protuberances of bone, evidently horns that had been there since birth. Some of the specimens were sent to the American Investigating Museum.
“. . . In December 1886, W. H. Scoville of Andrews Settlement discovered an Indian mound at Ellisburg. When opened, the skeleton of a man was found. It was close to eight feet in length.”
According to their oral tradition, the Delaware tribe once lived in the western United States. At some point in their history, they migrated eastward as far as the Mississippi River, where they were joined by the Iroquois Confederacy. Both groups of people were seeking land better suited to their rather cultured way of life, and they continued together on their eastward trek.
Scouts sent ahead learned of a nation that inhabited the land east of the Mississippi and who had built strong, walled cities. These people were known as the Talligewi or Allegewi, after whom the Allegheny River and Mountains are named. The Allegewi were considered taller than either the Iroquois or the Delaware, and the scouts saw a good many giants walking among them.
When the two migrating tribes asked permission to pass through the land of the Allegewi, it was denied. Bitter fighting broke out, which continued for a number of years. EventualIy, the superior numbers and the determination of the allies prevailed, and the Allegewi fled to the west.
The Allegewi next appear in the legends of the Sioux, whose tradition tells of a confrontation with a race of great stature. The Sioux, who were surely among the ablest of warriors, exterminated the Allegewi when the giants sought to settle in what is now Minnesota.
Is there any archaeological evidence to support these tribal legends and traditions?
Rising out of the earth in Ohio, Minnesota, Iowa, and other states are the huge Earthworks of the mysterious “moundbuilders.” The mounds scattered throughout the Midwest were apparently raised by the same unknown people, and the earthworks are extremely large.
Do giant mounds indicate giant people?
Enormous weapons, including a copper ax weighing 38 pounds, have been found in these mounds. It is difficult to imagine the average-sized Amerindian, as we first know him at the time of the European invasion, casually wielding a 38-pound axe.
However, outsized weapons and implements alone are not proof of a giant race, and neither are huge monuments. The former can be works of art, the latter could be objects of religious commitment. The best proof of a race of giants in North America– or anywhere else — would be the discovery of the skeletons of these people.
Two brothers living in Dresbach, Minnesota, in the process of enlarging their brick business, were forced to remove a number of large Indian mounds. In one of the huge earthenworks they discovered the bones of “men over eight feet tall.”
In La Crescent, Minnesota, not far from Dresbach, mound-diggers reportedly found large skillets and “bones of men of huge stature.”
Over in Chatfield, mounds were excavated, revealing six skeletons of enormous size.
Unusually large skeletons of seven people buried head down were discovered in Clearwater. The skulls in the latter find were said to have had receding foreheads, and teeth that were double all the way around.
Other discoveries in Minnesota included “men of more than ordinary size” in Moose Island Lake; several skeletons, one of “gigantic size” in Pine City; ten skeletons “of both sexes and of gigantic size” in Warren (buried with these particular specimens were horses, badgers, and dogs).
Could these huge skeletons of gigantic “indians” be all that remains of the last of a proud prehistoric race who defied the monster reptiles and built an extensive empire of walled cities throughout the Americas?
Dr. Clifford Burdick first began investigating “footprints in stone” in the early 1950s when the Natural Science Foundation of Los Angeles assigned him to go with four other members to examine the reported man-tracks found in strata contemporaneous with dinosaur prints in and around Glen Rose, Texas. The committee soon learned that men had been cutting dinosaur and human tracks out of the limestone of the Paluxy River bed near Glen Rose since at least 1938. A Mr. A. Berry gave them an affidavit which stated that in September of that year, he and other men found “many dinosaur tracks, several sabre-tooth tiger tracks, and three human tracks” in the river bed.
Dr. Burdick learned that Dr. Roland Bird, field explorer for the American Museum of Natural History of New York City, had also examined the Berry tracks. Describing them in the May 1939 edition of Natural History magazine, Bird admitted that he had never seen anything like the tracks, and assessed them as “perfect in every detail.” But since the man-like tracks measured 16 inches from toe to heel, Bird declared that they were too large to be human, although the barefoot tracks did show all the toes, insteps, and heels in the proper proportions. When Dr. Bird made a special field trip to the Paluxy River to examine the tracks in situ, he became less enthusiastic about the prints in association with dinosaur tracks, because “man did not live in the age of dinosaurs.”
Whatever species of creature made these tracks, it was definitely bipedal. The footprints all have about the same length of stride, which would be consistent with a man with a 16-inch foot. The shapes of the prints are more manlike than any other animal known to science.
If the tracks are accepted as being human, then scientists will be forced either to place man back in time to the Cretaceous period or to bring the dinosaur forward to the Pleistocene or Recent period.
In referring to the evidence of the Glen Rose tracks, Dr. Burdick states that the generally accepted theory of evolution would be dealt a lethal blow, because the geologic record of human footprints contemporaneous with dinosaur tracks “suggests that simple and complex types of life were coexistent in time past or during geologic ages. . . . This does not harmonize with the hypothesis that complex types of life evolved from lower or more simple forms. Evolution implies that through the geologic ages life has not only become more complex, but has increased in size. If evidence from the man-tracks can be used as a criterion, ancient man was much larger than modern man as an average. This harmonized with most fossil life which was larger than its modern counterpart. . . . On the whole, biological life has had to contend with unfavorable environment which has been a factor in its degeneration, rather than its evolution.”
For years, Frank X. Tolbert wrote about the alleged mantracks in the Paluxy River in his “Tolbert’s Texas” column in the Dallas Morning News. Consistently skeptical that the prints were made by humans, Tolbert maintained that the tracks had been made by giant sloths. But in his January 6, 1973 column, Tolbert reported “what may be the clearest of the so-called ‘giant men tracks’ yet discovered”– a footprint of “a huge humanoid” measuring 21 1/2 inches in length, 8 inches in width across the front of the foot, and 5 1/2 inches across the instep.
Dr. C. N. Dougherty of Glen Rose stated that near the footprint are also the deeply engraved prints of three-toed dinosaurs. “These men-tracks belong to the Mesozoic Era because the clearest man-track is exactly eight inches from a trachodon track and on the same layer of rock,” said Dr. Dougherty. “The trachodon tracks are as clear and distinct as the man-track. “
According to Dr. Dougherty: “When I discovered this trail of a giant man under the waterfall, I had a feeling that it was one of the most important discoveries since the Dead Sea Scrolls.”
The thing that most intrigued Tolbert is that the prints are each 21 1/2 inches in length, “And they indicate that these men who were contemporaries of the brontosaurus, if men they were, walked with a stride of seven feet.”
Some might conjecture that such giant humans might have been able to band together and put up a pretty good fight against any giant reptile.

Photos taken of ancient hieroglyphics on different visits by individuals to Egypt, distinctively show a military-looking helicopter, an aeroplane, a submarine, and even some kind of alien spacecraft. Photos which accompany this article, were further documented to have been taken in 1996 and 1997.
The glyphs suggest that Extraterrestrials have shown an interest and have demonstrated the capability to rule over humanity. The glyphs also suggest that similar technologies today, that apparently existed thousands of years ago, may have originated from a similar source. Indeed, Dr. Michael Salla has suggested the current existence of military-industrial-extraterrestrial complex that has access to “exotic technologies” which include time-travel. If these technologies existed thousands of years ago, wouldn’t time travel by a related group account for the re-introduction of the same technologies?
Retired NATO Commander, Rhodes Scholar, and four-star general Wes Clark — who made a late October 2003 entry in the 2004 U.S. Presidential race following a successful draft campaign — made comments in reference to “time travel” as an important area of research that was quite attainable. Perhaps according to scholarly testimony like Dr. Salla, and other researchers of UFO phenomenon, such technology has already been developed, this LINK
Bill Hobbs further records that Clark said on the U.S. Presidential campaign trial, that he thinks that time travel is possible and that it will be accomplished. And he strongly implied that as president, he would openly allocate federal money to develop it. LINK Indeed, if such an “exotic technology” was already developed, then the elites who presided over any such technology would be able to evaluate the American public’s reaction to such information.
Could time travelling manipulative extraterrestrials that presided over the destruction of previous human civilizations, use time travel as a means of selectively seeking to influence sentient races at different stages of the technological development of various planetary civilizations?
In 1848, one of numerous archaeological expeditions working in Egypt discovered strange hieroglyphs at the height of about ten metres right above the entrance to the Seti Temple in Abydos. The walls were apparently covered with the strange signs that greatly puzzled researchers. The only thing the researchers realized at once was that they had discovered some images of strange mechanisms that nobody ever saw before.
“The archaeological expedition carefully copied the mysterious signs on the temple walls, and the hieroglyphs gave rise to endless disputes and heated debates among Egyptologists. As a result, majority of Egyptologists arrived at a conclusion at that time that there were just strange objects drawn in different variations, ” documents the Russian newspaper Pravda. LINK
Researchers of the 19th century failed to understand what ancient Egyptians actually drew on the temple walls. Like any sensation the mysterious Abydos hieroglyphs were absolutely forgotten some time later.
In about 150 years, the respectable Arab newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat published several evocative photos taken in the Amon Ra Temple in Karnak. At that, the newspaper asked its readers whether they believed that ancient Egyptians knew about battle aviation. The photos showed an ancient artist(s) engraved a battle helicopter with a distinct rotor and a tail unit. Nearby, the artist depicted several other aircrafts astonishingly resembling contemporary supersonic fighters and heavy strategic bombers.
The Russian article from Pravda titled “Ancient Egyptians used helicopters and airplanes for battles?” documents that “After the thought provoking publication of the photos it became clear why Egyptologists of the 19th century could not tell what was depicted on the walls of the temple in Abydos.” LINK.
Indeed, the nineteenth century researchers did not know how helicopters and aircrafts look.
Well-known Egyptologist Alan Alford left to the Nile banks to study the Abydos mystery. The researcher studied the mysterious hieroglyphs and made sure that what seemed absolutely incredible was in fact quite real. Alford told journalists that ancient Egyptians had depicted a real helicopter model as if they made the engravings from life. LINK Some of the depictions by artists thousands of years ago, are still apparently unknown.
These photos were met with the usual attempts by operatives of a modern era, who are paid by the Establishment, and who operate in a cloak of secrecy, to spin an accompanying web of deceit and dis-information. LINK
These photos are further accompanied by archaeological findings in Egypt of alien skulls attributed to an oppressive apparent human-extraterrestrial hybrid race. Professor Zecharia Sitichin’s research further supports eyewitness accounts by indigenous and other peoples, about numerous skulls of human-extraterrestrial hybrid race that have been photographed.
Joel Mills in the process of producing the CD-ROM “The Secrets of Stargate.” sought to collect photographs of giant skulls of apparent human-extraterrestrial hybrid races. These skulls were later apparently censored from the producing of the CD-ROM. Notwithstanding this “these skulls are so numerous in the area of the Nasca desert in South America, that you can find small makeshift museums in the backyards of the locals.”
Mr. Mills believed that these alien skulls and related artefacts proved that original Stargate film (1994) of an interseller time teleportation mechanism could be not simply some sort of science fiction fantasy.
Wikpedia documents that the film and later developed television series was based upon the following storyline:
|“The United States civilian government holds the Stargate’s existence a secret, so story lines present no contradiction between the episode’s events and reality. In the story, many Earth mythologies are in fact based upon events involving aliens who visited or controlled Earth civilizations in the distant past.”Posing as gods, Manipulative Extraterrestrials were presented as enslaving the inhabitants of ancient Egypt, creating its culture and religion. These malevolent aliens were presented as using Stargates to move labourers from Earth to other habitable planets. The aliens were also depicted as being forced to flee Earth following a successful rebellion by the humans, and the Stargate was buried and forgotten until its rediscovery in Giza, Egypt, 1928.|
Adolf Hilter has been historically documented as being a member of the UFO oriented Thule society, before his rise to power. Nazi Germany was allegedly inspired from his contacts with representatives of alleged Great Pyramid inspiring Extraterrestrial “Aryan” civilizations. This has been documented in the article titled, “The Aliens of the Golden Dawn”. LINK
In the book entitled The Dawn of Magic by Louis Pauwells and Jacques Bergier first published in France under the title Le Matin des Magiciens 1960, Hitler was documented as having indicated: “The new man is living amongst us now! He is here!” exclaimed Hitler, triumphantly… I will tell you a secret. I have seen the new man. He is intrepid and cruel. I was afraid of him.” LINK
Did the same group of time-travelling Extraterrestrials that provide military technology that were drawn on the Egyptian glyphs, also seek to funnel technology to Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany so as to effectuate an agenda to run planet Earth as “Aryan” custodial gods, over the enslaving of humanity?
Local guides in Peru explained their church leaders feel the skulls of apparent ancient ruling castes of human-alien hybrids, are “the work of the devil”, and the offspring of the fallen angels in the Bible.
With this in mind, learned scholar and author John Lash in Metahistory.org documents ancient Gnostics as seeking to warn humanity about intelligent inorganic life possessing demonic consciousness that were presented in Gnostic cosmology to be Archons or “fallen angels”.
Findings prove that the Archonic rulers of these apparently technologically advanced societies, shared the common bond of huge skulls and brains that probably provided them with highly developed intellectual capabilities. This information has been allegedly shared by secret societies and religious leaders for hundreds of years. These pictures have been described by viewers as showing “proof of beings from another world” interacting with humans LINK
Egypt’s King Akhenaton and his daughters were allegedly proud of their “distinct features” (elongated skulls) and the true facts of this royal family are shrouded in controversy. LINK.
Some historians paid by the Establishment to create dis-information, point out that the giant skulls of this family are simply a deformity caused by inbreeding. Others discount this and claim that it is the art style of the Armana period. LINK.
Ignatius Donnelly in his book entitled Atlantis, The Antedeluvian World explores historical accounts of a Continent that existed in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean that sank into the sea. He documents that before it sank, the apparent Human-Manipulative Extraterrestrial hybrid rulers left for Egypt, Mexico and Peru and became rulers of newfound apocalyptical empires with Great Pyramids, that were based around oppressive religious-militaristic cults. He found information about elongated apparent alien-human hybrid skulls hidden in the Library of Congress in Washington. Perhaps “the sinking” of Atlantis had something to do with a military attempt of these alien-human hybrids to seize and take control of Atlantis as an allegedly highly advanced human civilization?
When President Alberto Fujimori took power in Peru he had decided to allow the skulls to be photographed. The Peruvian government had indicated to a researcher that “these unusual skulls could be found in many museums in Peru and excavations were uncovering them even now near the Nasca Plateau.” LINK.
Brad Steiger’s book entitled Worlds Before our Own presented evidence that previous earth civilizations were destroyed possibly by very sophisticated nuclear weapons, in a catastrophic war on Earth of intergalactic proportions, involving different alien civilizations . If this is the case, then these glyps corroborate Dr. Salla’s research of a military-industrial-extraterrestrial complex that once again may be taking humanity into a path of planetary destruction for whatever alien agenda might exist.
Dr. Salla in “A Report on the Motivations and Activities of Extraterrestrial Races – A Typology of the Most Significant Extraterrestrial Races Interacting with Humanity” in Exopolitics, revised January 1, 2005 documents that Clifford Stone, a retired U.S. army Sergeant who served in the U.S. Army for 22 years and participated in covert operations to retrieve crashed extraterrestrial ships and extraterrestrial biological entities (EBE’s), revealed there were a total of 57 extraterrestrial races known by UFO and Extraterrestrial dis-information operatives. LINK.
Dr. Salla further reveals that apparent Manipulative Extraterrestrials (in contrast with socially responsible and Ethical Extraterrestrials) have sought to introduce military technologies through ego and greed driven elites, that have literally sold their soul to gain access to these technologies. Dr. Salla indicates that Manipulative Extraterrestrials having exploited short-sighted human elites, have instigated a “range of systemic global problems.”
Indeed, if there are, for example, baseball and football players as well as track and field stars, who are willing to sell out their personal health by taking steroids in order to get more money and in their apparent view, “more glory, just think how many corrupt human politicians, in turn, would be correspondingly willing to similarly sell out their soul to manipulative aliens in their quest for their sought prize of short-sighted planetary power.
Dr. Salla’s further documents alleged interactions between Manipulative extraterrestrial races and empire-driven human elites as having “reached agreements with, and even collaborated in a number of joint projects.”
Gary McKinnon in a Wired Magazine article titled “‘UFO Hacker’ Tells What He Found” indicates that, “I also got access to Excel spreadsheets. One was titled “Non-Terrestrial Officers.” Mr. McKinnon uncovered what he indicated appeared to be orbiting alien spacecraft, that would then be systematically airbrushed out of high resolution satellite images.
Could nuclear weapons itself, which human elites now seek to threaten Iran toward a global nuclear holocaust, also have been introduced through human elite collaborations with manipulative alien toward a global conquest agenda?
Secrets of the Lost Races writer Rene Noorbergen reveals scientific research on ancient Pyramids that have been in turn linked to Human-Extraterrestrial hybrid races, have also demonstrated traces of nuclear radiation consistent with a pre-historic nuclear war.
In South America the Brazilian ruins of Sete Ciddaes are enormously revealing. Author Noorbergen in Secrets of the Lost Races writes of “ruins melted by apocalyptic energies…”! Elsewhere, in Mesopotamia sizeable ziggurats — a form of early pyramid — have been found melted to their base in a vitrified mass! LINK.
In the article “Nuclear Wars in Antiquity”, by author Harry Hinde further documents the following:
“In the Arabian desert blackened stones litter the sands over a wide area, showing signs of having been subjected to intense radiation. In Israel the location of the Dead Sea and it’s mysterious connection with Sodom and Gomorrah bears evidence of an amazing focus of heat that is thought to have gouged out the entire area in a massive explosion. Vitrified rock created under intense pressure, is a frequent discovery, and in 1952 archaeologists discovered a vitrified area of sand that stretched out over hundreds of square feet! Apparently deposits like this are similar to those left behind at the White Sands atomic testing site in America.” LINK.
“In fact wherever we look in the world the baffling enigma of vitrified ruins challenges our intellect! From Peru, to Scotland and Scandinavia; to the plateau’s of China and India, this indelible evidence attests to some undeniably violent act.” LINK.
Erich von Daniken’s Chariots of the Gods? has presented theories of ancient astronauts constituting a possible intergalactic alien invasion force, landing on Earth. Von Daniken links Great Pyramid like structures on Mars to similar looking Great Pyramids on Earth, as the alleged basis of fascistic alien colonies on Earth. The well-documented humanoid face on Mars — that has apparently been also subsequently subjected to elite-directed air-brushing toward an alien disinformation campaign — has also been cited as evidence of malevolent alien migrations to Earth.
Rene Noorbergen further documents charred ruins to be found between the River Ganges in India and the mountains of Rajamahal. “The walls have been glazed, corroded, and split by tremendous heat. Within several of the buildings that remain standing even the surfaces of the stone furniture have been vitrified: melted then crystallised. No natural burning flame or volcanic eruption could have produced heat intense enough to cause this phenomenon. Only the heat released through atomic energy could have done this damage.” Also in this same region a human body was discovered with a radioactivity “which was fifty times above the normal level”. LINK
Mr Lash is Metahistory.org documents, that Gnostic research uncovered intrusion by intelligent inorganic Manipulative Extraterrestrials that are native to other planets in Earth’s solar system that sought to instigate violence among humans in a “divide, conquest and rule” agenda. Manipulative aliens through opportunistic time periods of terrestrial conflicts on Earth, would likely find many zealot human elites willing to do anything in order to acquire military technology to destroy each other for their own conquest agenda with “hybrid” confederates. Mr. Lash documents the extent to which alien-inspired organized religion has provided a context for sowing bigotries, and an ensuing culture of violence, that can “ripen” into the kind of militarism which now shapes American foreign policy.
The so-called “War on Terror” could be in fact an Manipulative Extraterrestrial ruse for an evolving alien agenda, against human rights, spiritual free will, and sovereignty. Appreciating Manipulative Extraterrestrial intrusion on the development of human civilization could very well illuminate such catastrophes from the Holocaust against the Jews, the genocide in Rwanda where human elites turned their back on, and on-goings acts of oppression and barbarity on our planet.
Mr. Lash cites Gnostics as having illuminated that individuals who seek to appreciate Manipulative Extraterrestrial infiltration of Earthbound human society must introspectively come to grips with what it means to be human. After doing that through a process of critical inner spiritual reflection (free of externally imposed alien inspired organized religious dogma) individuals can readily be able to also detect Manipulative Extraterrestrial infiltration.
Adult human beings can observe the human spirit in its rawest form as being manifested in the newborn infant that smiles and that seeks to reach out to other human beings in a spirit of empathy, free of bigotry and the violence, that has been conditioned through alien-inspired organized religions.
Extraterrestrial infiltration of humanity is evident among subsequent development of certain constituencies of human beings who are driven by exploitation, greed, and violence, and who then seek to oppressively lash out at other human beings to perpetuate their alien-induced exploitation agenda.
Brad Steiger suggests that humans must learn the mistakes committed in the past in an apparent previous cycle(s) on nuclear and general apocalyptical destruction, in order to avoid humanity being once again manipulated into an elite-inspired agenda of exploitation, oppression, and destruction.
Numerous evidence of Pre-Historic Nuclear War exists: Columns of Smoke Rose as if from a Mighty Furnace
by Brad Steiger
“Then the Lord rained down fire and tar from heaven upon Sodom and Gomorrah, and utterly destroyed them….” Genesis 19:24.
My previous article in The Canadian , in which I reflected upon my book Worlds Before Our Own, provoked dozens of inquiries from readers. LINK Some stated that one of the cable channels — some thought it was the History Channel; others, Discovery; still others, National Geographic — had presented “proof” that the “fused green glass” to be found in various areas had been created by meteoric air blasts rather than prehistoric nuclear wars.
I remain open to many theories of Earth‘s prehistory. One of those individuals prompted to write to me, who had the advantage of having actually read Worlds Before Our Own, stated that I present “in a clear and lucid style, information concerning anomalous archeological finds without the hyperbole usually associated with this type of material.”
While patches of “fused green glass” may in certain instances have been caused by air blasts from meteors, I wonder if such a natural phenomenon could have created all twenty-eight fields of blackened and shattered stones that cover as many as 7000 miles each in western Arabia. The stones are densely grouped, as if they might be the remains of cities, sharp-edged, and burned black. Experts have decreed that they are not volcanic in origin, but appear to date from the period when Arabia was thought to be a lush and fruitful land that suddenly became scorched into an instant desert.
What we know today as the Sahara Desert was once a tropical region of heavy vegetation, abundant rainfall, and several large rivers. Scientists have discovered areas of the desert in which soils which once knew the cultivated influence of plow and farmer are now covered by a thin layer of sand. Researchers have also found an enormous reservoir of water below the parched desert area. The source of such a large deposit of water could only have been the heavy rains from the period of time before a fiery devastation consumed the lush vegetation of the area.
On December 25, 2007, it was confirmed by a French scientist that excavations at the area of Khamis Bani Sa’ad in Tehema district of Hodeidah province have yielded over a thousand rare archaeological pieces dating back to 300,000 B.C.E. Before a dramatic climate change, the inhabitants at that time had been fishermen and had domesticated a number of animals no longer to be found in the region, including a species of horse currently found only in Middle Asia.
The Red Chinese have conducted atomic tests near Lob Nor Lake in the Gobi Desert, which have left large patches of the area covered with vitreous sand. But the Gobi has a number of other areas of glassy sand which have been known for thousands of years.
Albion W. Hart, one of the first engineers to graduate from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was assigned a project in the interior of Africa. While he and his men were traveling to an almost inaccessible region, they had first to cross a great expanse of desert. At the time, he was puzzled and quite unable to explain a large area of greenish glass which covered the sands as far as he could see.
“Later on during his life,” wrote Margarethe Casson in Rocks and Minerals (No. 396, 1972), “he passed by the White Sands area after the first atomic explosion there, and he recognized the same type of silica fusion which he had seen fifty years earlier in the African desert.”
In 1947, in the Euphrates valley of southern Iraq, where certain traditions place the Garden of Eden and where the ancient inhabitants of Sumer encountered the man-god Ea, exploratory digging unearthed a layer of fused, green glass. Archaeologists could not restrain themselves from noting the resemblance that the several-thousand-year-old fused glass bore to the desert floor at White Sands, New Mexico, after the first nuclear blasts in modem times had melted sand and rock.
In the United States, the Mohave Desert has large circular or polygonal areas that are coated with a hard substance very much like opaque glass.
While exploring Death Valley in 1850, William Walker claimed to have come upon the ruins of an ancient city. An end of the large building within the rubble had had its stones melted and vitrified.
Walker went on to state that the entire region between the Gila and St. John rivers was spotted with ruins. In each of the ancient settlements he had found evidence that they had been burned out by fire intense enough to have liquefied rock. Paving blocks and stone houses had been split with huge cracks, as if seared by some gigantic cleaver of fire.
Perhaps even more than the large areas of fused green glass, I am intrigued by the evidence of vitrified cities and forts, such as those discovered by Walker.
There are ancient hill forts and towers in Scotland, Ireland, and England in which the stoneworks have become calcined because of the great heat that had been applied. There is no way that lightning could have caused such effects.
Other hill forts from the Lofoten Islands off northern Norway to the Canary Islands off northwest Africa have become “fused forts.” Erich A. von Fange comments that the “piled boulders of their circular walls have been turned to glass… by some intense heat.”
Catal Huyukin in north-central Turkey, thought to be one of the oldest cities in the world, appears, according to archaeological evidence, to have been fully civilized and then, suddenly, to have died out. Archaeologists were astonished to find thick layers of burned brick at one of the levels, called VIa. The blocks had been fused together by such intense heat that the effects had penetrated to a depth more than a meter below the level of the floors, where it carbonized the earth, the skeletal remains of the dead, and the burial gifts that had been interred with them. All bacterial decay had been halted by the tremendous heat.
When a large ziggurat in Babylonia was excavated, it presented the appearance of having been struck by a terrible fire that had split it down to its foundation. In other parts of the ruins, large sections of brickwork had been scorched into a vitrified state. Several masses of brickwork had been rendered into a completely molten state. Even large boulders found near the ruins had been vitrified.
The royal buildings at the north Syrian site known as Alalakh or Atchana had been so completely burned that the very core of the thick walls were filled with bright red, crumbling mud-bricks. The mud and lime wall plaster had been vitrified, and basalt wall slabs had, in some areas, actually melted.
Between India’s Ganges River and the Rajmahal Hills are scorched ruins which contain large masses of stone that have been fused and hollowed. Certain travelers who have ventured to the heart of the Indian forests have reported ruins of cities in which the walls have become huge slabs of crystal, due to some intense heat.
The ruins of the Seven Cities, located near the equator in the Province of Piaui, Brazil, appear to be the scene of a monstrous chaos. Since no geological explanation has yet been construed to fit the evidence before the archaeologists, certain of those who have investigated the site have said that the manner in which the stones have been dried out, destroyed, and melted provokes images of Sodom and Gomorrah.
French researchers discovered the evidence of prehistoric spontaneous nuclear reaction at the Oklo mine, Pierrelatte, in Gabon, Africa. Scientists found that the ore of this mine contained abnormally low proportions of U235 such as found only in depleted uranium fuel taken from atomic reactors. According to those who examined the mine, the ore also contained four rare elements in forms similar to those found in depleted uranium.
Although the modern world did not experience atomic power until the 1940s, there is an astonishing amount of evidence that nuclear effects may have occurred in prehistoric times leaving behind sand melted into glass in certain desert areas, hill forts with vitrified portions of stone walls, of the remains of ancient cities that had been destroyed by what appeared to have been extreme heat-far beyond that which could have been scorched by the torches of primitive armies. In each instance, the trained and experienced archaeologists who encountered such anomalous finds have stressed the point that none of these catastrophes had been caused by volcanoes, by lightning, by crashing comets, or by conflagrations set by humankind.
Archaeological Establishment covers-up Dinosaur-like humanoids with sophisticated technological capabilities
by Brad Steiger
An enigma with which I dealt extensively in Worlds Before Our Own has to do with what appear to be humanoid footprints which are found widely scattered in the geologic strata suggestive of a quarter of a billion years ago. This “What’s-it That Walked Like a Human” left shoe prints, sandal prints, and barefoot prints on sands of time that have long since hardened into rock. An early ancestor of our own species is supposed to have evolved only in the late Tertiary period and is therefore only about one million years old, but fossilized humanlike footprints have been found in rocks from the Carboniferous period to the Cambrian period, thus offering mute, but dramatic, testimony that some bipedal creatures were walking about from 250 million to 500 million years ago.
The fossil tracks of both bare and shod feet (of a decidedly humanoid impression) have been found in sites ranging from Virginia and Pennsylvania, through Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Utah, Oklahoma, and Texas. The prints give every evidence of having been made by human feet at a time when the rocks were soft mud or pliant sand.
Although the discovery of these footprints in the stones of time are hardly rare or recent occurrences, geologists, archaeologists, and anthropologists, by and large refuse to accept such fossil evidence at face value, because to do so would be to acknowledge that humans or some other bipedal humanoid or hominid creature lived in the earliest years of hypothetical evolutionary history.
This bipedal creature with humanlike stride, presents a riddle which has scientists scratching their heads. By any stretch of the evolutionary timeline, the footprints simply could not have been made by humans.
These footprints, shoeprints, and sandal prints were made more than 250 million years ago. That is a great deal of time for evolutionary trial and error. If our own species has evolved in a little over a million years, there has certainly been more than enough time to have had more than Creation Story on this planet.
If an intelligent species of amphibian had evolved, they would, indeed, have been remarkably effective creatures. They could have the best of two worlds, land and sea. They could hibernate for long periods of time, whenever necessary; and, of course, they would be naturally long-lived and might well have survived into the Age of Reptiles, thereby becoming responsible for those mysterious footprints in the same strata as the dinosaur tracks.
In the early 1980s, Dale Russell and Ron Seguin of Canada’s National Museum of Natural Sciences at Ottawa, created an imaginative model of a humanoid dinosaur. The February 1982 issue of Discover told how Russell’s and Seguin’s project had begun as a life-sized reconstruction of Stenonychosaurus inequalis, a small, meat-eating dinosaur that had lived near the close of the Age of Reptiles. Russell and Seguin decided to take the exercise a few steps farther. Using Stenonychosaurus as the model, they fashioned a creature that might have evolved, rather than dying out with the rest of the dinosaurs, sixty-five million years ago.
The result was a strikingly manlike four-and-a-half-foot creature that Russell called a “dinosauroid.” It has a large brain, green skin, and yellow, reptilian eyes, and is said by its creators to be based on scientific speculation, not pure fantasy.
Nature has a way of filling unoccupied ecological niches with whatever evolutionary lines are available, and Russell reasons that if the mammals had not been around to evolve into intelligent beings through the primate line, the reptiles might have done it instead.
“There is a trend in evolution toward increasing brain size,” Russell said, and the trend includes dinosaurs as well as mammals. Stenonychosaurus had a good start, Russell believes, because it had a relatively large brain and eyes with overlapping visual fields. It also walked on two legs, and it may have had a partially opposable “thumb” on its three-clawed hand.
If we entertain my thesis that there has been more than enough time on this planet for intelligent amphibians or reptiles to evolve then it was those entities who were responsible for all those footprints and shoe prints in strata indicative of 250 million years old and older. And perhaps it was also they who evolved into the highly advanced prehistoric cultures and civilizations that created a science capable of turning desert sand into patches of fused green glass or of vitrifying hill forts and stone walls. They may have developed nuclear power or some other deadly abuse of natural energy that could destroy ancient cities by what appeared to have been extreme heat–far beyond that which could have been scorched by the torches of primitive armies or caused by volcanoes, by lightning, or by crashing comets.
The old traditions of nearly every culture speak of a war between the forces of light and darkness which raged in humankind’s prehistory. Whether such a conflict occurred in the destruction of that world before our own that we remember in our species’ collective unconscious as some ideal civilization such as Atlantis or whether the struggle took place between rival forces, there exists awesome evidence throughout our planet that someone was exercising power of formidable energy.
It has seemed to me for years now that many of the UFO occupants that have been reported by contactees or abductees are reptilian or amphibian humanoids. Beginning in the 1960s, I participated in the hypnotic regression of a number of men and women who claimed to have been abducted for brief periods of time by crew members from UFOs. These contactees claimed to have been given some kind of medical examination; and in some instances, we were able to observe peculiar punctures and markings in their flesh.
From 1966 to the present day, I have interviewed large numbers of witnesses who claimed to have seen UFO occupants in the vicinity of mysterious craft that had been set down in pastures, meadows, and forest lands. These men and women said that they had been able to get a good look at the entities, who were often engaged in such tasks as digging in the soil, clipping leaves from bushes, or taking samples of water.
In the greatest number of these encounters, the entities being observed were described as standing about five feet tall and dressed in one-piece, tight-fitting jumpsuits.
Their skin was gray or grayish green, and hairless.
Their faces were dominated by large eyes, very often with snakelike, slit pupils.
They had no discernable lips, just straight lines for mouths. They seldom were described as having noses, just little snubs if at all; but usually the witness saw only nostrils nearly flush against the smooth face.
Sometimes a percipient mentioned pointed ears, but on many occasions commented on the absence of noticeable ears on the large, round head. And, repeatedly, the witnesses described an insignia of a flying serpent on a shoulder patch, a badge, a medallion, or a helmet.
Almost without exception, those men and women who have encountered entities associated with UFOs have said that the sounds the entities made were suggestive of whistles, humming, chirps, musical notes — all uttered in a birdlike, singsong manner.
Interestingly, regarding the question of language, paleontologist Dale Russell in the May 1982 edition of Omni Magazine theorized that the sounds that the “dinosaur man” would make would be “avian rather than mammalian… Their voices would be more birdlike than grunting.”
While many researchers have agreed with me that the entities associated with the UFO mystery seem reptilian or amphibian in nature, the majority of them attribute these traits to visitors from an extraterrestrial world. While this must be considered a viable hypothesis, as an alternative scenario is that we need not travel beyond our own planet to discover such intelligent sentient beings.
