Have you ever contemplated why there appears to be a substantive lack of political will to redress worsening global problems in general? Perhaps you might have also thought of the origins of very specific tragedies in the world. Why, for example, did United Nations agencies, various national governments, and large private organizations turn their back of the mass human suffering of the Rwandan genocide?
Why is history being allowed to repeat itself in Darfur, Sudan, and in diverse parts of Africa where rape has become a specifically organized part of contrived tribal warfare in Africa?
What is the Iraq War all about anyway? If the target is in fact, terrorists, why are supposedly freedom-fighting U.S. backed militaries using Depleted Uranium dirty bombs? These documented “dirty bombs” have caused hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, and tens of thousands of U.S. military personnel to die from cancer and other medical complications. Over one million innocent Iraqi civilians have already died as a result of a U.S. military elite endorsed assault.
Why is poverty globally, and in specific cities from Victoria, Regina, Vancouver and Toronto in Canada, to places in other countries like in St. Louis, Washington D.C., Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles in the U.S., to many other cities like London in the United Kingdom, to Soweto in South Africa, now worsening as elites seem to get more and more commercially prosperous?
Why is the vital natural heritage of our planet Earth being apparently wilfully destroyed, and in the process, ruining the quality of living of billions of people on Earth?
It is apparent that Eugenics is the common thread of premeditated instigation and wilful negligence that is associated with much of Earth’s current problems.
Practitioners and promoters of the Eugenics “super religion”, believe… [CONTINUED.. see comment below]

Adapted from Dr. Michael Salla
There are many challenges that global humanity must face in responding to the possible intervention of Extraterrestrials (ETs) in human affairs if humanity is to maintain its sovereignty and independence. Foremost among these is identifying the difference between ET races which directly intervene in human affairs without explicit authorization or permission from humans on an individual and/or collective basis, and those races which adopt a non-interventionary role when such permission is not forthcoming. While ascribing moral categories solely on the interventionary policy of ET races is a not a sufficient condition for understanding the various agenda of ETs, it does serve as a necessary condition for helping distinguish between ET races who have a long term goal of promoting human sovereignty and independence, and those ET’s whose goal is undermining these fundamental principles.
As a general rule, ET races that directly intervene in human affairs, without explicit permission to do so from individuals and governments, do not serve humanity’s best interests in terms of human sovereignty and independence. Conversely, a second rule is that those alien races that only intervene in human affairs when explicit permission has been given, behave in a way that is more consistent with humanity’s best interest in terms of human sovereignty and independence
Keeping the above general rules in mind, it is possible to now understand the primary dangers that confront humanity in maintaining its sovereignty and independence in responding to the intervention of technologically advanced ET races. The first ‘danger’ is the perception fostered by those that believe that humanity’s best hope in maintaining sovereignty and independence is through a rapid technological revolution in the military sector. The second ‘danger’ is the belief that ET’s that intervene during a possible global environmental, economic and/or political disaster are the saviors of humanity and play a role that can be explained in Christian religious terminology as the “Second Coming”.
The crux of both of these dangers is that global humanity on an individual and collective basis ‘gives its sovereignty and independence’ away to those that control military technology used as the prime instrument of individual or collective defence; or to so-called “benevolent” ETs who intervene in time to save global humanity from some impending global crisis engineered by corrupt or militaristic human/ET groups.
The Danger Posed by a Military Response to ET Intervention
The first danger arises from the strength of the military industrial complex in countries such as the U.S. and the effect on the psychological disposition of Americans to accept the use of military force in resolving political problems. President Dwight Eisenhower who presided during the formation of many clandestine U.S. government organizations that were set up to respond to increasing incidents of ET intervention in human affairs, became alarmed at the growing power of these organizations and the symbiotic relationship between large US corporations and the military.
In his famous departing speech of 1961, he directly mentioned the power of the military industrial complex and the need to be wary of the intertwined relationships between corporations and the military in producing advanced military technology. The underlying idea here is that such organizations foster a militarized response to the ET presence and incidents of ET intervention through producing advanced weaponry based on ‘captured’ or ‘traded’ ET technology that can respond to the ET presence in a way that preserves humanity’s sovereignty and independence.
Leading policy makers in the various organizations that support a military response to ET intervention wish to avoid a repeat of the calamity that befell the indigenous civilization of the America’s which were destroyed by the technologically more advanced, though numerically small, Spanish invasion. Those supporting a military response to the ET presence generally and ET intervention in particular, have in mind a policy similar to the Meiji restoration of Japan where in a short few decades Japan responded to the presence of more technologically advanced European nations by rapidly industrializing its military, technological and political sectors to the extent that it transformed itself from a weak feudal state characterized by competing warlords to a centralized dynastic kingdom under the Meiji Emperors.
The Meiji Restoration led to the most remarkable industrialization effort ever witnessed and was so rapid and far reaching in scope that Japan was in a few short decades able to defeat a major European power, Russia, during the 1905 Russo-Japanese war. More stupendous was Japan’s military performance during the Second World War where it came very close to defeating the U.S. and its allied forces in the Pacific. What distinguished the Meiji Restoration as an example of a less developed civilization responding to the presence and intervention of a more ‘advanced’ civilization was the ability of the Japanese to quickly unify in response to the threat posed by colonial Europe and the U.S., as opposed to the disunity that characterized the indigenous kingdoms of the Americas that were easily picked off one at a time by the cunning Spanish Conquistadores.
The military industrial complex and the clandestine organizations in the US and Europe responding to the U.S. presence clearly have the Japanese model in mind as evidenced by the whistleblower testimonies of Colonel Corso and others who participated in clandestine reverse engineering programs not disclosed to the general public and elected public officials. Clandestine government organizations are going to great efforts to ‘modernize’ their weapon systems through trade, treaties and even military confrontation with ET races in the hope that global humanity through its strongest nations will be able to deal with the ET presence through a position of strength. At the global political level, there are efforts to centralize the use of military force through global multilateral institutions such as the UN (Iraq 1991) or NATO (Kosovo 1999); or a multilateral action led the US with the support of a ‘coalition of the willing’ (Iraq 2003).
At first sight, a global policy based on the Meiji restoration is very understandable and even praiseworthy in the means by which it sets out to preserve humanity’s sovereignty and independence by a rapid program of military modernization and global political unity. There are nevertheless dangers in following the Meiji model of transformation in responding to the interventionary activities of more technologically advanced ET races. One is the lesson provided by history itself where Japan was defeated in the Second World War as a result of an overconfidence possessed by its still immature political leaders who were captivated by the success of militarism in transforming Japan. Militarists grew in power and asserted Japanese power in a way that broke the tacit diplomatic boundaries essential for preserving regional peace.
This is currently being evidenced in the U.S. where recent military successes in Afghanistan and Iraq have elevated the influence of political leaders who espouse a doctrine of military intervention as a means of resolving U.S. foreign policy problems that is not that dissimilar to Japanese militarism early in the twentieth century. There is a likely hood that the clandestine government organizations representing global humanity — still relatively immature in dealing with interplanetary affairs between ET species — may similarly overstep tacit boundaries that exist which prevent an overt and large scale extraterrestrial intervention in human affairs.
The danger of clandestine government organizations taking global humanity down a path of militarism in responding to the ET presence is very real since non-disclosure of the ET presence to the general public and elected political leaders means that only a select few are privy to knowledge of all aspects of the ET presence and interventions, and only this privileged minority participate in the policy making process. There is the testimony of former participants in clandestine government activities such as Preston Nichols , Stewart Swerdlow, Al Bielak, Peter Moon, Stephen Schwartz, and others that secret interplanetary wars are already being conducted by Earth based clandestine organizations using advanced military technology.
This suggests that the policy making process concerning how to respond to the ET intervention and the use of ET technology is dominated by those in the military-intelligence sector of national governments who have a predisposition toward the utility of a military-technological response. The restricted policy making process that takes place in organizations embedded in elite military and security organizations conspires to exclude seasoned, and more accountable diplomats and elected representatives, that would be more cautious in their optimism over the utility of military technology in negotiating with and responding to technologically sophisticated, but lower dimensional ET races.
In summary, the continued non-disclosure of the ET presence, and the focus on an increasing militarized response to ET interventions, reflected in part by increased militarism in international affairs as evidenced most recently by U.S. intervention in Iraq, constitutes a great danger to human sovereignty and independence since it may lead to a kind of interplanetary war [that former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer has sought to warn humanity about] where defeat would totally erase humanity’s sovereignty and independence. As Japan might testify in response to its own loss of sovereignty and independence after rapid advances in military technology led to the growth of Japanese militarism and a disastrous confrontation with the U.S., a militarized response to a technologically advanced civilization carries many inherent perils.
The Danger of a staged Second Coming orchestrated though clerical elites
The second danger is the pervasive belief by hundreds of millions if not billions of people around the planet that there is to be an “End Times'”where there will be a ‘Second Coming’ involving the return of a spiritually advanced being such as Christ for Christians; Messiah for Jews, Isa for Muslims; Kalki for the Hindus; Maitreya for Buddhists, etc. Such a being would presumably save humanity from an impending global catastrophe engineered by corrupt individuals/institutions, or a disastrous military conflict with hostile ET races, and usher in a golden age of peace and harmony.
The belief in a ‘Second Coming’ is so deeply embedded in the collective psyche of humanity that it could be well described as an archetype of the ‘collective unconscious’. It can be predicted that such an archetype would be exploited by ET races wishing to remove humanity’s sovereignty and independence in a much more covert way than overt ET intervention. This indeed would parallel the Spanish Conquest of the Americas where conquistadores such as Hernando Cortes exploited the religious belief system of the native Americans and persuaded them that the Spaniards were the ‘returning gods’ [John Lash in metahistory.org documents that the ancient Gnostics viewed specifically Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as the “Doctrine of the Aliens” (Manipulative/Regressive)].
A number of controversial book authors such as Al Bielak, Preston Nichols, Stewart Swerdlow, Peter Moon and others claim to have been part of a clandestine military project dubbed the ‘Montauk Project’ which used advanced technology such as genetic cloning, holographic projection and time-travel. Such technology was said to have been given to clandestine government organizations by various ET races. If such reports are accurate, then it would be possible and even likely that the pervasive belief in a ‘Second Coming’ could be exploited by ET groups that freely intervene in human affairs and who allegedly enter into agreements with clandestine government organizations.
Using time travel technology, such ET races could use DNA samples from the ‘historic Jesus’ or religious relics such as the Shroud of Turin, to clone a hybrid ET/human being that could be passed off as the returning Christ. Using holographic projection around key areas of the globe, such a figure could appear in the miraculous manner expected by religious adherents. As the result of DNA testing and a host of miracles manufactured either by ET holographic technology or by the ET/human hybrid himself, such a being and his supporters could persuade a sufficient number of believers from the different religious traditions that he was the returning Christ/Messiah/Isa/Kalki/Maitreya.
It could be expected that such a being could bring about peace in perennial conflicts such as Israel/Palestine, Kashmir, and elsewhere, by the force of his charismatic personality, miraculous deeds, and overt support by ET groups. If such a ‘Second Coming’ were to happen, this new ‘Christ’ would gain enormous global authority. The religious authority of such a hybrid being and the associated ET races supporting such a ‘returned Christ’ would pose a direct threat to the sovereignty and independence of global humanity.
Traditional religious institutions such as the Catholic Church would receive a huge boost in authority and relevance as they would predictably form a close relationship with this returned ‘Christ’ and the ET races supporting him. There is evidence already that the Catholic Church is undergoing a significant doctrinal change where senior clerics including the Pope himself now support the ‘possible “benevolence” of ET races and their abilities to faithfully express the message of Christ. The final result would be a new religious dispensation where humanity is indoctrinated with the authority of a new global religion that integrates the ‘Second Coming’ with overt ET intervention. The release to the general public of advanced ET technology that resolves global environmental problems, and the co-opting of amenable religious authorities would be powerful markers of the ‘new dispensation’.
The ‘opponents’ of this new religious dispensation and the global authority of an ET manufactured Christ/Messiah would be those that deny the authority of such a being and the global institutions and processes that are created in the wake of his authority and charisma. There would be many from traditional religious belief systems that would deny such a new dispensation as has been historically the pattern when widespread religious reform has occurred. Historically, however, such opposition weakens as religious adherents slowly convert to the new dispensation. The strongest opposition to a staged Second Coming heralding a new religious dispensation would be those in the ‘New Age’ and ‘New Thought’ movements who typically champion more autonomous or sovereign individual decision making without appeal to external religious authority.
Popular New Age channels/leaders such as Lee Carroll, Geoffrey Hope, Drunvalo Melchizedek, Jasmuheen, Barbara Marciniak and leaders in the New Thought movements found in churches such as Unity, Universal Unitarian, Christian Science, and others, all focus on the sovereignty and independence of each individual as they are able to give full expression to their own inner divinity and authority. Adherents of these New Age and New Thought ideals are very dismissive of universal claims of religious authority, and while a staged Second Coming may hold some initial appeal with its connection to various ET races and the “historic Jesus”, the religious dimension associated with it would be eventually opposed.
A growing religious/spiritual conflict between the believers in the so-called “Returned Christ”, and ‘unbelievers’ in the ‘New Age’ and ‘New Thought’ movements and dissenting religious groups would therefore emerge. A wave of political repression could be launched in democratic nations where adherents in the New Dispensation confront and violate the rights of those opposed. Adherents of New Age/New Thought would be either repressed or marginalized ensuring the rapid spread of a new ET inspired global religion which places at the pinnacle of global authority an ET hybrid claiming to be the “returned Christ” whose DNA would match the “historical Jesus”.
Conclusion: Preserving Human Sovereignty and Independence
Global humanity has a rapid learning curve ahead of it, if humanity is to navigate the challenges posed by ET intervention to human sovereignty and independence. Thankfully, there are genuinely< benevolent ET races assisting humanity in its evolution into a race of sovereign and independent beings capable of stewardship of planet Earth and her rich resources. These ET races, however, follow a policy of non-intervention in human affairs which distinguishes them from less or non-spiritually evolved ET races who have other priorities than the evolution of global humanity.
The key for global humanity navigating these present and future dangers is to be alert to belief systems that allow the possibility of interventionist ET’s subverting human sovereignty and independence. Put in its simplest terms, the prescription for responding adequately to ET intervention in human affairs is that individuals should not give their power away to others claiming to hold the means to save humanity either through technological means or a new religious belief system proclaiming a new saviour.
Each individual needs to develop in a fashion suitable to their own temperament and spiritual sensibility, that leads to a reconnection to a part of themselves, their ‘higher self’, ‘soul’, ‘spirit’, etc., toward Human Development. Given the present focus of much of global humanity in dealing with the challenging material conditions that confront individuals in terms of shrinking labour markets, erosion of state welfare, and threats posed by global terrorism, this will be a great challenge to many who have been forced into mental slavery in associated with the pursuit of greed that is associated with global capitalism.
The preservation of human sovereignty and independence lies in humanity affirming its free will as sentient beings in the universe, that are connected with each other socially, and spiritually, in relation to a context of Human Development, and with Nature.
Placing faith in military technology as a response to ET intervention, and/or a new religious authority/dispensation will play into the hands of ET races which desire to undermine human sovereignty and independence. ET intervention in human affairs has been occurring for at least the last 50 years according to numerous testimonies from former government/military officials in various clandestine organizations. There is evidence from archeological, historical and religious sources that cycles from overt to covert ET intervention have occurred for many thousands of years. What distinguishes our modern era is that ET intervention has largely been covert as a result of clandestine government suppression of the ET presence. However, it is very likely that this will soon change in a dramatic fashion either in the form of an overt conflict with ET’s by militarized clandestine government organizations who unwittingly overstep tacit boundaries that limit overt ET intervention, and/or an engineered ‘Second Coming’.
These likely events require some forethought into how individuals and global humanity can best respond to such events/announcements while preserving human sovereignty and independence. While the… [CONTINUED.. see comment below]

Our mass media is on an extraterrestrial kick. Watch any television or read any current magazine and you’ll usually find at least one reference to UFOs and their alien pilots. Print ad’s and TV commercials abound with the space aliens and their antics. It seems the popular notion is that UFOs (or Flying Saucers) are spacecraft from other planets. Many researchers no longer ask: “what are UFOs?” Instead they question, “What planet are they from?” But what do we really know about unidentified flying objects?
As any investigator of UFOs know, the phenomenon is multifaceted, it seems to first be one way, then suddenly another. People witness what appears to be unknown solid objects in the air that suddenly fade away like ghosts. Others come into contact with beings that seem to be from the unknown craft. These creatures come in all shapes and sizes, and claim to be from just about anywhere. There have been so many witnesses over the years that we can no longer simply dismiss all such sightings as mistakes, hoaxes or delusion. But neither can we simply except UFO’s at face value as visitors from other planets.
Strange sights in our skies is nothing new. For as long as we have had written records, reports of UFOs have been made. Strange entities are also not new to mankind’s history. Many such beings in the past have claimed to be from the heavens. Since the earliest times, mankind has felt that there must exist a mind superior to his own. Until now, Man has always thought of supreme beings in a religious context. That is why until the industrial revolution, sightings of UFOs and contacts with strange creatures were thought of as mystical experiences.
With ‘Science’ as the new religion, the former “Gods” and “Angels” have now turned into the “ET’s” and “Grays.” In fifty years we have witnessed the birth of a new religion, the church of interplanetary visitors. As with other religions, proof is not needed, only faith. What is it that has converted so many to the extraterrestrial dogma? From the very beginning of the modern UFO era (1947) some witnesses claimed to have been contacted by the occupants of the Flying Saucers. These creatures said they were from other worlds, usually planets from our own solar system.
The contactees were shown pictures of the home planets, some even claimed to have been taken to these other worlds. They were convinced their experiences were real. Not every UFO sighting led to an occupant sighting, nor did all entity sightings lead to communication with the witness.
During the Europe UFO flap of 1952, strange creatures, apparently associated with the UFOs were reported by witnesses. However, there was little actual communication between the beings and witnesses. Generally the stories were the same, the witness, while out at night, spots a strange metallic object on the ground, close by is seen one or several humanoids. After a few seconds the beings re-enter the object which then flies away. The entities sighted range in description from tall blond, blue-eyed humans, to short hairy dwarfs.
As time went by these creatures no longer ran away, but instead sought to communicate with people, usually to warn of the dire results of using atomic weapons. A favourite subject of aliens in the 1950’s. They also spoke of their home worlds, places of utopian peace and beauty, but now farther away, in other solar systems or as close by as the center of our hollow earth. Again the witnesses accepted what they heard as the truth. They spread the information through self-published pamphlets, books, radio talk shows and television. These contactees were universally laughed at and discredited. However, maybe we should have considered that the contactee had a real experience, but was then fed false information.
Emanuel Swedenborg once wrote: “when spirits begin to speak with man you should not listen to anything they say, for surely they will lie.” Perhaps our friends from the Flying Saucers are kin to the spirits that Swedenborg wrote of. “They tell such wondrous tales.”
What are we dealing with then? The UFO phenomenon does seem to be controlled; it does follow intelligent patterns. But the information given to us by the ufonauts is generally false, and is, perhaps, a deliberate smoke screen to cover-up what really is going on. Whatever the UFOs are up to, they are doing it on a world wide scale. And it’s inevitable that they should from time to time come in contact with some of us. When such contacts do occur, they deliberately hand out ridiculous information. Our belief systems are exploited. This whole mystery has been designed not only to keep us confused and sceptical, but to convince us that we are hosts to visitors from other planets. Someone is very interested in keeping this idea alive.
Starting in the 1970’s and continuing through the 90’s, the “Alien Abduction” story appears to be a recent development in the ever growing UFO mystery. Research has shown however, that this story has roots extending as far back as writings in ancient sumerian texts, to the books of the Bible. For years, people saying they’ve been snatched up by non-human entities has not been an uncommon occurrence. Perhaps one of the best researched incidents is the alleged abduction by aliens of Betty and Barney Hill. Their story is covered in the excellent book, The Interrupted Journey by John Fuller. The Hill’s experience would serve as a template as others over the years would report similar abductions.
The number of participants involved also increased. Whereas in the past, usually only one person was abducted, now reports of whole carloads of people being kidnapped have surfaced. In the 1980’s , abduction phenomenon changed from random encounters on dark roadways, to people being taken from their beds in the middle of the night. As more and more people came forward to tell of their encounters, similarities in the details became apparent.
What was interesting in the early days of abduction research, was that people who had no previous knowledge about UFOs were telling practically the same story. This was before the extensive media attention on abduction experiences, so it was unlikely that all the witnesses could have been influenced by the same outside sources.
Today the abduction stories along with the abductors have become ingrained in modern folklore. The stories and descriptions of the alleged aliens have become homogenized. The early stories saw a multitude of events and entities. Now the entities described almost always are what are now known as the “Grays.” Short humanoid creatures with grey skin, large heads, and huge black eyes. The UFO flaps in the fifties and sixties saw reports of all kinds of different creatures. Few past sightings have surfaced that coincide with recent descriptions of the grays.
Are we seeing a cultural condition? Or maybe some kind of human psychological bias? Entity reports from other countries continue to show a wide range of descriptions. This detail could enable us to better understand the nature of this mysterious phenomenon.
Of the case histories we’ve studied in this article, most are purely anecdotal, comprising witness testimony to an event for which that testimony generally constitutes the only evidence. It could be possible that every witness is either lying or deluded, even in those cases where more then one person, strangers to one another, report the same experience. I believe, though, that most of these reported cases really did, in some form, actually occur. What form that experience seemed to take, and what it’s real nature was, is another matter. In many cases, the witness offered no interpretation of their experience. They simply said what had happened to them and hoped others would explain it.
What are the facts with these cases? How are they being explained? Beings that seem to accompany UFOs are described by witnesses as short humanoids, tall beings, or even normal looking humans. Most of them do not match the standard descriptions that have been made so popular by rabid believers or by the media. This is the dilemma that faces modern UFO research. In the eagerness to grasp onto a few tentative patterns, which are often reinforced by bombarding witnesses with leading questions under hypnosis, many researchers actually select the cases that match their pre-existing expectations.
Naturally, this can lead to skewed results. However, there is a genuine UFO phenomenon. Years of research with thousands of witnesses over the years have convinced me of this fact. This phenomenon is not explained though by the revelations of alleged government agents. Nor by such UFO cult groups as Heavens Gate. The genuine UFO phenomenon appears to be associated with a form of non-human consciousness that manipulates space/time in ways we do not understand. Most researchers though, still cling to the notion that any non-human form of conscious must be from outer space.
The simple truth is if there is a form of life and consciousness that operates on properties of space/time we have not yet discovered, then it doesn’t have to be extraterrestrial. It could come from any place and from any time, even our own world. Past encounters with strange entities seem to show an almost personal connection with the witness. Personal beliefs of the witness appear to be known and exploited by the contacting beings. Before anyone had even heard of other planets we believed in fairies and sprites. We still have records of people who claimed encounters with these creatures, much like modern UFO encounters. Today we don’t believe in the wee folk. Yet the same basic phenomenon still occurs. It has just been dressed in more modern, space-aged clothes.
It is easy to speculate, everyone has their favourite theory. However, instead of letting personal theory control investigations, researchers instead need to listen to what is being said by the witnesses. Offer no explanations, because the phenomenon seems to conform to the participants expectations. Look at the evidence that has been gathered over the last one thousand years, not just the last fifty. What is being seen? What has been said? What is the real evidence that is being presented to us? Only through knowledge will we begin to understand the enduring mysteries in our skies.

Pagan Gnostics suggest Extraterrestrial operatives and not Muslim scapegoats orchestrate “terrorism”
Is the War of Terrorism a Massive Hoax?
by John Stokes
Who are the “Archons”? ‘Archons’ as a term, is ancient. Dr. John Lash has made voluminous documentation about Pagan Gnostic warmings to humanity about Manipulative Extraterrestrials Archons and their human operatives. Throughout human history, the “Archons” have taken a variety of forms. These include the leadership of the Mongolian Hordes of Genghis Khan, as well as Julius Caesar’s Roman Empire; the Monarchs of colonial Europe who presided of the slave trade and other atrocities; and elites of Adolph’s Hitler’s Nazi Germany. Archons also take the form of leaders who have infiltrated religious organizations. These religious organizations pursue “riches”, while presenting fabricated messages which promise “salvation”, with obedience to their draconian authority systems. The latest and most dangerous incarnation of the Archons, preside over the “War on Terrorism”.
In contrast, “emissaries” have sought to countervail the self-destructive paths of the Archons. These “emissaries” have expressed themselves in part, through various spiritual and socio-political movements which seek to impart wisdom associated with messages of peace and social justice. These messages of peace from the “emissaries” include lovingkindness for each other, and living in harmony with the environment. These messages were imparted to groups which include Muslims, Jews, Christians who sought the original teachings of Jesus, Hindus as expressed, in part, by Ghandi, Buddhism à la the Dalai Lama, indigenous peoples in Canada and elsewhere; and broad social-ecological and other groups.
“Archons”, are parasitic entities against the human spirit, and they pursue insatiable power, which they can never satisfy, like a drug addict who pursues that elusive “high”. Archons express themselves in organized systems like capitalism, which they use to consolidate the pursuit of power among elites, relative to enslaved populations, which they control by fear, and by contrived tribalisms. These tribalisms include provoking inter-group racisms à la today’s Iraq, in which groups are so absorbed in a weakened state of alienation, fear and retribution against each other in a culture of violence, that they pose no threat to uniting against the Archons.
Archons seek to lure humanity away from wisdoms toward the affirmation of the quality-of-living associated with the teachings of the “Emissaries”, and into a path of self-absorbed, iniquitous, and divisive crass materialism, which spawns a culture of violence.
Archons seek insatiable power which can never be fulfilled
Historically, “Archons” have pursued an insatiable quest for power through an agenda of greed and exploitation. Within the context of their orchestrated “War on Terrorism” Archons use techniques of mass-deception, via psycho-political manipulation, reinforced by co-opted and compliant media and educational systems.
These techniques of mass-deception are used to blind “the masses”, so that humanity can be divided against itself. In so doing, Archons create contrived lines of “enmity”. Pivotal techniques of mass-deception include the creation of scapegoats which can be blamed for alleged provocations. For example, the Archons of Nazi Germany torched the Reichstag, then blamed “Jewish Communists” for the incident, just as the apparent Archons who preside over the so-called War on Terrorism have contrived “Muslims” as a scapegoat.
Mounting evidence on the “War against Terrorism”
Mounting evidence by independent research analysis suggests that unless the World Trade Center in Manhattan was literally made of dominos, it is impossible for a couple of planes to have brought it down. Learned academics have postulated that the World Trade Center could only have been brought down in the manner and speed that it was by a “controlled demolition”. In a corresponding vein, there were no “Weapons of Mass Destruction” in Iraq. Yet, that message was apparently fabricated to legitimate a war, which reportedly could only have been launched with years on pre-planning. Similarly, the launching of military operations against the “Taliban” in Afghanistan, which is a group created and run by Archons, is a further apparent cover-story — reinforced by mass-media operatives — toward the pursuit and accumulation of the oil riches in that region.
Pre-planned nuclear war against Iran as a result of destruction of “targeted” U.S. and Canadian cities
It is also apparent that the Archons have pre-planned a nuclear war against Iran, which can be triggered-off, no doubt, by another but much more devastating ‘Crime against Humanity’, than the World Trade Center. Such a more devastating Crime Against Humanity will possibly involve the destruction of whole cities which will falsely be linked to “Muslim groups funded by Iran”, that can be used to create a mass hysteria, in favour of a plan that is aimed at “nuking” Iran and its allies, in retaliation. Allies of Iran which include Russia, and China are apparently aware of a march toward pre-planned nuclear war, and they have been reportedly engaged in their military preparations for a forecasted nuclear showdown.
The Archons in Nazi Germany, for example, were famous for talking diplomacy, while preparing for the launch of military strikes in an agenda of military expansionism. Russia lost over 20 million of its citizens by a similar course of aggression that Nazi Archons pursued, and now apparently fully intends to retaliate against any attack in its perceived “Asian security zone”.
An Orwellian “North American Union” in 2010, as a sought prelude to a New World Order
Archons pursue a New World Order, and apparently hope that creating mass devastation in U.S. and Canadian cities will forge a “North American Union”, in which oil and other resource riches of Canada will be directed to further vanquishing Muslim and other “enemies” toward a New World Order presided by ‘Aryan’ elites.
Reports have circulated that Archons seek to establish a North American Union in 2010, alarmingly suggest that the Archons seek to execute a nuclear war against Iran by 2010. This further alarmingly suggests a “trigger incident” in Canadian and U.S. soil, which can be used to legitimate “nuking those groups which destroyed our cities”, and demands for rounding up Muslims, just as German citizens demanded Jews be rounded up in Nazi Germany.
The “War on Terrorism” bears the marks of the ideological fingerprints and hideous intelligence of Archon tacticians. Indeed, the “War of Terrorism” is advancing the conquest agenda of Archon fascists. Essentially ‘terrorism’ is being instigated by its benefactors.
As Nazi “Archons” sought to take over the world, Archons under the cover story of the “War on Terrorism”, and “Economic Globalization” have re-instituted their bid to take over the world.
The Archon infiltration of progressive western democracies including Canada and other societies
The Archons learned from their experience in World War II,that they had to infiltrate strategic institutions of the United States and its allies, in order to take over the world. Societies which include, for example, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Italy, and Germany, along with a slew of oppressive Third World regimes, are being governed by groups ideologically linked to U.S. led “Globalisationist” Archon groups.
Now, that the Archons have accomplished that goal that they have patiently pursued since the formal end of World War II, they seek to subjugate the Earth and its populations including Muslims, to Archon oppressive fascistic will.
Today’s Archon operatives
Today’s Archon operatives include a clique of corporate elites and “pseudo-intellectuals” who could most succinctly be described as ‘Nazi sympathizers’. These “Archon’ operatives view themselves to be descendants of ‘Aryans’, and they seek a “New World Order” in which the world will be “cleansed” of inferior races — including Muslims. Archon operatives belong to cliques that once provided money and industrial assistance to Nazi Germany. In the industrialized West, Archon operatives have cleverly sought to use Christianity to disguise a substantively “anti-Christ” ideology.
Humanity must wake up to its prospective self-destruction along with the Earth, in a similar vein as Mars
Humanity must liberate itself from its apparent capture by the Archons, and re-must embrace the wisdoms associated with the “Emissaries”. Otherwise, Humanity will inevitably destroy itself. The Archon mass-deception strategy that Iran poses some “threat”, is a similar mass-deception strategy that was a pre-cursor to the military subjugation of Iraq. Humanity MUST wake out of its stupor under Archon manipulation. Otherwise, humanity will face under an Archon military dictatorship which destroys Earth; as Mars had been destroyed. This is a prospective imminent future of globalized famine, never-ending military retributions, the spread of diseases associated with nuclear warfare.

What is your understanding of God? Across the spectrum of organized religions people who acknowledge the existence of God , tend to make allusions to a God associated with a “Heaven above”. This God is popularly viewed as having made directives as forms of commandments various doctrines associated with organized religions that humanity is obey.
“Hell” is then often associated with these organized religions and is imputed to exist in some kind of “below Underworld”. However, African Elder, Credo Mutwa, suggests that before the intrusion of Manipulative Extraterrestrials through organized religion, earthbound indigenous peoples had appreciated God, as not to be associated with a “Heaven above”, and that has made commandments. Rather, indigenous people critically appreciated Earth’s biosphere to be the living expression of God.
That is why indigenous peoples from Canada, the United States, and other parts of the Americas, as well as in Africa, have tended to seek to live in balance with nature. African Elder Credo Mutwa and Gnostic accounts documented by John Lash suggest that “Hell” may have actually descended to Earth “from above”, in the sky.
Indigenous peoples tend to view God and Nature to be one, and they view humanity as having a spiritual and social responsibility to respect planet Earth. In contrast, the Christian religion, for example, that represents what Gnostic scholar Josh Lash refers to as a “doctrine of the aliens” (and other emissaries of Manipulative Extraterrestrials) sought to manipulate indigenous peoples, and “the masses” in general, to consider the indigenous knowledge about God to be “Pagan” or “heathen” (being “without God”).
While indigenous knowledge sought to appreciate God as existing within all living things in the planet, that must be then respected, emissaries of the “doctrine of the aliens” have sought to create what Gnostics represented as being an “impostor God”.
John Lash cited the Gnostics as documenting the impostor God as “the face of Manipulative Extraterrestrials” that seek to oppress and to exploit humanity, through the creation of alien-directed religious commandments.
Credo Mutwa told Rick Martin, a Spectrum Magazine writer, that Chitauli [Manipulative Extraterrestrials] told human beings that they have been wrong in believing that God dwelt under the Earth. “From now on,” the Chitauli told people of this Earth, “the people of Earth must believe that God is in Heaven, and they must do things here on Earth which would please this God who is in Heaven.”
African Elder Credo Mutwa then elaborated the following insights to Mr. Martin:
You see, originally, human beings had believed that God was underground, that she was a very great mother who dwelt under the Earth because they saw all the green things growing from under the Earth-the grass came from below ground, the trees grew from below ground, and the people had believed, therefore, that the dead people who died go underground. But when the Chitauli [Manipulative Extraterrestrials] turned humans’ eyes towards the sky, people started believing, now, that God is in the sky and that those who die from this Earth don’t go underground, but go up into the sky.
This testimony coincides with Gnostic warnings of “demons of the sky” that sought to bring the sort of religion to humanity, that John Lash documents in his very detailed metahistory.org website, as being the “doctrine of the aliens”.
Credo Mutwa then elaborates that conflicting contemporary African tribal views of God are the outcome of the infiltrations by Manipulative Extraterrestrial:
|And to this day, sir, throughout Africa wherever you go as an investigator, you will find this amazing — these two amazing ideas which conflict with each other.Many African tribes believe in what is called Midzimu or Badimo. Now, the word Midzimu or Badimo means “them who are in the sky”. But, in Zulu-land, amongst my people, you find this amazing schism going hand-in-hand. There are Zulus who believe that the dead ones are the Abapansi, which means “the ones who are below, who are under the Earth”. Then there is another idea which says Abapezulu. The word Abapezulu means “those who are above”, and the word Abapansi, which is the oldest name for the spirits of the dead, means “they who are under the Earth“.So, even today, sir, all over Africa amongst hundreds of tribes, you find this strange double-belief that the dead go into the sky, and side-by-side with the belief that the dead die and go under the Earth. This belief that the dead die and go under the Earth is said to date to the days when our people believed that God was a woman, the great Cosmic Mother. And, it is contrasted by the Abapezulu belief that God is a man who dwells in the sky.
The patriarchical notions of God, is a further apparent Manipulative Extraterrestrial deception that has been the basis of a culture of sexism, under genocidal male-lead empires that have subverted the vital role of women, and also the values of femininity that are associated with social compassion, in the existential equanimity of Earth.
“In May 1999, Israeli historians researching ancient copies of the Apocrypha told the newspaper National Midnight Star that one translation of the Virgin Mary’s conception after a visitation from God described a chilling tale which sounded very similar to the accounts of people who had undergone gynecological examinations in UFO abduction experiences. When reporters pressed the codex researchers to comment further on their intriguing claims, the historians were evidently advised by the religious authorities to withhold further interpretations of the timeworn texts. — Quotation taken from “Was Jesus an Extraterrestrial” by Tom Slemen LINK
Credo Mutwa also reinforces John Lash’s documentation of Gnostic warnings about Extraterrestrials using religion to control and also to eventually directly rule humanity on Earth.
African Elder Mutwa further elaborates the following insights in his interview with Rick Martin:
Now, sir, another thing that the Chitauli [Manipulative Extraterrestrials] told our people, it is said, is that we human beings are here on Earth to change the Earth and to make it suitable for “God” to come down one day and dwell in it. And it is said that they who work to change this Earth and make it safe for the serpent god, the Chitauli, to come and dwell in it, will be rewarded with great power and with great wealth.Sir, as I have watched over many years of study, over many years of initiation of the mysteries of African shamanism, wisdom, and knowledge, I have found myself wondering why we human beings are actually destroying the Earth on which we live.We are doing something which is only done by one other species of animal, namely, the African elephant, which utterly destroys every tree in the place in which it dwells.We human beings are doing exactly this. And wherever you go in Africa, where once there were great ancient civilizations, you find desert. For example, there is the Kalahari desert in South Africa, and under the sands of that desert, I have found the ruins of ancient cities, which means that human beings turned this stretch of land, which was once green and fertile, into a desert. And, in days when I was with explorers and safari people in the Sahara regions of Africa, I also found evidence of unbelievably ancient human habitation in places where there is nothing now but angry rock and whispering sand.
In other words, the Sahara Desert was once a fertile country and was turned into a desert by human beings. Why? I must ask myself, again and again, why are human beings being driven by insecurity, greed, and lust of power to turn the Earth into a desert in which, ultimately, no human being would ever be able to live? Why?
Although we are all aware of the terrible dangers that this will bring about, why are we cutting huge areas of jungle in Africa? Why are we on Earth carrying out the instructions which the Chitauli programmed into us? Although my mind refuses to accept this, the answer is a terrible yes, yes, yes.
Amongst the many people of wisdom who honour me with their friendship, is a man of great knowledge who lives in Israel, Dr. Sitchin. [Editor’s note: This reference is to Dr. Zecharia Sitchin, author of many provocative books about the interaction of extraterrestrial peoples with Earth humans in very ancient times.] According to the ancient books which were written by the people of Sumeria, out of clay, gods came out of the sky and forced human beings to work for them, to mine gold for them.
This story is confirmed by African legends throughout Africa, that gods came out of the sky and made us into their slaves, and they made us into slaves in such a way that we would never realize that we are slaves.
One other thing that our people say is that the Chitauli prey upon us like vultures. They raise some of us, they fill some of us with great anger and great ambition, and they make these people they’ve raised into great warriors who make terrible war.
But, in the end, the Chitauli do not allow these great leaders, these great war chiefs and kings, to die peacefully. The warrior chief is used to make as much war as possible, to kill as many of his people, and those he calls enemies, as possible, and then, in the end, the warrior chief dies a terrible death, with his blood being spilled by others.
This is the context of psychopathic rule designed to perpetuate the dividing and ruling over humanity, in a state of fear and culture of violence that Dr. Kevin Barrett writes about in the article titled “Twilight of the Psychopaths”. LINK
People’s apparent mis-understanding of God, appears to be responsible for much of the problems of Earth today. Reported emissaries of the Manipulative Extraterrestrials, have sought throughout history to inflict genocide against indigenous peoples in an apparent attempt to extinguish the critical knowledge that aboriginal peoples have about God, and also about the extent to which human quality-of-living would be affirmed, by being guided on wisdoms from elders that have been orally passed from generation to generation.
by Dr. John Singh
Have you ever wondered about what kind of God has been the source of the inspiration for genocide, suicidal missions, oppression, racisms, sexism, homophobia along with countless wars on our planet Earth? Pagan Gnostics suggest that, God, as presented in various organized religions, is a construct that has been created by Manipulative Extraterrestrials. Dr. John Lash documents organized religions, with a particular reference to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, as being “fronts” for an agenda of alien dominance and control.
Activists, associated with the UFO Disclosure Movement, complain that there is a cover-up of on-going contact of aliens with human elites. However, Pagan Gnostic insights suggest that the organized religious construct of God, may simply be a pseudonym for an “overlord” that regressive/demonic aliens have sought to rule over humanity. Therefore, the mention of God, may in itself, be a form of implicit ‘disclosure’, based upon Gnostic insights. Dr. Lash documents Pagan Gnostic testimony of “artificial man” having infiltrated elite-driven human institutions, that have sought to anoint themselves with religious piety.
Based in part of Pagan Gnostic wisdom, once we begin to critically appreciate what it means to be human, demands for “Disclosure” become relatively moot. The Pagan Gnostics indeed witnessed the nefarious activities of regressive aliens all around them, almost as “plain as day”.
Dr. Lash documents how Pagan Gnostics detected the ego-driven artificial intelligence of regressive aliens, by elevating their own consciousness. This elevation was achieved by embracing the human spiritual interconnectedness, that Manipulative Extraterrestrials have sought to repress through organized religion and transhumanism (secularism, i.e. “Darwinian Theory of Evolution), associated with an alien-directed eugenics program. As Gerry Zeitlin reveals, by repressing knowledge of actual human origins, through religious and transhumanistic disinformation and obfuscation, “artificial man” could then be freed to pursue various strategies in a social control agenda against humankind.
Pagan Gnostics insights, suggest that oppressive ideologies, which include those from capitalism to nazism to totalitarian communism to religious doctrine, are all alien constructs. These ideologies are apparently designed to undermine a mutualistic context to the development of humankind, that would then create an “existential positive energy matrix” that would be hostile to the ability of regressive aliens to parasitically co-exist in our time-space continuum on Earth. Indeed, that development would also be hostile to a continuing pursuit of their alleged infiltration activities, as “archons”.
Michael Cremo in a book called Devolution suggests that so-called modern humans have “de-evolved” from more socially advanced, and spiritually interconnected beings. Alex Collier, an alleged contactee of Ethical Extraterrestrials, alludes to an ancient war between humans and regressive aliens. Alex Collier seems to further suggest that Earthbound humans were abducted en masse as intergalactic “Prisoners of War”, into a “holographic universe” inhabited by lower-dimensional demonic entities.
The Pagan Gnostics referred to these lower-dimensional demonic entities as “archons” or “artificial man”. That is because these cited regressive aliens are “soul-less” artificial forms of life. Modern terminology might instead refer to such entities as “cybernetic organisms”, that have allegedly been created through violent “fractilizations” of matter. The demonic nature of these entities, is allegedly the result of the formation of ego driven consciousness spawned from violent matter-energy reactions.
Pagan Gnostics suggest that God as contrived by organized religion, is a mechanism that is orchestrated by regressive aliens, to oppress human spirituality. By imposing a system of commandments that is reinforced by rituals, and of constructs like “sin”, regressive aliens sought to pursue social control against humanity.
According to Pagan Gnostic insights, through the alien construct of God, Manipulative Extraterrestrials have sought to broadly condition “collectively abducted” Earthbound humanity, into accepting “blind faith and allegiance” to a non-accountable and arbitrary system of authority. That is apparently why throughout human history in this universe, religion has played, and continues to play a central role in various authority systems.
Pagan Gnostic cite the God associated with the Judaic, Christian, Islamic and other such organized religions is formed out of a delusional entity of an alien universe that a constituency of humans have been captured in. According to Pagan Gnostics, the regressive aliens that inhabit this “holographic universe” lack the soul of humans, and thus lack a creative consciousness. However, these regressive aliens through their fractal origins, have the ability to mimic the reality of biological races that it has conquered, and that they do so through an ability to“shape-shift”.
This gives the ability of such entities to infiltrate human institutions, and then disorient and control human institutions, away from their constructive potentials.
Pagan Gnostics, also corroborate modern reports of regressive aliens seeking to abduct human beings. By abducting humans, regressive aliens could then re-introduce “alien controlled human biological entities” (AC-HBE) back into human populations, as the “humanized” faces of regressive aliens. Such “AC-HBEs” and alien shapeshifters, have been alleged by David Icke, and African elders like Credo Mutwa, as prevailing over the invasive control and sabotage of human sovereignty of our planet Earth.
Gary Zeitlin, suggests that the presentation of human origins that is associated with God, as constructed by organized religion; and the “transhumanism” that is associated with the Darwinian theory of evolution, and with “Intelligent Design” theory (the idea that humans origins lie with the genetic “creation” of humanity by aliens), are apparently all alien deceptions. Reportedly human abducting regressive aliens through these deceptions apparently seek to divert humanity from pursuing initiatives to critically appreciate the de-evolved origins of humanity.
African Elder Credo Mutwa describes ancient knowledge of humans as being a highly spiritually connected and telepathic beings, before lower-dimensional aliens that descended from the sky, and captured a constituency human beings in this linear space time continuum.
Pagan Gnostics, suggests that humanity needs to liberate itself from thealien constructs of ‘God’, and “transhumanism” (that encompasses the idea that humans are actually “progressing” through the apparent oppressive technological development of society), that itself links the course of human progress, to the technologically circumscribed “template” of the regressive aliens.
Could indeed the recent economic downturn being linked to the organized efforts of regressive aliens through AC-HBE toward a “New World Order”, as testimony from Alex Collier alleges in Defending Sacred Ground? Pdf LINK.

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.
