Ancient Geoglyphs




Geoglyphs are classified as rock art, which also includes pictographs and petroglyphs. Pictographs are rock paintings while petroglyphs are rock engravings. Cave paintings, drawings, petroglyphs, geoglyphs, hieroglyphs and more have been used all over the world for centuries.
Created by the ancients and left for us to explore and ponder, these symbols held great meaning for those civilizations who created them. Some, like the Egyptian Hieroglyphs, we know to be the cultures written language. Others, like cave drawings, express the daily lives or held religious significance for their designers. There are many however that offers more questions and possible answers then one mind can conceive. Among these are the great Geoglyphs found in locations around the globe.

In South America, the lines at Nazca are of the most famous geoglyphs, but they are hardly the only ones. South of Nazca, about 850 miles, is perhaps the world's largest human figure, etched into the side of Solitary Mountain. The Giant of Atacama at Cerro Unitas, in Chile, about 600 miles south of Nazca, is an incredible 393 feet high and is surrounded by lines similar to those at Nazca. Just 130 miles from Nazca, dug into a sloping hill at Pisco Bay on the Peruvian coast. This drawing looks very much like a candlestick - which gives it the name of "The Candelabra of the Andes". There has been much speculation about the purpose of the 595-foot high candelabra, but no definitive answer. It is constructed in a different manner to the Nazca lines, using trenches up to one meter in depth, and is best viewed from out at sea. It can be seen from as far away as 12 miles. Pottery found near the figure has been carbon dated to 200 BC. Interestingly enough, the Incan city of Cuzco was created in the shape of a puma. Its inhabitants were known as "members of the body of the puma".  Read More


 Out of Africa3 comments

The theory goes that all ‘modern’ human ancestors migrated out of Africa at about 50,000 years ago. That they, being the fittest for survival, over ran and exterminated other homo-sapient species. Is this the case? Are we all from the same genetic pool, the same ancestors, and the same region?

There is compelling evidence showing Africa as a major starting point for modern behavior. This can not be disputed. The climate in the deserts of Africa have been very kind to those who once lived grew and then were buried there. The amount of evidence from is the region is astounding, all persevered by the dry climate. It is a giant playground for paleontologists and archeologists alike.

The problem is that it is the amount of evidence that has been found that lead these same people to the conclusion that we all started there. The general consensus is that we have found so many artifacts there in relationship to the rest of the world, this must have been the first and most populated place. Starting with they frame of mind, scientist then set out to prove their theory was fact. Without abundance of evidence showing from another individual location, there is no real augment against it. Is there?  Read More

“The Crusades as a whole refer to the liberation of Jerusalem from the ‘infidel’, Muslims. Not being of the true (Christian) faith, they were without souls so killing them was sanctified, indeed, called for by the Church. However from the Moslem point of view the same applied to the Christians. They saw the Crusades as an invasion of unbelievers.”
This is what we have been taught, but was driving force of the crusades truly spiritual or political?  Read More

As we continue our look into Egyptian symbols and ancient technology, the mysterious 'Whatsit' is our next mystery to ponder. In the book 'The Rainbow Conspiracy' an amazing photograph is presented. This massive piece of unidentified machinery was one of six excavated in 1 of six excavated in 1990. According to the author’s informant, the items were secretly excavated on US Government property & promptly reburied by the same. The surfaces of these ancient ‘machines’ are covered with hieroglyphics, similar to ancient Greek, Hebrew or Sanskrit yet undecipherable. Are these ancient machines from the time of Atlantis? Could the hieroglyphics be the 'owners manual'? Or are these machines left from ancient aliens, a puzzle for us to decipher? Only time and investigation will tell  Read More
