Lessons of the Tyrolean Iceman

Turns out we can learn a lot from Frozen Fritz. Also called Oetzi, the iceman recovered from the Austrian alps in 1991 and has been carbon dated to 3300 b.c.e. Turns out he lived at the time of the Copper age in Europe. It is entirely possible that he is a representative of the Ozieri culture that later developed huge megalithic walls for defense against the very agressive Nuragic culture that began to take over the area in about 1600 b.c.e. His body was found 92.56 meters inside Italian territory (46°46’44?N 10°50’23?E? / ?46.77889, 10.83972).

The Ozieri carved underground structures out of the solid rock called in their legends “domus de janas” or Houses of the Fairies. These are considered graves but have long ago been looted, so there is no real evidence left of them being used otherwise. They lived as farmers and artisans, producing fine pottery, metal implements, obsidian, huge dolmen and megalithic circles such as that found in Stonehenge and Avebury. They had trade with areas all over the Mediterranean region.

They had a simple religion based on gods I recognize from other cultures all around the world: the Horned Bull and the Mother Godess.

What do we learn from him?

The Framing of Jesus of Nazareth

Jesus of Nazareth

The things that Jesus taught were absolutely and unqualifiably good things for the human race to learn. However, since the time of Jesus, his message has been distorted because in the eyes of history, he didn’t teach what he was “supposed” to teach.

Later, those in power or hoping to be in power (such as Saul-Paul) used his message for their own ends and this is how we now have dozens of “Christian” religions and one very corrupted Christian religion in power over Europe. Jesus predicted that. Constantine may not have converted to Christianity on his deathbed, but he sure used it for his political ends. The popes ever since have been figureheads of the Roman Empire that never fell completely; the empire just “got” religion.

Blame it on Indiana Jones!

Blame it on Indiana Jones!

After seeing the new Indiana Jones movie The Crystal Skull, I am more excited than ever about the acceptance of the Ancient Astronaut theory. People are coming out of the woodwork to find out what I believe. The Vatican observatory has announced that ETs could be out there and it’s OK to believe in them. Old friends are calling me to tell me that they saw the movie and thought of me and my weird theories. Well, they aren’t mine, but I can tell you whose they are:

Petroglyphs – Valley of Fire

The Valley of Fire derives its name from red sandstone formations, which were formed from sand dunes during the Jurassic period. Prehistoric users of the Valley of Fire were the Anasazi who were farmers from the nearby fertile Moapa Valley. The timespan of approximate occupation has been dated from 300 B.C. to 1150 A.D. Their visits probably involved hunting, food gathering, and religious ceremonies, although scarcity of water would have limited the length of their stay. Fine examples of rock art left by these ancient peoples can be found at several sites within the park. The most numerous being along Petroglyph Trail, leading to Mouse Tank.

Electricity in the Ancient World?

Temple of Hathor

The Temple of Hathor at Dendera, on the Nile north of Luxor, is one of the latest Egyptian temples. Dedicated to the wife of the god Horus, it was built in Roman times and depictions show Roman emperors alongside Egyptian gods. Along with Abydos, which is further north, Dendera is a day trip from Luxor. The village of Dendera is situated 60km north of Luxor on the west bank of the Nile, opposite the provincial town of Qena, where the Nile Valley road branches off to the Red Sea town of Hurghada. It’s ancient name was Lunet and it was also known as Tentyris during classical times.
 This temple may depict the usage of electricity, magnetism, and the principles of the modern light bulb.

Of Gods and Mortals

The Planet Mars

Is it possible that our definition of God has changed over the last 10,000 years?

Could it be that the original meaning of the word God was “a master more powerful/intelligient than anyone else we have encountered”? or even “the strong guy that wields lightning and orders us around a lot”? and that through centuries of encounters with god and storytelling about these experiences we have embellished to the point of deification? It would explain a lot…

The Piri Reis Map

The Piri Reis Map

In 1929, scholars working in the archives of the Ottoman Empire in Turkey’s Topkapi Palace Museum made an exciting discovery: a section of an early 16th-century Ottoman map based in part, apparently, on the original chart drawn or used by Christopher Columbus and showing his historic discoveries in the New World. The map, signed by an Ottoman captain named Piri Reis, was dated 1513, just 21 years after Columbus discovered America.

A Turkish friend of mine was kind enough to locate and obtain an official Turkish Navy copy of the Piri Reis map as it is displayed in the museum in Istanbul…with one key difference. The Arabic comments in the margins have been replaced by English translated comments.

Is DNA really a recent discovery?

dna-molecule

Now that they claim that the human genome project is completed, it may take a while for the “smoke to clear”, or as some conspiracy theorists may suggest, “for the evidence to be hidden”.

It seems that there are some few genes in our code that don’t appear in anything else on the planet.  One report says 223, the other says 40. To be fair, one of the solutions presented are that we may have been changed by bacterial infection. However, not all of the discrepancies are present in bacteria, their presence in our genome explained by symbiotic lateral transfer from the bacteria within our bodies. If those remaining genes did not evolve on earth, how did they get in us? The implications are that evolution is only partly responsible for our apparent intelligience and domination of this little rock.  Another is that this proof that has been anticipated by Intelligient Designers that “God” created us by modifying our genes.
