Ancient Civilizations and Prophets

According to another legend, which is set out in the Chronicles of the nearby Buddhist monastery, the pyramids began in the era of ancient emperors, whose ancestors came to Earth on “the kites of iron”. Therefore, the oldest of the pyramids is more than 5,000 years. A full-blooded descendants of those ancient aliens from outer space in China is considered to be the stunted folk “Zopa”, living now in China’s Sichuan province. Far from their settlements, in a remote area of the mountain range of Bayan-Kara-Ula are amazing ancient burial sites. In huge multi-tiered buildings are absolutely correct round shape with radiating in all directions stone rays are numerous graves with the remains of the ancestors “Zopa”, the age of the earliest of which nearly 12,000 years! Inside the tombs lie the skeletons of mysterious creatures similar to human, but differs from them a disproportionately large skull is too thin and fragile bones. In some burials the researchers also found metal disks with a diameter of 30 cm and a thickness of 1 cm, on which both parties were located in a spiral engraved with unknown characters and symbols. Just found 715 similar disks, most of them had traces of exposure in the distant past of strong magnetic fields. After decryption, Kotorosl about 25 years, was that the drives contain the history of the destruction of the spaceship of the ancestors “Zopa” that had come from Sirius, as well as the hardships and suffering endured by those who survived after the disaster. Since then, on the orders of the Chinese government the area is declared closed for any unauthorized visits.

True or not, but really ancient China has produced many unique inventions: from the first rocket technology and gunpowder to printing and toilet paper. Two thousand years ago the Chinese already used drilling rigs for salt mining, oil and gas. Their height exceeded 50 m, they used durable bamboo cables and iron drills of different shapes, and the extracted gas was passed at a distance on the pipe system. Then were developed the first tool – a device for measuring the distance traveled by the cart; the basis of their mechanism constituted of a gear reducer, the prototype of the modern manual transmission car. In the II century of our era scientist and inventor Zhang Heng (78-139 ad) invented the first seismograph, which allowed to predict earthquakes, and celestial globe of mechanical and compass (a cart with a mechanism of gears, a pointer Continue reading

The most unexpected archaeological finds of the season

On the eve of the day of archaeologist, celebrated on 15 August, the head of the Department of archaeology of the Moscow Russia of the Institute of archaeology Russian Academy of Sciences Leonid Belyaev told about the most interesting artifacts found by experts this year.

The first birch-bark Vologda

On the site where was founded the city of Vologda (the territory of the archaeological monument “Vologda settlement”), has discovered a unique artifact – bark scroll of the XVI century. Such certificates on birch bark was found only in nine Russian cities.

The amazing fact is that on birch bark, survived several centuries, it is still possible to make out the text, inscribed by our ancestors. Part of the message has already managed to solve. It talks about the financial Affairs of the first mentioned and the ruble. Here’s how he deciphered the message: “Jacob, Ananikov father-in-law, your Brother Ostaf! I sent you a ruble to a ruble Samojla. And I have no penny, no protorov”.

Soon birchbark scroll will then be specially dried, after which it will preserve and placed under glass, which protects it from moisture. Soon, this discovery will join the collection of the Vologda Museum-reserve.

Cocaine in Egyptian mummies

When Columbus associates has opened a New land that was not India, they found not only dying from smallpox sufferers. They opened a world of unprecedented animals and plants that are found only in America. And only after this event, as it was believed until recently, Europeans became acquainted with leaves of Coca Bush and all the ensuing consequences. But now it turns out that in this story not all ends meet. If Columbus was the first European to set foot on American soil, how can one explain the traces of cocaine found on the bodies of Egyptian mummies? In 1992, German scientists have done studies one of the mummies, and to my surprise I found traces of hashish, tobacco and cocaine in hair, skin, and bones. For example, hemp could bring back from Asia, it’s not that unbelievable. Egyptian pharaohs a lot of things could afford. But tobacco and cocaine could be born only from the New world! In a building the conventional historical science is cracked and faltered. Before mummification, it turns out the pharaohs with his family already dabbled in cocaine.It is the same as in the blood of some of our celebrities suddenly found a drug that grows only on Venus. How could this happen? Here everyone has their own theory. Somebody’s sinning in archaeologists, who in celebration of the valuable findings could have a party and tried to connect the mummies to the General merriment. Or the mummies themselves were fake, or someone from the archaeologists overzealous in their love of mummies and mummification. The German scientists did what in their place would make everyone who values its reputation, they had another independent examination. And again found the drugs. And then they announced across-a drug test all available mummies. A third of them tested positive for nicotine. Moreover. In the guts of Ramses II were found pieces of tobacco leaves. And not only the leaves is a dead tobacco beetle was found last shelter in the womb of the great Pharaoh. Any ideas?

The Hebrew inscription on the stone in new Mexico

This 90-ton rock found in America, near Albuquerque (new Mexico) in 1933. As it turned out, the ten commandments inscribed in Hebrew. Experts from around the world could not grasp how this could be.
