Georgia_Guidestones3

Located in Elbert County, Georgia, the Georgia Guidestone’s origin is as elusive as its purpose. However, conveying an apocalyptic like Ten Commandments in eight live languages and four ancient, is a testament to its steadfast functionality rather than philosophy.

The ten guides for a new Age of Reason are as follows:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion – faith – tradition – and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.

The Utoya Island Massacre

article-2132656-12A08321000005DC-401_634x488

Anders Breivik, the perpetrator of the 2011 Norway attacks, bombed a government building in downtown Oslo and subsequently committed the mass shooting of Utoya Island that left 77 dead and hundreds injured.  As news of the blast rocked the peaceful nation, Breivik dressed in a police uniform boarded a ferry to Utoya Island,  which hosted the Norwegian Labor Party’s summer camp, a political party he was fiercely opposed to as he felt they were facilitating the undermining of Christianity in Europe through “multiculturalism”.  Breivik’s shooting spree lasted nearly half an hour  before he was apprehended.  Shortly before the attack, he emailed a 1500 page manifesto titled “2083 – A European Declaration of Independence” to thousands...

The Dyatlov Pass Incident

Dyatlov_pass-incident3

In February 1959, nine university students died of mysterious circumstances while ski-hiking on Mt. Otorten in the former Soviet Union.  The details of their deaths remained classified until the fall of the iron curtain.  Previously conducting hard tracks, all were experienced climbers. On the 4th night of the climb, bad weather forced them to camp on a plain not far from the peak.  Two weeks later when the hikers failed to reach their destination, a search and rescue mission went underway.  The military found the campsite abandoned, with one tent being damaged, cut from the inside.  The bodies of the hikers are found near the forest edge. They fled the campsite taking no clothes...

The Death of György Dózsa

Gyorgy_Dozsa_sculpture

György Dózsa, a Hungarian nobleman, gained affluence after successful campaigns in the Turkish wars. When appointed leader Pope Leo X’s crusade of 1514 against the Ottomans, about 100,000 peasants volunteered to serve him. Considering the low social standings of peasants in medieval hierarchy almost no provisions were afforded by their landlords, and the crusaders were poorly equipped and lived in deplorable conditions. Conflict further arose when during harvest time, landlords attempted to forcibly recall the peasants. The struggle resulted in revolt and the grisly murders of hundreds of noblemen and with Dózsa capturing the town of Csanad. Eventually, the rebellion was suppressed and Dózsa captured...

“Diamond Planet” PSR J1719-1438

Diamond

PSR J719-1438 was first observed  in 2009 by astronomers in Melbourne, Australia and then published in 2011. The planet is by far the densest  exoplanet ever discovered and is comprised of carbon. Scientist have concluded that due to the density, this carbon must be crystalline (diamond).  PSR J1719-1438 is about twice the size of earth and would potentially comprise 50% of the diamond in our galaxy. It’s orbit lasts a mere two hours. Such planets are likely to be extremely rare as the planet is likely the remains of a binary star which avoided complete destruction. All of a sudden girls have an interest in astronomy?!

Lake Vostok

Lake_Vostok

In 1959 the Soviet Antarctic Expeditions set out to measure the thickness of the ice sheet in a section of Antarctic, but during the research, the existence of an sub-glacial lake was confirmed. The Russians opted, as many scientists would, to yield a core sample. The sample would demonstrate how life would evolve in such a harsh environment, and possibly give insight on the nature life in space. The international community weighed in and forbade such actions as the water sought after was in a pristine condition, with no exposure to the atmosphere for over 400,000 years...

The Tamam Shud Case

SomertonMan4

In December 1948, an unidentified man was found dead on the Somerton beach in Australia.  Circumstances surrounding his death indicate a rare poison was the likely cause, but whether a homicide or suicide was never determined. During the autopsy, a rolled paper with the words “Tamam Shud” was found in a hidden or “fob”pocket of the man’s pants.  Found to be the last phrase in a book of Persian poetry,  “The Rubaiyat” , it means “ended” or “finished”.  A copy of this rare book was later turned into police by a citizen, who believed the book was placed in his unlocked car, not far from the scene. Through microscopic analysis of the reverse, it was established  the paper found on the man, had been torn from the book found...

Oak Island Mystery

Discovered in 1795, The Oak Island Mystery “Money Pit”  is one of the mysteries still unconquered by even modern man. Oak Island has claimed both international interest and the lives of six attempting to uncover it’s secrets.  I’ve found that an exert from History Channel’s Ancient Aliens best describes the anomaly. One could argue that it’s contents may not be as important as the lengths gone to yield them.

The Mysterious Coral Castle

Coral Castle

Coral Castle built in 1923, is a megalithic structure built by Edward Leedskalnin, a Latvian immigrant of a tiny stature, 5’’ and 100 lbs.  The structures served as his living quarters and a tourist location. The site’s intrigue is surrounded by its creation. In addition to working alone, Leedskalnin would forbid anyone from watching.  It is claimed by teenagers who snuck to the site one night saw Leedskalnin levitating blocks weighing up to 30 tons with ease.  Once interviewed, the only tool he claimed to have used was a device he called a perpetual motion holder and magnetic lay lines that circled the Earth.  In 1936, he chose to move Coral Castle from Florida City to Homestead, Florida...

Hit by Hiroshima and Nagasaki Bombs…Still Goes to Work!

Double Nuke

Meet Tsutomu Yamaguchi, the only person officially acknowledged by the Japanese government to have survived both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings.  August 6th marked the end of a three month business trip, and much more.  While preparing to leave Hiroshima, he saw an American bomber and a blinding flash of light shortly after. He suffered a ruptured ear drum and burns on the left side of his body.  Given the inherent work ethic of the Japanese, despite his injuries, Mr. Yamaguchi reported for work for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in his home town of Nagasaki only three days later.  While describing the ordeal to his supervisor, “Fat Man” reached critical mass at 11:02 am, August 9th, killing tens of thousands...
