Massive Ancient Underwater Caves Reveal Ancient Mayan Relics

Archaeologists who have been exploring the world’s largest underwater cave, recently discovered in Mexico, presented their findings Monday, including fossils of giant sloths and an elaborate shrine to the Mayan god of commerce, reports phys.org.

Researchers discovered last month that two large networks of underwater caves in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, the cave system known as Sac Actun, once measured at 263 km (163 miles), and in fact connected with the 83 km- (52 km-) Dos Ojos system forming the largest such structure on Earth.

Diving with SCUBA gear, they have been exploring the ancient relics left in the caves over the millennia, in a project sponsored by Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

Researchers believe the water level in the caves has fluctuated over time, and that they were a source of water in times of severe drought, a sometimes perilous one.

Some of the animals and humans who ventured inside never made it out alive. Today, their remains are a treasure trove for scientists, enabling them to piece together bits of the cave’s history dating all the way back to the Pleistocene epoch (2.6 million to 11,700 years ago).

The animal remains include gomphotheres, an extinct elephant-like animal, as well as giant sloths and bears.

Then there are the artifacts left inside by humans: burnt human bones, ceramics, wall etchings and more. Many others of the hundreds of sink-holes that connect to the cave have elaborate signs of ritual activity around them.

The ancient Mayans viewed caves, and especially ones that led to water, as extremely sacred places.

Mayan ‘Megalopolis’ With 60,000 Structures Discovered in Guatemalan Jungle

Laser scans reveal Maya “Megalopolis” below Guatemalan Jungle. Laser technology known as LiDAR digitally removes the forest canopy to reveal ancient ruins below, showing that Maya cities such as Tikal were much larger than ground-based research had suggested.

In what’s being hailed as a “major breakthrough” in Maya archaeology, researchers have identified the ruins of more than 60,000 houses, palaces, elevated highways, defensive walls, ramparts, terraces, fortresses and other human-made features that have been hidden for centuries under the jungles of northern Guatemala.

Complex irrigation and terracing systems supported intensive agriculture capable of feeding masses of workers who dramatically reshaped the landscape.

At its peak in the Maya classic period (approximately A.D. 250–900), the civilization covered an area about twice the size of medieval England, but it was far more densely populated.

Secret Chamber In Giza Pyramid May Hold Pharaoh’s ‘Meteorite Throne’

We reported in our article: ‘Secret chamber found in the Great Pyramid of Giza’ about a long-hidden narrow cavity in the Great Pyramid of Giza that has been found by scientists in a discovery that could finally reveal the secrets of the 4,500-year-old monument.

Now, according to new analysis of ancient religious texts carved into pyramid walls around 2400 BC this mysterious chamber may hold an iron throne carved from meteorites.

These texts, it is said that the pharaoh, before reaching the stars of the north, will have to pass the ‘gates of the sky’ and sit on his ‘throne of iron’.

All credits go to Giulio Magli, Director of the Department of Mathematics and Professor of Archaeoastronomy at the Politecnico di Milano who has studied the texts.

Although it is still a theory, Magli proposes that it’s possible the throne of Pharaoh Khufu – or ‘Cheops’ – lies inside the chamber and of course the throne would not be melted iron but meteoritic iron, that is, fallen from the sky in the form of iron meteorites and again cited in the texts,” Magli says in his paper, reports RT- read more.

What Ancient Human Civilizations Said About The Moon – The Moon Is Not What You Think It Is!

Ancient Human Civilizations across multiple continents around the world speak of the time BEFORE the Moon arrived – and with it so did our ocean tides, seasons and conditions prime for an abundance of life.

However, there is an abundance of evidence that significant information regarding our Moon and the Apollo landings have been withheld from the masses as well as the Moon Express mining operation raises questions of this as well.

Ancient Egyptians tell us they superseded an Earlier Kingdom

How over the ages have we managed to class History as Mythology you have to wonder, is it simply because the Powers that were at Play on this Earth thousands of years ago did not fit our understanding in relatively modern times?

By calculating the decrypted information obtained from the Papyrus of Turin, we obtain the initial period, referred to as the kingdom of Ptah, creator and first ruler of ancient Egypt, dating back 39,000 years!

The Egyptian historical texts are not the only one to record extremely long life and kingdom reigns and just as the Sumerians state that they did not develop their knowledge, but that it was given to them.

Just as the Incans told the Conquistadors “We did not build this. It was here long before us.”

Why is it that humans don’t know their true origins and why all the things they have discovered in Egypt and everywhere else have been kept away from us?

Because it would change every aspect of life here!

Linda Moulton Howe: NASA’s interest in the 7000-year-old Petroglyphs discovered in Northern Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan is the ninth largest country in the world, larger than Western Europe, and extends from the Caspian Sea on the west to Mongolia on the east; from Russia in the north to Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and China in the south.

Kazakhstan was the second largest republic in Russia until the 1991 collapse of the U.S.S.R. Kazakhstan has been inhabited for a long time and it is thought those people were the first humans to domesticate and ride horses.

In fact, the name, Kazakhstan, is from an ancient Turkic word that meant “independent, a free spirit.”

Now in 2015, NASA has taken interest in photographing from the International Space Station unusual and very large geoglyphs discovered in the southern Kostanay region and Turgay steppes of northern Kazakhstan.

More and more of the unique and mysterious geoglyphs keep being discovered and the number is now over 200. Their ages are between 3,000 and 7000 years or older and they can only be viewed from high in the air.

In the eleven-minute interview Linda Moulton Howe talks about the amazing discovery and NASA’s interest in these ancient petroglyphs.

Explore the ancient caves and labyrinths under Chichén Itzá, Mexico

Chichén Itzá is a complex of Mayan ruins on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. A massive step pyramid, known as El Castillo or Temple of Kukulcan, dominates the ancient city, which thrived from around 600 A.D. to the 1200s.

The mysteries of the Mayan “Snake God” could be revealed after scientists discovered a secret passage that would lead to an underground cave in the Kukulcan Temple, the name by which the Mayan deity is known as a feathered serpent, reports El Universal.

Unlike the European cosmogony that places deities in paradise; Mayan spirituality believed that the divine was in the underworld: that is why formations like caves and cenotes were so scared, because they were a means of access to the interior of the earth, according to the California State University scholar, James Brady.

The Ancient Padmanabhaswamy Mysterious Sealed Temple Door That No One Can Open

The mysterious Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple in India is known to be the richest temple in the world as it is covered in gold and billions of dollars in treasure have been found in several vaults but there is one mystery that makes it stand out from the rest and that is a mysterious sealed temple door that no one can open.

This mysterious door of the ancient Padmanabhaswamy temple is protected by two massive cobras painted on it and has no bolts, latches or any other means of entry.

It is said to house unimaginable wealth, and can only be entered by a high level ‘Sadhus’ familiar with the knowledge of chanting a ‘Garuda Mantra’.

It is believed that the door was sealed shut by sound waves from a secret chant lost in time. Hindu priests say that at present, there is no human capable of opening this door by executing these chants.

Secret chamber found in the Great Pyramid of Giza (Video)

A long-hidden narrow cavity in the Great Pyramid of Giza has been found by scientists in a discovery that could finally reveal the secrets of the 4,500-year-old monument.

Location of the cavity, see the white dots in the above image.

Described as a ‘deep void’, it is at least about 100 feet long and up to 230 feet above ground, running over the Grand Gallery, an ascending corridor that links the Queen’s chamber to the King’s in the heart of the pyramid, reports Dailymail in their in-depth article on this discovery.

It is not known why the void exists or if there are any valuable artifacts inside as it is not obviously accessible. More research will be conducted to reveal the secrets of this cavity which is so big, it’s like a plane with 200 seats in the heart of the pyramid, explains AFP Medhi Tayoubi, co-director of the project ScanPyramids at the origin of the discovery.

See below the interesting video of ScanPyramids using advanced non-invasive technologies which allow them to see through stone walls to discover any voids or internal unknown structures.

‘Monster’ planet just discovered that was thought IMPOSSIBLE to exist!

A giant planet – the existence of which previously thought extremely unlikely – discovered around a small star by an international collaboration of astronomers, with University of Warwick taking a leading role.

Image above is an artist’s rendering of the red ‘monster’ planet – Mark Garlick, University of Warwick.

NGTS-1b is the largest planet compared to the size of its companion star ever discovered in universe – contradicts theories that a planet of this size could not be formed by such a small star Discovered using the state-of-the-art Next-Generation Transit Survey observing facility, designed to search for transiting planets on bright stars.

NGTS-1b is 600 light years away from us – it is a gas giant the size of Jupiter which orbits a star only half the size of our Sun at an extremely fast pace.

It’s amazing that they keep finding new planets, habitable exoplanets, Stars and even they have confirmed the existence of a planet nine but nothing is said about planet X also called Nibiru, except that it is a hypothetical planet and doesn’t exist.

The late Zecharia Sitchin wrote numerous publications on the planet Nibiru.

The planet Nibiru associated with Marduk in Babylonian cosmology is a central element of Sitchin’s theory and he claims it was a tenth planet (twelfth to those who included the Sun and Moon) which followed a long, elliptical orbit, reaching the inner solar system every 3600 years and was the home of a technologically advanced human-like extraterrestrial race called the Anunnaki in Sumerian myth, who Sitchin states are called the Nephilim in Genesis.

Despite Sitchin’s theory we cannot say for sure if Nibiru is real or just a hypothetical planet, though it is worth mentioning that the existing of a Nibiru solar system has been mentioned by numerous ancient civilizations.

Maybe they are not telling us everything about this ‘monster’ planet, but for now it is just another new discovered planet rather than part of the Nibiru system, which next passage is in the year 2085 according to Sitchin.
