Alternate History of the World

Faux marble, Alexander the Great, Dhul-Qarnayn, Ivan the Terrible and our Lost History

  • 3,616
  • 24
When Dhul Qarnayn built Alexandria, he paved the ground and walls with white marble. The city’s inhabitants wore black and red clothes, whereas before that, the monks would wear black for the dazzling whiteness of the marble. The marble had the constituency of dough from early morning to noon...

1901: Pan Am Buffalo and why these Pan Ams were as insane as they look

  • 8,341
  • 92
Everyone seems to ignore Buffalo's magnificent pan am of 1901. Full of electricity, the grossly infatuated architecture and street thugs taboot. What I just wanted to mention (this is my first post here, thanks for having me)... I think this idea that Pan Ams were partly used to set up the...

Ancient TOP 9, and their Coats of Arms

  • 2,738
  • 17
Those things you run into while doing a little research here and there. Apparently the medieval people had their own TOP 9 of the historical, scriptural, and legendary personages who personify the ideals of chivalry. At least this is the official explanation provided by the contemporary science...

Was Cleopatra a medieval queen?

  • 3,971
  • 28
It appears, today we have this image of Cleopatra, the ancient Egyptian queen, ingrained in our minds. In my previous opinion Cleopatra was a strikingly beautiful woman, who looked what an ancient Egyptian woman was supposed to look like. And of course, Cleopatra related movies contributed to...

Questionable antiquity of the "ancient" statues

  • 4,195
  • 21
Wanted to ask for the community participation on this one. The idea is to show that ancient statues could be not as ancient as they seem to be. Personally, I am fairly convinced that this is the case but a little visual representation would make the case just so much stronger. Basically I...

Japanese legend of Utsuro bune. The hollow boat and the mysterious girl.

  • 1,337
  • 10
Utsuro-bune (hollow ship), also Utsuro-fune, and Urobune, refers to an unknown object that allegedly washed ashore in 1803 in Hitachi province on the eastern coast of Japan. When defining Utsuro-bune, the bune part means "boat" while Utsuro means empty, or hollow. Accounts of the tale appear in...

Year 1834 - Russian submarine rocket launch

  • 1,402
  • 11
I am not quite sure what to make of this interesting piece of information, but apparently Russians managed to launch some rockets from a submerged submarine as far back as 1834. Looks like they hit their targets as well. No clue why somebody would conceive such an idea in 1834. Granted, the sub...

79 A.D. no more: Pompeii got buried in 1631

  • 11,993
  • 44
The official version states that in 79 A.D. the ancient Roman city of Pompeii was buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. The site was eventually lost until its initial rediscovery in 1599 and broader rediscovery almost 150 years later in 1748...

Abandoned Saint Petersburg is ready for re-population, or why we do not know our true history...

  • 5,689
  • 42
It is not the lack of people which disturbs me the most. It's the absence of life in these 1860s - 1870s photos of the Russian city of Saint Petersburg. The population of Saint Petersburg was supposed to be 682,300 in 1870. We see none of it. Streets are clean, vegetation is scarce, no stray...

Ironclad ships - another example of Tartarian technology?

  • 6,559
  • 60
In my opinion, most of the ironclads (if not all) have nothing to do with progressive development of our technology. In other words, they came from nowhere. Another way of saying this would be something like this: we operated these ships, but we did not build them. I do not know who built them...

Our civilization did not build Titanic, Olympic or Britannic. Theirs did. Was it the Tartarian one?

  • 10,515
  • 64
Once again, tackling a well known topic, I risk to sound ridiculous but hold your judgement till you have some material objections to make. Jumping ahead I will say, that the issue of "we did not build this ship" extends way beyond these three ships. In reality, this is one of those instances...

Who was St. George the dragon slayer?

  • 3,099
  • 14
Everybody has heard of St. George but no one really knows who he was. Here is what we do know. The legend of Saint George and the Dragon describes the saint taming and slaying a dragon that demanded human sacrifices; the saint thereby rescues the princess chosen as the next offering. As a highly...

Alacanti (Tibi) Dam built in Spain between 1579 and 1594

  • 2,968
  • 12
Here we have another impossible, in my opinion, 16th century achievement. This time it is one of the oldest known dams. The Tibi Dam was built in Spain between 1579 and 1594. Before I go into the description of the dam itself, I wanted to emphasize that we are being fed this non-sense about the...

Could Challenger crew survive the explosion of their shuttle in 1986?

  • 2,103
  • 7
I know this story has been around for a while, but wanted to see what this forum thinks about the possibility of a false flag here. We all know that on January 28, 1986 NASA Space Shuttle Challenger broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members. I still...

Seattle regrading or unearthing? Which one was it?

  • 3,791
  • 19
I have been looking at these pictures for a while now. They definitely add to the strangeness of the time frame when the majority of the bizarre events took place. So what am I talking about? Some call it The Great Seattle Regrade, some call it the Denny Regrade. Here is what Wikipedia has to...

Europe's Greek Architecture Revival: An architecture crash course.

  • 2,032
  • 19
There is some debate among revisionist historians as to when many of the great classical buildings of Europe were built. The official timeline is rather straight forward. A large portion of classical buildings were built by say the Romans, Greeks or Byzantines (Romans with a different name.). We...

Sedona, Utah: circular saw or a weird natural occurrence?

  • 1,530
  • 10
There are a lot of bizarre rock formations in the Sedona area of Utah. A few days ago I took a couple of pictures of this strange cut on the side of this huge rock. What, in your opinion, could be the cause of this circular cut out looking thingy...

The Tricolour: This flag is not your friend.

  • 4,919
  • 29
Why is it that so many nation flags share the red, white and blue colour scheme? Whether its modern cold war enemies like Russian and the United States or the classic rivals France and the United Kingdom we find these reoccurring colours. It doesn't just stop with these major players. The red...
