Royal BC Museum: Stone Hammers, Mayan Balls and Metal Pipes

  • 1,963
  • 14
No pipe touching was allowed, but it sure was no gold, or copper. It appeared to have some light rust about it, and appeared to have the same altar material inside of it. You judge for yourself, but it looked like a piece of an iron pipe. May be iron piping was required for ancient Mayan altars...

Victoria, BC or BS: real history buried in 20 feet of dirt

  • 2,007
  • 9
If something happened in 1907-1910 and resulted in 20 feet of dirt burying the entire city, wouldn't history reflect that? It probably would, but then again, nothing is surprising any longer. Personally, I think whatever brought the dirt happened way before 1907. I'm thinking along the 1812 time...

Robocops, Automatons, and Mechanized War Chariots of the Ancient World

  • 1,758
  • 13
They are immune to heat and cold, untouched by the elements, and can fly, mounting upward with a fluttering motion. They dwell apart from the chaotic world of man, subsist on air and dew, are not anxious like ordinary people, and have the smooth skin and innocent faces of children. The...

The Wrath of the Gods: GeoWeapons vs Mud Flood

  • 4,259
  • 27
It's been mentioned in various posts here and there, but I do not think we have a dedicated thread for this "liquefied dirt" phenomena yet. We are yet to approach any sort of understanding of our Mud Flood related issues where buildings ended up buried in the dirt. What if some advanced weapon...

Manoa El Dorado, Lake Parime, the Lost City of Gold and the Headless People

  • 2,179
  • 8
Lake Parime is a legendary lake located in South America. It was reputedly the location of the fabled city of El Dorado, also known as Manoa, much sought-after by European explorers. Repeated attempts to find the lake failed to confirm its existence, and it was dismissed as a myth along with the...

Erie County Savings Bank - Chronicling Destruction

  • 2,161
  • 22
This post is a bit different than my usual breakdown of late 19th century architecture, as this will primarily be in regards to when the building in question was demolished rather than built. Not only were these types of buildings stunning to see, and impressive by any standards - they were also...

What is the real history of Modern Sports?

  • 2,108
  • 17
Thinking lately about sport, and how it appears that all modern sports (ball sports in particular) appear to have popped up right at the time of our considered reset (early mid-1900s.) I do not have any specific proof, this is just my wondering mind. We have discussed at length here how we...

Hypothesis: Mutiny in the Sky or the Short History of the World

  • 8,681
  • 54
Essentially we had this "SkyLab" which created our Earth, its environment, humans and creatures. The "SkyLab" was naturally situated outside of the Earth Enclosure (dome if you will) but the lab staff was able to visit and inspect/work as was needed. This "SkyLab" had a strict hierarchy, where...

Human Fossilization: thousands of years they say

  • 3,363
  • 45
I am not sure what the exact fossilization time frame is. Correct me if I'm wrong, but something fossilized is normally being associated (by the general public) with a very distant past. Normally we hear this "fossil" word referencing dinosaurs, which automatically makes those creatures (if they...

Herodotus asserts that Zalmoxis was originally a human being, a slave who converted the Thracians to his beliefs. The Greeks of the Hellespont and the Black Sea tell that Zalmoxis was a slave of Pythagoras, son of Mnesarchos, on the island of Samos. After being liberated, he gathered huge wealth...

Drexel Building, The Corner, 23 Wall Street, NY

  • 2,420
  • 33
Yesterday I was re familiarizing myself with some photographic work, and I was reading the book 'The photograph' by Graeme Clark. I was reminded of this image by Paul Strand, 23 Wall Street, 1915. My 1st thought was, how big are those windows? (Thinking giants) my next thought was wow, what an...

1861-74 California State Capitol: construction or not?

  • 1,706
  • 16
The California State Capitol is located in Sacramento. The Neoclassical structure was completed between 1861 and 1874 at the west end of Capitol Park, which is framed by L Street to the north, N Street to the south, 10th Street to the west, and 15th Street to the east. I had no plans on touching...

The London Colosseum was a building to the east of Regent's Park, London. It was built in 1827 to exhibit Thomas Hornor's "Panoramic view of London", the largest painting ever created. The design of the Colosseum was inspired by the Pantheon in Rome. The Colosseum was built on the east side of...

Early 19th Century: Highway Steam Locomotives, Related Laws and Roads

In 1829 Hancock built a small ten-seater bus called the Infant, with which in 1831 he began a regular service between Stratford and London. It was powered by an oscillating engine carried on an outrigger behind the back axle. The boiler was vertical and made up of a series of narrow parallel...

Ancient and early 20th century Robots

  • 2,208
  • 18
A while back I ran into this 1900 Automatic Man. As far as I can remember, the robotic qualities were dismissed by a semi-elaborate hoax, where an electric carriage was used to propel the contraption forward. A walking automaton has been invented by Louis Philip Perew of Tonawanda, which...

Insane Asylums of the World

  • 3,847
  • 27
In this thread I wanted to bring up some of the most elaborate Insane Asylum Buildings constructed in the United States and other countries. Most of these buildings were allegedly produced between 1850 and 1900, with a few built somewhat earlier. Some of them either do not exist any longer, or...

The Next Reset

  • 11,379
  • 109
If the goal (written in stone) is to 'maintain humanity under 500 million" then why bother letting us know we're all gonna die? Could it be that there are some who possess original ancient documents of survivors of previous cataclysms which depict how difficult it will be to even have 500...

In 1850, Senator Jefferson Davis introduced an appropriation bill to enlarge the Capitol. President Millard Fillmore selected architect Thomas U. Walter to construct large northern and southern wings containing new legislative chambers. As work progressed, Walter also designed a new cast-iron...

Black Kings Erased Out of History

We know all kings come from a single root. Windsor royal house changed in WWI (1917) the official name (Sax-Coburg-Gottha) to the more "inglisch" Windsor. As if they knew German-Prussian branch was about to disappear (as it happened), and being pointed as a damn'warrior and cruel dynasty (as...
