Synthesis of ideas: intelligent creatures shared the Earth

  • 1,618
  • 25
Hypothesis - in the relatively recent past there were other intelligent creatures sharing the Earth with human beings. I know it is not polished, but I just wanted to put the ideas out there and see what people thought. So, I often have looked at charts of supposed human population growth since...

Flight - A Revised History

  • 1,092
  • 7
Something is clearly up with the history of aeronautics we've been sold. At present, the current narrative suggests that the Montgolfier brothers balloon was the first craft to successfully take to the air. The first free (non tethered) human flight took place on November 21, 1783, by science...

Did Cherokee Indians Build the Greco-Roman Architecture in the U.S.?

  • 4,237

The history of Rome, Georgia extends to thousands of years of human settlement by ancient Native Americans. Spanish explorers recorded reaching the area in the later 16th century, and European Americans of the United States founded the city named Rome in 1834, when the residents of the area were...

What was "Truth" during the golden age of historical forgery?

  • 1,586
  • 11
Being a little familiar with Fomenko's books and some topics/posts from this forum and elsewhere, that age of forgery might be the years 1000 to 1800. During this time perhaps all books of the bible, all of Roman and Greek history, all of Asian history etc. were repeatedly forged to one degree...

Ancient Cannons aka Ball Mills aka Cement Kilns?

  • 1,666
  • 15
The goal of this thread is to suggest a hypothesis that some of the ancient so-called cannons are being grossly misrepresented. I think we have a mix of real cannons with the ones which are not cannons at all. Their visual resemblance allowed the masters of the narrative to pass ancient...

Hindenburg: Was Zeppelin technology a threat to the 20th century?

  • 3,298
  • 29
And that was the last time anyone ever saw commercial airship travel. No, seriously. It was over after this, after hundreds of successful flights and a track record for safety (pretty amazing that anyone survived that crash, they were clearly designed with safety in mind) airship travel was, on...

Vitrified Fortresses - The other fort

  • 627
  • 3
Vitrified forts are generally situated on hills offering strong defensive positions. Their form seems to have been determined by the contour of the flat summits which they enclose. The walls vary in size, a few being upwards of 12 feet (3.7 m) high, and are so broad that they present the...

1893 Chicago Ferris Wheel: World's Columbian Exposition

  • 1,126
  • 7
The Ferris Wheel made its debut at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, 1893. It was, of course, a big hit with fair goers, who enjoyed their first taste of this amazing ride that would become a carnival staple ever after. I knew these basic facts, but didn't really pay attention to the...

Mud Flood in Chattanooga, TN and Leavenworth, KS. Underground Cities and Tours.

  • 1,405
  • 5
To be honest, I doubt there is a "not in the loop" person out there, who knows the exact mechanism of the arrival of mud. We clearly have multiple theories which provide possible explanations of why lower floors of the 19th, and early 20th century buildings ended up buried under up to 20 feet of...

Viktor Grebbenikov & The Cavernous Structure Effect (CSE)

  • 1,075
  • 12
Recently, the work of a highly obscure Russian entomologist has become available to a much wider audience, a humble and quiet man by the name of Viktor Grebbinikov). His life work was the study of natural objects such as beetle wings, honeycombs, stalks of wheat, and flowers. Although he was a...

Friesland: The land that time forgot

  • 3,200
  • 36
Haven't looked into it much, but I think this island deservers it's own thread. It disappears from the maps only at the end of the 18th century it seems, and stayed there longer than other supposedely mythical places like Hyperborea. Frisland is a phantom island that appeared on virtually all of...

Reich and Empire: the origins and true meaning

  • 1,338
  • 25
Аs far as English language goes, we are so used to this word being a stand alone one - REICH. Normally we relate it to the German Nazis lead by Mr. Hitler. Yet, the Roman Empire in German is Römisches Reich. Naturally, it appears to have been an interesting move to avoid calling things with...

The Calendar Conundrum

  • 1,478
  • 26
The Julian calendar, proposed (allegedly) and instituted by Julius Caesar in 46 B.C. was a reform of the old Roman Calendar based on a 10 month (March-December) calendar year started at the time of the Roman Empire founder, King Romulus (whenever THAT was). The mean calendar year equals 365...

19th century Engineering Magazines

Just like with any information, its comprehension depends on which angle you approach it from. If you are ready to accept that semi-naked Ancient Egyptians built the Pyramids using chisels and sleds, it will prevent you from considering other possibilities. Any attempts at visualization of the...

Terra Ammiracionis - Land Beyond the Sea

  • 1,108
  • 13
In the land beyond the sea, that is called Terra Ammiracionis, there ruled Count Sattan of Aligemorum. Under his rule was born a knightly man who was called Abraham of Temonaria. He was born 810 years after Noah's Flood. He took a wife from the realm Samamorum, who was a daughter of Lord...

Savannah Georgia: Urban Fire or Faux?

  • 928
  • 12
Savannah, GA was not burned to the ground twice as history would say, the architecture that remains is evidence of a previous civilization. In the spirit of SH, we will go with Tartarians as the de-facto civilization. Let's start with the history of the town. I'm gonna skip around a bit as I'm...

Bigfoot, a.k.a Sasquatch

  • 1,779
  • 33
Let's discuss the Bigfoot phenomenon. If this creature exists (which I believe it did if it no longer does), then they've remained some of the most elusive beings to ever roam this great Earth. A fugitive on the FBI's Most Wanted Fugitives list can learn a thing or two from the legendary...

Nuremberg Chronicle - 1493

  • 1,224
  • 20
I was just peeking through the thread regarding Unicorns where the book Nuremberg Chronicle was introduced. Latin scholars refer to it as Liber Chronicarum aka Book of Chronicles. In general I'd like to have this thread revolve around the discussion and findings from this book and where those...
