Marietta, Ohio’s Ancient Earthworks: Star Alignments as a Portal to the Path of Souls Thursday, February 11, 2016
By Gregory Little
In the January, 2016 issue of AP, several important stellar alignments at the 2,200-year old Native American earthworks in Portsmouth, Ohio were confirmed. These alignments were found on the Winter Solstice (in 200 B.C.E.) directly in line with the three major earthwork/mound components at the site. The alignments included (horizon) sight paths to the setting of the Cygnus Constellation, the rise and setting of Orion’s Nebula, combined with the Scorpius Constellation being below the horizon and not visible. All three of these stellar elements are necessary requirements in the ancient Mound Builder’s beliefs in the journey of the soul after death.

Psychic Flyby over Atlantis Saturday, February 21, 2009
By Doug Yurchey
What if there was a way to view Atlantis? Is there a type of Time Machine that can take us to what the Earth was like tens of thousands of years ago? We can read books on the subject, but they are mere speculations. How about a book that was not speculation? It is not ‘about’ Atlantis. The book opens windows to the real Atlantis. Such a means to experience Atlantis, the Mother-Civilization on Earth, is possible. The technique resides through the eyes of Edgar Cayce.
Upon Which I Observe The Black WindFriday, July 6, 2007
By Paranormal News
What is this wind dislodging our leaves? It is a whisper, a black mass of lost souls pleading for others to follow in their wake and attach themselves to their teats. Standing in its presence, it makes so much sense. All the warnings are for naught when its voice is heard, speaking the pleasantries of death, fucking, anger, blood and destruction—the foul stench and strength from its occupants smells sweet.

History is full of mysterious disappearances — of people, of places and even of entire civilizations. In many cases, time has not told us what happened to the populations that have vanished en masse, all over the world. Archeologists unearth ruins and uncover clues as to the demise of ancient cultures, but the fates of many inexplicably evaporated peoples remain question marks. Here are four mysteriously vanished civilizations that keep scientists scratching their heads.

A recent discovery could radically change our views of one of the world's most famous archaeological sites, Tutankhamun's tomb.

There are two previously secret chambers hidden in King Tutankhamun’s tomb, Egyptian officials have said. Hidden behind the walls of the Egyptian tomb are secret chambers, which could be “full of treasures”, according to previous statements by Egyptian officials. There is a 90 per cent chance that the hidden chambers exist, according to Egypt’s antiquities minister. The two rooms contain either metal or organic material, according to the scans. They are hidden on the north and eastern walls of the tomb, a minister said.
