... temperature of at least 20 degrees, which geologists recognize as "a decline" in temperature: It is evident, for example, in the discovery of frozen mammoths in the Siberian tundra. Possibly gravity- and therefore physical weight- was also changed on earth, and with it biological growth: this would explain the widespread construction of huge megalithic monuments as well as the presence of giants- man and animal- in fossil strata, tombs, and myths. According to Horbiger four moons fell on earth, producing four Ice Ages; our present moon, the fifth one, will similarly be drawn into the critical configuration of one-fifth of its present distance (380,000 kms ...

... , however, that the Chinese distinguished "bushy stars" (= tailless comets) from "broom stars" (= tailed ones). The illustration from the silk book of the 168BC Han Tomb at Mawangdui, Hunan Province, shows a series of objects which are surprisingly similar to the cup and ring and ladder markings of western European megaliths. Recent Mammoth Extinction?source: THE EGYPTIAN GAZETTE 13.9 .24 Until recently, scientists have believed that the mammoth became extinct in Europe between 8000 and 13000 years ago, and was then confined to central and eastern Siberia. This belief has been refuted by the find of mammoth bones dated to 5000 years ago to the ...

... The Times A large asteroid came closer to Earth than any since 1994 but wasn't detected until 3 days after. Another is reported with a 1:300 chance of hitting Earth - but not until 2880. A Times reader wondered what might happen if an asteroid missed Earth but hit the Moon. Len Saunders replied that his interpretation of British megaliths and climate changes indicated this did happen around 3500BC, nudging Moon out of orbit and causing catastrophic climatic changes on Earth.

... the OERA LINDA BOOK, Wr-alda or Alvader is God, the oldest of all, the Allah, the Alpha and the Omega. Who built Stonehenge? Archaeologists recognise the existence of two separate classes of people at the time, the worker/slaves and warrior technocrats. As to the enormity of the task, P. Lancaster Brown (MEGALITHS AND MASTERMINDS) writes: "Ancient peoples with plenty of muscle power, large timbers, time and a modicum of common sense could perform miracles' if the social incentive were there ." (author's emphasis) This is rather amusing when one thinks of the idea in the OERA LINDA BOOK that Britain was a penal colony. To ...

... the son of Charlemagne. Such claims are unlikely to be true and look more like a twelfth century historian's attempt to provide a glorious Carolingian imperial connection'. Just like some early British accounts try to establish a connection with the mythical King Arthur? ARCHAEOLOGY Older than Stonehenge Scientific American June 98, p. 18 A site of astronomically aligned megaliths has been found at Nabta, in southern Egypt's Sahara desert. They have been dated to 6000 to 65000 years old and therefore predate Stonehenge by 1000 years. They appear to accurately mark east-west and north-south directions, with a line of sight to the summer solstice horizon, and are associated with cattle remains and a rock shaped like a ...

... those of the Marquesans have been found all over South America. Have these old discoveries been satisfactorily explained or just conveniently stored away in dusty corners? Lost cities The Toronto Star 12.4 .98, The Daily Mail 25.4 .98 An Arabian Stonehenge' has been discovered in Yemen. An array of 7 metre high granite megaliths, deriving from a quarry 50km away, was erected 4,500 years ago and set up with sacrificed children beneath them. There was also a cache of copper-bronze tools. In Bolivia the recent search for Atlantis did not find its objective, not surprisingly, but four 600 year old lost cities were found high in the Andes, ...

... flow of tin to Europe from around Stonehenge. Stonehenge is also a rarity in Britain in that it incorporates a horseshoe feature. These are, however, common in Brittany. Stones that once formed part of the great circle at Avebury have now been discovered. At least 15 stones lie buried in an arc still in the circle itself. Megalithic type constructions continued into the Iron Age in the form of stone-lined passages with massive capstones, circular chambers and side tunnels. Called fogous, the Cornish word for cave, they are found in the extreme far west of Cornwall and resemble the contemporaneous souterraines found elsewhere in Britain. They were always built under settlement sites and may have been ...
