What did in the dinosaurs?
- Published: 29 July 2014
The demise of the dinosaurs, some 66 million years ago, represents the ultimate "Cold Case" - no eye witnesses, ancient physical evidence that's partial at best, and a pod of PI's bent on solving the mystery.
Armed with data from an additional decade of fossil discoveries - a new species is unearthed about once a week - and new analytical tools, an international team of paleontologists is pointing the finger at a now-familiar suspect: an asteroid or comet, which triggered the geologically sudden disappearance of dinosaurs.
But, the researchers add, the impactor had accomplices: changing climate and sea levels and a series of eruptions in which magma flooded the surface of a nascent Indian subcontinent as the motion of crustal plates carried it north across the Indian Ocean toward its eventual collision with Eurasia.
The Truth about Giant Skeletons in Native American Mounds
- Published: 30 June 2014
During the past few years a huge controversy has emerged accusing the Smithsonian (and a host of skeptics and archaeologists) of covering up the discovery of hundreds of giant skeletons from Native American Indian mounds. Jim Vieira is one of the key people who began uncovering hundreds of newspaper accounts of giant skeletons after he became intrigued by his visits to stone chambers found primarily in northeastern states. To date, Vieira has pulled together about 1,500 accounts from newspapers and books published in the 1800s and early 1900s.
A Colossal Dilemma Within Science & Religion
- Published: 26 July 2014
Let me assure you – I do believe in God. I believe in the Divine, with a big ‘D.’ I believe in a vastness, which has created this Universe and others, which our human minds can hardly digest. What I don’t believe in anymore is science, or religion.
Religion is nothing more than a human construct to try to explain the unexplainable. In the process it becomes political. Oh. So. Political.
Our religions institutions are now (and have been) used by the crumbling powers-that-be to divide us. We separate ourselves not just as fundamentalists, but also as ‘believers’ in dogma of every flavor.
