Well, let's see - crop circles abound, Atlantis is found, numerous UFOs are sited, dead aliens discovered, the Bilderbergs are meeting in secret, and 'Aussie Bloke' says that the world ends this week. Otherwise, things are pretty humdrum .......

  • Egypt is about to begin the five-year task of cataloguing and restoring some 90,000 Pharaonic and other artifacts which have lain almost forgotten for decades since they were dug from ancient ruins. Good idea - artifacts seem to be walking out the door.

Quote of the Day:




In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think, how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask is not an alien force already among us. There are only a handful of people who know the truth about this.

Thanks Bill for an excellent collection of news. Its good to hear from the real Dr. Gartrell although some will no doubt think this is part of the wider conspracy (Its the Teletubbies I tell you!!!). Even better, at last a truly believable site for Atlantis. Lastly, and by no means leastly, yet again you prove the wonderous powers of the Grand High Poobah of Egyptian archeology: he can get a 300 foot marble and bronze lighthouse built in this day and age for only 2,000 pounds sterling! Can he build me an extension and maybe a hottub?
Well done, Bill.

Thank you, Cernig.

During my tenure at TDG, I've probably posted a half-dozen or more "Atlantis discovered" links. This one definitely needs further investigation.

The Grand Potentate of Archaeology needs to pay more attention to the stuff that's already been found before he discovers an empty museum. ;o)

Without a doubt, the 2 short films linked today are no different than any other previously released evidence of UFO's "caught" on film. One is nothing more than pitch black with a few lights jerking around. The other is a hotspot of glare on the lens. Move along folks, nothing here, whatsoever.

This from the people at National Insitute for Discovery Science, a map plotting the occurences of triangular UFOs againt the location of USAF Air Mobility Command bases. Interesting. What do you make of it?

Well, although it's more interesting than the video's of UFO's, it is still just speculation, lacking any proof of actual advanced aircraft in operation.
By now, there should have been very clear, close up footage of a craft that would leave one impressed with the belief of ET activity. Or even "domestically built", computer controlled, advanced craft. No human could survive the g-force produced during the proposed performances of such sightings. No clear and concise video footage of any UFO in this day of affordable, high quality video cameras seems to suggest that there an over abundance of imagination, and an equally proportionate lack of hard, physical subject material.

Hi,

First of, is the fact that someone fingered to be the source of a story, denies this proof of the story being fake ? Or is it proof that those behind it have gone that extra mile to cover themselves ?
Second, it appears that TDG has been unreachable this weekend, at least for some in the UK- coincidence ? Or...could it have anything to do with fridays news and discussion.

In a channeling from 1975 it was stated that this planet would become an iceworld within 200 years if nothing changed. Then and until recently rather counterintuitive one might say. But these days opinions have changed somewhat. There's several things going on, the galactic duststorm we're entering is likely to obscure some of our solar radiation, the us's attempts to damp global warming by means of the 'chemtrails' could create a knock on effect aswell.
All this has nothing to do with the day after tomorrow scary weather but it will impact our climate and thus societies big time-

I live and farm in Northwest MO just miles from the supposed mutilation. I read the report and find it hard to believe that any of that is happening. I don't know how many of you live in a small rural area but if something like this happened everyone would know. Also we had some pretty big storms around that time and I would bet that it was a lightning strike.
