Islamic Jesus

Jesus as portrayed in the Islamic religious tome the Koran is far different than the Jesus seen in the Christian teachings of The Bible. What, exactly, are the differences? How did they originate? Which version stands out for being more trustworthy? Black Pigeon Speaks delves into this theological mystery.

The Lost Gospel of Thomas

The Gospel of Thomas is part of the Nag Hammadi library discovered in Egypt in 1945, basically a collection of non-canonical sayings allegedly made by Jesus and considered by the Church as a heretical Gnostic text. Scholars speculate that the works were buried in response to a letter from Bishop Athanasius declaring a strict canon of Christian scripture. More from Robert Sepehr.

Egyptian Find Rivals King Tut

Did Doyle Know Grail’s Locale?

Does Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Musgrave Ritual hold the clue to the location of the Holy Grail?

The Scottish writer Doyle is most familiar to us today as the creator of the detective Sherlock Holmes. A lesser known fact about him is that he was also a Scottish Rite Freemason.

Doyle was a highly intelligent and well-read man, who later in his life turned to mysticism and was the head of a Spiritualist movement, which lobbied to change England’s old law against witchcraft. He was a champion of the occult, and relished the writings of Aleister Crowley and Madame Helena Blavatsky.

Doyle was also knowledgeable in regards to the Grail writings and some believe he knew of its hidden location. Was Doyle just spinning a yarn or was he speaking truth? More from Zohar StarGate’s Ancient Discoveries.

 

5,000-Year-Old City Unearthed

Archaeologists have unearthed En Esur, one of the greatest cities of antiquity, in Israel. The 5,000-year-old settlement has been called a cosmopolitan wonderland by researchers and is thought to have been home to 10,000 residents during the Bronze Age.

Another important piece of the puzzle to our historic past, En Esur was a planned settlement with a network of streets, alleys, squares, and drainage and storage installations. Researchers point out that this type of structural thinking and planning was most likely only found in centers of trade. Here’s more on the discovery with BuzWeaver on The Lost History Channel TKTC.

Lost City Of Dwaraka

Dwaraka is a coastal town in Jamnagar district of Gujarat, on the west coast of India. Traditionally, modern Dwaraka is identified with Dvaraka, mentioned in the Mahabharata as Krishna’s city. Dwaraka was a port, and some scholars have identified it with the island of Barka mentioned in the Periplus of Erythrean Sea.

Ancient Dwaraka sank in sea and hence is an important archaeological site. The first clear historical record of the lost city is dated 574 A.D. and occurs in the Palitana Plates of Samanta Simhaditya. This inscription refers to Dwaraka as the capital of the western coast of Saurashtra and still more important, states that Sri Krishna lived here. But what other mysteries lie within this ancient lost city? More from Zohar StarGate’s Ancient Discoveries.

 

Grafitti Of The Knights Templar

The assumption that first-hand evidence of the Knights Templars’ mysteries was erased along with the structure of their organization has been perpetuated by so many Templar books, that many researchers, scholars included, entirely ignore or skate-over the fact that the Templars actually did leave behind some startling indications of their thoughts in the form of stone-carved graffiti in prisons where they were held following the suppression in 1307. There is some in the dungeon at Warwick Castle in England and at Chinon castle in France.

Could there be secret messages coded into these strange carvings, left behind by desperate Templars? More from Zohar Stargate’s Ancient Discoveries.

 

The World’s First Queen

Control on the release of Egyptian findings has long been a problem in the archaeological field, but since the Egyptian revolution are there still signs that indicate a dogmatic approach to keep new finds secret?
In this episode, our attention is focused on the latest attempt to hide the real ancient history of an unknown civilization that left us with great wonders both above and below the sands of the Giza Plateau. More from Zohar StarGate’s Ancient Discoveries.

Mystery Behind Sun Temple

Six miles southwest of Cairo, just north of Abusir, is one of only two Old Kingdom sun temples known to have survived, although it is believed that many others existed and were destroyed, fell into ruin, or haven’t been found yet. The building of sun temples was the result of a gradual rise in importance of the sun-god.

This ancient site is connected to stories of strange magnetic anomalies, portals and contact with mysterious beings, but what do we really know about this ancient temple? Was advanced sound technology employed in its construction? More from Zohar StarGate’s Ancient Discoveries.

 

Ancient Aussie Cave Art Found

If it weren’t for some wasp nests sitting atop some ancient kangaroo cave art, researchers would never have been able to determine the age of this amazing find. The magnificent art was in fact dated between 17,100 and 17,300 years old, thanks to three wasp nests that were carbon dated.

The discovery of the kangaroo art is significant, because it signifies the  oldest known cave art recorded to date in Australia and reveals that there was a movement by aboriginal natives toward sheltered areas, away from ancient cataclysms. Within these boundary systems, people would live for a long time, and creativity and art were vital for longtime sanity. Here’s more on the discovery from BuzWeaver and the Lost History Channel TKTC.
