It is one of the most important archaeological sites in South America, one of the most visited tourist attractions in all of Latin America and is the most visited tourist attraction in Peru.

Taj Mahal
In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was cited as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage." While the white domed marble mausoleum is its most familiar component, the Taj Mahal is actually an integrated complex of structures

Khajuraho Temples in India

GOD – History is Backwards
 - Exclusive from guest writer Doug Yurchey
The proposed film is a semi-remake of George Pal’s 1961 classic ‘Atlantis, the Lost Continent.’ In today’s age of Avatar, Clash of the Titans, blue-screens and CGI special effects…doing the quintessential ATLANTIS FILM is a must! ‘GOD’ (actually a post-Atlantis film) coming out in 2011 would be the exact 50th anniversary of the George Pal film. New film spans from 5000 BC. to 2000 BC.

Marijuana Conspiracy
Marijuana does NOT pose a threat to the general public. Marijuana is very much a danger to the oil companies, alcohol, tobacco industries and a large number of chemical corporations. Various big businesses, with plenty of dollars and influence, have suppressed the truth from the people.

Voynich Manuscript
The Voynich Manuscript is considered to be 'The Most Mysterious Manuscript in the World'. To this day this medieval artifact resists all efforts at translation. It is either an ingenious hoax or an unbreakable cipher.

The Baghdad Battery
The ancient battery in the Baghdad Museum, as well as those others which were unearthed in Iraq, are all dated from the Parthian occupation between 248 BCE and 226 CE.  Dr. Konig also found copper vases plated with silver in the Baghdad Museum, excavated from Sumerian sites in southern Iraq, dating back to at least 2500 BCE.

Knowledge vs Instinct
Our brain is a tool for thinking, but not its cause. Our brain has not invented thinking, the thinking invented the brain.
Fascinating aspect of studies of the inborn patterns of animal behavior is that such behavior is not based on a response to perfect perception of the outside world (in our mind) but to an important aspect of it.

Puma Punku
Pumapunku, also called “Puma Pumku” or “Puma Puncu”, is part of a large temple complex or monument group that is part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku, Bolivia. In Aymara, its name means, “The Door of the Cougar”. The processes and technologies involved in the creation of these temples are still not fully understood by modern scholars.

Lee Irwin Pringle Aliens Part 2: Why we should fear them
Our species has achieved so much over the past few centuries. Those who created us know our potential and are quite aware that if left to our own devices, we’ll be orbiting their homeworld in a few centuries time. They have many reasons to fear us, but are safe while they maintain their technological superiority. They also know this won’t last forever, eventually we’ll be on par with them and one day we might even surpass them. Ultimately, it’s not our worst qualities they’re afraid of, but our best.

2012, a Planet up for Grabs  - new article by Rich Anders
On a field trip in Italy Berkley geologist Walter Alvarez found a thin layer of an unusual material at the boundary of cretaceous and tertiary strata. He sent a sample to his father, the Nobel laureate and physicist Luis Alvarez who also worked at Berkely. It turned out that this sample contained a high percentage of Iridium, as found only in asteroids. This solved the mystery of the dinosaurs abruptly disappearing from the fossil record.

The Story behind the Photograph of the Risen Christ
This story describes how a very special photograph of the Risen Christ was manifested by Sri Sathya Sai Baba for a visitor to one of his ashrams known as Prasanthi Nilayam - which means the Abode of Peace - in Puttaparti, India, in 1985.

Female Genital Mutilation
FGM/C is a violation of the physical and psychosexual integrity of girls and inherently contradicts gender equality. There are many international treaties and conventions that condemn harmful practices. A specific focus on female genital mutilation/cutting is found in UN General Assembly Resolution 56/128 on Traditional or Customary Practices Affecting the Health of Women and Girls (2001) and in the Protocol on the Rights of Women in Africa, or Maputo Protocol (2003). Despite of these efforts, at least 2 million girls undergo FGM each year...


On April 14, 2010, the volcano beneath Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier erupted, pushing a cloud of ash and particles 6-9,000 metres into the air. A mountainous plume of ash generated by an Icelandic volcano is costing the global airline industry US$200 million a day in lost revenue, with no clear estimate on when regular service will resume that figure is expected to rise. Concerns the microscopic particles could cause aircraft malfunctions shut down air space over Britain, Ireland, France, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Belgium and other countries. Eurocontrol, the European air traffic agency, said airline service was cut by more than half, with only 11,000 flights expected to operate in Europe - compared to the usual 28,000.

Is our modern technology making us extremely vulnerable to natural disasters?  Don't miss: Science behind the 2012 Doomsday

Iceland Volcano eruption halted air traffic in Europe. Thousands of flights were cancelled.

As electronic technologies have become more sophisticated and more embedded into everyday life, they have also become more vulnerable to solar activity. On Earth, power lines and long-distance telephone cables might be affected by auroral currents, as happened in 1989. Radar, cell phone communications, and GPS receivers could be disrupted by solar radio noise. Experts who have studied the question say there is little to be done to protect satellites from a Carrington-class flare. In fact, a recent paper estimates potential damage to the 900-plus satellites currently in orbit could cost between $30 billion and $70 billion.   Don't miss: Science behind the 2012 Doomsday
