The Mystery Of The 100 Foot Long Snake In Borneo

100 Foot Long Snake In BorneoA while back, an alleged photo of a 100 foot snake in a river in Borneo created quite a stir.  It was claimed that the picture to the left was taken by a member of a disaster relief team that was monitoring flood conditions in the Baleh River in Borneo by helicopter.  The problem is that it is just so easy to fake just about anything these days that we will probably never know if this photo is actually genuine or not.  As we have seen in so many cases in the past, people are so willing to lie just to gain a little notoriety.  But that certainly does not mean that this photo is not real.  It just means that it cannot be confirmed.  If this photograph is genuine, then it is absolutely extraordinary.  The truth is that snakes can still get really, really big in some areas of the world.   (Read More.....)

The Mystery Of Baalbek

BaalbekThe ancient city of Baalbek is one of the greatest archaeological mysteries of all time. Located east of the Litani River in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon, Baalbek is world famous for its exquisitely detailed yet monumentally scaled Roman temple ruins. In Roman times, Baalbek was known as Heliopolis (after the sun god) and it contained some of the largest and most notable Roman temples ever built. In fact, the Romans had constructed an extraordinary temple complex in Baalbek consisting of three separate temples – one for Jupiter, one for Bacchus and one for Venus. But what these Roman temples were built on top of is much more important. These Roman temples were actually built on top of an ancient 5 million square foot platform that was made from some of the largest stones ever used in any construction project in the history of the earth.  In fact, the largest stone found near the Baalbek ruins weighs approximately 1200 tons and is about 64 feet long.  To put that in perspective, that is the equivalent of approximately 156 full size African elephants.  (Read More.....)

The Mystery Of The Ebla Tablets

Ebla TabletsAncient Ebla was located in Northern Syria, approximately halfway between the modern cities of Hamath and Aleppo.  Excavations at that site began in the 1960s, and in the 1970s a series of extraordinary tablets was discovered among the ruins of an ancient palace.  These tablets became known as “The Ebla Tablets”, and they were originally discovered under the direction of two professors from the University of Rome – Dr. Paolo Matthiae and Dr. Giovanni Petinato. At this point, about 17,000 tablets from the ancient Eblaite Kingdom have been recovered.  These tablets appear to have been written during the two last generations of ancient Ebla.  This means that they probably come from some time around 2300 to 2250 B.C.  But what is remarkable about the Ebla tablets is not how old they are, but rather the amazing parallels to the Bible that they contain.

The Mystery Of The Pagan Origin Of Christmas: Jesus Was Not Born On December 25th But A Whole Bunch Of Pagan Gods Were

The Pagan Origins Of Christmas December 25thWhy is Christmas celebrated on December 25th?  Most people assume that it has always been a Christian holiday and that it is a celebration of the birth of Jesus.  But it turns out that Jesus was not born on December 25th.  However, a whole bunch of pagan gods were born on that day.  In fact, pagans celebrated a festival involving a heroic supernatural figure that visits an evergreen tree and leaves gifts on December 25th long before Jesus was ever born.  From its early Babylonian roots, the celebration of the birth or “rebirth” of the sun god on December 25th came to be celebrated under various names all over the ancient world.  You see, the winter solstice occurs a few days before December 25th each year. The winter solstice is the day of the year when daylight is the shortest. In ancient times, December 25th was the day each year when the day started to become noticeably longer.  Thus it was fitting for the early pagans to designate December 25th as the date of the birth or the “rebirth” of the sun.

The Mystery Of The Bizarre Alien Hybrid Creature Born To A Cow In Thailand

Bizarre Alien Hybrid Creature Born To A Cow In ThailandOne of the great mysteries in the world today is why so many freakishly bizarre creatures are being born to animals around the globe.  For example, last year an incredibly bizarre alien hybrid creature was born to a cow in Thailand.  It seems to have the head of a human, the limbs and tail of a cow and yet the color of a grey alien.  So what in the world is it, and why was it born to a cow?  Nobody seems to know.  But what is certain is that something is just not right with that creature.  Unfortunately the creature did not live or much more could have been potentially learned about it.  Could normal birth defects have produced such a bizarre creature?  That certainly seems unlikely.  So what happened?  At this point it is still a mystery.  (Read More.....)

The Mystery Of The Los Lunas Decalogue Stone

The Great Mystery Of The Los Lunas Decalogue StoneMost people have never even heard of the Los Lunas Decalogue Stone, but it is truly one of the greatest historical mysteries of North America.  If you tried to tell most history teachers that the Ten Commandments arrived in North America long before Christopher Columbus did, most of them would tell you that you are absolutely nuts.  But that is apparently exactly what happened.   The existence of the Los Lunas Decalogue Stone suggests that there is a whole lot more to the history of North America than we have been told.  So just what is the Los Lunas Decalogue Stone?  It is is a huge flat stone on the side of a mountain in New Mexico.  The mountain is known as Hidden Mountain, and it is located near Los Lunas, New Mexico – approximately 35 miles south of Albuquerque.  It is what is written on this massive stone that is so remarkable.  This very large stone actually has the Ten Commandments inscribed on it in ancient paleo-Hebrew script with a few letters of ancient Greek mixed in.
