Oh the connections are there, no doubt but the main focus here is the older Biblical/Sumerian references and there is too much data on the pyramids to
mix it all in to one thread
though we do tend to wander from time to time.
Hard not to because the internet links stuff together for us..
"Oh, the world is not ready!" And YOU are? What makes them so special that they're somehow "ready" to know something extremely important
about our distant past, but the rest of us are not?
Well I tend to agree that the whole world is not ready for the 'truth', but save for maybe a select few, I don't trust those that DO have the
answers to have our best interests at heart either.
So what to do? One could say there are good 'illuminati' and those that choose 'the darkside'. May sound cliche, but it is the reality...
Those we call the PTB are naturally on that dark path. Currently though both sides are about equal in strength. You can know this to be true by the
simple fact that the PTB have not got absolute control of everything. If they had we would not be here talking about it.
The other issue is the 'common man' tends to lump every esoteric group under the same banner. True, secrecy breeds such thoughts but very few take
time to dig for the facts. Sadly this apathy works in favor of the dark side... the fear and distrust gives them power over you.
People like Dr Hawass have the goal to protect the heritage of his people, noble enough but at some point you have to accept reality (like the white
man tombs in China) and many in the esoteric societies still have that fellowship thing "I know something you don't know.." thinking, been bred in
by the very need for secrecy in the old days, hard to break out of.
Don't forget that before one could get killed for ideas like we talk about here daily... and I suspect a few here wished you could still do that
You personally, and many of those that are on ATS could most likely handle the truth... but even here look at the trolls, debunkers and just plain
idiots that seem to need to disrupt any thread about anything... You think they are ready to handle the 'truth'
As an example... lets say for argument that the truth is that some alien reptilian species did in fact breed us as slaves, and there is no god.. just
these 'master' who are coming back soon...
You think the Muslim world would be ready for that revelation? The Christians? The Jews? You don't think that maybe a truth exists that would throw
the world into chaos?
Me? I say 'bring it on!' But then I have my tent city, my armor and my medieval skills to fall upon... and a ready made support group
This is the MOST frustrating thing in all of archaeology to me. Arrogant people thinking they're somehow more ready than everyone else for the
information. I believe I have a right to know where I came from, what mistakes my ancestors made, and thus what I might do better - and also any
important discoveries they may have made that might help in my (and others') daily life!
I agree with you on both points. Its why I am here to dig for 'truth' despite the flak. We do have a right and a need to know...
Archaeologist are my pet peeve. When they find something that messes up their theory, they discard it, hide it or their have been cases where evidence
was actually destroyed. The Baghdad battery is one of the best example. They were hidden in a basement until a new curator snooped around and found
them. That warehouse in Indiana Jones? I hear that belongs to the Smithsonian and is full of stuff you and I would love to look at.
But I went to look at a mineral collection in Toronto donated by a famous collector.. I wasn't allowed to view save that which was on display. The
reason? I wasn't an academic, so didn't qualify to see them, even though I have Geology and have been a collector and cutter all my life...
But the 'Secret Knowledge" That is not so hard to get... simply choose and esoteric society and join
Then YOU get to be called "Illuminati"
I will look at your dream post a little later today
