Hello. Wanted to put this bit of info on here for anyone who is interested. Like many, I am unsure of AB's authenticity. However, here are some
interesting things I found today:
Someone PLEASE correct me if I am wrong about this, but didn't AB give a link to an "impact map?" And, if so, was that link
If so, it might be of interest to know that this is an obvious subdomain of www.svgblocks.com...
. Svgblocks.com is a site that talks about a new
mapping/cartographic technology. Nothing on the main domain even hints at AB or the impact map. Ok. Also, the main domain is not a free webspace
provider or anything along those lines. It seems to be a simple business site. So, I would assume then that the only person who would have access to
change or add anything to the site would be the owner of the site. This is where it gets interesting: If that is the case, a simple DNS search of
svgblocks.com gives out the owner's name as a Marvin Schmelling from Joshua Tree, California. Then, a simple web search of his name, turns up a page
where his name is listed as a "competition winner" in a contest. Same name and location for Schmelling. Link is here:
Ok. From what I can make out, the competition was to guess what some publicity event was, surrounding a book release for a book entitled "The Shift
of the Ages." This book has been described as similar to "The Celestine Prophecy." Here is what "The Shift of the Ages" is about:
"In the final moments before the turn of the last century, the world paused, held its breath and waited for the prophecies of the ancients to come
true. But nothing happened. Only a select few knew that the Gregorian calendar was out by twelve years.
Come on a fast-paced adventure about a man who is awoken to a memory from his distant past - a past that will take him to another place and time - a
past that will reveal humanities potential future.
It is December 2008. Erratic weather seasons have been occurring globally for years and continue to worsen. Scientists, politicians and religious
leaders worldwide are theorizing and contradicting each other, offering varying explanations from global warming to the beginning of Armageddon.
A mysterious crystal-domed medallion has been discovered at a secret military base in Antarctica. Five years previously, several identical medallions
had been unearthed at unrelated ancient sites throughout the world. People were deeply affected by the symbols, stirred by a long lost collective
memory of humanities distant past. It was claimed the medallions were over 13,000 years old and contained knowledge about celestial transits,
indicating the ending of a 26,664-year galactic cycle that will conclude in the year 2012.
Answers to this riddle are about to be revealed by Jake Wakeman, an enigmatic ex-military colonel, who becomes the reluctant emissary of a message
left behind by the ancient medallion keepers - a message of hope that could transform humanity into a utopian civilization during this turbulent time.
But there are dark forces at work that will do everything within their power to stop him . . . "
Ok everyone, does a lot of this sound familiar to AB's set up? Here is yet one more interesting tidbit:
"The Shift of the Ages" is published and originates from.... Australia.
I would love anyone's input on this.
