Each night the moon makes its majestic appearance. Without this luminous sphere, our planet would be a vastly different place. It is responsible for the ocean’s tides, seasons, temperatures and Earth’s very rotation. Both humans and animals are affected by the lunar presence. Scientists have theories about the planetary object’s origins yet all remain mere speculation. Some researchers disagree with current hypotheses and have proposed an intriguing conclusion. They argue the moon is an artificial satellite placed into orbit by advanced extraterrestrials.
“The Moon is bigger than it should be, apparently older than it should be and much lighter in mass than it should be. It occupies an unlikely orbit and is so extraordinary that all existing explanations for its presence are fraught with difficulties and none of them could be considered remotely watertight.”
-Alan Butler, Who Built the Moon?
Lunar Lore Throughout History
While the notion that the moon is a synthetic celestial body may seem unimaginable, it has been discussed for thousands of years. Our ancient ancestors who had no contact with one another all shared matching stories about a “time before the moon”. Greek philosophers Aristotle and Plutarch referenced an age where the astronomical glowing orb did not exist. In Africa, Zulu legends chronicle how the planetoid was similar to an egg with its yoke removed. Tribespeople believed this hollowed heavenly lantern was brought here by advanced alien beings. Indigenous Colombians also recounted a pre-lunar civilization in their writings. These diverse groups lament that when the transcendental shining ball arrived a terrible cataclysm unfolded, nearly eradicating humanity entirely. Earth’s population was supposedly reduced to a single race. Modern science has ascertained that human beings share one common ancestor: Mitochondrial Eve. Might it be plausible ancient fables may be in fact be knowledge of events long forgotten?
Rang Like a Bell & Strange Sounds Emitting
Prior to mankind’s historic cosmic ventures, Apollo 10 traveled to the dark side of the moon. During radio transcripts, the astronauts speak of hearing “eerie outer space music”. Bizarre electromagnetic tones similar to the frequencies recorded inside Saturn’s rings were clearly audible. A dreadful otherworldly orchestra encompassed the ears of every voyaging passenger. NASA affiliates quickly dismissed the acoustic oddity and blamed radio waves interfering with the satellite’s magnetic field. However, their argument is not applicable as the planetary body does not possess a magnetic field.
National Parks and Forests are renown for their serene beauty. They are places in which we reconnect with nature and bask in awe-inspiring surroundings. Yet there is a dark underbelly to these pristine locations. Thousands of people who visit America’s picturesque federal lands will never return. Many of them disappear under bizarre and unusual circumstances. David Paulides, a retired police officer and prolific investigator, has chronicled hundreds of bone-chilling cases in his series Missing 411. He discovered the Department of Interior is engaged in a massive coverup, claiming they possess “no list” missing persons. Obtaining such a document would cost the requester over one million dollars.
There are currently far more questions than answers. Whatever sinister force is claiming hundreds of lives remains unknown. However, there is a clear and concise pattern repeatedly seen amongst all demises. With this information, we can better prevent falling prey to future incidents. The next time you plan on exploring any of America’s government-owned territories please keep the following tips in mind.
Artwork has been created by human beings for thousands of years. Long before written language, drawings were used to chronicle history. One particularly intriguing aspect of ufology is a repeated presence of bizarre crafts and strange creatures throughout numerous depictions. Ancient civilizations with no contact or communication amongst themselves often illustrated eerily similar subjects: UFOs and extraterrestrials. Did our ancestors witness physical phenomena which they deemed worthy of documenting for future generations? That conclusion is for the observer to decide.
For decades, the existence of Sasquatch has been highly debated. Skeptics scoff at the idea of North American bipedal hominids while believers cite supporting evidence including print castings, hair samples and video footage. Sightings of these enigmatic forest dwellers date back centuries, spanning across nearly every continent on Earth. However, society continues to dismiss the cryptid as merely a mythological creature or hoaxer’s feeble attempt at trickery. Yet would public perception shift if government agents produced a document listing Bigfoot as a legitimate species? Several decades ago, that precise scenario occurred.
In 1975 the United States Army Corps of Engineers debuted Washington Environmental Atlas, a manual which provided comprehensive information about the region. The book required over three years of research and a budget of $200,000 (which inflation equates to nearly one million dollars in 2019). Comprising the 114-page encyclopedia are maps, geological data, and zoological reports. An excerpt from the paperback declares: “The Washington Environmental Atlas identifies and describes many resources and amenities important to the citizens of the State of Washington. The environment is described not only in terms of the preferences and values of people and agencies, but also in terms of the structure and function of basic ecosystems. Accordingly, significant effort was devoted to a map overlay of ecological life zones, species lists and habitats.”
“Ages ago an Indian Town on Lake Wailes lake was plagued with raids by a huge gator. The town’s great warrior Chief and the gator were killed in a final battle that created the huge swampy depression nearby. The chief was buried on its north side. Later pioneer haulers coming from the old army trail atop the ridge above found their horses laboring here… at the foot of the ridge… and called it Spook hill. Is it the gator seeking revenge, or the chief protecting his land?”
Long before Orlando’s infamous amusement parks, Winter Haven was a popular destination for vacationers. Eager tourists would flock to Cypress Gardens, a botanical wonderland for floral enthusiasts. Unfortunately, like many beloved relics from forgotten eras, modern-day capitalism has turned over these former treasures to the highest bidder. Merlin Entertainments purchased the property several years ago. What was once a majestic natural conservatory is now “Legoland”— a sprawling city of monstrous plastic cubes. However, one quirky roadside attraction remains in a nearby town. Best of all: the admission is completely free!
