10,000 year old structure found in Canadian lake

March 19, 2008

"In the Spring of 2005, Canadian divers conducting a project in MacDonald Lake at the Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve, came upon an ancient stone structure - 40 feet below the present lake level. Initially the structure was considered to have been ferried by glaciers created during the last ice age, thousands of years ago and dumped where they happened to melt at the end of one of the more recent cold-freezes.

There’s been several ice ages in the history of the Earth. What’s commonly called ‘the ice age,’ is actually the most recent one, which began about two million years ago, and was characterized by cold, and relatively warm phases. Out of that, there have been four major continental glaciations recorded in North America. The last began about 70,000 years ago, and ended about 8,000 BC. At the peak of the last glaciation, approximately 97% of Canada was covered by ice.

We’re currently in an interglacial phase that could last for another 10,000 or more years.

The discovery of this mystery rock formation (an assembly of now seven rocks) were thought to be compound perched erratics (found in northern North America), where 2 or even 3 rocks happened to land on top of each other, leaving behind a natural structure. However, when geologists and archaeologists saw images of the object - a 1,000 pound, elongated and south pointing rock sitting on baseball-sized stones at each end, which in turn, were resting on a massive, several thousand pound slab on top of the ledge, they expressed doubts about its natural origin.

Foremost, the straight edges and lack of roundness, as would characterize rocks scoured by glaciers, prompted them to discard the erratic theory. But could the structure be of human origin? If so, how could that be established?

Subsequent dives closely examined the structure for any signs of the use of tools, decorative images or other irregularities, to no avail. The thick layer of silt covering the vertical surfaces suggests that certainly within living memory no human has ever touched the structure.

Geologists have now pointed to a dramatic drought, which gripped Eastern North America between 9000 and 7000 BCE. Conditions were so dry during that time that lake levels in the Great Lakes were up to 50 meters lower and inland lakes, like McDonald Lake, which were still fed by spring melt and summer rain water, were assumed several dozen feet lower than their present water levels.

Many questions remain about the site, but knowing that this structure is possibly 11,000 years old, will it go overlooked?

Will it go without much notice, as the Indian site of Poompuhur has been, where a possibly man-made ancient structure lies hidden at the bottom of the Bay of Bengal? Will it be ignored as Japan’s ancient underwater megaliths have been; stone formations resembling a step pyramid, that lie just off the coast of Yonaguni Jima, an island in Japan’s Ryukyu archipelago? A structure, that if proven man-made could only have been built approximately 10,000 years ago, when that area of the world lay above the sea.

What about the ruins found in Lima, Peru, described as the ‘Tropical Stonehenge,’ an astronomical observatory; giant stone carvings, apparently 4,200 years old, that align with sunrise and sunset on Dec. 21? Findings like these don’t correlate well, with what you’ve been taught, and for some reason, it seems almost forbidden to know. Is it not obvious that history changing archeology is passed off as irrelevant when found to not fit the current historical mold? Not a second thought given, but why?

Is it not possible to imagine an advanced culture - forgotten in myth? Has it not been man that from 1 AD to 2000 AD, went from horses and swords, to airplanes and nuclear bombs? It took two thousand years for man to develop the power to level cities at the push of a switch. Our current historical graph states we’ve had that opportunity five times, but, if there’s evidence that man has been around longer, how many other opportunities have we had to develop into an advanced society? How much of the ‘legends’ can we believe to be true?"

Here's the Nabta Playa find. It pretty much seems to be a case of the ancients documenting the precession of the equinoxes from way back:

I have often noticed that the sun numinously shines through the ceiling of many churches. Some more obvious than others as to how. In the Episcopal Church I attended over 6 years ago, I noticed it shining through, but I wasn't sure how since there wasn't exactly a dome, but rather and upside down ark with a small stained glass window towards the north end.

There are many symbols in the archatic of Episcopal Churches and we were informed about these (it is indeed a symbol of an upside-down ark.

Anyway, back to the sun...

Not only that, it seems the Catholic Church has been studying the stars for centuries. They even have at least one observatory, always have. Yet, when Galileo came out with factual news, they excamunicated him. So, I'm beginning to think they knew many things but didn't tell the common people. They hid the truth from them.

Adam’s Calendar

The Oldest Man-made Structures on Earth.

Older than the Giza pyramids

Older than Stonehenge

A 75,000 year-old stone calendar - In the cradle of humankind

A new discovery of an ancient circular monolithic stone calendar site in Mpumalanga has proven to be at least 75,000 years old, pre-dating any other structure found to date. Southern Africa holds some of the deepest mysteries in all of human history. What we are told is that at around 60,000 years ago the early humans migrated from Africa and populated the rest of the world.

Who were these first humans? What did they do? And where did they disappear to?

It estimated that there are over 100 000 ancient stone ruins scattered throughout the mountains of southern Africa. Artefacts that have been recovered from these ruins show a long and extended period of settlement that spans to over 200,000 years. The most spectacular examples of these ancient ruins are RIGHT HERE within walking distance. Modern historians have been speculating about the origins of these ruins, often calling them ‘cattle kraal of little historic importance’. The truth of the matter is that closer scientific inspection shows that we actually know very little about these spectacular ancient ruins. It is a great tragedy that thousands have already been destroyed through sheer ignorance but forestry and farmers have now started to protect these ruin. Adam’s Calendar is the flagship among these ruins because we can date this monolithic calendar with relative certainty to at least 75,000 years of age based on a number of scientific evaluations. Adam’s Calendar also presents the first tangible evidence of consciousness among the earliest humans in the ‘Cradle of humankind’. The site is built along the same longitudinal line as Great Zimbabwe and the Great Pyramid. It is also aligned with the rise of Orion’s belt some 75,000 years ago.

Adam’s Calendar

This is possibly the only example of a functional, mostly in-tact monolithic stone calendar in the world."

http://www.adamscalendar.com/Welcome.html

http://www.adamscalendar.com/Movie.html

"This remarkable stone structure was originally a large circular structure resembling but predating Stonehenge by many thousands of years. Adam's calendar is built along the same longitudinal line as Great Zimbabwe and the Great Pyramid. It is also aligned with the rise of Orion's belt when it rose horizontally on the horizon some 75,000 years ago. Adam's calendar takes us further back in time closer to the emergence of Homo sapiens, than any other structure ever found to date, and it will force historians and archaeologist to reconsider ancient human activity and consciousness."

That would explain Nabta Playa a little better. It looks like a "johny-come-lately" site in comparison to the Adam's calendar site.

New discoveries indicate ancient British sun worship

"Several newly discovered megalithic sites in England reflect an arrangement similar to that of the famous ancient British site of Stonehenge, including its archaeoastronomical alignments. The alignments at these sites marking sunrise and sunset at the summer and winter solstices are naturally suggestive of sun worship, which can be found in many cultures globally dating back thousands of years....."

Haven't seen this one here. Obviously, everyone wants to claim "the world's oldest."

World's oldest observatory found in China

(Xinhua)
Updated: 2005-10-31 07:05

Chinese archaeologists said they have found the world's oldest observatory, dating back to some 4,100 years ago, in north China's Shanxi Province.

The ancient observatory in the Taosi relics site in Shanxi Province is at least 2,000 years older than the 1,000-year-old observatory built by the Maya in central America, said He Nu, a research follow with the Institute of Archaeology of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

He told Xinhua on Sunday that the observatory, built at the end of the primitive society, "was not only used for observing astronomical phenomena but also for sacrificial rites."

The remains of the observatory, in the shape of a semicircle 40meters in diameter in the main observation platform and 60 meters in diameter in the outer circle, were made by rammed earth in three circles.

Archaeologists inferred that 13 stone pillars, at least four meters tall, stood on the foundation of the first circle originally, forming 12 gaps between them.

"The ancient people observed the direction of sunrise through the gaps and distinguished the different seasons of the year," said He....

The Taosi relics site, dated back to 4,300 years ago, is located in Xiangfen County, Linfen City of Shanxi Province, and covers an area of 3 million square meters. It is believed to be a settlement of the period of the five legendary rulers (2,600 BC-1,600 BC) in Chinese history.

"Archaeologists unearth Neolithic henge at Stonehenge.

Image

Archaeologists have discovered a second henge at Stonehenge, described as the most exciting find there in 50 years.

The circular ditch surrounding a smaller circle of deep pits about a metre (3ft) wide has been unearthed at the world-famous site in Wiltshire.

Archaeologists conducting a multi-million pound study believe timber posts were in the pits.

Project leader Professor Vince Gaffney, from the University of Birmingham, said the discovery was "exceptional"."

My latest Examiner article -

World's oldest observatory found?

Every so often we read exciting headlines proclaiming that the "world's oldest this or that" has been discovered by archaeologists. In 2005, for example, Chinese media declared that the "world's oldest observatory" had been found at Taosi in the Shanxi Province, dating to some 4,100 years ago. Other recently discovered sites have also been pronounced the "world's oldest astronomical observatory," including one in Goseck, Germany, that was founded almost 7,000 years ago and that likewise is astronomically aligned, causing it to be called a "sun temple" as well as the "German Stonehenge."...
