I'm not into the "paranormal" and ghosts and such. But, I do follow the UAP hubbub and the arguments about the ages of the Earth's "ancient ruins" and such.

Lately, the big thing is the age of the Sphinx.

There is a new study done by real live geologists who say that the geologic 'erosion' age of the Sphinx and its enclosure is around 800,000 years. Lots of the erosion is from water/wave action.

Some years ago, the pot started to get stirred when a geologist and his buddy where touring the Sphinx and, not knowing anything more about it than the average Joe, were stunned at the amount of water erosion they saw. "No, no, no, that erosion is from sand! It was dry here when the Egyptians built it." But, another 'modern' example of just how Wrong science MUST be!! LOL

And, now, , , , , out in the UFO/UAP wilds, , , , there is an increasing current in 'consciousness', ESP, 'visions' and 'remote viewing' and such. And, it is getting more into the 'mainstream'. Many people are sorta kinda 'don't have a clue but, Something IS going on!" Dr. Garry Nolan has found a small part of certain people's brain that 'activates/shows increased activity' when people 'feel' something. Pretty much to the point where he can analysis the report of a US Military pilot who not only saw an UAP but also felt it (wherein others there only saw but did not 'feel'), and then perform a physical brain scan on the pilot and, , , yep, theres that spot! It is the spot in our brains that 'sees' what is happening and decides what to do before you "yourself" has a chance to react.

The present-day Sahara was wet during the last ice age. There's a good recent book on the subject. Wikipedia has an article that doesn't seem a model of good writing, but its section on "water erosion" looks good.

Things changed. There was less water.

This is kinda deep, but it does explain a few things.

I have a nut relative that says Stonehenge is fake. I told him that's a hell of a lot of effort for something that doesn't matter.

Some people should stay away from the internet.

Jorge Luis Borges's story "The Babylonian Lottery" was standard reading for Spanish classes. A world where the lottery gets so complex that no one can make sense of what's going on.

Dwarka, India !!!!

Check it out.

120 feet under the Arabian Sea. Was submerged "6000 to 7000" years ago. Recent carbon dating and such put it at 'at least' 9500 years old!!!

These are real 'ruins' with columns, statues and such, not just 'stone' that looks like it 'could have been worked'.

Read Graham Hancock's "Fingerprints of the Gods" or watch his series on Netflix "Ancient Apocalypse"

If you're not already familiar with him/these, you will enjoy them.....

Capitalism is based on the ridiculous notion that you can enjoy limitless growth in a closed, finite system.

In biology, such behavior of cells is called "cancer".
