Drones to scan for evidence of ancient civilizations in Amazonia

from popular-archaeology.com: A UK-led initiative to scan the Amazon rainforest for new signs of ancient settlements was announced at the 2015 annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Jose, California. The project, which has already been awarded $1.9m grant from the European Research Council, will include conducting laser scans via drone.

A major goal of the project is to understand the extent to which pre-Columbian populations built and flourished as far back as 3,000 years prior to the arrival of Europeans.

More than 400 geoglyphs have already been exposed by deforestation, suggesting collective, organized human behavior—an argument that has been an ongoing debate within New World archaeology.

"Although humans have lived in Amazonia for the last 13,000 years, until recently, the long-accepted paradigm has been one of a noble savage living in harmony with the ancient forest, with negligible impact on the forest," said Dr. José Iriarte of the University of Exeter, the lead researcher of the project. "Such a view was widely shared, not only among archaeologists, but also by most tropical ecologists whose interpretations of the biodiversity and ecological change were based on the assumption that this forest environment was largely pristine."

The Untold History of Psychedelic Spirituality, Social Control, and the CIA

from GnosticMedia.com: Today there are many names for drug substances that we commonly refer to as “hallucinogens,” “psychedelics,” “psychoactives,” or “entheogens,” et al. But it hasn’t always been that way. The study of the history and etymology of the words for these fascinating substances takes us, surprisingly, right into the heart of military intelligence, and what became the CIA’s infamous MKULTRA mind control program, and reveals how the names themselves were used in marketing these substances to the public, and especially to the youth and countercultures.

The official history has it that the CIA personnel involved in MKULTRA were just dupes, kind of stupid, and, by their egregious errors, the psychedelic revolution “happened” – thwarting their efforts. The claim is that these substances “got out of the CIA’s control.” Words like “blowback” and “incompetence” are often tossed around in such theories regarding the CIA and military intelligence, but without much, if any, supporting evidence.

It’s almost impossible today to have a discussion regarding the actual documents and facts of MKULTRA and the psychedelic revolution without someone interrupting to “inform” you how “it really happened” – even though most often they have never studied anything on the subject.

The New Man—2015 And Beyond

from thesleuthjournal.com: Have you read The Time Machine?  It’s a novella–a short novel–written by H. G. Wells in 1895.  You may have seen the movie, which is a sort of 1960’s sci-fi horror kind of thing.  The story has a young scientifically-minded man build a time machine and then go off into the future.  When he arrives he finds a beautiful, pastoral world populated with thin, passive, willowy people who are ignorant of machinery or writing or any kind of industrial advancement, and are terrified of the dark.  The scientist discovers that there is another race of beings below the surface of the world.  This ape-like, violent group runs the inner machinery of the world in a dark underground and lives off of the raw bodies of any surface beings it can catch during the night.  At the end of the novella the scientist moves further into the future observing the gradual end of the human or humanoid race and the devolution into crustaceans and primordial slime.  The end.

H.G. Wells was a Fabian socialist and wrote the story as an allegory for the control that the capitalists had over the workers.  He believed that the exploitation of workers by big industrialists destroyed both the worker class by creating dependence, and the industrialist owners by making them more bloodthirsty for profits.  As a socialist, Wells broke with the slow-moving Fabians and pressed for a one world government that would provide for all of the needs of the population.  In the 1920’s and 1930’s Wells was a committed Eugenicist who believed that the sterilization of inferior, sub-standard people would be a betterment for society as a whole.

Massacre of Innocence

from www.revisionisthistory.org: In focusing on the subject of abortion, much has been contended from a medical and social perspective. But when we pull the lid off and look at abortion from a spiritual perspective, the implications are far more profound and staggering.

The Bible tells us: "Our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenly places" (Ephesians 6:12).

Our enemy in fighting abortion is not the abortionist, the courts or those who are advocating for abortion rights. Our enemy is the one who was a murderer from the beginning - Satan and the spiritual forces under his command.

Throughout history, certain pagan cultures have sacrificed human infants to demons as a part of a complicated ritual in return for favors asked of them. Few of those involved in abortion today are consciously engaging in child sacrifice, although that is precisely what abortion is - the sacrifice of a human life for the convenience or needs of others. In that respect, it is no less barbaric than the human sacrifice practiced to ensure, for example, a successful harvest. But beyond this, there is a spiritual, satanically inspired dimension that gives frightening realism to abortion's identification with literal child sacrifice.

The Bible supports this idea as often we see a particular action viewed by God as something of a more overtly occultic nature. Rebellion is called witchcraft; immorality is likened to idolatry; hatred is a kin to murder - thus abortion is child sacrifice.

Masonic Roots: Christ, Solomon, or Baal?

from saintsalive.com: You have read in other articles that Freemasonry is a non-sectarian Order embracing principles of all religions. Such boasts of universality is a most predominant portion of Masonic belief. Even with varied religious principles, the Order must have a beginning or "roots" from which it draws.

This article is devoted to the "roots" of Freemasonry. Not those of flesh and blood lineage, but the source from which its philosophy is drawn, in particular, the "Third Degree Ritual" and its true reverence. As to the origin of the Craft, Masons themselves disagree. This lack of unity may stem from personal resentment of evidence or a variety of other reasons. Thus, only those sources deemed reliable must again be our reference.

Found in the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry (Mackey-McClenachan) under the heading "Christianization of Freemasonry" are the first traces of Masonic reverence:
"The principles of Freemasonry preceded the advent of Christianity. Its symbols and its legends are derived from the Solomonic Temple and from the people anterior to that. Its religion comes from the ancient priesthood; its faith was that primitive one of Noah and his immediate descendants."
We see then that the symbols and legends derive from the Solomonic Temple. This aspect refers us to the legend of the Third Degree Ritual which revolves around King Solomon and Hiram, the widows son.

Hasan Bin Sabbah and the Secret Order of Hashishins

from Disinfo.com: The story of Hasan bin Sabbah is a tale of sex, drugs, myth, and murder. A secluded mountain fortress, a paradisial garden, poison dipped daggers, and covert political maneuverings are the ingredients of this alchemical mixture, which is undoubtedly one of the most intriguing true stories ever told.

Hasan bin Sabbah – businessman, scholar, heresiarch, mystic, murderer, ascetic, and political revolutionary – was born in Persia (Iran) around 1034. As a child, the man who would one day claim to be the incarnation of God on earth (probably just another way of saying he was Enlightened) was a diligent student of theology. Supposedly, Hasan was schoolmates with Nizamul Mulk (the future vizier to the sultan of Persia) and Omar Khayyam (the great poet/astronomer/mathematician).

These three future luminaries made a pact whereas, if one of them reached a position of power and influence, he would assist his companions.

“Lucy” : A Movie About Luciferian Philosophy

from VigilantCitizen.com: Luc Besson’s Lucy is a movie about a woman who unlocked the full, 100% potential of her brain power instead of the 10% humans reportedly use. While many viewers were confused by the movie’s odd mix of pseudo-science and action scenes, the core of the movie lies in a whole other realm: It is about the Luciferian philosophy of the occult elite and its futuristic pendant, transhumanism.
