City of Heracleion sunk into the Mediterranean sea 1,200 years ago 2013

Heracleion was an ancient Egyptian city near Alexandria. It was known as early as the 12th century BC but its importance grew during the waning days of the pharaohs, the late period. Herakleion was Egypt's main port in the time of the pharaohs.

It was famous because it was believed that Helen of Troy and Hercules had visited the city, and that the city had even gained its name from Hercules. There was also a large temple dedicated to the Greek hero at the city center. Pharaoh Nectanebo made many additions to the temple in the 4th century B.C. In the 6th or 7th century A.D.

It sank, probably due to major earthquakes and floods. The ruins submerged in the sea were finally located and rediscovered by the French underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio in 2001.

In cooperation with the Egyptian Ministry for Antiquities and the support of the Hilti Foundation, the team has recovered important information on the city’s ancient landmarks, such as the grand temple of god Amun and his son Khonsou and the city’s harbours.

Now archeologists are unearthing the mysteries of Heracleion, uncovering amazingly well-preserved artifacts.

So far, 64 ancient shipwrecks and more than 700 anchors have been unearthed from the mud of the bay, the news outlet notes. Other findings include gold coins, weights from Athens (which have never before been found at an Egyptian site) and giant tablets inscribed in ancient Greek and ancient Egyptian.

Researchers have also uncovered a variety of religious artifacts in the sunken city, including 16-foot stone sculptures thought to have adorned the city's central temple and limestone sarcophagi that are believed to have contained mummified animals. Photo's at franckgoddio.org

Grant Cameron Discovers Secret Leaked Document on Live Alien in Mexico

The leak of a 15-page note by Dr. Eric Davis of his 2002 meeting with Vice Admiral Thomas Wilson represents the most significant UFO leak of the 21st Century.


The document, a transcript of a conversation between Astrophysicist Eric Davis and Admiral Thomas Wilson , states explicitly that Admiral Wilson was told that a Special Access Program has in their possession an alien vehicle not made of this Earth.

Besides Grant Cameron discovered that there is another secret document that claims a living Alien was captured in Mexico!

Below the video in which Grant Cameron talks about the living alien that was captured in Mexico, while Richard Dolan informs us about the latest development in the so-called 'Wilson Leak'.

Senators are now jumping on the UFO Disclosure wagon!

Three U.S. senators received a classified Pentagon briefing on Wednesday about UFOs and a series of reported encounters by the Navy with unidentified aircraft, according to congressional and government officials — part of a growing number of requests from members of key oversight committees writes New York Times and Politico.


“If naval pilots are running into unexplained interference in the air, that’s a safety concern Senator Warner believes we need to get to the bottom of,” his spokesperson, Rachel Cohen, said in a statement.

The interest in “unidentified aerial phenomenon” has grown since revelations in late 2017 that the Pentagon had set up a program to study the UFO phenomenon.

The Navy has played a prominent role in light of the testimony of F/A-18 pilots and other personnel operating with the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier battle group off California in 2004 - 'the now famous Nimitz incident with the so-called 'Tic Tac' and the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the Atlantic i…

DNA Is Code But Who Coded It?

Is the software that runs life the result of accumulated copying errors? Or does it require a programmer?


This episode of Science Uprising examines how Microsoft founder Bill Gates, geneticist and entrepreneur Craig Venter, and even evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins all acknowledge that DNA is like software.

As Stephen Meyer says here, we know from having lived in and observed the world that "information always arises from an intelligent source." Simply applying that knowledge to the biological information in DNA seems to command an inference to intelligent design.

"If our DNA code is more complex than any man-made software, where did it come from and how was that software created?

People featured in this episode include Stephen Meyer, PhD, Director of the Center for Science and Culture at Discovery Institute and author of Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design; and Douglas Axe, Maxwell Visiting Professor of Molecular Biology at Biola Un…

Hiker films a strange object near Area 51

An unidentified flying object has been filmed from a mountain overlooking top secret US air base Area 51 by a hiker while hiking just miles away Area 51.


The hiker states: "Area 51 from Tikaboo Peak the base is very active. A great look into Area 51 just as the snow stopped."

"To get the best video, and pictures of Area 51 out there, I do feel the weather had a lot to do with the great shots I was able to get. Between the snowstorms, and clouds the base would just illuminate long enough for me to film, and take pictures."

 RT America’s Natasha Sweatte reports on this sighting.
