Symbols as Language 25,000 years later –

800px-Lascaus,_MegalocerosSome of the oldest symbols and graphical images are found in the Lascaux Caves, a complex of caves in southwestern France famous for its Paleolithic cave paintings. The original caves are located near the village of Montignac, in the department of Dordogne. They contain some of the best-known Upper Paleolithic art. These paintings are estimated to be 17,300 years old.  They primarily consist of images of large animals, most of which are known from fossil evidence to have lived in the area at the time. 

Symbols have survived the test of time.  While driving to a meeting today, I realized just how much we still rely on symbols as a language.  Yes, we have evolved past our Paleolithic days, but isn’t it funny the use of symbols to tell words or give directions still exist even today?

We are surrounded by symbols and the use of symbols to understand basic directions and instructions.  What made me think of this was when I had pulled up to a traffic light and on the ground around me I noticed an array of symbols.

All kinds of shapes and sizes, and even in different colors.  Each representing a set of 0803151136complex instructions and information yet displayed out in a pictogram image or symbol.  The city is installing new traffic lights and expanding the roadway, and the survey crew had just come through and used colored spray paints to leave information and instructions for the new in line – the construction crews.

Contained in a few strokes as possible was a wealth of information.  Information which would guide the next set of people through as to exactly what was going on and what was to be expected of them.  At it’s core, is this not what treasure symbols are to use today?

At one time someone came through an area and left marking as to what was going on, who was there, what was to be expected and how to go about it and here before my eyes are the same sort of symbols.  Yes, the are not pointing to gold, but you can bet they are detailing copper wires below, or priceless fiber lines with a warning not to cut such lines lest all hell break loose.  I thought to myself – how ironic that symbology is as valid today as it was 1,000 5,000 or even 17,000 years ago.

0803151137Each curve, dodge or squiggle has a meaning and even though each hand that placed the symbols would make them subtly different, those coming in behind would clearly understand the meanings and directions.

The people coming behind today are the construction crews, 0803151138engineers and such, but none the less they are versed in this “secret symbol” language which provides all they need to know.

It still amazes me how much we still use symbols, pictograms and glyphs to convey stories, meaning and instructions.  Who knows, maybe some ancient symbols we wonder about today are erection instructions of which stone to stack where, versus “find gold here”?  No one really knows, that is why research and trial and error are paramount in symbology.

But how amazing and simple it is we can still communicate very complex instructions though a minimal of symbols.

Take the photo below.  This one photo conveys depth, route and the exact lines of what is hidden from sight below and it accomplish such with minimal strokes.  Symbols are amazing and just may convey more than we ever imagined!  What say you?


Are DNA and Science making Archaeology Archaic?

Daily newspapers are revealing startling new facts about our History, however it is not to the benefit of the imagined legacy of archaeologist who fancy themselves the true authors of history and the “modern” Indiana Jones types.  In fact, the trend is more like Indiana Jones and his University Buddies (not the adventure types) are challenging the guys from Big Bang Theory and the crowd involved in the Big Bang Theory movement is sending Team Jones running for cover.


Now in my formation of a proper analogy, I in no way want to bring shame on Indiana Jones. Why?  Archaeologist do NOT explore and see truth and facts like Indiana Jones. In fact a modern Archaeologist would of NEVER went in search of the Crystal Skull.  Why? Archaeologists do not search for things mythical and things we do not understand.  That died back in the 1930’s, ironically part of the time period Indiana Jones was set in.  Nope, exploration stopped and as it became more “University Institutionalized” Archaeologist went from trying to make sense of finds to trying to protect their tenure, retirement and reputation by trying to “fit” finds into the “approved time line and story about history”.  That is not exploring, discovering and recording history; that’s a “political correct pandering pundit”.

So, keeping Indiana Jones reputation and image in tact, knowing modern archaeology is not about exploring, answering, adventure and finding the truth whatever it may be (remember the moment Indiana Jones in todays system would of given his report on the Ark of the Covenant and what “supernaturally happened” with the Nazi’s on that remote island; Indy would of be FIRED!), todays Archaeologists are all about preserving the status quo of history we have been sold.


However, those Big Bang types are changing the system.  Science and scientific testing are proving quite possibly that not only is all our account of history is wrong, but they are proving that modern Archaeologist are only “politically correct pundits” for a severely broken and dysfunctional system which puts more value on toting the political correct party line than really making discoveries of the truth about out history.  Granted the “Andy the Angry Archaeologist” types will always be around and even after all the science comes in and forces the mass rewriting of History and all of our History books; Andy the Angry Argumentative Archaeologists will still be there saying we are all wrong and the science is flawed and only Archaeologist can tell us what happened in history.  The funny thing about it is the Archaeology business if full of “A’s”  Yes A’s – no not like you are thinking.  I mean it like this – (4A) Andy the Angry and Argumentative Archaeologist, will always use the Alliterative Approach.  What is the Alliterative Approach?  It is the historic was Archaeologist battle every new find and idea.  They use the prescribed 4F Alliteration Theory:  Flawed, Fake, Forged and Fraud approach.

If they KNOW it is making their theories obsolete they use the 4F attack.

  • Your information or research is flawed!
  • Your site or language discovery was faked!
  • Your artifact is a forgery!
  • You are a fraud!

As for me, I have my very own 4F rebuttal to Andy the Angry and Argumentative Archaeologists when he deploys his 4F Alliteration Technique and mine is:

  • Archaeology has FAILED us!
  • Science is the FUTURE!
  • You are FURIOUS your profession is going away!
  • FINALLY, man can let science prove the FACTS!

To show you just how this battle is currently being fought and won by science, I offer up an irrefutable science which is kicking Archaeology’s proverbial ASS! (ASS being another acronym for Archaeology Theory – Archaic  Sycophant Snobs).  The Science? DNA.

Here is why DNA Science (the Big Bang Guys) and trumping Archaic Archaeology.  There is ZERO way to tinker with DNA results. The 4F Alliteration Refutal Theory does not work simply because there is NO WAY the results are flawed, faked, forged or a fraud.  Those genes ARE WHAT THEY ARE and no one went back in time 25,000 to 50,000 years ago to just try and pull off a hoax on modern mankind.  The science is perfect and perfect enough it can put a man in prison and take his life by execution. Soon it is bye bye to archaeological theories and HELLO SCIENCE to setting the record straight!

So, allow me to introduce you to some DNA studies presented by avocational Researcher Bonnie Goodine.  Mrs. Goodine is leading the DNA research and charge of getting the whole Oak Island, Nova Scotia history corrected and viewed in the correct perspective.  Better said, Mrs. Goodine is using BIG BANG DNA SCIENCE to put the old archaic archaeology system in it’s place when it comes to “did ancient societies sail to and populate the America’s thousands of years ago?”.  Simply put, the science does not lie.  Below is an article of the facts as presented by Mrs. Goodine: (Btw, Mrs. Goodine did an amazing radio interview on this topic for the Oak Island Archives and I have the link below and you should listen to it! Over 240,000 have already and shows how the world is catching up on the theory and trickery of Archaeology.)

H2 DNA reveals the Ancient populating of the Americas, by Bonnie Goodine.

bonnie memeScientists categorize DNA into a number of so-called haplogroups, based on their similarities and differences.You can think of them like blood types.  Neanderthal nuclear DNA does not make you a Neanderthal.  They don’t affect you or change you, but they can be identified at the molecular level.  DNA mutates at a certain predictable rate.  Its like a clock ticking, but with a clock recording every tick.  It is possible to judge when populations originally diverged, based on how different is the DNA.  If you count up the mutations, knowing what rate, they occurred,you literally have a genetic clock, explained Douglas Wallace, a professor of molecular medicine at the University of California, Irvine.

DNA analysis on Native Americans began in the 1980’s.Early results showed the expected Siberan-Asia ancestry as was expected.  They were in for a surprise!
The conventional wisdom to explain the peopling of the Americas is that migrants crossed from northeast Asia to Alaska around 13,000 years ago to become the ancestors of today’s Native Americans.  mtDNA analysis has revealed some unexpected links between the Mediterranean and North America.  When scientists analyzed the mtDNA of living Native Americans, they found about 3% had mtDNA from a haplogroup called X. Some populations, such as the Ojibwa from the Great Lakes region, have a 25% concentration of X.
Recent European genetic admixture cannot explain the presence of haplogroup X in the Americas.  First, if the occurrence of hX were the result of female gene flow from Europeans, then other, more common European mtDNA haplogroups should also be present in the northern Native Americans, they are not.   Second, the Native American and European mt DNAs are very different and are connected only through an ancient common ancestor.  Hence, Native American and European haplogroup X mtDNAs diverged long ago.  Native American hX, mt DNAs encompass substantial continent specific, implying a ancient arrival in America.
The best evidence of X2 in North America occurs in one Ojibwa subject, whose closest genetic relatives are members of a Mediterranean population, rather than any native subject in North America; despite the thousands of years and thousands of miles that separate them.  The family of languages to which the Potawatomi, Ottawa, and Ojibwa languages belong is intimately related to the Afro-Asiatic family of languages. Interestingly enough, these same populations share a genetic relationship, as well.  The greatest frequency of one particular genetic trait, mitochondrial haplogroup X2 (hereafter mt hap X2), among North American Indians occurs in the Ojibwa Indians (25%). And the greatest occurrence of mt hap X2 in Eurasia is among the Druze of southern Lebanon and northern Israel (11%). 
This analysis confirmed that hX is present in both modern and Native American and European populations.  For Native American, hX encompasses 25% of the Ojibwa, 5% of the Sioux, 11-13 % of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth, 7% of the Navajo and 5% of the Yakima.  The distribution of this hX,among the Native Americans appears to be restricted to northern Amerindian populations.
The apparent absence of hX in northern Asia, parallels, in part, the situation already seen for Native American mtDNA haplogroup B. However, unlike haplogroup X, haplogroup B is present in Tibetans, Koreans, Japanese and Mongolians.  Moreover, haplogroup B is widely distributed among North, Central and South American populations; whereas haplogroup X is restricted to some of the most northern American populations. Its presence in the Navajo but not in other  Na Dene populations suggest that in a manner similar to that characterizing some nuclear-gene markers (Schell and Blumberg  1988) the Navajo have acquired halogroupX through admixture with northern Amerindian populations.  This could have occurred during or after recent migration (1000 years ago) that brought the ancestors of the Navajo from the Alaskan and Western Canada to the southwestern United States. An Amerindian origin of the Navajo hX is also supported by the fact that the Navajo sequences are very similar, if not identical, to those observed in some Ojibwa.  Also the homogeneity of the Navajo sequences suggests that the Navajo acquired hX very recent, 1000 years.
Unlike the four main Native Americans  haplogroups ,A,B,C, and D, X is not strongly associated with East Asia.The absence of X2 in Asia is one of major factors causing the rethinking of the peopling of the Americas.
Anomalous Native American Lineages now identified also among Mi’kmaq Natives.   X, the signature of a Canaanite people whose center of diffusion was the Hills of Galilee, correlating with Jews and Phoenicians. Harvard University professor Barry Fell in his book, “Saga America’ published 1980, presented historical epigraphic, archeological and linguistic evidence suggesting links between Greeks and Egyptians and the Algonquian Natives in Nova Scotia, Acadia and surrounding regions around the mouth of the St. Lawrence Seaway; particularly the Abnaki (white’) and Mi’kmag Natives. He noted as early as 1976 in his study’ America B.C.’, that the Greek historian Plutarch recorded ” Greeks had settled among the peoples of the Western Epeiros”.  Fell inferred from “Plutarch’s passage” these Greeks had intermarried with the Natives and had adopted their language, and had blended  their own language with it.
Haplogroup X is found in approximately 7% of native Europeans,[3] and 3% of all Native Americans from North America.[4]

Overall haplogroup X accounts for about 2% of the population of Europe, the Near East, and North Africa. Sub-group X2 appears to have undergone extensive population expansion and dispersal around or soon after the last glacial maximum, about 21,000 years ago. It is more strongly present in the Near East, the Caucasus, and Mediterranean Europe; and somewhat less strongly present in the rest of Europe. Particular concentrations appear in Georgia (8%), the Orkney Islands (in Scotland) (7%), and amongst the Israeli Druze community (27%). Subclades X2a and X2g are found in North America, but are not present in native South Americans.[5] The greatest frequency of haplogroup X is observed in the Druze, a minority population in Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria, as much in X1 (16%) as in X2 (11%).[6] The Druze also have much diversity of X lineages. This pattern of heterogeneous parental origins is consistent with Druze oral tradition. The Galilee Druze represent a population isolate, so their combination of a high frequency and diversity of X signifies a phylogenetic refugium, providing a sample snapshot of the genetic landscape of the Near East prior to the modern age.[7]

See more at:
How did haplogroup X get to North America? Genetic anthropologists suggest a early migration westward from Europe/Mediterranean.  By looking at the various mutations within haplogroup X, scientists are able to use that ‘genetic clock”, when they would have arrived.  They came up with two time frames-between 36,000 and 21,000 years ago and between 17,000 and 12,000 years ago.  There is more work to do on mtDNA,  more genetic markers to explore.  DNA evidence  does not lie,it can’t be faked.   The Mediterranean language and writing similarities, the unexplained North African runes, the Copper Culture all fit with the DNA evidence.

Why History is WRONG! Do you really think man walked on water?

If you follow the daily newspaper headline such as our newspaper at Investigating History Daily, you will find new articles emerging about ancient DNA markers being found in North American and South American Peoples.  As for me, I am not shocked.  In fact the only shock is why did it take so long to have enough evidence past ancient symbols and artifacts found in the Americas to finally admit it?


But alas the system never wants to back down and modify.  Case and Point:  The photo above.  This photo is the new rendering of how people migrated to account for the new DNA, but did they tell the truth that ancient man was sailing the globe?  No, they just elongated the tip of the arrow on the map to go further south.

Here is the smoking gun place way at the end of the news release by Archaeology magazine today:

“It is a surprising finding and it implies that New World populations were not completely isolated from the Old World after their initial migration. We cannot say exactly how and when this gene flow happened.”  They admit the cannot figure it out WHEN THEY HAVE TO FIT IT INSIDE THE OLD SYSTEM.

HINT ARCHAEOLOGY MAGAZINE- the evidence chain is not broken the SYSTEM IS BROKEN.

Here is the first part of the story released by Archaeology Magazine:

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK—A new large-scale genome study is adding to the debate over how the peopling of the Americas occurred. An international team of scientists sampled several present-day Native American and Siberian populations, in addition to ancient DNA samples from across the Americas. “Our study presents the most comprehensive picture of the genetic prehistory of the Americas to date. We show that all Native Americans, including the major sub-groups of Amerindians and Athabascans, descend from the same migration wave into the Americas. This was distinct from later waves that gave rise to the Paleo-Eskimo and Inuit populations in the New World Arctic region,” Maanasa Raghavan of the Centre for GeoGenetics at the University of Copenhagen said in a press release. The results also indicate that the initial migration took place no earlier than 23,000 years ago, when Native Americans split from East Asian and Siberian populations. Ancestral Native Americans may then have been isolated in Beringia for some 8,000 years, since the oldest archaeological evidence in the Americas is about 15,000 years old. The study also found that some 13,000 years ago, this population split into northern and southern branches. Gene flow between some Native American groups and present-day East Asians and Australo-Melanesians was also detected. “It is a surprising finding and it implies that New World populations were not completely isolated from the Old World after their initial migration. We cannot say exactly how and when this gene flow happened, but one possibility is that it came through the Aleutian Islanders living off the coast of Alaska,” added Eske Willerslev, who headed the study. To read more about the peopling of the New World, go to “America, in the Beginning.

At some time the history hiding and the mumbo jumbo must stop and we have to rethink and fully embrace ancient man COULD sail the World and thus we find the gene diversity we do.  We did not walk 10,000 miles in frozen solid waste with no resources.

What say you?

Pack your HEAD with History! July 4th Holiday Weekend INFORMATION BUFFET!

As we all get ready to depart for our July 4th Holiday vacations with family and friends, we will invariably have down time, travel time, layover and even times when we need to get away from “family”, so below are some of our greatest hits with our FORBIDDEN TRUTH-HIDDEN HISTORY radio program and our educational videos.  Take a look, play on your Bluetooth in your car or at the airport and feast on History!  I am posting and audio and a video alternating:  ENJOY!

Train YOUR EYES to recognize Ancient History (and how not to use 2000 year old symbols as park benches)

Over my years as a professional explorer I have come into contact with sites which are great antiquity yet people walk over them all the time and have no idea just how ancient and important they are to history.

To understand this, best to see some innocent examples, of just how easy it is to miss history right under your nose and funny enough it is STRENGTH TRAINING of those two orbits above your nose which make all the difference in the world; we offer the following photographic evidence.

Photo example ONE:  This photo was taken last year on Oak Island and we all know Oak Island is very historic in nature.  I am going to show you the PHOTO in its native shot first:

Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 2.44.06 PM

Now let’s look at the very same photograph with a different set of eyes (since this whole article is about TRAINING YOUR EYES TO RECOGNIZE ANCIENT HISTORY)

rock scars meme

Now for a little decoding:

First you should know that ALL of the stones noted with arrows contain very ancient symbols.

RED ARROW:  This stone, represented by the ORANGE ARROW is a few things.  It contains ancient symbols which will be shared in a different photo, but the stone itself is a man-hallowed out basin which holds a significant amount of water.  So why the RED ARROW?  The white marks are where the local contractor pushed the stone around with a small loader dozer and NO IDEA the stone was a scared monument, important to history or contained ancient symbols.

The fellow in the green shirt, sitting upon the rock and its center bowl as if setting in the morning upon a toilet bowl, has no idea this rock is significant to history.  Why? Because the “historian” on the island, has no idea about symbology, ancient monuments and other than not actually being a historian, no one on site is trained in the ancient languages, symbols or simple artifact identification.  Yes, every site must go through an evolutionary process.

So take this photo.  In this next photo it is where we originally found the historic stone monument.  It was not left in its original place but was moved behind some older shacks and left there for decades.  In the photo we are showing Charles Barkhouse the significance of the stone (this was our first official series visit to Oak Island and later it was moved to the Museum front, where you see it used as a seat now).  This stone sat less than 20 yards from the war room entrance (which is the old museum building) unnoticed for decades.  Why unnoticed?  Not a single trained set of eyes to recognize ancient symbols and languages and what was under foot are employed on the island.  THUS the topic for this article and the video training lessons below to TRAIN YOUR EYES TO RECOGNIZE.  So, here is the before and after of the stone:

Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 3.01.27 PMwater basin cerimonial charles

The blue arrows in the scene show clearly how this particular stone has been man modified to hold water and possibly other more sacred ceremonial items.  However, the next two photos are more telling:

Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 3.01.43 PMrock w carving charles

One can clearly see the stone carving upon the “face” of the “ceremonial stone”.  They were carved to tell the story of the stone and quite possibly its use.


The technology we use to capture and decode the symbols is the Go!Scan device you saw us use on History Channel.

Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 2.58.06 PMScreen Shot 2015-06-18 at 2.58.37 PM

The Go!Scan device by Creaform is the tool to use to professional lift and duplicate intricate carvings and symbols from the face of stones, tombs, crypts and ancient artifacts.

Drawing you attention back up to three photos above, the bowl shaped ceremonial stone hidden in plain sight on Oak Island, one can clearly see just how much of a large volume the stone was carved out of the stone.

Here comes the significantly perplexing situation with signs, symbols and the professional ability to actually be able to recognize artifacts important to history:

the Canadian government sent an archaeologist to the island; he walked and inspected the entire island and filed a report which states the following “there is nothing of archaeological interest on Oak Island”.

Jaw dropping I know, but maybe because Oak Island has so long been considered a hoax and joke in Nova Scotia, that even the government and government archaeologists do not take it seriously, but I digress.

How is one to take such a statement?  From our standpoint there are numerous ancient languages and symbols upon countless Oak Island large stones, boulders and monoliths and EVEN one stone which have intentionally blown apart to try to keep other treasure hunters from cracking the secrets of the Island; yet even in both the blown apart rubble and the old photos of the blown apart rubble the ancient languages and symbology are still present and identifiable.

The situation boils down to the following:

If someone is not trained in the visual identification of ancient languages and symbols they will walk right past them and never know they are there.  The best case and point is the ceremonial bowl with carvings, obviously the local archaeologist was oblivious to the identification of such because looking over his schooling, certifications and accreditations there is zero training evidence in ancient languages and symbology.  No wonder he would miss such.  The on island historian, who has no training as either a historian or in artifact identification cannot be faulted either.  Over all, there is so little training on ancient symbology and ancient languages no wonder they are walked over and sat upon every single day.

When we announced there were numerous ancient symbols and languages upon oak Island we were of course attacked, but those who consider themselves “in the know”.  The day we started posting such findings, just as these symbols on an ancient stone found on Little Mash, the next door neighbor island (see photo) the Facebook groups went wild.  Both for the symbols and for those who think they know the islands inside and out.  My in boxed when ding ding ping crazy as fans started telling me that a guy who’s Facebook picture was of him in a Captain Crunch Uniform was bashing us as “idiots”, since he played all over those rocks and island (including Oak Island) and there were no such symbols. signs_mash

I entered the group and found out the Captain Crunch Uniformed fellow was actually a local well known Mason  (and the uniform was his Masons Uniform) who is either a Senior Warden Brother or the Grand Magical Worshiped Master (I could be wrong on the titles I do not know which one he claimed at the time) but, seems he not only grew up running around Oak Island but is an actual island owner descendant and he swore he crawled and played all over every stone on the island and would of noticed symbols and such, if they really existed.  What that goes to show, for example using his age of 75 or so, is that if your eyes are not trained, they can easily miss the ancient and esoteric and in 75 years of being there, playing there and possibly sitting on the same symbol loaded rocks like the tourist was sitting upon on the island; that ancient symbols can be right under your nose (or bum) and you never ever know it.

So, how does one train their eyes to learn to recognize authentic symbols and ancient languages when they are in the field.  Video Flash Cards.

Just like you learned to first recognize words, numbers and letters aw a child with flash cards, we have developed video flash cards (so you can do it on your PC and cell phone) and it is simple as platy, watch and train your eyes.

If you do this you will open your eyes to a massive hidden world of truth around you of just how ancient the Americas really are and the real truth about America BC.

(and then, if you were the parent I told on oak island to get your child off the stone and to wash off the ice cream that he let melt down into a 2000 year old symbol upon the face of the rock, that I was not being mean, I was protecting history!)


Could some of the Oak Island Treasure Artifacts be FAKE? The ArtiFACTS, ArtiFAKES and unbelievable, ArtiFRAUDS!

If you were to print out the documents available online relating to the inside documents of the various treasure hunting teams who have expended millions in an attempt to find and recover the “treasure hidden away on Oak Island, Nova Scotia” one could easily fill a small two drawer file cabinet.  However, what you may NOT know is there are rooms and rooms of file cabinets with documents, journals, reports, studies and a “treasure trove” of information relating to all of the “ArtiFACTS and ArtiFAKES” found on Oak Island and some may surprise you as being downright ArtiFRAUDS!

In a ratio that can easily be in the “thousands to one” there is a wealth of smoking gun evidence of what the Oak Island Mystery really is, what lay beneath the infamous island and, more important what has been found and recovered upon the island.  In told, there has be over $189,000,000. That’s One Hundred Eight Nine Million Dollars invested in Oak Island to try to decode its mystery.  Simple math deduces that number is $804,000 a foot dug down to “something” or $31,500,000 million for each person killed by the search in modern times.  Those are some powerful numbers.


But first let’s do a dictionary check (how I am using the words I have chosen for labels):

  1. ArtiFACT – a real, bonafide, recovered item of an old age which helps decode and describe the mystery and goings on upon Oak Island, and;
  2. ArtiFAKE – this can have two meanings (a) not really an artifact at all, yet called one by press, TV or writings; and (b) possibly an artifact, yet grossly and falsely identified wrong, and;
  3. ArtiFRAUD – simple – the items, things, stories and such used to get people to continue to invest in the “Big Dig” upon Oak Island.

However, you do need to know HOW to shift through the information.  For that you need to know these few things:

  1. In the past, when historic finds were made which changed history, the system and academia would “hide the news or results” to keep the public from knowing the real story, or;
  2. If the information leaked to the public, then the system and academia would just label the artifact or find “a forged or faked item” and push the public away from the story, and;
  3. Or if the finder is effective in getting the story “out to the public” then the system and academia will work to attempt to discredit and stain the image and reputation of the discoverer (just read what is going on with our recent “Minoans in America” information release and artifact discovery).

There is one MORE level to consider (in this Social Media day and age), those who found the artifacts, had the artifacts or possess the artifacts getting “called out” and their actions in the face of such information:

  • When “discoverers or land owners” want to hide finds they tend to go radio silent or off the public radar to try to hide the information and pray it does not get discovered, and;
  • If the information gets out and is not in their control, they too will do the very same thing the system and academia do, i.e., demonize or vilify the party releasing the information and attempt to discredit to change the stories focus away from the real issue at hand.

There is one new level in today’s society, being that we are all connected by social media and the releasing of information is both easier and wider than ever.  The offending party (those withholding information, artifacts, discoveries or supporting those who have looted artifacts and have concealed them) if they are involved in social media the you can tell something BIG is brewing and about to pop, when all of a sudden y0u cannot see information from trusted sources and their posts and information is “curiously absent”.  Why absent? The reports, information and knowledge is hidden so as to help keep the information from making it into the public forum or focused engaged Social Media Denizens.  (Pay close attention to these trends, such as when an Archaeological Magazine deletes posts or does not allow certain organizations to post).  This trend is VERY TELLING and a simple “site search” reveals the lack of posts and inforamtion being hidden and suppressed (look at posting dates).

With all the TV coverage of the series and the Big Reveal, in Season Two of Curse of Oak Island, by our team of the “visibility and provability” of  “something HUGE being below” in the bowels of this abused, angry and ambushed island.  But even with our team and work being able to bring the first verifiable physical clues of “something monumental below” there are OTHER artifacts which have already been found which would blow your socks off – the problem is – they have been looted from the island and others intentionally destroyed and hidden from others to “keep this mystery from being fully and professionally solved”.

Yes, I wrote the truth – there are numerous Oak Island artifacts you have never heard about, nor seen, nor been turned over the government since the did not “fit” the “prevailing theory” of the day when the various teams were seeking the treasure and “the investors”.  This first article and video (in a series of 5) is an attempt to bring to light the various ArtiFACTS, ArtiFAKES and ArtiFRAUDS associated with Oak Island, but more importantly is directly from our report for our UNESCO World Heritage Report (yes, will be available for download soon) and our internal report for a Canadian Law and Legislation Review, since specifically, according to Canadian law, protected archaeological resources include all evidence of human occupation that comes out of the ground (or underwater), with the only exception in Nova Scotia, where buried treasure is not defined as “archaeology” but is subject to similar reporting requirements.  But to us, working to preserve an industry, occupation and artifacts which may change what is written about history as we know it, there are numerous items which have been “stolen and hidden” from the system.

For us, we have little concern with the dividing up of the “gold, silver and precious metals”; but we DO have IMMENSE concern for artifacts which would prove beyond the shadow of a doubt the antiquity of Oak Island and monumental discoveries like “Ancient Mariners visited Oak Island”, “Roman Ships came to Oak Island” and better yet, “Fleets from the reign of King Solomon came to Oak Island”.  Why be concerned?  Certain artifacts which have been found on Oak Island prove up the above cases, but due to lack of ethic, lack of skills, or lack of professional help and guidance throughout the past numerous decades, important history has slipped through the cracks.

It is those cracks which must be sealed and mortared and it is the missing, lost and looted artifacts which must be returned for historical, scientific and archaeological study.

It has taken me well over a year to reveal this information and to decide the very best way to approach such a delicate and potentially “powder keg storeroom” of information but at the end of the day it is the recorded history and the CORRECT AND FACTUAL recording of history which must outweigh any misplaced loyalty for the “legend, process, system or fellowship” of seeking that which Oak Island so wonderfully camouflages.

Starting with small steps, and in accordance with federal and international reporting requirements, we are releasing the information in a manner that those who really “own the artifacts and the history” (the people of the world) can being to understand the magnitude of Oak Island and it’s place in the Pantheon of History and we have always said and continue to say “Oak Island is the proverbial tipping point in the complete rewriting of history as we know it!”

Below is a short 3 minute video which will begin to help you understand the difference in the various Oak Island ArtiFACTS, ArtiFAKES and ArtiFRAUDS.  A simple example is the “myth as a treasure clue” of the Coconut Fibers.  The simple reason for the presence of those fibers on the Island is there were numerous families and individuals who were PRIVATEERS, who owned lots on the island and used Oak Island to hide their off loading of ships they captured and the “booty” they were unpacking and carting off to the main land to sell.  As professionals and both a news and publishing organization, our goal is to see ALL the Oak Island artifacts come to light and many to be returned to the public.

NOTE:  Just because there is a plausible reason the Coconut Fiber is is on Oak Island, do NOT make the mistake of thinking Oak Island is not “treasure laden” – it is, but the “treasure” may have a different definition than those who searched for it in the past had.  Enjoy.


Oak Island Treasure Artifacts STOLEN? Curse of Oak Island

Late December last year we came in contact with a “Professional Treasure Hunter” from Nova Scotia Canada who had an incredible story to share with us.  His story?

He used an old Masonic Document to decode exact directions to multiple hidden treasure spots on Oak Island and on surrounding Islands in Nova Scotia.  In fact, he has some local credibility since he was featured on Nova Scotia TV as a “credible treasure hunter” with skills that enabled him to find out the truth about Oak Island.  In the interview, they did not cover that he had relocated and recovered precious artifacts, but when we interviewed him for our book research and for our archaeological and history news service, we were amazed at the details he revealed to us.

IMG-20121107-01656Could this be true?

The Nova Scotia Treasure Hunter, Terry Sabine who has several treasure hunting groups on Facebook and numerous fake ID pages and groups, shared the facts of his find and then revealed some startling additional information.  He claimed to of actually made recoveries and had metals down some of the precious artifacts and sold them for wads of cash and other priceless artifacts he had buried under a family members driveway to hide them from others until he could find buyers.

In documenting this story, since we DO know SEVERAL REAL OAK ISLAND ARTIFACTS have gone missing and were never reported to Nova Scotia Authorities (new story coming), we took his claims as real and authentic.  That is, until we started to dissect his claims, one by one.

As confirming evidence he provided YouTube Videos of him melting down what seems to be precious metals, and even sent us photos of his ill gotten financial windfall (see photo of him holding wads of cash.  We first broke the story in our radio program here:  (NOTE: almost a half a million have listened to this broadcast) , but we have lifted just the retelling of Mr. Sabines claims and you can listen on the link below:

We have no way to really verify his claims without the help of legal authorities and antiquity authorities of Canada, but Mr. Sabine sure went to great steps to send photographic evidence of his “claims”.  We will leave the judgement up to you and you listening to the facts.  To us, Mr. Sabine seems inauthentic, lacking credibility and his story does not pass scrutiny, BUT we do wonder what golden artifacts was his YouTube video showing him melt; AND where did he get the enormous wads of cash he was eagerly showing in his photo?  Could he really of found, destroyed and sold off priceless artifacts?  Does he not know this is an international crime? And WHY would he POST online such information and evidence?  You listen to our report and and you decide.

On Thursday, July 22, 2011  Global News Canada did s news story on Mr. Sabine

Here is another story about Mr. Sabine and his Oak Island Claims on Canadian TV NEWS:


Minoans Discovered America! Smoking Gun Artifacts and Over 1000 DNA Testable Skeletal Remains Prove Explorers Claim (100+ Photographs which will change how you view History)

 Minoans discovered America 4000 years BEFORE Columbus!  Documented ancient artifacts excavated during the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Presidential years provide archaeological smoking guns proving the incredibly ancient history of foreign explorers in America.  

cc9 and have recently revealed what are being called “smoking gun archaeological evidence” which proves the ancient race of peoples called the Minoans were the first to discover, capitalize upon and trade goods to and from the Americas.  This blog article is actually 9000 words long, however you do not need to attempt to read all 9000 words since this article is narrated by the accompanying audio blog narration. ( You can READ this blog, LISTEN to this BLOG, or WATCH the video version – all posted below).  EACH PHOTO will enlarger when clicked.

In preparing for this research information release, some 60,000 artifacts found here in the United States of America had to be searched, documented and compared to their ancient matching counterparts found at various ancient archaeological sites in Europe and the Middle East.  Archaeologist, Explorers, Anthropologists and Academics have long been squabbling over the “origins” of what is know as the “Copper Culture in America” and the “who” was responsible and “when” did it take place?  Always a point of contention in the heated debate was there were no “smoking gun artifacts discovered” like verifiable “foreign ancient culture artifacts”, the “remains of ancient mariners visiting America”, discoveries of “Ox Hide Copper Ingots known in the Middle East and Europe” found in America, no “evidence of ancient copper smelting or molding facilities in the Americas” and specifically; “no ancient tombs, art or writings from such proposed ancient mariner cultures visiting the Americas”.

Screen_Shot_20150216_at_81622_AMThese “missing smoking gun artifacts” often cited by Archaeologists as examples of why “Ancient Mariner and Mining Cultures did NOT visit America” have now been shot down with the archive audits research conducted by J.Hutton Pulitzer of  Pulitzer has recently been seen on the History Channel in the series “Curse of Oak Island” bringing ancient symbols, glyphs and archaeological evidence to bear to the mystery known as “the Oak Island Treasure” and according to Pulitzer and his team the “goings on, on Oak Island” may date back to 596 B.C.  But, now Pulitzer has come forth with archaeological evidence which has been hidden away and lost to time which dates back to between 8,000 and 6,000 B.C., which seems to irrefutably prove “Minoans were the rightful discovers of America”.  ALL PHOTOS IN THIS BLOG can be CLICKED ON TO ENLARGED.  (The EXPLORATION TEAM can be found HERE and HERE, the RESEARCH TEAM found HERE and the FACEBOOK GROUPS discussing these findings and photos can be found HERE and HERE and Commander Pulitzer can be reached HERE) has released a hour long lecture and presentation of the initial facts on both an audio and video blog of “Commander Pulitzer’s” findings.  In this blog, we are going to present over 100 archaeological photograph exhibits which support the findings of Pulitzer. and Pulitzer will be delivering their full case files and findings in a scheduled book titled “Minoans in America – the real story of Ancient America”  The photographs below are presented in sequence in accordance with Pulitzer’s lecture called “The Minoan Mystery – Minoans in America”.  They are presented here and we highly suggest you click the PLAY button in this blog (as seen in the same opening picture of this article) and listen to the presentation, dates, facts and findings as you inspect the archaeological photographic evidence.

The premise of Pulitzer’s findings are “the Copper Culture of America fueled the Bronze Age”.  For comparison purposes, Pulitzer presents known “Minoan artifacts” and the “Minoan Artifacts found in America”.  In his presentation of the facts, Pulitzer presents hard artifacts, archaeological facts, dating, sourcing, DNA evidence, comparative studies and comparison of world famous known Minoan Shipwreck Artifact inventories compared with mislabeled Minoan artifacts found in the Tennessee Valley at what seems to be “an ancient Minoan encampment and manufacturing port/facility).  The most conclusive evidence is the discovery of the Minoan mining plants, molds and ox hide ingots which are exact matches to those found in the ancient world 6000 miles away and 6000 years apart.

The idea of posting all these photos is to allow you the reader (or listener) to be able to see the evidence and the artifact finds, and make your own decisions.  Additionally, posted are numerous photos of other pottery and artifacts; so one may begin connecting patterns and symbols and watch the connection occur.

In his audio presentation Pulitzer comments “Archaeologist use artifacts, botanicals, glyphs, symbols, language, art, items of manufacture, tombs, burial mounds, burial artifacts, clothing remnants and other items to prove an archaeological theory; and this one site has everyone of these, PLUS the added elements of dendrology, ancient botanicals, DNA and over 7000 known full skeletal remains with 1000 or more relating to the exact Minoan artifacts identified”.  “If there ever was a better open and shut archaeological case this discovery is it!”

Columbus’s Secret about America. Did Columbus have Ancient Navigational Information?

We ALL know the story of “Columbus discovering America” is baseless and an often repeated myth which is unfortunately still taught in schools this very day as being “historically correct”.  What is in question is the “real discover(s) of America” and not did Columbus actually make it to America.  Unquestionably, Columbus did make it to America.  However, we may be looking at Columbus in the wrong way.  The questions which should be asked about Columbus and his Voyage to America are:

1.  How did Columbus know of such a distant land?

2.  Did Columbus have “inside information” which enabled his voyage?

3.  Was Columbus really after “India and Spices” or where there a more “secret reason” for his voyage to America?

Columbus had an Oak Island Secret. Did Columbus know the Ancient Mariners way and a secret sacred geometry and navigation secret as well? What was Columbus’s real mission? Where is Columbus find the ancient maps and the ancient directions to the “Way of King Solomon”?

History or Entertainment? Which comes first, Truth or Compelling Content?

The only way I can state this properly is “I have a feeling of being under duress”.  Duress caused by straddling life with one foot in each world I work in.  The world of History (Exploration, Discovery, Recovery and Documentation) and Entertainment (TV, TV Series, and Mass Media in general).

In one world everything is about getting the facts straight, documented and presented in a logical, chronological and unwavering manner.  In another world, it is not about any of those things, but only about “continual consumption” of an entertainment product.  Personally, my view of entertainment is “it is okay to entertain, as long as you give back to the viewers or audience helpful information, wisdom, understanding or something they can apply in their own lives; or the pursuit of their own passions”. Then it is at the very least a two way exchange.

Media the the driver of a widened and increased audience, but in a society increasingly lost and failing, where does honesty and truth fit in?

For example, as a historian and explorer, if I was to go out and find (lets say for illustrative purposes) the fossilized remains of a T-Rex and this particular T-Rex has a human (not caveman, not even Neanderthal) locked in it’s jaws.  At the moment of conflict, these two – in the middle of the throws of a death struggle- were caught in a cataclysmic event which forever memorialized them in stone by turning them into fossils.

Of course, you fully understand this would be a highly controversial find.  Much of the world believes we evolved from Dinosaurs and man and dinosaur did not coexists in the same time period.  But, here in front of eyes, is the living proof of such.  It would be monumental and in many ways it would be very educational and enlightening.

Now comes the conflict and I am not talking about the guaranteed religious and science conflict of a find such as this, but the history versus entertainment conflict.

Here is the set up for the conflict.  From a TV standpoint the finding of such a “smoking gun” artifact is off the charts, both in engagement and entertainment value.  However from an entertainment value, Producers don’t want the reveal and answer to a question which has been around for ages, i.e., “Did man evolve? Did man coexists with the dinosaurs”.  Entertainment demands you never rush to the reveal.  Why?  Entertainment demands that all viewers stay engaged as long as possible, meaning “evolutionists stay engaged”, “creationists stay engaged” “alien theorists stay engaged” and even the “conspiracy theorists” must stay engaged until the very last minute (no one wants to lose any audience share for any reason).

So there is NO path to definitive answers, since definitive answers will surely “shorten” the entertainment value and the entertainment lifespan and cause viewers to drop like a rock.  Here is the catch, and yes there is always a catch.  HOWEVER, TV is the platform to get millions upon millions engaged, because unfortunately people get their news (and their education and beliefs these days) from their set top boxes.

Now see the issue?  Play the game, reach more people – albeit painfully, with incredible rules, regulations, conditions, rights to edit, re-edit and even edit to make the end result be different from the findings.  Gain for following the “entertainment not answers” path?  Millions of viewers!  Pain for following the “factual history’ (regardless where it takes the story) path?  Limited air-time, or actually no air-time at all, because you “are not a team player”!  These are real daily scenarios in the trenches where history and entertainment collide.

So here are my questions for you:

1.  Which path would you choose?

2.  Which path would you choose, knowing one usually is at the expense of the other?

3.  Which is the right thing to do?

4.  Which is the smart thing to do?

5.  Which will have the most impact on people?

6.  Which will have the most impact on history?

7.  Which could you live with at the end of the day? or the end of your life?

And finally, with the goggles of “How can we have a productive and truthful future, if all our history is a lie?” on your face – looking out at the world and the people who depend on you (fans, family, fellows or otherwise), what decision would you make.

Now you understand the conflict and the duress.  How do you feel?  What say you?
