We have become quite used to pronouncements of doom, from scientists predicting the sixth mass extinction due to the measurable effects of climate change, and from religionists declaring the apocalypse due to a surfeit of sin. It’s almost impossible to imagine these two groups of people agreeing on anything other than the ominous portent of their respective messages. But in the early days of the scientific revolution—the days of Shakespeare contemporary Francis Bacon, and later 17th century Descartes—it was not at all unusual to find both kinds of reasoning, or unreasoning, in the same person, along with beliefs in magic, divination, astrology, etc.
The Naica Mine of the Mexican state of Chihuahua, is a working mine that is best known for its extraordinary selenite crystals. Located in Naica in the municipality of Saucillo, the Naica Mine is a lead, zinc and silver mine operated by Industrias Peñoles, Mexico’s largest lead producer. Caverns discovered during mining operations contain crystals of selenite (gypsum) as large as 4 feet (1.2 m) in diameter and 50 feet (15 m) long.
Formation of the crystals Naica lies on an ancient fault and there is an underground magma chamber below the cave. The magma heated the ground water and it became saturated with minerals, including large quantities of gypsum. The hollow space of the cave was filled with this mineral-rich hot water and remained filled for about 500,000 years. During this time, the temperature of the water remained very stable at over 50 °C (122 °F). This allowed crystals to form and grow to immense sizes.
Baffled astronomers made the announcement that deepened the mystery of the bright spots on the dwarf planet Ceres. They recently claimed that the famous spots blinked at intervals of around nine hours.
With the latest discovery, some UFO hunters suggested that it is a definitive evidence of the theory that bright spots on Ceres are artificial beacons transmitting coded signals. The signals would guide ET spaceships coming in to land at a base on the dwarf planet, the largest body being discovered in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
The unexpected fluctuations in the brightness of the mystery spots were observed in the spectrograph of High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. The widely known spots, called faculae, can be found in an 80-kilometer crater Occator.
Some UFO enthusiasts speculate that it is a signal. It could be a warning signal, a radar tower, or a greeting signal. It must be there for a purpose, according to UFO researchers. Does humanity need to signal back? Continue reading Aliens Sending Out Signals From Ceres
Three unnamed Israeli archeologists, backed by Russian troops, are taking part in the mysterious excavations which are believed to have already unveiled Hebrew engravings and antiquities.
They could use to prove their historical presence in the region according to their common tactic in dealing with different cities. Partnership first then monopoly.
The sources start in their talk to Zaman al-Wasl from the minute the Russians came into Palmyra after they expelled ISIS. Russians hastened to spread and create a base in Palmyra’s historical sites until they established a camp and military base inside the archeological area.
In Palmyra, according to the sources, the Russian soldiers and intelligence worked for a duration with Syrian regime mercenaries and soldiers. During that period, they were partners in robbing and selling archeological artifacts according to their power and military presence; however, this partnership did not last long as Russians revealed their intentions fast. They excluded the regime and singled out power for themselves in the heart of the historical city which is considered a museum full of treasures and antiquities rare to find in the world.

Over the centuries there have been many ancient discoveries that give us a glimpse in the lives of our ancestors. From Sacsayhuaman to the Antikythera Mechanism, the Bagdad battery to the Rosetta stone, the more ancient grounds and artefacts that are found, the more mystery unfolds.
Archaeological discoveries not only allow us to take a peek into history, it also allows us to understand their ancient traditions. Studies that intertwine myth with science have allowed us to connect the past with our present. The more we discover, more questions are raised. Archaeologists have unearthed ancient burial grounds, hidden cities and even scrolls written in a secret language.
Caherconnell Fort have created this infographic that reveals the top ten greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. It includes the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1946. Found in Khirbet Qumran in West Bank, Israel, the ancient texts were written on parchment, bronze and papyrus. These are the earliest known surviving copies of biblical (and extra-biblical) documents that date back to the period when Jesus was born. Written in Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew, these scrolls are believed by many to be the most significant discovery of the past one hundred years.
