To say that UC San Diego archaeologist Geoffrey Braswell was surprised to discover a precious jewel in Nim Li Punit in southern Belize is something of an understatement.
“It was like finding the Hope Diamond in Peoria instead of New York,” said Braswell, who led the dig that uncovered a large piece of carved jade once belonging to an ancient Maya king. “We would expect something like it in one of the big cities of the Maya world. Instead, here it was, far from the center,” he said. (more…)
A newly discovered trove of 16 engraved and otherwise modified limestone blocks, created 38,000 years ago, confirms the ancient origins of the pointillist techniques later adopted by 19th and 20th century artists such as Georges Seurat, Vincent Van Gogh, Camille Pissarro, and Roy Lichtenstein.
Archaeologists from Israel's Hebrew University have declared they found “one of the most exciting archaeological discoveries in 60 years."
Lying in the old Judean desert just down the dusty cliff side, a cave was discovered with broken ancient storage jars, fragments of a scroll wrapping, and a leather tying string. It is being dubbed the 12th cave that once housed Dead Sea Scrolls. (more…)
The Vatican has officially seized power from the Order of Malta. An action that amounts to one sovereign country annexing another. This news comes shortly after the head of the Order, Fra’ Matthew Festing met with Pope Francis and resigned from the Order. Now the Vatican has ceased complete power of the order ending 900 years of sovereignty in what is being called "a brutal power-grab by the Vatican."
The disorder in Malta had started in December when the Vatican demanded that the Knights of Malta dismiss Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager as grand chancellor (the order’s third-ranking official) for distributing thousands of condoms and oral contraceptives through the order’s humanitarian agency, Malteser International.

Researchers from Arizona State University (ASU) have found that the Southwest Native Americans had advanced geometry skills that enabled them to build sophisticated architectural complexes. They were so good in fact, they could be called Pythagoreans.
These findings represent the first potential quantitative evidence of knowledge of advanced geometrical constructs in a prehistoric North American society, which is particularly remarkable given that the ancestral Pueblo peoples had no written language or number system.
Here is an excerpt from an interesting article by Crux Now which states that Pope Francis believes that the greatest threat to the contemporary age is Gnosticism. Francis says that Gnosticism can be found in clericalism, legalism and fundamentalism. It is especially strong among the keepers of knowledge, the doctors of the law, who are more inclined to trust in the power of the world. (more…)
(Source: FBI) - FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael McGarrity of the New York Field Office and Joon H. Kim, Deputy U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, formally presented the Torlonia Peplophoros statue to Generale di Brigata Fabrizio Parrulli of Italy’s Carabinieri in a ceremony today at the New York Historical Society Library. The statue was briefly available for public viewing for the first time in 33 years. The statue will soon return to Italy, where it will be displayed again for the public to view at one of Italy’s prominent art museums. (more…)
In order to keep with the fantastic plastic world, you have to act, dress and look the part in order to fit in with the crowd, or should I say, "hipster crowd." While most of us know that Christmas is supposed to be a time of love, family, and sharing, in reality, here in America, it is mostly about commercialism with the plastic things you buy at the store.
So it is no wonder that it was time to throw out that old nativity set with Jesus, his apostles and the three wise men and replace it with modern figurines who represent our current fake world.
It is called the "Hipster Nativity Set," and you can get your grubby little trendy hands on it for a paltry sum of only $129. Hell, when you compare that price to that latest $700 oversized iPhone that is bulging out of your tight jean pockets, or your over priced beard care products, it's a fricken steal!
"Just imagine the nativity in 2016," the website says. "A lot has changed in the last 2,000 years. For starters, I don’t even think they had iPhones back then, which explains why Joseph didn’t add the birth of Jesus to his Snapchat story. If you love Amazon Prime, and have no idea what frankincense and myrrh (sp?) are, this is the Nativity set for you."
MEET THE LOVABLE CAST
MARY, JOSEPH AND JESUS
If you’ve ever wondered what the very first family Christmas photo looked like, wonder no longer. Fresh off a Whole Foods shopping spree, Joseph is rocking his man bun and finest denim shirt, while Mary shows off her high cheek bones with her best duck face.
THE THREE WISEMEN
It’s crazy to think that the Wisemen followed a star in the sky to find Jesus, rather than using Google Maps, but who are we to judge? These Wisemen arrive to the birth of Jesus in style, rocking their favorite hipster outfits, and tricked out segways.
SHEPHERD & ANIMALS
It wouldn’t be a modern day birth if at least one person wasn’t putting it on Instagram, and luckily, our teenage shepherd has it covered #babyjesus #nofilter. Next to him are some well taken care of animals.
Over the last decade, there have been many people around the world who have been reporting and documenting what are known as chemtrails. These chemtrails are said to be manmade clouds from planes that look like contrails initially, but they are poisonous chemicals being sprayed in the air that are much thicker, extend across the sky and are often laid down in varying patterns of Xs, tick-tack-toe grids etc.
A recent international survey of 3015 people had shown that 17% of people believe in the existence of a secret large-scale government chemtrail program to be true or partly true. (more…)
